Let's take a look at some of the past week's biggest and best stories.
- It was a big week for WWE, as more WrestleMania matches became official. Finally, Undertaker accepted Bray Wyatt's challenge, and John Cena beat Rusev so badly, Lana had to say yes to a match. Word is Undertaker has bulked up this year. I'm hoping for a physical match between these two. I've been praying to the Wrestling Gods -- JBL included -- that Rusev gets a win to continue his domination of the WWE.
- Stardust and Daniel Bryan were added to the Intercontinental Title Ladder match. This match is the odds on favorite to steal the show. With seven participants so far, things could get messy, but we have a chance for a real classic here.
- AJ/Paige vs. Bella Twins was also made official. Unfortunately, the Diva's Title is not being defended, instead WWE is pitting their biggest names in the women's division against each other. Probably a pipe dream, but would be nice if they get 10 minutes to work.
- Connor the Crusher will receive the Warrior Award. Classy move by WWE. Watching him pop Triple H in the face and telling AJ "stop your craziness" never gets old.
- WWE named the top 30 matches in WrestleMania history. WWE's countdown lists are sometimes questionable, but the group picked in this one is great. If you need something to get you pumped up for this year's event, go through these matches.
- NXT to take on the indies? Unlikely to kill off indy promotions, WWE does have deep enough pockets to book up top talent as NXT travels the country.
- Speaking of killing off; WWE's legal eagles are looking to trademark the "too sweet" sign. With Young Bucks recently turning down an offer to work NXT, this seems so petty.
- Raw absolutely sucked this past week. Geno graded this week's show an "F", which is a rare occurrence. How rare? Well, in the previous two years, he's only given out two "F's". To have a terrible Raw is not exactly surprising, but when it's weeks before WrestleMania, that's downright awful. I sound like a broken record, but when you have part-timers that aren't on the show -- Sting and Undertaker -- it puts a lot on their opponent to sell the feud. Not to mention, when Brock actually shows up, he's basically an aggressive mime. People wonder why this buildup has been so uneventful...

He’s crazy strong. He’s witty. His wrestling style is super entertaining. He’s smart. He works hard. He’s willing to try all kinds of stuff and is consistently entertaining, whether solo or in teams.
