WFO AfterShock: WrestleMania XXXIII: Dead Men Tell No Tales

I’m rarely at a loss for words, and truly, after this WrestleMania… I feel like I should be after witnessing what I just did…

WrestleMania XXXIII (or 33 for those who don’t speak roman numerals), is in the books. After the dust settled, we found ourselves with a slew of new champions. (Owens, Orton, Lesnar, Naomi, The Hardys… wait, did I mention The Hardys?)

We had the end of the fairy tale, and the Last Ride of The Dead Man.

This WrestleMania will go down in the annuls of time for many reasons:

  •  Shane McMahon cementing his place, like it or not, in the WWE Hall of Fame.
  • CGI making its debut in pro wrestling.
  • The gender bending of an entrance between father and daughter.
  • A super jacked up Canadian playing an Indian get his face blasted off by a trained polar bear who plays for the New England Patriots.

Ultimately, of all the things that were seen at this WrestleMania, (including Stephanie McMahon’s glorious ass in black leather…) we saw a man do something that very few ever do: make a literal example of leaving themselves in the ring, one final time.

Make no mistake, Mark Calaway did that tonight, and in doing so he left us a legacy and a masterpiece out of a match that was not truly marked in either one of those.

Above all else, he, and he alone, elevated something that should not be into something that can never be forgotten.  Stand and pay your respects for The Dead Man, for you shall never see his like again.

At least… until WrestleMania XXXIV… maybe…

Enjoy the podcast.

W.F.O: Ep. 24 – The UnPodcast

Tonight on this episode of W.F.O: We cover WWE Night of Champions… for whatever the hell it was worth.  We cover John Cena’s win, Seth Rollins’ steal, why it is that Paige has one foot out of the door and the other one on a skateboard, why Charlotte should have won on Raw, why TNA just killed everything GFW even bothered to try and do, and why it is that WWE Creative have the same credibility level as us…

W.F.O: Ep. 20 – Zero Fucks Given

Tonight on the podcast: “The X Factor” Josh Lake decides to release his inner rage factory, joining up with “The One Man Riot Act” Michael Benningfield and going on raging and driving into the WWE and go off on how as Shay would say “they can fuck up a wet dream”.  Why Summerslam was hollow, why the Undertaker drew up crickets, why Brock Lesnar has been getting more play from Taker than he has from his wife, why NXT is going to rule the world, and why the wacky inflatable flailing arm inflatable tube man isn’t going anywhere.
