Folks, I have a confession to make. I love me some wrestling. Yes,i know it’s fake. Yes i know it’s ridiculous. Yes I know it’s basically a roided up soap opera with ridiculous over the top characters. But what can I say, it’s one of my guilty pleasures. Especially now, with WrestleMania coming up this Sunday.
I watched WWE a lot when I was a wee lad. I was all over it in the late 90s during the end of my high school years. Then I took a break from it and while I knew of the main players like Stone Cole and The Rock. But I never begged my parents for the PPV. I never owned merch or anything like that. Recently, I started getting back into it. I got interested in the current storylines from all the bitching I read on Twitter about how the 2015 Royal Rumble ended. So from there I developed a liking for Roman Rains, the Rumble winner everyone hated. My logic was simple; If Twitter hated him, there is a good chance I would like him. So I started watching Raw after the Rumble, and eventually WrestleMania came around. I had also started watching Little Kuriboh’s Mark Remark show even before I started watching the actual wrestling product. You might know him as the YuGiOh Abridged guy, but he’s quite knowledgeable about the WWE and the squared circle in general and does a very funny recap show, although it’s dropped in frequency like his other products.
My point is that I like it. It’s like a live action shonen anime. Now I am psyched for WrestleMania. I know it’s been a tough year with all of the injuries to the top stars in the WWE. On top of that there have been a lot of questionable booking decisions by Creative. But I am holding out hope that there will be still be a couple of twists and turns with this year’s Mania. So that leads into the questions for this week.
1. Are you a fan of pro wrestling, be it WWE or others?
2. Are you planning to catch WrestleMania?
3. How have you felt about the booking decisions or how Vince is running the show? Do you have any optimism for the future?
Of course if wrestling isn’t your cup of tea...
then you might want to stay away from this guy.That said, feel free to talk about whatever you want. I hope everyone is having a great night, and i’ll see you in the comments.

Continuing the wrestling theme, tonight’s music is the ramp music for some of the superstars and diva’s taking part in WrestleMania matches.
HHH, “King Of Kings”
HHH, “The Game”
Roman Reigns, “The Truth Reigns”
The Undertaker, “Rest In Peace”
Shane McMahon “Here Comes The Money”
These two matches are the main events. Here is where I got these videos from, they have pretty much every Diva’s and Superstar’s music.
