JC Top Rope Logo

What Should Have Been Happening Since Day 1

The Undertaker started the show. Taker said he will go farther than anyone else at Wrestlemania and that is why The Streak will stay alive. Undertaker said Brock shouldn’t be worried about breaking The Streak, but what will happen when he “takes him out to the deep water and his feet aren’t hitting the bottom.” Taker said he will drown just like his other victims. Taker said some think The Streak will be broken. But others believe in 3 things that can’t be broken: Death, Taxes and The Streak.

My Thoughts: WWE Raw 3.31.14 (Undertaker, Brock Lesnar, Daniel Bryan, Randy Orton, Triple H)

WWE Raw 11-13 Header

 

1. That was exactly how Brock Lesnar should have returned a few years ago. Dominate, physical and not have the recent history of losing every match he’s been featured in. Where there used to be mystique surrounding Brock Lesnar, all of that has been tossed out of the window by now.

2. Stephanie McMahon recording the voice-over for the Triple H promo was an incredible idea. The promo itself was stellar work! The video packages that the WWE has been putting forth lately have been better than ever and prove that a video package can a helluva lot more than a simple promo on the mic.

JC’s Top Rope Report: Final Thoughts Heading Into Wrestlemania 30

JC Top Rope Logo

We’re now less than one week away from Wrestlemania 30. And to say that we have taken many twists and turns getting here would be a bit of an understatement. From the hijacking of the Royal Rumble, to Batista’s flop of a return, to CM Punk walking out, to the YES Movement that has taken over the WWE. A lot of these things weren’t expected heading into the Super Bowl of sports entertainment.

JC’s Top Rope Report: What’s Left For The Undertaker At Wrestlemania?

JC Top Rope Logo

In two weeks, the WWE will roll out Wrestlemania 30 for every wrestling fan in the world to see. It is often the WWE’s opportunity to get casual fans to come back to the WWE product and showcase what they have going for them right now.

While the WWE often has a few big matches, one wrestler’s match that has become synonymous with Wrestlemania is The Undertaker. Some people might argue that The Undertaker’s match has become the biggest match on the card. The Streak is something that wrestling fans debate every year. It might be the one thing fans are very evenly split on as far as what to do with it go. There are some that feel The Undertaker should retire with The Streak intact. Others feel that someone should break The Streak and be made into the next big mega star in the WWE.

My Thoughts On WWE Raw 3.24.14 (Triple H, The Undertaker, Brock Lesnar, The Shield)

WWE Raw 11-13 Header

1. I absolutely LOVE the fact that four former World Heavyweight Champions are wrestling a fatal four-way match on Raw to be named the number one contender for the Intercontinental Championship! I’ve said ever since they unified the World & WWE Championships that either the IC championship or the United States Championship had to be built back up to a higher level. This is the perfect step in the right direction but out of the 4 potential matches that could have come out of that match, Christian versus Big E was the lowest on my list.

2. I will say this, the Scooby Doo movie is actually pretty damn good. Of course my 3-year-old son has watched the screener I received on repeat for a week straight but before I started tuning out the repetitiveness, the movie is written very well! There are inside jokes that relate both to the world of wrestling AND the Scooby Doo world. All of the wrestlers did their own voices (except for Sin Cara who only speaks “Lucha”) & they all put on a good performance. I actually hope they make a sequel to this direct-to-DVD movie.

RAW Is Sexual Innuendos 

RAW started with Stephanie McMahon. She said Daniel Bryan won’t be there tonight. Suurreee. Steph said she agreed with people on social media who said the beating last week went too far. But her and HHH needed to send a message to the locker room that insubordination will not be tolerated. She said Daniel Bryan will lead everyone down a bad road. She said she was born into all of this power and she is the only person who can handle making all of these decisions. She said last week HHH showed that he his still the Cerebral Assassin and is the most powerful man in the WWE. And after Wrestlemania he will once again be WWE Champion.

From The Mind Of A Wrestling Wife: Total Divas Season 2 Episode 2

From The Mind Of A Wrestling Wife Logo

Episode 2 of Total Divas. Will Brie and Bryan get the underwear blanket? Will Eva Marie ever talk to her family again? Will Nattie end up in AA? And the big question…Will Cena purpose to Nikki on the pier?! Lol as if. Well here we go again!

– So basically John Cena flew cross-country to say he hasn’t really changed his position but he wants Nikki back and she goes. Well… glad she held firm.

– I think Eva Marie gets far more slack for being awful than she does for not wrestling on the indies.
