Marshawn Lynch heading to Raiders.

Rumors and reports have come out that retired NFL Running Back, Marshawn Lynch may come out of retirement and sign with the Oakland Raiders.

Lynch at the age of twenty eight  aided the Seattle Seahawks a Super Bowl win in 2014, until deciding to retire in early 2016.  it looked like the man nicknamed “Beast Mode” would ride off into the sunset,  that was until earlier this year, rumors speculating that Lynch and the Raiders were in talks for him to play with them in their 2017 season.

This is big news for both parties.
Raiders in their 2016 season were 13-3 and Lynch retired shortly into his 2016 season, but if he was to come out, from what everyone has seen him do for the Seattle Seahawks, he can be the best perk added to the Raiders.

Raiders had stars that broke out in 2016. Derek Carr, Ben Heeney, Seth Roberts,  Clive Walford and Mario Edwards Jr.

Lynch has already broken out, but he could aid these Breakout stars, with his undeniable speed and power that can gain touchdowns and wins, for the Raiders, which will result in making it to either a Wild Card or Playoff game, with the opportunity to finally make it to the Super Bowl and gain their first win since 1984 when John Madden was their head coach.

If Lynch does come out of retirement, plays for the Raiders and aids as far as to making it to the Super Bowl.  this would be huge for the Raiders and the greatest miracle they could receive and would be a sweet farewell when the Raiders leave Oakland to Las Vegas in the near future.

A move to Las Vegas will mark the team’s second departure from Oakland, following the Raiders’ move to Los Angeles 35 years ago.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodwell said about the move,

“We believe we, and the Raiders, have worked earnestly for over a decade to find a viable option in Oakland,We believe we went the extra mile to find that solution in Oakland. I wanted to thank Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf for her effort to find a viable solution. … we’re particularly disappointed for the fans. We worked as tirelessly and as hard as we could to try to find that solution. We just couldn’t get that done.”

With this being official,  the Raiders will be playing their 2017 season in Oakland, for the last time before the big move to Las Vegas.

Once they do move, it’s a rumor they’ll be playing in the Levi Stadium alongside the San Francisco 49ers. and if they get their own arena, all will still be good because Jack Del Rio and his Raiders main goal is to become greater and finally win themselves a Super Bowl ring,  something that hasn’t been dome since 1984 with head coach, John Madden. Only time will tell the Raiders thirty two year journey to win another Super Bowl ring.

Kenny Omega: From Nothing to Main Eventing the Tokyo Dome.

From anyone who has watched Kenny Omega and his matches,  promos and in general, his career. They have seen what he is actually capable of doing from making a match into a match to remember.

Starting off in independent companies such as PCW, PWS, ROH, DDT,  JAPW and PWG, Omega has practiced and perfected his craft and proven that even an Otaku gamer gimmick like his can be put into a great thing for a show.

After being released by the WWE in 2006, Omega would embark on a mission to prove all the naysayers wrong, by getting more noticed in the Indy scenes which he did to later on get an opportunity to wrestle for New Japan Pro Wrestling.

In his first match he teamed with long time friend,  Kota Ibushi.
They faced off against a legendary team known as No Respect which consisted of Gedo and Jedo.  Being victorious in the match,  they would later win the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Titles,  only to lose them a few months later and stop teaming afterwards due to Omega turning Heel and joining the gajiin stable,  Bullet Club.

In Omega’s first PPV singles match in NJPW at Wrestle Kingdom 9.
He defeated another legendary Japanese wrestler known as Rysuke Taguchi for the IWGP Jr, Heavyweight Championship. which he would hold for a few months before losing and regaining it from Kushida only to lose it a year after his huge singles win at Wrestle Kingdom 10.

The day after Omega’s loss,
He would attack and fire Bullet Club’s leader,  AJ Styles who was leaving NJPW to sign with the WWE. Omega would announce he was taking over as the new leader of Bullet Club,  and going from a Jr. Heavyweight to a Heavyweight wrestler to compete for many more championship titles and takeover NJPW.

In Omega’s first PPV now as a Heavyweight wrestler,  he defeated the “Ace” of NJPW,  Hiroshi Tanahashi for the vacant Intercontinental Championship in a huge main event that would be the start of Omega’s rise to the top. 

Months later,  Omega lost the Intercontinental Championship and decided to instead compete in the 26th annual G1 Climax tournament which is a 2 week event where the A block with the most wins faces the B block and the winner gets a IWGP Heavyweight or NEVER Openweight Championship match in the main event  at Wrestle Kingdom 11.

After a long and grueling 2 weeks, Omega would make it to the finals facing off against Hirooki Goto and defeating him to not only win the G1 but to be the first gajiin to do so.

After 5 months,  Omega had already set the challenge to face off against reigning and defending IWGP Heavyweight Champion,  Kazuchika Okada in what would be leader vs leader,
Bullet Club VS Chaos.

Throughout the whole match, 
You can tell that no matter what anyone has said bad about Omega,  they were all wrong,
because he proved that someone who people said would never make it, can make it and compete in the main event at Wrestle Kingdom 11, at the Tokyo Dome. and mark the first ever 6 star match in Pro Wrestling history.

Omega is still young,  he can still compete in more huge matches.
If he still stays with NJPW next year or if he decides to go to WWE,Everyone knows that he can and will prove the naysayers wrong all the time, with every match he’s in and that is an already proven promise.

Is Reigns Worthy Enough to Face the Undertaker at Wrestlemania 33?

After what transpired last week on Monday Night Raw, It has been confirmed that it’ll be the Undertaker facing off against Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania 33.

This is my opinion on if Reigns is or is not worthy of defeating the Undertaker at the event.

Since Roman Reigns stepped away from the Shield, he has tried his hardest to get the fans to on his side. The thing is, Reigns hasn’t found a way to get a whole lot of support from the crowd.

If you have watched Reigns through his career, you can see that he has been given everything. From NXT, he only wrestled a few matches before his call up, when he, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins formed the Shield.

If you look at what he has accomplished, it’s all been done due to wanting the WWE to build him up. They want the crowd behind him every night, but the more they force him onto everyone, the more he’ll be resented. It takes time for somebody to be liked, names like John Cena, Edge, Chris Jericho, Kevin Owens, Brock Lesnar and Rollins would all be examples of that.

The Undertaker has obviously had a monumental career, from his Wrestlemania streak, to going through over 25 years wrestling against the very best names. He has proven that even at an old age, he can still go toe to toe with anyone.

In my opinion, I don’t find Reigns to be worthy enough of defeating the Phenom, the Undertaker at Wrestlemamia 33. It’s just not his time yet.

Christopher Daniels Wins the ROH World Championship at 15th Anniversary Show.

Tonight at the 15th Anniversary show for Ring of Honor. 
The main event was held between ROH World Champion Adam Cole and Decade of Excellence tournament winner, Christopher Daniels.

This match was huge, On one side you had the leader of ROH’s Bullet Club, Cole. Who was taking on Daniels whose long time best friend/partner, Frankie Kazarian turned on to join the Bullet Club.

The hype was real, it was shown in a way that made anyone want or have to see it. Daniels has worked so hard to be able to be known as a main event player,  while on the other hand you have Cole who just defeated Kyle O’Reily at Wrestle Kingdom 11, to become a 3x ROH World Champion.

After a night of huge matches.
It was time for the main event.
From the sound of the bell,
both men went at it and this match had told a great story,
from Daniels getting superkicked into the ring post, to Cole not being able to put away Daniels at all.

In the end, Kazarian would make an appearance, from the looks of it,  it looked like he was just about ready to ruin his former best friends huge moment. that was until he shockingly attacked Cole, who was also taken out by Daniels with 3 back to back moonsaults, a Fallen Angel and the winning pin for Daniels to become the new ROH World Champion for the first time in his career.

Is Styles VS Shane Worth a Mania Match?

Since AJ Styles lost his WWE Championship belt to John Cena at the Royal Rumble back in January, it has been rumored that Styles may face off against Shane McMahon at Wrestlemania on April 3rd.

This is my opinion on why this match is not worth a Wrestlemania match:

Since the beginning of 2016, Styles has made wrestling headlines, from Japan to America. The day Styles debuted at the Royal Rumble, you could tell that his name was hyped for a reason.

Throughout all of 2016, Styles went against the very best in the business. These names included Chris Jericho, Kevin Owens, Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose, Dolph Ziggler and John Cena. Styles even won the WWE Championship from Ambrose, and held it for over four months, before losing it to Cena.

Now, what has Shane been doing this year? He returned at the beginning of 2016, and was put into a match at Wrestlemania 32 against the Undertaker, who defeated him in a Hell in a Cell match.

Afterwards, Shane was named general manager of Raw, until he was eventually put as the commissioner of Smackdown Live. So, if you see it in a perfect view, Shane has done nothing worthy to face Styles at Wrestlemania 33.

The WWE could make a huge match happen. Styles can face Ambrose for the Intercontinental Championship, or he can face Bray Wyatt and Randy Orton for the WWE Championship. Styles can even face someone from Raw, such as Samoa Joe, Seth Rollins or Kevin Owens. He can even face Chris Jericho in a Wrestlemania rematch from last year, this time for Jericho’s United States Championship title.

But, if you put someone like Styles, who has had one of the greatest years in WWE History, against someone with zero momentum and hype like McMahon, you have a match that is destined to not be a memorable match for Styles, or the WWE Universe.
