“You can’t wrestle” chants filled the arena as fans watched WWE’s newest superstar further his feud with Y2J. If only they knew how wrong they were. But who can blame them? What better way to gain heat than to debut over a month ago and still not take part in a match. The arrogant Fandango has proven his dancing capabilities, but where did he come from and can he actually keep up in the ring?

The birthday celebration for Mae Young last night was very sweet. Even in her older years, she has been very much a part of the scene in the WWE – appearing in many bits and spots on television.
Last night, as part of the WWE App exclusives, Vince McMahon and Triple H presented Mae with an honorary Divas Title, and shared some very candid and heart felt moments with the oldest living wrestler.
They are keeping this video restricted to WWE.com for now, so click here for the link.
Tonight is a reaaaalllly big deal. At least, it should be.
Oh, and LOL @ Paul. He knows he gets us everytime. He knows.
Ok, back to tonight…
FOUR major points on contention going on under the WWE umbrella, and all of which are major crossroads moments for the direction the company/brand will take going up to and through Wrestlemania.
IN NO ORDER:
1: What is done regarding Jack Swagger?
Two major issues. First, we all know he got pinched for smoking his pot. To ANY Superstar who does not have a major story-arc running this infraction would normally land somewhere between a career “burying” or “death-sentence.” Buuuuuuuut the controversies with the Zeb Colter/Real American story line have been netting WWE some MAJOR mainstream media attention. That kind of cross-over on the Road to Wrestlemania was normally invaluable. A participant in the Co-Main Event of Wrestlemania 29 has really brought some controversy to the table.
The question remains, does the story line persist tonight, or do we see Jack Swagger step aside in some way. Zeb Colter can exist without Jack Swagger. Right now, Jack Swagger does not get a World Heavyweight Title shot at Wrestlemania without Zeb Colter.
2: John Cena vs CM Punk for a spot at Wrestlemania
This could just be to tweak the smarks. If so, consider me tweaked. But I love it. Many people feel strongly one way or the other regarding Rock/Cena 2 at Wrestlemania 29. And of course, if you’re against Cena, you’re Pro-Punk. Super.
Buuuuut we don’t know what Punk will be doing at Wrestlemania. Does he take John Cena’s spot away from him? Does he get put out and denied a spot at the new title? Will he be somehow added in to the title match, making it a triple threat?!

The picture above of the Chairman before hip surgery, first tweeted by WWE, has been floating around the interwebs last night and it still doesn’t fail to give me a chortle. Maybe it’s the look on Vinnie Mac’s face as he flips us the (blured) finger. Or maybe its because I half expect Yurple, Mr. Socko, Mankind and Stone Cold to appear in subsequent photos.
He catches a lot of crap from smarks, but I love me some Vince McMahon.
