Wrestlemania 26 Results

Wow was wrestlemania 26 ever good, how good you ask well lucky for you i am here to let you know, with my now annual wrestlemania results. For those who dont know i rate each match on a scale of 1-10. Let me start off by saying i had high expectations for wrestlemania and they were all but reached so without further ado on to the results

The Miz and The Big Show defeated John Morrison and R-Truth
This match was a good way to open the show. It had some nice back and forth action that got the crowd into it. The length was a little short but overall this match didnt need to be too long. The match ended when The Big Show made a blind tag and hit John Morrison with his knockout punch as Morrison was about to do his flying chuck kick on miz. Like i said before i feel like this match served its point of making Showmiz a tag team that can beat all comers and i look forward to what they do with them moving forward. Match Rating: 7

Randy Orton defeated Cody Rhodes and Ted Dibiase jr.
This match was actually much better than i was expecting it to be. It wasnt a typical triple threat match were everyone is involved at once. They did a good job of starting it off as a 2on1 match and then from there breaking it down almost into 2 seperate singles matches. The match broke down when Dibiase went for a pin and Cody wasnt havin any of that. Then they started to go at it until they saw Randy start to get back up and then tried to go after him. Randy hit them with a ddt at the same time and Ted ran out of the ring. Orton got ready to RKo Cody but then decided a nice punt to the skull would be better after that Ted tried to hit orton with dream street which got reversed into an RKO and then orton picked up the win. Match Rating: 8

Jack Swagger defeated Christian, MVP, Kofi Kingston, Kane, Dolph Ziggler, Drew McIntyre, Shelton Benjamin, and Matt Hardy in a Money In The Bank Ladder Match
Now if the rumor is treu that this is the last MITB match at wrestlemania they did not give it a good sendoff. THis was without a doubt the worst MITB match yet. Now with that said it was sttill a pretty good match. I was however very dissapointed to see limited use of Shelton Benjamin int his match he is the reason this match is usaually as good as it is. But anyway the match ended with Christian about to grab the breifcase only to have Jack Swagger knock him off the ladder by hitting him in the face with the breifcase. Then Swagger took what felt like 20 minutes(really like 30seconds still pretty long though) to take down the breifcase and pull off the shock of the night. I must admit i never in a million years would have thought that Swagger was gonna be the guy to win it this year. So i deffinatlly give them an a for shock value here. Match Rating: 6

HHH defeated Sheamus
This match was a good solid match. The pace wasnt fast but i didnt expect it to be but at the same time it wasnt to slow either, it kept a good pace throughout. The match had some good momets were HHH was about to go for the pedigree but was countered and hit with the big boot. Sheamus went for the pin but was only able to get a 2 count. Then Sheamus hit HHH with another big bot but was spent so he wasnt able to make the pin. Then as they are both getting up HHH hits a pedigree from out of nowhere to score the win in what was a solid match. Sheamus deffinatlly proved he has potential and HHH helped him look really good in this match so cudos to the both of them. Match Rating 8

Rey Mysterio defeated CM Punk
This match was very good and of all the matches that had happend up to this point was deffinatlly the best match. The only complaint i had was i felt it was a little to short i feel like they should have gotten another 5 minutes or so. But none the elss this match was still good otherwise. It had a lot of fast paced back and forth action. The match ended with CM Punk getting ready to hit mysterio with the go to sleep mystreio was able to counter and push punk into gallows and also into position for the 619 which rey hit and then was able to hit the splash and pick up the win. Like i said good match that if given maybe another 5 minutes or so could have been match of the night. Match Rating: 9

Bret Hart defeated Vince McMahon in a No Holds Barred Lumberjack Match
This match was what i thought it was going to be about 10 minutes of Bret beating the shit out of Vince. The match started with vince saying he bought the Hart family and had them in his pocket only for Bret to say that the Hart family told Bret and he told them to double cross Vince so that wrestlemania 26 would be known as thenight Bret screwed Vince. The match was basically Bret beating vince up. Vince leaves the ring and gets beat up by the Hart family. Vince gets a crobar and fends off the Hart family only to get back in the ring and have Bret beat Vince up with the crowbar. THen a chair gets brought into the ring and Bret deides to hit Vince with it about 100,000 times. Then Bret puts vince in the sharpshooter and wins. I have to admit as much as this match sucked seeing Bret apply the sharpshooter again was awsome and brought me back to my childhood for a minute, but it didnt help this match in the good factor. Match Rating: 3

Chris Jericho defeated Edge to retain the World Heavyweight title
I must admit i had high expectations for this match adn it lived up to them. THis match was phenominal and was one of the best of the night. Jericho winning the title was a small surprise that i was happy with. The match had alot of back and forth action that ended with Jericho hitting Edge in the face with the belt and only gets a 2 count. THen he hits Edge with the code breaker and retains the title. THis match was very solid and the after beat down that saw Edge spear Jericho off of the anounce table through the litle baricade they have was pretty awsome and even added to this match that was already great before that spot. Match Rating: 9

Vickie Guerrero, Michelle McCool, Layla, Maryse, and Alicia Fox defeated Beth Phoenix, Gail Kim, Kelly Kelly, Eve, and Mickie James
WHAT THE FUCK. This match could not have been serious was the WWE kidding me with this shit. Although through my pissed offness i have to give this match credit because it did the one thing i didnt think was gonna be possible that night, it was worse then BRet vs. Vince. seriouslly this match was not even serious and was an embarrassment to Wrestlemania. THis match had soooooo many messed up moves it wouldnt have been good for a raw. THe worst part was after Vickie hit the ABSOLUTE WORST frog splach i have ever seen she then went to pin Kelly Kelly and pulled her shoulders to high so the ref had to not wait to finish what could possible be the worst match in Wrestlemania history. Match Rating: 1

John Cena defeated Batista to become the new WWE champion
Wow this match was soooo much better than i was expecting. I was very impressed with this match. In the match there were many reversals including a ddt were cena landed almost right on his head and batista didnt tough him for a minute and i thought we had another owen hart steve austin incident. But that thankfully wasnt the case as cena seemd to be okay and finished the match strong getting big Dave in the STF and made him tap out. THis match was great it wasnt to long or to short and it was just overall great. Match Rating: 9

The Undertaker defeated Shawn Michaels to go 18-0 at Wrestlemania and ending Shawn Michales career
Let me start off by saying sorry Edge Jericho sorry Cena Batista you guys put in a hell of an effort but this match like the one they had last year was the match of the night and will be the match of the year. This match was very bitersweet and i feel Jerry Lawler said it best at ringside during the match "you dont want to see the streak end but at the same time you dont want to see Shwan Michales career and either". Very true king very true. This match was phenominal and i feel like if it truly shwan last match which i beleive it was it was a great way to go out. The match had some great movies including a moonsault from were shawn was on the turnbuckl eand hit the Undertaker through the spanish anounce table. The only downside in this match is the fact that The Undertaker more than likelly actually hurt his leg. The match ended with Undertaker hitting a tombstone only to have shwan kick out causing the undertaker to yell at shwan to stay down. Shawn wouldnt do that and gave the Undertaker the old thumb across the throat and then gave him a nice little slap to the face causing the undertaker to get pissed and hit shwan with another tombston this time getting the win and ending Shawn's career. As sad as i am to see shawn go (and trust me i am very sad about this he was my favorite wrestler ever and also just the greatest wrestler ever) i glad to see Shwan going out while he is still on top Im glad Shawn wasnt one of those guys who keeps wrestling even though he doesnt have it anymore cough ric flair, hulk hogan cough. Like they say all good things must come to an end (like this post lol) but i am really glad to see the WWE do the righ thing and let Shawns lat match ever be the last match of the night. Match Rating: 10

overall i gave this years Wrestlemania an overall grade of 70/100 or a c. This would have been better if it wasnt for that stupid divas match. But this years wrestlemania was deffinatlly better than last years mania. All 3 main events were phenominal and some matches were better than i thought. But that bring this years wrestlemania to an official close (thats right people wrestlemania is fully over till i right my results page) im thinking within the next day or two im gonna rank al the wrestlemanias from worst to best so be sure to check that out.

Wrestlemania 26

Well its that time of year again the time of Wrestlemania. To get myself ready for wrestlemania i have been watching all of the wrestlemanias of past going backwars(i have no idea why im going backwards it just kinda happened). Im actually watching Wrestlemania 17 right now the best wrestlemania. Now Wrestlemania is a special time of year for wrestling fans. Each fan has their favorite mine being 24 for obvious reasons(I was there) but other people have their own favorites. Wrestlemania has made some of the best memories in Wrestling. Whether it is seeing Hulk Hogan pick up and slam Andre the Giant in front of 93,000 fans at wrestlemania3. Or seeing the Ultimate Warrior actually have a good match with Hulk Hogan at Wrestlemania6. Maybe its seeing Shawn Michaels electrify the audience with a magnificent ladder match at Wrestlemania10. Mayeb its seeing Shawn Michaels acheive his life long dream of being the WWE champion at wrestlemania12. Maybe its Stone Cold Steve Austins shocking heel turn at wrestlemania17. Or maybe its seeing The Rock and Hulk Hogan go one on one at wrestlemania18. Or even Ric Flairs emotional last match at wrestlemania24. All of these and many more is a small part of what makes wrestlemania so legendary. THis year is the 26th anual wrestlemania and i feel like we will witness another Wrestlemania moment. Now on to my picks for the show

John Morrison and R-Truth vs. The Miz and The Big Show for the unified Tag Team Titles. Im not sure if this match will actualy be on the ppv or if it will be the pre mania match they have for the live audience. If it is on the Wrestlemania card it will more than likelly open the show. If given enough time this could be a good match. John Morrison could perhaps be the best wrestler in the WWE right now while the Miz has been very impressive lately. Overall though i dont see Showmiz losing their titles anytime in the near future so they are my pick to win this match. WINNER: The Miz and THe Big Show

Christian vs. Kofi Kingston vs. Shelton Benjamin vs. Evan Bourne vs. Kane vs. Jack Swagger vs. Drew Mcyntire vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. MVP vs. Matt Hardy in a Money In The Bank Ladder Match. Now the MITB match is almost always the best match of the night it is always a high octane event. Im looking forward to this match. When it comes to MITB Shelton Benjamin never dissapoints he always steals the match somehow he is truly MR. MITB. Its just to bad that the WWE doesnt like to push him. Now when i look at possible winners 3 people come to mind. One is Christian because out of everyone in this match he os the best wrestler and most deserving of winning. Kofi Kingston is another person because the last few months they have been giving him a nice well deserved push, and finally Drew Mcyintire because they seem to be very high on him right now. But when i annalyze all the options i feel the best pick is Christian and that is who i will go with as my pick. WINNER: Christian

CM Punk vs. Rey Mysterio where if Rey Loses he must join the straight edge society. On paper this should be a good match maybe even match of the night. But you have to take history into effect on this one. Most of Rey's wrestlemania matches end rather quickly minus one or two of them. Cm PPunk has only been in MITB matches. So he hasnt really gotten over the wrestlemaia jitters. But i hope history doenst play a factor and we get a good match. Now when i look at which of these 2 guys could win it seems pretty obvious that they want to keep up this rivalry past wrestlemania and the best way to do that is to have Rey win so that is my pick. WINNER: Rey Mysterio

HHH vs. Sheamus This match is interesting for a few reasons. One its the first match since wrestlemania 17 that had HHH wrestle in a match that wasnt for either the WWE OR Wolrd Heavyweight titles. Now Sheamus has been given the biggest push in WWE history he got to win the WWE title within 3 months of starting in the WWE. Alot of people say that he only got this push because he is HHH's work out partner maybe thats true maybe its not who knows. I think Sheamus is pretty talented but not sure if he is ready for a high profile match this ealry in his career. Which is why I think HHH will win this match. WINNER: HHH

Randy Orton vs. Cody Rhodes vs. Ted Dibiase jr. This match could and up being better than most people think. All 3 of these guys are talented. Orton in my opinion is one of the best wrestlers in the WWE right now. At the same time Cody and Ted are deffinatlly the future of the buisness. So this match is the whole the now vs. the future. I still feel like Cody is gonna end up helping Orton win this match starting up Teds face run. WINNER: Randy Orton

Bret Hart vs. Vince McMahon in a No Holds Barred match. This match i am not looking forward to for many reasons. One both of these men are over 50 years old. Vince is over 60 years old. Bret cant take any bumps because of a stroke he had back in 2003. He cant get hit in the head ebcause of the storke. So that means that this match is pretty much gonna be Bret beating the shit out of Vince. WINNER: Bret Hart

Shawn Michales vs. The Undertake The Streak vs. The Career. Now its not actualy being called "the" career but when you look back at wrestling no one has had a better career than Shawn Michaels. This is the rematch to last years classic that was not only the match of the night, not only the math of the year, but perhaps the best match at a wrestlemania. Maybe not Shawns best but deffinatlly in his top5 and it could have been The Undertakers best mania match. Now when picking this match the safe pick is to not go against the streak. But on the otherhand if anyone is gonna break the streak Shawn is the guy to do it. However i am gonna stay with the safe pick ans say the streak goes to 18-0. WINNER: The Undertaker

John Cena vs. Batista for the WWE title. THis match was actually supposed to happen at last years mania but batista was hurt so they had to put it off for another time. THis match is a rematch from their decent match at summerslam 2008. In that match though batista accidentally broke John Cena's neck. I feel like this match will not be as good as their match from summerslam for a few reasons. One is Batista has seemed to be lazy latelly and doesnt really put his all into his matches anymore. Also because of that Cena as good as he is cant carry batista to a good match. Now when it comes to my pick im feeling Cena because i feel like they want to have a Cena Btista3 and the only way to do that is have Cena win this sunday. WINNER: John Cena

Edge vs. Chris Jericho for the World Heavyweight title. This is the match that i am looking forward to the most. I feel like this match is the favorite for match of the night. Both of these men are perhaps the best in the company so haviing them wrestle each other is a good idea. The back story has been great as well going into it. Everything about this match just says classic and i hope thats what we get. I feel like we will see Edge get his "revenge" on Jericho for moking him while he was hurt. WINNER: Edge

I cant wait for this years Wrestlemania whether i get my picks right or not it doesnt matter to me jyst as long as the matches are good i will be happy. If any of you have your own picks for mania feel free to leave them for me. For those of you who watch i hope you enjoy because i know if its as good as I'm hoping I will enjoy this years WRESTLEMANIA.

Okay its once again oscar season and that meens time for me to make my now annual oscar picks. This past year was a great year for movies oscar nominated and not oscar nominated just an overall good year. Okay so like last time im going to be picking the big 5 thats best picture, best actor, best actress, best supposrting actor, best supposrting actrss. Now usually i try to see most of the oscar nominated movies but i havnt done that yet so im going to have to go with what i have seen and from other award shows. First we have best supporting actress, Okay so the nominees are Penolope cruz for nine, vera farminga for up in the air, monique for precious, maggie gylenhall for crazy heart, and anna kendrick for up in the air. Now i havnt seen any of theese movies yet but have heard good things about all of them (especially up in the air) my pick for this category is gonna have to be monique just based on the way eveyone has been talking about her performance plus she won the golden globe and the sag for best supporting actress which usually means oscar so she is going to be my pick, my backup pick is gonna be vera farminga for up in the air everyone says she is the surprise pick for the oscar and i think they could be right so she is my backup pick. Next is best supporting actor the niminees are matt damon for invictus, stanley tucci for the lovely bones, woody harralson for the messanger, christopher waltz inglorious basterds, and christopher plummer for the last station. with these the only movie i have sen is inglorious basterds which was a good movie and christopher waltz is my pick to win the oscar. he was great in that movie and deserves all the awards he has won so far (golden globe and a sag) so i deffinatlly think he is going to win the oscar this year. my back up pick for this category is going to be matt damon ive heard that this is his best performance ina movie since the departed and he was ridiculous in the departed so he is my back up pick. Next is best actress the nominees are sandra bullock for the blind side, hellen mirran the last station, meryl streep for julie and julia, carey mulligan for an education, and gabourey sidibe for precious. My pick for this one while it was difficult for me to make is gonna be sandra bullock for the blind side. Everyone who talks about this says that the blind side is sandra bullocks erin brackavich(that was the movie that got julie roberts her fisrt oscar and really made her an established actress) plus with all the awards she has won she is definatlly my pick. My backup is gabourney sidibe for precious from what ive hearsd when you watch her in this movie there is 100% chance you will cry afterwards so thats pretty powerful and is why she is my backup pick. next is best actor the nominees are jeff bridges for crazy heart, george clooney for up in the air, morgan freeman for invictus, colin firth for a single man, andjeremy renner for the hurt locker. Out of all these movies i have only seen the hurt locker( great movie by the way) and i must admit jeremy renner was great int hat movie and deffinatlly deserves all the praise he has been getting from it but i dont think eh will win my pick is jeff bridges for crazy heart. he has won all the awards for his performance in it already so why not round it out with the oscar. my backup pick is still not jeremy renner even though he was great it is george clooney from what ive heard about clooney from up in the air is that he was destined to win the oscar until crazy heart came out in theaters earlier than expected so that is the main reason he is my back up pick. Finally the big one the reason people stay up late to see which movie will win best picture. This year for some reason there are 10 movies nominated isntead of the usual 5 i have no idea why but that is what they are doing the nominees are Avatar, The hurt locker, Inglorious basterd, UP, up in the air, a seious man, precious, district9, the blind side, and an education. Now ive only seen two of the 10 nominated movies being the hurt locker and inglorious basterd (both great movies highly recomended the hurt locker was a little beter) now im probablly one of about 100 people left in the country who havnt seen avatar but i havnt yet and still despretlly want to. My pick for best icture is Avatar from what ive heard it really was the best movie of 2009 and it also won all the awards so far. My backup pick is the hurt locker that movie was so good and so intense that it kept you on the edge of your seat the whole time you were watching the movie it was great the acting the directing everything about the movie was great just from what ive heard avatar is a little better which is why avatar is my number one pick with the hut locker being my backup. WEll i hope i do as good if not better than last year as last year i got 4.5 out of 5 right pretty good this year im hopin for 5 out of 5 but you never no there is always a surpise winner at the oscars. All i no is they should be great and i cant wait for this sunday. alek baldiwin and steve martin will be hosting this years event(i wonder if they realize that this isnt saturday night live theyre the 2 people who have hosted that more than anyone incase peopel dont get my little joke) they should be funny and it should be a grea night i might go see one of the movies this weekend before the oscars themselves well see but to those of you who watch i hope you enjoy and if you have picks of your own leave them for me in the comment section and ill tell you how wrong you are if you disagree with one of my picks just kidding.
