Big-10 Conference Outlook

What more can I say other than, Ohio State? OSU's early game against USC could be their only loss and we might see a re-match in the BCS championship. It wouldn't surprise me at all. Penn State should be improved in what I really HOPE is Joe Paterno's last season. The guy can still coach but he scares me out there. Wisconsin will also be in the hunt for a top bowl game, and Michigan will be very SCARY in a few years if Rich Rod can get his kind of player's there. They really missed out on Terrelle Pryor. Other than that it will be the same old shit in the Big-10. Nobody will be HORRIBLY bad, let's just hope Northwestern can beat Duke this year.

Pac-10 Conference Outlook

Like I mentioned in my SEC conference outlook, the Pac-10 is the 2nd best conference in the nation next to the SEC. Depending on how the dice rolls, the USC Trojans, Arizona State Sun Devils, California Golden Bears, and the Oregon Ducks could be knocking on the door of the Top 10 all year long. USC is just too talented all round, I just can't seen them losing. The Sun Devils will thrive in Dennis Erickson's 2nd year with the team, watch...history doesn't lie. Cal should be able to rebound from last year's historical DIVE. Depending on how Nate Costa does at QB (rumor is he is doing GREAT in Oregon's spread option offense thus far), the Ducks could surprise some people. They have one of the best secondary's in the Nation and also lead the Nation with THREE guys on the Jim Thorpe Award watch list. Oregon State is once again underrated and always has a few surprises up their sleeve. UCLA will improve slightly thanks to Rick Neuheisel, give them time. Meanwhile, Washington State, Washington, and Stanford should be cellar dwellers.

SEC Conference Outlook:

Another year of college football, another year where the SEC is arguably the best conference in college football. While I personally believe the Pac-10 is the second strongest conference overall, the SEC is by far the best. Florida, Georgia, Auburn, and LSU are all National Title contenders this year. In my opinion Florida, Auburn, and Georgia could all be ranked in the top 5 and I wouldn't have any sort of issue with it. As for the rest of the conference? Alabama and South Carolina should improve this year. Alabama will be fantastic in a year or two due to Nick Saban's recruiting. It should be a down year for Arkansas and Kentucky, both teams lost quality players on offense. Other than that, it will be the same ol same ol in the SEC.
And we're rolling... - 04.29.2008

I rented my first NWA-TNA PPV the other night out of pure boredom (hell, it was 3 o'clock in the morning) so I decided to pass my misery from that crapfest on to you guys by giving you my rant for NWA-TNA. I haven't rented a TNA PPV for about a year now (ever since I heard there was going to be a one legged wrestler named Tenacious Z wrestle, and wow, is he played out now). I must warn you, if I'm biased towards the WWE a little bit.....THAT'S BECAUSE THE WWE IS 100,000,000x better then this shit.

Erik Watts comes on TV and talks about cable piracy and how the wrestler's get paid from US buying the show and how would the people who steal the show for free feel if he came over to their house and ate their food???? How about this Erik Watts, you haven't entertained me since you come out in a shiny suit as part of Techno Team 2000 so you should be paying me money to watch you, you son of a bitch.

The TNA song is rapped by Randy Savage.

LOL

ROFL

LMAO

WOOP DE WOOP

1st match: Abyss vs. D'Lo Brown

Abyss just looks like a cheap version of the old Kane. Why not change him up a little bit and give him a name like "Fred" or something? And what the hell happened to D'Lo's face??? The guy has spots all over it! I guess it's true......when wrestler's leave the WWE, there looks and life goes to shit. Personally, I don't rate matches because I've never been in a ring before so how do I know what's good and what's not......FUCK ALL YOU GUYS WHO RATE THE SHIT! WATCH THE SHOW AND JUST LAUGH AT D'LO'S SPOTS!

A bunch of guys are in the back led by "Triple J" (his nickname in TNA????) and Jarrett's talking on the phone to somebody.....a whole bunch of bad acting here that makes Test look like friggin Robert DeNiro. PASS.

2nd match: Chris Sabin vs. Michael Shane

I'm assuming Chris Sabin is German since his trademark calling is "HAIL SABIN". A funny thing about TNA is ALL of their titan trons look alike, and they all look like screensavers off a computer with the wrestler's names written on them. I was too busy laughing at the screensaver titan trons to watch this match, but I'm sure it was good...because isn't Michael Shane, HBK's cousin? If so, it's funny seeing Michael Shane buddy up with Shane Douglas the guy who was supposedly "ran out" of the WWF by HBK, Nash, and Hall.

Mike Tenay interviews some guy from Survivor named "Johnny Fairplay". Right off the bat I find this guy fucking annoying. I know him from his days as Roddy Piper's employee and when they tried to start up Oregon Championship Wrestling a few years back. God, I hate Johnny Fairplay. Come back to Oregon so I can slice your throat with a knife.

The most boring and talentless guy in ECW history is now on my TV set, The Sandman. TNA looks like they are trying to capitiliaze on any ECW fanfare still around as Sandman has been trying to bring in former ECW stars to help take care of Julio Dinero and CM Punk (who rules by the way). First, he tried Raven but Raven failed him, then he tried Louie Spicolli, but forgot he was dead, then he tried Jake Roberts but Sandman forgot to bring crack to the arena.....OK, so the last two were jokes. But SANDMAN SWEARS HE HAS SOMEBODY HUGE! Which usually is a dissapointment. And that somebody huge is.....Mikey Whipwreck????? Excuse me while I call my cable company up and demand both my money and my time back. Anyway, the ECW guys lose and Sandman now say's he's going to bring to TNA next week.....THE KING OF HARDCORE. That's right, the only man who was around when the 1st person on Earth painted the sky blue....Terry Funk.

After hearing that last announcement I waited for Brian Urlacher to come out and see what he was going to do. And the minute I see Urlacher bounce off the ropes in the clumsiest fashion I've ever seen, I turned this fucker off. I shit you not. I vow to never buy a TNA PPV again unless Vince McMahon orders me too, or unless Scott Hall shows up.

A huge FUCK you to NWA-TNA for not only sucking, but bringing in the worst rap band ever.....the Insane Clown Posse. And the only thing worse then ICP is those idiotic fans of theirs. FUCK YOU ALL!
And we're rolling... - 04.18.2008

Recently I stumbled across an old LiveJournal of mine from 2003-2005. In it I have numerous wrestling and other reports that have never been posted anywhere else besides that journal (which was never read by more than 20+ people!). So here are some gems from that journal which I will share with you in my 411mania blog.

(Remember that I wrote these in 2003-2005. I was a 22 year old punk with a bad attitude. Now a days, I'm a 27 year old man with a bad attitude!)




So I went to the Smackdown house show last night....here's a quick recap of how things went.

I was seated RIGHT ABOVE where the wrestler's come out, so I got some sweet pictures which I hope to get online soon. Dean Malenko was standing to the side of the entrance ramp right below me. I didn't say anything to him, because what are you going to say? "DUDE DEAN YOU RULE!" No, plus he's working so I didn't want to fuck with the guy. I noticed a sign that said "Get a pece of the Kish". HAAAAA. I love when people display their shitty spelling skills for the whole arena to see.

Unfortunately I was seated by 3 retards. One guy who smelt like afterbirth, some girl with down syndrome, and a guy who was picking his nose and eating it. Or as I like to call it......the poster family for pro wrestling. This was the first wrestling event that I wasn't drunk at in along time. Here's a quick run down of the matches:

Match 1
Rey Misterio vs. Nunzio

The crowd was all for Misterio. Besides me of course. When I watch live I love to cheer for the heels just because the reaction from people cracks me up. Misterio won.

Match 2
Akiyo/Sakoda vs. World's Greatest Tag Team

SPOILERS SPOILERS! WGTT is turning face. They got a HUGE face reaction and they'll probably be re-teamed with Angle. Jimmy Yang got my vote for best heel of the night when he ripped this little girl's sign then flipped her off. Christ, I was laughing so hard. WGTT won this match.

Match 3
Sean O'Haire vs. Rhyno

I was confused at first because both of these guys play heels on TV. Then before the match started Rhyno grabbed the mic and goes "I love Portland!" and then he goes "Who here wants to see me kick his ass ECW style baby!" This got a ECW chant from the crowd and they were definetely behind Rhyno. O'Haire won the match, and then Rhyno grabbed the mic and said "I was just kidding, I HATE Portland! If you guys were really behind me then I would've won the match!" I was laughing hysterically. Before Rhyno got into the entrance way I yelled "Detroit sucks BITCH!" which got a middle finger from Rhyno. WOO HOO! I just wish I would've had my camera ready.

Match 4
Rikishi/Scotty 2 Hotty vs. Johnny The Bull/Chuck Palumbo

This was a comedy match. As much as I hate Rikishi and Scotty they had me busting up. They won the match, and afterwards brought a kid out of the audience and the kid danced with them. Scotty then got "mad" because the kid wouldn't do the worm. So he put the kid in position for a stink face but the kid ran back to his parents. Fuck, I was cracking up. On the way up the ramp Stamboli ripped that sign I mentioned earlier "Get a pece of the Kish!", HAHAHAHAHAHA! On the way up though Rikishi signed the guy's sign.

Match 5
WWE Cruiserweight Championship
Tajiri vs. Ultimo Dragon vs. Jamie Noble

I got up to take a piss for this match because I couldn't hold it in anymore. When I came back Tajiri had YET to enter the ring. This match was pretty short and Tajiri got the win when he kicked Ultimo in the head.

Match 6
WWE Tag Team Championship
The Basham's vs. Los Guerreros

Los Guerrero's were insanely over. The Basham's came down wearing old Demolition like masks, they had better keep those fuckers on because it makes them WAY better. The Basham's won, and once again Chavo got MAD at Eddy. Split the fuckers up already.

Match 7
Matt Morgan/Nathan Jones/Big Show vs. Bradshaw/Chris Benoit/Hardcore Holly

Paul Heyman came out and said that he had suspended Hardcore Holly from the building so it was now a tag team match with Morgan/Jones vs. Bradshaw/Benoit. Heyman then got into an arguement with some guy at ringside and said "Well, since this ONE guy from Portland wants to come out and piss me off. This match is now a handicap match!" So Big Show came out.....and it was now 3 on 2. It was funny watching Big Show keep having to remind Nathan Jones what to do. I can't remember who won because I was laughing at the retards sitting by me.

Tiny Teddy Contest

YAWN. I hate these things. This one featured Dawn Marie vs. Sable. Sable came out and said we didn't deserve to see her naked. Therefore saving me from having to see somebody the same age as my mom get half naked. Dawn Marie is friggin hot. She did get half naked which I didn't mind. Sable played a heel, but stopped midway up the ramp to kiss a little girl.

Main event
WWE Championship
John Cena vs. Brock Lesnar

Cena was insanely over. He came out and did a rap with great lines such as:

"I'm gonna win that title tonight Brock, I hope you got it polished, I'm gonna take you to town like my homeboy Rasheed Wallace!"

Which got a pop from me. This match was pretty short. Brock got the win.....but then Hardcore Holly ran down and started to attack Brock! This brought out Matt Morgan, Nathan Jones, and Big Show. Then out came Chris Benoit and Bradshaw. The faces cleared the ring. John Cena finally got up and was alone in the ring. He grabbed the mic and did some shooting which resulted in hilarity. He started reading people's signs. One GREAT moment was when he noticed a guy's sign that said:

"Cena is the prototype of gay porn"

Cena then said "Yo yo yo, that guy out there has a sign that say's I'm a fag, I guess he forgot he's the one who did the 4 page layout in the gay porno mag!"

Great stuff. Big Show then came back down to the ring and Cena said something about how Big Show should lay out a rap.....but not just any rap, he needs to rap PORTLAND STYLE. He then hands Big Show the mic, but then PICKS HIM UP FOR THE F-U! GREAT STUFF. Cena leaves to a HUGE reaction. Big Show was walking back to the back and had his nose up high like a snob! HA! Leaving with pride!

Great stuff. I love house shows.
