  1. Glad the Battle Royal is on the pre show, total jobber status this year and yeah most Battle Royals are so boring and plodding. I haven't enjoyed one since the vintage Battle Royal from 17 (I wouldn't have a problem bringing this back). Although it leaves the card pretty stacked with a no real downtime match bar the divas :/
  2. I still think the match will suck and Reigns shouldn't be in the position he's in so Brock signing doesn't really budge me into anticipation for what will be a shitty match, however the winner must be up in the air completely now.
  3. Trips alluded to Bryan actually wanting to reel back on being pushed too hard and ''working the work of the reality''. Like, seriously I think that's just a bullshit excuse for the inexcusable booking of Bryan since his comeback (and for years before that). At least have the commentators acknowledge that Bryan has looked rusty, isn't carrying the momentum he had when he dropped the title a year ago, maybe even a little self cynicism has crept in from the debilitating injury. You know, play on it. But nope, he's in a spot where nothing really matters. Bryan will probably win the title on Sunday, despite being pushed as the equal of Stardust, a transparent consolation prize.
  4. I can understand the ending but not necessarily agree with it selling a show like WrestleMania. It should have been like the Brock/Cena contract signing before Extreme Rules where Cena's mouth was hanging off. We should have saw headbutts and chaos, agents flying in trying to separate them, yet being shit scared of being pulled into the melee. Hell I guess I just wanted to see Arn Anderson. Like the Raw previous to the Rumble ends in like 100 dudes fighting it out in the ring. The end segment was done for the video package aesthetic. But fuck that.
  5. Best part of the end seg was Heyman telling the story of Reigns kicking in Lesnar's front door and renaming his kids ''Reigns'', it was wild and Brock looked to react like I did in thinking it was stupid as shit then he flipped it on it's head and Lesnar muttered ''so that's where you were going with that''.. But yeah I'm not clamoring to see the main event after that. It's Vince's match, It always has been. Reigns wins clean in the most artificial of ways possible - I think the ones throwing together possible scenarios are going to be left flat and deflated, let it go, guys. Can Bill Simmons call Raw every week?
  6. I don't think he will lose. I mean, they've been playing up Cena as being this past his peak old man (even though he's like 37 and in his prime) and he's been mercilessly tossed around by Brock for months on end, I think a loss here and then a break will do his character the world of good, the redemption story writes itself, I wouldn't be mad at Cena taking the belt off of a ruling Rusev down the road, plus it keeps Rusev's momentum going and he can either beat a face Lesnar or dethrone Reigns. I love Rusev and it appears Vince does too. But yeah Cena will win and whatever
  7. I think Reigns should definitely add something new at Mania, whether it be a new ring entrance, new gear or something that steers him away from the stigma of the Shield and yeah, having Reigns walk through the crowd face to face with thousands of drunk smart asses isn't the best of ideas. Looking forward to the show now despite my complete apathy towards almost everything. Also NXT will be showcased in the Battle Royal according to my Twitter timeline.
  8. Cody has a LONG way to go, I respect Scott for wanting an old school touring of the continents education for Cody rather than giving him straight up to NXT. Corbin on the other hand has a crazy presence on NXT and massive potential, one of my favorites to watch currently. oh and this -
  9. I don't really give a shit about any of the matches. That being said I will watch it, it's like watching the Superbowl or the champions league final. It's a spectacle and I'll be getting drunk as hell.
  10. Thought he was still signed but in Justin Gabriel/Evan Bourne status of sitting on his arse at home waiting for his contract to run down? If true it's good news, I miss Bischoff Jr.
  11. What in the fuck was that ending? Why isn't their more discussion on this? Is the apathy so strong that people simply don't care anymore.. it was totally bizarre, strangest thing I've seen since the anal bleeding call on Raw. Does Vince have a fascination with peoples assholes?
  12. Nothing like my habits back in the mid 00's that's for sure, I would download hundreds of hours worth of wrestling every week. I'll watch Raw, NXT, all the pay per views and pick and choose anything else when I'm bored (I much prefer gaming whilst catching up on the latest podcasts I follow) That being said I've been slowly working my way through Smackdown 2002 at the rate of an episode a week which has been fun. You do sort of outgrow the habits of watching every single thing out there, but never fully.
  13. C'mon, man. Can you at least qualify that with "in WWE history." There are like six guys in All Japan back in the day that are in a different stratosphere than John Cena. From a WWE perspective of course, I should have been more specific. I can't think of a wrestler (from the modern era, anyway) that has consistently had so many great matches on top of the card.
  14. Cena is the best big match wrestler of all time. I can't believe the fact he took a Piledriver or two, or that he's earned someones respect through longevity alone (and thus ignoring the countless classic matches he's had) sways someones opinion in 2015. This is DVDVR, not wrestlingforum.
  15. I've seen big Dave wrestle live this year and I was so impressed, seemed to have an aura about him that you can't teach. Cole/Mastiff is a match everyone should try and seek out to see how agile and intelligent of a wrestler he's becoming, hell I'd put that match ahead of anything Rollins has done from a singles perspective in the past year. The Bastard wins this one for me.
  16. To be fair to the guy he hasn't really had a fair crack of the whip. He was brought in as this prestigious Heyman guy but he really wasn't was he? He was a hurdle for Punk to jump over and to hand out beatings to for months on end until Punk inevitably got his hands on Heyman. Any redeeming qualities Axel had left from his re-debut onwards evaporated and pretty much killed him. Hell, Axel has had it way worse than 90% of the guys we all moan about, fair play to him for running with something that's working and getting over, I have no doubt it's probably his idea, too.
  17. #sayyesmadonna #sayyesdvdvr Grado is the closest thing to Big Daddy the UK has produced in two decades. TNA were bananas not to piggy back off of the exposure he garnered through the #sayyesMadonna campaign, but.. TNA. That being said I can't see his gimmick getting over with the North American audience, regardless of his recent bookings. But from a UK perspective he's been a revelation.
  18. Oh yeah I agree with you. I would argue against the Rollins/Orton feud being a ''nothing'' feud, though. The booking since Orton's comeback (bar Fastlane) has been totally overly complicated bullshit. Orton should have been all guns blazing last Monday, my interest is waning. But in the eyes of the casual, Orton's inevitable turn will be pretty huge.
  19. I got my haircut at the barbershop today by this pretty cute girl and we were exchanging the usual media influenced bullshit small talk topics and then we got onto the topic of my hair, my hair was pretty long as a teenager due to wanting to be Shawn Michaels, well I brought that up not thinking she would know he is or anything. Well turns out this chick is a massive wrestling fan, but wasn't satisfied with the current storylines and the treatment of Cena (she also hates Daniel Bryan, because of his hair) but she was stoked that Randy was back and couldn't wait for him to put Rollins in his place at 'Mania. So yeah, Orton/Rollins isn't a nothing feud, it's actually been built for months and in the eye of the casual it's maybe a big deal?
