We’re only two days away from WrestleMania! The episode starts with a very nice history of ‘Mania piece. Booker T and Josh Matthews are the hosts for this special episode of the Friday night tradition. The following historic WrestleMania matches are recapped:
The Undertaker vs. Triple H, WrestleMania XXVII
Macho Man Randy Savage vs. Ricky Steamboat, WrestleMania III
Edge vs. John Cena vs. The Big Show, WrestleMania XXV
Shawn Michaels vs. Chris Jericho, WrestleMania XIX
The Undertaker vs. Randy Orton, WrestleMania 21
The Rock vs. Stone Cold Steve Austin, WrestleMania XIX
See you all next week!
But wait… that only applies to the UK crowd. The US got an action packed episode of… well OK we got some extra stuff but it was still a ‘Mania heavy show.
Zack Ryder vs. Drew McIntyre.
Your announcers tonight are Matt Striker and Josh Matthews. These two should be the announcers all the time. Please take Michael Cole off of TV.
Drew spits water! This must herald a push! Only main eventers can spit water. But he’s not a main event guy yet. Zack hits a rough ryder for win. Zack is crazy over. The crowd chanting Woo Woo Woo was insane. Great framing by the camera crew too.
Scenes from Axxess. Hype videos throughout. I’ve been to one of these. Loads of fun. Maybe I’ll write up some WrestleMania memories tonight or tomorrow morning in anticipation.
There’s going to be a countdown show on YouTube at 630PM Sunday. Hopefully its archived because I don’t know when I’ll be able to watch any of Mania. Might even have to wait until, gasp, Monday morning! Noooooo!!!!!
Big Show cuts a promo. That’s about it.
Chris Jericho vs. Kofi Kingston.
A fine match but when Jericho is challenging for the WWE title and Kofi is one of 500 guys in a match you know who is going to win. Kofi does a damn good job in the match though. Still an excellent wrestler. Both men are. However, with the winner being obvious the match didn’t have any aura around it.
That’s all! Real quick episode this week and thus a quick review. Probably a few thousand words on WrestleMania coming up though.
