In Memory of Owen Hart

In Blogs on May 23, 2009 at 4:34 pm

10 years ago today (on May 23rd, 1999 to be exact) Owen Hart was tragically killed doing a stunt at the WWF Over the Edge Pay-Per-View. I would just like to make this short post in tribute to a great man and one of the greatest wrestlers of all time. Owen is truly missed.

CM Punk v.s. Umaga

Winner: Umaga
The hometown curse continues as CM Punk loses in his hometown of Chicago. Decent match, though I don’t see the point in having Punk job to Umaga, certainly when he’s holding the Money in the Bank Contract.

*ECW Championship Match*

Christian(c) v.s. Jack Swagger

Winner and still champion: Christian
Really good match. Really dug the ending to this one.

Shelton Benjamin v.s. John Morrison
Excellent match. Morrison had an amazing spot in this match. If he isn’t the “next big thing”, I will be surprised.

*Intercontinental Championship Match*

Rey Mysterio Jr. (c) v.s Chris Jericho

Winner and still champion: Rey Mysterio Jr.
Match of the night, in my opinion. These guys definitely still have it.

*WWE Championship Match*

Randy Orton (c) v.s. Batista

Winner and still champion: Randy Orton
A pretty “meh” match with an incredibly lame ending. Randy Orton slaps the ref to earn the DQ. Yawn.

John Cena v.s. The Big Show

Winner: John Cena
Typical Cena match. He gets his ass kicked throughout, pulls the Superman at the end. Boring match, as expected. This was the “bathroom break” portion of the show.

*WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match*

Edge (c) v.s. Jeff Hardy

Winner and still champion: Edge
Matt Hardy interferes to give Edge the win. A decent little match here, though I was pretty let down that CM Punk didn’t cash in. The fans were wanting it, but apparently the WWE has other plans.

All in all this was a pretty lame throwaway PPV. Nothing of note happened, every match was fairly predictable. I am assuming the next WWE PPV in June (Extreme Rules) will be rematches from this show.

Final Grade: D-

In Blogs on May 16, 2009 at 5:19 pm

Anyone who has followed wrestling for 10-20 years can tell you that wrestling is nothing like it used to be. Sure, we still watch and anticipate each show, but there is no denying the downgrade in quality over the years. But what caused this? Why is it do different now? Lets take a look at a few things that, in my opinion, has gravely wounded professional wrestling over the years.

Just around the corner (well tomorrow, to be specific) is the 25th anniversary of Wrestlemania, what many consider to be the Super Bowl/World Series of professional wrestling. Because of this, WWE and THQ have released Legends of Wrestlemania, a game featuring many big stars of past and present. Does this game live up to the legendary name of Wrestlemania? Well, not really. What we have here is a mediocre game that could have been so much more.
