  1. Arn promo was the best. Lambert makes me laugh. Sammy/Miro was incredible. Jungle Boy really does need a big win, though. Always the bridesmaid. Feeling like the "physically block the ref from seeing me cheat" spot has been leaned on a bit too heavily lately.
  2. Oh he'd been working on that one all week
  3. Marked out hard for a real American Dragon promo. Could care less if the segment was too long or whatever. Awesome staredown.
  4. I know that Asuka has been kinda diluted for a while, but has Rhea been this lame for a bit? She seemed a bit more threatening even in the Rumble and this was so corny and put on and disingenuous. Hadn't seen her promos in a minute, though.
  5. Wouldn't be shocked if Wyatt's hammer was the old Bludgeon Brothers hammer all taped up.
  6. I don't think there's any way he doesn't get the title very soon. But then
  7. Whoa that was bad. I don't think they're burying The Fiend so much as going with the classic horror movie trope of "you have defeated the monster...but now YOU are the monster!" Seth is supposed to be Dennis Hopper in TCM2. Only they won't pull it off and it will be shit. HHH surely whipped some ass in the Cell with a sledgehammer and never got DQ'd, no? The only thing that could have made this work is if they'd just gone all out and done it at a Halloween Havic.
  8. I remember being excited when they went to PG because it meant we wouldn't get anymore angles where, I dunno, a pregnant woman wins a title and then loses it to a guy in some gross sex gag.
  9. I think it would be absolutely ridiculous for Rollins to not have a SS rematch, but that's just me. I figure Brock holds on til Mania. Wondering if JuggaBray is going to go over on the Demon. Still enjoy the 24/7 stuff. As I remember it, they did everything they could to make Orton The Guy - that was the entire set-up of Evolution - but he was eventually outshone by Cena and flatlined into mediocrity. Which was always fine by me.
  10. I said all of five words about Roman - and not sure I've posted about him otherwise in months - and got jumped on by you for being insincere about why I don't like the guy. Then I clarified. So anyway, know you are but what am I, I guess. I wasn't really commenting on any individual "hate" for Rollins, but just noting, like others, that this place has been abnormally anti-Rollins for a while. I think what he's doing at the moment is really working for him, and Smackdown really confirmed that for me just now. Am still hating that I finally like everybody with the top beltsbut other than Alexa, they're all stuck with such garbage contenders.
  11. I don't care about "booking" or whatever, I just don't like Roman Reigns and want him off my TV. I'd never not admit to this, and I really don't care about the motives behind booking or whatever. I think he's a shitty character that I don't like on this TV show I've been watching on and off for like 25 years. I fast forward the guy and don't give him a chance after getting bored with him for a few years. Not everything is some Internet wrestling argument, I just got really sick of the guy and think his whole schtick is corny and wish Big Dog Sportswear would pull a World Wildlife Fund and get his hideous merch banned. Kofi is booked strong, and I'm loving the run, but it's still "wily veteran underdog feel good" story. That's great, butI want at least one babyface that I enjoy watching to dominate people and still come out on top. As Craig mentioned in that first post, Strowman was perfect for this. But the Rollins hate here has always been pretty bizarro - I think it started around the time HHH/Steph sabotaged his overly-long title run - and I like the guy enough to enjoy him in this role. Also I'm currently watching SD and it was really hard to keep admitting to myself that I'm enjoying the Kofi run after that Dolph promo that was on while I was typing, but it's still great.
  12. Liked this show, and honestly don't mind somebody, anybody other than Roman being booked as a strong top face. I just hope Sunday ends with Seth setting up a trebuchet outside of the ring and launching Corbin deep into the sun. The Kofi run has so freshened up New Day. Dig where they might be going with the Bullet Club stuff. Bryan was great here, too. What Elvion said about this show being surprisingly competent, if not necessarily good, was spot on. Especially after that trash they rolled out last week.
  13. First good Bray seg in a while (seeing a lot of that T&E clip) and I take back anything bad I ever said about the 24/7 title. Truth has legit turned it into the best part of the show. The Cesaro bit was funny for all the right reasons, which is so rare in WWE. I also very much enjoy Ricochet/Cesaro and think it was genius to put them together. Roman/Shane is fast forward stuff, and the MitB thing is better than it could be but still not that great, but yeah, this was a fun show. Kudos to Renee for the Bucky's shout out.
  14. I was totally fine with a big dumb plot, just not one that overshadowed the monsters. I did want it to be a little weirder, and less screen time for humans. I loved that mark out moment you mentioned, and there was a really great Mothra moment I adored, but I just never felt like they'd let me get immersed in the monster fights without cutting to the people. I did like Watanabe and that character, for sure.
