In this video we show off how strong Braun Strowman is. This World’s Strongest Man competitor is a mountain of a man with a personality to match. He can dead life over 800 pounds, pick up a car and press over 350. He is a beast of a man and I wouldn’t want to piss him off! ENJOY! Braun is the man and hopefully, WWE doesn’t bury him after he loses finally to Roman Reigns.
The WWE Payback aired last night and it was a cluster Fu*k of epic proportions as it just seem clumsy and weird story lines that made really no sense to me. I’m not even going to go through the matches, as the crowd in San Diego made it even worse as they seemed to be in a church and super quiet though the night. First of all why send Jericho to SD?? why and why have The New Face Of America Owens lose his US Title after only a month….WTF….Jericho is going on tour soon with his band Fozzy. The House Of Horrors match was that Horrific….It was like a really bad 80’s horror movie. I was waiting for Jason or Michael Myers to pop out. It was just silly and should and could have been made better with better writing. Roman Reigns Vs. Braun….Why make your number 1 guy who owns the yard now after defeating the legend The Undertaker lose in his first match after The Taker match???? It makes no sense, I know its a buildup to a ambulance match on the next PPV, but they made Roman look weak. I expected better from the WWE after Mania, but this time of the year is usually a lul in WWE action till Summerslam. Time will tell where the WWE is going with these story lines. Time will tell……
On Sunday, the SAP Center in San Jose, California, will be witness to a clash of Monday Night Raw’s best coming off an historic WrestleMania.
With multiple rivals splitting because of the Superstar Shake-up, WWE Payback 2017 will be a night of final clashes between wrestlers who have been feuding since the beginning of the year.
Chief on the Payback card are the three headlining encounters. Roman Reigns returns to battle the man who tried to end his career, Braun Strowman. Bray Wyatt forces Randy Orton to step inside the House of Horrors to pay for his betrayal. And Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho put the final nail in the coffin of their friendship in one last battle for the United States Championship.
Seth Rollins Vs. Samoa Joe : This match will be brutal, but I can’t see either superstar losing so i’m going for a disqualification in this match.
Bayley Vs. Alexa Bliss : I think this match is wayyyy to rushed as Alexa just got to the Raw brand. Sorry Alexa but you will lose to Bayley at Payback .
Hardy Boyz Vs. Cesaro/Sheamus : The Hardyz have to go over Cesaro/Sheamus or lose it and start the broken angle that rumor has it , the WWE has won the right to use the trademark with the Hardyz. Winner = Hardyz!
Kevin Owens Vs. Chris Jericho : The end of the feud of the former best friends. Jericho will be gone soon, as he starts touring with his band Fozzy. Winner = Kevin Owens
Randy Orton Vs. Bray Wyatt : This will be a house of horrors match, and i’m thinking back to the Halloween Havoc shows in WCW. What will the house of horrors match include??? who knows, but I think Wyatt will lose with interference by the demon Finn Balor to ignite their Raw feud. Winner = Randy Orton
Roman Reigns Vs. Braun Stroman : This match I can’t see either one losing as they are both getting huge WWE pushes. Maybe a disqualification or something so both look strong in defeat. Or maybe Stroman destroys Roman and we are without Roman till Summerslam……
The thirty third annual Wrestlemania is done and in the history books. This Wrestlemania had the feeling of a big event , as the Wrestlemanias in the past felt more like big glorified Monday Night Raw shows. This had the big event feel, where you couldn’t figure what was going to happen next. Now i’m changing formats today, as I am reviewing the show as a whole instead of going to review all the matches at the event.
There was good storytelling throughout the show, that made sense to either build a story line or end a story line. I always think of Mania, as either the end of season for some WWE stories or a brand new season for some. This Wrestlemania had both.
The match of the night was most definite The Undertaker Vs. Roman Reigns, as the old dog was taken out of his YARD by the new dog. This was a perfect send off for The Undertaker, as he left his hat and coat in the ring. It was a great passing of the torch story line that WWE is great in telling. It will be interesting to see what WWE does with Reigns.
All in all, Wrestlemania lived up to the hype and delivered the goods. Well done WWE well done, now keep it up…………
The day has finally arrived…..Wrestlemania 33 is upon us….Coming live from Camping World Stadium in Orlando Florida , WWE Wrestlemania will be another night of history. It all kicks off at 5pm with the pre-show on WWE Network and then the show goes LIVE on WWE Network and PPV around the world at 7pm EST. Here are the predictions of the major matches at Mania :
- Andre The Giant Battle Royal : Of all the people involved, I see Braun Stroman or Sami Zayn taking it all this year . Stroman is the latest WWE monster and Zayn is the upcoming superstar.
- Gallow/Anderson Vs. Sheamus/Cesaro vs. Enzo/Cass : Enzo/Cass are over with the fans and I think , they deserve their Wrestlemania moment. As this is a ladder match, expect lots of craziness involved with all superstars. Winner = Enzo/Cass
- Bayley Vs. Charlotte Vs. Sasha Banks Vs. Nia Jax : As Bailey is a life long WWE fan , I think its fair to finally give her a Wrestlemania moment with a pinfall victory over her “friend” Sasha Banks. I see a heel turn of Sasha at the end of the match, as she congratulates Bailey on her victory. Winner = Bailey!
- Aj Styles Vs. Shane Mcmahon : This match is going to be nuts, as I see Shane jumping off a lot of things around the Wrestlemania set for this match . But a Shane win will really do nothing for both performers, so I’m going with a AJ Styles win . Winner = AJ Styles.
- Seth Rollins Vs. Triple H : Triple H always has a match at Mania, and this one is no exception. I see a brutal match happening between the two, but I see Rollins finally getting his revenge on his mentor. Should be brutal . Winner = Seth Rollins
- Bray Wyatt Vs. Randy Orton : I hope Bray could over come the viper to keep the title, as I am a big Bray Wyatt fan . I think we’ve seen way to many Age Of Orton’s and its time for Bray to have his Mania moment . Winner = Bray Wyatt
- Chris Jericho Vs. Kevin Owens : The two former best friends will battle it out at Mania. Jericho is scheduled to start touring with his band Fozzy, after Mania so I see a Owens wins . Winner = Kevin Owens
- Goldberg Vs. Lesnar . Another squash match with Lesnar getting the victory in maybe a minute. Winner = Brock Lesnar
- Undertaker Vs. Roman Reigns : I wish they would have kept the streak alive for The Undertaker as he is a true legend. Many say that this will be The Undertakers last match and I wish he was ending his career with a battle with John Cena than Roman Reigns. The Big Dog will triumph over The Undertaker , but the deadman might just have one or two last rides left in him . Don’t ever count The Undertaker out. Winner = Roman Reigns
As we are six days away from Wrestlemania 33 in Orlando , Here are some cool videos from comedian Matt Light. Matt is a huge wrestling fan and has incorporated wrestling into his standup.

In Mexican lucha libre — professional wrestling known for its masked fighters and cartoonish style — the bad guys rule. They’re known simply as rudos.
“Mexican lucha libre is for rudos. We welcome any rudo who wants to come in here and be badder than the others,” says Marco Espinosa, a fan, from beneath his souvenir lucha libre mask.
So it made sense for Sam Polinsky, a 27-year-old wrestler from Pittsburgh, to try his luck south of the border. He came to Mexico about nine months ago and branded himself as Sam Adonis, “El Rudo de las Chicas” or the “Ladies’ Bad Guy.”
When Donald Trump won the presidency after a campaign that regularly scapegoated and insulted the Mexican people, Polinsky saw an opportunity to turn up the heat on his bad-guy character.
“I had a perfect idea: Why not come to the arena with [an American] flag, but I’m gonna take this to a whole other level,” he says, unfurling a flag and grinning. “I have a 4-ft. flag with the face of Donald Trump on it.”
With this prop, he became the surrogate of Donald Trump in Mexican lucha libre.
His over-the-top, absurd style blends well into the sport. It is a wacky, colorful show punctuated by amazing acrobatics and always following the same script: The good guys, known as técnicos, the equivalent of “babyface,” line up across from the rudos in a battle of justice.
On a Friday evening in Mexico City, Polinsky is getting ready for his latest fight at Arena México, the holy site of Mexican wrestling, which regularly draws 10,000 fans. His girlfriend blow-dries and straightens his long blond mohawk. She helps him spray tan his face and body, using a mini-paint roller to smooth out the streaks.
For Polinsky, being a baddie — especially one who generates such immediate, enraged reactions from Mexicans — is exhilarating.
Well another Royal Rumble is in the history books, and the WWE messed up again. The show up to the Rumble itself was really good, with great matches and then we got too the rumble and it started off very promising but as the bigger guys all came out pretty much at the end and then got eliminated it was disappointing. Randy Orton was the winner and i’m glad at least it was unexpected, but why Orton and why now???? Are we now going to have Cena Vs. Orton 1,000???? And why have Goldberg, Lesnar, The Undertaker if they are not going to do anything in the rumble??….It was like a WWE bait and switch on the fans and very disappointing. Here is the recap of the night :
John Cena Vs. Aj Styles : The Match of the night hands down, so many moves and close calls. These two put on a wrestling classic. And although i’m not a huge Cena fan he deserved this win. A+
Roman Reigns VS. Kevin Owens : Good match , but disappointing ending as Braun Storman came out and attacked Roman which led to Owens pinning Reigns. Hey WWE let Owens win on his own at least once . B
Charlotte VS. Bailey : Very good and exciting match, but we knew that it wasn’t Baileys time yet….But she made everybody a believer that she belongs with the best…She will have her title run soon… A-
Cesaro/Sheamus VS. Gallows/Anderson : A surprise that the WWE would have the titles change hands on the pre-show but anything is possible in the WWE. It does suck that Cesaro/Sheamus lost after only about a month as champions. WWE should have kept The New Day the champs till Royal Rumble. B-
The Royal Rumble Match : I’m always excited to see who is coming up, but there were no surprises this year. No new faces, no surprises at all. Only surprise was that Randy Orton won the whole thing. WWE could have had The Taker win it all or Goldberg, at least that would have been more exciting than Randy Orton. C
The WWE Royal Rumble starts tonight at 5pm with the pre-show and the event starts at 7pm LIVE on The WWE Network….Here is our predictions of how things will go down tonight on the road to Wrestlemania.
- Sasha Banks Vs. Nia Jax : WWE is building Nia as a monster and I can’t see Sasha beat her here. WWE should have Nia win and then have a rematch at Wrestlemania . WINNER = NIA JAX
- Cesaro/Sheamus Vs. Gallows/Anderson : I LOVE Cesaro/Sheamus and I see them going over Gallows/Anderson pretty quickly, as they should keep building up Cesaro/Sheamus. WINNER = Cesaro/Sheamus
- Rich Swann Vs. Neville : Swann is a very talented athlete and has a bright future ahead, but I see Neville winning tonight and capturing The Cruiserweight title as Neville makes a good heel. WINNER = NEW Cruiserweight Champion Neville.
- Kevin Owens Vs. Roman Reigns : Now with this match I am seeing Roman Reigns Vince’s golden boy going over Kevin to win The WWE Universal Championship. The WWE may have a swerve in this one and have Owens keep the title all on his own as his best friend Chris Jericho is locked up in a shark cage above the ring. I could see Roman coming into Wrestlemania as The Universal Heavyweight Champion . WINNER = NEW Universal Champion Roman Reigns.
- Charlotte Vs. Bayley : This match is for the WWE Woman’s title and I really like Charlotte as the champion, and its still too early to see Bailey as champion and the story line will be better if Bailey loses tonight, but battles again at Wrestlemania to win the title. WINNER = Charlotte Flair
- AJ Styles Vs. John Cena : This will be a good match, as these two have put on great matches in the past. I see Cena winning the title here as he ties Ric Flair title runs and it puts Cena as Champion of whoever wins The Royal Rumble tonight. Winner = New Heavyweight Champion John Cena.
- The 30 man Royal Rumble : With so many big guys and big names involved it will be interesting to see what number they come out. I hope the WWE doesn’t have Goldberg, Lesnar, Undertaker all come out as the final participants. I see this Rumble as the last ride of The Undertaker , as he wants to go into Wrestlemania as a challenger to John Cena’s title and we get a Cena/Undertaker match at Mania. Golberg will throw out Lesnar and this will bring them to have another match at Wrestlemania. I’m looking forward to seeing who is the breakout star tonight, it might just be Big Cass or somebody else. Winner = The Undertaker
Well there you go, there is our Royal Rumble 2017 predictions. Join us tomorrow as we have a recap of everything that went down tonight. If you don’t have The WWE Network order it as you don’t want to miss this show . You could order The WWE Network here :
