    *CARD IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE*

    gotta think a few results here are very predictable: Brock, Cena (although it's pretty sad to think the World champ losing is a forgone conclusion) & Owens to win at least

    That said I would enjoy a Jericho vs Owens feud so wouldn't mind if Jericho won with Owens holding onto the title

    Also think they are missing a trick by not including an NXT match of some sort as I think that was actually the big selling point of Beast in The East. Great we get to see Brock but his match doesen't matter really.

    Personally as these are one off specials why not have a unique one off match like Enzo & Big Cass vs The New Age Outlaws.

    It's the new Cena vs Orton!

    tbh I almost feel the same way about Rusev vs Ziggler... really hope that feud dies at HIAC (unfortunately it will at least make it that far)


  • Registered Users Posts: 20,753 ✭✭✭✭beakerjoe


    Its a glorified house show, it may be a network special but the most compelling match his New Day v Dudleys, after that nothing really sticks out as news worthy.

    Jericho v Owens is an odd one considering Jerichos heelish actions after NOC but its a house show at the end of the day.

    I fear its in a holding pattern until Lana returns.... which could be a long time away.

    These two guys are capable of much better. Zigglers brand has been damaged since turning face to a point where I wince when his music plays, which was the opposite feeling only 2 years ago. He hasnt progressed at all.

    Rusev has been trying to find his feet since the Cena feud ended and hasnt really recovered. Both men are excellent wrestlers who have been greatly mishandled recently.

    Those are literally the only two matches that would be on the show if I was booking it.

    ok Bo Dallas wasn't exactly going to draw too many people to the event vs Brock but i'd honestly say that i'd be more interested in that match up even in a car crash, horror movie, rollercoaster type way.


    random card put together in the time it took to write it including the limitations of not messing with current storylines too much and it being essentially a house show with a John Cena match thrown in there somewhere:

    Fun 1 off special attraction match
    The New Age Outlaws vs Enzo & Big Cass w/Carmella
    As the title says it'd be a bit of fun, get the crowd going as an opener and the old stars could put over the young guns

    Intercontinental title match
    Chris Jericho vs Kevin Owens


    Champion vs Champion Divas/Womens match
    Bayley vs Charlotte
    they are used to each other, would pull off a great match, a match that would once again put over the NXT womens division and you could book it so neither one loose, double countout or Bayley passes out in Charlottes submission but doesn't tap (maybe a little over done these days but still)

    John Cena US title invitational
    Cena vs suprise entrant (maybe NXT's Samoa Joe!)
    Why not? Have Joe push him right to the limit too, hell leak online that Joe will answer the challenge and you might get more people sign up to the network as part of a free month to see it (and they may stay signed up)

    Tag Team Titles match
    The Dudley Boyz vs The New Day


    Brock Lesnar special attraction match
    Brock Lesnar vs Cesaro
    Cesaro always delivers in ring and for a mtatch that doesen't need a storyline that more hardcore fans than casuals will watch this would be a sorta dream match that we will otherwise not most likely ever get.

    Why don't they just advertise it as US Champ John Cena def WWE Champ Seth Rollins in a Steel Cage Match? Has Cena not done enough damage to Rollins credibility as it is beating him clean twice in 24 hours for no good reason? They can easily protect both guys by making it for the WWE Title and have Rollins cheat to win but of course Cena will win easily once again, devaluing the Heavyweight title even further.

    You would think Rollins would be standing up for himself backstage, especially considering he is close to HHH. I mean they have turned the WWE Champion into a jobber who loses on almost every Raw and Smackdown.

    I'm a big fan of Rusev and like yourself have gone off Ziggler something awful too. I would also fear that they may drag it out but if they are that determined to involve Lana just bring her back early but don't have her in a physical role. She is a Valet / Manager anyway so it shouldn't be too hard and they can always have her in a big cast and get even more sympathy in her role in the storyline.

    Ideally have her come back but as part of a heel turn screwjob where she goes back to her real life man Rusev at Ziggers expense, end the feud and then they can always re-visit it (way) down the road if Ziggler gets back any of his momentum.

    I didn't agree to any of that!

    Looking forward to seeing Show getting took to Suplex City tonight. I'm going with 12.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,836 ✭✭✭Pentecost


    Lads Alicia Fox is sensationally hot. That's about all that's jumped out so far.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,505 ✭✭✭✭Xenji


    The Owens Y2J match was really disappointing, was expecting a lot more from it, I know it is a glorified house show, but its very poor so far which is a shame as the it is the usual hot NYC crowd.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,632 ✭✭✭deafroadrunner


    The new day we're class with the whole whazzzuup :P


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,102 ✭✭✭✭J. Marston


    Do New Day write their own promos? I refuse to believe anyone in creative is capable of coming up with genuinely funny material every week.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,505 ✭✭✭✭Xenji


    Well the New Day are losing at Hell In The Cell, but god they are irritatingly entertaining.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,505 ✭✭✭✭Xenji


    Lol all the hype and Show is pinned in under 2 minutes, Brock really earned his money there.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,632 ✭✭✭deafroadrunner


    well that was quick

    the face on him when he was doing the German suplex's though :D
    his face too when he came back out for some more

    They really needed to clean the cage, Cena is covered in black dirt.


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


    I thought the steel cage match was very good, and Cena didn't exactly squash Rollins either.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,689 ✭✭✭sky88


    The sound was very bad I thought and the crowd was subdued a lot for a New York crowd


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


    The audio cut completely for me briefly when The Big Show. Maybe his pop was just so deafening.


  • Moderators, Computer Games Moderators, Music Moderators, Regional Midlands Moderators Posts: 24,124 Mod ✭✭✭✭Angron


    Meh. Wasn't even close to Beast in the East.

    Boring to see New Day vs. Dudleys go the exact same way as NoC, Big Show getting squashed after squashing Cesaro for a few weeks, and Owens having to cheat to win again and again after being so dominant in NXT. Was glad they rolled Ziggler, Sheamus, Orton, and Rusev into the one match at least.


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


    I was trying to tell myself that Sheamus might cash in because they had him stand tall over Rusev after their loss and there was no mention of him potentially cashing in all night. Kevin Owens still looks dominant. He's a heel so I have no issue with him cheating victories.

    I just would have preferred a decisive victory over Jericho, feels like it would have meant so much more than a thumb to the eye and a small package.

    Sounds like something they might use to build to his rematch with Ryback as it's the same way he beat him (the cheeky thumb to his eyes)
