I'd bet my left nut that it was always WWE's intention for him to "no show". That being said good promo Roman it only took you 5 years, also I still don't give a fuck Roman Coronation part 93.

I get that it fits into our Main Event Promo Time, but it's a bit lame to replay a video from the start of the show at the end. WHAT IS THIS, A WWE SHOW?!?!





Oh, I love legitimate theatre.

I'm sorry, but when you've had this



...you don't put up with Elias gimmick. And when you have Crossfit Jesus, Smiling Irish Man, and even ReBOOOOOOO, Elias seems ridiculously out of place.

Could improve it some with Elias going full-slappy with a few weeks worth of Jarrett-esque guitar smashings. Hitting people with guitars (not those poorly disguised hardened-foam ones from WCW though) for a while usually makes things in Our Sport somewhat better.

It looks like they're going to do Miz/Rollins/Balor for WM but I think they should add Elias and Brawn (and maybe Crews for another body) and make it a Ladder Match. I figure they don't want to take away the main gimmick from one of the next PPVs but this could be good to cover for Miz if he's not there (instead of a singles/triple threat without the title holder.....the ladder stipulation could cover for that) and it would add more dudes on an already long night. I figure they'll do (from the Raw side):

Lesnar/Rollins
Bliss/Asuka
Rousey/Steph?
Hardy/Bray or Hardy & Bray versus someone. (barf)
The Bar versus Hardy & Bray (barf) or Anderson/Gallows and The Revival in a tornado match? or someone else?
Bayley/Banks

That's already 6 matches on their side plus the IC match plus whatever with Brawn and Elias (whether together or separate) plus Cena/UT. There were only 10 matches last year on the main card.

Hey, Shane got 'em fixed. Or at least he did a few years ago so maybe he crashed then out again while passing out. He's 60 and I have no idea how.

Caught the Reigns promo and while I think that's probably some of his best work on the mic there's a part of me that wonders if pulling Brock (I'm assuming he didn't just no show) and letting Reigns loose like that is such a good idea.

I'm thinking it's somewhat common knowledge that Lesnar is likely done come WM; and the once upon a time novelty of the Beast seems to be wearing thin based on a lot of board comments... and getting pics with UFC's Dana White while a WWE PPV was going on is a pretty big slap in the face (even if it doesn't correspond hour by hour to the PPV; the weekend is a still a dick move)... kind of feels like a recipe for Brock getting booed like he was back at WM XX...

I will say that the Reigns promo from tonight helped sell their match, and I'm sure he'll do everything he can to bust his ass out there to make the match great... but look at last nights comments... one promo and a bit of truth probably isn't going to stop Reigns from getting booed when his hand is lifted at the end of the night.

It's like Reigns scored a few points tonight, but is still a negative with a lot of fans; and all tonight did was bring Lesnar down more than it helped Reigns.

Of course with all things in wrestling; it will come down to how they follow tonight up.

Was it my imagination, or was that sneaky Cena trying to gauge our interest in a Wrestlemania matchup between himself and Taker? The mindless marks in the live audience not being considered, the answer is "NO" John!

So he pointed out his failures at the Rumble and at Elimination Chamber. What's next, a third failure at Wrestlemania against a twice beaten Taker? Where in the fuck would that leave his wrestling career? Two options, straight to retirement or a heel turn. Who thinks a heel turn is around the corner? I don't. Looking forward to you wasting our time on Smackdown John!

I still think there's a lot of fun things he could do. Chasing the IC Title to get the Grand Slam, real run in the tag team division with an oddball partner(Rusev would be guaranteed gold), chasing and obessing over a newer star who has his number,

Targeting Taker almost seems kind of heelish. New guys keep kicking my ass, fuck it I'll go after an over the hill legend to get an easy win at Wrestlemania.

Not if Taker ends up challenging Cena. Remember, he said the company told him the match wouldn't happen. He also back when going against Reigns called Taker "an old man with a broken hip". So, after Cena fails at Fastlane, He comes back to Raw where Taker challenges him to prove to Cena that he can still go. This is where I believe they are going with this. There is no way they tease Cena-Taker that blatantly and not actuallly have the match.

Taker wins at Mania and gets a real send off into retirement.

So, you let Taker leave on a high to wrap up his career, but you flush Cena down the toilet? Again, per my last post, where does that leave Cena (the franchise for the last 15 years plus)? A guy who will have failed for the third time according to his standards.

Cena's issue right now is just getting a match at Wrestlemania. That will be accomplished by getting challenged by Taker. I'm not flushing Cena down the toilet, especially if they can have a good match.

Honestly, a Taker win makes the most sense. Cena is after glory so finally getting his dream match but coming up short isn't a big deal. Compare that to Taker who'd be coming back just to be a whiny asshole's consolation prize.

Taker would also be coming back to show Cena that he isn't a "old man with a bad hip".

Except he is, which is why he shouldn't come back.

Now that I caught up with the whole show, are there any thoughts on the fact that Mickie was randomly turned heel?
