So. whos ready for another year of the grapples. A year to mania and i'm wondering on a few things.
Who can be a legitimate threat to Brock?
Whats the plan with Taker?
Where does Cena go from here?
Miz v Bryan should be Mania but. summerslam?
Surely only way to get Reigns over is as a heel?
Bryan v Seth for the IC title he never lost?
Where does Ambrose fit in now?

Should make for a good year!

I suspect Reigns will be taking the title Friday at the greatest Royal Rumble. If not then it'll be Bobby Lashley.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Apr 2018 12:07:53
By Lashley i mean at a later date not at the greatest royal rumble.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Apr 2018 18:51:15
I'm looking forward to the Greatest Royal Rumble. I think Reigns will win. I am hoping for a heel turn and then have Reigns lose to Strowman later in the year (probably at Summerlsam) I'm not sure that's what WWE will do but I can still hope! Lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Apr 2018 14:44:05
I actually find it hard to predict what will and won't happen on RAW. The trade seems to have yet again given them too much talent. Reigns, Strowman, Lesnar, Rollins, Balor, Lashley, Owens, Zayn, Ziggler, Macintyre, Cesaro, Gable, Sheamus and I am sure I have missed a lot out. Fit Cena and Taker in there and it all seems a bit of a mess.
Smackdown seems far more logical. Feud of the year contender with the Miz and Bryan. Styles to have a quality feud with Nakamura and plenty of talent like Cass, Joe and Orton to come into the mix. Even the women's seems to make more sense on Smaackdown as do the tag teams.

Bruno Sammartino. WWE's first superstar has passed away.
His importance cannot be over estimated.
He was the very large foundation that Vince McMahon senior built his company. Holding the championship for ridiculously long periods and selling out MSG time after time.
Without Sammartino it is doubtful we would have had Hogan and the rest that followed in his wake.
Rest in peace big man.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Apr 2018 07:59:28
RIP Bruno.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Apr 2018 11:35:12
I can't say I have ever seen a Bruno match, but when ever anyone mentions his name you can taste the respect.

I think he held the title for 8 years at one point, and MSG sold out every time he main evented for a decade.

Absolutely beloved.

In fairness to big match John, if you don't really want to get married or have children, and you look like him, and happen to be a huge star and a millionaire, why would you settle for one smoking hot babe?

anyone think roman will beat brock at greatest royal rumble? I read that the plan is to have him beat brock there as he won't get booed so much, but to me that's pointless because he'll just get booed on the raw after.
don't know what will happen though as I have read different reports some saying lesnar's new deal is short term and some saying it;s a multi year deal.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Apr 2018 10:24:42
I think having Roman beat Brock is kind of a waste of time now, Lesnar has comfortably beaten him, its such a shame they fed Braun to him earlier in the year. Braun is the guy the fans want to see win at this point, and can realistically stand toe to toe with Brock.

I am thinking they've booked a cage match so that Roman can win without Brock being pinned.

For me its a waste of Brocks invincibility to have him beaten by Roman at the tenth go.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Apr 2018 20:06:13
I think he will beat Lesnar. Like you said, it will be before a crowd that won't boo him out of the place.

Nobody will be that bothered either way.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Apr 2018 22:15:57
bessex it is a big shame that braun was fed to lesnar
for me braun was the perfect candidate to face lesnar at mania and bat him, would have got a massive pop from the crowd to and would have been a perfect way to end mania but it seems like braun has been turned into a comedy act and not as much the monster among men now.

i like brock but not as champ, have no problem with him losing the title but if he does I really don't see why it has to be reigns. he may not get booed in saudi arabia but he'll 100% get booed once they are back from there and will continue to get booed.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Apr 2018 11:14:11
There is no doubt that Reigns will eventually be champion, it is just a question of who he will beat. If it was to be Strowman, he would be even more unpopular than he is now. Reigns was actually fairly effective in is promos about Lesnar being a part time champ and a growing number of fans are getting tired of the rarity of his appearances as well.
Maybe a Reigns win over Lesnar wouldn't be as unpopular as we all seem to think.
Yes, Reigns was booed on RAW, but the crowd just after Mania is unique and far more rowdy than is normal. I think Reigns would be accepted as champ with just a minimum of heart-hearted booing, unless they were stupid enough to let him win it in a place like Chicago.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Apr 2018 10:59:10
It would be nice to think that Vince has realised that the Roman Reigns experiment has failed miserably and that he will know give Braun the spot as The Guy. Unfortunately it's probably just that they think the Jeddah crowd will cheer Roman so they delayed his inevitable victory. At this point I don't even minds Reigns having a title run, I just hope it's short and they get the belt on Braun ASAP.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Apr 2018 09:59:14
I hope the Saudis boo him as well to be honest.

The obvious way to get Roman over is to let him turn heel. He is naturally dislikeable, very smug.

I heard Afa say the other week that all of the Samoan dynasty have been heels because America is casually racist and will never accept Roman because he is not quite like them. The only exceptions were Rikishi and the Rock, and Rikishi had to do some pretty sad dancing and butt wiping to get over as a face.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Apr 2018 23:18:36
But if he's signed a contract with wwe will they have him drop it, even more would brock signed if he knew he was going to lose the title.

Got to admit the intercontinental looks good on monday night rollins!
Always liks Seth.

11 Apr 2018 09:42:58
Rollins is a classic IC Champion, worker in the ring, earned it over years, much like the Miz and Balor delivers quality every time.

Those guys are the stars for the next 5 years.

Brock remains a draw, Cena, Taker, HHH, and Angle are dragging out their fame. Roman is if anything getting less popular the more he is pushed.

The 3 surrounding the IC title right now are the guys to push.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Apr 2018 16:34:47
Agreed mate, I did like Kevin Owens when he first came over from NXT but not done it for me. Styles deserves the big title as well, top performer!

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Apr 2018 14:12:30
I think KO struggled because of the nature of his push, I thought he did well with the best friends Y2J angle, but he was basically booked as a cowardly heel relying on his mates when what got him over was his badass prizefighter gimmick.

Styles has the big title in my opinion, as long as its called the Universal title I consider the World title to be more prestigious.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Apr 2018 20:35:21
Aj has the proper title for sure, Brock is the man but this part time thing bores me on occasions, I do have to say the womens is decent, massively improved now. Decent to have Ronda aswell and mella is money! 😀.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Apr 2018 10:26:35
I don't mind Brock holding his title from a far, what winds me up is that when he does show up its become very repetitive to have Heyman cut promos, then have the same match over and over.

Happy to keep him special, but he needs to be a bit more special when he arrives.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Apr 2018 14:02:00
I don't mind Brock (Raven Darkholme) being part time, it adds to his mystique. I just hate the Suolex City gimmick. Brock can put on good matches if he's allowed to. Suplex City matches are usually awful and boring IMO.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Apr 2018 10:00:41
I think that's just his style now, fight like it was a fight, smash them, throw them, beat them about.

He is being WWE's version of MMA.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Apr 2018 20:37:15
I am trying very hard to remember two such model, hard working professionals being treated as poorly as Cesaro and Sheamus were treated last night.
They have been completely discredited and turned into the likes of 3MB. The only way to stop this is to have them win the titles back tonight but even then they have had their reputation marred.
Even if they were to split up, I can't see much of a future for Sheamus although Cesaro would be a welcome addition on Smackdown.
As for Strowman, he is supposed to be the monster among men. last night he turned into the Gruffalo.
I understand Mania likes to have it's comic moments, but I can't think of 2 men who deserve less to be the butt of the joke.

Agree0 Disagree1

09 Apr 2018 21:13:11
It was certainly a strange match. Their entrance was something that would work with New Day but nobody else. Strowman is taking over from Big Show as the man who goes between heel and face on a week by week basis. That match wasn't good for any of the 3 participants or the Raw tag team division. Or, for that matter, the boy who looked like a girl.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Apr 2018 09:51:56
It was a nice touch, but as you say The Bar and Strowman were the most serious/ legit stars on Raw, they have respect and they don't mess about, making them mess about in their featured Mnaia match was budget.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Apr 2018 13:29:01
I can't help but think Cesaro is made for Smackdown, Sheamus is all Raw, but you can give Cesaro a broom and 20 minutes and he gives you a 4 star match.

I'd love to see him compete with Nakumura, Bryan, AJ Styles, and assuming the weasel back in Zayne and Owens.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Apr 2018 14:06:23
wasn't bad but wasn't a great ppv imo. some good matches and some not so good, expected a bit more of the styles/ nakamura match. actually quite enjoyed the mixed tag match, always great to see undertaker to although the match was short.
don't know why wwe had to go down the let's feel sorry for reigns route at the end, no crowd reaction at all.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Apr 2018 09:53:15
The night was far too long, I don't think anyone feels sorry for Roman, he is still being pushed as a top top guy. Glad he isn't champ though.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Apr 2018 19:04:45
i never meant anyone felt sorry for roman, I meant wwe tried to get people to feel sorry for him and on his side at the end of mania and they have tried that with the beatings brock gave roman before mania to.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Apr 2018 09:45:23
Its rare someone takes a beating like that then still gets boo'd when they walk to the back. Its so rare to see a hard way bloody face these days, and people still didn't want to applaud his efforts after he let the toughest guy in the world smash his head.

Where do you go from here?

The build up to this wrestlemania was absolutely awful. What is up with this undertaker rubbish. Once he lost to roman reigns his streak meant nothing. 21 in a row to 2 straight losses is poor.

Why not build it up as cena being heel stating that he just can't cut it anymore and undertaker going to prove himself.

I really don't care about any matches becuase we all know reigns will win and Styles and Nakamura will not main event when it's easily the best match on the card.

Rubbish.

Agree0 Disagree1

07 Apr 2018 09:54:17
It's the best WM card in ages IMO. I think the build has been decent and I am looking forward to watching it.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Apr 2018 11:04:29
It's Mania. Yes, there have been mistakes in the build up and like Standard says, the 'will he turn up or won't he' Taker story has been incredibly weak. There are 2 too many McMahons wrestling for my taste. Some results look pre-ordained. Reigns, Strowman, Asuka, Jax, Bludgeon Brothers look shoe-ins.
But like I said, it is Mania. There will be surprises. The wrestling will be top quality, the majority of match ups look good and although I will not be watching it live, I will avoid the results and watch it as soon as I can, though maybe with my finger on the fast forward button at times.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Apr 2018 09:55:23
I think they played out the Taker Cena thing well on the night, especially with Elias. If Taker picks up his Million quid for that little cameo he really is just dragging it out.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Apr 2018 21:06:50
The number of times wrestlers either point at or look longingly at the Wrestelmania sign is getting hilarious. Everyone, and I mean everyone has done it so many times since the Rumble, I have thought of making it a drinking game - someone looks at the sign in a meaningful way, half a pint. point at it and the whole thing is downed.
They should introduce this in other sports. Harry Kane looks up at an FA Cup sign or Tom Brady at a Superbowl one at a stressful moment. Tiger Woods could point at a Masters sign. I would wet myself.

Agree2 Disagree0

04 Apr 2018 11:11:04
It is pretty pointless now.

I used to think it was cool when the final two guys in the Rumble would do it, about 15 years ago.

Now you have Steph doing it after a promo.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Apr 2018 18:15:24
It is why I don't enjoy this 'road to Wrestlemania' cobblers. I like to think that Ronda Rousey was satirising the whole thing with her awkward pointing after the rumble, although it seems that she just like that anyway.

Agree2 Disagree0

06 Apr 2018 10:00:55
When you have people announcing themselves for the Andre Battle Royal by doing it, its a bit sad.

Looks like the WWE are leaving two major surprises for the night of WM.

Who will be Braun's partner?

Will the Taker show up for Cena?

I can't think of a less storied build up to what should have been the featured match than this Taker Cena nonsense.

I am beginning to think the Deadman shows up and says they'll have their match at WM35. Which will be fairly insulting to people who have been led to believe they are going to get Cena v Undertaker.

At least if they give JC v U a full years build up you'd have the story the way it should be told.

As for Braun, its got to be either Bliss for banter, or someone he can fall out and feud with like Joe or Cas.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Apr 2018 12:55:00
Out of interest are any of you regulars staying up?

I'll be at Attack! Pro Wrestling's show in Cardiff for the 3rd year running. A few hours of the South West's liveliest bunch before they drop the big screens for the longest show in Wrestling History.

I could pay for a weekend abroad on the amount I will have to spend to stay in beer for about 10 hours!

03 Apr 2018 20:37:37
I'll probably record it I think my long night days are over lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Apr 2018 20:59:33
I was going to watch it at the Walkabout in Temple but my boss has given me a really heavy day on Monday with a 6am start so I will have to watch it later. At least my liver will thank me.
The only way I can see Cena/ Taker working now is for Cena to go as a fan and Taker launches a surprise attack leading to an unsanctioned match. But you are right. This has been a mess relying on Cena's mic skills and nothing else.
I still think Strowman will win it on his own. Giving him a partner such as Joe or Cass will not make his win even remotely surprising. I expect his next feud to appear on the first RAW after Mania.
I really hope they have other surprises up their sleeves which social media haven't had a sniff of yet.
Still, enjoy it mate and have a drink for me.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Apr 2018 11:12:53
I saw a tweet that said he should just drag James Elsworth's prone body to the ring, win it by himself, then drag it back.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Mar 2018 20:32:25
I love all the rumours that fly around before a Mania.
Talk is that this might be Lesnar's last appearance in a WWE ring which would not be too much of a surprise.
My favourite though is that Shane won't be appearing at Mania but that Bryan's partner against KO and Zayn will be non other than Jericho.
If true, this will be the match I will look forward to the most. Even more than Styles/ Nakamura.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Apr 2018 12:46:29
I really hope we never see Lesnar in WWE again after WM he is lazy overated and only has 3 moves, his suplex city has become very boring and stale imo.
I don't fully blame him creative are to blame too.

Agree1 Disagree0

03 Apr 2018 11:26:07
It would be an amazing swerve if Brock wins, but realistically his time is over.

More than happy for him to stick around another year and only wrestle 6 times, as long as he puts over 2 guys, I feel like (assuming he loses the title to RR) he could make a handful of appearances beating guys like Cena and Orton, before eventually getting beat well by Braun.

I'd much rather see Jericho in the tag match than Shane, but outside of the story they have tried to tell I don't really want to see Shane wrestle.

I'm hoping Bryan screws Shane and we see a super Indie faction form.

25 Mar 2018 12:33:14
Undertaker v2 just kidding lol, I wonder if he'll return as his Husky character but i've also seen a few rumours saying he is going to return in a red neck nasty violent no nonsense gimmik.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Mar 2018 15:18:32
Imo he should just go back to being a cult leader with no supernatural stuff. Evil red neck cult leader is the way to go IMO. Have him say that he doesn't hear her voice anymore since The Ultimate Deletion (Sister Abigail) and that he is no longer The Eater of Worlds, but he's something much worse. Just have him be really evil and manipulative but not supernatural at all.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Mar 2018 15:21:18
Yeah I’ve seen a couple that says he could align with Matt Hardy, like you said he could return more vicious and even more red neck like. Maybe like his time in FCW.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Mar 2018 09:25:03
I have sort of lost interest in Bray, he has just been used to try and elevate top guys to being stars.

For me he is no better than Luke Harper at being a horrible swap dweller.

I say hitch him to the woken universe and continue to get Matt Hardy over at his expense why you still can.

Well, that ain't going to happen and in my view quite right too.
The WWE have actually done the right thing in they way they now treat their women wrestlers.
Mind you, rumour has it they might be ready to welcome Hogan back in the fold. 1 step forwards, 2 back.

How WWE should introduce Sister Abigail (For real)

A video that happened after the Ultimate Deletion, a camera faces the Lake of reincarnation, when you hear a woman singing it sounds like humming at first but then it gets louder and can make out the words "He's got the whole world in his hands" then a woman comes into camera view walks into the lake and picks up Bray's body carrying him away and out of camera shot.
People start to realize oh rubbish they're finally doing Sister Abigail.

Now in this scenario I'd like Bray and Sister to return to TV after the main event of WM so fans go home happy, but I feel like itd be too soon. So instead we'll have to settle for the next ppv, not sure if its Raw of SD so right after the universal or WWE title match lights go out and you hear a woman singing "He's got the whole world in his hands" spot light comes on and at the bottom of the ramp the same lady that went in the lake is sitting in a rocking chair. She goes something along the lines of "I showed him the light again, I showed him who he's meant to be, and what he needs to do. He's coming for you ____, RUN" Spotlight goes out, lights instantly come back on the lady and rocking chair are gone, the champ is no longer alone Bray attacks the champ and delivers a beat down we haven't seen before, completely destroying ringside *destroys barricade, ring steps used over and over* when everyone thinks its over he grabs the champ throws him in the ring and grabs a chair, wraps the chair around the neck and delivers a sister abigail.
Bray Wyatt is back and he brought Sister Abigail with him. Let me know what you think, I know its kinda long and I'm sorry for that. Cheers.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Mar 2018 14:09:08
That's a good idea better than the writers of the show. Sadly this will never happen more likely to see husky Harris return.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Mar 2018 12:36:36
That is a cracking idea but sadly WWE writers lack imagination so this is unlikely to happen.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Mar 2018 16:22:41
I have said a few times that i didn't think Sister Abigail should EVER be an on screen character. It seems like now would be the worst time to do it IMO. It would undo the Ultimate Deletion (where Woken Matt deleted the Spirit of Sister Abigail) and it would rob Bray of the chance of a much needed reboot.

I would go the complete opposite direction. Have Bray revert to his cult leader gimmick but with no supernatural stuff. Have him say that since the Ultimate Deletion he can't hear her voice anymore and he is no longer the Eater of Worlds but that he's far more dangerous now. Have him be evil and manipulative but not supernatural. He could have a few sheep mask minions and recruit some new family members down the line.

I'd have the family be a changing thing, he could always have his sheel mask followers but he could recruit people as he feuds. As an example; He could feud with the Miz and recruit the Miztourage, then discard them once they've served their purpose. He could do this 2 or 3 times before you'd need to change tack. I feel Bray needs a change and Sister Abigail is not the way to go.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Mar 2018 09:33:07
I suppose the woken universe is the place to bring Sister Abigail to life if you absolutely have to, mainly because you accept its nonsense outside of the real show.

I do like the idea that She has been deleted stripping Bray of his power/ madness, and him being bitter about it.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Mar 2018 20:50:01
Genuinely proper buzzing for Bryan, will be good to see him back in the ring properly once again, I’m guessing it will end up being Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan vs Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn though I could be wrong.

Agree0 Disagree1

21 Mar 2018 10:24:38
Looks like that's where they are going, but I was really hoping for him to join Owens and Sami.

Imagine if they all turned on Shane at WM, and formed a stable that wanted to prove that the indy guys do it better.

I am made up for him, and frankly us, its a shame the Miz can't have the first swing, as he kept the feud going when there wasn't really a realistic chance of him getting a match out of it.

Miz vs Bryan World Title Match at WM35?

Agree2 Disagree0

24 Mar 2018 14:04:23
Good call on the Miz, but I am not sure he deserves to be in a feud with Bryan which he will be guaranteed to lose.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Mar 2018 15:37:26
Bryan could have so many good feuds, and half seem to write themselves. Imagine him facing AJ, Nakamura, Owens, Zayn, The Miz, even Strowman or Brock if he's still around. Those could all be amazing feuds with great matches. In terms of storyline I want to see him face The Miz the most, the build would be incredible and the cried would go nuts for the pay off. In terms of sheer match quality Bryan v AJ could be an all time great match.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Mar 2018 15:43:38
Forgot about Angle and Joe. Bryan v either of those would be gold as well. Even Bobby Roode v Bryan would be good (probably not as good as the others mentioned but still good)

Thats without thinking of NXT: Johnny Gargano, Tommaso Ciampa, Adam Cole, Alistair Black and Roderick Strong could all have great feuds with Bryan.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Mar 2018 19:45:34
Just been on Wwe official Facebook that Daniel Bryan has been cleared to return to in ring action. Get in! I'm sure WWE wouldn't take risks with Bryan as it would be PR disaster. So glad he's coming back. Seeing him face AJ, Nakamura, Owens, Zane etc would be awesome.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Mar 2018 20:22:47
Bryan has never been a favourite of mine, but you can't help feeling pleased for him. His determination to come back deserves respect and good luck to him.
I just really hope he is not used as part of Shane's continual ego trip.

Bryan has never been a favourite of mine, but you can't help feeling pleased for him. His determination to come back deserves respect and good luck to him.
I just really hope he is not used as part of Shane's continual ego trip.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Mar 2018 10:27:09
I still say the angle when he joined the Wyatt Family, then turned on Bray in the cage match was one of my favourite things of the last decade.

The guys over with the kids, the casual fans, the web fans, and even Vince.

Daniel Bryan is the real deal, and I hope he comes back at the same capacity.

14 Mar 2018 23:42:22
Just a thought for Braun Strowman if he does end up facing Sheamus and Cesaro at WM and he also gets a partner maybe it could be Big Cass but more realistically it will most likely be Elias. And also I reckon it will end up being Shane McMahon and a to be announced partner vs Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn at WM and I reckon Shane’s partner will end up being Chris Jericho.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Mar 2018 23:55:02
More thoughts to them ideas, seem a rumour that Braun’s partner could also be Bray Wyatt, Kane or Big Show or that he just goes it by himself. And also Shane’s partner could also be Vince McMahon himself, I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

I'm thinking Strowmans prtner might be Samoa Joe he is due back anytime now.

17 Mar 2018 11:38:02
I think Strowman will face the Bar on his own. The Bar have been built up as having no real competition from the other tag teams and Strowman needs a match at Mania.
I really hope that Sheamus and Cesaro win. If they don't, the tag team division on RAW will slip even further to being pointless. However Strowman has lost every time he goes for a title and they have pushed him so strongly recently and turned him into a face comedy monster that I suspect your new tag team champions after Mania will be Strowman.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Mar 2018 12:40:38
Y2J to be Shane's partner would be genius, fits the story lovely.

I would have rather they'd dropped Shane and built KO vs SZ in to the blood feud it should be, but if it does have to be a tag match that would be ace.

Strowman has a few decent potential partners there, but I assume it will be Ellias, that said Braun winning them by himself and carrying both belts around would be awesome for him, even if it does pretty much bury the division.

I'm hoping for Curt Hawkins.

I have vague memories of vader winning the tag titles back in the 90s on his own. I think he will pick bliss and she stands on the apron while match.

20 Mar 2018 19:47:51
He should face them on his Own. I really like The Bar but Strowman is gold. Give him the tag belts and a decent 3 month run then have him win the Universal title from Reigns once Reigns has had his run.

You will see Angle telling Strowman he can't compete on his own and Strowman will shout back in his face why not.
Like I said earlier, I hope he doesn't win, but he will.
If this is the case, either split the Bar up or let them move to Smackdown where the serious teams are.
Strowman can beat up the comedy opponents on RAW while Smackdown could gain an identity as the home of tag wrestling.

The Bar really deserve better, I see Braun destroying them and the his heel partner (probably Ellias) blind tagging and stealing the pin.

I don't know why they'd slow him down in his pursuit of being the top guy, Strowman is on fire. A bit like when Ryback seemed untouchable, pull the trigger or you'll slow him down too much.

Sounds lame though but it feels like Cena will win at fastlane, Styles activate his rematch clause and it becomes a Tripple threat match at Mania. Would realish Styles and Nakamura's match up though. Wait! Who write this scripting?

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Mar 2018 15:05:50
I can see Cena somehow muscling in on the WM match between Nakamura and Styles.
The only way I think this won't happen is if during the match at fastlane Taker shows up but I think that's unlikely.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Mar 2018 15:32:31
Can't see it myself. We have been sold Styles/ Nakamura and I think that the WWE will honour their promise on this one.
Looking at the matches at Fastlane, I am finding it difficult to see any of the titles at stake changing hands.
However, if Cena is to face Taker, then the Deadman must make an appearance sooner than later and why not get him to cost Cena the win.

I'm not sure that that isn't mainly mumbo jumbo, but there is an interesting point that the women could use a tag team title these days, there is enough talent to justify it.

I read they are making a 205 tag team title in the spring.

I was thinking recently that NXT has enough talent to create a underneath title, then figured that with the 205 Belt and the UK title they have 5 titles they could defend on a Takeover should they want.

When you have personal issues as good as DIY split, you don't need titles.

Did anyone else see Jericho bickering with Chiampa on twitter? Can you see Y2J at Takeover, the guy just does what he wants. Legend.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Mar 2018 15:39:07
While there is no denying that the quality of women's wrestling has improved drastically even from just a few years ago, I still have very little interest in it.
So far we have had imitations of the Rumble and the Chamber.
If they really want to push the division then they should do something different than just copying the men's matches.
Maybe have a single title that is competed for by women from both RAW and Smackdown. Just something different.

Is anyone else doubting Ronda's WWE pedigree after Raw?

She cocked up her promo and then awkwardly roughed up Steph.

Heyman derived another world class promo.

The Revival took another pointless loss.

Bayley and Sasha had a great segment.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Mar 2018 20:04:12
No denying she was rubbish on the mic and I really don't like the 'Rowdy' gimmick. The whole point of signing her was that she was such a bad ass in UFC. Making her a face is just wrong. I also doubt she has had even close to enough training to sell moves which is why she looked so awkward.
Maybe she needs a manager and Paige springs to mind.
I despair of what they are doing to the tag teams on RAW. They are promoting The Bar as defeating all competition and the rumour is that they will be facing a new team at Mania made up of 2 wrestlers who are not part of an existing team. No idea who this will be.
I'd much prefer them to face a team like the Authors of Pain now that the Revival seem out of the question.
Cesaro and Sheamus have been 2 of the most consistent performers on Raw for ages. They never seem to have a bad match. They deserve to have a stronger story line and decent opponents at Mania.

I like strong Champions, but they could do with building some credible opponents as well.

So we now know how the main event at Fastlane will pan out.
Zyan and Owens will turn on each other and fight either into the crowd or the backstgae area. Ziggler and Corbin will be there for big spots, someone's going through a table.
Then just as Cena thinks he has title won. BONG. lights go out, back on Taker is in the ring, chokeslam-Tombstone and points to the Wrestlemania sign.
Styles gets the pin, we then have 3 confirmed matches for Mania (very very lazy booking using one match to set up three) .

Agree0 Disagree1

01 Mar 2018 10:20:26
I agree that Styles is likely to retain the title. I don't think that they are going to jeopadise his match against Nakamura at Mania.
It is also likely that Owens will face Zayn, but I can see Zayn pretending to lie down before turning the move on KO.
I am not convinced that Taker will return. I know rumours are flying around that he has not been passed fit and that Mysterio is being lined up as Cena's potential opponent.
I don't want to see Taker so beyond his glorious best.
If Cena beat Taker he would be booed out of the place and if Taker beat Cena, Cena would then be even further away from his record breaking title. I just can't see a benefit for either wrestler.
I hate to say it, but I can see Cena muscling into the Styles/ Nakamura match.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Mar 2018 11:04:11
I don't want to see Taker face anyone but Cena at this point.

I keen to let Owens face Zayne at Wrestlemania, their story has been incredible, its almost a shame that at his point they've come full circle, I'd let them be in a tag match this year and have the turn midway through next year to build to a big match at 35, its going to be swept under the rug at 34.

I will be surprised if Rey gets a featured match at Mania, perhaps a run in on whomever wins the CW title, or a Andre Battle Royal spot, but surly not a singles match.

I don't see Corbyn or Ziggler making the show either unless they make some sort of 6 pack challenge for the US title.

Agree1 Disagree1

04 Mar 2018 14:03:30
I wouldn't say its lazy booking, its always a problem with the PPV's in between RR and Wm. Most of us have at least a good idea of what the Mania card will be so it can be fairly easy to call the bigger matches at Elimination Chamber and Fastlane. Personally I think Fastlane will be ok and I'm quite looking forward to Mania. I made my peace a long time ago with the fact that it is going to be Roman going over Brock in the main event. I've got no beef with Reigns, other than I don't like Superman booking, but they've calmed down with that the last year or so. It will probably be a good match and we are probably getting Taker v Cena which is about 5 years too late but will still have a big match feel. We are also getting Styles v Nakamura, which i'm guessing is the match people are looking forward to most. I also.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Mar 2018 14:22:57
I also think the (likely) triple threats for the IC Title and the Smackdown tag titles should be good.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Mar 2018 16:55:23
Well, Cena won't face Mysterio as Rey suffered a bad injury torn biceps -that will require surgery.
I agree with Monkeyman that any match between Cena and Taker is way too late. I remember all too well how slow Taker looked against Reigns at Mania 33 which was incredibly sad to watch.
Cena can still give us a memorable match. I just don't think it should be with the Undertaker.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Mar 2018 10:47:48
I have read in a few places that Taker started DDP yoga after his post Mania surgeries last year and is allegedly feeling it again. Obviously that's kind of speculation, but word is this might not even be his last one if he can find a new level of fitness.

I am happy with Mania all in, it nearly always delivers fr beginning to end.

It is a shame that the card is so predictable years out, but that's what comes from 30 years of watching the show, and reading everyone's theories online.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Feb 2018 10:19:36
That must have been the most predictable PPV of all time. Not a single surprise.
I know that both this and Fastlane are just set ups for Mania but a PPV deserves a couple of swerves you just weren't expecting but this had none.
Having said that, both the chamber matches were a lot of fun and were worth the watch.
Unfortunately everything else wasn't.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Feb 2018 11:40:30
totally agree one of the most predictable of all time.
as for the last match that was the most predictable, reigns wins
(which we all knew anyway) with strowman looking strong.

i suppose now we have to accept that reigns will be leaving mania as champ and that is that, I just hope it ain't the last match at mania because as I said before it will be another mania ending with reigns getting booed out the arena.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Feb 2018 12:14:00
I thought the men’s match was decent, its just a shame everyone knew how it was going to end for the last two years. The really made all 7 guys feel like a big deal, and suddenly I can see Miz, Balor, Rollins, and Elias being top Raw guys.

I put this down to the idea that they were actually in a match where the winner took a great prize, instead of people being locked in to one feud, there are 7 guys feuding over the title. It’ll be a shame if they now just let Brock and Reigns talk about the Universal Championship until Mania. These 7 were all in for it a few days ago, I’d keep them all chasing it right up until Summerslam at least.

Create the idea we don’t know who the next UC will be, assuming RR will be carrying the belt, instead of being able to predict who will beat him and when, you could have it in constant jeopardy.

My only complaint was that there wasn’t a killer move to beat Braun, they built him up, he took 5 guys finishes back to back mid match and kicked out, then two spears beat him. I’d have liked to have seen something bigger or more special pin the big boy.

I was surprised by Alexa winning, I was sure they’d manoeuvre Banks to fight Auska in the showpiece match.

As for HHH and Steph vs Ronda and Angle I really can’t believe they’d put that on at Mania, maybe I am wrong, but I don’t hold any of these 4 in the regard that WWE seem to. HHH is the man, and if given a proper story I’d accept him squeezing on to the Mania card, I have no desire to see Angle wrestle again after his stint with the Shield, Ronda is a big star, she will surly just beat up Steph, another I have no interest in seeing in ring.

The fact WWE won’t let there be any physicality between the genders means its basically two matches.

The saving grace could be Ronda making HHH tap, if they’d allow it.

28 Feb 2018 15:33:27
The Chamber PPV created a very strong argument for the proposal that PPVs not being 'brand' exclusive and RAW and Smackdown wrestlers appearing on all PPVs Outside of the Chamber match itself, the matches offered were incredibly weak.
A worn out Matt Hardy in a watered down incarnation of his broken self against the stuck record that is Bray Wyatt in a feud which hasn't even come close to catching the imagination.
But my main bugbear yet again are the tag teams. Sheamus and Cesaaro are top professionals and do their best to hold up what must be the weakest tag division in history. Titus Worldwide is the best opposition they can find?
I know the Revival are on RAW as are Gallows and Anderson but neither of these teams is being given the spotlight. The tag teams is the one area Smackdown beats RAW hands down.
The Usos, New Day, Gable and Benjamin, The Bludgeon Brothers, even Breezango are better than most on RAW.
If Sheamus and Cesaro are going to be kept together, they deserve better opposition and Smackdown could provide it.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Feb 2018 16:06:35
The Raw tag division isn't up to much, there is a decent argument to making a united tag team title, and having tag teams be able to have matches on PPV cross brand, to try and bring the titles back to their show.

Cesaro and Sheamus could easily be the next best 2 guys that didn't get in the Chamber match. You've got 9 big stars there.

i don't get why wwe are so determined for him to be the guy, no one hardly likes him and he will continuously get booed no matter what.

and I did say on here a while ago that the shield reunion was only to really try and get him over with the fans, and I also said that it'll all go back to normal with him being booed etc.

It's always nice to be surprised and what a joy it was to watch the gauntlet match on RAW.
No long speeches in the ring, no confrontation as each participant says what he will do, clean eliminations and close to 2 hours of intriguing wrestling.
That Strowman won was not a surprise, probably a consolation for when Reigns wins the chamber, but Rollins looked brilliant, Miz his weasely best and Elias got one over a big name again.
I really hope that the WWE takes note that different isn't bad and that they needn't follow the same tired formula all the time.
