    So bittersweet seeing the Undertaker retire.

    It's time. That match was awful. He just can't physically do it anymore....he's a legend, but he prob should have retired a couple years ago after he lost to Lesnar.
    he should have gone out on the first loss, I agree completely.

    Balor

    Really enjoyed WM last night and I'm fine with Reigns winning but I hate that he gets the main event for the third year in a row and he goes on after both big title matches. Also didn't like Bray losing. Everything else was fantastic. Especially Rollins and Styles like always.

    Thought that was a really great Wrestlemania. Winners and losers don't bother me as long as the show is good, and it was. Designed to feel like the biggest event every year, but this year it really came through. The whole set and production were amazing. No real dud matchups. Some great surprises.

    I like that there weren't many marathon matches. So few guys have the move set to keep them entertaining, and you really need 2 guys like that to pull off a 20minute match.

    The close with the Undertaker was incredible. Never as big as Hogan or Austin, but that dude's the GOAT. His all around ability In the ring and on the mic, his image, his commitment to the gig, and all he's given back to the business...nobody compares to what he's done, despite having what's really a pretty ridiculous gimmick. He's been done awhile, but he still put on some great matches the last few years.



    I want a list of the chants from Raw. They were just crushing Roman. He was fighting laughter hard a few times. Gotta be hard to hold in the laughter when they really get going.

    my Wretlemania thoughts. Unfortunately i was out and missed most of it. By the time i got home i only saw HHH vs Rollins and the matches after that. And that was the best match that i saw. Orton vs Wyatt was kinda a dud. Women's smackdown match was meh. Lesnar/Goldberg was better than expected i suppose. Only probel i had the the Taker/Regns match was I think it went about 5 minutes too long. Undertaker looked pretty good up until about the 15 minute mark but then it was just too tough to watch him.

    Saw the highlights of the earlier matches and was following it online. Hardys return was awesome! Kinda surprising since they competed the night before at ROH and lost to the Young Bucks. Actually thought they would return tonight. Mojo really needed Gronk to help him win the battle royal? Lame! Really want to see the other matches now (Aries/Neville, Shane/Styles, and Owens/Jericho).

    RAW stepped up. Angle new GM, The Revival make their RAW debut, Hardys make the tv debut and retain! Vince makes a surprising announcement. I don't think the roster should be shaken up though. And of course Finn Balor Returns! :smiley:

    Interesting to see what Smackdown live does. Hearing Shinske might debut for them.

    I remember watching Undertaker when he first came in to what was the WWF at the time. He was a beast. Loved him, hated Paul Bearer.

    Thanks for the journey.

    yeah probably. one thing that kinda sucks about having this many wrestlers is you don't know what to do with them. Wrestlemania for example was about 6 hours and not everyone even wrestled and the ones that should have been headlining or in another match weren't (Sami Zayn, Braun Strowman, American Alpha, The Uso's, and a lot of the 205 guys.

    I wasn't too keen on the shakup at first but after it happened and who went where i'm glad they did it. I think Smacdown live overall got the better people like Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn and Charlotte. RAW did ok with Miz, Dean Ambrose and Bray Wyatt though. Hopefully Bray doesn't get lost in the shuffle though.

    Love Aleister Black's theme and entrance. Next big thing in NXT.

    I'm actually kinda ok with Jinder Mahal winning the 6 pack challenge. It was a surprise which no one really saw coming. Only problem i kinda had was Jinder pinning Sami Zayn (poor guy can't catch a break). Would rather him pinned someone else like Mojo or Rowan or something. I was more surprised with Primo and Epico beating American Alpha though.

    I like the surprise but I don't see him beating Orton and this means Wyatt won't be winning the title back.

    Not sure how i feel about last night's PPV.  It was i guess a little above average.  Styles/Keven Owens was the best match, but the ending was kinda lame.  Jinder winning i'm ok with.  Don't hinder the jinder

    NXT Takeover was also a little above average didn't really see Ciampa turning on Gargano so that was a nice twist.

    I thought backlash was alright.  I'm one of the few happy that jinder won.  Yes they pushed him quickly but I'd rather him than orton.  

    I think Extreme Rules will be better and MITB has the potential to be amazing.

    pretty decent ppv so far tonight except for the Bliss/Bayley match.

    I just realized which musician "The Drifter" Elias Samson reminds me of, "The Nightwatchman" Tom Morello

    Money in the Bank Predictions:

    The Hype Bros. over The Colon's 
    Jinder Mahal over Randy Orton
    The Uso's over The New Day
    Lana over Naomi (I know a long shot)
    Charlotte Flair wins the womens Money in the Bank (then cashes in and beats Lana)
    AJ Styles wins the mens money in the bank.  This is probably gonna be a contender for match of the year i think.  I don't even know who is favored.  Anyone can win this one, no really clear cut favorite.  Others that have a good shot: Dolph and Baron.  Zayn and Shinsuke would be next i think.  Owens is probably the least likely to win I believe.

    pretty solid PPV.  Yeah Money in the Bank was definitely a classic.  Kinda surprised Baron won but no complaints.

    not too bad of a RAW.  Samoa Joe beating Roman then Strowman coming out and beati him up some more.  Cass turning on Enzo was good (although most people saw that coming).  I was never a huge Enzo and Cass fan anyway.  Good to see WWE using Bo and Curtis Axel finally.  Although i'm hoping Bo and Bray team up soon.
