People do like moaning.

 

Depends who's doing the moaning.

So am I correct or incorrect that this was Paige's night. 2 hours waiting for segment, Enternce, Commerical brake, Sting prono package, Bella Twins enternce, One minute match, Two minutes watching Bella's leaving.

Having Daniel Bryan co-sign Reigns really goes to show you how much WWE sees or at least acknowledges how over Bryan is.

I also dug the subtle Triple H acting job tonight. He was so disinterested and silent. Sting is fucking with him and can't focus on anything else.

And yeah, Heyman was heeling it guys. No one believes that, that's why he said it.

 

 

If nobody believes it, then what's the point? What is it accomplishing? Who is it helping?

 

 

YOU ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO BELIEVE IT! THAT IS THE POINT OF A HEEL LYING TO YOUR FACE! AHHHHHH!!!!

 

 

Okay.

 

Sooo.. again, who is it helping? Did this promo "make Roman look strong"? Did it get him anymore support from the crowd? Did it make you more eager to see the match? What exactly did this promo accomplish for you?

Paul Heyman is being obnoxious to Roman Reigns. I want to see Roman beat the hell out of Brock Lesnar to shove it in Heyman's face. That's the effect.

This isn't calculus.

Yikes! Who did Emma piss off? I've seen a lot of hasty, thrown together Diva segments but that had to be one of the worst. #Givedivasachance indeed!

I read that as Sting porno.

 

But yeah, I feel sorry for the Sasha Banks' of the world having to endure that every week.

I'm not surprised you ate it up, but it didn't work for me, and certainly not for the live crowd, who booed at the mere thought of Reigns being mentioned with Austin and Rock.

 

You seem like you what a god heel promo is supposed to accomplish, but can't seem to grasp that this one certainly wasn't effective.

OK, let's spin it like this--

 

Heyman is giving Roman all sort of platitudes that no one believes--not even Roman himself.  RR is no dummy.  He thinks he's good, but not on that Austin-Rock level yet.  But he wants to be there.  So what if Heyman is delivering his promo in code to Roman:  You've got a lot going for you.  But not everything.  You don't have me.  Let me be the final piece of your puzzle to superstardom.  You want to get over with these smarks and schmucks?  Let me help you with that. As for Brock?  Let's just say, arrangements can be made where he won't be a problem for you.

 

Ba-da-boom, Heyman sells out Lesnar, Reigns wins, heel turn on March 30, Roman Empire begins in earnest with Heyman as chief counsel.

 

Not that I have any clue if this will happen--but it's a possibility.  Because the promo was set up as a Choose Your Adventure story. Take it however you want.  Maybe it means nothing.  Maybe Roman starts believing the hype.  Maybe Heyman is underestimating Roman.  It can go in almost any direction.  Take it as you will.

 

Or don't take it all. It's fine if someone doesn't like the promo.   That happens to all of us.  We won't like everything. But to examine it like it's a key piece of evidence in an investigation is a bit much.

This is true. Calculus makes sense.

It accomplished getting Roman his first ever what chants.

Didn't Heyman say the same exact thing in the sit-down in the snowed out episode of Raw?

Also, is the crowd booing the thought that Reigns is better than Austin? Or are they booing at Heyman's obviously transparent lie?

Bikertaker would have chokeslammed Heyman before he got two words into that.  It's so goddamn simple.  Calculus?  Man, this is basic algebra.

 

 

Heel manager + immediate asskicking

_________________________________        =   $$$$$$$

Enraged Brock Lesnar

 

 

That's algebra, right?  With X's and stuff?

Pretty clearly the 1st, or else they'd boo every comment for every wrestler that way and not just the particular ones.

So many reaction GIF's I would love to post in response to this, but I'm not "that guy", so I'll just ask - are you serious?

Poor Wade is going to have to get his title fumigated when he gets it back, that's if, Ambrose doesn't pawn it off to pay off a drug debt or something.

Roman came across great tonight I thought. Very natural. The past week has really opened my eyes to what they see in RR. I didn't skip a lot of this RAW, so that's a change. Rusev looked like Cena's equal and that's amazing. The only match I'm not looking forward to at Mania is Sting vs Triple H (although Sting not talking is the best thing to happen to him since...his match with DDP on Nitro in 1999).

I went to the movies and got back to watch the last fifteen minutes of Raw, saw the Rollins/Orton-Bryan/Reigns match and thought "This ending's gonna be so fun"!  I ran the gamut of where it was going
-Orton's gonna turn on Rollins.  It's the most obvious, but it's the best!

-No, wait, the Authority's gonna interfere, beat down Reigns and Bryan, then Sheamus' music hits, but Sheamus attacks Bryan and sets up a WM match!  That'll be such a good turn!

-No, Bryan's gonna turn on Reigns and join the Authority!

-No, Reigns is gonna turn and join the Authority!

-Lesnar's gonna come up and beat up Reigns, leaving Bryan and Sheamus to battle the Authority!

-Oh, Rollins just tagged himself in, he's gonna get RKOed

-Oh, no, I guess not.

-Oh, Bryan just tagged imself in, Daniel Bryan heel turn! No Reigns heel turn!

-Oh, no, just over.

-Orton's gonna take everyone out!

-No, he's leaving politely....I bet he comes back!

-Oh, no.  But they're cutting to the announce team, obviously something big's going to happen!

-Cut back to the Authority, here it comes!

 

But, nothing happened.  Literally nothing.  I get the slow burn, but after a PPV with a largely disappointed audience, don't you have to do something?!?!?!

On a non Reigns note, Big Show needs to retire ASAP and become a manager. His ad-libbing tonight was great. GET BACK IN THE RING YOU CHEATER.

Heyman's promo killed the board for 2+ hours.

Does that mean it was good or bad?

i am genuinely impressed how much terrible logic people can find in the most self-defeating wrestling booking I may have ever seen. Everyone on this roster continues to be misused, over and over and continue to look worse and worse every week.
