Review:

We start the show off, not with a match but the Game, The King of Kings showing up to give a Thank You to all of the fans and welcoming everyone to WrestleMania leaving the boots in the ring before our first match comes to happen.

The Street Profits vs Alpha Academy vs RK-Bro-

Riddle, Ford and Gable are the three to start and beat Gable out of the ring and all hell breaks loose as everyone each other out of the ring and we get Gable and Ford as the last two and Ford takes out everyone with a Tope over the corner and Gable takes the pile down with a Moonsault to the outside. Alpha Academy gets the tag in and takes out Riddle with Otis the legal man now and continues the assault on Riddle. The Academy goes to take care of business on Riddle until Ford comes in and becomes Gable’s target until Ford gets the tag into Angelo Dawkins and gets the hot tag in until Otis tags himself in and breaks a tag from Dawkins and Riddle claws to reach Randy and finally does.

Randy comes in at the right time, taking it to Montez Ford to the outside, Back Suplexing Ford and one for Gable as well as he comes back into the ring and both Riddle and Orton hit Hangman DDT’s. As RK Bro coil up, Alpha Academy pull the champs out of the ring and take out The Street Profits to take them apart with the Steiner Bulldog to the Profits and after more fighting, The Profits hit a Electric Chair/ Blockbuster and almost puts it away before Riddle hits an RKO to Montez Ford to stop his victory and Randy RKO’s Gable to get the victory.

Aftermath: The Profits come in, hand a Red Cup to RK-Bro and invite Gable Steveson to the ring for a solo cup and Chad Gable slaps it out of his hand, does his stupid shuuuuuush before getting some Gable on Gable violence.

Omos vs Bobby Lashley-

Lashley tries for a kick and Omos blocks it and hits some clubbing forearms to knock him down and Lashley tries to come back but gets dominated over and over again, even attempting to try to overpower Omos but failing. The only way Lashley gets the better of Omos is to step out of the way and get some strength in but each time he gets the edge, Omos gets the stength and stops Lashley’s attempts. Even as Lashley gets beaten down each time, he comes back with something up his sleeve and even gets a suplex on Omos. He spears the giant in the back to take him down again and delivers another to finish it off and take down the giant with one more Spear.

Johnny Knoxville vs Sami Zayn:

Sami starts off with a Helluva Kick and tosses Knoxville in the barricade in front of the Jackass crew and Sami investigates a little bit and gets sprayed with Fire Extinguisher and Sami gets back and hits Johnny with a cookie sheet, a crutch and trash can as Sami gets a nearfall and gets more weapons out. Sami gets more weapons out, even a Mouse Trapped Table and Knoxville grabs two trash can lids to play the symbols between the head of Sami. Johnny sets up the table in the corner and gets instantly reversed and we get some fun started with the Jackass crew and Ponis distracts Zayn until Knoxville goes for a roll up and a nearfall. Sami kicks the Partyboy under the rign and gets absolute shit kicks out of him by Wee Man, getting punched over and over and even gets fucking body slammed by Wee Man but Sami kicks him out of the ring.

Knoxville starts to get some Jackass props in, rolling a bowling ball to the nuts, kick to the nuts… the giant hand and even a tazer to the nuts as Sami Zayn goes into the Mouse Trap Table before pulling a giant mouse trap and gets the victory over Sami Zayn.

Rhea & Liv vs Naomi & Sasha vs Shayna & Natalya vs Zelina & Carmella-

Rhea and Sasha start it off with a test of Strength and after Sasha fails, they go for each others finishers for a bit until Liv tags in and the others come in to take apart the girls on the apron and Liv and Sasha go to do dueling Suicide Dives to take the match to just get it to a One on One. This match goes all over with tags, finishers and everything good and fun. Even got two Tower of Doom spots back to back is perfectly but the finish was the special moment because as Naomi and Sasha get frequent tags in to take down Carmella and we get new tag team champions and the first win at Mania for Sasha Banks.

Edge vs AJ Styles-

AJ starts to rush Edge but, Edge ducks out to play mind games with Aj before getting a Colalr and Elbow in and backs Edge into the corner, going for a wild strike and goes back to a collar and elbow but both are even until AJ gets the drop down into the Dropkick to take Edge down but Edge keeps it with the mind games and dodges each other’s move after a while, dodging a Clash and Spear before getting back to zero.

Edge starts again with the strikes and countering each other’s moves yet again until Styles gets a sliding knee onto Edge on the outside, beating him down until AJ takes Edge to the ring again, setting up a 450 Springboard and lands into the knees of Edge, taking over and beating Styles down, targeting the ribs of Styles.  Styles able to escape an abdominal stretch and gets some form of an escape as Edge grabs Styles for a Shoulder Breaker and takes the control back but hurting his leg further as Styles attempts to get something but misses a wild charge at Edge and eats the Corner Turnbuckle and Edge goes to prop a Superplex but Styles blocks it into a Suplex and starts to attack Edge quickly, getting blood flow back into Styles’ arm but Edge keeps going for the shoulder and ribs as Edge regains the control and takes some form of control but Styles blocks an apron attack and does a burst like DDT and attempts to go to the top and blocks whatever attempt AJ has but Styles fights back and lands a Torture Rack Powerbomb for a nearfall. Edge pops up after the Ushiguroshi but Edge floats over and hits the Edge-O-Cution to take AJ down.

Edge goes for a few strikes and AJ catches him with a German Suplex off a rebound and they get to a slug fest which AJ gets the better of the fight and Pele kicks Edge, going for a Calf Crusher now but Edge rolls out more and lands another Crossface to stop Styles and regains the tempo of the match and go to the apron. Edge looks to do something to the floor from the top rope but Styles comes in and stops it and AJ superplexes Edge on the apron, gets back in and actually lands the Superman 450 to get yet another nearfall. Styles readies the Phenomenal Forearm but misses. Edge runs to hit the spear but also misses into Styles hitting a Styles Clash for YET ANOTHER NEAR FALL.

Aj goes to set up another Phenomenal Forearm but, Damien Priest pops up to catch Styles off guard and Styles gets his Forearm caught with a Spear and a victory for this new Demonic Embrace.

Sheamus & Ridge Holland vs The New Day:

The pub lackeys jump The New Day instantly and pull Xavier out of the ring and the bell finally rings. Kofi hits the Trouble in Paradise, trying to get an early victory. Shaemus pulls Ridge out and Butch starts going insane to distract The New Day and… does surprisingly. Sheamus hits a Brogue Kick to stop Xavier, Ridge goes and hits a Northern Grit (Emerald Flowsion).

Pat McAfee vs Austin Theory-

Pat McAfee knocks the teeth out the little punk at least four time until Theory cheap shots Pat and takes McAfee dahn. Theory tosses Pat into the corner for Pat to dodge it, hitting a leaping European Uppercut like Shane and land a damn good Hurricanrana for a nearfall. Theory comes back and backbreaks McAfee and takes McAfee dahntan with more attacks to the lower back. As the match continues, the crowd starts to come alive for Pat and does actually get a reversal on a Suplex to stun Austin Theory. Theory gets up with the rope and rocked to the outside as McAfee grabs a headset and announces his own match and bounces Austin Theory’s head off the announce table.

As the match goes back to the ring, Pat takes too much time to the rope, going for a Swantahn Bomb but misses it. Theory goes to the top this time and Pat catches him, attempting the Superplex and Theory pushed him off, McAfee backflips off and box jumps up to land the Superplex. Pat gets a nearfall and goes to finish it with a Punt but Austin Theory starts to hit harder and goes for the A- TownDown but McAfee reverses it to take Theory dahn for the 1-2-3.

Aftermath: Pat celebrates and calls Vince into the ring and Vince tears the suit off, peeling the tie off and gets the shirt off with the Black Muscle Shirt. The match looks to start before Theory attacks Pat’s before the bell rings.

Vince McMahon vs Pat McAfee-

Vince lands two clotheslines and takes Pat down in the corner now too as Vince wipes his hands and smiles. Pat gets up every time, telling Vince lets go before Theory pulls Pat’s legs out and has him hit the post. Vince toys him, kicks over and over as Theory gets a football and has Vince parade around with it before punting the football into Pat’s ribs as Vince gets the pin. Pat should have enjoyed the first half and knew the second half would have been bad… y’know… like against the Saints.

Aftermath: Austin comes to the ring and we all know Austin can’t enjoy a McMahon’s success as Theory tries to attack Austin but gets hit with punches and Stunner. Vince realizes what is going on and Austin asks for some brews… and Vince doesn’t remember everytime Stone Cold hands him a beer and stuns McMahon (poorly… you take the move for 25 years and never can take it right). Pat is invited into the ring and drink some beers For The Stone Cold IPA Brand before getting kicked in the gut and takes by far the greatest Stone Cold Stunner sell I have ever fucking seen.

Roman Reigns vs Brock Lesnar-

Lesnar starts to undo his gloves and hamemrs away on the back of Roman, getting him to the corner and keeps beating the hell out of Roman, goes for a German Suplex but Roman slips out and lands three Belly to Belly Suplexes before lariating Roman out of the ring and following him out but hunts down Heyman for a good amount of time until Roman spears Lesnar through the barricade and Roman rolls back into the ring. Lesnar comes into the ring at the count of 9 and Reigns gets speared for a near fall. Roman goes to the corner and loads up for the Superman Punch and connects two suplex and the third gets countered into five German Suplexes until he takes Roman up for an F5 until he catches the third Superman Punch before readying the Spear, caught into the F5 and gets a nearfall. Lesnar picks Roman up for another but, rakes Brock’s eyes and spears Lesnar into the ref, setting up the championship title hit. Reigns wakes up the ref in time to get another nearfall. Roman gets himself back hyped and bounces off the ropes to spears Lesnar to the back and goes for the pin but Brock grabs the ropes. Roman goes for another spear but Lesnar catches the spear and has Reigns in the Kimora Lock. Paul Heyman comes to push the ropes into Reigns’ hand. Heyman pleas to get up and fight back and Lesnar gets one more F5 countered to get speared for us to acknowledge the Unified Champion.

Final Thoughts:

This was insanely entertaining and lived up to the hype that it was given so let’s run it down. Sasha and Vince are both no longer winless at WrestleMania with tonight, Edge seems to be getting some form of a New Brood going, Triple H introduces us to Mania with his boots in the ring, signifying that he is officially retired and McAfee lived his dream because if you tell me that whole thing wasn’t Pat being the happiest person ever in the world, you can find me in a canal with my phone dead with water damage and somehow Six-Hundred Dollars in my pocket with FuBu clothing.

This just goes to show that wrestling in 1999 reigns supreme. Cmon… Stone Cold wrestles one night and stuns a McMahon, Triple H, Undertaker and celebrity matches are some of the better matches on the card along with a Samoan coming out on top with the Main Championship? That’s 1999 in a nutshell. Great two nights, I might… I don’t know. The Newsies coming out over the New Day and the fustercluck of a Women’s Tag kind of saturated how good this night was compared to the other. I’ll give them equally 7 out of 10s.

AJ’s Thoughts: Five Potential Returns

With Trips in charge and already starting to bring back some people that didn’t work in Vince’s picture, AJ got an idea. Who else could we see on the horizon radar?

Published

With Trips in charge and already starting to bring back some people that didn’t work in Vince’s picture, AJ got an idea. Who else could we see on the horizon radar?

With everything going on with WWE, the one thing we have all been hyped about are all of these returns. Dakota Kai made her return at SummerSlam alongside Io and Bayley and now on last SmackDown, Karrion Kross and Scarlett made their returns in a big way against Drew McIntyre and showed the Hourglass to The Bloodline.

With all of that, there have been things in the pipeline saying Triple H’s foot isn’t off the pedal so these are 5 returns from either NXT, main roster or even Try-Outs that I would love to see happen with the new regime.

1. Johnny Gargano

Now this is a name that people have been saying, “Maybe Impact or MLW” but, what about a return? Gargano didn’t renew his contract, most likely to be with his family which is a valid and amazing reason, will never disrespect that. If he were to return, there would be a handful of great reasons. Maybe a singles run with the Intercontinental or United States but with Ciampa getting limelight in the main roster from RAW, what if we get a tag team reunion?

WWE is hurting for Tag Teams and what better than to scare off The Bloodline, loosen  the stranglehold of championships with some Do It Yourself action. DIY reunion could be amazing, especially with newer faces showing up to get championship aspirations like Kross and Ciampa. Want to break the hierarchy? Do It Yourself.

2. James Storm

This one is a little bit weird and off. On one hand, who doesn’t love the Tennessee Cowboy, Jimmy James Storm? On the other, he is 45 and getting some nagging injuries as of late. So why would I say Triple H should bring James Storm back and give him something for the main roster? One of the things I said for Gargano, we have a lack of something and The Usos might need to watch two things in the rearview.

Watch your Money and your Alcohol.

Beer Money showing up in WWE would be amazing in my personal opinion. The Bloodline jump Roode, someone in a hoodie or jacket comes up and jumps them to even the fight and as soon as one Uso remained in the ring, the figure goes down and the old stomping goes off and we hear “BEER…” and Roode looks around and gets hyped up and shouts, “…MONEY!”

3. Big Cass



Since his departure from WWE, he has done something I have said since they split him off from Enzo. Take him through the Kevin Nash School of How To Big Man. ROH and Impact are great examples that he actually cleaned up and worked on what he has to do to be good in the ring. He can work the microphone, he can work the ring so we got a new big boy to take on the WWE once again.

Now I could have said Enzo and Cass to rejoin but, I’m sure the antics of Enzo will get Cass in deep water along with the fact that I already made two tag team predictions, we don’t need another. Cass brings a lot to the table and was kind of unproven in WWE because he was just the big enforcer to the more charismatic Enzo. Give this man about six months in the ring and you have your next MASSIVE problem in the IC or US Championship scene or even more.

4. Bronson Reed



The big man from down under is a former NXT North American Champion. He looked to have a good push going with that championship but he got release. If you wonder where he went… he actually made a pit stop in Impact Wrestling as JONAH with the most fire theme song in recent history I swear… I will link the theme song and Trips… please. Get rights to this theme song. I will be a bigger Bronson Reed fan.

Bronson to me is the weird man in all of this but, I think with Triple H involved, he could get something going for him with a good singles champion run or a big threat to go through like a gatekeeper of sorts. Big boy with a great amount of athleticism? Can’t really hate on that considering the last time we saw athletic bigger people were Keith Lee and… what was that one guy? Sherman Tank with a Ferrari Engine…?

5. Bray Wyatt

And the last one is the obvious one in all of this. Yes… we have Judgment Day as the somewhat supernatural dark group but we know the true successor of the supernatural and that is “The Eater of Worlds”, “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt. This time around, I don’t think we will get the Jekyl and Hyde, Mister Rogers gimmick. I believe this time around we get full darkness and mayhem. We get the darkness and the theory of reverting back to your prime.

To make a refresher… Miz went back to being the cocky narcissist after fighting The Fiend. Finn turned back to the Prince and much more. With guys like Edge returning, maybe we see the return of the Heel Ultimate Opportunist, maybe a Fiend fight with AJ Styles to get the TN-AJ perhaps. Possibilities are endless and with a great mind like Wyatt for character and execution, I think Hunter will pick up the phone and Let Him In.

– There are clearly others that I could say, or maybe even didn’t think about, but hey, that’s the Chairshot way of Always Using Your Head. Those are just five returns that could happen and hopefully you read this before RAW or SmackDown and who knows if I get any of these right, maybe I missed an obvious one or maybe we get a giant signing that nobody thought possible. Let me and all of Chairshot know!

King’s Greatest Hits Of Jeff Hardy

As he battles his demons, Chris King looks at some more positive moments in Jeff Hardy’s career!

Published

on

Jeff Hardy WWE Smackdown

I’m sure by now you’ve heard the disturbing news that former WWE superstar and recent AEW signee Jeff Hardy, was arrested again for multiple charges including a DUI.  Hardy has had a hard and tragic road of recovery throughout the years in multiple wrestling promotions.

Not too long ago, Hardy walked out on WWE after they were rumored to have offered the former world champion to go to treatment for his substance abuse issues. Hardy refused and said that he was better but, as we saw the demons are still lurking and got the best of him again.

I have seen some nasty comments and even some distasteful memes about the AEW superstar and felt compelled to go against the grain. Instead of kicking a man when he’s down, I’m going to put together a greatest hits for the “Charismatic Enigma.”

Jeff Hardy & The TLC Match

Everyone can say that Shawn Michaels and Razor Ramon helped innovate the iconic ladder match and you are right, but Jeff Hardy and his death-defying stunts changed the concept of the match forever. The Hardy Boyz vs. The Dudley Boyz vs. Edge & Christian and their iconic TLC match should have their wing in the Hall of Fame. The risks all six superstars took for the adoration of the crowd could have ended all of their illustrious careers. In the words of Vince McMahon, It’s such good shit!

Jeff Hardy Earns The Undertaker’s Respect

On the July 1st, 2002 episode of Monday Night Raw, Hardy delivered the performance of a lifetime nearly winning the WWE Undisputed Championship from The Undertaker in an incredible ladder match. The young up-and-comer was faced with his greatest task yet, challenging for the most prestigious title in sports entertainment. Hardy showed that without a shadow of a doubt he deserved to be in the main event scene, but came within minutes of defeating Taker. At the time of the match, Hardy was still finding his footing as a singles competitor and earned the respect of the champion and legend.

Swanton Bomb From The Heavens

When I think of the daredevil Jeff Hardy, I can’t help but think of this one crazy-as-hell stunt. At WWE One Night Stand 2008, Hardy faced off against the juggernaut Umaga in a falls count anywhere match. This match was so insane as both superstars fought into the parking lot. Hardy is one of the craziest and bravest superstars, hit a Swanton Bomb off a damn stage truck onto Umaga. It’s one of the wildest things you’ll ever see.

Hardy Wins The WWE Championship 

In 2008, Hardy finally made his way to the main event title picture alongside partner Triple H. HHH was Hardy’s mentor in some sort of way which led to the daredevil achieving his lifelong dream of becoming WWE champion. At the 2008 Armageddon pay-per-view, Hardy would face HHH and longtime rival Edge in a triple-threat match for the title. In what was a great match between all three superstars, Hardy delivered a Swanton Bomb to Edge to win the illustrious championship.

Straight Edge Problems For Hardy

The following year, Hardy found himself in the way of young-up-and-comer CM Punk who is looking to make an example out of him. Punk had won the Money in the Bank briefcase for the second year in a row and took advantage of Hardy to win the world title. What started as mutual respect between both superstars changed drastically, when Punk started throwing jabs at Hardy for his drug and substance abuse real-life issues. Punk would form his infamous stable known as the Straight Edge Society. This is a very underrated feud and you should go back and watch it in its entirety. The promos are gold.

The Hardy Boyz Return To WWE

Both Matt and Jeff Hardy found success in multiple other wrestling promotions including Ring of Honor, and TNA during their time away from WWE. Both brothers were struggling with their vices and made poor life choices but straightened up their act over the years. In 2017, the Hardy Boyz would face longtime rivals The Young Bucks in ROH. The following night the adored tag team would make their incredible return to WWE at WrestleMania 33. Matt and Jeff would be named the final team in the Fatal 4-way ladder match for the Raw Tag Team Championships. The pop these two received was insane and very much deserved. They would go on to win the match and win the titles to capitalize on their momentum.

Jeffery Nero Hardy Makes AEW Debut

From 2017-to 2022 Jeff Hardy would find himself pigeonholed in the mid-card title picture. He would have feuds with a plethora of superstars including Samoa Joe, and Randy Orton. Orton and Hardy had a nasty Hell in a Cell match back in 2018. Earlier this year, Hardy was seen running around after the 24/7 Championship, which was disappointing to see. After being genuinely unhappy in WWE, Hardy would make his AEW debut on the March 9th episode of AEW Dynamite. Hardy would come to the aid of his brother and longtime partner.

This week news broke that Hardy had been arrested for multiple charges including a DUI. While it’s easy to beat a man while he’s down, how about we uplift and try to encourage him to get the help he needs.

As a longtime wrestling fan, I have the utmost respect for Hardy and wish him the best of luck in his battle with addiction.
