    Really any need for the specific stip for a flag match. We already have Mahal using the I hate america gimmick.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,288 ✭✭✭Virtanen


    They had a whole flag-based promo package for the PPV last year, so I assume it'll be the same this year

    Nakamura vs Corbin is an odd one. I suppose a loss wont hurt Corbin, but I hate when MITB winners lose constantly.

    Nak cant be losing to Corbin either unless someone interfers. Id rather these two be kept apart.

    And Owens. The top three heels are all running the same gimmick really :/

    I'd imagine Nak wins, wouldn't be shocked if Corbin cashes in to move towards Orton/Corbin, and then Nak can face either Styles (more likely) or Cena at Summerslam.

    Very meh ppv

    Looking forward too styles vs KO and nakamura vs Corbin. The punjabi prison match could be a bit of a cluster****, I expect Orton too win the title back but Corbin will cash in straight after the match

    Think I'll watch the first hour and then game of thrones and finish the rest off the next day

    Orton will be outside of the punjabi prison at that point though. Baron will have a hard time getting him back over two cages and into the ring lol

    I'm actually looking forward to the Punjabi Prison Match as we have two guys who aren't oversized or a gimmick and can work a bit.


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,101 ✭✭✭✭J. Marston


    It's Orton though. The big spot in the match will probably be a choke hold on top of the prison.

    Has the guy not representing America ever lost a flag match?

    And what's with the regressing these days? Kendo stick on a pole, flag match. Bra and panties incoming?

    Ugh, I hope not. We're far removed from those days, thankfully. That type of titillation has no place in today's WWE.





    Alexa vs Sasha please.

    So Cena winning the biggest lock possible?

    first PPV match back since Mania in a flag match cmon you know Johnny boy is going to represent the good ol US of A and have Ol Glory flying high against that Foreign threat from Bulgaria. What better way for him to prepare for a run at Jinder "You Americans hate me cos I'm different" Mahal and the title match at SS too?


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,721 ✭✭✭SureYWouldntYa


    So Cena winning the biggest lock possible

    I'd be very surprised if it was anything other than a Cena win before just announcing he's facing Jinder because Cena

    I think it's fair to say that Randy Orton vs Jinder Mahal will easily have the best Punjabi prison match in the history of the gimmick. Now that's not a high bar, and Batista should have been knighted for wrestling against khali in a match that required climbing and agility.


  • Registered Users Posts: 60,264 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    No tag matches?


  • Registered Users Posts: 679 ✭✭✭daithi1989

    Uso v New Day for titles

    Breezango to find out the truth as well.

    is there any point to nreaking them up? Seem to be getting over atm


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


    2 teams broken up in the space of a few weeks. Be stupid to break up another, especially in the same way as one of those teams, with the sneak attacks

    Damn those two for getting over on their own. Break them up.

    Nah they put it up on Instagram instead :pac:

    I seen Cena cut a promo on the flag match saying there was a finish line for the flag match which has sucked the enthusiasm I had to see that.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,234 ✭✭✭ayatollah


    Match of the night already??

    New day v usos was a cracker

    Yeah and the Aidan English vs tye Dillinger was a decent pro wrestling match aswell. It's been a very decent start to the PPV.


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,586 ✭✭✭✭Clegg


    Never thought I'd see the day where a match between AJ Styles and Kevin Owens may not be the best on the card.

    New Day/Usos was great


  • Registered Users Posts: 39,404 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy


    Maybe it's just me but I don't get the baron corbains push.


  • Registered Users Posts: 39,404 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy


    I know it's unlikely but come on Becky. A credit to the parish as a person and as a pro wrestler.

    That promo was weird. Like, they are doing a thing where it's like they are saying Naomi is a fighting champion, but then she doesn't get a match.
