    Wrestlemania On Earth: Wrestlemania 31 Card Predictions

    Wrestlemania season is underway as we get ready for the Royal Rumble. The guys try to predict the WM card.

    Site members @JoeySplashwater, @TomBlargh and @TimWelcomed give their (un)educated guesses on what the card will be for Wrestlemania 31.


    Joey predicts the Wrestlemania 31 card

    • Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns for the WWE Championship

    With the aftermath of how things went after deciding to go with Daniel Bryan over Batista, I think WWE will stay the course this year and go with its dream match of Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns. Rumors say this has been the plan since last April. I unfortunately don’t see enough to change my expectation of this being the main event.

    • Triple H vs. Sting

    This one is fairly obvious at this point and would be the most sure bet. Maybe something is on the line like winner gets to run RAW or maybe it’s just a personal feud. Sting likely to replace The Undertaker this year as the legacy HOF star wrestling on a rare occasion in his first WWE match.

    • John Cena vs. Rusev

    John Cena defending America vs. the anti-American heel seems like the way they’ll have to go if Cena isn’t facing Brock Lesnar or Seth Rollins. What other heel is left? I think it would work well. I mean, the USA vs. Rusev storyline worked with Jack Swagger of all people. I can’t imagine Cena not playing that card well.

    This Or That (9/30/2014)

    Everybody loves binary decisions, especially wrestling fans! In This Or That, we’ve forced ourselves to choose between two options that relate to wrestling.

    Over four questions, @TimWelcomed, @JoeySplashwater and @TomBlargh will have to choose one of two options and give their reasoning on each of their choices. You can then vote on which one you’d choose, giving you the false impression that you’re somehow involved and we care about your opinion chance to join the conversation!

    Before we start, here’s last week‘s results:

    Who will have more WWE World Heavyweight title reigns in 2015?

    Roman Reigns – 58%, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins COMBINED – 42%

    More likely to be running shows this time next year?

    TNA – 76%, Global Force Wrestling – 24%

    Better feud for Bray Wyatt going forward?

    Dolph Ziggler – 53%, Big Show – 47%

    Better vegetable?

    Broccoli – 59%, Lettuce – 41%

    Who will face Seth Rollins in the Cell: John Cena or Dean Ambrose?

    Rumor has it Cena vs. Ambrose kicks off Hell In A Cell. Winner faces Seth Rollins in the main event inside the cage. Loser would face Randy Orton later on.



    I’d gladly go do other things during another Orton vs Cena match if it meant Ambrose’s momentum stays intact and we get a Ambrose vs Rollins Hell In A Cell match out of it. I mean, with Cena being a stand-up guy and a knowledgeable veteran with some pull he would probably tell WWE management that he needs to lose to Ambrose at this juncture and use his powers to do the right thing for the future. RIGHT??

    Dean Ambrose


    It’s very difficult to imagine Cena going on three PPV’s in a row without a victory, especially coming off the Summerslam demolishing by Brock Lesnar. The booking history dictates that he gets some big wins back but man, Dean Ambrose’s momentum is way too hot to stop.

    It feels like Ambrose is on the precipice of something special and he needs one more really strong performance as a “star making night” to get to the next level. Beating the top guy in the company and then his arch rival who has had his number inside Hell In A Cell would be that. Plus, the rumor of the loser facing Orton would give you the out of Cena destroying Orton. It can and will work out where Dean Ambrose faces Seth Rollins inside that Cell.

    Dean Ambrose


    I want to pick Dean Ambrose, but given that’d likely result in YET ANOTHER Cena/Orton PPV match, I can’t go that direction. It’s too unthinkable.

    John Cena

    This Or That (9/16/2014)

    Everybody loves binary decisions, especially wrestling fans! In This Or That, we’ve forced ourselves to choose between two options that relate to wrestling.

    Over four questions, @TimWelcomed, @JoeySplashwater and @TomBlargh will have to choose one of two options and give their reasoning on each of their choices. You can then vote on which one you’d choose, giving you the false impression that you’re somehow involved and we care about your opinion chance to join the conversation!

    Before we start, here’s last week‘s results:

    Which wrestler are you more excited to see return from time off?

    Daniel Bryan  – 82%, Dean Ambrose – 18%

    Which TNA free agent would you rather see return to WWE?

    Kurt Angle – 76%, Bully Ray – 24%

    Cooler Young Bucks move?

    More Bang For Your Buck – 59%, Meltzer Driver – 41%

    Better fall clothing item?

    Hoodie – 91%, Scarf – 9%

    Who will have more WWE World Heavyweight title reigns in 2015: Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins COMBINED or Roman Reigns?

    Is the future The Roman Empire or do the other Shield members have a chance to pass Reigns?



    As much as I like to hope WWE won’t stay the course with Reigns, I really think they are going to stick to it. Reigns will win the title at Wrestlemania 30 and hold the belt once or twice throughout the course of 2015. I am willing to bet that Rollins and Ambrose will never once hold the gold in 2015. My faith in WWE creative may be at or near an all-time low recently. Hell, we may even get a Big Show or Kane feud against Reigns. Exciting times ahead…

    Roman Reigns


    My expectations are for plans to stay in motion and Roman Reigns will defeat Brock Lesnar to win the title at Wrestlemania. Rollins will try to cash in right after the match as his sell being that he wants “the Wrestlemania moment” over his ex partner but Roman will also defeat him to start his reign. (Pun intended.)

    If anyone beats Reigns eventually afterwards, it will probably be Cena or Bryan. Those three and Brock are the four that will be title holders in 2015 as I see Ambrose moving down the card a little after his feud with Rollins ends and the same happening to Rollins eventually though both will have big roles. Sorry, Ambrosebuds. It’s sadly The Roman Empire in 2015.

    Roman Reigns


    It’s really tough to imagine Reigns being given a long run as champ. If I had to guess, I think he’ll have it from around Wrestlemania to Summerslam, at which point the crowd will have turned on him to the point that he’ll drop it to Daniel Bryan (assuming he’s healthy), and then maybe we’ll get Bryan feuding with Rollins and Ambrose to make post-Summerslam WWE worth a damn for once. This is all dumb fantasy booking though, so shut the fuck up, Tom.

    I dunno, man. It seems inevitable that Rollins will get a run once he cashes in the briefcase, but I really can’t picture him holding it for long or Ambrose being the one to take it from him. I’m desperately trying to find a way to say Rollins and Ambrose here! It seems unlikely, but you know what? I’m just gonna DARE TO DREAM TO BELIEVE that those precious darlings will find a way to overcome The Roman Empire.

    Rollins and Ambrose

    Dirt Sheet History: September 2006

    Take a trip back to a memorable timeline in sports entertainment with the most important stories reported as fact in the journalistic world of pro wrestling dirt sheets.

    Following the timeline of the last Dirt Sheet History looking back at August 2006, we get a glimpse into the top scoops from September of 2006. Kurt Angle goes to TNA, wrestlers meet blogs, Batista’s sadness and much more.

    Reminder that you can find all past editions of Dirt Sheet History looking at 2004 and 2005 right here at this very link. Now enjoy September 2006.



    * The #1 wrestler for this year’s PWI 500 has been revealed. The top spot came down to Samoa Joe and John Cena. The winner of the 2006 PWI 500 is John Cena. This is the first time in which he has been ranked number one in the annual special edition magazine.


    * Just to add more to the previously reported return of Chris Benoit. Benoit is currently scheduled to return on 9/9 at the West Palm Beach House Show. Originally Benoit was scheduled to return and go against Mark Henry, but Henry is now also out with injuries and is not expected to return anytime in the near future. There was also talk that Benoit may have been upset with the way his match at One Night Stand II was handled. There was talks of a Benoit vs Malenko (Dean) match that was scheduled to take place, but never came about after it was decided this PPV would be the launch of an all new ECW Brand.

    Benoit also need some time off to heal up some nagging injuries and he also wanted to take care of his wife who was recovering from surgery herself. It is not known when Benoit will show up on television.


    * This week on RAW, a vignette aired for a new tag team headed to the RAW brand – Cryme Tyme.

    Cryme Tyme members Shad Gaspard and JTG are straight out of a 50 Cent video – with iced out grills, bling and bulletproof vests. In the segment, they were training for their big RAW debut by timing how long it took for them to rob a smoothie store. After attacking the cashier, taking the money from the cash register and talking into the security monitor – the two realized they were 3 seconds over their limit. They decided to rob another store to improve on their quickness.

    WWE posted the following statement on WWE.com:

    “Tonight a new tag team, Cryme Tyme, will be introduced to the RAW audience. In an effort to humor and entertain our fans the tag team known as Cryme Tyme will be parodying racial stereotypes.

    Shad Gaspard and JTG do outlandish, outrageous “stunts” to ready themselves for tag team action on RAW. This attempt at Saturday Night Live-like humor is bound to entertain audiences of all ethnic derivations.

    We hope you enjoy the weekly adventures of Cryme Tyme.”


    * Former mid-to-late 90’s WWF star Henry O. Godwin could be making a return to WWE. He defeated WWE Cruiserweight champion Gregory Helms in a non-title match at a Smackdown brand house show on Sunday night.


    * The Great Khali has been suspended from his job in India as an assistant sub-inspector with Punjab Armed Police (PAP), according to IndiaENews.com. Of course this is because he hasn’t reported to work because he’s been working for WWE, but there’s no way you can’t find this humorous.


    * Lots of talk behind one of the reasons that John Cena may move to Smackdown is because of the amount of time he will miss while out publicizing his upcoming film, “The Marine”. WWE may prefer a “Smackdown” guy be out of action opposed to a “RAW” guy. I think at this point, most people are preparing themselves for Cena to be moved.

    * There is some heat on Triple H for taking a shot at the ECW entity on Tuesday night. Upon entering the building at the beginning of the show, he said “Bingo!” ECW’s original home, the ECW arena, held midnight bingo during its heyday. There is heat on Triple H for saying it because there was no storyline point in doing so. It is believed that he made the comment because his wife Stephanie McMahon is not a fan of the ECW project. Some in WWE say Stephanie has been politicing once again to get Paul Heyman demoted.

    Dirt Sheet History: February 2006

    Take a trip back to a memorable timeline in sports entertainment with the most important stories reported as fact in the journalistic world of pro wrestling dirt sheets.

    Following the timeline of the last Dirt Sheet History looking back at January 2006, we get a glimpse into the top scoops from February 2006. Reminder that you can find all editions of Dirt Sheet History looking at 2004 and 2005 right here at this very link. Now enjoy February 2006!



    * Spike TV will be making an announcement regarding TNA iMPACT! new slot. The show will be moving to a Thursday night primetime slot. The show will air from 8-9PM EST, followed by two hours of UFC.

    TNA iMPACT! scored its highest rating last week when Sting made his first appearance on national television since the ending of WCW. The show received a 1.1 rating. It was watched by 1.3 million viewers, and posted a 1.0 in both young male demographics (18-34 and 18-49).


    * A booth attendant at a Boca tanning salon has told cops that she was groped by someone she identified as World Wrestling Entertainment boss Vince McMahon, according to two Boca Raton police sources.

    In a report expected to be made public this week, an attendant at Tanzabar on North Federal Highway claims McMahon, 60, came in for a routine tanning session late Sunday night. But things got a little weird.

    “The alleged victim says Mr. McMahon first showed pictures of himself naked on his cellphone,” said one source, who saw the report. “Then she says he made unwelcome advances and finally cornered her in a tanning booth and groped her.”

    Calls left for Tanzabar owner Amy Murray were not returned. An attendant at the salon said she couldn’t comment on the incident.

    McMahon, who starred in a wrestling show Monday night, has been a longtime Boca resident. He lives with wife Linda at The Excelsior on South Ocean Boulevard. Apartments there fetch in the $6 million range.

    McMahon couldn’t be reached. But, at home in Boca, Linda called the allegations “totally bizarre.” His daughter, Stephanie, also a star of wrestling specials, confirmed her dad goes to Tanzabar.

    “Yeah, he was there the other night,” she said. “I’m not aware something happened.”

    The tanning attendant’s name is being withheld until police investigate further and classify the nature of the alleged incident.


    * WWE has already begun laying out the framework for their second ECW One Night Stand PPV on June 10, 2006. Discussions on what venue they will use have included returning to the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City, where the show was held last year or moving it to somewhere in Philadelphia, PA. It is unlikely that they will go to the ECW Arena due to the fact that it looks nothing like it did due to recent renovations.

    Both Chris Benoit and Dean Malenko have expressed interest into working a match for the show, as Malenko was unable to work last year due to his wife scheduled to give birth the day of the show. If the match occurs it will be done as an Eddie Guerrero tribute match.

    Wrestlemania 30 Preview and Predictions

    Wrestlemania is this Sunday. It’s the 30th Wrestlemania. We’re all getting old.


    Giving their thoughts and predictions on what to expect from the PPV are members of the site @typicalROHfan, @TimWelcomed and @TomBlackett.

    Pre-show match: The Usos vs. Los Matadores vs. The Real Americans vs. Rybaxel for the Tag Team Championships


    Imagine how awesome this match would be if the Rhodes brothers were in Rybaxel’s place. I assume it has to do with Wrestlemania main show bonuses and the Rhodes adding credibility to the Andre Memorial but it sucks we won’t see Cody and Goldust do their thing to the fullest extent.

    As for the match, it should be fine. Everyone but Ryback and Curtis Axel is talented and the spots in this match should be cool. We love high spots and tower of dooms. I have a bad feeling Rybaxel wins it here. At least Cesaro gets to Swing 6 to 7 folks!

    Interest Level: 6/10
    Prediction: Rybaxel wins the Tag Team Championship.


    I’m not sure why they couldn’t have just built up a tag team versus tag team feud. I guess they want to fit everyone in. I will say that this is better than not seeing a WWE Tag Team Championship match at all and it is definitely better than not seeing Antonio Cesaro even though I would think this show would be the time for him to take on Swagger.

    Anyway, this should be fun. The Los Matadores gimmick is still really dumb but those two can wrestle pretty darn good. The Usos are great. Antonio Cesaro is phenomenal. I can easily ignore those other three wrestlers involved. I’m somewhat excited for this although it really doesn’t have much of a story.

    Interest Level: 7/10
    Prediction: The Usos retain.


    Is it a bummer to see The Usos and The Real Americans stuck on the pre-show? Kind of, though given the only alternative for this year’s show is being battle royal filler, maybe it’s not so bad (though I am a little sad we won’t get to see Cesaro using the giant swing to knock dudes around in that).

    I’ll echo the sentiments of how much more excited I’d be for this if the Rhodes Brothers were involved rather than Rybaxel, BUT!!! It should still have a lot of fun moments. I’m going to scream at my TV if they take a break during the middle of it like they do during most pre-show matches though.

    Interest Level: 6/10
    Prediction: The Usos retain. Continue reading

    Wrestling With Food: Big Beefy Meatballs a la Hardcore Holly

    The WWF Cookbook is a treasure trove of crazy recipes from the Attitude Era, each of which is purportedly the creation of one of the wrestlers. In Wrestling With Food, Sydney is on a mission to try cooking all of them to see if any are actually edible.


    Ah, yes. One of the three BALLS recipes in this cookbook (NOTE FROM TOM: Find out what the other two were in my Merch Table about the WWF Cookbook! DO IT NOW).I liked this one the best because there was a lot of alliteration in the title: Hardcore Holly’s Big Beefy Meatballs. Also, given it’s an Attitude Era Cookbook, it’s also just a little crass, which is always enjoyable.

    Before I begin, let me just highlight the quote that I’m assuming is supposed to represent JR’s comments on the recipe:

    “Hardcore Holly eats every two to three hours! That means he sets his alarm and wakes up to eat. Hardcore is very serious about his food, and he prepares this recipe when he’s looking for plenty of protein. He says cayenne pepper is good for your heart, too. Hardcore is as physically tough a competitor as any in the Federation, and these meatballs are primo!”

    The general excitement is great, as is the realistic claim that Hardcore Holly is waking up at least once or twice in the middle of the night to snack on some balls.

    Let’s get it going!

    The ingredients:


    2 pounds ground sirloin.

    1 onion, diced.

    1 cup soft breadcrumbs.

    2 eggs.

    1 cup tomato sauce.

    ¼ soy sauce.

    ½ to 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper to taste.

    Garlic salt to taste.

    Salt to taste.

    Freshly ground pepper to taste.

    Please note: I halved the recipe. The full list of ingredients is supposed to give you 24 meatballs. When I halved it, I somehow ended up with 18, and they were larger than 1-inch. The WWE math is once again, amazing. Continue reading
