I attended WrestleManias 21 and 26 and both were unforgettably great experiences. However, PWG Seven remains the best wrestling show I have seen live.

Anyway, I am in the process of watching every WrestleMania from 1-28. I have the DVD box set of 1-22 and the rest on Blu-ray. I have watched 6 so far. Has anyone else here ever attempted something like this?

I've watched the first 10 or so countless times. A few matches in the teens I can watch time and time again. 17 is amazing, top to bottom. 19 is overlooked (save for HBK/Y2J). 20 is both kinda awesome and kind of a trainwreck - the crowd during Lesnar/Goldberg is still awesome, and it's hard to watch either title match due to Guerrero's death and Benoit being Benoit.

After 20, they all blend together for me. I guess I've aged out of the demo.

I've only been to Backlash 2007. Been looking for the Backlash 2002 DVD myself as well if anyone here has it.

I'd have to say actually watching it on ppv/tv is better than live in a few ways. Live you of course don't get to hear the announcers and such. But you do get preshow stuff/etc. Got to see Ric Flair live and some other stuff. I do have some pictures & video from that still. But there from the worse possible nose bleed seats ever. I could still upload those if anyone would want to see.

I'm actually considering going to Extreme Rules, which is the first PPV after Wrestlemania. From those who go, am I better off getting seats on the floor, or a few rows up?

Something that will include strudel and poontang pie most likely.

For the WWE events I've been to, a few rows up have always been the better seats. Unless you're in the first 2 rows on the floor you'll be constantly trying to look around people.

Don't forget the goddamned signs that pervade WWE shows. I've sat 5th-6th row at ROH events and moved to the bleachers just trying to see around the big-waisted smart marks. 3rd row is quite good, though, especially if they still charge $20 for those seats.

Which is worse: Fandangooooooo promos or Vince thinking racism is funny?


I don't think this is a gimmick for a WM main event, but I like the realism of Jack Swagger, Tea Partier as a character. Maybe it's, to me, the very overt casting of a nutjob right winger as an uber-heel - given both McMahon's politics and WWE's fanbase (uneducated rubes, mostly right - the precise same group that loves fox news and talk radio). The overt linking of Swagger w/ Rush Limbaugh, Alex Jones and Glenn Beck is *fascinating* to me - and I can't believe I totally overlooked the Ann Coulter->Zeb Colter naming trend. Duh on me. Again, I don't think it's WM main event stuff, but I do like some realism, and crazy dumbass tea partiers are real.

Go find a speech from Ted Cruz, skim a few sentences, and tell me that couldn't be word for word a Zeb Colter promo. Or, better yet, Joe Arpaio.

EDIT: truth be told, I'd love to know what a dude like Kane (uuuuuber Libertarian) thinks of the gimmick. Then again, Zeb's persona is a once-trick pony in that he's railing against immigrants, so there's enough room for plausible deniability that it's probably of no consequence.

Onto a more pleasant topic, I can not reiterate just how fucking impressed I am with Cesaro's WWE body of work. His matches make sense, the flow/order/placement of moves show focus and tell a story, and his moves are just so fucking good. I never would have guessed he'd turn out this good - I like him in ROH, but never would have put money down on him being the dude on WWE where I put my work down, look up from the laptop, and follow his matches. Just great stuff from him - without even speaking to the nuances of his character being brilliant. In a world of flippy, spotty, senseless moves meant to pop crowds and get them to tune out to mat wrestling, Cesaro's style is so.fucking.fresh.

I find this new belt acceptable. I wonder if they'll just change out the side plates when a new champ is crowned in lieu of an actual name plate.

Scott Hall after getting off the plane put it in the razor's edge and pinned it for the 1-2-3.

That belt is plain. It's not bad but it's just so bland. Maybe it will look better being worn but I doubt it.

That belt is... whatever. I don't really like it, but I can tolerate it better than the spinner.

If anything, that belt sort of shines a light on a bigger issue: I think it's time for a new WWE logo. It's been, what, 16 years or so with the scratch logo? Time to retire it. The WWE Network logo didn't inspire much confidence in their design abilities, but still. We're past due for a full-on brand overhaul.
