Busy evening, for yours truly... Not only here at, where I'm trying to provide enjoyable content in addition to your wonderful experience at But I'm dealing with a possible loss of a loved one soon as he's battling an illness that he may not overcome. I have a heavy heart this evening, so to speak.

One thing I cherish most about being Mr. Tito, aside from my wonderful readers, is the fact that being Tito gives me an outlet to vent. Thus, a bad day at work or just my general mood at the time I put on the Tito mask could reflect how I'm feeling at the moment. As I attempt to come up with a topic tonight to fulfill the Tito Daily entry for the day, a wonderful song by the hairband Cinderella keeps ringing in my head: Don't Know What You Got (Till It's Gone).

Yesterday, I argued heavily in favor of the Undertaker vs. Triple H rematch for Wrestlemania 28. Many of the younger fans or fans who don't like the WWE were ridiculing both for their age and why they were hogging a spot that should be reserved for a younger wrestler instead. That's despite the fact that Undertaker vs. Triple H from Wrestlemania 27 was an awesome match and could be argued that it helped boosted the Wrestlemania 27 buyrate. Argue that it's a good match or not, Triple H vs. Undertaker brought added buzz to Wrestlemania in addition to the Rock hosting the show.

For me, maybe I'm so defensive of guys like Triple H, Undertaker, Kane, and others is the fact that each are over the age of 40 and these guys dominated during the "Golden Era" of the WWF/WWE, the late 1990's and early 2000's. But, I appreciate both as wrestlers for all that they've done and recently delivered. Even at their old age, they can still "bring it" even if it's just once a year. If you don't think that Triple H vs. Undertaker III at Wrestlemania 28 won't help draw a strong Wrestlemania number, then you don't understand why Triple H and the Undertaker are wrestling treasures.

At the same time, I'd argue that I'm more appreciative of the younger stock of pro wrestlers who have replaced the exiting Rock, Brock Lesnar, and Steve Austin from 2004 with time. I've argued multiple times that the WWE talent pool is filled but that nobody is willing to use the pool properly. Miz, Dolph Ziggler, Alberto Del Rio, CM Punk, Randy Orton, John Cena, Cody Rhodes, Sheamus, Wade Barrett, and many more... Thick roster.

But Wrestlemania 28 is going to be a 4 hour show. Sure, the younger guys could deserve some time, but that's a 4 hour piece of pie to slice into. Let Triple H and Undertaker have their match... Both proved themselves last year and they deserve another shot to prove their critics wrong again. After all, it pleases the older wrestling fans who can't let go of Triple H (the wrestler) and the Undertaker.

I've also argued this about John Cena, too... For anyone who bashes Cena repeatedl, you're not understanding what's in front of you. John Cena has been a great babyface wrestler. His problem is that he's NEVER had a complementary heel to consistently compete with. Cena somewhat had that with CM Punk through Money in the Bank Pay Per View and that show drew money. But then, of course, CM Punk was turned face... Cena might be seeing some success now with Kane nipping at him as a legitimate heel.

I'm sorry, but I'm struggling to think of a world without its top babyface, John Cena, let alone the official retirements of Triple H/Undertaker. Don't know what you've got until it's gone...
