    Hey, am I the first one here? Only because Jesse reminded me. I was reading an article. David Jr’s article.

    • David Jr.

      The Ultimate Royal Rumble?

      • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

        Yes, I can’t imagine how you write those. I don’t have the focus to get that organized. Or the memory for it.

        • David Jr.

          Wrestlemania which I put 12 matches on was alot easier to pick than the Royal Rumble which I put 5 matches on.

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            But it’s also not repeating any wrestlers, or more than one specific title match, or… It’s just really well thought out. I’m impressed.

          • David Jr.

            Yes, that’s why the Royal Rumble was hard, if I picked Triple H vs. Cactus Jack from Royal Rumble 2000, it left me with Duggan’s, Studd’s, Hogan’s 2nd, the Rock’s, Benoit’s, Sheamus’s and Batista’s 2nd, and none of those I really wanted to use.

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            I can understand that, but I loved Benoit’s RR.

          • David Jr.

            I partly did not want to pick a match Benoit one, but also I think I eliminated it because Matt Hardy was in it, and I love Hardyz vs. Dudleys table match.

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            Those three teams really changed what Tag Team matches could be, and since it was the first Tag Tables Match, I know why you did it.

        • David Jr.

          I love facts, I love organizing things, making charts, etc. I also believe I have a really strong memory.

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            I used to have a strong memory, but was very ill for two years and lost a lot! I call it the Great Brain Drain. I wrote every Raw Results and RIB through that time, but remember little to nothing from it, and lost a lot from before then. It’s making the WWE Network that much more exciting, but also really sucks. I had to ask Jesse questions about the Invasion this morning because I couldn’t remember how Steph got ECW if Heyman was already on announce the night Shane showed up on WCW.

          • David Jr.

            On the WWE Network I watched so far was WWE Countdown, one of coolest catchphrases and the other greatest entrances. #1 for entrance is almost a no brainer so they got that one right, but I didn’t agree with the greatest catchphrase list.

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            I didn’t actually see the catchprases one,I got distracted.

          • David Jr.

            Well I don’t want to spoil it for you but the guys at 4 and 5 should have been higher than the guy at 3.

          • Seth

            I did tune into the Renegades and Outlaws thing on the legends of wrestling. I really enjoyed that and Piper’s a damn riot!

  • The Breaker

    I guess this makes three. Just watching the pre-show. Kinda annoying how it’s mostly a RAW recap that they’re going to do again during SD anyway.

  • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

    I have to announce that Jesse is in the kitchen cooking for Stacy and I. Never let him live it down!

    • The Breaker

      I can’t make fun of him for that. It would feel so wrong!

      • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

        Actually, it’s very sweet of him to do it. I sure didn’t have it in me tonight, and Ellie put together supper last night.

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Richard Gray

      What did Jesse cook? We went out for pizza here!

      • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

        He made this cheeseburger soup. It’s really yummy!

  • Seth

    Even’n world. Kind of enjoying Persona 3 Portable but I’ll watch some SD because…well why not and I went in without reading any spoilers so I’ll probably enjoy the show more.

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      I work hard to avoid spoilers for any and all shows.

    • The Breaker

      Persona 3 Portable, good stuff. It’s weird that they’re releasing 5 in 2015, but it’s still going to be for PS3.

      • Seth

        Well I had Persona 3 FES and Persona 4 on the PS2…and since I’ve got the Vita, I do have Golden and now just got to the portable version. Playing the female character in a way has made me want to apologize to any female ever whenever a dude says something over the top to the female…

        • The Breaker

          Haha funny how video games can give you that sense of perspective. But men always seem to be way worse about that in Japanese games/anime…

          • Seth

            Operation Babe Hunt…enough said.

          • The Breaker

            Yep. xD

            In Killer is Dead, there are gigolo missions. I think that’s pretty self-explanatory, haha.

          • Seth

            Oh God. Lol

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      Jesse actually just bought me the game for my PS2. I’m kind of behind when it comes to gaming consoles.

      • Seth

        Really I don’t have any of the new generation systems(No PS4, Wii-U or X-Box 1) so I’m kind’a behind too…but game systems are kind’a expensive and I never recommend anyone to buy a game system unless you’re at least going to get 8-10 games minimum on it…unfortunately I own about…a legitimate 300 or so games including the ones on my computer…and that is what makes me a nerd…lol

        • The Breaker

          Sound advice. Unfortunately for me I was one of the early adopters for the Wii U. :(

          • Seth

            There were some games I’d want on the Wii or the Wii-U but it never eclipsed 8…

          • The Breaker

            I only have six Wii U games, and that’s counting Nintendoland which came with the system.

            Super Mario 3D World, Super Mario Bros. U, Need for Speed Most Wanted U, Rayman Legends, The Wonderful 101, and Nintendoland.

  • David Jr.

    WWE’s website has a list of the 30 best big men, #25 on the list was Bubba Ray Dudley, is he really a big man?

    • Seth

      At one point in his career, Bubba was a legitimate 400 pounder. Most of his WWE career he was between 280-300 pounds though.

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      Yeah, I think he was at certain points in his career.

      • David Jr.

        The list was kind of weird, the top 4 were obvious 1. Undertaker 2. Andre the Giant 3. Big Show 4. Kane. but Big Boss Man was 14 and Kevin Nash was 16.

  • The Breaker

    I wonder what they’re building up Big Show for in terms of WrestleMania.

  • Seth

    I can at least say as a positive…Batista is an entertaining character as a heel. Improvement is a step in the right direction at least…

    • The Breaker

      I agree! He’s basically playing his Twitter personality, and it works.

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      Jesse and I were just talking about how much better Batista is as a heel, but Bry sure put him in his place verbally!

  • Andrew

    hey what up guys!

  • David Jr.

    If I’m not mistaken, but I think Daniel Bryan’s first ever match on Raw was against Batista.

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      May 3, 2010, a Beat The Clock challenge where Bry was in for Miz. Batista won in 5:06

      • Seth

        If I remember correctly for a five minute match it was a very fun one.

  • The Breaker

    I would love it if someone made fun of Batista’s belly button tattoo every week.

    • Seth

      How about all of his horrendous tattoos? Why stop at one?

      • The Breaker

        You would need at least a 30-minute segment for that!

        • Seth

          Sorry Zack Ryder…no wrestling for you…we need a 30 minute segment on Batista’s ink!

          • The Breaker

            There’s always Superstars.

          • Seth

            Nope. We need that for Los Matadoras.

          • David Jr.

            Actually make fun of Batista’s Tattoos will air exclusively on WWE Network.

          • The Breaker

            They should stream that show during RAW so when there’s a lull you can just switch over.

  • Seth

    Teddy Long special!

  • The Breaker

    Isn’t it convenient how matches seem to just book themselves? Being GM is a piece of cake!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It’s so easy, Eugene can do it!

      • The Breaker

        And Hornswoggle!

  • ldb

    Did batista steal Rybacks leather vest jacket?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Maybe he stole Ryback’s cardio too!

      • ldb

        don’t forget the pink eye.

        • David Jr.

          That was a Botox mishap.

          • ldb

            can’t botox that mug. check out that forehead man it extends past his face. must have a genius size brain in that box.

          • David Jr.

            oh wait that was Bob Costas.

  • Seth

    CHRISTIAN! CHRISTIAN! At last…you’re on your own!…I like that song WAY better than the piece of crap song he’s got now…

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I kinda miss it too!

      • Seth

        It just totally screamed ‘My God…this guy is a *insert negative descriptive word here*

  • ldb

    ziggler seems to always get a good reaction even though he is booked like crap.

  • David Jr.

    Are they restarting the Ziggler vs. Del Rio feud from last year?

    • Seth

      Back on the treadmill again.

      • David Jr.

        Sheamus and Christian, Del Rio and Ziggler it’s almost like they took a name of a bunch of guys who they had nothing to do with and tossed a dart at them and that’s how they paired them off.

        • Seth

          My guess is they could do some sort of huge tag match as a filler involving most of those guys.

        • The Breaker

          It’s forced. I can’t get into it at all.

          • Seth

            It’d help those guys if Christian got some extended promo time establishing why he doesn’t like Sheamus. I’m talking extended and a valid reason. He could easily be this whiny, slimy bitter veteran.

          • The Breaker

            It’s true. He doesn’t have any kind of motivation other than “He Brogue Kicked me that one time”

          • David Jr.

            I missed mid card feuds of old days. I mean Steamboat vs. Savage was a great match from Wrestlemania III but it also had a backstory and you wanted to see Steamboat get his revenge on Savage.

          • The Breaker

            They just don’t give them the time to really become anything anymore.

          • David Jr.

            Even though they have way more TV time now than they do back then.

          • Seth

            More TV time sometimes is a bad thing. One, speeds up storylines, and two…saturates the market.

          • The Breaker

            Yeah, their focus is so unbalanced, and it’s a problem. While the three-hour RAWs are better than they were when it all started, they still haven’t figured out how to build one without letting guys that should be key pieces get lost in the sauce.

          • Seth

            A ton of it I think is they go 90000 MPH doing stuff instead of telling a smaller story that can extend over time with selling certain aspects of it. Its little things man.

          • David Jr.

            That’s what I like about the old days, story lines had a chance to grow.

  • ldb

    instead of doing 20 raw recaps on the shows couldn’t they give some newer or returning roster a match?

    • Seth

      Also since SD is the LEAST watch show of the two…wouldn’t it make more sense to devote a couple minutes on RAW to recap SD more often?

      • ldb

        yeah they could do better with smackdown. I wish they would replace main event with the NXT shows.

  • Seth

    Del Rio is slurring his Spanish pretty damn bad…did he hang out with Ric Flair? He took the bad habit…not the charisma!

  • Seth

    …the distraction finish AGAIN? Can we come up with something a little different? Please? Please? It isn’t fresh because it was done in Spanish…if anything it made it worse!

  • ldb

    every time i see Sheamus I think about the promo Jericho did when he returned and said what happened a giant Ronald Mcdonald is running the place. Or something along those lines.

  • The Breaker

    If Christian vs. Sheamus is happening at WM 30, then there’s going to have to be a gimmick attached to it. They’ve already faced each other a few times on RAW and SD. While they were solid matches, it wasn’t enough to make you really want it again. And Sheamus has beaten him every time. So maybe they make it a Street Fight? Last Man Standing? With the stip that the loser retires?

    • David Jr.

      If Christian loses he has to retire and if Sheamus loses he has to get a tan.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        That works for me!

        • David Jr.

          It can be called the Tanned or Canned match.

      • The Breaker

        Haha now that would be a career-killing move for him!

  • ldb

    here comes jobaxel.

  • David Jr.

    Smackdown was filmed at the JLA, I should have went.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Then why haven’t we seen Aquaman?

      • David Jr.

        Sorry, JLA to a Michigander is Joe Louis Arena. WCW would have called him H20Man and he would have feuded with Arachnaman

    • The Breaker

      Well Batista did call himself a superhero…

      • ldb

        are you sure that wasn’t a super hero in training?

        • The Breaker

          Rosey should come back and sit on Batista so he can’t make it to WM.

          • Seth

            The S.H.I.T. saved Wrestlemania by sitting on Batista. That’d be a great story to tell your kids for years to come!

          • The Breaker

            They would be singing songs in his honor!

    old ryback would have just took those chops said my turn and shellshocked both the usos. Oh times have changed.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    AJ just stiffed Eva! YES!

    • David Jr.

      Doesn’t she tie Maryse today for the most days as Divas Champion?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Tomorrow is the tie. And she passes it on Sunday.

        • David Jr.

          So Wikipedia is wrong.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I may be off a day myself, but my understanding is it is tomorrow that she ties.

          • David Jr.

            On Wikipedia it says AJ and Maryse both are at 265.

    • The Breaker

      If Eva knows anything about being new she would have to expect that.

  • Seth

    Michinoku Driver!

  • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

    I thought it was just AJ working stiff against Evil Marie, but Nattie and AJ were really stiff there!

    • Seth

      If you can’t stiff your friends who CAN you stiff?

      • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

        True, very true! I’m just impressed that the Divas are not pussyfooting around the ring the way they had been for too long.

  • BlazeKing

    It’s amazing how both A.J. & Tamina tried their best to make Eva actually look decent (somewhat) on TV.

  • ldb

    Man i miss Paul bearer.

  • The Breaker

    AJ is the longest-reigning Divas Champ, but she’s spent most of it buried in 6-Diva tag matches. I don’t see how she could be enjoying it too much.

    • Seth

      Really isn’t that hard to just give them a little promo time too. Let them find their characters or be their characters.

      • The Breaker

        It goes back to how unbalanced the focus is in WWE. The mid-card barely gets any attention, so where does that leave the Divas?

        • Seth

          Well one word…it begins with F and rhymes with sucked. I’ll say no more to that. Hah

          • The Breaker

            Heh pretty much. The Divas that actually care about wrestling and getting better are probably wishing they were down in NXT on a regular basis.

  • BlazeKing

    And I still stand by my statement that Eva needs to be sent down to NXT for a solid year. She’s only on Raw & Smackdown to promote “Total Divas” and nothing more.

    • The Breaker

      She’s a walking promo with red hair. But the thing is that they couldn’t care less about her ability as a wrestler.

      • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

        Unless she injures someone, then there’s hell to pay!

        • The Breaker

          Is there though? Aksana got away with it just fine!

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            But VKM is all in love with her right now.

          • Seth

            Lets love someone who knee drops people in the eyeball…right…*cough* DAMN YOU POWERS THAT BE!

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            For some reason he’s high up on her. I don’t get it, personally. I had no real problem with her until that eye drop. That was total BS!

          • David Jr.

            What’s not to love? I mean what’s to love?

      • David Jr.

        As a Michigander, I can’t believe some people were actually cheering for her. Though I did laugh at the Red Hair, Red Wing thing said by Michael Cole.

      • Seth

        Whenever she speaks she just makes me want to PERSONA myself in the brain to rid the memory.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          SPOILERS DUDE!!!

    • Seth

      A year of titan jobbing in NXT while training, and then if she starts to get it a year of learning offense.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        She deserves the Mikey Whipwreck treatment…

        • BlazeKing

          Damn…

        • Seth

          I don’t think she has the mystique to make that work either…

  • David Jr.

    In 1991, my brother, father and I went to the Survivor Series in Detroit at the Arena that tonight’s Smackdown was filmed at. Undertaker fought Hulk Hogan for WWF Championship and my brother had a sign that said Hulk Hogan rules Undertaker and Paul Berer, he to this day blames me for making him spell it wrong.

  • ldb

    you think theyll have rusev take the belt from ambrose, since its the “us title”

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I hope not.

    • The Breaker

      The US title needs to be rebuilt, not dragged through the mud.

      • David Jr.

        they should just get rid of it, just have the WWE, Intercontinental and Tag Team Championship. Oh the Divas ok too.

        • The Breaker

          I think they have to unify the US and Intercontinental belts. They could just go on calling it the IC Championship.

          • David Jr.

            They’d end up calling it the United States Intercontinental Championship.

          • The Breaker

            Does that even make any sense? lol

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            It is the E we’re talking about.

          • David Jr.

            What do wrestling and sense have to do with each other.

  • The Breaker

    I like the sign of the S.H.I.E.L.D. emblem in the crowd!

  • Seth

    I think Dean’s just on another level in terms of his promos…

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Call me crazy, but it feels like we may get a full Shield face turn!

    • The Breaker

      You’re crazy, haha.

      • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

        They’ve been becoming tweeners lately, especially with the love the fans have for Reigns, and starting for Rollins.

        • Seth

          Dean is such a natural slime…its awesome.

        • The Breaker

          Fan reaction doesn’t necessarily change their storyline character though. The Wyatts are definitely still heel, but hardly get booed.

  • The Breaker

    Well, those hoping The Shield will stay together through WrestleMania must be pretty frustrated right now.

  • BlazeKing

    The Shield has been secretly acquired by…. The Wyatt Family Inc.

    XD

  • Adam Wacker

    That honestly has to be one of my favorite moments involving The Shield. Such an amazing story told by all three of them.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Agreed Adam. And the cheers afterward makes me wonder if people weren’t premature in calling for their demise.

      • The Breaker

        It could still go either way, but I’m leaning towards them imploding. Reigns didn’t look too pleased at all during that segment, but he kept himself from getting involved. Might be something to that.

  • Seth

    FELLA!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      *Starts slapping chest uncontrollably*

  • Seth

    Remember when this match was one of the major PPV matches…for many months in a row?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Sadly. ADR, though, should have NEVER been in the main event… Unless it was on Main Event.

      • Seth

        Poor Main Event! You get trashed more than Shotgun Saturday Night!

        • BlazeKing

          Sadly, nobody remembers Jakked…

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            I do! And Heat!

          • BlazeKing

            What about Metal? :p

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            Vaguely.

          • Seth

            Velocity!

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            Yes!

          • BlazeKing

            You win. I forgot about Jakked years ago until I saw the logo like 2 days ago!

          • David Jr.

            I remember watching WWF Wrestling Challenge.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I loved Shotgun Saturday Night, if for nothing else than the live music that was on it. I loved hearing Stupefy getting bleeped 40 times!!!!

        • The Breaker

          Don’t forget Sunday Night Heat!

    • BlazeKing

      Nope. Had a dose of Mind Bleach after Elimination Chamber… Is it bad that this match is ok in my eyes?

      • ldb

        its ok we have had batistia matches to compare it to. thats my reason

        • Seth

          You could have Sid Vicious do a kidney claw for 8 minutes. RIVETING!

          • ldb

            Hey I m half as smart as you think I am. ( sid to kevin nash)

          • Seth

            He could’ve asked for another take on live TV…oh wait…

        • BlazeKing

          Lol. That’s like how the NXT crowd always chants “Better than Batista’s” during Emma matches!

    • David Jr.

      It felt like years.

  • The Breaker

    Sheamus just stole the typical Cena method to counter out of the Cross Armbreaker!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So we got 2 Cross Armbreaker failures… More proof ADR NEEDS a new finisher!

    • David Jr.

      Submission finisher is ok, but every wrestler needs a pin finisher.

    • The Breaker

      Is it just that ADR isn’t willing to change anything about the way he works?

      • Seth

        He’s working like a guy who is just counting down the days and waiting to get out.

        • The Breaker

          I wouldn’t care if he just walked out.

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            I would throw a party!

          • The Breaker

            Not a fiesta? :P

          • David Jr.

            Watching Del Rio can make you want to take a siesta.

          • Seth

            *Wakes up* Oh…Del Rio’s done wrestling? That was a great cure for my sleep apnea…

          • The Breaker

            He makes you want to actually check the WWE App.

        • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

          Phoning it in, and not even caring if he has reception at this point.

  • The Breaker

    DEP!

  • Brandon Ceielo

    Cross Armbreaker on a “bad arm”, just for him to fight out of it and have Sheamus win. Wtf.

    • The Breaker

      And Ziggler is going to face him at WM? Meh.

      • Brandon Ceielo

        Wait, is that seriously in the works? Good way to make an awesome worker look as uncared about as ADR (although I still like ADR).

        • The Breaker

          Based on what happened earlier on SD, it does seem to be what they’re planning.

          • David Jr.

            Del Rio vs. Ziggler will probably be on the pre-show, though with the WWE Network now, it will probably be all on it, so is it really a pre-show anymore.

          • The Breaker

            It’s still a pre-show if it comes on right before the show, right?

          • David Jr.

            I guess.

  • Seth

    Luke’s a great talker with that low tone. Makes him instantly stand out and instantly memorable.

  • Andrew

    man wyatts are awesome!

  • Seth

    William Regal called and he’s still the real man’s man Dave. Sorry to burst that bubble sir.

        Let’s just say that’s the face of a real man’s man that wants to kick your ass! I remember this theme more than I do any ADR match!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          BURN!

          • Seth

            God bless William Regal.

      • David Jr.

        Ever seen the William Regal vs. Daniel Bryan match from Superstars.

        • Seth

          Awesome match and they ribbed Regal in his home country by playing a little bit of that song with his normal one. It was funny.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I have, and it was a pure clinic. One of those matches I play to my son to show him what WWE lacks in from when I was his age.

  • David Jr.

    Face of the WWE and Best for Business can we please bury those sayings where ever Jimmy Hoffa’s buried.

  • Seth

    Alex Riley looks like he’s starting to suffer from a little bit of a receding hairline.

  • The Breaker

    Another pointless Rusev stage segment?

  • Seth

    I know they’re going with the brute thing…but if you’re going that route…why the HELL does he have a neatly trimmed goatee and just generally looks like a clean guy. If the guy is a ‘brute’ then make him look a little less pretty and more like a damned brute! It bothers the hell out of me!

    • BlazeKing

      He’s more of a “straight fighter” than a brute now. The subtle change in attire made that noticeable. Before he got that call up, he wore that brown garb-like thing that resembled a skirt. It looked nomad like. Then he changed to what he has now and the announcers played up his martial arts skills. Plus, he always refers to himself as a “Super Athlete”.

  • ldb

    kind of interesting with the invading rusev. and russia invading ukraine. at the same timeline. Sort of like when they had the storylines tied to middleast stars and america.

    • opie

      Rusev is from Bulgaria, not Russia.

  • ldb

    by the way not condoning russia, just saying it ties into the news

  • David Jr.

    Trivia question, what 3 songs have Hulk Hogan come out to at Wrestlemania.

    • The Breaker

      Eye of the Tiger, Real American, and… don’t know the other one.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        NWO Theme.

        • The Breaker

          Oh yeah. Hollywood Hogan.

          • David Jr.

            Yes those are the 3.

    • ldb

      eye of the tiger, real american and his nwo voodoo child

  • ldb

    big show in skinny jeans great one

  • The Breaker

    I don’t get why they’re pushing Rusev so much on RAW and SmackDown (albeit without giving him more than those stupid segments on the stage), but taking a cool gimmick like Leo Kruger and changing him into Adam Rose.

    • BlazeKing

      Don’t write off Adam Rose just yet. Somebody else told me not to write it off and from what I’ve seen on NXT, it could actually work. It’s him being what he wanted to be. He didn’t really like that “crazy” version of Leo Kruger over the version that won the FCW heavyweight title. When he talked about he’s “cutting this puppets strings”, he was talking about wanting to do Adam Rose. Creative didn’t think it would get over. Then they saw Emma got over with her dancing, lol.

      • Seth

        You generally find more success tapping into a guy’s personality so this obviously has a chance to succeed. Honestly I liked the entrance. It created a buzz and a stir. It makes him different.

      • The Breaker

        Yeah but you have to wonder how far that gimmick would get him on RAW.

        • BlazeKing

          Bigger stage, bigger crowd, bigger LED boards, better lights and effects… It’ll scale up nicely just you wait.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            After watching NXT last night, I can say I am a fan of the gimmick! Kruger was a great character, but this just feels… fun! Honestly, I’d love to be in the Rose crowd for an entrance!

  • The Breaker

    Taker on RAW! Hopefully this means they’ll have time for him.

  • ldb

    If Bryan and HHH meet at WM how much interference time does Kevin Nash get, and Stephanie, and Kane, and maybe have Armstrong ref it.

  • The Breaker

    Big Show vs. Korporate Kane at WM?

    • David Jr.

      Oh why not it’s random, it’s been done many times before, it’s perfect for this Wrestlemania.

      • The Breaker

        That does seem to be their booking philosophy this year, haha.

  • Seth

    That double suplex looked bowling shoe ugly.

  • The Breaker

    So according to Batista, a real man can’t go in the ring for more than 5 minutes without being completely gassed?

    • David Jr.

      Well I guess Randy Orton’s the perfect opponent for him, he loves headlocks.

      • The Breaker

        So many rest holds! lol

  • David Jr.

    To all Triple H haters, Triple H vs. Ultimate Warrior at Wrestlemania 12, has to be their favorite Triple H match.

  • Seth

    Well I need to be up early tomorrow. Going to the Kansas-WVU game so…I’m going to put on ADR matches…and get to sleep real fast that way. Good night world!

  • The Breaker

    So will this all circle back to Triple H owing Big Show’s house, meaning Show will fight Kane for everything he took at ‘Mania?

    • David Jr.

      Who knows, Big Show is a guy who was fired after having a iron clad contract.

      • The Breaker

        There was a never-before-mentioned loophole that Trips was able to figure out at the most convenient moment possible! … Which makes it no longer iron clad, but… shhhhhh!

        • David Jr.

          Yeah well apparently the house Triple H bought the mortage from was actually for Big Show’s dog house.

  • The Breaker

    Big Show called out how terrible the double suplex was on the post-show backstage pass, haha

  • David Jr.

    Good Night everyone.
