Wrestlemania XXXI Thread: The Pre-Show

Howdy Blog O'Doomers!

Well today is the day and this is clearly the Super Bowl, World Series, World Cup Finale (insert any other sports theme you like) of professional wrestling/sports entertainment. And like those events sometimes you don't get the matchup you want but you can't deny the success the name has regardless. As Gorilla Monsoon always said..."tonight history will be made."

And Wrestlemania is also quite the boom for this board as traffic levels go from above average to extremely high during the course of the week.

I don't know who will be writing reviews on the show...I know I'm not and you can all applaud for that.

Oh yeah the Pre-Show will be competing with the Duke-Gonzaga basketball game so you can all talk about that here too if you want.

I encourage discussion and would appreciate it if you kept it fairly clean.

Also, all Reddit spoilers will be deleted. Please do not spoil the show for those wanting to be surprised (This is Brian Bayless)

  1. Finally, we have arrived. Hopefully this show doesn't suck.

    What in the fuck is this streaming? Commercial from HELL.

  3. Just ordered my pizza and getting my drinks ready. Let's do this.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Hope for new content during the pre-show has died as it starts with the LL Cool J shit I've seen a million times already despite not watching RAW in weeks.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Shit Duke/Gonzaga is on the same time as this

    ReplyDelete
  6. Did you know it's sponsored by Kickstart?
    No, then let's be reminded dozens of times..

    ReplyDelete
  7. Byron Saxton blows. Holy crap.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Ugh, I'm so tired of Booker T.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I liked him just fine the first couple of times I heard him. But after the last few days, I think he's one of the worst.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Pizza is ordered, got tabs open on twitter, here, and the BoD fantasy hockey league, got the network on. My body is ready.

    ReplyDelete

    I may hate the 49ers, but Levi Stadium has an interesting look, and the open-air venues are a breath of fresh air compared to the stale look of Raw. That stage still looks like crap, though.

    ReplyDelete
  14. That poor lounge will never be clean again.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Large order of nachos, fajitas, two six packs of beer and stuff to make mixed drinks. Gonna be a fun night regardless

    ReplyDelete
  16. How many dudes did you blow in Mexico? #AskLita

    ReplyDelete
  17. I saw you post something earlier about Cesaro doing Steiner math--where did you find that?

    ReplyDelete
  18. You can ask Lita questions using #AskLita.

    Over/under on questions about Edge and Matt Hardy?

  19. I'm gonna overcome the odds and beat you while at Mania.

    The question is, who's coming for your body: Lana, or Rusev?

    ReplyDelete
  31. Belee_Matt!_INDEED!!!March 29, 2015 at 3:08 PM

    Already bored. Pity.

    ReplyDelete
  32. A nice set of boobs always looks best in pink. Sweater or top.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Prediction: Lesnar wins, is destroying Reigns post match, Rock comes out for the save/staredown.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Good, trip was nice and relaxed since I avoided the light rail everyone is taking

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'm over in 222

    ReplyDelete
  36. Network Stream is struggling to stream in HD for I. 40mb download speed and all.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I just posted the above about reddit spoilers. You've been warned

    ReplyDelete
  38. So how bad is the crowd reaction for Reigns? I'm gonna say boos but nothing crazy as the crowd will be drained by then.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Prediction: Hogan walks out with the belt.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Rusev is a shockingly good promo.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I don't even know how fucking Reddit works.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Disqus dropping the ball hard tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  43. 300 lb dude wearing a Brie Mode shirt. Seems about right.

    ReplyDelete

    Nailed it.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Biff Kensington Has a PosseMarch 29, 2015 at 3:10 PM

    I think it's going to exceed expectations. The guy has drawn heel heat everywhere he's gone this week, and it's going to culminate in a brutal auditory assault tonight.

    And it will be hilarious.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Discus is as bad as I've ever seen it tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Who was better in bed?

  48. Biff Kensington Has a PosseMarch 29, 2015 at 3:11 PM

  51. Digging Lana's outfit, yessir.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Just gonna autorefresh, I guess. Just click the sort by newest link so you don't have to reload the whole page

    ReplyDelete
  53. Well, that... settled the Rusev/Lana thing pretty quick.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Hellooooo nurse!

    Spoiler: Wrestlemania is in California this year.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Injuries.. over the hill performers.. four hours to kill..


    Ladies and Gentlemen.. Welcome to Restholdmania!!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Why is everyone saying Cena\Rusev is like Rocky 4. It's clearly more like Rocky 3. Evil Challenger wants a match with the hero champion, but he says nah. Champion beats on tomato can while challenger runs his mouth and finally gets his match.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Booker T loves him some White Russian.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Let us hope that's the last $9.99 commercial tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Does that include things relating to the potential health of a participant? (Just wanting to be clear...)

    ReplyDelete
  61. Giant group let me go ahead of them in concessions. How kind.

    ReplyDelete
  62. If this show has anything going for it the atmosphere looks great.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Stadium looks cool, but I have to admit I've never liked the open air thing, especially when it starts in the daytime. I think you lose a bit of the atmosphere.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Not gonna lie, I'm going to mark the fuck out as soon as Sting steps foot in the ing

    ReplyDelete
  65. There will be at least one during the main show

    ReplyDelete
  66. I predict smores

    ReplyDelete
  67. Belee_Matt!_INDEED!!!March 29, 2015 at 3:14 PM

    ReplyDelete
  68. We are watching on the damn Network!

    ReplyDelete
  69. I'm hyped for this show, I just hope it's not too much of a mission to be able to talk about it on here.

    ReplyDelete
  70. It will be. IT. WILL. BE.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Why can't John Cena be like this at all times?

    ReplyDelete
  72. Is this pre-show streaming to non-customers as well? If not then they really need to stop shilling the Network.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Happy holidays gentlemen.

    ReplyDelete
  74. I may post here and there myself throughout the show

    ReplyDelete
  75. Belee_Matt!_INDEED!!!March 29, 2015 at 3:15 PM

    But Rocky 4 has a Russian dude.

    Jesus.

    ReplyDelete
  76. I drink Heineken, I guess that makes me a traitor :-(

    ReplyDelete
  77. Just think: in less than a year the 49ers will be competing for the Superbowl in this very stadium.

    ReplyDelete
  78. I still have this weird, stupid and unrealistic hope that Taker comes out as the ABA as the ultimate mindgames answer to Wyatt's build-up...

    ReplyDelete
  79. Pre show is also on PPV free streams and I think Youtube as well.

    ReplyDelete
  80. First hour is available elsewhere

    ReplyDelete
  81. Belee_Matt!_INDEED!!!March 29, 2015 at 3:16 PM

    Things wil deteriorate as the night goes on.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Fuck you! Now I want smores!

    ReplyDelete
  83. First hour is on YouTube still, I believe.

    ReplyDelete
  84. It's hot when you are stern.

    ReplyDelete
  85. yep. don't have the Network, watching it on youtube.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Biff Kensington Has a PosseMarch 29, 2015 at 3:17 PM

    Renee Young: "Lana looks great in white."

    What does Renee dream of, when she takes a little Renee snooze?
    Does she dream of banging Ambrose, or licking Lana her nice white suit?
    Don't you worry your pretty little lisp, all your words sound clean and crisp.
    And soon you're gonna see the show of shows, even if Roman Reigns really blows.

    Blows, BLOWS, BLOW-BLOWS HE BLOWS HE BLOWS BLOWS BLOWS....

    But if Brock Lesnar retains the World Title?

    Titties getting mastered tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Click the Sort By Newest link so you can periodically do a manual refresh of the comments.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Hmm I thought the pre show started at 6 really hope none of the matches occur until then meep I want to finish watching the Indy car race first

    ReplyDelete
  89. It would look better crumpled on on my bedroom floor!

    ReplyDelete
  90. Someone wanna ask them politely to stop asking me to subscribe? I'm already watching...

    ReplyDelete
  91. Rusev is not Russian

    ReplyDelete
  92. Kane, stark naked, guards Triple H's door.

    ReplyDelete
  93. I wonder if that guy screaming for Booker will be ejected before the show even starts.

    ReplyDelete
  94. I don't get them doing the $9.99 thing when you've already paid it.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Anything that looks different from the usual ancient Raw stage setup.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Belee_Matt!_INDEED!!!March 29, 2015 at 3:19 PM

    Oh you are just the worst.

    Bulgarian with Russian allegiances. Whatever.

    ReplyDelete
  111. Ah okay. Well still, they have a long way to go to reach Todd Petingill's level of pre-show shilling.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Disqus is being a cunt huh?

    ReplyDelete
  113. Ring has the LED side paneling a la NXT

    Dudes right in front of me costumed head to toe (right down to shin guards and boots) as Bryan and Bray

    This is weird to say, but I wish I had sun screen for Wrestlemania. Sun is right on us.

    ReplyDelete
  123. Well then.. that makes sense.

    ReplyDelete
  124. Please get it right.

    Wrestlemania is the Super Bowl of Sports Entertainment.

    Wrestle Kingdom is the Super Bowl of professional wrestling.

    ReplyDelete
  125. Biff Kensington Has a PosseMarch 29, 2015 at 3:24 PM

    This year's card might be underwhelming on the surface, but the Network presentation has done a world of a job making this show feel super-important. In an era when nothing is really important, that helps elevate this show well beyond the ordinary.

    ReplyDelete
  126. Ah, ok, got you. I avoid all that stuff like the plague anyway - fuck sitting up til 5am and getting it spoiled! :D

    Enjoy the show, dude.

    It's rising to the occasion.

    YEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAHHHHH!

    ReplyDelete
  156. Pretty much the start where the wheels started coming off that year right there.

    ReplyDelete
  157. Me neither. I've never even heard of them. Had presumed they were a US thing that just hadn't reached the UK yet...

    ReplyDelete
  158. There's other things one can do when they're not interested in a segment besides going to the bathroom

    ReplyDelete
  159. Refs come out for a group photo, get a THANK YOU REFS chant. Nice.

    ReplyDelete
  160. Building Orton/Rollins as "the young entitled punk meets the original young entitled punk" is a much better idea than any of the other junk we were given in the last few months.

    So it seems like this will be another Disqus night where I need to keep hitting refresh to see new comments?

    ReplyDelete
  162. Biff Kensington Has a PosseMarch 29, 2015 at 3:29 PM

    It's starting to work regularly for me.

    ReplyDelete
  163. Yeah, Disqus is going all screwy

    ReplyDelete
  164. Skylar Grey....she's so insanely talented and yet has to have a goofy name and be treated as something less than she is. I have a demo album somewhere of her before she was signed and was just Holly Brooks (I think).

    ReplyDelete
  165. Sells all the tickets

    ReplyDelete
  166. Can't believe they botched this storyline.

    ReplyDelete
  167. This is why I get pissed at this company. Instead of building some mid carders or bringing up a few NXT guys, they'd rather put some fucking artists that no one gives a shit about.

    ReplyDelete
  168. so tag title match or ARMBAR as our opening contest?

    Personally I'm expecting Tag match.

    ReplyDelete
  169. I was able to get it to work directly from the Disqus site.

  176. I have never cared about a single Randy Orton match. I've been taking pisses during this guy's matches for 12 years now. Don't think that'll change tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  177. Biff Kensington Has a PosseMarch 29, 2015 at 3:31 PM

    I think the tag match is going first.

    ReplyDelete
  178. They somehow can't maximize potential with FOUR HOURS to work with.
