Hello and welcome to my second ever blog, and the second installment of 'Ringside Ramblings'. I'd like to start this week by apologizing to the EWN community as i made some stupid and inconsiderate comments in the forums regarding SummerSlam spoilers and was subsequently banned. I'm not sure what i was thinking but i was being incredibly selfish and i vow to make sure it won't happen again.
So on to this weeks topic of discussion which I've decided to title....
The Return of Anyone?!
So as we get near the halfway point in our 'WWE Season' the obvious rumors start to swirl about who we can expect to be involved in next years Wrestlemania and it seem this time round, the answer is 'Anybody'......and for good reason. This is Wrestlemania 30, this is the biggest its ever been and its 30 years of history in one night.....so who do we want there?
There are the obvious names to start with: Austin, The Rock and Taker.
I think the only one of these guys we can definitely say will be there is the dead man, lets face it, unless he suffers a bad injury, he'll be on the card. The Rock may show his face but i don't think it will be anything like the last couple of years, it doesn't need to be. You've had your comeback Rocky, now go enjoy Hollywood. So then we have The Texas Rattlesnake, the man everyone wants to see go at it one more time and the only 'return to the ring' that could truly make this the biggest mania ever. In my eyes Austin & Punk have to go at it. Its a dream match that's very realistic and i think Vince knows how much money it will make him so he'll definitely try to make it happen.
Then the not so obvious ones: Goldberg, Batista, Jeff Hardy, Angle & Hogan.
The rumors about Bill Goldberg being at WM30 really don't mean anything to me. To be honest i was never a huge WCW guy and his run in WWE was pretty poor so i don't care to see him again. Batista is a guy i would like to see come back for a little run but maybe not just for Mania, again i don't think its the right stage for him (maybe the night after mania like Brock did).
So then the little more unrealistic Hardy, Angle & Hogan. Now i'm pretty sure that none of these guys will be at the show but I've learned to eat my words over the years. Jeff Hardy, for me, doesn't deserve it. Even if he is clean i feel like he let the company down too many times when they put him at the top and there are too many guys that work hard for him to be given a 20th chance. Now Angle is the only other guy i'd really want to see other than Austin. He's spent too much time in TNA for my liking and needs one more go at the top before he's too old to do it......so sort yourself out Kurt! Hogan has to be on the list because he's Hogan and its Wrestlemania 30. Who wouldn't want to see him pose for 15 minutes just for the sake of it?!
There are obviously others that i'd like to see involved in the show in some capacity and they're all pretty obvious too. HBK, Edge, Flair, Foley & Shane McMahon are a few that everyone would enjoy i'm sure.
Now i'm sure i will get comments suggesting that i'm living in the past and that i need to get out of the Attitude Era but for me, this Mania should be about a changing of guard. There are so many new superstars emerging in WWE today and i think a Wrestlemania where the new faces reign supreme over the old heroes that we know and love, will be a real statement of intent for the future. So WWE, bring the guys we want to see back for Wrestlemania 30, but don't make the show about them.
So that's it for this week folks, I'd love to hear you thoughts and what you'd like to see going forward so get commenting.
Till Next Time.
