What do you guys think of this as a possible idea.

When Balor returns he is involved somehow into a trade with ambrose going to raw and balor going to smackdown to feud with styles.

Jericho disowns Owens leaving Owens to fend for himself. But Owens is going around trying to recruit someone to step up and help him out. Potentially a tag team from NXT? Then when ambrose is over on raw he joins and reforms the shield to then feud with Owens and a upcoming tag team. Maybe it's a short term feud but this way it gives us a great match in balor vs styles and also potentially helps reigns slightly get over with the shield reforming? May be a stupid idea would love to know what you guys think!

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Dec 2016 22:16:30
If Balor's available for the Rumble, I wouldn't mind him winning it and moving to Smackdown that way. It seems that's going to be the only chance anyone major changes brands.

If they're going to get the Shield back together at any point. It should just be for a feud, and it should be against guys that can still claim a higher standing in WWE. A trio of names like Goldberg, Lesnar, and the Undertaker. It's also something they could do without all being on the same brand. Which as long as there's a brand split, I feel they should never all be on the same brand.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Dec 2016 21:24:26
this is something I've been talking about a while but when do you guys think was the best 'missed opportunity' to turn Cena heel?

Personally I think it would've had the best effect to either:
Have him cost Bryan the title at WM 30. This would have arguably caused the most heat for him as Bryan was MEGA over at the time as we all know

Or

Before the streak was wasted on Lesnar, have Cena cheat to break the streak and cement a heel turn

Interested to hear your guys opinions as alaways.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Dec 2016 00:16:55
Until recently. His character has never really had a reason to turn heel, since he's become a World Champion. In 9 and a half years he won the title 15 times by just being a dick and having disposable friends. It's not until these last couple of years, where there are reasons for him to turn to the dark side.

I wouldn't of had Cena screw DB out of the title at Mania, but if DB hadn't gotten hurt and they could of played out a storyline. It would of made sense to have Cena turn on DB later on.

I'd have Cena turn at next year's SummerSlam. Having him win #16. That SS would mark 3 years since his last title reign, and over the last year or so, he's started to lose clean to guys that have become the center of attention.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Dec 2016 17:25:45
The only time to turn Cena heel would be when you have some one ready to take his place as the face of the company.

They had the chance when Punk and Bryan were at their peaks.

Could someone like AJ Styles really become the champ to run the camp? Unknown.

Ambrose, Rollins and Reigns are obvious potentials, they want to push Finn to the moon as well.

As for Cena he'd be a great heel if he just carried on saying all the same things but buddied up with Bryan and Shane, occasional cheating, people boo him anyway, as he starts to lose his spot have him up to stay on top, basically what everyone accuses him of.

"Do you know how much merchandise money I bring in"

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Dec 2016 20:57:41
I'd do the heel turn at Mania. Taker's last Mania. Let Cena beat him but not fairly. My favourite RAW is always the one following Mania and would love to see the reaction he would get.
May even give Taker a last shot at redemption at Summerslam.

Who else thinks it's insulting that ellsworth walks rite into a main event spot and guys in nxt like roose Joe etc have to go threw nxt

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Nov 2016 23:12:40
If it was a serious main event spot, I would be mad. He's just a plot device though. His entire time at the "top" is and will be about making Ambrose look like a better face or heel. If Ambrose stays a face, it will probably end similar to the Cena/ Ryder "friendship. " If Ambrose turns heel, it will probably be by figuratively murdering Ellsworth. Kind of like Lesnar with Zach Gowen.

Some fans and probably some wrestlers are mad at the attention and wins he's gotten, but they shouldn't be. Things for Ellsworth don't end in a way any wrestler with serious aspirations would want for themselves or fans would want for the under-utilised wrestlers they're championing. Ellsworth is just a cash cow to WWE. When he dries up, they'll slaughter him, fry him up for dinner, and use his bones to pick their teeth clean.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Dec 2016 11:32:09
I don't think you can take him serious to be fair haggis as jables says he his the current cash cow and are just milking him and will look to use him to enhance someone else when the time is right and we will never hear from him again Zach gowen style if ambrose snaps and does something similar it will be unbelievably good imo ambrose works better as a heel imo his dark side is better.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Dec 2016 12:12:42
I cannot stand Ellsworth. This has Vince written large all over it.
What Vince finds funny must go in even though nobody else does.
I think I even preferred Hornswoggle to this. It is turning what should have been a great feed between Styles and Ambrose into a comedy routine.
The sooner he has gone, the better.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Dec 2016 16:42:54
I like him, it would have been more insulting to use a proper wrestler for this mascot bit, although it would have fit Slater's lovable loser down to the ground.

Agree0 Disagree1

01 Dec 2016 17:50:04
Since the split, most people have been saying how Smackdown is the better brand and until recently I was one of them. But now I am not too sure.
Over the last 2 months everything seems to have stalled. American Alpha are not doing anything, The Miz, who was doing some of his best work ever against a resurgent Ziggler is going in circles and maybe the two hottest wrestlers at the time, Styles and Ambrose have been hijacked by a clown.
What the WWE have effectively done is replace Cena with Ellsworth and which ever way you look at it is wrong.
Ellsworth adds nothing and the emphasis placed on him has brought Smackdown to a stuttering halt.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Dec 2016 18:58:47
Think we all thought when the brand split happened we were looking forward to more decent wrestling from smackdown and the stories from raw, this story line with ellsworth should come to an end at TLC, good run pay check and on TV but hopefully it's good luck but good bye after, push some potential good matches I hope orton styles bray ambrose dolph soon to be cesaro and zayn on smackdown with wrestling feuds not TV ones.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Dec 2016 23:17:23
I'd like to see a better balance between wrestling and non-wrestling segments, but I still enjoy most of what Smackdown does. As long as they have good-great matches at the ppvs, I'm happy.

I'm excited for TLC.
I expect Ambrose vs Styles to be gold. If it's the end for them, I'm excited to see what's in store for each as Mania season draws near. I'd be more than happy to see them go at it, all the way to Mania. Even happier if they added Cesaro, Nakamura, and/ or Joe into the mix.

Miz vs Ziggler should be a good match, and I'll be happy to see the feud end.

I'm interested to see how hardcore they get in the two women's matches. 'Someones getting some backtitties MAGGLE! '

Kalisto vs Corbin could end up being pretty good. End of Days on to a chair would give SD the automatic win for best ppv this month, in my eyes.

Wyatt Family vs I got Kids and Cheese Whiz, is the only match I don't expect much from and it'll still probably be pretty solid. Bray/ Orton is another one that I could see lasting to WM.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Dec 2016 09:51:53
I prefer Smackdown, I still think there is more flow to the show, and there tends to be a reason given for pretty much every match.

Imo Sasha Banks and Charlotte stole the show again last night.

Agree1 Disagree0

30 Nov 2016 21:41:37
Better than 90 percent of the roster mate simple.

Agree0 Disagree1

30 Nov 2016 23:40:52
Yeah that was a great match. Maybe the best match they've had. To be honest these 2 and Bayley have put on some amazing matches over the last few years but that might be the best of them, it had everything. It's definitely up there with the Sasha v Bayley Iron Woman and Ladder matches IMO.

With regards to the rest of the show, I think that was the best RAW since the brand split. I liked that there were more back stage fights and attacks and most segments were entertaining. Throw in 2 good matches (Reigns v Owens and New Day v the Club) and one excellent one and all in all it was a very good RAW.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Nov 2016 18:12:15
Mate it was unbelievable a don't care wit anybody says they put on better matches than half of the roster on either brand. Ye can't help but invest in the matches.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Nov 2016 16:32:47
The Cruiser Weights. A little while ago, Bessex posted that they weren't doing anything for him (I am not quoting directly, but just what I remembered). I disagreed with him at the time, but now I must say Bessex was right.
The difficulty is that apart from the cruiser weight tournament, which I enjoyed immensely, the cruisers have been thrown in at the deep end as fillers on RAW without any chance for their characters to have developed first. The fans have no idea who is who, what their styles are, whether they are faces or heels or any background at all. This is why Kendrick is the champion as non-hard core fans have heard of him.
It retrospect it would have been far better to have introduced them slowly on NXT.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Nov 2016 07:22:05
Even smackdown would have been a better platform.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Nov 2016 11:03:00
They don't need characters as such for me, they need to steal the show.

The problem they have is the flips, dives and spingboards are not competing with Hogan vs Big Show anymore.

What can Rich Swann do that Rollins isn't already doing?

They either need to up it, or take it back to NXT.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Nov 2016 14:24:35
Yeah I agree that it's not working. For me it's a little of both your reasons. I think the Cruiser weights need characters and storylines, other wise why should I care about them? There's also the point Bessex made about the rest of the roster being just as athletic and/ or capable in the ring so it's harder for the Cruiser weights to stand out. TJ Perkins seems like a natural face to me. It was a mistake for him to win the CWC as it left his character with no where to go. Some one else should have won it and then TJ should have been chasing the belt. They need to get the belt of Bryan Kendrick ASAP IMO.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Nov 2016 10:21:39
The highlights of cruiserweight wrestling was in about 1996 when they used to have fatal fourways on Nitro including the best of Japan and Mexico, it seemed so fast, I'd hate to go back now, because its probably just the same.

At the time wrestling was still 6'8 guys weighing 300lbs holding each other in headlocks, and actually trying to convince people it was a fight.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Nov 2016 09:51:13
Can someone fill me in about smackdown is it orton and bray going for the tag titles or harper and orton? Don't see what the point is of putting tag title on bray, they could finally be a dominant force if they had orton and harper tag camps and bray chasing title, yet more superstars being booked wrong if it is bray an orton! Still seems wrong not mentioning randy orton in the title scene!

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Nov 2016 10:55:58
It is a bit weird not to have either going for the world title, but Wyatt needs to win a title soon, he still hasn't held one.

The way I see it going is Wyatt and Orton will team together and Harper is going to get jealous of the relationship between them. Also at some point Orton has to turn, as he won't be a Wyatt forever. Not sure if anyone has noticed Harpers expressions and body language towards Orton since he joined the Wyatt family

If it were to be a world title scenario, it would be too similar to Owens and Jericho at the moment on Raw. It also means taking the title off of Styles and going from a heel champ to another heel champ, not happening.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Nov 2016 11:02:22
Well, Bray said it was him and Randy. I don't necessarily think this is a bad thing. They are concentrating on Styles/ Ambrose, and Miz/ Ziggler at the moment. I still think it is only a matter of time until the Viper turns on Bray which will give a meaningful non-title rivalry which Smackdown (though not as much as RAW) is crying out for.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Nov 2016 15:06:49
I figure Bray and Orton win the titles, but it ends up being Harper and Orton that defend them. Leaving Bray open for other things.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Nov 2016 16:51:31
Orton playing a game gets Harper jealous so he turns on bray and leaves the family then bray has no back up when orton goes for him.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Nov 2016 11:32:05
With due respect to Rhyno and Slater how they are tag cha is odd.

Put the Wyatt's or the Uso in play so the belts means something.

I don't care about Slaters kids.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Nov 2016 14:28:46
It's not often I disagree with you Bessex but I think they were spot on to give Rhyno and Slater the tag belts. The USO's and American alAlpha will be the focal point of the tag division for the next 2 years so it made sense to capitalise on Slater's momentum with the fans and give them the win. Regardless of what people think of them, Slater and Rhyno are pretty over now. The only tag team I don't like on Smackdown are the Hype Bro's (even the Ascension have grown on me)

Agree1 Disagree0

29 Nov 2016 10:23:52
I didn't mind them winning it, and get job, but to keep winning is daft.

Slater could be on the cusp of the world Title had they given him Elswoth's role.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Nov 2016 19:55:28
do you guys think charlotte is the right choice as raw womens champ?
imo I think she is the right choice as I am not convinced by sasha banks. wouldn;t mind bayley as the one to take the title possibly at mania



also in regards to tlc, I can see aj winning, lights go out and taker appears

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Nov 2016 23:00:57
I would also go with Charlotte until Mania, with Bayley winning it from her. I like Sasha, but she could use a reboot heel turn. Do something like the Rock with the corporation.

Taker is supposedly not a lock to be ready for the Rumble, so I'd guess they'll probably make him a tentative entrant in the Rumble match.

Ambrose isn't losing at TLC clean. So if AJ is keeping the belt, I'm guessing either Cena or the Wyatts cost Dean the match.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Nov 2016 00:18:13
Called taker styles the other week. Great match.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Nov 2016 08:53:43
I think Charlotte is a great heel but she can be quite dangerous in the ring. I do think they will build up to Bayley taking the belt at Mania. But then again we said the same thing last year with Sasha and WWE had other plans.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Nov 2016 10:33:40
I am a fan of Charlotte, looks like she could actually kick your ass.

Baily's popularity can't be ignored, Triple Threat at Mania would be special.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Nov 2016 11:43:29
I think Charlotte is a great performer now. She's got loads better since coming to the main roster, as has Becky Lynch, Sasha and Bayley (so far) haven't really shown any improvement since stepping up to the main roster. Bayley has only just come up. so that's a bit harsh on her but I honestly think Sasha has gone backwards since NXT. I used to think Sasha was the best all round performer but now I'm convinced it's Charlotte (she's also the most reliable in terms of injuries etc)

I can see it being Charlotte v Bayley for the title and Sasha v Nia Jax at WM (Sasha and Niamey will probably. be on the previous show) There is always the opportunity to go with a triple threat or a fatal 4 way.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Nov 2016 10:39:25
Is it me or is Stroman looking really good?

He moves really well for such a lump, and when he hits someone it looks like it kills them.

When he talks (all be it normally one line at a time) he is either funny or intimidating.

He take bumps well (alright only two falls per match, but he doesn't go down slow)

I am seeing more than the intimidating bodyguard muscle guy there, beginning to hope for bigger things.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Nov 2016 12:09:52
He has improved a lot and is looking good these days, i'm just waiting for cena to move over to RAW and be the one to cefear Strowman. Then Strowman becomes a jobber.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Nov 2016 12:27:50
I'd read a lot of reports when he first debuted that he can offer a lot more than they were showing on TV. Lots of backstage buzz about what he did in the training centre and stuff like that. Heard comparisons to Vader and young Andre.
I think he is finally starting to show what he is capable of, hope he continues to develop and show what he can do. Could potentially take over Kane as the reliable big man for a good number of years.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Nov 2016 15:13:10
I would have liked it for him to be the one that took on and surprised Lesnar. Beating Lesnar would have done so much for Strowman but they gave it to Goldberg.

The same way that beating Taker at mania would sky rocket someone and they gave it to someone who didn't need it in Lesnar.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Nov 2016 15:40:37
I'd still like to see him use the Torture Rack, but I hope they at least keep the Running (Spiraling) Powerslam as a finisher. It's way better than anything they've had him use in the past.

I think 2017 will definitely be a do or die year for him, in terms of being a serious contender. He's starting to grow on me, so hopefully the projection I had of him having a Khali like career, becomes less of a ceiling and more of a floor.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Nov 2016 16:12:13
He certainly looks quick, they've done a good job f showing off his speed with the running avalanche.

That drop kick is pretty ropy though.

A Vader Bomb would be a great finish for him.

I like he rack as well, but there is no escape from it, meaning someone has to give up every time or it becomes as daft as say the wall of Jericho as a finish.

Happily see win for a year on the trot before Cena or Roman powers out of the torture rack despite having nothing to push against.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Nov 2016 18:06:00
Yeah I've been really surprised with how quickly Strowman has progressed. He's really quick for his size and he's getting much better when he does talk. As you say, it always looks violent when he's hitting people and knocking then down. As others have said, the only thing I'd like to see him add is a few more Power moves. Torture rack, Power Bomb etc (I think he'd have to hold back a bit though, lol) I do like his running power slam though. Never thought I'd see us all on here praising him but he's obviously worked hard and is getting much better at a far quicker rate than I expected.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Nov 2016 18:41:36
He's a good big man a lot of potential he must have to hold back on moves though when he threw styles over the ropes at ss it looked like it could legitimatly hurt styles it was a fearsome moment.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Nov 2016 20:24:40
Strowman is doing well at the moment. He looks and acts the part.
But I think we all know how it will end for him.
After having destroyed everyone, enter Reigns. WWE show all sorts of footage like Hogan/ Andre and Cena/ Show in yet another attempt to boost reigns with the fans. Cole goes on and on about the Big Dog and lies about his popularity with the fans. After having taken a beating, a couple of superman punches followed by a spear and Super Reigns wins again. Crowd boo him out of the arena.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Nov 2016 15:36:56
COYS, you forgot about the other commentators all trying to say in a roundabout way, that it's all the foreigners that aren't cheering him. (Despite only being able to get about a 50/ 50 reaction in the markiest U. S. cities. )

"IT'S BIZZARO WORLD, MAGGLE! "

27 Nov 2016 16:16:04
Too true Jabbles. It was all Toronto's fault. Apparently.

How can New day still be face they cheat to win lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Nov 2016 20:14:22
Ah, but RKO, they do it in a cheeky, scampish way.
Personally, I much preferred them as heels.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Nov 2016 20:26:59
Nothing against them. But there not my cup of tea. The Scottish promo the other week was there best work in a while. Sooner they get the titles on gallows and Anderson the better imo.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Nov 2016 23:08:02
They'll keep the titles at least until Roadblock 2, to break the record. Then it becomes a question of if they have anymore milestones they want to give them. 500 days, 2 years, etc.

My guess is they stay dickish faces until they feud with Enzo and Cass again. Then maybe they'll go full Gollum.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Nov 2016 11:15:18
I like the New Day but once they've broken the record I'm sure they will either lose the titles to the Club (which will set up Enzo and Cass v Club or a triple threat at WM) or they might turn full heel again and just face Enzo and Cass themselves.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Nov 2016 11:50:56
I like the New Day, I would be happy to see them go through to Mania, and lose the titles in a way that makes them matter.

I'd personally like to see the Tag Team be Kofi and Xavier more often and have Big E take a run at the US Title.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Nov 2016 14:47:23
After Watching Survivor series, Raw and guessing on what may happen on Smackdown i'm am leaning towards the idea that we will see a Baron Corbin and Sami Zayn trade very soon. It would be great news for Zayn. What do you guys think?

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Nov 2016 20:24:29
I would prefer to see Corbin stay on Smackdown, but give him a proper run. They have been selling him as the lone wolf. Let him do his thing as the loner who does not respect anyone and doesn't care who he hurts or upsets. A bit like an anti-Sting. Corbin has so much untapped potential and he has already pissed off Shane and Bryan.
As for Zayn, I really do not see what he brings to the party. I don't like his entrance music, his style and his look (though I can see why others might) . It is such an old plot line, to be the man who never gives up. It just doesn't work with Zayn for me. At best he is a mid-card attraction.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Nov 2016 23:00:25
Zayn is awesome in the ring up there with the best but he's too toned down in wwe it's a shame he could have been a real star. His 2 outta 3 falls match with Cesaro a a few years back was immense and his matches on the independent scene. His match with nakamura speaks for itself.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Nov 2016 01:01:51
I'd do Ziggler, American Alpha, Usos, Apollo Crews, Kalisto, and Eva Marie for Cesaro, Sheamus, Zayn, Bo Dallas, Golden Truth, Shining Stars, Titus O'Neil, Mark Henry, and Dana Brooke.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Nov 2016 11:54:39
Corbin needs to stay on Smackdown, but Zayne is just being treated as a jobber to the stars on Raw, you w is going to lose before he starts.

I can actually live with him losing as long as its over 20 minutes and he looks well beaten by the end. He can give most guys on roster their best match.

Then it means more when he does win won.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Nov 2016 21:14:58
Surely Vince has got to put a halt Oan reigns's push now after nearly breaking shanes jaw lol

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Nov 2016 10:01:01
Not judging by RAW.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Nov 2016 20:28:07
Same old sh*t. Severe booing by the crowd I noticed.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Nov 2016 11:56:20
Why they don't turn Roman I don't know, he needs to be edgy, can't do it face.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Nov 2016 18:26:12
It's just Vince not admitting defeat. He's absolutely murder as a face.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Nov 2016 10:34:04
I don't know if its modern WWE using the "We are doing things right because people boo him and chant he sucks, nobody is chanting for Cesaro or Ziggler, they like them but not enough to cheer, at least they hate Roman enough to boo"

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Nov 2016 17:42:32
Great ppv!

Glad to see Lesnar lose, was getting a but boring!

Glad smackdown won but would have loved to have seen AJ Styles win the match, don't like him being a heel anymore, he's an amazing face!

The club back stage with Ellsworth was LOL!

Also would have expected to see Taker.

Agree1 Disagree1

21 Nov 2016 18:46:21
I hated everything about Goldberg vs Lesnar, and they found a way to make it worse by making sure no one benefits from Taker's streak.

I didn't care for the finishes in the title matches, but I'll wait to see what happens this week to see if it leads to a trade or something. Anything but another round of Perkins vs Kendrick and Ziggler vs Miz.

I really enjoyed the SvS matches though. Not a lot of spectacular action, but I thought they did a good storytelling job. I was very happy to see Bayley, Bray and Cesaro getting the wins, and I can't wait to see how the next couple of weeks playout for Smackdown.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Nov 2016 20:08:37
Goldberg/ Lesnar. WTF.
Cannot understand this at all. Lesnar has been built up as the Beast then gets squashed in less time than it took Goldberg to come to the ring.
I suspect this is all down to Vince and he has bolloxed it again.
Mind you, I did enjoy the main survivor series match.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Nov 2016 21:05:22
Goldberg was supposedly injured, so that appears to be why they did the quick match. The injury must not be too bad though, since it's already starting to look like he'll be in the Rumble match. Whatever the reason, it was still horrible booking.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Nov 2016 21:16:19
It was stupid to have a short match like that but it's good to see lesner being shown as human for a change.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Nov 2016 21:47:46
Enjoyed all the elimination matches. The men's 5 v 5 being the best. Hopefully finally cements creative getting behind The Wyatt Family.
As for Lesnar v Goldberg, horrible booking. Build up Lesnar as a beast a man who does the impossible by ending the streak. The perfect rub to an up and comer to cement them as a legend, be the man to beat the man who ended the streak. No let's give it to 50 year old guy who's gassed before the match starts in under 3 minutes.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Nov 2016 10:16:29
I think the way Goldberg won the match was the best way of him to get the win and to keep both mens reputations in tact. Having Brock losing from 2 spears and a jackhammer before he gets going was plausible, considering that's how Goldberg made his name in WCW, quick and explosive. This is how WCW used him and got him so over. To have Brock recover from 2 spears and a Jackhammer would have been a waste of time hiring Goldberg and putting him over, which to be fair the crowd love Big Bill. Vince is all about making money, And having Goldberg so over with the crowd is good for business and I don't think he would have signed him just to make Brock look invincible. Sting came down at a survivor series and dealt with HHH with 1 Death Drop. HHH got his win at the next Mania event.

Agree1 Disagree0

23 Nov 2016 14:16:09
I'm just glad they didn't bury Cena, Ambrose, Randy, HHH, Reigns, and the Undertakers streak for nothing.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Nov 2016 08:31:31
What do people think will happen tonight I think nakamura will get called up for smackdown

21 Nov 2016 19:00:38
Steph and Foley kill a half hour gloat about technically being the victorious brand.

Reigns loses the U. S. title in a battle royal or some other multiman match.

Sasha, Sami, Cesaro, and others continue to wish they were on Smackdown.

Also, maybe a debut or more?

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Nov 2016 10:03:04
I think Smackdown could do with the extra big name but judging by how much WWE seem to prefer RAW than smackdown I can see him on there.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Nov 2016 14:17:08
I think Joe and Nakamurua will be in the Rumble.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Nov 2016 21:09:51
Anybody know wot time nxt starts at in the uk

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Nov 2016 22:34:17
OK NXT fans let's call it. Who will win and why:

Roode Vs Dillenger

Asuka Vs Mickie James

Revival Vs DIY

A of P Vs TM61

Joe Vs Nakamura

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Nov 2016 22:55:39
I'm thinking Roode he's just glorious and it sets him up for the nxt title.
Asuka, makes sense
I'm thinking DIY, as much as I love the revival my gut says diy also I think revival are due a call up
Agents of Pain to cement them as the monster heels nxt needs
Nakamura, Joe will get called up soon.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Nov 2016 08:53:02
I'm going with Roode as I think Dillinger is going to get called up and it just pushes Roode on.

Asuka, don't see the point of bringing back Mickie James

DIY, I like the Revival too, but they need to be called up, I hope to Smackdown

TM61 against the odds they beat Authors of Pain, just like they did against Sanity

Nakamura. This one was tough for me, as whoever doesn't win is moving up. I just think Joe deserves his shot on the main roster and I can't wait for it.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Nov 2016 09:48:26
To my shame I haven't seen NXT since before Eric Young remerged with his sable.

I'm trying to skim up to date for the Takeover show.

16 Nov 2016 20:43:13
Tom Phillips on commentary. Hopefully they stop this stupid tomspriacey making him bend his knees during interviews and keep him behind the desk at ringside

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Nov 2016 13:50:49
Tall wrestling announcers are lucky to have a job at all.

Like Refs, its a job for guys that are 5'7.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Nov 2016 14:52:31
They should have Michael Cole just do stuff like the weekly sit down interview and have Phillips do RAW.

Cole has been a commentator on RAW and/ or SD for most of the last 20 years, and I've been sick of his voice for longer than I can remember.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Nov 2016 16:17:06
I'd make a brilliant backstage interviewer. I'm a right short arse! Lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Nov 2016 16:20:14
That's not a bad shout about Cole and Tom Philips, Jables. Cole isn't very good on commentary but his sit down interviews are pretty good. I do like KO and Jericho when they mock Phillips backstage though, so I would miss that. Having said that, KO would be absolutely merciless to Cole backstage so that could be even better, lol.

18 Nov 2016 09:52:58
I think you'd be surprised Gator.

He is well past his sell by date, but he does a good corporate job, takes you to the breaks at the right time, endorses the products, relays the messages.

Give me someone with some passion shouting about how outraged they are by a heels antics over that any day.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Nov 2016 20:34:34
Bessex has got it completely right about Cole. He follows the corporate line completely. Anybody else having to go on and on about 'The Big Dog' night after night like he does would have topped themselves by now.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Nov 2016 17:26:50
Cole started in 97' where he hosted syndicated shows, did backstage interviews, and was a part-time/ occasional commentator. He has been commentating RAW and/ or Smackdown since Smackdown started in 99'.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Nov 2016 18:55:29
Random Scenario for taker.

Team Smackdown lose. They totally implode.

Taker, having warned them he will come for them if they lose, picks them off 1 by 1 at each months PPV. The last remaining man is AJ who still has the belt. Taker wins at Wrestlemania against AJ and then retires straight after the match. Leaves the belt in the ring and walks away. Stops at top of the ramp, raises his fist and leaves.

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Nov 2016 20:37:41
A called aj vs taker earlier after watching smack down.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Nov 2016 23:13:33
I could see them having a match before Mania, but not at Mania. I'd also be surprised if AJ retains at TLC, let alone makes it to Mania as champ.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Nov 2016 13:53:16
I don't think the Undertaker ever need to retire officially.

I think I'll happily have him vanish, then if he re-emerges after 10 years the world will lose its poop.

He doesn't need to wrestle, his presence is enough.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Nov 2016 21:16:16
OK tonight we dust off the old trenchcoat, pay off the pyro guys and invite the Phenom back to SD.

Who should he feud with for the WM spot?

Sting, Strowman, Cena or Orton. Or someone else?

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Nov 2016 21:52:26
I think it will be Cena. I really hope this will lead to a Cena turn.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Nov 2016 10:03:43
I have a feeling styles will cost smack down the match at ss and it will lead to a wm match with taker. He's about one of the only few who could pull taker threw a awesome match these days and actually deserves the match.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Nov 2016 15:44:57
I really hope it isn't Cena. I just don't think there styles would match and it wouldn't help Cena who already gets booed enough without facing a man like Taker. I would like to see Taker put Bray and the family over as the new faces of fear. Let Bray finally take that step up the main event picture. Maybe Taker and Kane vs Wyatt and Harper.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Nov 2016 15:45:22
Also forgot to mention i'd like to see The Demon VS The Phemon. Balor Vs Taker.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Nov 2016 16:06:02
If he's retiring.
Who I want: Wyatt or Ambrose.
Who It'll be: Orton.

If he's continuing on.
Who I want: Ambrose, Cena, Orton, Styles, Wyatt - Elimination Chamber.
Who It'll be: Cena.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Nov 2016 16:50:36
I was thinking the other day that Jericho is probably approaching being able to legitimately say he is the greatest or certainly one of them.

Then I think of guys with the longevity and career that can rival his, HBK, HHH, Kane, and Flair. They all had epic Wrestlemania matches with the Deadman.

Jericho deserves his chance to put on a spectacle with the Phenom.

I also think they would do a ruddy good job.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Nov 2016 23:03:04
wow - none wants to go for Sting. OK a dream match maybe 20 yrs ago but Sting dropped in his Legends with JBL interview that he put off neck surgery so he could have one last match. JBL prodded about him feeling Sting wanted Taker. It really is the last year that this could even remotely happen.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Nov 2016 13:55:57
Sting has waited too long for me.

Little interest in seeing him fight anyone who won't fly about for him.

Sting won't have the bumps in him.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Nov 2016 15:08:26
If Taker continues on after Mania, I could see them doing a brand specific ppv with a WCW name, and having the Sting vs Undertaker match there.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Nov 2016 09:54:27
I'd absolutely like to see Taker's final year be a tour of PPV's giving a dozen guys a chance to work with the legend.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Nov 2016 16:55:52
I only ever read what happens in RAW now as I can't even be bothered watching it at the minute so my opinion may be slighlty askew. but what's with them sticking three single competitors over the New day, tag teams are meant to be cohesive and should always have the edge over teams chucked together.

As I said as I don't watch it maybe it was done in a way that didn't effect the new day, but it just seemed like dodgy RAW booking again.

Agree0 Disagree1

15 Nov 2016 19:59:21
The best part of raw this week was Jericho putting styles "soccer mum" haircut on the list. Asking what the hell James ellsworth was made me Chuckle as we.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Nov 2016 20:06:14
Yeah I am pretty much the same as you. At three hours long and with so much filler its hard to watch anymore. That said New day are so over right now and some of the greatest tag teams ever created have been two guys 'thrown together' because creative didn't have anything for them as singles:

Beer Money, New Age Outlaws, APA.

Interesting fact: Almost all the first teams to hold the first tag team titles in WWF from 1971-79 were bundled together singles guys including the first ever champs : Luke Graham and Tarzan Tyler.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Nov 2016 16:52:41
Didn't some other random pairing going over Shemaus and Cesaro.

Owens and Roman perhaps?

I truly hate it when a group of singles go over a stable or tag team.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Nov 2016 13:06:55
Anybody else think it was odd that HHH dropped Rollins allowing Owens to win the title, but hasn't been heard from since?

I'm sure they are lining up Rollins vs HHH for Mania, but you'd expect some more interaction on why HHH did it?

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Nov 2016 15:36:51
Im pretty sure as you said this will be a mania match too. They did the same thing with Sting and Triple H too where months went past before we saw him again. Maybe HHH eliminates Rollins from the rumble or costs him the belt again.

One side note I would like to see a match with the stipulation of the loser can no longer use the pedigree. Have triple H win dirty and give Seth a better finisher. It doesn't suit him at all.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Nov 2016 16:59:20
There hasn't been any progression in the storyline since what? Around Clash of Champions. Not to mention that whole storyline we did get, was Rollins "knowing" Steph had something to do with it. Yet Steph just puts Rollins on the SvS team, and Rollins was happy to do it.

The way storylines in general are going, the Rumble match is going to have like a dozen people come out. Each screwing over a different person, to set up Mania matches.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Nov 2016 20:16:56
I think it was creative working two different angles.

The first was to put the strap on Owens starting the brand split and the new moniker "New era". He is well respected and has never held the title before. It's an extension of what they wanted with Finn. Brand split brand new champ and Rollins would have that "same old" feel.

But they needed to do it in a way to not weaken Rollins who they are definitely grooming as the next franchise player to step into Cena's shoes. What better way than a feud with Hunter. But they have found that the long book is great for drawing. Think Rock and Cena, Goldberg and Brock, Taker and whoever he meets. They feel the long book really makes the feud special.

My feel is there will be a HHH sighting at Rumble. Probably a Bully Ray as well.

It looks like we will have HHH/ Rollins, Shane Mcmahon/ Lesnar and Taker/ Cena at Mania. None of these would have me on the edge of my seat so it is essential that they have a couple of great matches on the card.
I hate to say it, but I can see Reigns beating Owens which would go down like a lead balloon.
I would love to see Styles/ Nakamura that could tear the house down.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Nov 2016 09:52:18
I can see WWE going with something like that For WM. The only one of those I want to see at WM is Cena v Taker. HHH V Rollins should be good but I'd prefer that to take place before WM to get Rollins in the title picture. Taker v Shane was stupid, Taker v Lesnar is just totally pointless, and would be terrible.

Smackdown need to understand that their management team don't need to be wrestling or on screen too much. Stay in the background, and keep things running smoothly. Putting Shane into matches is just daft IMO.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Nov 2016 16:57:35
It hits me that Owens is as over as Rollins, and HHH is way over, so screwing Rollins hasn't made anyone more heelish.

If they wanted to make HHH the heel in a match with Rollins perhaps he should have cheated for Reigns to become champ.

Like you say Seth was building some sort of feud against Steph involving Mick and HHH, then it just vanished.

This is not the way to go if you want HHH to get boo'd, the crowd will pop when his music drops next 100%.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Nov 2016 23:05:47
Its weird that with all their experience they think the fans will boo a legend who only wrestles once a year. No matter who it is that match is special and the fans will always pop.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Nov 2016 18:16:24
I know it won't happan, but with the UFC-WWE talk that may be about to start, I would love it if UFC and McGregor ended up doing something to piss off Vince and WWE.

WWE vs UFC would be a much more sustainable competition than WWE vs any other wrestling promotion. Plus the WWE universe would benefit greatly with Vince changing his mindset from "FU I'm going to get Reigns over. " to "Whatever it takes to crush those F-in uFc-er's souls. "

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Nov 2016 19:42:03
A really don't see the competition. To be honest it's actors vs real fighter's.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Nov 2016 20:24:53
Just isn't going to happen. Mind you, McGregor could piss anyone off
these days. I can easily see some sort of appearance from him and probably next year. Not as a wrestler, but maybe in a one-off.

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Nov 2016 12:26:09
If he ever wanted to work in WWE he could, but you couldn't work WWE vs UFC without somebody getting their face smashed.

Mreggor is clearly a wrestling fan on some level, as he plays up a heel role at every opportunity.

I don't believe he is as abrasive as he makes out.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Nov 2016 11:07:58
So. Hogan & WWE are in talks about welcoming him back into the fold. Why? Does anyone actually want to see this racist, egocentric has-been again? Surely they can't be that desperate.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Nov 2016 13:14:59
Nothing against his views or opinions he's welcome to have his own. In a wrestling pov though he's Brutal never liked him never will so overrated its unreal I pray he doesn't return. wwe Disney need him.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Nov 2016 13:29:08
by all accounts it was nothing more than a rumour that brooke started. Hogan has denied all knowledge.

Linda McMahon is being considered for one of Trump's cabinet positions. So we might get Hogan and Trump at Mania.

Prepare for the apocalypse!

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Nov 2016 12:28:36
Hogan belongs in the WWE. End of.

I don't want to see him on Raw, but its ridiculous that he wouldn't be invited to say the HOF ceremony, or included on WWE games.

He makes the odd gaff, but he was the face of the company for 20 years, you can't sweep him under the rug.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Nov 2016 20:24:17
Disagree completely Bessex. For 20 years he was allowed to do exactly what he wanted to do. He was paid an astonishing amount of money. He has never been the greatest wrestler, but I will give you he had great ring presence.
But what his racist tirade is unforgivable and to describe is an an odd gaff is the same as the Trump excuse of locker room banter.
I for one would be happy never to see Hogan on our screens again.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Nov 2016 17:09:27
We will have to disagree then.

People have opinions they keep to themselves, and I don't think he would have said what he was thinking if he knew he was being filmed.

Dangerous situation when people are having their life's work burned to the ground because of something they sad in a dark bedroom.

I say things to the wife that could get me in trouble every day, I'm sure everybody does.

His ability as a wrestler or how much money he made shouldn't come in to it. If they tried to bury Dino Bravo I'd say he deserves better.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Nov 2016 11:26:58
Now this may be a controversial one but here we go. I don't think NXT is being used right. For me NXT is supposed to be about building the next future stars of the WWE. However currently we have guys like Joe, Nakamura, Roode, Young and Aries who are all established stars who would thrive on the main roster. We also have Asuka dominating the women's division too. These established wrestlers are taking the place of the people who need to learn how to effectively perform in front of a crowd. I know it would reduce he quality of NXT somewhat but it would give them more chance to give more rookies a stage to prove themselves. I only say this because I have seen reports recently saying that Nakamura will stay down in NXT to be the main face and Asuka will stay down to be the main face of the women's roster. It just doesn't seem to me to be the best way to use NXT or Nakamura. The guy is at hi peak and mid 30s. He is a licence to print money. Get him on the main stage.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Nov 2016 14:25:10
I genuinely believe NXT needs to keep hold of stars in order to keep filling arenas.

The young learners need great pros to work with.

I'd like to see NXT more heavily involved in the draft, perhaps taking guys back down, as well as offering a few up.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Nov 2016 19:44:43
A great part of NXT's appeal is that it is separate and has it's own distinct character. It also comes across as a show that is Vince free.
I am sure Nakamura and the other top professionals are well compensated for their wrestling, but I am equally sure they would all like the chance to perform on the biggest stage of them all and of course that is the WWE proper.
The WWE are more concerned about TV audiences than arenas being full and creative positioning of cameras can make it seem that most arenas are sold out anyway.
Personally I would like to see some of the 'names' come to the main shows, but some will have to remain to help create the next stars.
I know this is a bit of fence sitting, but Nakamura, Joe and Roode really should be given the chance. Maybe they can be replaced by some of the fading stars such as Swagger who could then extend their own careers.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Nov 2016 02:11:35
I think it's too cluttered right now. I'm sure 205 will take the CWs away, but it's still going to be crowded. Joe and Roode definitely need to be moved to a main roster. Joe should get the call after SvS, and they'd be stupid not to debut Roode in the Rumble Match. If RAW gets the IC title, Dillinger should be put on RAW after SvS. Aries, Nakamura, Asuka, and Mickey James, if she is back to stay, should be brought up by the end of Mania week.

I agree on using fading stars. I think Curtis Axel could do a good job in a chief Morely type role as an assistant to Regal. With some of the hosses coming through, Mark Henry would be a great opponent/ mentor for them.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Nov 2016 12:33:44
There is a list as long as your arm of guys who (like Ryder) would benefit from going down to NXT, working decent programs and showing off their skills.

I only took notice of NXT because of Zayne vs Cesaro.

I don't see why top NXT stars can't have some interpromotional work to continue to build them.

I'd love to see Joe be the guy that beats Lesnar, but he doesn't need to leave NXT to do that. I could raise the profile of everyone that's ever beat him as well.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Nov 2016 20:22:25
Interesting to see everyones take on Joe.

He belongs on the main roster but I don't think we will see it. Simple answer: Trips books NXT and Vince Raw and SD. Whilst Trips has a vision to employ more WRESTLERS (Roddy Strong, Joe, Aries, Nakamura) Vince likes to make new stars.

Joe only has 5 years prime left in him and I just don't see Vince getting Joe's style.

Still he put the strap on Styles so maybe he's changing.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Nov 2016 17:10:50
I think Vince has to OK everything, but I'm sure he allows others to write more than he ever has.

*Roadblock 2 Electric Boogaloo (or End of the Line) will feature Owens vs Reigns and Jericho vs Rollins.

*Royal Rumble will be a 4 hour ppv.

*Sin Cara has been moved to Smackdown. It also appears the 4 man announce team with Tom Phillips is going to continue.

*NXT may be having a future event with a "Crash Cage" which would be based off an accessory for the WWE action figures.

*Pete Dunne and 6'11 420pd strongman Sean O'Hagan from Northern Ireland, were 2 of the notable WWE tryouts this week.

*There are several WWE Network shows in the works, one potentially with Heyman and JBL. There also may be a few less ppvs in 17'.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Nov 2016 14:26:48
I like Pete Dunne, even if the nickname "the Bruiserwieght" is awful.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Nov 2016 02:21:19
Just like Strowman looks like a super mutant version of Bray Wyatt. Sean O'Hagan looks like a super mutant version of Kevin Owens.

I also heard that Meng/ Haku's son made his wrestling debut recently. He's 6'8 280lbs. With his dad's notoriety he could be the scariest thing ever. A super mutant version of Samoa Joe.

Agree1 Disagree0

14 Nov 2016 11:37:32
I think they have already wrestling for a while. Camacho is one of Haku's sons as is Tama Tonga. Together they are IWGP tag team champions at the moment.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Nov 2016 11:01:36
So Shane replaces Baron Corbyn on Team SD?

I hope there is some clever story work woven in to this, involving things bigger than Survivors Series.

What possible benefit is there to adding Shane to the match over a guy learning his way I the midcard?

Assuming the injury is a work, even then it totally gives the finger to dozen or so guys.

What does it y for Kane, Apollo, The Miz, or even an old dog like Swagger that the middle aged business man that's only had one match in ten years and lost is considered a better representative?

Agree1 Disagree0

10 Nov 2016 11:28:31
Could not agree more Bessex. Why not give Crews a chance to boost his career? Why not have a monster like Kane or Harper on Team Blue?
Instead we have got someone who is not a wrestler but can jump off high things.
I really, really hope they don't have Shane being the first one to knock Strowman off his feet. If they do I may stop watching WWE for the foreseeable future.
Smackdown has sold itself as a new beginning. They have made a decent start, but this will knock them off course completely.

Shane has been brought into Team Smackdown for one reason, he will somehow finish up being in the ring with Lesnar. Maybe Lesnar comes out and f5's him again to give Raw the win or perhaps the opposite and Shane costs Lesnar his match as revenge for SummerSlam. Either way they will be in the same ring at the same time in order to advance us towards the inevitable Lesnar V Shane match.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Nov 2016 16:26:00
I'm torn because with Shane being in it, there's a chance that they put a lot more effort into the match, and it becomes something more reminiscent of the Attitude Era. At the same time, It's got every element for it to end up being almost as bad as the 15' Rumble match.

I get the sense that they'll have Lesnar vs Goldberg 3 at Mania, so they're either going to forget about Shane vs Lesnar or save it for SummerSlam.

A SvS match would be the perfect way to get Taker in a match before his possible retirement match at WM.

It's starting to really look like SD will end up with the CW division, so as long as that happens, I'll be happy.

Shane vs Lesnar seems even more ridiculous than Goldberg.

I mean who wants to see Lesnar beat up guys that other people beat up.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Nov 2016 02:30:31
I think anything with Shane and Lesnar should end up with Shane hand picking some one to finally take Lesnar down, but I try to never underestimate a McMahon's ego.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Nov 2016 20:26:15
Jables, it is impossible to underestimate a McMahon ego.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Nov 2016 21:12:56
IMO it only makes sense if he is used to elevate an up'n'comer. Maybe we will see Shane in trouble and Corbin makes the save leading into a Shane back Corbin Vs Stephanie back Stroman angle.

But I guess he is there just to build on a very ridiculous Lesner Feud.

See they are going to show Steve Austin's Broken Skull Challenge on Dave later this month?
Is there a wrestler not doing a reality show?

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Nov 2016 21:21:48
Reading this made me think that if WWE is dead set on bringing Hogan back, they should do it by having him do a season of Legends House. If they wanted to make it a really interesting season, have it be an all NWO season. Hogan, Hart, Nash, Hall, Waltman, Steiner, Bischoff, and Jarrett.

I watched that on my kodi stick the other month. good show BTW looks tough as f*ck.

Hearing him talk about it so much on the podcast I'll be interested to check it out.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Nov 2016 16:59:55
Edge confirmed to appear on smack down nxt week. Along with taker it could be a huge ratings boost for them

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Nov 2016 19:16:47
Awesome was gutted when he had to retire, he is one I would love to see for one more match but with his injuries I know it's unlikely!

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Nov 2016 20:02:08
He's the epitomy of living threw the attitude era as a mid carder and then reinventing himself as a top top superstar. Great wrestler great talker and all round one of the best of the last 15 years imo.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Nov 2016 20:55:23
Excellent. Love Edge. Also my favourite entrance music of a non Motorhead variety.

Agree1 Disagree0

08 Nov 2016 21:26:59
I'll be interested to see if any others are coming in. Maybe a surprise return of two?

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Nov 2016 14:05:27
I think it would be interesting to find out where people are from (country and city) which sports teams you support and who your current favourite wrestlers are. I'm guessing COYS is from North London, and Jables from Chicago (purely based on sports teams) IIRC Bessex is a Bristol City fan?

I'm from Birmingham, England
I support Birmingham City FC (Blues)
Current top 3: Owens, Rollins, AJ Styles.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Nov 2016 14:40:06
Falkirk, Scotland. I support Glasgow rangers, Have to go with styles, Owens and rollins as well mate. closely followed by nakamura down in nxt.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Nov 2016 15:16:33
Blackpool, England. Family support Liverpool, I myself was a Blackpool fan but not under that diabolic ownership (them who shall not be named) . For me it's Bray Wyatt, Kevin Owens and Seth Rollins.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Nov 2016 15:50:42
Mio, Michigan (About 3-4 hours away from Detroit, and 6-7 hours from Chicago. ) Chicago Cubs are my ride or die. I also follow/ support most of the Detroit and Chicago sports teams, and the University of Michigan's teams.

Fav. wrestlers, I'd have to go with 4 right now. Ambrose, Jericho, Owens, and Styles. Especially since SummerSlam, they have been far and away the most interesting and entertaining to me.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Nov 2016 16:56:59
Jericho is doing some of his best work for years right now an all time favourite of mine. He's close to the top of my list as well jables.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Nov 2016 18:34:28
I'm from East Kilbride, Scotland.
Top 4 for me.
Balor
Nakamura
Owens
Rollins.
But lovin jericho at the moment.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Nov 2016 19:10:04
Am from a small town called Flint in North Wales, big Manchester United fan but struggling to find answers to why I am at the minute

Owens and aj are a certain and an all time favourite randy orton for me no matter what his story lines he is working he is still one of the few realistic title contenders who could be thrown in at any point.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Nov 2016 19:11:49
I'm from Leeds support Liverpool and favourite wrestlers Ambrose, Styles, honourable mention to miz and Ziggler top work with their feud. Don't watch raw at the minute so can't really pick any of them.

Btw Jables massive win for the cubs, watching them in the World Series made me interested in baseball so decided to pick a team at random and gone with the diamondbacks. No idea if they are any good or not though maybe you can enlighten me.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Nov 2016 19:27:20
I'm from balloch, it's about 13 miles outside Glasgow , Celtic are the only team for me, favourite wrestlers are, aj styles, brock and ziggler.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Nov 2016 20:41:13
Kirkcaldy in Scotland fav team the 1 n only Glasgow rangers fav superstars are aj, Rollins and ziggler.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Nov 2016 20:53:48
Actually I am from East London but I now live in Romford in Essex.
Favourite wrestlers at the moment are Styles, Owens and like Lantern, I am really liking Jericho at the moment. I also have great hopes for
Corbin.
Favourites of all time are Rick Rude, Taker and Edge.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Nov 2016 21:49:31
Onceared, the Diamondbacks just went through coaching and front office changes after an under achieving season. Their pitching being the biggest culprit, There's plenty of talent though. If they can add a couple of good pieces, they have a shot at being strong contenders in a potentially tough NL West.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Nov 2016 22:17:48
Interesting stuff lads. There's a fair few from Scotland on here isn't there? Glasgow Crowd have been good so far on RAW (I watch it from Sky Plus) I'm really hoping one of the heels comes out in and England shirt to get booed out the stadium, lol.

I've never picked a Baseball or Basketball team but I like my NFL and go through phases of watching and not watching (I always watch the Super Bowl though) I randomly picked Green Bay Packers as a kid and have stuck with them ever since. I've got a Season Ticket at Blues (had one for about 25 years lol) they're the ones I really love and care about, I can still just about bring myself to watch England play football but the games don't matter to. me as much as Blues games do. I like my cricket but only really watch England Tests and the odd bit of one day or 20/ 20. I'll watch the six nations and Rugby world Cup but I couldn't watch club rugby or County cricket.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Nov 2016 06:08:54
From Glasgow, support the famous Glasgow Celtic. Right now I'd go with Ambrose, Rollins and Y2J.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Nov 2016 08:59:48
Barry town in wales, Arsenal fan. Local team is welsh division 1 watch them when I can.

Top 3. Seth rollins, Finn Balor and Baron Corbin!

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Nov 2016 10:47:29
I am from Bristol, and have always been a big Bristol City fan.

Its a thankless task.

Jericho is probably my current favourite, and I'd have to say Stone Cold was the man that kept me watching through the dodgy child to man phase of Wrestling fandom.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Nov 2016 11:03:13
Glasgow,

Glasgow rangers,

HHH, orton and probably rollins!

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Nov 2016 11:22:14

J10, I lived in Barry Island for a few years when I was a kid. I went to Colcott Primary school for a couple of years. Rated RKO, it's good to see another guy from the West Midlands on here.

monkeyman, small world! howd you find the colcot school? heard bad things haha! barry island is great tho!

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Nov 2016 00:16:08
I was really young at Colcott so I can't really remember it properly. From the little bits I can remember it was good. Like I said I was young when I lived there but I remember it being fun.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Nov 2016 00:17:51
Snowbaw, those cheese head hats are hilarious!

Apparently Jericho and Sin Cara got into it this weekend. If true, I'd have to imagine this is the final straw for the Chollo Undertaker. Since this will be his 2nd incident this year alone, he's not too far from 40, and WWE now has several masked Latin stars in the making.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Nov 2016 18:37:16
He seems like he is a bit of a badass who takes no sh*t lol fair play to him but it could be the end of the road.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Nov 2016 19:47:45
Apparently Sin Cara was making stupid noises on the coach and wouldn't shut up when asked. Jericho apparently asked him to shut up a bit more forcefully at which point Cara when apeshit and started throwing punches. There is some comment that Jericho bit Cara's finger before the 2 were separated.
Cara was thrown of the coach.
Grow up.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Nov 2016 10:14:32
Sin Cara just made the list!

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Nov 2016 16:58:17
Rumours are sin cara Is to attend anger management.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Nov 2016 22:19:18
Ooh, the return of Dr Shelby!
