How I Would Book It: The AJ and Daniel Bryan Wedding

Welcome to How I Would Book It. This is not a prediction column. I'm not trying to predict what will happen during "The Wedding of AJ & Daniel Bryan" on this Monday's 1,000th episode of RAW. I'm writing about what I would do if I was given the opportunity to run the segment. Every wedding in the WWE doesn't have a happy ending. How will this wedding ceremony end? This is how I would book the AJ and Daniel Bryan wedding.

My Favorite RAW Moments

This Monday is the 1,000th episode of WWE Monday Night RAW. To celebrate this amazing achievement, I decided to post my favorite RAW moments. I picked ten moments and they will appear in the order of when they happened. I picked moments that I remember happening when it happened and not moments that I discovered on YouTube many years later. I started watching RAW in 1999 so there won't be anything before 1999 and there won't be anything between 2002 and 2007 because I rarely watched RAW during that time period. These moments are not the best RAW moments. They are my favorite RAW moments. If you notice several important RAW moments missing from this article, it is because I didn't see it when it happened (Stone Cold giving McMahon the stunner for the first time) or because I appreciate it now more than I did when it happened (Chris Jericho's debut in 1999 and his heel turn in 2008) or because I didn't like it as much as everyone else did (Bret Hart's return to the WWE in 2010).

Ten Signs You Might Be a Wrestling Fan

The website 411mania posted a column last year called "Signs You Might Be a Wrestling Fan". Click HERE to read the column. I will post the ten signs from the column and then reveal which ones I am guilty of.

Video: Scotty 2 Hotty Returns to the WWE

Scotty 2 Hotty made an appearance at a WWE NXT taping on July 12. Will he be appearing at the 1,000th episode of RAW? For those who do not know who Scotty 2 Hotty is, he was a member of a tag team called Too Cool during WWE's Attitude Era. His tag team partner was Grandmaster Sexay who is the real life son of Jerry "The King" Lawler. Scotty 2 Hotty made his first WWE appearance in 1991, his main stint with the WWE started in 1998. He didn't leave the WWE until 2007, but Scotty 2 Hotty wasn't used much on RAW and Smackdown after 2004.

Undertaker Expected to Appear at the 1,000th Episode of RAW

According to the TV Guide listings page for July 23 in this week's issue,
"Raw's 1000th episode is celebrated. Triple H, Undertaker, Shawn Michaels are expected to appear, as well as Roddy Piper, Gene Okerlund and other legendary figures from the series."
Triple H was interviewed by TV Guide and talked about how WWE is able to continue to draw good ratings after 1,000 episodes of RAW. Triple H said,"Because we're live and in front of a crowd, we are able to keep our fingers on the pulse of what our audience wants to see. If you look at Raw from 1,000 episodes ago, it's a lot different than it is today. We're much more PG programming now."

WWE Superstars Predictions 2012 Part One

Last month, I posted an update on WWE predictions that I made in 2010. After revisiting those predictions, I decided that I have to do a new prediction column and include WWE Superstars that I didn't include in the 2010 predictions. I am going to do predictions on everyone in the WWE including superstars that don't wrestle very often.

There are a lot of people on the WWE roster so this is Part One of my predictions. I hope to have Part Two finished next week.

WWE Real Names

The current World Champions in the WWE are Phil Brooks and Steephen Farrelly. Oh sorry...I meant CM Punk and Sheamus. Believe it or not, most of the WWE roster use names that aren't their real name. Several of these names are well known. Many people know that Triple H is Paul Levesque, Undertaker is Mark Calaway, Chris Jericho is Chris Irvine, Kane is Glenn Jacobs, and Big Show is Paul Wight. Most of the wrestlers in the WWE don't use their real name. The few wrestlers that actually use their real name include John Cena, Randy Orton, Mark Henry, and David Otunga. There is a long list of wrestlers whose WWE name is different than their real name.

I have complied a list of the real names of current WWE Superstars and employees. The WWE name will appear in parenthesis after each real name.

My favorite WWE matches I have seen at WWE Live Events Part Two

[Editor's Note: This is an update of an article I posted in 2011. Click HERE to read part one. I have seen about a dozen more matches at WWE live events since I posted part one.]

For this list, I have included every WWE match I have ever seen except for dark matches and house show matches. Basically, any match that was not televised or shown on YouTube is not on my list.

Ranking these matches were difficult. I didn't rank them based on how good they were...I ranked them based on how much I enjoyed them. All of the WWE live events I have gone to were in Chicago, IL at the Allstate Arena.
