WWE + Dragon Age = Best video game ever? →
Since THQ and WWE are embracing the ridiculous with WWE All Stars, I wondered why not take it a step further and create a Dragon Age-inspired WWE RPG? I mentioned it to THQ’s Marcus Stephenson yesterday and he asked me how I’d do it… well, ask and you shall receive.

footnotesofwrestling: We really didn’t need the last seven weeks. We really just needed tonight. I would not be terribly surprised if this show will turn out to be more satisfying than Wrestlemania itself. Will Punk/Orton really be better than Punk’s cross-legged soliloquy, followed by Randall Keith Orton’s falter?… After a show like tonight’s, everyone’s gotta bring their...

WWE just hit a walk-off grand slam →
Absolutely, without question, a fan-friggin-tastic episode of Monday Night Raw. We all know WWE brings the goods at WrestleMania time and while the build has been shakier this year than usual, they more than made up for it tonight. There was nothing on this show that failed to deliver, every single Mania match got the hype it needed and I really can’t think of anything to complain...

Fair to Flair: WrestleMania's Mount Rushmore →
fairtoflair: Dave Lagana at I Want Wrestling raised an excellent question: If WrestleMania had a Mount Rushmore, which four wrestlers would deserve to be on it? Of course, it depends on the criteria: Mine would be great matches or moments, important matches or moments, ability to draw fans, and lack of… I was going to write something about Dave Lagana’s Mania Rushmore, but nothing...
“Straight Male Gamer” told to ‘get over it’ by... →
rosietint: bethpratt: Apparently there was just a little too much equality in Dragon Age 2, a recent game from Bioware. In-game romance is available to everyone, whether gay, straight, or anything in between, and you can have more than one romance at a time. This equality was just too much for one straight male gamer, who, after a little in-game flirting from another male character, went to...

WCW and "entertainments"
“we were the highest rated show when they sold it” Kevin Nash posted that on Twitter a few hours ago while discussing the 10-year anniversary of WCW’s demise.

fairtoflair: There’s been a lot of talk over the last week about a WWE publicist telling some blogger that WWE is “not a wrestling company.” Of course, wrestling fans took to the Internet to voice their rage, “how dare WWE turn their back on what made them famous!?” but I got a strange sense of déjà vu, I…

Chris Jericho vs. The Internet →
Over the next few days, I had a blast reading Internet feedback from fans who were livid that the WWE would treat me so dishonorably and have me exit in such a demeaning manner. Little did they know that pathetic exit was all my idea. Brilliant. There are a lot of bits from Jericho’s autobiographies that really stand out to me, his relationship with Vince McMahon should be a book...
I LOVED tonight's Raw! →
The show was light on wrestling, but every segment was engaging and nothing felt out of place… okay, except Brian Christopher, but they fixed that quickly. Just an excellent episode of Raw that FINALLY got me in the WrestleMania spirit.
