TEN YEARS AFTER: With WrestleMania 32 coming up tomorrow, I thought it might be cool to look at how WWE has changed with ten years of perspective and see if there are any similarities between then and now. Injuries and careers ending changed the game. In 2006, it’s Batista missing WrestleMania and Eddie Guerrero passing away in October. In 2016, it’s Seth Rollins injured and Daniel Bryan whose career was cut short. John Cena is in his first year of being *the man* in WWE and he’s REALLY getting booed by WWE fans right about now. In 2016, Roman Reigns is getting treated even worse by WWE fans than John Cena. Either way, both received big pushes and neither one of them were embraced by the audience. Triple H headlines his fourth WrestleMania here and he’s still being used to help boost the main event players to this day. A McMahon is mixed up in a match that he should have no chance (in hell) of winning. Shane McMahon is here. The Undertaker is still around. In 2006, we’re witnessing the blowoff to the best Divas feud in WWE history. The Divas title match going down this year is comparable to this level of greatness IMO. Just so many comparisons, it almost seems intentional. Read the rest of this entry

WWF WrestleMania 2: What The World Is Coming To
April 7, 1986
Uniondale, NY/Chicago, IL/Los Angeles, CA
Nassau Coliseum/Rosemont Horizon/L.A. Sports Arena

The current WWF Champs were as follows:
World Champion: Hulk Hogan (1/23/1984)
Intercontinental Champion: Randy Savage (2/8/1986)

World Tag Team Champions: Greg Valentine & Brutus Beefcake (8/24/1985)

Cheap plug: I strongly recommend the “Main Event: WWE in the Raging 80s” book that WWE has put out. It’s a great read with more 1980s information than you’ll probably ever want to know.

From New York, our hosts are Vince McMahon and Susan St. James! Remember McMillan & Wife? Well, she’s wife. The legendary Ray Charles sings “America the Beautiful”! Read the rest of this entry
