    High stakes and 'Extreme' circumstances

    1. Will AJ Styles embrace his ruthless side?

    2. Who deserves to challenge The Miz?

    3. Where is Dean Ambrose?

    4. Is Charlotte running scared?

    5. Will Rusev devour Kalisto’s ‘big heart’?

    The excitement is palpable.

    I'm guessing someone other than Finn will get the NXT call up this week.

    I've seen a report that dana brooke is backstage at raw. That seems like a random one if she's there for a call up.

    Mitch the plant has had better character development than Reigns, sad but true.


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


    Enzo getting a concussion is Vince's dream. Now he gets to push the big guy.


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,332 ✭✭✭✭martyos121


    That was a pretty awful promo from Cass, as much as it pains me to say it. Sounded so unnatural and scripted.


  • Registered Users Posts: 60,274 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    I think this might be the start of a new Era :P

    Baron Corbin reminds me of Jon snow for some reason

    Speaking of wwe/got lookalikes there's a guy in castle black who really looks like Neville

    A lot of excitement here for last nights Raw! They really seem to be losing momentum fast.

    I'm enjoying the Styles Reigns build but finding it hard to get into as you know Reigns is going to retain.

    Not just that but nobody's even allowed get significant offence in against him. Weird to see a fairly pro-Reigns crowd even if it was pointed out that it was pro-Cena country.


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 42,396 Mod ✭✭✭✭Lord TSC


    It was an ok Raw, but there wasn't anything spectacular, and my usual complaint applies....nothing progressed, storywise, meaning it was entirely skipable.

    The best part was the Reigns/Styles showdown, but it was the crowd that made it. They were incredibly hot for that staredown. Its incredible to me that WWE have created a new main eventer in the space of 4 months when they really wanted to. Don't know who to credit there, and how much/little is WWE booking. But if you'd told me 6 months ago that Styles would be a main eventer in a program that was being so well received by fans, I'd have said you were dreaming.

    Only other positive thing of note was that they created a link between Balor and "The Club" last night. Running the Balor ad on Raw to hype him for his NXT return was one thing. Having Cole follow it straight up with the line "Of course, Fin Balor well known to the men in the ring right now!" during the six-man match.....thats no mistake that a link has been floated there.

    Negatives...Shane and/or Steph were in every second segment, which was overkill. The final one was weird, as it achieved nothing. It felt like someone forgot the killer final line. Similiarly, the final segment seemed to be as if someone forgot to call cut on the show. It just kept going with nothing happening. Big Cass is NOT ready for a singles push. Roll-ups Everywhere!

    Seems like not a huge amount of interest happened last night from reading results.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,850 ✭✭✭Depp


    can they not call it the bullet club for copyright reasons or something?

    They haven't made any logos for it yet so I'd say there's a very strong chance it'll become the Balor Club before too long. They certainly have the copyright for that.

    The Club absolutely must be a placeholder until that happens, I can't see them sticking with such a terrible name.

    theyre selling balor club shirts already anyway...aye its not the best alright but its not the worst considering its the bullet club and not just a heap of randomers


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


    I think the club is ok for now as it keeps us all guessing if finn will eventually come up and it will become balor club.

    I assume NJPW have it so that they can sell merch in the US?


  • Registered Users Posts: 60,274 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    The Young Bucks have been using The Bullet Club name on ROH shows and its used in Joint R0H NJPW shows in the States so I would guess NJPW have a worldwide copyright on the name.


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,786 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy


    Looking forward to Dana meeting Renee and Jojo and patting them on their heads.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 14,158 ✭✭✭✭ Amaya Drab Vocation


    I thought the lads came up with the bullet club name the selfs?


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,629 ✭✭✭Adiboo


    I like Baron Corbin and his finisher looks great. Would love to see him break that azz Ziggler's f'ing neck. Hate that guy.

    You're a really cool guy.


  • Registered Users Posts: 37,716 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    Anything special going to happen for the 2000th raw show in 2 weeks ??


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,786 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy


    Are we there already?

    Clearly it'll be a special to honour the career of Big Show and Roman Reigns

    It's... It's not even close to 2000? Two weeks is episode 1200.
