“My Victory Over You Means Nothing” A Look into The Undertaker vs. HHH

(Column I wrote for gerweck.net)

On Raw, HHH told the world why he rejected the Undertaker’s challenge to a rematch at Wrestlemania 28. HHH said there was always a chill that went up his spine when he was in his presence. Last week, he didn’t feel the same way as he looked into his eyes and instead felt sad for him. He knows what type of beating he gave the Undertaker last year and now he knows the dead man’s limit. HHH said he would take him out once and for all and suggested that this may be what Taker wants but he won’t be the guy to do it. As HHH leaves, his music stops and the lights go out.

He offers him one more chance at immortality and vows this is not over.

A Personal Retrospective of the 2003 Royal Rumble

The bright lights of Boston Massachusetts’ Fleetcenter shined down on the WWE as the Royal Rumble event brought mayhem, action and excitement to a world wide audience. I attended this event with some good friends and it was quite the show even though it was beyond obvious to me that Brock Lesnar was going to win the Rumble to set up his match with Kurt Angle at Wrestlemania 19.

I was never able to obtain an autograph in all my years of attending events. However, I did witness Booker T and Rob Van Dam trade backstage passes for a huge bag of weed with a fan five hours before the event. Also, I was almost ran over by Ken Shamrock in August of 1997  while crossing the street. Most people would see their life flash before their eyes at this moment. I, on the other hand, marked out like a fanboy in the middle of the street since I was in the presence of the world’s most dangerous man while preventing him from taking a left hand turn onto Canal street.
