  1. So would folks be content with Reigns winning the belt in the fashion we saw with the confetti pouring down and the show fading to black without the Sheamus cash in? It felt so underwhelming (but acceptable going forward) at that point but then Sheamus came through and yeah.. total apathy. Apathy best sums up my feelings towards the main shows in general, I don't care anymore. Sheamus should have cashed in on Ambrose after a win against Del Rio after some fuckary with Reigns earlier in the show, atleast Reigns big win doesn't best replicate a giant turd in that manner.
  2. Artificial heat drawn from a crowd full of smarks that are clearly angry that someone who completely fucking sucks at all aspects of wrestling is being shoehorned into a place on the card unworthy of someone of her stature and ability in the game. Niners Eva advocate gimmick trolling sucks aswell, please stop.
  3. Eh Finn Balor looks like a normal athletic dude, like seriously he may even be smaller than little Guido, I am concerned when he makes it to the main roster Vince and his peers may consider him too small to be anywhere near the top of the card. But perception is reality sometimes, I've never seen him wrestle live personally.
  4. Owens should win the Tournament, transitional or not, could easily step into Rollins position whilst having Reigns chase.
  5. Brock podcast just didn't work, like Sabu's podcast with Jericho it really lacked any sort of substance and Austin cut Brock off way too much mid-sentence, the network platform is way too overproduced in comparison to Austin's podcastone shows. I felt Brock was getting more and more withdrawn and distanced with his answers as the interview rolled along which led me to believe there would be some seeds planted for Austin/Brock at Mania but it never happened, underwhelmed but it is what it is.
  6. If you look at the layout of the match, it was your typical ''big man'' formula, she was sold as a dominating figure with Evie working from beneath, depending on how you define a ''beast'' is subjective but whatever. And yes, the attire was unflattering, however you want to spin it, it's not misogynistic to say something sucks.
  7. Well after weeks of vignettes you would expect the presentation of her character to be better than what was showcased and for what was produced, she was sold as a wrestler that should be wrestling as a ''beast'', I dug the bear hug and her finisher looked impactful but the unflattering attire seems to have overshadowed what was a passable debut match yet underwhelming given the hype.
  8. Roman Reigns died on his arse tonight, please stop making him narrate his feuds, he isn't cut out for it, some people just don't read well from a script but to his credit did come into his own when he broke it. Poor guy. I'm solely watching Raw for a dose of Sasha these days and she didn't wrestle again.. glad she got the spotlight atleast with the video package, she is so far above any woman on the roster in terms of popularity it's insane. Lot's of New Day which is great, but the show is really boring right now.
  9. Trips has insinuated numerous times that he can't be held responsible for the main shows and ultimately the decisions are in Vince's hands, I doubt if he was in a position of creativity he would out right shit on things on Austin's podcast and in other interviews he's done. On Trips' being conniving, the Punk feud from a few years ago where he squashed all Punk's heat then went back into retirement was one the most counter-productive things I've ever seen. That being said if NXT didn't exist I probably wouldn't watch WWE outside of Mania season, so whatever, this is pro wrestling and it's full of dickheads, who cares really.
  10. ''End Scene'' was totally apropo from Graves on commentary after Eva's match. Eva continues to look like she's playing a wrestler, that being said she's slightly improving, like, she totally pissed off everybody in the building when she forgot to kick out during the final stretch, but her taunting in between the sticks is getting better. She's still nowhere near ready to be in a match on television, yet I have this bizarre fascination with her challenging Bayley one day so I'm willing to give her time to progress. Echo the sentiments on Jordan/Gable being fucking awesome and having such organic chemistry with each other, Jordan gets some mean height on those belly to bellys.
  11. Sting also referred to the coveted WWE World Heavyweight Championship™ as the ''WWE title'' too. It's telling how constrained this company is when we notice this redundant shit.
  12. Meltzer's star rating system used to be a good point of reference for checking out matches back when I was a teenager, nowadays, not so much. Sasha/Bayley is 5 fucking stars.
  13. Owens has certainly earned his pay this past few days.
  14. Ehh, I think he could definitely break the mold of the tough enough winners jinx of previous years. Josh's upside is astronomical, great looking, built, naturally athletic and a legitimate professional sports background, also appears to be a genuine hard worker, all of the components that gives Vince friction in his slacks. Saying that, they absolutely tried to sabotage the vote with the before and after pictures prior to the guys matches, along with the critiquing being way in favor of Josh post-match. Amanda should get a contract, Trips' looked so pissed raising Sara's hand at the end there.
  15. I can't wait for Steve Austin to shit on the springboard stunner on Tuesday morning. Totally ineffective and poor in execution, which could be said for the majority of Cena's moveset for years now. There is no stock left in the AA, everyone in the building expects a kick out even it's from a JTTS. I'm definitely over Cena's structure of a match in 2015, Cena's strikes have always been lacklustre but his ability to sell between the sticks has made up for his drawbacks, but even that was the shits last night. If you can't work because of your nose being in recovery and refuse a mask, don't sacrifice key components of the damn match. Seth looked like a goof not attacking the face from the offset. After meditating on it since last night, I think that annoyed me more than the finish.
  16. Corbin is progressively getting better each time he wrestles these big shows, doesn't look out of place with someone like Joe or Rhyno and lays all his shit in well and now has the character arc to back up what he does in the ring, nothing wrong with enjoying what he's doing right now.
  17. I think Tanner has potential and is very much a natural in any scenario they've put him in so far, but lacks a certain rawness that ZZ does in terms of his charisma and personality, as the judges pointed out he can do things he's showed how to do very well but I don't see him being a star like the other two guys based off of what I've seen. Who knows in the long run, but the stock is totally in ZZ and Josh right now. I think all three guys will be signed regardless.
  18. Paige is repulsive and I don't think she understands that to be a judge she has to be somewhat impartial and understand each contestants pros and flaws, to come out with comments like Amanda ''sucks'' when she blatently doesn't is unfair. Whether it be an unconscious strategy or not, Amanda is playing the best heel character on the show and it suggests she does have some potential upside down the road. I used to dig Paige, but she comes off annoying and dumb here.
  19. This show is trash, the concept is flawed, all the judges are totally transparent in their opinions. That being said, Patrick going home is a shocker and was the one dude I'd like to have won.
  20. The brawl was a lot of fun and fulfilled it's purpose in fast tracking the Taker/Lesnar match but we still don't know why Taker is going after Brock other than avenging his streak loss, I could understand Taker's revenge being motivated by some dirty tactics by Brock in the initial match but Brock won clean as a sheet, sure Heyman and Brock gloated about the victory but as Heyman articulated in his promo, why wouldn't they? Taker looks like a whiney asshole with the decision making ability of a toddler and I want Brock to beat his ass. The brawl was great, but I'm not forgiving the shitty writing. Oh and Cena now being shot towards the WWE title picture couldn't be more of a desperation attempt by Vince in order to gain subs and sell Summerslam as something extra special this year, the stench around WWE in the summertime is irreparable and bringing back legends and boosting Cena to the top of the card is totally papering over the cracks of a problem WWE has caused since like, 2005.
  21. I really want Reigns to take the U.S title. Reigns/Cena must be the only dream match remaining with the full time roster guys and now I'm depressed that it's not going to happen anytime soon, the crowd reaction alone would be so intriguing and really, besides Brock, who else could you have dethrone Cena at this point? I don't buy Zayn doing it, Zayn can work underneath better than anyone in the world but It just wont work for me. Reigns/Cena is where you go down the line and given the credibility Cena has brought to the belt, the only guy to continue that upward momentum is a guy like Reigns.
