I loved this stuff as a kid, but haven't watched regularly in years. I won some primo tickets to the Toronto show tonight through work however. I was going to bring my daughter - who is a fan - but now she can't make it down so I am bringing THE biggest WWE fan I know... my GRANDMOTHER.

Yep. 77 years old and a die hard fan. She just happened to be in town this weekend by total fluke.

Should be fun. I'll be cheering Edge, who's a hometown fave. I'll let you know how it went :)

If Edge is there that means you're going to Raw. I'll warn you in advance, it's not what it used to be.

Heh. I finally found a quote which states the EF's view on any subject. Cartoons? Wrestling? Anime? Comics?

It's not what it used to be.


Anyways, great job Sober. Hope you enjoy it. Also, off topic, but I want to thank you for your Canadian knowledge (I've learned things from your posts = Me impressing pretty Canadian girl I met). Also, give my regards to Grandma! She sounds awesome.

So, the wrestling was pretty good Friday night.

They messed up the card though. The main event was supposed to be a 4-way match between Cena, Orton, Edge and Seamus or something but then poof - no Cena. I guess he had an injury or maybe something related to his movie release or whatever, but he wasn't there. LOTS of people in Cena gear - including about 95% of every kid under 12 - so there were some disappointed fans. That didn't stop people from starting a "CENA! CENA!" chant periodocally during the night.

The main event wound up being Orton vs. Seamus which was entertaining, but Edge was the star of the night. He's a Toronto guy so they pushed him at every opportunity. He sang (horribly) O Canada at the end of the night after he, Jericho and the Hart Dynasty beat up the NWO... oops sorry... "Nexus". The rest of the card was pretty standard fare. The best matches were Edge and Jericho hilariously beating the crap out of two of the Nexus dudes and the Hart Dynasty taking on two generically stereotyped black characters (the WWE is terrible for that) who I'd never heard of before. Natalya power slamming one of the guys onto the concrete was worth the price of admission alone ... had I actually PAID admission.

The one thing that struck me was how fake wrestling looks live. Actually, you can tell the better wrestlers because it looks more real. Watching the Hart Dynasty, you could tell they had relentlessly practiced making all the little moves (the falls, the punches to the face, clotheslines) look as real as possible. Thank you, Stu Hart. A lot of the other guys - especially the lesser lights or no-names - looked like my kids pretending to wrestle. There were a few real eye-roller moments.

I missed the Divas match because I was in line getting my grandmother a Cena t-shirt, but the Bella Twins were trotted out a few times for the men to oggle... er.. I mean... for relevant plot points.

My grandmother had a great time and they were fantastic seats. Got a bunch of pictures and a few videos (shh!)... I'll try to post a few tonight.

That would make the perfect match against the Undertaker at this year's Wrestlemania.

I liked wrestling but not a die hard fan, I always respected it because even though the matches are pre determined and the punches are fake, you can't fake falling from a 20 foot cage or being lit on fire, those guy risk a lot ask Kurt Angle he broke his neck a couple times.

Ahh. I was a big fan of wrestling only as recemt as last year. Bout since then, I furthered distanced myself from it. It just wasn't as good anymore. I've been hearing the same thing about TNA. Edge is still one of the premiere heels in the business, and he's great at it. I hope you enjoy it.

WWE isn't that good for a number of reasons. But while TNA used to be lame from a storyline/promo angle they've always put on good matches. In the past couple of years TNA's gotten a lot better in every aspect.

I can't speak for tom, but the strong and silent type is not really enjoyable for me.
