Anyone think neville will kain the cruiserweight division.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Sep 2016 10:47:15
Im hoping so. He doesn't seem to be up to much else recently. I would Imagine Sin Cara will join them too. Neville has worked with quite a lot of these guys in the division in his time in the Indys so i'm sure the match quality will be great from the get go.

Also I absolutely love TJ Perkins' new entrance.

Agree1 Disagree0

28 Sep 2016 11:28:00
Yeah TJ Perkins new entrance was cool (I am an 80's kid though) i'm a big fan of his. I agree, hopefully Neville will join the Cruiser weights. It'd get his character back on track and the matches would be great. I just hope they book it properly. Nearly ALL of Raw's problems are down to poor booking.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Sep 2016 14:49:11
After seeing nese on Raw a neville vs nese match would be awesome.
I gained so much respect for tj through the cwc.
Didn't realise till I saw his twitter handle he was manic.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Sep 2016 18:00:29
Nese tagging with Neville and having a feud against Cedric Alexander and Rich Swann, would be really cool imo. Position the winners as threats to the CW title and the tag titles.

TNA's fate may be decided by this friday. It's said that TNA is completely out of money and it doesn't look like they'll be able to afford to do the next episode of Impact let alone their upcoming ppv. Billy Corgan wants to buy TNA but it will take him awhile to get the money together. TNA is also reportedly so far in debt that they owe more money than they would be able to sell the company for.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Sep 2016 07:32:02
A would actually like to see wwe buy it. It's not great wwr scooping up other companies but tna is basically dead anyway and there's a cupple performers wwe could use and the library of matches would be good for the network joe vs styles vs daniels for instance is a all time classic.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Sep 2016 08:44:31
I thinks its perfect timing for WWE. With the roster split the shows could do with a little more depth in the talent pool. Obviously not everyone will get in but guys like Galloway, EC3 and The Hardys will get back in. Andrew Everett, Trevor Lee and Xema Ion to the Cruiserweights? James Storm to join Bobby Roode in NXT? Lots of great opportunities. Also with the library it means they could make some pretty damn good DVDs and shows about the X Division or the careers of AJ Styles, Samoa Joe, Austin Aires Ect.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Sep 2016 10:54:36
Now they've done the brand split it could be worth WWE buying them out. It would add a lot of back catalogue to their library (AJ styles, Sting, Angle and Joe will all have loads of content on there) and they could use some of the talent: Broken Matt Hardy, Brother Nero Jeff Hardy, EC3, Lashley, Moose could all be added to the main rosters. There's plenty of others who could go to NXT.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Sep 2016 10:58:26
Luke T, I forgot about Xema Ion, last I heard he was diagnosed with cancer or something similar. Has had made a recovery from that? I hope he has, he was a good talent I thought (good heel) Drew Galloway could be a decent assert to onr of the main rosters and Storm joining up with Rooney to reform Beer Money would be ace. It'd be a good way to get both over before splitting them and pushing Roode.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Sep 2016 12:39:11
Yep he is back now and is putting on some really good matches. He got stuck as a 3rd wheel to the Broman's Tag team for a while but now he has gone back on his own he has looked very good.

I'm not sure if he ever had cancer but he did have a tumour in his stomach that was believed to be cancerous but it turned out not to be. I think he has even been the X Division champion this year too.

I record TNA each week and fast forward through it so I keep up with most things but miss quite a bit too.

I think Galloway and EC3 are certs as they have been working a lot with Evolve recently and with WWE's relationship with Evolve I wouldn't be surprised if it was a chance to get a chance to see them first hand and have a quick word in the ear.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Sep 2016 17:30:52
Cheers for that Luke T, that's good news for Xema. I think a lot of the talent would be deployed in NXT (apart form the ones we mentioned) If WWW did buy TNA then I wonder if they'd keep the X Division title active in some capacity? Maybe introduce a secondary title for NXT if their roster could cope, or do it as a one off tournament/ PPV/ Network special for NXT.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Sep 2016 18:32:48
There's a rumor that I just saw that claims that WWE has bought TNA. Probably won't find out for sure until friday at the earliest. If it's true, we should be in for an even more interesting fall and winter.

Rodrick Strong and Big Damo signings should be made official soon, there's likely to be at least a couple of call ups after the Survivor Series NXT TakeOver, and there may be some more big signings around january with the likes of Jay Lethal and the Young Bucks.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Sep 2016 20:20:53
I said earlier that RAW is a bit messy at the moment and COC did nothing to make me change my mind. Backlash blew it out if the water.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Sep 2016 20:30:01
Just finished watching it there. Sheamus cesaro was match of the night for me.

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Sep 2016 21:19:47
By an absolute street Haggis. Which speaks volumes.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Sep 2016 21:35:12
Have to agree there haggis, shows how tough Cesaro is especially after that dive to the outside.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Sep 2016 21:59:44
Cesaro vs Sheamus could of been a strong MotY candidate if they would of just went with a Hollywood ending.

Since the Smackdown right after Backlash, I've been more hype for No Mercy than I have been for CofC.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Sep 2016 07:27:29
It was some match lads stupid finish though still made cesaro look good that he was still in the ring after that war.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Sep 2016 14:29:21
Some really good matches, some that didn't live up to the hype, and some really terrible booking. Owens v Rollins disappointed me, the last 5-10 minutes were good but it took ages to get going and just wasn't as good as I expected. Women's triple threat DID NOT deliver at all. Add in weird booking for the Cesaro v Sheamus match, the tag match and the title match (ending was far to over booked) and it doesn't make for a great PPV.

Raw has just as much talent as Smackdown but it is booked terribly. The writers for RAW suck and are being shown up big time but the Smackdown writers.

Smackdown is greater than the sum of its parts. Raw is far worse than the sum of its parts.

Agree1 Disagree0

27 Sep 2016 20:08:08
Got it in one Monkeyman. Smackdown is just far fresher while RAW is dragging it's knuckles, despite the best efforts of Jericho and KO who did make me laugh on RAW. I'd put the RAW writers ON THE LIST.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Sep 2016 21:15:29
There was a little twitter exchange between Daniel Bryan and Cesaro this morning, that I pray leads to Cesaro going to Smackdown. If they're not going to use Neville, they should have him make the jump as well.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Sep 2016 21:34:19
Cesaro styles for the championship on a ppv would be a 5 star match. Would love to see cesaro jump ship. Neville could be a big part of the cruiserweights on raw tho. Some good matches there if given 10 plus minutes.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Sep 2016 18:51:32
I agree that Neville could be great in the CW division, but they haven't done anything with him in that or any other division. It's been 4 weeks in a row he hasn't been on RAW. While SD on the other hand has found something to do for the Ascension, Jack Swagger, and Kane.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Sep 2016 19:55:31
What does everyone think of this tomspiracy where Tom Phillips appears to bend his knees and slouch when interviewing wrestlers. It reeks of something vince would do imo lol. Pretty sad thing to make a guy do

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Sep 2016 20:18:38
There have been lots of comments about ho much of a git Phillips is, and if these are even half true, I have absolutely no sympathy for him.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Sep 2016 20:30:56
It's stupid, but in a weird way it's turned into a positive thing for them. It's given the smarks something to play with, and helps keep them engaged with the product. It also seems like they're starting to run with it some. Especially with KO and Jericho.

They need to move him to a role on RAW, like Renee has on Smackdown. Where he hosts the preshow and stuff like that. Start doing the little things to make it feel like a true brand split. Plus they have JoJo to make everyone look bigger. Plus Plus, that a$$.

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Sep 2016 20:31:16
Av never herd any of them mate cany comment on that. Just seems like a incredibly stupid thing to do to make people seem bigger lol there a photo where neville looks about 4 inches taller than him.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Sep 2016 10:37:05
They've been doing it since day one, trying to make superstars seem larger than life.

They shouldn't make Tom sand in a hole of anything, they just simply shouldn't have hired him.

Non wrestling staff should be 5'9 tops.

Tiny refs, small ring staff, anyone who might stand next to Kevin Owens and make him just look like a normal guy should never be allowed to standby him.

It really is basics.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Sep 2016 15:47:38
Long time reader first time poster.
Loving wwe at the moment for the first time in a long time. Loving the new brand split and feel all the titles are relevant again. New stars are being made and not watching the same boring 3/4/5 wrestlers in the main event. What does everyone else think about the current wwe?

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Sep 2016 16:21:22
Yeah I agree mate. The brand split has done wonders for both shows. There's still room for improvement, and I hope we don't see to much of an authority angle on RAW (with HHH, Steph and Foley all vying for power) but by and large I am enjoying both shows.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Sep 2016 16:36:15
I just hope they continue in this way and not let things get stale again. I would love a massive shock to happen, something that gets the whole wrestling world talking, everything seems to be heading in the right direction but needs some shockers I think?

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Sep 2016 20:34:18
Smackdown has benefited enormously from the split, but RAW to me seems very messy. I like the fact that KO is the champ, but everything else seems to be repeat, repeat and repeat again.
Owens fights Reigns, then fights him again. Charlotte fights Sasha again and again. New Day v Club time after time and don't get me started on Cesaro and Sheamus.
Smackdown is a breath of fresh air, but RAW is being ground down by the length of the show, pushing Reigns again and attempting to bring back the attitude era without the attitude.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Sep 2016 09:53:50
They have far better structure to both shows now that they don't have to force everyone in to a 20 minute segment.

The shows seem to have various running themes as well as on going hype for ppv matches lasting weeks.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Sep 2016 19:12:41
Dave Meltzer apparently thought it was a bad decision to have Cena lose on Smackdown. In my opinion, I thought it was brilliant.

Cena still looked strong by being the first person to kick out of Dirty Deeds in a long time, Ambrose gets a big win to re-affirm his place at the top of the card, and the surprise roll up for the win is debatably the most shocking moment of the year while also potentially being a good steppingstone for the current and future storylines.

I still don't want to see Cena get #16, but at least for the first time in about 12 years they're actually having him in a storyline with substance and layers. If they can keep this up, when the inevitable happens, I might be inclined to at least give him a non-sarcastic golf clap.

Agree2 Disagree0

22 Sep 2016 21:55:30
I suspect that Cena will still come out on top in the long run.
Cena/ Styles has been more attractive than Ambrose/ Styles.
Letting Ambrose win in the short term means 3 big dogs at the top of Smackdown.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Sep 2016 01:45:11
I really hope they give Ambrose and Syles the time and freedom to have a great match next week. They finally quit having Ambrose act like Dude Love trying to be Stone Cold. Now they just need to let him quit wrestling like John Cena trying to be like the Macho Man, and allow him to be the combination of Bret Hart, William Regal, the character of Mickey Knox in Natural Born Killers, and Gene Wilder that he is.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Sep 2016 11:20:09
Jables, that's a hell of a description of almost anything. I have always thought (since that very first "nope") that Dean Ambrose was kind of ripping off Health Ledger's Joker. Cool but mental.

I hope that by the time the Royal Rumble comes around they've used Cena to push AJ and Ambrose even higher.

Deep down Cena will always be a big deal, his win loss record doesn't really count for much f him anymore, but it looks great on the cv of the guys who have beat him.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Sep 2016 16:59:37
The Joker comparison is definitely understandable. They even basically outright stated it, when he and Cena had the uneasy alliance when they were both going after Rollins after the Shield split. When he was in CZW he still had an anarchistic persona, but he wasn't comedic. He was a lot more like a sexually deviant serial killer. Thus the Mickey Knox comparison. Obviously there are an infinite amount of things he did in CZW that he could never do in WWE, but they could replace the overtly sexual and violent things he did with undertones and the power of suggestion. While letting him have the attitude that he had in CZW.

Cena will get #16 eventually, but the goal should definitely be to have Ambrose and Styles viewed/ treated at least as equals.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Sep 2016 19:50:04
I have a sneaky feeling that factors will conspire to mean that Ambrose won't regain the title. I can also see this happening with Rollins and Reigns.
Rumours have been flying around for a while that the Shield will reform, and having the 3 of them being let down and losing dodgy decisions, who else can they trust but their old brotherhood?

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Sep 2016 11:33:59
I agree it was was the right idea to have Ambrose win. As if Cena needs any wins?!? Dave Meltzer makes the odd decent point but he comes out with some rubbish as well. I can't see them doing a Shield reunion yet. I think the crowd would rubbish on it. Roman is too tainted and even Ambrose has had a few mixed reactions here and there. They should leave it a few years IMO so that the fans can cool their hatred of Reigns. The nostalgia effect will come into play if they leave it a bit longer. There would need to be a really dominant stable for them to go against. It would take 2 years to build up a stable worthy of facing them, IMO.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Sep 2016 02:09:07
I really don't get why some people on here and a lot more fans are obsessed with hating Cena and saying he sucks. Honestly this past year or so he really upped his in ring game and isn't pandering to children when he's on the mic. he's looked and made Ambrose and Styles both look strong. But I do think everyone needs to get over the fact that he was shoved down our throats several years ago. That wasnt his fault it was Vince's, when will people learn that you shouldn't hate Cena its Vince who constantly shoves people down our throats that you should hate.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Sep 2016 11:27:28
I think the point is that Cena doesn't need the win and Ambrose does. I agree, Cena has been pretty good for a while now. Since the US open challenge matches I've been pretty impressed by his work. there's a few too many false falls and kicking out of finishers in his matches still, but Cena usually puts on good matches and is good on the mic (despite cutting essentially the same promo every time)

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Sep 2016 09:57:30
The argument against Cena losing too often is it lowers his stock.

There is a air shout that losing to AJ then Ambrose back to back has helped both of them less than if either one had done it alone.

I personally see someone pinning Cena clean as big deal for the guy that does it regardless.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Sep 2016 13:42:00
anyone agree that it wouuld be pointless if they do lesnar vs goldberg?
it doesn't appeal to me at all, would rather see brock win the rumble with owens holding on to the belt and have them face each other at mania

Agree0 Disagree1

21 Sep 2016 15:48:06
As a Wrestlemania match, I think it would be pointless because it wouldn't bring in/ back the fans to warrant the importance they would try to place on the match. I feel it would be a match that would make sense under the right circumstances though. I have no desire to see it either, but at the same time I think it could be beneficial if it were to take place as a secondary main event on a brand specific ppv.

I would have Steph and/ or Foley make Goldberg's return a "Christmas present" to the RAW fans, and have it lead to a match between Goldberg and Big Show at the Rumble. With the winner getting the #30 spot or something. That leads to Lesnar screwing over Goldberg again. Instead of Mania, the match between the 2 happens at the Feb/ March ppv. The winner faces the Universal Champ at Mania, and the loser faces the loser of the title match. So instead of Lesnar vs Goldberg at Mania, we get something like Owens vs Lesnar and Reigns vs Goldberg.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Sep 2016 23:11:18
Goldberg is gony be rusty as a old Renault 5. Brock doesn't to rubbish for me these days. If his heart was in it we would have deadly matches the man is a specimen. I just want brock to put over a new star then leave. And goldberg would be minted for a cupple weeks apearance then leave aswell. It's about the new era not old farts who appear now and again. As a kid who grew up with austin and the rock I don't even care about their appearances anymore never mind 2 guys who spent 2 years in wwe.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Sep 2016 11:49:53
Don't be bringing Renault 5's into this. I had a 1985 one as my first car it was a great car, not one spot of rust on it. A modern day classic, unlike what any match with Goldberg would be now.
I'm intrigued by the prospect of a Goldberg return but for me it would have to be done right and with a few matches to get rid of the ring rust. If he is brought back for just one match I'm not interested. He also needs to be booked better than his first run in WWE.

Agree1 Disagree0

22 Sep 2016 18:34:27
Hahah no offence mate sorry lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Sep 2016 21:49:21
I had a Renault 5. It was really rubbish. I fear any Goldberg return would be the same.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Sep 2016 01:59:05
They only got about 10 months of part time work out him in his last run, and that ended over 12 years ago. The first car I had lasted me about 3 months before I destroyed the transmission. If they're lucky, I think that's about what they could get out of Goldberg. Only because you wouldn't have to worry about Goldberg going 110-120 mph. He's old so he'd probably keep it 5-10mph under the speed limit.

Agree1 Disagree0

23 Sep 2016 11:27:18
Goldberg vs Brock as a one off spectacle could be good, but Brock losing would kill the rub he can one ay paon, and Goldberg coming back for a one match loss would be pointless.

I say have Goldberg comeback solely on PPV for a year and rack up 12 wins against people we would half expect them to beat, make it seem like you're getting an undefeated Brock vs. an undefeated Goldberg at Mania, then let someone else beat Brock at the Rumble or Feb.

You'd massively put over Roman, Rollins, Finn, Owens basically whoever you give it to, and still be left with Brock reasserting himself as the man to put Goldberg down at Mania.

Goldberg gets 12/ 15 great nights for a big pile of money, WWE stuns the world, Brock is set to go again, and somebody becomes the biggest star on the roster.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Sep 2016 11:36:32
I am struggling to think of a match I want to see less then Lesnar v Goldberg. I have NEVER rated Goldberg. I think he straight up sucks. I like Lesnar but the Suplex City gimmick should have run its course now. I hate Suplex City matches. The old Lesnar was waaaaay better.

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Sep 2016 21:19:36
The cwc was outstanding shame it's over but glad it will be a weekly event on raw but does anyone think they will water it down as they usually do would be a waste if they do.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Sep 2016 23:45:45
Outside of a few moves, they didn't do too much in the CWC that they wouldn't be able to do on RAW. To me the biggest determining factor will be time. If they get the time to do their thing, they'll succeed. If they get treated like the WWFE lightweight/ cruiserweights of the past, where they very rarely got more than 6 to 8 minute matches or got turned into comedy acts. This generation will end up fading away like their predecessors.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Sep 2016 15:28:28
It didn't do all that much for me.

I was enthralled by Jack Sabre's reversal fests, but the flips don't do a great deal anymore.

With guys like Finn and Rollins doing flips and springboards under a "heavyweight" brand its jut not as exciting for me.

20 years ago, when I first started seeing lucha action it seemed incredible, now everyone kind of incorporates it in to their style.

Agree0 Disagree1

19 Sep 2016 19:57:11
It's the speed go at that is so different. Everyone tried to incorporate Barcelona' style as well but couldn't match it.
Plus anything that can help RAW fill it's programme can only help.
Will be interesting to see if the make an appearance tonight.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Sep 2016 21:41:16
Tonight is when they start coys. that is a perfect way you have compared the products.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Sep 2016 12:08:14
I'm more impressed by Kevin Owens grabbing a chin lock than a 200lb guy doing a moonsault.

No flips, just fists.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Sep 2016 19:58:50
Fair enough mate. Each to their own, but I genuinely think the cruisers can offer something different as well as having the existing roster.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Sep 2016 10:14:07
The cruiserweight was the best part of raw really impressed by the moves they where allowed to do.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Sep 2016 12:04:16
One thing that stood out in the Raw match by comparison to the CWC tournament was they cut to a break during the match.

Pretty irritating.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Sep 2016 19:15:42
I watch it on wwe online so don't get adverts cancelled sly altogether out of my hatred towards them lol.

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Sep 2016 10:52:02
Rumours are flying around that WWE have put in a bid for TNA. All I can think they would do is close it down, nick a few of the wrestlers and chuck the old shows on the Network.
I really hope someone else gets TNA, gives it a complete makeover and we have a decent alternative to WWE to join the ranks of ROH etc.

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Sep 2016 18:07:10
To me, the only value TNA has is in their video library. So I'll be happy if WWE buys them. Plus I think they're too far gone to be saved. To be crass TNA = Charlie Sheen.

I think ROH is the promotion that needs to be sold. They could really use a Ted Turner type, with loads of desire and money, to turn it from a "nice alternative" to real competition for WWE.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Sep 2016 15:30:44
Deep down you can't do a complete career dvd set of people like Flair, Sting, Foley, Hardy, Angle, Styles, Hogan, and the like unless you can get their library.

I'm sure the WWE can get anyone they want within a year, its the library that's worth the money to Vince.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Sep 2016 11:42:54
Broken Matt won't be happy working for Meek Mahon! As Bessex has said the library would be decent and would fill in gaps for the careers of Flair, Sting, Angle, Styles, etc
There's also some decent talent they could pinch (not loads but a few: Broken Matt, EC3, Lashley, Moose)

Can anyone else agree with me that the wrestler Mr perfect when we all watched wwf was curt henning? Not curt hennig. It's changed to hennig on everything

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Sep 2016 10:10:36
I honestly can't remember, I remember him as Mr Perfect, then he went to be Curt Hennig when he joined the NWO?

I might be as simple as his name is Curt Hennig and his stage name was Curt Henning.

I remember when Tazz was Taz, but sort of licencing nonsense made him change it.

I perform under Bezzecks.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Sep 2016 14:24:19
I have always remembered it as Hennig. According to Wikipedia (Granted not the best source) His ring names were only ever Curt Hennig And Mr Perfect.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Sep 2016 18:40:39
Ive always remembered him as curt henning.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Sep 2016 19:57:09
As far as I remember, he was one of the few who actually performed under his real name - Curtis Hennig. I think people wrongly automatically assumed his surname was Henning.
I always liked him. A really good, old fashioned heel, cut from the same cloth as my favourite, Rick Rude, who also plays in the confusing surname bracket as his real name was Richard Rood.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Sep 2016 15:33:09
Wiki say Curtis Axle's real name is Joe Hennig.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Sep 2016 19:52:39
Wiki says all sorts of bollocks. Mind you, so do I so which of us is wrong? Jables, over to you mate.

{Ed007's Note - I've always known him as Curt Henning and used to have to keep correcting people who said Henning, I think it's just lazy reading - your brain thinks it know what is written without really looking at it.
Mr Perfect's dad was called Larry 'The Axe' Hennig, and Perfect's daughter who wrestles is called Amy Hennig, not to be confused with Amy Hennig who is a big deal in the video games world.}

I'm still trying to process the awesomeness of the entire show.

The one thing I can say is, whatever they do next and in the future. (There's rumblings of a Women's tournament possibly happening early next year. ) I hope they do the finals away from Full Sail. Not only because that crowd is getting worse and worse with every passing event, but also because I think it's needed. Partly because of the success and partly for inclusiveness. After the CWC, any tournament they do like it will be a hot ticket. And any tournament that focuses on having the best talent from all over the world, should have it's finally in venues all over the world.

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Sep 2016 10:12:38
Full Sail is set up as a training rig for production staff and wrestlers isn't it.

That's why they do it there, its all but free.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Sep 2016 20:12:56
Having everything but the finally at Full Sail, is understandable for the reasons you mentioned bessex, but I think it would benefit them to have the finally in other places. Especially if they're going to have the finally be a special event/ ppv.

For me the Miz is the best in WWE on the mic, i'm really diggin the whole thing with DB. I really wouldn't mind seeing him eventually win the main title on smackdown within the next year.

AJ Styles has to be one of if not the best in the world today every feud he's been in since coming to WWE has been phenomenal.

Ambrose, they seem to be close to turning him heel but I could see him be a really good tweener doesn't care who it is and will hit DD.

Cena honestly since mania ish his wrestling has been a lot better, and the fact that he isn't being shoved down our throats makes him more tolerable. If he goes away from being overly PG in his promos, like he's been doing since Styles feud I could really buy into him again! Finally does anyone think its funny that when Rock and Cena met up at WM 4 ish years ago he made a big deal about the rock leaving and how he's never going to do that, yet being a part timer is basically leaving?

Agree1 Disagree1

14 Sep 2016 14:03:02
The Miz has always been awesome, a heel people can really hate. I'm not sure he is the best, but certainly a great promo, solid in ring, willing to do what he is asked. Great superstar.

AJ has done well, and is enjoying the fruit of that labour, a top tier title less than 9 months after debut.

You can't turn Ambrose heel by making him more edgy, if he acts like that people will cheer him, especially over Cena.

Cena worked the full program going in to Summerslam, sure he missed a few weeks, but I think we are getting ahead of ourselves if we are going to throw him in with Taker and HHH.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Sep 2016 16:42:24
I think Miz and Jericho are both back on top form after a few years of not being at their best. Miz's rivalry with DB is great and he is doing a very good job, both as a heel and in making the IC Title seem important again.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Sep 2016 21:23:39
Jericho segments with Tom Phillips always make me laugh. Jericho and Miz are doing really well right now.
And bessex I agree with you on the Ambrose turning heel thing not a good idea but seems like he's going to be just my opinion.

About Cena maybe people feel like he's a part timer now because he's not in the main event every night and constantly winning titles or being in the mix, but I did notice he got bleeped last night when a year ago cena wouldve made a kid joke.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Sep 2016 20:46:28
How far has Jack Swagger fallen that he is used to push Jinder Mahal?
Surely he has got to say enough is enough.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Sep 2016 14:06:18
The problem is he has nothing to give.

Gimmicks crap, Cesaro has stolen his in ring personality, and frankly does it better.

In this era where the jobbers are going back to being guys that come and go he is in danger of being wiped out.

There is good money to be made as the guy Braun Strowman beats after he has done in 5 nobodies, that following month he will want to go through guys like Sin Cara and Swagger, that's how he keeps a job.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Sep 2016 16:43:30
I think Swagger should be used as a jobber. He hasn't really got a lot else to offer.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Sep 2016 08:06:47
He is now on smackdown so hopefully he will get a push.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Sep 2016 17:08:13
I agree with the person on wreddit who stated that the 'Make - Great Again' gimmick should of went to Swagger.

I assume Swagger will job to Corbin to start. After that, since it looks like he'll be around for awhile. I still want to see him join up with the Ascension. I think Konnor and Swagger together could be a fun Hoss tag team. Viktor could then take on more of a manager role.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Sep 2016 10:18:08
Swags does seem to have a following, people are always say things like "hopefully he will get a push"

I feel like he has had a few chances and it always falls flat.

I'm not saying he can't have another go, but with so many youngsters and new to WWE stars coming in, is Swaggs really due to move away from making people look good?

Jobber to the stars as they say.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Sep 2016 14:20:01
I think the reason Swagger lost to Jinder was to make it look like Raw didn't want him anymore and were not going to renew his contract so that he could move to Smackdown. They knew the rosters are a little weighted so they needed someone to jump ship. Now the roster split has happened maybe Swagger could be used a little more than a Jobber. A decent mid card feud could get him some decent momentum.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Sep 2016 15:34:28
Cant see it, he has been passed the ball so many times, gets nowhere.

Seems like they are in a much better place since mania imo.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Sep 2016 14:11:19
The shows all seem to mean something again.

Just as an example on this weeks Raw

*Best of Seven
*A main event that had a point
*An opening match to declare a women's no 1 contender
*A backstage skit to set up the Shining Stars vs C&E
*Multiple interview spots with Rollins to set up his interference.
*A surprise return to set up another ppv match
*A gm that is trying to be fair, rather than screwing the good guys to promote the bad guys.

That's just off the top of my head, its everything I have moaned about for the last few years.

Great structure.

What are people's predictions for Backlash?
I'll go for:

Ambrose v AJ Styles - Ambrose to win in dodgy circumstances (AJ foot on ropes or something) set up another match where AJ wins the title.

Women's 6 Pack Challenge - Becky Lynch to win

Tag Titles - USO's to win, set up a feud with American Alpha

Orton v Wyatt - Orton to win (even though Wyatt needs it way more, I think this will be the one main they get wrong)

Miz v Ziggler - Miz to win via Shenanigans.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Sep 2016 15:02:22
I think my favourite word is shenanigans.
USOs to beat the Hype Bros, but Slater and Rhyno win the final to give Smaackdown their own comedy tag team champs.
Lynch to win
Wyatt to beat Orton
Miz to beat Ziggler
Ambrose to retain.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Sep 2016 16:16:57

if i'm honest I hope i'm very wrong lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Sep 2016 17:46:02
Styles wins, Ambrose retains. I'd love it if DB's "prediction" of a 60 minute time limit draw came true, but I'm guessing Ambrose gets himself DQed. I hope they have a good match before hand, and the finish isn't stupid.

Becky wins the SD Womens title. Unless the match ends up just being a plot device for Total Bellas, in particular for Miss Cena. I pray to the wrestlig gods that it's not.

Miz wins clean. Hopefully this leads to Ziggler finally "breaking" and re-inventing himself. (Something original and not Hardy like. )

Beauty and the Man Beast wins the SDTT. Usos beat Hype Bros in the 2nd chance match, and the AA cost the Usos in the title match.

Finally I'll go with Wyatt beating Orton with the help of someone or something. I'll guess that either Rowan and/ or a returning Harper help him win, or they have some kind of "spooky" distraction costing Orton.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Sep 2016 22:25:09
i'm glad I was very wrong. really enjoyed backlash.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Sep 2016 15:46:06
Yeah I mostly enjoyed Backlash as well. There were one or two things that were weird (like Kane beating Wyatt, even with interference Wyatt should have won) but most things made sense and we're done well.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Sep 2016 18:17:19
I'm not happy about Bray losing, but it's more understandable/ acceptable if it ends up leading to Wyatt winning his match or the series of matches against Orton and if Kane is used to help put over a young talent.

Does anyone think that Punk has a hope of winning his UFC fight on Saturday?
While a part of me will always admire the courage that he has shown in stepping into the octagon, a bigger part cringes at what is likely to happen.
A 37 year old with shot knees and having suffered from concussions in the past in his first (and I hope last) match against a hungry 24 year old who looks like he has just found his golden ticket.
I hope Punk leaves with his health intact, but I fear that both his dignity and his ego will be left n the ring behind him.
I know Punk says he wants to prove something to himself, but his trainers and the powers that be at UFC should have told him thanks for the offer, but no thanks like they did with Shaq.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Sep 2016 12:33:27
I don't know anything about UFC so I could be way off here, but I reckon Punk will get destroyed. I can't see him lasting more than 3 fights max.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Sep 2016 16:24:46
I can't believe he is as bad as his documentary is making him look.

Everything has been geared to making it look like he is going to be killed.

Hope we are in for a surprise.

Agree0 Disagree1

09 Sep 2016 16:57:39
I'm into my ufc and av no saw much of the opponent but a think punk will do ok. He's been trainin for long enuff to be good at it now and if his coaches didn't think he was ready it proberly wouldn't take place imo.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Sep 2016 20:10:28
Unfortunately I can believe he is as bad as the documentary has made him out to be. UFC are putting on so many shows now and need names and stories.
He would never have been allowed to compete even 2 years ago.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Sep 2016 14:57:11
Well, hate to say I told you, but I really hope Punk realises he is on to a loser here and packs it in.
Nothing but respect for him trying, but he could get badly hurt.

Agree1 Disagree0

11 Sep 2016 16:14:07
He was destroyed no doubt about it but it's a real tough sport and he will get hurt no doubts about it.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Sep 2016 17:11:33
I think he'll give it one more go and if he doesn't look competitive then he'll call it quits. That was more one sided than a Nia Jax or Braun Stowman match!

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Sep 2016 17:59:16
The match last night looked more like a street fight that you'd see on Worldstarhiphop, than a UFC fight.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Sep 2016 19:01:37
I for one am very proud of him .
To step up like that took a massive amount of guts.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Sep 2016 13:09:09
Impressed he did it, but realistically he obviously isn't in that top 1% of fighters that can hang in the UFC.

I'm sure go back to writing comics.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Sep 2016 16:22:54
Finally the Usos have turned heel. the crowd have been booing them for months and I can only assume its a combination of being stale and an elegance to Roman Reigns. Going heel may help revamp them. I'm still not a fan but surely they will be better heels than faces.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Sep 2016 20:35:34
Agree with you on that 1 mate.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Sep 2016 07:24:50
It's just about time. I used to have a little time for them. it has worn off after years of the same gimmick could be a good change.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Sep 2016 09:28:13
I actually think they deserve a lot of credit for bringing back proper tag team wrestling.

A proper tag team, let's see what they can do now.

Agree1 Disagree0

08 Sep 2016 11:32:44
I'm with Bessex on this one. The Usos are a natural tag team, not a manufactured one. Should be interesting to see how they go now. A proper heel team to replace the failed experiment of the returned and now gone Dudleys. I have always liked Bubba and D-Von, but they have gone past their best, it was a shame to see them used just to push newer, lesser teams.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Sep 2016 20:14:53
The Usos have always been heel in my eyes they are always cheating in some way or another mostly by both being in the ring together for far too long leaving tag matches 2 on 1 a lot.
Then again I can't stand the usos lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Sep 2016 20:49:46
Face teams are allowed to cheat so long as they do it with a smile. Swapping USOs in the ring was fine so long as it foiled the heels and showed them for the lovable scamps they were.
Now, however, it will prove what utter rotters they are. The bastards.
I think they will make a top heel team.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Sep 2016 22:49:34
TBF Coys I think that's why I dislike The USOs for me face just didn't seem to be them, hopefully their heel turn will change my opinion of them as others have said here the usos are indeed a natural tag team not a manufactured one so this heel turn could be a blessing for the usos.

Agree1 Disagree0

09 Sep 2016 11:47:03
I agree with Bessex as well. The Uso's are a proper tag team and deserve credit for helping to spark a revival. in tag wrestling. The USO's and the New Day have done a lot of hard work to reinvigorate the tag division.

Having said that, it was definitely time to turn them heel and I think it will be good for them in the long run. I think their relationship with Roman was as much to do with it as anything else. This got me thinking about a Shield reunion in a few years time. Would they be able to do it? What would the crowd reaction be? I think Roman is that tainted now that the Shield would get booed. Ambrose and Rollins are both over but people booed the Reigns even with Rock next to him. I don't see Ambrose or Rollins being over enough to stop Reigns getting booed out the building.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Sep 2016 16:27:19
I hope they see it as a chance to climb to the top of the card.

Big Cas and Enzo, The New Day, American Alpha, The Club, some of the hottest acts in WWE are tag teams right now.

Where can they fit in?

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Sep 2016 20:08:34
Cas and Enzo, New Day, American Alpha are as face as it is possible to be. The Club have great potential to be a great heel team if used properly and so do the USOs. One heel team for each show.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Sep 2016 16:47:43
I don't like how WWE are treating Gallows and Anderson, hopefully they'll stop this silly comic gimmick and allow Gallows and Anderson to be the monster heels that they are capable of being.
Cas and Enzo are indeed a great tag team as are American Alpha I think the New day gimmick is getting a bit stale now.
Pity that they broke up the Prime time players as I thought they were a decent tag team too.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Sep 2016 08:19:27
Is it just me or does carmella make you cringe when she's on the mic. Maybe because I'm bored of enzo and she's a poor copy

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Sep 2016 10:30:21
I like Carmella, but I can't help but hold women to a different standard to men.

I probably just like her because she looks great in her gear.

Alexa Bliss is probably my favourite woman, its simply because she is the best looking (in my opinion)

Banks is a great blend of being hot and putting on great matches.

Deep down I still pine to see the womens title defended in a chocolate pudding evening gown match.

Agree1 Disagree0

07 Sep 2016 13:01:32
Don't notice the mic when she appears ;)

Agree1 Disagree0

09 Sep 2016 11:51:35
I was laughing when Sasha said "No more Bra and Panties matches" I think there's place for both. Sasha, Charlotte, Becky, Nicky and Naomi are all good in the ring and should be treated as legit athletes. But Eva Marie? I'm afraid it's bra and Panties matches or get off my screen! Lol

I agree about Alexa Bliss as well, absolutely delicious!

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Sep 2016 16:29:16
They are doing a good job of resetting peoples tolerance, if they had a evening gown match now it would be genuinely humiliating for the loser, a few years back the winner would actually celebrate by stripping as well.

Am I the only one who likes Baron Corbin? His lone wolf persona could really be built on. He has the look and, at least I think, the talent to be a major player.
Most people I speak to really slag him off, but I just don't see why.

Agree1 Disagree0

06 Sep 2016 21:25:16
If used as a bad*ss he could be a top top heel great look decent in the ring but it would need to be as a totaly vicious heel and take no prisoners but I actually like him no doubt about it.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Sep 2016 21:56:11
I think he's awesome. If he can stay healthy, I'm starting to think he could end up being a World champ. He's only been wrestling for 4 years, and has already had some matches that have caught my eye. I thought his match with Aries in NXT was really good. The lack of a good story, killed his feud with Ziggler but I thought the matches were good. I also really enjoyed his match with Ambrose last week. The fact that it was their first match with each other, they seemed to mesh really well. I would definitely love to see a big time feud between them down the line.

He definitely seems to get "it" in terms of his character. In and out of the ring, he's been pretty solid with it. It should be very interesting to see his development on Smackdown with some of the personalities/ characters they have and them being a more storyline driven show.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Sep 2016 22:02:37
I'm a huge corbin fan .
Since his days in nxthe, he's got a great look and if used as abad ass (kinda hiw he's been with calisto)
He could be huge.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Sep 2016 10:22:50
I like Corbin, that proving ground show kind of showed he is a miserable git in real life as well, which is why I feel his character is fits him so well.

He just needs to stay winning in the midcard for a while.

Somewhere in the future I see him getting a shot at the main event.

The important thing is to keep him winning, and not put someone over at his expense.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Sep 2016 11:54:05
I like Corbin, I think he plays his gimmick well. Like others have said he seems like he's just being himself. I like some of his moves as well. Deep 6 always look really good and the End of Days is a good finisher. I think he could have a bright future.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Sep 2016 16:58:32
What are they doing to gallows and Anderson if you haven't seen emraw yet I won't spoil it but they are not a comedy act stick them to being powerful men not clowns please.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Sep 2016 20:27:45
Apart from a big wad of cash, it's very hard to think why Gallows and Anderson would have come back for this treatment. I know the New Day's thing is a comedy face team, but why on earth do G and A have to be cast as comedy heels?
They were introduced as monsters who have wiped out the competition all over the world but have been used as jesters to promote the New Day, after being used to promote Styles/ Cena.
A complete about turn is required. Let them cut loose and build up the reputation they deserve (if it's not too late already) or it is only a matter of time before they go. They must have some pride they want to maintain. Bullet Club? Ballet Club more like it.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Sep 2016 21:27:25
I'm actually lost for words on why they are being used the way they are. I assumed it would be styles being used as a joke but he is being made out to be a main player. And rightly so. The g and a segment on raw was the worst iv seen all year possibly.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Sep 2016 22:04:07
To be fair the ringpostitis bit was great but I feel since that went over well the wwe are pushing it a too far now.

07 Sep 2016 10:24:38
I don't mind it, they almost remind me of Hall and Nash, taking the mic with skits and interviews, then being brutal when its business time.

I like that they look strong, even though they are 3 on 2 down every week.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Sep 2016 13:06:47
I don't normally disagree with you Bessex, but the last thing they do look like now is strong.
Like I said earlier, let them cut loose, but without the skits. They would be at their best as a team of hard, silent destroyers who take no crap, or if they have to have a recognisable image, make them something like the APA.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Sep 2016 09:32:16
Its a game of opinions, and I would say the APA's funny skits were every bit as important as their matches. They are another good example of guys that were funny outside of matches then aggressive when the rang.

Could they have been as good without messing around in their fake office?

DAMN!

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Sep 2016 11:33:20
The apa where actually funny though and weren't goofy bit can see where you are coming from.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Sep 2016 16:31:45
They had two choices, either rip off the Bullet Club and put them all together as a faction, or try and let them good on their own.

They bottled forming "The Club" and firing it to the top.

So for the second year running a British name has won PWG's Battle Of Los Angeles. Based on the talent involved in that tournament it shows how well British wrestling is doing again. Well done to Marty Scurll who has also really improved over the last few years. Always good to see Regal was there too scouting as normal. Maybe Marty maybe looked at? Also there was Cedric Alexander, Tommasso Ciampa and Tommy End who all said goodbye to the crowd after the cameras went off. Final confirmation if anyone needed it that they are all WWE bound.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Sep 2016 15:14:45
they have all been announced already that they are wwe bound! They are all just finishing commitments.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Sep 2016 16:12:05
It'll be interesting to see if WWE tries to scoop up Scurll as well. ROH is supposedly going after him pretty hard.

Right now the cruiserweight division will feature Ciampa, Gargano, Kendrick, Swann, Alexander, Dar, Gallagher, Metalik, Tozawa, and Perkins.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Sep 2016 20:31:34
It is such a shame the WWE don't seem to like Sabre's style. He would be something different and I'm sure the fans would appreciate his skill.
Having said that, it would also be a shame if WWE hoovered up all the talent at the expense of the other promotions.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Sep 2016 20:49:14
I think ZSJ has rejected the WWE for the time being. I personally think he needs to bulk up just a touch before going there.

Great wrestler one of the best bit his look would not suit wwe. I'm glad he's staying away. Vince would destroy him. Proberly book him as nia jaxs d*ldo.

Agree1 Disagree0

06 Sep 2016 22:06:51
As far as I'm aware
Zsj and ricochet ( I thinks its him or may be someone else) have turned wwe down as they have dates they have to fulfil much like nakamura and gallows m Anderson did.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Sep 2016 22:49:44
Both Ricochet and ZSJ will probably get signed next year.

Ricochet can't sign with WWE until next year because on his contract with Lucha Underground. If they do the CWC again next year, I'd imagine that's when/ how WWE will bring him in. ZSJ does have prior commitments, and a few things on the bucket list. While I'm sure they would like to see him at least bulk up closer to Kofi Kingston skinny. I don't think his size is as big a deal as people are making it out to be. Especially over the last year and a half or so, their biggest concern is whether the person can stay healthy (and clean) .

I actually hope ZSJ stays exactly the same. The way I've seen a lot of people (from marks to smarks) react to him, I think he could be one of the greatest true heels WWE has ever seen.

I love JZJ, but deep down he looks kinda stupid when competing with more defined cruiserweights.

I know talent should shine through, but I'd like to see him pack on 30lbs of muscles and come back.

I wonder if now they have gone back to 2 separate rosters and they are brining in more talent to build the rosters up whether we will get a 40 man rumble again. Stick a few legends and a couple NXT guys in there and I think it would work quite well.

Agree0 Disagree0

I hope not. There's just no need for 40 people to enter. The RR where Del Rio won wasn't any better than a normal 30 man rumble. I'll be happy if they do a decent RR match next year. This year was better than the last 2 but it was still pretty poor.

Agree0 Disagree0

I just really enjoy the format of the rumble and when it gets to number 30 I'm a little but sad that its come to an end for another 12 months lol.

They should use the RR to establish someone as a TOP star. They've wasted the opportunity the last 6 years by picking the wrong winners:

Del Rio
Sheamus
Cena
Batista
Roman Reigns
HHH

They need to use it to make a star, winning the RR should be a huge deal. The winner should be one of: Balor, AJ Styles, Owens, Ambrose, Rollins, Wyatt

I'd like Balor to return at the RR and win it, but I'd be happy with any of those winning it. I know Ambrose and Owens as champions won't be in the Battle Royal, but a lot can change between now and January.

If they were to do a bigger Rumble match in years that there was a special anniversary, I think that would be okay.

The two things I want to see happen with the Rumble are 1. The winner gets to choose which title they want to go after, like it was in the first split. 2. If NXT is going to be doing a special the night before RR like they've been doing with WM, SS, and now SvS. At that TakeOver, I'd like to see a match each year where the winner (s) get a spot in the Rumble.

Which way will RAW go with Owens?
Will Jericho become the first line of defence on his 'friend' or will jealousy rear it's ugly head?
Will HHH be a father figure to Owens and let KO's ego run wild? (I really hope so.)
Who will have first dibs on HHH? He screwed both Reigns & Rollins. My money is on Rollins.
Will Rollins turn face now he has been cut adrift by HHH or will he stay as Steph's blue eyed boy?
An opportunity for some great story lines that can run all the way to Mania.

Agree0 Disagree0

Im pretty sure it will be Rollins. They are building a future Triple H Vs rollins match but I think it would be great if they continue the slow build and have the one on one match at mania.

The original plans was for Balor to defend against Owens at Clash of champions and then against Owens and Jericho at hell in a cell. I wonder if they will keep close to that.

Agree0 Disagree0

I'd love to see Kevin Owens hold on to it until at least the Rumble.

They could do far worse than to have KO be the guy to pin Brock Lesnar, he has years in him and they seem so hot on him, and he really gets it, I think he'd be better at using that rub than most.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Sep 2016 15:09:07
Im with you Bessex. Owens is already very over even as a heel and beating Lesnar would only cement that. I would like to see him get a decent reign. i'd love to see him keep it until Mania and Finn come back and win the Rumble.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Sep 2016 15:53:33
I'd be more than happy with KO having a long run until RR or WM and I think he's the right choice to be the one to beat Lesnar. I can't think of anyone else on RAW who could do it and pull it off. Maybe Wyatt on Smackdown but they'd have to build him up for a while now. Owens is the best option.

Agree0 Disagree0

There will be an NXT special in Toronto the night before Survivor Series (also in Toronto) . It hasn't been specifically stated but it appears this will be the next special.

Good times.

I watched the end of RAW again this morning and i'm convinced that Owens did not know he was going to win that match until Triple H dragged him back into the ring. He looked more shocked than anyone and I think it was such a genuine reaction. I think they must have been told the ending but with Seth winning to keep it all a secret.

Agree0 Disagree2

It's called the art of selling.
Of course he knew as he's the huge part going forward. But because he sells so well, it makes him the best about at the moment.

WWE have kept things secret before. For example even the ref didn't know that Lesnar was going to beat taker at Wrestlemania. Since I wrote this is have actually seen rumours that say the same thing.

If it was all planned and everyone knew what was going to happen what did Triple H say in Owens ear as he picked him up and threw him in the ring. If it was all planned out nothing would need to be said.

I guess we will never know but it wouldn't surprise me if it was kept secret from everyone until it happened to reduce the chance of any leaks.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Sep 2016 14:49:42
they are constantly talking to one another but there's no way that KO didn't know.

Agree0 Disagree0

Wwe have done an excellent job of 'selling' things properly recently. I can think of at least three occasions in the last 2 weeks where I wasn't 100% sure if they were still sticking to the script. The ending of Orton v Lesnar seemed real, as if Lesnar had just lost it. The Talking Smack interview with Miz and Daniel Bryan was absolutely brilliant, they seem like they legit hate each other. And the end of Raw seemed like they'd gone of script as well. Owens looked so shocked it seemed real and even Foley and Stephanie's reactions seemed legit. Good work WWE, keep it up.

Agree0 Disagree0

I would say it's the actual achievement that's why his reaction is priceless. from wrestling all over the world in small venue's to becoming what every wrestler must dream of doing being wwe heavyweight champion.

You mean wwe universal champion 😅.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Sep 2016 10:19:39
That's the name now but you know what I mean it's the top of the mountain kind of thing to be the top champion in the wwe.

Agree0 Disagree0

Did anyone else notice Steph say that raw crowned the first ever wwe universal last night.

Agree1 Disagree0

30 Aug 2016 23:18:19
I think they meant to say that it was the first Universal Championship match on RAW, but instead of correcting themselves they just ran with it.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Aug 2016 20:31:52
I wonder if Sami will end up on Smackdown now. With all the guys coming in for the cruiserweight division, you'd think there would be at least a few guys from RAW being moved to the blue brand. They've already announced 7 names for the division (Cedric Alexander, Ciampa, Noam Dar, Gargano, Brian Kendrick, TJ Perkins, Rich Swann) and there could be at least several more.

It also seems like a sure thing that ADR is going to be leaving WWE again. He was removed from the events he was advertised for after his suspension is up.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Aug 2016 21:18:25
They are building Zayn up as the new underdog, the never give up etc. The sort of wrestler that makes Michael Cole go on and on about.
This would fit on either show, but with a heel champion now on RAW
(I really hope they give him a run as champ), he probably fits more in RAW.
Read an interesting appraisal of KO about why he is so popular. His look makes him a heel version of the American Dream, Dusty Rhodes, someone who the fans can identify with, unlike most of the beefed up wrestlers.
Whether this is true or not, there was genuine emotion on his face when he won the title which can only endear him more with the fans.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Aug 2016 22:03:05
I see sami going after owens to finally end thier feud, I think at like royal rumble or something itll be zayn vs owens for the title, sami wins, owens gets up and they shake hands as a show of respect, can also see brock in universal title mix very soon, as he never lost his wh title roman did, then never got a rematch.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Aug 2016 23:44:25
Right now, the best show for him is probably the one that he would get a secondary title run on. I just wonder if he'll be one of the names moved because he hasn't done that much on RAW since the split. Plus with the cruiserweights coming in, it could be even harder for him to get screen time.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2016 12:57:55
I was just saying the same thing last night to one of my mates. raw took 2/ 3 of the talent and now they are adding another 10 - 15 names for the cruiserweight division. A few names from Raw would be better used over on SD so i'm hoping there is a little bit of change soon. Maybe a trade or at Survivor series there could be a RAW Vs Smackdown Match where the winner gets 2 draft steals.
