It will be a short run so it doesn't upset me much. What does piss me off is how they had Samoa Joe lose a few title matches to Magnus but they had Eric Young, who had already wrestled in a qualifying match earlier in the show (hey, that sounds familiar) beat Magnus for the belt in the main event. Samoa Joe should've been the one to end Magnus's awful title run and the company should be building itself around Samoa Joe as champion.

I don't mind the WWE dropping the term "pay per view" since PPV doesn't really exist anymore for the company with the arrival of the network. If you have the network, you really are watching a special event not a PPV anymore.
Christ, I didn't even notice that. Way to stay ahead of the game TNA. But, given their past history of "Reverse Battle Royals" and shit I'm glad they didn't have Eric Young defeat Magnus, then have to compete in a Gauntlet match for the right to be the champion.

There was a lot of wrestlers from back then that were great but doomsayer's assessment of Warrior and Hulk Hogan is accurate. They weren't very good wrestlers and when you take a serious look at their matches they were pretty dull.

I had a similar experience when I recently picked up this Undertaker dvd at a thrift store. I was watching Undertaker's casket match against Kamala in the early 90s and it nearly put me to sleep. It's not like it was a serious technical match that today's youngsters just can't appreciate, it was just a shitty match that fans still ate up because they loved the characters.

I think that's the nail on the end for older matches when we watch them now - we've less context for them, so when two characters who may have had a great feud meet we don't feel the intensity and aren't as led by our love for the characters and just assess ability. At least, that's how I find watching old PPV's and seeing wrestlers that never quite made it to legend status.

Neither Warrior nor Hulk were ever the best wrestlers, but man the crowd got behind them and they had great, easy to sell characters. There's always been a healthy amount of actual good technical workers in the WWE, whether or not they're being used right and getting the right ring time is another story.

I wish Ziggler was half as good as his fans think he is. He would certainly be worth watching if that was the case. Unfortunately, all he knows how to do is take really good bumps. When that's the main skill a wrestler brings to the table he's gonna spend a lot of time jobbing. He needs to work on making his whole game better if he ever wants to move up the card again. He has a weak offense and below average mic skills. Until that changes he's staying right where he is now as jobber to the stars.

PHOENIX -- Former pro wrestler The Ultimate Warrior died of cardiovascular disease, authorities said Monday.

Maricopa County spokeswoman Cari Gerchick says that's the finding from an autopsy conducted Thursday by the county Medical Examiner's Office.

The 54-year-old wrestler's given name was James Hellwig. He collapsed April 8 while walking with his wife to their car at a Scottsdale hotel and was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Scottsdale police have said there were no signs of foul play.

Damn, pretty much what everyone was kinda expecting . Poor guy, it was great he was able to achieve so much right before his passing.
