My two main gripes about WrestleMania:

1) What the fuck was that Battle Royal about? Big Show wins? Seriously? Also, heard Itami was treated like a goober? Bullshit all around.

2) Triple H wins? Really? And then they shake hands? Like, what the fuck?

#1 has a glimmer of hope from @alex:

I don't think I'll ever get a satisfactory answer for number 2.

Apparently Bray Wyatt at the least sprained his ankle prepping for tonight's match

So that should be fun

I'm posting this just because it's so crazy, but MetsFan is saying that Sheamus would be his replacement if he can't go.

It's probably the most popular LoC of the year, it's time to predict WRESTLEMANIA!

Here are your standings from after Fastlane:

1) papercut – 49
2) Elvicerator -46
3) DrX25, KirillOrlov, GorillaMoPena – 45
6) GunslingerPanda – 44
7) PDXSonic – 43
8) Corevi, RecSpec – 42
10) Lumley, DazzHardy, Brodehouse – 41

22) KoopaWithAGun – 36

43) Rabid619 – 23
44) WMoyer83 – 21

So here are the official rules:

  • You don't have to sign up, just make predictions and I'll add ya to the rankings.
  • Simply predict the answers to each question and, for every correct one, you get a point (unless stated otherwise); you don't lose anything for getting it wrong.
  • You do not have to bet on every match and you don't have to answer every question.
  • Whoever is in #1 after the PPV is allowed to have the Championship belt in their avatar.
  • If your prediction post is edited after the PPV, then you are disqualified for the event.
  • You must have your predictions in before the PPV/Pre-Show begins.
  • If the match ends in a draw (if Mark Henry suplexes The Big Show and the ring implodes, etc.), the prediction is cancelled and no points will be awarded/taken away.
  • Your final total (i.e. the one that will appear in the rankings) is the sum of all your PPV predictions subtracted by the lowest PPV prediction total. E.g. say I've done 3 PPVs (with scores of 30, 25 and 40), the score that would appear in the rankings is 30 + 40 = 70. If I were to participate in a fourth PPV (and I got a score of 20), then my new total would be 25 + 30 + 40 = 95.
  • The LoC committee has the right to change the rules if necessary.
  • Special Thanks to @EricSmith who is donating a year membership to Giant Bomb Premium to whoever has the best cumulative score throughout 2015.

@chance_s: You sure that's not Goldberg in an Austin vest?

#6 Edited by DrX25 (1640 posts) -

So, anyone else still can't stand Matt Striker on LU? I feel like he gets in the way of my enjoyment of the show.

Also, Grave Consequences was awesome.

#7 Posted by DrX25 (1640 posts) -

Really like Max Landis' stuff, so no surprise that I loved this.

Also, some of the cameos were fantastic.

@brodehouse: I mean a bunch of people still spray tan, although the worst was probably 2012 where The Miz left a giant spray tan spot in the middle of the ring during the Royal Rumble.

Also, I would say it's less lawsuits and more economy on wear and tear. It's easier on the body to not go out there and act like you're in a strong style match, especially when some of the guys work like 300 dates a year.

@hadoken101: Yeah, I get the feeling that they'll reveal the ad on Raw (Miz seems to have no clue what the ad even is about) and everyone will laugh at Miz for selling a dick pill.

@gorillamopena: You know, I think that's where Vomit Vision™ (when they zoom in and out on every single punch or kick) comes from. Also, while it has gotten clearer in general, it's also easier to spot it now than as a kid. I've gone back to old matches and can now clearly see blown spots and spot calling.
