We get America the Beautiful from Keri Wilson, the set looks massive!


They are not wasting time, the Rock hits the stage for a thunderous ovation. He’s wearing a track suit this the brahma bull on the back with the American flag interweaved into it. After posing on the stage the Rock heads to the ring. After posing for Atlanta and getting heavily cheer the Rock gets on the mic and delivers his “Finally….” line and says this will be the biggest WrestleMania ever. Now we get “Rocky” and “Cena sucks” chants. Rock says they are going to do something special, he says “wrestle” and the crowd says “mania”. He says there is one superstar in the back trying to decide which fruity pebble shirt to wear. He then says “yabba” and the crowd says “dabba”. Haha He puts over WrestleMania then cuts a promo as bad ass as only the Rock can do. The crowd is eating this up! He’s going to say “if you smell…” but stops himself and has the fans say it with him! Solid shit to get the this crowd hyped.


Now a WrestleMania promo is shown putting the event over making it sound bigger than the birth of baby Jesus.

WrestleMania 27 Rundown – Part 4

April 2, 2011

Click to read   PART 1 / PART 2 / PART 3

Part 4

Mascara De Fuego: Ok so our next match is for the World Heavyweight Championship…

Edge with Christian vs. Royal Rumble Winner, Alberto Del Rio w/Brodus Clay

Great Puma: Why do I get that horrible feeling of a possible Christian heel turn? They wouldn’t cheapen this title match with a heel turn would they? I hope not. Alberto Del Rio needs to win this and become World Heavyweight Champion for the first time. He’s worked his ass off in developing his character ever since he stepped in a Smackdown ring. He’s a top 3 heel behind the Miz and Vicky Guerrero and his in-ring work has been impeccable.

Mascara De Fuego: I think after having Del Rio lose clean to Christian twice in a row, they really need to have him come over strong but I have a feeling its not going to be a heel turn but a miss queue that causes Edge to lose the title. Something like Christian will be on the ropes trying to get the refs attention because Alberto is doing something illegal. Edge goes to whip Alberto into the ropes, but he reverses, Edge and Christian butt heads and Alberto capitalizes with the arm breaker for the tap out. Christian and Edge will argue which will lead to a match at Summerslam… and yeah I just pulled this out of my ass just now. haha

Our next match, is for the streak…

The Undertaker vs. Triple H

Great Puma: Props to the WWE writing team and production team for making compelling video packages and promo segments that actually make you have some doubts about Undertaker improving to 19-0. They’ve done a great job of convincing the fans that HHH is going to finish the job that Shawn Michaels started two years ago. All that said, Undertaker takes this and continues the streak. The streak is now just as important as Wrestlemania itself and it should never be stopped.

Mascara De Fuego: Although I don’t think anyone REALLY thinks that the streak is ending they have done a good job in making it believe that it is a possibility. Production has done so much in so little time from the beginning with a segment that had no words to this week with Taker, HHH and HBK in the ring. Solid work on their end and its a damn shame they don’t treat more of the roster like this. I think the match will be better than anyone excepts.

And finally without question on if it should finish the show…

WWE Champion The Miz vs. John Cena

Great Puma: What I want to happen: Miz goes over. Cena turns heel and gets his ass beat by the Rock and the show ends with Rock giving Cena a People’s Elbow. What will probably happen: Cena goes over big and is attacked by the Miz and Alex Riley. The Rock HELPS Cena fight them off, but then Rock Bottoms Cena and gives him the People’s Elbow to send the crowd home happy. I hope that the Rock gets his receipt at Wrestlemania. It has to happen.

Mascara De Fuego: I hope Cena and Rock don’t end the show all huggy/kissy. I want to see Miz getting the win to retain and have Cena and Rock have a pull apart that lasts 10 minutes and finally ends with Rock hitting the People’s Elbow. After continuously thinking on how this match will end, this is the scenario that I think makes sense and plants the seeds for Rock vs. Cena down the road. I think Miz as champion benefits the company because he has that cross over appeal with a broader group of fans. Having Cena in that roll can alienate fans who won’t want to stay up late to see Cena on Fallon because they aren’t a fan of his. Miz although playing a heel can be very personable and is the best spokesman the company has.

Great Puma: From a business standpoint that makes the most sense. I don’t think this should be the Main Event since its ending is somewhat of a loose end. I’m thinking HHH vs. Undertaker should be main event since that match will end on a high note.

Mascara De Fuego: I went back and forth with this one but I think what makes this match the main event is the promise that The Rock is getting involved some how. As strange as it sounds the match I REALLY think needs to go last is Cole vs. Lawler! It’s had the best build of them all.

Great Puma: I respectfully disagree. I think Taker vs. HHH has the best build up. Manias always end on a high note…well except for 2000 and 17. Taker winning is as good of a high note as it gets.

Mascara De Fuego: As Ron Burgundy would say, “When in Rome.” Ok folks that brings us to the end of another WrestleMania rundown. Any final thoughts on this card gentleman Puma?

Great Puma: I think we covered it, sir de Fuego! All the Snooki hate needs to stop. She’s bringing in business and it’s not like the WWE is going to put the Divas title on her. Which reminds me, will the Divas Title be defended at ‘Mania? Outlook not so good.

Mascara De Fuego: Doesn’t look good for the Diva’s Title unless they do something out of the blue or a dark match. I think this card came together well and will be a solid show overall, I’m excited!

PART 1 / PART 2 / PART 3

WrestleMania 27 Rundown – Part 3

April 2, 2011

Part 3

Mascara De Fuego: The last of the mid card matches…

United States Champion Sheamus vs. Daniel Bryan

Great Puma: Bryan wins. Period. It’s a bad match up for Bryan since he won’t be able to do a lot of his signature offense with Sheamus. On the defensive end, Bryan is going to make Sheamus look like gold. I expect Bryan to be pummeled for most of the match only to make a valiant come back that leads to a submission victory.
Mascara De Fuego: I have to say, after seeing Bryan lose twice now to Sheamus on TV this has kind of taken the steam out this match. It gives me no faith that they will have Bryan go over and instead use this match to get Sheamus over further after his burial.
Mascara De Fuego: Now we get into main event territory and probably the match that got more build than any other,

Michael Cole with Jack Swagger taking on Jerry “The King” Lawler with Stone Cold Steve Austin as the special Ref.

Great Puma: If Tool Box wins, I will personally riot! Lawler must and will go over here. Fans won’t leave happy unless Lawler piledrives Tool Box into oblivion and Jack Swagger receives a Stunner from the Rattlesnake. Sniff, now I’m missing the Swagger Soaring Eagle.
Mascara De Fuego: HA! This would have been a great spot to have the Eagle get stunned. Yeah, I think you
Mascara De Fuego: ‘re right. Lawler needs to go over strong here with maybe landing the second rope fist drop since I think they’ll keep Taker strong with the tombstone piledriver. They’ve gotten really selective with that move and I don’t see them going to the well twice in one show. The question after Mania though is what to do with Michael Cole? I’m hoping he moves into a manager type role (something the WWE is missing) and manages Swagger. I think that would be a good use of Cole now that he really has grown out of commentating
Great Puma: He hasn’t grown out of commentating. He just sucks. They need give Josh Mathews the ball at the announcers table.
Mascara De Fuego: Oh better than that I think they need Jim Ross back if even to give Josh the rub down the road.
Great Puma: I dunno. I actually like hearing Jim Ross at the big four major PPVs and special RAWs only.
Mascara De Fuego: I’d even settle for that but the fact that this guy is forced to sit at home with nothing to do is a god damn shame.
Great Puma: Eh…I think he’s loving his BBQ business. I sense a lot of passion in his blogs and tweets about his sauce and everything else.

Check back tomorrow for part two of our WrestleMania coverage!

WrestleMania 27 Rundown – Part 2

April 2, 2011

Part 2

Mascara De Fuego: Welcome back to day two of our WrestleMania 27 Rundown! Next we have…

Rey Mysterio vs. Cody Rhodes

Great Puma: This is my sleeper pick for Match of the Night. It’s not likely since there’s so much weight behind Undertaker vs. HHH and Miz vs. Cena will probably feature the Rock in some fashion. However, when it comes to two wrestlers competing at a high level, this match should provide the goods. I’m thinking Rey puts Cody over to advance the storyline. This will not be the last match between these two in the coming months. I just hope Cody comes out in tights.
Mascara De Fuego: Agreed. I too am looking for this match to steal the show. Rey has been the constant go-to performer to land solid matches with. Last years match with Punk was great and this should be about the same. I am glad, this could be what Cody needs to make the next step, something Ted DiBiase can’t even do right now.
Mascara De Fuego: Speaking of Punk, he is in our next match…

CM Punk vs. Randle Keith Orton

Great Puma: For some reason my booker sense is telling me that Punk goes over in this match. In my own delusional booker mind, Skip Sheffield comes back to destroy Randal and help Punk win the match. If that doesn’t happen, Randal takes it in a good hard-hitting match.
Mascara De Fuego: I really can’t see Orton going over, he’s taken out all of the New Nexus and I think its time to balance things out and give Punk the final verdict in this feud. This could lead to Punk chasing John Cena for the WWE Title but I’m not sure I’m ready to see Cena and the Nexus shit again.

Check back tomorrow for part two of our WrestleMania coverage!

WrestleMania 27 Rundown – Part 1

April 2, 2011

Part 1

Mascara De Fuego: Welcome everyone to’s WrestleMania 27 Rundown!
Great Puma: That’s right brother! I’m ready to dazzle and entertain like Team Chericho on Dancing with the Stars! Don’t forget to vote 800-868-3409!!! Oh wait…
Mascara De Fuego: Good work getting that in sir, definitely not watching but I did vote! Did I mention to you Puma that I saw Jericho over the weekend buying bow ties on Melrose? He sends his regards.
Great Puma: That’s awesome. I hope the guy gains a lot of new fans. Alrighty…
Mascara De Fuego: So Puma here we are for another WrestleMania Predictions & Opinions show! Where would you like to start, main event down or vise versa?
Great Puma: Main Event is last…
Mascara De Fuego: Alright so that means we start with the just announced,

The Corre vs. The Big Show, Kane, Santino and Vladimir Kozlov

Mascara De Fuego: This match was rumored to have Christian and Kofi but apparently they went with Kozlov and Santino. I think they finally realize that although Santino is comedy he is in fact MONEY! It’s not going to be the best match on the card but it might have a few highlights. I’m going with Kane, Show, Santino and Kozlov.
Great Puma: This reminds of when Ahmed Johnson teamed up with the Road Warriors to defeat the N.O.D. at ‘Mania 13. The faces always take this sort of giant tag team match up. Show, Kane, and Cobrazlov take this. After all, what’s a Wrestlemania without the COBRA!!!
Mascara De Fuego: Next we have…

Trish Stratus, John Morrison and Snooki from the Jersey Shore vs. Dolph Ziggler with Vicki Guerrero and LayCool

Great Puma: It’s Lawrence Taylor all over again. The WWE doesn’t bring in “celebrities” to job them. Trish, Morrison and Snooki take this in an entertaining match. I’ll be happy if Morrison and Trish get to pull their finishers off.
Mascara De Fuego: Yeah this isn’t going to get any awards but at least they they will get more mainstream media coverage on TMZ etc. It’s all set up for Snooki to his a Thesz Press on Vicki it seems.

Check back tomorrow for part two of our WrestleMania coverage!

WWE does an angle at Wrestlemania 27 AXXESS

April 2, 2011

From – This morning, The Borre attacked Vladimir Kozlov just moments after he defeated Tyler Reks. You can read about it here and watch the video here.

You can probably assume that Kofi Kingston is going to take his place in the 8-Man tag match on Sunday.

~ This is a genius move on the WWE’s part. Considering the amount of followers they have on twitter and on their website, why not further develop their various storylines through different social media platforms?

Chicago, IL

IC Title Rematch
Wade Barrett and Kofi Kingston wrestle to a no contest

  • Kofi starts off hot but gets booted off a springboard attempt to the outside.
  • High Cross Body from the top by Kofi for two.
  • Kofi goes for Trouble in Paradise but Barrett boots the hell out of him in mid-flight.
  • Kofi actually hits Trouble in Paradise again but the Borre enter the ring.
  • Santino and Kozlov come in but get served.
  • Big Show and Kane come in the ring to play Giant and Big Red Captain Save-a-Ho’s.

~ It was what it was. They had to promote their Wrestlemania match. I’ve been looking forward to seeing the Borre getting plundered for weeks now. I’m also expecting to see a Wrestlemania Cobra sighting.



March 28, 2011

It’s the go-home show for WrestleMania!


Show starts right off the back with CM Punk sitting in the ring Indian style with a spot light. He gets a “CM Punk” chant. He says he probably isn’t going to get the reception in Atlanta like he does in Chicago. He says they are his people just like the New Nexus that Randle KeithOrton took out. He turns on the crowd and Nexus saying he doesn’t care what happens to them and if you get punted in the head its not his problem. His only problem is Orton. And now these sell outs in Chicago chant “Randy”. He says he can snap his fingers and get any mindless person to do what he says. He then cuts to the video of last week where Punk tricks Orton with his bus. Punk says Orton’s wife goes to bed with the vision of her husband laying on the ground with Punk standing over him. Punk ends with saying he will end this chapter at WrestleMania. Before he can leave the ring Orton with a bandaged leg comes out, he slowly comes to the ring, they brawl and Orton gets his horizontal rope DDT. Orton looks to go for the RKO but instead takes the corner for the punt, he runs towards Punk but his injured leg gives out. Punk rolls out of the ring while we get another chant for him and he looks back at Orton favoring his leg. Punk smiles as he comes into the ring and corners Orton. Punk then kicks Orton’s leg and he’s down. Punk then takes Orton up and hits the G2S! Punk then walks off. I think they did a good job of pushing this match one last time.


Christian is in the back and walks into Edge. Edge says he can’t lay his hands on Del Rio on Smacky but he can on RAW and Edge says he’s always liked that GM. Haha We get the Edge and Christian tag team return tonight! I’m glad they didn’t blow this match on just a Smackdown but not sure they should have done it on a go home show either unless there is something up here…


Edge & Christian vs. Alberto Del Rio & Brodus Clay

-Quick tags by E&C on Clay.

-Clay is then dumped over the top rope, Christian over the top but Clay catches him. Edge hits the baseball slide to send Clay down.

-After the break, ADR has Christian in an arm lock, he tries to fight off but ADR cuts him short.

-Del Rio continually works on Christian’s arm before making the tag to Clay.

-Clay hits the slam then tags ADR back in for the second rope elbow drop.

-Tornado DDT by Christian in the corner on Del Rio and he makes the hot tag but ADR tags in Clay.

-Edge with the back slide on Clay and sets up for the spear but ADR sweeps the leg.

-Christian goes after ADR but is taken out on the barricade.

-Edge ducks the clothesline but Clay and hits the spear for the win!

Winner: Edge and Christian


Outside the ring ADR puts the arm breaker on Christian until Edge runs him off. Edge goes back to check on Christian by Del Rio comes back out and puts the arm breaker on Edge! The ref finally gets ADR off of Edge who tells Edge hits his destiny. Good push for this match as well. I liked the fact Edge and Del Rio didn’t actually get into it until the ring.


Another solid Sin Cara promo, this time with Aztec temples in the background.


The Miz and Riley in the back, they’ve turned the WWE logo in the back upside down.


Before anything else can happen we get an email. Cole has an iPad in his glass case. The GM wants to know if Lawler is ready for WrestleMania which a match tonight with Jack Swagger.


Video package on the Undertaker and Triple H is shown next. Good shit.


We are back from break and The Corre is in the ring.


The Corre vs. Big Show, Kane, Kozlov & Santino has been added to WrestleMania.


Santino w/Kane, Show, Kozlov & Tamina vs. Justin Gabriel w/The Corre

-Santino chant off the bat.

-Spin kick to Santino after the Slater distraction for a 2 count.

-Splits by Santino into the hip toss and the diving head butt.

-Kozlov sweeps Gabriel’s leg during the ref distraction which it breaks down at ringside.

-Cobra on Gabriel!!! 1…2…THREEE!

Winner: Santino


All four are in the ring and Santino has Big Show do the trumpet. Kane doesn’t look amused and stares down Santino but then goes into the trumpet as well for a big pop from the crowd. Funny.


Triple H does the walk in the back.


Some chick named Keri Hilson is doing America The Beautiful at WrestleMania. Never heard of her but at least it isn’t Justin Bieber or god forbid Rebecca Black.


The Undertaker makes his slow ominous way to the ring to a solid pop from the crowd. Right has Taker gets in the ring, Triple H’s music hits and he makes his way to the ring. Before HHH can spit out his water the gongs go off again and the ring goes black. The lights come back on and HHH and Taker are staring at each other in the ring. I have a feeling HBK’s music is about to hit….OH SHIT IT DOES!!! HAHA! Shawn Michael comes out looking as casual as ever in a tee with no sleeves and a beanie… come on Shawn! Crowd is eating this up hard as Taker and HHH stand just staring at each other and glancing over at HBK. “HBK” chant. Michael’s says he is sorry about interrupting but he didn’t want to miss this, he then shills their match, Taker and HHH. Shawn then says neither will be the same again after this Sunday and has one question “what makes you think you can do what I couldn’t” then looks at HHH. Another “HBK” chant. HHH says if he wants to know the truth, HBK got soft when being the showstopper or Mr. WrestleMania was more important. How you don’t have to win every night to be those things but he isn’t Shawn Michaels and that he HAS to win and he will win. HHH says 16 years ago he came into the WWE locker room and saw one guy that stood over them all, how HHH watched him come to the ring all busted up and still put his body on the line. How he learned that if he should pattern his career like anyone it would be Taker. How he respects Taker as much as HBK. Triple H said he and HBK made a promise to each other that when they noticed the other was past his prime they would tell each other and if they didn’t except it they would end it for him, because they respect each other. He said he came back after a year off for one reason only, to stand in front of Taker out of respect and hell him its time. How Triple H can see for Taker to bow out, how Taker will always be these things but that in 6 days he will no longer be undefeated at WrestleMania. Triple H says he’s the one to make Taker 18-1 and the streak as well as Taker will rest in peace. Taker finally takes the mic and says if he ever felt there was a time he needed to be put down he would want it to be HHH because that is the respect he has for him but he says it isn’t that time. How he knows HHH is going to kill himself trying but the streak will be alive and so will he. He says if he doesn’t want to take his word, to ask HBK. How HBK walks around as the guy who gave Taker 2 of his greatest matches of his career but he came up short and didn’t get it done. Now when he looks in the eyes of Shawn Michaels he doesn’t see the old HBK but a man he humbled. He sees a man that will go into the Hall of Fame full of regrets and a career he ended. HBK isn’t happy about this and goes to superkick Taker but he catches his leg and Taker goes to choke slam him but HHH stops him and gets in between them. HHH then tells HBK to tell Taker why he’s going to beat Taker at Mania but HBK stands and stares at Taker instead. The crowd breaks into “one more match chant” while HBK just gets out of the ring and leaves while HHH yells at him. HBK just looks back at him and says “I’m sorry”. Triple H them looks sad face as Taker smirks at him and tips his hat to him before he bounces. This was a really good segment that this match needed desperately.


Holy fuck I’m already tired and we haven’t even gotten to the Rock yet!


Jack Swagger w/Michael Cole vs. Jerry “The King” Lawler

-Lawler has different music, it sucks.

-Lawler goes for Cole with give Swagger the opening to hit the splash in the corner.

-Swagger takes Lawler to the outside and throws him over the barricade.

-Lawler comes back out with a steel chair that he hits Swagger in the back multiple times for the DQ.

Winner: Jack Swagger


Lawler then goes after Cole but he goes into his cage. Lawler takes the chair to the cage and tries to jump over but Cole’s security hold him back. Lawler takes Cole’s face in the face before the security pull him away. Crazy how this is the hottest build up thus far for this ppv.


Vicki Guerrero comes out and puts on John Morrison’s glasses and gets his intro with pyro, music and slow mo! Haha Vicki then comes into the ring and delivers her signature line before saying she is going to do to Snooki the same thing she did to Morrison. She then laughs like the Million Dollar Man. Ziggler then comes out.


Dolph Ziggler w/Vicki & United States Champion Sheamus vs. Daniel Bryan & John Morrison

-Sheamus come out pounding on Morrison.

-Morrison goes for the flash kick but Sheamus catches him and hits the back breaker.

-After the break, Sheamus is covering Morrison for a 2.

-Morrison makes the hot take to Morrison who comes out hitting hard and gets the LaBell Lock on Ziggler until Sheamus breaks it up and makes the tag.

-Sheamus gets a 2 count on Bryan.

-Bryan misses the dropkick in the corner and gets hit with the high cross for the pin…

Winner: Sheamus & Ziggler


Well that was bullshit unless you’re having Bryan go over at WrestleMania. If not you just gave away that match.


Orton in the back icing his leg. New commentator dude asks if Orton will make it to WrestleMania. He says he has serious anger management issues and ruined careers because he could. He has never hated anyone more than CM Punk. He said his question should be if CM Punk will make it out of WrestleMania.


The final inductee for the Hall of Fame is THE ROAD WARRIORS AND PAUL ELLERING!


Trish Stratus and Snooki as some bar when Josh is asking them questions. Some dude tries to hit on them but she gets pushed aside. Snooki is drunk but says she is being trained by Trish. This dude wants to get out of here but this dude ends up getting smacked by Snooki the hard way. Josh puts over the match but then cuts back to this bar where LayCool now show but and the brawl is out which a bunch of duds egging them on.


We’re back from break and Rock is in the guerilla position. A “Rocky” chant build before he comes out to the ring to a big ol pop! (might have taken a little steam out of people by showing the Rock too early). Crowd keeps cheering and chanting “Rocky” but he finally gets to “Finally….” which the Chicago crowd eats up. He says this is where it all started for the Rock. This was where his first WrestleMania was and he admits to being nervous that night. He said that night he decided to bring it. He then goes on and on about Team Bring It but they eat it up and leads to another “Rocky” chant. He said he has a dream and it was to come to the ring and call out John Cena. “Cena sucks” chant! He calls Cena a homeless Power Ranger and Vanilla Ice while telling us how it went down on in his dream. Rock does his “millions…” and Chicago is heavily on his side. Smiley faced John Cena comes out and runs into the ring. Rock is eye fucking him while Cena just circles and keeps smiling. Cena is getting booed hardcore here, you can barely hear anything positive for this fucker tonight. Cena says this is what he wanted, Rock in a WWE ring. Cena says this is where Rock belongs, he then looks around and asks Rock if he hears the people. Cena brings up opening up his mouth about Rock leaving but he wanted him back for moments like this. Fool is now kissing Rock’s ass… Cena brings up being brought up like a celebrity roast and how that means you’re in. He says what he said had meaning and merit. Another “Cena sucks” chant. Cena says he wanted to know what problem the Rock had with him. Cena said his color he wears, how he was brought up and says hustle, loyalty, respect was crap and how his audience is kids. Cena admits it and says he’s proud of it but still gets booed. He then gets all serious about how he’s worked his tail to the bone and how the hell the Rock is?! He says he walks down to the ring as himself and some like it and some don’t but he doesn’t try to change their mind and he is going to be judged one day but not by the Rock. Rock then says that the good lord will judge him but wont save from getting his ass whooped. Cena says he’s talked to Rock like a man and if he wants a fight, Cena then drops the mic but then we get The Miz’s music. He and Riley come down to the ring all dressed up. Miz says really this is going to be, he calls them the O Brothers, overhyped and overrated. Haha Miz says last week he owned Cena and that he is going to lose at WrestleMania but says Cena will come for a fight not like the Rock. He calls him Rocky and says he knows a secret and that Rock isn’t going to do nothing tonight. Miz then brings up how much his moneys have made and how he isn’t going to risk getting beat up and embarrassed by him. He says he can do it because he is the WWE Champion and that Rock wont do anything because he is the Miz and he is awesome. Rock tells Miz it doesn’t matter what he thinks and Miz and Riley beat up on the Rock!!! Rock fights back and takes out Riley first! DDT by Rock on Miz!!!! THE PEOPLES ELBOW!!! He sends Miz to the outside and Cena is back in ATTITUDE ADUSTMENT TO THE ROCK!!! Huge boo’s from Chicago as Cena points to his purple wristband and bounces up the stage to point at the WrestleMania logo on the stage.


This was an AWESOME episode of RAW! Although there wasn’t a lot of matches it pushed the WrestleMania matches like it should. The Taker/HHH promo was solid with HBK being a nice touch and this last segment was perfect, yeah Rock didn’t get his on Cena but that is what they are going to make us pay for! It makes people want to order this show even more so because they know Cena isn’t getting away with this. Great go-home show and really brought home the fact that you MUST order WrestleMania 27!

… I am a little afraid that WrestleMania or the RAW after it will end with Cena and Rock all huggy kissy still…
