    Not sure how many of you watched wrestling back in the day but I'm curious to hear what some of your favorite PPVs are (either recent or older).



    I've been enjoying the random PPV on the WWE Network and would love some suggestions.

    The first WCW Halloween Havoc was pretty good from what I remember. Any of the old War Games matches.



    I have some of the more recent Wrestlemania events on dvd. Pulled them out not long ago to watch the Money in the Bank matches. Most of those matches have been good.

    I never got the WCW ppvs back in the day but we had the "black box" when I was younger so we got WWF ppv for a couple years. I remember WM 4 where Hogan nailed Dibiase with the chair for Macho Man to win. Couple good Summerslams...which one was it where Ms. Elizabeth ripped of her skirt to help Hogan and Savage win? Also the one with Zeus and Macho Man against Hogan and Brutus the Barber. The Summerslam where Brett Hart beat Mr. Perfect for IC title. I cant remember the years but I think these were 90-92 or so.

    you guys gonna watch Night of Champions? I feel like there's a lot of stuff that could happen for a mid-tier PPV



    -I could see them taking the big belt of Seth Rollins , but not sure (taking it off him would almost certainly mean transitioning it to Sheamus, which itself would be a way to get Roman Reigns involved without pissing off fans)...But Rollins is awesome and they could keep it on him

    -The US belt would also be a way of keeping heat on Rollins if he loses the big one

    -I'm really not a fan of Ryback, but WWE seems to be behind him. I hope they give the IC to Owens who is awesome

    -Charlotte almost certainly is winning the Divas

    -The mystery partner (rumored but maybe a hoax, to be Baron Corbin



    So we could see some real belt movement, a MITB cash-in, a NXT promotions...lot of stuff in the hopper



    should be fun

    I dont have the network so I wont be watching but will be following twitter close. WWE twitter acct does a good job of getting results and short vids out of things happening at ppv.

    Night of Champions has a solid lineup. I'd like to see my favorite of all time Sting get a win and title reign, maybe a reign to Survivor Series. Just don't want him to win only to turn around and lose to Sheamus on the same night. I like Owens in ring work and would like to see him get the IC belt off Ryback. Cena vs Rollins will be good, they work well together and have put on some good matches.

    I agree, I think if they give to Sting he will get a month with it and lose at next PPV.



    Only way Sheamus wins it Sunday is if Sting was never going to to win, and Sheamus takes it off Rollins after his Cena match.(which will be his second)



    Sting said recently in an interview he is totally cool putting guys over at this stage of his career. Not sure if that's deception or what. But he hinted that he didn't really care if he lost, he's just happy to still be out there

    Once Sheamus is champ ( will happen within 30 days I'd bet), I'll be absolutely shocked if his second feud , after an initial one he will surely win, isnt with Roman Reigns at around royal rumble.



    If they are serious about getting Reigns over big time, sheamus or Cena are the best guys to do it, as there are many who don't like them

    Ryback is the kinda guy that would've had a manager back in the good old days. Actually he should have one now. Let people with good mic skills use the mic.



    Roman Reigns needs one also.



    Much of why Brock Lesnar has Paul Heyman is because he (Lesnar) is not a great speaker in front of large audiences, and is slightly self conscious about his voice not matching his look. (see Mike Tyson)

    Ryback would have been a Bobby Heenan guy. Or maybe Classy Freddie Blassie.

    So Rollins gets beat by Cena but beats Sting (although Sting actually got hurt so that may have changed the planned outcome). Masked Kane comes back and chokeslams Rollins and Sheamus. Jericho was the mystery partner and gets beat but throws some attitude towards Ambrose so this could be a possible upcoming feud. KO beats Ryback. Dont know where any feuds will go. Rollins/Kane? Ambrose/Jericho? Cena and whoever? KO/Cesaro?? Tonight should be interesting.
  • MtlJeffMtlJeff MontrealMembers Posts: 28,708 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭
    I thought it was the worst PPV of the year. Some of it wasn't their fault but it wasn't great.



    Both Charlotte and sting seemed to have legit injuries in their match, which took away from them a bit, though sting got in some good spots early. Charlotte looked to tweak her knee right as the match started.



    Rusev/ziggler was incredibly sloppy. They put on a match at the Montreal house show on Friday that was way better.



    Jericho came back to put over Wyatt's I guess. But as a surprise guy, it was a little anticlimactic. I guess this means this feud might be ending and Jericho might get a small run with maybe Ambrose as a heel?



    The Sheamus cash in thing was brutal, why would Kane not allow sheamus to take Rollins belt if he has an issue with Rollins? It would seem that he'd want him to lose it as payback, but apparently not.

    I agree, outside of the Cena/Rollins match not much else was really impressive. Glad Owens got the IC belt but the way he won could have been booked better. Sad to see the ending to Sting/Rollins, wonder what would have happened if Sting didn't get hurt? Sting can still move pretty good and but on decent matches at his age. Will be interesting to see where they go from here.

    They went for more PPVs during the Attitude Era to capitalize on the cash, now they're top heavy with PPVs and not enough raw talent (pun) to keep all of them interesting without expecting people to have the attention span of a hey a squirrel.

    One of the best guys they have is Dolph. But they bury him in garbage matches in the early or middle matches. He helps put everyone over and sells hard.



    The Dudleys coming back is one of the best things in quite a while.



    Seth Rollns is one of the best guys on the mic. He is fun to watch.

    WWE needs a great heel and he could be one of the best.



    Roman is never gonna win the fans over. He can't sell himself. His mic skills are horrible.

    New Day are pretty fun to watch and know how to,work the crowds.

    At first I couldn't stand them, but now I like when the New Day come out. Very entertaining. "Save.....the tables!Save.....the tables!"



    Dolph must have really ticked someone off in creative. Great in the ring but mostly sub-par story lines.

    Orton is very talented obviously, I just feel like the last 2 years he's been used as a 1-800-dial-an-A-lister. I was hoping Baron Corbin would come out... Or Joe.
