Daniel Bryan vs. ? for the World Title official for Wrestlemania 28




As you can see on the Official WWE Wrestlemania Page, Daniel Bryan is officially announced as cashing in his Money in the Bank briefcase against the current Smackdown World Heavyweight Champion (whoever that may be at the time).  I can't help but feel that this is still a swerve and that Bryan is either going to cash in before hand (and perhaps turn heel as his beard would suggest), or he is going to lose the briefcase in the mean time.

WWE is doing a poll for who the fans would like to see him cash in on: Mark Henry, Randy Orton, Sheamus, or Sin Cara.


The official card is now:

John Cena vs. The Rock

Daniel Bryan vs. ? (World Title)

Samoa Joe vs. Chris Sabin from TNA No Surrender 2005: Match Spotlight Series #47


If you forget how hot Samoa Joe used to be in TNA, then this is a great match to remind you.  Meanwhile, Chris Sabin was still in the process of figuring his character out; Sabin was already a good worker here, but his character wasn't as interesting as it is now.

Watching old TNA matches is a lot of fun, but it also reminds me how much potential the company had.

Rock and Cena Tag Team "Official" for Survivor Series


In a wise decision, the Rock and Cena tag team match at Survivor Series is no longer a 5v5 contest, but instead will be a 2v2 match where their opponents will be Ron Killings and The Miz.  Since this will be the main event of a PPV, I hope the WWE does a clean finish without Cena or Rock turning on each other to give the win to the Awesome Truth.  Ideally, Rock or Cena will accidentally cost the other one the match, and then Awesome Truth can get some type of rub, because they are a true team.  More likely, Cena will FU Killings, and The Rock will give him the People's Elbow to send the fans home happy and keep them strong before the match at Wrestlemania.

WWE has been a creative disaster since Kevin Nash powerbombed CM Punk at Summerslam, so I really hope they get their act together, and they make people excited for this match.  It would be a real shame if The Rock's first match in seven and a half years goes to waste.  At the moment, I have little to no faith in them to do that, but the match should be fun (if not great) all the same.

Match Spotlight Series #46: Super Smash Bros. vs. The Runaways from Beyond Wrestling World of Hurt 2011



Beyond Wrestling released a match from their show "World of Hurt."  It featured the Beyond debuts of the Super Smash Bros. (Player Uno and Player Dos) vs. The Runaways (Joe Gacy and Ryan Slater).  The Runaways were the victims of the famous Hypnotizing at the hands of the Osirian Portal viral video at the beginning of the year.

Match Spotlight Series #43: Chris Dickinson vs. Davey Vega from Beyond Wrestling Of Bosses and Busters



Beyond Wrestling has one of the most unique atmospheres that I have ever heard of: no fans are allowed in the arena for the show.  Yes.  On the surface, that is absolutely baffling to me because wrestling to me is all about creating a reaction and emotional investment in fans (who will then spend more money on the product).  However, Beyond does have people watching the shows live: the other wrestlers on the show.  Basically, it feels like Fight Club without the thirst for the blood.  And I greatly enjoyed this atmosphere; I can't wait to see more.

Match Spotlight Series #42: Anthony Stone vs. Nick Talent vs. Pinkie Sanchez vs. Jonny Mangue from Wrestlejam 7 2001



Beyond Wrestling had a showcase match at WrestleJam 7 earlier this year.  The match features Pinkie Sanchez who is a regular in Chikara, DGUSA, and Evolve.  I was not familiar with the other three competitors before watching the match.
