Final Score: 4/10 — 40% — Normally I hate to be wrong, but not this time. I’m glad it turned out to be unpredictable, at least for me.

Match of the night for me was Ric Flair VS Shawn Michaels. Not only was it a great match, but it was also emotional. So long, Ric Flair and thanks for the memories.

There was a tech problem and we all missed the first ten minutes. Each of us received a Coupon to attend a “Special Event” for free.

Happy Wrestlemania Day, Wrestling Fans

So last night, The Score (TV Sports Channel in Canada) was supposed to air the 2008 WWE Hall Of Fame Ceremony at 11 PM followed by a Wrestlemania Highlights Show from years past.

I set up my PVR (Personal Video Recorder) to record it, so I could watch it today before Wrestlemania. I put it on and the freakin thing recorded Basketball and then recorded WWE Smackdown. Needless to say, I was pissed. I quickly thought of checking YouTube and I found what I needed.

For all those interested, I have posted the induction of the Nature Boy Ric Flair. It’s pretty emotional, but well worth viewing, even if you’re not a Wrestling fan.

Check it out.

and here’s Part Two

Thank god for the Internet.

Enjoy Wrestlemania and I’ll be back shortly after the show (hopefully) and post how accurate I was with my predictions

With nothing else going on right now, I’ve decided to post my predictions for Wrestlemania 24 which airs LIVE on Pay Per View this Sunday (March 30th) at 7 PM Eastern.

Here’s the card for the event. My predictions will be written in bold.

Raw/SmackDown/ECW 24-Man Battle Royal
– Winner gets a ECW Championship shot the night against Chavo Guerrero.
Confirmed Participants:
Raw: Snitsky, Brian Kendrick, Lance Cade, Trevor Murdoch, Hardcore Holly, Cody Rhodes, Val Venis, Hacksaw Jim Duggan

SmackDown: Mark Henry, Chuck Palumbo, The Great Khali, Deuce, Domino, Jesse, Festus, Kane, Jamie Noble, Jimmy Wang Yang, Shannon Moore,
ECW: Elijah Burke, Matt Striker, The Miz, Tommy Dreamer, Kofi Kingston
This match will be shown for free on wwe.com at 6:30 PM. I probably won’t see it because I’ll be on my way to the Movie Theatre for the show. I’m picking Kane to win and go for the Title later that night.

Live On Pay-Per-View:Triple-Threat WWE Championship Match
– Randy Orton (c) vs. John Cena vs. Triple H
Triple H will win the Title here.

WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match
– Edge (c) vs. The Undertaker
Undertaker will defeat Edge to not only win the Title, but remain undefeated at Wrestlemania.
ECW Championship Match
– Chavo Guerrero (c) vs. Raw/SmackDown/ECW Battle Royal Winner
I picked Kane to get the Title show, but somehow Chavo will remain ECW Champion.
Money In The Bank Ladder Match
– Ken Kennedy vs. Chris Jericho vs. Shelton Benjamin vs. Carlito vs. MVP vs. CM Punk vs. John Morrison
A Suitcase will hang above the ring. Inside the Suitcase will contain a Contract for  a Title shot that can be claimed anytime within 365 days following the match. 
This is tough to predict, but my guess will be Ken Kennedy once again.
Career Threatening Match
– Ric Flair vs. Shawn Michaels
This will be a very emotional match for everyone involved, including the fans. If Flair loses, he will be forced to retire and Flair’s Wrestling Career will end after 30+ years. With Flair’s induction into the WWE Hall Of Fame later tonight (11 PM Eastern on USA Network & The Score in Canada. UK — Sunday March 30th, 8 AM on Sky Sports 3) it is expected that his last match will be at Wrestlemania 24. My prediction is that Shawn Michaels will win in what should be a great match.
Raw vs. SmackDown Match
– Umaga vs. Batista
This will be what I refer to as my bathroom break. My prediction is neither one will win and the fans won’t be happy. I expect a rematch down the road between these two juice monkeys.

BunnyMania Lumberjack Match
– Ashley & Maria vs. Beth Phoenix & Melina
Ashley & Maria will win.Belfast Brawl
– Finlay vs. John “Bradshaw” Layfield

Another bathroom break for me. Hopefully I return to see Hornswoggle (a midget leprechaun) return and beat up the millionaire. Wow, I can’t believe I just typed that. Anyways, I pick Finlay to win and he’ll reveal himself as Hornswoggle’s Father. Now you see why I get teased for being a Wrestling fan at 33 years of age.

Big Show vs. Floyd Mayweather

Alright, this is the match everyone supposedly wants to see. Let me break it down for you. Floyd Mayweather is a Boxing Champion that weighs about 150 lbs. I’m not a fan of Boxing, so I’m not fully aware of his skills or background. Big Show stands at over seven feet and weighs over 400 lbs. Common logic and sense would have Big Show beating the crap out of Mayweather. This is Pro Wrestling though and common sense rarely prevails.
I pick Floyd Mayweather to win.

So there you have it. I will post how accurate I was shortly after I return home.

Enjoy the show, Wrestling fans.

I’m slowly starting to believe that Spring didn’t forget about Ottawa, Canada. It’s still a little cold here, but apparently it’s gonna get warmer over the next few days. Not soon enough for me, but I’ll take it. I’ve had enough of Winter and I’m ready to break free and have some fun outside.

My only concrete plans for this weekend is watching Wrestlemania. If I can’t get a ride to see it at the Theatre, I’ll probably watch it at home.

I’ve been a Wrestling fan for about 21 years now. I still get teased about it at times, but I don’t care. A few years ago, I worked for a Local Wrestling Company for about six months. At one event, I got to hold the Titles and various Robes. That was pretty neat to be part of the action. I also did Backstage duties as well. I got to hang out with Raven a few times and he even smashed a guy’s face with my Tray on my Wheelchair. So, that was one of my boyhood dreams that came true. Yes, it sounds corny, but how many Physically Disabled Wrestling fans can say they actually worked in Wrestling?

As far as Wrestlemania goes, I may do a post tomorrow giving my predictions for the show, but I haven’t decided yet.

So how many of you plan on taking part in Earth Hour this Saturday? Earth Hour is where people all across the World are supposed to turn off all their lights for one hour from 8-9 PM.

It’s a good idea in theory, but I have to wonder how much of an impact it will actually have. I guess it depends how many people and companies take part in the event.

I still plan on Blogging tomorrow, but probably not between 8-9 PM.

So yesterday was pretty long for me.

Most of you know that I was at the Rehab twice yesterday. Yup, I’m a Druggie. I’m a Slave to Gummi Worms. Mmmm worms.

Just kidding

I went to the Doctor and then returned three hours later to play Boccia. As I left my place, I ran into my Wife (not literally) and she decided to tag along. She got to see where & who I spend my Wednesdays with.

After I practiced a while, I played a few games. I won 1 out of 3 games against him. Not bad if I say so myself. Shortly after that, we returned home so I could watch Moment Of Truth.

The rest of my night was spent relaxing in front of my TV & PC.

There’s a hockey game tonight between the Ottawa Senators & Buffalo Sabres. If Ottawa wins tonight, they seal the deal with a spot in the playoffs.

I don’t have a lot of time to post.

Everything went good with the Respirologist today. The only annoying part was waiting an hour to see him.

Now I’m heading back to the Rehab to play Boccia.

I just noticed that I’ve surpassed the 1000 hit mark.

Thanks so much for dropping by.
