The World According to ZAH

  • Extreme Rules takes place this Sunday. Here are my picks:
    • Extreme RulesSheamus vs Dolph Ziggler – I’m not sure why they did a “Kiss Me Arse” match between these two, but it’ll be a shame that Ziggler has to pucker up when all is said and done. You don’t bring back Sheamus and push him the way you have to see him lose on his first PPV match.
    • Cesaro & Tyson Kidd vs The New Day – As much as I hate to say this, but I smell a title change here. Why? The New Day is an act that WWE Creative is putting time into. You may not see it on the surface, but it’s happening. To have them win the titles would help elevate them as a team and prove WWE management right for spending all the money on them to get them over in the first place. I love Cesaro and enjoy Kidd, but I don’t think there’s money with them as champions. Love ‘em or hate ‘em, there’s money to be made with New Day.
    • Big Show vs Roman ReignsBig Show vs Roman Reigns – I just don’t see the point of Reigns being decimated by Show if you’re not going to blow off this feud with him coming out on top. Especially after taking the fall at WrestleMania, you need to rebuild Reigns into the viable main eventer that you want him to be. I’ve read about potential outside interference from his next possible feud (i.e. Bray Wyatt), but I hope that doesn’t happen. This feud with Show needs to end with a definitive finish. Let Wyatt attack him post-match.
    • Ambrose vs HarperDean Ambrose vs Luke Harper – I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve put over Harper as one of the best “big men” I’ve ever seen inside the squared circle. And I mean EVER. This guy is phenomenal. Having said that, Ambrose is coming off of a number of losses to marquee names and needs to get a bit of revenge against Harper. While a Harper win would really help him out, I think Ambrose’s character needs the push a bit more right now.
    • Naomi vs Nikki BellaNaomi vs. Nikki Bella – I think it’s safe to say that the “Nikki Bella Divas Champion Experiment” is finally coming to an end. It’s just too bad that AJ has retired and Paige is off doing whatever she’s doing, because there are very few women on the main roster who can run with the Divas title successfully. I don’t believe Naomi is one of those people. She’s extremely athletic, but she hasn’t brought all of the pieces together yet. She isn’t connecting with people, good or bad. Until that happens, she’ll be yet another lame-duck Divas champion.
    • Bryan vs BarrettBad News Barrett vs. Daniel Bryan – While I think it’s a joke to believe that Barrett can become a SIX TIME Intercontinental champion (especially considering how he was booked during his last title reign), WWE simply can’t trust Bryan right now to stay healthy. It sucks, but I think the “Yes Movement” might be on its last legs. I have more thoughts on Bryan below.
    • Cena vs RusevRusev vs John Cena – Believe me, there is nothing I want more than to see Rusev come out on top against Cena here, but I don’t think it’s going to happen. I think WWE wants Cena to run as U.S. champion for some time so he can bring stability and fan interest to the belt. You can easily have the world champion main-eventing on one house show circuit with Cena main-eventing on the other. I don’t think you can do that with Rusev as champion. I don’t know where Rusev goes from here, but he regroups and goes after somebody new.
    • Orton & RollinsSeth Rollins vs Randy Orton – Rollins is obviously not losing the title here. There is no way they’re pulling the plug already on a red-hot heel champion who is getting more and more over as a heel every single week. With Kane being involved as “the gatekeeper”, I expect some shenanigans and outside interference. But when all is said and done, Rollins walks out WWE World Heavyweight Champion.
  • Bryan vs BarrettSo what’s the deal with Daniel Bryan? I mean, at this point should he still be even wrestling at all? If he’s not able to wrestle at the PPV, why not just write him out of the show? If he is cleared to wrestle, then he should lose the title to Bad News Barrett and prove that he can remain healthy before getting another run with a title. I mean, this is why Roman Reigns was in the main event of WrestleMania and why Seth Rollins is the champion right now: Daniel Bryan is a major risk. You simply can’t put all of your eggs into his basket until he’s proven himself able to remain healthy for an extended period of time. Sad, but true.
  • It’s funny…I thought the movie Tomorrowland was going to be some kind of “sci-fi family drama” that looked pretty decent. Then the new movie trailer came out and it became a TOTALLY different type of movie! This thing looks kick-ass!

  • Tebow EaglesA little while ago I mentioned how Tim Tebow to the Philadelphia Eagles wasn’t that big of a crazy thought. Sure enough, the Eagles signed Tebow this week. Obviously, he could still be cut before opening day, but I think he fits into Chip Kelly’s offense perfectly. If he’s improved his skills over the past two years, then he’s certainly young enough to have quite the little run in Philly.
  • You’d think that, as a Canadian, I’d be all over the NHL playoffs. Truth be told, I don’t give a shit about hockey. I’m an NFL fan all the way, which is weird because I don’t even care for the Canadian Football League at all. I guess I’m just an American at heart.Hockey sucks
  • There’s a Canadian WWE tour next weekend. I’m going to the show in Halifax, Nova Scotia with my son but I’m starting to wonder just who is going to show up. From what I hear, John Cena and Roman Reigns will be in Montreal, so that cuts us out. Daniel Bryan’s injured, so he’s gone. What does that leave us with? Well…hopefully Orton vs Rollins but I won’t hold my breath. Regardless, I’ll be writing about it.
  • SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!!! (part one)

  • SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!!! (part two)

  • NO THANKS…I’LL KEEP MY MONEY.

  • I’m too old to truly love this song, but I do. This song is hella-fun. Song of the Week is “Trampoline” by Kalin & Myles.
