R.I.P. "Rowdy" Roddy Piper.

I can't believe he died. It's crazy. He was one of the wrestlers who I expected to live a hell of a lot longer. Sucks to see him die at such a young age too. 

 

I take it the WWE network is playing a ton of piper stuff?

I don't wish death or ill-health on anyone but it's crazy that guys like Jake Roberts and Scott Hall are still alive. I bet they outlive Hogan.

God damn, that show was IN BRAZIL, Rousey was fighting a Brazilian, and the crowd was STILL chanting Ronda's name at the end. I don't know if she's surpassed Lesnar yet as far as UFC's biggest draw, but if not, if they can find someone who actually seems to pose a threat to her it should be the biggest numbers they've ever gotten.

Was kind of cool the first thing she did post-match was thank Piper.

Rousey vs HHH main eventing WrestleMania would be exciting. For me anyways, I am sure many would hate it, but for me its different and would get people talking. It would easily be better than Seth Rollins vs Roman Reigns. Its a shame that UFC likely wouldnt let that happen :(

I don't know, after what Dana White said to a WWE fan on twitter about wrestling being fake.  It pissed a bunch of people off including Sheamus, Joey Styles, Bully Ray, Tazz and Mick Foley.  It will probably hurt chances that Rousey would show up at next year's Wrestlemania, if they had something planned.

 

Here's the story:

Yea, Dana had said it wouldnt happen already (he said women would never fight in the UFC before too so...) but it would be cool if for whatever reason it did happen. Dana White is a lousy head of a company and him always acting like an angry teenager makes him look foolish.

 

I would imagine that while being better for WWE, having her in a match at Mania, that it would also benefit UFC as well. Extra publicity is never bad. Rousey doing a match with a guy wont make UFC look bad as if she came in and had a hard time beating Stephanie or some other Diva. And having her go over in the main event at WrestleMania will certainly make anyone who doesnt know who she is interested in seeing her next UFC fight.

Good lord it's annoying when wrestlers (and fans) get all fucking sensitive about wrestling being called fake.

So because some low-card dipshits post pictures of themselves bleeding all over the place and tweet it to Dana, that means wrestling isn't fake?

Dana is right. It's still fake. Entertainers that get hurt while fake-fighting are still just entertaining, not participating in legitimate competition. Whining about it doesn't change that fact. Instead of the futile effort of proving it's "not fake," they should be proud that a lot of people (including most UFC fighters) can't do what they do.

But what they do is most definitely NOT real, no matter what injuries they sustain while doing it.

God, next you're going to say ballet is fake because the dancers know all the songs beforehand and have rehearsed with each other for hours before their shows. But if a ballerina is cut, will she not bleed?

I didn't even know he had health problems. He was one of my favorites and it's beyond me why he never had a World Title reign. 

 

Also, Seth Rollins was on the Daily Show again. This time he also awarded Jon his greatest honor (or at least according to his son based on his excitement about the whole thing).

Has anyone heard anything about John Cena? His broken nose looked particularly nasty and I hope it's not too serious. I kind of wonder if that injury will play into Cena's decision to stick with the WWE for a while longer or jump into doing more movies. The guy isn't getting any younger and I'm not really sure how much more his body can take week after week. 

what did he die from. knew he had cancer but thought that was gone.

Went to a local show last night in Indy. It was for an NWA affiliate called Circle City Wrestling and it featured two former WWE superstars, one of which is a hall of famer. So I saw Rikishi and some fat old Gangrel looking guy take on "The Diceman" Ronnie Vegas and some jobber in a pink shirt. It was a terrible match, but Big Kish got in a couple of stinkfaces! I also saw Rob Conway vs. Dru Skillz, which was a pretty decent match and Conway is in great shape, he's still as bland as ever though. 

 

On a side note, tonight at Raw the community at Squared Circle are planning a huge Cesaro section takeover tonight. Should be interesting to see if they can pull it off and show the love for the Swiss Superman tonight in San Jose.

When it comes to what "superstars" do to get in trouble it's so weird and random.

 

I honestly thought Cole was going to be fired or suspended for calling Matthews a fag on Twitter. Nope, nothing. Same with Rollins and the nude photos popping up on WWE's homepage.

Cole really did that? If they erase Hogan for what he did, you would think Cole would be erased for that from WWE history. In fact, Ive already forgotten him. WWE seems to think its ok to make fun of homosexuals and Mexicans though.

 

As for Rollins, they probably just felt embarrassed for him and thought that God punished him enough.

"It was obviously not meant the way it was taken."

 

What other way could it have been taken? Was he calling Mathews a loud and obnoxious Harley biker? Or perhaps insinuating that he was a bundle of sticks? Hmm.

The Piper tribute stuff was glorious - the video was especially good. Neville vs. Seth got quite great - not a classic, but damned if they didn't possibly make a star in Neville here with the near-falls. 8-man tag had some fun lines on commentary, but nothing in the ring. Divas tag had nothing on commentary that was good, but did have some awful lines from each guy. Charlotte beating Nikki was a good move. Rusev beat Henry and Barrett squashed Ryder.

 

Heyman then cut one of his best promos ever calling Taker-Brock too big for WrestleMania, saying that Taker will need Last Rites afterwards and then ACTUALLY READING HIM HIS LAST RITES. This was so great. Paige-Naomi was a match. Main event 6-man tag was fun for the last five or so minutes - first half or so was boring though. Great show overall though - first two hours were well worth the time.

I adore Finn Balor. I was way into Prince Devitt in NJPW.

 

But his goddamned entrance is way too long for TV. Christ a'mighty.

His entrance is longer than most matches.

 

Now imagine that entrance when he has to get down the longer RAW/PPV ramps.

 

Maybe he'll make a surprise appearance at Summerslam so they added an hour to account for his and the Undertaker's entrances.

The funniest one was JBL doing the Nazi salute in Germany and getting canned from his cable news job. That one was especially awesome because you know it drove him (and Vince) fucking INSANE that they were powerless to sweep it under the rug since it fell outside of WWE's control.

I didn't know he was fired. He's still (back?) on Fox News, typically Saturday mornings with the gelatinous specter of what used to be character actor Ben Stein.

Then there was that moment where he taunted Joey Styles until Styles knocked him out...after of course the whole Blue Meanie debacle. Then the Jericho kicking the flag moment in Brazil and Finlay getting canned for having Miz interrupt the national anthem at a military base. 

 

How the hell did Slater duck the rape allegations, by the way?

I assume by not actually raping anybody. He was taken off TV temporarily when that all went down, but he was acquitted.

Speaking of stuff like this, whatever happened to them reopening the case where Jimmy Snuka killed his girlfriend? Did anything ever come from that? I am guessing not since I havent heard about him going to jail or anything for it. A shame for the poor girls family.

Yeah that brought him back after a while. Was just hilarious to see him all bent out of shape over actually having to answer for being a fucking prick for once.

Apparently New Day is doing a "HEYYYYY WE WANT A NEW DAY" call out during their matches now. They group just keeps getting better (go look up "We Want Some Pussy" on YouTube if you don't get that reference).
