Happy Saturday Novas! Today’s blog post will be the missed days of the 30 day blogging challenge. This installment focuses exclusively on WWE! I apologize for not posting these everyday, but I figure I would post 5 at a time, since these are sorter blog posts. Let’s get to the topics!
Favorite NXT Tag Team
The questions are a little hard to answer when you try to gauge if the question refers to “of all time” or just the current rosters. I will just answer the questions based on the current rosters unless the question specifically says “Of All Time.” With that said, Currently I do not have a favorite tag team in NXT. I loved DIY but…. yea that happened. To be honest, I haven’t watched NXT in a few weeks so I’m not even sure which tag teams are even a thing other than Authors of Pain.
Favorite Title Belt
My favorite title belt by far is the Intercontinental Championship Belt. The IC Belt has always been my favorite because it looks so sleek and pretty.
Favorite NXT Match of All Time
There have been a few really good NXT matches. The Triple Threat between Asuka, Nikki Cross and Ruby Riot was pretty good, NXT Takeover London when Finn Balor came out dressed like Jack the Ripper and the Triple Threat between DIY, AOP and The Revival at NXT Takeover Orlando during Wrestlemania weekend! I can’t decide but NXT has had some amazing matches!
Favorite Main Roster Champion
I will mention my favorite main roster current champion. This is probably going to surprise people but I love Alexa Bliss as champion along with Jinder Mahal. Both are heel characters and in my opinion they play their roles really well. I love really good heels as much if not better than a face character.
Favorite NXT Champion
My current NXT Champion has to be Asuka, even though her character is starting to rub me the wrong way. Asuka is a really great Superstar and I like her… when she’s not being too arrogant on the show.
Those are my picks for this week’s 5 questions! What are your favorites? Let’s Talk WWE!
Greetings and hello my fascinating Novas! I was getting ready to write up a blog post when the best idea popped into my head out of nowhere! I was thinking about some of the lore and plots that we have grown up with in video games. Then my mind decided to go all Scooby Doo and propose the question: Wouldn’t it be crazy if… we didn’t know the whole story? So now I’m severely interested and talking things over with my friends Erick & Emily about presenting a version of the story that’s likely to have been the case. If you’re not following me yet, don’t worry when I explain the first story you will tie all of the pieces together. So let’s get investigating gang!
Lore: Bowser is an evil dinosaur that hates Mario and always tries to abduct Princess Peach.
Question: Wouldn’t it be crazy if Bowser only hates Mario because he is MARRIED TO PEACH??????
Investigation: What’s the probability of Peach being married to Bowser.
Exhibit A: Bowser has kids…. The Koopa Kids but I do not recall them having a mother. He also has Bowser Jr.
Through the initial investigating phases, I have found a few suspect pictures that I would like to present. I sat down to a very intense interview with our Princess and here’s what she had to say.
Me:Good evening Peach! I’m just following up on a few leads and I would love to ask you some questions if you don’t mind.
Peach:No problem Luna! I’m happy to help anyone who is a friend of the Mushroom Kingdom!
Me: Ok great! Just a few quick questions here. First, how are things going with Mario?
Peach:Everything’s fantastic! Mario is very sweet and helpful and I don’t nkow what I would do without him.
Me: Oh That’s sweet! So, are you guys planning on getting married?
Peach:No, we haven’t talked about it. We’re both pretty busy at the moment.
Me: Oh… I was under the impression that you were engaged?
Peach:No I can’t be…. I mean of course not. What would make you think such a thing?
Me: Engagement ring? Also, why did you stop going by your maiden name, Princess Toadstool? For that matter, why have you changed your appearance and dyed your hair Princess?
Peach:This isn’t an engagement ring and I don’t like you prying into my personal life. This interview is OVER!
Exhibit B: Bowser has maddddd money to build contraptions and go after Mario
We know that I loveeee reading and watching pieces about royals and nobles. From this study of history I know that often times 2 kingdoms are united by marriage. Bowser is King of the Koopas and Peach is Princess of Mushroom Kingdom what if she was married off to Bowser to unite the Kingdoms?
Exhibit C:The guy flying in the clouds recording everything has a 6 hour gap in his tapes!!!
I’ve interviewed a few citizens of the Mushroom Kingdom who prefer to keep their identity secret. Let’s hear what they have to say.
Me: Hey Kim, thank you for sitting down with me. As discussed, I wanted to get your insight on an investigation that I am heading up. Since you are a guru in the video game realm, I thought you’d be the perfect person to help out!
Me :Have you seen any suspicious encounters between Bowser and Princess Peach?
Kim:It’s not the encounters we see that are suspicious – it’s the ones we don’t which are downright dodgy! Think about it: what does poor Mario find every time he goes off to save Peach from one of these so-called ‘kidnappings’? It’s Toad, telling him yet again that the princess is in another castle. If Peach had really been taken by Bowser – who’s meant to be this fierce, fire-breathing beast – why would he keep leaving behind a servant who gives the would-be rescuers clues as to the Peach’s location? Toad should be fried mushroom by now.
So maybe they aren’t real kidnappings after all. Maybe it’s just a cover-up for two star-crossed lovers who don’t want to ruin their reputations. Why on earth would you continue to play tennis and go go-karting with someone who keeps trying to abduct you, huh?
Me: Who do you think is the real mother of Bowser Jr?
Kim:The word on the Toad Town street is that Bowser revealed to Bowser Jr that Peach was his mum. Some are saying that this was a lie and just a way for the Koopa King to persuade his son to ‘rescue’ his mother from that ‘evil Mario’; but when you consider what I’ve already told told you about these ‘kidnappings’, who knows how many untruths we’re being fed?
Consider also that Bowser Jr looks particularly fetching when wearing pink. I wonder whether he got that trait from his mother’s side of the family…
Me: If Bowser and Peach were married, what would it mean for the Mushroom Kingdom?
Kim:I don’t know why the pair of them continue to try and hide their marriage. Sure, their reputations might take a bit of a knock to begin with – the royal princess falling for a bit-of-rough from the wrong side of the tracks, the power-hungry villain giving up evil in the name of love – but it could be a good thing. It could bring about peace for all mushrooms, you know?
No more warring factions fighting over the realm; divided Toads and Koopas brought together in harmony; an end to ferocious man-eating plants jumping out at you when you want to use the bathroom. And no more wasting tax-payers’ money on these stupid kidnappings!
Me: Lakitu is missing 6 hours of footage from June 18th between 4pm to 10pm. Also, the goombas and Koopas whereabouts are unknown from that block of time. Do you know where they were and why there is 6 hours of footage missing?
Kim:Let me guess: Princess Peach told you that this footage occurred during the time of her last kidnap and that the cameras were damaged during the scuffle when she was taken. How very convenient! Two words for you: date night.
Thank you for your time Kim!
I have a lot of evidence and more questions now. If only, I could find a …
ROYAL CORRESPONDENT TOAD REPORTS: If Bowser and Peach are actually married, there are some pretty far-reaching implications. Peach is the Princess of the Mushroom Kingdom, as we know, but there doesn’t seem to be a King or Queen and Peach seems to be de facto ruler of the Kingdom: she’s not just a member of its royal family, she would appear to be its head. If she’s actually married Bowser, this would make him a high-up member of the family too, and therefore potentially extremely powerful within the Kingdom’s government. We don’t know exactly what the lineage of the Mushroom Royal Family is, but Peach being the Princess and monarch apparent would make Bowser Prince Consort or something like that at the very least! Since we haven’t seen any evidence that there’s a president or prime minister, we can assume that the royal family does actually wield governing power, so Bowser probably has some say in what laws are made.
Mario might well bear the legal status of traitor and war criminal! All this is just assuming Bowser’s the one who married into the royal family, of course. But what if that’s not the case at all? What if Bowser was the actual hereditary member of the monarchy, and Peach is the one who gained her status and title by marrying? Imagine that! The Koopa line would be the true rightful rulers of the kingdom, with Mario little more than a blue-collar everyman mounting a one-man revolution.
Based on the evidence and witness statements, what do you think? Do you think there’s a possibility that Bowser and Peach are secretly married? Have you seen anything suspicious in the Mushroom Kingdom or Mario franchise that would validate our claims? Let’s talk gaming conspiracies!

This week’s word: Hidden
The highborn are all too much like glass, offering up their tributes for my father’s favor. They think this smile, my attention, flattery, maidenhood is for them; my life for sale at our Winter Festival. Must I partake in the praise and indulgences rippling through my father’s royal court? “My Lord,” I curtsey, submitting to my duty as Princess, the scent of my freedom no longer fills the air, for this burden I do bear. His feral scent and lips so dry cannot lower my smile, yet I shy away from his gaze; for in my eyes, my true feelings are revealed.
Thank you for reading this week’s prompt. What do you think of the story? Can you tell what I was going for and what was “Hidden?” Let’s talk creative writing!
Hiya Novas! It’s time for another book review and this time we are diving into a genre that I have become obsessed with.
Title: The Kingmaker’s Daughter
Author: Phillipa Gregory
Pages: 412 (actual story) 448 (Total Pages)
Series: Book# 4 out of 6 books published about The Cousins’ War
Release Date: August 16th, 2012
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Genre: Historical Fiction
The Kingmaker’s Daughter is the story of Anne Neville ,daughter of Richard Neville who was given the title of Kingmaker, and her life as it revolves around the dangerous game of running a kingdom. It’s a historical fiction account of the events leading up to and beyond the crowning of a new King of England, from the House of York. The story takes place during the Cousins’ War (commonly known as the War of the Roses) and is told exclusively through the eyes of Anne Neville.
The Kingmaker’s Daughter is the griping tale of the daughters of the man known as the Kingmaker, Richard Neville, Earl of Warwick: the most powerful magnate in 15th century England. Without a son and heir, he uses his daughters, Anne and Isabel, as pawns in his political games. When Anne is left widowed, her mother in sanctuary, and her sister married to the enemy, she manages her own escape and makes a choice that will set her on a collission course with the overwhelming power of the royal family.
The events in this book and the story in general, take place during the events of The White Queen (you can read that review here) and the reign of York King Edward IV. The book is written as a journal of Anne’s where you will read the events of her life as if told through her pen.
I feel like the book is a very quick and easy read. Since it takes on the tone of a journal, you’re not reading a full page looking for transitions to the next topic or battle. It is very balanced due to the journal style of writing)so there is immediate conflict and questions presented. As you continue reading, the answers to the questions posed earlier on, start to reveal themselves and you crave to learn more about the events unfolding. I love that there’s action and I felt as though I were reliving the life through Anne’s eyes. There’s plenty of suspense and moment where you are left with a sense of loss.
Quotes From The Book:
“Do you eat the food?” he asks quietly. I shake my head. “I never eat the food from…” I tell him in a whisper. “Not since George warned me.” “Neither do I,” he says with a sigh. “Not anymore.”
They are a terribly handsome family. Nobody can deny that they are as beautiful as if they had the bluest blood in their veins… And they are seated at our table as if they were young people of royal blood and had a right to be with us, the daughters of a countess.
When I write Video game or Netflix Reviews, I include an area at the end of the review for my top reasons to “Play” or try the series and “Skip” for reasons you may not like it. I will use that method with the book reviews as well.
A different point of view on the story of Edward IV
A quick and exciting paced read
Not a fan of historical drama
Goodreads – 3.9 out of 5
Barnes & Noble 4.1 out of 5
Personal Review 4 out of 5
I know there’s not many negatives in this review, but my bias is taking over. I think it’s a great read and I found that I was questioning the “Accepted” versions of history. When I watched The White Queen, I had 1 picture of Anne in my head, but reading this book presents another (I still don’t like her, but I was able to find understanding in her actions). The book makes you think about the actions in regards to each person’s individual scenario.
Thank you for reading the book review of The KingMaker’s Daughter! Have you read any of Phillipa Gregory’s books or any historical fictions novels? What’s your favorite time period to read/wrte about? Let’s talk!
Happy Monday Novas! Today is my “Friday” at work as I am off Tuesdays and Wednesdays ( yup these days off suck lol). I’m at work stalking the clock so that I can go home, but at least I was able to finish The Kingmaker’s Daughter book today! It was amazing and I can’t wait to start reading the comic Snot Girl (gross I know) when I get it our o my car later lol. Anyways, today’s post will be short!
Favorite Main Roster Tag Team
So here’s the thing. Enzo and Cass are no more and they were pretty entertaining. I’m not a fan of New Day never really was). I could go with the Hardy Boyz but I wouldn’ say they are my favorite. I guess I will have to go with The Usos or Sheamus and Cesaro!
The Usos have been favorites of mine for a few years now. I liked them better before the heel turn but they’re still entertaining to watch.
Sheamus and Cesaro are amazing as tag partners. They grew from hating each other to being a truly dominant force in the tag team division. And they managed to make Sheamus likeable lol. Didn’t see that coming!
What are your favorite main roster tag teams? Are there any tag teams that you would like to see form? Let’s talk WWE!
Happy Monday Novas! Last night was the Great Balls of Fire ppv for the Raw brand. Let’s jump into the results of the night!
Bray Wyatt vs Seth Rollins– The opening match was Seth Rollins taking on Bray Wyatt. Bray and Seth had a pretty good battle up until the end where the ref was pulling Rollins off of Wyatt and Bray poked Seth in the eyes. Yup that was the ending and my husband lost to a ref on payroll and an eater of worlds who pulls a 3 Stooges lol. Results: Bray Wyatt Wins.
Big Cass vs Enzo Amore– The feud between former tag team partners Big Cass and Enzo went to the ring. It was not a good match as all that happened was that Cass showed his dominance. It did, however, solidify Cass as a Heel and I think he will make a great opponent for monster amoung men Bruan Strowman. Results: Cass won of course.
Tag Team Ironman Match– The 1st tag team ironman match was good. It was 30 minutes of fighting to see who could win the mosts points by pinfall, submission or count out. The 1st pinfall came 16 seconds in when Sheamus and Cesaro tricked the Matt Hardy into thinking Cesaro was the legal man. That landed him a Brogue Kick straight to the face. It looked grim for the Hardyz as they were down 3-1 with about 10 minutes to go. Results: Sheamus and Cesaro retain with a count of 4-3 (they ran for the last 13 seconds lol).
Womens Championship– Alexa Bliss took on the Boss Sasha Banks. This was the best match to me so far in the event as the women weren’t holding any punches. Can I take a moment to say that Alexa Bliss is a great heel. She is one of the best heels in the WWE at the moment, just by the way she taunts people and the way she wrestles. Anyway on to the results. Results: Alexa Bliss retains by getting herself counted out (she didn’t want to get back in the ring with the Boos)… But wait… There’s More! Sasha didn’t let Alexa walk out scotch free with her title. The Boss chased her down and the end result was Alexa getting the Double knees from the announcers desk at the top of the ramp.
Intercontinental Championship Match – The Miz took on Dean Ambrose fr the gazillionth time. I’m not faking as if I really paid attention to this match becuase I didn’t. It’s played out. Results: The Miz won which is what I wanted so that someone else can have a shot at the IC belt now maybe Finn Balor!).
Ambulance Match– Probably my favorite match of the night. Braun Strowman took on Roman Reigns and they were not holding anything back. After destroying each other Braun won the match by moving out the way when reigns tried to Spear him into the ambulance. This is where it gets good. Reigns breaks out of the ambulance, beats up Strowman and drives away. Then the best thing happened, Roman looked like he started a Heel turn… Roman backed the ambulance into a trailer and left Braun in the crushed ambulance. Is this the heel turn that everyone wants? We shall see. Results: Technically Braun won.
Universal Championship Match- The main event was between Brock and Samoa Joe. I was upset at the outcome because now the Universal Title is going back in retirement. Results: Brock won. Sheesh I don’t like Joe but at least we would have seen the title more. This is the FIRST defense since Wrestlemania in April! Are you kidding me????
That was the PPV event. I’m not going to lie, it was a little lackluster to me. Hopefully Raw will be better tonight. Did you watch the event? What were your favorite matches? Let’s talk WWE!
Happy Sunday Novas! Today is the Great Balls of Fire Pay Per View event for WWE! I can’t wait to watch the action unfold. We are marching on to day #9 of the 30 Day WWE Blogging Challenge. Today’s topic is a “No Brainer” for me so let’s get to it!
Fav WWE Faction of All Time.
Ummm…. THE SHIELD!!!!! The Shield was a WWE faction that consisted of my husband Seth Rolllins, Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns. The Shield took the WWE Universe by storm when they showed up out of nowhere (from NXT) and started attacking Superstars. Many thought they were hired guns by CM Punk who was champion at the time. The Shield was different, they entered the ring from the crowds, dressed in all black and called themselves the Hounds of Justice.
Side Note: I wasn’t watching during the time that The Shield was introduced and competing as a faction, but I do remember my brother nad his friends wearing black going to Wing House to watch the events lol.
The Shield dominated the scene for about 2 years and they held the Tag Team titles, battled the Wyatt Family, took on Evolution, held the United States title and shortly after their unfortunate end, all become World Champion (in the same night at one point lol). These 3 Superstars are sitting at the top of the pack and their reign as a dominant group is thanks to their individual talents!
What is your favorite faction or group? Let’s talk WWE!

Happy Saturday Novas! Tomorrow will be the Great Balls of Fire (I will never lke the name of this event lol) PPV event exclusive for RAW! Every Saturday before the WWE events, I will post a previews and predictions post detailing who I think will be victorious during the event. On the last predictions post, I believe I predicted all of the matches correctly, so I’m looking to sweep again this time around! Let’s get into the event!
Enzo Versus Big Cass: Yup, you’re read that right! If you haven’t been watching the past 3 weeks of Monday Night Raw, you had no idea that the iconic and comical team of Enzo and Cass is NO MORE! The Duo was attacked one monday night and upon an investigation, we found out that Big Cass was not attacked! He faked it and attacked his former best friend and tag team partner; Enzo. I can’t say that I am surprised, if you remember back, the Club Gallows and Anderson were constantly telling Cass that Enzo was bringing him down. There was even one time where Cass had a slight glance at Enzo, plus I feel as if this falls in line with my theory that The Club, The Shield and The Wyatt Family will eventually become the 3 major factions (it’s a long shot but hey). Prediction: I love Enzo and you want for him to win, but I feel like Cass is going to dominate him and cement a heel turn.
Tag Team Championship Match: The tag team championship match will be between the champions Sheamus and Cesaro versus the Hardy Boyz. This is the title re-match that the Hardyz are owed after their defeat in the Steel cage match. This match will be another specialty match as it will be an Ironman 30 minute match. This feud has been going on since Wrestlemania and it’s a little stale for me(although I don’t mind watching teh Hardyz or Sheamus and Cesaro wrestle). Prediction: Sheamus and Cesaro have to retain, but I wonder if there will be some interference in the match…
Raw Women’s Championship Match: The Raw Women’s match will be between champion and “Goddess” Alexa Bliss versus the Boss Sasha Banks. After Alexa beat Bayley, it was Sasha’s turn to try and take down the ever confident and ever manipulating champion in Alexa. Sasha has beaten Alexa Bliss in 1 on 1 and even 2 on 1 (the 2nd person being Nia Jax) competition so I wouldn’t be surprised if this match goes the Boss’ way. Prediction: Alexa Bliss retains. Somehow, she retains.
Bray Wyatt versus Seth Rollins: The feud between so called “god” Bray Wyatt and the Kingslayer Seth Rollins will collide with the 2 icons of the new era facing off. Bray Wyatt has been up to it again with his normal tricks and ambushes, however, the Architect has been dishing out some surprises of his own. No doubt this is going to be a great match and in my mind has the potential to be one of the best matches of the night. Predictions: I can’t bet against my husband Seth, Seth Rollins for the win!
Romans Reigns vs Braun Strowman Ambulance Match- so there’s going to be an ambulance match lol. Should be fun to watch. I love the feud between these 2 Superstars and I think this match has great potential. I will say that I think Braun’s character is a little cowardly versus Roman Reigns. He always attack from behind and he seems to step down from a fight some times (maybe it’s just me or my bias lol). Prediction: Roman Reigns, I love him and I want him to win.
Intercontinental Championship Match: The IC Title match will be between champion The Miz and Dean Ambrose… again. I’m a little tired of these 2 going at it as they were fighting over the IC title on Smackdown before the Superstart Shake-up. I honestly have no other opinions on this match as we know the hitory on it (since it has been massively played out). Predictions: The Miz retains I guess.
Crusierweight Championship Match:The King of teh Cruiserweights, Neville will take on Akira Tozawa for the championship. Tozawa, also being sponsored by Titus Brand Worldwide (rofl) has been a thorn in the champions side. Honestly, I’m ready for Neville to lose the championship and I hope Tozawa is the one to end his reign. I’m waiting for the WWE Universe to laugh at Neville (Ha, Ha Ha HAHAHAHAHHA lol). Prediction: Tozawa pleaseeeeeee winnnnnn.
Universal Championship Match: The main event will be the Beast Brock Lesner taking on the challenger and Destroyer Samoa Joe! Samoa (ughh) won the fatal 5-way at the last Raw PPV event and becase the number 1 contender for the Universal Championship. Remember when the Undertaker and Lesner went at it? How it was muy dramatica? Same thing this time around. Superstars were pulling them off of each other and holding them back, ramping up to the event.
Predictions: I hate Samoa Joe but I want him to win. Brock having the title is stupid, he doesn’t even wrestle consistently. Plus I have this scheme and dream that my husband will beat Samoa and take the championnship lol.
These are some of my predictions for the Great Balls of Fire PayPerView. What are yours? Which macthes are you loioking forward to? Let’s talk WWE!
Happy Saturday Novas! I hope that your weekend is starting off well! The 30 day challenge is a blogging exercise that allows you to write blog posts each day on a specified topic. You will answer the questions provided and post your thoughts! This will be a really short post, but we have
If you could make 1 Wrestler World Champion, who would it be?
Since the World Championship is on Smackdown, I will pick a Smackdown Superstar for this answer. I would say Nakamura, but let’s face it… he will most likely become champion. My answer will definitely be unpopular, but I would love to see the Lone Wolf Baron Corbin become World Champion!
Baron Corbin is mean, tough and one of my avorite Smackdown Live Superstars at the moment. I love his grittyness and I think he can contest any Superstar on both brands. Corbin has been building up momentum for a while now and since he is Mr. Money In The Bank, he will definitely get his shot at the title and I love it!
Who would you like to see win the title? Let’s talk WWE!
