WWE PPVs are thirty years old this year. WrestleMania I was not the first (it aired on closed-circuit in theaters), rather Wrestling Classic was. In those thirty years, WWE has provided fans with countless moments from numerous historical events.
You can't imagine my delight when I went into my local GamStop and purchased WWE 2K15 for the XBOX One. It was like Christmas Day for me. I had little John Cena's dancing around in my head, and thought of laying the SmackDown on Rusev or Sheamus in a Hell in a Cell match.
I have been a fan of Paul Heyman ever since I first saw him back in the NWA in 1989 in the famous “Midnight Express vs. Midnight Express” feud, which involved him bringing back Dennis Condrey and Randy Rose to take back the Midnight Express name from the guys who made it famous, Bobby Eaton and Stan Lane.
Superstar Billy Graham has been highly critical of the WWE in recent years, so it probably won't shock anyone that he wasn't a fan of WrestleMania. He's been ranting about it on Facebook for over a week and like a car crash, I just can't look away.
Over 60,000 fans stood on their feet in San Francisco while hundreds of thousands watched at home as Seth Rollins won the WWE world championship. It is only fair to applaud the WWE for getting this one right and giving the right guy the right ball at the right time.
In what can only be described as the best thing to happen to the WWE since the Mr. McMahon character was created, Brock Lesnar took it upon himself to inflict punishment on the company in the only way he knows how – he destroyed those who got in his way.
In honor of WrestleMania 31, we put together an awesome podcast plus feedback from some of our best friends. Enjoy the madness.
The post The Definitive Commentary On Why WrestleMania 31 Was An All-Time Great appeared first on The Sports Fan Journal.
Wrestlemania has come and gone and I have to admit that this was one of the best Wrestlemanias within the past decade. There was a lot of action, mostly good bookings, and throwing in a preview of Wrestlemania 32.
I never saw it coming. One of the best WrestleMania events wrestling fans have ever been witness to took place last night. After the worry of a less than stellar showing by some of the participants on the card, this one will go down as not only one of the greatest ever planned, but maybe the most surprising ever to take place.
Roman Reigns joined me via Skype for a fun interview just days before he steps in the ring at WrestleMania 31 against Brock Lesnar for the WWE world championship. Roman was candid and insightful as we talked about his upcoming match as well as various other topics.
The four horsemen of Fight Booth have revealed their picks for this years “Showcase of the Immortals” on Sunday night. See who Addie, Rose, Skoyles and Reno have leaving Silicon Valley with their hand raised below.

"It’s one of those things, it does a little bit. I am not going to lie. I care a lot about what I do, I have a deep passion for wrestling, sports entertainment, and just performing in front of a live crowd in general. So obviously you want things to be positive and support you but at the same time I really firmly believe that the fans, they have a choice, they pay their hard-earned...
If Roman wins, we riot. Have you seen that sign yet? Don’t worry, you will. WrestleMania is right around the corner and you can be sure that sign will be somewhere among the massive crowd in attendance. Well, unless WWE takes it away. They will probably take it away.
Vince McMahon got his man! WWE world champion Brock Lesnar has signed a new deal with the WWE which will keep him around after WrestleMania. The new deal has also shut down any chance we’ll see Brock in the UFC ever again.
Brock Lesnar visited with SportsNation’s Michelle Beadle to announce that he will be re-signing with WWE which squashes any rumors of the former UFC champion returning to the mixed martial arts promotion. WWE Chief Executive Officer Triple H confirmed the news on twitter just moments ago.
.@BrockLesnar is a global attraction. Happy to have him re-sign a multi-year contract...
Brock Lesnar is a lucky man! The WWE world champion is about to become combat sports' hottest free agent. Vince McMahon is up against the clock as he hopes to mitigate a potential public relations disaster.
As we head into WrestleMania, I finally came to the conclusion why my interest in the main event is at an all-time low. While many people share my feelings, I can honestly say that I can’t blame Roman Reigns, the guy has been put into a universally bad position.
WWE World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar was not in Des Moines, Iowa for Monday Night RAW tonight. When you cut a venomous promo like this, there is no need. Similar to his hype packages ahead of his SummerSlam match with John Cena, Lesnar has proven to us that he doesn’t need Paul Heyman when he’s put in front of a video camera outside of the ring.
In the following promo...
Some are calling Roman Reigns the least over WWE superstar to headline a WrestleMania. That is high praise considering it wasn’t even five years ago that Miz was headlining. Where did it all go wrong for the former member of the Shield?
The rumors are only getting hotter as we get closer to WrestleMania 31. WWE news continues to leak out of Stamford, CT and rather than focus on one story I thought it would be interesting to take a look at a few headlines that are buzzing on the Internet.
Last week, Brock Lesnar reportedly walked out of RAW after a “heated dispute” with Vince McMahon. The Beast’s next move was an appearance at UFC 184 in a dapper suit, exchanging pleasantries with Dana White. The result, of course, is a grumpy Vinny Mac. On the surface, this appears to be a disaster of catastrophic proportions. Approaching their biggest show of the year, WWE...
Brock Lesnar is making the rounds. The WWE champion was show sitting ringside at UFC 184 on Saturday night. The appearance comes just days after Lesnar walked out of RAW leaving many wondering if the WrestleMania 31 main-event is in jeopardy.
Either Brock Lesnar is planning to return to the UFC, or he is simply using the prospect of reviving his mixed martial arts career as leverage in contract discussions with the WWE. Lesnar has just over a month remaining on his deal with the WWE. He was scheduled to appear on Monday Night Raw this...Read More
The big news coming out of Monday Night RAW was not a dull kickoff to WrestleMania. The big story was Brock Lesnar and where he was. Lesnar walked out of RAW and a new report indicates that there could be trouble in paradise.
There may be no bigger topic right now in pro wrestling than the future of Brock Lesnar. The WWE champion is coming to a cross-roads and the rumors continue to swirl about his post-Mania plans. A new report paints a picture that wrestling fans can get excited about.
