WWE WrestleMania V: Oh, How It Drags

by

-Couch, Olevia, iced tea, copy of show. Anything missing? Oh, right, throw pillow. Back’s a little sore from carrying the burdens of WrestleMania IV. I was about five minutes away from calling Dr. Phil Astin and asking for something to help me bounce back.

-So It’s April 2, 1989, and we’ve returned to the Trump Plaza in Atlantic City, NJ. Did Vince develop some kind of gambling addiction from IV? The celebrities at this show should have been Pete Rose, Art Schichter, and Rick Tocchet.

-Monsoon and Ventura welcome us to the show, albeit informally, as we rush into America the Beautiful, as sung by at-the-time Women’s Champion Rockin’ Robin. Let’s just say that there’s a reason that she was never asked to do it again. There hasn’t been a single good rendition done by a white person thus far through five WrestleManias.

Looking over it, I see where I was the most bored and disinterested, and it showed in my writing. I don’t apologize often, but I’ll do so by writing a better rant for this show, the 1989 Royal Rumble.

There’s an underlying message in here. The 1988 show had a lot of kinks to be worked out, as did my accompanying rant. The 1989 show was a vast improvement and my rant, well….let’s cross our fingers.

by

Ultimate Warrior confronts Hulk Hogan WCWEveryone is talking about CM Punk and how his last night in the WWE will end at Money in the Bank 2011. However, a look back at the history of botched pro wrestling angles should temper the excitement of CM Punk fans.

Fans are more interested in pontificating about what will happen when CM Punk challenges for the WWE title at Money in the Bank in his final match. The intrigue of how this thing ends is more exciting than the match itself for most of us. ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,
