Ever think Brian Danielson would win the WWE World Heavyweight Title…and have it not be the primary subject of discussion from a Wrestlemania 30?

Nope. Not me.
Everyone who writes about wrestling from the mega-sites like the Wrestling Observer and PWinsider.com to the smallest message board figured they’d be writing about Brian Danielson this morning.

Former WCW star The Maestro reveals his WrestleMania XXX predictions

The-MaestroFormer WCW star The Stro (formerly known as The Maestro) has published a new column at PWMania.com. Stro gives his thoughts and expert predictions for Sunday’s WWE pay-per-view WrestleMania XXX. Stro talks about each match at Sunday’s WrestleMania PPV and also talks on the WWE Hall of Fame, Scott Hall, Jake “The Snake” Roberts and more. Here is an excerpt from his entry:

Scott Hall: My former USWA tag team partner. My fellow WCW/NWO alumni. My buddy Razor Ramon/Scott Hall. Before I met Scott. I was a big fan of his from his early days tagging with Dan Spivey as “Starship Coyote”, his time wrestling with CWF from Florida, his run in the AWA teaming with Curt Hennig , and his stint in WCW as “The Diamond Studd”. Saw a match down in Puerto Rico he had when I first saw “The Razor’s Edge” finisher. Thought at the time that was one of the most innovated finishing moves I had seen. “The Bad Guy” became Intercontinental champion in the WWE and to this day people still talk about the historic ladder match he had with Shawn Michaels at Wrestlemania 10. Remember Dutch Mantell (WWE’s Zeb Colter) telling me he thought at one point Razor was gonna be WWE champion at the time. He certainly had all the tools. Him and Kevin Nash would later come to WCW and along with a turning Hulk Hogan made history forming the infamous “New World Order”.”

Well, the event schedule for Wrestlemania 30 is going to be a busy one.

I’m not referring to the WWE-sponsored events, which are many; but the events by outside promoters, which (as always) are even more. For those of you reading who want to wrap themselves up of WWE for three days or more in New Orleans, to each their own…enjoy.

But since PWBTS promotes independent wrestling, I’ll share a few with you of the latter in this week’s column. You can also check out updates on all of these events every day on PWBTS.com.
