    Win, Owens, Win. At least, he better, now that the trash-talking NXT Champion has been reduced to the trash-talkingformer NXT Champion following the events of The Beast In the East this past weekend on WWE Network. Kevin Owens’ long flight back to the United States sans his beloved title must have left the brawler with a sour taste in his mouth, which means reigning U.S. Champion John Cena should expect a long, long night from his No. 1 contender. What hell will Owens unleash on the Cenation leader?

    1. Defying Authority With The Authority reunited and going strong, not even a trip to Hawaii could derail the momentum of Seth Rollins and his squad ever since they came together to drop Brock Lesnar two weeks ago. Last week it was Roman Reigns who felt the corporate power’s punch, though The Big Dog got some measure of retribution alongside Dean Ambrose on SmackDown. Is this the week the former Shield brothers land some of their own jabs on the champ’s chin?



    2. Turn the Paige Paige’s return to action last week may not have earned her the army of followers she wanted to battle The Bella Twins. Yet, The Diva of Tomorrow’s match with Alicia Fox did represent the first successful salvo against “Team Bella,” as Paige’s victory was the first defeat Nikki & Brie’s unit has suffered since its formation. Having exposed the Bellas’ vulnerability, can Paige rally more of her fellow Divas to the cause? Or is she still a proverbial army of one?



    3. Fall of Roman Thus far, the rivalry between Bray Wyatt and Roman Reigns has been about as one-sided as it gets. The Eater of Worlds has wormed his way into the 2014 Superstar of the Year’s head and set up his rocking chair to stay. Even worse, Reigns hasn’t been able to shake The New Face of Fear to land a single blow of his own. Last week was the strongest shot across the bow yet, as Wyatt softened up Reigns for an Authority beatdown and feasted on the remains afterward. Reigns’ SmackDown performance, however, sends him back to Raw on a strong note. Can The Big Dog shake the circling buzzard?

    4. The Awesome Opportunist Playing the role of Edge in the Intercontinental Championship Triple Threat at WWE Battleground is The Miz, who doesn’t really have to beat Ryback or Big Show to earn his fourth go-round with the prestigious title. He just has to wait until the two giants annihilate each other and pick the bones. Miz demonstrated as much with a hit-and-run on The Big Guy that took the whole WWE Universe by surprise. With a target on his back, though, can Miz evade punishment of his own from the titleholder, or The World’s Largest Athlete, for that matter, before he makes his bid for the title?

    5. A prizefighter without a prize The U.S. Title match between John Cena and Kevin Owens at WWE Battleground just got a lot more interesting, because Owens is no longer NXT Champion. The ruthless brawler was dethroned by Finn Bálor in Tokyo over the weekend, which means for the first time in his rivalry with John Cena, KO doesn’t have some hardware of his own to back up his bravado. Smart money says the former NXT Champion will up the ante as WWE Battleground approaches in an attempt to weaken Cena and regain his own championship status. See what goes down when Raw returns live.

    Will Balor get his RAW debut as NXT champ I wonder.


  • Registered Users Posts: 48,990 ✭✭✭✭Lithium93_


    Finn Balor debuting in the smarky 2nd City, please let it happen. Have a feeling it'd be awesome.

    Wow, Otunga had a match.....


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,166 ✭✭✭Stereomaniac


    Yet again, I hope The Big Show beats Ryback clean in the middle of the ring with a submission.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 3,642 ✭✭✭andyman


    Chicago firmly behind Ryback. Exactly what I like to see. Really enjoyed him lately.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 3,642 ✭✭✭andyman


    'The United States Championship Open Challenge is now open, you want some, come get some..'























    Imagine!

    garda van at Wrigley Field LOL


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 3,642 ✭✭✭andyman


    A pop for Roman Reigns in Chicago.

    I'm stunned, but delighted as well. He's worked really hard to turn that around.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,166 ✭✭✭Stereomaniac


    Hopefully Sheamus can turn this around now as well! I'd like it if he became a top level heel. Hopefully he acts the maggot with a weapon of some sort at the end of this match now.

    Checkov's car[/. Has there every been a hero's vehicle not trashed?

    Is the Dusty special on the network after Raw a backstage affair or in front of the crowd?

    Titus absolutely schooling JBL and showing all three of them how to call a match.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,166 ✭✭✭Stereomaniac


    I really hope The New Day win back the championships at Battleground. They're so entertaining.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 3,642 ✭✭✭andyman


    What a belter of a match this is


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 3,642 ✭✭✭andyman


    Why to sell Cena's finisher there Owens..


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,120 ✭✭✭✭J. Marston


    What does running Cena close two weeks in a row achieve? Nothing.

    Good matches yes, but hard to get invested in them when the result is a foregone conclusion.

    I'm not too bothered if achieves nothing it was a great match and I'll take a twenty minute great match over just about anything. They've had 5 weeks of TV to fill and at least we got a great match.

    I thought when I realised Cena was closing the show that we were going to get something big happening. Really liked the idea of a triple threat. But no, just Cena beating Cesaro clean, albeit in a good match, and then laying out a fresh Kevin Owens. :(

    Cole on Sheamus vs Orton "I think this is just getting started!". Really? Do you think they have focus groups saying that these two feuding indefinitely ios what they want?

    Brock with two axes looked badass.

    Otherwise, I can't think of a single other thing worth viewing. Absolutely nothing was furthered last night, story wise.


    WAIT! Except Rusev/Dolph....and I'll be honest, I have zero sympathy for Dolph, who has been taunting an injured man for weeks. Dolph has been making out with Rusev's ex publically, often feet from him, while Lana has been insulting him over and over. What did Dolph think was going to happen?

    Booking 101 says that now Owens will stand tall on the go home show, meaning he loses at the PPV :mad:


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,880 ✭✭✭✭Rock Lesnar
