I’m not generally a fan of Scooby-Doo mysteries co-starring real people. Every so often, there’s a good attempt featuring Batman or the Globetrotters, but for the most part, the kind of story introduced by THE NEW SCOOBY-DOO MOVIES back in 1972 just doesn’t work for me. Being both a huge Scooby fan and wrestling fan, I was hopeful enough to be cautiously optimistic for SCOOBY-DOO WRESTLEMANIA MYSTERY! but wary enough to not get my hopes up too high.
I’m happy to say that WRESTLEMANIA MYSTERY! does not disappoint, and despite not reaching the heights of the outstanding MASK OF THE BLUE FALCON, the…

The finale was an amazing show. Monday Night Raw picked up where it left off. Hopefully it sest the tone for the upcoming year of the WWE.
I just finished binge watching 9 seasons of How I Met Your Mother. After 9 seasons, the show signed off the air with a finale that most of its viewers hated (more on this soon). In January, CM Punk left the WWE with no notice and again, most of the fans hated this. WWE lost one of it’s most popular wrestlers and had to rearrange storylines on the fly to make the Road to WrestleMania XXX work. Other than my appearance on The HBS, I’ve been silent publicly on this matter.
