Fabulous Friday Five - Stephanie McMahon

On the heels of Wrestlemania 30, we give a handful of "Daddy's Little Princess," Stephanie McMahon!  Enjoy!






Should the NBA drop conferences for playoffs?

It's playoff time in the NBA!  So, here's a question - should the NBA drop conferences for the playoffs and just let the top 16 teams make it?  No more East, no more West, just one big NBA.  Take a look at how it would be (sorry Atlanta!), including a tasty LA Clippers vs. Brooklyn matchup in round one!  It could be the Doc Rivers Reunion Invitational against Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce!

If there was no East and West...

1. San Antonio
2. OKC
3. LA Clippers
4. Miami
5. Indiana
6. Houston
7. Portland
8. Golden State
9. Dallas
10. Phoenix
11. Memphis
12. Toronto
13. Chicago
14. Brooklyn
15. Charlotte
16. Washington

San Antonio vs. Washington
OKC vs. Charlotte
LA Clippers vs. Brooklyn
Miami vs. Chicago
Indiana vs. Toronto
Houston vs. Memphis
Portland vs. Phoenix
Golden State vs. Dallas

Here's how the current pairings would look like...

Indiana vs. Atlanta
Miami vs. Washington
Toronto vs. Charlotte
Chicago vs. Brooklyn

San Antonio vs. Phoenix
OKC vs. Dallas
LA Clippers vs. Golden State
Houston vs. Portland

Wrestlemania XXX Predictions




PreShow:
Fatal 4-Way Tag Team Championship
The Usos vs. The Real Americans vs. Rybaxel vs. Los Matodores

This one's really a battle between The Usos and The Real Americans.  Should get the 75,000+ riled up in the preshow.
I'd expect this one to cement the full face turn of Cesaro as the disfunction between him and Jack Swagger costs them the titles (again!)
Winner: The Usos

30-man Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royale

I'm begging they don't the way of putting Hulk Hogan as a suprise last entrant in this one.  Barring that, I'm looking for a full breakout
for Alexander Rusev! The Big Show is just way to obvious.
Winner: Alexander Rusev

The Shield vs. Kane & New Age Outlaws

The Other Streak continues as The Shield goes 2-0!
Winner: The Shield

The Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar

This one will be physical as hell.  But let's be honest, there's ZERO chance in hell that Brock Lesnar comes out on top.
Winner: The Undertaker 22-0

John Cena vs. Bray Wyatt

Match of the night candidate here! John Cena won over Wrestlemania last year over The Rock, this year, expect Wyatt to make Cena more of the monster he wants him to be.  This feud is far from over!
Winner: Bray Wyatt (with help)

Vickie Guerrero Diva Invitational

Really, there should be no way that AJ Lee defends the title with 13 other Divas in the ring at the same time and it being a one-fall match!  But, then again, that seems way too obvious. Otherwise, they'll just put it on one of the Bellas for the Total Divas show. Ugh!  So...
Winner: AJ Lee

Triple H vs. Daniel Bryan

This just screams of screwjob finish here sending both into the main event.  I see Triple H getting the "pinfall" only to have Hulk Hogan come down and say no way brotha!  Bryan gets his shot at the Title, but so does The Game.
Winner: Triple H yet both head to the main event

WWE World Heavyweight Championship Triple Threat
Randy Orton vs. Batista vs. Triple H vs. Daniel Bryan

Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! This will go down as an iconic moment as 75,000+ strong chant Yes! Yes! Yes! to end Wrestlemania 30! The only thing better would be if CM Punk came back and screwed Triple H in the main event, but then again we all know the chances of that happening!
Winner: New WWE World Champion Daniel Bryan
