Another Attempt at a MARCH Wrestling Thread

Recommended Posts

Shane McMahon trains with Renzo Gracie for grappling, and Phil Nurse for striking. Just imagine how bad he'd be if he didn't do that.

Based on tweets - it appears that Finn Balor is returning to the ring tonight at the Buffalo House Show

We can have him do a March Madness run in so Miz can beat him too.

Fozzy's touring schedule has been released and they have dates all through May

So to the surprise of no one - Chris Jericho's run will be ending shortly after Mania (though he is expected back later in the summer - he is being advertised for June WWE shows still)

From what I've heard Jericho is scheduled up until Payback on April 30th. My theory is, Owens and Jericho will headline Payback in a Wrestlemania rematch, Owens pins Jericho and Jericho leaves. That or they run Owens and Joe vs Zayn and Jericho in the Main Event and they give them 25-30 minutes.

With how bloated the Mania card is already, I'd be surprised if KO/Jericho got more than 10 minutes and a real finish. Or it could just be one of those inexplicable Jericho clean wins at a big show.

Either way, a gimmick blowoff that gets a lot of time at Payback is where that's headed.

Honestly, I'd prefer they run that HHH/Owens/Joe v Zayn/Jericho/(Rollins or Balor) match as a PPV main event if we need to survive without the Universal belt for a few months. Of course I realize that they likely cut Zayn in this scenario and run with Rollins/Jericho/Balor. The Powers That Be clearly like Sami, but not more than any of those other three.

And yes, I'm well aware how many of you never want to see Hunter and Rollins ever again in your entire lives. 

Still, hopefully they use the need to write Jericho out as an opportunity to put some shine back on the apron powerbomb.

HHH/Owens/Joe/Strowman vs Jericho/Zayn/Balor/Reigns as the main event with a co-main of BayLay vs Sasha for the Raw Women's Championship at Payback in San Jose (BayLay's hometown) would be a solid show.

If that show's in San Jose, it's a good opportunity to give the women another main event since Brock won't be around. Jericho/Owens could be a super-long 3 stages of hell or something in the middle of the show a la HHH/Austin.

Maybe he's a killer in a real fight but his worked punches look like he is fighting someone with a 6 inch thick force field surrounding them.

He would be way better off training with Bob Backlund for grappling and Terry Funk for striking, if you know what I mean. (Jerry Lawler also acceptable in the striking category).

I dunno, I remember Mick Foley talking about how good Funk's punches were and he was so excited to wrestle him and find out the secret and being dismayed when Funk just punched him full-force in the foreahead.  Afterwards, Foley was talking to Funk and said how he was so disappointed that he had just punched him and Funk replied "Oh Cactus, all this time you just thought I was really good!"  So I'm not sure what Funk could teach Shane that would be of much help; telling an largely untrained wrestler to just punch someone for real seems like a real dangerous move.

I hear you, but I doubt Phil Nurse is teaching him about anything other than punching someone square in the face either, and that doesn't seem to help

You ever see some of the workout videos he posts Instagram with Maryse? Even if he had his dad's amazing mullet, he'll never have his dad's body.

It's not particularly good or bad, but they are a super fun live show

Usually when Kerrang reviews Fozzy, the records get two K's out of five, but the live shows get 4 or 5 K's.

I guess you can consider last night as another example of how little the WWE thinks of putting random live shows on the Network

Brock, Triple H and Finn Balor returning on the Buffalo show and they couldn't be bothered to through up a couple of cameras and make it a Network special on a random Friday night.

The reason for John Cena's post WrestleMania departure from WWE is because he will be in a starring role in the movie, Daddy's Home 2.

In the original, Cena had a cameo in the final minute playing the ex-husband of the wife of the character played by Mark Wahlberg. Deadline reported this morning that the movie will start filming in Boston with Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Mel Gibson, John Lithgow, and Linda Cardellini starring along with Cena.

The movie is more about how the characters played by Ferrell and Wahlberg, who were at odds in the first movie, are now best friends working together to raise Walhberg's daughter while Ferrell is married to Wahlberg's ex-wife. The other daughter that Wahlberg is raising, his own stepdaughter, is Cena's.

Cena is scheduled to work through WrestleMania and then has extended time off.

Cena has had an increased presence in Hollywood and pop culture over the last year, hosting Saturday Night Live, hosting the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards this weekend, and appearing in comedies like Trainwreck and Sisters.

You still read Kerrang? At least take a step up to Terrorizer.

Evil pinning Tanahashi in the 1st round of the New Japan Cup continues the sliding down the card of the former Ace and the movement up for a younger talent.
