The Streak Ends?! NOOOOO!!!!

And more on Wrestling News…

I just found out that The Undertaker’s Wrestlemania Streak has ended… it’s now… 21-1…

WHY?!?!?!?!

I don’t understand WHY!?!?! WHY DID IT HAVE TO END?!

And I just found it here on the InterNet too! I had to scour the InterNet about how Taker lost instead watching it on my freakin’ cable because I didn’t know the schedule of WWE in my cable!

AND WHY DID IT HAVE TO BE FRICKIN’ BROCK LESNAR?!

I’m sorry… I’m sorry… I know it’s a scripted sport, and I know that The Undertaker was getting old and all those years are starting to take a toll on his body. I mean, that’s almost 20+ years of wrestling, man! Of course, there’s going to be a time that he’ll retire and settle down somewhere warm and sunny and just be Mark Callaway. I, for one, as a Taker fan, want him to retire soon and enjoy life pain free from all those injuries and surgeries and what not he got from all his years in the ring.

I just don’t understand why it had to be Brock Lesnar!

I mean seriously?! Can’t you just let the guy win and retire with him still holding the belt? Dude, the man gave you the WWF/WWE the best damn concepts when it came to matches. I mean, he was the one who INVENTED Hell in a Cell, Buried Alive and the frickin’ Casket Match!

AND YOU HAVEN’T EVEN INDUCTED HIM TO THE WWE HALL OF FAME YET!

AND THEN YOU MADE HIM LOSE TO BROCK LESNAR?!

I mean seriously…. Wrestling Fans, enlighten me on this. Taker and The Streak is part of my childhood, just like Warrior. How can it just END that way?

Ugh…..! CAN SOMEBODY JUST EXPLAIN IT TO ME?! >_< First, Warrior died… and now The Streak ended… my childhood is slowly crumbling to pieces…. >_<

R.I.P. The Ultimate Warrior

A huge part of my childhood has died, and it seriously, SERIOUSLY saddens me.

I know I cried about Eddie Guerrero’s death, but this…

So, for those who don’t know, I am a HUGE wrestling fan, and the three people responsible who made me love the sport is, of course, Hulk Hogan, The Undertaker and The Ultimate Warrior.

And just this April 8, 2014, The Ultimate Warrior died of unknown reasons, just a few days after his Induction to the WWE Hall of Fame.

And… it breaks my heart. He was only 54…

Warrior is a very important part of my childhood. A lot of my happiest memories of my youth was because of him. To me, he was the most physically intimidating wrestlers in the WWF (even more so than The Undertakers) and his energy was very contagious that I would shout during his matches. Because we were so young and we didn’t know that everything was ‘scripted’, we would even shout out to Warrior to stand up when he gets knocked down. I can still remember how my mother and my two siblings would sleep late at night even at a school night just to watch him on the TV. I would often to struggle awake just to watch him and Hogan.

I also remember how my brother would try to flex his muscles and roar like Warrior even though he was so skinny. Or how he would grasp the sampayan (clothesline) and shake it when my mother was doing laundry (which pissed off my mother greatly).

When I was around 6 or 7, after watching WWF, the three of us would often wrestle in my mother’s bedroom during weekends. My brother was the Ultimate Warrior, I was Jake “the Snake” Roberts (complete with blanket snake XD) and my sister was Hogan. My sister was a bit of a wimp though, and she would end up crying because my brother would accidentally hurt her.

My brother’s notebooks were full of Warrior’s insignia using various ball pens or highlighters he used in schools. I also used my mother’s make up to paint his insignia in my face, too… which earned me a really nasty scolding and smacking from my mother.

Whew… good times.

Warrior reminded me of the greatest times of my life… when my family was still happy, and silly, and energetic. It was a time when life was so simple… we studied and played, small hurts and anger could be soothed by ‘sorrys’, laughter dominated the days, and wrestling bonded the three of us…

And now…

Anyway… I offer my sincerest condolences to Warrior’s family… to his wife and children… his friends and relatives… and to fans as well. Though he might be gone, as a fan of his, I will always be reminded of his greatness, and I am proud that I existed during the time of such a wrestling legend.

Rest In Peace, Warrior… I hope you shake some ropes up there.

R.I.P. Paul Bearer

Paul-Bearer

As a wrestling fan, this news saddens me greatly.

William Moody, AKA Paul Bearer, former manager of The Undertaker and WWE Legend, has died yesterday. He was 58 years old.

This makes me really sad because Paul Bearer and the Undertaker were such memorable people in my youth. It was because of them (and Ultimate Warrior) that I became such a fan of the sport. Even though he freaked me out with his pale complexion and high voice.

He retired from the ring during 2002, but had a few visiting spells on WWE, which included Undertaker’s return from a long hiatus.

Hmm… I wonder how Undertaker is taking all of this… since he was such a good friend and manager. I hope he is doing okay.

My thoughts and condolences go to all those who mourn this great wrestling legend. I just hope that he gets inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. One of the main reasons Undertaker is in this business is because of him as well.

*And maybe they should induct Undertaker as well. Seriously, WWE people, you shouldn’t wait until a person dies before you induct him to the WWE*

R.I.P. Paul Bearer

R.I.P. Randy “Macho Man” Savage

Randall Mario Poffo, known as Randy “Macho Man” Savage in the WWF/WWE universe has died last May 20, 2011.

Local policemen and roadside assistance club members said that Mr. Poffo was driving when he suffered a heart attack, which led him to lose control of his vehicle and hit a tree. His second wife, Lynn Payne, which he married just last year, was also in the car, but she suffered only minor injuries.

Randy Savage was one of the WWF Superstars that became embedded in my mind ever since I was young. My Brother, Kharlo, used to to imitate him as a child along with Ultimate Warrior. We would sit around in front of the TV just to watch them, afterwards my brother would try and get on top of mother’s headboard (or top rope as he called it XD) and jump down on us…. which obviously, led me to cry. XD

Sometimes, the WWF would show their matches so late at night that it was scheduled after my bed time, but my brother would still watch. I’d struggle to keep my eyes open just to see them, so I wouldn’t fall asleep. But I end up falling asleep anyway. ~_~

He had a lot of rivalry matches with Hulk Hogan. Watching them were great. We always thought that it was real life when the two of them are in the ring. They brawl like it’s not scripted…

Anyway, as a wrestling fan, you will surely be missed, Randy Savage. You will always be a Macho Man in the hearts of the wrestling community…

Eddie Guerrero’s 5th Year Death Anniversary

I just realized…

It’s been 5 years since Eddie Guerrero passed away.

Man, I wish I had a bunch of ipods so I can watch all of Eddie’s previous matches. Gosh, I miss that guy.

Not to insult any wrestling fan, but I don’t know… a lot of things are not as exciting as it used to be. Some of the greatest (albeit oldest) wrestlers are gone. Rick Flair and Shawn Micheals had quit, Owen Hart and Eddie Guerrero and Umaga had passed away, and some of them have moved to other brands, like Kurt Angle. In fact, sometimes I only watch WWE because of only 5 wrestlers… John Cena, The Big Show, Triple H, Rey Mysterio Jr., and of course the Gawd-awesome Undertaker.

Yep, I’ve been an Undertaker fan since the age of 6. XD

Anyway, back to topic, wrestling is not as exciting (for me) as it used to be. Of course, the gong of Undertaker’s theme still makes me scream like crazy but some of the things they do, and some of the story lines they make… they just don’t make sense anymore.

And none of the wrestlers don’t seem to have the same comedic timing and brilliance of Eddie Guerrero. No one can replace him in the WWE universe it seems.

Man, I really miss the guy. I wish I had one of those “I’m Your Papi” shirts… I’d wear them everyday.
