    Was just thinking, Roman has to be pinned in this match, right? I know he was pinned by Rollins to lose the title but unless they plan on rewarding Reigns with the belt, then he should be the one to take the pin. Though that doesn't make him look strong. Can then make the Rollins/Ambrose match at Summerslam

    I'd expect some sort screwy finish to split the championship in two so both RAW and Smackdown have World Champions.

    oh good I have no trust in wwe doing that in a way that doesn't make one of them look weaker.

    Split championship between Ambrose and Rollins, but have Reigns possess the one belt to rule them all.

    Title match or non title?

    Non title just a six man tag

    Well that's kind of disappointing, you'd think they'd book it for the tag titles.


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,774 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy


    Yeah, I think t's time for New Day to drop the titles. Maybe a Wyatts win will get them a title shot at summerslam

    I still think another 3 months of New Day as champs has a lot more potential than Strowman/Rowen. They're so bad like.

    I'd much rather see Harper and Bray as champs. Still kinda feel like the titles should have been dropped at the last show to be honest though.

    Yeah it would be better but I think the usual types would complain if Bray was relegated to the tag division.

    But it might make him somewhat relevant :P I thought Bo was joining the Wyatt clan, him and Bray as tag champs could work too

    with Styles and The Club being drafted to different rosters, i can see them losing to Cena and Enzo/Cass and the club turning on AJ Ideally they should have Finn cost Aj the match and reunite with Anderson and Gallows but it maybe too early for the Balor Club.
    its 2 vs 1 (raw have Reigns and Rollins and SD have Ambrose) in regards where the WWE title could end up. I think Rollins may win the title and bring it too Raw, while a new 'World Heavyweight Title' will be introducted to SD.

    Yeah wouldn't be surprised if
    Ambrose drops the belt to Rollins and then Smackdown crown a new champ at Summerslam. The winner of AJ vs Cena (with no club involvement) at SS will probably be the SD champ (maybe their will be a tournament that will lead to that match being booked for the title).

    I wouldn't be surprised to see a double pin of some sort to end it

    If sasha's mystery partner isn't bayley then you'd have to wonder what the hell wwe are doing with her.

    It almost definitely is. It'd be why she wasn't drafted, it would quickly cease to be a mystery partner then.

    I've a sick gut feeling that Sasha's mystery partner will be
    Nikki Bella

    I hope, hope what I've spoiler tagged is wrong and that it will be Bayley.

    I actually want
    Nikki
    back BUT in that match there is no point as they can't follow up on it, I am guessing she needs to be on
    Smackdown where DB and John Cena are for the Bella show on E

    Ah no
    nikki bella
    is like curt hennig compared to Eva Marie. I still don't get it. I mean Eva's snapchat gives it away that she isn't training. Going to the beach isn't wrestling training. I honestly thought we were past the era of dolly birds who looked nice but didn't know a wrist lock from a wrist watch.

    I think the Shield triple threat is a waste unless they all come out in Shield gear

    Little bits like that would really add to the match

    Remember they wore these bad ass half masks? Would've loved to see these and also some sort of riot gear incorporated for a Mania entrance.

    I loved that look

    Pity they only had it for ~2/3 months

    I always thought they ended too early, that their face run could have gone longer

    But maybe them ending before getting stale is why people will be excited when they do reform sometime down the line


  • Registered Users Posts: 37,698 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    Anyone go to the smyths signing in Nov 2013 with the shield ??? Qued for about 2 hours was In the first 25 people to go through remember there was a huge crowd behind me. Who knw I'd be meeting 3 future world champions

    Anyway I can see a mick Foley heel turn who will cost ambrose the title so it will stay on raw, expecting shano and Bryan to be involved some way too in the main event
