    Early night last night. Doesn't even matter how strong a show may look now. I'm just not motivated. Then I watched the main event this morning, it proves that I was correct once more.

    Whatever happened to wild brawl? Whatever happened to a good old fashioned no contest so you can protect your would be the star?

    I suppose they can go back to Braun and Roman. Do the whole, ''I'm not finished with you'' arc again. He will get cheers. :/

    All the best to Cesaro. Dr. Yankem will see you now.

    lolz Best thing I've seen in wrestling in 10+ years. :D

    At ease, gentlemen. I said, at ease....

    Give Cody his surname back damn it. I don't know what it is about Cody, I was never really keen on him during his whole time in WWE, well, I did enjoy his dashing segments. Anyway, it is clear that he is blessed with exceptional comedic timing.

    Vince McMahon wants Bradley Cooper to play him in his biopic. Be funny when somebody else is cast and Vince be like, ''I want Bradley, damn it!''

    Are we getting ready for the first ever falls count anywhere hell in a cell match?

    I thought the point of the cell was so you couldn't go anywhere.

    I'm still super pumped for this match.
    Not as pumped for the loss of Jinder Mahal and the end of the Maharaja's reign. I just don't like watching Nakamura's matches that much.

    Corbin is done, that guy went from MIB winner to losing to freaking Dillinger.

    What a ridiculous stipulation. Don't really have the urge to watch the show. I'll check out the results.

    Shield reunion is on then. That doesn't feel inspiring either. Pretty much because Ambrose and Rollins have already beat Cesaro and Sheamus multiple times. I sometimes think about Rollins and go back to when he was 1-19 on TV as world champion.

    Baron Corbin needs to become a werewolf.

    Very good. haha Sean Waltman was talking to somebody about how you change Corbin. Sounded like a good idea an paper, but yeah, no doubt that is would suck, and not in the way they intended.

    Either Shane or Owens is flying off the top of that thing. It would not surprise me is KO lets Shane actually hit him with an elbow off the cage. Taker rolled out fo the way. KO might take it. Then either fall on top of Shane as they both passed out or shane ends up ontop of KO. That's how I see the match ending, after an elbow off the cage.

    Then after Shane wins he can full heel and win the belt of Nakamura with help from Owens. Basically anyone not named Balor or Reigns can beat Nakamura and I will be happy.

    As for Corbin its crazy. The guys big and agile has awesome moves was getting a push then got into a battle a stupid reporter and got buried. I will still pull for the guy even though he has a weird looking belly button.

    Think im ready to walk with Alias (maybe Eliase). Love his heel songs and a great wrestler.

    I read Cena said Corbin wasnt ready to the brass, cena was applauded for leaving the ring at no mercy. Great guy, but not good at wwe now.

    I think it Elias. And yes he is great. He was at an NXT live event I went to and I told my buddies he act wont work at NXT, but he will be great on one of the other shows. Most of the NXT guys have zero personality (Roderick Strong) and Elias was never going to be able to entertain NXT fans. But man was it funny.

    Cena has done what most of the top guy do. And that's try to hold onto their spot for as long as possible. Cena was and is selling merch by the truckloads so he gets some pull, and you are right he seems like a decent human human being. Although I will never forgive him for squashing the nexus before they could put the strap on Barrett. Barrett should have been champ and the nexus could have been a good run. It would have out NXT over way sooner than it did.

    Baron Corbin is back then. New US champion.

    Jinder retains. Could AJ be the one to bring the title home to good ol USA USA USA? Then Nakamura can turn heel and they fight.

    Been hearing a lot about Shane's punches last night. Going to have to check this out. I want to be amused.

    Sami Zayn is bad man.:)[​IMG]

    Your guess is as good as mine with Corbin. The match was good and it worked perfectly how AJ lost without actually losing. At this stage Corbin could win the Rumble and win the belt at Mania or he could lose to Mojo Rawley next week and disappear, I have no clue.

    I guess WWE decided it was better if Jinder had the title when they do their tour of India here soon. And that is as clean of a victory as any heel will ever have.
    I'm glad jinder is still the champ, I don't enjoy Nakamura's work much at all. He cant have good matches with many people yet.

    I am curious to see where this KOP and Zayn thing goes. Will I actually start caring about Zayn and what happens. He does great work like so many guys but the character is lacking.

    Yes, check out Shane punches. I cant figure out what they were going for on that one.

    I don't think Nakamura's style translates well to WWE. No doubt he is one of the most charismatic stars they have but it hardly matters when you've been hit with so many nicknames and so on. King of strong style has been neutered by the system. The ruthless heel is a universal language. Not too late.

    Is too late for Bray. WTF is this? lol

    Heard everybody in the building was laughing at it. Big Dave was on the case. Said something about Bray being an interest killer that has the ability to bring everybody around him down. Burn.

    I kept thinking Finn is going to crack here. hahaha Not sure how he kept a straight face.

    Sister Abigail should be Bailey. Can you imagine the heat, she could do the ultimate heel turn and say she was playing the system all along and now is the time to reveal who she really is...The fans throw the rubbish into the ring, ala Bash at the Beach when Hogan turned and Bailey says that all the crap in the ring represents the fans, and after all she did, they can all stick it.

    I would seriously love that to happen, the most squeaky clean women's wrestler turns out to be the biggest heel.

    Is Bayley even that popular? Not sure I see much junk hitting the ring if this happened. Think it is just the dose of apathy people now feel towards her character, and most characters to be fair. Now people are dreading Asuka being next. Sucks when you can't have real optimism because you always know Vince will be Vince.

    Of course, I'm not saying it is a bad idea. It sounds good on paper.

    She is not that popular now, since they don't know how to handle NXT wrestlers on Raw properly, but the fact many are starting to boo her and think she is too goody goody and as a result stale, this would a nice way for her to say - you fans can stick it, I am sister Abigail. But, of course, that will never happen, just would like to see it. Not often we get a squeaky baby face go full fledged heel.

    Didn't watch the Sister Abigail thing. It sounded dumb, anything involving Finn I ignore because he will make it worse. This Bray thing has ran its course. Bring back DiBiase Jr. and take Bo Dallas and make a 3 person Money INC team with Bray.

    All Finn has is an entrance, Shinsuke the same. Roode without that song would not be half as popular.

    Wrestling entrance songs don't get much better than this one. Those guys aint doing nothing anyway.


    I have a friend who watches wrestling on and off, when he asked me to explain Nakamura and I sarcastically said he is king of strong style my friend asked me what that meant. And I said it involves more kicks and punches and real submission holds. My friends response basically echoes my opinion. If we want to watch kicks and punches and real submissions we will watch an actual MMA fight. Also what Brock does is basically strong style

    A vintage theme. I approve of bringing Ted Dibiase Jr back.

    I'd get technical in that discussion. I'd start pulling rank in a typically disgusting wrestling fan that thinks he knows it all way. I'd say Brock is the king of shoot style. :p

    So if Brock is shoot style then next time I explain strong style to someone I will just tell them something about they kick and punch really hard and don't do any actual wrestling moves.

    Jinder will be champ through tour of India and drop belt at clash of champions or the Rumble is my guess.

    Owens and Zayn future tag champs? I might start caring about Zayn again.
    I like how they set up them treaming up. Zayn trying to do everything the right way but just being mediocre. Shane saying he brought Zayn in to to give him exposure and not delivering eventually turned Zayn to the dark side and helping and helping Owens. It all makes too much for a WWE story, the will find a way to ruin it.

    I'm all in on the Bludgeon Brothers. Stupid name but Harper is the man and Rowan is pretty decent.
    Still waiting on Authors of Pain call Up. Smart move to tie up some story lines so they don't end up like Asecnsion.

    Sounds good to me. haha

    WWE is on in the background now. Some highlights show. Just heard this loud pop. The Shield standing together.

    I love the Bludgeon Brothers name. Yeah, WWE will find a way to ruin it. Owens and Sami do gel though. Still haven't watched the match from Sunday.

    They should let Jinder Mahal keep it to Wrestlemania. As long as the fans care about the challenger, it would be a long ass reign compared to how it usually is in this era. Would seem like a big deal in theory. I'd go with AJ as the rumble winner.

    Bray is a mess. I still want him to be something but he's basically been a jobber for 3 years.

    But he had the belt for like a week. And when he won that belt I really though something was gonna change. Then he started messing with Finn and I was like he is done. Because you fight a guy that is 5 foot 5 150 pounds but he paints half his body and fans raise their arms in sync with his music and then the match starts he just does the dumbest looking moves a suicide dive and a dumb looking double stop that Lo-ki made look 100 times better you got no chance.

    This sister Abigail thing should be the ned of the Bray Wyatt character. Maybe he just comes out in regular clothes and laughs at the fans and says he was trolling them for 3 years, because that is what it feels like at this point.

    His act still has a superstar feel about it. Or it did for longer than it normally would for a guy that loses all his feuds. So no doubt he has something. Yes, good music. His rambling now makes everybody zone out. Everybody. Not even stretching the truth. Fresh coat of paint is needed. I would not expect it.:p

    Looks like Neville is gone. Still all speculation at the minute. They're saying that he was told he was losing to Enzo and he walked out. Neville would not do the job! Saying that is the tip of the iceberg. He wouldn't be stuck for work. Very talented.

    On one hand I understand why would be mad about losing to Enzo. On the other hand ever since he lost the belt to Enzo the cruiserweights had been main evening RAW so like it or not people cared enough Enzo to react. Yes Enzo sucks as a wrestlers and generally don't like his promo skills, and he supposedly an a-hole behind the scenes that most people don't like. But he moves the needle which is more than Neville and any of the other CWs in the past can say.

    Neville will always get work though.

    I think AJ will be the next champ. He will beat Jinder after WWE finishes this tour of India they have coming up soon.

    Im starting to like Jinder now, he was way too ethnic in the past. Really good on the mic and is learning new moves. Wasnt impressed when he started, they got him over.

    Nice to see the creative team finally find a way to make the fans cheer for Roman.

    Both shows have been better lately (especially raw), but Lesnar isnt working out as champ. No part timers pls.

    Saw jericho's album came out on friday, hopefully we get him back in the ring.

    I agree with most of this but disagree on Lesnar. Him being champ and not being there every week makes any event he goes to a huge deal. Sadly his last couple matches have been duds in my book. So I would be totally fine with with him losing the belt to anyone except Roman and Neville.

    Roman works with the shield, superman punch them right into dirty deeds. Or the two set the guy up for a spear, I'm fine with that.

    Jericho makes everything great. He got a freakin scarf over and sells 20 dollar clipboards. My only question why no pen?

    Do you know what happens to people who don't buy "The List of Jericho"?

    • Durable aluminum letter size clipboard with "List of Jericho" decal
    • Anodized for maximum durability & provides a smooth hard writing surface while firmly holding papers
    • Strong low-profile clip has excellent holding power
    • Retractable key hole for hanging
    • Measures 13" x 9"
    • 25 x "List of Jericho" pages
    • Pen not included
    • Made in USA.

    Since I cancelled my cable I haven't watched it. Is a great wrestling show. Totally different presentation from anything else. Is Pentagon still busting people up?

    Pentagon is my boy, I need to keep up with him more.
