“WrestleMania 31, Levi’s Stadium and the Evolution of WWE’s Marquee Event”
After initially being reported by both NBC Bay Area and Wrestling Observer Newsletter editor Dave Meltzer (F4WOnline.com subscribers-only link), WWE.com has officially announced that WrestleMania 31 in 2015 is going to be held at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif. Scheduled to open this Summer and located right on the border of Santa Clara and San Jose, Levi’s Stadium will be the home of the NFL’s San Franscico 49ers starting next season.
Its finally out there, in WWE own words or more less Triple H weekly sit down interview with Michael Cole he said: “In 11 years, after the brand extension is no longer, at TLC we will have a undisputed champion”, now I summed up what he said but that’s the majority of what he said about this match.
30 for 30 parties like its 1999!!!! And on today’s episode, it KIND OF IS! But it’s also 2000.

Celebrate the new millenium!!
Bombastic J and Bodacious G join the Emperor Big D as always…
Listen to the show here:
There has been speculation for years that “Stone Cold” Steve Austin would come out of retirement and have one more match. At WrestleMania would be the perfect calling card for him to have that one last match. At 48 years of age should he really. Think about this, in 2003 his body was telling him to call it a day and he finally did at WrestleMania 19 against The Rock. Why should he really come out of retirement? It wouldn’t be for the money because we all know he is set.
As seen on this week’s edition of Monday Night Raw, Rey Mysterio made his return once again to WWE. Now I knew that he would be returning at some point but when I saw his music played and ran down to the ring I was not excited. When I was younger I was a fan of his. I watch his matches back in ECW and WCW; he made his WWE debut in 2002 but is he that special? He was World Heavyweight champion twice and not for that long. He was WWE champion for a night but was defeated by John Cena. He is very injury prone but every time he gets injured, he has a spot waiting on him when he becomes healthy again.
I want to go back and see if he is really this great or just a fan favorite.
I am a die-hard wrestling fan and I like to go back watching old, classic matches of wrestling. From now on these columns will go back and relive some of these matches. The first edition is for the World Heavyweight Championship from SummerSlam of 2004 involving the Champion in Chris Benoit and the challenger Randy Orton.
I’ll be the first one to tell you that I cannot stand The Miz no more than anyone else. If you think about it, why do we dislike him so much? Is it the fact that is cocky, annoying, and obnoxious? He has been pushed down our throats? If you look at his history then maybe you will have a different opinion on “the awesome one”
Now everyone knows about how he got onto WWE through “the real world” reality show on MTV then onto tough enough back in 2004. He did not win the show but a job in the land of the giants. Now The Miz didn’t pay his Indy dues but the WWE one no doubt.
He worked dark matches in 2005 then made his WWE TV debut on SmackDown in 2006 as a host. Now he was a good host no doubt. He has that talking, walking attitude where he is was over confident.
