A Look Back at 2012 – The Best of 406 Northlane

The Top 10 From 2012

For the last couple of years, I’ve done a yearly recap post taking a look back at my blogging for the year and looking at the “best” posts based on how many views they received.  On the 2010 list, the Top 80’s Action Movies post took top honors.  That same post was at the top of the 2011 list.  What will be in the top spot this year?  Without further fan fair .. let’s get into it. … Continue reading

WrestleMania 28: Recap, Thoughts & Drinking Game Results

WrestleMania 28 Logo

For those of you that are regular readers of the blog here and AREN’T wrestling fans don’t worry… this is the last wrestling related post for a while. With that being said, WrestleMania 28 is officially in the books and it’s time for a recap and a look back at the show that was.  As per usual we built our yearly Beeramid which was epic. First off, I’ll say this was a FAR superior show … Continue reading

The 2012 Beeramid

Beeramid 2012 (10)

WrestleMania 28 was held on April 1st.  And just as the WWE has a tradition of putting on it’s biggest pay per view of the year, Pip and I have started a bit of a tradition of our own… The Beeramid.  And for the 7th time we set out last Sunday night to once again attempt the mighty feat. I have to give HUGE props to my brother Marko for once again joining us for … Continue reading

Long Term Booking: The Rock & John Cena At WrestleMania 30

The Rock & John Cena

So this year’s WrestleMania main event was set a full year in advance.  One day after WrestleMania 27, The Rock and John Cena took to the middle of the ring on RAW the next night and set the stage for this year’s main event.  And while some people (myself included) haven’t really enjoyed a year-long build to this year’s Mania main event, I have a suspicious feeling that this is just the tip of the … Continue reading

The Overbooking Of Hell In A Cell

Undertaker, Shawn Michaels & HHH

As you know by now, HHH and The Undertaker will once again be facing off at this year’s WrestleMania, this time in a Hell In A Cell match.  The WWE has upped the ante one step further by adding Shawn Michaels to this match as the special guest referee.  That’s a very bad decision in my book… and here’s why. First, I’ll preface this by saying I’m a HUGE fan of the Undertaker.  On any … Continue reading

A Month Out From Mania – Previewing WrestleMania 28

WrestleMania 28 Poster

One month from today, the WWE will put on its largest pay per view of the year… WrestleMania!  Miami, Florida hosts this year’s event and once again my basement will host the building of The Beeramid.  And while the full card for the even isn’t set yet, there are quite a few matches that have been announced (or are highly rumored). WWE Championship CM Punk vs. Chris Jericho – This match may very well be … Continue reading

Thoughts On The Rumble

2012 Royal Rumble

We’re a few days removed from the 2012 WWE Royal Rumble pay per view.  As this is the official start to the Road To WrestleMania (and happens to be my favorite PPV of the year) this is one of the 2 shows per year I get (with Mania obviously being the other).  There’s been quite a bit of bad press out there for this show and I really don’t get it.  This was a very … Continue reading

Jericho Vs. Undertaker At WrestleMania 28???

Chris Jericho & The Undertaker

With the (not so) surprise return of Chris Jericho this past Monday on Raw it’s not time to try and figure out who he’s going to go into a program with going into WrestleMania.  Jericho didn’t say a word the other night but conventional wisdom points to a CM Punk feud. But what if that’s NOT who Jericho’s going after.  What if it’s someone less… alive?  The Undertaker perhaps? Hear me out.  I don’t typically … Continue reading

Finally… A Heel Turn For Cena?

John Cena & Zach Ryder

I don’t do predictions all that often (at least out loud) but I think I’ve got one that’s worthy of sharing.  For months now, WWE fans (or at least “smart” fans) have been shouting from the rooftops for John Cena to turn heel. As we all know, he’s headed into WrestleMania 28 to face The Rock and there’s simply no way in hell that Cena’s going to be the babyface in that match.  The WWE … Continue reading

The WrestleMania 28 Drinking Game

WrestleMania 28 Logo

WrestleMania XXVIII (28 for you non-Roman numeral folks out there) will take place on April 1, 2012 in Miami, Florida.  For the 7th time, Pip and I (and for the second year in a row, my brother Marko too!) will once again try to “walk that aisle” and build… The Beeramid. Since WWE announced it’s Mania main event the day after last year’s show (Rock vs. John Cena for those not paying attention), I figured … Continue reading
