“The three biggest box office attractions in UFC history are Brock Lesnar, Ronda Rousey and Conor McGregor. Ronda Rousey is now full time with WWE. Conor McGregor is a cottage industry all of his own, which frees up Brock Lesnar to come in and take over as
the preeminent box office attraction in UFC. The UFC needs someone they can bank on and not spend a year negotiating with just getting them into the cage, which is the case with Conor McGregor. If Ronda Rousey ever goes back, it won’t be within the next year,
so I think it’s a perfect time for Brock Lesnar because UFC is in desperate need of a top box office attraction and his box office receipts speak for themselves.”
Do u agree or is all to work the marks?
A team like the Rock n’ Roll Express? Shawn Michael when being pushed as a sex symbol? Trish Stratus? Someone else?
Starrcade for Bischoff-Zbyszko? Did he have any discussions about creative with WCW before signing, or just took the money?
Also do you think they do the whole Sting-Hogan Fast Count angle if the Screwjob at Survivor Series doesn't happen?
Do you think there is any chance that Taker is passing on his gimmick to someone else at WrestleMania and they are facing Cena instead? Imo a perfect candidate would be Aleister Black. I think an exact copy of Taker would seem like a rip-off but someone who
could make the gimmick their own wouldn't be a bad idea.
I'd rank this show in the top half of Manias to be honest
I don't know if he won it or not, but Edge should have been Wrestler of the Year in 2006. He was on an absolute roll
Maybe I’m grasping at straws here, but what are the chances that Undertaker appears on Smackdown to answer Cena’s challenge? After all, Cena is a free agent so he can very well appear and Smackdown WAS the Undertaker’s show for years.
You'd think they'd advertise that sort of thing in advance, but really nothing about this bizarre buildup surprises me at this point.
With Wrestlemania being a stacked card, why not just keep Undertaker off of tv totally before Mania. Then at Mania have Cena come out to cut a promo about the Undertaker never answering his challenge.
Since Kid Rock will be in the house, have him interrupt with a live version of American Badass to bring out that version of Taker. Since he left the hat and jacket in the ring last year it would make sense for him to go back to the American Badass character.
It's certainly one way to go with the payoff. Plus giving him a motorcycle to ride to the ring would eliminate the six hour wait for him to make his entrances in these stadium shows.
Almost wrapped up with another successful year of March Bashness. Figured I’d actually take advantage of the wrestling format and make the build to the last four teams actually be the final match. NCAA can’t do that.
This round pays off some storylines in true Watts and Rhodes fashion. Hope you and the BOD enjoy and thanks again for sharing!
