Hello all. I am sorry for the delay but I was unsure of the format to blog with. I did not want to turn this into a Game of Thrones blog, but at the same time I did not have much to write about. With that in mind, fantasy will meet wrestling.
This WrestleMania was number 29. Though it lacked a bit of star power, that will happen when you fail to create new stars. The crowd was as good as it could be with an open air stadium. I was very proud that the event was held in my home state of NJ. Unfortunately I could not afford tickets. Punk vs. The Undertaker was the best match by far. There was great emotion and struggle throughout and At some points I actually thought Punk might pull off a win. The only negative thing I have to say about it was the length. The match was far too short and they both deserved more. Triple H vs. Lesnar was also solid. Honestly it was a good WrestleMania. This was far from the best, but unlike what some people on the internet are saying, this was very far from the worst. Does no one remember 11, 9, 13? Take away the Austin/Bret match and 13 was one of the worst ever. But getting back to 29, I am torn… I really want to give this show a B- but I think I would feel better with a C+.
Game of Thrones, why do you taunt me so?! You flaunt these amazing ideas and possibilities and then rip the end game away from me, saying “until next time”. First off there was not enough Tyrion. They could remake the show into the Tyrion hour and I would be content. Of course that will not happen, but at least give the man some real screen time. I will say it was quite interesting to see Jamie finally handle a sword in a real duel. Though we do not see it often, let us not forget he was king’s guard and of course has the title of Kingslayer. So he should be one of the best duelists in the land. That aside, I am sure I am not the only one who wants to see how good he really is. Just a light side note, who does not want a dire wolf? Seriously they are beautiful creatures and who the hell would ever mess with you or your property? No Dany mention really which was odd especially after the season opener. Also, I really could care less about any Greyjoy. Am I the only one? Besides the cool sigil, words, and amazing Iron Islands I would be fine not seeing them again. I think a B for this episode is fair enough. I hope next week they really impress me.
Have a good week all. Enjoy the nice weather.
