Honestly, maybe I just don't pay enough attention anymore, or maybe I just don't care, but I find it interesting that I can still remember just about all the major WWF PPV cards and champions from the beginning through 1998, then things get a bit hazy through 2002, and 2002 through now just seems to run together in my head completely. I could barely even tell you who holds the belts now, or who wrestled in the opener in Wrestlemania 3 years ago, but I can sure as hell tell you off the top of my head that Wrestlemania 8 was held at the Hoosier Dome in Indiana, where Shawn Michaels beat El Matador in the opener and Bret Hart won the IC title from Roddy Piper. I dunno, maybe I'm just getting older and growing out of wrestling, or maybe it just sucks now, sometimes I don't know.

Up until recently, I had no idea what happened at WrestleMania 22

It was Tom Zenk in the Silverdome with the candlestick.

Kane and Big Show vs. Carlito and Chris Masters for the World Tag Team titles.  No wonder the opener's so easily forgettable.

What are the latter doing now?  Jobbing or not even on TV.

It rocked IIRC.

I will eat all of your dicks if Daniel Bryan ACTUALLY cashes in his MITB at Wrestlemania

I can remember that but not who opened Wrestlemania this year. Fun times.

Just recalling and not looking it up, wasn't it Money In The Bank?

Ah yeah, it was.

I was talking with my wife about this last night, how I can remember specific details from things 1999-2003 and nothing recently, it's because everything just flows together lately and it's one big information overload. It's not just wrestling, it's sports, games, really anything in general.

KC, you've also adopted a signature that was an idea created by me.  Your paying homage doesn't make sense if you dislike me.

Too far outside of the triangle?

I was going to make a comment about Windsor being Detroit's waste basket, but you mentioned the Triangle of Terror, so all is forgiven.

Well, if someone said by the end of the year Batista and Punk would be heels, I wouldn't have believe you. On top of that MVP and Henry as faces.

Why not? They're both much better at being heels.

I look at it like Cena, hesitance to turn them because the sell merch, etc.

I remember they were lukewarm on Punk and tested turned him in the summer. And Batista had his chance in 2008 to turn, so I'm surprised they went with it after all in 2009. 2008 just seemed to be the right moment to turn him.
