“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.
Maybe I’m talking about the masses or the few, every time the Slammy Awards comes around it is a big fun ole event. Now WWE had these for a few years back in the late 90’s but from an award ceremony to a comedy bit after a comedy bit, some have to wonder how things have changed. Now does it bring something different to the show yes. The problem is that it should be something taken seriously. If you look at some of the categories, you have to think why should I care about this? Or why is this even on here?
Professional wrestling has always been filled with hulking masses of humanity, doing battle to establish their supremacy over the competition. However, some titans towered over even the biggest Superstars.
Sometimes, these giants of the squared circle team up, resulting in complete devastation. Much like the duo of Big E Langston and Mark Henry on the Nov. 25 edition of Raw, these gargantuan grapplers left nothing but destruction in their paths. The carnage they caused seemed like something out of a monster movie, but for their opponents, it was very, very real and extremely painful.
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.

* Superstar of the Year

Jake “the Snake” Roberts talked recently with Steve and the Scum on WGD Weekly. During this very candid 45 minute interview, Roberts discusses all points of his life and his legendary career, from his difficult childhood and struggles with addiction right up and through his current “rebirth” over the course of the past year working with Dallas Page. The interview can be heard in its entirety here:
The highlights of the interview include Jake talking about the following:
The possibility of buying TNA Wrestling: “…I want to run an Indigogo and raise the money to buy that son of a bitch and do it right. Not to be in competition with Vince, but to do wrestling the way I liked it. Maybe it will happen, maybe it won’t. But, now I hear the guy from Smashing Pumpkins is snatching it, so maybe I should just buy the band Smashing Pumpkins and go on with my life and start singing…”
Review of the December 4, 2013 edition of WWE Main Event:
Goldust Def. Ryback Via DQ
This was supposed to be the big match that really feel flat. Goldust has done some good matches in the past and really on his game but Ryback’s style didn’t flow well. It looks like with the Wyatt Family and The Shield already in a program that we will get these guys taking on the champions. Most likely at the TLC PPV.
The Usos Def. Drew McIntyre and Jinder Mahal
A fun tag match but we have seen so many times that it just feels like filler. The Uso’s are mega over and proven they go with anyone in the tag division. 3MB needs to be repackaged in serious way.
The goal of every young sports-entertainment hopeful is to hear their name announced as they strut down the aisle in a WWE arena. For a select few, that dream comes true. But for others, the name that ends up being announced is a complete nightmare.
