——————————————–

Overall – I was telling a friend the other day that I fear for this Wrestlemania being like the 25th anniversary PPV where there are high calibur matches but all were weak in the actual match, this turns out to almost be just like it and like the 25th WM, it was the Undertaker’s Streak match that saved the day

I suspect that the second Rock/Cena match wouldn’t be as alluring as last year’s WM as everyone thought it was just going to be the “Once In A Lifetime”, oh how the WWE love to play with us, not to mention I hear that Rock might get involved in the build up to Wrestlemania 30

I really think that the Undertaker’s Streak has gone on for long enough, Taker should have retired it at 20-0 but I hear that Taker was in need of some funding so they gave him this match as a jackpot for him, I watched on TV not long ago that Taker was coming to the UK on the WM Revenge Tour for the first time in 4 years, as nice is that was, he should really retire his career if he is to not do himself too much damage as he is getting quite old now

WWE manager Paul Bearer passed away

March 6, 2013 Leave a comment

20130306-084533.jpg

Sad news in the world of wrestling as WWE legendary manager, Paul Bearer aka Percy Pringle, has passed away at the age of 58

Paul Bearer was the manager to The Undertaker in his early days and throughout the attitude era whilst making the odd cameo appearance in the later days with Kane

The news was confirmed from WWE themselves on Tuesday, no reason for his passing has been revealed but with his constant health problems due to his weight, I assume it has something to with that if anything

I grew up loving Undertaker and Paul Bearer and I was actually almost in tears, on his twitter and pictures he shows of his family, he was such a kind and amazing individual and I always followed his tweets and photos
It is sad to see such an amazing manager of the WWE pass away and I hope Vince gives him a Hall of Fame position as he damn well deserves it!

Rest In Peace Paul Bearer, we will never forget you….. Oh Yessss!

Match 6 – Kaitlyn vs Tamina (Divas Title)

Match 7 – The Rock vs CM Punk (WWE Title, Rock loose title if he is counted out or DQ’d)

Winner – The Rock

——————————

Overall – I didn’t think that this was a good PPV, it had it’s moment but as a whole, it was okay, the second Rock/Punk match wasn’t as great as the first match back at the Royal Rumble and the fact that there was only one Elimination Chamber match really angered me a little

The 6 man tag was something different, The Shield winning was something I didn’t expected but liked it, Roman Reigns really shined in that match out of the 3 members of Shield, he truly showed potential and that big spear through the wall with Shemaus was painful to watch, it was almost like a Gore Gore Gore from Rhino, it just had so much power behind it!

Anyway, the chamber match that was shown was decent, Jack Swagger winning was something I was 50/50 about, I guess they would push him eventually since he almost wanted to quit WWE from lack of use of his talents as of late, let’s hope they actually give me some serious momentum towards WrestleMania against Del Rio….

Match 4b – CM Punk vs The Rock (WWE Title)

Winner – The Rock

——————————

Overall – A pretty predictable result for this PPV but nevertheless, I enjoyed it, had it’s moments in all of the matches although the tag team title match was pretty much just a filler to prepare for the main event that is the Royal Rumble match

I wouldn’t have minded who won the Royal Rumble but in the back of my head, I just knew that John Cena would win it, he himself said that 2013 will be the year of Cena, thus the WWE make him the superhuman to make him dominate, plenty of surprises during the match too including Kofi Kingston once again defying the usual laws of the RR match by avoiding to touch the floor with excellent athleticism

The Rock/Punk match was predictable for me, I knew Rock would win it, otherwise there would be no point for him to go full time until Wrestlemania, so this title win for him will give me something to go back and give a reason to go full time till Mania….

Next stop – Elimination Chamber

Pre-show match – Divas Battle Royale  for #1 contender  for Divas Title

Winner – Naomi

Match 1 – Rey Mysterio & Sin Cara vs Cody Rhodes & Damien Sandow (#1 contender tables match for Tag Titles)

Winner – Damien & Cody

Match 2 – Antonio Cesaro vs R-Truth (US Title)

Match 3 – Kofi Kingston vs Wade Barrett (IC Title)

Match 4 – The Shield (Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns) vs Ryback, Daniel Bryan & Kane (6-man tag TLC match, pin or sub only)

Winner – Eve Torres

Match 6 – Big Show vs Sheamus (Chairs match for World Title)

Winner – Big Show

Match 7 – Alberto Del Rio & The Miz & Brooklyn Brawler (Yeah, I know, took me by surprise) vs 3MB (Heath Slater, Jinder Mahal and Drew McIntyre)

Winner – Team Del Rio

Match 8 – John Cena vs Dolph Ziggler (Ladder match for the Smackdown MITB case)

Winner – Dolph Ziggler (Thanks to A.J Lee interfering in the match)

——————————

Overall – Most of the matches were okay but the main event with Cena/Ziggler and the TLC match between The Shield and team Ryback were really something to watch, I did read up that there were a few injuries after the PPV ended, Cena has a cut under his eye and R-Truth had a badly grazed knee

There were no title changes in this PPV which did surprise me but none more so than Alberto Del Rio, the man is going full babyface which I thought I’d never see the day since he is such a excellent Heel, I just hope WWE know what they are doing with Del Rio….

————————————

Overall – That was a good PPV, not a strong one but a enjoyable nevertheless, this might be a build up to another NXT like invasion of the WWE after 3 members of the show invaded the PPV and took out Ryback allowing Punk to pin Cena to keep the belt, a bit odd but I’m sure WWE will carry this over with a backstory…. Hopefully a good one at that…. I just hope it doesn’t turn out to be another Nexus, as much as I liked the whole plot of it, it didn’t end well or on a high note

Other than that, the PPV was almost a complete Heel victory which makes a change, and a refreshing one at that, lets hope WWE keeps that momentum going…. Probably not but heck, a man can dream right?
