WWE Battleground 2015 HITS and MISSES

WWE Battleground 2015 HITS: The Undertaker’s Return: In 2015, 30 years since I became a wrestling fan, there isn’t a lot that gets me to literally jump off the couch anymore.  Granted, the return was spoiled multiple times online (and all-but-confirmed by a WWE source I had dinner with over the weekend), however when the gong sounded on the Pay Per View, I literally jumped right off of my couch in excitement.  Brock Lesnar vs. (a healthy) Undertaker should…

A trip down MemoryMania

  Words such as awesome, unbelievable, unreal and amazing have become overused and almost cliché in this day of social media dominance. So frequently are they used that they have lost their significance. As such, my search for words to convey how I feel has begun as I reflect on what I can only describe as the single greatest trip I’ve ever went on. Ever.

Jan and Justin make their WrestleMania 29 picks

Jan: I like Cena for a number of reasons. First, he’s still the face of this company. He’s been putting over a number of other talents in recent years and the mounting losses are beginning to hurt is credibility.
