Headlines: @WWE announces WM30 location, @IAmJericho of all people defends Triple H

New Orleans Mercedes-Benz Superdome

“Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to IWA-Mid South ‘Unwashed Massed 5’!”

According to PWTorch.com (Go VIP!), the rumors are true, and WWE WrestleMania 30 will be held in New Orleans, La., at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. You know, the same venue where Super Bowl XLVII was held this past Sunday? The same venue that suffered a power outage three-fourths of the way through the biggest game of America’s new pastime sport? Yeah, good to see WWE setting up its grandest stage in a third world country. WWE often reports that WrestleMania week infuses between $30 million and $50 million into its host city’s local economy. Expect to see that money spent wisely, on beads, tits and spray paint.

According to Prowrestling.net, Chris Jericho commented on Bret Hart’s recent quotes saying Triple H isn’t even in the “top 1,000” wrestlers and that his match against Undertaker at WrestleMania 28 was a “4 out of 10.” (By the way, I think it’s awesome that Arda Ocal is writing for the Layfield Report. Two smart cookies. Hopefully no cream in the middle.) Says Jericho:

I think that Triple H has had a lot of great matches, dozens of great matches. I could think of two or three that I was in with him myself, so, maybe, I don’t know why Bret would say that…

Maybe because Triple H is a dick?

“You might say ‘well this guy’s a jerk’ or ‘I don’t like him personally’ or ‘backstage I don’t like him’ or ‘politically I don’t like him'”

Yeah, you might! Remember, though, Bret looks at the world through pink-colored wrap-around sunglasses, shrouded by bitterness and inflated self-worth. Add old age to the equation, and that guy will say anything. Then again, Triple H looks at the world through McMahon-purchased Lasik-corrected vision, bathed in green lighting, territoriality and that same inflated self-worth. And the guy who is coming to Triple H’s defense looks at the world from underneath the bangs of an ever-present mullet, happy to forgive a boss-in-training who once said “he can’t work” as long as he brings in some sweet WWE cash in between stints with Fozzy. What a cluster… and it’s no surprise. -Eric
