Jericho is reported as saying he won't be back for a long time and that he might never wrestle again.
He has said if he never had another match, it wouldn't bother him.
I know he has a history of having long breaks, but if this is the end of a brilliant career, all I can say is thank you Chris.

27 May 2017 12:18:09
he tends to say that after every run!

There is no way on earth that is his last run, he has much more to offer still!

He's scheduled to be a part of the Japan weekend tour. Facing Itami on Friday June 30th, and then be in a Fatal 4way the next day against Balor, Miz, and Ambrose. When he comes back to tv is still a question though.

As for retiring, I think he'll try to keep going at least until the end of 2020, when he'll celebrate 30 years in wrestling that October and his 50th birthday the following month.

Well Randy doesn't gain anything from being champ, I don't think we can deny Jahinder is massively elevated by it. Seems like good business.

They are making his finisher seem dangerous as well, he beat a couple of top guys with the Kallasis now.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 May 2017 20:43:11
Couldn't agree more Bessex. Let Orton go heel, which he is far better at than a face.
I am fairly sure that they will keep the title on Jinder for a while, maybe even until September when the WWE has a big tour of India lined up.
Funnily enough, Junder is being pushed as a face in India and he does two sets of out of ring interviews. The face one for India and the heel one for the rest of us.
I said a little while ago the main shows needed a shake up and this is a promising start.

It may be the most basic Sheiky Baby rip off going, but those Americans do love to boo Middle Eastern people, even when they're not from the middle east.

Cheap heat over no heat.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 May 2017 16:43:29
Charlotte represents a demographic almost 3 times bigger than Jinder (3.7 bil. Women to 1.3 bil. Indians), it would really shake things up, be different, elevate her, and sexism is even more of a cheap heat magnet than racism.

Sami and KO can be her bear and cub, gay bodyguards. Styles can be her hair stylist, Nakamura can be her manicurist. They can then say she married Kofi's non existent brother who stayed in Africa and became a King. So she can be the African Queen.

Then after 6 weeks, we can turn Ho Ho Lun into the Scause-du-jour, when WWE gives him a lazy push to the title because they want to use China to prop up Network subscriber numbers.

It sort of reminds me of the outrage that came when JBL became World Champ. The whole "He is just a tag team jobber, and he's been a loser for 10 years, now we are supposed to buy him as invincible" argument feels identical.

Justin Hawk Bradshaw tweaked his gimmick and JBL became a wraaaastling Gaaaaawd.

20 May 2017 12:44:26
Is it just me or does anyone else feel that the WWE is just trading water at the moment, even more than in the past?
We have a champion with Lesnar who we never see, a champion with Orton who is looking stale and has no competition, the likes of Ambrose and Rollins stalling and having no obvious future storylines, Cena and Jericho gone for the foreseeable future and PPVs that are just glorified versions of the main shows.
Both the red and blue brands need a shake up or the current drop in ratings will continue.

My Shake-up.
*RAW is run by HHH.
*SD is run by Heyman.
*NXT expanded to 2 hours and is run by Gabe Sapolsky.
*Main Event and 205 live get replaced by a WCW Saturday Night like show, run by Arn Anderson.
*Vince takes Reigns, Jinder, Show, and Henry, to start the AIME (Africa, India, Middle East) division.
*Shane takes Cena to start the Chinese division.

-RAW's 1st hour is for the Women's division, hype for the "main show", and announcements/ presentations for things like Make-a-Wish and Susan G Komen. Hours 2 and 3 return to a Warzone and RAW is War like format.
-RAW gets the tag team division, with the Women's, and SD gets the CWs.
-NXT takes on a role more like the early days of WWECW.
-"WWE Saturday Night" is made a one stop shop for showcasing mid to low card talent throughout the company.
-The AIME and Chinese subdivisions have their own shows, tour year round in their regions, and are separate from the main product (s) .

I would really love to see a fully adult wrestling program on the network.

See 5 Star Wrestling have offered Punk $1,000,000.00 to appear in their tour that starts on 10 June.
Personally I don't think they stand a chance and Punk will have one more go of making a fool of himself in MMA.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 May 2017 17:00:40
Right now he's doing a competition reality show on MTV, so it doesn't seem like MMA is too high on his priorities list right now. I don't think the 5* offer will be anything more to him, than a bargaining chip for if/ when he does finally decide to wrestle again.

Its Real. They names it after Kane's Balls.

Cena recently said that there are more episodes of SRW in the works, so I'm still holding out hope GBoF is actually a part of that and not a real ppv. If it is real, I already feel sorry for everyone that has to work, 'goodness gracious' into their promos.

12 May 2017 08:40:12
I don't think WWE really help Roman Reigns. I have just seen an article saying that Reigns' next feud will be against The Miz. As we saw at Mania a lot of people love heel Miz and will cheer him over some faces such as Cena. i'm starting to think WWE know what they are doing and they are using Reigns to get certain heels over with the adult fans. Sell Reigns merch to the kids and Miz merch to the adults. Are they cleverererererer than we think.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 May 2017 10:43:35
They are definitely cleverer they get credit for, I am sure they don't care if you boo or cheer Roman, as people keep buying a ticket to do so.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 May 2017 12:25:17
the moment that reigns turns heel then the adults will cheer him! there is no logic to it. Of course the wwe know what they are doing with him. They trolled everyone at the rumble having him come out at 30 and it worked a treat.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 May 2017 14:13:00
Adults tend to already like the heels, so having them made to look inferior and often times inexplicably temporarily brain damaged, at the hands of Reigns, does nothing to help them get liked anymore.

Turning him heel will only get him cheered if he can pull a megaton of personality out of his arse that's never been seen before, and he feuds with faces with even less personality than he shows now.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 May 2017 14:38:58
if he turns then he has to be the bad mofo that he looks like he could be. He just needs to beat the crap outta people.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 May 2017 17:20:24
I think adults prefer heels because most people would be horrible fight.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 May 2017 17:49:14
I'm not too sure that Reigns will turn heel anytime soon. Vince seems to love his big dog image in the face of everyone else and he sells merchandise to the kiddies.
Before any turn I suspect there will be a Shield reunion.
I'm also not too certain the Miz is that popular. Personally, I think he has done some of his best work recently, but is he likable? No.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 May 2017 13:23:17
I have never been a fan of the miz, in fact I can't stand him. But my god since they brought back his mrs, he is the biggest heel in the company. What he was doing in smackdown was just golden. From the back of that, you can see why vince put so much belief in him a few years back.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 May 2017 12:01:18
Hateable smug heels like Miz need to win to truly work, I'd like to see him get a MITB style situation and rob Roman after he beats Brock.

Jinder: I didn't take anything. I didn't steal anything.
I simply took what will be mine.

. ok jinder.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 May 2017 08:37:36
I been thinking about this whole steroid situation. I believe steroids only stay in your system for for a few weeks therefor he would not fail a drugs test. WWE state that no one can take such drugs while employed but it looks to me that Jinder, If he has taken them, would have done it before he re-signed. Therefor they would have left his system but he still has the results.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 May 2017 10:45:47
I am sure he will either get caught or proven innocent of any such assumptions.

Its a shame that a guy can't get lean and get the benefit of the doubt, but at the same time he s a heel, so add drugs cheat to reasons to boo him. lolz.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 May 2017 17:55:44
I have a certain admiration for him. He has been around for ages and has taken all sorts of crap. But he has stayed and now gets a chance at a PPV.
Who knows? Maybe he will actually win it. Orton at the moment is very stale and is not doing anything to progress Smackdown.
Let Jinder have a moment in the sun, let him help sell the Network in Asia and then let Styles, KO, Nakamura or even Corbin take it off him.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 May 2017 14:30:55
I agree coys, for the amount of times that he has made a crap gimmick half decent, he deserves a little glory. If he doesn't even win it from Orton its a good run for him.
Personally, I don't think he has juiced either.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 May 2017 12:02:59
I hope he isn't just thrown to the bottom, rather that this run and a few showing with Orton, keeps him at least at US title level.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 May 2017 10:38:15
Steph is apparently pushing for a PPV in the UK.
Not before time, but it would have to be one of the big ones otherwise it would just be a glorified RAW or Smackdown.
Mania won't leave the US which leaves either the Rumble or Summerslam, and I suspect it would be the latter. 1992 was a massive success and I am surprised it hasn't been repeated.
Doesn't have to be in London either, but it does have to be a stadium.
Wembley is an obvious favourite, but Manchester, Cardiff, Edinburgh or Glasgow could also host a major PPV and each would sell out in hours.
Really hopes this happens, sooner rather than later.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 May 2017 15:19:19
I would say Cardiff may be the best bet as it has the roof in case of the bad weather, which let's face it is a big issue for the Uk.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 May 2017 22:01:24
I'd extend the Fall European tour a week and cap it off with SvS week in a European city, on a yearly basis. Then give London SummerSlam in 2022 and make a massive deal about it being a return 30 years in the making.

Like you said, they're going to keep Mania in the U. S. With the Rumble and SummerSlam, they'll probably get to the point where they'll do one or the other outside of the U. S. every 5 years or so at most. But with SvS they could kill a bunch of birds with one stone, if they extended the tour a little longer and used it to wrap up most of the rest of the year in terms of live events and programming.

Doing something like this.
Week 1: Secondary countries tour. (Germany, Italy, Spain, etc. )
Week 2: Holiday programming, and special interest live events. (Asia, Africa, India, etc. )
Week 3: SvS week. (TakeOver, SvS, RAW/ SD/ NXT)

Agree0 Disagree0

12 May 2017 10:50:10
With the network they can just add in a PPV, and Cardiff would be ideal, 75,000 in doors, and they'd be able to charge what they want for floor seats.

As long s it was built right, and treated on tv like it was that months PPV it would be massive, obviously it would be helpful if it was a two brand PPV, perhaps room for it to be three brand?

Strowman is expected to be out 6-8 weeks and they're supposedly replacing him as Lesnar's opponent at GBoF.

They're also doing Ambrose vs Miz for the title which, along with Reigns probably needing someone to face at Extreme Rules, could lead to a big shake-up in the upper-card of the ppv.

Rollins vs Joe seems set, but what do people think will, or want, to happen at ER with Ambrose, Balor, Miz, Reigns, and Wyatt?

Agree0 Disagree0

Does anyone think manager's will ever be a big deal again remember when they used to play a major part in matches for me the best ever was Bobby the brain heenan I think a lot of the characters suffer now because everything is scripted. off the top of my head there is only one in the whole of wwe just know and that's Paul ellerin with the author's of pain.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 May 2017 16:36:54
I don't think we'll get any "big deal" managers again, but we're probably headed for a period with a lot of "part-time managers". There will probably be even more husband and wife teams, but they'll have the wife not only manage the husband but also be used in the women's division. With Renee getting involved with Ambrose's business, and vice versa, like Steph and HHH have with each other, over the years. I could also see Enzo and a few others, take on more of a role like Woods has had in New Day, where he's been more of a manager than a wrestler.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 May 2017 19:39:44
Very true jables they seem to go with the husband and wife thing just now don't get me wrong it can work the best example is miz and maryse because she isn't over exposed where as Stef wants to be the main character. Lana rusev aswell.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 May 2017 21:15:12
Heyman shows how it should be done. He has the mic skills and the ability to improvise when required.
Obviously Brock couldn't give a flying one about the WWE except for collecting his enormous pay cheque apparently for not turning up very often. Heyman not only sells Brock entertainingly, he also sells the opponent. He even made an ancient Goldberg seem relevant.
I really hope they don't make Enzo a manager. He is already annoying and any more mic time given to him may push me over the edge.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 May 2017 10:10:09
Your right about hayman but he isn't there full time so you forget about him and as great a talker he is he doesn't get involved the way I was meaning . I like what they are doing with enzo don't see him being a manager though.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 May 2017 18:46:09
I think Enzo's future after they break him and Cass up, is going to be similar to Michael Hayes' after the Freebirds broke up. Hayes wrestled and managed, then started becoming a commentator/ interviewer, then got back in to managing and got to have a few more matches.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 May 2017 14:34:19
On Lords of Pain they are currently counting down the top 100 tag teams of the Wrestelmania era.
I have had a think about this and only the Hardyz of the current and even recent crop would have a chance of cracking the top ten.
You have the Midnight Express, Hart Foundation, Edge and Christian, Bulldogs, Steiners, Dudleys. I could go on and on. But the Road Warriors/ LOD stand head and shoulders above everyone else.
Started as heels but ended up real favourites. In fact I can't remember another tag team that were actually more popular than the singles wrestlers with the crowd.
They have been copied many times, but never equaled.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 May 2017 19:44:04
Tag matches aren't what they used to be little things like the heels always cheating beating down one member before the hot tag for me it's the basics but best growing up I always liked the tag team championship till about 2010 there isn't any because they don't let them be they got told everything to say and do if you get me.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 May 2017 16:24:16
Its not as if the wrestlers today are worse than in the past. They are more athletic now, though a lack of genuinely charismatic superstars is another discussion.
It is that the WWE doesn't care about anything apart from a few headline individuals.
Reigns can randomly team up with a partner and they will beat an established tag team, which is wrong. And it isn't just Reigns in case someone thinks this is an anti Reigns rant. It isn't.
A decent tag team has to be built, has to develop a real partnership and decent storylines and relevant rivalries. If a team like the Usos had been around twenty years ago they would be appreciated much more than they are now because they would have had decent competition and a worthwhile title to go for.
All a tag teamsis now is filler.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 May 2017 17:20:13
Most of the tag teams that ended up being great, were/ are so in large part because of what they did outside of WWE. Save for twins like the Usos, basically every team in the Wrestlemania Era has had a main roster shelf life of about 3 years or less. The Hardys were broken up, the first time, right around 3 years, but were one of the rare occasions where they both stayed with the company long enough to have their own moments and be able to come back together to create more moments as a team.

Hopefully with HHH putting a lot of effort into tag teams in NXT and the resurgence of tag teams in the indies over the last 5-10 years, we'll get another boom period in WWE.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 May 2017 21:18:42
Can only hope Jables. I love a proper tag match. Once the jaw is better, I expect decent things from the Revival, but they will need competition.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 May 2017 11:28:01
Well. That was a very strange PPV. A few solid matches, I enjoyed the tag team match with the heel turn and an open goal for the return of Broke Matt Hardy and I enjoyed the cruisers as well. Jericho winning was a surprise, which is always good, but I will be amazed if KO doesn't get his revenge this week.
But the rest?
Glad Strowman won and the you deserved it chants at Reigns mad me laugh, but the commentators constant upping of Reigns ruined the match for me.
Rollins/ Joe was a waste of time.
BUT the House of Horrors? What were they thinking of. There is experimenting and there is pure garbage. Guess where this one fits?

Agree0 Disagree0

01 May 2017 21:43:06
I enjoyed the house of horrors match was different was a cheap horror film strowman is my favourite right now just keeps getting better did not see Jericho winning was a nice surprise.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 May 2017 11:12:37
Most matches were solid but the House of Horrors match didn't work and Seth v Joe was decent but was missing something. I enjoyed all the other matches, especially Strowman! Braun is quality! Proper entertaining.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 May 2017 22:56:22
Decent ppv and a solid RAW. The future looks pretty meh for both shows until MitB though. So hopefully there are still some surprises in the coming weeks.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Apr 2017 15:05:18
I see Corbin has been suspended for a week for shoving an official.
This could do him good.
Corbin has the potential to be the top proper heel on Smackdown.
Miz and Wyatt have gone to the Red side and Owens will always have that comic element to him.
There is a large vacancy and Corbin can fill it.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Apr 2017 13:32:54
I see Owens as the smart heel who cheats to win and uses his brains as well as his in ring gas skills. I see Corbin as the solitary monster heel who just relies on his own toughness and will bully people and throw his weight around.

Corbin should get a good run with a mid card title. He can have a run with the US title once Owens and AJ have moved back into the main event picture. I fully expect AJ and Owens to be fighting over the WWE title in a few months time.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Apr 2017 20:48:03
The RAW ppv in July will be called 'Great Balls of Fire' (At least for now anyways. ) It's also where Lesnar will have his first title defense.

I'm hoping they keep using 60 year old songs as a ppv names, so we can get WWE presents: Tutti Frutti, At the Hop, Whole lotta Shakin' going on, or Jailhouse Rock.

WWE Danger Zone, would be the perfect name for a B ppv. (And I'm not just saying that because of my avatar. ) It's something that could be taken seriously but still has a little bit of the wrestling cheese factor.

I don't know how any of them are going to get through a promo without busting out laughing when they have to say or hear "Great Balls of Fire. "

29 Apr 2017 12:27:11
They should have jerry commentate just for the PPV. Him shouting out great balls of fire during a women's match, priceless!

Good Golly Bob Holly springs to mind.
Surely they can't call it Great Balls of Fire!

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Apr 2017 15:34:02
Part of me is saying, this has to be some swerve where they eventually reveal that 'Great Balls of Fire' is just a viral marketing campaign for season 2 of SRW.

The other part of me remembers all the crazy things they've done in the past that would easily make it believable. Plus I want to see how they would advertise it on Instagram. As they take each person with a match and give them their own post with a ppv name related statement. Like "X is looking for Payback" or "X is ready to get Extreme".

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Apr 2017 21:35:06

News and notes.
Mauro Ranallo has officially parted ways with WWE. Tajiri may be on his way out as well. (His departure likely being because of injuries. )

On RAW, Strowman will face Kalisto in a Dumpster match. "Monsters have weaknesses Braun, you are no monster. I challenge you to a dumpster match. Then I'll reveal the kind of monster trash you are. " -Tweet from Kalisto.

After RAW there will be an episode of Table for 3 with Styles, HBK, and Nash.

Still in the rumor column, Mike Bennett and Maria Kanellis are supposedly close to signing with WWE and are believed to be going right to Smackdown.

A topic on Wrestler entrances and theme tunes further down the page got me thinking. Are we witnessing a bit of a golden age for Wrestler entrances and theme tunes? There were obviously a lot of classics from the Golden Era and the Attitude era but then no real killer entrances for ages (Daniel Bryan and CM Punk were good though) I think we've seen some great ones over the last few years. Bray Wyatt, Finn Balor, Nakamura and Roode all have amazing entrances. Then Ambrose, Rollins, Owens all have good theme songs. I even like a lot of the Cruiser weights entrances like TJP, Aries and Neville. Some of the women have decent entrances to: Charlotte, Sasha and Alexa.

I think my favourites are probably Balor, Nakamura and Wyatt.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Apr 2017 18:47:58
The 80's had some classic entrance themes, but pretty much everyone bar Warrior and Hogan just walked to the ring. I do miss the little carriage made to look like a ring from early Manias though.
Currently love Roode's entrance be great to see how it translates to a bigger arena.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Apr 2017 01:41:41
I agree, but I think there are still a lot of talents that could use a change no matter if things are good, bad, or ugly. a lot of the theme songs just sound too generic imo. They don't have that specialness that makes the talent feel important. It'd be a good time to change a lot of them, as a lot of the people that could use it as part of a character make-over, are people that are in the early stages of a character change or are rumored to be getting one. I'd also like to see them use real bands more for entrance themes.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Apr 2017 08:22:45
The 80s and early 90s had the best entrance music imo when you hears the first second of anyone you knew who it was one of my all time favourite theme songs is the tag team demolition.

Apparently due to WWE wanting to increase sales in India, shame it'll push all their other viewers away.

19 Apr 2017 17:12:02
I'm getting behind it aswell I commented about him recently at how impressed I was with him recently if they go with his training harder than anyone else dieting harder than anyone else and working harder than anyone else gimmick because you can see the improvement in the ring and his physical condition.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Apr 2017 19:25:21
The 6way match, last night, should of been for the #1 contendership for Ryder's Internet title, not the WWE title. I realise it's almost certainly going to be just a one off filler feud and there were several talents they weren't going to use, but giving Jobber Mahal a shot is retarded. Almost as retarded as calling Nakamura "the artist".

Since they didn't or couldn't do any planning ahead, they should of just went with Harper and made it about Orton ending the Wyatt drama once and for all. There's going to be another filler ppv in July that would of been a lot better for Jinder. That'd give him two months of build up with the Bollywood Boyz to put him in a realistic spot to get a shot. They even have a couple of guys at the PC that they signed from India a couple of years ago that could act as bodyguards, if they really went with the Maharaja gimmick.

When you look at him, it is surprising how big he is. BUT from serial loser to number one contender? It just isn't right.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Apr 2017 12:14:39
I think he looks better than he has recently, his matches have always been decent which is why he is always welcomed back.

I suspect Smackdown may be about to show Ra up by making something of him.

I like the idea of him using a different type of race gimmick.

He is American, so him tlling the crowd they are booing him because he doesn't look like there America is class.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Apr 2017 15:44:17
He's Canadian.

The problem isn't his ability, the problem is that he's only won like 2 matches since the brand split. It'd be like hearing FIFA announce that the World Cup isn't happening, and instead you'll just get a game between the last winner and the Cleveland Browns.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Apr 2017 17:01:47
Jables, most posts I read of yours are often complaining that nothing changes and it is the same old faces getting pushes etc. Low and behold someone new gets a push and its like the world is ending! He gets heat, he gets over and it's something different!

It's not a push, and it's not change. It's basically WWE's version of the movie 'Carrie', without the telekinesis revenge killings at the end.

If getting "heat" is the only thing you need to have, Vickie Guerrero should of won the title about 10 years ago and should still be the champ today.

I didn't know he was Canadian, but that works as well, its kind of important he get stuck being an evil middle east guy.

One things for sure he is getting more discussion than he's ever had before, he will undoubtedly be a bigger star after his match with Randy.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Apr 2017 21:00:49
Really liking Strowman at the moment and that match with Show was the best big man match I have seen for a while.
What's not to like about a ring collapse, especially the way the ref fell off.
Did you see the ovation the crowd gave to Show after RAW finished? Quite touching really and Show looked choked up.

Agree0 Disagree0

You knew the ring was gong the second it was announced as they didn't have the video posts or apron.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Apr 2017 12:26:13
Like Jables, I am a tad bored so I will bring up an old topic.
Now that the Undertaker has apparently retired, who now has the best entrance to the ring?
Obvious candidates include Wyatt, Balor and Roode. Orton's is timeless, while Style's has grown on me.
Personally, I will go for Finn since it has the drama, crowd participation and the chance for an occasional full demon.
Anyone who says Zayn gets a helluva
kick.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Apr 2017 17:33:39
If they can get the atmosphere in the arenas/ stadiums they go to on the main rosters, to match NXT TakeOver shows. Balor's is definitely going to be almost impossible to beat.

Right now I'd have to go with Wyatt, until I have to start hearing Michael Cole ruin it by squawking, "He calls them his fireflies".

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Apr 2017 18:49:13
Right now i'd say Bray Wyatt followed by demon finn balor.

Still triple h. Orton and Bobby roode are class.

18 Apr 2017 10:15:57
So many look awesome on NXT because how compact it is.

Bray has done the best job of expanding it.

Finn as the Demon is obviously awesome.

I personally love the tube men on Baily's entrance.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Apr 2017 14:04:22
I really like KO's entrance, it was really good when he was coming out with his NXT belt when he first appeared on RAW, he was a badass then! Always like nikki Bella's aswell :)

I've seen the question asked, several places this weekend, If you could bring back a wrestler from the dead and have him face someone from the current roster, what would your matchup be. I'm bored, so here are my top 5.

1. Eddie Guerrero vs AJ Styles
2. Brian Pillman vs Dean Ambrose
3. Macho Man vs Sami Zayn
4. Chris Benoit vs Cesaro
5. Louie Spicolli vs Kevin Owens

What are some matchups you all would make?

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Apr 2017 10:15:38
Mr Perfect vs AJ Styles
Eddie Guerrero vs Finn Balor
Chris Benoît vs Cesaro
Owen Hart vs Chris Jericho

My history doesn't go back as far and of the dead that I'd watched, not many I'd look forward to watching again.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Apr 2017 12:07:27
Guerrero vs Styles
Rick Rude vs Rollins
British Bulldogs vs The Revival
Mr Perfect Vs Ambrose
Roddy Piper vs Jericho.

Mind you, I would have anyone against Rude.

18 Apr 2017 09:26:03
Guerrerro vs Orton. 2 guys who will do anything to win.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Apr 2017 10:18:36
Only half of the British Bulldogs are dead.

Davey Boy was a big favourite of mine though, love to see him throw around some big guys like Roman and Braun.

Well I watched the Nakamura matches you guys suggested and I must admit I was wrong, this guy will be lucky to make summerslam omg are you guys joking? Punch, kick, knee , punch, kick, knee, I'm still waiting on him performing a wrestling move, one thing is for sure the guy could not lace ajs boots when it come's to wrestling , that's not wrestling have you guys been hypnotized or something, strong style my arse . Every WRESTLING move in the matches with zayne and aj came from them .

Agree1 Disagree3

15 Apr 2017 10:13:41
Different strokes for different folks. I'm a huge nakamura fan but that's my opinion, I hope you're wrong and the fans take to him, crowd seem behind him.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Apr 2017 18:15:24
He's probably not going to ever win the WWE title. Sheamus, Andre, Iron Sheik, and Sammartino, are the only non-North Americans to ever win it. Sammartino was Vince Sr. Iron Sheik only got it because Backlund wouldn't job to Hogan. Andre had it for less than a day in 88'. Sheamus won his first one after he botched the finish and turned what was supposed to be a no contest into a win. When he stayed on the top rope instead of going through a table at the same time as Cena, like he was supposed to.

I figure he'll get a secondary title at some point this year, and then he'll end up on the show with the Universal title after next year's Mania. Winning it some time before the mini-tour of Japan in july.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Apr 2017 19:56:47
You say that and I know that you have watched some of Nakamura's previous matches, but Styles had a fantastic match with him at Wrestle Kingdom 10.
I love watching Nakamura. I think he is the best in ring performer there is out there. Couldn't lace Styles Boots? These 2 magnificent wrestlers bring the best out of each other.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Apr 2017 23:12:39
I don't like him, he's an ok wrestler but he is so boring to listen to. Give me Ronan and cena over him never mind styles.

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Apr 2017 12:10:09
This is one of those whatever floats your boat ones. Respect everyone's opinion and it may well be interesting to revisit after Summerslam when he has had a chance to show what he can do on Smackdown.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Apr 2017 10:20:55
I personally think Nakamura's charisma is his strong point, he says a lot for a bloke who rarely speaks.

Matches are decent.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Apr 2017 15:36:01
Heres a thought. Both in the same position. Both Want to perform but doctors won't clear them. But if they could be cleared for one last match. Gm vs Gm? Angle vs Bryan? That could be some match.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Apr 2017 19:19:39
I don't see them clearing DB until their hand is forced to do so. His contract isn't up until around SummerSlam next year. So SS 18' is probably the earliest ppv for a DB return. With WM 35 probably being the latest if he stays. If he leaves, Wrestle Kingdom 13?

All signs seem to point to Angle being cleared for WM 34, if not sooner. Even if DB could get cleared that early though, a match between the 2 would be unlikely as Lesnar, HHH, Shane, and maybe even Styles, would be more likely to get the match with Kurt.

Lesnar's contract is done after WM 34. So depending on how much Vince and Co. want to keep slobbing his knob, he might end up getting to pick who he wants to wrestle, no matter how much Vince wants Bork vs Boreman. Shane and HHH will of course, also make sure they have their Mania moments with Angle being a likely opponent for both.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Apr 2017 19:52:54
I wouldn't want either to do themselves harm, but if they ever could them both cleared (even for just one match) that would be freaking awesome!

From someone one tho doesn't watch nxt, is this the Nakamura you have all been talking about, just what type of character is he portraying? A drunken Japanese ladyboy, who is about as scary as billy gun playing mr ass, boy this guy better be able to wrestle better than anyone we have ever seen if he wants to get over, at the moment the guy will be lucky to still be around for summer slam .

Agree3 Disagree3

13 Apr 2017 14:39:52
Maybe you should watch NXT then, the guy is amazing!

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Apr 2017 15:09:26
It's part of his charisma he is The king of strong style and will have you purring like a kitten at his matches.
For a hint of what to come watch not take over Dallas.
His match with sami zayne was breath taking.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Apr 2017 15:51:47
He's a storyteller wrestler, so it'll be hard to understand the hype until he has his first 20+ minute ppv match. His eventual match with Ziggler will probably be a glorified squash match, so there probably won't be much to excite anyone that hasn't seen him. Maybe at MitB or the july ppv he'll get a full showcase against KO?

Agree1 Disagree0

13 Apr 2017 22:53:50

I have to agree in part, the first time I saw him roll up in NXT, my first thought was "wtf is that, he's more camp than Louis Spence" but when you watch him wrestling it is a masterpiece! Like Lantern said, check out takeover Dallas vs Sami zayn or vs aj styles at wrestle kindom 10. both are quality matches.

For a jobber I've been impressed with jinder Mahal recently. He's got a good look and is good in ring but his poor booking in the past might get held against him. that forearm smash to balor on raw that left friction burns down his face was brilliant.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Apr 2017 09:41:25
I like Jahinder, and he definitely paid some dues.

He could be more than a sidekick or a evil foreigner, just needs to find the right angle to launch him, and have the company get behind him.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Apr 2017 11:36:18
I think his new angle could work about him putting more effort in than anyone else he looks like a monster now roids or not he looks better hopefully they see him as more than cannon fodder.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Apr 2017 14:55:20
The forearm to Balor, legit caused a concussion.

He is supposedly going to be pushed as a midcard heel on SD. Which in reality will probably just mean he'll continue to get consistent tv time. After the inevitable Orton heel turn, they should pair him with Ziggler to bulk up the tag division.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Apr 2017 16:06:37
With McIntyre on NXT, it is nice to see all the members of 3MB back. It is very hard to think of 3 talented wrestlers with such a bad package to deal with than 3MB.

on a funny note fans have started a petition online to have big Braun fired for his over the top beating on reigns.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Apr 2017 00:09:38
There was one I read that started with "Braun needs to be fired" but, later in their ramblings, stated that moving him to SD was an acceptable option for them as well.

It also featured a broken english rant in the comment section, from a, presumably, young Indian fellow. Who surprisingly, supported Braun and wished he had done more to Reigns.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Apr 2017 09:42:38
I thought it was a great segment, the way he kept going back for an additional pop every time was top drawer.

That was the best backstage beat down in years! I was laughing and shouting at my TV at the same time. I love it when the wrestling goes OTT from time to time. I thought it was really well done. If anything I was just disappointed that Strowman didn't turn up at the end of the show and burn the hospital down! Lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Apr 2017 16:02:57
Now they are selling numerous injuries to Reigns. I dare say Cole will almost have an accident as he gets over excited about the Big Dog's 'courage' when he refuses to listen to doctors orders.

12 Apr 2017 18:26:31
I don't think smackdown have. On one roster you have nakamura, owens, zayn, tye, styles, cena a well booked corbin amongst others. SD legitimately have the best workers who will put on a grade matches. I think they got the better of the draw really.

Agree1 Disagree0

12 Apr 2017 20:12:02
I agree smack down is looking great the matches to look forward too Owens styles cena Orton zigler and more all vs Nakamura. bright days ahead.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Apr 2017 20:16:47
Cena may not be around for much, if anything, before SummerSlam. Rusev may not be ready to return before SS. I wouldn't rule out Shane having a match at SS. There are also rumors that there will be another shake-up after SS as well.

To me, it't going to depend on how people are used on each brand and what twists and turns happen. Maybe RAW ends up having an epic IC title scence for most of the summer with Ambrose, Rollins, Reigns, Joe, Wyatt, Balor, Miz, Jericho, Cesaro, and Sheamus. While SD spends too much time on people like Mojo, Jinder, and Tamina. Or maybe we get those dream matches on SD with Styles, Nakamura, KO, Zayn, etc., while it's LolRomanWins on RAW.

We also don't know if there were any behind the scenes personnel shake-ups either. So for all we know, the person/ people that helped lead to the higher-ups making a bunch of good decision on SD moved to RAW and SD is left with the RAW person/ people that suggested the never ending Rollins/ Reigns KO/ Jericho tv "feud".
