I am looking forward to spending a majority of my upcoming evening watching the Undertaker v. Mankind Hell In A Cell Match. undoubtedly the greatest match ever, on something better than YouTube for the first time since it aired.

Here’s to hoping a majority of the Attitude Era is available for streaming. And respect to the crew at MLB Advanced Media for the technology and infrastructure to bring this to fruition

Cena’s well-anticipated victory was one of the most anti-climactic passing of the torches I’ve ever witnessed, I had a difficult time figuring out why, perhaps from lack of paying attention to wrestling for the past decade, but the crew over at Grantland presents this article outlining the challenges the WWE faces with Cena quite eloquently.
