@SethMates – “: At last year’s I was wearing a back brace in a wheel chair. So I guess this year was an improvement.” Was it?

@WWEAJLee – “: sorry your Ex-BF stole the show” You’re going to have to be more specific…

@TheCurtHawkins – For your information I was in the but Godfather offered me his ladies for my number so I made the trade.

Comment of the Day 
Worst_In_The_World made things pretty easy today:

To
me, the biggest problem isn’t that Punk shouldn’t lose the title, or
Rock shouldn’t get it— it all comes down to the fact that all signs
point to the company riding a face John Cena as the main attraction of
their company coming out of Wrestlemania, because frankly I just can’t
imagine that working. Again, this is the equivalent of riding a post
Wrestlemania 9 or so Hulk Hogan as the main attraction. There is zero
upside to face Cena at this point, there is only audience attrition. Are
they gonna run Cena through Cesaro, Sandow, Shield, Punk, Ziggler etc
over the next 12 months? I’m guessing Vince thinks that the Rock
loss/handshake finish is gonna catapult Cena into some new level of
stardom, but it just isn’t going to happen. If Cena hasn’t become a
mainstream “breakout beyond wrestling audiences” star by now, he never
will. And for wrestling audiences who have seen this act at the top for
going on 9 years now, the probability is that more will tune out rather
than somehow get reenergized by a Cena face title run.
 I’m not arguing that the only right move here is to run a smark wet
dream and make Punk or Bryan the face of the company. Hell, go with
Sheamus or Ryback and I’d be perfectly happy. But to waste The Rock’s
big loss at Mania on Cena is just an awful move for the future of WWE,
especially if they couple that with HHH and Taker winning the other top
two matches on the show.

On This Day…
Mike Awesome defeated Masato Tanaka in Fort Lauderdale. Da Baldies also got a rare victory over New Jack and his partner for the evening Balls Mahoney. (2000)

Hacksaw Jim Duggan picked up a victory over then WWF Champion Sgt. Slaughter, but only via a Disqualification. Hulk Hogan and Tugboat also took on Earthquake and Dino Bravo. No points for guessing who went over here. (1991)
