I have an idea for WrestleMania 32. How about Team PCB vs Team Bestie?
Last year, Dana White tried to make a dream fight in women’s MMA. It more than likely wouldn’t have been competitive, but it would’ve been quite the spectacle.
Unfortunately, White couldn’t get the deal done with Gina Carano and thus, we never got to see Ronda Rousey face her. Rousey wanted to give her the opportunity for the title fight even though Carano had been retired solely because of her respect for Carano as a pioneer.
WWE is in the midst of attempting to push women’s wrestling harder than just about any time in recent memory. However, they’re not doing even close to as good of a job as they’ve done with their NXT brand, which featured Bayley and Sasha Banks in the main event at their last WWE Network special. From an emotional standpoint, that match was about as good as you’re going to get. Continue reading
WWE has listed on the official Wrestlemania program a 10 Divas Tag Match: Eve Torres, Beth Phoenix, Kelly Kelly, Gail Kim & Mickie James vs. Alicia Fox, Vickie Guerrero, Maryse, Layla & Michelle McCool.
We expect this match to be added officially on Friday’s Smackdown.
Awesome Kong, current TNA Knockout Tag Team Champion and former TNA Knockout Singles Champion is apparently done with Total Nonstop Action Wrestling.
Kong’s personal twitter states: “I’d like to thank Dixie Carter and all of the employees at TNA for wishing me the very best in my future endeavors.”
It was announced last week that Awesome Kong was going to file a lawsuit against Bubba the Love Sponge for allegedly prank calling her and spewing racial slurs. About a month and a half back, Kong was involved in a backstage physical altercation with Bubba for making insensitive comments about the Haiti relief effort.
Kong is over enough to work numerous independent promotions and/or go back to Japan, where she made her name. The question remains; Will Kong go to WWE? Well she does not exactly fit the mold of the typical WWE diva: 90 lbs, anorexic, blonde, fake boobs. However, I do feel Kong would be an extremely effective monster heel and have really good matches with Mickie James, Beth Phoenix, or even Gail Kim, who she had her best matches with in 2007. She could even help out the Divas who haven’t quite got it down pat. Either way – only good things can happen.
So the 2010 WWE Royal Rumble is now in the history books. The winner this year was the returning Edge, whom I knew would return and eliminate his rival Chris Jericho, but really had no clue that he was going to go on and win the damn thing. There were numerous people who could’ve won and numerous top guys that made sense and it seemed like the WWE overly telegraphed Shawn Michaels to win the thing and he infact did not.
Unfortunately for me, I missed the first 90 minutes or so of the show because DirecTV is run by a buncha Helen Kellers. Amazing that a company that has been around for 2 decades manages to make the same mistakes they made then. Is Michael Cole a VP? I was extremely pleased when Triple H got eliminated and wasn’t one of the final four like he always is, much less the winner. You know how much I hate that man and more importantly you all know how happy I am to see Edge back and what a huge Edge fan I am so yes, it was indeed a good night for me.
What about the rest of the Fight Gamers?
Let’s take a looksie!
Duan a.k.a. “Tall D”
I say this every year and I’ll say it again; the Royal Rumble is my favorite show of the year. There’s something about the intrigue of the Royal Rumble as it pertains to the booking on the Road to WrestleMania.
Underneath the big rumble, The Undertaker and Rey Mysterio should be fun, and Randy Orton vs. Sheamus will be interesting to say the least. Let’s hope young Randall Orton keeps his cool if Sheamus isn’t exactly in the right spot.
1. Christian vs. Ezekiel Jackson
Early on, it was a cat and mouse game with Christian running around like a chicken with his head cut off. They had some fun big man/little man stuff that was fun. When Big Zeke was on the offense, he hit all his big power moves and Christian sold very well. But the match slowed down a little.
They showed some creativity during the finish as Christian was looking to hit the Killswitch/Unprettier and Zeke was looking to hit power moves. Christian finally hit his finisher for the win. It was much better than it had any right being and that’s thanks to Christian, but Zeke was fine too.
To show you how out of touch the WWE can be at times, Cryme Tyme was trying to get into the Royal Rumble and tried to finagle The Great Khali out of his spot so they could both get in. The Great Khali said no, and Ranjin said that they learned their hip talk from watching Family Matters reruns. On queue, Khali said, “Did I do that?” And then Teddy decided to start singing Pants On The Ground at Cryme Tyme. The Miz came out and Teddy told him that he has to face MVP next. Then Khali started to sing, “Who let the dogs out?”
Cody came out and told Randy that he was on board, but Ted wasn’t and Ted wanted to win the Rumble and face Orton for the World Title (of course assuming that he could beat Sheamus tonight).
2. The Miz vs. MVP
