two years pass...

most inexplicable mania mainstream celebrity appearances? 14 has gennifer flowers and pete rose (trolling the boston crowd). 11 has jonathan taylor thomas and jenny mccarthy and pamela anderson and, uh, nicholas turturro from NYPD blue.

64. Bret Hart vs. Yokozuna at Wrestlemania 9

lol yoko spends this whole match on his back like a turtle who can't roll over. and thats even before the big shitty ending/hulk.

just finished my rewatch of WMX. Best WM of the first 15? I think it's gotta be

Only one with Adam Bomb, so sure.

I think over the next 7 days I'm gonna watch like 14 WM matches. I'm thinking:

King Kong Bundy v. Hillbilly Jim w/midgets
Blue Blazer v. Perfect
Rockers v. Twin Towers
Hogan v. Savage
Owen v. Bret
Diesel v. Shawn
maybe Taker v. Sid? is that the one where Sid shit himself?
Angle v. Jericho v. Benoit
X7 steve v. rock
HHH v. Jericho
steve v. scott hall
goldberg v. lesnar
cena v. hhh
flair v. michaels
rey v. punk

I think the Sid shitting himself story happened at a house show. I watched Sid vs Taker a long time ago, I didn't think it was nearly as bad as it's made out to be. At least it had a decent finish that fans wanted to see, which is more than you can say for Cena vs Miz and Orton vs HHH.

I've heard the Sid story attributed to Mania 13 more times than anything else, but also house shows and even a Raw, so who really knows

(incidentally, is there anyone with more goofy backstage shit attached to them than Sid? between the shitting, his love for softball, the squirrel story, stabbing Arn Anderson...)

X-Pac could maybe give him a run for his money, especially since his butthole injury last year.

wait whaaaaaaaat

So i've got Sunday free and being in Britain, that's a day before WM (It airs from midnight; I'll most probably wake up at like 4 and grab some illegal version and watch it before I can annoy the girlfriend, who will be asleep like a normal human being.). I'm thinking of watching two Wrestlemanias. I've don't think I've ever seen 18, 22, 24 so I might pick one of them. (I've seen bits.) And the others...

I know suck: 1, 2, 4, 9, 11, 15, 16, 29
Have like 1 or 2 great matches: 5, 6, 7, 10, 12, 14
Seen recently, so no but are great: 17, 19
Can't really remember but are really good: 20, 21, 23, 25, 26
Remember being a bit shit but not might be: 13, 27, 28

Maybe 20 and 24? Kinda wanna watch Steamboat-Savage and Bret-Austin again but lol there comes a time when its pointless.

24 is rad and worth watching for sure. Probably the last Mania I really liked but I haven't seen 26 (minus HBK/Taker), which ppl seem to dig
