    Do they still talk does anyone know?

    I thought they fell out after Kane tried to bury him alive for the 4th time?

    Looking at it from a storyline point of view: the chicken sh*t heel Rollins just got away with his title because the supposed babyface Taker, unhappy at losing to Brock fair and square - attacked babyface Brock who had been battling to regain the title that he lost in harsh circumstances. This makes sense WHY?

    Mentioned this in the Raw thread. They've really been screwing round with their booking with regards faces and heels recently....

    There's also going to be the question...why now? It's been a year and a half since the loss, in which time he came back to fight Bray at the same show Brock was fighting on.

    But let's see if they address that at all, or hope we just forget about it :P

    I've had this happen numerous times. Its utterly ridiculous for anyone not watching live. Its now at the stage that when I boot the app to watch the Network, I just cover up everywhere on the screen but the top left corner. It feels stupid though.

    at around 4am a notification came up on the screen of my phone saying Undertaker has returned at Battleground and cost Lesnar his match against Rollins. Glad I stayed up to watch it but WTF?!? I really dont get the mentality behind those kind of mobile alerts...

    They had a Brothers of Destruction reunion two years ago when Kane was tag teaming with Daniel Bryan. They more or less patched things up.

    I sent off a very strongly worded email about the horseshît spoilers on the app, I'd advise everyone else to do the same or it won't ever be changed.

    What email address did you send it to ?

    appfeedback@wwe.com

    The more emails they get, the quicker this BS will change.

    You can turn off notifications from particular apps - I have them disabled for WWE. For Android (or Cyanogen in my case) it's in the Settings > Apps > WWE section.

    Too late for Battleground but hopefully helpful in the future.

    Edit: sorry, just realised it's for people who actually went to watch the show on the app and seen it on the homepage. I watched it on the PC and avoided spoilers so didn't notice this. They could at least change it so WWE network menu comes up first instead of News.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,949 ✭✭✭A Primal Nut


    Thinking more about the main event, it was a bit disappointing. Rollins-Lesnar has sort of been a dream match built up over many months with a good storyline and two guys who are usually great in the ring. WWE basically booked a 9-minute squash match. It didn't have to be like that, they had plenty of time, as the show finished early and they could have shortened or gotten rid of the Miz - Big Show segment. If that's the only Rollins-Lesnar match we get it would be a disappointment.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 21,296 ✭✭✭✭gimmick


    It was a fun end but I don't understand why Taker would chose that exact moment. Why not wait until Brock wins thus setting up a title match between them?

    I have similar issues with guys making saves in the Royal Rumble match etc.


  • Registered Users Posts: 39,437 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy


    Just watched the divas match on the live channel and could this be a new dawn. Slightly more awake than half five this morning so maybe it's better now. Charlotte is brilliant and I'd say the pressure of her dad must weight on her a bit.

    Yeah, I was disappointed by the lack of Ambrose.
    And Cesaro IMO

    Great match between cena and Owens but why wasn't the finish the AA from the second rope ? And someone needs to show cena how to make that STF look good. It's the drizzling ****s and it's starting to annoy me.

    But in saying that cena has upped his game or at least shown he can do more than the five moves of doom.

    Also where does this leave Owens ?

    Bray Wyatt bores the hell out of me.

    I mean, his character could be fantastic, but he goes after everyone for pretty much the exact same reason, talking bollocks about how similar they are, beats them, then just leaves them go about their business until WWE can unleash him on the next star who's over. It makes no sense. I know they tried and failed with Daniel Bryan in a brainwash sense but that's when his shtick should have changed. If he and all of these guys are supposedly similar, then doesn't it make him like everyone else?

    Still don't understand why audiences continue to give Roman Reigns stick either. It's hilarious they'll claim that it's because Vince is trying to force Reigns down our throat, while continuing to cheer on Wyatt, with whom they're doing the exact same thing with.

    Xavier Woods is gold. "Worst. Legdrop. Ever." , when Titus dropped a big leg mid match!

    Similar to me wondering why any outside interference is so late into the match when it could've been won by a quick roll up or any of the many near falls that happen, especially after a finisher.

    Had the return spoiled by IGN who posted an article on their front page with the headline asking what readers thought of Taker's return.

    During the Seth/Lesnar match when Seth was hitting the superkicks and Lesnar bent over, I was thinking he could win now with a curb stomp.

    Turn off notifications only way

    People should know not to go on website with US target audience before watching a delayed PPV
