Could do with a little advice here. I started watching Lucia underground but I'm not sure if I just start from the latest episode or go right to the very first and watch it from when it aired?

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Feb 2016 19:48:42
I've just started watching from the start of this series without seeing the previous series as well. Managed to pick up the story lines, heels and faces and general theme after the first couple of episodes so you should be fine.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Feb 2016 20:06:13
I've not saw All of season 1 it's a lot of viewing but I watched a bit so I was familiar with the characters. So I'm just going to watch it from Season 2 Season 3s confirmed so there's always time to go back.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Feb 2016 10:12:41
A went on YouTube n there's a video on youtube with a kind of highlight reel of season 1. Its 45 mins long. Watched it and it told me everything a needed to know before a watched season 2.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Feb 2016 19:42:40
I have just downloaded the first season now, I'll watch the first episode tonight and give some feedback tomorrow.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Feb 2016 21:08:33
Enjoy ed I must say the 1st episode isn't the best it sets the tone though the way they kick off with 2 legends. If you can get to Aztec Warfare, Trios Tag Tournament, Anything with Pentagon Jr Also there's a 4.5 star match somewhere in there which consumes an entire episode between Prince Puma and Johnny Mundo. I don't know if I'm correct here or not but I'm looking Forward to Zayn V Joe on NXT I've not read spoilers but I can do math, I heard Joe V Zayn takes up an entire episode of NXT that would be great can anyone confirm this?

What's happened to grado he out the picture since losing the title?

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Feb 2016 23:40:40
He's on Tour with TNA all though he got the Fired Briefcase in that stupid thing they do.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Feb 2016 19:24:18
A saw him get that! he finished with the icw?

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Feb 2016 21:03:33
No mate he's not been there as often which is ironic because that's what he was saying about Drew when he was campaigning for the title. Grados homes still ICW fans have turned and are grudging him his Dream wrestling in America. When he lost the title it was one of the most amazing things I've ever seen the atmosphere in that place was unreal the crowd was split it was tense people were arguing and fighting in the Crowd, One of the best experiences I've ever had at any sort of event. Grados still a draw he will be back and will be a big part of the Hydro Show I Imagine. He is Facing Drew in London on the upcoming ICW tour. ICW fans are so passionate they really resent people leaving for TNA if it was NXT or ROH looking at these top stars they wouldn't be happy but more understanding i'm sure.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Feb 2016 22:13:28
Cheers mate I've not been a big follower saw little bits online and was just wondering if he was moving on!

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Feb 2016 16:30:40
Rumours are flying around that Cena may finally be allowed to turn heel. His sales of merchandise has dropped dramatically (he still shifts the most though) and it is believed that his once little fans are now getting bigger and older and no longer want his shirts and action figures.
The WWE are also concerned that their current favourite, Reigns, will not be able to shift nearly enough to come close to filling the shortfall.
Who knows? A Cena screwjob on Reigns at Mania or even at Fastlane.

For those of you that don't like to pay for the network, Modbro has a live stream to the network. Obviously can't access the library but I watched the rumble on it and it was perfect. Only available on android devices but you have to Google it as it's not on the play store. Has hundreds of channels for free. Sly sports, BT etc.

Read an interesting article recently about a possible contributing cause to the spate of recent injuries.
In it the writer theorised that the WWE no longer train proper ring psychology and instead promote power wrestlers like Sheamus and Ryback who just spot move after move and cannot take into account less physical opponents - Sheamus inflicted Bryan's last concussion and Ryback injured Punk in two separate matches.
It was also put forward that less emphasis is put on training by former wrestlers and instead it is placed on writers who don't fully understand the pressures they are placing on the participants of their storylines. A prime example of this being Michael Hayes who keeps pushing for more TLC matches involving bigger and less athletic wrestlers.
I think this does have some credit to it but is not the whole reason.
Thoughts anyone?

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Feb 2016 14:47:37
I think injuries always happened, but now the WWE is such a big corporate entity they can't get away with "Work, or go home" attitude.

They are forced to look after the talent a lot better, I am sure Mick Foley wrestled with brain injuries as bad as Bryans, but back then his choice was go out there, or go hungry.

The workload is as high as its ever been, the matches are more athletically driven that they've ever been.

The only real answer is more wrestlers, allowing for more downtime for the workers. I am sure NXT will in time provide that.

Just as an example get on the network and watch something like Natural Disasters vs LOD, and it will be obvious why those guys were not injuring each other all the time. They sat in holds for 15 minutes of every match.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Feb 2016 00:32:04
Alot of it is the schedule. The last 4-5 years, the top guys are wrestling 210-220 documented matches a year. The last time it was that high was the beginning of the 90's when guys like Curt Henning and Bret Hart were doing +200.

They also have several stretches each year, where they're constantly doing gimmick matches either during a tour or series of live events. Last year between the end of June and the end of August. Ambrose and Rollins, just at live events, wrestled each other in 14 Street Fight matches, 3 Cage matches, and a No DQ match.

Natalya's fans recently celebrated her having wrestled 800 matches in her career. I knew that Ambrose was the 2015 workhorse champion with 218 matches. So I checked to see how many matches he's wrestled for WWE. He's already almost to 800, and is on pace to be at around 825-850 by his 5th anniversary with WWE in May.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Feb 2016 11:11:25
I appreciate there is a need to build an under belly of support for these guys, but I think they need more recovery time.

I think if you worked two months at the current schedule you should get a month off of house shows and live events. Sure it would hurt their pay a little, but would be better for their physical and mental health.

Work 50 nights in 60, then over the next 30 you only come in for Monday and Tuesday, get taped, then go home for 5 days.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Feb 2016 16:20:37
I think these are all contributing factors. The bigger, less athletic wrestlers, the quicker matches and the workload.
Like both Jabbles and Bessex have said the workload is enormous and the demands on wrestlers are increasing, not just in the ring but around the world as the WWE spreads it's tentacles ever further.
Along with the need for more recovery time, I think that the introduction of a cruiserweight division (as has been suggested many times on this site) would also help. A match for example, between Kalisto and Ryback not only looks lop-sided but also leaves the smaller man open to injury.
It would also increase the variety of matches and hopefully sloww down the reliance on bigger is better.

Just saw the video of Titus Oneil grabbing Vinces arm after Raw on Monday he has been suspended 60 days. Vince McMahon can F*** off. He did Grab Vibce & have no idea why he did so but still pathetic from WWE. Especially when Titus brings them nothing but good publicity. He seems like the ultimate stand up guy on the Roster & I'm pretty sure his career is now more or less done. Good one Vince. Ahole.

Agree1 Disagree0

11 Feb 2016 10:12:59
Titus is pretty average, but if you wanted a black John Cena that you can push as a friendly face of WWE he was/ is perfect.

I'm not sure people know the context of the incident, I have seen the clip and on its own it doesn't look like much, but Titus may have been warned previously?

Vince might be toughing it out having had is aging arm pulled out of socket or something.

On the face of it, it was nothing, but the WWE doesn't deliberately go out of its way to create bad press and bury their poster boys, so I assume its a build up.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Feb 2016 10:55:50
WWE have confirmed that this was not scripted and are acting like idiots. Titus is as wooden as a tree, but seems a decent bloke. His ban has been reduced to 60 days and he will still miss Mania.
It looked like nothing and it is yet another example of rule 1 - 'thou shalt not piss off a McMahon'. Vince is so up his own arse. Out if touch idiot.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Feb 2016 12:51:25
Am no a fan of Titus but it's pretty brutal to treat um like that (black history month aswell) we all know if roman had done that it would have bn brushed under their rug.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Feb 2016 14:51:51
Surly black history month doesn't mean a free pass to anyone that happens to be black?

This is a PR nightmare, and for what looked like nothing making a guy who's star appeared to be on the rise miss the biggest show of the year seems petty.

I would only have expected him to have a decent showing in the Andre Battle Royal anyway, but its what they work all year for.

Imagine how Stardust feels, he's been working a (crap) program with him for months, and now he has gone, just hours after he put over Adam Rose.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Feb 2016 00:40:51
According to Wrestling Observer Live, "Titus O'Neil was suspended because Vince McMahon wanted to "send a message" to the locker room to be professional. Apparently there have been issues with wrestlers not following the rules lately. "

Agree1 Disagree0

12 Feb 2016 16:24:21
Not obeying the rules? You mean there actually is a do not piss off a McMahon as I suggested earlier?
Not getting drunk, not taking drugs, not following a story-line, not being racist, not being sexist - these are sensible rules. Not touching Vince without an appointment is a stupid one.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Feb 2016 18:11:40
For you guys interested in watching Lucha Underground. I watch it on my Ps4 from WatchWrestling.uno & use the Daily Motion links so you should be able to get it straight from Daily motion on a laptop or console maybe even DailyMotion app.

Who will be the 'next' Daniel Bryan? Someone who comes from left field and is a success in spite of the WWE but because of popular support?
Owens is well on his way and Cesaro was before his injury.
It is no coincidence that they came from NXT and could build up popular support and like Bryan, Owens has been around the block. Maybe Aries can follow suit.
I am hoping there is someone somewhere who we haven't heard of who will blow us all away.

Agree1 Disagree0

09 Feb 2016 23:10:07
Bayley.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Feb 2016 07:42:47
Bayley is money for WWE kids love her adults love her there Golden with her. When Joe signed I never envisioned him getting what he deserves in WWE and that's to be at the very top I hope that happens.

Agree1 Disagree0

10 Feb 2016 12:09:39
Cesaro and Ambrose are the that seem to be building that "give them the ball" support.

Guys like Reigns, Batista, Orton, and Cena helped build Bryan because the fans began to resent the idea these guys were being kept on top.

Perhaps RR and Stroman can be pivotal in the crowds getting behind Ambrose?

Agree1 Disagree1

10 Feb 2016 16:01:24
A would have loved to see ziggler get that sort of push after survivor series the fans love him as much as bryan imo does anyone mind the pop he got when his tune hit to cash in?

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Feb 2016 16:17:08
I think AJ Styles could definitely do it, if he can get over organically (which I think he will) and he can have some decent feuds then he do it. The big question is can he be as versatile as Bryan was on the mic? DB wasn't great on the stick but he got loads better during his timw art WWE and did well whether he was playing the comedy role, the underdog face role or the bullying jealous boyfriend role. If AJ can show the same versatility then he could be the 'next D Bryan' (for want of a better term)

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Feb 2016 22:02:09
AJ Styles
Sami Zayn
Chad Gable
Tyler Breeze
Tyson Kidd (If he can return)

Possible future options:
Rich Swann
Jesse Sorensen
Kyle O'Reilly
Dalton Castle
Will Ferrara.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Feb 2016 10:44:41
Push dean ambrose and cesaro when back. By far best faces. Kevin owens should get biggest push for heels.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Feb 2016 10:57:25
Don't think AJ counts - the WWE have been trumpeting his appearances and while the crowd are all over him, it is not down to them that he is getting hype.

Agree1 Disagree0

11 Feb 2016 14:55:10
I think they are moving with the natural excitement of AJ, he is already over because he's so well known, but for once the WWE isn't killing it to build up a creation of their own.

I'm sure he wouldn't have come to NXT to be BK Fashion.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Feb 2016 11:21:42
Rm8 a took ye up on lucha underground mate. Watched 2 full episodes of this series and av got to admit urs brilliant. A match between fenix and king cuerto was as good as anything av seen recently and the rock was right stating that its gritty the segments in it r like stuff out of movies lol Starting to wish a watched more of season 1.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Feb 2016 16:50:19
I'm the exact same Haggis mate I wish I had saw the Trios Tag tournament last season. I love how Mil Muertes sits in the Throne ruling over the Temple. Did you see Justin Gabriel?
As PJ the Darewolf Black he's awesome and his look in this character is great. Be nice to see Rey show up on it soon too. That Gift of the Gods Championship belt is absolutely stunning. It's hard to get into watching a bunch of Guys in masks but when they're as talented as that it's great viewing. The Vignettes are out of this world all though I'm not a fan of the action movie fight scenes in them.

Agree0 Disagree1

09 Feb 2016 17:08:37
Aye it's like nothing av watched before its a breath of fresh air compared to wwe lol. Aye a seen um fighting the guy mack was it? And mil muertes looks badass up there and catrina looks like one evil b*tch. A went back and watched ultima lucha the season finale. Vampiro vs pentagon jr was a pretty hardcore match and did u notice how the wrestlers don't hold back when there beating up on the women? A seen a bit with big ryck (ezekial jackson) slamming a women down as hard as he would a guy a few other times it went on.

Agree1 Disagree0

09 Feb 2016 17:43:26
Where do u guys watch it?

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Feb 2016 17:43:57
I've Went back and watched that also. Loved the start of season 2 with Vampiro in the mental hospital after that match great Stuff. Pentagon Jrs such a good character and style that arm breaker is awesome.

Agree1 Disagree0

09 Feb 2016 18:14:19
I caught the tail end of last season and loving the first two episodes of this season. And always happy to see Johny Mundo :)

Agree1 Disagree0

09 Feb 2016 18:40:56
Amazon firestick Diego if u know anyone that jailbreaks them it has a sort of wrestling on the addons. Aye that was mental Rm8 that actually made me want to watch what I had missed on the previous season. Total agree aswell pentagon jr is somethin else like. And Johnny Mundo is a phenomenal wrestler along with puma. A also thought son of havoc was a good wrestler.

Agree1 Disagree0

09 Feb 2016 19:13:52
The match with son of havoc. Angelico and evalise was amazing.

Agree2 Disagree0

09 Feb 2016 19:30:10
Ano mate couldn't agree more. Ivelisse held her own big time aswell.

Agree1 Disagree0

10 Feb 2016 07:48:13
I get it on My android box or WatchWrestling. WWE were interested in Angelico he has it all. That High Flying spot from last season is one of the best things I've ever saw in wrestling. The women have been great so far on LU just makes you wonder how good Sasha Banks could be. As great as Lucha Underground is if you guys aren't watching ICW Yet Yous are mad. We have Wrestlers just as good as these guys on our own soil. Maybe not luchadors all the same but British Wrestling could not be in better shape right now and that goes for a good few promotions down south aswell.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Feb 2016 12:10:58
I'm interested in giving this a go.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Feb 2016 15:59:14
It's worth it mate its a mirror image of wwe imo am sure it's on tonight it's every Wednesday if a mind right but am no sure how many places there is to watch it mate.

Agree0 Disagree0

 

 

09 Feb 2016 11:04:28
The crowd during DB's retirement speech was amazing. Can anybody remember the last time such a pop was given during an event or PPV for that matter. I hope that DB doesn't do any further damage to his brain and he & Brie have a long healthy life together.

Agree2 Disagree0

09 Feb 2016 15:49:06
Here here scouse the mans got to do what's best for him and his family. Although he, ll be gone from our screens we, ll never forget the Fantastic matches and years of enjoyment he gave us THANK YOU BRYAN DANIELSON.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Feb 2016 16:57:04
I've ben conditioned to believe it can't just be over. If he is really hurt I hope the WWE pay him out his remaining contract.

I still hold hope that its an upscaled "Mark Henry Swerve" and in a month Owen's will powerbomb Brie, ten minutes after she announces she's already pregnant, leading to a monster unsanctioned match at Mania.

Lets be honest the WWE wouldn't have the foresight to leave him on the side-lines to build to such a situation.

and sadder still we will have to come to terms with the idea he's really done.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Feb 2016 19:58:38
I'm gutted he's gone, that crowd was amazing for him. IMO he's the most over superstar since The Rock and Austin. He made a connection with the crowd and his push was organic. VKM should take not for future reference (he wont, but he should)

All the best to Daniel and Brie, it'd be good if he could still be Commissioner or a face Authority figure to replace the Authority (they need to be gone by SummerSlam at the latest IMO)

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Feb 2016 12:14:25
I'd be happy to see him on commentary or something.

I'm sure he will get a legends deal that will keep him on our screens.

The network offers plenty of opportunities as well. The WWE should buy up some old footage and have a Daniel Bryan: The best of the Indies show. I see him telling the stories of guys on the road to the wwe through footage of them fighting in village halls.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Feb 2016 19:05:11
Daniel Bryan announces he's retiring on raw tonight, a work or genuine?

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Feb 2016 23:46:08
Looks real.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Feb 2016 06:56:31
I was there for it, very real, very sad.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Feb 2016 09:39:56
I got up early to watch it this morning assuming this was going to be the build to his Mania program, but sadly it seems legit.

The poor bloke has a permanent brain injury, and obviously can't carry on.

He has had a great run, and I hope he has a fortune left on his deal.

The episode of Raw where he turned on the Wyatt's in the cage was one of the last times I got properly lost in it.

Agree1 Disagree0

09 Feb 2016 11:25:28
A did the exact same. Gutted for him like but a just think years on the indies and his style might have took its toll. Hopefully vince learns from bryans wwe career and continues to push the wee wrestlers who deserve the push.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Feb 2016 15:17:12
Good luck to him. Classy exit from a good guy.

Agree1 Disagree0

09 Feb 2016 16:59:48
If Vince and the WWE take one thing from this let's hope its to push a guy when he's on fire. Holding someone back for a bigger pay off is great if they ever get there. Bryan had 18 months at the peak, but they derailed him a few times on his climb.

Agree2 Disagree0

08 Feb 2016 17:42:46
Daniel Bryan apparently gave his notice to WWE and they refused to accept it, he is scheduled to on RAW tonight. I reckon this is a work and he has been cleared already.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Feb 2016 18:59:31
Apparently he's retiring. Not sure if I believe it or its another Mark Henry swerve.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Feb 2016 19:43:11
I don't know Scouse. Beardo has never been my favourite, but I can admire his skills and work rate and he deserves better than to just fade out. I hope it is a work, but I have my doubts. Which is probably thee whole point of his announcement anyway.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Feb 2016 20:17:51
While I hope it is a work as I'm a big fan of Bryan, the way it's being reported by other sources I. E ring of honour and Forbes list makes me wonder if it is intact genuine as I don't think these sites would be so quick to report if it was a work. But then that could be what they want us to think. If it is a work then surely he'll set up a mania match tonight but who with? Who's available that would A) make sense and B) would want to see.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Feb 2016 20:50:40
Well I hope he says that while he is medically cleared, he has achieved everything in the business. Then the gong hits.

Like COYS says, not my favourite but I think him and taker could have a classic. Perhaps a double retirement match?

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Feb 2016 21:31:17
Not looking like a work online. I was wrong.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Feb 2016 00:20:23
Can't stand him but have to respect his effort he puts in.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Feb 2016 09:42:00
I assumed it was going to be a work, but clearly he has been saving this announcement for Washington.

Tat was a tasteful way to end, I hope his passion rubs of on a few.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Feb 2016 19:53:04
I'm gutted that it wasn't a work and he's had to retire, he's pretty much been my favourite wrestler since the Attitude Era/ Ruthless Aggression era. I wish him and Brie all the best for the future.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Feb 2016 17:15:26
Hi guys was wondering who you think would win the triple threat match I'm thinking it could be ambrose by back stabbing reins what are your thoughts.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Feb 2016 17:33:17
I'm really hoping its Ambrose. I just don't really want to see Roman V HHH or Brock for that matter. If Bray comes out and attacks Lesnar its just crap because a month ago it was anyone but Roman a year before that he was costing Ambrose Titles.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Feb 2016 17:35:26
A rehash of the Rollins story, seems logical as it completely lacks creativity on their part.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Feb 2016 19:40:33
I would much prefer it if Reigns screwed Ambrose. It would give Reigns the heel turn many of us are crying out for, would allow Ambrose to continue with his outsider act and would allow HHH to pass the title to Reigns and set up a Reigns/ Ambrose Mania match.

Agree1 Disagree0

09 Feb 2016 09:44:22
I'd like to see Reigns accept HHH's help to win the match, HHH hand the belt over the next night on Raw, then have Ambrose and Lesnar fight for the right to face him, Ambrose wins it at Mania.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Feb 2016 12:54:13

Welcome back mate. You haven't missed too much from the squared circle to debate on as it has just been Reigns, Ambrose and injuries.
Would like to hear your view on how Owens is progressing and if you can see many plus points for Mania.
On another topic, while I wish Styles all the best and love watching him, he ain't no spring chicken and it is foolish of so many to bank all their hopes for the future on him. The combined ages when he fought Jericho was 83.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Feb 2016 16:25:30
I have been reading sporadically, but found myself frustrated by the fact I've lost the email I set this up with.

I'm still a huge fan of Kevin Owen's heel work. He gets it, he's not trying to be too cool, he's being as horrible as the current product will allow. Pretty sure he is the ideal answer on how to get any face over with the kids and marks. The WWE are keeping him strong I'm sure he will be n the min event by this time next year.

Styles doesn't have time to fart around and requires back to back feuds, he could easily have a great 3 year run near the top. I think we'd all love to see him work with Jericho, Owens, Zayne, Cesaro, Neville, just to name a few. They could keep him busy and help him build a quick fire career in the WWE. Very glad they brought him in with the fanfare of being the hottest free agent in the world.

Mania doesn't need many pro's, its always awesome, they always give more, they commit more money and more tv time to creating matches and by the time the shows done everyone always says its the best PPV of the year (Give or take) .

The WWE have so many of the top guys out that they would be forgiven for not giving the greatest show ever, but they do have Lesnar, Rock, Taker, HHH, Riegns, Ambrose, Bray, Owens, Neville, Goldust, Stardust, the best tag roster for years, best Diva's division ever, and the ability to call up 5 ready made over stars from NXT if they're needed.

I think a monkey should be able to book a great show. Looking forward to it.

How I would use HBK at Mania is have him doing an in ring segment before an intercontinental title triple match between AJ Styles v Kevin Owens v (mystery opponent). I would have Shawn talking about how he overcome a career threatening injury as did the third participant. I would have HBK talking about how he knows this wrestler very well and even trained him and then the crowd erupts with "Yes" chants before DB stands at the top of the ramp. I would have KO as champion leading into the match as DA has been moved to the top tier and is facing Brock. I would have DB pin KO and create another memorable Mania moment.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Feb 2016 10:42:25
As much as a good moment that would be. I don't think Daniel Bryan should be given any titles. There's plenty guys who could hold that IC title and make it mean something. I don't think Dean Ambrose should lose it Before mania in a daft match or on Raw taints his Run especially if he doesn't win the World Title. It's looking to me like Joe will be the next NXT Champion. I would have him, Balor or AJ win the Intercontinental Title next.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Feb 2016 12:37:00
Daniel Bryan doesn't deserve to win a title at Mania based on this years performance.

I'd be happy to see him have a match, but it should be something that doesn't interfere with the runs of the current guys that have been competing all year.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Feb 2016 11:58:21
I still think wwe may need to follow boxing, where they have different champions representing them I. e. ibf. For instance the U. S. Championship doesn't work in my opinion as surely it should be the best in America. Intercontinental the same concept, I would swap either one for the cruiser weight, as that opens it up for guys like Neville who is currently sat in the ever diluted mid card. Nxt, smackdown and raw could have an individual champion. Then it makes a lot of wrestlers current quickly. Rather than what we have currently. ppv's could be split with two each per brand and the big four where everyone can be used.

Agree1 Disagree1

06 Feb 2016 13:09:40
I agree. It also daft imo that the us champ isn't always american ie del rio and kalisto rusev the cruiserweight title would b awesome to bring back so much under used smaller wrestlers on the roster neville vs styles would be a great way to re debut it. But hornswaggle was the last champs if he comes back he might have to defend it lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Feb 2016 18:44:56
Kalisto is American and except for a few people, the U. S. champ was at least living in America when they had the title.

It probably would still be a good idea for them to get rid of regional names for their secondary titles though, since they are trying to be a global brand.

I would avoid a weight based title system. I think they should just have defined importance to their titles. WWE title - main event. IC - upper midcard. U. S. - midcard. Maybe add a title like the TV was in WCW, for the lower midcard - lowercard.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Feb 2016 19:58:05
Jables, if they don't bring in the cruiserweight again, which I don't think they will. Shouldn't they drop the heavyweight out of the main title, as it holds no relevance. Something like that should only be there if there's weight divisions.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Feb 2016 20:03:04
The United States championship was won by several non Americans before rusev del Rio etc! I don't see how it can only be Americans that win think back to the European title was on the go it was won mostly by non Europeans.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Feb 2016 20:49:41
Oncearedalwaysared, I think they should drop the 'Heavyweight' from the name of the WWE World Championship. When you have a "billed as" 425 pound weight difference between your heaviest and lightest champion, there shouldn't be connotations of a weight class in the name of the title.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Feb 2016 12:44:51
The US Title was never finer than when Beniot, Finely, and Booker T were competing for it. 2 out of 3 foreigners.

WWE just need to define the titles more and make the champions more relevant. I see know reason why a fearless face IC champion who is feuding with the authority wouldn't have to defend it every week? Ambrose should have a match on Raw and Smackdown every week as the title isn't just a prop.

A cruiserweight title could be added easily, defended as the main event of Main Event or Superstars.

The US could be Smackdown exclusive and have a constant dedicated feud for great wrestlers, make it an X-division title without ever saying it.

Its important to me they don't bring the WHC back, it watered down what being the Champion is, guys like Dolf and Mark Henry have never been multiple time World Champions really. Guys like Big Show shouldn't be able to say he's a ten time champ, because he held the B title 5 times on Smackdown.

Being World Champ shouldn't count after WWE acquired that belt.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Feb 2016 14:38:29
Aye fair point guys but don't see the point in it being a us title if it's gona be fought over by guys from all round the world it might aswell b merged with the ic title and bring back a cruiserweight or hardcore belt to replace It. It's like boxing the European champ is from europe a don't remember a non European fighter holding that belt in my memory.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Feb 2016 15:09:43
It's just a name of a title and means next to nothing. You don't have to be American to win the US Grand Prix nor British to win the Open.
It just plays to certain stereotypes and allows a USA chant when a foreigner holds the US title. Cena milked this to bits and a lot of the time it was actually entertaining.
I am all for a cruiserweight title, but the hardcore has seen it's day with the current direction the WWE is going in.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Feb 2016 16:37:33
Agree with COYS, you can't make a Hardcore title these days, as you can't really have a hardcore match. You can't do proper chair shot so a barb wire flaming table is probably out.

The US Title is the champion of the United States, I would say anyone competing for it on US soil is a legit champion, but the US title has no parameters for who can compete for it. InterContinental is almost another word for the whole world anyway.

I'd like to see more people in network special tournaments. Just have a Cruiserweight trophy and pull in guys from NXT, Tag Teams, and the main roster to have a 3 hour show, with a knockout tournament for guys under 225lbs. Would love to see Xavier Woods fight Enzo for the right to take on Neville or Sin Cara.

I hadn't watched it Since Kevin Owens was defending his NXT title on it. I've watched them all from Mauro Ranallo joined it's been a good wrestling show mate. Jericho V AJ on it again next week building it up to be a better match than the one they had on Raw.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Feb 2016 18:54:21
It's weird seeing Ryback in normal gear after having the singlet for so long. He does look a lot more legit though.

I've been enjoying Smackdown as well, but they really, really, really, need to quit doing the fake crowd noise.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Feb 2016 12:48:10
I'm glad for Ryback, he looks much better in the trunks, and Goldberg isn't a bad comparison for someone so average.

They could just as soon be saying he looks like a Basham, one of the Pitbulls, or Stone Cold on drugs.

People want to chant Goldberg, screw them, be like Goldberg, he was great. The people they want you to appeal to (Kids) won't remember Goldberg anyway, he's been retired for ten freaking years.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Feb 2016 11:21:12
It's official all it took was a decent commentator & a bit of Wrestling. Smackdown now blows Raw out of the Water. I have enjoyed it for the past 3 or 4 weeks where I've been disappointed in Raw especially this weeks was shocking. It's blatantly Obvious Mauro & King make the best commentary team in Wrestling since King & JR. The Three man commentary should be dropped on Smackdown for a bit. Nothing actually against Byron. I actually get pissed off now Listening to Michael Cole call Raw & PPVs the guy let's the product down so much. I like Rich Brennan & Corey Graves when they were on NXT they should be moved up & NXT should start working on some new guys or girls.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Feb 2016 19:18:45
I've enjoyed the last couple of RAWs. They would of been a lot better with different announcers. JBL and Cole haven't even been that bad recently but their voices have become so synonamous with awfulness, that they illicit a negative Pavlovian response every time they speak.

Starting with Raw the night after WrestleMania what are your predictions leading up to the following WrestleMania?
Mine are:
Dean Ambrose champion
Seth Rollins reclaiming title
John Cena title 16
New Day disbanding
Cruiser Weight belt reintroduction
AJ Styles IC champion
Daniel Bryan returns full time
Austin Aries WWE arrival
Kurt Angle returns

05 Feb 2016 22:49:20
Austin Aries is in nxt all ready
Hope for ambrose to be the wwe champion.
To early for seth rollins
New day will turn face
Bryan is a good possibility depending who you listen to.
I think the bullet (balor) club will start have been seeing a lot more bullet club tshirts on raw even the new day promo with the boy dancing had a bullet club tee on.

I really hope Airies gets up onto the main Roster. WWE needs to act Fast and create real Stars there cannot be anymore NXT champs as good as Neville who go to the main Roster and do nothing. His moveset is so Dilluted everyone thins he's just moonsaults and Red Arrows. The guy is one of the best small wrestlers I've ever seen. Could have easily been booked to become a great underdog Champion. The beauty of the Roster now is that there's so many Great Wrestlers it should be the easiest it's ever been to Restore Credibility to the IC Title. I cannot believe the Guys in WWE at the moment and all likelihood suggests we are going to be stuck With HHH V Roman Reigns in the biggest Wrestlemania Main event supposedly Ever. It's a slap in the Face.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Feb 2016 20:11:44
Hopefully:
-New announcers for RAW.
-New intro music for RAW and Smackdown.
-Smackdown goes live.
-Less replays/ recaps/ rewinds, video packages, and corporate shilling.
-Anything and everything that involves talking, is allowed to be more organic and less scripted.
-An evolution in in-ring style.
-Better storytelling.
-An authority figure that isn't a part owner of the WWE.
-More acknowledgment of current events and pop culture.
-They start living up to their name and be World Wrestling Entertainment.

{Ed023's Note - I'd like to add that Raw should be dropped back to 2 hours and please stop having ad breaks during a match or a wrestlers entrance and also I'd love if they got rid of the PPVs like TLC, Hell in a Cell etc and at least put more effort into the titantrons at PPVs}

05 Feb 2016 19:56:15
Does anyone apart from me think that HHH won't be in the main event at Mania? Apart from a number 30 entry in the Rumble he hasn't done anything for months.
HHH in the main event just doesn't make sense and surely he cannot be that self-indulgent.

Agree0 Disagree1

05 Feb 2016 21:44:12
It shows how the desperation has set in at WWE HQ. HHH is only champion due to the amount of injuries suffered and if Seth Rollins was fit he would have dropped the belt to Roman Reigns and regained it at the Rumble. I would have Dean Ambrose as champion. John Cena may be fit in time for Wrestle Mania and may face Undertaker.

Agree1 Disagree0

06 Feb 2016 01:14:40
He will b main eventing I liked hhh for years but it's pathetic now why he is putting over reigns I will never know. I hate the idea of making it so obvious. Just shows how much faith vince has in the current roster.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Feb 2016 09:10:53
That's my biggest problem too Haggis. They have totally telegraphed the end of Mania with Reigns going over. They don't even have a cash in the swerve us with this year. So unless they get really creative this Mania will end really badly. I've nothing against Reigns personally and I wish him well but his current push isn't working because it's forced. Clearly they were building to Rollins v HHH but Reigns has taken his place due to injury. The only way it would work for me is to a have screwy finish where there's no clear winner at Fastlane so it becomes triple threat at Mania, HHH v Reigns v Ambrose, it looks like Ambrose has the win but Reigns turns on him and actually helps HHH retain, HHH then gives him the belt as a reward on Raw and thus Reigns is finally the heel he is clearly more suited to being. Sets up nice feud with Ambrose moving forward too.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Feb 2016 13:14:41
A wish u where employed as a booker for wwe haha sounds a lot better than what we're going to get I'm with 100% about reigns a don't mind him whn he's badass but forcing him doon our throats does not work at all mate a think we all agree on that. Let him go heel is all a think he can do. The fans r turning in him the same wae they dun cena Becos it's all to similer and repetitive.

I still say HHH is awesome.

I absolutely don't mind him holding the title until or even past Mania.

It would be a sweet victory for everyone if Roman puts on a glorious losing effort at Mania. People wouldn't believe HHH had won again and sympathy for RR would grow.

HHH could hold the title for Bryan or Rollins.

Does anyone Watch Lucha Underground? I watched about the 1st 8 episodes of the 1st season & I've watched the 1st 2 in season 2. I can't make my mind up whether I love it or Hate it it's so weird. Prince Puma & Pentagon Jr are absolutely unbelievable that i'm sure of. If WWE keep going the way they are. It shouldn't be long until we see a couple of Guys come from Lucha Underground. Anyone I've heard them being interested in seem hard to pry away. They could be building something really special there.

Agree1 Disagree0

05 Feb 2016 18:46:31
Puma is devastating av saw a cupple episodes but not got rite into it but I think I'll give it a bash tbh can't b any worse than wwe the now the only decent Hing is styles and ambrose it the minute and that's only because styles is new and fresh 6 months vince will have him as a ziggler.

What would everyone think of a lesnar ambrose match at wrestle mania I would personally like it. ambrose gets a better reaction from the fans is better on the mic has a better in ring style than reigns was starting to think they are starting to see that and building ambrose and lesnar more than the predictable reigns.

Agree1 Disagree0

02 Feb 2016 22:12:32
I just want Dean Ambrose to win the WWE title at Wrestlemania. I really hope he wins at Fastlane. There giving him a well deserved Push this Triple Threat is becoming a bit unpredictable.

Bret Hart diagnosed with prostate cancer.

Hope he pulls through - he kinda sounds a bit bitter these days but was one of my favourites growing up. His win over Flair on WWF superstars was massive back in the day seeing as it came out of the blue

{Ed007's Note - Very sad news that, our thoughts and prayers go out to him, his family and friends.}

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Feb 2016 19:46:49
Read that and agree it is very sad. He hasn't looked right for some considerable time now and like mick said, he does come across as a bitter man. He is one of the all time greats and he should have enjoyed the same adulation as Flair and Hogan (well before he was outed as a racist) but he hasn't. Such a shame and I wish him well and hope he makes a full recovery.

Who do you guys think should be the next one to make the step up to the main roster from NXT? I'm hoping for Finn Balor and Samoa joe. Obviously bayley too but I'm guessing they are going to hold onto her for a while.

I hope none of them go as they'll probably get ruined but my money is on balor.

31 Jan 2016 15:53:19
My guess is Enzo and Cass. The tag division desperately needs new talent, and the "Golden Truth" isn't it. Plus they're not doing a lot in NXT.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jan 2016 22:04:51
I hope it isn't Enzo and Cass, my bet would be Vaudevillians.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Feb 2016 17:25:57
To me the only tag team ready to come up is Dash and Dawson. With Jordan and Gable 2nd. Vaudevillians and Sawft matches do nothing for me. Would I like too see Enzo and Cass do promo battle with New Day absolutely. I couldn't buy them defeating guys like Kofi and Big E who the division should be built around, I would book New Day a bit stronger giving them a few more clean wins. I have no interest in the Usos dethroning them.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jan 2016 09:17:00
If it's true that the Wyatts and Brock are feuding up to WM, I just don't understand it.

The Wyatts could have been something. Like a new Ministry. But they have lost every big feud they have been in. Daniel Bryan, Cena etc. If they can't go over on them, are we really supposed to believe they can slay they beast? Poor booking always comes to bite you on the arse.

I'm not even that bothered about HHH being champion. Vince even put the belt on himself once. This feud would have been a lot better if Reigns could cut a promo without that monotone voice of his.

We know it will never be as good as it's Heyday. But to rehash the storylines from 15/20 years ago but give us the PG version will always harm the company.

I would like to see at WM.

New Day v Uso's v Dudleys v Lucia Dragons - ladder match.

Owen v Ambrose v Ziggler v

30 Jan 2016 11:41:36
I've thought that for a while now. Heel groups are just used to boost faces. The League are regularly smashed up by Reigns and Ambrose. The Wyatts like jamesmack says have lost all the fueds they are in.
I know that faces send merchandise, but the swing has gone far too much in their favour. The WWE seems to have forgotten that everybody loves a really good villain.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jan 2016 12:04:00
Exactly COYS there's as many KO shirts and Bullet Club Shirts in WWE crowds as any. Think of the old NWO tshirts, if you can make someone cool enough to make all Kids and Grown Men who watch wrestling even some who don't want to buy there Tshirt. Then that's got to be Where the money's at. They should Go all in with guys like AJ, Kevin Owens and Dean Ambose this year.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jan 2016 18:25:22
There has to be much better plans for Wrestlemania, than there letting on. I just can't see them trying to fill a 100,000+ seat stadium, with most of what's being rumored.

Maybe Smackdown setup what the Wyatts will be really doing at WM? Maybe it'll be the Wyatt Family against Jericho, Big Show, (and let's say) Kane, and Ryback. Nothing spectacular for the Wyatts, but it should give them a WM win.

I also assume that at least one big name will be able to go. Allowing them to pair him with Lesnar for the marquee matchup or to re-shuffle things and Brock gets someone like Reigns, Ambrose, or Owens.

Agree0 Disagree0

Latest rumours saying undertaker will face Braun Strowman at wrestlemania after strowman beats big show at fast lane. This will be imo an AWFUL match.

29 Jan 2016 21:40:35
Just cannot see this. It must be Bray if it is going to be one of the Family.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jan 2016 09:04:56
I can see this. I think they will have The Wyatt Family continually attack Lesnar, maybe interfere in his match at Fastlane. Then Taker comes out to help Lesnar during an attack on Raw. Sets up Lesnar v Wyatt at WM and Taker v Stowman, personally I'd have Taker v Harper.
What ever happens I think after WM we my see the whole family turn face with this whole down with the machine gimmick.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jan 2016 11:41:07
Its a shame they never built up Luke Harper properly. He's a fantastic worker and miles ahead of Strowman in terms of ability. I think Harper and Undertaker could be fantastic.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jan 2016 11:51:16
I'd love Harper V Undertaker. There's absolutely no way Taker can possibly want to end his career against Braun Strowman. This is a huge Slap to the Face to everyone. None of us can come up with a decent match for Taker apart from Sting who might never wrestle again. Who fits in a match vs Undertaker? I'd kill for Cena vs Taker now I really would I can't handle the thought of this Strowman thing. Dean Ambrose, HHH or Owens should face taker. Saying that il watch all the Awful matches they want to just throw together if Dean Ambrose may leave Wrestlemania as champ but not Brock or Roman. I really feel there playing it safe not pushing new talent while all the stars are injured and it's setting up the biggest Wrestlemania ever to be the worst. They have to pull the Trigger and pull it fast WWE Yous have about 5 guys in NXT and countless guys in the midcard who make Wresltemania 32 the greatest WRESTLING show the worlds ever seen. I couldn't care less if they don't have good storylines make storylines then with Turns run ins whatever it's Wrestlemania go crazy book great matches and let these guys do there Job they will deliver.

Agree1 Disagree2

30 Jan 2016 12:05:03
The Rock vs Taker would be a huge draw. If HHH is busy with Reigns and they can get insurance for the rock to wrestle then that would easily main event the night.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jan 2016 12:19:54
I agree with that its just not looking likely. Rock V Takers massive. I just want to see them show some balls and go against the Grain and Make it the biggest instead of just saying it.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jan 2016 12:43:41
Yeah I've seen/ heard the Taker v Strowman rumours. That is exactly the kind of match VKM would make. We all want Taker v Sting, Taker v Cena or Taker v Rock. Obviously they can't do Taker v Cena because of injury, and Sting will probably still be injured at WM. You'd think they'd try to set up Taker v Rock, although Rock's movie contracts may prevent him wrestling. But to go from there to Taker v Strowman is some leap. This would be Giant Gonzalez levels of bad.
I'd even rather see Taker v Reigns (in terms of the match quality) but we all know Reigns would go over (and get booed out of the building) I'd rather see no Taker match than have him face Strowman.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jan 2016 18:37:15
I wouldn't completely rule out Cena vs any of the big names. He's already started working out. Either way. There are way to many options for Undertaker, for it to be Strowman.

If it's his last year. They have to have something much bigger planned. Even if it isn't, I would have to believe they would go with someone like Reigns or Ambrose.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jan 2016 16:11:20
I was thinking about what will happen at WM, and what I think happen.

First of all it seems certain it will be:
HHH V Reigns (WWE Title)
Lesnar v Wyatt
New Day v Usos
Charlotte v Sasha (Divas)
Ambrose v?
Taker v? (Please not Strowman)

I think that's a really poor card for WM. I liked the RR as a PPV, but HHH should ever have won the title (or he should at least be defending it at Fast Lane to keep things unpredictable)

At the RR, I would have had Ambrose and Reigns eliminte HHH, then have those two be eliminated by Lesnar and/ or Wyatt. Have Lesnar and Wyatt as my final two, with Wyatt winning through interference from the whole family (setting it up for a title match at WM )

Then on the next RAW I'd have HHH strip Ambrose of the IC title in some dodgy match up (make it a gauntlet mach until he loses or something) give it back to Owens (to set up his feud with Sami Zayn)

I would then have had a match between Ambrose and Reigns at Fastlane to see who gets to face HHH at WM to go for their revenge. Have them stay brothers in arms but totally beat the shit out of each other until the mach is a double DQ or a double coutnout to set up a triple threat at WM (if HHH wins they're both fired, if either the others win the Authority is gone for good)

I'd have Taker face Sting (if he's recovered from injury, if not then have him face The Rock in a showcase match)

I'd then have the Harper and Rowan challenge the New Day and USO's for the tag titles, and have Kalisto defend the US Title against Strowman in a proper David v Goliath match

The card:
Lesnar v Wyatt (WWE Title)
Taker v Sting (Rock if Sting still injured
HHH V Reigns v Ambrose
Owens v Zayn (IC Title)
New Day v Uso's v Harper and Rowan (Tag titles)
Kalisto v Strowman (US Title)
Sasha v Charlotte v Becky v Paige (Divas)

That looks a ich beter card IMO and could set things up going forward. I'd have the Wyatts have all the god at the end of the nght (Wyatt to retain through interference again)

Have Ambrose win the match to get rid of the Authority - this gives you loads of options going forward. You could turn Reigns heel, or you could have The Authority align themselves with The Wyatts to get back into power (a bit like the Corporate Ministry) or even do both as there's not really any top heels right now.

I think my card is better and gives the WWE more options mving forward, which means we'll probable get Taker v Strowman and Reigns geting booed out of the building after he 'overcomes the odds' to beat HHH!

I agree I think you have it pretty close and yes your card is better. Strowman V Kalisto caught my eye. It's not going to be a great match but can have a great ending. Rey beating Kevin Nash on Nitro was one of my most memorable moments of my Childhood as I had never seen someone unmasked or a little guy beat the big guy like that. If they could manage to right it in a great way where Kalisto goes over he will absolutely appeal more to kids and would give him a great boost to being up there with your Rey Mysterios.

The big names are dropping out of contention as injuries take their toll. El Patron is the latest to join Barrett, Sheamus, Rollins, Orton, Cena, Cesaro, Bryan, Sting, Kidd, Sin Cara and I am sure I have missed a few. This obviously limits the options at Mania.
I agree with Monkeyman and the card is not looking promising, but out of adversity comes opportunity.
Get Styles involved. Get Balor involved (his full entrance could be epic) . Get NXT involved. Be brave, be creative. We all know the names who will be in the main events, but give us entertainment before. Put a smile on our faces and create a younger, more diverse roster for the rest of the year.

If they want a Big Guy like that they should just go and get Big Damo the beast of Belfast he has the same look he's not as Tall but he's Massive and can go Coast to Coast what an athlete he is honestly.

If they plan on using Strowman long term then having him 'retire' Mark Henry and Big Show would be a decent way to make him look strong (Kayfabe) Bray could help get him over with one promo "The New Face of Destruction has laid waste to all in his path, he ended the World's Largest Athlete, he eradicated the World's Strongest Man and now this place is ready, the slate has been wiped clean for me to rebuild this place in my own image. For we are War, Famine, Pestilence and death and the apocalypse walks among you. "

On a slightly separate note, they so should have pulled the trigger with Wyatt and let him win the rumble. HHH V Reigns doesn't need the title at all. It would have elevated Wyatt to be a proper threat, and would have set up Lesnar v Wyatt (which should be for the title IMO)

I think Show will go into full buffoon mode. The Rock set him up for this on RAW and I fear that he will fill the idiotic big man role that Kane had for a while and that Khali had all his wooden career.
Wait for the predictable 'never upset an angry giant' from Cole and JBL.
Never been Show's greatest fan, but he deserves better than this. He will be a shoe-in for the hall of Fame. I would like to see him end his career with dignity.
