THE BEEF: Perennial champion John Cena is the WWE’s resident superhero, a mix between Hulk Hogan and Marky Mark who’s hugely popular with children. Current champ Mike “the Miz” Mizanin is a former reality star whose arrogance and sense of entitlement annoys both the fans and his fellow wrestlers. Their long-simmering feud started with the Miz routinely needling Cena in interviews throughout 2009 and 2010. The match is complicated by the involvement of the Rock, who returns to the WWE as WrestleMania’s guest host. The Miz, feeling disrespected as Cena and the Rock engaged in an increasingly hostile verbal war over several episodes of “Monday Night Raw,” sneak attacked Cena repeatedly during the buildup to WrestleMania. All three brawled on Monday’s episode of “Raw,” which ended with Cena standing over a downed Miz and Rock.
WHO SHOULD WIN: The Miz. Mizanin earned his main event slot with excellent promos and dramatic in-ring improvement. A victory over Cena would cement him in WWE’s upper echelon.
WHO WILL WIN: John Cena. WrestleMania almost always sends the crowd home happy. Cena hears more than his fair share of boos from older fans, but kids worship him and he’s the company’s number one merchandise seller.
What? You missed the most recent World Wide Art Federation showdown, “The Art of War of Art” at Stuart McClean Gallery in the Old Fourth Ward? Here's some video play-by-play of all the golden babies, foxy ladies, paintbrush weaponry and vocal improvisation you wish you'd seen.
Fabian Williams revived his Saw-esque red-masked artist captor, Exacto, to offer opening remarks. This time, the bouts were trimmed to two rounds: live model figure drawing and the infamous “Face Off” where each competitor concocts wild caricatures of one another. During a brief intermission, the large screen above the floor played hilarious “commercial sponsors” from Williams’ Race Card collection and Evolution paints.
Hosts, rapper Sean Falyon returned with artist Dwayne “Dubelyoo” Wright alongside photographer Jasiatic Anderson as the foxy ‘froed Camera Lensey. Lionel Flax appeared as the event commissioner.
When Flax yelled “Fight” it was on.
