Wrestlemaina 28

Wrestlemania 28

Yes WWE fans it’s wrestlemania time again, just two days before the big event takes place in Miami Florida. This year’s wrestle mania is going to be another interesting and exciting one. Most of the matches are something to look forward to. I am going to touch on them in no particular order of how they will appear in wrestle mania.

First up is the match between Daniel Bryan and
Sheamus for the World Heavyweight Championship. To be honest Bryan has held the title much longer than many of us expected him to. Part of the reason is the way he is able to weasel himself out of certain situations, sometimes putting his girlfriend AJ in harm’s way, not that she seems to mind.
Come Sunday Bryan is going to do one of two things; defend his title like a man or get AJ to interfere in some way or the other so he can retain the title. I think Sheamus is going to come prepared and for this match I give Sheamus a win over Bryan.

Randy Orton VS Kane

This is a match that can go either way. Both of these men are tough competitors and are evenly matched. Neither will want to lose to the other. They are two of the most dominant forces in the WWE. Will Randy be able to win against the Big Red Monster?  If he is able to pull off a RKO he will.  This is going to be a tough one but I am going to give Randy the edge over Kane.

Big Show VS Cody Rhodes

While this is not one of the great matches of wrestle mania 28 it might turn out to be an interesting one as The Big Show has a score to settle with Cody Rhodes. For weeks now Rhodes has been a thorn in the Big Show side. He has been constantly mocking the Big Show, pointing out his weaknesses, trying to humiliate him.
A win over Cody Rhodes would no doubt be a boost for the big man, who has not been doing that great for a while now. Winning the Intercontinental Championship might just be what Big Show needs to get him back on track. If he is able to stay on his feet he should win this one. I predict a win for The Big Show.
Kelly Kelly & Maria Menounos vs. Divas Champion Beth Phoenix & Eve

Kelly Kelly & Maria Menounos VS Beth Phoenix & Eve
In this diva’s tag team match competitors on both team are evenly talented. However Beth Phoenix is usually very dominant in these matches and Eve Torres seems to have gained a lot of confidence lately. I pick the team of Eve and Beth to win.

Team Teddy VS Team Johnny

This such be an exciting match. Teddy’s team consist of Santino Marella (captain), R-Truth, Kofi Kingston, Zack Ryder, The Great Khali and Booker T. Johnny’s team: David Otunga (captain), Mark Henry, Dolph Ziggler, Jack Swagger, The Miz and Drew McIntyre, who replaced Christian after he suffered some injuries at the hands C M Punk.
Tension has been running high for weeks now between Theodore Long and John Laurinaitis as each seek to become General Manager of both Raw and Smackdown. The outcome of this match might surprise us all but I think team Johnny is going to win this one.

The Undertaker VS Tripple H
Once again the Undertaker and Tripple H will battle it out to see whether or not Tripple H can beat the Dead Man and end the streak. The question is does Tripple H really want to end the streak? Maybe not, but he no doubt wants to be the man to beat the Undertaker at Wrestlemania. For this match I am picking Tripple H to win.

C M Punk VS Chris Jericho

This match is a must see. The tension between Punk and Jericho is now at a boiling point with Jericho making personal attacks on the integrity of Punk’s family members. This is typical Jericho, he will stop at nothing to win a fight; whether it be trying to blind his opponent or making verbal attacks to gain psychological advantage. When he says he is the best in the world at what he does, he is speaking the truth. But does this make him the better fighter? I am predicting that Punk will win this one.

The Rock VS Cena

This match will be the main event at Wrestlemania 28. This is the match that everyone can’t wait to see. After all the talk for the past couple of weeks the two will finally be in action. Both men are going to give it all they’ve got. But I believe Cena is going to win this one.

Words of Inspiration

Anonymous Encouragement Poem:

“When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all up hill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow–
You may succeed with another blow,
Success is failure turned inside out–
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far;
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit–
It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.”

Trayvon Martin

There has been a lot of talk since Travyon Martin was killed a month ago; yet despite the talk and the walks and the cries for his arrest, Zimmerman remains a free man.  This case is now filled with so much drama that it is not even easy to establish the truth of what really did in fact take place that night.  Let us therefore start with the facts that we do know; Travyon Martin was shot dead, George Zimmerman was the one who pulled the trigger to that gun when ended his life.  George Zimmerman said he acted in self-defense but shouldn’t this be a case for him to prove in court?  If he did act in self-defense he has nothing to worry about, he will walk out a free man or but then I forgot as far as the police are concerned Zimmerman does not have to answer to anyone, he said he acted in self-defense and his word is gospel.

A lot of the stories coming out of this incident seems to be fabricated and doesn’t really make any sense.  One of Zimmerman’s friend claimed he was badly hurt that night and went to the doctor the next day to be treated for a broken nose.  Strangely enough there are no photos or videos of Zimmerman looking as if he had been hurt at all.  I am sure if that did in fact happen Zimmerman and his broken nose would have been plastered all over the media.  There are no pictures, because it never happened.  There is no evidence to support his claim of self-defense.  So why are the police so reluctant to make an arrest even now after all the protests and outcries?  It as if they are saying it’s no big deal that’s just one less black youth that we have to deal with.   I don’t want to appear racist but I can’t help wondering, if Zimmerman was black Trayvon white, would the situation have been handled in the same manner?

What is also truly mind-boggling is how when a person commits a crime he suddenly becomes the victim.  Quoting from reports of what one of Zimmerman’s friend ”He hasn’t been to his apartment since that happened and he’s been treated for post-traumatic stress disorder, for depression, for insomnia” end quote.   Well big deal, the fact is Zimmerman is alive and will continue to go on living his life.  Trayvon Martin is dead, his life was unnecessarily cut short, for him there is no tomorrow.   For those Zimmerman’s sympathizers I want you to ask yourselves this question, would if it was my son, or brother, or close relative, or friend that was killed would I still feel the same?   Be true to yourselves and answer the question truthfully.

In ending I just want to say a life is a life.  You shouldn’t have to put a color to it in order to get justice!

Trayvon Martin

A life can be lost in a flash, in the blinking of an eye.  The painful thing is once it is lost it cannot be replaced.  Too many people seem to have the feeling that it is okay to shoot first and ask questions later.  People have lost their lives for being in the wrong place at the wrong time, or for just not having the right look in someone else’ s eyes.

Trayvon Martin lost his life simply for not having the right look in the eyes of George Zimmerman.  He was a black man wearing a hoodie.  That in Zimmerman’s mind made him a criminal and he took it upon himself to play the role of judge, jury and executioner.  He claimed he acted in self-defense but let us get the facts straight.  He was armed, Trayvon Martin was unharmed.  The young man did not attack him; in fact he was trying to get away from him.  So in what way was Zimmerman’s life  in any danger and therefore needed to defend himself?

This was clearly not a case of self-defense.  So why has he not been arrested?  What kind of message is sending to others who feel it is okay to shoot a young black man simply because of the clothes he is wearing?  Will there ever come a time when there will be justice and equality for one and all despite the color of one’s skin?  It somehow seems as if it is going to take a miracle for this to happen.

Having Faith

We all have those days when nothing seem to go right no matter how hard we try.  Sometimes when problems come they all seem to come at once.  We sometimes get so pre-occupied stressing over our own problems that we  fail to realize there are people far worse off than ourselves.  At times when we take the time to reflect our problems might be minor compared to others.   Our problem could be the loss of a job, the breakup of a relationship, children giving problem or an inconsiderate neighbor.  Although it might not be easy, these are problems that can be solved.  Just think about the person who has just lost his or her mother, father, an only child, or a close family member?  What can you say to that person to make the pain go away.  Is there anything that anyone can do to fill the void that is left?   Death is so final, there is no tomorrow, no second chance to do things differently.  Therefore we must give thanks for life even if it may be filled with problems for at the end of the day it is the most important thing that we have.  Everything else takes second place.
