WWE WrestleMania 37 Cesaro

Much like you, Bodeen watched WrestleMania Saturday. What did he consider the Top 5 Moments? The answers are right inside!

After a long wait and a small scare after a rain delay, it was finally time for the crowds to return to WWE, as we saw the first night of WrestleMania 37 in front of a live crowd. However, in front of a live crowd, what superstars stood out on the first night of the showcase in the immortals. Let us find out, as we take a look at the top 5 moments that stood out on night one of WrestleMania.

5. Omos makes his WrestleMania debut against The New Day 

When Omos made his first RAW appearance outside of RAW underground, many wondered when Omos would make his in-ring debut. These questions would be answered as AJ Styles and Omos challenged Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston for the Raw Tag Team Titles.

During the match, AJ would take the majority of the punishment from Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston with the Phenomenal One getting little offense in. However, after AJ tagged in Omos the tide of the match would quickly change as Omos dominated The New Day.

Omos would have no reaction from the dropkicks and dives from The New Day, with Omos then throwing around both men. With Omos pinning The New Day, making AJ Styles and Omos the new Raw Tag Team Champions.

4. Bad Bunny surprises The Miz and John Morrison on his WrestleMania debut

When Bad Bunny helped Damian Priest eliminate John Morrison and The Miz at the Royal Rumble, it was the start of a feud that fans would have divided interests in as many fans hated the idea of Bad Bunny having a match against The Miz at WrestleMania. However Bad Bunny would shock fans and silence critics as he put on an amazing WrestleMania performance and without a doubt, had the best celebrity match in history.

Despite being the inexperienced one, Bad Bunny would tag himself in early in the match and would surprise The Miz with a series of moves. The Miz would then come back, grounding Bad Bunny and separating him from Damian Priest. Despite The Miz’s and John Morrison’s best effort, Bad Bunny would get the hot tag into Damian Priest, with Priest changing the match.

Late in the match, Bad Bunny would hit a crossbody on both men and would then hit a Canadian Destroyer outside the ring for a huge reaction from the crowd. This would leave The Miz by himself against Priest and Bad Bunny, with Bad Bunny pinning The Miz after hitting a crossbody from the top rope while Priest held Miz an electric chair position.

3. Bobby Lashley and Drew McIntyre open the delayed show

After more than a year of wrestling without a live crowd. Drew McIntyre and Bobby Lashley had a huge job in delivering a good performance in the first match in front of a live crowd as they opened WrestleMania. Both men would deliver a great hard-hitting match, despite the ring and outside area in the match with Bobby Lashley retaining his WWE Championship to the surprise of many.

Both men would trade punches and slams early in the match, with Lashley getting the upper hand, throwing him around the outside of the ring, into the barricades, however after Lashley smashed his shoulder on the ring post, McIntyre would target Lashley’s arm throughout the match and even locked countered a spinebuster into a kimura lock, with Lashley just getting to the ropes.

Late in the match, Drew McIntyre would attempt to hit the Claymore, only for MVP to distract him. This would make Drew miss the Claymore, allowing Bobby Lashley to put McIntyre in the Hurt Lock. Despite fighting for more than a minute, McIntyre did not have enough to escape the Hurt Lock as he eventually passed out in the hold, making Bobby retain his WWE Championship.

 2. Cesaro hunts for his WrestleMania moment against Seth Rollins 

It almost seems impossible that Cesaro had never had a singles match at WrestleMania. Despite being one of the most reliable competitors in WWE, the Swiss Superman has found himself in the tag division during WrestleMania season most of the time. So after more than 5 years of waiting, Cesaro would finally get his chance to get his big WrestleMania against Seth Rollins as both men stole the show in a match that was incredible to watch from start to finish

Cesaro would waste no time in getting an advantage early in the match, upper-cutting Seth Rollins the second the bell rang. However, Rollins would quickly turn the tide, hitting Cesaro with a buckle bomb to turn the tide in the match and give himself the momentum Rollins would then dominate Cesaro throughout the match, as Cesaro attempted the Swing throughout the match, only for Rollins to counter the swing multiple times.

Rollins would continue to push Cesaro, only for Cesaro to come back and hit the Neutralizer for a near-fall. Cesaro would then attempt another Neutralizer, only for Rollins to reverse, eventually kicking Cesaro in the back of the neck. Rollins would then attempt a stomp, only for Cesaro to watch Rollins with an uppercut, Cesaro would then swing Rollins 23 times and hit a Neutralizer to pin Rollins for his WrestleMania moment.

1. Bianca Belair and Sasha Banks main event WrestleMania for the SmackDown Women’s Championship    

Despite the build for the SmackDown Women’s Championship feeling boring and meaningless, everyone knew the second the bell rung, both women would make everyone forget about the slow build with their incredible talent. Sasha and Bianca did a great job in main eventing the first night of WrestleMania as they told a story about’s Sasha’s experience facing Bianca’s raw talent.

Both women would start off the match evenly, with either woman able to grab a true advantage. Eventually, Binaca got the upper hand after catching a suicide dive attempt from Banks. However, Banks would use her experience to get back into the match, using Binaca’s hair to control her throughout the match.

This would later backfire on Banks, as Belair hit Banks with a brutal hair whip, allowing her to hit the KOD for a huge pop and a special moment in what was a great way to close off night one of WrestleMania 37.

These were my top 5 moments from night one of WrestleMania 37. What were your top 5 moments and what did you think of Bobby Lashley retaining his WWE Championship against Drew McIntyre? Let us know in the comments down below.

King: Plotting The Return Of Randy Orton To WWE

Chris King is back with his look at the best scenario to bring Randy Orton back to WWE, and the perfect opponent for his first big match back.

Randy Orton 4

Chris King is back with his look at the best scenario to bring Randy Orton back to WWE, and the perfect opponent for his first big match back.

I wanted to bring everyone’s attention to a superstar that’s being overshadowed right now, ‘The Viper’ Randy Orton. After RKBRO lost the Raw Tag Team Championships to The Uso’s, Orton vanished from the company. There was speculation about his serious back injury and, it wasn’t until The Viper’s wife herself posted a candid picture of Orton after successful surgery.

While the focus in WWE right now is either on The Bloodline, Bray Wyatt and Uncle Howdy, or the returning Cody Rhodes, I felt this was a good time to start plotting The Viper’s return to WWE.

Randy Orton’s Return to WWE

On the Raw-After-Mania ‘The American Nightmare’ opens the show after a tough battle over Roman Reigns to win the WWE Championship. Rhodes with tears in his eyes is giving an emotional promo about his family’s legacy, and how much this title means to him. The WWE Universe is chanting “You Deserve It,” and out comes Finn Balor flanked by The Judgement Day.

‘The Prince’ starts by congratulating the new champion for dethroning ‘The Tribal Chief’ but, now he wants his title shot. Rhodes being the resilient hero accepts Balor’s challenge for the main event. The American Nightmare and The Prince are putting on a clinic of a match, delivering multiple finishers but unable to put the other away. Judgement Day starts to interfere when Orton’s music blares throughout the arena. Orton takes out the heels and helps his former protege. Rhodes capitalizes and hits Crossroads for the 1.2.3.

The former Legacy members are celebrating and embracing with a hug as Rhodes goes to raise his newly-won title. In the blink of an eye, The Viper strikes and takes out Rhodes with an RKO Outta Nowhere! The champion is knocked out as Orton hoists the title above his head while trash-talking his now rival. Orton violently throws Rhodes out of the ring and delivers a nasty-looking draping DDT onto the floor.

The Build–And Culmination–of Randy Orton vs. Cody Rhodes

Orton stares giving 2009 vibes as Rhodes’ head raises, so The Viper runs and delivers a punt kick. WWE officials come out and break things up and the champion is stretchered out of the arena. The show closes with Orton grinning over the destruction he has caused to his former protege. Over the next few months, Orton and Rhodes enter into an extremely personal rivalry over the coveted prize. We finally make it to SummerSlam where both men agree to raise the stakes and do war inside HELL IN A CELL!!!!

This is how I would book The Viper’s return to WWE. If you feel like this should be written differently, I’d love to hear your thoughts!

AJ’s Phenomenal Opinion: Bray Wyatt

So everyone loves Bray’s return right? Right? Well the McDonald’s Sprite spicy opinions of AJ…may feel differently.

Published

on

Well, just because my work schedule changed, doesn’t mean I’m not going to drop some opinions of mine, of which, I haven’t done too bad with. I got Three out of Five for my returns right a few months back and this is going to be about the last entry on that previous list. I knew for a fact that Bray Wyatt would return to the WWE in some way shape or form and time for some… controversy.

As my favorite ratings winner of 83 Weeks once said, Controversy Creates Cash and boy HOWDY… Do I have something to get off my chest here so sit back, order some Chairshot Merch and lets get on with Adam’s… Rants for a bit.

Initial Thoughts

Bray coming in and making a return to the WWE was an inevitability. Death, Taxes and I guess WWE Returns are always guaranteed anymore and maybe we could get some new creativity with a supernatural gimmick. Bray has always had that supernatural to him ever since he had the Wyatt Family in Erik Rowan, the late Luke Harper and in the end, Braun Strowman. The Wyatt’s had a control like no other and were beloved for a moment in the WWE.

Bray did a lot to make sure things were in motion but for some reason any massive feud he had, he failed. Following a bunch of injuries to the rest of his family and even releases later on, he seemed to at least get some traction going for him. WWE Champion, somehow got Randy Orton with him, Universal Championships and got those big match wins that eluded him in the Wyatt Family beginnings. Let me also say this as well, I actually liked the Firefly Funhouse Match with Cena as a “This is Your Life” match of sorts. I was tickled and entertained… Then much like Bray in character, something changed.

Dark and Terrible Lurk with Fiends

We had a lot to figure out during the Pandemic. Like A WHOLE HELL OF A LOT. Through it all though, WWE figured it out but the person that helped these types of ideas, soured them drastically. Lets go back to the WWE Championship run in 2017. Randy Orton won the Royal Rumble that year and he wouldn’t betray Bray, right? Well he does and Mania for the two is set, Orton against Wyatt for the WWE Championship and it was… terrible. Random images of maggots and decay (Not the IMPACT Stable) popping up into the ring as the match goes on and Randy still wins. Through head game attempts, Bray comes up short in the big match moment. That’s odd but maybe it will be a bigger pictu– and Jinder Mahal wins the Championship. Okay.

Wyatt returns as this Mister Rogers character and has a darkness inside of him with The Fiend. Now we had this amazing theory or maybe that’s what happened but the story was, anyone The Fiend fought, they revert back to their best selves. The Miz returned to be the A Lister, the guy who grabs a microphone that you love to hate. Finn Balor doesn’t have the Demon Gimmick anymore because after his loss, he’s the Prince again. The cocky guy that walks around because he is the best, he gives no care in the world. Seth Rollins, who he took the WWE Universal Championship from, went from a dorky sweetheart back to the asshole taking every opportunity that he could get because he’s that much of a weasel and when he lost… He lost to Goldberg. The one guy that has been the same since 1997. Drums, Pyro Bath, Spear, Jackhammer, “Who’s Next?” and during that time, he sucked at points. One of those Rollins matches was in a Hell In A Cell match, the red cage with the red lighting. Match ending with a Stoppage from the referee… INSIDE OF A HELL IN A CELL (I think Sean Waltman said it best… Why did the match stop? It’s supposed to be Hell?) and it’s one of the rare times that I agreed with wrestling’s favorite Uncle… That was Negative Stars for a match.

After Goldberg, he didn’t have a commanding presence. He recruited Alexa Bliss who was already over whether she was a Heel or Face and made everything so unbelievably… boring. Alexa had to carry that idiotic demon gimmick and doll, not having anything really supernatural. Just some wrestling and Brock Lesnar cleaning up everything faster than a Chop Shop in main events and segments. He tried to return and make his grand return, beating the Universal Champion Braun Strowman at Summerslam just to falter a literal week later to Roman Reigns, who proceeded to never look back from that win. Bray gets fired after and no more supernatural ideas. Undertaker isn’t around really and retires, Kane is a mayor. Paul Bearer is no longer with us and everything is just… normal.

Wyatt’s Six (Reasons I Tune Out)

In 2022, Vince retires seemingly from everything and Triple H is at the helm, could he bring balance to everything? He makes a bunch of returns that people love seeing. Johnny Gargano, Dakota Kai, Tegan Nox, Bronson Reed, Dexter Lumus just to name a few and of course, the big one that everyone wanted. Bray Wyatt.

Bray makes this heartfelt return and everything seems great. We get him as him, he makes this weird build to a Wyatt 6, assuming we think it’s the Firefly Funhouse and he’s just talking, building. Alright well who is going to be these six figures because they are more than just puppets this time around. A masked man named Uncle Howdy that people think is Vincent Marseglia or maybe a bearded Bo Dallas who is Bray’s real life brother and he……… pops in and out to confuse people. Okay… (1)

Alexa might return to the 6 because of all the segments and gets darker and a heel. Alright that is perfectly fine but, WHY IS VINCENT DALLAS HERE AGAIN TO JUST INTERFERE WITH RANDOM THINGS? Okay… fine. (2) Alexa has a Women’s Championship match against Bianca Belair, that will make sense of thi– it’s a clean finish… Why is it clean? No Howdy, No Wyatt just a random VHS tape like I’m watching The Ring about her being dark after the match. Okay…… (3)

Oh Wyatt finally gets a feud for his return. I almost forgot about that! Who will be this first victim? LA Knight.

…Okay…… (4)

Maybe this will be good. They are both great on the microphone, maybe Bray has new moves that he can do and I know all too well how good LA Knight is, I have been an Eli Drake/Shaun Ricker fan for years. This could be a great match that they have, they announced it for the Royal Rumble so it’s going to be big and it’s a… Pitch Black Match presented by Mountain Dew.

O…okay…… (5)

The Royal Rumble is upon us, the Men’s Rumble starts the show and we all have adrenaline in our soul for it and now is this weird Pitch Black Match and it’s not a cinematic match. It’s in the ring, No Count Outs and No Disqualifications. LA Knight comes out in his iconic Yellow Attire and Wyatt is talking… with a mask on. The lights turn off and the ropes are glowing a neon greenish-yellow… with an announce table spot that… has Nickelodeon Slime inside of it when they break it? Okay fine… I knew the match was going to be dumb and gimmicky from the Mountain Dew Sponsorship. Bray wins, yay. LA Knight comes back with a Kendo Stick and… we get invulnerable Bray again… they don’t hurt. Lets go to this crash pad and Bo Marseglia shows up from somewhere and just elbow drops him from maybe fifteen to twenty feet with pyro and the Firefly Funhouse Puppets appear at the top, to watch a fire… And there is number six…

Actual Thoughts on Current Bray Wyatt, Post Rumble

I absolutely hate it.


This was awful. You build whatever insignificant thought process of the Wyatt 6 has going for it when Uncle Howdy does the best Cap’n Shane O elbow drop for a hellfire effect. At least the pyro was better than the AEW Explosion Match I guess…

Regardless, how does LA Knight come out of all of this moving forward? He lost an idiotic gimmick match and looks presumed dead. This just makes me think that whoever in whatever interview said Bray Wyatt is a creative mastermind needs to put whatever they have down before we hear about their T.O.D. posted somewhere. This Pitch Black Match is somehow worse than that Rollins Hell in a Cell Match and that takes talent. At least a good amount of alcohol lulled that from my brain but this made me remember that and enjoy the thought of that match happening with its finish. The best way I can picture how this was pitched was Burnt Dogshit, wrapped in a Kerosine Blanket with… sorry had to look at what I wrote, not putting that on websites but… people saw a Creative Quesadilla and when we got the actual product, it gave Salmonella poisoning and E Coli at the same time.

I really don’t want to see another Bray Wyatt match… again. Whoever gave him creative, take it away immediately. As much steam as Bray Wyatt gets in promos or possible matches in the past, the only steaming he gets at the end, is steaming piles of shit. You can say, he’s getting paid millions where I’m a little troll on the internet with typing power and I really don’t care but to me, Triple H… you finally got your first failing grade with something in your leadership role in WWE.
