    I agree, it’s not the best possible card in my eyes considering the roster, but it’s more interesting than last years. Each top match has something to draw you in. The undercard is very thrown together but the top matches all give you a reason to watch.
    The undercard is gonna be nothing but toilet breaks and matches that have their time drastically cut though.

    Do people really think Undertaker has a chance here? I can't imagine even he would want to be winning here.

    It's not the undertakers problem that Roman has been booked like ****e. That's on Vinces problem for making a mess of a guy who could be huge and over in a good way but isn't.

    I could imagine him winning after Roman dominating, similar to the HHH match at 27, followed by a Roman heel turn

    Only real way I could see it happening, in reality we'll get a match where Roman mostly dominates but Taker has a flurry near the end followed by the usual Roman things to end the match

    I can't see taker winning at all.

    If they do go with him I would say Roman dominates goes for one too many superman punches gets caught in a hello gate and passes out so Romans not pinned or taps

    Goldberg and Brock is a weird one to figure out the finish on as the latter surely goes over in what will also surely be a quick match.

    How does Goldberg go down in that short period of time, bearing in mind Goldberg won't let himself look weak.

    Michael's said on a podcast he turned down a match with Styles at Wrestlemania 33. I can understand the reasons why he did but it's a pity we won't ever see that.

    I don't think the Austin finish works with Roman. The fans liked Austin and he was getting over. I'll say it again the guy has huge potential and a great look but he needs to be a heel(a full heel) as he seems to be just cocky now.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,767 ✭✭✭Ben Gadot


    I can respect Michaels for making a decision and sticking to it, he clearly learned from watching Flair continuing way beyond his due date.

    But I wish he'd stop talking about it especially the way he's spun it here, as if Styles was dying for it and he had to pass on it.

    A little bit of the old ego shining through here.

    Veering off topic briefly, I fupping despise those with a burning hatred who use this, especially grown fupping men, I wonder to myself, are they grown men or teenage fupping girls..

    Back on track, Shane/AJ will happen, there won't be any last minute replacements, besides it's AJ, he'll get a solid 10-15 minutes from Shane..


  • Registered Users Posts: 38,209 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    So Samoa Joe doesn't have a match or Is he facing Sami Zayn ???

    With only 1 week to go I can't see Balor returning (he's a dead cert to return at the post mania Raw)

    Outdoor stadium again this year. For some reason, I thought it was indoors.

    It's weird watching wrestling during the day. Some of the entrances feel like they lose some oomph. If Naomi does come back, her entrance will be pretty awful!

    Only a bit of it will be during daylight, WM31 was in a different time zone so it stayed bright almost the whole way through. WM24 in the same stadium was pitch black after an hour, if I recall correctly. Anyone that needs darkness for their entrance like Naomi, Wyatt or Taker just has to go on after 1am our time.

    Makes me wonder if Sheamus will get sunburnt if he's on the pre-show? And with that dumb thought, I'm off to sleep. :o

    Roman is absolutely the odds on favorite, which in itself is enough of an interesting change from every Taker mania match in at least a decade. But there is the not unreasonable possibility that they'll give Taker a weak win, and that's enough to book something the crowd can get into.

    Roman winning to leave the window open for taker to either retire or do some kind of last stand next year is the right move for sure, mind. Taker winning leaves no new opportunities of interest at all that I can see but with how desperate they are to get people liking Roman you'd never know what they'd do on the day against a beloved veteran.

    Taker winning and then Roman destroying him would do far, far more for Reign's character. It would give him genuine heel heat. If he just wins, and they try to push him as a face, it's going to be Xpac Heat.

    No match for Joe or Zayn but that doesn't bother me. Shouldn't be a match at Mania for the sake of a match. I'd imagine the two will clash in the Battle Royal, and wouldn't be surprised if both are run-ins during the HHH/Rollins match.


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,992 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy


    Shouldn't be a match for the sake of a match? How often do they have someone come out complaining about not getting a match just for someone to come out and beat them? It's a good way for a new/returning person to debut, but if it's just gonna be Big Show or someone it's pointless.

    I think the Battle Royal will be between Harper and Strowman. Have they faced off in the ring since the draft?


  • Registered Users Posts: 38,209 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    i wonder will Strowman cost taker the match which will lead to Taker vs Strowman at Summerslam ??

    Taker didnt look the best on Raw the other night but he is in the 50's but with the right opponents could have a few more short matches

    Austin, The Rock, Hogan, Michaels, Hart, Flair, Sting & Angle all get involved to stop Roman beating Taker but all fail and Roman stands tall over the fall bodies of legends.

    Then goes on to beat Brock and Goldberg for the Universal title at the end of the night

    Roman clambering up a pile of legends to do his stupid wolf howl is an amazing image.

    "Bring me more!" He yells.

    Vince enters, with a tear in his eye says "Roman, there are no more. You're the Big Dog. You're my Big Dog."

    They kiss.

    Fireworks.

    Fin.

    You know they'd intentionally miss and he'd go over though.

    I see that construction of the stage in Orlando is already under way.

    I know it's weird but I adore stages, trons, lighting rigs, ramps etc. I used to love waiting to see the different arrangements for the PPVs back in the day. They'd always be so creative and apt.

    It's a pity that this part of the production died when the show equipped for HD in 2008.

    It's all part of the excitement for Mania though. I love seeing the early stage photos of the set up, and then seeing it in all it's glory on the night
