Wrestlemania 29 is in the books and I had an interesting weekend to say the least… Not sure where time went. The week since getting home has been non stop and writing a blog was next to impossible.
First of all, 7 out of 9 of my WM predictions were correct. I was unable to see the event live as I had to catch an 8 PM flight from Newark back to Knoxville but I was checking tweets and texts prior to boarding. It looked like rain was threatening but wound up ‘teasing’ everybody and the weather held up.
I’ve heard good and bad reviews about Wrestlemania 29. That’s the great thing about wrestling fans and pundits; most are passionate about how they feel and don’t mind expressing those feelings. You can’t please everybody. RAW more than made up for any disappointment the night before in my opinion and we quite possibly might have witnessed a new ‘movement’ of sorts in the way a live event is viewed. Crowd participation is always an added bonus for performers in the ring and Monday’s crowd took it to the next level!
Dolph Ziggler cashing in his MITB brief case was long overdue in many people’s opinion. I remember when Gerry Brisco recruited Dolph and he went through the ranks of OVW. I had the pleasure of knowing him a lot better during his developmental time in Tampa. Mr. Brisco has an eye for talent and I could imagine him beaming with pride when Dolph defeated Alberto Del Rio to become the World Champion…finally! Congratulations to Dolph Ziggler for his perseverance, dedication, sacrifice and hard work paying off.
