I fell asleep in my living room and briefly woke up to "Ready to Rumble." I was in an out, so I randomly saw scenes of Oliver Platt, Goldberg, David Arquette, and genuinely had no idea what the hell was going on.
Listen! Do you smell something?

Oh god, I remember seeing that movie when it came out on video, and it was awful even at the time.

David Arquette winning the WCW championship really was the final nail on the coffin for the company.

Heck, even David Arquette, as a wrestling fan, know that a wrong move to make and donated whatever money he made in WCW to help out Owen Hart's family, Brian Pillman's family, Droz as well?  Now Vince Russo winning the championship.......  That just made no sense at all.  I still don't know how to justify Vince McMahon winning the WWF Championship in 1999 as well.

Yeah, Russo winning the title was another brilliant idea lol.

Watching WCW from 1999-2001 was just a head scratcher and just terrible for the most part.

So I really enjoyed watching Lesnar get utterly humiliated on live tv.

My knee jerk reaction was feeling a little short changed, but then I started thinking about that wrestlemania match between them which was a snooze fest and then re-think, maybe this was a better option.

THAT WAS THE MOST FUCKING RETARDEDLY STUPID THING EVER.

Fuck WWE, seriously fuck them. You've just thrown away two years of building up a monster and made Lesnar look like a fucking bitch, along with everyone Lesnar has beaten. You brought back an injured old man who hasn't wrestled in a decade to squash the guy who squashed THE UNDERTAKER, ORTON, and JOHN CENA. I knew it was going to be screwy shit when the PPV only had a couple of minutes left, but I cannot believe they have done something so completely thoughtless and stupid as job out Lesnar to a washed up nostalgia act. This is the guy who took two AA's in a row and brushed it off. The guy who took countless superman punches in a row and just laughed. This is the guy who recently won a legitimate UFC heavyweight fight. I've never been more angry about anything I've seen in WWE.

And I already thought it was pathetic that Shane McMahon was in the Survivor Series match as one of the 5 best choices from the entire show of Smackdown, and again was booked to look competitive. But that ending was just the giant turd on the cake.

Well Goldberg signed on for more matches,so it looks like Lesnar will be getting his win back in the future.

From what I've heard so far, the ending was changed to what we saw only after Goldberg agreed to work more dates beyond Survivor Series (Royal Rumble and presumably Wrestlemania as well). I think they could take this in an interesting direction for Brock where Heyman basically claims that they didn't think Goldberg had anything left in the tank and he won't sneak up on them again. Goldberg declines a rematch, saying he's beaten Lesnar twice now. Goldberg enters the Royal Rumble and Lesnar shows up and rage-murders a bunch of people to get at Goldberg and get him eliminated from the Rumble. Lesnar then takes down Goldberg at Wrestlemania.

It just seems like WWE put themselves in a tough spot no matter how they try and redeem Lesner from this one.  Unless there was some injuries, I just don't understand how they couldn't have had a brutal fight last night where Goldberg still wins in the end.  Then they can have Lesner get his revenge any way they wanted from that point on.  But to have Lesner job in 90 seconds just takes away the Beast mentality that they have worked so long for him.  I really can't wrap my head around the booking decision on this one.  But I'm interested to see what happens on Raw.  So at the very least, they are getting people talking and tuning into Raw.

To be fair, about 95% of all of Goldberg's matches went exactly like that.  He may not know how to do anything else.

I don't have high expectations from WWE at all these days, but they still manage to constantly disappoint and hit new lows.
Meanwhile Lucha Underground has managed 3 seasons of logical booking, and I can't think of a single decision they've made in that entire run that I've questioned. No screwy finishes, people don't get jobbed out, nobody is forgotten.
Sure, they don't have as much television to fill as WWE, but it shouldn't be this hard to achieve some level of common sense.

A decent show tonight with Bray Wyatt finally winning a championship, a surprise title change with Alexa Bliss going over Becky Lynch, and James Ellsworth turning on Dean Ambrose allowing AJ Styles to retain the world title.

I would say it was decent too.  Main event was good with an interesting ending.

Maybe AJ Styles vs Undertaker at the Rumble?

One can dream. Then Cena at WM. That would be perfect to me.

TLC was ok overall, pretty consistent. The title match obviously stole the show, but they've already way overused Ellsworth, and that didn't make much sense at all. It was funny how they tried to keep the camera off Styles' ass after he tore his pants. :lol
That was the first time I've seen Alexa Bliss in a proper match, and she was alright. Good finish to the match.
I hope the Wyatts use Freebird rules so Harper is involved, because he's the only one I care about and think is good.

I have to say, I really enjoyed Raw this week. Both triple threat tag matches (especially the main event) were great, and Jack Gallagher coming out and announcing his intentions to interfere in a match ahead of time was gold. Stephanie getting hosed down in champagne certainly doesn't hurt either :hat Only thing that really fell flat for me was the Lana/Rusev/Cass segment.

As far as the women's championship goes, apparently WWE forgot that it's called a title reign. Why won't they let Sasha have a long run with the title? The crowd loves her and she's amazing.

It's probably a work. :lol

Spent all day watching Wrestle Kingdom, all 5 hours of it in one sitting. As usual, a really solid show, and a much easier watch than WM. Not my favourite WK overall, but damn that closing title match is probably the best individual match I've seen in NJPW. 46 minutes long, and it didn't drag one bit. It just kept getting better.

Kenny Omega is an unreal performer.  He is actually from my hometown and still shows up every few months for a bar wrestling show.  Even for these small shows, where there are 40 people, he still puts in a great performance and is head and shoulders above every one else.

I've watched him from when he first began and he just gets better and better.  Its a shame that he doesn't appear to be interested in going to WWE because he would be a perfect fit for NXT.

Damn, that sounds awesome. :lol I was thrilled enough to get to see Nakamura from 50-75ft away in a crowd of maybe 5000.

Even though I'm familiar with Kenny Omega, the only match I've properly seen him in was last year's WK, which was a tag match or something. He was still quite good in that, but it didn't allow him to showcase his full talent. I was very impressed by him this year. I was going for him anyway just based on that entrance. :lol

So has he said he's not interested in going to WWE? Because he definitely seems like a guy WWE would be interested in.

I've heard through the grapevine that WWE is interested in Kenny for sure.  He was actually signed with WWE I think about 7 or 8 years ago.  It made the papers here and Kenny went to OVW, which was WWE'S previous training league.  I'm not sure what issues arose, but he was released.

It worked out for him and he has obviously been a huge success in Japan.  I've been told by other local wrestlers here that Kenny just gets mobbed whereever he goes in Japan.  He just enjoys the Japanese culture and NJPW is a perfect fit for him.  I recommend checking out more of his matches as he is someone who never has a bad match.

But it definitely sounds like WWE wants him right now, but he is the one who is resistant in going there.
