  • 04/06/18--13:30: Wrestlemania
  • Overview

    Wrestlemania is an annual pay-per-view event held by the WWE. It is the largest annual event held by the promotion, featuring championship matches and matches which are the culminations of the biggest storylines the promotion has told over the previous year. It also regularly features celebrities and musical guests. As of April 8th, 2018, there have been 34 Wrestlemanias.

    Background

    The first Wrestlemania took place on March 31st, 1985. It was held in Madison Square Garden, New York, and was the first pay-per-view event in WWE (then WWF) history.[1] Its main event featured Hulk Hogan and Mr. T vs. Rowdy Roddy Piper and Paul Orndorff.



    Wrestlemania was conceptualized by Vince McMahon and the name was coined by Howard Finkel.[2]

    Developments

    Over the following decades, Wrestlemania grew into the most popular annual wrestling event in the United States. The most attended was Wrestlemania III, which had an audience of over 93,000 people. The event came to feature different events during the weekend of Wrestlemania, including the WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and a pay-per-view for WWE’s developmental brand, NXT.

    Notable Moments

    The Undertaker’s Streak

    Professional wrestler The Undertaker notably won his matches at 21 consecutive Wrestlemanias before losing at Wrestlemania XXX to Brock Lesnar. The Undertaker would win his following two matches at Wrestlemanias XXXI and XXXII before losing to Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania XXXIII, leading to speculation that he had retired.



    Wrestlemania 23: Battle of the Billionaires

    Wrestlemania 23: Battle of the Billionaires was the name of the main staged rivalry between Donald Trump and Vince McMahon at the 23rd annual Wrestlemania pay-per-view event that took place in April 2007. While the event drew large-scale interest in its own right at the time of the original airing, numerous GIFs and video clips from the staged altercation between the two has seen a notable resurgence since Donald Trump’s nomination, and subsequent victory, in the 2016 United States presidential election. The event was organized in collaboration among several federations in professional wrestling, featuring performers from Raw, SmackDown!, and ECW brands, as a joint pay-per-view (PPV) event, which took place on April 1st, 2007 at Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan. On July 19th, 2011, the highlights clip of the match between was uploaded by WWE to its YouTube channel.



    Roman Reigns Victories at Wrestlemanias XXXII and XXXIII

    At Wrestlemanias XXXII and XXXIII, Roman Reigns was heavily booed after winning the main events against Triple H and The Undertaker, respectively. Fans of the WWE have been divided on Reigns as many see him as having received an unfair push from Vince McMahon to be the company’s top star. At Wrestlemania XXXII, after a year that saw Reigns win and lose the World Heavyweight title on two separate occasions after brief runs, Reigns earned the right to face Triple H, the wrestler and Authority figure who ostensibly worked to give Roman adversity all year, at the main event. There, Reigns defeated Triple H, again to boos. At the following night’s Monday Night Raw, Roman opened the show to a chorus of boos. In an attempt to win the crowd over, Roman pleaded, “Aw, cmon. I’m not a bad guy! I’m not a good guy. I’m the guy.” This would become his catchphrase over the next few months.



    At Wrestlemania 33, Roman Reigns defeated and appeared to retire longtime fan-favorite wrestler The Undertaker in the main event. The following night on Monday Night Raw, the crowd chanted “Undertaker” for several minutes, until the crowd turned the chant into a “Roman Sucks!” chant. After Roman entered, the crowd erupted in several distinct chants, many including obscenities, as Roman stood in the ring (shown below).



    John Cena’s Wrestlemania Proposal

    At Wrestlemania 33, after John Cena and Nikki Bella defeated The Miz and Maryse in a mixed-tag match, Cena was handed a microphone and proceeded to propose to Bella in the ring. The moment was compiled in Twitter Moments that evening.



    Popular weatherman Al Roker was the guest announcer for the match. The following day, Cena and Bella appeared on The Today Show to talk about their engagement.

    Wrestlemania XXXIV

    In the build before Wrestlemania XXXIV, it seemed as though WWE was building to a match between him and John Cena, but Undertaker never appeared on WWE television to confirm the match, leading to mystery as to how that angle will pay off at the upcoming Pay-Per-View. Other notable matches include Reigns vs. Lesnar for the RAW Universal Championship, Shinsuke Nakamura vs. AJ Styles for the World Championship, and Ronda Rousey pairing with Kurt Angle to face Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.

  • James Cabrera (also known as his internet persona “JCYoutube”) is a meme within the YTPMV community. His rise to meme status began in late 2017 to early 2018 when he uploaded a preview in a server owned by Discord user “Isiah Folio” called BFDI Scan. The YTPMV itself was poorly constructed with tens of hundreds of issues but JC hit his first gold mine when in response to constructive criticism, raged and left the server after talking about fake arps and if he could get the YTPMVer role. Following this, JC has begged and pleaded to many members of the community about getting veg files, particularly the most known being Chadtronic Scan.








    On JC’s instagram page, there is an image of his face Photoshopped onto a child’s Superman costume floating around, which was brought to be known as SuperJC. A fake sample made for YTPMVing puposes was made from SuperJC.

    Other photoshopped images of him exist as well.

    Back then, JCYoutube’s profile picture was a custom avatar. On February 7th of 2018, the NotSoBot Deep-Fry command made the Loud House logo appear in the corner, giving proof that the avatar was a Loud House re skin.

    JCYoutube was also going to host a YTPMV collab with Koktakt Problem as the BGM, but the collab was cancelled because he didn’t know how to make a green screen transition.

    A YTPMV source exists known as HOOOOOOOLY, which was unlisted due to the jokes made of it.

    As of March 2018, JCYoutube has been acting nice to the people he viciously begged for vegs for and annoyed in many many other ways, mainly to try to clean up his act. It doesn’t seem to be working for most people, however.

Following the shooting, Hogg rose to promience as one of the most vocal proponents for new federal gun legislation in America, helping to found and organize the March for Our Lives and #NeverAgain campaign.

    Online History

    Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Shooting

    On February 14th, 2018, Hogg survived the Marjory Douglas High School mass shooting that left 17 people dead and 15 injured. During the shooting, Hogg recorded himself and various students hiding from the shooter.

    Hogg spoke at the March for Our Lives (shown below). During the speech, Hogg discussed the 2018 midterm elections and encouraging young people and first-time voters to participate in the election.



    Criticism

    Feud With Laura Ingraham

    On March 28th, 2018, Fox News host Laura Ingraham tweeted a link to a Daily Wire about David Hogg being rejected by four colleges.[9] She wrote, “David Hogg Rejected By Four Colleges To Which He Applied and whines about it. (Dinged by UCLA with a 4.1 GPA…totally predictable given acceptance rates.)” The post (shown below, left) received more than 7,600 retweets and 22,000 likes in 10 days.

    The following day, Ingraham apologized on Twitter.[11] She wrote, “Any student should be proud of a 4.2 GPA --incl. @DavidHogg111.

For the record, I believe my show was the first to feature David…” The post (shown below, right) received more than 2,400 retweets and 12,000 likes in one week.



    Several advertisers dropped Ingraham in response to the tweet, including TripAdvisor, Wayfair, Hulu, Nutrish, Johnson & Johnson, Nestle, Atlantis Paradise Island, Stitch Fix and Expedia.[12] Following the advertisers pulling their support from the show, Ingraham announced that she would be taking a week off as host. Many compared this tactic similar to that of Bill O’Reilly, who left his show for several weeks before being fired, following allegations of sexual harassment.[13]

    Several days later, Hogg responded to the apology on CNN by stating that he did not accept her apology (shown below) and that she was only apologizing because of the advertisers pulling their support.

    On February 19th, 2018, the Gateway Pundit YouTube channel uploaded footage of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student David Hogg stumbling over his words while being interviewed about the shooting, alleging that he couldn’t “remember his lines” (shown below). Shortly after, the video reached the frontpage of the /r/The_Donald[3] subreddit, where it gathered upwards of 5,900 points (84% upvoted) and 370 comments within 18 hours. Meanwhile, the alternative medicine and conspiracy theory site Natural News[4] published an article titled “It’s All Theater: Florida high school shooting survivor caught on video rehearsing scripted lines, coached by camera man.”

    On February 20th, The Disgruntled Millennial Facebook page posted an image featuring a screencapture of Hogg during an interview in California with CBS2 News in August 2017 above a screen-captured image of Hogg being interviewed by CNN in February 2018, with comments speculating that Hogg was a crisis actor. That day, Newsweek[5] published an article about the conspiracy theories titled “Right-wing Conspiracy Theorists Blame Anti-gun Rallies and Teen Activism on George Soros.” Also on February 20th, Donald Trump Jr. liked two conspiracy theory tweets about Hogg, which suggested he had been “coached” by his ex-FBI agent father. The tweets were subsequently removed from the site. That day, BuzzFeed[14] published an article titled “Donald Trump Jr. Liked Tweets Promoting A Conspiracy Theory About A Florida Shooting Survivor.”

    Trending YouTube Video

    On February 21st, 2018, the 2017 CBS2 News clip, in which Hogg is shown discussing a viral video showing an argument between a bodysurfer and a lifeguard, reached the #1 trending position on YouTube.



    That day, the tech news site Motherboard[6] published an article titled “The #1 Trending Video on YouTube Right Now Suggests That a Student From the Parkland Shooting Is a Crisis Actor.”
    Meanwhile, Casey Neistat tweeted a screenshot of the trending page to the @YouTube and @PhillyD Twitter feeds (shown below). That day, YouTube removed the video, leaving the notice “This video has been removed for violating YouTube’s policy on harassment and bullying.”



    Alex Jones Challenges David Hogg to Debate

    On February 21st, 2018, the Infowars YouTube channel had a video suggesting that David Hogg and other Parkland Shooting survivors were “crisis actors” removed from YouTube, constituting a strike against the InfoWars channel. YouTube’s policy is that if an account has three strikes in three months, it is terminated.[7] On February 27th, Hogg took to Twitter to attack Jones, calling him a “shit journalist” and brought up when Jones made similar “false-flag” claims about the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting.



    Hogg also implied Jones a “snake oil salesman” with a picture of Jones’ before/after pics selling his enhancement supplements, “Super Male Vitality,” saying it took 45 days to become Thicc (shown below).



    In response, Jones invited Hogg to come on his show in a series of tweets to “clear things up” and “defend the first amendment,” suggesting Hogg had CNN suspend the Infowars YouTube account in his name.[8]



    Jones also posted a video wherein he issued the challenge to Hogg (shown below).




    In response, Hogg stated he would not speak to anyone who had disparaging remarks for victims of mass shootings.



    Personal Life

    David Hogg was born in Los Angeles, California. He moved to Florida at the beginning of high school.
