The Undertaker At Battleground & RAW? Not Good

Undertaker Workout

I’m going to preface this post by saying that the Undertaker is my favorite wrestler of all time. Speculations is running rampant on the Interwebs that The Undertaker will be making his return to WWE either at this Sunday’s Battleground PPV or the following evening on Monday Night RAW. These rumors are fueled by photos such as this one of Taker working out and candidly… looking better than he has in years. This is a very very bad … Continue reading

WrestleMania 27 – The Morning After

WrestleMania 27 Logo

WrestleMania 27 is in the books.  While Pip, my bro and I had an absolute BLAST building this year’s Beeramid (pics here) I have to say the show was pretty lackluster.  It took a good 24 minutes after the show started for the first match to get underway… that’s just WAY too long in my opinion (even with the Rock starting things off). Edge retained the World Title over Alberto Del Rio I thought for … Continue reading

WrestleMania XXVII (27 for those not versed in Roman numerals) will take place on April 3rd, 2011.  I’m thrilled to report that Pip and I will once again renew tradition and construct… The Beeramid.  Just as in past years, we create a set of “rules” that will govern that evening’s events. Without further adieu… it’s on. 5 drinks for a People’s Elbow 3 drinks for any unannounced legend that’s in attendance 5 drinks for any … Continue reading

WrestleMania XII (1996)

Event: WrestleMania XII Date: March 31, 1996 Venue: Arrowhead Pond (Anaheim, California) Attendance: 18,853 Still coming to you as the World Wrestling Federation.  Damn if I can’t remember when the switch came.  I could have sworn it was around this time.  We start off with a Bret Hart/Shawn Michaels promo and go right into the action – No America The Beautiful or National Anthem. Camp Cornette (Vader, Owen Hart and The British Bulldog) (with Jim … Continue reading

WrestleMania 25 Recap – Lackluster Show With A Couple Of Standouts

WrestleMania 25 Logo

Pip, my brother and I got together and carried on our tradition of watching WrestleMania together.  This was the 25th anniversary of the show so were expecting big things and a great show.  What we got (with a couple of exceptions) was neither.  Overall I’d have to say it was a pretty bad show with just a couple of high spots – certainly not what we were expecting from the biggest show of the year… … Continue reading

The WrestleMania 25 Drinking Game

WrestleMania 25 Logo

Pip and I get together every year (just about) and celebrate our geekdom by watching the “Grandaddy of them all” – WrestleMania.  For those of you that don’t know, this is the WWE’s flagship show and marks the end of the wrestling “season” if there was such a thing.  It’s the culmination of story lines that have been going on for quite a while and it’s always the event that is seen by most households.  … Continue reading
