Bruiser Brody was awesome! That dude work bloody like no one else. I remember many a Saturday night as a kid spent watching wrestling from the Sportatorium in Dallas. The Von Erichs, Bruiser Brody, The Great Kabuki (and his green mist), The Missing Link, The Freebirds, and so many more. Brings back some really good memories...

The matches at mania were kinda weak - but I knew they would be before we went. It didn't matter though cos being there, amongst 80,000 wrestling nerds was enough to make it an amazing event. The Taker vs Punk match was amazing to see live too.

Shame about the $10 beers.

Here's a fun little story. It's not exactly about wrestling but it involves a wrestler. So here goes. As some of you know I work at a sports arena and opera house. Part of my job involves setting up the rooms for the various talent. On a recent Monday night raw I had to set up The Rocks dressing room last minute. Only had like an hour to move all the old furniture out, set the new furniture up, detail the room, and get his requests in. Got finished as he was walking in the room. Talked for a min and was on my way. He was a pretty nice guy. Not even 15 mins later I get a call on my radio that his dressing room needed to be cleaned. Was kind of concerned as I knew it was cleaned thoroughly. When arriving he wasn't there. In the bathroom however was a pile of vomit. So now I jokingly say, I cant smell what the Rock is cooking, but I cant you what he ate.

Went to Monday Night Raw in Brooklyn the other night courtesy of a friend who is friends with CM Punk and got me some great seats after FEDEX lost a pair of tix I purchased. Anyway had a great time and the crowd was really into it. Psyched for Daniel Bryan vs John Cena at Summerslam. YES YES YES!

Great crowd on Monday and a great show. Ziggler vs. ADR and Jericho vs. RVD were great matches, plus Heyman/Punk segment and Cena picking Bryan.

It's awesome to see Bryan getting such huge pops from the crowd these days. I've been following him since his American Dragon days in IWA. Now if only they could put the belt on him and get a feud going with Chris Hero(Kassius Ohno in NXT). Their matches from 2006ish were phenomenal.

Sting might be coming to WWE. Still in rumor stage, but man that would rock.

The WWE roster is so great at the minute - Bryan, Punk, The Shield, Ziggler, RVD, the Wyatts.

It's just a shame they don't seem to know the meaning of the word 'creative'.

Cena can just drymount right off.

Sting and Warrior need to team up and come back to WWE. Only thing that would get me watching wrestling again.
