"I honestly think that you are so good (different) at how you approach columns. I know some people take compliments lightly and such, but honestly, you should be a very proud man. Boatloads of people including me, read your columns ALL THE TIME. Me personally, I wake up every morning, and before I go to school, I read your column (I'm 16). Also, your consistency with your columns is amazing, just from reading them so much, I almost feel like I know your thought process (not that I do). So with all of that out of the way, thank you."

On Wednesday afternoon, I reached 1,000 Twitter followers and delivered on my promise to give away a $25 WWEShop card. The total of the items selected by the winner actually totaled a tad bit above that with tax included, but it didn't matter. Their gift should arrive in a few weeks (back order apparently). Thanks to everyone who followed the past couple of weeks. Also, thanks to everyone who immediately UNFOLLOWED seconds after the winner was announced. Haha, you greedy SOBs...
Why AJ Styles VS Shane McMahon At WrestleMania 33 Is A Phenomenal Idea
I wrote about the rumored AJ Styles vs. Shane McMahon feud over at 411mania on Monday. The new column is now posted. Needless to say, I like the potential matchup and talk about why. Assuming it does happen, it is my pick to steal the show...
Check out the column right here:

Great stories, great writing and a real life journey worth following. Read it here: https://arkofexperience.com/2017/03/11/the-rockstar-mortician-vs-the-world/
WWE Smackdown LIVE
Big props to AJ Styles and Shane McMahon for their segments on Tuesday night. Loved it. Intense and felt as real as real could be in wrestling. I hope fans give this feud a chance because it is off to a HOT start. It may only last until WrestleMania 33 - enjoy the interactions now! You may actually miss entertaining television by being bitter and upset for no reason.
As I wrote about on 411mania last week, it is a phenomenal idea. Certainly has the right two guys.
It seems Mauro Ranallo missed the tapings due to snow. No shame there. I think everybody is due a 'call in' once in awhile. No shame in that. Weather does not always cooperate. However, then came JBL commenting on Twitter that everybody else made the show...why not him? Interesting and truthful. Everybody else was there. Normally, that would be enough, except then Mr. Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer made a cryptic remark about Mauro possibly, maybe NOT being there for a different reason. Well, now we have something.
Honestly, I don't know what is going on. Mauro is usually VERY active on Twitter but hasn't been on in a few days. Plus, a bunch of ex-commentators from WWE suddenly want to start talking about the situation. Feels like there is SOMETHING going on. Not sure of what though. There is one rumor out there explaining the situation. However, it's not my place to mention the details because of its' uncertain source.
If anybody cares, my prediction is Kansas. I picked the Cubs to win the MLB World Series last year and the Cavs taking home the NBA Finals (both correct) but also had the Colts winning the NFL Super Bowl (incorrect). Yeah, hit or miss.
Still torn on seeing Skull Island. Will probably get around to Beauty and the Beast at some point. I did get to see Logan and Get Out in theaters recently. Enjoyed Get Out more. It had a unique vibe to it, compared to other cookie cutter films. Plus, there was a really good twist towards the end. I am a sucker for those shocking movie moments. Once you get to the payoff, everything else adds up in hindsight. Logan was fine. However, we kinda knew what was going to happen the entire time, and it dragggggged. Long movie. Recommend seeing Logan and Get Out.
We are near folks. We are getting closer. I am so beyond pumped to go to Orlando, Florida. Leaving Friday morning and heading back early Monday morning right after WrestleMania 33. The event will take up almost all of Sunday, so I am trying to jam in a lot of junk Friday and Saturday. Going to be a blast!
There, I mentioned Paige. Those are my comments.
Post-WM Call Ups
For the record, there are four names that I know are being considered for a call up from NXT soon. Likely right after Mania. One is Shinsuke Nakamura. We all assume that is coming. My prediction for months has been the night after WM33. Next is The Revival - I'd put them on Smackdown LIVE to wrestle American Alpha. Easy decision there.
The fourth and final person involves an upcoming NXT spoiler, so I will not say HIS name. Not a bad choice - just wondering where he fits in.
No, Asuka is not on the list to move up. Nor is Bobby Roode (who will be NXT Champion for a good while). Not yet anyways. She can feud with Ember Moon for another few months and then head up during the summer WWE Draft. Whether that is in June or July, it would make sense. Can't call up everybody at the same time folks...
