It looks like HHH is going to be on RAW tonight. Lesnar is also scheduled to appear. Tomorrow on SD, There will be a special edition of the King's Court w/ Jerry Lawler in his home town of Memphis.

With Goldberg set to work the RAW ppv that's expected to be Fastlane, Lesnar scheduled for almost every RAW from now until Mania, and HHH making an earlier than expected appearance. I hope they do HHH vs Rollins and Goldberg vs Lesnar at Fastlane and do something else at Mania.

I'm a little confused. Does anyone know the point of the UK Title. Will it be a normal title in the WWE? is it just a trophy for Tyler to keep? Will it be defended in WWE approved matches across the UK?

I think its safe to say a few of those guys will surely get signed up. Pete Dunne is a top talent at the age of 23 and Bate at 19 just shows the future is very bright.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jan 2017 15:14:19
The goal is for them to have their own show like the CWs have with 205 live. They also want to do a ppv down the line as well. There are plans to do a similar tournament and possible show, somewhere in the Latin-American and Asian markets.

Can anyone tell me whgwhgats happened to Dolf Zigler haven't had access to the wrestling for a while and whwen I was watching he seemed to be a top wrestler thanks in advance

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jan 2017 14:31:59
He ended up losing his feud with Miz. Moved on to Baron Corbin and lost that one too. Now just starting his heel turn against Kalisto, who the WWE are trying to sell as the new Mysterio but isn't. I suspect he will lose this one as well.
I like Dolph and it always looks like he is finally going to win the big one, then it is snatched away. It seems his career just has been on hold for years with an occasional bright spot thrown in.
I thought he should have lost his career v title match with Miz and then tried his luck elsewhere.
I know he has opened his mouth too much for Vince's and HHH's liking, but he has been a loyal wrestler and deserves a little better than being the ultimate nearly man.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jan 2017 14:39:52
He's listened to trump, turned mental and started attacking Mexican midgets with chairs over on smackdown :)

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Jan 2017 18:57:33
He attacked Crews as well, so my guess is it all becomes a feud between temporary factions to get people on tv. Especially since the top feuds are going to be taking up more time, the closer we get to Mania.

They'll want to have Kane around at least enough to reprise his role in the Andre Battle Royal. A tag team or two, could probably stand to be put in a situation where they're not just jobbing to AA and/ or the Wyatts. After Talking Smack last week, it appears that they'll want to do something with Mojo as well.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jan 2017 21:55:22
Mr Lee, lol. He's gone full blown Trump. I bet he gets repackaged as "The Builder" and starts work on constructing a wall.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jan 2017 01:24:01
Getting a Trump inspired gimmick would probably lead to a top spot. So Ziggler wouldn't get that. He'd get a gimmick inspired by one of the 'Crab People' in Trump's cabinet.

The promotion 5 Star Wrestling is getting a 2 hour live show on UK TV, on Spike (Freeview 31/Sky 160/Virgin 154). It's on January 28th 8-10pm. Rey Mysterio v John Morrison is the main event.

WON "reported" that there have been major changes to Mania, with Undertaker vs Cena not happening and Undertaker vs Strowman being off the table as well. They went on to say it looks like Taker will face someone on RAW but also said Vince didn't want Taker in a title match. According to them, HHH vs Rollins and Goldberg vs Lesnar are still locks and KO vs Jericho is likely.

There is also a rumor that Joe will be pushed heavily after he debuts, which is expected at or right after the Rumble.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Jan 2017 11:20:34
What is WON? is it not reliable?

13 Jan 2017 15:18:30
Wrestling Observer Newsletter. It's the main avenue that Meltzer and friends release news and rumors.

I put 'reported' in quotes because that's how it was being presented, but it can't be confirmed so it's a rumor. I'm also extremely skeptical of anything that mentions plans for world titles in WWE.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Jan 2017 17:32:34
It's Wrestling Observer Newsletter. It's the main avenue of rumors and news from Meltzer and friends. I put quotes around reported, because it was presented as a report, but it's not something that can be verified. So it's a rumor.

It makes the Rumble and possibly the Elimination Chamber, even more interesting if it's true.

12 Jan 2017 20:04:41
Just read Ryback's latest ramble and as usual it is a mix of delusional rubbish, a Big Guy ego trip and the occasional jewel of information that makes you go 'What?'.
It is a general rant against Cena who he describes as 'poison to the wrestling industry' but he then goes on to mention how Cena buried Alex Riley's career in a manner that he says will shock everyone.
Riley has since confirmed that there was an incident between himself and Cena that he feels uncomfortable talking about.
I'm intrigued. We all know Cena has ruined a lot of wrestler's careers, but what can be so bad in the way he did Riley's?

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Jan 2017 20:20:14
Saw it earlier mate. Sounds like typical cena. I'm interested in finding out tho

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Jan 2017 21:18:59
Cena supposedly made Riley look bad in front of everyone in the lockeroom. To me it sounds like a little kid whining to their parents, that someone called them a doo-doo head. There are a lot of other things that should be higher than Cena on the list of reasons they failed. Most of them involve themselves.

Agree1 Disagree0

13 Jan 2017 09:26:17
I remember reading about this a long time ago. I think its had something to do with Riley using a Death Valley Driver as his finisher and Cena wasn't happy as that is his finisher too. It all sort of escalated from there. I think it was at the time that Riley was starting to get a push on the main show against the Miz.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Jan 2017 11:25:18
Its wrestling folklore that when Cena was feuding with Miz, and AR was acting as a Miz's bodyguard/ understudy that Cena decided he didn't want to work with AR, resulting in a slip down the card to obscurity.

Poor old Cena has to do what's best for him, and every time he decides not to do something he gets accused of ending someone.

Not getting to work with John Cena doesn't end your career, and if you want to work with him, you kind of have to do it his way. He is on top that's how it is.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Jan 2017 20:35:08
I do get what you are saying Bessex, but Cena has, or I hope had, far too much influence. He ended up being the only show in town. While Cena does have a lot to do with the stalling of careers, the real fault lies with the WWE who let him get away with it.

24 years ago today, the first episode of RAW premiered. Undertaker won in the main event over Damien Demento.

Current Champs age when it debuted.
Bliss - 1.
Swann - almost 2.
Jordan - 4, Gable - 6.
Charlotte - 6.
Ambrose - 7.
Owens - 8.
Cesaro - 12, Sheamus - almost 15.
Styles - 15.
Jericho - 22.

RAW can suck so hard at times: The Foley segments are embarrassing, the Steph segments suck and seem totally needless. I felt sorry for Rusev being associated with that HBK and Enzo/ Cass segment last night.

Agree1 Disagree1

11 Jan 2017 19:32:03
I really find it hard to accept that some of the absolute garbage on RAW is allowed. Surely the writers must know it is rubbish and surely there must be someone who has passed it to be part of the show.
This person cannot have a sense of humour but thinks he has. Vince, I'm talking to you.
GET SOME PROPER WRITERS AND STOP INTERFERING.

So I've just gone through the roster counting up s that will have hoped they have done enough to get on the Wrestlemania card, and I count 67.

Ill grant you I've included the 15 odd from 205, NXT, and Sting and the Rock, but they could run a B Wrestlemania if they fancied it.

Just trying to put together a card, and I think we will get lots of multi performer matches on the preshow.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Jan 2017 11:37:07
That's not taking in to account that the final 2 hours will surly be

Shaq vs Big Show, Taker vs?, HHH vs Rollins, and Lesnar vs Goldberg.

2 World Title matches, 2 women's world title matches (they surly won't drop because they don't want to be seen as un PC)

I mean what's left?

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Jan 2017 13:49:13
I suppose the Wrestlemania B will be NXT the night before. They will have the likes of Nakamura, Hero, Roode, Young ect.

As far as Wrestlemania goes i'm hoping for a multi man Ladder match for the Cruiserweight Championship. The Andre Battle Royal gives places to about 20 names. Maybe they might extend Wrestlemania this year. Last year was 4 hours but why not stretch it to 5 Hours plus the Pre show. If there is enough quality matches I can't imagine anyone would moan at extra wrestling.

I would imagine Shaq Vs Big show and Lesnar Vs Goldberg won't go longer than 5 or 10 minutes each and i'm not sure how much Taker has in the Locker. I would rather have longer better matches than more rushed ones.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Jan 2017 16:18:09
I don't get Shaq v Big Show at all. Big Show hasn't even been in TV for ages. Why would anyone want to see this match? Surely even a huge basketball fan wouldn't be interested in watching this?

My guess for the card

Pre Show:
Andre The Giant Battle Royal
Sasha v Nia Jax
American Alpha v Wyatt Family v Usos v Breezango (SD Tag Titles)

Main Show:
Taker v Cena (WWE Title)
Goldberg v Lesnar
Rollins V HHH
Owens v Balor (Universal Title)
Ambrose v Miz v AJ v Wyatt (IC Title)
Roman Reigns v Samoa Joe (US Title)
Charlotte v Bayley (RAW Women's Title)
Becky Lynch v Nikki Bella (SD Women's Title)
Sheasaro v The Club v The New Day (Raw Tag titles)

Shaq v Big Show (if they insist putting a pointless and cringe worthy celeb match in there)

I can't see how they're going to fit AJ Styles on the card if Taker is facing Cena for the title. My preference would be for it to be AJ V Wyatt for the title and Cena v Taker as a normal match - but not sure if they'll do it! I've got a horrible feeling they might shoehorn AJ and Wyatt into the IC Title match (I hope I'm wrong) My card also leaves Strowman and Corbin off the card. Maybe they could win the ATGBR (but they're both already beyond that IMO, Maybe Corbin could be the first to retain. Strowman doesn't need it)

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Jan 2017 21:25:07
With Mania being almost 7 hours last year, including the 2 hour pre-show and with everything they could potentially do with matches. Making it 2 days would make a lot of sense. Day 1 could be a lighter tone with CWs, Tag, Women, a comedy match, Shaq vs Big Show, and the Andre Battle Royal. Day 2 could be the more serious and adult oriented show. World and secondary titles, blood feuds, and top notch wrestling showcase matches.

The Shaq vs Big Show thing has a lot to do with it being in Orlando and also because that's probably the only way Big Show was going to get a 1on1 retirement match at Mania.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Jan 2017 08:55:21
I can't see AJ not being involved in anything but a big match, my guess is omega comes in at the rumble, joins with gallows and they have a better version on "the club", they fued with AJ leading up to mania, and its then the club vs AJ with a returning ballor as they aren't happy with how gallows and Anderson aligned with omegam and maybe corbin joins those 2? him and AJ have a mutual enemy in cena at the moment so could use that to build them to join up against a bigger threat?

or even a shield vs club as another possibility?

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Jan 2017 15:31:54
I'm actually really interested in seeing Big Show, apparently he is leaner than when he made his debut in WCW, and Shaq is taller and heavier than him.

I know its just show business, but I'll take a break from the norm.

Agree0 Disagree1

11 Jan 2017 15:33:06
I also think they'll need a Moolah Memorial Battle Royal I they want to get all the women who perform week in week out on the card.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Jan 2017 18:31:18
I'm guessing the template will be something like this.
Pre-Show
Smackdown tag titles match.
Andre Battle Royal. (Lower card singles, tag, and CWs. + an NXT talent. )
Cruiserweight title 6 pack challenge.
Womens interpromotional tag match.

Main Show
IC or U. S. title ladder match.
Smackdown womens title match.
IC or U. S. title multi-man match.
Shaq vs Big Show
RAW tag titles match.
SD marquee personal feud match.
RAW marquee personal feud match.
Bad musical performance/ Half time break.
High profile match, possibly interpromotional.
RAW womens title match.
Something with the Rock.
Goldberg vs Lesnar.
WWE title match.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Jan 2017 11:17:21
So who's everyones pick for the rumble? What new and old faces will be involved? It's my favourite ppv's always has been, it's only one I pay for on sky like a late Christmas present for myself! Hoping for a wyatt win for a big push with Samoa Joe coming up and maybe a cheeky spot for Kurt angle just for a big pop

Agree1 Disagree0

08 Jan 2017 17:14:35
It's much harder to call this year IMO. It will probably be a RAW superstar, as Smackdown has the Elimination Chamber PPV. But there's always a chance it could be Smackdown guy that wins it. If Finn Balor is fit then I think he'll probably win it and go on to face Roman Reigns or Owens at WM. If Finn isn't fit then I think it's a tricky one to call right now. Maybe Undertaker? Then he could face either Cena or AJ (probably Cena) for the WWE title at WM. The main problems with that are it leaves RAW a bit up in the air going into WM, and Cena v Taker doesn't need to be for the title IMO. From a storyline standpoint it would make sense for Jericho to win and face KO at Mania. I'm a massive fan of both of those guys but I don't think it's a big enough match for a title match at Mania. They could even go full swerve and have Seth win the Rumble but instead of choosing a title match he chooses to face HHH at WM.

I think the final 5/ 6 will be Lesnar, Goldberg, Jericho, Rollins, Balor and Taker (if the final two are in it)

I'll stick my neck out and go for Balor to win. Most eliminations: Strowman but Corbin to run him close and maybe beat him if Strowman gets eliminated earlier than expected. I'm expecting Goldberg and Lesnar to eliminate each other (either at the same time or Lesnar comes back to cheat Goldberg) and Sami Zayn to eliminate Strowman.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Jan 2017 17:45:16
RAW
1. Strowman- vs Reigns. We all know Vince would love to.
2. Jericho- vs Owens. Obvious story and the best safe bet.
3. Balor- vs Owens or Dark Horse possibility vs Styles. All about whether he'll be ready for RR. A match vs Owens would be to get "his title" back. A match vs Styles to setup post Mania brand switching and as an FU to NJPW.
Dark Horse: Goldberg- vs Reigns. A match at SummerSlam would make more sense but it's something else Vince would love.

Smackdown
1. Undertaker- vs Cena. What people think they want now.
2. Ambrose- vs Cena and/ or Styles. 3way if they do something else with Taker, vs Styles to potentially double turn, vs Cena to pass the torch and/ or setup a heel turn for either.
3. Miz- vs Reigns. They're still trying to make Reigns a superhero and Miz has become the biggest heel/ villian.
Dark Horse: Wyatt- vs Cena. Orton said he enjoyed being a Wyatt. So they could keep them together through Mania. Orton could go for the IC title as an alternative to facing Wyatt.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Jan 2017 10:10:57
For me it will be Finn Balor. Balor returns as a surprise entrant and wins the rumble to go on and face Kevin Owens for the belt that Balor never lost.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Jan 2017 11:10:00
They couldn't top Taker vs Cena for the title at Mania with anything else.

I'd love to see Taker win the Rumble and Cena beat AJ to build to what would be the biggest main event in years.

Wont be surprised if there are at least 5 NXT guys in the rumble.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Jan 2017 12:47:38
Would love Roode to win, never going to happen.

Like the ideal of Roode joining KO and Jericho as he is always Canadian and Jericho getting jealous of KO friendship with him, would be comedy gold. Or Roode befriends and turns on them.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Jan 2017 10:41:54
I'd be happy to just see Roode get in to the Royal Rumble.

More like Chris Hero Sandwich

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Jan 2017 18:45:11
He's always had top notch ring endurance, so it shouldn't matter too much. His weight over the years has fluxuated. His body type has been anything between Bo Dallas and Bray Wyatt. If it wasn't for the suit, he would look like he fits right in with the Wyatts.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Jan 2017 10:12:29
He has got bigger but it hasn't affect his ring performance. I think WWE are starting to lean away from this now with guys like Owens and Joe being so dominant. I wonder if Hero will be stuck in NXT for a whhile due to taking Joes place while Joe moves up onto the main roster.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Jan 2017 19:37:32
I see kenny omega has left njpw and Japan to assess his future.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Jan 2017 21:19:02
It's probably just to take a break and then squeeze some extra money out of NJPW. If he were to head to WWE though, now would be the best time to do it. Meltzer seems to think that if WWE offered what is essentially a main eventer starter package, he would sign.

Whatever he does, I hope it leads to him buying a mask that doesn't look like it was bought at a dollar store.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Jan 2017 21:26:50
After what is undoubtedly best match of the last 2 years I would love to see him in wwe

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Jan 2017 11:29:11
I'd love to see Omega in WWE. The match v Okada was ridiculously good. If Joe and The Revival go to Raw, I'd love to see Omega and Nakamura both on Smackdown. I doubt the Blue brand would get them both but there would be huge potential for excellent matches and feuds (Omega, Nakamura, AJ Styles, Ambrose, Cena, Orton, Wyatt)

Agree1 Disagree0

08 Jan 2017 14:38:21
Omega would add something wherever he goes. The wrestlers that Monkeyman has listed would be fantastic and would help Smackdown cement it's place as a different brand to RAW. It also gives enough top raters to ensure good competition. You could add Harper to the list as well.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Jan 2017 19:27:24
It seems likely that they'll do some type of event after Mania to move talent around. Styles seeming to be the most likely with Vince supposedly wanting him on RAW. Maybe it'll be a draft lottery where NXT is treated like ECW used to be? So instead of just having NXT talent "called up, " they get replaced with well known jobbers for the next wave to use as steppingstones.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Jan 2017 00:12:12
Interesting read earlier going back to the undertaker higher power angle in 99. Rumour has it it was supposed be Christopher Daniel's. Who at the time was doing a evil Priest gimmick on the Indys. What could have been is my reaction. Great wrestler who would have flourished in wwe. Apparently Vince looked at him and didn't like his size. What's everyone's thoughts

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Jan 2017 11:16:40
Daniels has never really done it for me. Mind you, Vince has always thought bigger is better. It took the likes of HBK and Bret to shake things up.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Jan 2017 13:32:02
It's the reason styles declined the contract in 01 As well I think felt he wasn't big enough. Wasn't far wrong when u see sum. Of the people Vince tried to push in 02/ 03

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jan 2017 21:06:44
So on next week's RAW Reigns is going to defend against both Jericho & Owens in a handicap match thereby finally morphing Reigns into Super Cena at his most annoying and invulnerable as Vince has always wanted.
It is such lazy writing and is absolutely pointless.
Please, please introduce some new blood. Dillinger or Joe (not Nakamura as I want him on Smackdown).
Let someone like Big E have a go. I have lost count of the number of times it has been Rollins v Owens v Rollins v Jericho. It has got very old very fast.

Agree2 Disagree0

07 Jan 2017 01:23:28
Someone on wreddit recently posted that 14 of the 18 matches Reigns has had on RAW since the brand split, have been against KO and/ or Jericho.

With Mickie James set to join SD, I'm guessing they also get Dillinger and then RAW gets Joe and the Revival after RR. Whenever they call up Nakamura, I want a feud with him and a heel turned Ambrose more than anything.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jan 2017 13:06:57
Not sure if this is a spoiler or not considering WWE have posted this on their own Facebook and Twitter but Chris Hero returned at last nights NXT Tapings using the old Kassius Ohno name. He walked up to Nakamura and tapped the NXT Title with his Elbow.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jan 2017 17:09:54
I'm glad to see him back. I hope it's a short run in NXT and then to a main roster. We've gotten to see a Shield triple threat, now I want to see a triple threat between the originally proposed Shield members.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jan 2017 19:46:20
I don't think that Hero would have improved the original Shield. Reigns has only turned into a dick since they split.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Jan 2017 02:54:02
They would of never been pushed as hard or as long, but they would of still likely been a big deal. They also would of been a lot better in-ring. For me it's just taking a fun 'what if' to create a matchup between three great talents.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Jan 2017 11:29:22
I do like a what if.
What if Cena decided not to block Wade Barrett's push?
What if Rick Rude had been given the championships he deserved?
What if Ted Turner had won the Monday Night Wars?
What if Reigns was even remotely likeable?
How good would RAW and Smackdown be if there weren't so many PPVs?
What would Shane McMahon do if there was nothing high to jump off?
The list is endless.

WON reported that ROH officials expect Kyle O'Reilly (FA now) and Adam Cole (FA in May) to be going to WWE. The officials also said it about Ray Rowe but WON went on to say that Rowe and Hanson are trying to keep War Machine together and do a package deal with the company they sign with.

There won't be the Young Bucks or Jay Lethal coming to WWE, but O'Reilly, Cole, and possibly War Machine would be sweet.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jan 2017 15:00:33
O rielly is a certain imo. He only won the Title a month or so ago and losing it to Cole yesterday sounds like a he's leaving roh to me.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jan 2017 22:15:06
The way it sounds, Cole is basically a done deal, they just have to wait until his contract is up. O'Reilly seemed likely as well. War Machine seemed more like a toss up between WWE or ROH and/ or NJPW.

Cole would really make me more excited about a potential Club vs Shield match. O'Reilly signing would be awesome as well. Plus there'd be another pair of wrestling soulmates in WWE. If War Machine signs, I hope it's done with a desire from WWE to really build up the tag divisions.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jan 2017 13:03:04
I would assume we may see O'Reilly very soon. Also Adam Cole had trials a couple of years ago but WWE told him to get a little more experience due to his young age.

I believe Ricochet may sign very soon too. He is unable to sign for anyone until the last episode of Lucha Underground season 3 is on TV. This should be next month.

I would like to see Bobby Fish join O'Reilly.

Did anyone manage to grab a watch at wrestle Kingdom 11. Awesome show topped of by a moty Contender for the rest of 2017. Kenny omega vs Kazuchika Okada.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jan 2017 08:43:44
it was fantastic from start to finish. All the matches were quality and none of them seemed like a dead rubber. The last 4 matches were all insane and then the last 10 minutes of Okada vs Omega was incredible. Makes me realise that I should watch a lot more NJPW.

Agree1 Disagree0

05 Jan 2017 12:06:40
A read somewhere that meltzer gave the last 3 matches 4.5 stars and the omega okada match 6 stars lol if true that's unheard of.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jan 2017 14:10:40
I saw that earlier too. I think Meltzer has only given less than 30 5 star matches since the late 80s and 6 star is unheard of.

They must be getting worried about the RAW viewing figures. Taker & Michaels have both been advertised for next week's show.
I know Smackdown prides itself as the next generation show, but it would be nice if RAW tried something new as well.

HBK was likely planned awhile ago considering his movie and RR being in his home town. Undertaker makes zero since and appears to be solely a product of a knee-jerk reaction.

They were up against a big football game last week, and they'll be up against a bigger one next week. So SD is still in a great position to beat them again next week. This week is the one that could really make some people in the back nervous if numbers aren't what they hope for or expect. No outside competition, a heavily promoted Goldberg, and the first show of the year. It's unlikely to happen, but my year would already be made if Ambrose vs Miz had better ratings than Goldberg.

I don't care what they say, I don't feel like there is competition there, its a load of nonsense trying to have a ratings war with yourself.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jan 2017 14:44:57
The good thing is it must be pissing off Vince that smack down is the better show. It seems to me he takes more pride in raw and always has done so for his child to be getting beat he must be passed aff. Wouldn't surprise me if he sabotages sd.

Pretty underwhelming RAW for the most part.
I did enjoy the end, even with it being the people that stood tall. It was different than the usual, and imo no one left looking bad.
It was also nice seeing Owens "officially" get his own show. In todays WWE, it's like becoming a made man in the mob.

'Bring it to the Table' was interesting. JBL and Heyman were far too simpatico though. I'd like to see people like DB and Booker T added to the mix.

With the new year starting for wrestling tonight, what are some things people want to see in 2017? And/ or what are something things you think will happen in the year?

Things I think will happen.
- Cena gets 16 and 17.
- Undertaker does not retire at Mania.
- Balor and Styles switch brands.
- Steph helps HHH win against Rollins at Mania.

What I want to see.
- World title reigns for Bray and Cesaro.
- IC title staying out of the hands of pure mid-carders.
- Nakamura and Asuka on RAW or Smackdown.
- 2 hour Ironman match, Ambrose vs Hero.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Jan 2017 19:55:59
I actually wouldn't begrudge Cena getting his 16th title and like Jables says it will happen.
Other things that will happen;
Reigns will continue to be pushed and the Shield will reform.
They will continue to shove Banks/ Flair down our throats.
HHH will fight Rollins at Mania.
Taker will retire at Summerslam.
They will continue to have Goldberg/ Lesnar all the way to Summmerslam.
Jericho will turn on Owens and will turn heel.
Tag team wrestling will not improve.
Styles will have the match of the year against Nakamura.
Balor will win a championship.
RAW storylines will not improve.
Smackdown will continue to be the better show.

What I want:
More competition, not just the same again and again.
RAW and Smackdown to be actual shows and not to be just adverts for the PPVs.
The Bullet Club to reform properly as a cross promotional force to face The Shield and the Wyatts.
Vince to retire, Steph to retire aand Shane not to jump off anything.
Miz to win a world title that his performance last year deserves.
Corbin to be a regular contender.

I'm going to be honest here and reflect on the one wrestler that at the end of 2015 I couldn't stand and now actually like seeing and listening to John Cena my best 5 superstars of the year are

1 Kevin opens
2 Chris jericho
3 aj styles
4 ziggler
5 strowman.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Jan 2017 08:32:23
My favourite of 2016
1.aj styles
2.finn balor
3.kevin owens
4.shinsuke nakamura
5.Chad gable

Late entry and honourable mention as he only appeared 2 weeks ago neville, his heel turn is breathed new life into the cruiserweights and mews me genuinely interested in 205 live.

Agree1 Disagree0

01 Jan 2017 09:56:55
Okay here goes my top 5 with justifications.

1 AJ- He's been phenomenal (pun intended) . One the best all round wrestlers today.

2 Jericho- A brilliant reinventing of his character. Genius in how he took a basic clip board prop and made it a key part of his character.

3 Owens- Has been top notch all year and looks right at home at the top of the Raw tree.

4 Rollins- Would be higher but took too long to embrace his face turn, should have come back face from his injury.

5 Strowman- Clever booking has helped but his character suits him down to the ground. Gaining confidence on the mic every week. Last few weeks he's not looked out of place near the top of the card. I've also listened to a few interviews with him and he seems to be grounded and to have a love for thr business. Could be the next great big man.

Honourable menylons go to.
Miz- stellar heel work all year.
Cena- Less comedy and more focused promos have been a welcome change.
Wyatt- always liked him looks like he's finally being booked right.

I've also done top 5 most annoying. In no particular order.

Amore- his shtick got old fast, he's not funny and why is he being portrayed as the good guy when he tries to get it on with another guy's wife? I'm behind Rusec defending his marriage here.

Reigns- SuperReigns . Also why is the US champ being portrayed stronger than the Universal?

New Day- became caricatures of themselves. Too much forced humour.

Shane- didn't see the point in him taking one of the spots on team smackdown


Shining Stars- why are they on my tv?

Agree0 Disagree0

Well, after last night I dare say we will be seeing Ronda Rousey on WWE. No future at all for her in MMA.
On a completely different point, is anyone else getting bored with Enzo Amore? His ramblings are making less sense each week and if anyone deserves a 'what' chant from the crowd it is him, though this would be because they haven't got a clue what he is going on about.
Cass has enormous potential, but Amore? The word certified springs to mind, but without the G. And you can't teach that,

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Dec 2016 12:02:50
Seems like the top Mma women have found out she can't box mate. Is her draw still as big in wwe after retiring with 2 Brutal loses. That's the big question.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Dec 2016 14:08:52
I hope they don't bring Rousey in but they probably will. I find Enzo very hit and miss, sometimes he's funny sometimes it doesn't work (or I haven't got a clue what he's going on about) Not so sure about Cass. He has got potential but Strowman has a lot more potential and will be THE big guy for the next few years IMO. I prefer Corbin to Cass as well. He looked like a legit monster in the triple threat with Ziggler and AJ. That was really good booking. Put him in with the 2 best sellers and make him look a proper threat.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Dec 2016 16:27:05
I think they'll still want Rousey, if for no other reason, because she's a name brand. She'll also probably be cheaper to sign now, and Steph still wants her marquee Wrestlemania match. With other female MMAers like Van Zant possibly coming to WWE as well, they may also want Rousey as the headline star to do something like a MMA women vs 4 Horsewomen match down the line. Or maybe the E network will get her signed just to have her on Total Divas?

I feel the problem with Enzo is a combination of oversaturation and continuous pointless storylines. It also doesn't help that an increasing number of people are just waiting for Enzo and Cass to split. It probably wouldn't hurt them to hit the Smark Easy Button and turn them heel.

Rumours are that Kurt angle is to return in April. What's your thoughts on that guys

29 Dec 2016 18:43:10
I hope it's true. Angle is freaking awesome!

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Dec 2016 19:32:36
He is that mate. The matches with rollins Owens Zayn etc would be top notch.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Dec 2016 19:37:35
Angle was, as Monkeyman says, freaking awesome at his best. I now expect to be shot down.
But like Taker, like Sting, Like Goldberg, his best is way behind him. He has suffered injury after injury and has lived a hard, tough life.
I don't mind him having a guest appearance in the Rumble as that is what the event is for. Surprise names from the past and potential for the future getting the crowd on their feet before being cheered to the back following their courageous elimination.
I hope that is all we see of Angle on WWE. I find it very sad to see someone who in the past was so good wrestling at a fraction of that greatness.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Dec 2016 19:58:50
Angle has been threw a lot on his body but I think he could still put on a hell of a match these days especially with a younger fitter opponent like a Zayn or owens.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Dec 2016 11:39:33
Angle is nearly 10 years younger than Sting and is a few years younger than Taker and Goldberg. He's always been way better than all 3 of those in terms of in ring ability. As Tazz would say "He's like a freaking cyborg! " I reckon he could still go in the ring and put in a great match. He could also be used as a manager for American Alpha further down the line.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Dec 2016 19:45:03
If he can still go and he takes on a role similar to Jericho's current one, I'm all for it. Especially since he would likely be replacing Jericho in that role. As Jericho is reportedly set to leave after Mania to go tour.

Soooo. Cena to beat Styles and Taker to win the Rumble anyone? Cena gets his 16th championship, Taker beats Cena at WM then retires and we get the only WM match we havnt seen?

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Dec 2016 12:50:00
I think you're half right mate. Cena to beat AJ at RR, and Taker to win RR and challenge Cena at WM. But I think Cena will cheat to win and will turn heel. There's a lot of talk of Cena going part time and doing more TV and Hollywood stuff. They've got AJ Styles ready to be the new top face of Smackdown and Ambrose ready to be the tweener. Throw in Cena and Miz as your top heels, Taker to do a part time schedule (and probably a trade or two between rosters) and Smackdown is good to go again for another year.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Dec 2016 15:21:23
I think the Taker will be allowed to leave on his own terms. It is the least he deserves and Vince rates the loyalty he has shown, especially when everyone else was jumping to WCW very highly and owes him for that loyalty.
I suspect Styles will beat Cena at the Rumble, Cena to intefere in the Mania match between Styles and Taker, turning heel in the process and Taker to have his revenge at Summerslam in his final match, which would have a certain symmetry to it.
Cena, like Monkeyman says, is cutting down his WWE appearances, and with Taker, he finally has someone he doesn't outrank.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Dec 2016 17:12:58
I'll go with:
RR - Cena over Styles, Owens retains, and Jericho wins the Rumble.
EC - Cena retains and Undertaker wins the EC match to become #1 contender with Shane costing Ambrose the match at some point.
FL - Owens retains over Zayn and Jericho keeps WM spot after HHH costs Rollins the match.

At Wrestlemania.
SD: WWE title Cena (c) vs Taker. Ambrose vs Shane No DQ. Wyatt vs Orton. IC title multi-man. SDW title multi-woman.
RAW: Goldberg vs Lesnar. HHH vs Rollins. Universal title Owens (c) vs Jericho. RAW-W title 3 or 4way. U. S. title Reigns (c) vs Strowman vs Zayn. RAWTT title multi-team match.

Styles faces Balor in a marquee "interpromotional" match.

SDTT (multi-team) and the CW (multi-man) title matches headline the pre-show with the interpromotional Andre Battle Royal and a multi-woman RAW vs SD tag match.

There's also expected to be a Big Show vs Shaq match that will probably be one of my toke breaks.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Dec 2016 08:46:08
I think taker will intervene in cenas match at RR, with it going dark as cena is about to pin styles. Lights come up with cena laid out but styles placed over cena for the win. On the following smackdown taker says he did it as cena doesn't deserve matching flairs record and if he wants a chance to get to 16 he will need to go through taker at wrestlemania. But if cena loses he can never have a title match again.

Agree0 Disagree0
