A Farewell to Shawn Michaels

Last night was a tear filled farewell from Shawn Michaels, born Michael Shawn Hickenbottom on July 22, 1965, as the Heartbreak Kid officially retired from pro-wrestling. This is my tribute to him. But, I should warn you that while I respect Shawn, I am not a fan. I am, though, a wrestling fan, as such I know what he contributed to this great sport. So, I think because of that this one will be a little different than other tributes.

While, Shawn had been in the AWA, my first exposure to him would come when he and tag partner Marty Jannetty would first appear in the WWF. Formerly the Midnight Rockers, upon entering the WWF, they dropped the Midnight in the their name and became, simply, The Rockers. The Rockers were one of my fav tag teams growing up. They were talented and very influential on future tag teams that were to come in pro-wrestling. They would eventually hold the tag titles, but alas all good things most come to an end, as Shawn turned heel. In one of the most memorable turns in all of wrestling, he gave Jannetty a superkick through the glass on Brutus Beefcake's Barber Shop set.

That made Shawn into one of my most hated heels, of that period in time. He became a conceited asshole and soon had the beautiful Sherri Martel, no longer managing Randy Savage, as his manager/ valet. Sherri, said, was in love with the "Boy Toy". She even sang the lyrics to the original version of his entrance song, thus he became "The Heartbreak Kid". As, I said I hated Shawn during this time, but that only meant that he was doing a great job as a heel. But, he came out with Sherri, one of my biggest crushes growing up, so I looked forward to see her! He would eventually drop Sherri, and become his own man. He would even have Big Daddy Cool Diesel as his bodyguard. All of this was shaping him into the superstar he would become. He also held the Intercontinental Title. But, was destined for even better things...

One of his best matches was for the vacated IC belt in a ladder match with Razor Ramon. Again, Shawn was influencing all that was to come in the biz. He would eventually turn face. And, this would lead to his biggest push, yet. He would get his first world title against Bret Hart in their classic Iron Man Match at Wrestlemania XII. From here on many of my most memorable Michaels, including the passing out bit on Raw and the "I lost my smile" thing would occur.

As the face of wrestling changed to a more mature attitude, i.e. the WWF Attitude Era, Shawn was at the forefront with his new heel faction, D-Generation X, which was him and his real life buddy Hunter Hearst Helmsley (HHH) and his then girlfriend Chyna. The factions catch phrase "SUCK IT!" while crotch chopping and crude sense of humor was unlike anything I had every seen. This became my fav period in HBK's career. But, the Montreal Screwjob, where Bret Hart lost the title belt to him, would make me hate Shawn more than ever. But, DX was so much fun, I spent a good deal of my college life imitating him (and others, as well). My absolute fav Shawn Michaels/ DX promo:

Shawn was injured though and would have to drop the belt to Austin. He would not return till 1999 and do some on and off things with the WWF. He even joined the nWo at one point. I totally marked for him joining them! But, it was time for him to get back in the ring. And, he would do that in 2002, first having a great feud with HHH, that led to some hellacious matches. Of course, he would recapture gold, as well. Most impressive was the quality of matches that he could still pull off. And, he had it with the best of them. He even had a dream match against Hulk Hogan, in an angle I was totally marking out for.

By this point Shawn had found God in his life, so gone were the dick jokes and such. Shawn's own religious beliefs came into play when he feuded with Vince. Vince even made Shawn tag team with God in one of the stupidest things I had ever seen. Anyways, DX would return, with only HHH and HBK. HBK could not be doing the type of shit he used to, being religious and all, but HHH did. I though this return of DX was OK.

As, the WWE changed and entered the PG era the next return of DX was shit to me. Still, Shawn did, still, have great matches. I never really cared for his babyface promos, but man, he could still give it his all in a wrestling match. And, so this Sunday he lost to the Undertaker in a good match (though, I prefer their WM match from last year more).

He delivered a very emotional speech last night on WWE Monday Night Raw. And, although I sure as hell did not want him to end Taker's streak and wanted to see him go, I was still saddened. It was not as emotional for me as it was seeing Flair (who ended up not retiring, and going to TNA) leave. But, Michaels had some of my fav matches ever. And, some of my favorite moments, too.

Here is a little piece of that speech:

For that I that I say "THANK YOU, SHAWN MICHAELS!" God bless him. For he is the:
SHAWN MICHAELS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wrestlemania XXVI Predictions

So, it's time for the granddaddy of them all: WRESTLEMANIA, baby! That said much like last few I cannot say I am very pumped for it. Like most, if not, in fact all, WWE product I feel totally underwhelmed. In fact, to me the last truly good WM was 22. After that they seemed to wallow mediocrity. Sure there are always one or two good matches, but al lot of them are meh... But, I'll be watching it. So without any further a due, I give my first, ever (!), WM predictions!

Rey Mysterio vs. C.M. Punk (Street Fight, if Rey loses he must join Straight Edge Society)
I think this might be my fav feud this whole year. In this crappy PG world, it is great to see a heel as awesome as C.M. Punk. Punk is, in fact, THE best heel anywhere, right now, be it WWE or TNA. Punk cuts the best fucking promos. And, last Friday when he interrupted Rey and his family, it was just classic moment. Punk is the coolest straight edge dude since metalcore masters Bleeding Through or Howard Jones of Killswitch Engage (the band that plays Punk's intro music!). Anywho, I think this should be a pretty good match. I wouldn't say five stars or anything but good. My prediction:
C.M. Punk wins with help from the Straight Edge Society to further continue this feud.

Randy Orton vs. Cody Rhodes Vs. Ted DiBiase
Can't say I care for this match or this feud. I lost interest in Legacy when they became Batista and Cen'as bitches. Orton I stopped caring about when the WWE went PG. He is, and always was, a bland babyface. Regardless, this could be an OK match but nothing more. But, I think this is Ted's chance to really become a star. Since I can see a push for him, I say:
Ted DiBiase wins

Triple H vs. Sheamus
Speaking of matches I could give a flying fuck about, here is another one! I have no clue how Sheamus was picked to carry the belt, at one point, since he is the most uninteresting champ in ages. His feud with Triple H is pointless and does nothing for me. Neither will this match. So, while I go and take a fucking piss or shit, I except:
Triple HHH to win

ShoMiz (Big Show & The Miz, Unified Tag Champs) vs. John Morrison & R-Truth
Love the heel team here! And, it's all cause of the Miz. To think just how much I hated this guy, but he has become gold on the mic and a great wrestler. He really is one of the few reasons to watch the shitfest that is Monday Night Raw. The babyfaces, well I like Morrison, but more his in ring abilities than his mic work. R-Truth is a great wrestler but his character and annoying rap bother the shit out of me. I liked him more in TNA. Regardless this should be a good match. I think, and hope, the heels will retain, so:
ShoMiz keep the belts!

Bret Hart vs. Vince McMahon (No Holds Barred)
The first thing I wanna say is that Bret Hart is my fav wrestler, ever. OK so now on to my thoughts: This is years in the making, and I was totally into it, up until Cena defended Hart. But, what really killed it for me is when Hart got his leg "injured" by a car! Lame! And, he just revealed it was his plan! He faked it! More lameness! Totally convoluted crap. Hart is an injured man, Vinny Mac, though in great shape, is no wrestler. Still, Vince matches can be fun. Or they were. When, he could bleed like a stuck pig, back in the TV-14 era. But, with the pussy ass no blood rule in WWE, this might not be so hot. Unless, we get a bloodbath, this could be lame. Still, even a blind man can see who will win:
Bret Hart beats Vinny Mac, duh!

Christian vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. Kane vs. Shelton Benjamin vs. Jack Swagger vs. Montel Vontavious Porter vs. Matt Hardy vs. Evan Bourne vs. Drew McIntyre vs. Kofi Kingston (Money in the Bank)
You know this is what I most look forward to. Last year, this was my fav match at WM, no not the overrated Taker vs. HBK match (yes, I called it overrated sue me!). I think this will be the best match, yet, again! I would LOVE to see Benjamin win. He has been, I think, in all of these matches but keeps getting jobbed out. He won't win cause the WWE sucks cock and swallows. Now, I hear many say on the net that McIntyre might win, which would totally suck balls and make me choke-slam someone through a table. My pick to win?
Christian! Or at least I hope he finally get the push he so rightfully deserves.

Batista (WWE Champ) vs. John Cena
Well, as I have stated many times I hate both these guys. Thing is I hate Cena so much, that this feud makes me wanna cheer for Batista. In all fairness, he has been doing some great work, on the mic, no less, as a heel. Clearly he is better at playing the bad guy. Even if, at times, he looks like he's been stealing clothing from HHH or Rob Halford. Anyways, I am hoping he fucking kills Cena. Sadly, I predict that:
Cena will win and get the belt. Why? Cause Cena can't lose, he thinks he is Hulk fucking Hogan, and, the WWE sucks ass.

The Undertaker vs. Shawn Michaels (No DQ, No count-out/ Streak vs. Retirement match)
Remember how I said that I found the HBK vs Taker match overrated? Well, yeah it was good but lots of blown spots. Come on go watch again, I'll wait for you. Back? OK, good. Still, this should be a good match. But, I am sick and tired of HBK. If he wins, I swear I am punching someone or something. I will be that pissed. Why would he need to be the one to end the Taker's streak? What could it do for his career? Now, I realize no one ever retires in wrestling for real, so I now longer say that (but, think many should). So, I will say this: He needs to go away. And, I hope he does. Yes, I respect his wrestling abilities. Always have. He has been in many great and favorite matches of mine. But, he don't need this win. And, I don't need to see him every fucking Monday night, so I say:
Undertaker wins, the streak remains, intact! HBK "retires"

Chris Jericho (World Champ) vs. Edge
This is another easy one to pick. Edge has had a hot return to the ring. The no longer Rated-R (I know the announcers insist on calling him that but what the fuck is Rated-R about him? The mofo is fucking rated PG, not even PG-13[!]) has been awesome. Well expect for that stupid new catch phrase he has "Spear! Spear! Spear!" Whoever came up with that over at WWE headquarters should be speared with a real spear by a character from Sparatcus: Blood and Sand. Jericho has been fucking amazing as the heel (he always is). And, this should be great match. Maybe, just maybe, match of the night. And so:
Edge will win by using a... oh you know already!

So, those are my thoughts. As always I would love to hear yours, even if you disagree with me or hate my post, or love it. But, at least we all know what we will be watching this Sunday night.

Squirt Gangbang

Title: Squirt Gangbang
Studio: Elegant Angel
Cast: Chelsie Rae, Sasha Grey, Jada fire, Angela Stone, Lexi Love, Annie Cruz, Sindee Jennings, Kylie Wylde, Cassie Young, Britney Stevens, Emma Cummings

This awesome all-girl squirt gangbang flick opens up with interviews with some of the girls, including the beautiful Sasha Grey, who is the first babe, of two, to get gangbanged, in this flick. This is really early in Grey's career. Regardless, she has always been, and still is, a hot and nasty performer. Anyways, most of the girls are shown spread eagle on a swing. And, then, as we move into the scene itself, it opens up with sexy Angela Stone and gorgeous and hot as hell Annie Cruz fucking and squirting on Grey. Soon, more girls join in and it gets REAL nasty and hot! There is lots of pussying eating, kissing, spitting, squirting (of course!), and squirt swapping. By, the end of the scene Sasha is drenched and soaking wet! Hot as the fiery pits of fucking hell!

The second scene has blonde cutie Chelsie Rae. It follows the same basic idea/ step-up as the Grey scene. It's hot and nasty action with some real amazing performances. I prefer the Grey scene a little more, but that has more with me just being a huge Grey fan. Regardless, both scenes are perfect and most sees!

The picture quality is crisp and clear and the sound is good, too. This one has some good extras. It has a short but decent behind the scenes. The real highlight are three HOT bonus scenes from three other Elegant Angel squirting titles. There is an Easter egg and a sexy photo gallery. Finally we get trailers (three of which look really) good, too.

This is an amazing release. One of the best squirting films I ever seen and one of the nastiest girl/ girl vids, as well. This one is so seriously hot it took me multiple, and I do mean multiple viewings, to finally finish seeing it. If every straight dude in the world owned this one, stocks in Kleenex tissues would hit an all time high! A masterpiece of squirt-smut.

Killswitch Engage at Irving Plaza 3/19/10

On Friday, March 20, 2010, my friend Alan and I went to see Killswitch Engage live at Irving Plaza in NYC. What a great show! It was the second of two sold-out shows, at Irving Plaza (the first was night before on Thursday). We didn't know what to expect as KSE signer Howard Jones is out for personal reasons (the two things I hear are: back pains and family emergency). But, in the end we saw an AWESOME show; one that far exceeded our expectations.

The opening act is one of my personal favorite melodic death metal acts, Dark Tranquillity. The Swedish band opened with my favorite song of theirs, Terminus (The Place Where Death Is Most Alive) and blistered to about a half-hour set of killer songs. Included was a song from their new album, We Are the Void. I just bought the album this week and man, it is KILLER! You guys gotta go get it! Very underrated band, I think; I wish they could have played a longer set. I would love to see them sometime again. The band were also really nice and fan friendly. They met and signed stuff for the fans. This is the only pic I got at the show; it's me and lead signer Mikael Stanne:

The next band that played is Christian metalcore band The Devil Wears Prada. I had heard them before but remember not caring much for them. But, I figured if we stayed outside I could give them a listen, and see if I would like them, now. Nope. Hated them even more. Terrible overrated crap. Sorry. Sucks that had more of a crowd and played a longer set than DT. Oh well, whatcha gonna do?

Finally it was time for KSE!!!!!!!!! All That Remains signer Phil Labonte sang all of the Howard Jones stuff. Meanwhile, original Jesse Leech came back on Thursday. It was the first time he played with them since he left the band. He sang all of his songs that he did with KSE. Man, he was killer!!!! As, was Phil (the band, thus, became Philswitch Engage). Many of my fav songs were played like End of Heartache, Rose of Sharyn, When Darkness Falls, etc. The band sounded tight, the packed crowd was totally into them. There was lots of jumping, stage diving, moshing, and, best of all, signing along with the band. I have to say KSE is one of the best live bands I ever seen. We would LOVE to see them again, next time with Howard Jones (one of most soulful signers in all of metal). KILLSWITCH ENGAGE RULZ!!!!!!
