    Re: OT: Top Ten Wrestling Dream Matches

    I'm back to watching again. Kind of fell out of it after Summerslam other than the Brock/Goldberg match at Survivor Series, which was hilarious. Overall, I thought RR was a great show with a mediocre finish. All the singles matches were entertaining, the Cena/AJ match was MOTY quality, and the RR match was good until the last 15 minutes or so.

    Really feel like WWE is just trolling people with Roman now. Having him come out at 30, eliminate Taker, and having him go up against Undertaker at WM, they are in full troll mode. There is no galaxy in which any wrestling fan is going to actively cheer Roman over Taker. I don't get it, but I never will when it comes to their handling of him. I almost feel bad for him at this point. I thought I heard the fans chanting "same old shit" when he came out, although it may have been "this is bullshit", which is not better. Not to mention, a match between Roman and Taker is sure to be awful, given the shape Taker was in at RR. He looked like he could barely move and he was much heavier than he's ever been.

    I don't really get Orton winning the Rumble. Orton vs. Cena is something that we've seen in many forms for a decade now. I assume Wyatt will be involved somehow but again, Wyatt and Cena is something we saw just a couple of years ago.

    I would rather have a 60 minute Iron Man match between AJ and Cena for the title at WM. They are 1-1 and both matches were phenomenal, I want to see it again. I don't even care who wins. The real crime at Mania is going to be if AJ is stuck in some midcard feud with someone like Miz or Baron Corbin rather than near the top of the card where he belongs.

    I don't really even pay attention to Raw at this point but I will say their development and handling of Braun has been great. I'm of the belief some time in the next few weeks we'll see the JeriKO split and that will be the Raw main event at WM. As it should be, as they are the two that have carried the show for the entire year, basically, and it's a story that they've been building for a year. When I look at Raw's roster and where the top pieces are falling for WM, Roman/Taker as I mentioned, Seth and HHH and/or Samoa Joe, there aren't many more possibilities I see for KO.

    The way it looks to me, they are setting up a swerve with Luke Harper. I think he ends up helping Wyatt win the belt in the Chamber match, which will put Orton against Wyatt at Mania. That's what I would do. I'd take the belt off of Cena that quick. He doesn't need to keep it for several months. Keep him in the mix, as well as Styles (because he's one of, if not the BEST wrestler in the company) I don't mind them bringing Corbin into the mix. They need new faces up there instead of the same weekly matches.

    The whole Miz/Daniel Bryan feud is a bit pointless to me, unless Bryan is cleared to return. There's absolutely no reason to have the feud if there's no pay off match between the two. Bryan doesn't need a feud to be relevant in his new role, and the Miz doesn't need to feud with someone he won't even get in the ring with. There needs to be some kind of match for a pay off.

    Taker is done! Dude can't even move. He doesn't even walk down the ramp anymore when he shows up. Lights go out, come back on and he's already in the ring. lol I don't think they are setting up a Taker vs Reigns match at Mania. I think Reigns feud with Strowman will end at Mania. Maybe Taker appears and screws Reigns somehow, but even then, that would set up a feud between those 2 and I just don't see Taker putting on a decent match in the shape that he's in. He needs to hang it up.

    Lesna vs Oldberg is a total snooze fest. Brock dominates the entire locker room during his comeback, only to have Oldberg come off the couch and dominate him, twice now? Nah, I'm not buying that. I know the end result will be Brock going over and Oldberg going back home to his couch, but I don't even care to see another match between those 2.

    Tired of HHH having a Mania match each year. Still agree with Punk that it's not needed and it's taking a spot away from a full time wrestler. It's the same exact story each time HHH is involved, and it's gotten stale. I'm not saying the match with him and Rollins won't be a good one, but I just don't care to see HHH out there one or 2 times a year with the exact same story as the last few years. Having Samoa Joe in the mix isn't making the feud any better. I know they had to find a way to bring him up to the main roster, but he could have been #30 or even been one to accept one of Strowman's open challenges. I'd rather see Joe in a feud with Strowman than Reigns.

    Jericho and Owens match, when they finally start that feud full force, will be the match of the night IMO. Those 2 are the only reasons to be watching RAW these days.

    Waiting for Balor to make is return so I'll have another reason to watch RAW

    Yes, that Cena/Styles match should win MOTY. If it doesn't, I can't wait to see what match beats it. Gonna have to be a damn good one. Glad the bar was set high very early in the year.

    Women's division on RAW is a total joke. Complete snooze fest.

    Where I like the idea of the cruiserweights being back, I don't like them having matches on RAW. Keep 205 live separate. It doesn't fit in with RAW and it makes it where they have to have a commercial break and backstage segment to set it up, only to have one match then go right back to commercial to change back to RAW. It's all RAW stories and matches, then all of a sudden, we are back with purple ropes and shit and a cruiserweight match that if you don't watch the 205 Live show, you don't really have any vested interest in to begin with, more commercials, then back to RAW. It's out of place IMO.

    Anywho, the brand split still isn't anywhere near what it could have been. They are still not "competing" against each other like Vince wanted them to do for "control" The only time it's even been brought up as any type of competition is when Smackdown beat RAW in ratings that one time. (Honestly don't see how it hasn't been more than once, because Smackdown is the superior show now) The totally dropped the ball on that one, again. From their standpoint, it's a success because it wasn't done to "shake things up". It was done with the sole purpose to get people to watch Smackdown, especially with them making the move to USA Network. It worked. Smackdown's ratings are up, so it's a success to them and USA Network. But as far as storyline standpoint, they are not following through with how it was set up, which is not a plus for the fans. IDK, I could be the only that is still bummed that they didn't do it the way it could have been done with actual competition, trades and such. Make me believe Shane and Steph are actually trying to out do the other for control of Daddy's company!

    Poor Ziggler. Get's a nice push/feud against the Miz, wins the IC title, then loses and gets pushed back down to midcard snoozefest level. Heel turn, okay. Mid card matches, yet again...why?


    I'm done rambling for now. lol

    Re: OT: Top Ten Wrestling Dream Matches

    Just got word that Rollins reinjured his knee during the Samoa Joe attack this past Monday and his timetable for a return is unknown. Huge blow for RAW.



    EDIT. It could be just storyline. Rollins left arena on crutches but it could just be a work. Guess we will have to see if Rollins is on RAW next week or live "via satellite".

    Re: OT: Top Ten Wrestling Dream Matches

    The right knee injury that Seth Rollins suffered at Monday's RAW in the fight with Samoa Joe is believed to be a torn MCL, according to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

    We noted before that Rollins was evaluated by doctors in Birmingham, Alabama on Wednesday and early word is that he will be out of action for around 8 weeks. The scheduled match with Triple H at the April 2nd WrestleMania 33 pay-per-view is possible but not definite. This is the same knee that Rollins had reconstructive surgery on last year, forcing him to miss the first scheduled match with Triple H at WrestleMania 32.

    As speculated earlier, The Observer adds that the segment on RAW was to set up Joe vs. Rollins at the March 5th Fastlane pay-per-view. Rollins would then face Triple H at WrestleMania 33

    Re: OT: Top Ten Wrestling Dream Matches

    Bill Goldberg as WWE Champion going into Wrestlemania in 2017. What a time to be alive. Y'all know I was excited as hell to see Goldberg back for the nostalgia factor but I didn't want this. And doubly so because it means Brock is going to be the champ after WM...which means no title defenses and rare title appearances from WM until Summerslam, most likely.

    Re: OT: Top Ten Wrestling Dream Matches

    I cancelled my Network subscription this morning. I'm at the point where I can no longer tolerate the bullshit coming from the company, and not even the return of the Hardyz (which was awesome) is enough to make me stay.

    The best wrestler on the planet going against a 50 year old non-wrestler in the curtain jerking match. Allowing a guy who has no business doing so to retire Taker. Burying Bray again in favor of a mid-30s part timer. One of the best performers in the company since the brand split gets stuck in a throwaway tag match with the only purpose being to allow Cena to propose to Nikki. Dean and Braun not even on the main card. What? Come on.

    Re: OT: Top Ten Wrestling Dream Matches

    I keep getting a red page of doom on this thread, mainly when trying to access the last page. Anyone else having this issue? (if so, I don't think I'll be able to see the response until it's on the page before the last)

    Mania 33 was pretty good. Had some dull matches that I thought would be better. But dragging out the even from 5:00 till after Midnight might of had something to do with it. It was a better show for me than last years even though.

    Now that the Hardy's are back and Oldberg lost, I can finally start watching RAW again. lol

    Re: OT: Top Ten Wrestling Dream Matches

    This is what I said on the previous page about Mania:

    I cancelled my Network subscription this morning. I'm at the point where I can no longer tolerate the bullshit coming from the company, and not even the return of the Hardyz (which was awesome) is enough to make me stay.

    To be clear, aside from a few matches, I didn't have major issues with match quality but the overall setup and booking decisions was lacking. The best wrestler on the planet going against a 50 year old non-wrestler in the curtain jerking match. Allowing a guy who has no business doing so to retire Taker. Burying Bray again in favor of a mid-30s part timer. One of the best performers in the company since the brand split gets stuck in a throwaway tag match with the only purpose being to allow Cena (who himself should have been in a bigger match, like, oh I don't know, retiring fucking Undertaker?) to propose to Nikki. Dean and Braun not even on the main card. What? Come on.
    Now, I will say this...if...and that is a big if right now, they continue pushing Roman down the heel track, maybe letting him retire Taker was worth it. It'd be a real shame if they let the heat go to waste. The crowd last night towards him was basically ECW One Night Stand Cena level of hatred. Multiple DELETE chants, there was a "Fuck You Roman" chant, a "Shut The Fuck Up" chant before he had said a word, "Asshole", "Go Away", "You Suck"...it was incredible. It was "Die Rocky Die" for this generation. The thing is, will WWE continue to push him that way? I don't really expect the crowd reaction to change any time soon, retiring the guy who is one of the three or four most beloved WWE guys of all time will do that, but WWE has never really cared about the crowd reaction to Roman. So I guess we'll see.

    I do like seeing Kurt Angle back on TV and his clearly visible joy at being back on WWE is great.

    One other thing, as much as I loved the Hardyz and I love the fact they are back. it's a waste to have them doing the original gimmick. People know what Broken Matt and Brother Nero are, need to continue that. Otherwise, they'll be like the Dudleys were in a couple months.

    I took a peak at the highlights and that did seem odd to me. Then again, WWE is notorious for not welcoming what wasn't their brain child. From Ron Simmons to DDP to Cactus Jack and countless others.

    What really sucks is that the Broken Matt gimmick is arguably the only reason the Hardyz are even relevant in 2017. And, if they don't go that route, one of two things is probably going to happen, either they grow stale in a month or two after the nostalgia has worn off and end up jobbing their way back out of the company, or WWE breaks them up and pushes the guy who has always (in WWE, both with fans and Vince) been more popular in Jeff. Matt without the gimmick is a guy with weird hair and a beer belly.

    Re: OT: Top Ten Wrestling Dream Matches

    Well, The Hardys are in a legal battle with TNA currently over the Broken gimmick, so they can't really use it at the moment. So there's that one.

    AJ Styles wanted HBK at Mania. It was pitched to HBK first, and he turned it down. With everyone else already being booked, that left AJ without a match. So, they went with Shane, which will set up the Styles moving to RAW angle. He said on Smackdown he doesn't want to go, because he built Smackdown. Pretty sure they will use his feud with Shane into that as well. All Shane has to do is remind him of who calls the shots on Smackdown, and it's not Styles, so off to RAW you go....

    Cena is pretty much part time now. It was better for the company and business in general for them to have Reigns beat Taker instead of Cena, who the crowd also loves to hate. It's not like he doesn't get blasted with the Cena Sucks chants each and every week! Also, maybe Cena wanted to do the proposal angle instead. Cena beating Taker would have done nothing for the business and it wouldn't have the fans as pissed off about it creating the buzz it's getting. It would have just been another "Look, SuperCena does it again" type thing and he's move on to his part time schedule.

    With Reigns beating Taker, it sets up a younger guy that they have continued to push, and will keep doing so as long as he doesn't screw himself with another failed test, as the new guy to lead the company. Like it or not, Reigns is going to be the face of the company. A heel turn would make the most sense, just like it would have a year ago. I agree that needs to happen, more so now than ever. No one cares about Strowman. No one would care to see a Strowman vs Reigns match at Mania. That is for a regular PPV if it has to be done again, and even then it will be a boring match. Mania is way too big of a stage for a Strowman vs Reigns match. So having Reigns beat Taker and lay claims to it being his yard, continues Reigns push as the top, dominate guy. That will most likely continue next Mania when he beats Lesnar. It's best for Reigns, it's best for the company, and it's best for the business as a whole to have a younger guy take over than a part time Cena. Oldberg, HHH, Taker, Shane, and Jericho all lost at Mania. All older guys that lost to the younger guys that are carrying the company now......


    I've liked Reigns from the beginning, and I will keep liking him. Not because they are pushing him down my throat as "the guy" but because I don't think he's that bad and he definitely has the look to be the face of the company. Sure, there will be supporting cast like it always is, but Reigns has a look that fans will notice quicker than say KO or Styles (who I believe is the best wrestler on the entire WWE roster).


    I agree 100% with WHY IN THE HELL DID YOU ALREADY TAKE THE TITLE OFF OF BRAY! There was no reason what so ever to give it Bray at the chamber, to take it off of him at Mania. Orton didn't have to win that match or the title to turn back face. The whole join them so I can break them down from the inside was good and all, but all they had to do was have Randy get to Luke Harper from the inside and talk him into turning on Bray. That would have us right at the same place we are now, Orton and Harper are faces, going against Bray and returning Rowan. Could have had it where it looked like Luke was turning on Bray and Orton (which they did) but have it where it was Orton all along pulling the strings on the Harper turn, and they both turn on Bray in a match. Bam, Orton back a face to take on Bray at Mania for the title, have some stuff go down where Harper gets involved, looks like Orton is gonna win with Harper's help, surprise....Rowan appears and evens the odds....Bray gets the win, keeps his title, and we are right back to where we current are....
