    Thread title has a CLEAR WARNING, so if you haven't seen Battleground, AVOID this thread...

    With an excellent Battleground in the books, attention now turns to SummerSlam in 4 weeks time.. And RAW starts the "New Era" minus a World Champion due to the Ambrose retaining his title and taking it to Smackdown Live..

    BEAT BLUE
    With the ball now in Raw’s court, what will Commissioner Stephanie McMahon and General Manager Mick Foley do for their first show of the New Era

    THE NXT FACTOR
    The WWE Draft saw the much-anticipated summons of Finn Bálor from WWE NXT, as well as the unexpected selection of Nia Jax, the powerhouse of the Women’s division.

    TKO.
    If WWE Battleground was, indeed, the last time Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens will ever fight each other, then Owens has to be feeling pretty rotten right about now.

    HOUNDS WITHOUT A BONE.
    There’s no chance these two are done with each other, so the only question is where “The Man” and “The Guy” will take their rivalry next

    #CesaRAW
    No idea what to put here, will he continue on his rants/pipebombs.. Who knows..Tune in to find out I guess...


    SKY SPORTS 5 - 1 AM

    I'm really hoping that Roman embraces the heel heat and fully turns and in doing so cites how the Usos (now off on SD so he can say what he likes) were out celebrating with Ambrose to show that nobody has ever really had his back.

    Also... Finn to finally debut on Monday Night Raw!

    how they deal with that is really what I wanna see this show for, far more than them no doubt announcing that at Summerslam they will crown a new Raw champion.

    Start of a tournament tonight, new Champion crowned at Summerslam is the most likely route, who'll be in that tournament, answers on a post card..

    And seeing Finn debut, that'll be one reason to check out RAW tonight.

    and in an ironic twist, Cesaro wins it


    (Vince, call me)

    Well if anyone's deserved of a sustained push, it'd be Cesaro, but alas Vince probably won't/definitely doesn't share the same opinion.

    You'd feel sorry for Seth having to be stuck in a feud with Roman for the next few months.

    And they've gone back to
    Red ring ropes

    Small thing I've always wanted them to go back to :P

    It's a reused old Summerslam set.

    Read somewhere that as part of the "New Era", both shows will have new sets and new theme songs.

    WWE Must have needed to make room in their warehouses.

    Ah Christ really ? Not a fan of that now.


  • Registered Users Posts: 39,429 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy


    Also why was Lillian Garcia nowhere to be seen last night ? Jojo (who was looking very well btw) and Greg Hamilton were doing the announcing honours. Has she been given the chop ?

    Seen her on Twitter mentioning that her father was sick and was going for scans

    What has Cesaro been saying? Saw the one on the Draft live where he complained about being asked about Foley and Stephanie.


  • Registered Users Posts: 84,850 ✭✭✭✭JP Liz V1


    Is Rollins Vs. HHH still happening as rumoured, could begin tonight with Steph blaming him for losing world title match so title is on SD with Ambrose

    Nice addition to the pre show in lita.


  • Registered Users Posts: 39,429 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy


    At least she is nice to look at.


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


    Lita is looking well these days.


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


    Will Bayley be on the show tonight, or was Battleground just a one off thing.

    John bollocks layfield kept saying it was a one time deal.

    Refresh my memory lads but wasn't becky drafted ahead of nattie ? They just a recap of some of the draft picks from last weeks draft and becky wasn't there.

    Jesus what a bunch of petty pricks the WWE are. I mean one of the most talented and likeable women wrestlers(I'd even say one of my liked people on the roster full stop) in the world is on your roster and ye seem to have said "nah **** it"

    I mean if it has anything to do what she said at comic con. Which nothing she said wasn't true then that's even worse.
