Wrestlemania 29 Predictions

Wrestlemania is This Sunday at Metlife Stadium in New Jersey. An estimated crowed of 80,000+ is expected to be on hand. Here is a list of the matches scheduled to take place: (as always, card is subject to change)

No. Match Stipulations
Pre-show Wade Barrett (c) vs. The Miz Singles match for the Intercontinental Championship
1 The Rock (c) vs. John Cena Singles match for the WWE Championship
2 Alberto Del Rio (w/ Ricardo Rodriguez) (c) vs. Jack Swagger (w/ Zeb Colter) Singles match for the World Heavyweight Championship
3 The Undertaker vs. CM Punk (w/ Paul Heyman) Singles match
4 Sheamus, Randy Orton & Big Show vs. The Shield (Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns) Six-man tag team match
5 Ryback vs. Mark Henry Singles match
6 Team Hell No (Kane and Daniel Bryan) (c) vs. Dolph Ziggler and Big E Langston (w/ AJ Lee) Tag team match for the WWE Tag Team Championship
7 Brock Lesnar (w/ Paul Heyman) vs. Triple H (w/ Shawn Michaels) No Holds Barred match; if Triple H loses, he must retire.
8 Chris Jericho vs. Fandango Singles match
9 Tons of Funk (Brodus Clay & Tensai) and The Funkadactyls (Cameron and Naomi) vs. Team Rhodes Scholars (Cody Rhodes & Damien Sandow) and The Bella Twins (Brie and Nikki Bella) Eight–person mixed tag team match
(c) – refers to the champion heading into the match

Here is how I expect to see these matches go down.

  1. The Miz beats Wade Barret and takes the IC Belt. (Result: The Miz wins with the Figure Four Leg Lock)
  2. Rock beats Cena. (Then drops the belt, possibly at Extreme Rules) (Result: Cena Wins)
  3. Del Rio holds on to the World Title over Swagger, but Dolph Ziggler cashes in his Money in the Bank and defeats Del Rio. (Result: Del Rio Wins. No Ziggler)
  4. CM Punk will defeat The Undertaker and end the iconic 20-0 streak, most likely ending career of The Undertaker. (Result: Undertaker Wins 21-0)
  5. Sheamus, Orton and Big Show, defeat The Shield. (Result: Shield Wins)
  6. I’m still unsure how the Ryback vs. Mark Henry match will go.. I kinda have a feeling it may be a squash match and only last mere minutes. My best guess though, Ryback loses to Mark Henry. (Result: Mark Henry Wins)
  7. Team Hell No will retain the belts against Dolph and Big E. (Result: Team Hell No Retains)
  8. I’ve always been a Triple H fan, so I’m a little biased. But I have two sides here, I want to see Triple H defeat Brock, however seeing as Triple H is now a corporate guy, I know Brock will beat Triple H and that will end his in ring career making way for his Corporate career. (Result: TripleH Wins)
  9. Jericho will defeat Fandango. (Result: Fandango wins)
  10. Tons of Funk will lose to Team Rhodes Scholars. (At least I hope they do. the gimmick they gave Tensai is retarded. Both Brodus Clay and Tensai were orignally billed as big monsters who could destroy anything are now, dancing idiots.. ) (THIS MATCH WAS SCRATCHED!!!!!)

I will be doing my best to live blog Wrestlemania 29 this Sunday. It starts at 7PM EST / 4PM PST

Wrestling and Drugs.

So, on the heels of Jack Swagger being pulled over after a Smackdown taping in Mississippi, and being charged with DUI, speeding and possession of marijuana, a lot of people are talking about the punishment for Jack Swagger (Jacob Hager, Jr.).

Now, Per the WWE Abuse Policy, (Here) it says in section 15b that a positive test for marijuana carries a $2500 fine, which is pretty minimal as a punishment. However, what really brings up a questions is section 14.


Any WWE Talent, who is arrested, convicted or who admits to a violation of law relating to use, possession, purchase, sale or distribution of drugs will be in material breach of his/her contract with WWE and subject to immediate dismissal.

In addition to the penalties that may be imposed pursuant to his/her contract with WWE, a violation of this Section 14 may also be treated as a positive test for drugs prohibited by this Policy and therefore, subject to the penalties set forth in Section 15 of this Policy.

So, if WWE decides to uphold this part of the policy, Swagger could be done. But fining them $2500 dollars when they mess up, is pretty minimal, considering most of them make a lot of money. The punishment should be closer to $10,000, that way, if they think about doing anything stupid, it will be on their mind they have to pay a hefty fine if that get into trouble.

Jack Swagger isn’t the first guy to be in trouble for this. Here is a lost of guys who have been tagged for substance abuse.

  • Chavo Guerrero – 2 strikes (Now working for TNA)
  • Drew Hankinson, a/k/a Festus – 1 strike (now works for TNA)
  • Randy Orton – 2 strikes
  • Darren Matthews, a/k/a William Regal – 2 strikes
  • Charlie Haas – 1 strike (Works for ROH now)
  • Nick Nemeth, a/k/a Dolph Ziggler – 1 strike
  • Adam Copeland, a/k/a Edge – 1 strike (Retired)
  • Jeff Hardy – 2 strikes (Works for TNA now. had a major drug bust right after leaving WWE)
  • James Yun, a/k/a Jimmy Wang Yang – 1 strike (Works for TNA now)
  • John Hennigan, a/k/a John Morrison – 1 strike (Works the independents)
  • Shoichi Funaki, a/k/a Kung Fu Naki – 1 strike (No longer works for WWE)
  • Harry Smith, a/k/a David Hart Smith – 1 strike (No longer with WWE)
  • Gregory Helms – 1 strike (No longer with WWE)
  • Ryan Reeves, a/k/a Ryback – 1 strike
  • Oscar Gutierrez Rubio a/k/a Rey Mysterio – 2 strikes

WWE never releases the reason for suspension, but normally, a strike and suspension is given for steroids or some other performance enhancing drug. Marijuana and Alcohol both carry a $2500 fine, but no suspension or other punishment.


Portland Wrestling Uncut – Jan 8th

On January 8th, 2013 Portland Wrestling Uncut held a live show. My wife and I attended the show. It was a really good show, here are a few pictures I got with some of the wrestlers. I unfortunately didn’t keep track of all the matches, however The Blanchard’s faced Exile and Wade Hess, Their manager the Grappler used a boot to hit Bubba Blanchard and Wade Hess got the pin-fall but the referee caught wind of the boot incident and reversed his decision. STILL THE CHAMPS!
