From the Vault: CM’s Fav Four: WWE Championship Wins at WrestleMania

**Originally written in March 2015**

Welcome back peeps. We continue our stroll down WrestleMania Lane as I take a look at my Fav 4 WWE Championship wins at WrestleMania. This is the title that symbolizes you have made it to the top of WWE. The title was once known as The WWF Championship, The WWE Championship, The Undisputed WWF Championship and now known as the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.  For the sake of this column I’ll be referring to it solely as the WWE Championship to keep things simple.

From the Vault: CM’s Fav Four: WrestleMania Returns

In wrestling a “return” can mean a lot of different things. For the sake of this column it simply means when a Superstar missed at least the previous WrestleMania and came back and had a match at WrestleMania. Think how Chris Jericho didn’t wrestle at WrestleMania XXVII and XXVIII but came back for a wasted match with Fandango at WrestleMania XXIX. I’m using Jericho as an example because he is not on this list. If you’re confused now, you’ll get it by the end. Trust me. Now, Let’s get started. Continue reading

From the Vault: CM’s Fav Four: WrestleMania Moments

This time of year you hear the WWE Superstars talk about having their “WrestleMania Moment”. It is a moment so grand and spectacular that it stands the test of time and is replayed from now until the end of time.

For the sake of this list I will not be listing things like “Daniel Bryan wins the WWE World Heavyweight Championship” because to me that is about the culmination of a journey. That’s a topic I’ll look at in the next edition of CM’s Fav Four. I’m looking to pick out my four favorite moments. A moment being something that happened during the course of a match. A single solitary instance. That is what I’m going for here. Got it? Good. Let’s get started. Continue reading

From the Vault: CM’s Fav Four: WrestleMania Events

Up today are my Fav Four WrestleMania events. As we sit here just three weeks away from WrestleMania Play Button, uh, I mean 31 I want to take a look back at some of my favorite WrestleMania matches, moments, etc. so that’s what we will be doing in the coming weeks.

What makes an event a favorite of yours is very subjective. You could have been there live. It could be the night your favorite WWE Superstar won the big one or you could just really like the matches that were on the card. So, let’s get started. Continue reading

From the Vault: CM’s Fave Four: Shane McMahon Matches

**Originally written in February 2016**

Welcome back to CM’s Fave Four. It’s a long overdue welcome back as I haven’t written one of these in about a year. It is WrestleMania season so I’d like to be more active writing here on TJR. I figured bringing back this column would be a quick and fun way to do that. Basically, I pick a topic and countdown my four favorite matches/moments/whatever from that given topic.

For the return of CM’s Fave Four I’ll be looking at a man that just returned to WWE, Shane McMahon. Shane, who was once looked at as the heir apparent to the WWE Throne returned to the company a couple of weeks ago and was slotted into a Hell in a Cell Match vs. The Undertaker at WrestleMania. While Shane is not a trained wrestler he has had more than his share of memorable performances in the ring. Shane McMahon was known for being an insane daredevil inside the ring to give the fans their money’s worth. Now, a father of three and 46 years old it’s hard to imagine Shane doing something balls out insane at WrestleMania but I’m sure he has something up his sleeve.

Shane is due back on RAW tonight so let’s take a look at my four favorite Shane O’Mac matches. Continue reading

From the Vault: WWE Elimination Chamber 2011 Review

After out opening video package, my favorite announcer in WWE Ricardo Rodriguez introduces Alberto Del Rio. I laughed at the only English words he said “loser Oakland Raiders” taking a jab at the team since they are in Oakland tonight. Del Rio gets in the rings and takes a mic and says he is committed to excellence and later tonight six men will put their careers on the line just for the right to lose to him at WrestleMania. He then moves onto his opponent tonight, Kofi Kingston and calls him trash and begins to run him down further as Kofi’s music hits and we are ready for action. Continue reading
