Why this Unification Match is a BAD idea…

December 5, 2013

I think I am one of few who isn’t crazy about this unification match between Cena and Orton. I understand what most are saying with there only being one brand now but I thought I would list out my reasons on why I think one unified champion is flawed.

WWE trying something new at SummerSlam

August 11, 2011

From WWE.com 

If you’re heading to SummerSlam this weekend at Los Angeles’ STAPLES Center, there’s a new way to take part in the excitement. This Sunday, WWE introduces a revolutionary new radio that allows attendees of the Biggest Party of the Summer – and all pay-per-view events – to listen in on ringside commentary live with the WWE Live Commentary Radio.

If you’ve ever been to a WWE live event or any live sporting event, one major difference from watching the event on television is the lack of play-by-play commentary. The WWE Live Commentary Radio is going to change that, allowing fans in attendance to listen to the SummerSlam television broadcast featuring the likes of WWE Hall of Famers Jerry “The King” Lawler and Jim Ross, as well as Michael Cole, Booker T and Josh Mathews.

The WWE Live Commentary Radio will be available at merchandise stands on the concourse for $15 each. The radios are yours to keep and can be used as a traditional FM radio once the event has ended, and they can be used at future live events where WWE Commentary Radio is available. Supplies are limited so be sure to arrive early!

What do you think about this idea? Sometimes I think some angles are lost without the commentary (especially backstage brawls) but I assume you can miss out on chants and whatnot if you’re too busy listening to the commentary in the arena. I will definitely give them points for trying something completely different.

Bragging Rights Predictions

October 24, 2010

WWE Champion Randy Orton vs. Wade Barrett (with John Cena)

Great Puma: Wade Barrett wins the WWE Championship for the first time.  His mug is on the Survivor Series poster so I’ll assume that’s a sign for big things to come for him and the Nexus.  They’ve made to much a deal about Cena being in his corner so I expect Cena to be a big part of this match.  If not, I see Harris and McGillicutty making an appearance as well in this match.

Mascara De Fuego: Wade Barrett wins the Title. I think it is too important not to do this. Not only will this put over Barrett (and the Nexus) more so but it will give that dyer feeling to the WWE. With that kind of turmoil surrounding the WWE Title, the WWE will be looking for someone to take the belt off of Barrett quickly but that one person is unfortunately is IN Nexus. That will only build this Nexus/Cena angle more so.

Hell in a Cell [Live Updates]

October 3, 2010

FighterHayabusa.com will be giving you live updates throughout the night!  Keep refreshing as we’ll be updating after every match or ‘significant’ moment.  Thanks for stopping by!

1.  Triple Threat Match (Submissions Count Anywhere)

Daniel Bryan vs. The Miz vs. John Morrison

Daniel Bryan defends his title via Lebell Lock on The Miz on the entrance ramp.

Great Puma: Not sure why Daniel Bryan, the U.S. Champ, is coming out second and not last.  More to come!  Very dope modified Boston Crab over the ropes by Morrison!  Bryan gives us a Cattle Mutilation sighting.  That was amazing to see. Too much to mention here.  All three men utilized their surroundings well.  I love how they really feature Morrison’s parkour training here.  Great “that was awesome!” chant.  They give us all they could in the limited time they were given.  I love it.

Mascara de Fuego: A much better match than I thought the WWE would have them do and much longer than I thought. Solid victory for Bryan although I would like to see more triple threats by these three.
