JC’s Top Rope Report: How The WWE Pissed Me Off Today

tumblr_ncp56o2ffc1te8c1go7_500

I’ve been a wrestling fan for 24 years. I’ve learned to accept a lot of the stupid things that go along with watching professional wrestling. There are certain things that make you just shake your head but you just go along with it. When the WWE banned the piledriver, I understood it. When they switched over to a PG rating, I didn’t like it but at the time I went along with it. I’ll never understand why the WWE doesn’t allow blood anymore, even in very small doses.

JC’s Top Rope Report: Random RAW Thoughts For 4.20.15

-Hey, at least there is some kind of mid-card feud going on between wrestlers. I like the little mini program that is going on between Dean Ambrose and Luke Harper. Their feud actually feels like there is some bad blood between both men.

The Midcard 15 Minutes Logo

I “virtually” sat down with the brains behind what surely will become a
world-wide sensation among wrestling fans of all ages, Ed Allen, and I’m
talking about WrestleCrate. If you haven’t heard Ed has done what every
wrestling fan was thinking when other blind box type companies starting popping
up. After reading this head over to WrestleCrate.com, choose a t-shirt size and
your bundle package and you’re already half way to marking out. Don’t hesitate
because launch day is April 25th & the deadline to sign up is April 19th.

JC’s Top Rope Report: Random RAW Thoughts For 4.13.15

JC Top Rope Logo 2

-Sure John Cena has been having some good matches with this Open Challenge for the United States Title. I’ve enjoyed Cena more in the last few months then I have the last few years. But when you know he is facing Rusev at Extreme Rules, it kind of makes these matches seem meaningless. Also, Cena needs to set up that springboard stunner a little quicker. The one he did against Bad News Barrett took way too long to set up.

JC’s Top Rope Report: Way Too Early Predictions For Wrestlemania 32

JC Top Rope Logo

We are just under a year away from Wrestlemania 32. I’ve actually already booked a hotel room for next year’s Mania in Dallas. Hey, it’s completely refundable and my card doesn’t get charged until I check in. And with rates still currently cheap, why the heck not? But I have a warning for you wrestling fans: I don’t have a track record of going to very good Wrestlemanias. I’ve been to 2: WM27 & WM29. So yeah, things may not be looking good for next year’s Mania with that history.

The Midcard’s 15 Minutes: In Person Wrestlemania Thoughts

The Midcard 15 Minutes Logo

 

First off my Wrestlemania experience was the last two days of my honeymoon so a big thanks to my new bride and haha again for the Rollins cash in. I knew I was in for a
hectic weekend when I couldn’t land a seat or a decent one at least to the NXT live
event. My wife and I went to the afternoon Axxess session mostly because once
again I couldn’t land a VIP ticket to any of the Superstars signings. I’ll get
more into that later. I’ve attended Summerslam Axxess in the past but what I’ve
heard, read and seen I expected a million times more excitement. The
Wrestlemania Superstore was over whelming, I had to leave before I restored into
‘kid in a candy store’ mode. Hey, that should be a t-shirt. My wife and I then
got into line about an hour before our session opened, which was accompanied by
the good ‘ol WWE network playing for us all. Overall, Wrestlemania Axxess is cool
but there are several flaws. 1. Sell out of tickets, trust me WWE fans will pay
more to experience more. 2. Instead of having fans wait 30-45 minutes for a
signature follow the NXT motto and have three Superstars per station.

JC’s Top Rope Report: Random RAW Thoughts For 4.6.15

JC Top Rope Logo

-Well, I didn’t think it was possible, but you can have a boring Authority promo to start RAW without Triple H and Stephanie McMahon. Sorry but Rollins just wasn’t connecting with me at all during the promo. And Big Show and Kane just suck the life out of everything they are involved in.
