Topps WWE Summer Slam 2019 Card Packs

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , on September 23, 2019 by getbent57

Topps_WWE_Summer_Slam_2019Came across some Topps WWE Sumer Slam 2019 card packs.  A few years ago bought some Topps Walking Dead card boxset.  Like the idea of colleting cards.  However it can cost too much to get a full set.  Then what do you do with them.  It’s not like they are easy to display.  That being said I just had to buy two of these card packs.  These ones are different then the standard pack you might find.  It is the “More Value” pack which comes with 20 cards with an asterisk, “Packs with special insert may contain only 17-19 cards”.   The standard set has seven cards.  I have not opened them yet.  Plan to mark a video for  the, I’d Rather Watch Paint Dry, YouTube channel.

Funko – Pint Size Heroes WWE

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 21, 2018 by getbent57

Have added two more Funko items to my growing collection.  This time is from their Pint Size Heroes line, WWE.    Have a few others this this type from the DC line.  More of a fan of the Mystery Minis.  But these are pretty cool as well.  They take up much less room.  The two I got are Kevin Owens and Nikki Bella.  They are nicely detailed paint.

WWE RAW: The First 25 Years Book

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , on June 2, 2018 by getbent57

WWE_RAW_The_First_25_Years_BookWhile checking out the book table at a local store one caught my eye.  It was WWE RAW: The First 25 Years.  I am of fan of wresting and WWE so took a closer look.  It is one of those pictures book with small info boxes all around the pages.  With a paragraph or so every now again.  The asking cover price is $32.00.  Thought that was a bit too much.  So put it back.  Then seen that there was a %40 off sticker on it.  Well that makes it better.  So bought a copy.  Haven’t read it yet.  But did flip though a few pages.  Was surprised to see some of the wresters they had it there that no longer work there and had some falling out.  For example seen that CM Punk was in there a few times.

WrestleMania 34

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , on April 8, 2018 by getbent57

WrestleMania_34All most forgot about WrestleMania.  For some reason thought it was taking place next week.  Turns out WrestleMania 34 is tonight, April 8, 2018.  Like many past years will not be watching it live.  Will have to watch it later in the week.  Have read somewhere they have blocked out seven hours for everything.  That it one long ass show.  It covers all the preshow and what not.  Not really interested in all the talking about it for hours and video packages they do.  Just want to watch the main show.  I just hope this years how is better than the past few.  Sure there has been some great moments.  Just hope over all isn’t  kind of boring.

2018 Royal Rumble

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , on January 15, 2018 by getbent57

Royal_RumbleHave not watched wresting or WWE in a long time.  But do check out their website every week to see what is going on.  They seem to have a PPV every three weeks now.  So there is no real build up any more.  That being said there are still the big two they do I have to watch WrestleMania and the Royal Rumble.  This years (2018) Royal Rumble will be a bit different from past years because it will have the first every 30 person Women’s Rumble.  This should be good.  The only question I have is there 30 women in the WWE?  I know in past Rumbles they would have “filler” guys.  Like surprise guests and older/retired wresters.  I guess we will find out soon.   This is set to be on PPV/WWE Network January 28, 2018.

WrestleMania 32 Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , on April 11, 2016 by getbent57

WrestleMania_32I know I am late with this review.  That is because I didn’t watch it live.  Not sure if WrestleMania 32 was the longest WrestleMaina in history.  It was just about ten minutes shy of five hours.  That is with out the pre-show matches.   Did not watch the pre-show.  So can’t comment on those matches.  All so not going to to review each match like I have in the past.  Want to do us an over all review.  First thing is the was the best WrestleMania in years.  It flowed so much better than this time around.  For being as long as it was it didn’t drag until The Rock came out.  The first match was the best.  Which was the seven man ladder match.  The New Day were awesome as they all ways are.  Was happy to seen that the Women’s Champion belt is back.   All so really liked the 20 man battle royal.  There was some surprising people in that.  The only let down was the big main event.  It was just another by the book and boring wresting match.

Over all really enjoy this years WrestleMania.  In past years the show would run out of steam around the half way point.  Not this year.  It all pretty much great until the main event.

WWE Tough Enough

Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , , , , , on July 4, 2015 by getbent57

WWE_Tough_EnoughOver the years there has been a few different version’s of WWE’s Tough Enough.  Which started back in 2001.  Now this 2015 is the six version.  The show has changed its format over they years.  This years is know different.  It is mix of the classic reality TV mixed in with Live portions.  Kind of what Big Brother does.  Did watch the first episode (may watch the others).  Only because Chris Jericho is the host.  Oh, and all so because it is on WWE’s YouTube channel.  Well only in some places.  Think only some place out side the States can see it on YouTube.  This is a very rare move.  Ever since the WWE Network has been out.  All their new/old content has been the only place to see stuff like this.

WrestleMania 30 Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , , on April 7, 2014 by getbent57

WrestleMania30.pngGot to see WrestleMania 30 live on PPV.  There is all was something cool about WrestleMania.  This being the 30th one knew they would have a few surprises up there sleeves.  There were more shocks than surprises.  Started off with Hogan messing up the arena they were in.  Then Stone Cold came out and did this things.  The first stock of the night was when the Rock came out.  It made fun of Hogan a bit.  Which was funny.  Just like the past few WrestleMania’s it starts off strong then gets boring.  Some of my predictions came true why others were way off.

Pre-show: A four way tag team match:  Didn’t see this but The Usos kept the belts.

Daniel Bryan vs. Triple H:  Knew Daniel Bryan would win and go onto the main event.

The Shield vs. Kane and The New Age Outlaws:  Picked the Shield to win and they did.  They crushed them in minutes.

Vickie Guerrero Divas Championship Invitational: This was a silly match which didn’t make much sense.  In the end AJ kept the belt.

Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal: This was very cool match.  It was the best of the show.  Even one was thinking the Big Show would win.  Now the second surprise of the night, Cesaro won.  Which was really awesome.  He won by picking up The Big Show and dumping him over the top rope.

John Cena vs. Bray Wyatt: All I can say is Boooooo.  John Cena one of course.  By staying true to himself.  Very lame.

The Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar:  This was the biggest shock of them all.  The Undertaker lost.  The whole crowed when silent.  Some people were saying it was a mistake.  While I didn’t want Lesnar to kill the streak.  But that was the plan because as soon as Undertaker lost they had the graphic 21-1 on the screens.

Randy Orton vs Batista vs (Daniel Bryan).  Picked Bryan to win and he did.  Even with all the outside interferences he won.

Over all it was just and ok PPV and WrestleMania.  It will go down as the year The Undertaker lost.  That is the biggest deal of the night.  Glad I seen it live but for being the 30th one thought they would have done some more special things.

For All Mankind: The Life & Career Of Mick Foley

Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , , on April 26, 2013 by getbent57

ForAllMankindThere is a new WWE Blu-ray/DVD out that I wanted to buy because it’s about Mick Foley.  One of my all time favourite wrestlers.  It is called For All Mankind: The Life & Career of Mick Foley.  From what I am reading it is, “The first ever comprehensive documentary on the life and career of hardcore legend Mick Foley” .  Plus a bunch of his matches.  Think this will be the first time that WWE has put a real documentary.  Not sure how good it is but plan to buy it at some point.  Did watch the trailer > here or below.  Does look like they did a good job.
