    So the only 2 time HOF are Flair, Bret Hart, and Shawn Michaels?
    Booker T as well since Harlem Heat are going in this year. 
    Oh yea so 3 will be going in for the 2nd time this year. Hogan should be a 2 time HOF as well. NWO should get in next year. Hogan, Hall, and Nash. Maybe Bischoff 
    Hall and Nash would be 2-times too if the nWo went in.

    I keep forgetting who's in. I know HHH will be a 2 time eventually. Sucks they didn't include Rick Rude in the DX or solo.

    I got a ticket to the Hall of fame ceremony. Mostly went to see Torrie. I didn't get Wrestlemania Axxess tickets though.

    Rude is in solo. Think he went in two or three years ago.  I can understand him not being included with DX though. Was only in it for a little while before jumping ship.

    so, thoughts on the women's main event at mania? big deal, or meh? do think it would have happened this "soon" if WWE still was on the old PPV model?

    so, thoughts on the women's main event at mania? big deal, or meh? do think it would have happened this "soon" if WWE still was on the old PPV model?
    I think it's cool. God knows I'm sick of Brock Lesnar boring me to death in WrestleMania matches. And really, this three-way is the best feud going they have going. So I look forward to it.

    One thing though, I think WWE needs to back off all the "Women's Revolution" stuff. The mission is accomplished: the women are on equal footing as the men and all the fans accept it. I didn't bat an eye when they got their own PPV, Royal Rumble, Tag Titles, and now this WM main-event because they deserve it. So Stephanie doesn't need to trot all the women out onto ramp for an ovation when it's announced that they will have their own Royal Rumble. And the WWE twitter feed doesn't need to say that Lynch, Flair, and Rousey are making HERstory by being the main-event of WM. I think it's almost insulting to the women to keep patting them on the head like they're children. Charlotte Flair does better moonsaults than fucking Shawn Michaels. And when she does one, I don't think "that was great for a woman," I think "that was great."

    It's a big deal. Sometimes they don't get the main event right like not putting Hulk/Rock there

    That was HHH's stupid ego. Jericho said on his podcast that he begged HHH to go to Vince and tell him to put Hogan/Rock on last because Jericho is smart enough to know they couldn't follow them. HHH didn't because he thought the title match should go on last (it didn't at WM8 for reference) and they went out and wrestled to crickets. Same thing happened at WM25 when HHH/Orton went on last, even though Undertaker/HBK was the real main-event.

    I haven't watched wrestling in probably 10 years, so I wasn't sure if this was a pretty significant progression for women's wrestling because of rousey or if it had been brewing over a long period.

    Oh yeah it's been brewing. I'd say the start of it was when Sasha Banks and Baylee had a great match at NXT takeover the night before Summerslam 2015. It was really great. Like WCW cruiserweights-level great. Between Banks, Baylee, Flair, and Lynch, it's been building for a while. Rousey definitely helped the process along big time though. I doubt they'd be a WM main-event without her.

    I think it started before that. The start of NXT as a brand, as opposed to a competition, signified a watershed moment for women in WWE. There's a direct correlation with the introduction of their championship on that show and women's wrestling slowly starting to be taken more seriously by WWE. May 20th 2015 is when I really got on board, NXT Takeover Unstoppable: Becky Lynch vs. Sasha Banks. What. A. Match.

    Women have come a long way, where most of the roster can actually perform but this is virtue signaling at it’s most obvious. It’s maybe slightly better than their anti bullying campaign. No denying Lynch is hot right now and is deserving of a headline spot I just don’t trust that WWE is driven by anything more than money.

    Just confirmed on Instagram that Hulk will be inducting Beefcake. Don't know about any celebrity inductee, or who the other presenters might be. I'd wager a guess that for the Hart Foundation, either Jimmy Hart will introduce and Bret and Nattie will both accept, or Nattie will introduce and just Bret will accept.

    The aim of the game with WWE is to make money. They stand to make the most money doing what they've done this year. What's your point exactly?

    Watched NXT Takeover last night. 3 really good matches (tag match, dunne/walter, and the main event was great!)

    Wrestlemania 35 predictions. Actually going to a concert tonight so i'm gonna miss it, but here are mine:

    Becky Lynch over Ronda and Charlotte (hopefully but any women has a decent shot)
    Kofi Kingston over Daniel Bryan
    Brock Lesnar over Seth Rollins
    Samoa Joe over Rey Mysterio
    Finn Balor over Bobby Lashley for the IC belt
    Roman Reigns and Drew McIntyre fight to a no-contest or double countout
    The Revival over Hawkins and Zack Ryder (was originally gonna pick Hawkins and Ryder but after last night...)
    The Uso's win the fatal 4 way
    Boss and Hug connection retain the belts in the fatal 4 way. (can see them losing though to any of the other participants
    Buddy Murphy over Tony Nese
    The Miz over Shane McMahon
    AJ Styles over Randy Orton
    Kurt Angle over Baron Corbin easily then John Cena comes out and challenges him and Angle pins him
    Triple H over Batista
    Braun Strowman wins the battle royal
    Ember Moon wins the women's battle royal
