    Word is jericho is done for 2015. His band fozzy is apparently touring through Q4 so he's not available till 2016.



    Probably will feud with Ambrose eventually though, you would think

    Weird to bring him back for one night then go back on tour. Makes him being the mystery partner a mystery.

    yeah i agree. Maybe the info is wrong but that's what i read, that Fozzy is touring Europe or something so he has no booked appearances.



    Doesn't mean they can't sneak him in for 1-2 raw appearances to set something up



    I mean the WWE can afford to private jet him in or something should they really want

    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.




    Ziggler was Red Hot at Survivor Series. So what do they do stick the IC Title on Him. Have Him last a few mintues in The Rumble and a nothing match at Wrestlemania.

    Paige's pipebomb-esque promo was awesome...have no idea why they brought Jericho back for one thing although from what I have been reading he has worked quite a few live events. I have read this is the deal he wants. I dont think he wants storylines or showing up on Raw/SD/PPV. Im wondering how long this wyatt/reigns/ambrose angle is going to last. Im also ready for Rollins to drop the title, make his face turn, and work his way back up. Not sure who I wanna see as WHC...not Sheamus or Kane but maybe Owens, Ceasaro, Reigns, or Ambrose would work for me.
  • MtlJeffMtlJeff MontrealMembers Posts: 28,370 ✭✭
    I'm convinced Reigns is winning the title off sheamus in early 2016, most likely at Royal rumble.

    So when does Sheamus cash in?? HIAC or SVS?? Im kinda thinking HIAC since it will be a match against kane in a cell (at least thats what Im thinking). Gonna be all beat up from the cell then the cash in.

    Has to be or he's not winning it, I don't see sheamus with the title during the wrestlemania home stretch. But you never know, maybe if they have the Rock on the card plus a Rollins/HHH match...they might think say Sheamus/Reigns is a good enough title match

    Sheamus cashes in. Becomes the new face of the Authority. Rollins turns face.

    It's too bad Paige goes for rail skinny rock band types; she don't know what she's missing from this fat drunk logger.





    Joe would be perfect in a *fight* with the Wyatts....problem is WWE would have to acknowledge his legitimacy outside of WWE and they don't like to admit guys can get over outside their little world....so they'll keep him buried until they come up with a lame a** gimmick and continue to push home grown half wit talent.

    One more title run for demon Kane before retirement?



    Kinda cool!





    He'd make a good one to take down Braun Strohman or whatevs his name is.

    Wade Barrett made his return tonight, and they kinda played him as a face a bit, as a guest announcer he was praising Neville before inadvertantly costing him the match. But still, definitely seemed like they were modifying his character a bit



    One of my good friends who's a huge wrestling buff, is a massive Barrett fan and thinks he's currently the most poorly utilized guy in the company. Barrett is great in the ring and has good mic skills....he's been buried since winning KOTR.



    Wonder what they do with him

    They treat Barrett about the same as Cesaro. Both are good in the ring. Barrett is better with the mic...but both get a small push and then buried. I read yesterday that it looks like Cesaro's push is already over.

    Im not a big Barrett fan. Just something about him I dont like. I watched him briefly during the whole Nexus thing and havent really liked him since I started back watching. I do think hes decent in ring and decent mic skills. I havent seen Cesaro since he got beat by big show last week or week before. He was getting good crowd reactions and put on a couple good matches. I know he wasnt the best on the mic but he seemed like someone the fans were getting behind.



    I say him and Ambrose are the most wasted talent. Although wwe could be just burning Ambrose for now to turn him heel and fued with Roman. Who knows?!

    I think the Nexus angle was when Barrett was at his best.



    Ambrose needs a run with the IC Title or US title.

    Anybody else catch the crowd yelling "Boring Boring" when Reigns was on the mic last night? If this keeps up I dont think they put the belt on him at WM.

    It got pretty loud. I didn't hear it, but reports said the "CM Punk" chants got going as well.

    For the most part Reigns is fairly over. He gets pretty loud cheers everywhere except notorious "smart fan" cities, and I use that term loosely because most people booing him I think don't even know why they are booing him. A true smart fan would acknowledge he's done a great job since WM31. His feud with Wyatt has been one of the best things, if not the best thing going since then in my opinion. It has seen new characters, affected MITB, the return of Jericho, a teased Ambrose turn.... There's been a lot of drama

    Problem is they are very invested in Reigns as a 100% face. Notice during the breast cancer awareness segments, he and Cena are the only guys in the ring. Reigns is a good guy for life. In the end it's a public company and they need guys to do make-a-wish and stuff. It's pretty clear Roman is the guy they see replacing Cena



    I'm OK with it. I like Reigns. I appreciate that it's a business and they need guys in that role.



    I was talking with a friend today too, Reigns is a little awkward on the mic. They could make him "edgier" and a bit more of a bada**....but they won't. They need kids to buy the Reigns gear. At the end of the day Cena merchandise sells like 5x more then anything else and smart fans boo the crap out of him....that's Reigns destiny for better or worse

    To me and I will admit, I was a long time wrestling fan but haven't really watched it since Stone Cold started playing the ukulele and singing to Vince, but Reigns should not be a face. He has the perfect look to be such a bad a**. A " don't care who you are, I am just going to beat you to a pulp" type of persona. A blend between Goldberg, Stone Cold, and add a little Undertaker. You can't tell me shirts won't sell if the crowd buys into his character.



    Again, I just recently started watching a few shows for old times sake. So if this has already been done, I apologize .

    The Shield started out major bad guys. Reigns, Ambrose, Rollins.



    Of the three the only one really IMHO able to pull of being a good guy is Ambrose, and it's more in a Stone Cold Roddy Piper Ric Flair kind of good guy way--still a bad guy at heart. The other two are much better as bad guys. Granted, we haven't seen Rollins as a good guy yet, and here's to hoping we don't.

    Rollins and Kevin Owens are very similar, it almost doesn't matter whether they are good or bad sometimes. They put on such a great performance that fans cheer them even if they are "bad". Neither guy really gets boo'd anymore, they get cheered when they come in, and only bood when they are " supposed to get boo'd...the crowd does it basically as a courtesy to their characters

    you guys watch NXT tonight? They had Apollo Crews win the battle royal for #1 contender



    That's a super fast-track for this guy. He looks awesome though. I never saw him as Uhaa Nation. But he's a big guy who looks like a pure baby-face , and he can do some serious aerial stuff. As long as the ummm, rumored prejudices, aren't true, he should be a star in WWE one day

    NXT alone makes me want to get the network. I like some of the guys they have down there. I catch what I can on twitter but wish I could see the whole show. Smackdown came here last October which was right before I started watching it again. Neville and Tyler Breeze were at the show. And this was before Neville's big intro to the main roster. I like the Vaudevillians and think they could be a good add to the main roster tag team division.

    Thats another thing I was thinking about. i have a bunch of the old SVS, Summerslams, and WMs on vhs at my parents. It got me thinking about the WM 4 ending. Hogan hits Dibiase with a chair while the ref is turned for Savage to win the title. Dont see finishes like that anymore. Could you see Cena hitting Rollins with a chair so Reigns can win? I dont!!
