I think the week of April 6, 2014 may go down as one of the most historic in professional wrestling. Some of it good, some of it bad, but none the less, professional wrestling, specifically the WWE has been in the main stream media several times over the past seven days.
It all started Sunday at Wrestlemania. The Undertaker's wining streak at the yearly event came to an end. I'm still surprised by this, and posted a YouTube video earlier in the week.

Another significant moment out of Wrestlemania of course was Daniel Bryan finally getting his revenge on the Authority and Randy Orton and winning the WWE World Heavyweight title. His reign is now seven days old and is almost seven times longer than his first two reigns as WWE Champion.
While not as talked about as the events of Wrestlemania and other WWE happenings, I think the announcement of Jeff and Karen Jarrett's new Global Force Wrestling will have an impact (pardon the pun) on the business. Personally, I'm curious to see how things pan out. More announcements are planned in the coming weeks. So far all we really know is that the Jarretts are starting a wrestling company and they're on the hunt for talent. Follow @GFWWrestling on Twitter to stay in the loop.

Tragedy struck when the Ultimate Warrior collapsed and died at the age of 54. Days later, I am still in shock. I was fortunate enough to see him get inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame Saturday night and was in the crowd for his speech at Raw. Those words seem haunting now. Warrior, rest in peace and thanks for all the memories.

I don't really follow TNA like I should, but I do want to note that Eric Young has captured the TNA title. Many are criticizing the move, comparing the quest for gold to Daniel Bryan's. Since I haven't seen what they've done with Young, I don't think it's fair for me to comment. I do wish TNA the best of luck and hope that they can become a competitive force in the wrestling wars, as I think GFW is going to be gunning for them.

Maybe not major news, but congratulations to Daniel Bryan and Brie Bella on their marriage. It's been a great week for the WWE World Heavyweight champion.
