All-Stars: Battle Royale

I think that taking PlayStation out of the title makes it seem better, but the PlayStation part is what draws in the money anyways.

Well you exceeded my expectations.

Why Once in a Lifetime Mattered

Wrestlemania 28, Once in a Lifetime.

Whether they do it again, which I hope not, the title stands still. That match, was not a match between the Rock and John Cena, it was a match between the Attitude Era and the PG Era and that match did happen Once in a Lifetime. What was Cena's point: the Rock leaves the WWE for the new generation and then just comes back after 8 years thinking he owns the place. What was the Rock's point: I did my job, I entertained. Whether it was football, wrestling or movies. So what if I left and came back, who are you to claim I don't love the WWE?

It was the WWF vs the WWE.

It mattered because the two did define their generations. It was Once in a Lifetime. On one hand we have all these children watching John Cena, a man they adore, a man that they look up to as their hero. A man they cry for! On the other hand we have these boys nearing twenty or thirty, crying out for what they USED to love, for what was taken from them.

When the PG Era started, we had people shouting out for the Attitude Era to come back. It's not coming back. I'm willing to accept that considering I'm from the Ruthless Aggression Era. But the Rock was still part of that era. He still defined my passion for the entertainment show. I knew that going into the match, it would not be the Rock vs John Cena, it would be 2008 vs 1998, 2012 vs 2001. The end of each generation, the start of the Reality Era.

Cena's point: other than Kane, Triple H and the Undertaker, where are the Attitude Era stars? They got what they wanted and left, meaning that they don't care about the WWE, they don't come every week to work their asses off. Hardy Boyz and the Dudly Boys, Kurt Angle and D-Lo Brown are all in TNA and it's lighter travel schedule and more lax rules. Jericho, comes for half a year and leaves for two. Mick Foley, comes every three years for four shows. Stone Cold, doesn't come on a single show but still gets promoted. And the Rock, comes back after eight years, says hes back for good and doesn't even come bi-weekly.

The Rock's point: The Attitude Era stars did wrestle every week and wrestled their hearts out for the fans. They did everything they could, and when time for change came, they adapted. You can't blame them for passing the torch on. You can't blame them for not liking what's happening now. You can't blame them for not showing up. You can't say you do it better.

This was all evident when Cena tried to do the People's Elbow. John Cena is the Champ, but he is not the People's Champ. But who are those people that the Rock represents, the people from the Attitude Era.

The match was Once in a Lifetime, and having had written this, I won't mind Rock vs Cena II, because McMahon had the Rock win: he himself admitted that the Attitude Era was better.

It wont matter if Cena wins Cena vs the Rock II, because that just means there'll be part three. And neither will be about the generations they come from.

End of discussion.

If Activision were to give All-Stars DLC...

I hope that it would not only be Crash Bandicoot...

but also Alex Mercer.

We can finally see the fight between Cole McGrath and the Prototype.

We can see Nathan Drake and Crash Bandicoot team up against Ratchet and Jak.

It would be a hell of a ride.

too bad Activision is a big piece of trash.

Revenge Brings Equality, Part Two

It took me a while to write this. I'm not going to lie.

I'm a Canadian and I am proud. When somebody calls me an Indian, I laugh. They ask me why? Am I not Indian? I answer: You Know It Bro. I hate Britain's Royal Family, because the truth is, they do nothing. If the time came, the British Royal Family would not be willing to make a sacrifice for the greater good. They never have. British people are not stupid, just prideful. Why does the Elizabeth's face get to be on the coins of Canada? She did nothing for us. But the truth is, England did many things for us and we did many things for them. When we were freed, we were freed on the basis as to help the British Empire, whether or not we would exceed England one day. That day was July 1st, 2012. Why did we go to war in World War One or in World War Two? We were our own people by then.

Imagine somebody kills your father. You would want revenge on that person. We went to war to wrong those who had made us the power that we are today! I'm not a British citizen. I am a Canadian. Revenge brings equality.

Not all the time.

But it does bring equality.

As a group you will be more unified taking off an equal force that has wronged you all than against a force who has only wronged a few of you or a majority of you. Upper and Lower Canada were unified against the United States in 1815 in the War of 1812 because it was they who went to war and we who wanted revenge. Sure America succeeded, Canadians are indistinguishable from Americans, they are our brothers in arms, not Englanders. But we won. We won because we were angry, they seceded and now they expect us to join because of where we were? That's not how things worked and it's never how things will work.

Tell  me. When America was bombed in 9/11, were the people more unified in bringing revenge against Al Qaeda than ever before? Sure they killed some innocent citizens, but what's to be expected. The people were unified, they signed up to go to war. Hell, it dates earlier than that in America. Pearl Harbour. This works for Canada too you know, the Battle of the St. Lawrence. 340 Canadians dead.

The point is, that when somebody wrongs you as a people, you wont care what gets in your way. You want to get even.

That's how many of us here feel in Canada. We don't want to go bombing people. We want to resolve things the Canadian way: diplomatically. We are not extremists, got it Johnny? Those letters against you were letters of equality, letters brought by a momentum wanted by revenge against your lies. We wanted a diplomatic end to the death sentence, yet we got people bitching about abortion overpowering our more meaningful shouts. We want justice. We want equality. Whether brought by revenge or tranquility.

That's all folks.

Revenge Brings Equality. Part 1

If the price of freedom is death, then the taste of revenge is none other than that of equality. When a person is broken, when people are shattered and split, reason does not bring them back together. Reason may get them to work with each other once more, it may get them to talk to each other and occasionally be nice to one another. But when two people of lets say the same citizenship are at odds with each other, they may be pulled to work with each other by some superior, but they will never like each other and would betray each other in the blink of an eye, given there would be no lasting repercussions. Sure revenge will not bring them to like each other, but it will unite them and they would, despite their differences, NEVER betray each other. Why? Because of their pride.

Pride brings the fall unless one is too vain to agree. Most of us are and if you don't agree, you do agree with me, if you do agree with me, your understanding. Lets say a militia of Fenians from Seattle besieged Prince George. The people would turn to a military general in the city, though he was retired, and would follow soldiers and strongmen in the city. Sure many of the people in the city would not like each other, let alone work with each other and follow the rule of a direct stranger. But many people would die for the freedom of their children if not themselves and so they would follow each other into death if it meant they could drive out these Fenians. The Fenians, say they still existed, would be united in attacking Canada, they failed before and they wanted revenge. The Princemen too would be united, given that once taken, they too would want revenge.

Revenge can bring terrible things. But it can also bring unity, even though it is through vanity.

More in part two.
