I’m sure by now you’ve seen about a million blogs, articles and podcast hosts list their WrestleMania 34 predictions. For the most part, you can usually tell how the show is going to go based on the Vegas betting odds and looking ahead at which Superstars are scheduled for work outside of the wrestling ring, etc.
I try to avoid those unless I don’t have much invested in the pay-per-view, and WrestleMania would qualify as one of those special occasions where I’m doing everything within my power to avoid any potential spoilers. So here it goes. This is my wish list of what I hope and think should happen at WrestleMania 34 in New Orleans. Continue reading →

Nice try Dana White. You couldn’t just sit back and let WrestleMania weekend go by without trying to steal the show, could you? Do I really think this is all scripted to snipe the headlines during Masters weekend and WrestleMania?
Tonight the WWE makes it’s last stop on the Road to WrestleMania 34 as the SmackDown brand takes over Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio. With it being the last pay-per-view before The Show of Shows, I don’t expect too many shakeups with the major title pictures. However, that may be exactly what they want you to think (but don’t count on it, seriously). Will this finally be the night we see Carmella cash in her Money in the Bank contract that she’s been carrying around for what seems to have been 28 years? We’ll see… Continue reading →
Cincinnati.com – The Cincinnati Bengals and Pittsburgh Steelers racked up $63,816 in lost dollars on Friday due to an infraction by Bengals safety George Iloka and the one-game suspension of Steelers receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster.
In the grand scheme of things and with the way the game went and the sports world reacted, this doesn’t seem like much money. You’d think game checks would be getting yanked left and right with the narrative we’ve heard all week long. Was this an ugly game for all parties involved? Yeah. Was this a black eye on the league that is “trying” to clean the game up? Probably. Does Roger Goodell have a massive boner trying to decide what he’s gonna buy with this $64k? Absofuckinglutely he does.
Before you get all pissy – yes, I know he doesn’t actually get to pocket the money. Or does he? I’m too lazy to look it up right now, so lets assume he does. What kind of car should he buy? Maybe he could buy a few friends since he probably doesn’t have any? Does he have kids? That would require sex and King Goodell has about as much sex appeal as Darren Rovell after a night of trying $6 gourmet sandwiches at minor league ballparks just so he can get some cheap retweets. So maybe no kids. Again, I don’t feel like looking it up. So instead of researching anything about Roger Goodell’s life, I decided to come up with a list of a few suggestions for Ol’ Rog.

The powers that be at WWE rocked the pro wrestling world this past week by having the United States Championship Belt change hands at the untelevised WWE Live event at Madison Square Garden. On this week’s SmackDown they recapped the AJ Styles upset of Kevin Owens in a very creative way, by showing the event unfold through cellphone video to further drive home the point that this happened off-air and was only seen by the lucky “few” that filled Madison Square Garden. I’m not sure what their angle is, other than possibly trying to drum up some interest in their WWE Live events? But if they were going to do that, it would make sense to do it at an event that wouldn’t normally be gangbusters at the box office like any WWE event they hold in NYC.
As the new United States Champion, AJ Styles issued an open challenge for the belt, which I think would play better if it was the anti-American Owens that challenged all comers, but maybe that’s why I’m not writing for WWE, although I’m not sure they could match my Milliron Sports salary.
