    The first HW after Mania 31 I'm pushing to be Halloween Havoc 1999 in honor of Vince Russo comparing himself to Jesus.

    And it's on April Fools Day which is so appropriate.

    So my new question is: why haven't Barrett and Flint adopted the tag team name of Realest Dads in the Room yet?

    More DeMott stories, less on the abuse side and more on the micro management side.
    Since a lot of DeMott stories are coming out with him gone, one of them is that at the NXT Takeover show, he was the agent for the Kevin Owens vs. C.J. Parker match. So the match you saw was the match they worked out. DeMott didn't like it between not wanting so many moves in the opener and didn't like the big guy doing the flip dive (which is funny because DeMott first made his name in Japan by being a 300 pound guy who always did a moonsault). Steen complained to Levesque about it and Levesque just said to let Kevin do what he wants. This led to a lot of jealousy because you've got the guys Levesque is building the NXT around who get to do what they want and everyone else, who is micro-managed and told not to wrestle the indie-style which is the style that gets over the best in front of their indie crowds.

    Ok so I've been watching Botchamania again in order, and 92 is probably the best one yet. It was solely dedicated to TNA Victory Road 09 which featured one of the worst matches ever, Sharmel vs Jenna Marasca. Because of that it had the first really great ending which spawned the minus 5 stars gimmick. Recommended!

    I can honestly see why the other guys are jealous, if the perception is that guys like Owens have the boss's ear. Honestly, they shouldn't be putting arbitrary restrictions on anybody like that.

    Bray Rusev needs to win. The build he had last year was perfect and beating Cena at mania would really bring him up to the main event.

    Rusev ain't winning. Best case scenario is they make it a cage match with Cena winning by falling to the outside so Rusev doesn't have to get pinned.

    But really though, it won't torpedo his career losing to Cena unless Vince loses interest in him.

    Pitchfork's interview about the new Mountain Goats album, Beat The Champ, all about wrestling

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4lqy7KBuO7Y
    ("The Legend of Chavo Guerrero")
    [John] Darnielle grew up in Southern California, and when he flipped through Saturday morning and late-night TV, he would find wrestling broadcasts in both English and Spanish. There were local heroes and villains, along with guys like Andre the Giant, who would roll through town every now and then to leave fans like Darnielle in awe. "[Andre] comes walking in, and people just flock to him like he was a Messianic creature," he remembers of one live event. He actually shook the icon’s hand, too. "I remember this feeling, like my hand was vanishing in his—so cool."

    A few of the album’s tracks are about specific people, like its lead single, "The Legend of Chavo Guerrero", which is an ode to Darnielle’s childhood hero. Meanwhile, "Stabbed to Death Outside San Juan" tells the tragic story about Bruiser Brody’s murder, and "Luna" is about the 2010 fire that destroyed many of veteran female wrestler Luna Vachon’s possessions. But Beat the Champ isn't just filled with historical accounts of noteworthy wrestlers and uncomplicated glorification of spilled blood and broken bones. It’s an album that details the quiet moments before the fans pile into the arena, the late nights on the road, and the emotional wear that comes from getting heckled by strangers. "I loved you before I even ever knew what love was like," Darnielle sings in a song called "Hair Match". These are wrestling stories, for sure, but they’re also human stories.

    I'd rather someone else end Rusev's streak for sure. But even after Cena someone beating Rusev will be a big deal.

    Who beat Kurt Angle after Taz ended the streak? Nobody cares.
    Who beat Goldberg after Kevin Nash ended the streak? Nobody cares.
    Who beat Tatanka after Ludvig Borga ended his unbeaten streak? Nobody cares (I'm joking, everybody cares about this!).

    Everyone is different. Everyone is special.

    Someone beating Goldberg after Nash did it was sorta still a big deal since it was a rare happening.

    I know I've said this before, but Rusev being beaten by Cena isn't to build Cena, it's to build Rusev.

    The point isn't that John Cena is really great because look, he beat Rusev, it's that it took the number one face in the company, the practically unbeatable John Cena, to beat Rusev. And he needed two tries.

    And once that happens, he stops being the US Champion, meaning he can actually move up to a higher level. And he can be booked more naturally against people because they no longer have to go with BS finishes every time he has to lose.

    And that's without considering that he's never going to get a better first (real) loss than Patriot John Cena at WrestleMania. Dolph Ziggler at Extreme Rules? Sandow at Payback? Ryback at MitB?

    Rusev needs to lose the US title and he needs to eat a pinfall. I mean, I think they'll have him pass out again to protect him or maybe even have Lana throw in the towel and that's how he gets to go "I never tapped" and Lana gets sent back to Russia for the duration of the filming of "Interrogation", but I believe they'd be much better off to have him eat a Super AA off the top rope and be pinned off that.

    Wrestling has a long history of people whose main attraction was an undefeated streak and whose heat sputtered out after that was taken away

    And there's also heaps of people who were just fine when they lost their undefeated status

    Rusev could go either way I reckon

    Rusev doesn't just have the streak though, he has the whole pro-Russia persona that as long as Putin keeps doing vile shit will keep drawing heat.

    I don't see Vince giving up on him anytime soon either but another issue might be him having to wait his turn for a main event title run in front of Seth and Bray. And maybe even Roman.
