    Was expecting Cena to maybe have a chance to win the title but lights go out and Gong. Taker doesnt appear and Cena is rolled up by Styles

    but with the latest rumours i dont think that will happen and
    Rey Mysterio
    is not a heel/antihero and not cost someone the title ???

    is the title match an elimination match ?? rest of the card is meh and pure Nakamura has nothing to do

    He can still lose at Fastlane without anyone costing him, come out on the next Raw/SD and say for sure he has no road to Mania and then he can get interrupted by Taker or that new rumour either

    Overall though nothing interests me on the card whatsoever, not even worth a fast forward watch imo

    Have a weird feeling were not getting a Styles win on Sunday and in fact it will be Cena who wins the title and at mania we wont get our dream 1 on 1 match but a triple threat for the title Cena vs Styles vs Nakamura but
    Cenas schudule up to Mania doesnt mention him being on any SD events and might be a bit odd the WWE champion been on Raw and not SD ???

    can see KO vs Zayn and maybe Corbin vs Ziggler coming from this 6 pack challenge match going into mania ???

    i was thinking they might do a title switch to try get fans off the scent of a taker/cena match

    A nice touch would be cena is about to do a finisher on someone for the win and the lights go out bong bong but nobody appears and then someone rolls cena up for the win but thats logic wwe wont do if they are going with Cena vs Taker

    Meltzer is 95% sure the match is happening but he has been wrong a few times

    It's a bit cheap for Taker to cost Cena the title because why?

    I think more likely is he will lose at Fastlane, have nothing for Wrestlemania, and revisit the Undertaker scenario again. Use his mic skills to try and draw Taker out. It could go on for weeks, building anticipation until Undertaker finally shows.

    Taker could feel disrespected in some way by Cena and feels the challenge was a bit cheeky

    doesn't have to make sense sure Taker Siad SD was his yard and then never appeared on the show after that and then that Raw 25 promo

    just have to wait and see. The rest of the fastlane card is meh. The Orton vs Roode match has potential but we knw Jinder will end up interfering

    There is 0% chance of that match making the show, to the Andre The Giant Battle Royal for them both

    Don't forget this starts at 12am (pre-show 11pm) as a result of the clocks going forward in the US this weekend

    Same goes for all WWE programming until we put ours forward on the 25th


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,730 ✭✭✭SureYWouldntYa


    It's poor when one of the only plusses of the card is the fact it ends an hour earlier than normal

    Stop that, stop that right now.

    It is something they'd do. He'll still "look strong" since it's a six man match and the odds are hugely stacked against him.

    handy it's on at 12 Instead of 1am


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,150 ✭✭✭✭J. Marston


    Usos vs New Day should be great but we've seen it before.

    No interest in the clusterfúck main event. Styles pins Ziggles or Corbin.

    That women's tag match barely belongs on Smackdown.

    Shíte looking PPV.

    Could be on at 11 and I still wouldn't be bothered, think it's more indicative of WWE Creative, they've had how many weeks to drum up interest for the PPV. It's just a glorified episode of Smackdown Live.

    At least this will be the last ever brand exclusive PPV.

    Smackdown creative more than wwe as raw has been quite good the last while

    I think this sums tonight up

    I can't believe that seeing Ziggler in a title match used to excite me.....he needs to go away now.

    Unfortunately he was just never utilised properly


  • Registered Users Posts: 38,151 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    did Rusev slim down a bit ?


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,023 ✭✭✭seandotcomm


    Nakamura should be steamrolling over someone tonight if there's to be any sort of credibility to him winning at Mania


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


    That was a great match to start off

    Again just shows how wasted rusev is at the minute

    Great match but the outcome was so obvious.

    And as for the match now I can’t remember the last time Orton didn’t bore me in a one on one match.

    Yep orton is just the most meh wrestler. There was a brief upturn when he teamed the wyatts but that went downhill very drastically

    Christ Orton as US champion. Boring.
