    Good to see Kalisto win. Prefer him over Del Rio.

    Also happy to see the Social Outcasts being made to look pretty good, relatively speaking. They confront the Wyatts and come away from it okay, though with help from Ryback.

    I take pity on whoever eliminates Lesnar from the Rumble. If anything I hope it's a double elimination of Lesnar and Reigns to have that feud, if they want it, separate from the title. Though a feud with Lesnar guarantees Reigns being booed, I think.

    I was saying to my brother today how Becky is the only face diva at the moment, since Nattie is rarely there. But the fact she stated how she's alone could lead to either a Paige turn (again) or a Bayley debut.

    At least Owens didn't get pinned in that main event, though you'd think the others would act as lumberjacks.

    As to Steph's comeuppance, I think since she claimed responsibility for the Divas division, they need her involved in those storylines and make her the authority figure there where they can hit back.

    I found the One against All to be poorly done..

    It really wasn't a One vs All.

    So are we meant to have forgotten about the League of Nations by now?

    If it Happened more than two weeks ago. It never happened.

    Brock was the best thing on the show and I loved watching him throw guys around. It was scary but brilliant. He really is one of the very few guys around who can keep you on the edge of your seat whenever he appears.

    The fact that he appears so rarely is a positive for me. His appearances are must see every time. Before he's finished he'll be one of the best of all time.


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


    He certainly makes his appearances count every time he's on, leaves you clamouring for more.

    Bizarrely the things he does are predictable, yet he seems unpredictable.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,543 ✭✭✭Mick Murdock


    He has a presence that so few guys in history have had. I don't think WCW Goldberg would be anywhere near as effective in 2015.

    Also a very underrated promo. There's no questioning Heymans contribution but Brock could work well without him too.


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


    He's nowhere near as compelling without Paul Heyman doing his talking for him, in my opinion. Having said that, I doubt he'd suddenly become less over if he came without him suddenly.


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


    You can't have Lesnar without Heyman, it's like peanut butter without jelly, wouldn't be the same, they compliment each other so well.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,543 ✭✭✭Mick Murdock


    I think everything has a shelf life and Heyman could work with well with a younger guy (Not Reigns).

    That said its not played out yet.

    Excellent point! Remember the weeks after when Lesnar came back and started the feud with Cena and they had a contract signing and he was really exposed on the Mic. What he was saying just didn't match up with his actions in the ring. Heyman really adds a different element to his character.
