There is practically no wrestling I'm looking forward to on that card, but I would be lying if I said I wasn't very curious to see how HHH/Taker and Cena/Miz plays out.

Hopefully, Brian/Shaemus, Rey/Cody, and Punk/Orton can surprise me, and deliver high quality matches, to go along with the storyline heavy stuff.

Marty Jannetty, who rose to fame as the tag team partner of Shawn Michaels, was asked if he would be attending his former colleague's WWE Hall of Fame induction on Saturday in Atlanta, Georgia.

He responded, "I want to be there but the cab ride from where I am is over 22 dollars and 23 cents, give or stank a dolla."

My WrestleMania party has completely fallen through - anyone know of a sportsbar in Toronto that's showing Mania? The streak is in jeopardy!

Not Takers streak - my streak. 26 straight WMs seen live.

Can't find any bar that is showing it up here. I guess since they shut down all the pirate dishes the bars aren't willing to pony up the public exhibition fee.

WWE.com shows no "Blast Areas" for Canada - though a couple of theatres are showing it. Kind of my last resort as they are asking $31.50 a head to get in. I'd rather spend that on beer/nachos/wings.

Yeah, they've built up interesting storylines while putting together kinda bland matches. I'm looking forward to what the Rock will do in the WWE title match as opposed to the actual match itself. Punk/Orton could be interesting if Punk carries most of the match otherwise it's a snoozer.

I've heard great things about Punk's in ring work prior to his WWE career, but I've never found him to be all that compelling in the WWE workrate wise. He's good, no doubt, but he's not a guy who's matches I get excited for in and of themselves. It's his talking that elevates his matches. For my money, he and Orton are on the same work-rate level in WWE. I can't speak on his ROH stuff, cause I haven't seen it.

There are ways to watch it free online, but I can't give you any links here

Thanks anyway, man. I tried streaming once and with both the horrible up/down quality of the stream, combined with the days of having to go through my OS with a lice comb to remove all the spyware/viruses, I'm kind of shy on ever trying it again.

Re: WWE/TNA/ROH April Wrestling Thread: Wrestlemania XXVII/ Lockdown

Sting tells FT he was approached and offered a match with Undertaker, and a place in the Hall of Fame but he turned it down.

“I wouldn’t say it was utter nonsense, that’s not true!” laughs TNA’s champ. “It’s a dream match that fans would want to see. It was close. I’m glad things turned out the way they did.

“There are so many variables. Let’s just say that I turned it down for the same reasons I always have. Some- thing in me never trusted what would happen up there, based entirely on the track record with other WCW guys and everything that went on after Vince bought WCW.

“I wont be watching but I’ll be asking what happened between Under- taker and Triple H.”

So he'd rather fumble around with a stoned Jeff Hardy over a main event at Wrestlemania?

I don't think she looks anywhere near as good as she did a few years back. The new dark hair and thin body doesn't fit her that well. I miss the small but wide butt with blonde hair.

I personally think he's always been sour about Vince not going after him hard in the late 80s/early 90s, but who knows. I actually felt bad for the situation he is in while watching TNA last night.

The guy's a class act though so he wouldn't bash TNA, while they are obviously down, even if he felt bad about the current situation there.

I'll take her off your hands then ... lol.

I will say this ... in the past, the return of Trish Stratus in WWE would be a huge thing. But this time around, it's pretty much an afterthought. She must be getting a huge payday or she's a really huge JERSEY SHORE fan to have been roped into that Snooki mess.

Watching the ROH iPPV from the Center Stage Theatre in Atlanta and having flashbacks to the old WCW Saturday Night shows.

I'm sure Sting made the right choice given how he had a 5* match with drugged up meth addict who could barely walk to the ring...good job Sting! I guess he still thinks it's 2001.

I know Wing House is showing it (Mania) locally in this area. I might be taking it in at that place. I don't have a streak or anything of that nature going, but it's the only wrestling PPV I really try to watch each year.
