I'm Mad and I'ma Blog About It.

What?

Let's Skip The Pleasantries... I'm Megz (follow me on twitter: @KyngMegz). This Is My First Wrestling Blog But Not My First Blog In General. Get Used To Me. Obviously I'm a Wrestling Fan... But What You Might Not Know Is I'm Angry. I've Been Watching Wrestling Since The Tender Age Of Four Until Now As I Sit Here In My Late Twenties Angry As Hell. Now This Blog Isn't Really For The 'Youngin's'. It's For The Guys Like Me Who Never Liked Hulk Hogan In His Hulkamania Days & Thought The Ultimate Warrior Defeating The Hulkster At Wrestlemania Holding Both The WWF Title & The Intercontinental Title When It Actually Meant Something Was The Most Epic Sight To See (More On That Later). It's For Anybody Who Watched G.L.O.W. On a UHF Station (If You Don't Know What a UHF Station Is Then This Blog Is Not For You). The Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling Had Some Of The Worst Wrestling On Gods Green Earth But It Was Still Wrestling So I Watched It Anyway. Not To Mention I Used To Love Mt. Fiji. I Represent Those Who Remember The Days Of Saturday Night Main Event On NBC. When The WWE Had Tag Teams You Gave a Rats Ass About. Long Gone Are The Days Of The Rockers, The Hart Foundation & Demolition. I'm From The Era When Everybody Watched Wrestling On Monday Nights. When You Say Ladder Match I Think About Shawn Michaels & Razor Ramone Before Edge or The Hardy's Come To Mind. My Top 10 Favorite Wrestlers Of All Time List Includes The Likes Of Sycho Sid & Brian Pilman As Well As Kurt Angle, Daniel Bryan & The Rock. I'm a Fan Cut From a Different Cloth And I'm Angry And This Blog Is About One Of The Things In Wrestling That Makes Me Mad Everytime I Think About It...

The Undertaker vs. Triple H Wrestlemania 28 HIAC Match

...Pisses Me Off Everytime I Think About It. Now I'm Not Saying The Wrestling Match Itself Wasn't The Highlight Of Wrestlemania 28. A Hell In a Cell Match Between The Dead Man versus The King Of Kings With The Heart Break Kid As The Special Guest Referee Plus The Added Bonus Of 'Vintage' J.R. On Commentary (Nobody Delivers From The Announce Table Like J.R. PERIOD). On Paper It Reads Like a Classic & They Delivered a Five Star Match Without a Doubt From Start To Finish. The Game and The Undertaker Body Slammed, Head Butted & Chair Shot Each Other To Bloody Messes. The Addition Of Shawn Michaels As Referee Was The Added Ingredient That Really Gave You The Feel 'The Streak' Could Come To An End With Trips Getting The Assist Or Dirty Refereeing From His Old DX Buddy HBK. In The End The Undertaker Was Victorious and The Streak Remained Intact. Undertaker Hadn't Wrestled a Year Prior To This Match And Came Into Wrestlemania and Showed The World Once Again Why He's a Wrestling Legend and Triple H Gave His All And Put On a Superb Performance That Carried The Undertaker Through One Of His Greatest Matches Ever. It Was a Grand Moment In The Legacy Of The Undertaker. All Was Well As Far As I Was Concerned. They Made All The Right Moves Concerning 'Whats Good For Business' By Giving The Dead Man The Win and Keeping The Streak Alive. Perfection. Well, All The Way Up Until...

Why Is Undertaker Hugging These Clowns?
...All Of a Sudden One Of The Most Epic Matches I Ever Witnessed Involving The Undertaker Who Is One Of My All-Time Favorite WWE Superstars Since Childhood Became What Appeared To Me To Be Trips & Shawn Michaels Trying To Marry Themselves To The End Of The Undertakers Legacy In What Could Be His Last Match In The Worst Way... With a Hug. The Dead Man Should Never Be Made To Look Like He Gives a Damn. It's Part Of His Mystique. Now At The End Of Every Future Undertaker DVD Or Career Retrospective I'm Going To Be Treated To The Image Of The Undertaker, Triple H & Shawn Michaels Helping Each Other Up & Embracing At The Top Of The Ramp? That Makes Me Angry. That Scene Pissed Me Off To The Highest Of Pisstivity. Why? Because That's Not The Undertaker I Know and That Embrace Wasn't Good For Business. J.R. Tried To Play It Off By Calling It a Sign Of Respect. Bah. That's Not The Dead Man I'm Familiar With. I'm An Old School Undertaker Fan. I'm Talking 'Bout Undertaker vs. Yokuzuna Casket Match at The Royal Rumble '94 Old School and Anybody Who Is a True Undertaker Fan Knows No Undertaker Match Was Ever Supposed To End In a Got Damn Hug. Let's Take Undertaker and Mankind's 1998 King Of The Ring HIAC Match. The Undertaker Threw Mankind Off The Cell, Through The Roof Of The Cell, Beat Him Bloody, Slammed Him On Tacks With Good Ole' Jim Ross Selling Every Moment Like Only He Can. After It Was All Said and Done Mankind Was a Broken, Bloody, Pile Of Bones. Undertaker Pinned Him got To His Feet, Looked Back At His Victim In Mama Foley's Baby Boy and Left The Squared Circle By Himself, and That Is How Undertaker's Matches Are Always Supposed To End. They're Supposed To End With The Death Valley Demon Standing Alone. Not In Between Two Of The Most Notorious Spotlight Thieves and Glory Hogs The Wrestling Industry Ever Produced. It Was As Dumb As Hulk Hogan Hugging & Celebrating With the Ultimate Warrior After They're Wrestlemania 6 Match Up. I Don't Want To See Two Guys Acting All Buddy-Buddy After Months Of Cutting Scathing Promos Against Each Other Prior To Beating The Crap Out Each Other. The Undertaker vs Triple H Wrestlemania Post Match Ending Was Lame, Not In Line With The Undertaker Character & Bad For Business. The Way It Ended In An Embrace Which I've Never Seen Undertaker Do After a Match Is What Also Truly Makes Me Believe That Was Possibly His Last Match Without Officially Saying So. Regardless WWE Dropped a Ball and Missed The Potential For An Epic Match & Storyline Still In The Vein Of 'The Attitude Era Must End'. Not To Mention It Made Me Mad.

The Alternative.

...There Should Never Have Been a Hug. No Embrace. Maybe Not Even a Helping To The Feet. Had They Ended The Match In What I'll Call An 'Undertakish Way' They Would've Opened Up The Door For All Kinds Of Possible Matches That Would've Generated All Types Of Excitement. As Far As I'm Concerned... The Undertaker Was Supposed To Had Got To His Feet, Possibly Helped Pick Triple H Up With Shawn Michaels, Turn Around and Choke Slam Both Of Them and Walk Up The Ramp ALONE As He Always Has. The Undertaker I'm Familiar With Isn't About Respecting His Opponents Or Helping His Victims. He's Supposed To Destroy Anything In His Path Showing No Remorse or Empathy What So Ever. Thats One Of The Things That Makes The Likes Of Undertaker, Stone Cold & Samoa Joe Great. They Break Up They're Opponents and Stand Alone. Undertaker Unlike Triple H Never Needed Anybody To Get Over (Paul Bearer Was More Like an Accessory Much Like The Urn). The Undertaker Character Isn't About Making Buddies After The Match and That Hug/Embrace Make Me Angry Everytime I'm Reminded Of It. Now Had The Dead Man Put a Double Choke Slam On DX, That In Itself Would've Created a Huge Buzz and That Would Be In Turn Whats Best For Business. The WWE Could've Had The Internet Wondering Will Shawn Michaels Address The Undertaker After Being Choke Slammed? Was That The Thing To Bring HBK Back For One More Match? Would DX Once Again Unite and This Time As a Team To Finally Vanquish The Undertaker Once & For All? They Could've Thrown Kane In The Mix (Kane Being The Unsung Hero Of The Attitude Era) and Put Together a DX vs. Brothers Of Destruction End Of The Attitude Era Storyline Culminating With a Tag Match At Wrestlemania 29. Now That Would've Been Interesting. That Would've Been Talked About Well After Wrestlemania. Even If None Of These Things Were Even Hinted At Or Came To Pass, The Fact Still Remains... The Undertaker vs. Triple H Hell In a Cell Match At Wrestlemania Was In No Way Supposed To End With a Damn Hug With Shawn Michaels & Triple H Bogarding They're Way Into What Should've Been The Undertakers Moment In The Spotlight ALONE As The Dead Man Has Always Stood At The End Of Any Hard Fought Battle and That Makes Me Angry. Until Next Time, Remeber Kiddies... Ziggler Is The Future. Be Blessed.

    Hey there,

    so I made an account specifically to reply to your blog - so congrats for inspiring? me to do that.

    While I agree that it did take away from the rivalry feeling of the match, I will propose a simple reasoning that I haven't seen as of yet:

    At the previous years WM after the match was over I believe HHH almost broke character then to help Taker to the back, but chose not too and referee's helped him instead.

    Fast forward to this year, and alot of mention was put on the fact that HHH beat the Undertaker so bad he couldn't walk out on his own - so if the Undertaker needed assistance from the referee's again this year wouldn't the outcome of the match basically have been the same?

    So after the match ends it is realized that Undertaker is going to need assistance again and instead of making him look weak, it is hidden under the disguise of "respect".

    Just my thoughts on the subject, and I know that the Undertaker was walking around alot better after the match this year then he was last year, but maybe it was done just to be sure no-one collapsed.

    Interesting thought... However I'm almost inclined to believe that even the refs helping the Undertaker to the back at Wrestlemania 27 was a 'work' designed to give Undertaker the win and make it appear as if Triple H took the Deadman as far as he can go so even though he took the loss the Undertaker was the one who took the most damage. I say that because everytime Triple H takes a loss they make it look as if he barely loss. Triple H is one of the most 'Protected' wrestlers in history (hes even always the most powerful in the WWE games). If you notice at Wrestlemania 28 Triple H was being carted away by the Undertaker and Shawn Michaels. He was in between them being carried off by them so I would only assume if Undertaker had the strength to drag Trips up the ramp on his shoulder he was capable of pulling off a slight double choke slam and heading to the back alone. As far as I'm concerned breaking character is no-no & the Deadman looking weak is ridiculous & very bad for business. Part of GREAT BOOKING is hiding weaknesses and keeping wrestlers characters intact (which is why Paul Heyman is the greatest wrestling mind ever). Undertaker truly a One of a Kind character that should be protected at all costs. The moment a wrestler starts going from bad ass to showing weakness they're Legacy is tarnished. Rick Flair went from top 5 dead or alive to crazy old man because nobody protected his image THE RIGHT WAY. If the Undertaker is in that bad of a shape that he cant go 1 match a year regardless if its HIAC then WM28 NEEDS to be his last outing. Before refs haul Undertaker away in front of the audience they're supposed to cut out all the lights and make him disappear. Thats how you do that for the Dead Man. Thats good for business. Jim Ross Is Supposed To Say: 'The Dead Man Double Choke Slamed DX, Fell To One Knee Exhausted & Vanished! Oh My God!' and when the lights were out the refs were dragging the Undertaker up outta there as for the fans not to see the Dead Man unable to get to the back under his own strength. His character is so SPECIAL & his contributions are so great he DESERVES to be 'Protected' at great lengths, at all times. The Undertaker mythos are based on the Supernatural anyway and in no way should the Death Valley Demon be looking totally defeated.

    Wow Ok.. Well the views mostly come down to what time of day it is posted. Also you have had a lot of comments, which is what initially drew me here to comment on this. Just because your blog has a lot of views does not make it great.

    2000 views is normal, I have had blogs with over 4000 views. I guess I will not read anymore of your blogs though if this is how you respond to criticism.

    Also click on "Best Blogs" and you will see my name there. I have had 5 star blogs with a lot more then 2000 views. My two recent blogs were validated at the exact same time as other blogs, which is why they probably didnt get viewed as much.

    My blog numbers: 4341, 1643, 3089, 6041, 2457, 4450, 1238, 8042.

    Notice the 6k and 8k ones? They were my John Cena and Aces and Eights blogs. So you can now feel big and manly with your 2-3k views. Well done sport.

    Sencond of all, off topic: Please do not present your blogviews as a rating of quality. I'm not defending Kylos, since i don't think his way of saying his opinion was quite right, but don't think that if someone's blog got a few more hits, it's quality is better. If i think of a good title for a blog, that's really catchy so people click on it, but the message is crap i still could get more hits then any blog and still the quality would be less.

    Anyhow, i don't meant to offend you, but that's just some feedback and a opinion i wanted to share with you. Good luck on your next effords and keep up the good work!
    Thanks, I could have probably tried to put my point across in a better way, but this guy seems to think more views makes a better blog, which isn't logical.

    For him to say he is John Cena (Delusional much?) while I am Tyson Kidd? Hell Yea I would rather be Tyson Kidd, at least he can wrestle.
