Halloween 2008- Captain Hammer
Very fun Wrestlemania at jimbexleyspeed's place tonight. clearerblue, 433, shes_a_wee_lass, eriker, idundunitagain, sxoidmal and jodi all showed up.

There were quite a few good matches although it was a bit long at over four and a half hours. Lesnar/Goldberg was really terrible. The cruiserweight match was okay but too short (no one even tried to power bomb Kidman). The championship matches were good and jimbexleyspeed and eriker were overjoyed at the return of the Dead Man.

I don't really watch wrestling anymore on my own but it's fun to do it with a group of people. Plenty of junk food also helps. (I brought 2 dozen Krispy Kreme doughnuts and some chips made with Pepperoni that monstersocks pointed out to me at the store yesterday.

As someone who stopped watching wrestling years ago (more specifically: someone dating someone who stopped watching wrestling years ago), how the heck did Eddie Guerrero move from being a mid-carder to being a WWE Champion? Are there conspiracy theories about Mamacita holding him back?

I had to do a little research to figure out how to answer the question. I haven't actually watched any weekly wrestling in a long time now.

Eddie's popularity built for a while when he switched over to babyface somehow. He was part of a tag team with Tajiri for a while before Tajiri turned on him, then he wrestled with his nephew Chavo until Chavo turned on him (I don't know if the WCW Eddie/Chavo/Pepe story is part of continuity here or not).

Eddie won the title from Brock Lesnar at a recent PPV after some helpful interference from Goldberg (which was the reason for the dullest match of the night according to everyone including Wil Wheaton). He's been feuding with Angle lately (I think they were a tag team for a while too) building up to WrestleMania. I don't think Eddie's character has really changed much at all from the old days (he cheated to win the title and to retain the title) but the fans are really getting behind him these days.
