Steph was pretty fantastic in that last segment. Hope you didn't miss her Shao Kahn-esque "FINISH HIM!" right before the Pedigree. In general, she's been pretty great at playing this corporate bitch character.

Oh my god YES. In competition for Line(s) of the Night:
a. THAT
b. "You hit like a GIRL!" Daniel Bryan to Stephanie McMahon
c. Christian: You look like David Spade in a fatsuit!
JBL: What's wrong with David Spade?
Christian: Nothing. I said you look like him in a fatsuit!

(Hint: it's Orton. All the way.)

Is it bad that I'd rather see Batista/Orton/Triple H at Wrestlemania than Batista/Orton/Bryan?

By this point it seems like the ARMBAR has so much notable talent involved that it can't possibly be on the pre-show. If I had to guess, the Mania card will look like....

* Orton/Batista/?
* Bryan/HHH
* Undertaker/Lesnar
* Cena/Wyatt
* Battle royale
* Some kind of multi-woman Divas' title match involving AJ, Tamina and possibly the entire Total Divas' cast.
* Shield vs. Kane and two partners....Harper/Rowan have been suggested as Kane's mates, though the New Age Outlaws also make sense if the Shield is turning on the entire Authority. There's also a slim chance the Shield end up facing each other if Kane orders them into a US title triple threat as punishment, but I doubt WWE would do that when the main event is already a three-man match.

Beyond those, I think you could see Usos/Real Americans on the main card. Everyone seems agreed on the fact that Cesaro will turn at WM, it's just a question of whether it happens in the battle royale or as part of a stand-alone match. Given the Americans' win last night, it could set them up for a title shot there, they lose, Cesaro turns face after and Giant Swings Zeb into oblivion.

That makes up eight matches right there, so boom, there's the Mania card.

The ARMBAR will start on the preshow, get down to about ten men, and carry right on through to the opening of the PPV. That's my prediction.

Someone got a little funky and started a rumor that it would be the Shield versus Kane... and the Ascension. Which makes more sense than the Wyatts at this point (given that introducing two people out of nowhere as motivation makes more sense than these two guys who once kidnapped Kane) - but has a serious weird implication when compared to...

Cesaro is rumored for the ARMBAR, which means... well... you probably shouldn't book the NXT tag champs on the main card if your actual tag champs aren't.

It just seems strange that with five active titles in the company, we may be looking at a Wrestlemania where only one of them gets defended. Even if a Divas title match gets booked, that's no guarantee it actually happens on the card.

I do think a tag title match will get booked, but I bet it ends up on the pre-show.



Everything is awesome.

Amazingly enough, you can field 30 guys in the ARMBAR *without* The Usos, The Brotherhood, The Real Americans, The New Age Outlaws, Harper, Rowan, OR any NXT guys. And you'd only be barely scraping the bottom of the barrel. That's pretty impressive.

With regard to the battle royal, anyone wanna take bets on the percentage of participants that are legends?

    If someone would've pitched a Wrestlemania card three months ago where Bryan wrestles twice and goes over everybody -- while John Cena pisses off into a semi-main to elevate a new heel -- I would've laughed at their unrealistic wet dreams. Now we are living it.


It's funny when you step back & actually look at the big picture with DB. I mean after every WWE misstep with him, the hand of fate steps in without fail & course corrects them back onto the right path every time.

The final segment was outstanding. Indeed, I was pulling for HHH to do a TIE CHOKE on Dannul Brine. But "DROWN HIM!" was pretty epic.

Spoiler Below: Highlight text to read
I just read the SD! spoilers and the Outlaws do help Kane vs. The Shield...so uhmm...we'll see what kind of miracle workers The Shield are if they have to get an amazing Mania Trios match out of those opponents...though I *do* Believe In The Shield.

Don't they say WWE performers tend to do best when they accentuate their natural personality and "dial it up to 11"?

I would LOVE for Paul E. to bring this up next Monday:




Then, for it to lead to him bringing out an urn, kneeling in front of Taker as his new "Paul", saying, "We've been friends forever, Brock. You're on your own!"

Larry lost a "loser gets his head shaved" match to Raven a few PPVs ago, thus the godawful rug.
