Random wrestling thoughts

Been paying more attention to the WWE YouTube channel this week.  Figured they be putting out some good stuff this week.  I was correct.

If you have the time and means to watch NT Takeover from last night, do it. Two MOTYC and 3 other really good matches to go with it. Could be the best 3 hours of wrestling you see this year.

It always amazes me how the same company that put on an outstanding Takeover that left me satisfied, energized and anticipating the next chapter also put on a Wrestlemania that left me confused, tired and wondering why I bothered.

Think of it positively. Takeover was booked by HHH using the future talent of the WWE. As soon as Vince retires, WWE wrestling will get really really good.

FTFY, Punk style.

I hate the booking of the tag team championship match at WrestleMania. One guy should not be beating the tag team champs by himself. It doesn't just bury the tag champs. It buries the entire tag team division. I hated it when The Rock beat the Dudley Boyz by himself nearly two decades ago and I hate it now.

I think you're both doing Nicholas a supreme disservice - his element of surprise clearly threw the Bar off of their game.

The "we want Nicholas" chant during Lesnar/Reigns clearly shows the kid is over.

He has a point.

Quoting the text, in case he gets suspended again:

While I'm at it, there are few gimmick matches I hate more than "escape the cage" rules in a cage match."I hate you so bad, I'mma run away from you so everyone knows I'm better."

Especially given that Sheamus is a former World champ and that Cesaro oughta be. 

Cesaro should be main eventing WrestleMania and beating Brock Lesnar clean.

I cannot for the life of me figure out what WWE has against him.

When did Braun Strowman stop hating Roman Reigns?

WWE is better than it used to be with everybody being friends as soon as they change alignment. That bugged me in the 80's and 90's. But it still makes no sense that two characters who hated and basically tried to kill each other can even tolerate each other's presence, much less be friends or even allies. If who someone tried to kill me was being beaten up, I am not running out to save them.

I understand WWE likes scripted promos, but the opening segment of Raw last week was as unnatural and wooden as I have seen in a long time. Just awful... except for Alexa Bliss' ear-piercing scream. That was pretty funny.

Vader has passed away. He was 63. According to his official Twitter account: "It is with a heavy heart to inform everyone that my father, Leon White, passed away on Monday night (6/18/18) at approximately 7:25pm. Around a month ago my father was diagnosed with a severe case of Pneumonia. He fought extremely hard and clinically was making progress. Unfortunately, on Monday night his heart had enough and it was his time."

I'm trying to think if there's ever been a better big man in the ring than Vader? Bam Bam Bigelow, maybe?

Bam Bam is up there. I've always had a soft spot for Earthquake, but he couldn't move like Vader and Bigelow.

If Brock Lesnar is in that category, he would surpass Vader.

If you're only counting guys with Vader's body type, it's between him and Bam Bam.

Earthquake taught my best friend's older brother math and PE in high school.

Yeah, I'm thinking guys way north of 300 lb. Leans doesn't crack 300, but he's more along the lines of the WWF guys from the 80s/early 90s. The whole titans thing. He would be normal sized for that era.
