5 Things to watch instead of the Pro Bowl

Personally speaking, the Pro Bowl and all other all-star games are jokes. Yes, it’s great that all of our favorite players come together for one night, but really there’s no game. No one takes the event serious. It’s just another way for the NFL to expand revenue and we, as football lovers will watch anything that has football in the description.

However, there are 7 things that will be a bit more exiting than the Pro Bowl Sunday night, which is at 8 PM EST.

1. Catch up on House of Cards. It returns February 27.


2. The Royal Rumble will be happening on the WWE Network for $9.99.

Jerry’s World to host WrestleMania

It was announced Tuesday that WrestleMania 32 will take place April 3, 2016 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

This will be the third time that wrestling’s big event takes place in the Lone Star state. Both WrestleMania X-Seven and The 25th Anniversary of WrestleMania were both held in Houston.

Vince McMahon said in a press release:

“WWE thanks the city of Arlington, city of Dallas and the Dallas Cowboys for their tireless efforts to bring WrestleMania to AT&T Stadium,”

“We look forward to making history at WrestleMania, while adding AT&T Stadium to the list of iconic venues that have hosted our annual pop-culture extravaganza.”

When the 2010 NBA All-Star Game had a crowd of over 108,713 in this very building. Expect the WWE to try fit more people into the building.

WresteMania XXX was in New Orleans, LA. The event generated a record-breaking $142.2 million, which resulted in more than $24 million of additional tax revenue.

5 reasons to be addicted to the Match of the Week from WrestleMania 24

This week’s Match of the Week is Shawn Michaels vs. Ric Flair at WrestleMania 24. Personally, these are two of the greatest to ever put on the boots.

Build-up

Mr. McMahon told Flair that whenever he lost he next match his career would his last. “The Nature Boy” then went on a huge winning streak heading into this historic match. “The Heart Break Kid” insulted Flair by calling him Old Yeller.

These are the top 5 reasons to watch this match:

  1. Ric Flair’s last match in WWE.
  2. Flair took three shots of “Sweet Chin Music”
  3. Jim Ross and Jerry “The King” Lawler calls the action. Need I say more?
  4. Flair connected from the top rope.
  5. You get to see an apparent respect between the two competitors.

This, however, was not the last match for Flair. A year later he went to work for TNA.

This match and others are all available on the WWE Network.

Match of the Week: Hitman v. Stone Cold

WrestleMania 13 was clearly a background for one of the greatest double turns in the history of wrestling. “Stone Cold” Steve Austin faced off against Bret “Hitman” Hart in a submission match. Anyone who knows about Austin’s style knows that he did not have a submission maneuver in his arsenal. The two figure out a way to make this match work with a little help from “color”. Enjoy this week’s featured Match of the Week.

Referee:          Ken Shamrock

Announcers:  Vince McMahon, Jim Ross, Jerry “The King” Lawler

This match is available on the WWE Network for $9.99 if you would like to see the complete aftermath.
