Thank You Dean….

Let’s talk for a bit,

So I was catching up with last weeks Raw and I came to the part where it was Dean Ambrose Vs Bobby Lashley, now the only thing to this was that it would be Dean’s last match in the WWE……which I wasn’t too excited about, I was hoping that Dean wouldn’t leave the WWE, but in way, we all knew it was coming considering it was announced a lot of the time.

Dean’s career hadn’t really been the same for a good while, he won the WWE Championship back in 2016 cashing in on Seth Rollins after he won it from Roman that same night (yes I know we’ve spoken about this) only it wasn’t as memorable as his Intercontinental Championship reign holding the main title for 83 days (2 months with the WWE Championship)

Also let’s not forget Elimination Chamber 2017, the one Dean was apart of, I didn’t forget (okay I did forget) apparently that was the last time Dean’s career went somewhere……..

You know, you would think, after he suffered quite an injury that had him out of action for 9 months, you would think when he returned from recovering they would have something for him, but they didn’t………unless you’re counting the whole Shield reunion, than that’s a different story, but if we’re talking him as an individual wrestler………

They really didn’t do that much with him there……..well okay apparently they did try something with Dean when he returned, but yeaaah it didn’t work……so we’re just going to sweep it away and pretend it never existed, but in all fairness, I didn’t watch the whole “WWE Universe germ keep away thing” so I don’t know what happened there, I missed the whole thing.

If this was the gimmick though, that made Dean finally decide to go: “Yeaaaah so listen Vince, i’ve been thinking and i’ve decided that I won’t be renewing my contract here with the WWE…….once WrestleMania 35 has finished i’ll be going, i’ll stick around for one more Raw since it’s the night after Mania, but once that’s done, i’m leaving……”

I could understand him wanting to leave then, I mean you make this grand return after being out with an injury for almost a year (ALMOST, not quite a year, but close enough) you then get this gimmick that’s supposed to be your heel turn where you don’t want to catch the WWE Universe’s “germs!?…..” Okay I mean I don’t see how it could go wrong……..

Only that’s exactly what happened apparently……..maybe Dean should’ve evacuated the building before the radiation idea got to him………we were all WAITING for this Dean Ambrose heel turn to happen and when we finally got it, it was a complete disaster in the end apparently…..

Side Note: You know I seriously should go back and watch those moments just to give my take on the experience of what everyone else saw.

I know some would say the way Dean turned was distasteful, while others would counter that and say it was actually good because it was unexpected and no one would’ve saw it coming……which they didn’t. So in a way it worked……at least for a minute, once everything went full gear, I guess it just crashed and burned………..the gas mask was cool though!!

It’s just a shame because Dean to me, was and still is one of the most talented wrestlers i’ve ever seen, not just in ring, but also on the mic. I feel that he could’ve done so much more in the WWE, had they maybe let him take over his character and just let him freestyle with it, if they had done that……I think he would’ve probably stayed.

I’m not really sure on the real reason Dean decided to leave, but i’m going to guess that it had something to do with him being unhappy with the way his career was going or just unhappy being in the WWE in general, I just hope wherever he goes next or whatever he does next, that he’s happy and that everything goes well for him.

The matches that he had while in the WWE and also when he returned from injury, I thought they could’ve been so much better, some of them i’ll say were good for what they were, but because it’s Dean and I know what Dean’s matches could be like and are like, they should’ve been so much better then what they actually were.

I really wish they would’ve given him a few proper feuds before he decided to leave, maybe if he had someone to work off of as inspiration or if he was able to gain control of his own character, maybe that would’ve changed his mind……..

If he still decided he wanted to leave even after those feuds then that’s fine, but they could’ve given him something good or at least something memorable, that way, when he did finally leave we’d be able to see him go in a good light you know!?

The match he had last week with Bobby Lashley, it wasn’t even a proper match, I mean we got to see Dean do what he does best and go crazy on his opponents, which was good, I always enjoy that Brawler type side of Dean.

I just would’ve preferred him to have a nice send off match, I think he really deserved that, but we didn’t get it, his send off match ended the opposite way when he was put through the announce table (by the way the match never started to begin with) but he should’ve been the one standing tall at the end of it, whether it was a match or not, it shouldn’t have been Lashley getting the last attack……..

On a good note though the crowd chanted at Lashley that he still sucked and also thanked Dean for his entertainment and for every moment that he gave us and every great match that we got to see him be apart of, that was a good moment!! I was really down on the whole fact that he decided to leave the WWE and that the match, well not match, turned out the way it did.

At least we will have the good moments and best matches in Dean’s career to look back on, but without further ado Thank You Dean for giving us those great and memorable moments and for just sharing your time, even though some people may not have seen it, you were and still are one of the best wrestlers and talents we’ve ever had the opportunity of witnessing.

I don’t think your talents should’ve been wasted the way they were, but thanks for letting us in on your comedic side as well as your serious side, with that you gave us a little part of you to take and just thank you for sharing some parts of your personality with us!!

Also it was a real pleasure getting to meet you during Summerslam Weekend back in 2017, that is a moment that both me and my friend Ray will never ever forget!!! I’ll never forget how extremely nervous we were that day, what a bunch of nerds right, haha!?!

We actually didn’t want to bother you, but thank you for taking the time to take that photo with us, would’ve liked to have gotten to say a few words to you then, but the fact that you even took the time to do that……we will forever be grateful for it, so thank you so much!!

P.S. you’re really tall, I remember watching you come over to us and was just surprised on how tall you actually were haha…….

No, but seriously thank you for everything, if you ever come across this, I just want to say that I wish you nothing, but the very best in your upcoming journey and I look forward to seeing what you get up to whatever you do next………whether you’re headed to a different wrestling company, going back to the indies or just living life…….whatever you do I just want you to be happy, but thank you again Dean and good luck with everything!!

Update: THIS. MADE. ME. CRY. I DON’T EVEN CARE!!! Maaan I love Seth and Roman for actually giving Dean the proper send off that he deserved, that WWE exclusive, really got to me, the minute I heard Dean’s theme, I realized that would be the last time we’d be hearing that and I just cried, well I teared up……..i’m glad that Dean has you guys as friends otherwise we would’ve just seen Dean get put through the announce table by Lashley and WWE go “welp it was nice having you in the company Dean, well wishes to you” (joke…kinda)

The Shield Say Farewell To Dean Ambrose
Source: WWE.com

No, but i’m really going to miss Dean, i’m gonna miss his entrance theme, the weird quirks that he always had, but most importantly, i’m going to miss seeing him in the ring and giving us his witty and most serious hard-hitting promo’s and all that jazz…….

It really sucks that WWE let a good talent, scratch that great “not knowing what they had” kind of talent in Dean Ambrose go to waste like that, but again like I said, I do wish him all the very best whatever he does next, at the end of the day, I just want Dean to be happy, even though he was/still is one of my favorites and I loved seeing him wrestle and everything……

I always saw Dean as something special and just an overall kind of character in the ring and out of the ring and it’s just not going to be the same, Dean has that presence that is going to be hard to match, but I know no one will match Dean’s presence, they could try, but there’s only one Dean Ambrose.

Watching Seth and Roman, do that for Dean though, I didn’t think i’d get that emotional, but thank you Rollins and Reigns for doing that………now that Dean’s officially gone from the WWE, I hope that he’s truly happy with whatever he’s up to, I gotta say though the fact that Dean stuck it out for as long as he did, you gotta respect him for it, it was never about money with Dean, the only thing he ever wanted and loved was pro wrestling, pro wrestling saved him and gave him something to look forward to.

It’s everything to him so for Dean to make that decision to leave WWE that took a hell of a lot of strength from him, that’s why he stood as long as he did, because he cared about it so much, he doesn’t mind entertaining, but for him if he does continue to wrestle somewhere else, I think he’s going to make sure that he’s getting a say on what he does in the ring and on the mic.

You’ll know why now, if you read my last Dean Ambrose post why I said with Dean you have to really get to know him because there’s a whole different side to him that you don’t know and if you want to get to know it, you’ll have to dig deep and not just understand him as a wrestler, but also as a real person too.

If you want to watch the tear-jerker and properly done send off moment by Dean’s former Shield brethren check it out, I left it for you guys, it’s real good!!

P.S. They double whammy’d me by playing Dean’s theme in the beginning and then the Shield’s theme at the end, YOU CAN’T DO THAT TO MEEEEE!!! I have a heart you know!?

I know I said last time in my last Dean Ambrose post, but this time I mean it one last time…..SIERRA, HOTEL, INDIA, ECHO, LIMA, DELTA….SHIELD!!!! We’re gonna miss you Dean, thanks for everything and all the best to you!!

All The Love ❀ ❀

Let’s Talk Wrestling: WrestleMania 35 Predictions

So with WrestleMania around the corner, literally 2 days away, I thought i’d share some of my predictions on who I think could possibly take it home this Sunday, we have a lot of interesting matches headed out way, including the very first Women’s main event featuring Ronda, Charlotte and The Man Becky Lynch, so without further ado let’s talk predictions on what we could look forward to this upcoming Sunday at WrestleMania 35.

Let’s starts with the match everyone’s talking about that is:

Ronda Rousey VS Charlotte Flair VS Becky Lynch For The Raw AND SDL Women’s Championship (Winner Takes All)

Who would’ve thought that after 35 YEARS of WrestleMania it would finally be the Women’s turn to main event on the grandest stage of them all that is WrestleMania!? That is insane, we all know that it took ages for the Women’s division to go from being referred to as Divas transitioned to being called WWE Superstars along with the Men……

Then we had the Raw Women’s Championship reviled to us and then later the SDL Women’s Championship (Which I think is the best title, but i’m probably just being bias, kidding they’re both nice titles)

We got to watch them be included into the Royal Rumble as real competitors and then watched as they were then given their very own all Women’s PPV that was Evolution. We were recently and finally given a very well deserve women’s tag team division and got to see them battle it out at Elimination Chamber to see who would become the inaugural holders of those said Women’s Tag Team Championships……..

Now we get to watch as they put their hearts and souls on the line and go to town this Sunday as the main event of WrestleMania, talk about history in the making, I don’t know how this match is going to turn out, but I know that it’s going to be one hell of a match between those 3 Women come Sunday and I look forward to watching it all unfold when they do face off.

Now I gotta say, i’d be lying if I said this matchup wasn’t a tough match to call, I mean have you seen the 3 women in that match!? It’s gonna be a little tough, we have Charlotte who was the very first Raw Women’s Champion, who just recently became the new SDL Women’s Champion defeating Asuka for it, then we have Becky who was the very first SDL Women’s Champion.

Then there’s Ronda who recently signed with the WWE, leaving UFC and then later became the Raw Women’s Champion a little later after she had just arrived, all 3 women are pretty great in the ring so it’s going to be a very interesting and tough match when we see this match happen.

Prediction: Like I said this is tough, however i’m going for The Man known as Becky Lynch to win this match on Sunday, why because I really want her to win and take both title home and i’ve been doing some thinking Ronda and Charlotte already have titles, The Man however doesn’t which means……….it could be her time to shine Sunday and she could become the Raw and SDL Women’s Champion at the same time………

Making history again within the history making match so, yeah i’m going for Becky Lynch here no brainer whatsoever, even though I love Charlotte, I’m going with The Man that is Becky Lynch as my pick for this match, to win it.

Brock Lesnar Vs Seth Rollins (Universal Championship)


Brock Lesnar………Seth Rollins…………Brock The Beast Incarnente, Seth Freaking Rollins (a.k.a. The Man……other man) tough choice here……..you see we have Brock who’s held this title for waaaaaaay to long, we only ever see it when a big PPV comes around because Lesnar can’t be bothered to show up at least once on a regular Raw show unless it’s when the PPV starts to approach closer to when the match is supposed to happen or the day after the PPV, Brock is pretty much how the weather is nowadays,

You never know what you’re going to get with the weather and you never know when Brock is going to show up on Raw unless it’s advertised. That being said let’s view Seth Rollins, we all know that he won this year’s Royal Rumble outlasting 30 other competitor and that he chose Brock Lesnar of all people to face when he could’ve went for Daniel Bryan, but he chose the toughest route thus this match would be born……….

Seth has improved tremendously as an in ring competitor, he’s always been really good on the mic, he’s had his fair share of moments where you didn’t know how to feel about him, but then later won us over with just being Seth Freaking Rollins and now we will watch as he tries to slay the beast once and for all, his determination to dethrone the beast incarnate from ruling over the WWE and bringing terror everywhere he steps………

Is quite the bravery I must say and I wait for the day, that is this Sunday where we will finally see Suplex City burned to the ground and we hear those sweet sweet words BURN IT DOWN as the village chants in happiness and joy as the beast finally becomes the vanquished one.

Prediction: In translation if you guys couldn’t understand what I was going on about, which i’m sure you picked it up, but just in case, no worries i’ll explain it, my prediction is that Seth defeats Lesnar this Sunday, because i’m tired of seeing him as the Universal Champion, especially when we only see the title every once in a blue moon, if you want us to start taking the title seriously, give it to someone who will bring (as the Miz would say) prestigious value to it instead of only getting to see the title every few months, at this point the Universal Championship is like a special guest.

And with that line you should know, that should not be the case, it’s a championship title, not a visit to your nan’s house or a some kind of unannounced family member who decided to drop by on the most awkward day of the week………the one I want to win is pretty obvious at this point.

The New Daniel Bryan Vs Kofi Kingston (WWE Championship)

Now this is the match that everyone wanted, needed and was begging for Daniel Bryan Vs Kofi Freaking Kingston for the WWE Championship!!

It took a whole lot of arm crawls up the hill, a whole lot of obstacles in his way and a whole lot of opponents to face just for Kofi to get this match, even though he had gotten through them all, there was always something that kept trying to keep him from reaching this point…….

11 years Kofi had to fight just to get this opportunity, 11 years Kofi had to watch as others get the WWE Championship, now we know why they call him Mr 24/7 (UpUpDownDown reference)

It’s because no matter how much they tried to keep him from getting the title, no matter the amount of twist and turns, roadblock after roadblock, after roadblock, he never stopped trying, He was a replacement for Mustafa Ali in the Elimination Chamber where we saw him almost capture the title when he and Daniel brought the house down.

He then was given an earned opportunity to face Daniel at Fastlane, which was ripped from him when Vince McMahon replaced him with Kevin Owens, then at the Fastlane PPV, it seemed like he was finally going to be given his shot at the Championship, until Vince again screwed him over by getting his hopes up only to be baited into a handicap match against The Bar……….then he was put into a Gauntlet Match which should’ve been his golden ticket to finally getting an opportunity at WrestleMania……..

Which he earned, but of course was screwed out of it again when he had last minute opponent that was Daniel Bryan, losing that one, mind you he faced 5 opponents prior to Daniel Bryan……….then we got our last opportunity for Kofi to be able to go on to WrestleMania and face off against Daniel Bryan, but it would not be in Kofi’s hands……ohhhh…..noooo

That oppurtuinity would be in the hands of his fellow partners Big E & Xavior Woods (the other halves of the New Day) to compete in a gauntlet match and help Kofi go to WrestleMania after they were considering leaving WWE due to Vince being unfair to them and Kofi as well.

If they were victorious in defeating all of their opponents, Kofi would be heading to WrestleMania, however if they failed, Kofi would no longer be given another opportunity in the WWE…………….it was a hard match, but the New Day pushed through it, they did get put into a table, well Big E did by the Bar, even though they had two more opponents to face off against……

Their next opponents would be non other than their good time rivals that were the Usos, but surprisingly they forfeited the match, because they knew Kofi Kingston deserves to me at WrestleMania and the last opponents would be non other the Daniel Bryan and Rowan who is always with Daniel………..and even though Daniel tried everything to keep the New Day from winning and Kofi from facing him at WrestleMania in the end the New Day won when Rowan got counted out of the match……….

Which gave is our KofiMania dream, a lot of obstacles he had to overcome and he finally was given his chance all thanks to Big E and Xavior woods.

Also it’s pretty ironic that Daniel is the one telling Kofi he’s a B+ player that’s pretty Rich coming from him, considering that, he was Kofi at one point where everyone thought he was a B+ player and didn’t deserve the title, but I mean I guess it makes sense that it would be Daniel saying it, it’s kinda like Triple H Vs Daniel Bryan back in 2014 all over again, only this time Daniel’s Triple H and Kofi is Daniel, it so crazy seeing the tables turn there.

Prediction: Now with that long introduction on Kofi’s journey, you probably think i’m going to want him to win, well let me tell you, that’s not true, i’m going for Daniel to win and retain at Mania……..yep…………

HA!! yeah, no i’m just pulling your chain, it’s a no brainer that i’m going for Kofi to win this, he’s been through so much and has done so much just to get to this point in his career, Kofi deserves this moment, he deserves to be WWE Champion and I feel like he will become WWE Champion!!!

It’s going to be a New Day at KofiMania Babbyyyyyy, let’s go!!

Triple H VS Batista No Holds Barred (If Triple H loses he must retire)

I’m going to be completely honest here………….I don’t really care who wins between Batista Vs Triple H, Batista is just a really huge drama queen, he’s been away from the WWE for a good amount of years, then he randomly shows up and demands Triple H give him a match at WrestleMania.

Which Triple H does, Triple H then gives him a stipulation with the match being No Holds Barred and then we had Batista demand a stipulation last Monday on top of that stipulation, telling him to put his career on the line!?………Alright then, I don’t really feel anything with Batista, I like his theme song, that’s pretty much it, but since he returned I don’t know there’s just something about him that makes me want to tell him to go somewhere.

I’m not bothered on him being in the WWE, he wants Triple H’s career on the line, but what he doesn’t know is that Triple H barely even compete’s anymore, so whether he wins or loses I don’t think it’s going to bother Triple H, but that being said, I do look forward to watching this match, I just don’t care who wins it between the two.

Kurt Angle Vs Baron Corbin (Kurt’s Retirement Match)

So everyone was pretty surprised and not all that happy when Kurt announced that Baron Corbin would be his opponent in his very last match in the WWE, as he would be retiring at WrestleMania. He’s had a long career Kurt, I mean he won a gold medal with a broken freaking neck talk about dedication right there………

It’s crazy to think he returned back in 2017 after being inducted into the Hall Of Fame and then later on became GM and then an in ring competitor again and now he’ll be having his farewell match this Sunday…………

There’s so many moments Kurt Angle brought to us while in the WWE and they will always be something we will look back on, along with all of his greatest match as well, it’ll be sad seeing him retire, but at least we have this Sunday to look forward to……….now when it comes to Baron Corbin, well he’s a different story and I don’t really know how exactly to talk about Corbin so let’s just get into the predictions for this match shall we!?

Predictions: This is a bit hard to choose from because I feel it could go two ways, although it would be real nice seeing Kurt Angle win his farewell match, I don’t know Kurt could possibly pass Corbin the torch here come Sunday leaving Corbin to gloat every single week about it oooor we could have Angle beat Baron and humiliate him…….

While giving us a really good farewell match as well, either way I don’t really mind which way this match goes, but if I had to choose who i’d want to win, I think I would want Kurt to have good send off and win his farewell match, we’ll see what happens!!!

Drew McIntyre Vs Roman Reigns:

As we all know Drew McIntyre has been pretty on top of things lately, we all knew him as one of the 3MB members, he then went away from WWE for sometime and then later returned after a good amount of years, came back and was on NXT and now he’s on the main roster.

He then paired up with Dolph Ziggler for sometime, even winning the Raw tag team championships I believe, then those two split because of Drew and then he temporarily joined forces with Baron Corbin and Bobby Lashley, which lead to a feud between them and the Shield, once Roman returned and of course the Shield one because their the Shield, but now Drew’s out trying to ruin peoples careers………….

After Lashley, Corbin and McIntyre’s defeat at Fastlane thanks to Roman, Dean & Seth, the night after Fastlane………Roman was scheduled to face off against Baron Corbin after being away from the ring for 5 months at the time I believe recovering from his fight with Leukemia.

The Shield had just said their final farewell as a stable, with them moving on to go and do other things, Seth preparing for Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania to get the Universal title from him, Dean deciding on where he wanted to go next in his career and Roman wanting to focus on getting back into singles action after being away for so long………

Fast forward Roman is in the ring ready for his match, he waits for Baron Corbin to get into the ring, only to be surprised by an ambush from behind by Drew McIntyre, raining on Roman’s return back as a singles competitor and that’s the reason why we now have this match happening…….well with the request of Drew McIntyre is the reason we’re getting this match.

Predictions: This match could go two ways, either McIntyre defeats Roman, to continue on being this dominate force that he’s been built up to be oooor Roman wins this showing us that it doesn’t matter if you find yourself kicked down or stopped in your tracks along your journey, you can still come back and kick ass………….

This is hard (she says for the 3rd-4th time) Drew has been given this huge momentum since coming to the main roster and I have to be honest he’s been doing one hell of a job with that momentum too, the persona he’s gotten makes him seem a little unstoppable here, that being said……….

Roman he’s been through a lot, after just winning the Universal Championship he had to relinquish the title due to his Leukemia returning and having to take time off to recover and then later returning 2 months ago to tell us he’s in remission, which was the best news for everyone, but not as great as it was for Roman………..

He’s been through one tough rollercoaster ride and now that he’s back in the ring, ready to go, that’s it, once we see an ounce of momentum from him, we know that he’s not going to stop once he’s started.

This match is one of the tough ones to predict, but because I love Roman and because he’s one of my favorites, i’m going with the Big Dog here in this matchup, although Drew’s been on top of his game lately, I can’t go against Roman, plus I look forward to seeing him give McIntyre a taste of his own medicine especially after what he did to him and everything……..

Bobby Lashley Vs Finn Balor (Intercontinental Championship)

I don’t have anything to say as to introduce my predictions on this match, like I did with the other predictions, but I do have one thing that i’d like to say and that is, why did WWE feel the need to express that Finn would be arriving at Mania as the Demon King……..why!? Why not have where Lashley now knows he’s up against the Demon king at WrestleMania!?

They could have had it be a surprise, they could’ve had Lashley so off his game because he wouldn’t have saw this coming, this could’ve been Finn’s secret weapon here………..I just don’t get it, i’ll get back to this in my highlights for Raw & SDL, but for now let’s just get to the prediction……..

Prediction: I want Finn to win and regain the title……that’s it, that’s my prediction, I didn’t think he had a long enough run with title before so, I want him to win this match.

Shane McMahon Vs The Miz (Falls Count Anywhere Match)

Shane McMahon now known as the best in the worrrrld!!! Vs the A-lister and the must see WWE Superstar on tv The Miz………….former SDL Tag Team Champions and now they’re rivals………..no one would’ve saw Miz and Shane teaming coming and when it did it was weird, but also surprisingly nice to see, we didn’t think they’d work well as a team when put together, but hey we sure were proven wrong when seeing them in action together.

I remember saying how they just looked like a very odd pair, but once I saw how well of a team they were, well I still thought they were an odd pairing, (not as much as Gable and Roode of course, because that’s a real odd pair there) but I actually liked seeing Shane and Miz as a tag team, I got more use to seeing them working together than Roode and Gable, still can’t get use to them as a team, but I don’t mind them.

But back to Miz and Shane………who would’ve saw Shane turning on Miz coming after they lost and failed to regain the the titles back from the Usos after losing it to them at Elimination Chamber. I did not see Shane turning coming, if anyone would’ve turned I thought it’d be the Miz, but no it was Shane and that was surprising……..

I mean we all know Shane is capable of being a mean guy…….heel is what I mean, but he also plays the good guy really well too, which is why it was shocking seeing him just brutally attack Miz in his hometown the way he did, it’s like a switch had been turned on randomly and you just watched a completely different person appear in front of you.

I mean you look at Shane and he just doesn’t seem like this guy that would go ambushing people, unless he was provoked then you’re like, watch out for Shane, but randomly ambushing, can’t wrap my head around that, but it happened and that’s why we’re getting this match, demanded by Shane too.

Now let’s go to the Miz, because it was 2 weeks ago where he just wow’d me and i’m sure everyone else who watched his promo addressed to Shane when he talked about having to earn his way to where he is, as well as well as his father’s love. We all know how great Miz is on the mic, they way he delivers his promo’s is undeniably great, he’s just hands down one of the greatest when it comes to mic work and he’s also pretty great in ring too.

Miz knows how to bring the heat wherever he goes, whether he’s a face or a heel and that’s why people love and hate him, but like he said whether you cheer or boo him, you can’t deny his work ethic, because he’s always on the ball with everything that he does and it’s great.

Predictions: I’m going to go for The Miz to win this match, I feel he needs a redemption from last time, I mean he got pinned twice by the Usos and attacked in his hometown, so I think he needs this win, I feel this is going to be one of those tough matches, especially since it’s a falls count anywhere match and with Shane and Miz we know they both know how to perform well when in a match, so I know that it’ll be an interesting one, but I think Miz can win this, we’ll have to wait and see though.

Samoa Joe Vs Rey Mysterio (United States Championship)

I don’t have a lot to say with this match, we all know Samoa Joe became the United States Champion when he won a fatal 4 way on Smackdown Live out beating Andrade Cien Almas, Rey Mysterio and R-Truth who was the champion at the time only he wasn’t the one that got pinned for Joe to get the title and as for Rey he tried getting the title from Joe at Fastlane, but wasn’t quite successful, but was given a rematch for it at WrestleMania.

Now i’ve notice that Rey Mysterio’s son has been tagging along with him and the reason for that is because he’s training to become a wrestlers himself, which is nice that he wants to follow in Rey’s footstep, it’s crazy because I didn’t realize when Rey was being interviewed that the person standing next to him was his son Dominic, he’s grew so much from the last time we saw him in the WWE and that was many, many years ago, crazy!!

Prediction: I don’t know who I want to win here, I think i’m just gonna watch this one and see how this match turns out, I will say this though, I have some weird feeling that Dominic is gonna somehow get involved in this match.

Whenever Rey would be interviewed, he always spoke about Samoa Joe so, I wouldn’t be surprised if he decided to get himself involved sometime during the matchup, plus if he’s training to become a wrestler, you know something’s bound to happen, I could be wrong but i’ll still be keeping my eye’s out for anything trickery to go down or something……….

The Boss ‘n’ Hug Connection (Sasha Banks & Bayley) VS Divas of Doom (Beth Phoenix & Natalya) Vs The IIconics Vs Tamina & Nia Jax (Fatal 4 Way Women’s Tag Team Championships Match)

Well, well, weeeell………a fatal 4 way Women’s tag team championship match, it shouldn’t have had to be a fatal 4 way, but it’s what we’re getting not that i’m complaining………I think Sasha and Bayley have done a pretty nice job at keeping the title, they were the first women to become the Women tag team champion back at Elimination Champber and they’ve had a pretty good reign with it too……….

Nia and Tamina they’ve just been out for revenge to get the title, Natalya and Beth they pretty much were just added to this match after Beth came out of retirement and the IIconics they earned their spot to be in this match after pinning Sasha and Bayley during their match on Smackdown Live 2 weeks ago, in all honesty I think this match should’ve just been team vs team Bayley and Sasha Vs The IIconics considering they were the ones that fairly beat Sasha and Bayley, but a fatal 4 way is fine………

Prediction: This ones a little hard, but i’m either going for Bayley and Sasha to retain or for the IIconics to win the titles, as for Natalya and Beth and Nia Jax and Tamina I don’t know I feel like they should’ve had their own separate match, since they were the ones that had a problem with one another, for them to be added to this match,

I don’t know, plus Nia and Tamina already got a title shot and Beth and Natalya even though they’ve been friends for years for them to just be given a shot at the title after they’ve just gotten back together as a team, I feel they should’ve just went against Nia and Tamina and then went after the titles later, I mean if Beth is going to be wrestling for a while, they could’ve just came back to it afterwards, but we’ll see what happens………

Buddy Murphy Vs Tony Nese (Cruiserweight Championship)

I don’t really have a pick for this match, I stopped watching 205 Live for a good while so I don’t really know what’s happening in the Cruiserweight Division so whoever wins is alright with me!!

I know that Buddy Murphy has been Cruiserweight Champion for a good while so i’m going to guess that he’s having a good title reign, as for Tony Nese I know how good he is because i’ve watched him perform before, but good luck to both Murphy and Nese during this match.

The Andre The Giant Battle Royal and The Women’s Annual Battle Royal:

And last, but not least, when it comes to both the Men and Women’s Battle Royal, there’s a lot of people there so i’m just going to watch to see, but if any of my favorites are in there, i’m gonna go with them to win.

If i’m being honest here, I don’t really get why the women’s have a battle royal when there aren’t really many of them in it, it’s literally like 8 to 10 (well I counted it’s actually 13) in the battle Royal, I mean I get them wanting everyone to be apart of WrestleMania, but still, it’s not going to mean anything they were all just added to one just for the sake of it……..

Whoever wins is going to just say “I won a battle royal at Wrestlemania”

They could’ve had them fight for something like how the men are fighting to be called the Andre The Giant Memorial winner, like I know that’s a different thing and it’s to honor Andre The Giant, but if they are just going to throw the remaining Women’s division into a battle royal without really anything to it, it just make people see it as unimportant and it shouldn’t be like that, but who knows maybe the battle Royal will be good one, but we’ll just have to wait and see on that come, well tomorrow night……..

That’s all of my predictions for Wrestlemania, tomorrow’s PPV is going to be one heck of a show, hopefully most of my predictions here are right, but we’ll see, I look forward to watching what goes down tomorrow, I can’t wait for the Women’s main event, can’t wait for Kofi Vs Bryan and so many other matches it’s gonna be good, hopefully we get a few surprises, but we’ll see.

My Blank Cardboard Piece, Is Molly Mahoney’s Block Of Wood From Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium……..

Originally Written April 3 2019

Confused right!? Well if you don’t know about this movie, don’t worry I didn’t know about it either until I came across it randomly I think last weekend or something, I think I had just finished watching another movie and that had come on, being it was my first time watching it, I wasn’t sure what the movie was going to be like, I remember when it first started though I was confused on what exactly was going on.

The opening to it was just very bizarre, I had my tv muted and with it being muted, the intro to it seemed to just go on forever, every time I glanced up at my tv. Now when the movie did finally start, I wasn’t really paying that much attention to it at first, but then I ended getting curious about it whenever I would stare at my tv, so I unmuted it and started paying attention to it a bit more and I gotta say after watching it………

I thought it turned out to be a very good movie in the end actually, the story and meaning behind it was just very heartfelt i’ll say, it actually got me emotional, shocker I know haha……..I don’t get emotional over anything, who says that I have a soft heart and that I can be a pretty good emotional wreck most of the time, come on pffff stop it, I don’t do that………..crazies.

Back to the post though, Mr Magorium’s Wonder Emporium, sure is some movie, now i’ve never really done a review with movies, almost did, but I ended up never sharing it i’ll be honest here, i’m not going to do a review for this movie, but I do want to talk about one of the main big parts about the movie, but before I get to that, let me just briefly try to sum up the whole premise of it.

The movie is based around different characters you have the main character Mr Magorium who is and i’ll quote what is says in the summary for the movie the store’s 243-year-old proprietor, then you have the second main character who is Molly Mahoney and the two supporting characters by the name of Henry Weston and Eric Applebaum……..

The character however that I want to discuss is Molly………so Mr Magorium is leaving his famous magical toy store and wants to pass it down to Molly who works alongside him as the manager of the store, he passes it down to her without her even knowing about it as well as not even knowing he’s leaving the store all together………now Molly her character……..is a real special kind of character, when I watched this movie I connected pretty well with her, it’s really weird how much I connected to her, but I did.

Molly happens to be this former child piano prodigy who is a little stuck in her life and doesn’t really see herself as much more than just a former piano player. Now Mr Magorium and Molly’s relationship in the movie, is probably to me one of the best, if you happen to watch the movie you’ll understand what I mean when I say that.

In the beginning of the movie, she meets up with him and talks to him about the way she’s feeling, telling him that “she’s stuck” to where he then leads her someplace and he gives her this huge block of wood as a gift…….which she accepts with good heart.

He then tells her “unlikely adventures, require unlikely tools” she asks if they’re going on an adventure, he tells her they’re already on one, then gives her something else to take with her, saying “With faith, love, this block, (the one she holds) and accountant mutant……you may find yourself somewhere you’ve never imagined.”

You can watch that scene here:

Mr Magorium Gives Molly A Block Of Wood

I gotta say watching that scene again made me laugh and smile because it’s a pretty nice scene between the two, but to kinda sum up everything, this whole movies is pretty based around the store being passed down to Molly and her not really seeing herself as this person that’s capable of running the store the way Magorium has and just not seeing herself as this more than kind of person that he’s sees her as.

Even though he knows that she’s full of wonders, she in herself does not see nor believe it……….however there’s this one part of the movie where she tries to really understand what it is that Magorium sees in her, asking Henry the accountant who doesn’t know how to have fun (a.k.a the just guy)

Molly asks him what it is that he sees when he looks at her, which he just goes on to compliment her and she laughs about it, but asks him if whether he was able to see some kind of sparkle from her, to where he answers confusedly what kind of sparkle she means………where she answers “something reflective of something bigger that’s trying to get out” but then just turns away from the conversation in the end.

“Do You See A Sparkle!?” Scene Henry & Molly (Store Scene)

It’s a real good scene because it’s like even though she continuously thinks she isn’t this more than kind of person, you see that she does wonder about having that sparkle and wants to be more than what she believes herself to only be…………there’s a few times where she does things that she doesn’t notice because it’s just naturally coming out of her, but she still has a lot of that self doubt that makes her believe that there’s no sparkle……..

Now there’s a part that I don’t want to spoil because I really feel like you guys should check this movie out, because you might enjoy it, so i’m just going to say this, it takes a whole lot of convincing to her, for Molly to really embrace and truly see what it was that Magorium actually saw in her, for her to finally understand that she was more than what she believed herself to be………….now going back to what I said earlier…………

I really connected with Molly and you know this is probably going to sound really cheesy or weird, but do you ever get that thing where, you’re feeling or thinking something and you end up coming across something else that is pretty based off what it was you were just thinking or feeling, as if you were supposed to come across it, you know what I mean!?

Stuff like that, when I came across this movie, I was feeling pretty down and I remember that because, I had just finish speaking with my boyfriend about what I was feeling, I was a little bit of a mess and was just in my head about things and so I decided to watch a movie for some reason to relax for the night and then this movie was just about to come on, mind you I had never seen this movie ever so I didn’t know what exactly it was going to be about, until I actually sat and watched it and when I did it was like “woah”

So i’m guessing, well not guess I feel like that movie was there for me to watch and I know that probably sounds really weird and everything, but I don’t know, they say things aren’t a coincidence right!? Maybe that wasn’t a coincidence, I felt something that day and then this movie happened to be playing, what are the odds of that!?

Originally I wasn’t going to even bother watching it, I was planning on changing it actually, but I don’t know I felt the need to want to check it out and i’m glad that I did, because it was a really great movie and I really did enjoy it, I enjoyed it so much I rated it on my tv.

I really like the meaning behind it and the story telling of it, i’m surprised that I didn’t catch this movie when I was younger, you would think I would see this movie around the time it came out, but hey it came around at some point for me to watch so.

If you’re still confused about the title, well i’ll explain, so I was stressing out, had a bit of a scattered mind the other day, actually it was yesterday (now the other day) but I said this in my latest post that I wrote, that whenever I get overwhelmed I go into an organizing/cleaning mode.

So the other day, I felt the need to organize things and we had these boxes that were in the kitchen for a good amount of time, one was broken and the other hadn’t been used yet. Part of the one that was broken I threw out, but there was another part from it that I well………kept, you might be asking why I kept it and that’s because when I saw it, the first thing I thought about was the block of wood that Mr Magorium gave Molly in the movie.

I remember staring at it for a good while just to kinda give me something else to focus on for a bit to get out of my head and then after a bit I just kinda went back into my brain anyway, but I then later brought the cardboard piece in my room and i’ve been glancing at it every now again since then and it may sound weird, but when I look at it, I smile.

Call me a nerd or weird if you want, that’s fine I don’t mind, but just like the title says, my blank cardboard piece is Molly Mahoney’s block of wood…….

Let’s Talk Wrestling: Dean Ambrose

Originally Written Mar 6

Hey everyone hope you’re doing well and everything……..so I felt the need to talk about this separately, because I was getting very fired up about this topic on my wrestling highlight post, I was highlighting Raw & Smackdown from 2 weeks ago, you’ll probably read that one later after reading this post, depending on which one I want to share first, but let’s just jump into this because I want to share some thoughts with you guys on it……….

Alright so Dean Ambrose, let’s just sit and talk about him for a bit……..so for those who don’t know, which i’m sure is a lot of you……….when I use to tune in to wrestling everyday, one of my all time favorite wrestlers was Dean Ambrose and I when I say fan, I seriously mean fan, he’s still is one of my favorites til this day!! We all have specific people we become drawn to for some unknown reason and for me Dean Ambrose was one of those people.

Now i’m going to try and keep this post from sounding super ranty because I want to make good points with this, i’m not sure if I will do so, but i’m going to try okay………..Some people may say that Dean Ambrose is overrated and isn’t that great, me however, I would differ………I feel Dean is actually very underrated and is still great, he puts over a lot of superstars, without ever complaining………Dean doesn’t care to be the greatest, he just does his own thing and just goes with things and I think that’s one of the reasons why I became so drawn to him……….you see, he has a story Dean Ambrose.

Same with other wrestlers and people, but with Dean his story is very interesting, it’s to the point where he makes you want to look more into it, as well as wanting to get to know the person that he is apart from being known as just a wrestler. We all know Dean keeps everything to himself, he doesn’t boast about things, he prefers to just keep his private life private, which makes you think, maybe we should take a page out of his book at times, you know!?

I could talk about Dean all day if I wanted to, believe me, but i’m just gonna skip over and talk about what I came here to talk about, which is his character development…………I already talked a bit about this in my highlights so i’m going to try not to repeat what I already said, but I don’t know what the heck they are doing when it comes to Dean’s character………

I really don’t, like can anyone tell me what goes on in creatives brain when it comes to Dean Ambrose!? Anyone!? *breath and go* every time I watch Dean’s matches it’s like I get excited because I know Dean is good, I know how great of a performer he is in the ring……….people may say he’s not good, but he is, he just has a unique (in my opinion) fighting style.

Dean is a brawler type, so he goes everywhere when he throws punches and maybe a lot of people don’t like that about him or maybe they just don’t like his character, I don’t know, everyone has different opinions on people………but me, I know how good Dean is, i’ve seen him have really great matches, we’ve all seen him have great matches at some point in his career, it’s every time he faces of against Seth Rollins, it’s every time he puts his heart out there and just goes with things and you see it turn into something you wouldn’t expect.

Dean is someone you have to really look deeply at to know what he’s thinking and what he plans on doing, if you don’t get to know him on a deeper level to what he is as a person and as a wrestler, you’re gonna be confused and you’re not gonna get it……..Dean Ambrose isn’t just a character, that’s him, with Dean what you see, that is what you’re getting and again I said this in my highlights, but it’s frustrating to see one of your favorite not just wrestlers, but person as well, get treated the way they are.

You can feel Dean wants a little more than what he’s been given and I think he deserve it, if they’re not going to help him find a better way to develop his character, why don’t they just let him do it himself and improvise, they let Bray Wyatt do it, why not let Dean do the same!? I’ll be honest here, although I still consider Dean as one of my all time favorite wrestlers, I did also go off him a bit and when that happened I felt really bad………

It felt like I was giving up on him in a way and I don’t want to give up on Dean, because he is a really great talent and I still believe in him and I still see something there as well. It’s just sad because Dean use to be seen as an equal to both Roman & Seth (two other members of the Shield that are also my favorites) but it’s like now he doesn’t even compare to them, like he’s not on their level and that’s not how it should be, he should be seen as “i’m just as good as my brothers are” but it shouldn’t be just as good either………..

I feel Dean is now being overlooked in a sense and it’s just a shame to see, because I don’t know about you guys, but I know that there’s so much more to Dean then quick matches that seem to last for about a minute or 2 and it’s not memorable. Dean’s matches shouldn’t be forgotten, they shouldn’t just be seen as “well that was alright” We should be looking forward to watching his matches, I want to be excited about watching a Dean Ambrose match.

I want that surprise and badass brawler who doesn’t care about what he does and just gives that fight back to whoever he’s facing, give us that heart again from him, gives us that “i’m not going to stop until I get what I want” bring us that fire and fight back in his eyes that he had when he first arrived, GIVE US SOMETHING!!!

I’m not trying to sound ranty, i’m really not, believe me, but when it comes to Dean i’m just really passionate about the way he’s being treated, I want to see the best out of him, I want to see him and say “That’s the Dean Ambrose we know” because I know that he has more to him than what we see only on a weekly or in my case somewhat basis……….

ο»ΏDean Ambrose Vs Seth Rollins (WWE World Heavyweight Championship Ladder Match At Money In The Bank 2015)

You know what moments I remember from Dean, I remember that guy who when he and Seth had that ladder match at Money In The Bank for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship (2015) both him and Seth holding on to the title from the top of the ladder, both come crashing down onto the mat, no one is sure on who got the title……..turned out to be Seth in the end………..the heart he had there in that match, seeing how hurt he was knowing he didn’t get it, like I wanted to cry with Dean when that happened………and let’s not forget the speech he gave afterwards letting us know that, he would be champion no matter what it took!!!

That’s the Dean I want to see again……….I also remember that match he had at Elimination Chamber, against Seth again and the fight he gave Seth in that match, he was out numbered because of J & J security and I think Kane too (can’t remember if Kane was there at the time) I know Roman came to his rescue, but anyway the fight he gave Seth and him thinking he won the match in the end and how happy and excited he was, that made me happy……….and emotional thinking he won that match.

Dean Ambrose Vs Seth Rollins (WWE World Heavyweight Championship at Elimination Chamber 2015)

Everything he had to endure and thinking in that moment he had finally captured the title, that was the best feeling……….but then of course it turned out he didn’t win and my heart broke there and I was super upset………Dean though did not let that stop him, he felt he won and stole Seth title, which was hilarious and flipping awesome too………THAT’S the Dean that I want to see again!!

I want to see the Dean Ambrose who got so furious at Bad News Barrett when he was going after the Intercontinental Championship and was just going on a mad one because he felt that Bad New Barrett, didn’t deserve the IC title. Those are the moments I think about when thinking about how great Dean Ambrose is, that’s the Dean I feel we need back, the fight, the don’t give a crap attitude, things like that.

Bad News Barrett Vs Dean Ambrose Fastlane 2015 (Intercontinental Championship)

I realized that every single moment I talked about here when talking about Deans memorable moments, they were all from 2015…………again why!? I still believe in Dean Ambrose and I still feel like there’s still a lot left in him, I just hope that WWE creatives find something for him soon, because I hate watching Dean’s matches knowing that he’s just having matches just to have matches, I would love to see him in some kind of feud, actual feud where there’s a good story to it and to where we get to see Dean…….be Dean.

Dean deserves to have good feuding matches he can get invested in…..now who knows maybe all of what’s happening is going to lead to something good for Dean, I don’t know, I have no idea what’s going on behind the scenes, maybe right now this is what we’re getting and who knows maybe a little bit later, we might just have the best Dean Ambrose transformation before our eyes regarding where they’re going with his character…….

He was meant to be a New Dean Ambrose I know when he returned, but i’m not sure if that’s happened yet, in all honesty I missed a lot of wrestling so it probably happened already and now this is what we got, it always happens like that you miss a good amount and great things happen, you come back to it after a while and you’re seeing great things still happen, but also see room for improvements………I really want there to be a sliver-lining to where we get the best Dean we’ve ever seen (yeah I know that rhymed)

The only thing we can do is just see how his character continues to unfold, at the moment……..I don’t know what to think, sometimes Dean has really enjoyable matches and other times, it’s on the okay or could’ve been better side of town, I want to believe that Dean’s going to be treated better and I really do hope that he does, because he doesn’t deserve these random matches, he deserves matches that have something to them and are going to help his character and not destroy it…………..

Dean Ambrose Wins The Money In The Bank Contract At Money In The Bank 2016

Final Thoughts: Last thing before I sign out from this post, maybe Drew McIntyre will be his next feud, maybe they’ll come up with an interesting story for them, i’m just hoping that if Dean does feud with McIntyre or a different opponent, it doesn’t matter who……..I just want it to be something we not only look forward to, but also something we can get invested in………but for now we’ll just have to wait and see what happens with Dean and hopefully it’s not what everyone keeps speculating about……….I really hope it’s not that because that would be a really great talent wasted if that happens……

Dean Cashes In His Money In The Bank Contract The Same Night Seth Rollins Beat Roman For It and Wins The WWE Championship At Money In The Bank 2016

P.S. I almost forgot Dean won the WWE Championship at Money In The Bank 2016 after he gained the contract successfully to then later cash in on Seth who beat Roman for it in the same night, don’t know why I forgot that, I was happy when Dean got the contract and was happy when he won the title the same day………..wow

Let’s Talk Sports……Football (Soccer) Manchester United

Written Jan 13, 2019

Yeah this is a topic I didn’t think of ever talking about, now i’m not a HUGE sports person, i’ve never played sports unless it was just for fun you know, when it comes to watching it though, i’ve only ever took interest in watching certain sports programmes which, I didn’t think I’d ever watch sports, considering I was never really interested in playing them, but I guess you can still watch it without having to actually play sports, I mean there’s no rule saying you can’t watch sports if you haven’t played it right!?

If there was, that wouldn’t really be fair now would it!? Luckily there is no such rule so we’re good here. The main sports that i’ve watched and got into were wrestling of course and surprisingly football and before you think i’m talking about American football, i’m not, i’m actually talking about football, football you know soccer as it’s also called over here.

Now I don’t watch football (soccer) all the time, when I do decide to watch a match though, I actually do enjoy it, I started watching football more because of my boyfriend, he loves the sport and when I say loves it, I mean HE LOVES IT!!! Try having an argument with him about football, yeeeeah you’ll either be there for a while or you’re just not going to win, that’s how passionate he is about it, his favorite team is Manchester United and when it comes to United and him, don’t cross the line is all i’m saying.

He also plays football as well and that’s why i’m kinda into a bit, because it being his thing, like I said though I don’t really watch it often, however I did have a time where I took a huge interest in watching it everyday, but just certain matches. Last year was the first time I actually watched the whole Fifa tournament game and it was actually very interesting, I never would have imagined myself being so invested in watching football like that, but it was enjoyable, i’ll tell you that.

It’s been a while since I watched a football match, today was actually the first time since Fifa that I went and watched a match, only watched it because United was playing today and so I could support my guys team, plus I actually wanted to watch it, it’s been a while you know. They went against Tottenham today and United won 1-0, they really played a good game in my opinion, Rashford scored a real nice goal or in my boyfriend words a class goal, thanks to a very good pass by Pogba might I add and the goal keeper David de Gea who I had to look up because I couldn’t remember his name, made Man of The Match.

Every time the other team tried to score, he was just there saving the ball left and right, 11 goals saves he made, that’s pretty good!! If you watched the game you’ll know what i’m talking about, also as you can probably tell i’m pretty new still with football so my way of explaining the game may not be interesting and it might not have made sense, but that’s just how i’m able to explain how the game went.

I’m glad United won, although I do feel a little bad for the other players from the other team, two different injuries while the game was happening, one from a player who’s name I can’t remember, I think he pulled his groin, in the middle of the match, he did try to keep playing, but as much as he didn’t want to get off the field, you knew if you watched him play it was messing with him, with that kind of thing, you gotta be careful, because you don’t want to go risking stuff like that.

The other injury was from Harry Kane who messed up his ankle in the match as well during the last minutes of the game I think, although I don’t know much about the team, I did watch Harry Kane in the Fifa tournament and to me he’s a good player. He almost scored a goal in todays game, a few times actually, along with some other players on his team as well of course, but he got to the ball a little late for it to be a goal………..I hope both players recover okay though and are doing alright.

Back to United though, they’ve been really stepping it up and have come back pretty strong compared to how they were playing towards the ending of last year, they didn’t quite do the greatest for a bit, that was until they got a new manager that is. After changing managers they’ve really showed everyone not to count them out just yet, some will say there’s some mixed emotions on United and how they came back, but with sports like football, you know that they’ll always be mixed emotions.

Ever since this new manger took over though, they’ve won 6 games in a row, which is pretty darn impressive if you ask me, but i’m probably just being bias here though who knows. However, you can’t deny that United’s been on a roll since this new manger arrived, he’s really fixed up the team nicely, I mean sure they may have a bit more to go with everything, but again compared to how they were playing before, I think they’re doing just fine, with how they’ve been coming back.

Again i’m still new to football so I don’t know a whole lot on the game and everything, I just felt like writing about todays game between United and Tottenham and I guess I wanted to talk about football a bit, i’m no fanatic with it, but when I do watch it, I enjoy it.

Do you guys enjoy football (Soccer) if so who’s your favorite team if you have one!?

Let’s Talk Video Games: Bendy And The Ink Machine

So i’ve been sitting here, really trying to figure out what it was that I wanted to write about today, no kidding, I literally was going back and forth in my head saying to myself “I don’t know what to write about” I tried coming up with something, I even tried to find some kind of inspiration of some sort, but sometimes it ain’t always easy. I watched a few videos, one of them made me laugh so hard, I went back to the part just to hear it again, ummmm, but yeah…….after I watched that video, I still had trouble figuring out what it was that I wanted to write about.

I thought to myself, “okay let’s see what we can think of” I thought and thought and tried to come up with something, then I had a little idea and said to myself…….”Weeeell Halloween is almost here so maybe we can think of a theme post for it, but I didn’t want to just do one post on Halloween because I also thought that if i’m gonna talk about Halloween I would rather do it on the day of, just to keep the theme, soooo instead of talking about Halloween as a whole, I thought maybe we can talk horror games kinda. Now before we talk horror games, I just want to let you know i’m not a huge fan of them, surprising I know, you’re probably thinking “Why talk horror games then, if you don’t like horror things!?” Okay yeah, you have a point with that question if you’re asking it, i’ll try and explain.

Okay so YEAH i’m not really fond of anything scary, it’s just not my thing, buuut sometimes there’s an exception to things, like for example when a game is played by one of my favorite Youtubers. Sometimes things or in this case a video game catches your attention and although you know it’s gonna be creepy and you’re gonna be scared while watching it……….you still end watching it anyway because……..well…..it looks pretty interesting so why not!? Now the game that i’ll be touching up upon is called Bendy and The Ink Machine, now i’m not sure if you heard of it or not, but for those who have, for most people it’s probably not that scary, but we all know that some people are different so to those people it might be.

Now there’s a lot of Youtubers who play video games and i’m sure that a lot of them also played Bendy and The Ink Machine, but the Youtuber I prefer to watch goes by the name of Jacksepticeye, I watch a lot of his videos and I have a few that are my favorite, but today we’ll just discuss Bendy. I actually finished watching the last part to that game yesterday and it was pretty interesting, yeah sure there was a lot of stuff that startled me…..okay not startled, but you know like where I jumped, which I don’t like doing mind you, but don’t worry I was cool as cool can be…….okay maybe less then that.

Anytime I watch Jack play a game that isn’t normally what i’d watch, especially when it’s in the horror category, I always react to everything he does in those games when he plays them, which i’m sure a lot of people do with their favorite Youtubers as well. Even though I do get startled, I seem to somehow enjoy them still, depending on what the game is though and Bendy and The Ink Machine is one of those games, that I enjoyed. It’s very interesting and it’s also a very great game to play or in my case just watch………pfff I wouldn’t dare buy a game that would scare me, i’d watch it though, but I wouldn’t play it myself. Now for some of you who don’t know, Bendy and The Ink Machine is a game that………I don’t really know how to explain it, but i’ll do my best.

Okay so you play as this character name Henry (don’t know his last name) but you play as Henry and you aren’t quite sure why, but you end up in this very old animation studio, where of course you draw and create animations. Now if you ever played or watched someone else play it, you’ll learn that Henry the character use to be one of the animators for the animation studio, you also find that the studio isn’t quite like you remember……….and everyone who use to work there as well, have now been turned into these creepy ink people, well more like creatures, your job in the game is to find something even though you’re not sure what it is you’re meant to find, you also need to survive in the game of course.

In the beginning you don’t even know why you’re there, but for some reason you’re supposed to be there, i’m not gonna spoil it for you, because maybe you’re playing it, but haven’t finished it or you’re thinking of watching it and don’t want to be told on more of what it’s like, I don’t know…….but I will say this because it’s pretty much what you’re gonna be doing or watching in the game, you of course will come face to face with a whoooole lot of ink people which i’m telling you are super creepy, also there’s this cardboard Bendy that is very creepy to look at every time you come across it, like super creepy the smile, just everything……….oh people love pointing out how is eyes look like pac man, which they do actually, very much so.

The whole game is in black and white with a splash of the sepia effect, hopefully i’m not confusing you guys……….the game is pretty much on the old timey scale, so like the very old fashion kind of animations. It’s a great game though, even though it’s creepy and I did get scared a couple times while watching it, I still also enjoyed it, the art style of it is great, the fan art that was created in the game is incredible, very talented people, the music is super creepy, which is saying a lot because it’s meant to be a creepy game, but yeah just everything in that game, was very enjoyable, i’d watch it again…….maybe who knows.

Yeah soooo, that’s pretty much it, oh also the Youtuber Jacksepeticeye the one I talked about, he’s in it, but as one of the voice over tape recorder voices……you’ll know what i’m talking about if you’ve watched or played the game. His name is Finn in the game so if you happen to play or watch someone else play, keep a look out, I hope you enjoyed reading this, I know that it’s a long one, but I still hope that you enjoyed it, I didn’t want to not write anything today and even though I had a hard time figuring out what to write, i’m glad that this came up as an idea, anyway I hope you all have a great night/morning and or evening.

If you’re interested in checking out the game as well as Jacksepticeye’s channel here’s a playlist of the game created by Jack himself: Bendy and The Ink Machine

Random Topic Of The Day: Let’s Talk Video Games And Themes (Animal Crossing One Of My Favorites)

Well hello everyone and welcome to MY BLOG!!! Hope you’re all well, if you’re wondering why I just opened up my blog post that way it’s because while I was writing the first sentence to this blog post, I thought about a Youtuber I enjoy watching his name is MatPat and on his channel he talks about games and films, but he theorizes it and the opening to his videos are “Well hello everyone, welcome to GAME THEORY or FILM THEORY…..you get it haha……if you’re interested in watching his stuff you can find it here Game Theory and here Film Theory I think you’ll enjoy it, at least I hope you do.

Anyway that’s not what I wanted to talk about, it was just something that came to mind so I thought i’d share that with you and it also is a different opening, I hope you enjoyed that, but yeah today’s topic is a random one, that actually just came into my mind literally a few minutes ago (well by the time you read this, those few minutes would have long passed so it just came to me randomly, yeah) i’m not really sure how long this post is gonna be, but yeah we’ll see.

Right now it’s around 2:30pm afternoon time of course and I just started writing…..what you don’t know is i’ve been trying to write for a goood while now, I was hoping that something would come to me to write about and nothing came at least not until now. I thought maybe if I watched a video of some sort there would be some kind of topic I could possibly share my thoughts on and yeahhh…….nothing spark my creativity nor gave me some kind of inspiration, that was until I started listening to some music. Now you’re probably thinking it’s normal music, you know favorite artist kind of music and if you thought that……boy were you wrong, but that’s okay, it happens, no needs to worry (no that’s not a typo I did that on purpose)

The kind of music i’m talking about is theme music, specifically game theme music, why am I talking about game themes, well i’m glad you asked (I know you didn’t ask, but just go with okay) I’m talking about game themes because a game theme inspired this blog post, so I thought i’d just share my thoughts on that with you guys, which I hope you don’t mind…….the game that i’m talking about here just to get to it is Animal Crossing, I don’t know if a lot of you have ever played or heard of the game, but it’s one of my favorite games to play. For those of you who don’t know what the game is about, well you pretty much just build your own town, well at least in the New leaf one, there’s so many different versions of the game, There’s the original Animal Crossing game, then you have Wild World, City Folk and so many others. I would say that it’s one of the best games to play, along with it being addictive when you first start playing it, but it’s fun though.

I haven’t played the game in ages at least not the ones where you build your own town, I just recently started playing Happy Home Designer again and I forgot how fun it was and how much I missed the games. I recently just found this youtuber who plays a lot of different kind of games and does reviews as well for games, but one of the main games that she plays is Animal Crossing and i’m really enjoying her channel, at the moment i’m watching her play ACPC (Animal Crossing Pocket Camp) I just forgot how good Animal Crossing is, just talking about it makes me want to play it again, but yeah i’m getting off track here what I wanted to talk about with the game is the music that plays within the game, it’s soooo goood, SO GOOD. I have certain favorites that I enjoy, if I had to choose one though I would say the cafe music, there’s just something about it that I love it’s great.

The main song that I wanted to talk about, is the one that gave me the idea of this blog post and that song is called 2pm and it’s from City Folk, I think that’s the third installment from the Animal Crossing Series (I checked I think it is yeah) City Folk is probably one of the best Animal Crossing games from the franchise, everyone that’s played the game, would probably rate it as one of their top favorites and I would say it’d be mine as well. Going back to the 2pm song from City Folk, the reason i’m bringing it up is because that theme when you listen to it, fits sooooo well when you have no idea what to do and that’s pretty much what was happening with me today.

I did a few things not a lot, but a bit and after I finished those things I wasn’t quite sure what to do, I cleaned certain parts of my room, getting rid of stuff I didn’t want nor needed, then I came over to my computer to write something and I couldn’t, I literally sat in front of my computer screen and stared at the blank unwritten post, I then went outside sat out there for a few minutes, then came back in hoping that would help and it didn’t, so I just started listening to the Animal Crossing soundtrack i’m not quite sure why but I did and it was an hour long, but yeah I listened to it and when 2pm came on (the song) it gave me an idea to write about Animal Crossing and the music in it, I didn’t think the blog post would be this long though, I guess I must really love the game to write about it.

I started writing this blog post trying to talk about how certain video game themes go with the mood you’re in as with how most songs tend to do as well, but then I realized half way in while writing this post, this just became me fangirling (excitedly freaking out) about the game which I didn’t expect to happen and said to myself I think I should’ve made this into a video instead of writing about it because I feel it would’ve been more of a video idea then a blog post idea, but I had already started writing so much on the topic soooo I just continued, I know that this isn’t really useful information, but it was something that came to mind and I wanted to share it, anyway that’s all I have for today, sorry if this isn’t your kind of read, I just got a little excited about this topic, it’s one of my favorite games……yeah…..anyway I hope you’re all having a lovely day and that you have a great night/morning and or evening.
