Derrick Rose...chartering new waters?
Saturday, April 27, 2013 12:03:39 PM(UTC)
If he's not mentally ready to play now, I wonder if he ever will be? To get over that, one must play in a game to conquer his fears. The more he waits, the harder it'll be once he returns. But again, this applies really if these concerns are strictly mental. Though it sounds like his knee is ready and has been for a little while now.

USA extended the Hall of Fame special on Tuesday from 60 minutes to 75 to try and get Foley on. It was ridiculous that he wasn't included in the first place, but obviously Bruno wasn't getting bumped; Trish was big because Stephanie inducted her and they always show the celebrity inductee (plus Trump wouldn't have done it if he wasn't going to be on TV).
Foley's speech went pretty long last night. At the end of the speech, he mentioned how he never beat Jericho at MSG and that his dream is to elbow drop Y2J. Jericho went on stage and Foley gave him a soft elbow and CM Punk acted as referee and counted the 3.
I guess Backlund speech was insanity. The guy went into his crazy mode and Vince went out on stage twice to try and get him off. Maria Menounus, his inductor, went long, about 15 minutes, and the crowd booed her and gave her the "what" treatment.
And no, this won't be broadcast on the show tonight. It went 3 1/2 hours or so and will only be on the Wrestlemania DVD. It's basically the main reason they do the Hall of Fame.
WLT wrestling at State
Sunday, March 17, 2013 6:37:37 PM(UTC)
Took a year off from doing this, but thought I'd give it another try. Little late, but here is a recap of how the WLT did at individual state in 2013.
113 - Senior Tswvyim Lor (43-5) of WBW had a great run in his first trip to state, winning his opening round match-up, then fell to eventual runner-up and former champion, La Crosse Central's Ben Thornton. Lor won his first wrestleback, but failed to place as he lost to the fifth-place finisher, Muskego's Austin Quartullo.
126 - Despite losing his first round match to Kenosha Tremper's Tyler Rice (54-1), East junior Turner Pruett (40-9) won two wrestlebacks and ended up placing sixth.
138 - Oconomowoc senior Eric Lease (36-8) lost both of his matches while West junior John Goetz (41-8) won a wrestleback but failed to place.
145 - East sophomore Jordan Gundrum (47-3), a dangerous threat who made his second state appearance, took fourth and will be worth watching the next two seasons.
152 - Perhaps one of the best wrestlers Hartford has seen in quite a while, freshman Beau Breske (50-2) defeated Pulaski sophomore Kasey Caelwaerts 4-2 in the finals. What's even more impressive is the fact that Breske is having great success at a heavier weight than what most freshmen compete at. Oconomowoc junior Logan Ballering (39-7), in his second trip to state, reached the semifinals before losing to Caelwaerts, 4-2. Ballering last made state as a freshman.
160 - Senior Nick Hahn (40-9) ended his career with a state appearance, but did not to earn a victory.
170 - Oconomowoc sophomore Joe Nettesheim (26-14) and Beaver Dam senior Jackson Bailey (40-4) each made it to the wrestleback rounds, but didn't advance any further in the bracket.
182 - Richard Kuehl (31-9), a sophomore from Oconomowoc and one of seven Cooney wrestlers to make it to Madison, earned a pin in a wrestleback against Mayson Madden from Mukwonago.
195 - Another freshman competing at a heavier weight, Oconomowoc's Brett Samson (34-10) pinned Brookfield East's P.J. LeClaire in 2:42 in a wrestleback.
220 - Cooney junior Nick Gomez (19-4) won three matches and ended an impressive year with a sixth-place finish.
285 - Senior Michael Mohr (42-6) from Oconomowoc and Riley Budde (43-4) from Beaver Dam met in a wrestleback with Budde taking a 4-3 ultimate tie-breaker victory to advance to the third-place match. Budde took fourth. Mohr placed sixth in his first trip to state.

Oh come on, that is such a cop-out excuse. People don't quit something because there is "nothing left to prove". I'd say not being able to take a punch leaves a little bit to be desired in a fighter. He took his ball and went home, simple as that.
Sure, he could've proven more, but the diverticulitis took too much of a toll on his body to compete against the world's best heavyweights. Brock may have had weaknesses in his game, but for a while he was the best heavyweight in the world. He took out one of the greatest fighters ever in convincing fashion. Lesnar didn't go the Fedor route and fight lower level competition to keep his legacy in tack. He fought the best the UFC had to offer at that given time.
Now he can still make a great paycheck coming back to the company who made him famous in the first place. What issue do you have with that?

Did the first match really end in less than a minute?
Of course, the smart marks are losing their minds about "the best wrestler in the world" having to job in a squash match at WrestleMania.
I thought it was awesome.
It was a fitting way to "give it" to Bryan, but I'm not really impressed by Sheamus. He's been getting this push that doesn't feel like a main-event push. To me, there's no character to him. Except for the fact that he's a brawler who wins every time he steps in the ring. Not much to it.

It isn't worth ordering in my opinion.
The Rock vs. Cena has lost its appeal. Announcing it a year ago takes away the surprise and excitement of what should have been a big deal to all wrestling fans. Some can't wait for it to be over.
The Rock isn't The Rock anymore. He's Dwayne Johnson. Laughing at his own jokes, not having that "it" factor he once had as a full-time wrestler. It's something The Rock of old would have never done.
And Cena, to me, is dull and boring. I'm not one to chant "Cena Sucks." That's what WWE wants their fans to do. I'd rather not have him on TV due to his current character's (or lack thereof) predictability.
Now there's rumors of Lesnar and Batista being involved. Why watch this year? I'd rather rent it on DVD a month later and not pay the $65 to see what happens. The return of these two are a set-up for next year, anyway. I'll order it then if the buildup is any good.
We know the outcome of the 'Taker match. But it'll be good, no doubt.
CM Punk and Jericho will be epic, but again, the storyline is somewhat lacking. Jericho's character is old and he motivation is odd.
Sheamus and Bryan will probably be a good techincal match. But they weren't really fueding up until two weeks ago. I could care less about this match.
The WWE has gone south over the past decade. It went for a PG rating, but now that the wrestlers of old have returned, they've thrown that out the window. So what direction are they headed towards? That question could be answered in tonight's main event with Rock and Cena. Rock wins, maybe they'll go a more risque route. Cena wins, which is likely, they'll continue their boring trend of predictable baby faces and heels who have myriad talent but aren't used to their full capabilities.
Interesting stat about Rapids

That seems odd to me, but I guess it's true.
I can think of five Arrowhead wrestlers off the top of my head who went D-1 in the last 10 years, yet no Rapids wrestlers in that time frame.
Interesting stat about Rapids

I was reading an
about Devin Peterson and Rylan Lubeck the other day. Here's the interesting part: Peterson and Lubeck will be the first Rapids wrestlers to compete at the Division I level since the mid-1980s when Jim Hamel wrestled for the University of Minnesota.
Wow. I could have sworn Rapids has had a wrestler go to a D-I college in the last 10 years. Hard to believe that's not the case.
