Does any one know what's happened to Lars Sullivan? he was meant to be the next big thing. I know he's had some personal issues and also been in trouble but haven't seen him in wwe in ages.

Agree0 Disagree0

He has done his knee in and is thought to be out for at least 6 months.

I am not going to do a whole card prediction for Summerslam, but this is what I hope the fall out will be.
Rollins is no longer considered as the main contender for the title.
Lesnar needs a big man to lose to and for me this has to be Strowman. Let NcIntyre have his reputation rebuilt and a feud for the title between the two could be fantastic.
Shane McMahon disappears without trace.
Wyatt to crush Balor who is taking time off anyway. He can return in a couple of months as the Demon takes on the Fiend.
We don't see Goldberg anymore.
Lynch has a future feud with Banks.
Please find something to do with Aleister Black. Wouldn't mind seeing a short feud with Andrade.
Reigns to take the title from Kingston and then a feud with Bryan.
Let Ricochet continue with Styles for a while longer.
And how can you have the second biggest show of the year without any tag teams? Goldberg is there. Trish is there. McMahon is there, but no New Day, Usos, Bryan and Rowan, OC etc?
Please make tag teams relevant again.

Hi guys not posted in over 2 years! Just wanted to see if people would think this idea would work. Let's say Daniel Bryan and Rowan are the attackers on Reigns, Reigns and Samoa Joe then enter a feud with the 2, then after a couple of weeks Harper returns and has a 3 on 2 advantage, the Usos then help which gives them a 4 on 3 advantage, until Bryan recruits Heavy Machinery who need to be repackaged for any kind of push, they look like they could fit in with the whole Bryan bearded crew and this could be an interested faction feud. I know Harper is running down his contract but do people think this could work? Probably dreaming I know!

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Aug 2019 13:18:14
Quite an interesting idea there, Heelsam. But would that ever cross their minds? I can only imagine how huge that will be for the WWE universe and the stars involved.

If the WWE want to promote new stables then I can definitely see a Samoan team emerging which would have the when will Joe turn on the others element. Not too easy to see who could logically join Bryan and Rowan as it looks like Harper is on his way out. I suspect the likes of McIntyre might be used once the Shane debacle has finally played out.
A more appealing opposing team may well be the OC with Balor being added. I know they are currently involved with the New Day, but with the wild cards I don't see why they all can't feud with each other.
Heavy Machinery are an interesting one. The Viking Raiders are just as lost at the moment. It may be that a feud between the 2 would sort out both teams problems.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jul 2019 11:44:30
There has long been a question of who could be the face of the company to follow in the footsteps of the likes of Austin, The Rock, Taker, HBK, HHH, Cena etc.
It is becoming increasingly clearer that Rollins is not the answer.
His mic work seems to be getting worse and is becoming whiney. His wrestling seems to have suffered as a result of the increased responsibility and the crowd chanting one more time as Lesnar manhandled him last night shows his popularity has dwindled.
Who to take over?
I am afraid there is only one clear candidate and that is Reigns. Nott my favourite wrestler by any stretch of the imagination, but genuinely can't see anyone else.

Agree1 Disagree0

04 Aug 2019 09:21:55
Totally agree but the WWE seem to have put all their eggs in one basket.
I'm not saying he could be the face of the company but I wish they'd push Owens and handle him properly. He's perfect for the Austin role, a badass that will fight anyone and pretty much do what he wants.
The biggest gripe I have with WWE is their refusal to let heels win clean, sometimes life isn't fair and very often the bad guys do win.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jul 2019 22:48:16
I can see this happening at Summerslam, Bray Wyatt as the fiend beats Finn Balor as the demon most likely. Then I can see Bray attacking Randy Orion in his match against Kofi and costing him the wwe title to set up Bray’s next feud.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jul 2019 17:38:13
Orton*.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jul 2019 15:00:30
Surely not.
Rumours are flying around that there is a Sting/ Taker match in the offing.
Sting is 60 with a more than bad back and Taker is looking older than his 54 years.
This has a Saudi Arabia match written all over it but it is a complete farce.
No lessons learned from the Goldberg/ Taker fiasco.
Sting and Taker are 2 of the all time greats and deserve to be treated as such, not paraded before us so we can watch them physically falling to bits.
I can understand people wanting to say they saw the greats, but the best thing about Taker for quite a few years now has been his eternally awesome ring entrance.
Let them come to the ring to speak a few words and people will go home happy. What will not make true fans happy is seeing these 2 great men so reduced and their legacies being thrown into the bin.
They both deserve so much more.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jul 2019 16:21:27
I'd love to see it providing they did it correctly. Big entrances, plenty of Pyro and dry ice. They both rattle off their moves of doom, random tag team/ singles stars come in upset about their lack of opportunities, match called off taker and sting clear house, finishing the match with a show of respect. No legacies tarnished, Saudi prince's are happy, fans are happy and wwe/ performers get a decent pay day!

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Jul 2019 13:54:51
That was the first RAW I have been bothered to watch for quite a while now, and it wasn't too bad.
I wanted to see if Heyman's influence could be seen and the Strowman/ Lashley match had him written all over it, as did Styles/ Richochet.
I know it is early days and that there is no way that either ECW or the Attitude Era will return.
It also depends how far Vince will allow Heyman to come of the leash, but it does hold some promise.
Let's see how Bischoff manages to do on his first Smackdown now.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Jul 2019 14:57:02
Apparently Bischoff isn’t taking over Smackdown till after extreme rules.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jul 2019 09:21:57
Actually, that has to be the best Raw episode I have watched in months. A really welcome dev from Vince I think.

Agree1 Disagree0

04 Jul 2019 12:28:15
That makes sense Red Raw as Smackdown was exactly the same as it always is, decent but no more than that.

Agree1 Disagree0

09 Jul 2019 10:17:16
Seems my optimism may have been a tad misplaced. That was one of the worst RAWs I have ever seen.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jun 2019 18:10:26
What is the point in WWE pretending to have 2 different brands in RAW and Smackdown any more?
The stupid wild card appearances seem to mean wall to wall coverage of certain wrestlers and Shane McMahon on both shows while others don't get a look in.
When was the last time Black, Balor, Rusev, Andrade, Gable, Benjamin, Nakamura, Roode etc etc actually had a meaningful match?
After seeing the reaction that Moxley has received since he left and the way Shane McMahon has somehow become a central figure, I can only imagine the number of wrestlers asking to be released.
AEW must be rubbing their hands together in anticipation.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jun 2019 07:58:29
I’ve pretty much given up on Raw and Smackdown, only read the results now, maybe a YouTube clip. I have the network, but that’s only for NXT.
Can’t wait for AEW to start their weekly show, heard it's going to be on itv, which is a bargain for us UK wrestling fans. Once that starts I’ll probably cancel the network and just read results.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Jun 2019 17:13:11
For some reason I decided to watch Supershowdown last night 🙈🙈 now I've been a wrestling fan for many years and to see The Undertaker and Goldberg do what the did last night was upsetting, these 2 are legends from my Childhood and they should never of been in the ring last night!
Vince really has to step aside, I believe some of the current talents is better than the Attitude Era but they are ruining them!

Wondered if anyone else had watched and their thoughts?

My first post 👍🏻👍🏻.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Jun 2019 20:44:23
I didn't watch it but I have heard that the Taker/ Goldberg match was botched more than once.
I have said it before, but it is incredibly sad watching wrestlers way past their best being wheeled out just so an audience can say they saw them. These 2 have the best ring entrances which is really what people want to see. The wrestling is so piss poor.
It's not just this though. What on earth are they doing with Shane McMahon?
I'm with you on this. Vince is convinced that style will win out over substance and that big names are all people want.
The talent is there, but the direction isn't.

Agree1 Disagree0

10 Jun 2019 20:15:19
Yeah the taker/ goldberg match was probably the worst match I’ve ever seen in 30 years of watching wrestling.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 May 2019 13:30:04
So it has been a few years since I posted on here. I see WWE has continued to drop in quality and we now have AEW to look out for which I think will be awesome. Certainly if Double or Nothing is anything to go by we finally have an alternative to enjoy.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Jun 2019 15:20:28
PS. COME ON YOU SPURS!

Agree0 Disagree1

30 May 2019 12:59:17
Anyone listen to Talk is Jericho with Moxley?
Wonder if Vince decides to sort his product out or if he bows out leaving it to HHH. I think if HHH did take over, it could be a decent show and having 2 options isn't a bad thing.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 May 2019 13:27:11
Been a long, long time since I posted on here but Danmation is back. I listened to the podcast, absolutely brilliant. So pleased for Jon, he had to get out of WWE.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Jun 2019 15:19:35
His remarks about Vince just confirmed what a state WWE is currently in.
He is still in total control and he is completely out of touch with what both the fans and the majority of his own wrestlers want to see.
I really think that now Moxley (still feels weird calling him that) has left a flood of other may wish to join him.
Whether they will be allowed to leave is another thing. WWE must have learned from the Monday Night Wars and will not allow that to happen again.
At the very least AEW must surely make WWE look closely inwards at it's own product.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 May 2019 10:27:16
Will there be an AEW page soon?

{Ed007's Note - We can set one up if you want but you can talk about any wrestling you want on here considering how quiet it is.}

Agree0 Disagree0

29 May 2019 15:51:23
That’s cool.

It is quiet, I thought maybe the Double or Nothing 2 ppv would liven it up a bit.

30 May 2019 10:43:19
I watched aew Sunday morning thought it was a pretty good show.

Other than Lesner's surprise appearance and Lacey Evan's show, what a waste of my while.

Agree1 Disagree0

10 May 2019 21:48:35
I see by the lack of posts recently that everyone seems to be as disillusioned with the WWE as I am.
I haven't seen a RAW for a while and nothing looks like things will improve.
To me, the major problem is that there is just too much WWE available and to fill this, the majority is at best average, but mainly garbage.
No new real stars since the Shield were formed.
Unless they change soon, WWE will drown in the sea of mediocracy that only they are at fault for creating.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 May 2019 22:25:39
Roll on aew is all I say to it.

If it wasn't for nxt i'd stop watching wwe.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Apr 2019 19:39:09
Not a bad few days at all, CM Punk returning to wrestling it seems (I think it was him anyway) and the return of Bray Wyatt which I am actually intrigued to see where this goes. Wonder if his next screen promo will be the dark side of him.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Apr 2019 12:24:42
The Viking Experience.

Whoever Came Up With This Needs Sacking.

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Apr 2019 20:55:39
I suspect it is the same person who came up with Shane McMahon 'Best in the World' and the 'Balor Club'.
Oh and that PPV Great Balls of Fire.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Apr 2019 15:43:02
It sounds like a OAPs day trip.

"Just £30.00 for The Viking Experience bus trip"

17 Apr 2019 20:51:13
LOL.
My money is on Vince which would combine stupid thinking with an OAP.

23 Apr 2019 14:38:41
Bray Wyatt new character. wtf?

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Apr 2019 12:53:41
Anybody else think that Ambrose isn't leaving? With the comments of Lashley, the involvement of his wife and the way he was left in the wreckage of the announce table, if this wasn't the set up of a new rivalry, it was a complete waste of time.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Apr 2019 16:52:41

I was thinking with the Colin Jost, Michael Che and Braun Strowman angle that in the Andre the giant battle royal Colin and Michael will get a couple of superstars or more on their side and group up on Strowman and then out of the blue for the second year in a row Bray Wyatt returns in that match to help out Strowman win the battle royal.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Mar 2019 18:14:06
It does seem very strange that the only way they can get Strowman on the Mania card is in the Andre match. This would have been unthinkable only a short while ago when he was the hottest property in the WWE.
Now he seems to have been relegated to a comedy role, and please don't get me started about a feud with non-wrestlers from Saturday Night Live.
Strowman is in danger of going the way of previous big men who's progress just grinds to a halt before they become stepping stones.
This would be a shame for Strowman. I really hope they let him turn heel and we can have a rampaging monster back instead of a live action version of Wreck It Ralph.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Mar 2019 11:04:07
Boy that was one hell of a SD episode! Kofi keeps endearing himself to the fans and clearly, WWE have two more episodes to get the constantly screwed lad to Mania. The MIZ's promo was one of the best I have seen him cut in a while. It was passionate and intense.

Agree1 Disagree0

22 Mar 2019 21:12:11
As it has done recently, Smackdown knocked RAW out of the park.

17 Mar 2019 00:30:47
There’s plenty of potential opponents for Kurt Angle for his farewell match, obvious ones are John Cena, Undertaker and others included Samoa Joe, Shelton Benjamin, Chad Gable, Rey Mysterio and Roman Reigns and Drew McIntyre but I believe the latter two will be facing each other one on one. But surprisingly I wouldn’t rule out Bray Wyatt they’re saying that they have nothing for him at the minute. Why not let him give Kurt a send off? it won’t happen though.

Agree1 Disagree1

17 Mar 2019 16:32:16
His farewell match is likely to be against Corbin after the history they have had.
Angle to retire after the win, giving the crowd a good feel Mania moment.

Agree0 Disagree1

25 Mar 2019 17:46:56
I think it needs to be against cena because he is the one to introduce cena to the wwe and has a long history with. I think he has to beat cena in smackdown not WM. Cause that's where it all started.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Mar 2019 15:01:14

Saw it last night and I really loved it.
Well worth a go.

14 Feb 2019 20:26:27
Now that Jimmy Uso has been nicked and bailed, who will Shane and The Miz face?
Vince stamps down hard on anyone who gets into trouble and I can't see him allowing the Usos to compete.
Best bet is that The Bar step in and lose again.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Feb 2019 20:59:54

Have got a feeling vince will just have them lose clean to miz n Shane. Ad really like to see sanity get a bash and a decent run. There a good team dain and Wolfe are top wrestlers imo.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Feb 2019 11:17:33
I'd forgotten about that Lantern.
I suppose it doesn't really matter as whoever they were going to face, there is no way that the Miz and McMahon will lose and mess up the match between the 2 at Mania.
Vince will be fuming though.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Feb 2019 20:52:51
Well. That shows what I know.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Feb 2019 10:16:40
Kenny signed for AEW, could have been massive in WWE.

When do people think adam Cole and co will come up to the roster. I think we need some more stables, even Balor Club could have become something.

What do you think guys?

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Feb 2019 16:41:06
I think there will be a few call ups as WWE will have to create strong contests for the Intercontinental and US belts to stop a migration of marginalised talent to AEW. I expect this to happen straight after Mania.
Cole has the potential to be a real star.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Feb 2019 16:23:33
Omega To AEW is the best hing for wrestling. WWE need serious competition so that they pull their finger out and create better content.

Just wanted to see who people's top 5 wrestlers are in the world rite now for me it would definitely be. 1 ricochet 2 aj styles 3 Kenny omega 4 tanahashi and finally 5 Pete dunne.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Feb 2019 16:29:44
Hi Haggis. Good to hear from you again.
As pure wrestlers it is a good list but the likes of Okada, Rollins and Sabre would have to be in the mix.
Big men like Strowman and McIntyre had great years, but for me, and I would never have said anything like this a couple of years ago, the biggest buzz around anyone at the moment is the one surrounding The Man Becky Lynch.

Agree1 Disagree0

12 Feb 2019 16:24:35
in no particular Order

Ricochet

Omega
Okada.

It is strange that people are going for the pure athletes as the best around at the moment but Vince is convinced that bigger is better.
May be a message how the WWE are so out of touch there.
Don't get me wrong, a good big man can be the one to put the show on, but Lensar is no longer the answer.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Feb 2019 16:51:56
I'm not that into the actual matches although I do watch them but its the story, character etc that I enjoy, like above the best thing in WWE at the min is Becky, she really has done well with her push. Its been done so many times by the lads and never by the women so I think that's why its so good.

Agree1 Disagree0

31 Jan 2019 20:27:21
Will the WWE finally have a serious rival in the US with All Elite Wrestling?
It has serious money behind it in the form of Fulham and Jacksonville Jags owners Shahid and Tommy Khan.
They already have Jericho on what has been described as a mega salary package, Neville (or Pac as he calls himself now), Cody Rhodes and Christopher Daniels. It is thought that Kenny Omega is about to join them and who wouldn't be surprised to see Ambrose rock up as well?
There is also talk of Lesnar testing the AEW waters to see what they have to offer.
They have a nascent women's division, though no tag action yet.
AEW sold out it's 10,000 Chicago venue in minutes.
I had long hoped that ROH would offer proper competition, but it now seems unlikely.
AEW has a different feel to it.
Of course they are still new and of course like everyone else they are currently dwarfed by the WWE.
But with the large number of wrestlers on WWE who aren't getting a look in, I can see more being asked to be released from their contracts and AEW could grow into a real alternative.
AEW also has links with NJPW and any proper alternative would benefit not only the fans but also the WWE who may have to up their act to maintain it's near monopoly.
I shall watch AEW's development with interest.

I loved the Monday Night Wars and any chance of a repeat would be welcomed with open arms.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Feb 2019 19:26:16
For me AEW need to target the older audience. WWE aim thier product at younger viewers but is AEW aim it at older viewers they will do really well. I heard they sold out their second show 14000 in tickets in 20 minutes today.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Feb 2019 19:31:14
Saw that. Even though they have not done anything yet, AEW are doing everything right, if that makes sense.
All AEW have to do is tap into the WWE of the late 90's/ early 2000's to have a ready made market, or even the ECW mind set.
Still wondering whether they will have a TV deal or just be on social media.
