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.

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. "

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".

ill be watching that. let's face it, if it wasn't for vince we wouldn't be on this page, we wouldn't be watching wrestling weekly. WCW and NWA would've failed regardless.

Whilst we sometimes moan about vince, he has a great mind for the business.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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?

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!

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

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.

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.

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".

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Apr 2017 11:40:30
With Ambrose on raw now maybe Owens will be off to smackdown can't see raw having all the belts there wasn't any good shake ups to raw was all mid carders imo the miz was good but he can drop the whole cena stuff as he's not on the same brand who do people see going to smackdown from raw for me it Will be Owens zayn new day Anderson and gallows if that's the case then smackdown come put this looking stronger.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Apr 2017 15:41:30
Payback could end up being a quasi dual brand ppv to tie up loose ends. So they could still keep KO on RAW. Moving Jericho to SD instead and have him win the U. S. title back, or having Corbin get and win an IC title match at Payback.

With Kofi being injured, I could see them moving E&BC and/ or Shesaro instead. G&A are others that seem likely but maybe RAW will be faction warfare with Shield vs rEvolution (KO, Joe,? ) vs Wyatts (Bray, Braun, Bo) vs Balor Club.

At this point, I just want some explanation, by the end of Talking Smack, as to how the "deals and trades" happened.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Apr 2017 17:37:08
Lesnar to smackdown will happen I reckon and bray will win the title off Orton and take it to Raw.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Apr 2017 21:04:03
Supposedly Vince wants to do this twice a year. 1 after Mania and 1 after SummerSlam.

Otunga and Saxton were swapped after RAW went off the air. It also appears that there could still be other SD moves to RAW, including wrestlers.

I see Ranallo is not expected to complete his WWE contract on Smackdown.
I know he has his problems, but there are murmurs that JBL may have had something to do with aggravating them.
There is an increasing amount of coverage of Layfield's bullying antics both as a wrestler and beyond and that this is not only known by the powers that be, but was actively encouraged.
How this sits with the high profile anti-bullying campaign run by WWE I have no idea.
It's a shame. I quite liked Ranallo.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Apr 2017 15:35:38
It sucks to hear about Mauro. Hopefully they at least get JBL off of tv. I think it was Meltzer that said, "Any other company, he'd be gone. "

I'd like to see them have JR and Lawler do Smackdown. JR signed a deal to do certain events, but said he'd be willing to do as many as they wanted. Give them both a 2 year farewell tour that would end at WM 35.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Apr 2017 10:38:38
JBL just can't be as bad as people suggest or he would be gone.

I think he is just big and Texan.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Apr 2017 21:13:56
I don't know Besssex, too many rumoours going on for too long.
I think he is just big, Texan and a git.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Apr 2017 11:47:02
Yeah there's too many rumours from too many respected resources for this to be all BS. JBL is very likely a backstage bully and probably played a part in Ranallo leaving.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Apr 2017 19:20:11
So who all does everyone think is going to get moved next week? According to Meltzer, Styles is still likely going to RAW and Reigns isn't moving. There does appear to be a big name moving from RAW though. New Day, Charlotte, and Alexa are rumored to be switching as well, with Almas and Samson expected to get called up.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Apr 2017 19:37:38
With aj shaking Shane's hand a thought he could be for the off.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Apr 2017 20:27:34
I can see The New Day moving. The Hardys can be the face team on RAW and the tag teams on Smackdown really need a boost.
With Cena out for a while and Style probably going to RAW, I wouldn't be surprised to see Rollins on Smackdown.
Ambrose and Zayn need a boost and the change would do them good too.
I don't think there will be a full draft though.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Apr 2017 00:20:24
I think it'd be a poor choice to have AJ swith to RAW. There's plenty of booking options for him on SD with Orton imminently and Nakamura further down the line. I'd like to see Zayn go to SD and that'd be another option for Styles, they guys would have terrific matches and pitting Zayn with AJ instantly elevates him from where he's been on Raw. Plus Raw is top heavy on main event talent, Reigns, Lesnar, Balor, Rollins, Owens with Joe and Strowman on the parifery. Can't see any of they guys switching with Rollins and it looks like Balor involved with HHH, Joe and Owens. Strowman stepping up to Lesnar and Reigns surely set to challenge Lesnar soon. I'd like to see Anderson and Gallows go to SD and form the club with AJ (would do wonders for Anderson and Gallows) . Split Cesaro and Sheamus and have Cesaro go to SD as well as Zayn and New Day. I'd have Ambrose, Crews, Ziggler and Carmella go to Raw.

Agree1 Disagree0

07 Apr 2017 07:48:16
But Ambrose has the belt.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Apr 2017 10:47:02
I wonder if they'll split any teams?

I always expected Big E to be the break out of the New Day.

Bringing Ambrose back to his Shield mates would be nice.

Perhaps the Big Show to Smackdown?

I think its fair to say Raw needs Stars, Smackdown needs great matches, so guys like Cesaro and Zayne could do more on Smackdown.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Apr 2017 19:36:26
Think Ambrose will go to raw as i've heard rumours about shield v evolution 2.0.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Apr 2017 19:40:47
It was announced that the ShakeUp will be apart of both shows. I'd assume that means they'll be doing some version of the draft lottery, where about 10-12 picks are made. Then sense wwe.com mentioned trades, I could see that being a period later in the week where they move some of the lower card talent.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Apr 2017 11:18:07
There's already been a bit of a shake up with Hardy's, Revival and Nakamura joining the main rosters (and Finn returning) I can see it being mainly lower careers who overrate with the odd big name moving:

RAW - AJ, Asuka (eventually)
Smackdown - Charlotte, New Day, Zayn, Rollins

Smackdown needs a bit if a shot in the arm and needs some one who is a big player and outstanding in the ring to replace AJ. I'd send Seth and Sam I Zayn over to Smackdown then turn Ambrose Heel.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Apr 2017 09:14:24
I really hope that AJ isn't moved to Raw, he'll just be fed to Roman.
Have a feeling Cena will move to Raw in hopes it will get the fans on side with Reigns

Regardless if he moves or not though I can see the closing match at WM34 being Reigns vs Cena.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Apr 2017 15:03:35
Apparently they are moving for Reigns/ Lesnar for Mania 34.
It is getting to the stage where I am half wishing for another wellness violation from Reigns as that is the only way I can see his push being stopped.
Mcintyre must be having a little grin since he was 'thing' was being Vince's Chosen One. I think we all know who that actually is.
It is a shame as Reigns isn't a bad wrestler. He is just not an exceptional one.

Simon Gotch of The Vaudvillians has been released from his contract.

06 Apr 2017 02:36:23
Perhaps not wwe related as such, but Aaron Reks (Damien Sandow) has also left Impact Wrestling. perhaps a return to nxt soon? Still feel like it was a mistake to let him go from wwe.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Apr 2017 10:30:06
Gotch just never made a step up, but with the brand split, 205, and opening new UK, Asia, and African territories and NXT you'd think you have to work hard to get released unless you want out.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Apr 2017 02:14:15
Ridiculous wrestlmania very obvious raw as in returns or debuts. And if that's how the debut one of the top wrestler's on the planet on smack down I'm disgusted. A expected more from smack down and the main events where a pre show disgrace and a main show outrage.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Apr 2017 05:32:39
Right now I'll give Mania week a C+. The shake up will determine the final grade though.

I enjoyed the HoF. Ambrose interviews on the red carpet, are becoming a yearly highlight. Cornette's speech was another big highlight for me. TakeOver was solid. Props to the tag match. Mania was okay, I guess. I had extremely low expectations going in, so I'm just happy it wasn't a complete dumpster fire like last year. Just the last hour and a half or so, this time. Plus Broken Taker and Oldberg for the Broken Hardys and Angle, is pretty good trade off. RAW and SD were fine for what they were.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Apr 2017 09:50:57
I enjoyed it all, though 7 1/ 2 hours of Mania was draining.

Happy with how it all went.

In his defence there are, that's why he is a billionaire, Wrestlemania is a huge success every year, and the vocal few on the internet don't get much traction.

Agree0 Disagree2

06 Apr 2017 11:12:28
Like the old Simpson episode with mr burns selling his house to Bret hart. when he realises he has lost all his money, it's time you or Vince checked his stock tickler, he ain't a billionaire no more, and eventually you and the rest will get bored watching the bland, sterilised , unimaginative stuff they are producing. Owens v stone cold, Michaels v Rollins, undertaker v Wyatt, rock v reigns, Ambrose v hhh, angle v Nakamura , none of the new guys would even get on the pre show, with one exception aj styles and they left him working with Shane, Jesus wept .

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Apr 2017 10:50:20
As HHH says if you can get past the idea that they might not do what you want and just watch it unfold you'll probably enjoy it.

I don't think anybody can say it was a bad Mania, perhaps only that if it was being customised for them, they would have changed some stuff.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Apr 2017 10:51:32
As it turned out I thought Shane and AJ put on a decent opener, despite the fact I'd rather seen AJ go one on one with a dozen others first.

Agree1 Disagree1

07 Apr 2017 19:35:58
Its not a question of doing what everyone wants, they do what everyone expects, every WrestleMania match was called months ago on this page and every winner as well, it's all very well having good matches but without surprise it's boring , do you think anyone would watch football if every match could be predicted before hand? And like I said before the wwe is in a better position because it can create it's own surprises.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Apr 2017 15:05:39

News and Notes.
*Drew Galloway signed a deal with WWE where he'll go by his previous name and be in NXT.
*Jim Ross signed a 2 year deal with WWE that will see him return for at least a set amount of appearances.
*WWE.com stated that the roster shake up will be each show's GMs getting together and working out trades and deals with each other.

Probably something that would of sounded like a waterhead trying to imitate Dr. Seuss.

I would like to see fans start to chant for people on the active roster they like and want to see, instead of keeping the focus on the person they don't like. It's like the 'Lets go Cena, Cena sucks" chants. It does nothing for anyone but Cena. Just like constantly booing Reigns has done nothing for anyone else. Or at least find away to do something positive if you have to be negative.
"We don't like you. We don't want you. (insert name) is better in every way. "

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Apr 2017 20:34:33
What they might have done by accident is turn him heel.
Loved that crowd, always something special about the first post Mania show.
At long last we are getting a decent tag division on RAW. Really hope they don't mess it up in the trade.

Mania confused me quite a bit.
Mojo Rawley? Cannot stand the bloke, but apart from that, why?
Strowman. Straight from unbeatable to mid-card. It is obvious now that he was only used to boost Reigns.
What on Earth has happened to Ambrose? From a major player to pre-show.
How much longer can they make a show? The crowd were cheered out by the time the poorly sold Wyatt/ Orton match started.
Having said that, the cruisers nailed it. Rollins/ HHH was a good match. Nice to see the Hardyz. Jericho/ Owens was ok. AJ proved he can carry anyone.
Very hard to judge how good or bad a show it was. No outstanding 4.5 or 5 star match.
I have seen worse Manias, but I have seen a lot better ones.
Looking forward to RAW tonight to see what will be building for Summerslam.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Apr 2017 20:12:12
The stuff with Mojo was to pander to NFL fans. Sadly we'll probably never get rid of stupid stuff like that.

They really need to turn Ambrose heel. In kayfabe that dude should be one snide coment or dirty look away from going on a rampage.

Wyatt has become Nega-Undertaker. 0-3 at Mania. Plus an 0-5 combined record for Harper, Rowan, and Strowman.

What a load of rubbish that was, some of the wrestling was decent but other than that it was so predictable, every match was predicted almost to a tee further down the page . Where were the surprises, where were the innovators, no showstoppers' like Michaels or flair, no crowd pleasers like stone cold or the rock .

Bring back cornett or bishoff or even god help us Russo, or find there equivalent in the modern world of wrestling or it's finished for ever, it can't go on being so bland and predictable.

No one would watch football or any other sport or for that matter any soap opera or tv programme if you knew exactly what was going to happen every time you tuned in, WrestleMania should leave you salivating about the prospect of watching raw tonight , it never even came close .

WWE is in the unique position of being able to create it's own surprises and controversy but is too lazy and scared to do it, a duck it I'm away on to youtube to watch some NWA stuff from the early 80s or wcw from the late 80s early 90s or some wwf attitude era stuff.

I will be the one crying in the corner because you see I know they could make it that good again, but they just don't want to 😢.

03 Apr 2017 09:23:35
My take on Wrestlemainia

Andre - didn't watch, don't care either

Cruiserweight - I missed as I was out, gutted, AA is one of my faves

Shane vs AJ - missed some of it but the spots were enjoyable and Shane's shooting star was class, as much as people whinge he'll always give an extra 10 % to make the match enjoyable

HHH vs Seth - again missed some of it but the rest wasn't bad at all, HHH does bore me but the match was enjoyable

Tag team - HARDYS! quality moment and for them to win it first night was amazing. Great match

Cena Nikki + mizaryse - didn't catch any of it

Wyatt Vs Orton - they always seem to rob wyatt don't they. What on earth was with the snakes too?!? Hoping for Orton to lose the title soon, haven't enjoyed his character since legacy

Lesnar vs Goldberg - was good, I was hoping for more spots and maybe Lesnar crushing Goldberg through announce table but meh. I enjoyed it

Reigns vs taker was just embarrassing. Why give Takers last match to roman? Reigns doesn't have good matches, he gets carried by a better wrestler. If taker was facing Rollins/ Styles/ Balor the match would be better. I feel taker needs more agile people to make the match enjoyable. But quite frankly it was embarrassing and the whole piledriver botch was ugh.

The ending of the match was trash too, I was left in the same state as royal rumble. with a disbelieving smile on my face.

WWE need to pull there act together, and where was Joe?

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Apr 2017 10:22:49
Agree with everything you said also ko jericho was a good match.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Apr 2017 11:36:51
Reigns doesn't have good matches?

Reigns doesn't have bad matches! I understand it's cool to dislike him and I can see why people do have this hate but he is talented he carried taker to a brawl which is all at his age taker is good for. Taker botched spots, reigns facial work as he was getting closer and closer to the end was quality work. It told a story the legend on his way out and the man who knew he was going to end it. Perfect.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Apr 2017 06:56:22
Wrestle mania for me was so so good matches where Shane vs aj . hhh vs rollins and neville vs aa. The wyatt orton match was absolutely sickening pathetic I can't stand the woman's wrestling as I'm not interested in it so that always gets a thumbs down the battle royal was the worse match up is aswell as being binned after that.
