Update Your Euro 2016 Predictions

28 Jun 2016 20:58:01
Hi guys, long time reader very occasional poster. Absolutely love the depth of conversations on here.

Anyway, with the upcoming brand split and NXT staying as it is, do you think it would be beneficial or 'cool' for both shows to fight over the latest upcoming talent? Say for example Finn Balor stays in NXT for another year and it's apparent his 'contract' with NXT is due to expire, do you think it would be cool for both shows to fight it out over his signature? Or even every April after mania have a NFL style draft for new NXT stars? Being from England I'm not too sure how that works but I'm sure you get the concept.

Looking forward to any response and hoepfully I've not missed it on here before.

I have always enjoyed the draft. It has an air of anticipation about it and if done properly ramps the tension up. I don't see why they don't have a match to see who has first dibs though.

Agree0 Disagree0

 

 

28 Jun 2016 12:24:57
Would it have been smarter for WWE to remove Roman from the Main event & Move Cena & Aj into the Title match for Battleground. I'd buy into that Fatal 4 way. Does anyone else think they may Move Rollins into the Club?

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2016 16:42:20
I would imagine they will continue with the Shield triple threat as chances are they will be split during the draft so this is their only chance to do it. If they were going to take him out they would have not put him in the match in the first place as they knew he failed the test before money in the bank.

Don't get me wrong i'd much rather see Ambrose Vs Rollins VS Styles.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2016 17:26:22
Ideally I would of liked to see AJ's idea for it to be Ambrose vs Rollins vs Styles, but I would of been cool with pretty much anything that didn't involve Reigns. Whether it's Roman or anyone else. You shouldn't be able to just show up for the match without doing any of the work that goes into making it.

Rollins will probably team with the Club a couple of times between now and Battleground, but they'll probably end up on different shows.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2016 21:20:16
Vince has had his heart set on a Shield triple threat ever since they got popular. I still think this is more of a Summerslam match so who knows.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2016 11:31:25
Just a word here to say I'm really enjoying jericho and his stupid idiot gimmick his segment with shane made me laugh like f*ck

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2016 12:06:03
I like Jericho. With the likes of HHH and Taker seemingly in hibernation, Jericho is really the last of the AA single wrestlers to regularly appear. He has the charisma and the in ring skills to be able to back up his characters.
He doesn't seem to mind helping build up opponent's reputations (please take note Cena and Reigns) .
The stupid idiot is just the latest gimmick in the life of a really top professional.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2016 12:47:16
He's brilliant got to love Chris Jericho 👍🏻.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2016 13:09:31
don't forget goldust, he was in the AA and is still as good as ever.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2016 15:00:39
Difference is coys it's the end of he's career so it's he's job to put them over so can't compare it to reigns.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2016 18:36:15
You can't compare him to reigns mate come on lol. see to be honest I'm starting to like reigns in ring and don't give a **** attitude make him come back and cheat ambrose out the title by getting help from his cousins the usos turning them all heel.

Agree0 Disagree1

25 Jun 2016 22:36:41
If you look at the last 20+ years. Very few of the top stars did much, if anything, to pay it forward in the wrestling business. Jericho has probably done more for the future just this year, than most of his fellow Attitude Era stars have ever done.

Cena is really starting to enter the stage in his career, where it's time to put others over. His next few years will determine his legacy. If he stays par for the course, he'll just be remembered as a second rate Hogan. If he pays it forward and does it well, he might actually earn a spot on the Mt. Rushmore of WWE.

Reigns won't be around long enough or in a position to be in a spot to always decide who he wants to bury or elevate. His power and position will be about what Batista's was.

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Jun 2016 11:16:46
I used to not mind Reigns before he had the monster push. Give him Rusev and the Us title when he comes back and have him get over naturally face or Heel. Dean Ambrose hasn't done anything Wrong not been injured put his body through a lot more Hellish matches why should he lose out To Reigns?

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jun 2016 13:43:23
I read that back and think Rusev doesn't even deserve that. Reigns should put Rusev over. Then work his way back up from the bottom.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jun 2016 13:34:22
I have been saying for a few years The Shield will boss the WWE.

Sooner or later they will all take turns at being heel and face, they'll all be near the top for a while.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jun 2016 17:14:47
Just wondering who you guys think Will win the CWC if any of you are into Indy Wrestling? I think it's between Ibushi & Sabre Jr. ZSJ probably being the perfect guy to walk into any roster as a Champion. My Personal Choice is Noam Dar him being from My Home Country & I know He's more than Good enough.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jun 2016 18:08:56
My money was on Sabre before and I won't change my mind.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jun 2016 18:29:07
I'll be rooting for Rich Swann, but final 8 might be as far as he gets.

I'm going to go with Ibushi to win it.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jun 2016 20:00:22
Tajiri.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jun 2016 21:23:57
My two picks are sabre Jr and ibushi.
Would love noam to win being a fellow scot but can't see it.
I'm really excited for it the matches will be amazing.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jun 2016 23:44:01
Noam Dar aswell troops. But can't see by ibushi.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2016 10:16:43
Does the winner get a Cruiserweight title?

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2016 11:10:48
Nae idea mate but a saw hhh say somethin bout it being a new brand or summit.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2016 11:57:46
I should think that a title and a WWE contract are on offer. I really hope a number of them get contracts and when the brand splits there can be a cruiserweight competition, probably on Smackdown, a bit like the old X Division. With the quality on show in the current tournament this is far too good an opportunity to miss.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2016 13:11:25
yeah, don't rule out noam dar.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Jun 2016 20:58:41
I think Kota Ibushi will win it.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jun 2016 13:35:41
Cruiserweight champ could be a NXT thing to help cover the fact loads are on the verge of a call up.

Agree0 Disagree0

 

 

24 Jun 2016 05:22:22
Couple of pretty good matches on Smackdown. Cesaro vs ADR and Zayn vs Rollins.

Ambrose tormenting Rollins throughout the night, was a lot of fun as well. Dean's and Seth's chemistry together is truly something special.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jun 2016 19:22:34
WWE ppv schedule for the rest of the year.

July 24: Battleground - RAW/ SD
Aug. 21: SummerSlam - RAW/ SD
Sept. 11: Backlash - SD
Sept. 25: Clash of Champions - RAW
Oct. 9: No Mercy - SD
Oct. 30: Hell in a Cell - RAW
Nov 20: Survivor Series - RAW/ SD
Dec 4: TLC - SD
Dec 18: Roadblock - RAW

It looks like Survivor Series and possibly Royal Rumble will be 4 hours now. SvS is scheduled to start an hour early.

SummerSlam was already 4 hours and, at least for now, is staying that way.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jun 2016 08:31:09
I saw this yesterday. I like the idea of bringing back some of the old PPV names.

The only thing that doesn't make sense to me is Roadblock. I would think that would make more sense in February as its supposed to be a Roadblock on the road to Wrestlemania.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jun 2016 09:51:52
Oersonally think they could of bought back armegeddon for December or a new name such as end game.

Agree1 Disagree0

23 Jun 2016 13:36:21
I love the Armageddon name and would love for them to bring it back.

I don't like Hell in a cell personally. I like the match concept a lot but I like it to be a surprise ending to a big feud not just a formality because the PPV needs one.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jun 2016 15:19:36
I think themed PPV's are good to break up the fact that we have top stars going one on one every week on Raw and Smackdown.

My favourite was the Elimination Chamber, sitting between the Rumble and Mania, they seemed the semi finals building up to the final, the two participants of the main event would be decided in prestige gimmick matches.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jun 2016 15:59:51
It'll be interesting to see what they put in between Royal Rumble and Wrestlemania, with the 10 week gap that's there.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jun 2016 20:40:39
Am looking forward to the split hopefully see more guys getting a better chance to show what they can do maybe wishful thinking.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jun 2016 22:46:43
They really have to get a Grip on the IC title after the Split. Miz was actually doing very well on TV for me before they gave him that strap he was likeable and Hateable at times and I thought he's a good character to have good storylines that don't involve belts. He's an embarrassment to it considering the Guys around him. I Think Sami Zayn is a perfect IC Champ but he deserves to beat someone better than Miz for it. Rusev should also be having long hard fought matches and showing what he can really do I like the guy he's a decent Heel but he has no charisma.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jun 2016 23:23:05
I don't think they should call any of them after gimmick matches, even mitb. It would mean that these matches could be called at any time and not just put together because of a ppv. These matches should be for special occasions I. e, to end a feud.

Clash of champions has to be filled with title matches only to work too!

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2016 21:06:21
I used to love the Elimination Chambers. It was a good concept, was always a good match and gave them lots of options and wriggle room going into WM. I think it's crazy that they changed it.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jun 2016 21:51:43
The wellness policy is the best way to get a month off.
1) Book a holiday
2) Take banned substance
3) Ask to be tested
4) Get banned
5) Enjoy time off
6) Return to the company

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jun 2016 14:55:29
Its all fun and games until you return in a tag team Romaxle.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jun 2016 20:34:35
So, Reigns is suspended for breaching the WWE's wellness rules. Shame it is only for 30 days.
Wellness is a stupid name. Nearly as stupid as The Club.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jun 2016 21:05:00
This week is like RVD/ Cena but with a happy ending.

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Jun 2016 21:47:42
I would have thought he would of had a never test policy just like the one Randy Orton has had in place since failure 712.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jun 2016 20:25:42
Just got a text saying Roman Reigns has failed a wellness policy test and has been suspended for 30 days. Vinces head must just of. exploded.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jun 2016 20:44:55
Just read it as well, what does this mean for battleground?

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jun 2016 21:00:14
His 30 days would be up before the ppv but the company wouldn't look good if they put him right back in the main event.

I'm guessing they'll do Ambrose vs Rollins or they could have HHH come back and get his title shot that he never took after Mania?

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jun 2016 06:59:47
I kind of Hope Stephanie and HHH stay away from Deans Title Reign. I'm fed up of the Authority running the Title picture it's the same BS everyweek.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jun 2016 14:56:24
Looks like the triple threat is still on.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jun 2016 16:57:20
Since Shane made the triple threat match by himself. I figure Steph will do something on RAW to change it, that will in turn end up setting up something for SummerSlam.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jun 2016 15:21:05
I read that his 30 days are up before the PVV, and its going to be a triple threat.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jun 2016 13:18:27
So WWE have announced that the draft will take place on the first live episode of Smackdown on the 19th of July. This leaves only 5 days between the Draft and Battleground. So i'm assuming they will just treat battleground as a normal PPV and start fresh building up to Summerslam maybe. Its going to get a bit confusing if Reigns, Ambrose and Rollins end up on different shows where does the belt go.

Personally i'm looking forward to it. I haven't watched Smackdown in years but I will be from the 19th.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jun 2016 16:44:12
The Belt will be on Raw with Ambrose. Isn't it Smackdown who's getting a new Title?

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jun 2016 20:44:44
With Reigns blotting his copybook the title is wide open for Smackdown. I think it iis likely that Rollins will stay on the same show as Ambrose so I imagine the favourites will be Cena and Styles. I hope they do something a little different. Why not someone like Owens or Wyatt?

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jun 2016 11:28:29
The will probably have the draft on Smackdown and have some qualifying matches for a WHC tournament at Battleground. They'd be nuts to have anyone but AJ Styles win the tournament IMO. Set him up as top heel and have him hold it for a fairly long reign.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jun 2016 16:13:25
AJ should definitely win the heavyweight title, I'd have no issues with Cena finally beating him for it to get 16 world titles either. I think I added them up properly and AJ has won 29 world titles, so it would be his 30th, that's impressive!

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jun 2016 12:29:03
I know a lot of people are focusing on Ambrose cashing in but for me the biggest takeaway from MITB was Rollins won clean over Reigns.
Hopefully this is a sign that they see both Rollins and Ambrose higher than Reigns and the experiment is over.

Agree2 Disagree0

21 Jun 2016 13:19:06
Agreed. It doesny take a rocket scientist to work out it hasn't worked and as a company dependant on fans there's only so much they can ignore us.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jun 2016 10:52:58
My god you want to know just how good a heel a j styles is , he is actually managing to get cena over to the fans and not just the children , without making himself look weak at the same time . How many have tried and failed to do that?

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Jun 2016 16:50:28
I didn't see anything between Mania and MITB but my mate told me AJ was making Roman Look a lot better Also.

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Jun 2016 18:27:47
He was rm8. Absolutely the best matches and segments iv seen of reigns. Austin was on record saying styles carried reigns.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jun 2016 07:34:11
Terrible raw that has undone all the good work from the last month and killed any buzz about anything that had promise to it.

Agree0 Disagree1

21 Jun 2016 11:47:20
Really?

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Jun 2016 12:42:07
Apart from maybe turning reigns heel and rolling face along with ambrose coming off looking strong was sh*t imo.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jun 2016 13:20:38
Cena being dominated was a plus for me and as usual owens and zayn r tremendous. Wasn't a bad show all in for me.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2016 21:27:36
I thought I was a decent RAW. To say it did away with the good work of MITB is laughable IMO.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jun 2016 22:35:42
As happy I am ambrose won, think he can add a different element especially with the brand split. But is it just me that's gutted there won't be any chase. I think it would of been awesome if they had him stalking all the champions just winding them up and letting them know it's there. It feels that we haven't had a decent run with the briefcase for a while.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jun 2016 00:30:31
I like that there is a story that can go all the way back to MitB 13' if the want it to and, even if they start with 14,' is a pretty incredible story.

Plus there is hopefully plenty more years for Ambrose, Owens, and/ or Wyatt to have a lot of fun with a MitB case in the future.

Agree1 Disagree1

21 Jun 2016 09:53:11
I'm glad he just cashed in straight away, I'm sick of every year having the nonsense of a cash in to avoid having someone lose the belt clean.

I'd rather they had to give 24 hours notice.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jun 2016 13:12:21
I think he had to cash in straight away as it may have got a bit confusing with the band split.

Agree1 Disagree0

22 Jun 2016 02:09:36
I think they got it 100% right to have him cash in on the night against Seth. That was a great ending to a PPV.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jun 2016 20:02:08
Overall not a bad PPV. I always enjoy MIB and apart from a quality 6 man match, there were big matches that were a grade above most PPVs.
I wouldn't mind if they put MIB in the big four at the expense of Survivor Series.

Agree2 Disagree0

20 Jun 2016 20:59:33
I think it's one of there best PPVs also. Survivor Series is great if the Build ups there. The last one was shocking but before that when it was Cena Vs the Authority and Dolph Ziggler as IC Champ in the weeks leading up was winning Cage Matches and stuff it was all done so well leading upto Sting and Zigglers moment. Then they done nothing With it. Ziggler could've done anything after that push and it would've been believable.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jun 2016 21:50:56
I loved MitB last night. There weren't any 5 star classics but it felt like everyone was on point. Especially with their reactions as things unfolded.

Agree1 Disagree0

20 Jun 2016 22:16:24
The Tag Title Match was Botchamania I thought it was awful really puts the state of the division into Perspective. ROH is Untouchable for Tag Team Wrestling it's a shame. Ciampa and Gargano may be the most exciting team in WWE that's Scary. I Think New Day are Great wrestlers but they were never better than they were when Kidd and Cesaro were about. Which says a lot for those 2 another 2 guys thrown together.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jun 2016 23:08:38
I forgot about the tag titles match. (Or just didn't want to remember. ) There was some stuff that could be forgiven if things were moved around and changed going into the night, but that closing sequence was "just turrible. "

Hopefully they give American Alphas the titles at SummerSlam when New Day likely drops them.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jun 2016 10:58:12
Well you all got what you wanted , I personally don't think Ambrose persona is strong enough to carry the big belt , his in ring stuff is good not excellent , his lunatic / nutter act is boring and has been done to death lots of times before , his record in feuds and at ppvs is very poor up till now and it is very hard to go from putting everyone over to being believable as a champion who strikes fear into other wrestlers hearts , I think he is one of those guys who is much better as a chaser than a champion . I guess we will find out starting tonight.

Agree0 Disagree4

20 Jun 2016 11:03:55
I think he deserves a chance, I always moanthat they don't give it to the under guy when they are heating up. The crowd is with DA, and so am I.

Its not RR or Cena, surly we can't complain.

Agree3 Disagree0

20 Jun 2016 11:07:30
The guy should've been given the ball to run with long before now, he's much better on the Mic than Reigns and Rollins. He's a hell of a better wrestler than Roman Reigns. There's much more to his wrestling ability than we have been allowed to see I feel so I'm excited for it. He probably is a better chaser than Champion. He could have been a great Champ and Face of the Company before now though when the crowd was really behind him. He's one of the most likeable guys on the Roster I think he will do fine.

Agree3 Disagree0

20 Jun 2016 13:36:48
Ambrose fully deserves a shot at holding championship, great on mic and great in the ring. And it is also someone different to normal.

Agree2 Disagree0

20 Jun 2016 17:14:58
Could not be happier for the guy fully deserves it as he is one of the most over guys wwe have. Hopefully it's a changing if the guard to see owens cesaro ect giving a chance with the belt in the next year.

Agree1 Disagree0

20 Jun 2016 21:35:58
And what is it that you want?

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jun 2016 22:07:45
I don't want him to be a Poor Mans Austin but if Ambrose is on Raw I'd like it to go back to being an unpredictable show with some money thrown at it. I want to see Ambrose Turn the place into a Lunatic Asylum i'd have him doing endless Crazy Sh*t and see how Over he can get. I'm not talking Hot Dog Carts but they should have some fun with Ambrose. I really do think he could become the most over Guy since Rock and Austin.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jun 2016 11:50:09
There is no denying it would be the moment of the year if Ambrose ran over Seth's Mercedes in a monster truck. People love that stuff.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jun 2016 02:08:03
I thought it was a good PPV. Good matches and proper booking with good story telling. It was great that Rollins wondering and Ambrose cashed in on him. I thought AJ v Cena was very good and we'll get at least one more rematch and the MiTb was good.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jun 2016 07:27:17
Rumours circulating that WWE has approached numerous former stars about returning to the company following the brand split announcement. Kurt Angle, Rey Mysterio Jr, Jeff Hardy, John Morrison, Chris Masters, Carlito, Shelton Benjamin and Goldberg.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jun 2016 08:36:43
You can add MVP and Stevie Richards to that list too as per Dave Meltzer. I hope the Hardys don't come back. They are both a shadow of what hey used to be in the ring. Every time Jeff hit a Senton bomb now it looks like he is going to snap his back.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jun 2016 11:05:10
It would certainly shake things up.

They are massacring the indie dream matches though.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jun 2016 15:45:43
Just a thought, but I wouldn't be surprised to see Ambrose win MIB and cash in the same night to set up the 3 way Shield match that the powers that be seem to have been looking for at Summerslam.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jun 2016 18:50:59
I think ambrose to win aswell hopefully the cash happens and he wins but a don't think it will play out that way.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jun 2016 19:28:52
Since there always seems to be a swerve in the MitB match, I'm hoping the swerve is with the how and not the who.

It'd be a great time to reconnect the histories of more than just the former Shield mates. #AnyoneButYouRoman.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jun 2016 23:41:56
Does anyone else think Ambrose could be the next CM Punk? Some similarities so far, Ambrose like Punk was, is being held back from the brass ring, never knew what punk was going to say when he had a mic same could be said about Ambrose, both anti authority and almost similar wrestling moves.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jun 2016 11:06:38
Ambrose is no Punk, despite his on air personality Ambrose is clearly on side with the boss. Punk's anger was real, and that's why it was so good.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jun 2016 02:09:40
Im going to go on a little rant about WWE so bare with me.

Its very frustrating that we can't have face v face or heel v heel and both wrestlers stay the same without turning, it seems it always has to be good v bad and its getting extremely boring for me at least. I realize this happens but more often than not it doesnt.

Can it please get more realistic? Just because you're one of the faces doesn't mean you should be able to go through more and still kick out. Rivalries, and this ties in with what I said above it makes absolutely zero sense to go from two people having a heated rivalry to being buddy buddy and teaming up a couple months later, come on WWE who do you think we are? Goldfish?

Blood now i'm not saying there should be blood in every match or anything like that but just every so often that actually makes it worth watching and give people the holy sh*t reaction doesn't even have to be a lot.

Can rivalries get more heated? Like the whole Triple H and Orton one when Trips broke into Ortons house? Nowadays with the exception of a few they don't seem like the people feuding really hate each other.

Last one, STOP TELLING THE WRESTLERS WHAT TO SAY!!! Most of it if not all does not come off as what they're really saying and believing, take reigns for example he's the worst! I say give them guidelines on what they can and can't say. If you can't trust them to speak for them self then why the bloody hell are they wrestlers? If I was vince and i'm not going to lie I would fire Reigns right now he's garbage

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jun 2016 16:13:12
I agree with a bit of what you are saying, but you say on one hand that you want it to be more realistic and then you want more completely ridiculous things like HHH breaking into Orton's house.
More heat could be generated by decent backstage interviews and confrontations. Not just the predictable in ring contract signings.
Those wrestlers that were crap on the mic always used to have a manager. Nowadays there is only Paul Heyman and he blows everyone else out the park. Why not let the likes of Enzo and Woods become managers? They are not very good wrestlers but aren't too shabby on the mic.
With the heel v heel and face v face suggestion, there is never a problem with heel v heel. With faces, it always depends on who that face is. Cena and Reigns are the main faces and you are right, they cannot be beaten by a face without that face turning heel. This won't change while Vince is in charge.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jun 2016 19:45:58
I didn't mean put more stuff like HHH breaking into Ortons house, I meant it made it feel like he really wanted to hurt him bad and made me feel like the hatred was real. And I agree with you on everything you said its true. If I may talk about Reigns a little more it makes me so frustrated that they keep trying to shove him down our throats, the more they do it the more boos he gets. I wouldn't mind him if he had a manager like Heyman and was heel! But of course WWE will never change anything as long as people still show up to shows and still use WWE network which by the way is only $9.99 why pay $60.00 to watch what will be "the greatest money in the bank ever" when you can watch it and many other classic PPVs for $9.99 a month!

The thing about Rollins and Reigns is that Rollins would make a far better face than Reigns and Reigns would make a better heel than Rollins.
When Rollins first turned heel, they tried to make him a version of Edge, a cowardly heel who uses any trick in the book to win. Edge was great at this, Rollins isn't. At least now it looks like he will be on his own. (I hope so anyway)
Reigns? Like you said Clarkk, he is being chucked at us as the saviour of wrestling and the hope and light of the company, which is bollocks. Make him a mean and moody heel, a role his limited personality could cope with.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jun 2016 20:45:21
Reigns isn't getting ratings, he's not putting butts in the seats at shows, and there hasn't been any indicator that he's actually made the company money in any way. Hopefully they start to crumble the Empire tonight. Even if they don't, it's coming.

Does anybody on here remember the arcade game Wrestle Fest. This was early 1990's before Undertaker.
Greatest arcade machine ever made and was a lot more fun than modern wrestling games.

According to Dave Meltzer, the average house show attendance (presumably since WM. ) for the 2 different house show tours that have been headlined by Reigns (A show) and Ambrose (B show), were almost identical.

Reigns with the A show has not only usually had a better supporting cast, but the towns they go to always have a larger (much larger sometimes) population, than the towns the B show goes to.

Roman's show has usually included Styles, the New Day, Cesaro, the IC champion, Charlotte, Sheamus, and ADR. With Rollins recently being added as well. Dean's show has usually included Owens, Zayn, Jericho, the U. S. champion, Becky Lynch, and Enzo and Cass (mostly Cass though)

Just shows how much vince is lost in planet mcmahon nobody cares for reigns and I don't see that changing anytime soon. Stubborn old b*sterd that he is won't listen to the fans.

16 Jun 2016 23:59:10
Something needs to happen at Money in the Bank. Reigns can't go into the brand split as the top face of a show. Cena obviously has one show, but the other should have Seth or Dean as the top face.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jun 2016 09:23:49
Id rather see the B show. I read a while ago the plan is Cena as the main face on Smackdown with Styles as the main heel and Reigns as the main face on RAW with Rollins as the main heel. No reason why Reigns and Rollins could swap though. It just seems so obvious at the moment that Reigns should be a heel.

Pending a medical exam. Moose, Big Damo, and Noam Dar are all set to join WWE soon.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jun 2016 16:15:54
Jesus Christ Big Damos going to F*** S*** up! Damo could've been the Perfect Beast for the Wyatts I Said it when they Brought out Braun Strowman. The Guy is a Monster of a Wrestler that is a massive Coup for WWE because I hear he's also an amazing Coach/ Trainer. I've said it for a while Damos Good enough to be WWE heavyweight Champion right off the Bat. I would love to see Undertaker put over Damo. Noam Dar is a small guy also one of the best Technical wrestlers in the world in my opinion. The Future is so Bright for WWE if they keep going like this. The actual Wrestling may even take over again.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jun 2016 16:17:51
where did you hear that?

I have been saying Dar would get signed up soon as he speaks Arabic and that would really help WWE during some of their tours in the middle east.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jun 2016 16:43:49
I think he speaks Hebrew not certain though. Remember him cutting a promo on TNA Bootcamp For Samoa Joe, Gail Kim and Al Snow I thought it was Hebrew but they were all well impressed.

I feel it's a matter of time before Drew Galloway returns now also. Another guy who could easily be a Champion.

I saw it on reddit and 411mania has a mention of it. It was reported by Wrestling Observer.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jun 2016 20:13:18
Noam Dar is in the Cruiserweight tournament IIRC. The other two will probably be in NXT after the draft.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jun 2016 22:46:57
They are supposedly going to be part of the "september class" with Tommy End.

I'm guessing Noam isn't going to be the only CWC guy that they end up signing.

Roode has recently been working NXT live events while they're in Europe. I would think there would be something official about him and EY coming out soon.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jun 2016 11:31:07
So They have said that Smackdown is going live as of the 19th of July. This is only 5 days before Battleground which would seem a bit of an odd time for the split. So I would imagine this could happen next week after MITB or after Battleground. I'm hoping its sooner rather than later. Based on recent reports that Smackdown is hitting lowest ever ratings i'm sure it won't be too long.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jun 2016 14:13:32
Perhaps Battleground will be McMahon vs McMahon for the first picks in the draft?

There is no guarantee the draft will happen at the point Smackdown goes live.

They may have a "super Smackdown" to kick off the new era.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jun 2016 14:26:00
True. I'm hoping they change it up soon though. I think as like many other people I have lost most of my interest until the draft happens. I haven't watched Smackdown for years anyway. As soon as the draft happens i'm sure I will go back to watching Smackdown weekly.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jun 2016 15:24:49
I personally hope Raw, Smackdown and NXT are all being run by totally different teams of writers, agents, and talent.

There paths should never cross, except for special crossover events.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jun 2016 17:00:24
It appears that the draft will be either July 11th or 18th. It looks like there will be 2 world titles. So I would assume that at Battleground, the crowning of a new world champ would be the main event.

It also appears that there will be complete seperation between the brands. Writers, crew, and everything. The only exceptions will apparently be the big 4 ppvs and the nights after Wrestlemania and SummerSlam.

I hope they stick with the total split and keep separate talent, writers and crew for each show. Hopefully this will create a sense of competition and will lead to an improved product, but that depends on how much VKM wants to micro manage things still. If VKM still wants to micro manage and script everything then nothing will really change.

I think the 7th person on MitB match is The Demon himself.

15 Jun 2016 09:32:37
I mean Balor. He already ended his feud with Joe in NXT so it safe to say he'll be promoted in the main rooster.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jun 2016 14:15:45
I hope they bring Balor to the main roster with a bit more pomp than being the 7th man in MITB.

I think there is more chance he will turn up in the Cena v AJ match joining his buddies.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jun 2016 14:26:58
Id love to see Balor join up with the club and then eventually he and AJ can feud for leadership.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jun 2016 17:29:02
If they were to have a 7th, Balor is probably the most likely. of the wrestlers currently employed with the WWE. He still may not be that likely though. He's having at least one more match in NXT, and it appears that it could be right before the draft. I could see them waiting until draft night or the 1st live Smackdown, to have Balor make his debut.

At this point if there ends up being a 7th. I think it's going to be someone like RVD doing a one-off, or someone like Shelton Benjamin returning to the company.

I don't remember them very 1st time I think it was an old Video I Know Ultimate Warrior was my 1st Wresttling Idol. My most memorable Wrestling show from My childhood was Probably Royal Rumble 98. Rock V Ken Shamrock, 3 faces of Foley in the Rumble. Plus an awesome Casket Match between Undertaker and Shawn Michaels then Kane lit Taker on Fire in the Casket.

14 Jun 2016 21:20:44
I can't remember exactly either but it was around the time Austin and rock where starting to gather momentum in their careers I was born in 89 So proberly about 97 when I was 8.

{Ed007's Note - Gee you're all mere pups - I watched my first wrestling round about 1978/79 on World of Sport on ITV!}

I'm like u ed 007 I remember vaguely watching big daddy n giant haystacks fights but only as a very young boy but probably got more interested early 90,s with lod, demolition, boss man etc.

{Ed007's Note - I can remember in my early teens ITV showed you American wrestling for an hour at about 2 in the morning just before SKY TV took off, then as soon as SKY started showing WWF I would have been watching it.}

I remember wos in the 80s with haystacks big daddy, kendo nagasaki, fit finley, bomber roach.

1990 is when I really started to get into it as a 6 year old. It sounds like a smarky thing to say, but I 'm pretty sure Hogan was the only person I saw that I didn't like. Then again, if you look at all the wrestlers/ characters running around at that time, maybe it's not that surprising?

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jun 2016 00:26:02
Between us all here we have decades of memories. I started watching in the late 1980's or early 1990's and remember watching Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage, Roddy Piper and Money Inc. I started by watching WWF and then added both WCW and ECW to my weekly viewing. I have so many memories but can't pit them in chronological order but my favourite wrestler was Jake Roberts when I was younger.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jun 2016 04:04:05
I'm the same, don't remember exact dates but remember summerslam 92 over here (I would of been 5) and being terrified of Doink the clown (nope, no idea either)

I'd have been around 89/ 90 I suppose. Just before Taker debuted anyway.

Loved Mr Perfect and the Genuis when I was a kid, then Jake, Taker, Bret. Still the Golden era for me.

15 Jun 2016 14:17:47
I was in to WWF before my granddad started taking me to Weston Super Mare to watch the stars of World of Sport.

I saw Big Daddy live, he was a real dick about signing autographs on anything that wasn't a purchased 8x10.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jun 2016 17:59:12
Well. Here goes again. I think mine was either Mick McManus or Vic Faulkner as middlewights on ITV in the late 60's. Would have had to have been around 1967 as we didn't have a telly before that.
Loved McManus, my favourite ever heel. I remember his fights with Jackie Pallo in the 70's which were watched by millions including, apparently, the Queen Mum Gawd Bless Her.

15 Jun 2016 18:09:45
My old boy had one of those big 2 meter satellite dishes that moved around by remote control long before sky was even thought of so he could get Italian tv it picked up eurosport back when it was the only sports station in Europe, on a Friday night they started showing showing stampede wrestling must have been around mid to late eighty's for a ten year old who had watched the odd episode of world of sport stuff and was not impressed this was a whole new world and it was great, I was hooked, I won't bore you with who was in it ( anyone who knows wrestling will know the list of future legends it produced) after that I watched wwf, wcw and wee on every station they went to, sky, bravo, itv, channel 5 and even channel 4 used to show the odd ppv free to air .

My oldest nephew believes that its real and idolizes Sin Cara and John Cena. He's hurt himself a few times doing the moves and my wife tells me to him to be careful which I think is funny as I pulled off a perfect moonsault from a 12 ft astroturf cage onto my mate in builders sand. Needless to say he doesn't know that, but hey that was during the Attitude era and health and safety was in its infancy. In my school we had imaginary titles WWF, IC, Europen, Tag and of course Hardcore with the 24 hour rule haha! My school had its own sports centre so we would set up mats and climb the apparatus to about 20 ft and launch of bodies on to whomever was laid out on top of them.

I haven't really watched any live WWE recently so I had a question for those who have. Are WWE still teasing a 7th man in the MITB ladder match or are they just sticking with 6 now?

I thought it was going to be Bray. But the PPV is this Sunday and I think unless it was mentioned on RAW it will now just end up being a 6 man match.

14 Jun 2016 16:11:18
Last week Meltzer said there was going to only be 6 now because they changed plans, and apparently Orton and Wyatt were never considered for the 7th spot.

They've really built it well with 6, an extra man now may just be stealing their work.

Really enjoyed the cena styles segment this week, tons of bullet club references as well.
Quite excited for the match.

Could be a classic if you ask me. Cena has upted his game in the last 18 months he should be able to hang with aj.

Agree0 Disagree0

I didn't think anyone would be mentioning the Bullet Club this week.

It would be pretty insensitive to even wear the shirt out.
