Some of the best Y2J moments have happened at the top of that ramp. Take his hand sweet heart – he’ll help your career. Right Fandango, Dolph Ziggler, and everyone else in the locker room?
The crew is back stateside after a long week crusading across Europe and have come home to the most Euro-centric city in America: Columbus, Ohio.
The weekend was full of chatter over John-boy injuring his Brad Pitt tendon. Is it hype? Is this a legit injury? Who cares – Cena is scheduled tonight!! He might have to lose an arm to get a night off.
For tonight – here’s what we have to look forward to:
- Cena will team with Ryback to take on the Shield in a 3 on 2 handicap match.
- The World Heavyweight title picture remains congested as somehow Swagger still has the right to challenge Del Rio and better yet, Dolph Ziggler.
- Zack Ryder is growing his hair out
- Fandangoing might be seeing a curtain call. Will the crowd tonight pay homage to the ballroom-king?
- Big E Langston will wear a singlet that appears uncomfortably small for a man with “Big” in his name.
- And can despite being an inactive competitor for the better part of a year, can AJ be a sufficient challenge for Katilyns Diva’s title?
All this and more, when we live tweet tonight at 8pm for three hours. Let’s be honest – it will be the highlight of your night.
This is a great debut. I could go with this guy teasing the audience for weeks. I don’t care how old school his gimmick is. Give him a perfume bottle to spray in people’s faces for all I care. He’s going to conquer the squared circle, the same way he conquered the world of dance.
Wrestlemania is but a few short weeks away – we’ve confirmed four matches thus far.
- The Rock (c) vs. John Cena for WWE Championship
- Alberto Del Rio (c) vs. Jack Swagger for the World Heavyweight Championship
- The Undertaker vs. CM Punk
- The Shield vs. Sheamus, Randy Orton, & Ryback
There is still a lot to be decided! On tonight’s show:
- Triple H will confront Brock Lesnar and their Wrestlemania match will be confirmed
- There will be a Triple Threat Match for the IC title with Wade Barret (c), Chris Jericho, and the Miz.
- And you know, the rest of the undercard will probably do something.
I’m hoping for some huge swerves and proverbial wrenches to be thrown in the dastardly of plans!

Foxtrot. Romeo. India. Delta. Alpha. Yankee. It’s FRIDAY! And as a Wrestling God once said, on Friday Nights we fight. Since JBL is still hiking the Seven Summits for charity, here’s hoping Brad Madd-ox is filling in on commentary again. The man was gold last Friday.
Somebody’s gonna get their wig split.
The big hyped fight for tonight’s show is the World’s Strongest Man, Mark Henry taking on Ryback, but with rumors of the two slated to meet on the Showcase of the Immortals, I’d suggest we may not get the promised match. While lots of snarky fans, are poo-pooing the quality of such a match, I think Mr. Feed Me More verus Mr. That’s What I Do could be a fun big-man strength matchup. Will it ultimately happen tonight or in 4 weeks? We shall see.

Tonight at 10, since there’s no pro wrestling this evening, you should be checking out Y2J’s latest side project, Robot Combat League on SyFy. Unlike past “robot fighting” shows like Robot Wars or Battle Bots, RCL takes the genre more towards bringing the film Real Steel to life.

NoDQ.com has also reported that Chris Jericho’s deal has him working full-time through Wrestlemania 29. They’ve suggested a course of action which could have Jericho briefly feuding with Brock, but facing Ryback at Wrestlemania. We’ll have to see how this plays out.
Reports are flying all over the Internet about two big stars signing new deals with the WWE.
The reported new deal for Brock Lesnar, by Wrestlezone via PWInsider, states that Lesnar’s new deal is for two years and will take him all the way through Wrestlemania 31. If this contract is anything like his last deal, then it was really a no-brainer for Brock. The former WWE Champion will have worked a dozen or so dates for reportedly millions of dollars between Wrestlemania 28 and 29, still having the ability to pursue his own ventures. I’m guessing he’ll continue to be a part time wrestler, but if the Rock can make it back to the top on that schedule, why couldn’t Lesnar?
The reported deal for Chris Jericho, by the Examiner via PWInsider, is purely speculative. Length and terms have yet to be announced. However, one could probably assume that this does not mean that Y2J will be back full-time. Jericho has recently been touring the world with his band Fozzy to promote their most recent album, “Sin and Bones.” He’s been vocal in the past about wanting to make his band a priority. Perhaps we can expect to see Jericho also make sporadic appearances over the next year or so. I’d have to imagine that it’s a lock he’ll be at Wrestlemania 29, though. Perhaps a rematch?
The part-time returns of The Rock and Brock Lesnar have seemingly been a huge success for the WWE. And, of course, The Undertaker reportedly will be making his annual appearance for the WWE at Wrestlemania. Quick survey: How do you feel about this era of part-time wrestlers? Do you love seeing some old favorites come back, so long as they can still perform on a high level? Or, would you rather see the big pushes go to guys who are around all year?
