Rasslin' 2.0

Postby davell » Sat Jan 23, 2016 5:28 am

Rumble on Sunday. Favorite PPV of the year for me. Please God, don't let Reigns win from the 1st spot.

I'm pulling for the title to go anywhere but Roman/HHH myself.....

Kind of cool Austin Aries is in NXT now. I think their touring roster is awfully horsefeathering good at this point. I hope they get a network deal in 2016.

What do you mean network deal?

My rumble predictions:

HHH wins
Wyatt Family screws over Brock, Bray vs. Brock at Mania
Taker is a surprise entrant, gets shadily eliminated by his future Mania opponent (Kevin Owens? Kane?)
Becky and Charlotte finally have a divas championship match that the crowd is super into, and steals the show.

Any surprise entrant predictions? I'll say Daniel Bryan, HHH(winner), Jake the snake, with Samoa Joe and Sami Zayn from NXT.

I've almost fully convinced myself Bryan is returning.

Also, I don't believe this theory, but it's well done and I appreciate that it exists: https://www.reddit.com/r/SquaredCircle/ ... s_cm_punk/

I think Reigns joins Vince at this point.

This isn't what I wanted, but a pretty great overall Rumble. Wyatts/Lesnar looks set, I'm OK with that. Reigns chasing the title for the next couple of months will be nauseating though.

Meh, outside of the ending, I thought it was a fun rumble. Set up a lot of stuff and it was always going to end with HHH or Reigns winning

i actually really like roman reigns, but their insistence of making him look strong is brutal. he sat out about an hour of the rumble - fine. they couldve done a huge swerve and had bray win the belt/wyatt family destroying brock and roman/HHH going at it and setting all that up for wrestlemania, but they went predictable. a little disappointing but the whole show was good overall.

i was actually hoping for more surprises during the rumble match. AJ Styles was awesome but expected. Only other surprise was Sami Zayn. I feel like they usually do more older/surprise entrants

I saw some speculation that makes sense and would keep Reigns from getting booed at WM. Vince and Steph in Trips corner, Rock and Rousey in Reigns, with Stone Cold reffing. I honestly figure their want to push him to the top spot will eventually wear down everyone.

I don't hate Trips being the champ and winning the Rumble, but I dunno how they're going to avoid 100,000 people [expletive] on the main event at Mania. Good luck.

I'm holding out hope for tonight. After that, I'll resign myself to him being done. It IS very possible they figured if he was in and didn't win the Rumble, it'd get horsefeathers on bigtime no matter what.

I'm a Jerichoholic, so I don't understand his usage. They want to use him to put guys over, and I get that, but shouldn't the guy actually win sometimes in order to put someone over?

I think they should throw the IC belt on him and let him heel it up until Mania. Better than you Jericho is the best Jericho. Give him a cheap "clean" win at Fastlane and build a Jericho vs Styles Mania match.

Yeah, the rub for beating him pretty much stopped with Fandango. I mean, Jericho is awesome, but I really wish they'd give him some big wins too, instead of relying on his past to sell.

Excellent match with AJ just now too. And in THIS case, I'm glad he lost.(but I'd make the case AJ should have went against someone else)

I think they just don't understand why certain stars are loved or hated. Damn near everyone loves Jericho because he was so good at being hated. Let him come back, get the nostalgia pop, and then be an amazing heel. Don't shoehorn him into being supercool WWE legend Jericho, let him horsefeathering work.

Oh horsefeathers, New Day bringing it right now!
