Reaction: That match was great, a good way close out the show. Good to see the Rock wrestle one more time.

At the end of the day, Wrestlemania XXVII came in with a whimper and left with a mighty roar. There is no question, Taker and Triple H was match of the night. Seeing the WWE Hall of Fame inductees and Flo Rida confronting Heath Slater was also awesome. It wasn’t perfect, but it was money well spent. I hope you guys enjoyed the show, I know I did. Good night.

A momment of Gaming reflection – Do the mario

 

Ladies and gentlemen, we here at the armada are broskis (like bronies but for wrestling), as such we watch Z! True Long Island Story created by the Internet Champion Zack Ryder as well as CHI! True Long Island Story hosted by Michael Chiappetta (ZR best friend). While not as dynamic as Zack, Chi does his best to entertain the masses with odd ball antics and a cast of characters that could make of their own wrestling federation. Why do you care? I’m glad you asked.  One of Chi’s gimmicks is putting people who  dance better than him on his title intro; they’re usually very ‘unique’ but last week’s episode was downright inspired –we can now mark Chi as a video game fan, represent.

 

 

 

 

What Santa brought me (Product Placement) – Zack Ryder Baseball cap

 

 

Ok broskis the next Christmas gift we got is a bit more practical but still smacks of awesomeness – the Zack Ryder Baseball cap. Now a little backstory; Zack Ryder is a wrestler for World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) but he was under rated and destined for obscurity – that is until he used the power of the internet to change is fortunes. I’m serious, he’s been doing a once a week show on youtube that has gained a following so massive that it propelled him to stardom in the organization (and the show is not even a year old yet!). As such all sorts of new merch has been created and I have one of the newest ones; but is it worth the extra Christmas rush pricing?

 

 

The Look: The colors are black, orange, and purple – a scheme that usually reserved for Pimp M.O.D.O.K. For the hat however it works, on the front is a funky jagged Z with a jagged spike through the middle. On the back has one simple yet proud statement: Broski. The ‘O’ on the word is shaped like a diamond with the Z spike inside of it as well.

 

The Operation: You apply directly to the top part of head.

 

The Result: It protects your eyes from the sun, keeps your head moderately warm and as an added bonus – looks cool.

 

 

 

 

The Verdict

 

 

This hat makes proud to be a Broski! It’s unique but not the eye catcher you would expect. Comfortable and has a nice embedded rim all the way around, no need to play around with the size tabs on the back. Finally it’s just a good gift; I would have been satiated with an Antonio Spurs cap but this much better.
