Re: Official WrestleMania Thread

Count me in on the Santino fanclub.

Can anything develop w/ JBL & Orton? I suppose one of them would have to turn; but I've always liked heel vs. heel because I'm weird.

Same here man, when he lost it when he saw his family was my boiling point as well.

Did anyone else think HHH was gonna drop Ric and put him in a pedigree. I didn't think or want it to happen but for some reason it wouldn't of surprised me.

I may have missed something because I didn't get to see the beginning of Raw, but I was stunned that Vince didn't come out at the end and thank Ric Flair.

Word is Flair rejected the idea of his match being the main event.

Vince (and Taker, who I noticed did not appear on TV) came out after the live broadcast ended.

Bringing the heels out was one thing, bringing Vince out after (in character) he went after Flair and created this (according to the storyline), it just couldn't work.

Looks like they're preparing for the draft now. CM Punk to RAW and Show to Smackdown for sure.

Re: Official WrestleMania Thread

Does Dynasty still post here? He (or anyone who liked wrestling in the 1970s-80s) should definitely d/l this RAW just to see the end with Race, Horsemen, etc coming out at the end and Flair losing it when his family came out.

Re: Official WrestleMania Thread

i think this should just be the official WWE thread. Thoughts on Raw tonight.

JBL Orton seems retarded.

Santino is still Awesome.

Big Show Khali is so dumb. Big Show is really good, Khali is awful. Just please stop using Khali.

Flair retirement ceremony whre good.

Kendrick and London winning the tag belts is good. Cody Rhodes and Hardcore Holly have no chemistry and Hardcore Holly is awful. They prob dropped the belts cause their splitting up Rhodes and Holly and probably moving them down to ECW/Smackdown.

Re: Official WrestleMania Thread

+1 for the Flair segment tonight being really well done. I don't really understand Vince/UT not coming out till after since Edge/Orton were there in the front row clapping. I even got my friend to tune in who hasn't watched wrestling in years and he was impressed. Word is that Flair didn't know what was going to happen so that was pretty cool to see his surprise with everyone coming down.

Vince-set up the retirement angle, probably wouldn't have made sense to come out.

UT-Only person who still has a gimmick. (Boogeyman and Kane kind of, but Kane does show a human side sometimes.)

Edge/Orton-Storyline wise, they may be bad guys, but they're bad guys who do anything in the ring to win and hold on to the title...sounds familiar.


And for the person asking about Santino's inring, he had a MMA gimmick in OVW, so he has some moves.

Anyone else going to the 4/11 ROH show in Boston? Kota Ibushi's first appearance in America and the main event looks sick!

Is ROH still sick? I haven't seen it since late 2003 when I was really into all the indy wrestling stuff. I see chicago has a show coming up, and will probably check it out as I see many of the same guys.

Re: Official WrestleMania Thread

The roster's changed up a bunch since 2003, and it's still the best indy wrestling in America. American Dragon is the face of the company now, and the Briscoes are at the top of a phenomenal tag division. I think Dragon is touring with NOAH now, though.

They're on PPV now. The main players are Nigel, Dragon, Aries, Briscoes, Age of the Fall (Jimmy Jacobs, Tyler Black, Necro Butcher and Lacey), the NRC (Roderick Strong, Rocky Romero and Davey Richards), Chris Hero and Claudio Castagnoli. 4 star matches galore.

Sounds pretty much how I left it where did Joe, Homicide, Cabana go? I see Punk on cards but thought he was in the WWE now?
