What do we think will happen with Bray Wyatt now that he’s solo again, maybe interfere in one of the matches at SummerSlam? interesting to see what he does next.

RIP Jim Anvil Neidhart. The Hart Foundation were always my favourite tag team in the early 90s. They had an epic match Vs demolition in SummerSlam 9. A 2 out of 3 fall match. Thanks for the memories Jim.

Jim Neidhart has died at the age of 63. The cornerstone of the Hart Foundation first with Brett and then Owen.
A legend of the ring.
Thoughts are with Nattie.
RIP Anvil.

Brock Lesner vs Roman Reigns, I've got 3 possible outcomes all with being aligned with Paul Heyman. Roman Reigns beats Brock with an assist by Paul, Brock wins and then either Braun Strowman or Kevin Owens come out to cash in and then low blow to Brock from behind by Paul then allowing them to succesfully cash in. Or with just Roman winning clean and then one of Braun and Kevin come out to cash in with an assist by Paul to become one of their's new advocate.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Aug 2018 12:13:18
But saying that I've just seen that it could end up with Roman winnin g clean and then for Brock to ambush him after the match and then Seth Rollins and a returning Dean Ambrose to come down for the save and end up delivering a triple powerbomb to Brock and then celebrate Roman's win to end the show with a Shield reunion once again.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Aug 2018 20:08:49
I suspect Roman will win and win clean. Surely it is time for a full time champ again?
Wouldn't be surprised if Brock finally leaves in a Batista-esque strop.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Aug 2018 20:57:46
I think Roman has to go over clean as Brock has too many wins over him. But the way the WWE have trolled everyone with the booking of Brock V Roman previously, I genuinely can't call this.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Aug 2018 09:41:18
I would have much preferred a triple threat with Lashley.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Aug 2018 11:47:15
why Lashley? Why not another younger guy?

The women have now been given their own PPV and while I congratulate the WWE for recognising the sometimes outstanding work done by the women, I question whether a women only PPV is a good idea.
I don't think there are enough outstanding women to fill a quality show.
Why not give them equal prominence which would ensure decent matches from both the women and the men?
PS. Summerslam in rumoured to be over 7 hours long. For f***s sake. Won't they ever learn?

Is it just me or is Smackdown much better the RAW as of late?

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jul 2018 19:00:54
I have always thought smackdown has often been better than raw. But to be fair, I haven't watched any weekly shows in months.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jul 2018 13:32:12
NXT is pure wrestling, the way I want it, as if it was a genuine competition.
Smackdown is wrestling with some entertainment mixed in.
Raw is Sports entertainment.
If you like seeing men taped inside portaloos and tipped off a stage then Raw is for you, if you want to see decent matches then you're a Smackdown guy, and if you want decent matches that mean something just watch NXT.

Agree2 Disagree0

09 Aug 2018 13:51:34
Smackdown is loads better than Raw. As Bessex has said, NXT os the strongest show overall.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jul 2018 09:27:05
So we will have Team Hell No till about Summerslam. Then you have to beleive that they have to look at AJ v DB. I can't see them having the balls to keep DB out of the title picture until Mania. Its a Mania worthy match but its too far away. So i'm thinking Survivor Series or Rumble latest?

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jul 2018 20:11:25
I seem to remember reading somewhere that there are issues with Bryan's contract and that the WWE are being hesitant putting him in the title picture until it is sorted out.
If it is, there are other rivalries apart from Styles that look decent. Joe, The Miz and Nakamura would all be fun.
It would be pointless to have a feud with Kane if and when Team Hell No breaks down.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Jul 2018 10:42:12
I have read a few places that the WWE don't want Bryan in to anything they can't write him out of in a flash because they are not sure how he will react to wrestling again.

Certainly some great matches for him to have but if I was writing it then The Miz would get the belt off of AJ, and Bryan would get him one on one at Mania.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jul 2018 00:09:46
It has to be miz and db at Mania.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2018 21:04:22
A few things from the last couple of weeks.
Why did they give the MITB to Strowman? If Lesnar was a regular on RAW I could sort of see it as Strowman could cash it in straight away. But it is pointless dragging it out with him holding it. A heel should hold it or a face who gradually turns as he is corrupted by the pressure over time.
It was crying out for Miz or Owens to win.
Big Cass. It turns out he was nearly as big a dick as Amore. I won't miss him at all. A one trick pony.
I have knocked the women a lot on this site, but the Bayley/ Sasha Banks feud is the best constructed outside of NXT at the moment. And Rousey losing it and attacking Bliss and Angle was brilliant.
Finally Rollins and Ziggler. That was fun and McIntyre's presence paid off. What is the betting Rollins has Reigns in his corner setting up a feud between Reigns and McIntyre?
Finally too many PPVs which is cheapening the whole idea. Apart from the big 4, all they are now are glorified RAWS.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2018 09:56:56
1. I was sick of seeing a heel become champion by cashing in the MITB when the champ was already beaten up. I like the idea that Brock can't duck Braun now, and I forsee Strowman demanding his match as the main event of Summerslam. I'd book it that Lesnar only turns up if he knows Braun won't be there, and generally hides from him without actually doing it cowardly/ Miz style, then have it annouced that he is contractually obliged to defend at Summerslam and have Braun come out and declair that there will be no questions its him.
2. Big Cas seemed preoccupied with how tall he was, having to explain how tall you are all the time is a crap gimmick. I don't think the show will miss him. If he was manhandling/ upsetting his ex backstage it only seems right he got the push. Its a show of progression from WWE that they backed Carmella, rather than in the past carried on doing what they wanted with the Man and brushing the girl under the carpet.
3.Bayley and Sasha has been awesome for years now, they are not over using it and now is the time for them to have a huge chunk of a pay perview to try and recreate one of thier special NXT moments.
4. Bliss is just great, she looks so strong yet so vulnerable all the time, a perfect heel champ.
5. Always liked Dolf, Drew has come back so strong that I can see him fofilling the proficy and being the Champ one day. I just hope they don't feed him to Roman. The combination of Ziggler being cocky and Drew being angry works so well.
6. I am not a fan of having both brands on the Pay per views, for me I was happy with interaction on the big 4, and 8 alternating ones. It makes it more of a big deal when someone from Raw gets to go against someone from Smackdown. Bigger gaps between PPV's make for a chance to make the matches seem bigger. You can't beat NXT spreading them out.

Nxt is my go to. What a card! Ok it wasn't perfect due to Lars being in the title picture but that's what wrestling should be. I'm interested to think If Wwe should pretend nxt isn't a "thing" and bring Gargano and Ciampa as DIY and recreate the fued on mainstream Wwe. It's absolute money.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jun 2018 20:46:02
Take Over rocked it. NJPW always rock it. WWE pay per views? So lame in comparison. The main match on Smackdown was better than anything at MITB.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Jun 2018 13:05:21
Well looks like that’s it for CM Punk MMA wise, his next appearance will be at the all in event in September and then I reckon he will end up going to New Japan or ROH. Even though I would absolutely love to see him back with the WWE it seems like a long shot at the minute.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Jun 2018 20:28:27
I don't think any of us were surprised. Punk just isn't a MMA fighter. I won't have a go at him for trying as it takes an enormous amount of guts but in reality he was rubbish.
I can't see him coming back to WWE either. He could make a lot of money in the independents if he does return to wrestling and that would fit him far better.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jun 2018 21:30:32
Who will win MITB, who deserves to win it and who needs to win it?
Strowman is the obvious favourite but he doesn't need it.
Roode can be counted out as, in my opinion, can Balor. The WWE hasn't cashed in on Rusev's popularity and he needs a big win, but I don't think he gets it. The New Day entrant, probably Big E won't either. Joe is in a new feud with Bryan and Cass.
I much prefer the MITB holder to be a heel and 2 of the best are Owens and the Miz.
Personally I would love to see Te Miz win and cash it in eventually on Bryan. I think Miz deserves it, needs it and I hope will win it.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Jun 2018 10:06:47
I would like to see a heel Bobby Roode win it and push himself into the upper card but I can see joe winning it. If joe was on raw it would be a perfect way for Lesnar to lose his title.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Jun 2018 14:34:41
Owens or Miz should win it IMO.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 May 2018 20:41:09
I've been watching wrestling since 1990 but I've got no idea what is going at the moment. There seems to be no long term planning at all anymore. Raw is a mess, the wrong people are faces/ heels i. e reigns, roode. The main belt is an afterthought. Take the belt off Lesnar and give it to reigns as a heel, align him with the uso's. He could be a cowardly heel that needs outside interference. That would give him super heat. Build Owens back up and move Rollins into the main event. Throw zayn in the mix and you have a good main event scene. That will set Strowman long term to beat reigns after a long chase. Smackdown is the better show, I can't see nakamura winning the belt and I hope to see joe get the briefcase. He would be a real threat with the case and can be the main man by taking the title. This could lead up to joe/ styles, joe/ Bryan, joe/ Orton.

Agree0 Disagree0

Really hope they don't do a reigns vs authority angle.

23 May 2018 23:36:05
A Shield v Authority could be good but I think we'll get Reigns v authority.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 May 2018 10:04:03
If they had any sense they'd make it look like Reigns vs. Authority, then have him side with the authority.

Then everyone could boo him together for acceptable pro wrestling reasons.

Perhaps Braun could beat Lesnar, then they screw him with Roman, and make it that the real life effort to make him the face has come true.

Keep making out everyone loves him.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 May 2018 11:52:22
A proper Shield feud depends when Ambrose comes back and I have heard various rumours of a couple of weeks or up until November. As good as Balor is, having him stand in would not be the same.
It is a shame that Survivor Series is so far away as a Reigns heel turn would be perfect then.
I suspect Reigns will turn heel with the help of the Authority but I expect him to lose out on at least on more championship match to justify the turn
I wouldn't mind a feud with Strowman, their last one was Reigns best matches outside of the Shield.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 May 2018 09:22:42
Strowman is the most over guy they have right now, people just love seeing him beat people up.

I don't know why anyone would push it any other way, Roman is a big star, just not a likeable one. They could feud for a year.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 May 2018 12:42:24
I don't see why WWE couldn't have Strowman defeat Lesnar for the title this would get the fans back onside and make Strowman that monster they want too.
Then Strowman could feud with Reigns further down the line over the title.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 May 2018 14:19:42
I think they should go down the corporate rock route if any like you bessex.

Smackdown deal done with FOX 205million a year for 5 years.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 May 2018 12:57:52
Smackdown on FOX. Couple of things. I am quite pleased that the show is moving to Fridays, I never really understood why it was on Tuesdays to begin with. I do wonder whether Smckdown will stay live though. I suspect FOX will want a polished show with definite start and end times for each match to capitalise on advert breaks. This might require a bit of editing that a live show can't guarantee.
I also have a bit of concern regarding FOX's history.

I expect a few more USA! USA! matches, maybe more foreign wrestlers portrayed as baddies and I am not sure the women will be treated with the respect they have fought hard to gain.
I may well be wrong, but a nagging bit at the back of my mind says I am not.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 May 2018 16:30:49
To be fair, Smackdown is bang on 2 hours 99% of the time. Raw is the one that tends to run past its 3 hour slot, usually by sbout 20 minutes. I think Smackdown would be fine staying as a live show.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 May 2018 10:04:29
It can't hurt.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 May 2018 20:54:20
How to improve Smackdown and in particular RAW. My 3 point plan:
1. Please don't start each show with a wrestler in the ring on a mic leading to a usually pointless match. By far and away the best RAW for ages was the Rollins endurance match in Feb. Straight into meaningful action that gripped you from start to finish.
2. Turn Reigns heel and please stop calling him the big dog. Stop trying to make Strowman a face, keep him a monster and hang the title on him. Leave Rollins as IC champ for as long as possible.
3. Please change as many of the commentary team as possible and give the script writers more freedom.
Any other ideas?

Agree0 Disagree0

19 May 2018 12:07:52
Vince to retire and give hhh more input. Less Waffle on the commentary and focus on what's going in on the ring.
Make new stars as the current ones being pushed just ain't working. Five miz a long over due title run.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 May 2018 12:11:48
Change RAW back to 2 hours, 3 hours is too long.

I think Backlash has to go down as one of the worst ppvs, it started of great with Rollins and Miz then afterwards turned into a car crash of a PPV.
WWE need to start to listen and take a long hard look at their creative team.

Agree1 Disagree1

08 May 2018 11:39:41
The WWE's policy of giving us a bunch of Wrestlemania rematches on the next PPV needs to stop.

I can't help but enjoy the battle of wills between Vince and the Fans regarding Roman.

I suspect they'll eventually book him against a child molester and the crowd will still be 50/ 50.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 May 2018 20:03:16
Could not agree more. Apart from Rollins and the Miz it was an awful PPV that just seemed to be going through the motions. There was not a single surprise, not a single moment that made you sit up and like a large number of fans, I left the Reigns/ Joe match before it ended. The chants of CM Punk, Rusev Day and beat the traffic summed it up.
Vince will still want Reigns to be champ, despite all public opinion. In the WWE they keep saying how important the 'Universe' is, but the way the fans are being treated, fed pointless rematches and idiotic storylines and then be expected to lap it up is appalling.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 May 2018 20:47:39
It's unfortunate that they are continuing with the monthly PPV instead of reducing them to give time for stories to build. I had hoped that with the brand split we would get alternate Raw and Smackdown PPV each month but it didn't happen. They need to give stories a chance to breath and build instead of the current ADHD turnaround they currently have. I only watch the big 4 now because all of the others generally feeling like an episode of Raw or Smackdown.

The only good thing about Backlash (besides Rollins) is that people actually left during the Reigns match. Surely WWE have to pay attention to that.

Just watched RAW and I do like the look of the new Ziggler/ Mcintyre connection. Dolph looks more interested than he has for a long time and Mcintyre looked like a beast who would be able to mix it easily with Reigns, Lashley and even Strowman.
On a separate note, isn't it nice to see all the women's matches on the Saudi event? I heard HHH's pathetic excuses. WWE should be ashamed of themselves.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Apr 2018 09:15:01
I like the look of gable reminds me of Bret Hart. Mahal looks very improved all round think he gets a lot of unfair stick. agree with you on drew and Ziggler would have liked drew in singles himself fussing with the men you said.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Apr 2018 09:49:30
I thought Drew and Ziggler reminded me of Shawn and Diesel circa 1996. The cocky littler worker mouthing off, and getting away with it because he is backed by a giant intense tough guy. Its a great combo.

I rate Gable, apart from being excellent in the ring, he has a similar silly dangerousness to the original Kurt Angle character, acts like an innocent fool until the bell rings.

Big fan of Mahal, looks the part, and is decent at his role, they really have his finish over, when he hits that Kalas its over, too many heels finish gets kicked out of these days.

As for Arabia, the law of the land basically stops the women from being able to do their thing. I understand why they are going there, and why the women cant. I'd love to be outraged but I am not.

The Greatest Royal Rumble does have a stacked card though, Cena vs HHH is Mania worthy!

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Apr 2018 10:46:06
McIntyre looks a beast hopefully he can get a main event push. I love Gable but think his lack of height will hold him back.
As for the Saudi tour, I can see why WWE would want to exploit the market but I can't look past their human rights record and misogynistic attitudes (must be the feminist liberal lefty egalitarian in me) . I think it is the responsibility of organisations such as WWE to take stand and influence the next generation in those countries. Likewise I feel that the next two world cups should be boycotted.

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!

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.

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.

Cesaro and Sheamus gor drafted to Smackdown.

Taker and Cena can appear on both shows.

24 Apr 2018 20:42:41
Cheers mate. I missed that one.

Taker and Cena will surly only appear sporadically, they will only wrestle a dozen matches between them this year.

I can't believe they will put the title on Reigns in Arabia, the obvious choice to go over Lesnar is Brock.

Miz and Bryan is a main event on any show they want it to be on, it would be great if they can avoid having it until Summerslam.

Ambrose can come back in anywhere, the lack of horrible heels suggests he should return to Raw to turn on Seth.

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.

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?

Fill your boots, JC, fill your boots.

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.

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.

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?
