Wrestlemania Countdown 2018: The SmarK Rant for WWE Wrestlemania 21

The SmarK Rant for WWE Wrestlemania 21

– I was going to do No Way Out first, but I figured I’d get less e-mails bugging me about this one if I took care of it first, so since that’s the kind of guy I am, here you go.

– Live from Los Angeles, CA.

– Your hosts are JR, King, Cole and Tazz.

– The set is probably one of the best they’ve ever done, where it truly says marquee on the wrestling, to quote Arn Anderson.

The SmarK Rant for WWE Wrestlemania 22

– I’ve tried to start this one a couple of times, so we’ll see what happens this time around. I think this show, however, encapsulates what my fandom has turned into, as it was the first Wrestlemania where I missed the show and didn’t really panic about it. Whereas VII was a bummer because the sport was in a slump and no one was showing it closed-circuit in Edmonton (and we didn’t have pay-per-view in Canada yet!), this one was just a show that didn’t appeal to me and didn’t seem to have any matches on it that were worth taking the day off work and paying the $20 to catch it at the movie theater. I’m fickle that way.

– Live from Chicago, IL

– Your hosts are JR, King, Tazz & Cole.

It’s all about HHH at the moment, despite him not actually being on the show. The big story is a $100,000 bounty that HHH has placed on Goldberg’s head, giving us great villains such as Mark Henry and La Resistance trying to collect. I’m sure we’ll hit the thrilling part soon enough. Let’s get to it.

(Back with these after a couple of days off!)

The SmarK 24/7 Rant for WWE Wrestlemania 24

Oddly enough, I never did an actual rant on this show last year, so with it airing on WWE 24/7 it seems like a good enough time to revisit it.

– Live from Orlando, FL.

– Your hosts are JR, King, Cole, yada yada.

It’s finally time to start the Road to Wrestlemania with the first of four Smackdowns left to go. Tonight’s show is supposed to feature a Shane McMahon announcement about the pay per view, but given the way this company can’t seem to remember to deliver what they advertise, it could be something else entirely. Let’s get to it.

We’re FINALLY away from all other pay per views and that means it’s time to get on with the real Wrestlemania build. Tonight is scheduled to featured Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar going face to face but that was the case two weeks ago as well. I can’t shake the feeling that WWE is going to manage to screw this one up. Let’s get to it.

With less than two weeks to No Mercy, the question becomes how can we find more time to talk about Vince and Stephanie. That story dominated last week’s show and has done so for months now. At least we’re heading towards their pay per view blowoff and that means we might be free soon enough. Let’s get to it.
