Marshall's Little EC Review

The following post is white text on a white background.  Select with your mouse to read.  (didn't want to not spoil nothin')

Pretty much everything I was skeptical about turned out good, and there was a ton of awesome wrestling.  Shield/Wyatts was DOPE.  It was an epic, I thought it was fantastically paced and executed.  Everybody involved was really really cool, and everybody had at least one memorable moment.  Match of the night.

Batista got roundly booed and also injured.  2 points for the home team.  I know that's mean and wrong, but fuck it, I'm a just a mark.  What're you gonna do Batista, boo me?  Fucking dick.

The chamber match was really fun, it had some cool spots but wasn't too spotty, everybody came off good, and most importantly, Orton got his heat back.  Of course, Bryan's still on fire and seems to be en route to go over big at Mania, which would be nice.

I was disappointed that the Usos didn't win, I've been wanting to see them with the belts after their great matches with the Wyatts.  I didn't watch that match though, so I don't know how badly they lost.  I also didn't watch the pre-show, or Langston-Swagger, or Oneil-Young, or the impromptu diva's match.  Still, I'm up past my bedtime, so this is me signing off.

Ponco Man's Elimination Chamber Sadness

Certainly got quiet around here. Maybe I am a whiner, but boy howdy does wrestling suck. Well wrestling doesn't suck, but WWE sucks. Does it make me a mark to have depression caused by WWE? I don't even really care about hating The Miz.

Cody Rhodes & Goldust vs. Ryback and Curtis Axel (Pre-Show)
Is there a story here?

Batista vs. Alberto Del Rio
Wow...a feud based around tweets, and 2.5 appearances of Batista on tv. I hope ADR gives him a concussion.

Darren Young vs. Titus O'Neil
Thank you for doing something on Smackdown that isn't just Raw lite. I don't hate this, but so far...the ring work has been atrocious.

New Age Outlaws vs. The Usos for the Tag Team Championships
Sober Road Dogg is the best. Are You Serious? proved that. I wonder what Puppet H is doing these days.

Big E vs Jack Swagger for the Intercontinental Title
Dumb booking. Big E is an All American guy. Jack Swagger hates immigrants. Squash match???

The Wyatt Family vs. The Shield
Totally stoked for this. I bet they waste it and put it on first. It's one of two intriguing matches on the card. So many things could happen. The Shield has been booked so well that it makes me feel so sorry for the NEXUS, but really...the NEXUS was basically a bunch of "WWE looking guys" and not former ROH and CZW champions. Ambrose and Rollins get the A+.

Elimination Chamber Match
Well, since the first time Shawn Michaels entered the chamber (with brown trunks and shorter hair) and walked out the Champion...I care about an Elimination Chamber match. Maybe this is all just wishful thinking. Usually, when I think something crazy is going to happen...it doesn't.

Shinsuke Nakamura is my favorite Japanese Wrestler.
Fuego is my favorite Luchadore.
Give me Chikara...now.
Stupid John Cena being charming on Austin's podcast.
I'm actually really excited for NXT Arrival.
Who's getting the Network?
Hope things in wrestling get cool soon.....
