I just read that Bret Hart is holding out to induct Owen in to the Hall of Fame next year (which I have absolutely no issue with, that's over due) but he went on to say if they don't induct them he will stop going to the ceremonies.

Adding the only thing that will bring him back if they don't put Owen in is when they induct The Hart Foundation as the Tag Team of himself and The Anvil, and the full Hart Foundation Stable (Bret, Owen, Pillman, Bulldog, and Anvil)

I've heard it said a few time Bret Hart is a mark for himself but to publicly demand your two teams are added in, as well as your brother, and you want to induct him leaves me thinking he lacks decorum.

I'm surprised he isn't asking for his Owen tribute match with Beniot to be added in to the match section or to be given the Warrior award because he didn't sleep with Sunny.

{Ed007's Note - I've said for a while that I don't think Bret Hart is in the best of mental health. I feel that he's never fully recovered from his stroke in 2002 from which he still suffers from an emotional imbalance and other lasting effects common to stroke survivors, and because of all that I tend to cut him a bit of slack these days when he says controversial or inappropriate comments.
Maybe I'm making excuses for him because I loved him when I was a pup but I think you have to take his physical and mental health into account when judging him in modern times.}

To be fair he's basically just doing the same thing a lot of the biggest stars of his era have been doing for a long time. At least he's doing it for a cause.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Sep 2015 19:36:30
I tend to agree Ed. Bret was always one of my favourites, but he is just a shadow of his majestic best. His recent appearances have had me very concerned for his well being.
I am certain he has not forgiven Vince and any perceived snubbing of Owen, Bulldog or the Anvil will only add to the obvious bitterness that is eating away at him.

{Ed007's Note - Yeah it's sad to see.}

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Sep 2015 21:23:02
Don't WWE still regard the widow of Owen as having the final say? Last I heard she was refusing any attempt by WWE as she still blames them for his death. Bret has openly criticised her for not allowing Owen to be inducted.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Sep 2015 21:34:37
I agree with you Ed there is a definite and noticeable difference in Bret since the stroke. It has clearly affected his emotional and mental faculties which is a shame as he is my all time favourite. Yes he does say controversial things but so do a lot of the legends. I tend to give him the benefit if the doubt especially with regard to Owen as clearly he still feels some modicum of guilt over not being there to talk him out of the stunt

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Sep 2015 10:53:20
I suppose Bret isn't quite all there.

Didn't he say Triple H has never had a match better than 4/10 the other year, that suggests he is still angry.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Sep 2015 15:43:01
He also said WWE hadn't been the same since CM Punk left.

Also talking of Sunny anyone seen her new Skype venture?

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Sep 2015 17:41:27
I haven't, but I can guess what it is.

{Ed007's Note - I was hoping someone would give a general description, I've not got Skype but Ed001 is on my case about these podcasts he's got a hard-on for just now. I have a sneaky feeling that I would rather Skype with Sunny than with Ed001 or Ed008.}

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Sep 2015 21:18:21
Ed,if you have a look on youtube there is a promotion for the Skype with Sunny. Looks absolutely gross and once you have seen this, it might change your mind about the other Eds.

{Ed007's Note - This definitely warrants further investigation... probably after the Mrs goes to bed though :) If it was wee Mickie James she might have had a peek because..... Oh I've said too much here, she'll kill me if she sees this!}

The WWE has signed several wrestlers recently and several more could be signed very soon. They've also been talking with Rey Mysterio.

The officially signed wrestlers are Kanaka Urai(Kana), Sarah Stock(Sarita, Dark Angel), Richard Swann, and Christopher Girard(Biff Busick)

The wrestlers that are close to signing or have already signed but it hasn't been made official are, Adrienne Reese(Athena), Tommaso Whitney(Tommaso Ciampa), Drew Gulak, Dustin Howard(Chuck Taylor) Eddie Orengo (Bandido Jr.) and Johnny Gargano.

Sarah Stock is believed to eventually be taking over for Sara Amato(Sara Del Rey) as NXT assistant trainer/coach, with Amato expected to work with the women on the main roster full time. Eddie Orengo is already working down in NXT and will be a referee. Tommaso and Gargano are apart of the Dusty Rhodes NXT tag tournament.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Sep 2015 10:15:27
NXT is expanding as a brand, its important that they keep signing established indie names if they are going to keep promoting NXT's top stars.

They've lost Owens, Neville, Bray and his family, Bo, Sasha, Charolette, and have suffered injuries to Itami and Sami.

All the WWE have sent the other way is Zack Ryder.

They may have 50 or so on the bench in the performance centre, but they still need players for the team.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Sep 2015 15:14:42
Any good new blood is always open, though surely the only reason to re-sign Mysterio would be to sell merchandise to very young fans.
As Bessex says though, there is no point signing also-rans.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Sep 2015 15:58:58
Rey Mysterio is worth a legends contract if he isn't getting much work elsewhere.

Come in every now and then for a small run, or just to do some work for the Network.

I wouldn't see any point to him coming in as part of the full time roster.

It would be massive for some of the NXT guys to get a chance to wrestle him.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Sep 2015 21:20:20
I think Mysterio has a few bookings in november-december so, if he does come back, I could see him returning as a surprise entrant in the Rumble and then maybe working with the Lucha Dragons. I also wouldn't be surprised if he spent some time in NXT.

I'd love to see Kana start on the main roster and just run roughshod over the Bellas. Athena makes Naomi look like Cameron.

Swann, Busick, Gulak, Gargano, and Taylor not only have 0-1 degree of seperation from each other but also have it with most of the NXT generation. Ciampa and Gargano making it to the main roster would be cool just because they've spent time in WWE, in the past, as jobbers. Swann, Gulak, and Taylor should all make it to the main roster on some level or another. Busick in a classic 60s-70s style tag team with Bull Dempsey would be cool. I just want to see Swann team with Apollo Crews at least once, just for the combination finisher.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Sep 2015 10:56:27
I know all the names but don't really watch much indie stuff, I'm assuming all the guys are good, but Sami Callahan/Solomon Crowe is the first to make me question the idea that the ICW is always right.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Sep 2015 00:05:10
Crowe in NXT so far, has been kind of disappointing. He really hasn't had that much of a chance to shine though. Once Haitch and Krew start to focus on Crowe and his character, there should be a sizable improvement in and out of the ring. This time next year, he could very well be NXT champ or at least challenging for it.


Then again. Around this time next year, he could also end up teaming up with Hornswoggle and El Torito. Doing some crazy comedy gimmick.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Sep 2015 13:43:41
Was just wondering what people thought was the match of the year so far. I loved the 3 way at the royal rumble, and all the cena-owens matches, but no match had me as emotionally invested as Sasha and Bailey. I'd have to say its #1 so far.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Sep 2015 15:32:03
I don't think I've been more in to any match than when Cena put the US Open challenge to Cesaro the first time and it really looked like he was going to win until Owens ran in.

I was on the edge of my seat for that one.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Sep 2015 18:26:54
The standard of matches has been pretty high this year. I agree with the ones already mentioned: Triple Threat at the Rumble, Sasha v Bailey, Cena V Owens, Most of Cena's US Open challenge matches were good. I also enjoyed both Balor v Owens matches, Reigns v Bryan at Fastlane, Reigns v Lesnar WM, Rollins v Amvrose ladder match at MITB, Rollins v Cea Summerslam (great match with a dodgy ending)

For me MOTY so far has been the Triple Threat at the Royal Rumble, and I never thought I'd ever say this but the best 1v1 match this year has been a Diva's match - Sasha v Bailey.

{Ed008's Note - The triple threat at the Royal Rumble and Sasha vs Bayley at NXT Brooklyn. My third favourite match? Lesnar vs Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania after watching it a few times.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Sep 2015 21:27:18
Yeah for me it would be one of Owens vs balor, Rollins vs ambrose, sasha v bayley or sasha vs becky lynch - I think in all honesty the nxt woman's matches have bettered the wwe divas hands down all year long.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Sep 2015 10:17:53
Nobody has picked a stinker, there have been plenty more great matches.

Harper, Rusev, Zigler, and Cesaro have a great standard on almost every Raw and Smackdown.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Sep 2015 10:23:05
For me its Balor v Neville at NXT Rival for the #1 contendership, think that's gone on to be the most forgotten for some reason. If were just including main roster then the triple threat at the Rumble.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Sep 2015 15:30:41
OK, what about Worst Match of the Year? For me it would have to be the Royal Rumble match itself. That was probably the worst booking I've ever seen in a match, it was astoundingly bad. I'd also have to say any Ascension match would be high on my stinkers list.

{Ed008's Note - Royal Rumble and the IC Title match at the Elimination Chamber for me.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Sep 2015 17:34:08
Anything involving Mojo Rawley tends to suck pretty bad.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Sep 2015 19:21:37
Royal Rumble was awful, but I really hate the Ryback/Big Show matches.
I feel a bit sorry for The Ascension. They came from NXT and were portrayed as a new LOD and were obviously told to snarl at camera as much as possible. The tag team division was at an all time low and it looked as if the title was there for the taking.
Instead of a new Legion, we had a parody of what a tag team should be. If they ever wanted to have a wrestling version of Spinal Tap, you need look no further than The Ascension.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Sep 2015 21:36:44
The Rumble match will go down as one of the worst non crazy gimmick matches of all time. 58 year old DDP is the only one out of 30/31 wrestlers to leave the match, looking stronger than he did when he went in. The upper mid card got crapped on more than Tony Atlas. Even the guy that everything was set up for, to make look better, came off looking more "lucky" than strong.

Anything with Eva Marie is a dishonorable mention.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Sep 2015 14:05:45
We are only scoring top matches I take it, I'm sure the real stinkers were ones we are not paying attention to.

I'm sure Adam Rose vs Darren Young on Superstars isn't exactly an exhibition.

Agree0 Disagree0

 

 

02 Sep 2015 12:35:55
As most of us are football fans as well, let's see who you would have as your wrestler/football 11 - mine would be
Luke harper
Ziggler reigns cesaro rollins
Balor ambrose lesnar enzo
Zayn neville

Big agile guy in goal, pace on the wings and power through the middle

Special mention to cena who was tempting to put in - just to guarantee me a title every year ;)

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Sep 2015 15:34:24
I would definitely have Balor, Barrett, Sheamus, Neville, and any Mexican as they will have all played a bit growing up.

I bet Lesnar has never kicked a ball, and doesn't understand the concept of a fair barge.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Sep 2015 18:34:46
Harper
Reigns Rusev Strowman Balor
Cesaro Ambrose
Rollins Ziggler Neville
Lesnar

A classy 4231. Dominant at the back, Ambrose to destroy in front of the back four with Cesaro playing the Xabi Alonso role. Lots of pace and flair playing of Lesnar up top.

It was tempting to pick a South American X1 for flair! It was also tempting to put Ziggler up front, he's been scoring for fun recently! ;-)

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Sep 2015 10:26:09
As a Spurs fan i'd definitely have Kane up front.
Gotta have Cena for the shirt & merch sales & for the fact he won't put the opposition teams over so guarenteed the title.

Agree0 Disagree0

See Jimmy Snuka has been charged with 3rd degree murder and involuntary manslaughter of Nancy Argentino in 1983.
Why does wrestling always seem to have more than it's fair share of tragedies?

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Sep 2015 23:55:07
Mainly because a sizeable portion of 80's and 90's wrestlers tried to live the rock star life style as much as possible while also abusing steroids and extremely potent pain medication.

Thankfully most of the newer generation isn't like that. Even Randy Orton's rumored past deeds, are babytown frolics compared to a lot of stuff that was going on back then.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Sep 2015 10:08:19
If this is proved then surely Vince has to be charged with something seeing at was him who did the talking to the cops when the body was found

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Sep 2015 15:37:40
Its history really, I always think its harsh to charge someone for historical crimes if it was acceptable at the time.

I'm not saying giving your missus a backhand was acceptable, but domestic abuse was not viewed like it is now.

If he was slapping a women around and she died he should answer for it.

At a car boot sale on Saturday I scored myself some 25 year old WCW and WWE action figures for a pound.

Arn Anderson, Ron Simmonds, IRS. and Sgt Slaughter (wearing the gold eagle title belt)

I felt a bit awkward buying them from a 10 year old scout who obviously had no respect for history.

Looked on ebay, in packets (which these are not) they are going for £40.

These bad boys are heading to my loft with my Star Wars figures.

Any of the Wyatts could double as a Wookie, though with his black mask Braun Strowman could cover for Darth Vader (not the wrestling Vader). Big Show could be a droid as he is so robotic. And Flair could be Yoda as he now seems to have become this wise mentor character.

There was a shooting today at the WWE performance center. HHH recently tweeted about what happened.

-Unfortunately a deranged individual with no WWE affiliation, who had a court order prohibiting him from being on WWE property…(1/3)
was involved in an incident with an Orange County Sherriff’s deputy in the parking lot of the WWE Performance Center… (2/3)
We defer to the Orange County Sherriff’s department for further comment and information. (3/3)
— Triple H (@TripleH) August 31, 2015

The individual was the one that got shot and is in the hospital.

This comes a few days after a member of security tackled a fan, during an event, who jumped the barrier and ran at Dean Ambrose with an object in his hand.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Sep 2015 09:56:42
I had heard the guy in question has a restraining order against him because of stuff he's previously done at the performance centre.

Read at one point he'd been smearing his own crap on the windows.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Sep 2015 15:52:15
(1/2)
Armando Montalvo was wounded when a confrontation with police outside the Center turned violent as a result of his "charging" the officers who responded to WWE employees' call about a man trespassing on the premises.

It was the latest in what TMZ reports was a string of violent incidents involving the wrestling corporation and the 29 year old Montalvo. An Instagram post from five days ago shows him preparing to approach WWE's Stamford, Connecticut headquarters to inquire about a job, saying "what's the worst they can say?" He previously showed up at the Performance Center dressed in wrestling gear, banging on windows and threatening to "kick everyone's ass" because they wouldn't hire him.

Orlando's News13 spoke to a man who works nearby and said he witnessed one of those incidents two weeks ago. Juan Rodriguez told the station, "He was waving the chain, waving the chain telling the guy to 'come on, come on' and the cops came and took him down".

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Sep 2015 15:55:31
(2/2)
His most bizarre interaction occurred earlier this Summer, when he spread his own excrement around the building. A video Montalvo posted to YouTube showed him preparing a bucket with his own feces and reduced fat milk to take to the WWE facility.

It's in this clip (available in the TMZ report) where he wears merchandise with logos of the NWO and twice mentions AJ Lee, although it's unclear if he believes his actions to be in support of the long-time Divas champ or if he's upset with her.

More frightening is his seeming obsession with another woman wrestler, Hall of Famer and Tough Enough judge Lita. Montalvo's August 4 arrest at the Performance Center found him in a car with binoculars and a sign which read, "Lita I Love You". The deputy's report on that incident, per News 6, notes that he "kept asking if I saw Lita while I was inside the WWE building. Armando kept stating that he loves Lita and that she is attractive. Armando also kept laughing and stating that what was happening is 'awesome.'

Does anybody else think Cena will somehow get involved in the Rollins vs Sting title match? I don’t believe that he will just accept his screwy finish and not want any sort of rematch or do you think this will happen at Survivor Series?

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2015 16:17:37
I'm hearing Seth will be having 2 matches at NOC defending the US title against Cena & the WWE title against Sting. Only if Seth beats Cena in a screwjob will he probably get involved in the Sting match.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2015 16:38:07
The rumored plan is to have Rollins defend both titles at NoC, in separate matches. WWE title vs Sting and the US title vs Cena.

Sting will open RAW tonight, there will be a Divas beat the clock challenge to crown the #1 contender, and Ziggler vs Rusev has also been advertised. By the end of the night most of the card should be set for NoC.

{Ed008's Note - Night of Champions has to feature every WWE title. I don't want to see Ziggler vs Rusev again at that PPV. Give the Divas 20 minutes for a match like Takeover and other mid-card Titles aswell.

Agree1 Disagree0

31 Aug 2015 17:24:47
Ziggler vs Rusev at NoC, still looks to be a mixed tag match with Lana and Summer.

{Ed008's Note - If it's not for a Title it shouldn't be on the card IMO

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2015 18:53:32
I agree ed. Even with half as many titles in play as when they started doing NoC, stuff like mixed tag matches have no place on the card.

I think they should have the three NXT titles defended at NoC, or at least make any non-title match a #1 contender's match. If nothing else do a tournament with the final at NoC and the winner gets an arbitrary title of champion of the summer or 'The Summer of (insert name.)'

Agree1 Disagree0

31 Aug 2015 19:39:13
Is the NXT title being defended? It would be good if they just used all NXT titles also rather than putting on non title matches.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Sep 2015 00:36:03
The NXT title isn't being defended at NoC.(At least there is no rumored or expected plan to do so.) I was just using the NXT titles, and them being defended at NoC, as something they could/should do in place of pointless matches like the rumored Ziggler & Lana vs Rusev & Summer mixed tag match.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Sep 2015 09:59:27
Using the NXT 3 titles you have enough title matches to fill a card.

I say do it.


If Seth goes through a match with Cena and comes out with the belt, its much more likely Sting could actually win later in the night.

Sheamus cashing in on Sting seems much more realistic as well.

Agree1 Disagree0

01 Sep 2015 16:33:36
There seems to be a growing feeling that Sheamus won't cash in until around may of next year. Mostly because he's going to be in the next Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie that is scheduled to come out on june 3rd.

I'd still prefer that he was just put in, and lost, a match with the contract on the line.

Agree1 Disagree0

02 Sep 2015 15:43:23
I'd like to see Shemaus cash in for a match of his choosing at a PPV rather than the tired way of running in when the champ is laid out.

If they had a Raw from Dublin and he pre demanded his title shot in Dublin Pub Brawl or something it would make for a memorable episode, by comparison to running down pinning a guy after 10 seconds and losing the title a month later.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Aug 2015 17:47:33
I know we are a few months away yet but it's a quiet weekend. Anyway just thinking about the possible wrestlemania card, and was curious to see if we could get something going on with a kinda prediction competition. Whoever predicts the wm card gets an hour with popa taking a "we love cena" class ;)

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Aug 2015 18:26:37
Would need a lot longer than an hour lol. I'd most likely be ill on the day the course runs too

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Aug 2015 23:27:06
I'll make some varyingly vague predictions in lieu of ones for specific matches.

Kurt Angle will have a match.

There will be a match featuring all former ROH talent. At least one person that will be in the match isn't with WWE right now.

There will be at least two NJPW stars that will wrestle in matches, for WWE, Wrestlemania weekend.

The Andre the Giant Battle Royal will have a stipulation added to it, and/or a large number of entrants. The tradition will also continue of Cena coming out on RAW after the Royal Rumble and feigning a desire to be in the Battle Royal until his Mania opponent is officially revealed.

Orton will punt someone on the RAW after Mania and be "suspended" until sometime between Money in the Bank and Battleground.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Aug 2015 15:57:39
There will be a four way tag match involving the Dudleys, New Day, Prime Time Players and another team, if they are fit he USOs.
The diva division will still not make any sense and I will still not care.
Takers final match against, I have a sneaky suspicion about Kane.
Sting will feature somehow and so will Stone Cold.
I agree with Jables that the Battle Royal will have a shed load of entrants.
Wyatts ( I suspect 4 of them) will continue to feud with Reigns & Ambrose and at least one other (please not Sting), possibly a reunion with Rollins.
Lesnar will feature, but I suspect the main event will involve Cena somehow.
How many face/heel changes will Big Show have before then, and will anyone care?

{Ed007's Note - Has anyone else admitted to completely marking out when the Dudleys came back?}

Agree1 Disagree0

30 Aug 2015 20:55:42
Can't say I marked out, but I did have a big grin on my face.

{Ed007's Note - I must've woken the neighbours.}

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Aug 2015 21:08:22
I also marked out like crazy for the return of the Dudleyz. Even more so after it was reported that not only will they be wrestling full time but the contracts they signed are believed to be a multi year. In my opinion they are the greatest tag team of all time, and it will be nice to see them finish their careers with WWE and go into the hall of fame.

I kind of expect Stone Cold, HBK, and a maybe a celebrity will serve as hosts.
By the time WM roles around I think PTP will be jobbers on the main shows.
I figure Wyatt family vs AmbReigns will end at Survivor Series. Rowan being the Wyatt family's fourth and Kane & Daniel Bryan being with AmbReigns. Harper & Rowan and Kane & Daniel Bryan being tag teams again after SvS.
I'm half expecting Strowman to win the IC title while remaining unpinned going into WM. Cena will not only beat him and win the title but will also be the first to break out of what I call the Hugo Hug.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2015 10:05:12
Cena to break Flair's record at Mania? Seems the sort of thing Vince would want to close the show with

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2015 10:38:08
Yeah I was shouting at my telly when The Dudley's returned! 3D are back! As for WM32 I think it will be part timer heavy again. I think Brock, Rock, Taker, Sting and maybe Austin could all feature (I'm not sure if Rock or especially Austin will have a match but they will appear)

I think it'll have to be a packed 4 hours to get the right people some time, due to all the part timers taking up big matches, that's not me complaining either just stating a fact. My guesses are:

Taker v Sting
Rock v HHH or Rock and Rousey v HHH and Steph
Austin v Cena
Brock v? (Maybe Taker if no Taker v Sting, maybe Wyatt or Orton)
Reigns v Rollins v Ambrose
Tag 4 way Dudleys, New Day, Uso's, Wyatt Family
IC and US unification Ladder: Owens v Cesaro v Rusev v Ziggler v Ryback v Neville
Divas title match: Nikki v Charlotte v Sasha

I hope they scrap the Andre the giant battle Royal and put a couple of shorter matches in there, but I think the Battle Royal will be in there (Hopefully they keep it short and put some decent spots from the mid card and the NXT talent in there)
I'd love to see the Shield triple threat be for the Title, but it will probably be the Lesnar match or Taker v Sting (neither of which need the Title IMO)

If Angle does return I'd love to see Brock v Angle or Angle v Bryan.

I think the whole Taker, Brock, Sting, Rock, HHH situation makes it harder to call the WM card this time.

{Ed008's Note - Ticket was £57 including the extra fees they always charge. Tried to buy VIP not sure how they sold at 9am when I bought mine bang on 9am. I'm right near the entrance ramp.

So there's been rumours going around that The Wyatt Family are getting a female member to portray Sister Abigail, and also The Shield are also getting a new member, I'll take a guess and go for either Bull Dempsey or Mojo Rawley for the new Shield member, no idea for Sister Abigail but what are your guesses?

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Aug 2015 16:00:02
Could be aj Lee as she is abit twisted at times

{Ed008's Note - She's retired and based on Punk's comments couple of weeks back has no intention of returning for a while.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Aug 2015 16:40:09
I hope they don't bring in a 'Sister Abigail' character. It would only make sense if Sister Abigail is a creepy elderly lady (like an evil ex nun type of character) A young Diva playing Sister Abigail will be terrible. If they were going to do it they probably should have done it with Paige, as it stands I really hope they don't do this! As for The Shield Member, I really can't decide who would be a good fit, I don't think Bull or Mojo have the right look for a Shield member. If Corey Graves was still active then he would have been perfect. Baron Corbin has the right look and character, but I don't want him anywhere near 'The Shield', he'd get booed out of the building if he joined them IMO. Maybe they could recruit Finn Balor, use a demon to fight a demon type of thing?

Mojo Rawley would be my worst nightmare as a third shield member. There needs to be no sister abigail, it is a terrible idea.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Aug 2015 01:01:35
I'm sure in some of his early promo's she was dead. But i've heard rumours that his real life sister (forget her name) is training down at nxt potentially being groomed for the role.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Aug 2015 10:18:47
I've read that Bray Wyatt's real life sister has had a few workouts so maybe it will be her?

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Aug 2015 12:49:38
I don't want to see Sister Abigail, by all means if you want to add a female member make it Abigail's daughter or something, but any wrong move could bury his whole backstory if Alexa Bliss comes out in a black wig.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Aug 2015 16:51:53
Yeah I don't mind The Wyatt's having a female member, but not someone playing the character of Sister Abigail. It just wouldn't work (for reason's I've stated previously) I wonder if Rowan will rejoin the Wyatt's or if he's been replaced by Stowman? I'd like them to bring Rowan back and do a 'Dark Horseman' storyline. Wyatt's already said that he's the face of fear, Harper is the face of Desolation and Stowman is the face of Destruction - Just tweak it and have them be the faces of War, Famine, Pestilence and Death. Hopefully this might give Bray's promo's some direction and meaning. I love his delivery of his promo's but they're just rambling nonsense and he needs to improve on that IMO.

"She taught me. She taught me from a young age. She said 'you got to get them before they get you. A rattlesnake's skin is the same color as the leaves,' she said. And we all understood her. She led us with her love but she taught us that the fires, well, they were our friends too. 'The world is an evil place,' she said. And we agreed. And I was there, I was there when she took her final breath. She pulled me in close and she said, 'you're the one.' She said, 'They chose you, long before you were ever in existence.' And I understood what she meant. Her touch could save the world but her kiss burns it to the ground. I love you, Sister Abigail."

Bo and Bray's younger sister, Mika Rotunda, had a tryout about a month ago. There hasn't been anything official if she signed. If they did sign her, it would probably be wise to give her a "dark" or "evil" character because when she smiles, she looks eerily similar to Bo.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Sep 2015 14:04:09
. I think it would be great. if you have ever seen the rob zombie movie, "the devils rejects". there is a female character in the evil gang that would be perfect to base a character on. I think The Wyatt's need a change as they came into wwe with so much promise, but lately seem to be stuck in 2nd gear. maybe because Bray never backs up what he says, no matter how good he says it. I think a female in the group would bring a different element to the Wyatt family, and a different character to the divas division.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Aug 2015 10:48:21
They reckon Kane will return this Monday night on Raw, how do you all see him returning? fully masked in his old attire or his recent mask with his recent attire, or just no mask at all and still in corporate style? I'm really looking forward to his return though, hopefully he goes back to his old ways for his last few years of his career.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Aug 2015 11:45:18
The only reason he would come back masked now would be to interact with the Undertaker.

I'd like to see him come back as corporate Kane, but be fired, then off telly for a fortnight before unfortunate things start happening to HHH, Rollins, Steph, eventually it becomes clear its Kane and HHH demands a match, on the go home Raw the authority's office is trashed and the little glass case they keep his mask in is smashed.

They give the returning Kane the most ridiculously over the top fire show as an entrance and he beats HHH clean setting him on his way for a decent run, eventually ending with him putting someone else over at WM32.

Any takers?

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Aug 2015 14:54:55
That sounds all right bessex would be telling a good story with that rather than rushed but will they go with him going after lesnar or rollins the original kane character was best imo would love to see the brothers of destruction back before they retire fuedin with the dudley boys. The wyatt family. The shield. The new day would all makey for good viewing and bring back some importance and more excitement to the tag division

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Aug 2015 16:42:48
Not a bad idea Bessex, as long as AT LEAST 2 out of Kane, Show and Mark Henry retire at WM32!

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Aug 2015 16:49:46
I was expecting Kane to come back Masked at Summerslam to help the Undertaker Beat Brock Lesnar. It was Lesnar who caused Kanes injury.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Aug 2015 20:22:27
It would also make sense if Kane came back masked as the partner of AmbReigns vs the Wyatts.

Ambrose constantly teased Kane about not being a monster anymore and Kane became 'Corporate Kane' after the Wyatt family "kidnapped" him.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Aug 2015 01:06:01
He should return as Fake Diesel or Dr Isaac Yank'Em

{Ed007's Note - And go back to the Kiss My Foot matches, they were great.}

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Aug 2015 12:53:41
I don't see the need for Kane, Henry or Show to retire, they just need to be off TV.

Sting, Taker, and Y2J are as old, if not older, but they are off TV for months/years at a time meaning when they turn up for a run it works.

Week in week out seeing 40 year olds rough up 25 year olds has got boring.

Take them out and bring them back sparingly when their is something for them to do.

Agree1 Disagree0

28 Aug 2015 16:54:30
Yeah, I suppose my 'retire' comment was a bit harsh. They could still be used sparingly, and ONLY to put over new talent. They desperately need to establish the next generation of big men and monsters. Kane and Bigshow being dominated by Harper and Stowman would help to do this.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Aug 2015 18:38:21
Sting - 56
The Undertaker - 50
Kane - 48
Chris Jericho - 44
Mark Henry - 44
Big Show - 43

The Undertaker is expected to retire at WM 32 and I think Henry should as well.

I'd like to see Sting go until WM 33 and then retire. Kane will probably go at least until 50. Jericho might go another 10+ years before officially retiring. Big Show doesn't necessarily have to go soon but he should be put in a tag team or something.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Aug 2015 18:07:22
Another reason for us all to hate John Cena. I've read recently that the original plan for the Diva revolution was for Charlotte to come in and almost immediately beat Nikki for the title and then use her as the face of the division playing heavily on her heritage. Cena went moaning to Vince that his girlfriend deserves to keep the title and overtake AJ for longest reign. All of a sudden the plan for Charlotte is dropped and instead we get the three team idea. No one should be that influential

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Aug 2015 20:54:20
The first Total Divas that airs after 6 months from now will feature Cena giving Nikki a diamond necklace to celebrate her title reign. Later that night someone will post a close up view of it, and it will show that the pendant is a mini diamond shovel.

If we're lucky, Wrestlemania 32 is it for Vince. I just wonder how long Cena is going to stick around after HHH fully takes over. Is Cena going to RESPECT the business and show LOYALTY when HHH tells him it's time to put the shovel away and break out the brick and mortar, or is he going to HUSTLE away to Hollywood because he'll refuse to job to anyone.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Aug 2015 10:06:17
This may not even be true, then a again it may be.

I was assuming that Nicki was boasting about breaking the record now (eg early) because someone will beat her a day early or something.

I'd love to see them use it as the reason to bring AJ back in, but more realistically one of PCB will surly grab the title soon.

Sasha has also dropped the NXT title leaving her free to be involved in the Divas title stuff.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Aug 2015 16:47:20
AJ Lee and Punk both have rocky relationships with WWE. It's no surprise they're trying to get AJ out of the record books (no matter how wrong it seems to us fans) I highly doubt Cena had much to do with their final decision (although that's not to say he wasn't campaigning on his wife's behalf)

Sasha and Charlotte are the future of the women's division. Add in Becky Lynch, Paige, Naomi, Bayley, Natalia and the division isn't too bad at all. Use the Bellas and Lana as eye candy and let the other girls wrestle.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Aug 2015 21:09:15
It's recently been reported that the WWE planned on taking the title off Nikki early in her run before Cena stepped in, and according to the Observer, "internally, she is a lock to remain in a top position for as long as her relationship with Cena is solid."

{Ed008's Note - I read this the other day and I actually believe this report.

I have a better WWE win loss record than Sting and he's blagged a title match with no build.

I am fairly keen for this match, but surly you need more than a sneaky entrance to get a title match.

Owens, Sheamus, Neville, and Taker all just won big PPV matches and Sting gets the match at NOC?

It doesn't bother me, but it is weird.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Aug 2015 13:41:01
Does sting do house shows or dark matches does anyone know?surly they should put him in a few matches on raw smack down or main event to get rid of his ring rust.can see this ending triple h costing sting the title leading to a team authority vs team sting at survivour series

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Aug 2015 15:58:01
How about this for a booking then Bessex.

Sting wins the title at NOC after Kane returns to get his revenge on Rollins.

Taker and Sting then get their match everyone has wanted at Survivor Series (Taker as a heel still) which Taker wins.

Lesnar wins the Rumble setting up the rubber match against Taker at Mania 32

Very part-timer heavy but I think leading to Mania you'll get a lot of this as Vince doesn't have confidence in the new breed as yet

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Aug 2015 21:46:40
I think they should do the Lesnar/Undertaker rubber match at Hell in a Cell.

For Night of Champions.

Rollins beats Cena to retain the US title.
Rusev beats Ziggler after several pictures are shown on the titantron showing Ziggler in intimate settings with other women. Lana runs to the back and Ziggler runs after her, giving Rusev the countout victory. (Yes it's stupid but so is this fued.)
Kane returns to help Ambrose and Reigns beat the Wyatt family.
Sting beats Rollins for the title with help from Cena. Ziggler completes his heel turn by coming out from the crowd and laying out Cena and Sting with the aid of a steel chair. Sheamus starts walking down to the ring as Ziggler leaves. When he goes to cash in, the lights go out. When they come back on, Sting is gone and so is Sheamus' MitB briefcase. Sheamus brogue kicks Cena in anger, to end the show.

Agree0 Disagree1

27 Aug 2015 07:06:24
The other way they could book it is have Sting win both titles from Rollins with some outside interference - Seamus cashes in straight away leaving Sting as US Champ (and very brief WWE Champ).

Sting gets his legacy as a multi champ in WWE and creative get the belt off a heel for the cash-in

Agree1 Disagree0

27 Aug 2015 10:15:30
Very plausible ideas (I don't like the idea of Kane coming back to help the Shield)

I am sure Sting getting this title match is the beginning of a build toward Taker vs Sting.

I think Rollins has had a decent title run, and Sting would have been promised something big to get him to the dance.

Sting winning the title and defending it a few times over the next few months before Taker wins the Rumble would give the legends the perfect way out at Mania.

The US title is bigger than its been for years, and Ryback is over as IC, so there is plenty of ways to keep guys ticking over while they give the Deadman the sort of retirement gift he deserves.

The last of the old guard calling it a day on the grandest stage of them all would be pretty special.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Aug 2015 18:27:21
Best Raw in so so long & not even necessarily for the wrestling but it was unpredictable like the attitude era. Goosebumps for the Dudley boys Oh my Testify! Aswell as all that we've had Seth Rollins, Neville, Kevin Owens, Cesaro all being awesome at Summerslam can't say enough about Seths Performance especially & it's actually a shame he couldn't win that Clean, because he deserves it after the bullsh*t championship run he's had. He finally got to show that he is the man. On top of that a hellacious ladder match the night before with Owens & Balor yet all I'm thinking about is the NXT women's Championship match. There was a lot said about women's wrestling on here a few weeks ago. I don't care what anyone says there was no better match this weekend than what those two young women put on at NXT Takeover. An absolute brutal match & i'm extremely happy for Bayley they way NXT has built her up has been excellent she nails that Bayley to Belly felt like shouting Suplex City plus the Inverted frankensteiner from the top rope Neville needs to step it up lol.

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Aug 2015 09:23:02
Baily and Sasha was excellently executed. They built a story that had me paying attention and wanting to see Baily win.

That's the phycology that so many of todays lack, it was real again for 20 minutes.


Great Raw, good surprise returns, debuts, and legends.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Aug 2015 09:26:50
I got goosebumps from the dudleys.liked the new wyatt aswell looks like a absolute monster actually glad they went with someone brand new. don't care for the divas division but it's taken up more time and longer to fast forward sting showing up was also brilliant everything was unexpected for a change and made for a great raw

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Aug 2015 11:29:11
I Agree mate. Sasha Banks VS Bayley was a great match. I was also really impressed with Owens to have a big ladder match one night and then go on to put on a great show with Cesaro the night after too.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Aug 2015 11:30:44
Loved both the Dudley Boys and Sting. Rollins should be able to carry Sting through the match better than the undertaker so I'm looking forward to it. It's sting, doesn't need that much of a build up.

The divas section with Miz seemed really awkward on the mic and I find it hard to buy into what they're saying

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Aug 2015 17:19:33
New Day are awesome really happy how it's worked out for those 3!

{Ed008's Note - I listened to them on a podcast with Chris Jericho and I got the impression they've put in a lot of hard work into the gimmick and now it's showing. They know how to get there heat back when they've got the crowd chanting "New Day Rocks" Big E has looked incredible in the ring lately.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Aug 2015 18:11:10
I've liked them from the minute they turned heel. Xavier is hillarious that Trombone on Raw was great. Big E looks an absolute Star I don't know how he never shot to the very top & I hope it happens. That Spear he's hitting to the outside is the sh*t!

How sloppy was Cena. Telegraphed the knee to the back by looking to see where Rollins was. Barely caught him on his 3 outside dives. Major botch on the springboard stunner and the top rope fameasser was the worst I've ever seen.
How people like this guy I do not know, stale boring character and dreadful in the ring, if he ever breaks Flair's record it will be a travesty

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Aug 2015 10:09:56
I can't believe after watching a four hour PPV that's what you would come back with?

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Aug 2015 14:38:36
I agree Bessex, it's strange that that's the only thing he took from the PPV. I think he's got a point about Cena at SS though, especially about him not catching Seth for the high spots jumping out the ring. That was dangerous and it's a good job Seth is such an athlete or he could have been hurt.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Aug 2015 17:30:00
I watched the ppv yesterday after work it wasnt all I took from the ppv as I posted as soon as the match finished as it annoyed me that he had to rely on his opponent again to get a half decent match. Either he hasn't improved in over 10 years of in ring action or he is so far up Vince's arse he can get away with being complacent in the ring

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Aug 2015 09:34:33
I didn't take much from the Cena match other that how stupid it was that John Stewart had the final say in the result. I had a little stint of watching the Daily Show and couldn't really believe he was being used in ring.

If I was being really picky I could go through every match and point out where things didn't look great or went wrong, off the top of my head Cesaro fell off the top rope during Summerslam during a spot with Owens, but rightly nobody brings up their mistakes. If you go through any of it with a red marker you'll find mistakes, your just looking harder at big match John.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 Aug 2015 15:53:24
Summerslam fell flat for me. The majority of the matches had no real build for them and although it was not a bad PPV it certainly didn't feel like the 2nd biggest of the year.

The two big positives for me were, New Day and the main event. New Day are genuinely one of the funniest things I have ever seen in wrestling and I hope it continues like that. The main event (finish aside) was a storytelling masterclass with both guys adding in fine details that made the match memorable.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 Aug 2015 21:52:45
What's your thoughts on cena lol

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Aug 2015 23:05:16
Fell flat for me too, felt a chore to sit through at times. Owens & Cesaro delivered as expected, New Day were great (really hope Enzo & Cass debut on Raw, that fued would be amazing), great performance from Rollins & Cena just plodded through it as usual. The main event was really good, I even liked the finish.
The show was really uneventful overall, nothing was really that must see.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Aug 2015 10:11:30
I enjoyed the whole thing, it wasn't quite Takeover, but the matches were as good as a PPV has produced for a long time, back to back quality.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Aug 2015 14:40:19
I agree Bessex, I enjoyed most of it. It was a shame the 2 main events had screwy finishes but overall it was a solid PPV. I think it was on a par with Takeover, but I think Sasha v Bayley was match of the weekend.

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Aug 2015 09:36:13
Takeover helped improve Summerslam for me, the 3 big shows back to back made it seem like a weekend of wrestling.

From NXT to the end of Raw it was a pretty awesome show.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Aug 2015 21:04:50
I've been thinking about SummerSlam and I can't see the top 2 matches finishing clean.
Cena vs Rollins can't end with one man holding h both titles, Cena doesn't need the WWE title as he is actually doing pretty entertaining stuff with the US open challenge. Rollins having both does nothing for either title although a clean win for him would help boost his character I think.
Lesnar vs Taker, it isn't really believable that a 50 year old man would bear Lesnar clean, Taker going over does nothing other than set up match 3. Lesnar has been booked so well in the last 2 years a clean win over him should only be used to give the rub to someone the company see as the future (Reigns, Owen, Etc).
However I can't see both matches having non finishes. So how about this.
Sheamus cashes in making it triple threat. I know already been done at mania but that way only one title changes hands.
Lesnar is about to pin Taker, lights go out, then Kane is in the ring he and Taker destroy Lesnar until Sting makes a save setting up team Taker vs team Lesnar at Survivor Series.

Agree0 Disagree1

23 Aug 2015 23:17:35
Lesnar is a 1 man wrecking machine I would rather see lesnar vs taker and Kane no sting if they are to use sting keep it for a 1 vs 1 against taker. Cena rollins will end a double count out or someone to interfere that way they both keep there titles. Don't want to see a reigns or ambrose turn either ambrose is probably the most over wrestler on the roster and reigns is been made the new cena

Am I the only one that things, they are going to let Brock win because he beat the streak and the Undertaker has had the upper hand on Brock on the recent showing on Monday Night Raw.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Aug 2015 12:00:04
I feel like the WWE will be leaving money on the table if Brock just beats the Undertaker clean and that's the end of their feud.

If Taker wins dirty they can headline another event somewhere down the line.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Aug 2015 13:16:13
Bessex there's not a lot of wrestling left in taker imo so they will get the big build up if he's going to be a heel he can fight cena then further put over ambrose ziggler or reigns but 1 thing for sure is whatever taker does will be worth watchting not sure if the sting fight will happen

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Aug 2015 13:37:20
Like everyone's been saying for years now it seems like Mania will be Takers last show, I'd love it if he could work a match every month until then.

Having him come back and lose to Brock now feels like they are demoting him early. Make him look great until someone gets to take him out on his back in Texas.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Aug 2015 14:41:00
Hope he does fight every if not most ppv's till mania think he will defo be at survivour series with it been 25 years since he debuted what would you say to 1 last championship run I would say no to it but could see the appeal

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Aug 2015 14:54:14
I heard the plans are for Taker to win the title at Mania even if its just to give it up on Raw the next night. Unfortunately the guy going into Mania as champ will be Cena.
Hopefully we get Taker v Sting at Survivor Series which Taker has to win but I will feel for Sting, coming in to job for HHH & Taker, should have had a match at Summerslam to get a needed win in between.

{Ed007's Note - 'Taker v Sting would be terrible to watch.}

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Aug 2015 15:13:08
I agree Ed. Taker Vs Sting is a few years too late. If they could of done it 10 years ago it would have been great but now I think it would probably disappoint. It would never live up to the hype.

{Ed007's Note - Exactly, they're both far too long in the tooth now to put on any kind of decent match involving just the two of them.}

I'm going to go with Taker beating Lesnar. They both take September off. Undertaker has a match at Hell in a Cell that Lesnar ends up interfering with, leading to a rubber match at Survivor Series. Lesnar wins that one and the Undertaker starts an "I'm going to retire" speech that gets stopped by Sting, setting up a match between the two at Wrestlemania.

There is speculation that the Undertaker could work the UK tour in november, as october-november might be a farewell tour of sorts for the Undertaker.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Aug 2015 19:10:12
A Taker vs Sting team at Survivor Series would sate most of the fans though wouldn't it?

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Aug 2015 20:24:56
Watching the Taker now is one of the saddest things I have seen in wrestling for a long time. The man who, in my opinion, dominated the ring like no one else is a complete shadow of his former self.
The only way he will win is by another low blow. Much as he may want to be a heel in his last run, it just doesn't fit.
The Taker was never really a heel and until the end of his career was not really a face either. He was just the Undertaker and occupied a position that nobody did before and certainly hasn't done since.
If he must face Lesnar, please let him lose with dignity and arrange a farewell at Mania that he deserves, that the fans will remember and that will not destroy his legacy.

Agree0 Disagree1

22 Aug 2015 17:43:30
Apart from the Lesnar match where he had concussion early on his matches have been excellent surely? Punk at Mania, HHH X2 even against Wyatt he looked like he had more in the tank - sure he's not in his prime but much better shape than Hogan or Flair were at this stage of their career

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Aug 2015 14:50:31
Saying he is better than Hogan or Flair at the same stage of his career is like saying he is better than a waxwork dummy. The Taker has lost all his mystique and having a wrestler staring open mouthed in pretend shock when the gongs strike changes nothing. He struggled when he interrupted the Lesnar/Rollins match and he will have to be carried throughout his match with Lesnar.
I haven't felt this sad at seeing a fallen hero since Ali fought Holmes.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Aug 2015 10:08:07
I'm almost insulted by the suggestion that the Undertaker is a shadow of his former self, sure he's past the brow of the of the hill, and realistically half way down the other side, but he still holds an audiences attention better than 90% of the current lot.

I hope we get plenty more before he actually rests in peace.

Anyone else think Kevin Owens is walking out a 2 time NXT Champ on Saturday. Everyone seems to think the 2 title matches at Takeover are to obvious because of Owens & Sasha's main roster promotions. though I think Bailey will beat Sasha I also think Owens will beat Balor.
People think its blasphemous to take the title off Balor so soon but why, he was never supposed to hold the title in the first place.
Hideo was supposed to win the triple threat & the Tokyo homecoming title victory was meant for him & not Balor, Balor was going to wrestle Jericho but had to be replaced by Neville.
They also played Hideo's injury to be caused by Owens so when he returns (which I've heard may be sooner than we think) it makes sense to go after Owens.
Owens will probably be glad to spend more time doing double duty & continue working at NXT as his familys located down there. Also if its still too soon for Hideo to return then Owens can finish the fued that's been teased with Samoa Joe. So I think it makes more sense to have Owens become champ, bring Balor up to the main roster & let Owens double duty until Hideo's back to win the title off Owens.

{Ed008's Note - I agree I think Owens will walk out as NXT Champion.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Aug 2015 23:40:12
Sasha will most liely drop the title to Bayley, however I don't think Kevi will beat Finn, only becuase he's on the main roster and he's in a feud with Cesaro now.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Aug 2015 12:04:08
I think the one of the best drawn out feuds in WWE in years has been Owens vs Zayne, I find it hard to believe that Owens won't get his come back from Sami, with the only question being where will that match take place? NXT or Main Roster?

Owens also has unfinished business with Joe.

I won't be surprised to see him pick the belt back up and continue working for both shows, after all NXT TV tapings are 2 days every 6 weeks aren't they?

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Aug 2015 14:59:34
I haven't fogotten about Zayn but I think he's possibly out for the remainder of the year. I'd have Owens finish his business at NXT with Joe & Hideo & whatever he's up to on the main roster & have Zayn make a surprise return at the rumble whilst Owens is the only guy in the ring, possibly Owens the #1 entrant & Zayn for #2. Then they should have that classic grudge match we've been waiting for at Mania.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Aug 2015 15:18:08
I think there are some spoilers out there. NXT Recorded the episodes for after the Takeover last week and certain people had the belts during their matches. I won't say who but if you want to know here is the link.

Balor will retain but Sheamus will cash in MitB on him, claiming that once the NXT title was defended in Japan it became a world title and that the WWE heavyweight titles unification reverted the MitB rule of only being able to cash in on a specific title, back to its original rule of being able to cash in on any world title.

20 Aug 2015 18:05:50
Have had a think about my favourite Summerslam match and a few spring to mind. Taker/Edge, Christian/Orton, HBK/HHH, Rude/Warrior are all contenders, but to me it has to be 1992, Wembley, 80,000 fans and Bret v the Bulldog.
Great, unique atmosphere and a win for Davey Boy.
Bulldog for the Hall of Fame.

{Ed007's Note - To this day I still regret not going down to that ;(

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Aug 2015 20:46:07
Bret & Davey Boys definitely tops it for me. can't believe with the success of SS92 & how fondly remembered it is (by yanks too) that its never been repeated. 92 was the year wrestlemania struck twice.

* Dolph Ziggler w/ Lana vs. Rusev w/ Summer Rae

Surly the Dolf vs Rusev match should have some sort of silly stipulation.

Perhaps a classic whoever loses woman should be the other woman's pet for 30 days.

People would boo for Summer Ray picking on Lana.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Aug 2015 20:08:59
Ziggler and Lana vs Rusev and Summer in a mixed tag match, is rumored for Night of Champions.

Sting, Reigns, and Ambrose vs the Wyatt family w/ a returning Erick Rowan, is also rumored. This of course would change if they decide to pull the trigger on a DA or RR heel turn. Cena vs Rollins also gets the "something might happen." treatment, that would change their rumored NoC match if they decide to do something.

A potential appearance by the Rock is a rumored. Stone Cold, Hall and Nash will be there for the "Ultimate SummerSlam Experience," with Hall rumored to be appearing at TakeOver,

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Aug 2015 23:16:47
Night Of Champions needs to be scrapped unless done properly. Ziggler/Lana v Rusev/Summer has no place on that card. If its not a title match then your not on the card, simple as that. that's at least how i'd book the show.

Agree1 Disagree0

20 Aug 2015 03:28:52
The first year they did it was in 2007, as Vengeance: Night of Champions. all 9 matches were title matches. 2008 was all title matches as well, 2009-2012 each had one match that wasnt a title match, 2013 had two, and last year had two and what would of been a third that would of been Rollins vs Reigns.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Aug 2015 09:28:09
I have no interest in seeing Sting join "The Shield 2"

If Sting is to return for another match it needs to be a singles, and to be honest he needs to win it if you want to give him any credibility for one last match at Mania.

Singles win at NOC, perhaps a tag win at Survivors Series, something for him at the Rumble leading to a showing at Mania (not necessarily Taker, but let's be hi honest its kinda what everyone wants)

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Aug 2015 10:07:32
I really hate these matches that try to build on current/ex-girlfriends or boyfriends. The plots seem to have been written by someone who has not yet reached puberty, make me cringe and waste the talents of very good wrestlers like Rusev & Ziggler.
If people want to see Lana & Summer Ray, chuck them in the Divas.
Ziggler/Rusev is aa great match-up without the fake emotional baggage added.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Aug 2015 15:54:40
Going back to a post we had a little while ago with my thoughts on the divas I say make it a spanking match.

Whoever wins gets to spank the others Mrs.

The Blonde Hottie 3 Way match.

Dolf vs Rusev, winner gets a night in a hotel room with both girls.

Dolf wins, then a camera follows across the street to a local hotel and you see them enter a room and the door close, pans back to Rusev who has made his way out in to the street on his knees howling at the moon.

Just to make it a little more Benny Hill Summer and Lana should have spent the match in long rain coats that they drop as they enter the hotel room to revil a second of them in lingerie.

Its what Vince Russo would do, and dammit, people would have tuned in!

19 Aug 2015 18:12:08
Looks way more stacked & cluttered than normal nxt ppv's. Its still only 2hrs long isn't it. Who's Elias Samson?.
Also if they are squeezing everybody onto the card just for the sake of it then where'e Solomon Crowe.
Also Tye Dillinger looks like he's finally getting some sort of push with this 10 gimmick so why throw him to Crews now.
I've been more hyped for this event than Summerslam lately but if this is the real card then its abit of a letdown. To many pointless matches taking time away from the big ones, hopefully some are just dark or preshow matches & then have just 5 or 6 for the actual event.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Aug 2015 20:29:01
The show will be three hours and a couple of matches will be dark matches.

My guess is the Bull Dempsey match will be a dark match, and the Eva Marie match would become one if the crowd went old school ECW with their chants and what not. Good thing is, it's 2015 not 1995 so someone will put the match online if WWE tries to hide it.

I don't know why Crowe isn't doing anything. I would be more than happy though, if the Switchblade Conspiracy reunited at SummerSlam.

Luke harper is the best big wrestler in wwe right now he's got it all hope he gets a big push after the wyatt family

Agree2 Disagree0

19 Aug 2015 13:03:37
Certainly has all the tools. He has the sort of look that suggests if he trys hard, stays focused, and bides his time one day he could be built and fed to John Cena.

Agree1 Disagree0

19 Aug 2015 18:17:21
Yeah Harpers amazing & yet like most wwe wrestlers that's came from the indies your only seeing about 50% of what they can actually do on wwe. Probably only 25% with Neville & Cesaro.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Aug 2015 18:25:17
Haha belter Bessex. Don't know how long I've been saying this about Harper. He & Bray should hold the tag titles if there's nothing better for them. They are the perfect Beast with Brays Mic Work & Harpers Skills. Brays good too but Luke Harpers just awesome.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Aug 2015 20:43:09
The WWE should create an Iron Man title, that would of course be defended in an Iron Man match. Making each defense, a monthly special on the Network.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Aug 2015 01:50:17
I said before the Wyatts were debuting that Harper was very good for his size and I got some slagging for it on here. Not any of the regular posters nowadays but there was a certain JEPW that slagged me for the comment.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Aug 2015 09:31:20
I remember people saying he was going to be the stand out of the Wyatts, and its fair to say he is well on his way.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Aug 2015 10:01:15
Remember that Bear, mind you he slagged anyone off who didn't agree with him.
I like Harper as a wrestler, but I am not sure he has the mic work to let the WWE powers that be trust him with a championship for any length of time.
I am happy enough at the moment to see where the Wyatt Family is going.
