I actually think I am looking forward to the RAW after NOC more than NOC itself.
A number of issues will have been settled.
The Cena question will have resolved one way or the other, at least for the time being.
The tepid feuds of Orton/Jericho, Rusev/Henry & Ziggler/Miz will hopefully be over and new storylines can be introduced.
Ambrose is due back (though most suspect that he will be drawn into NOC now Reigns is missing).
The Dusts will hopefully have won the tag titles, which is starting to show some promise with the USOs, Wyatts, The Ascension (hopefully) all involved.
Either Cesaro/ Sheamus or Ziggler/Miz have a chance to try to unite the titles (long overdue) with a large number of mid-carders being involved.
The Divas will still be all about Paige & AJ still, even though I wouldn't be surprised if Bella won tonight.
NXT wrestlers could even have their chance.
Then of course there is Rollins/Reigns/Ambrose.
There is a chance to start some interesting feuds building up to Wrestlemania.

Rusev vs Henry - Rusev wins then moves on with a feud against cena

Y2J vs orton - Orton

Rollins vs reigns - Not going to happen but Rollins will come out with a ref and 10 the count thing and on 9 Ambrose music plays and he returns setting up for a match which Ambrose wins.

I think we can mix two on-going topics here, NOC predictions and Vince.
If Cena does win, then it will all be down to Vince who still seems to believe that Cena is the best champion of all time. Also it would help with the WWE contract with Matel and the rest. Like him or not, Cena sells action figures.
If this nightmare situation does happen two things will happen.
1. It will show how out of touch Vince now is
2. WWE will have sunk to a whole new level.
Oh and a 3rd one. BigBear will explode.

Following his recent 'open letter' to the WWE, Russo has now done an 8 minute video to Vince McMahon.
It seems to be part rant, part 'I was responsible for the attitude era' part from the heart and part a plea for a job. His dearvineproject web site seems to be self promotion, but he did make one very valid point.
Russo states he hasn't bought the network yet as the standard of current wrestling, in particular RAW, does not justify the fee.
I feel the same and while we don't know the cost yet, I feel that what is advertised will not justify aa monthly fee yet.

I'd like to see Austin v Cena or Austin v Lesnar. I'd also like to see Austin v CM Punk. For more obscure choices Austin v Daniel Bryan would be good. If you could use Austin to get him over then Austin v Ambrose (the 'new Austin' imo) would be quality and would be 'best for business' the only problem is the fans will turn on pretty much anyone if they face Austin.

Wrestlemania 31:
I would love the Authority to be in the ring acting all smug as usual when all of a sudden Angle's music hits and he comes out and berates HHH. Angle says that since Vince left him in charge the product has suffered and the board of directors have noticed that Raw is losing viewers as well as the company losing money so they have decided that they would like to wish you well on your future endeavors and that as replacement COO the following rectifications will be implied. Brock Lesnar you will face Daniel Bryan in a submissions match for the WWE World Heavyweight Title, Seth Rollins you will face Dean Ambrose in a no holds barred match and HHH as you are still an active member of the roster you will face "The Best In The World" CM Punk inside a steel cage. Just as he is about to leave he remembers that Stephanie is in the ring and he informs her that she has a one on one with Brie Bella and if anybody interferes then they will be fired.

Can't see Brock v Bryan. If Cena can't beat Brock then would anyone believe Bryan had a chance. It will be Reigns unfortunately

I am sure the headline will be Reigns or Bryan vs Brock for the title.

But the main event will be if they can keen Rollins Vs Ambrose as hot as its been and set up a blow off at Mania.

I will be impressed if Ambrose can stop Rollins cashing in right through until then, perhaps denying him pinning Brock after Elimination Chamber could be the final straw, setting up a big gimmick match for Mania.

(0)
(0)

As it stands, I would love to see the three headline matches being;

WWE Championship
Brock Lesnar (C) vs The Rock

Dean Ambrose vs Seth Rollins

John Cena vs Roman Reigns


I don't think any of the 3 former Shield members are ready for the title yet, I would wait til at least the last night of his holding of the briefcase before Rollins cashes in, successfully or not.

I believe it would be more beneficial for Reigns, who will be the next big face of the company, to go over John Cena at this stage than be rushed into being champion.

Rock vs Brock, it may be two part-timers, but it would draw massive numbers and is a match I'd personally love to see.

This thread proves that the most talented all rounder in the company has been buried (or at least forgotten about). Bray Wyatt.
Would rather see Bray v Ambrose at mania than the story with Seth (as good as its been so far) to run that long.

Woody101

I'm not certain that Bryan will be fit even for Wrestlemania.
Main event?
Brock - v - Orton.

Back-up
I can see a situation for a Shield triple threat match. I have a feeling that Ambrose & Reigns will not stay buddies until than.

Over-hyped match
Cena - v - anyone, but he will probably be the one to save the stars & stripes by beating Rusev.

Best Match
If the Shield one doesn't happen then a US Champios match involving Sheamus, Barrett, Cesaro & Swagger.

Most obvious match
AJ - v - Paige (again)

Surprise Match
Batista - v - HHH

Saddest mach
Taker - v?

Vince McMahon really needs to just go away now. He has not got a clue what entertainment is anymore and he sure as hell has not got a clue about good wrestling. Almost every sh*t decision that is made and makes it on to TV is through him. Again we have reached another point where if Cena wins I am done with it. Like Bessex my interest is waining to the point I just listen to Bruce Blitz review and if anything sounds good I will check it out. I seen the Cena segments this week and they were terrible, apart from Heyman. So if Cena takes that title off Lesnar or Lesnar gets himself counted out or disqualified on purpose then cheerio.

Hopefully since the WWE floated the share holders will be able to put enough pressure on to ensure Vince hangs up his tights. His ideas seem so out-dated, his idea of what to him is comedy is mearely cringe worthy to everyone else and his blind belief in Cena is unforgiveable.

I actually enjoyed certain bit of Raw this week.

What I didn't get was why did Riegns face rollins one on one if they are doing it at Night Of Champions? I've seen it now, apparently i'm going to see it again on Smackdown.

I enjoyed Heyman and Cena, and thought that Khali was actually a little funny.

I enjoyed Brock coming down, I enjoyed seeing Cena lose it with Heyman.

I really enjoyed seeing an under card match promo get to close out Raw with Henry and Rusev, that really made what is in fairness an enhancement match seem more important.

I like the fact they had tag matches pitting the NOC opponents against each other in mixed up matches.

It wasn't bad, its just always a little bit of a let down.

I'm with both of you - only 2 matches really worth it.
Orton - v Jericho seems just chucked together and I really don't get it. Henry is only warming the plate up for cena to be the one to eventually beat Rusev.
Don't see the point of spoiling a decent divas feud by adding anyone else to AJ & Paige.
Reigns & Rollins seems to have been added to pad out the bill when it has the potential to be the best of the lot & they have already just done it on RAW.
Some new feuds have to start coming into place to slowly build up to Mania.

I hear that Christian is returning to WWE soon.
What is the point? Batista returns and goes. RVD returns and goes. Christian? Not as good as either of the above. Fail to see the need to fill a space by bringing him back. Give the new faces on NXT a chance.
WWE is already starting to look like it has a 'masters' section. Old faces return, talk about how good Cena is, get disrespected by a heel and get rescued by a face (normaly Cena).
Please, please, please. Give the new guys a chance to take centre stage.
I don't want Sting v Undertaker at Wrestlemania a good 20 years after it should have happened. I don't want Angle back to be beaten by Cena.
There is sufficient talent in the WWE at the moment and great potential from NXT.
Come on HHH. While the networks and shareholders demand names (Hogan, Piper etc) there is a great chance to build up a programme to rival the 90's.

Wasn't Arn Anderson credited with saying "I know its s***, but they will cheer it because its new s***"

I personally believe you can make more shock moments the established stars you have, especially if you rest them for 9 months a year.

A peep show seems daft, if Christian ran in and cost Shamus the US or Ziggler the IC titles you'd have the makings of a fine tv feud. It would have got a huge pop if nobody had know he was there as well.

Bring the vets back for short stints, entwine them with up and comers, and main event feuds make a better show.

Who can say they've seen anything on Smackdown in the last year that would fill 20 minutes better than Christian vs Sami Zayn?

I think the WWE makes more money than that off of Brocks appearances and merch every year and they have to meet his terms.

If they don't pay him what he wants he won't cry about it, he just won't come to work there.

Brock shouldn't work and earn money to subsidise people who don't draw.

If Vince is paying him $5m and only earning an extra $4m then its a problem, but what percentage of the money he makes the WWE is he allowed to demand?

(1)
(0)

I always say the same about footballers, Rooney is earning £300k a week, but he is in the top 1% of what he does, shouldn't he earn a large percentage of United's income?

Where does that money go if you don't give it to the performer?

Brocks the same, he on a par with only The Rock is the biggest draw in Wrestling. He should earn a fortune.

Punk for me will never be on Lesnars level. But leave it another couple of years and he will be able to command a nice lump sum for a similar limited appearance deal.

Brock is a genuine monster. Nobody else like him in wrestling. Worth every penny and will earn more for WWE than he takes out.

Of course Cena makes more than everyone else. The younger you are, the more merchandise your parents will buy for you. I refer you to Heyman's description of Cena - those who cheer for him are tucked into bed by their mummies.

{Ed008's Note - No prices have been announced as of yet it has to be under £6 for me if they want success in the UK..

Here here ed not paying £10 for network £6 seems reasonable as $9.99 converts to £6.15

Call

{Ed008's Note - I ain't paying £10 as it means we get like £5 discount off a PPV whilst the US enjoy a $50 off theirs trying to bump us off MAX £8 tbh

It'll be the equivelant of $9. 99 I think so about £6. 05.

(0)

Knowing the rich market that the UK is I'm half convinced it will be £9. 99 sterling, just to fit the marketing, knowing that a huge percentage of UK wrestling fans are older dudes that can afford the price of a sandwich on top of what they're charging Americans.

Considering the price of the new Iphone over here compared to the american market don't assume we'll get the same deal for the network as the yanks do.

America seems to slap on a tax for exporting everything to us Brits.

Anyone know but there was an nxt takeover advertised last night on sky sports 3 would that be takeover 2 or takeover 1 because why would they be showing the first one last night even though it happened in May time

Call

{Ed008's Note - I don't think they can show NXT Takeover 2 as it's a Network exclusive probably have to wait till October 1st when the Network launches here to watch it.

Was probably the new one as it wasnt officially called Takeover 2, just take over, then got the subtitle fatal 4 way added on recently. I doubt it was the first one.

The NXT weekly show is "network exclusive" as well and that is on Sky Sports.

{Ed008's Note - But is NXT live on the network or pre-recorded?

Unknown? Its certainly recorded by the time it gets to Sky.

That said I think they record a few weeks at a time, so some must be recorded on the Network as well.

What did you guys make of Take Over if you watched it. I can't think of a better Fatal 4 Way than that one. The hair match was hilarious, love Enzo on the mic. The womens title match was good though not as good as the previous 2 ppv ones. Disappointed Kenta's now known as Hideo Imoti (or something like that) but made an impact at The Ascensions expense.
Overall i'd say it wasnt as good as Arrival or the first Takeover but definatly a must see for wrestling if only for main event alone.

I genuinely think that at long last the WWE are on to something with the NXT on RAW. It has the benefit of new, exciting faces on main time wrestling and will hopefully encourage the management to keep investing in NXT.
Plus there is a potential big names v up and comers feud.

Fair play to HHH what he is doing is best for business apparently he wants more cross branded matches where nxt stars will appear on raw and smackdown also if this is true he has brought up the likes of the wyatt family and Rollins, reigns and Ambrose over the last two years and in my eyes they are the best wrestlers in wwe at the momemt

Since Triple H took over NXT has gone from strength to strength. It stopped being a stupid reality type show and became a genuine development area. The NXT shows are generally the best wrestling shows WWE produces and it's god to see them bring guys up to freshen up the roster. I would love it to get to a point like the late 90's early 2000's where 6 or 7 top guys were gunning for the title. It proved that to be truely successful (merch and TV product) you don't need a face of the company you need faces

I think NXT should be kept well away from Raw and Smackdown.

If people get over on NXT when they arrive on Raw it will be a big deal.

If you want to see top stars fighting NXT talent send them down to NXT.

Make it seem like a different company.

I reckon a good way to turn Cena, would be to use Stinger. Anyone remember the story line when Sting would come down and save WCW Wrestlers from the NWO, then he would throw his bat to the wrestler and turn his back, giving them an opportunity to declare are they with him or against him.
If they use the same angle against the Authority, leading up to Wrestlemania, they could have Sting make a save on Reigns, Bryan, Big Show and The Undertaker using the I've got your back, have you got mine. At the Royal Rumble they could have Reigns winning the Rumble then being attacked by the Authority, The Wyatt family and Heymans wrestlers. Bryan Big show The Undertaker who Sting have saved in Raw shows could come down one at a time for the save, and be beat down. Cena could be the last to come down but be out shone by Sting turning up with his bat. When they have cleared the ring, Sting could throw Cena his bat and turn his back. Giving Cena the perfect way to turn heel and set up Wrestlemania matches between Show vs Orton, Bryan vs Wyatt, Reigns vs Cena Sting vs Triple H and a rematch between Undertaker and Brock.
It would be great Story line to run with.

Or they could come up with something new. Why is it in vogue at the moment to re-hash things that were succesful in the past. Hollywood is at it too, the amount of rebots in the last 5-6 years is ridiculous. Original stories please

That was 17yrs ago so a lot of fans haven't seen it before, Sting is never going to be shown at his best at his age, so why not have him and his Bat take on triple h and his sledge hammer, which hasn't been done before. Sting taking on the Authority would be what the fans would expect and Cena turning heel is what the fans want. I think it would be a great way to give them both.

Taker v Lesnar, you got to be joking right, why would anyone want to see that again. Also Orton v Show I wouldn't wanna see on Raw, let alone Mania.

I still think if healthy enough Sting V Taker at WM31 as Sting has gone on record over the summer saying it's the match he wants. With the streak gone it actually throws some jeopardy as to the result. Not sure how Sting V Taker would be set up if he is taking on the authrity I can't see Taker being a heel he way too respected by the fans now. I could see Sting coming to challenge the Authority but I think given his age he will most likely be the figure head rather than physically invovled. it will most likely be after WM though

Sting vs Taker writes itself, one turns up and the other interrupts the firsts.

They stare and don't speak and everyone wants to see it.

They should pull an ultimate swerve and have them team up together.

A Taker and Sting led stable would be almost as good as a match between them and at this stage in their career might actually save some embarrassment for all involved

{Ed008's Note - Haven't decided how long it'll run for as we've started it in September may run it till April and start a new season after Wrestlemania or have it run till next years Night of Champions PPV, the plan is to add 4 transfer windows aswell to help combat injuries picked up from wrestlers or to freshen up your stable if their not performing etc

everyone seems to go on about roman should beat Brock at WM 31 but I think this could pan out well if done correctly but is highly unlikely.
AT NOC Paul Heyman costs Brock Lesnar the WWE championship and revealing he joined forces with a new heel cena and again stabbing lesnar in the back. Lesnar is then injured the following week by Cena through an attack from behind. Going on into his championship matches cena now gets disqualified/ wins cleanly sometimes/and help from heyman etc. Going into WM 31 Roman Reigns wins the Rumble and then goes on to beat Cena and now the WWE gives the kids a new babyface hero but isn't booed by the adults as a result of him beating cena because every adult hates him. Thoughts?

That works in my head, and the best thing is it isn't paint by numbers, there would be a few mark out surprises on the way.

I take it from some comments on here the last few months that a lot of you like William Regal as a commentator. Well apparently he was only appointed GM on NXT to get him off commentary as they feel he's terrible on it & incredibly boring. Seems a joke when you look at the 3 worst commentators ever on Raw.

Woody101

I think they treat NXT as a breeding ground for everything.

He will be NXT commissioner now and if he does well I think he will be back on Raw or Smackdown as an authority at some point.

He has proved he could do a job as an announcer, now someone else will get the chance.

I'm sure he wasn't taken off the desk because they don't like his style.

I like JBL, and I know I'll get stick for this but Cole isn't THAT bad. Jerry the King is TERRIBLE now, he used to be awesome back in the atittude era, but PG Face Commentator Jerry is the absolute worst IMO!

I'd love to see:
RAW: JBL, Cole, JR (never going to happen)

Smackdown: JBL, Cole and that new guy (give him a chance)

I think the biggest problem with the announcers is they have lost credibility because of the amount of app promotion, replays, and sponsorship stuff they HAVE to talk about.

It wouldn't be the worst idea in the world to have the commentary team swap out after 90 minutes. Three hours of the same old does go on.

(0)
(0)

All the network plugs should be done inbetween matches/segments. Get the divas/fluff to advertise it and let the commentary team call the match or current feuds. In 20 years time when people watch these matches back on either youtube or the network they won't want Michael Cole's constant nagging

Sean O'Haire had those incredible vignettes at one point that never really went anywhere.

The Devil on your shoulder character seemed great and then never got used.

Sad to hear of another one gone, the worst thing is I had him down in that next generation that was supposed to be in an era where they were looked after.

Does anybody else believe the wwe creative team have wasted Bray Wyatt? In fact Rowen and Harper too! At a recent house show they wer defeated by the uso's and the great khali in a 6 man tag match? This storyline with Jericho is terrible, they need someone to put him against to boost him back up again, I was certain he was going to win the world title soon, I was bigging him up to be the next best thing there was and now since he lost to cena he seems to b in a downward spiral.

If it wer up to me I would have him come into a feud with dean ambrose, these 2 would bring in great crowd numbers and are both excellent performers, there both crazy enough to put on a great match.

I hope they don't ruin him, I can imagine the Wyatt family turning super face and then just being made a joke of if it carries on, I just hope they fix it before they become the next kaientei

I genuinely believe that wins and losses don't matter.

On TV he comes off of as threatening to anyone and that's his job for the minute.

I think he is a potential future world champion, but every time someone has a good six months doesn't mean he has to be pushed to the moon.

I think Bray is doing well, and over the next few years we will see how far he can go.

I think there are bigger roles for the Rowan and Harper as well down the road, they both look like they could be more than henchman.

The SuperRoboCena shovel strikes again. Bray needed to go over at WM, this is what happens to most new talent who connect quickly with the fans. they get pushed they appear on the brink of cracking to main event then they meet Cena, get buried and slide back down the card to mediocrity, it happens time and again. The Wyatt Family need to have big feud and win, I would have them go against Show and Henry, two established stars with main event pedigree in their recent past. Have them win the feud convincingly just to gain back some momentum

(0)
(0)

I swear what I think "buried" is and what everybody else does is something completely different.

Is Bray Wyatt now losing on superstars week in week out, or did he win a steel cage match against the a multiple former world champion on the main show this money?

Cena's really killed him, look at how much money and air time he is getting. I bet Zach Ryder wishes he could get buried this bad.

Agree with Bessex

It's poor that Cena did really kill their momentum but buried implies that's it, the character's over. That's clearly not the case with Bray. I agree it was stupid to have Cena decimate the entire Wyatt family so easily though
