What were the top stories last week?
TNA star MVP is in Ferguson today protesting with the civilians after last night’s police debacle. Continue reading
For whatever reason, I still get excited for Survivor Series. It’s definitely partly nostalgic. I can remember watching just about every Survivor Series. The very first one didn’t show up via my cable company. In 1987, my cable company was one of the only cable companies to call Vince McMahon’s bluff and instead show Starrcade, so there was always a mystery to that first show for me.
I remember playing basketball in high school and coming home from practice to watch the Survivor Series where Hulk Hogan lost to the Undertaker. This was when the show was on Wednesday night. Even though the show doesn’t feature many elimination matches anymore, I think there’s something about the show being the precursor to Thanksgiving, since it’s my favorite holiday.
Will John Cena be kicked out of WWE tonight? Hmmm, not so sure. I imagine Barrett wins semi-cleanly, or that Barrett pisses Cena off and he’s about to hit him but hits Orton instead. And there’s a possibility that the Miz cashes in his title shot.
Here’s what he tweeted today:
Be sure to check out survivor series tonight 8pm only on ppv. Anything can happen.
1. Ted DiBiase Jr. vs. Daniel Bryan
What a fantastic match this was. This was one of the best openers in a long time. Bryan eventually won with the LaBelle lock. They went all at it and he brought the best out of DiBiase. They did a back suplex off the top rope, a suplex outside of the ring, Bryan’s drop kick off the top rope, and there was just a great aggressiveness from both guys. I want to see them wrestle again immediately.
Winner: Daniel Bryan
The Miz came out and hit Bryan with his briefcase and went into the center of the ring to cut a promo. He ran down LeBron James something fierce.
2. John Morrison vs. Sheamus
Yet another really good wrestling match. The story was that Sheamus would be on the offense and then Morrison would get really great small comebacks, but eventually, Sheamus would get the heat back. At the end of the match, Morrison went for the Starship Pain, but Sheamus hit him before he could get all the way up. Sheamus then went for the Razor’s Edge but Morrison caught him with a kick and then a running knee lift that was slightly botched for the victory.
It was hot because of the way the match was booked, but also because of the surprise win. So far, there has been some amped aggression on the show and it’s been great.
Winner: John Morrison
3. Kaval vs. Dolph Ziggler
Alright folks, it is the week of the biggest sports entertainment extravaganza of all time – Wrestlemania XXVI. Today we present our ultimate FightGameBlog preview of the show. Everything you needed to know about Wrestlemania will be right here as we detail all of the matches on what looks to be one of the greatest Wrestlemania events of all time. With GG there in Glendale participating on the festivities, I and my elite group of esteemed genuises will give our predictions on the show.
This year’s panel includes:
Big D – Creator of the Superfriends and Fight Game Blog Co-Founder
GG – Fight Game Blog Co-Founder and Editor
Alan 4L – Fight Game Blog International Correspondent
Duan – Fight Game Blog Superhero
Talon Thorne – Fight Game Blog Columnist
Cactus Jim – Fight Game Blog Wine Tester
Ari Goldstien – Founder and Promoter of Believe Pro Wrestling and the Florida Wrestling Academy
Chessarmy – Founder and Host of QCW Radio (Every Monday Night at 11:30PM Eastern)
Match #1: Unified WWE Tag Team Championship – ShoMiz (The Miz and The Big Show) (c) vs. John Morrison and R-Truth
This was kind of thrown together at the last minute to ensure that these four guys got a spot on the show – specially The Miz. Miz has shown in the past three months that is special and leaving him off this card like they did last year would be a travesty as well as just plain stupid. Morrison and Truth are decent challengers individually, but the reality is that they are a makeshift team that’s just there to most likely do the job and give Miz and Show a big historic Mania win. The tag belts have not been defended on the main card of a Wrestlemania since 2006, and before that since 2002 – so I guess it’s a four year cycle. We’ll see ya 2014!!
Big D – ShoMiz
Duan – ShoMiz
GG – Morrison & Truth
Cactus Jim – ShoMiz
Talon – ShoMiz
Ari – ShoMiz
Alan4L – ShoMiz
Chessarmy – ShoMiz
Notes: All but one have chosen the team of Big Show and The Miz to retain, which I think is a safe bet. Why kill Miz’ momentum against two guys who could possibly be midcard for life (unfortunately)? Question remains – will Danielson be there?
Match #2: Money in the Bank VI: Christian vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. Kane vs. Shelton Benjamin vs. Jack Swagger vs. Montel Vontavious Porter vs. Matt Hardy vs. Evan Bourne vs. Drew McIntyre vs. Kofi Kingston.
Allegedly this will be the final Money in the Bank Ladder Match to take place at a Wrestlemania and boy is it stacked. TEN WWE Superstars will compete to climb the ladder to the top and earn a contract for a WWE Championship Match anytime in the next 365 days. This is basically the match where they throw the midcarders in to get a payday. We’ve got giants, high flyers, and good atheletes rounding out the list. Let’s see what the FightGameBloggers have to say…
