A poll for you, after the jump, just in case people are still trying to avoid spoilers.
The wrestling fan’s ersatz bank holiday weekend, Wrestlemania 30 was last night, and I had a lot of thoughts about it. Spoiler, obviously.
I wasn’t going to stay up to watch Wrestlemania (and indeed I went to sleep long before the end), but I was delighted to see that the first match (not counting the sadly predictable and depressing pre-show) was Sheamus, Big Show and Randy Orton v The Shield.
Call me a smark (most people do), but I’m loving seeing these boys progress to the WWE’s showcase events. Read the rest of this entry »
Good grief. I mean, it’s not as if I expect stellar pay-per-views from WWE any more, but I was starting to get marginally excited. (Mostly because Jon at Progress Wrestling kept telling me to expect a Kings of Wrestling run-in at the end of the pre-show tag-team title match.)
However, when you begin with an 18-second squash of your World Heavyweight Champion (YES! YES! Um – no?), you’ve kind of set a tone for the evening. Read the rest of this entry »
Ugh. Wrestlezone are reporting that Wade Barrett’s injury incurred after Elimination Chamber is more serious than initially thought, meaning he’ll be out for several months.
It also means there’ll be no Money in the Bank at Wrestlemania, because Barrett was booked to win that.
And it also means that poor Barrett is taking a break from Twitter.
I am done with Twitter for now. See you in a few months.

This saddens me hugely. Although it would have been great to have Barrett involved in storylines while unable to compete, they won’t let him sit on commentary for four months or think up another angle for him to be involved in.
So that means we will be without Barrett, his coat and his fabulous heelery for the next quarter of a year. (For this, I blame Big Show.)
Get well soon, Wade.
