I will admit… I am NOT a Marvel comic fan, it’s just not really my cup of tea. Hubby loves the Marvel films, and I always have to grumble and sit through them, the only one I’ve ever enjoyed was probably Iron Man but this time, I’m actually excited to see a Marvel movie! Tough to believe, but it’s not!
The Guardians of the Galaxy not only looks like a good movie to me, but I do have to tell a secret, it’s also because you can find WWE’s very own Dave Batista starring in the movie as Drax. So yes, I do have alternate motives for wanting to see this movie, but I have seen the trailer and it actually looks like a good, fun movie to see.
From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team—the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits—Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand—with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.
Meet some of the Characters in The Guardians of the Galaxy…..
Drax (my favorite)

I was lucky enough last week to attend another LIVE WWE event, right here in Toledo Ohio!
January 29th, WWE brought Smackdown to The Huntington Center and we were on hand for all the fun! It used to be that it would just be myself and my husband attending events and getting a sitter for the girls, but that’s no longer the case. My oldest daughter loves wrestling, my youngest daughter not so much, but she love seeing the Diva’s matches so she tags along too. Going to WWE events has become a family affair. It’s great family entertainment and all ages get excited and involved when at a live show.
Smackdown is taped for Friday broadcast, WWE Main Event is also taped. The event started at 7:00pm and we started out with a dark match (a match not televised) and then onto the Main Event matches, and then onto the Smackdown taping.
What I love about WWE events is not only the amazing Superstars, but the crowd interaction and participation. Most fans bring signs, just like I did for my favorite WWE Superstar Xavier Woods!
While your at the event, you’ll see signs for just about every Superstar, you’ll her chants, and cat calls, screams and boos. If you’re going to a WWE event for the first time, be prepared, it’s loud! Between the pyro and the fans, sometimes you can’t even hear yourself think, but it’s a great time. Even those who aren’t wrestling fans enjoy themselves after a while, live shows and the energy from them are addictive, you find yourself joining in on the fun.
My excitement for the night was when Xavier Woods came out, and pointed directly to me and my lovely sign!! The only thing that would have been better would have been getting him to sign it!
For those who are wrestling fans, you know that the biggest pay per view of the year is coming up, soon! WRESTLEMANIA!! This year, as in others, the WWE is doing a few special things, not only will you have The Hall Of Fame, WWE AXXESS and Wrestlemania, but WWE has also put forth a reading challenge for the kids!
