Are we doing another Rumble sweepstakes again? I'd be keen if you lot are - no prizes, natch, but it's always a laugh.

I miss watching Wrestling . . . I might actually check out the rumble. And then make my third attempt to properly get into NJPW.

You've also got the other promotions which might be easier for you to watch being in Japan as I hear Kento Miyahara always has a good match in All Japan or some Joshi with likes of Stardom that has had some good matches like last year a time limit draw between Syuri & Giulia.

Enter me in your sweepstakes too, and go watch AJPW's Toshiaki Kawada Vs Mitsuharu Misawa match from 3rd June 1994

Puro connoisseur Cappuccino Kid is in the Rumble, as is Smurf, Mas, Dusty, Buska, Jas and myself.

That's 4 numbers each at least and bugger it, I'll give the Grackler the final two.

Here are your numbers as according to a random number generator I used:

Jay - 3, 4, 12, 23

Mas - 5, 9, 16, 22

Smurf - 10, 13, 20, 26

Jas - 18, 19, 28, 30

Dusty - 1, 6, 7, 24

Buska - 15, 21, 25, 29,

Cappa - 2, 14, 17, 27,

The Grackler - 8, 11

Watch as I end up with Dolph Ziggler, Baron Corbin, Shelton Benjamin and Tucker.

It's mad that the winners of both of yesterdays rumbles are from spots that have only won it two maybe three times?

Two (Shawn Michaels 1995, Chris Benoit 2004) winners from number 1, one (Ric Flair 1992) from number 3.

Aye, the Rumble was a quality show all around, wasn't it? It's been ages since I've watched a PPV live and even longer since I've watched one without feeling knackered towards the end of the show, but I was into every match on the card and both Rumbles were top notch as well. Top stuff.

I'm very excited to see where this NJPW/AEW crossover is heading. Seeing Okada on AEW will be amazing, if it ever happens.

Meltzer seems to think Okada is coming and got Impact mixed in like FinJuice will be on impact soon.

Crying with laughter at Mick Foley's earlier Tweet where we wished The Big Show the best of luck with All Elite Wrestling, only for his autocorrect to change from the @AEW username to that of an SNP MP from Cowdenbeath.

It's very telling that we’re literally hours away from the start of WrestleMania - and five days into the so-called WrestleMania Week - and yet we've got no chat for what’s supposed to be the biggest show of the year. That's completely understandable given the circumstances though. My interest in wrestling is just about gone in the last year, and the build-up for WresltleMania 37 hasn't helped that at all. I'm sure that's the case for most folk too.

The most intriguing aspect about WrestleMania is having fans back. You’d hope we get big reactions to everything and everybody, it seems that the programming since last March has really lacked that genuine human reaction and excitement. And yet sound doesn't travel well in stadiums, especially in ones that are half-full.



The full card is in that video. On paper, it doesn't look up to much. However, I'd expect many of these matches to exceed my expectations - you'd have to think that the majority of these performers would be really motivated to do the best they can. 

Is anybody arsed about WrestleMania this weekend?

Mania is why I'm off at the moment, but I can't be arsed to watch it live especially over two nights. I will watch tonight's whenever I get up tomorrow, then the same on Monday for Night 2.

I like that Bobby v Drew is on first, which should get a decent pop from the audience which is 25k then Sasha v Bianca the main event for Night 1.

Wrestling as whole though I still just watch highlights of AEW Dynamite and NXT (Which I did for stand & deliver) and that’s about it.

I have had this discussion with my wrestling pals. It's the first year since 2006 that I have no interest in the wrasslin' and that's primarily down to the lack of crowds. When I think why I enjoy WWE, it's for moments like the Royal Rumble pops, the storytelling of a Bret/Shawn match, the whole Daniel Bryan angle, The Rock's promos where he has the crowd in the palm of his hand... It's all related to the crowd. My favourite match of all time is The Rock vs Hogan at Mania 18 and that's down to the crowd. Watching wrestling without fans has affected the feel of it all, much more than it has the football in fact. I still see what's going on thanks to Twitter and the Cultaholic YouTube content, but it doesn't sound like I've missed much.

I was really into AEW in its first year but watching them continue to sign WWE people and repeating this whole Tyson thing is really depressing. It felt like an alternative to WWE but now comes across like a modern WCW. Having JR, Schiavone, Tazz and crew doesn't help - it just feels like they are trying to get that Attitude Era fanbase back when many have moved on. When Sting came back I just had that Homer Simpson quote come to mind: "You're living in the past Marge, quit living in the past".

Once the crowds are back, I'll probably start watching again but for now, it feels a bit too "violent panto" for me.

Sounds like they put on quite a good show overall which I did expect to be fair, I'm just a bit done with wrestling now, it's too much effort to watch one night for me, nevermind 4 with the NXT stuff as well.
