Welcome to OWW Radio! Each week hosts David (@dlb19338) and Alex (@AlexGoff84) will provide perspective to the WWE, TNA, and everything else making news in the world of professional wrestling. This week David and Alex talk about everything leading up to and including Wrestlemania XXX, now only a week away in New Orleans, LA! We chat about the Undertaker, John Cena, Bray Wyatt, Daniel Bryan, the Divas, the tag team division, and much more. We hope you enjoy the show!
The Undisputed Wrestling Show (www.facebook.com/theundisputedwrestlingshow) with hosts “The Prophet” Rick Craig, “Beer Me” Zane Pasley, and “The Morning Star” William Huckaby recently had the pleasure of talking with “The World’s Most Dangerous Man with an Eyepatch” Scotty Riggs! Scotty Riggs is a former WCW World Tag Team and had a great run in the original Extreme Championship Wrestling.
Scotty Riggs on John Cena: “Every single match is the same, and it is sickening. Five simple moves every match. When it is time for Cena’s comeback it is the same moves, boom, boom, boom. That does not suspend any disbelief. That is what wrestlers are supposed to do, have the craft to anywhere in the match a finish can come up.” “Cena has mixed himself with the Super Cena thing, which is what Vince McMahon has a hard on for, he is a good guy that is so good that it is sickening. That is why so many people don’t like him.” “Cena is WWE’s cash cow. When I am watching Cena I feel like I am watching a TV commercial. Everything he is doing, he is selling cereal, he is selling tee shirts, he is selling something in everything he does.”
So the top of the Wrestlemania card is shaping up, and if we’re being honest, it is pretty underwhelming. The “face” of the WWE, Randy Orton is scheduled to headline the event versus Batista, a match exactly zero people are excited to see. Maybe WWE management will add Daniel Bryan to the match to please the fans, but as of now Bryan is scheduled to wrestle Triple H. And besides I’m not a big fan of changing matches the night of a show. I like the build. I like the storylines. That’s what sells it for me. Not last-minute changes. It took 2 years for the Mega-Powers to explode, and when they finally met in Atlantic City it was a memorable moment.
Hello dear wrestling fans, here we go with another addition of Falls Count Anywhere. This week, I thought I cover a little bit on various topics that are on the minds of not only myself, but many wrestling fans. There is a lot of things I’ve liked a lot, and a few that have been perplexing to say the least. Let’s get going!
Regarding Daniel Bryan maintaining his popularity and continuing to grow, Cena said, “Predicting the next WWE Superstar is like predicting the crooked stock market at the turn of the 19th century. You just can’t. That’s what’s beautiful about the WWE audience, that’s why I love it so much. It changes everyday, every arena, every city. I don’t know who will be next but I will keep trying to put people front and center so the WWE Universe gets a good look at people.”
Here we go again, another CM Punk disagreement with management. Hard to believe, I know. About a year ago, while writing for another publisher, I wrote about how Punk was the unrivaled best in the world.
PWInsider reported that Sheamus vs. Daniel Bryan is “pretty much set in stone” for the WrestleMania XXX card. Another match that is back on is Bray Wyatt vs. John Cena. This match was put to the side once talks got serious with Hulk Hogan. WWE officials wanted to do something with Hogan and Cena but as noted last week, Hogan was recently evaluated by WWE doctors and the decision was made to not book Hogan in any kind of physical role. Now the Cena vs. Wyatt match is back in the mix.
