My Top 5 matches in the Streak



21-1
My Top 5 matches in the Streak

   Earlier this month, Brock Lesnar shocked the world by becoming the only man to win a match against the Undertaker at Wrestlemania, ending his 21 year undefeated streak, putting an end to one of the greatest runs in wrestling history and more than likely signalling the end of the Undertaker’s career.

   The match received a lot of criticism, sparked a wave of rumours that Brock Lesnar changed the script for the match and raised questions about Undertaker’s condition going into the match. However, whether or not you think Wrestlemania XXX was the right time, or Brock Lesnar was the right man to end the streak, I’m sure we can all agree that the streak will stand the test of time as one of the most exciting and entertaining runs in the history of the WWE.
   So rather than mourn its end, let’s celebrate those matches in the streak that had us on the edge of our seats.
   These are my top 5 matches in the Undertaker’s run, it’s all personal opinion so don’t be too bummed if your personal favourite isn’t included and as ever, be sure to let me know your favourite matches in the comments.

100th Book Review Special: Who P-P-P-Plugged Roger Rabbit?

   Today’s a bit of a milestone, my 100th book review and I’d like to offer a quick thank you to everyone who’s checked out the site over the past year and a half. Without your visits it’s unlikely I’d have ever stuck this thing out for so long.
   So, what to review for my 100th book? I figured it should be something relevant to the site and one title springs to mind…
   …my first review all those many moons ago, was Gary K. Wolf’s Who Censored Roger Rabbit? So, 100 reviews later, it only makes sense to take a look at the sequel.

So here we go, the 100th tales from iDEATH review…Who P-P-P-Plugged Roger Rabbit?


Who P-P-P-Plugged Roger Rabbit?
Who P-P-P-Plugged Roger Rabbit? 
Gary K. Wolf
 "The whole Roger Rabbit cast is back: Roger Rabbit, Eddie Valiant, Baby Herman, and of course Jessica Rabbit, the sultriest woman ever “drawn that way.” They’re up to their old tricks in a whimsical new mystery by Toontown’s original creator, the man who first brought these delightful creatures to life.
Who P-p-p-plugged Roger Rabbit? opens with a call from Roger to hard-boiled private eye Eddie Valiant. Roger suspects that Jessica is baking carrot cakes for movie heartthrob Clark Gable. And the scandal threatens to rob Roger of the Rhett Butler role in the soon-to-be-filmed Toon musical comedy Gone With The Wind. Investigating Jessica’s alleged affair, valiant Eddie finds adultery turning to murder. In no time flat, he’s up to his fedora in a nasty web of deceit, intrigue, and Hollywood corruption including reports from all over of a swindling, cheating, blackmailing…..Roger!!?!?!"
