Knew it was only a matter of time before bret hart weighed in on the rollins balor situation. Got to hand it to him he's not scared go give an opinion

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 13:53:27
He clearly has it in for rollins, and is obviously against joe because of the kidd injury.
No mention off the styles clash which has injured God knows how many people.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 14:21:23
He's starting to come across as old and bitter with a personal vendetta against Rollins. Bret has done enough in the business to say his opinion, but when it's a weekly dig at the same person, it's a little sad to see.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 19:53:12
Bret has been bitter for quite some time now, interrupted by occasional appearances when Vince throws him a bone.
Mind you it happens to all off us old gits. I remember the day .

Thought smackdown was brilliant this week. A lot of good stuff on the show beezdango and ascension now being booked as jokes was pretty good for a change. And what a match for the main event absolutely amazing performance by both and excited for styles vs ambrose. thoughts guys?

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Aug 2016 19:24:57
Smackdown has been improving week by week and has beaten raw every week bar the first imo. Matter of time before people start tuning in. It doesn't seem that Vince has much of a influence in it. Maybe that's the difference. And that talking smack. segment. best promo of the year.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 Aug 2016 23:58:54
I have a feeling that there's probably already more people than just Cesaro, that are wishing they would of been drafted to Smackdown.

If Reigns wins the title on monday, I'm taking a break from RAW until the cruiserweights debut. There's a lot of talent on RAW that I care about, but they haven't done much, if anything, to make me feel like they care about them. Conversely, SD has made me care more about almost every single person on their roster.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 19:51:20
I thought at the time that what Smackdown lost in numbers, they won in quality.
Styles is the standard bearer at the moment and Wyatt the most interesting.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Aug 2016 17:30:04
Why do the majority of 'face' tag teams always look so stupid when they enter the ring?
When American Alpha, The Hype Brothers and, as always, the Usos came on to the ramp for the Smackdown before last, they looked as if they were so chock full of uppers that the Wellness Policy must go into melt-down.
Screaming at the top of their voices, they looked like their initial movements are being controlled by a 5 year old with his first X-box joy stick.
Yes, I know they have to 'sell' how excited they are to be there, but it looks so false now to be laughable.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 00:52:48
It's mostly American Football's fault. From pee wee football to the pros, seemingly half of the players do the same thing when they run on to the field. Over the years, it's also permeated into other sports as well.

There used to usually be only one guy on a team that acted like Mojo, but over time it seems like more and more people think that's how everyone is supposed to act, when getting ready for a sport.

I'm fine with the Hype Bros doing it, because it's literally their gimmick. I just hope the SD crew continue their good work and helps AA and the Usos do something else.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 19:49:24
Cheers Jables mate. Always good to have a bit of history to it. Agree with you, the Hype Bros have it in their name, but the others? Give it a rest.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Aug 2016 12:45:18
Wow the miz bit on talking smack was certainly interesting.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Aug 2016 17:07:55
That was class. Great segment miz has done a decent job as champ no doubt about it and I am not a fan of his.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Aug 2016 17:33:25
The Miz is always under-rated. He is a solid worker who has improved beyond recognition from his introduction all those years ago. His mic work is good and he will always be a safe pair of hands to hold one of the lesser titles or build up an opponent.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 01:36:41
The way Smackdown has been going lately. By the end of the year, the most debated question is going to be. 'Who had the best promo of the year? '

Agree0 Disagree0

 

 

24 Aug 2016 15:37:13
The Miz on talking Smack last night - WOW!

Agree1 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 22:39:39
So if it was definitley a work how much credit does Randy Orton deserve for letting himself be split open with a genuine elbow from Brock Lesnar. Randys one of the biggest stars in the WWE and arguably ever so he could've easily went against that decision. I know he's had his problems but have to respect him for going through with it. Can't help but think if it was the other way around Brick would have been as willing.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Aug 2016 10:41:28
You need to remember that they are genuine friends out side the ring as well and would have both agreed this made them both look good Orton got the rko's and kicked out the f5 so he still looks strong despite getting beating.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Aug 2016 14:01:34
ortons my favourite, him and hhh rivalries are top notch! h3 looked great but lesnar looks like he could beat anyone.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Aug 2016 16:05:11
Really it's funny how the same match can be viewed so differently by two people , I have watched it twice and thought brock came across as an unbeatable monster 👾 and randy came over as cannon fodder , who should not be sharing a ring with a guy on that level. I like randy Orton but he came away from that match looking weaker than any opposition brock has faced in the last two years.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 19:17:45
It now looks more likely that the lesnar/ orton match was a work, and it's played out perfectly in my opinion.

Thinking of ideas, and correct me if I'm wrong (had a few too many) but did orton go for the punt kick at SS? Not seen that in a long time. Anyway, I think it would've worked a lot better if they had lesnar appear on raw, showing off etc and orton attack him and then punt kick him and putting lesnar out of action for a few months. He's disappearing anyway so why not give him a reason?

Then when he does appear the story line writes itself, maybe leads to a Wrestlemania match?

I know orton couldn't exactly go on a mad rampage with 10 staples in his head but you get my drift.

Thoughts?

Agree1 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 20:44:35
You could tell it was worked because lesnar was stopping short of punching him when he was pummelling Orton and when he was hitting him he was hitting his hands was brilliant though.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 21:02:19
A hope they try something differant or lesner comes back and has a actual feud with someone. He's a beast and the biggest star they have just now but the suplex suplex f5 and the mma styles fights r getting a little boring for me. Orton should have just won a at summerslam and punted him after words. It would have set orton up nicely for a feud with styles if styles where to take the belt from dean.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 21:41:56
It was a total work, read the details about the Jericho, Lesnar confrontation. Vince himself told Jericho the whole match was a work and Orton reassured him it went down as it was supposed to. It was all done to give them a kayfabe reason to write Lesnar off tv, whilst also maybe trying to prove a point post McGregor comments.
I thought it was a great finish and is hopefully a sign we are mo ing away from the PG era, the only surprise to me was just how many people thought it was a shoot.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 22:48:24
Orton did go for a punt, and Lesnar reversed it into the F5 that got a 2 count. Then Brock switched to smash mode that lead to the TKO.

I guess neither is expected to be around any time soon. Brock of course being Brock, and Orton will supposedly be kept off for awhile to either sell the injury and/ or because of actual injuries?

I just hope they don't do Brock vs Shane. If they're going to have anyone try to stop Lesnar's brutality. It should be Ambrose. Not the "Lunatic Fringe" version of Ambrose. I'm talking about the Jon F'n Moxley version of Ambrose. Like Foley against Taker in HiaC, Ambrose doesn't even need to win, he just needs the opportunity to show the casuals the type of punishment he can endure.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 23:15:06
Need to disagree haggis having Orton beat him would have been a mistake but the punt could still be a good idea.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Aug 2016 07:22:34
It isn't the best booking to be fair gordo but this idea lesner is invincible is silly. He is the top dog ofcourse but Taker cena and hhh have all beat him since he's been back I belive? Reigns was beating his ass till rollins intervined And orton is at good and as big a star as them imo and with lesner only being part time and orton going to be around for the next while in a big feud no doubt it would have bn good to see him get the win even if it wasnt clean.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Aug 2016 13:22:03
Be fair if Brock hit Orton that many times it would have looked worse than that hole on his head.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 09:21:56
such a shame about balor, wish him a speedy recovery.

who would your choice be for the title guys? for me it should be owens even though he's a heel it will go down well with the fans.
surely wwe wouldn't dare put the title on reigns would they?

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 09:44:11
Reigns has slowly become more popular with the fans. He is appearing more natural on the mic and doesn't appear up his own arse so much.
I think it is too early for a full rehab with him winning the title though.
I suspect they will go for the safe ooption and give it back to Rollins.

Agree0 Disagree1

23 Aug 2016 23:20:00
I'm hoping KO wins, and Rollins gives Reigns an Injurybomb.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Aug 2016 07:25:16
Can't see rollins being aloud to use that again to be fair that's sting and now balor. His kerb stomp was took away for much much less. Hwl have no moves left at this rate. He's going to have to replace it with hhh's spine buster or high knee strike.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 07:22:53
Jericho and lesner reportedly got into a fight backstage at summerslam

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 09:44:45
And Jericho calls everyone else stupid.

Agree1 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 17:40:51
Haha. Jericho must have some serious b*lls or the hart dungeon training had turned him into a hardman.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Aug 2016 20:58:49
I wonder if in the Brock match randy was due to blade hence why Brock continued to attack.

Whoever beats him is going to get one hell of a push from it!

Didn't care about the rest although cena vs styles was epic. The running order was odd though having reigns after the title match was not right especially for a no contest. Was expecting rusev to win but expect reigns to pick up the title on raw or even the first raw Ppv.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Aug 2016 22:51:02
I figured Orton tried to do a small blade job that would of produced a little bit of blood, and Brock ether hit the cut or hit him while he was trying to blade.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Aug 2016 17:39:00
Have just read that there are concerns about Balor after Summerslam. Apparently his arm was in a sling after the match and there are fears that he may need surgery.
Dare say we will find out tonight.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Aug 2016 18:51:09
Would be a horrific thing if he had to have surgery. So soon after landing the big 1.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Aug 2016 19:45:40
He was on one of those morning shows in America and he had no sling on and was moving about fine. What were your guys thoughts on that ending though?

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Aug 2016 20:01:44
It was differant it adds to lesners mistique and how he is so differant to other wrestlers. I have no problem with it. Made it look and feel a lot more real.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Aug 2016 20:10:03
El genirico I thought it was a good finish sets up future matches for brock Orton Shane and Goldberg. plus it makes brock look the absolute beast he is.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Aug 2016 20:43:03
Goldberg just had knee surgery, so if anything happens with him it's going to be awhile.

I would feel better with the finish of SS, if I had more faith something good/ great may come from it. To me, it still just seems like it's a combination of Brock wanting to Brock and Vince wanting to have something in his back pocket for one of his pets. I pray I'm wrong, and it leads to something great for someone like Cesaro or Owens. I just have the fear, it will all be for someone like Reigns.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Aug 2016 21:44:47
Whether or not it's a work, it has got everyone talking and admittedly a lot of people will tune into raw tonight.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Aug 2016 15:43:27
overall I thought summerslam was a good ppv.

have to admit when cena hit that aa off the top rope I thought it was lights out for aj but am glad he got the win and was no doubt the best match of the night

don;t know if many would agree but I actually thought the ambrose/ziggler match was possibly the poorest of the night, for some reason I couldn't get into the match and don't think the fans in the arena did either. the atmosphere seemed very flat during the match.

the womens championship match would have been much better imo but clearly banks was struggling

loved the ending to the orton/lesnar match and I think that won't be the only match we see between them 2 this year.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Aug 2016 16:46:57
Assuming every part of it was scripted. It seens to be setting upfor a rematch. Orton will probably claim that he wasn't beaten he ref took the decision for him. Probably a rematch at SS where hopefully Orton is more at an equal footing. Wouldn't want him getting buried.

Alternately they go in the McMahon direction with either Shane or Shane bringing inone someone perhaps Goldberg.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Aug 2016 12:20:27
What's was peoples thoughts on summerslam vest match for me believe it or not was the cena match I give it a 6 out of 10.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Aug 2016 14:13:13
Was a good ppv some people are moaning about the last match but to me that was a good finish was brutal and that's what you needed from this match. Cena vs styles stole the show rusev vs reigns was weird booking imo. overall 7 out of 10 for me hopefully we get something good tonight to add to sumer slam.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Aug 2016 14:56:04
Cena vs Styles was match of the night, great to see them actually show faith in Styles and give him the clean win. I was worried he would the usually we didn't make him a star treatment.
I thought it was obvious Balor would win as soon as they introduced the demon character so quicklypersonally it's too son for him I think, hence the subdued reaction to his win. It would have been better to have him form Balor Club to win but never mind.
Ziggler v Ambrose was poor, it looked like Ambrose was taking it half arsed. Made Ziggler look weak after some strong build up.
I really enjoyed the main event and thought the finish was genius. It's accomplished 2 things, firstly it makes Brook look even more vicious and uncontrollable and second, everyone is talking about whether it was planned or if Brook decided to shoot on Randy. Of course it was planned, Randy and Brook are close out of the ring by all accounts so why would he shoot on him, also if Brook did shoot then surely they would send more than a few refs and Shane to stop him. It was designed to get people talking and it has, it might also have been done in response to McGregors comments. They seem to be slowly moving away from PG stuff, allowing profanity in promo's and trying to make some of the matches appear more shoot in style. I hope they continue to go in this direction.

Agree1 Disagree0

22 Aug 2016 15:36:36
On the whole I thought Summerslam was very average, saved by a spectacular Styles/ Cena match.
Ambrose/ Ziggler just didn't work, nor did Balor/ Rollins and the tag team title match was just dreadful. Miz did what he always does to a good but not spectacular standard and even though they won, Jeri-Ko is already looking stale.
The women's matches were nothing to shout about and the botched move when Banks landed on her neck just about summed up the whole show.
The show was so long, and while I enjoyed watching the Beast become the Monster, it was strange match to finish with considering the number of actual title matches there were.
They can do an awful lot better than this, even though as I have said, I loved the Style/ Cena match.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Aug 2016 22:11:57
I didn't think any of the matches at SS were bad, and their weren't any horrible booking decisions. Except for maybe Rusev/ Reigns. It just didn't have a lot of exciting moments outside Cena/ Styles.

Ambrose and Ziggler have had good matches with each other before. I think the problem with their match last night is, it was over produced. Very little, after the first couple of minutes, felt like it was either of their ideas. It wasn't a lack of desire, it was a lack of freedom.

If any of these big time ppvs are ever going to live up to the hype. People from the top of the card to the bottom, need to quit being micro managed. Stop trying to feed everyone vanilla ice cream with a sample of chocolate, and give us all 31 flavors we know you're capable of giving us.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Aug 2016 19:31:34
Predictions for tonight
Rollins to beat balor
Lesnar to beat Orton
Aj to beat cena
The club to be the new day
Rusev to beat reigns
Ambrose to beat ziggler
Enzo and cas to beat jer-ko
Miz to beat crew's.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Aug 2016 21:41:49
I agree Gordo bar the 2 Main title matches ambrose will retain and I think they will go with Balor although a want a Rollins win.

I particularly liked the 'I take s***s bigger than that kid.
I really hope they are finally letting the Beast off the leash.

20 Aug 2016 23:10:02
Superb nice to hear lesnar speak and what seems straight from him not scripted he's clearly feed up with people saying wrestling is fake and easy.

There are a couple of matches that have been added to the SummerSlam pre-show.

Sami Zayn and Neville vs the Dudleys

American Alphas, Hype Bros, and the Usos vs Ascension, Breezango, and VadeVillians.

As of right now it'll be these 2 matches and Cesaro vs Sheamus on the pre-show.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Aug 2016 11:23:25
Well, nothing there to float your boat. This is going to be a very long show.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Aug 2016 16:19:50
The pre-show will be 2 hours and the main show is expected to be over 4.

I'm excited for these next 5 days, but I already know I'm going to be exhausted by thursday. TakeOver tonight, is expected to be 2 and a half hours or so. Meaning there could be over 9 hours, just today and tomorrow. Then after that there's the 7 hours of RAW, SD, NXT, and CWC.

Agree1 Disagree0

There's a compilation of the #GloriousBomb videos on Youtube. It's only like 3 minutes long. Seeing them back to back, makes it even more hilarious.

Between the match Gargano and Ciampa had in the CWC, their recent work in NXT, and the #GloriousBombs. I'd have to imagine their stock is rising within WWE.

Alright. I'll go first. Summerslam predictions.
Cesaro/Sheamus. Don't really care so I will say Cesaro just to make the crowd happy.
JericOwens/Cass & Enzo. Shoe in for Cass & Enzo and maybe an end to the Jericho/Owens bromance.
New Day/the Club (still hate that name). Going against the grain here and will say The Club - they need it an awful lot more.
Carmella, Lynch, Naomi/Natalya, Eva Marie, Bliss. Again really don't care but I expect Eva Marie to either bail again or be a no show so Lynch & co to win.
Reigns/Rusev. Rusev should win this but won't.
Miz/Crews. Too early for Crews and not a big enough name yet. Miz to win.
Banks/Charlotte. Most people expect a win for Banks, but I expect shenanigans. Charlotte to regain.
Balor/Rollins. The demon king entrance does not have the same impact in a huge arena and again, Balor is not big enough to head a franchise. Rollins to win clean.
Ambrose/Ziggler. Dolph to fall short yet again. Ambrose to win after having taken yet another beating.
Cena/Styles. This should be the match of the night. Cena doesn't mind losing at Summerslam. AJ to win and move on to an Ambrose feud.
Orton/Lesnar. Early Lesnar domination, but an RKO from Nowhere
for a surprise Orton win.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Aug 2016 17:45:51
My predictions

Sheamus beats cesaro
Enzo and cass beat jeri-ko
The club beats the new day
Beckys team wins
Rusev crushes roman
Crews beats the miz
Banks wins
Balor beats rollins with help from the club
Dolph beats ambrose
Aj beats up john cena and wins
Hope lesnar wins but I think golddberg will interfere and cost him the macth
Can see the universal title match being the main event and summerslam ends with balor and the club joining forces and standing tall with universal and tag team titles.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Aug 2016 20:43:11
Gunnar pretty much agree although think Ambrose will retain (then to lose it to styles at the next smackdown Ppv, no bigger way to start smackdown ppv's then with a title change) and I also think that miz will win, then someone to show up to be the next challenger, either an ex superstar or someone from nxt. I also think that the lesner vs orton match could turn into a raw vs smackdown segment leading to a no contest but orton getting lesner with an RKO.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Aug 2016 21:51:49
I'll go with.
-The faces in the 6 woman tag, unless there's a bigger name that replaces Eva.
-Sheamus because I can't remember the last time he won a match,
-Miz because I think someone that's not currently on the roster, will be who takes it from him. Plus he hasn't won a match in awhile ether.
-JeriKO. Just a hunch
- G&A. I've been expecting this to be where New Day lost the titles since before Mania and I'm sticking with it.
-Reigns. By DQ, to setup future specialty ppv matches.
-Sasha. Unless Charlotte makes another friend.
-Styles. with help from Jon Stewart.
-Lesnar. Brock is going to Brock.
-Balor. Thus becoming the New-New Era poster boy.
-Ambrose. Hard to pick against the guy that's front and center on the marquee.

Main Event: Bork vs Snek.

Goldberg prediction: He spears Heath Slater.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Aug 2016 23:01:58
With the rumours of ambrose backstage heat I fancy a ziggler win. Ziggler vs styles would be a great rivalry imo.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Aug 2016 03:15:19
They took an off-hand comment from Wade Keller and tried to run with it. The dirt sheets are getting more and more desperate for content with every passing day.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Aug 2016 10:46:38
Haggis, even with heat on Ambrose isn't enough for a Ziggler win. He needs a massive change to character before he gets a push and even then maybe not. He's another one who can't keep his mouth shut.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Aug 2016 16:08:07
Aye mate but he's every right to be p*ssed off and speak out the guys a great performer and talent should have been world champ a few times.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Aug 2016 19:01:34
If they did things right, I think they could make the Royal Rumble match epic by focusing it around Cesaro and Ziggler. Have them start 1 and 2, and last all the way to the end.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Aug 2016 20:07:49
One from left field. I haven't read or heard exactly what Big E's injury actually is. How about a return at Summerslam, he comes down to the ring during the match and his interference wins it, not for the New Day, but the newest member of the Club - Langston.

If I'm completely honest I don't rally rate Ziggler. Nothing about him is unique and never has been, he is even now using HBK stomps before hitting a super kick. He makes everyone else look golden but never really himself. He's certainly not the face of the company ability or charisma. Upper midcard at the very most.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Aug 2016 11:15:33
I disagree. Ziggler is awesome the purr fact he makes everyone else look awesome is why he is so good in don't discount any man who puts his body threw what zigler has is a hero. Look at people like hhh cena and hogan who never did anything to help others. Give the guy the respect hea due.

Now Del Rio suspended for breaching the wellness policy. 30 days. Rumours have been going around that he isn't too happy with WWE.
This may be the thing that decides his mind. He isn't going anywhere in WWE anyway.

Agree0 Disagree0

Paige was also suspended. On her birthday no less.

There have been rumblings for awhile that ADR could be leaving in October when he has an out in his contract. Him wearing his El Patron tights last night, might of been a clue to his future plans.

It'll be interesting to see what Paige ends up doing. The way she talks about ADR on Instagram, she seems to be way past puppy love. Not sure when her contract is up, but I'd imagine it would be tougher to treat her like they did Ryback. Especially once her arm/ shoulder injury is healed and she's ready to go.

One of the rumors as to why ADR has been treated the way he has, is because HHH and others want him gone because they feel he is a bad influence for Paige. If she's feeling that Latino heat enough though, I wouldn't be surprised if she tried to follow ADR out the door.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Aug 2016 11:10:15
The good news with Paige is she is still very young.

If she were to walk away on decent terms she can come back.

Same with ADR in fairness

and Ryback since we are listing.

Give people time to miss you then bring you back as bigger attraction.

There are rumours that the injury Paige has may end her career early. Apparently she has a neck injury that has led to less feeling and strength in her arms which could get worse if she continues. This is the same injury that forced Daniel Bryan to retire.

Even if this isn't true I can't see Paige's suspension affecting her too much as she wasn't due to return from injury any time in the next 30 days anyway.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Aug 2016 15:14:37
I'm more interested to know what they were doing. Del Rio, you sly dog!

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Aug 2016 20:11:26
Did anyone else notice a few weeks ago that Daniel Bryan called Apollo Crews, Apollo Creed, lol? I was thinking and I could see Crews getting into a feud with Rusev for the IC or US title around WM time (I know they're on different brands but there are loads of ways around that) Apollo coming out to "Living in America" giving it the old "Apollo from Rocky entrance" would get a bug pop IMO.

Agree2 Disagree0

18 Aug 2016 00:44:34
There are expected to be some people switching brands soon. I think Apollo is one of those people that could benefit from switching. Especially with the cruiserweights coming to RAW. They should focus more on the "sports" side of things and have Smackdown continue to focus more on entertainment.

Del rio suspended for wellness policy violation. Rumours where hhh wanted rid of him so this could be his chanceto usher him oot the door

Anyone else thinking we could have a Braun Strowman v Brock Lesnar match soon? Something like Survivor series.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Aug 2016 21:30:37
Hope so I like strowman.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Aug 2016 21:44:56
Can't see it like. A think brock will put someone over soon just can't see it being braun.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Aug 2016 22:26:49
I propose a 7 on 7 Survivor Series elimination tables match.

Team Lesnar - Strowman, Samoa Joe, Authors of Pain, Rusev, and Sheamus.
Team Reigns - Cesaro, Big E, Cass, Dylan Miley, Big Show, and Mark Henry.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Aug 2016 15:00:51
I would love to see Brock put over Owens. I was really surprised at mania as I was sure Ambrose was going to go over Lesnar.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Aug 2016 17:40:54
Hard to see what they do with Lesnar now. His UFC career is over and he just doesn't seem overjoyed to be back in the WWE.
Will they give him a title run or wheel him out to appear in the ppvs?
I know it is almost impossible to do in the age of social media, but I would love for his appearances to be surprises. Someone calls an open challenge, be it a champion or not and the Beast's music hits. The place would go nuts.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Aug 2016 23:56:41
Brock deserves a title run, was never pinned or submitted and never got his rematch, if not i'd like to see him take on balor or samoa joe.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Aug 2016 23:03:03
Lesner joe would be epic.

16 Aug 2016 20:00:32
I'm kinda looking forward to cesaro sheamus best of 7 series. All be it wwe creative must do it correctly cesaro a hell. Of a wrestler and shemus is a hard hitting grapple could be some good matches and a decent story to be told. Of course cesaro must come out on top it could really give him that boost to start challenging the top guys on raw for the main title

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Aug 2016 21:01:22
If Sheamus were to drop his evil Red Rooster vibe and truly go back to the Celtic Warrior, and there was actually something they were fighting for. I could really get into it, because they're capable of having some good/ great matches. As it stands right now though, it's hard for me to care. They've started it based on a horrible premise and there's no prize for the winner and/ or penalty for the loser.

Agree2 Disagree0

16 Aug 2016 21:43:55
Av got to agree he looks like a complete dafty wae his gimmick the now.

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Aug 2016 09:41:36
I think its just a bit too much. We can assume it will go all the way to 4 - 3 and we have already seen the 2 wrestle a few times over the past month. At this rate we are going to see Cesaro Vs Sheamus about 10 times in 2 months. Maybe a best of 5 could have been better.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Aug 2016 12:21:26
Agree completely Jables. At the moment it looks like they have no
real idea what to do with either of them. The loser will have no immediate positive future and the winner? He will have won a series that just doesn't matter.
It is a shame as both and in particular Cesaro, have a lot to offer.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Aug 2016 20:06:05
I think it would have been better as a best of 5 series, but I'm not going to complain about seeing those two go at it multiple times. They legit beat the hell out of each other. As long as there's a few stipulation matches (Ladder, cage, street fight, 2 out of 3 falls etc) thrown in there then it should be good.

Agree1 Disagree0

18 Aug 2016 00:52:45
The SummerSlam pre-show is supposedly going to be 2 hours and I believe TakeOver is going to have a pre-show as well. I think they should go find the RAW Roulette wheel, and knockout the entire series this weekend.

News and rumors.

UpUpDownDown is being added to the network.

HBK has started working at the Performance Center as the head trainer of the finishing class.

For those that haven't heard. Big Show is set to face Shaquille O'Neal at Wrestlemania 33. As of right now it's expected to be his retirement match.

Goldberg is rumored to be making an appearance at SummerSlam.

There have been rumors that WWE will be having an unknown amount of talent switch brands in the near future. Possibly by trade? The 2 names that keep popping up are Orton and Owens.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Aug 2016 19:48:40
I wouldn't be too surprised if they give Show a last run at a title.
I know he is slow and has outstayed his welcome by at least 2 years, but his longevity and a stellar career should allow him to go out on a high.
Cos he won't be allowed to beat Shaq.

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Aug 2016 19:57:56
A wouldn't grudge show a last run with a title. Always willing to put over young and up and coming talent. He's earned my respect over the years.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Aug 2016 21:40:16
I'd be down for one last tag titles run for Show. A reunion of JeriShow or him teaming with Strowman?

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Aug 2016 17:11:50
I'd most likely want to see him with a smaller guy as tag champs and for him to be the enforcer type in a tag team with a neville or something but a have the feeling neville is being drafted to raw for the cw devision.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Aug 2016 20:08:46
A tag title run with someone wouldn't be too bad, but there's loads of decent tag teams around right now so I don't see that happening. He shouldn't hold a world title again IMO and even the mid card in Raw is beyond him IMO. If he got transfered to Smackdown Down I could handle him having a feud with Apollo Crews have him win the IC title one more time and then out Crews over.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Aug 2016 15:51:03
I finally got round to watching the Hardy's final deletion storyline and I must admit I wasn't that impressed. I know a lot of people have praised it but I just didn't get into it. That's probably since I think both Hardys are well past it.

I just can't understand how Matt Hardy can accuse Bray Wyatt and WWE of copying his stuff when the whole thing screamed Lucha Underground. If you are going to accuse people of stealing ideas you first want to make sure yours is unique.

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Aug 2016 16:19:56
I'm with you on this one. It was in my opinion quite poor and laughable really. I don't really understand the buzz around it. Also I thought the wyatt's doing it a week later was a spoof?

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Aug 2016 16:44:49
It's definitely an acquired taste. I love Broken Matt Hardy, I think he's absolutely hilarious. The stuff he's does since the Final Deletion has been hysterical.

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Aug 2016 16:39:00
I thought it was a cracking throw back to the wacky world of Pro Wrestling.

Its not a sport, it can be as stupid as it likes.

I was entertained, which is more that I can say for anything else the Hardy's have done since the 90's.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Aug 2016 18:27:06
I think a lot of the buzz is ironic, as in people are laughing at it. Must admit however, I couldn't stop watching it! Broken Matt Hardy has definitely found a very entertaining niche.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Aug 2016 09:43:35
If gives the Hardys and excuse to look like they are on drugs. That way they don't have to hide it any more haha.

14 Aug 2016 16:38:23
What are people's thoughts on the Summerslam card? I think it's a really strong card, the strongest I've seen on a WWE PPV in a while. there's hardly any filler or toilet break matches. I'm genuinely excited to see, and interested in the outcome for most of the matches. I can't remember the last time that was the case.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Aug 2016 22:37:57
A few days ago on wreddit. Someone asked something along the lines of, what has happened in 2016, that would of been the hardest to believe a year ago?

I feel like the entire SummerSlam week would be a huge mind F' to last year's me. The first ppv go home shows of the 2nd brand split era, the continuation of the CWC, TakeOver headlined by Samoa Joe vs Nakamura and featuring Roode, Aries, Gargano, and Ciampa. Then SummerSlam itself with Ambrose defending the WWE title vs Ziggler, Rollins facing Balor for a new World title, a 3 time champion Reigns relegated to the mid-card, Styles vs Cena 2, G&A looking to end New Day's year long reign, and even JeriKO vs E&BC.
