George St-Pierre expressed his interest in doing a Rousey style Cameo in Pro Wrestling. Saying he was a huge fan especially of Shawn Michaels when he was younger. Is GSP still enough of a name to do anything Noteworthy in WWE? I feel he could create a decent Raw Moment.

I reckon WWE should take the title of Bryan with his injuries and give it Barrett, Barrett challenges anyone at extreme rules nevile accepts and wins

Waste of a reign for Barrett tho, that will make him a 6 time champion & not one of them runs have been memorable. I think if Bryan has to give it up then have an 8 man IC title tournament.

Got to be Dean Ambrose if this happens in my opinion.

So Ambrose vs Harper is first on, Harper wins and Ambrose gets stretchered off, before the Rollins vs orton match Barrett comes out and announces that Bryan has forfeited the match and the title, so Barrett challenges anyone on the WWE roster. Ambrose music hits and Ambrose wins the dirty deeds?

For Extreme Rules it's rumored they will just be giving more time to the other matches instead of replacing the IC title match with anything else. Since DB's availability for Payback is also in question, they should just setup something this monday on RAW where they either do a tournament, battle royal, or whatever with the 'winner' getting a shot at the IC title at Payback. They stipulate that if DB can wrestle at Payback it will be a triple threat match for the title. If he can't, then it will be a singles match for the vacated title between the 'winner' and Barrett.

So what's the point of having Naomi vs Nikki at extreme rules both are heels, Charlotte should debut and take the title of nikki, I understand that I have made comments previously on family heritage but that is only aimed at superstars who have had a previous profession ie orton miltary and reigns nfl, however I respect guys who grew up watching the business watching their family and always wanted to be WWE superstar

Naomi deserves a Title Opportunity to be fair she's worked for it took a lot of Falls for people worked lots of short matches. Paige has been the Champ & her time will come again soom. Charlotte should debut on Raw or Interrupt a title match on PPV you don't just debut in a Title match on a PPV to be fair. The Rock played in the Canadian Football League before he became a Wrestler. Goldberg was in the NFL. Triple H wanted to be a Body Builder. Mark Henry could have been one of the greatest strongmen of all time. In these guys circumstances we would have done the same thing. Randy Orton & Roman Reigns have gained my Respect just for putting there body's on the line for my entertainment who cares how they got there. Both of them are damn good at it Reigns journey has only just begun & just like Randy will Create a Legacy of his own & you never know maybe one day both will go in the Hall of Fame Randy Certainly will.

Charlotte was a volleyball player & personal trainer before wrestling. Her first ever match was at age 27.
Naomi's only 27 now & been in WWE five years. I'm not sticking up for Naomi over Charlotte because Charlotte's 10x better but just pointing out your logics a little warped in that area. Should just enjoy who you like & not care how they got there, as long as they are entertaining now that's all that matters.

Am I the only one who thinks that Reigns is going to get hurt by this match at ER instead of elevated by it?.

Nobody gives a sh*t about the big show so Reigns taking him down means nothing.

RealBigBear

(1)

I really don't think they know what to do with Reigns. Like Bear says, the Big Snore match is pointless.
Personally I think Reigns should turn heel.
On a broader note, there seems to be a bit of a breather after what was an excellent Mania.
Cena with his open challenges is getting silly. He won't lose and he is beating down good top to mid carders. Let Neville have a proper go at him like Cena was allowed to do when he was up and coming.
The IC has had the brakes put on a promising situation as nobody is sure what Bryan is going to be able to do,
Main title? I love Orton as a wrestler, but his feud with Rollins looks like a filler until Lesnar puts in an appearance.
The rest? Not great deal happening. Come on WWE. Get something going.

I'd like to see Show beat RR aggressively for the whole match then get beaten by the standard something heavy drops on him.

Make RR look like a hero that won't give up, throw him through windows, hit him with everything, a few 9 count recoveries.

Make him seem like the underdog before he flukes the win.

(0)
(0)

If I were WWE I would have Reigns take a beating and lose. Have people claiming he never recovered from the Lesnar beating. Then slowly progress him into what I think he should be, the big tough dude that doesn't talk much but spears everything that moves, faces or heels it does not matter he just takes out everyone. Part of the reason I think a lot of people are sour on him is becausr of the come back wins, reminds people of a certain other guy who pops up and wins all the time.

RealBigBear

Well said Bear. Reigns has been popping out of finishing moves like they don't count any more. Bessex pointed this out a while ago that it is not just Cena & Reigns though. Other wrestlers are now 'miraculously' surviving what were previously guaranteed finishing moves.

COYS

I say have the Big Show hit the WMD a bunch of times before Reigns eventually wins the match. Later that night, or the next on RAW, we find out that Reigns' jaw was broken and he will be out for awhile. From then on, it would become the reason he no longer speaks.(I would also have him always wearing something like the skull face paintball mask he and the rest of the Shield wore for a little while, because everytime he smiles, smirks, or whatever he gets dumbface. And you can't be a badass with dumbface.) Have him comeback after Payback with an altered attitude and look, to setup the "Lone Wolf" on a rampage.

I don't recall a double ten count in a last man standing match.

Perhaps there is some way of making RR look tough as boots without having him beat the Show clean.

Show could use an undefeated streak to follow up the Andre Battle Royal win. Try and rebuild credibility for both.

Yes Woody! I would love her to be someone like Rollins BodyGuard. that's the way I would Like Ronda to go if she did come I have no interest in seeing her Wrestle a Bella, Naomi even Paige, Charlotte or Stephanie McMahon you name it because it should not last longer than 10seconds literally. That said I would only like Ronda to actually Wrestle Guys for a Short period of time though you can't have guys getting Buried by Her lol. It keeps getting said a match against Stephanie McMahon if this Happens & Steph even gets a Hit in its a Joke & her Egos as bad as her Husbands.

I don't think anyone benefits from girls out wrestling fellas, it worked for Chyna as she was bigger than the blokes.

I always remember my mates girlfriend telling another one of my friends that as she was a black belt in Ikedo she could definitely control him.

They were of a similar size and she tried to put a hold on him and he managed to bend her over the sofa and mimick bumming her.

Ever since that day I've always thought that people under estimate how much stronger guys are naturally than girls.

I'll acknowledge Ronda is different gravy, but I wouldn't assume that just because she is the toughest women (in a certain weight class) doesn't mean she could compete with a guy that is 50lbs heavier.

Of course that's not to say she couldn't either.

(0)
(0)

I probably have about 70-80lbs on her and I think she would kick the sh*t out of me. People like her can manipulate peoples weight and throw you around. That is just the judo nevermind the kickboxing, BJJ, muay thai and wrestling. I think most of us would face her and end up with broken arms.

Who do you guys reckon Rollins should feud after extreme rules, especially if he wins. As I feel this feud with orton has gone on for too long. Reigniting a feud with Ambrose or reigns seems a possibility. A proper dolph Rollins feud will be good, matches they have had against each other have been high quality, or push Neville quickly. I myself have never been a fan of orton, think he is a good in ring competitor, but never liked anyone who gets into the business based on his family heritage.

Call

At least right now, according to rumors, it looks like it will be Orton again at Payback.

I'll then predict Daniel Bryan for MitB and Kane for Battleground. I'll also connect two rumors and predict Reigns wins the rumored Battleground Elimination Chamber match, to become #1 contender. Lesnar returns the next night to set up the rumored Lesnar vs Rollins vs Reigns match at SummerSlam.

Jables

I have a nasty feeling it will be the gradually turning Kane.

There has also been a bit of dissention with HHH, you could cement him as "the guy" by having him pin the Game.

Ryback, Ziggler, Bryan, Reigns, the return of Brock, Taker if he's fit, there are plenty of good face matches for him to have.

(0)
(0)

I have a feeling that whoever wins at mitb, maybe a heel Ambrose, as he could say he has got nowhere by being a face, so he sold out like Rollins did so he can become a bigger star.Rollins should survive in an a star match against Brock at summerslam. Brock shows him respect, which turns Rollins face, but Kevin Owens makes his debut and assaults Rollins by hitting two pop up powerbombs, and Ambrose has the mitb, cashes in on Rollins, Rollins goes after the title and Owens. But the authority always wins, so at survivor series it's team Rollins vs team authority.
Team Rollins - Rollins, reigns, Brock, sting and Ziggler.
Team authority Rusev, Owens, HHH, Sheamus and Wyatt

Rollins wins by hitting the curb stomp which hasn't been seen for 7 months, this of course shocks everyone, he pins HHH, the leader of the authority, this ends the authority once and for all

Call please explain these comments "never liked anyone who gets into the business based on his family heritage."

An ask yourself the question, do I know what I'm actually talking about here?

Some of the greatest wrestlers in Pro Wrestling have followed in their fathers and grandfather steps in becoming a Wrestler.

So does that mean you don't like The Rock? The Rhodes Brothers aka Cody Rhodes and Goldust? The Usos? I could go on and on..

Orton trained to become a wrestler, went through developmental to get into the WWE. If you don't think he's good enough then fair enough.

The McMahons, The Ortons, Esentially any Samoan guy, The Von Erichs, the Funks, The Harts.

There are not many guys and gals that didn't have someone on the inside helping.

Even the guys that didn't get a hand up from their family, will have been sent the right way by their trainers and friends.

Its really is not what you know in Wrasslin, its who you know.

Orton was originally in the U.S. Navy or some form of U.S. Military, but he got kicked out. Reigns had a failed nfl career, and WWE picked him through his relatives, telling WWE about him. Rock I don't hate, but I feel whenever he returns I think originally wow this awesome, but the only time he does come back is to promote a movie. Usos I can cope with, but guys like Bryan, Rollins, Ambrose,, nevile, Zayn, Owens etc prove that they are wrestlers they have travelled the world, competing on various Indy promotions, now they have finally made it to WWE, they are the true definition of a WWE superstar

Orton would have made it to where he's at regardless, probably one of the most crisp wrestlers ever. In fact his dad is more famous because of Randy & not his own career. In my opinion Bob Orton is one of the least deserving hall of famers in there & probably only in there on the back of his sons fame at the time he went in.
The best 3 women wrestlers (Paige, Charlotte & Natty) all had family before them. Then thiers Bray Wyatt who's probably the best all round performer in the company comes from a wrestling heritage.

I can't agree Call, Ever Since Randy appeared he was a star in the making the youngest ever WWE Champion.

Those guys you mentioned are the definition of True Pro Wrestlers who have really burst there guts to get here.

It's a f***ing joke! The curb stomp is what makes him a great Heel and now it's going to severely affect his reign as WWE Champion now.

You've got The Uso's hitting multiple superkicks per match, DDT's by Ambrose etc.

I feel for Rollins now, and his new finisher sucks so bad aswell, why didn't they let him use the running skywalker off the turnbuckle? That's good for me so he can use his feet on the ropes a heel tactic to win the match etc.

Some reporters are saying it is not banned but being used as a special move like the Punt by Orton, so that move was last used over 2 years ago effectively taking away Orton's biggest Heel move.

WWE just f***ed up and they don't even know it.

Nah that DDT looked crap & probably more dangerous than the curb stomp when you think about it. With the curb stomp the opponents head only hits the mat as hard as they want to & not seth so if they got injured then its because they oversold it. I like the phoenix splash but only problem there is he's well overshadowed by Nevilles red arrow.

I understand it would work with Ronda Rousey as she is a huge star. How many other UFC or MMA Fighters would work in WWE or would you like to see? I read Daniel Cormier saying how big a fan he was. I really Like DC he's an Olympic Wrestler & the man can talk himself into a fight. Jon Jones has also expressed his Love for WWE & wanted to do something but apparently there was no interest on WWEs side. Which probably rules everyone else out because After Ronda Jons about as big a star as they come. When Rampage King Mo & Tito Ortiz Joined TNA I thought they would be great they were awful but Bobby Lashley is the real deal he was the only one who really got to Wresttle though and obviously he has experience. I may be wrong but I think Caen Velasquez is a fan of WWE also. It's long overdue WWE had a Black Champion Daniel, Jon or Bobby Lashley would fit the Bill in my opinion even just a publicity stunt I think this could be good. This is just for talking sake though I'm well aware there plenty more deserving guys in WWE who have worked there asses off to get there & some never will.

Was having a chat down the pub the other night, with some of the few people who admit they love wrestling, about under rated wrestlers and while the likes of Malenko, Owen Hart etc were mentioned, we all agreed on two.
First one is obvious. William Regal. One of the all time greats. The ultimate professional. The Hall of Fame beckons.
The other is the late great Rick Rude. One of my all time favourites. Yes he won the IC championship and the WCW International Heavyweight Championship, but to me he should be right up there. A great wrestler, a great user of the mike and one of the best heels ever.
I am not saying they are the best wrestlers ever but in my opinion, they are the most under rated.

I was watching the Monday night wars on the network and got up to the episode about Brett Hart and the Montreal screw job.
Growing up I loved Brett hart, and always thought vince was in the wrong, but as I watched it I kinda took vince's side. U start to understand it was best for business and had to be done.
I just wanted to ask everyone else's opinion on what happened, who they think was in the wrong etc

Actually COYS it was best for every wwf wrestler that was on that roster because had bret taken that title to WCW it would have been game over for WWF, so no Vince didn't do it for himself he done it to save his entire business! I personally don't think Bret would have trashed that title as he respects the business but as a stonecold t-shirt said DTA

LeeWils

The main reason Brett left to go to WCW was because of Vince and the direction he was leading the WWF at the time (and of course for a pot of money).
Vince would not hear any view but his own, a lesson he doesn't seem to have learned anything from.

I've seen a few documentaries, lots of interviews and read countless books about the Montreal Screwjob and none of them have ever stated that Bret was taking the title to WCW. Bret's plan was for the double DQ and then the next night on Raw he would surrender the title and give a farewell address. The only person who thought it possible that Bret would take the title was Vince. What is clear in all the sources surrounding the incident was how much Bret loved the business and WWF, it was Vince himself who told Bret to take Turner's offer as he had no hope of matching it. I have always been on Bret's side as I am 100% confident he would have dropped the title 24hrs later

I have read plenty of times that Bret would have dropped the title to Stone Cold, Mankind, or Ken Shamrock.

They were expecting the double DQ run in finish in Montreal, and the title to be handed back or dropped the next night.

My thoughts have always been Bret should have just let Shawn go over. When a guy who has always done the right thing suddenly decides he wouldn't do business, who's to say what he would have done or not on Raw.

Who's to say he wouldn't have turned up on Nitro that next night?

Its easy for Bret to say he wouldn't have done it when he had the option taken away from him.

You have to say in the end Vince made the correct call for himself. His business thrived and he won in the end, it was dirty, but it worked.

He sent the Hitman down to WCW as damaged goods.

I don't See Bray getting a match for Extreme rules which is a shame but I could see him Finding his way into the Cage at the end & attacking Orton before he Punt Kicks Rollins to victory. I wouldn't mind a feud between him & Reigns or Ziggler to see who would come out on top in those situations.

"I'm going to grind you, pull you & stretch you". Yeah nice promo Dolph, doesn't sound awkward at all.

Yeah that was strange. I'm absolutely positive Dolph could cut a better promo than that especially when Shemus is looking like the Corn flakes Bird! I feel sorry For Dolph if he has to put Shemus over in this Feud. When Ziggler was IC champ & Shemus was US champ Ziggler was having the best matches in WWE by a mile. Dolph has to go For Rollins those 2 are the best at the top of the ladder for me. I think it could be really funny as well.

Neville, most athletic wwe performer of all time?

I agree. RVD & Shelton Benjamin in their primes have nothing on Neville. Even manys greatest performer of all time HBK is lightyears behind what Neville can do in the ring. Neville could do their movesets in his sleep where they would have to be asleep to do his because they would be dreaming.
There are probably some luchadores out there that are better & more acrobatic in the air but they don't have the strength & power moves that Neville can do as well.

Well said RBB & Woody. Kalisto is one of the most exciting that's been seen in a while & could be better than Rey given the Chance. Adrian Nevilles Germans & Stuff like that are Perfect though Chris Benoit like. I can't wait to see him hit that Hurricanrana from the Back again though its Dynamite. I hope there's a win coming for him at Extreme Rules. I would like to see him in a Midcard feud with someone who can let him Show his full range of Talents then make his move on the Top guys at the perfect time. His match with Dolph & Rollins could have been saved but obviously they can be done even better. There building him as the guy that's just not quite Ready & no doubt we will hear that again when he makes a good Showing against Cena he's clearly going to answer the open challenge the way he's heading.

The trouble with people like Benjamin & Morrison is that while they were exceptional athletes, they had absolutely nil charisma.
Kofi Kingston isn't bad, but he is Benjamin light.
It will be interesting to see how Neville develops.

I really like Neville from my neck of the woods Newcastle Unfornatley I support Sunderland but it's great to see a North-East lad doing well at the nights level in sports entertainment!!

Certainly one of the most aerobic and acrobatic athletes we've seen.

But could he bench 700lbs like Dino Bravo?

I've just gone right off BNB. He is on the BBC 'Challenge Lawro' football predictions and he has done Spurs to lose at Newcastle. B*****d! Hope Sheamus kicks his head off.

Just watched nxt anyone else think dana Brook is undoing all the hard work in the divas division in nxt?

I thought she was awful. and just acts like a porn actress the whole way through just constantly rubbing the self.

That irritated the hell outta me, nxt is where women's wrestling is actually a joy to watch and and in one match was set back. Nxt doesn't need a muscled Bella rip off.
If she had came in as a bruiser like beth phoenix that would of been awesome

(0)
(0)

Yeah she was Awful the NXT crowd won't stand for it I feel. They have the Total Diva in NXT already Sasha Banks is bloody Awesome! My Guess is she will fade away! As much as I like Enzo Amore on the Mic he is one of the worst Wrestlers I've ever laid eyes on. He has a Great Career ahead of him as a manager though I would say.

Enzo isn't a bad wrestler but he's playing a role where he's goofy in the ring & pretty much needs Cass to bail him out all the time, he can do a lot more.
As for Brooke, I can't complain about her touching herself but probably overdid it lol, she did 1 or 2 nice moves but looked awkward for most the match & she definitely needs to learn how to punch & kick, looked like the female Cena with those. You got to remember as great as NXT is its still considered developmental so see what comes of it.

Does anyone else think with Taz leaving TNA he may return as one of the trainers at NXT or even on the new tough enough?

Luket

I've said it once il say it again Taz is the best Commentator left for actually calling Moves. I would also say he's a Better Heel Commentator than JBL.

Would love Taz back but once he sits in commentary with Vince in his ear he'll probably be terrible like the rest of them. I'd love to see Matt Striker back more.

Drew gallerway in tna

He's been in it since they Were in Glasgow he burst Low Ki wide open with a steel pole. He still holds the ICW title & another World Title so I think he's pretty much a Hot Ticket out With WWE & ovcourse his wife wrestles for TNA & she's hot as hell I'd want to be with her too.

Ed07{Ed007's Note - Who's his wife now?}

(0)

My mistake Ed there Divorced it was Taryn Terrel. She & Gail Kim had a ladder Mach a few years back that was until I watched NXT the best women's match I had witnessed.

Ed07{Ed007's Note - I knew him and Terrel had divorced, I thought he had pulled another stunner lol Didn't she beat him up for cheating on her?}

(0)
(0)

I don't know ed did she smack the Scottish accent right out his mouth? He sounds less Scottish now he's not in WWE.

Ed07{Ed007's Note - I'm sure there was something about Drew sending a picture of some wee dirties knickers he'd had 'relations' with to Chavo and Terrel saw it, went ballistic and beat him up. There was also something about him having 'pleasured himself' in a gym if I remember rightly lol I'm trying to keep it clean for youngsters like, Call, I'm not wanting an angry mammy on giving me grief because hers sons bedsheets are like Gyproc and he learnt about it on here! :=D (muscle)

He should of tried to get in with ROH or Lucha Underground. TNA is having huge financial problems. In fact, Taz just quit because of not getting paid.

I suppose its all about how much he is being paid and how long his contact is. I know he is still working indies too.
