Predictions time!

For purposes of Batista "appearing" I'm counting anything live, whether he's in-person or via satellite. If they recap the Raw thing again or show a social media post of his Batista did not "appear".

                     bc its a WM title match

Just enough to make sure Miz gets cheered vs Shane.

I wonder how Crippled Haitch is gonna do a match with a torn pec...maybe it was better than expected. Or it was a work all along. Imagine if other stuff got as much planning!

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Couldn't really mess with tickets for anything else on Maina weekend, due to me BS'ing and missing out on some opportunities. I only have tickets to Roh/NJPW G1 Supercard of Honor.

I'm thinking about taking a bus up to NY from Maryland in the morning, enjoying the show, and hopping on a bus right back later that night around midnight.

Too much or worth it since I already have tickets? I could always sell the tickets but I'd rather not miss the show.

In response to Reply # 12


  

          

She wrestled at a house show the other day.

If I had to guess, she is cleared for very light contact. The rumble can work because you can get by doing very little in a rumble. Same with a house show, you can make more a fun laugh match than you can on Raw.

Obviously we don't know the diagnosis she has but it's clear they want to keep her on TV and use her but she can not do much physically. I think because it's head related and she is so young in her career combined with the fact that the women's division doesn't NEED her wrestling this second they are being extra precautious.

Strowman is officially corny.

They've had him lift trucks, cars, skyscrapers, space shuttles and everything else...yet he can't win one match that matters. Now he's been turned into a side show act to engage Frick and Frack leading up to WM. How they botched his story so many times without any worthy payoff is pitiful on the part of the writers.

Along those lines, it's amazing how the best, most over storylines have been by accident. Lynch, Kingston, even Bryan (moreso the first time than this time) all blew up beautifully and organically, while they force feed Batista/Hunter, Styles/Orton, and the NXT tag team.

28. "Strowman and Asuka are their 2 glaring fuck-ups imo"
In response to Reply # 26


  

          

and they're different types of fuck-up.

They threw Braun out there as a big guy experiment. I was nothing for a while but then they magically stumbled onto the most over guy in the company. Now almost 2 years later and it's a big ol' dud. I even gave them a pas for their Mania shenanigans last year. It was fun for the live crowd and they didn't have anything better planned, so whatever, they could always fix things with him, right? Nah... just have him look unbeatable for a couple weeks at a time until he loses in a really dumb way. Rinse and repeat, never give him the title.

Asuka, on the other hand, they put a TON of work into building up, and then whenever they get the chance to capitalize on that work they simply don't. I didn't even mind her losing to Charlotte last year (though BOTH her and Shinsuke losing was BS), but they still could've built her back up and chose not to. Sure, they gave her the title eventually, but where the hell is she most of the time? She tapped out Becky and then disappeared from TV!!! Inexcusable.

You have to eventually let the monster win, or else no one's going to believe a fucking word they say. Him getting nerfed by Brock in 9 minutes after dropping the fucking stage on him a week earlier was the beginning of the end for him.

30. "yup, there was no reason not to run with him there"
In response to Reply # 29


  

          

they wanted Brock vs. Roman at Mania 34 and they were dead set on it... we all saw how that went, but fine, I understand why that's what they wanted. That didn't mean they had to completely deny Braun his shot at the top though:

-Have Braun beat Brock at either Summerslam or Night of Champions.
-Brock gets his win and title back at the Rumble.

Braun and arguably Brock come out of that looking stronger and once Braun leaves you still have a credible monster... but no, they were completely entrenched in "We have to pretend that no one has ever kicked out of the F5" mode.

It seems like Braun ticked somebody off backstage so they cooled him all the way the fuck off ON PURPOSE. I don't understand really, but I almost hope that this is what really happened.

Other options:
- WWE screwed the pooch and are now shocked that he's cold.
- Brock doesn't like him and wouldn't lay it down for him, so WWE flaked on him.

It's crazy to think that Brock was fine looking like a bitch for Goldberg more than once to make the Mania rematch work better, but he couldn't see the value in doing a similar thing with Braun. But hell, maybe he got tender about that Braun green potato he got. Or maybe WWE never even asked him to do it.

EXACTLY

They finally put the belt on her just so they could use Lynch, Flair, and Meanie Face as the forefront women's storyline, and Asuka is the best of those available. Totally wasting her time and talents.

being thrown together more than most years?

Of course, the main matches have built over time, but others...man.

Angle vs Corbin? Styles vs Orton? Of course, since the men have done it, now the women are bringing back old-timers with Beth Phoenix getting a title shot with Natalya. I've seen rumors of Samoa Joe vs ....I can't say it...Cena.

You can't slow build everything, but some of this makes little sense, especially when there are quality guys that haven't got matches yet with three weeks left. I guess they have 4335 hours worth of PPV to fill.

33. "Nah this mania card sucks"
In response to Reply # 32


  

          

Women's triple threat- Great and what you built to all year

Rollins vs Lesnar- Ok fine, you did a bad job building a credible Lesnar foe and Rollins is your top guy now, I'm not thrilled by this match on it's own but it's not bad

Bryan vs Kofi- Great, but definitely thrown together and just a rip off of the Bryan story from WM 30 with less build and time behind it

But yea, after those matches?

Just last minute BS as if this was Backlash, no building to anything at all...or a repeat of the same shit we've been watching for months already like Finn vs Lashley.

Where are the blood feuds, the risk it all matches? Anything with any meaning besides just a match at WM?

Somehow HHH vs Batista is one of the more intriguing matches.

I will also say I'm pretty sure we aren't getting Corbin vs Angle. They hinted last night a few times about how letdown the Universe was by Angles choice and Cole even said something about he wishes there was a dream match instead. I think we're getting a part timer vs Angle match instead. Taker? HBK? Who knows, but they'll all look old together.

34. "I say just have Angle face John Cena"
In response to Reply # 33


  

          

I'd like to say Samoa Joe vs Angle due to their amazing TNA performance but since Angle can't really go at all like he used to then it would be a waste, and I'm sure the WWE Universe (lmao) wouldn't even have seen them fight before to understand why it would make sense now.

Cena faced Kurt during Cena's debut, would make a lot of sense for him to face him on the way out. I would even say Kurt could put some really good newer talent over on the way out also, but it seems like its too short notice for that to happen. At this point I'd rather see him face anyone but Corbin as I don't want Corbin anywhere near WM other than a pre show battle royal.

Taker showing up to tombstone Angle into retirement after Angle beats Corbin AND Cena? Maybe just maybe. I think Cena lands in the Andre OR somehow involved in Kofi/Bryan.

Maybe WWE is far too worried about killing the crowd emotionally. Maybe that's why they are trying to mix well-told, long-build stories with some 'spilled coffee' shit so that folks can calm the hell down for chunks of time during the show.

I still think they are majorly at risk of having another dead/tired/moody crowd by the time they get to the last 2 or 3 matches depending on how they order this thing.

I damn near don't want the women getting stuck at the end of this long ass double show.

People shitted on WWE's hood over that match announcement. They're gonna have to moonwalk out of it.

Cena still has nothing. Hell, a bunch of folks still have nothing. Maybe they're gonna make The Andre more of a thing with some of the names who could end up in.

This Mania is damn near gonna have to get watched in 2 sittings. I'm glad I'm not going to this long ass show. I wouldn't have the stamina to do it after a weekend of rasslin. I'm just hoping the length of the show doesn't kill the good matches later in the show.

I also hope the number of matches means we don't get 30 minutes of Haitch and Batista laying around making faces.

I was just flipping channels and saw him in there with Samoa Joe... Angle was great in his day for sure, but he can barely move. It was painfully obvious that Joe had his kid gloves on... barely even holding on with a sleeper. What is the point of this?

Yeah. It’s the Ric Flair retirement angle with a much more beat up human being in the Flair role. And he’s not exactly getting HBK to carry him at Mania either.

There’s no telling what active injury Kurt is working with. Maybe a neck. Maybe a knee. Maybe an ankle. No telling. But yes, he looks openly done. And it’s more sad than the Flair one cuz he’s not as old and it’s clear it’s a ‘body is shot’ thing.

I’m glad Kurt is still with us. He was marked for death for more than a decade with the way he worked, pill abuse, and all of that. And somehow he’s still here.

And then went to YouTube to see.

SMH.

There is no way Kurt should’ve been doing that just 4 years ago, after all his body had been through. No wonder his body is wrecked. He’s only 50. Only a couple years older than guys like Jericho and HHH.

He’s gotta take care of himself.

If you're talking in ring action it'll be between this and Takeover, but honestly I'm feeling this may edge out NXT as far as matches go. If you're heavily invested in the wwe drama then I could see someone preferring mania. Not gonna lie, I'm excited to see how the Kofi vs. Bryan and the Woman's main event is going to go, but if we're talking about match quality I'm super pleased I picked this one.

They are just making the women's main event look as important as possible, now both champs are in it. Now Charlotte does not look like a random throw in either.

Ronda will eat the loss to Becky, the 2 will feud on Raw still. Charlotte will go back to SD And head up that division for a while, maybe lead to Charlotte vs Asuka 3 because they have fantastic chemistry.

And now we don't have a throw in SD women's match of Asuka vs some undeserving opponent at Mania. Sucks for her but better for the card overall.

In response to Reply # 47


  

          

2 weeks before Mania, with no build or storyline to the match w/ Asuka

WWE tweeted hours before SmackDown that there was gonna be a 4-way #1 Contender's match that night to see who would face Asuka at WM, so clearly this was a last minute decision.

The only reason to do this is if you are planning on unifying the titles and want to get it done at Mania. I really hope they do this (in fact, I wish they'd unify the WWE/Universal titles, and the Raw/SmackDown Tag Team titles as well) but I'm not sure why they would suddenly decide to do this, last minute, at this time. The only reason I can see them unifying the titles would be because they are putting the women all on one show.

They overbooked this main event really badly since the Rumble, so they had to do a couple things to build back up the hype. First was announcing it would be the main event, which we basically already knew, and the 2nd was throw the other title in there. It does build up the hype, and if anyone needed to look stronger it was Charlotte, but it absolutely sucks that Asuka had to lose her title to help this along. She'll probably be relegated to the battle royal now.

screw the foreign star in order to push the great white hope. There is NO WAY that, if the roles were reversed, that they would bury Charlotte after that streak, then give her a title just to bury her again with the Lynch hype, then make her dump the belt just before the biggest card of the year and essentially leave her off of it.

ZERO CHANCE.

They screwed Nakamura in similar fashion. When will it be ok that someone that looks different can be on top for more than 2 minutes? Then again, Vince is buddies with Trump, so...

Especially as a babyface. Asuka can get out a couple of somewhat understandable sentences at a time. Can you really blame Vince for wanting to go with the Charlottes and Beckys over Asuka?

Getting by on ringwork and a cool entrance works just fine in NXT where you don't have to be on TV every week and on the mic very often, but the main roster is a different kind of show/presentation.

Exhibit A: Brock Lesnar - no mic skills, barely competes, holds the belt for ages at a time.

Exhibit B: Rousey - stumbles through promos every week, has the personality of a piece of cardboard. Champion forever and headlines WM.

Need I continue?

2 folks are obvious exceptions to most rules. They are there to get non-rasslin fans to watch. The biggest problem with Brock is that he won last year at Mania/didn't leave. RR is basically chick Goldberg. She's not meant to last forever, but she's gonna pop both sets of Horsewomen then ride off into the sunset. She's a godsend for them and the women.

Has anyone been screwed worse than Rusev? He should be AEW's first champ. Instead, he's damn near Zach Ryder.

As for Nak and Asuka:

Is Nak not getting pushed because there were ALWAYS limits to his style and character and WWE isn't great at protecting folks with limits sometimes? IE: they've basically ruined most of the solo Shield runs and all 3 of those dudes are at least redeemable rasslers. They cooled off Braun.

OR

Is Nak supreme and just getting totally screwed here?

I'm guessing the truth is somewhere in between. A bunch of WWE's fanbase is Trumpy whether we want to admit it or not. But hell, I can't say I'm amped when Nak talks and it's not something funny. And I notice when he works his Ric Flair autopilot/template style cuz he doesn't exactly care. His age doesn't help either. In defense...I can say that they damn near Booker T/HHH'd Nak when he didn't ever manage to straight up beat AJ Styles during that series of WCW finishes they put out there with the nut shots.

As for Asuka, WWE fucked her off and they need their asses kicked for it. She's badass, beautiful by any reasonable standard, and over like rover in spite of basically being iced. She's like chick Rusev...inexplicably underloved. And she can fuggin work well enough to make good workers looks better and green workers look competent. She's the shit and she doesn't seem to do the autopilot thing that Nak has been accused of even during the later parts of his NJPW run.

It's not like they didn't know that Nakamura and Asuka had limited English skills, so why bring them in, then prop them up just to bury them...unless that is the plan from the outset, which is the gist of my point. If you're not going to give them a fair and equal shot, then hey are tokens and quota-fillers.

In response to Reply # 47


  

          

>Or are we getting Charlotte/Asuka III with Charlotte losing,
>then shoehorning her way into the main any way?

Someone in the back knows that putting the women at the end of a ridiculously long show is VERY RISKY. I wish they understood that a long ass show in of itself is risky period, but oh well...

Now, they've overbooked the RR/SC Lynch angle. As a sad byproduct, they've cooled down Stone Cold Becky Lynch's once nuclear heat. So now, they're trying to jazz it all up with shenanigans WCW style.

But hey, I guess a surprise title change is cool enough? Okay okay, how about this: I'm all for this Mania show losing matches. I'd prefer that over the bullshit of someone getting on the show only to get a short ass match and/or a Raw/SD rollup finish. This is the type of show where you'd damn near WANT to go on early-ish. IE: first two hours of the real show.

This is also the type of show where someone is gonna job to a transition move and someone else is gonna kick out of 2 or more finishers. You know damn well Brock isn't going down off of one stomp/phoenix splash/whatever. And now that Roman is back, I'm not sure he's going down at all.

I wish Asuka could have fared better than basically getting bumped into a battle royal. Her and Nak aren't doing too great nowadays. It's a shame.

That means you're likely unifying the titles

Which also means you're essentially eliminating a women's title during the first ever women's main event in a world where there is a title for everything.

I can't see it.

They aren't above doing that to give Becks the 2 title celebration picture.

Becky, BossHugs, and a reluctant Charlotte Flair all celebrating in the ring would be a sweet replacement for the WM 20 ending that can never be shown again (Benoit and Eddie hugging it out as champs to end the show then things went to the shittiest of shits in the years following).

or they have to defend both in 2 separate matches at Summerslam (a la Seth Rollins) and lose one of those matches. They can find a way out and I think they will.

Rumors for the Day:
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter notes the plan for the main event of WrestleMania 35 is to “come out of this match with a clear direction for next year’s WrestleMania.”
It’s also noted that the idea isn’t to merge the titles but rather it’s likely they’ll announce that whoever gets pinned loses their title, be it Rousey with the Raw title or Charlotte Flair with the SmackDown title.
Speaking of Charlotte, she is going to be promoted as “Ms WrestleMania,” with merchandise calling her that already

The fact that they've shoehorned her into this, overbooked the hell out of the build, is being said to be booked as a setup for next year's Mania, and are manufacturing the marketing behind it so heavily gives me pause enough to think they'd put her over strictly to make use of that marketing.

HBK sort built over a long stretch of time, and that rep was built organically. This is a far more overt branding.

It could mean the setup here is to build a Horsewomen vs Horsewomen next year.

He had the blueprint “steal the show” match with Steamboat. Ran the whole show at Mania 4. Carried Hogan and Warrior to the best matches of their careers, and tore the house down with Flair. And then he came back and made a horrificly stupid match with Crush entertaining.

Michaels....I mean, what good worker couldn’t put on a great match with prime Bret, Jericho, Angle, and HHH-Benoit? And Vince getting the shit kicked out of him in no DQ type matches is always a winner. Those late career Taker matches were something special, but the rest was handed to him on a platter by giving him the best worker at the time. Frankly, his first Mania run from 92-98 was underwhelming overall despite having the main event 3 different times.

Becky is very good, but Charlotte is better IMO.

The story would seem to call for Becky winning, but if they mix it up and Charlotte wins, I won’t be mad.

As long as Ronda doesn’t win.

Personally I’d like to see Ronda get in a blood feud that doesn’t involve the title at some point soon.

* I still think Becky is winning though.

Charlotte is a top 3 talent on the roster male or female. If they had intergender wrestling and no mens/women's divisions I think she could be Universal champ honestly.

But this is Becky's Mania moment, Charlotte can lose this match and still be the GOAT female wrestler when all is said and done.

Either way Ronda is eating this L, so Charlotte can still come out looking great.

Not any 1 of them individually.

The UFC 4 horsewomen aren't ready yet for this big feud, maybe by Survivor Series, but for how Ronda and Shayna are the only 2that the main roster will care about.

The WWE 4 are too big at this point to not have all 4 UFC women at a high level too.

I think we just get a tease of that upcoming story in some way.

If you include the pre-show (which will prob feature 3-4 matches), you're look at 6+ hours of entertainment (and I use that term loosely for a good portion of the broadcast lol)

Pre-show will go from 5pm-7pm (EST) with the main show kicking off at 7pm and recently has been ending around 11:30pm.

My only knock and this really just means I'm impossible to please

It was too consistently good. There is something to be said about the value of a cool down match. It doesn't have to suck, but something you can just relax a little bit during.

About 1/3 thought he main event I was just dragging, I got back up by the end, but also was ready for it to be over and didn't quite pop as hard as I was popping 3 hours earlier. I can't stay at a 10/10 for 3 hours in a row.

I get that is against what NXT does, but I definitely appreciated popcorn matches last night.

I watched it across two sittings. Problem solved.

Mania doesn’t even try to beat Takeovers at this point. There’s too much pressure to put almost everyone on a Mania. The event is worse for it, but I get it.

You can be dope af and get left off a takeover. And the show is usually still so good that you aren’t missed.

I hate that Ciampa got hurt l and ruined what would’ve been a holy shit level main event/match of the weekend shoe-in. But Adam Cole baby did well to show up and show out as a great foil for Jonathan Wrestling to deal with.

I love that Bro and Dream got a chance to go all out.

We've been saying high numbers for effect but shit...how long are we really talking about if we include preshow? 7? More than that? I don't know! LONG!

I'm gonna be playing WWE Champions or dabbling around on Fire Pro World for the first chunk of this Mania. There's no way to survive an event this long without breaks or something else eating a little of your attention. I'm actually glad I'm not going to this one.

Now lookahere! I'm sure there's gonna be goodness to be had. There's too many good rasslers on the roster for the event to be all bad. And there's some matches I'm legit excited for. The triple threat for instance. Kofimania certainly. I'm wondering what happens with Brock. I'm hoping like hell Haitch and Dave don't lay around making faces for 28 minutes when it should be a 16-minute Attitude Era 'everyone involved is hurt so let's walk around throwing punches and weapon shots' type of thing.

But fuuuuuuck is this thing gonna be crazy long. I remember 'feeling' the crowd get tired at 32(Jerryworld Mania in Dallas). By the time Rock came out with a flamethrower and shit, folks were damn near in a sleeper. At least Roman doesn't get stuck going on last for a tired crowd. I'm assuming he goes on early, hosses it up with Drew, and then comes back to FUCK OVER ROLLINS. It's gonna be so great if so..the crowd will LOVE IT.

Every Mania since then is destined to be too long. At some point they have to split it into 2 nights, right? There's quite a few matches (Finn/Lashley for example) that are fine on paper, but are probably gonna be forgettable/annoying when the middle of a 7-hour card. Like you I'm REALLY fearful that shit like Aitch/Batista will drag on and on. I know they want to get everyone that Mania payday, but when it comes at the expense of the audience's patience they really gotta start rethinking things.

There is no way that anything on the WrestleMania card can come close to Naito/Ibushi or Okada/White, or even Lethal/Taven/Scurll. Even Tanahashi/Sabre Jr was a quality match better than 90% of WWE fare. Takeove had a couple of very good matches for sure (War Machine vs Black/Ricochet and Gargano vs Cole) but I am seriously considering skipping Mania because IMO i can only ruin a weekend of great wrestling action.

)I realize my perspective is in the minority)

The challenge with Mania is that it's too comfortable being a long ass and average Wrestle Kingdom. AKA they'll knowingly waste time on matches that 'don't matter' just to get folks on the show. With WK, folks seem to be more accepting because those 6-man whatevers with old dudes and low-card folks are clearly not meant to be important.

But WWE has NXT as proof that they can make the best indy PPVs whenever they feel like it. So they do a ridiculously grand Takeover then turn around and give us a 7-hour Mania with 4.5 hours of stuff that isn't gonna age well even over the course of the night. And they do it in the same damn weekend!

As for NJPW, their best stuff is pretty clearly amazing. But they aren't above falling into formulas and 'match templates'. And again, they'll waste major chunks of cards on shenanigans just like WWE does.

I’ve got a friend who had an extra ticket and was already driving to this, and I turned it down. No way in hell.

I will be paying rapt attention to the main even from my couch. That’s all Ive got.

Most of Lesnar's title defenses the last two years have been sub-10 minute sprints, and they're usually pretty good if he's willing to play ball with the opponent, but that needed another 3 minutes or so to really work. Felt too quick to beat someone built up as a mostly invincible monster.

It was the biggest thing ever to elementary school me and my friends. Everybody took sides. And the crowd stayed HOT the whole match.

In response to Reply # 128


  

          

5 minutes long and it turned on a nutshot

ive only seen 20ish WMs, but that was easily the worst title match of all of them

it was my understanding that Seth Rollins was capable of having great matches whenever? that wasnt really even a match

Are you in any way familiar with his matches?

Are you in any way familiar with Seth's current health?

Are you in any way viewing this match in the context of the rest of the show?

Are you in any way familiar with the way any of this actually works?

If so, it's difficult to see how you arrive at the implication that this match went the way it did because Seth can't put in that work.

This was what most Brock matches are.

Seth has some lingering injuries, and they worked him minimally leading into this match to make sure he was healthy.

This card was as packed at the top as any in recent memory, with Kofi and Becky overshadowing everything else.

We also had two McEgos to stroke, what with Shane and Hunter getting their McMania on.

This match wasn't a short, one sided mess because Seth can't put in high level work. Brock's best matches have been against AJ and Bryan, and both got solid time to build on Survivor Series, which has become a B list show. What we saw tonight was a VERY abridged version of those two matches, and closer to the Balor match at Rumble.

This was Wrestlemania, and for ONCE, they actually built up other stars to a degree that they were capable of carrying the top.

This match could have been so much better, but Seth's ability to put in stellar work is last on the list of reasons why it wasn't

thats the opposite of what im saying. Seth Rollins rep is too big as someone who CAN put in the work, for this to be satisfying.

>This was what most Brock matches are.

yeah but hes the most credible shooter of all time. its fine for him to *win* that way.

>Seth has some lingering injuries, and they worked him
>minimally leading into this match to make sure he was

for him to take bumps, give a nutshot, and then 3 stomps? it feels like a waste.

>This card was as packed at the top as any in recent memory,
>with Kofi and Becky overshadowing everything else.
>We also had two McEgos to stroke, what with Shane and Hunter

i dont see the correlation btwn any of that, and them not being able to have a good match.

Im saying, i already know that about seth. My problem isnt with him, its what they were produced to do. I fully realize nobody called that on the fly a la Harley Race or some shit.

>This was Wrestlemania, and for ONCE, they actually built up

i agree 100%. that doesnt mean they couldnt make better use of the time they did have.

>This match could have been so much better, but Seth's ability

>wasn't

Again, I know. All im saying is that Rollins rep makes this mess all the more confusing. Im NOT saying Rollins is incapable of more than a nutshot. Im saying that telling him to do that is asinine.

Yeah Seth got screwed here.

Vince, for whatever reason, wants Brock to be a caricature; an over the top, overpowered end-boss that you can only beat with some boring, cheap ass tactic.

It's one of Vince's more damaging inclinations over last few years.

your analogy on Lesnar is perfect. move all the way to the left of the screen and jump and shoot every 2 seconds.

and the idea that no one ever just said fuck it and hit this big scary dude in the balls makes all of Lesnar's vanquished foes look like suckers lol

the women's fatal 4 way made me forget about the match before Kingston-Bryan even had the chance to

Like, I read the twitter and message board stuff. There’s been people legit mad for years at Stephanie’s position in the company, who think Shane should be Vince’s successor. They’re super passionate about it too.

It’s weird.

I forget what match it was though I’m thinking Undertaker? But he was legit lights out in that match. I can’t applaud that on any level at this point. It’s just dumb.

This clown goes toe to toe with Angle, Taker, Kane, etc. Everybody. It’s ridiculous.

Even when Stephanie is getting the best of people on the mic....1) It’s words. 2)She’s kayfabe and reality in charge and the scales are tipped to where she has an unfair advantage. That makes sense and it’s about the only way to get heel heat these days.

Shane straight up whups the best wrestlers asses. It’s so dumb.

He was presented as a non-wrestler who was able to catch the real athletes off-guard by being willing to put his body on the line in a way you wouldn't expect from the boss's son. But somewhere along the line we were supposed to accept him as an actual wrestler who can hang with, like, AJ Styles and it got so much more annoying to see him inserted into matches.

It’s always gonna work better when he’s a heel. Because the chickenshit nature of him Haitching his way into matches can be leaned into. And he becomes the guy who eats big spot damage instead of being sold as Rob Van McMahon.

shane actually allowed us to miss him by going away for so long. and he's actually been part of iconic action moments. it makes total sense

She does her job IMO. Someone has to be a real heel, since the cool kid fans gotta cheer every other heel. I generally have no problem with how they use her.

Shane is boring as shit and it completely takes me out of things when he has legit matches with the best wrestlers of all time.

Yeah. I was horrified of shenanigans. I’m glad they played it straight and gave a longtime guy like Kofi a big win. And he had to earn it. An NXT agent must’ve booked that match.

He’s gonna get screwed somehow. Maybe soon, but hey. They got it right tonight.

I convinced myself it was a swerve to introduce Cena as Angle's actual opponent. Guess they still could but that feels like a waste of a surprise.

If he would’ve just gotten the hell out of there, it would’ve been more than good. But nope. Them mofos were out there laying around making faces. 25 minutes.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Post match stuff felt rushed.

7 hour show and they can’t even do that right.

I’m legit annoyed.

Why didn’t they just have Joe beat Angle, since Joe-Rey was a squash anyway? Get Rey and Corbin off the card, give us a last Angle match with meaning, and have him lose to someone legit.

It sucks that he lost to someone as creatively wayward as Corbin though. But I blame that on Creative. I think I side with those who think he could actually be pretty decent if they knew what to do with him.

That being said, Samoa Joe-Angle would have been much better.

In response to Reply # 166


  

          

Just make a women's version that is thinner or a different material but outwardly make it look the same. They would just need to know which one to grab when going under the ring. It would also make it easier for them to set up. This seems like it should be really easy to solve without losing the possibility of the table spectacle in women's matches.

The passion this crowd showed during this match elevated something that was very good, to an all-timer.

I don't do stars or points ornwhat have you, but this had me completely engrossed like few other Mania matches. Very well paced, with minimal bells & whistles, and what extras it did have, were deftly utilized.

Top-tier Mania matches capitalize on the momentum of the moment and tell captivating stories.

This did both, in addition to both wrestlers putting in quality work.

Charlotte is the best seller in the company, by FAR

shes the only wrestler ive seen that progressively sells throughout the match, even on offense, and her facial expressions actually go beyond the standard adrenaline anger face

for me, shes carrying the story of the match 15 minutes in

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

NXT was fire as always. At this point I'll just keep calling it it's own promotion and right now it's the hottest North American promotion out there for constantly putting on quality major shows. Gargano vs. Adam Cole (Bay Bay) was fantastic. My only gripe was how many finishers Gargano kicked out of at the end especially after being attacked by Undisputed Era. He took the 3 count for the first pin fall after a finisher but kicked out of multiples at the end? Anyway I was super happy at the entire card.

I was in attendance for the G1 Supercard and it was the hottest live wrestling event I've ever been to! All the matches involving the NJPW guys were fucking great and I got to witness a true classic between Ibusi vs. Naito and Okada vs. Jay White. The crowd erupted in fuck you's when Enzo and Cass jumped the barricade, we all thought it was them just being assholes but I think RoH may have employed them. Funny because they cut the video feed right when they jumped in.

Wrestlemania is too damn long! What we did get is a fucking fantastic match between Kofi and Bryan. This was the WM match of the night for sure. Thank god the belt is off Brock! I keep hearing people say they need a long show to showcase all of their talent for the biggest PPV of the year. Wrestle Kingdom is only 4 hours or a little longer and they still can squeeze just about everyone in and also showcase some epic matches. No excuse why WWE can't do the same. Shit should be no longer than 5 hours at the max.

Athletic but generally regular dude rassler IS a heavily used ‘character’ now. It’s a necessity tho. That’s what makes the Velveteen Dream really pop. He’s basically WWE’s Okada if they handle this properly.

If everyone was more of a character, we’d be stuck in New Generation Era WWF methinks. And it would NOT be favorable for our viewing pleasure. We have plenty of characters. They just need to do right by more of their amazing ass roster.

Af-1 wins of course. Paps moves to 2nd with the Mania win (that is shared with Oak).

My attempt to go against the grain ended in a dreadful showing. I've gotten or tied for last place in 4 of the last 6 events. If this thing continues I arguably should be banned for my performance the past few months.

In response to Reply # 198


  

          

So no, you have no idea how Kofi and Becky feel. Ya see, when it comes to matches and matches alone I take the cake and I'm the rightful champion, so enjoy your title that was handed to you purely from taking a lucky guess at what the first matches would be, who would show up unscheduled, and how many fingers your favorite wrestler was holding up behind his back. When it came down to what really should matter, the matches, there was only one true King, and that was me!

Now onto Y2Flound, the person who really gave me some competition. It was close, but like I said before in this same exact post, you didn't cut it kid. You had it, you had it RIGHT there, and you couldn't pull the trigger. I'll be the self proclaimed prediction champion of 2018. You should all be thanking Pretentious for not wanting to continue this, because next season would have been a land slide victory for sure. Burn the kingdom to the ground just so Paps can't rightfully rule it, that's what's happening.


lol for real for real congrats Af-1 and everyone else who hung in there it was fun. Wish this could continue. I'm half tempted to take it over myself because I do enjoy it, seems like a lot of work though.

Week after week after week after week, you come out here and you run your mouth "I'm the best", "I'm number 1" so let's settle this right here and right now... Googledocs on a poll match. First to snag this hemp-made sheet can claim to be the undisputed best.

Want me to predict how I'll win, in which minute and the colour of the guy's shirt third seat in the front row? I can do it yo. (haha)

204. "So you let pride turn you into a loser?"
In response to Reply # 202


  

          

Laughable, HA!

Sure, we can sit here all day and listen to that spiel about how you didn't want to watch Crown Jewel so you didn't do your predictions. In actuality all you had to do was take a lucky guess, ya know, kinda what you've always done. You could have still not watched the PPV, just got lucky like the rest of em. But no, you let your pride and your false moral high ground fool you into thinking you were doing the smart thing, and ended up dumber than the rest of em!

Ya see, while you were out here making excuses as to why you didn't do better, I was busy doing the math. Busy doing the math between my time celebrating being the true uncrowned champion. See, even IF you would have participated in Crown Jewel, my other numbers would have put me ahead of you anyway, and if its any indication of how you performed this season, you would have been just another annoying yet easy obstacle for me to get around.

The numbers don't lie Oak27, and they spell disaster for you in predictions.

>That plus JR gives me hope that we'll get a legit product.

I’m lightweight horrified that folks are building expectations that can’t be met with what we actually end up with.

I’m currently trying to settle in on expectations between better than TNA in general and not as good as WCW when it would be good. And trust me, I’d take that! But I hope they’re not thinking too much of anyone they have on the roster. I like their main guys mostly but would we really be krunk about Cody vs Jericho on a reg?

I AM interested in how they’ll throw their money around to lure in free agents and mildly discouraged WWE folks who could use the space. I’d love to see a Rusev or Cesaro thrown into their mix for instance. Even give me a victory lapping AJ Styles or Smo joe. The good brothers are a guarantee and the Revival are a no-brainer that could earn main events with the Bucks of Youth.

In response to Reply # 203


  

          

I'm also not raising my expectations so high to the point that they won't meet them. The good thing is they're not trying to be competition to the WWE, they're just trying to be an alternative. This is good because so many other promotions have failed because they wanted to be a competitor to a giant that can't be stopped. I hope that some people who are casual wrestling fans (the "I only watch WWE" type) will get to witness this and see that there is other wrestling out there and its really fucking good.

Don't get too hung up on JR either. He's kinda past his prime if you ask me and although I absolutely loved him through some eras of wrestling, I've seen his more recent commentary, it's not good. NJPW fans went nuts on the internet until they finally decided to remove him from calling their U.S. shows, it was that bad.

Everyone is so hungry for a US based, legit alternative to WWE and for them to have real competition but it's not going to happen right away.

We live in such an instant hot take era that I'm worried people will bail and call it a failure within 3 months if they aren't stealing big name stars and competing in the ratings.

209. "Enzo and Cass in RoH, the Tongans are not happy"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

This is their shoot interview after Cass and Enzo interfered in the tag match without RoH letting them know it was going to happen.

https://youtu.be/FzRuVH8Ygh4

LOLOLOLOL

I was there live, this wasn't shown on tv, they cut it to make it seem real.

This is a swipe from WON:

Mark Briscoe started swinging wildly with a fan out of the crowd, which turned out to be the former Enzo Amore. Amore was sitting with the former Big Cass, at ringside, surrounded by some planted fans and kept disguised. The idea was to make this look like it wasn’t part of the show. Those at ringside could immediately tell it was planned because security did nothing. Security was alerted ahead of time that an angle was being planned and to let it happen but weren’t told exactly what it is. The punches being thrown were really stiff because they wanted fans at ringside to think it was real. The idea was to fool everyone but as it turned out, while some fans were, most saw through it. They went so far as to keep this a secret from almost everyone. Tonga & Loa, who had just won, were not told, nor was anyone from the New Japan side told. They saw it, looked like they were mildly disgusted by it, didn’t fall for it and just walked away. Multiple sources have confirmed nobody in New Japan was told about it ahead of time. Tonga even tweeted sort of about it, just saying Enzo & Cass jumped the losers of the match not the winner and called it “ROH booking at its finest.” A number of people complained that this angle being booked at this time took away from the impact of the double title change.

The two will use the names nZo and CazXL and their tag team name will be the Free AgentZ. A big brawl ensued, none of which was shown to the streaming/PPV audience with the idea of presenting it like it wasn’t supposed to happen. In addition, they sent Bully Ray out there with the idea that he’s a big tough guy and would be the guy who would handle things for ROH if it was a real fight. Security when it was over got Enzo & Cass out. The key thing is they weren’t handcuffed or kicked out. Cass looked very out of shape, and was blown up with bloodshot eyes. He may have gotten hurt because the punches being thrown were very real because they wanted the ringsiders to believe it was a fight and he got several potatoes from the Briscoes.

In response to Reply # 220


  

          

I believe she's more upset that they didn't get to do much with the titles while they had them. All her title reigns have been extremely short. Sasha and Bayley haven't really been played up to their strengths on the main roster. Look at how amazing their NXT runs have been compared to this.

They're friends with the IIconics, and honestly there was no other team on the woman's roster that deserved to be the next woman's tag champs other than them.

They're not using her properly though, at least not as well as they should. I'm almost starting to think Vince hates wrestling and would rather just have a show full of acting eventually.

Every picture of them hanging out after their match is a happy one. I honestly think they're getting railroaded here. I have a tough time believing that they acted any differently than The Revival, Neville, or any guy wrestler that wasn't pleased with their place in the company and I haven't seen any of those dudes get criticized nearly as much if at all.

They should have kept the name War Machine, but I get it. But the fucking Viking Experience?!?!? Does Vince think no one watches NXT?!?! They're the fucking NXT tag champions, they even renamed the members of the team like people would just forget?

Between this and shortening people's names because they think we are too stupid to remember it is infuriating.

At this point I really wish AEW just comes in strong and kills it. Vince gotta go. Makes me wonder if HHH gets pissed when these guys he brings in and are proud of gets this kind of treatment.

In response to Reply # 223


  

          

I really don't get WWE thinking. Half of the time they act like everyone has the Network and they neglect to develop main roster characters, then they do this...a team that most wrestling fans know from either Ring of Honor, NJPW, or NXT, lets them hold the NXT tag belts a whole week previous, then completely reinvents them for RAW - new name, new individual names, new gimmick. That makes no sense at all.

My guess is that they et the tag belts for a couple of months, then become yet another afterthought tag team on the roster. I guess I should be happy that they didn't give them blonde wigs and horned helmets...SMH.

To so boldly make such "bitch, because I can" moves is an inspiration.

I imagine success at his level can get rather boring. A guy like that has to find ways to entertain himself that us mere mortals can only imagine in our most morally flexible fantasies.

We can only dream of the power and wealth it takes to tell grown men to ditch the very things that have made them successful, in favor of some shit nobody believes is anything but a practical joke....and then they actually do it.

That's a real Murrican right there.

Sure, it makes the terrorists hate us, but that's the sort of boss-tier swag that keeps Putin's dick hard.

and he found a way to make it work. Aw-shucks KO can be a lot of fun; I'm sure there's going to be some good work with him going overboard and Kofi and Xavier checking him, and eventually he'll powerbomb Big E or someone onto the HARDEST PART OF THE RING and go back to his heeldom.

Also I'm surprised they'd take Elias off Raw. His block was a guaranteed 10-15 mins they could count on in a. 3 hr show

Reigns getting the belt is the first thing I thought of when his entrance came...now will they turn him as I predicted a few months ago? We shall see...

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Apparently FOX wanted more Latino presence on SMACKDOWN so Andrade returns, as does Zelina Vega.

Also, the Bar is split (Boooo), Roode dumped Chad (Hooray), and Ricochet and Black are no more (don't know how I feel about that)

In response to Reply # 240


  

          

was that it was too bad that we wouldn't get a full feud with them after seeing their match on Raw. I hope it continues on Smackdown now.

I never saw Bob...uh...Robert Roode on NXT but the whole time that's he's been on Raw I've thought he would be a much better heel.

247. "They should let him be the first to shut down Demon Balor"
In response to Reply # 241
Tue Apr-23-19 02:03 PM by Paps_Smear

  

          

He should have been the one to end the Undertaker, they missed that mark. Not too late with Finn though.

Honestly I'd rather see Finn lose his title to Cien Almes first, then get into a program with Bray where he channels the Demon. They couldn't do it the last time because Bray got sick and they did that silly Sister Abigail nonsense that we should all have forgotten about now.

I'm thinking have him be the one to finally beat Finn in Demon form, then have Finn come out in his normal gear the next night but with no smiles this time, just a depressed look like he's finally been broken. This could continue for awhile. Broken Balor who seems soulless.

But, what the fuck do I know about long term booking that would make sense?

249. "NXT's top story took THREE YEARS"
In response to Reply # 247


  

          

True, injuries played their part, but Gargano and Ciampa built up their tag team from being thrown together for the Dusty, brought down the fucking house with the Revival and AOP, did the turn, AND THEN had the whole Ciampa toying with Gargano thing. And sure, it'll be delayed a year, but they could pick it right back up when Ciampa comes back from his neck injury and everyone would love it.

Raw and Smackdown can't wait three weeks to pay off a story.

251. "Lesnar "retired" from UFC (link)"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

So says Dana White...is he coming back to Vince...if he ever left...


https://sports.yahoo.com/dana-white-brock-lesnar-retired-moving-in-new-direction-with-cormier-012037559.html

Brock Lesnar will not be making his return to the Octagon after all. The former UFC champion has instead elected to retire, according to UFC president Dana White.

“He told me he's done, he's retired,” White told ESPN. “We're going to move in another direction with Cormier."

Lesnar (5-3) was projected to take on Daniel Cormier for the heavyweight title later this summer. However, that will no longer be happening.

Instead, Cormier will likely be involved in a rematch with Stipe Miocic, per White. The two met at UFC 226 in a first-round loss for Miocic.

Following Cormier’s win, Lesnar confronted him in the Octagon. The two exchanged words and a shove for a would-be buildup to a later match.

At the time, Lesnar said, “I’m coming for you mother-!”

Lesnar has not fought in MMA since July of 2016 at UFC 200. Lesnar defeated Mark Hunt, but the decision was later overturned to a no contest due to Lesnar failing two drug tests.

In November, Cormier retained his heavyweight title by way of submission against Derrick Lewis at UFC 230.

It's not even fun watching youtube recaps anymore. That's how bad this show has gotten.
