Has anyone watched the WWE Network?

I'm not ashamed to admit it, I purchased the WWE Network. That's right I committed to a six month contract at $9.99. For that price I can watch all the past WWE/WWF, WCW and ECW pay-per views. I also can watch old WCCW shows. If I am not mistaken about 22 of them. They also have special features about who has the best ring entrances, best moves, the worst gimmick and so on. They also have a half hour show live before and after Monday Night Raw. Also all the WWE pay-per views for the next 6 months are included. Just for that alone is the reason I got it.

It is by no means is it perfect. They do have some documentaries. But I would like a weekly wrestling news show.

The reason I am mentioning this the WWE is giving a one week trial run. If you can check it out (of course it would have been better if they did it during a PPV week).

WrestleMania XXX Results - Undertaker 21-1...
Posted by ScottJax77 on Monday, April 07, 2014 at 6:45:38 AM

WrestleMania 30 has come and gone, with a full plate of matches.

I watched this event at Buffalo Wild Wings and it was packed. I got there at 5:30pm and it was a good thing because by the time WM30 started there were no seats available. We had a party of 8 this year. Everyone in the restaurant were into the matches as we yelled and screamed all night, especially at the end (don’t want to spoil it).

Here are the results of the matches and how well I did in predicting the order of the matches and who won. The card below is the order in which the matches were at WrestleMania 30.

Attendance at Mercedes-Benz Superdome was 75,167, a new attendance record.

WrestleMania 30 Pre-Show

WWE Fatal Four-Way Tag Team Championship Match


 

- The Usos (Jimmy and Jey Uso) © vs. Curtis Axel & Ryback, Los Matadores (Diego and Fernando) and The Real Americans (Cesaro and Jack Swagger)

Usos regain control on a double team on Cesaro. They make another tag and climb to the top rope on both sides. Double splash on Cesaro and they cover for the three count.

I predicted: The USO’s 1-0

 

Match 1:

Singles Match with the winner in the WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match


- Triple H vs. Daniel Bryan

Hunter hits a couple of knees to the side of Bryan’s head, driving him to the mat. Hunter goes for the pedigree again, but Bryan reverses out with a kick to the side of the head. Hunter avoids another kick, and goes for a suplex. Bryan lands on his feet, and hits the flying knee, dropping Hunter to the mat. Bryan goes for the pin and gets the three count.

 

My order of the match: I had this as match 1. 1-0

I Predicted: The Daniel Bryan and Triple H 2-0

 

Match 2:

6-man Tag Team Match


- Kane & The New Age Outlaws (Road Dogg and Billy Gunn) vs. The Shield (Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns)

The Shield grab both Outlaws, and put them up for a three-man double powerbomb for Reigns, it’s a pretty insane visual. Rollins pins Gunn..

My order of the match: I had this as match 2. 2-0

I Predicted: Shield 3-0

 

Match 3:

30-Man Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal

Winner gets an Andre The Giant trophy.

- Big E, Fandango, Alberto Del Rio, Dolph Ziggler, Damien Sandow, Titus O’Neil, Christian, Sheamus, Big Show, Mark Henry, The Miz, Kofi Kingston, Cody Rhodes, Goldust, Heath Slater, Jinder Mahal, Drew McIntyre, Brodus Clay, Darren Young, Justin Gabriel, Rey Mysterio, R-Truth, Santino Marella, The Great Khali, Zack Ryder, Sin Cara, Yoshi Tatsu, Xavier Woods and Brad Maddox.

Show picks Cesaro up and shoulders him. Cesaro fights out of it, and he picks Show up, and body slams him over the top rope to win the match.

 

My order of the match: I had this as match 3. 3-0

I Predicted: Big Show 3-1

 

Match 4:

Singles Match

- John Cena vs. Bray Wyatt

Wyatt goes for Sister Abigail, but Cena counters into the AA. Cena pins Wyatt for win

My order of the match: I had this as match 4. 4-0

I Predicted: Wyatt Fandango 3-2

 

Match 5:

The Streak


- The Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar

Undertaker sits straight up. He drags his thumb across his throat, then picks Lesnar up. Taker shoulders Lesnar, but Lesnar counters, getting Taker over his shoulders again. Lesnar hits a third F5, and gets the three count.

My order of the match: I had this as match 5. 5-0

I Predicted: The Undertaker 3-3

Notes: You should have seen the reaction at the Mercedez-Benz Superdome and at Buffalo Wild Wings. There was shock and disbelief in the outcome.

 

Match 6:

Vickie Guerrero Divas Championship Invitational for the WWE Divas Championship

- AJ Lee © vs. Naomi, Cameron, Brie Bella, Nikki Bella, Natalya, Eva Marie, Emma, Aksana, Alicia Fox, Summer Rae, Rosa Mendes, Layla and Tamina Snuka.

Aksana stops Naomi on the top rope, and hits a superplex while being powerbombed by Natalya. Tamina drags both women from the ring. Natalya drops Tamina with a clothesline. AJ locks in the octopus hold on Naomi,and Naomi is forced to tap out.

My order of the match: I had this as match 6. 6-0

I Predicted: AJ Lee 4-3

 

Match 7:

WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match

- Randy Orton © vs. Batista vs. Daniel Bryan

Batista connects with the Batista bomb on Orton, and Bryan hits the flying knee on Batista. Bryan traps Batista in the yes lock, and Batista taps! Daniel Bryan is your new champion!

My order of the match: I had this as match 7. 7-0

I Predicted: Daniel Bryan 5-3

I had a perfect record in the order of the matches. Never had more than 2 correct.

I hoped Gabbers liked my predictions and results.

WrestleMania XXX Predictions......Oh, Oh
Posted by ScottJax77 on Saturday, April 05, 2014 at 9:30:18 AM

WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2014 induction ceremony will be held Saturday April 5, 2014 at Smoothie King Center, New Orleans, Louisiana.

It will be shown on the WWE Network on April 5, 2014 in its entirety, and after Monday Night Raw on April 7th. with only selected inductees.

Ultimate Warrior

Jake “The Snake” Roberts

Lita

Paul Bearer

Carlos Colon

Mr. T.

Scott Hall

Then, On Sunday, April 6th at 7:00pm its the greatest wrestling event of the year, WrestleMania 30, live from Mercedes-Benz Superdome, New Orleans, Louisiana. Hulk Hogan will be the WrestleMania host. There is a two-hour pre-show starting at 5:00pm.

Rumor has it the cast of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, Real Housewives of New Jersey and Real Housewives of New York will be attending this event.

 

Once again my party will be at Buffalo Wild Wings for the PPV. What an atmosphere. It’s packed with wrestling fans and it makes it feel like we are at WrestleMania.

I started a tradition, four years ago, where I would pick who would win the match and in what order the matches would be. In 2010, I was 7-2 in who would win, but a dismal 0-9 in the order of the matches. In 2011, I was 5-3 in who would win, but again a dismal 1-7 in the order of the matches. In 2012, I was at my worst with a 4-4 record on who would win, but as it has been for the past three years, I sucked in the order of the matches, going 1-7 for the second year in a row. Then in 2013, I really stunk it up as I went 4-5 with my predictions on who would win, and a dismal 2-6 (did not pick the pre-WM match). This goes to show you that the WWE must know better than I on where a match should be placed. My four year record for who wins is a respectable 20-14 in predicting who will win the matches and an awful 5-29 in the order of the matches (did not pick the order of the WM29 pre-match).

Anyway, that will not deter me, as I am again going to pick who will win and in what order the matches will be. Even though I tell you how a match will end, if the person, or team that I pick wins even though they don’t win it the way I say, it still counts as a win for me. Sorry my predictions, my rules. LOL. Its on with the predictions:

The WWE had announced that the following will be shown during the WWE WrestleMania pre-show which will start one-hour before WrestleMania and will be on the WWE Network:

 

WrestleMania 30 Pre-Show

WWE Fatal Four-Way Tag Team Championship Match

- The Usos (Jimmy and Jey Uso) © vs. Curtis Axel & Ryback, Los Matadores (Diego and Fernando) and The Real Americans (Cesaro and Jack Swagger)

The WWE wants to give the Los Matadores a chance to win the title, but it will not happen here. Anyway who wants the Los Matadores as champs? There was talk about breaking up The Real Americans, and Axel and Rybeck have had many chances to win. So I will go with the Uso’s retaining the title.

 

These are the matches that will appear during WrestleMania.

Match 1

Singles Match with the winner in the WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match

- Triple H vs. Daniel Bryan

The authority has gone out of their way to snatch victory, upon victory from Daniel Bryant. He wins the championship and on the same PPV they take it away, or he wins the title and the authority says he cheated to win and remove the title from him. This has been building for almost a year. I expect Bryan to win otherwise the fans will revolt! Oh no! How about a swerve? Let’s have a double pin and both make it to the title match. No that’s what I’m talking about.

 

Match 2

6-man Tag Team Match

- Kane & The New Age Outlaws (Road Dogg and Billy Gunn) vs. The Shield (Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns)

This could be a great match. The “old guard” of Kane and The New Age Outlaws versus the “New Guard” of The Shield. Dogg and Gunn are crafty partners and they know what it takes to win, while Kane will supply the power. Rollins is underrated and somehow I am not high up on Ambrose but there are many who like him. The outcome will be provided by the next great WWE star, Roman Reigns, as he will spear Kane to get the win.

 

Match 3

30-Man Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal

Winner gets an Andre The Giant trophy.


- Big E, Fandango, Alberto Del Rio, Dolph Ziggler, Damien Sandow, Titus O’Neil, Christian, Sheamus, Big Show, Mark Henry, The Miz, Kofi Kingston, Cody Rhodes, Goldust, Heath Slater, Jinder Mahal, Drew McIntyre, Brodus Clay, Darren Young, Justin Gabriel, Rey Mysterio, R-Truth, Santino Marella, The Great Khali, Zack Ryder, Sin Cara, Brad Maddox, 2 mystery wrestlers.

It was always common for the big man to win the Battle Royal, so logic says The Big Show will win. We know it won‘t be The Great Khali and I don‘t think it will be Brodus Clay. I would like Big E to win the Royal and start his path towards greatness. But one thing always stands out to me and that has been that the Big Show has always been compared to Andre the Giant. So for that reason I will pick the Big Show.

 

Match 4

Singles Match


 

- John Cena vs. Bray Wyatt

John Cena not in the main-event. Yes! Yes! Yes! He goes up against an up-and-coming Bray Wyatt the man in charge of the Wyatt family. This will not be easy for Cena as each of the Wyatt’s have laid the “Smackdown” on Mr. U-Can’t see me. Well they must have seen him to have beat him up, and with that, Bray will see Cena for the pin and the win. That’s right Wyatt wins…..Do I hear any Yes! Yes! Yes!

 

Match 5

:

The Streak


 

- The Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar

Personally, I think Brock Lesnar can wipe the ring with the undertaker. The Taker looks old and frail. Lesnar is stronger by far, and he will have to hold the match together, which I don’t think he can do. In past streak matches against the Undertaker, Shawn Michaels, Triple H and CM Punk did just that. This match would have been better suited to be The Undertaker versus Daniel Bryant, with Daniel ending the streak and starting his own legacy in the WWE. But noooo, we get Lesnar versus the Undertaker. This could possibly be the worst match of the night. I have to make a prediction, so I will go with the Undertaker who will be 22-0 at WrestleMania.

 

Match 6

Vickie Guerrero Divas Championship Invitational for the WWE Divas Championship

- AJ Lee © vs. Naomi, Cameron, Brie Bella, Nikki Bella, Natalya, Eva Marie, Emma, Aksana, Alicia Fox, Summer Rae, Rosa Mendes, Layla and Tamina Snuka.

Now this match was created to give the crowd a chance to relax before the Title match for the World Heavyweight Championship. This could be an entertaining match. You have Natalya, Layla, AJ Lee and Tamina Snuka who are talented wrestlers. The Bella Twins are much improved in the ring. Naomi and Cameron have shown they can wrestle and in some matches so can Alicia Fox and Aksana. The rest are just there for the ride. In the end I think AJ Lee will retain the title.

 

Match 7

WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match

- Randy Orton © vs. Batista vs. Winner of Triple H vs. Daniel Bryan and Triple H

The odds are stacked for possibly the best Wrestler in the WWE today, Daniel Bryan. Orton, Batista and Triple H are beasts in the ring. Triple H is the best of the three. I don’t think that they brought Batista in to lose in this match, but he will. Orton has lost to Bryan on many occasions and yet he could possibly retain his title. Ahhh, Triple H can now smell the opportunity to become the Champ once again. Wouldn’t it be nice of the man who runs the WWE is also the Heavyweight Champ? No! No! No! It won’t happen. What will happen is sometime during the match Triple H will get Daniel Bryan into the pedigree, and Orton will block it. Later in the match Randy Orton will get Daniel ready for the RKO when it will be Triple H’s turn to give Orton the Pedigree and roll Daniel Bryan on top of Orton to give Bryan the pin and the win. Yes! Yes! Yes!

 

This might not be the strongest WrestleMania in history. I think its being done on purpose to given Daniel Bryan his WrestleMania Moment.

 

There you have my predictions.

Who do you think is going to win this years matches??

I'm Just Saying.....
Posted by ScottJax77 on Thursday, March 20, 2014 at 4:54:56 AM

I’m Just Saying…..

 

I would like MLB to change the format of Spring Training. Let them start camp like they always do, even start playing spring games as normal. But, on the third week of spring training games, teams in the grapefruit league should visit teams in the cactus league for a week, then return back to Florida and resume games amongst each other. The following year the cactus league could then go to the grapefruit league for a week, and then alternate years. This would give fans from both states who actually live there the opportunity to see teams they wouldn’t normally see in person.


Watch out college coaches…There is a new kid on the block, his name is Philip Stephen Martelli, and he might be looking for your job someday.

This is just priceless. I’m just glad CBS showed the human side of college basketball, and what makes it so special.


I was reading a magazine that had articles on conspiracies in sports, and one article which got my attention was the MLB steroid conspiracy. Now if you read my blogs in the past, I personally don’t care what a player does with his body. The reason behind it, is because I always believed it was baseball players, managers, sports agents, general managers, owners and even the commissioner who allowed steroid use after the strike of 1994. Or so I thought. In those days steroids were legal in MLB but illegal elsewhere. Steroids were banned by MLB in 2004. So if baseball allowed it back then shouldn’t McGwire and Sosa be allowed into the HOF? They did play by the rules of MLB….


Gee all of a sudden Carmelo Anthony is willing to change his game if Phil Jackson believes he has to do so to win a championship. Why should he change now. He couldn’t play defensive for Syracuse under Boehiem, and he sure hasn’t played any for Denver or New York. I kind of think its to late to teach an old dog new tricks.


I know its not easy when your stadium holds 110,000 - 115,000 per game, but you have to give credit to Michigan Athletic Director Dave Brandon for not scumming to bring alcohol to the Big House. Can you image all the $$$‘s that would have been generated if he allowed it. But the downside was the nightmare that could ensue if you had 60,000 drunken fans around a lot of young people, let alone the possibilities of underage children getting alcohol.


Sports labor attorney Jeffrey Kessler, on behalf of a group of college football and basketball players, filed an antitrust claim against the NCAA. Jeffrey is arguing that the association has unlawfully capped player compensation at the value of an athletic scholarship. There is no monetary fines for the lawsuit, just change the compensation players get. "The main objective is to strike down permanently the restrictions that prevent athletes in Division I basketball and the top tier of college football from being fairly compensated for the billions of dollars in revenues that they help generate," Kessler said.

Now we have debated this at the Gab, and while most of you agree, players should be compensated. I ask you how much more compensation should they receive? Scholarships aren’t cheap. I will say players should receive food vouchers while they are practicing and from the beginning of when the football or basketball season starts to when it ends.

Do we also increase scholarships for baseball. Most college baseball players only get half a scholarship because there are only 15 scholarships to be given out. Is that fair? NO. What about track and field, softball, tennis, lacrosse?? Golf, cross country, swimming and diving?? All of them are just as worthy as the football and basketball players.

If athletes are going to get compensated then it should be for all sports athletes, or none should be.

 

Til Next Time

WWE Network
Posted by ScottJax77 on Tuesday, April 15, 2014 at 7:11:15 AM

Has anyone watched the WWE Network?

I'm not ashamed to admit it, I purchased the WWE Network. That's right I committed to a six month contract at $9.99. For that price I can watch all the past WWE/WWF, WCW and ECW pay-per views. I also can watch old WCCW shows. If I am not mistaken about 22 of them. They also have special features about who has the best ring entrances, best moves, the worst gimmick and so on. They also have a half hour show live before and after Monday Night Raw. Also all the WWE pay-per views for the next 6 months are included. Just for that alone is the reason I got it.

It is by no means is it perfect. They do have some documentaries. But I would like a weekly wrestling news show.

The reason I am mentioning this the WWE is giving a one week trial run. If you can check it out (of course it would have been better if they did it during a PPV week).

WrestleMania XXX Results - Undertaker 21-1...
Posted by ScottJax77 on Monday, April 07, 2014 at 6:45:38 AM

WrestleMania 30 has come and gone, with a full plate of matches.

I watched this event at Buffalo Wild Wings and it was packed. I got there at 5:30pm and it was a good thing because by the time WM30 started there were no seats available. We had a party of 8 this year. Everyone in the restaurant were into the matches as we yelled and screamed all night, especially at the end (don’t want to spoil it).

Here are the results of the matches and how well I did in predicting the order of the matches and who won. The card below is the order in which the matches were at WrestleMania 30.

Attendance at Mercedes-Benz Superdome was 75,167, a new attendance record.

WrestleMania 30 Pre-Show

WWE Fatal Four-Way Tag Team Championship Match

- Kane & The New Age Outlaws (Road Dogg and Billy Gunn) vs. The Shield (Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns)

My order of the match: I had this as match 5. 5-0

WrestleMania XXX Predictions......Oh, Oh
Posted by ScottJax77 on Saturday, April 05, 2014 at 9:30:18 AM

WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2014 induction ceremony will be held Saturday April 5, 2014 at Smoothie King Center, New Orleans, Louisiana.

It will be shown on the WWE Network on April 5, 2014 in its entirety, and after Monday Night Raw on April 7th. with only selected inductees.

Then, On Sunday, April 6th at 7:00pm its the greatest wrestling event of the year, WrestleMania 30, live from Mercedes-Benz Superdome, New Orleans, Louisiana. Hulk Hogan will be the WrestleMania host. There is a two-hour pre-show starting at 5:00pm.

Rumor has it the cast of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, Real Housewives of New Jersey and Real Housewives of New York will be attending this event.

 

Once again my party will be at Buffalo Wild Wings for the PPV. What an atmosphere. It’s packed with wrestling fans and it makes it feel like we are at WrestleMania.

I started a tradition, four years ago, where I would pick who would win the match and in what order the matches would be. In 2010, I was 7-2 in who would win, but a dismal 0-9 in the order of the matches. In 2011, I was 5-3 in who would win, but again a dismal 1-7 in the order of the matches. In 2012, I was at my worst with a 4-4 record on who would win, but as it has been for the past three years, I sucked in the order of the matches, going 1-7 for the second year in a row. Then in 2013, I really stunk it up as I went 4-5 with my predictions on who would win, and a dismal 2-6 (did not pick the pre-WM match). This goes to show you that the WWE must know better than I on where a match should be placed. My four year record for who wins is a respectable 20-14 in predicting who will win the matches and an awful 5-29 in the order of the matches (did not pick the order of the WM29 pre-match).

Anyway, that will not deter me, as I am again going to pick who will win and in what order the matches will be. Even though I tell you how a match will end, if the person, or team that I pick wins even though they don’t win it the way I say, it still counts as a win for me. Sorry my predictions, my rules. LOL. Its on with the predictions:

The WWE had announced that the following will be shown during the WWE WrestleMania pre-show which will start one-hour before WrestleMania and will be on the WWE Network:

 

WrestleMania 30 Pre-Show

WWE Fatal Four-Way Tag Team Championship Match

- The Usos (Jimmy and Jey Uso) © vs. Curtis Axel & Ryback, Los Matadores (Diego and Fernando) and The Real Americans (Cesaro and Jack Swagger)

The WWE wants to give the Los Matadores a chance to win the title, but it will not happen here. Anyway who wants the Los Matadores as champs? There was talk about breaking up The Real Americans, and Axel and Rybeck have had many chances to win. So I will go with the Uso’s retaining the title.

 

These are the matches that will appear during WrestleMania.

Match 1

Singles Match with the winner in the WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match

- Triple H vs. Daniel Bryan

The authority has gone out of their way to snatch victory, upon victory from Daniel Bryant. He wins the championship and on the same PPV they take it away, or he wins the title and the authority says he cheated to win and remove the title from him. This has been building for almost a year. I expect Bryan to win otherwise the fans will revolt! Oh no! How about a swerve? Let’s have a double pin and both make it to the title match. No that’s what I’m talking about.

 

Match 2

6-man Tag Team Match

- Kane & The New Age Outlaws (Road Dogg and Billy Gunn) vs. The Shield (Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns)

This could be a great match. The “old guard” of Kane and The New Age Outlaws versus the “New Guard” of The Shield. Dogg and Gunn are crafty partners and they know what it takes to win, while Kane will supply the power. Rollins is underrated and somehow I am not high up on Ambrose but there are many who like him. The outcome will be provided by the next great WWE star, Roman Reigns, as he will spear Kane to get the win.

 

Match 3

30-Man Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal

Winner gets an Andre The Giant trophy.


- Big E, Fandango, Alberto Del Rio, Dolph Ziggler, Damien Sandow, Titus O’Neil, Christian, Sheamus, Big Show, Mark Henry, The Miz, Kofi Kingston, Cody Rhodes, Goldust, Heath Slater, Jinder Mahal, Drew McIntyre, Brodus Clay, Darren Young, Justin Gabriel, Rey Mysterio, R-Truth, Santino Marella, The Great Khali, Zack Ryder, Sin Cara, Brad Maddox, 2 mystery wrestlers.

It was always common for the big man to win the Battle Royal, so logic says The Big Show will win. We know it won‘t be The Great Khali and I don‘t think it will be Brodus Clay. I would like Big E to win the Royal and start his path towards greatness. But one thing always stands out to me and that has been that the Big Show has always been compared to Andre the Giant. So for that reason I will pick the Big Show.

 

Match 4

Singles Match


 

- John Cena vs. Bray Wyatt

John Cena not in the main-event. Yes! Yes! Yes! He goes up against an up-and-coming Bray Wyatt the man in charge of the Wyatt family. This will not be easy for Cena as each of the Wyatt’s have laid the “Smackdown” on Mr. U-Can’t see me. Well they must have seen him to have beat him up, and with that, Bray will see Cena for the pin and the win. That’s right Wyatt wins…..Do I hear any Yes! Yes! Yes!

 

Match 5

:

The Streak


 

- The Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar

Personally, I think Brock Lesnar can wipe the ring with the undertaker. The Taker looks old and frail. Lesnar is stronger by far, and he will have to hold the match together, which I don’t think he can do. In past streak matches against the Undertaker, Shawn Michaels, Triple H and CM Punk did just that. This match would have been better suited to be The Undertaker versus Daniel Bryant, with Daniel ending the streak and starting his own legacy in the WWE. But noooo, we get Lesnar versus the Undertaker. This could possibly be the worst match of the night. I have to make a prediction, so I will go with the Undertaker who will be 22-0 at WrestleMania.

 

Match 6

Vickie Guerrero Divas Championship Invitational for the WWE Divas Championship

- AJ Lee © vs. Naomi, Cameron, Brie Bella, Nikki Bella, Natalya, Eva Marie, Emma, Aksana, Alicia Fox, Summer Rae, Rosa Mendes, Layla and Tamina Snuka.

Now this match was created to give the crowd a chance to relax before the Title match for the World Heavyweight Championship. This could be an entertaining match. You have Natalya, Layla, AJ Lee and Tamina Snuka who are talented wrestlers. The Bella Twins are much improved in the ring. Naomi and Cameron have shown they can wrestle and in some matches so can Alicia Fox and Aksana. The rest are just there for the ride. In the end I think AJ Lee will retain the title.

 

Match 7

WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match

- Randy Orton © vs. Batista vs. Winner of Triple H vs. Daniel Bryan and Triple H

The odds are stacked for possibly the best Wrestler in the WWE today, Daniel Bryan. Orton, Batista and Triple H are beasts in the ring. Triple H is the best of the three. I don’t think that they brought Batista in to lose in this match, but he will. Orton has lost to Bryan on many occasions and yet he could possibly retain his title. Ahhh, Triple H can now smell the opportunity to become the Champ once again. Wouldn’t it be nice of the man who runs the WWE is also the Heavyweight Champ? No! No! No! It won’t happen. What will happen is sometime during the match Triple H will get Daniel Bryan into the pedigree, and Orton will block it. Later in the match Randy Orton will get Daniel ready for the RKO when it will be Triple H’s turn to give Orton the Pedigree and roll Daniel Bryan on top of Orton to give Bryan the pin and the win. Yes! Yes! Yes!

 

This might not be the strongest WrestleMania in history. I think its being done on purpose to given Daniel Bryan his WrestleMania Moment.

 

There you have my predictions.

Who do you think is going to win this years matches??
