What really got me into wrestling again was the WWE Network and the announcement that Hulk Hogan would be hosting Wrestlemania! The WWE Network for only $9.99 including all PPV and an extensive video vault was a great bargain. Been watching so much wrestling. Even though my twitter account was primary for the rose garden, I have tweeted some wrestling stuff lately. The WWE constantly announces hash tags and trending world wide. Well, they have finally got to me, and I feel slightly brainwashed! My favorites are #YesMovement and #ThankYouTaker from the past week. Something happened this past weekend that had Roses and Wrestling twisting and turning in my head! The weather was great and Wrestlemania XXX was just around the corner. The following ere are my Roses and Wrestling Observation from Wrestlemania Weekend!
The Gazebo Cage Match Pruning
I had one of those cheap gazebos with the netting over top a metal frame. It was good enough. I got it at Ollie's Bargain Outlet. They do have good stuff cheap, but often with some minor flaws. This gazebo had poles that connect and clip to a small base part. The small base can be spiked to the ground. Unfortunately, the holes where the pole clips in were in the wrong place and made spiking to the ground useless. During the Preakness stakes in 2012 we had crabs and beer in the Gazebo. When the big race started we had many beers and were yelling and cheering. I had an old TV outside to watch. It was very exciting we were all cheering and yelling for our favorite horses.Well somehow I managed to stumble and start to fall over right at the end of the race! Tables, chair, and my girlfriend (of course I grabbed her!) were going down! I managed to grab onto the metal frame and save the fall, but the gazebo was bent pretty good. You know this reminds me of many wrestling moments! Stone Cold drinking beer and yelling "Give ma a Hell Yeah"! All of the brawls in Piper's Pit with furniture flying around! How about the shock master tripping and falling? Macho Man and Miss Elizabeth wedding when the snakes are in the wedding gifts and everything goes crazy! I have seen plenty of these on the WWE Network over the last few months! Anyway, I managed to bend the gazebo back and add some duck tape to make it as good as new for at least another month. The next month in 2012, I was out of town visiting my sister for my birthday and the rare derecho storm hit and pretty much demolished the gazebo. I managed to bend all back and duck tape again, but much of the net and roof were ripped. It sat there like as a bird perch and reminded me of some type of octagon steel cage until Wrestlemania XXX weekend. I had this great idea of placing the metal frame in the Rose Garden. The roses can be tied to it and it can provide support, and the roses can just grow all over it. Will also make a good place to hang bird feeders and a bird hangout. No this did not remind me of KoKo beware! What it had me thinking about is a Rose Garden Steel Caged match! Featuring the Cactus Jack and Terry Funk in a hardcore championship battle! They had many matches falling on thumb tacks and barbed wire, so why not rose thorns? This would also be a terrific way to get all of my pruning completed? There is one great match where Cactus Jack gets slammed of the top of the cage onto a table and through the cage and the mat! As long as they protect there eyes from thorns, this should be a great match!

What is the PPV of the Rose Garden?Currently, my annual pay-per-view would be Rose Garden Apocalypse, but one day I would hope to have Rosemania! How about Summer Bloom 2014!
How about some CatchphrasesYes! Yes Yes! Yes movement off my butt and into the garden!
Do you smell what the Rose is cooking?
You can't see me! There's too many roses!
Whatcha Gonna Do When Rosemania Runs Wild on You?
Some Rose WrestlersBuddy Rose - Gained way too much weight later in his career.
Adam Rose - Been around awhile and has a new name! I like his logo, but not his gimmick too much.

Growing up I liked the Ultimate Warrior but I never wanted him to beat Hulk Hogan! Later I got some revenge from Hollywood Hogan and the NWO!
It was awesome this past weekend to see the Warrior return to WWE. He was Inducted into the HOF and spoke on RAW to the fans. The Warrior appeared excited and happy to return. Constantly, he thanked the crowd and the unsung workers of wrestling. It was hard to hear the next day that the Warrior had collapsed and died . The feeling was unfair and unreal.. I'm happy that the Warrior was able to reconnect and reconcile with so many in WWE. I pray for the Warrior's wife and 2 young girls. It is good to hear that the WWE offering help to the family.
The Warrior died in the process of me writing this post. I have been trying to think of a way I can include the Warrior in my Rose garden and wrestling post. I remember the Warrior's awesome promos where you had trouble figuring out what he was talking about! Reminds me of the poem, Rose garden Apocalypse, I wrote a few years back.
The roses are very old.
How long will they Hold?
New zombie rose buds scattered red.
Why does the little Sparrow Lay dead?
Fresh dug holes are home to new pest.
Angels, Saints, Mary, and Jesus uncovered.
Why do so many insects hover?
Dead rose blooms wither.
Where do the snakes slither?
Disease hampers revitalization.
Will there be new fertilization?
Weeds grow like crazy.
How can the gardener be so Lazy!
Transit of Venus observed like an eclipse.
From the Warrior's last live address to the crowd:
Warrior said: "No WWE talent becomes a legend on their own. Every man's heart one day beats its final beat. His lungs breathe a final breath and if what that man did in his life makes the blood pulse through the body of others and makes them bleed deeper and something larger than life then his essence, his spirit, will be immortalized."
The Warrior was never afraid of anything and would always fight to make things right! This year I will be a Warrior in the Rose Garden!
