    1. Road to WrestleMania now clear for Triple H
    WWE World Heavyweight Champion Triple H managed to Pedigree Dean Ambrose and escape Toronto with the title, but now the path is clear: He's set for a championship showdown against Roman Reigns at WrestleMania. Despite Ambrose nearly pinning him — Ambrose's feet were under the ropes, causing the official to call off a would-be three-count — The Game can now fully turn his attention to The Big Dog eying his title.

    Roman Reigns has been recuperating since Triple H shattered his nose on the Feb. 22 edition of Raw, and with Triple H defeating Reigns' best friend, what message will the champion have for his WrestleMania opponent?

    And how will the defeated Lunatic Fringe respond after the heartbreaking defeat? Even though he lost, his performance surely has to boost his confidence leading into his No Holds Barred Street Fight against Brock Lesnar at The Show of Shows. But given Ambrose's unstable disposition, that isn't much consolation. What chaos will he cause after coming up short in another big match?

    2. Sins of the father
    If you don’t think Shane McMahon is capable of holding his own against The Undertaker inside Hell in a Cell at WrestleMania, you might want to head to WWE Network and brush up on your Shane-O-Mac history. After all, The Show of Shows is just three weeks away — what are you waiting for?

    Yet, Mr. McMahon might be Shane’s greater enemy in the lead-up to The Show of Shows as he continues waging psychological warfare on his progeny. Given that control of Raw and, in essence, the company will be at stake on The Grandest Stage of Them All, WWE’s Chairman will stop at nothing to emotionally attack Shane, last week callously and symbolically destroying a framed photo of himself and his son. Will WWE’s prodigal son be able to withstand his father’s cruel machinations as the most important battle of his life approaches?

    3. Will #KOMania become #WrestleZaynia?
    Kevin Owens has lamented that he doesn’t yet have an Intercontinental Championship challenger for WrestleMania — or #KOMania, as he calls it — but he might have gotten one in a big way when Sami Zayn returned on Raw and attacked his deceitful former friend.

    The one-time allies were set to square off in tag team action on SmackDown, with Zayn and Neville partnering against Owens and The Miz. However, when The Prizefigther was tagged in to face Zayn, he walked out on the match. Is the Intercontinental Champion afraid that his title reign is just one Helluva Kick away from coming to a close?

    4. There’s something about Lana
    Lana has yet to reveal why she attacked Brie Bella twice in the past week or why she has taken such a malicious interest in the “Total Divas” star, but The Ravishing Russian has certainly picked an opportune time to make Brie’s life miserable.

    As WrestleMania approaches, every competitor in WWE is looking to make an impact, and Lana has certainly been doing that in a major way — despite never having competed inside a WWE ring. How will Brie retaliate against her blonde aggressor, and how might this rivalry affect The Show of Shows? Expect more from these two Divas Monday night.

    5. Burn, baby, burn
    As if there was any confusion that Y2AJ was no more after Chris Jericho attacked AJ Styles with three Codebreakers and stuffed the team’s newly released T-shirt down The Phenomenal One’s throat on Raw, Jericho officially burned that bridge — and a separate Y2AJ shirt — on SmackDown. Lambasting all those who cheered for Styles in lieu of celebrating Jericho’s many accomplishments during his 17-year WWE career, Y2J also seemed to sever his ties to the WWE Universe Thursday night.

    With his actions last week, Jericho affirmed that he has a lot of unfinished business with The Phenomenal One. Does this mean that Styles vs. Jericho IV awaits? If so, when will it happen?
    Daniel Bryan
    rumoured for tonight's show

    The New Day will also defend their WWE Tag Team Championships against Sheamus & Rusev

    Also seeing as America have put their clocks forward, it's a midnight start on Sky Sports 5.

    Was Reigns written out due to a legit injury or are they just afraid of the reaction he gets?

    It's the latter. As embarrassing as that sounds.

    I think he does have a legit injury but it is more afraid of the reaction.

    I think he could be easily on the show but not wrestling. I think there aiming for hhh to become as hated as possible

    A combination of both, apparently Reigns had a deviated septum prior to Triple H beating the bejaysus out of him a few weeks ago..

    The Undertaker
    also confirmed for tonight's show.

    I had the operation for a deviated septum and it's not a big operation but **** it it's painful as hell afterwards and breathing through your nose is no fun for a while. I heard people say it was a work because he had no bruising around his eyes. I didn't either.

    How do you even manage a deviated septum?, I know I read it in Duff McKagan's book that he had it, due to years of snorting Coke.. What causes it??

    Me thinks the deviated septum was just an excuse to sell the beating Triple H gave him.. Or it could've been legitimate..

    Easy enough. I don't know I was having constant sinus problems and it was because of my septum being deviated and pressing against the area near the sinuses and I was told it wouldn't sort itself without the operation. I don't know why I had it.

    Raw is in Pittsburgh tonight. Rumour going around that
    Kurt Angle
    may feature.

    I really doubt it, but I would mark the f*ck out if that happened.


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,842 ✭✭✭✭ShaneU


    Are they still going with HHH vs Reigns at WM? HHH winning is pointless and Reigns will be booed out of the building.

    No way. Absolutely no chance.

    Bloody hell, now I'm going to spend the whole show waiting for
    that glorious music.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,848 ✭✭✭Pentecost


    Oh it's true, it's damn true!*


    *i'm sure it's not but it's an open goal


  • Registered Users Posts: 45,558 ✭✭✭✭Mr.Nice Guy


    Dave Meltzer was asked about the chances of an appearance and he said 'Extremely doubtful' so take it with a pinch of salt.
    From what I gather, the rumour mill seems to have come about based on a meeting that took place with HHH and Angle at the Arnold Schwarzenegger Sports Festival last weekend. Kurt was being inducted into a Sports Hall of Fame by Arnold; HHH was in attendance as well. It was supposedly Hunter and Kurt's first face-to-face talk in ten years. If true, it's encouraging they are mending bridges with each other.

    Ambrose/HHH rematch ending in DQ and beatdown leading to Reigns save?


  • Posts: 0 [Deleted User]


    Is
    Angle
    not under contract with TNA?


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 42,447 Mod ✭✭✭✭Lord TSC


    Actually was meaning to ask, what was
    the deal with Angle? I saw some stuff about a Farewell tour?


  • Registered Users Posts: 45,558 ✭✭✭✭Mr.Nice Guy


    His contract expired recently and he chose not to renew it. His final appearances in the promotion were titled as a farewell tour and he lost to Lashley in his last match.

    He's scheduled to face Rey Mysterio next week in some weird show that has boxing and MMA matches on the card. He is a free agent though.

    Angle is fighting mysterio in april
    so not exclusively it seems.

    Wiki says his last TNA match was on march 8th against bobby lashley


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 16,096 ✭✭✭✭the groutch


    it shows just how poor the WM card is if they're having to bring in people like that to try sell the show, especially
    Bryan having yessed off into the sunset only a few weeks ago


  • Registered Users Posts: 45,558 ✭✭✭✭Mr.Nice Guy


    Dave Meltzer:
    Regarding the Kurt Angle rumors, while you never can say never in wrestling, WWE has consistently not been interested in him in ten years. Regarding the report we had of HHH and Angle seeing each other at the Arnold Fitness Expo last week, according to those close to the situation, while both were there, the report was not the case and there was no interaction between the two.


  • Registered Users Posts: 85,919 ✭✭✭✭JP Liz V1


    Miz vs. Sami announced


  • Registered Users Posts: 39,762 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy


    Andre the giant battle royal was announced on the raw pre show. Well I mean announce is a bad word as we all probably knew it was happening but it's the first mention of it i've heard.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,414 ✭✭✭Toobz


    Well if that ain't a positive start!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 16,096 ✭✭✭✭the groutch


    Booty-O's > Fruity Pebbles


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,152 ✭✭✭✭J. Marston


    The League of Booty.


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


    Hopefully they make jinnets out of these two lads now. They've had such a great 12 months.
