WrestleMania XXX was an eventful show. It calmed the fears of those afraid that it would crash the WWE Network and cause major damage to the company's latest venture. Cesaro broke away from his tag team and broke out by winning the Andre the Giant Memorial Trophy. Hulk Hogan, Steve Austin, and the Rock hung out in the ring and had a blast. Mr. T and Roddy Piper buried the hatchet. Daniel Bryan went through an endless supply of punishment before being defeating Triple H, Randy Orton, and Batista.
The Internet is an incredible invention – an outsourcing of human memory and knowledge. A hive mind for the world, allowing people to communicate around the globe in a matter of microseconds. In my opinion, it’s the biggest social change since the Industrial Revolution. But it’s also responsible for naming a research ship Boaty McBoatFace.
Last year, the Natural Environment Research Council launched a Twitter campaign called #NameOurShip. The Internet gave the most votes to Boaty McBoatFace.
So I don’t know what Tna owners Anthem are thinking asking fans on the Internet to name the owl in their logo, a contest that has now been extended for another week.
Due to the overwhelming amount of submissions, we are extending the contest by 1 week! Next Monday we name a winner! #AnthemOwl pic.twitter.com/Uf7uNj0wiN

Once in a lifetime matches are great. They’re special because, you know, there’s only one of them. In a lifetime.
Until…there’s another one.
Sequels rarely hold the same appeal, like Jaws: The Revenge. The way around this is to increase the stakes. After The Rock beat John Cena at Wrestlemania 28, Vince McMahon made sure the WWE Championship was on the line for their Wrestlemania 29 rematch. Unfortunately, you can’t put a title belt on a shark.
If the currently reported Road to Wrestlemania plans are to be believed, the just ‘chuck a title on it’ way of thinking might be happening again.
Goldberg and Brock Lesnar have now clashed twice since the former’s WWE return. First at Survivor Series for a total of 1 minute 26 seconds, and then in the Royal Rumble match for a further 22. That means both encounters haven’t even made up two minutes of in-ring action. »
