    How did these 2 matches happen or should I even bother asking, WWE logic :rolleyes:

    The promo for this with Alexa Bliss is strange and creepy but I like it.

    'It is better to walk alone in the right direction than follow the herd walking in the wrong direction.'



  • Registered Users Posts: 60,272 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    Oh lots of questions Alexa!





    I wonder are the masks hinting at someone else debuting?


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,146 ✭✭✭Kankan14


    That promo doesn't mention one match on the card but it looks class!


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,168 ✭✭✭oneilla


    The ad looks like they were going for a Harley Quinn rip-off.

    I'm looking forward to the two main matches on this. Hope they deliver as WWE haven't had a great year match quality wise relative to the past few years.

    I am so incredibly thirsty for a Strowman title reign.

    Same. HEs come along way from his rosebud days and the awkward Wyatt family debut


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,689 ✭✭✭sky88


    He just has to win it at no mercy

    His progress in a few years of wrestling is phenomenal one of the few complete performance center success stories

    Rumours around that Taker will appear after the Cena vs Reigns match (will Cena vs Reigns go on last after Lesner vs Strowman ???)

    I know a lot of people would be against it but if love to see a Cena vs Taker match (well they fought before but that was the American bad ass taker and Cena was only starting out)


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 22,627 Mod ✭✭✭✭Bounty Hunter


    I still wish it was Cena vs Taker at Mania, now I don't like the idea of Taker returning considering they did the whole leaving the hat, coat and gloves in the ring thing after he faced off against Reigns.

    I wonder does the fact that Cena will be off for an extended period filming Bumblebee mean that Reigns is going over here. As much as people have hated on Cena in the past, reigns going over him will not make "The Big Dog" get over, instead I can imagine a Rumble esque response from the crowd with Cena taking the Rocks place and holding Reigns hand up in victory while the boos ring out around the arena.

    Thankfully it won't be the main event though Braun/Brock will be awesome!

    Those two matches being announced could do the job of keeping people who only joined up for Summerslam subscribed instead of them then cutting the cord after their free month.

    I remember how on the Raw after Mania they were saying things like "probably Undertakers last match", now Reigns comes out and says he retired him a lot, lots of heels have said similar after putting guys on the shelf when the guy was never retiring

    There was no serious talk of it being Takers last match leading up to Mania iirc, but it was being presented as such during the pre show and then it went on last

    I'm thinking now they were covering themselves in case the surgery Taker was going to have didn't work out and if it was his real retirement it's still done in a proper way, but not a definitive final way

    If he is to come back please let it be for a Reigns rematch, it's great when the crowd is truly behind one person and fully against another. If it's Cena it's just a cool marquee match that hasnt been done.


  • Registered Users Posts: 37,712 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    Actually looking forward to this ppv

    Regins vs Cena is a big deal and is a mania worthy match. I'm seeing Reigns winning. Is this the first singles between the two??? I knw they have tag matches against and with each other???

    Hoping for Strowman to win the title, can't wait for that match and I hope they let them at it and make it the monster brawl it should be

    Not too excited about Jordon vs Miz, don't want to watch Angle cry when his 'son' wins the title

    Hopefully this is the end of Balor vs Wyatt, for a rivialry which had so much potential it bombed a bit

    Where's Samoa Joe gone? I don't recall seeing him on raw the last few weeks.


  • Moderators, Business & Finance Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators Posts: 24,714 Mod ✭✭✭✭Loughc


    Where's Samoa Joe gone? I don't recall seeing him on raw the last few weeks.

    Is he not injured?


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,722 ✭✭✭SureYWouldntYa


    Where's Samoa Joe gone? I don't recall seeing him on raw the last few weeks.

    Injured, and it's hard to see where he'd fit in anyway so it could be a blessing in disguise until after this PPV where he should be back in the title scene after should Strowman win


  • Registered Users Posts: 37,712 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    Maybe Joe will interfere in one of the matches??

    Be cool if he attacked whoever wins the title match or maybe in the Cena vs Reigns match ???


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,722 ✭✭✭SureYWouldntYa


    I wouldn't mind him interfering in Reigns/Cena, the match can be done on a bigger stage some other time and it puts off WWE having Reigns beat Cena for now, and then we can see who the best Samoan joe is

    But let him stay away from the Braun/Lesnar match because we need a proper finish for that now imo


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 42,396 Mod ✭✭✭✭Lord TSC


    I really, really want a proper torch passing here, and have Brawn kill Brock like Brock killed Cena...


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


    Definitely hoping for no interference in Lesnar & Strowman's match, just let them tear each other to bits.


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 42,396 Mod ✭✭✭✭Lord TSC


    I feel as if every now and again, a moment comes where WWE can properly get behind a genuine new talent at the top of the card. Tonight, it's Brawn. He's so hot right now, the crowd react so strong, he's got the look...

    ...I really, really want them to capitlaise on this and give Brawn the god damn title.

    I have the worrying feeling they’re going to stick to their Lesnar passing the torch to Reigns at WM.

    I'm not keen on another unstoppable champ run but at least Strowman would be around.

    Kinda enjoying the feeling that most of these matches could go either way.


  • Registered Users Posts: 37,712 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    Really want Strowman to win but are they really going to let Brock lose the title at a non big 4 PPV ??

    How many matches has Brock lost since returning in 2012 ???


  • Registered Users Posts: 60,272 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    Lesnar & Strowman has screwy finish written all over it.


  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators, Society & Culture Moderators Posts: 30,850 Mod ✭✭✭✭Insect Overlord


    Midnight start, or 1:00 a.m?


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,785 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy


    3 hour show so 1am start off don't include the preshow. Keep forgetting it's on tonight.


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,102 ✭✭✭✭J. Marston


    Really don't like single show PPV's.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,146 ✭✭✭Kankan14


    Off tomorrow so I'll watch this.

    There's two big 4 PPV standard matches on this. Doesn't happen often on a 'B' PPV.

    I expect to be let down :-)


  • Registered Users Posts: 37,712 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    Whats closing the show Strowman vs Lesner or Reigns vs Cena??

    Reigns / Cena to end in a false finish, double DQ, double count-out? Can't see a decisive winner on a "B" PPV.
