That was from WrestleMania X, a pretty good match from what I recall.

As for the PPV, thought it was kinda meh, the CM Punk/Rey match was ok, the cage match was a letdown for the most part, the middle rope Codebreaker was cool. Kind of shocked that Swagger got the pin on Orton.

This whole PG/No blood/No chair shots to the head crap is ridiculous, they should make some exceptions when it comes to PPV, especially one titled "Extreme Rules."

To be fair they did have a really good Trash Can shot to the head in the Orton/Swagger match.

Really? I didn't see it, but the recap made the finish sound creative, if nothing else.

It made Batista look even more stupid because he reached back to rip the tape off and actually got a hold on it and had to push it back down to make it look like he couldn't reach it when he actually could. it was just a really bad ending but it did make Bastista still look strong because he survived everything SuperCena threw at him and only got defeated by duct tape.

To be fair about the duct tape ending, the PPV ran very late. According to my watch, the final bell rang at 10:57 PM. It wouldn't surprise me if the whole ending was rushed.

Re: WWE/TNA April Wrestling Thread: Lockdown & Extreme Rules

So much for WWE being PG:

SPOILER: NEW WWE COMIC BOOK ANYTHING BUT PG AS TWO MAJOR NAMES ARE 'KILLED'
By Mike Johnson on 2010-04-26 16:23:11
The new issue of the WWE Heroes comic book from Titan Publishing is pretty unique and interesting in that the series had taken an adult tone, in fact, a tone that really flies in the face of the company's current PG guidelines.

The second issue of the series, features a terrorist group taking over Wrestlemania
, murdering BOTH Triple H and Chris Jericho in the process. Yes, murdering both.

In the issue, a match between The Undertaker and Triple H is interrupted after terrorists take over the arena holding the event. The WWE stars are corralled into the ring and everyone is warned the building is wired to blow should they not acquiesce to the group's wishes.

Chris Jericho attempts to mouth off and get involved, but is overcome and dragged backstage kicking and screaming for someone to help him. When the screaming suddenly stops, everyone in the ring looks forelorn and one of the villain reemerges to comment, "It is done."

The terrorists then force Triple H and Undertaker to continue their battle, with the two agreeing that whichever of them ends up on top will then try and take out the lead terrorist. Triple H ends up knocking out Taker and attempts to grab the leader, but is shot with a mystical weapon and collapses.

In fact, the last panel of the comic features Kelly Kelly declaring, "Oh God No...Triple H is dead!"

It's being reported that Batista will not be leaving immediately and will stick around through the next PPV.

I'm confused? Why exactly is Flair's nose bleeding at the very start of the show?

What's worse? The fact that they only have like two tag teams, or the fact that they have four tag belts?

I don't mind that so much since the Hart Dynasty are certainly talented enough to be credible champs. The WWE writers must assume everyone has a short attention span anyway since its all too common for someone to go from jobber to champ or at least contender in less than a month (like Jack Swagger, for instance...actually he's gone back and forth a couple times).

The Hart Dynasty finally gets the tag belts. Very happy about that.

Kingston to SD. Good move IMO. He's been buried on RAW and if there's any chance to rehabilitate his character it would be on SD.

How did TNA get the rights to Hulk American Made theme, the nWo theme and the WolfPac theme? Wouldn't WWE own all of those

Solid impact, building a couple new feuds. Nothing special, but I'd exact that going against the draft.

I think Jimmy Hart owns all of them. That's why those themes have not been included in any WWE CD.

Steve Austin's tweet:

Flair with the brassnucks to the balls...truly the dirtiest player in the game...still. Hogan to the ring...time to change the channel.

Lawler is such a knob and a prissy little bitch when he gets called out for being wrong.
