    In honour of Sheamus' Rumble win, me and my mates have now dubbed this as "FellaMania", and we've officially announced the start of the WrestleMania drinking game.

    For those of you not in the know, the full blown version is that you drink whenever anyone says "WrestleMania", or the complete duration of time someone spends pointing/looking at the ever present WrestleMania sign. (Undertaker is officially a right git for staring at the sign for so long you have to down your drink :lol:)

    Try playing the game on the go home shows the week before Mania, I guarantee you will not be able to make it to the end and be anywhere near sober. :lol:

    I've done it and let me say this: It is by far the most brutal drinking game I've ever played. It even tops the White/Rob Zombie game where you drink every time Rob Zombie says 'yeah!'

    Zombie averages 42 'yeahs' per one minute of song.

    The buffalo wildwings has been a staple in my life and pay per views for years now. Me and the same crew of guys catch every ppv there. Another fun drinking game back in the day was we would take guesses on how many "what" chants would b shouted and whoever guessed the closest got to choose 3 shots that had to be downed one after another by the losers.

    Shaquille O'Neal commented on celebrity news site, HollywoodLife.com, that he will be competing at WrestleMania, but WWE.com claims that Shaq will not be competing.

    I assume WWE is just trying to reverse Shaq spoiling a big celebrity appearance at 'Mania.

    Bryan Alverez has been saying for months that Shaq vs. Big Show is booked for Wrestlemania, looks like Shaq just blew the surprise before WWE told him to.

    Bet that means they won't do it now simply because "that's what they're expected to do" In the same way why Jericho came off like an idiot for not winning the Rumble.

    WWE nixed that then. Mind you, with mounting injuries, they might need Show in another match somewhere.

    You're totally right, that's the exact sort of nonsense modern WWE love to do. Randy Orton winning winning the Rumble to face Henry, Jericho winning to face Punk; makes sense, it's logical, it goes somewhere... wait... people on the internet who don't like the show anyway found out about it!? LOLSHEAMUS!!!

    Just thinking back to the Triple H/No confidence thing. Anyone think they'll bring the storyline back and low and behold Taker was pulling the strings backstage trying to sabotage his run?

    I dont think Taker pulling political strings behind someone's back really fits his character.

    I think the best use they could get from undertaker other than once a year is for him to form another stable, not necessarily the ministry again, but to group some of these young guys and give them some more character appeal. Undertaker spawned off a bunch of stars with the ministry, he could do it again.

    But Taker's character is a natural loner

    I think creativity wise, the Ministry of Darkness was the apex of Undertaker's career - some of the segments and promos were spine chilling. I remember him kidnapping guys and the inductions he would do on them. Not to mention the night where he and Paul tried to embalm (yes EMBALM) Stone Cold Steve Austin!!

    I have seen a lot of people mention that money in the bank will be at mania. I have seen nothing on t.v that would clarify this. MITB and a Hell in a Cell would be immense. Surely WWE think the buy rates will be through the roof because of Cena v Rock and it would be the best time for them to showcase matches like MITB and Hell in a Cell with new and old fans watching. I think the Punk storyline last year brought a lot of fans back and this wrestlemania has a certain buzz about it. I hope wrestling has another boom period for the sake of the business.

    On another note I was watching Sky Sports News yesterday and Mick Foley was in the studio promoting his comedy tour in britain. He basically said that he is going to play a part in the hhh taker cell match.
