Shawn Michaels vs The Undertaker - Wrestlemania 25

This is one interesting rumor. It seems that the heartbreak kid, Shawn Michaels, is trying to convince people to have an Undertaker vs Shawn Michaels match at Wrestlemania. In this case Shawn will surely lose but the pay day would be huge for both wrestlers. It seems that many wrestling fans are eager to see something like this. We are talking about Mr Wrestlemania going against the one man that has never been defeated at this incredible event. Although such a match would be simply incredible and surely both men would do a great job, it is a feud that should be built in time. If this one is too fast then it will not be special at all. I do hope that (if the match happens) the Shawn vs Undertaker match would be planned properly.

WWE Wrestlers Workout

This here is a very interesting video that shows some wrestlers training. All are from the WWE but you will enjoy looking at the clip. You can see a lot of Triple H working out in the gym, Randy Orton in the gym, John Cena training, Shawn Michaels working on his abs and doing some unique exercises. Most of the video shows Triple H working out but hey, we have a lot to see in Hunter, or Paul, or however you want to call this man. Triple H's workout is always intense and that is reality. In fact, all good professional wrestlers have very hard workouts and we should all respect that.

Holiday Wishes Granted

I just recently got to find out about the Got a Wish Sweeepstakes. I must say that I am not really into the holiday spirit but this here web site really made me smile. You get to sit on Santa's lap, upload a picture of yourself and remember what it was like to be a child and really want something from Santa. Although at first view you might think that we are talking about a simple sweepstakes, it is not really like that. We are talking about a great animation and movie. I basically uploaded a picture of me that I took at a recent party and I also put in a wish. I did not wish for anything professional wrestling related as you might think. All I wished for is one thing that I really want and it is difficult to have. It is not a thing, it is a person. I am not really sentimental but I must say that I felt quite warm inside when the Santa in the movie said that I was going to get it because I was not naughty. I seriously advise you to take 5 minutes of your busy schedule and visit this site. Remember why you were happy about Santa and you can even consider buying the special photo frame that is sold. In any case, you can at least participate in the sweepstake.

Smackdown vs Raw 2009

I just started playing Smackdown vs Raw 2009 and spent the entire day doing just that. I must say that I am quite disappointed. The game does look very good but the camera is simply awful if you go out of the ring. As far as I played it, one essential fact that was very nice in the past was taken out. In Career mode there are no storylines. You just go on a pat to win all the titles possible and that is about it. You build your wrestler and he grows based on how you wrestle. This feature was pretty cool. Even the special abilities are intersting as you also get them on how you perform. There is also no manager mode. Although the one from last year was not as different than in the year before, it was still fun and entertaining.

Smackdown Vs Raw 2009 does have one extra feature that was very very cool. I am talking about the Create a Finisher mode. I was basically able to create a lot of nice looking finishers, even the ones I use in The Wrestling Game. This is where THQ really nailed it nicely. I can also give a thumbs up to the Road to Wrestlemania mode. It was also very entertaining. Too bad there are only a few wrestlers to choose from.

On the whole Smackdown vs Raw 2009 is not bad but there are things that were taken out that should have been let in. This fact does draw away from the new features put in.

Termite Problems

Termite problems are really difficult to handle. We are talking about critters that are nastier than seeing Big Show naked. The good news is that there is one web site that will give you all the information you need in order to get rid of termite attacks. Learn all that should be known about them and do not hesitate to get rid of those pesky insects. You will also be able to find products that are really helpful in removing termites and I am sure that the info you find will be more than useful.

Is Vince McMahon Killing WWE?

Lately we had a lot of reports that are anti the WWE chairman. It seems that a lot of people are currently fed up and think that he is crazy. First on the list stands the WWE creative team. People that work there are being humiliated and inside sources have said that people are afraid when they have ideas because Vince starts yelling and humiliates them in front of co-workers. The general feeling backstage is that Vince McMahon has completely lost the touch with the WWE fans and this basically means that he does not know what he is doing. People started saying that he has to step down and let Triple H take care of the wrestling side of the business as he is much more in touch with the fans and properly understands what they want.

In the past we have been told that Vince McMahon keeps yelling in the headsets of the commentators and they end up cracking. Mick Foley did declare that this was one of the reasons why he left and other commentators also had problems with what was labeled by wrestling fans as "Vince's Headphones of Death".

The latest interesting fact about Vince McMahon is the fact that he held Chris Jericho responsible for RAW's rating drops. It seems that the chairman thinks that the wrestler did not play the character right because he insulted fans too much. According to Vince, Jericho had to be a complainer and whiner but not someone that would eventually take it out on the fans. It seems that this is exactly why Jericho lost the title in front of Batista. We heard that the original WWE plans were to see Chris as the champ till the end of December. In fact, that was the one wrestling match at Cyber Sunday that people did not expect to see end like that.

I would personally love to see Vince McMahon step down!

Scandal over John Cena's Entrance Theme

Now this is funny. It seems that M.O.P. is suing the WWE over John Cena's entrance theme. This is because their song, "Ante Up" features the same "BRRR Abado!" line as the wrestler's theme. It looks like the law suit asks for 150 thousand dollars and the destruction of the entrance theme. In the original song that part only appears once at the beginning and in Cena's song 3 times. As far as some people are saying, the official WWE music CDs do mention the featuring sample from M.O.P. but according to the band they did not sign the rights to the sample and the WWE actually found somebody else to sign, somebody that has no authority. It is funny to see the Cena haters and Cena lovers going at it. Well, you should know that you can suit over 2 seconds because it is the voice of the rappers. Now the law suit is on and they will surely settle it behind the scenes. Simple! Why the big fuss? In any case, let us listen to some music. Here is M.O.P.'s Ante Up:

And now John Cena's Time is Now:

Cyber Sunday 2008 - Triple H vs Jeff Hardy

OK, so this was a huge surprise and you have to wonder why this match happened. We already saw Triple H vs Jeff Hardy at No Mercy. That wrestling match was pretty good and this one was sure to be special as well although a triple threat match could have been more spectacular. We could have had the same entertainment with a plus of more moves seeing Kozlov. But, whether or not the votes were rigged will never be found out. Now we were in front of a match that saw too very popular wrestlers. The match before was great and this one needed to be better in order to be justified. In many aspects it was! The start was a little boring although fans that love technical wrestling will surely have loved it. What I loved was the fact that Jeff Hardy hit Triple H with two consecutive Whisper in the Winds. The same went for two attempts of the Swanton Bomb but only one connected and the second one met The Game's knees. Then Jeff went for the third one and it was reversed into a pedigree. Triple H retains the title and on the whole it was a really interesting match. I almost thought that the title was going to change hands but my pick for the match, Triple H, did win it.
