    Or they are given a 3-5 minute clusterfcuk of a match at the start of the main show.

    Much more likely to be punished like that now that people had the audacity to interfere with the desired plan

    Card seems too stacked to me, even with the preshow.

    We're obviously going see at least a couple of 2-3 minute throwaways.

    No Rusev & Lana on the show is a fcuking disgrace.

    Rusev is hurt, afaik hence why he hasn't been on to for a few weeks. Before he got hurt, there'd been talks of a match vs Finn Balor.

    Could they show a video
    announcing the return of the Hardyz at mania and they will debut in a few weeks (maybe the next raw ppv) ???
    A return at mania would be amazing but Vince doesnt do logic

    For the most part yes but only a few years ago Taker was a raging favourite against Lesnar and Sting the same against HHH on the day of the event. Only started to change dramatically a few hours beforehand.

    Long enough for someone to come on here and say odds are dropping for x so

    He's out due to a shoulder injury, apparently he put the surgery off for good amount of time, got it done March 9th and is likely to miss 2 months if memory serves me correctly.. At a guess he'll be back in May.

    Plus Lana's been at the Performance Centre polishing her wrestling skills.

    Talks of Rollins having pneumonia.

    Meltzer also saying that Taker vs Reigns has a high possibility of closing the show.

    Yeah saw that. A temp of 103.5 as well apparently. If he didn't have bad luck he'd have no luck. There was a video I saw last night of him talking about missing a workout with cesaro because he was sick and to be fair he sounded very sick.

    Lads was it flagged before that this is big shows last mania match ? I must have missed it if it was.

    Don't think so, he mentioned it on Sam Roberts's Wrestling Podcast.

    Better that than Goldberg vs. Lesnar closing it anyway. You know what, it's probably the right decision, the build-up has been poor but for me it has the most star-power and it being the final match probably means something is going down. I'd have loved to see Wyatt vs. Orton in that slot but I was never getting my hopes up about that one.


  • Registered Users Posts: 60,579 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    Finn to step in for Seth if he's not ready also only fair since Seth injured him.


  • Registered Users Posts: 45,594 ✭✭✭✭Mr.Nice Guy


    I could see people leaving early if the main event is Orton vs Wyatt. I think that would be very flat in that spot. At least with Reigns/Taker and Goldberg/Lesnar you can be guaranteed the fans will react.


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 42,454 Mod ✭✭✭✭Lord TSC


    Orton/Wyatt was never going to be the main event.

    There's speculation that they will put Taker/Reigns in last cause they want Reigns to win, but fear that negative fan reactions could take over any subsequent matches.


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 18,287 Mod ✭✭✭✭DM_7


    I do think a Reigns win could ruin Goldberg v Brock :o

    Instead it will take over any lasting images or memories of Wrestlemania 33

    30 wouldn't be remembered as fondly if the breaking of the streak went on last, it would shadow over the whole event

    I'm generally trying to be as positive as I can be about everything coming up for Wrestlemania, but damn does a face Reigns beating Taker going on last piss me off


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,461 ✭✭✭ibFoxer


    Finn to step in for Seth if he's not ready also only fair since Seth injured him.

    Would the obvious choice here not have Joe and Seth take each other out, and have Finn do the the actual match with Trips?


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,390 ✭✭✭✭martyos121


    The only logical replacement is CM Punk, obviously. This angle between himself and Triple H has been going on for years now and we'll finally get the payoff on Sunday.

    Yes, the denial is still strong within me. :o

    I think I would go Fu**ing mental for that!! :D

    I really hope there are some surprises like the Hardys returning. Conor McGregor appearance or something like that too!

    I'd say Conor is too busy getting ready to have the head boxed off him by Mayweather to be concerned with Wrestlemania :pac:

    Vince is fúcking unbearable.

    Has anyone got the video promos for the build up the matches for Sunday?

    Not watched in a long time


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,541 ✭✭✭The White Feather


    What about a Ronda Rousey appearance?

    She could easily go into wrestling. Do a couple of Raws and the big PPVs as she is a wrestling fan.

    She won't be getting punched in the face anyway!! :pac:

    Speaking of video promos, this is one of my favourites (besides Rock/Austin WM17!)....



  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 42,454 Mod ✭✭✭✭Lord TSC

    Good Old JR
