    Professional Wrestling

    Not following WWE as much as I should, since...well...I'M GOING TO BE IN MIAMI APRIL FOOL'S DAY Brother got tix for my birthday. Super stoked about it all, especially just being in Florida after what might be another real suck-ass Indiana winter.

    I watched older videos from 95 and 96 via youtube and watched some old Goldust vignettes and matches. He was a creepy, disturbing motherfucker. I always thought he was a retarded, lame joke. Guess they chose to do that to his character later on down the line.

    Evidence

    I liked Goldust. He was funny and definitely a very different character. In fact, they're going to build up a feud with him and his younger brother Cody Rhodes for one last big run for Goldust.

    I'd definitely enjoy that. I'd watch that and enjoy it, top notch. As said, I never liked Goldust as a serious character. After those retro clips I watched last night from his initial debut and ensuing years (till about late 1996) he was quite a deliciously odd, bizarre and overall charismatic gimmick afterall. The vignette videos were strange and downright creepy feeling to me. I enjoy that. I've always enjoyed the strange and personas as such. I wish Wrestling was still like that.

    I don't watch much RAW or SmackDown! these days for good reason but the reemergence of a masked Kane makes me excited and relive my childhood. He's always been my favorite wrestler. If the feud with Goldust and Cody Rhodes does happen that'll give me further reason to watch.

    WWE has been surprisingly good this year. I mean, sure they still make very questionable decisions when it comes to their booking, but overall things have been going really well.

    I'm mixed about WWE's content though I'm happy that guys like CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, and Zack Ryder are finally given the chance to shine as champs. Plus, I like guys like Cody Rhodes and Dolph Ziggler who I think are great heels. They really need to stop trying to make Cena turn heel though I still don't like the guy. And they really need to shut Michael Cole up. BTW, does anyone thing that 1/2/12 is about Y2J?

    Maybe Lesnar is coming back, hence the retirement.

    Loved this year for the WWE though, first time I've been invested in them fully since 2002. They really struck gold on CM Punk though. The guy is a fantastic wrestler, he can do interviews, and on the mic, nobody is better. He's going to be the face of the franchise for many years to come.

    So Jericho was spotted in either Memphis (where Raw is tonight) or Nashville, one of the two. He's been working people on Twitter left, right, and center saying he's going to be in Hawaii.

    Poor WWE, they just can't keep anything under wraps anymore. It's like when both Nash and Booker were spotted before the Rumble this year in the airport where the Rumble was...

    I was hoping it was going to be Undertaker, but I can deal with Jericho.

    Next week, Jericho turns on the fans. I was expecting him to frown when they had the close up of his face when he was at the top of the ramp, and kind of wave off the fans in a dismissive manner.

    I gotta say though... the videos were excellent, but this was far from his best return. I think it did what it was supposed to do, which was to showcase how fucking arrogant he is. Punk is the #1 face, that's not changing (John Cena totally doesn't count).

    I heard that Undertaker and Miss Taker were spotted in Memphis as well, but I didn't see photographic evidence for that like I did with Jericho.

    It started off great and then... ... ... exactly. That was terrible. I was happy to see Jericho and he didn't really do anything except get the crowd excited (which he is still great at) but didn't say anything. I wanted more.

    Raw sucked tonight. Punk is being screwed by Laryingitis and we're going to have another stupid match. The only saving grace was R-Truth being crazy as usual.

    That's the point. It's supposed to piss you off and make you want more at the same time. He's trolling you. He does that shit every day on his Twitter. Not surprising in the Twitter centric universe of WWE 2012 that Jericho would be the biggest troll in the company. That whole thing was ego masturbation at it's peak and the crowd ate it up, just like they were SUPPOSED to do.

    This gimmick, man... it's got potential. I like it. Master manipulator, Jericho is. I look forward to next week.

    I thought for sure he was going to turn on the fans last night. Epic troll Jericho could have legs. But damn, did it look like he was having a blast with it last night. And I marked out a little hearing "Come on bay-bee!" again. I just hope the videos get some sort of explanation, like who's the "she" in them. Steph coming back to TV soon?

    Also, it turns out the picture of Taker and McCool in Memphis was an old picture. A few weeks back HHH said he ended the streak at Wrestlemania, which is building to HHH/Taker III this year. Taker/Shawn these matches aren't, last year it was do a move and lay there for five minutes...lather, rinse, repeat.

    After thinking about it. I think Jericho is going back to that heel persona he previously played. It was a good trick. Still, I like him as a heel. I'm just hoping they do a great build-up for a match between him and CM Punk.

    I used to be into ROH a lot back around 05-07. I've only read news sites for their results since. I may have to check it out again now that the show is online.

    Nice to see Haas and Benjamin back together again, there's a tag team that the WWE really fucked up on.

    And are they really doing unprotected chair shots to the head there? Have they learned NOTHING? Get your hands up.

    It depends on the wrestler. Most put their hands up or do back chairshots but guys like the Briscoes refuse to do it. At the last iPPV, Nigel (who's doing color commentary now) was screaming at them to put their hands up and sounded pissed when the unprotected chairshots kept on coming.

    What the fuck was that? This was the debut of Brodus Clay they had hyped up? WTF? Is it me or is everyone having flashbacks of Flash Funk (2 Cold Scorpio) and PN News (remember him?)?

    Gotta throw a little Dusty Rhodes in there too. I guess Vinny Mac still loves him the dancing fat man, seeing as Rikishi is far too old now. But I did chuckle at his "My Bad". I also find it very sad that I knew that was Ernest "The Cat" Millers old entrance theme when it started up.

    And Johnny Ace is slowly growing on me. His "I'm not Little Jimmy, I'm Big Johnny" line was awesome.

    It's probably going to happen if they don't screw up the build up. It needs to happen. It would be the ultimate wrestling match in comparison to the more entertaining Rock vs. John Cena match.

    I thought it would be Jericho, but I dunno... And I did watch the rumble. The rumble itself was pretty entertaining up until the ending. Kofi might have surpassed Michaels with his survival techniques. A handstand... It was just me in my bed watching it, and I had to give that one an applause. It was great. A few legends too. Some fun and funny surprises. But the end was kinda whatever. I'm kinda biased though.

    I was hoping it'd be Jericho too, or at least that he'd be given time to explain his "end of the world" stuff. Ah well, there's always tomorrow.

    Y2J winning would have been too obvious, hence the Sheamus win. Maybe he'll battle Jericho at the next PPV to see who will be the number one contender. It was pretty weak though, too many gimmicky wrestlers. The announcers, Road Dogg, Hacksaw, Santino, Foley. It was meh.

    Maybe that's why I kinda liked it. It was very gimmicky. Something you don't see much these days. Plus, it was he 25th anniversary. So hacksaw being in it made a lot of sense. The announcers, I actually found that pretty funny. I enjoyed the ppv a bit more than I was originally expecting.
