    Daniel Bryan returns to wrestling after 3 years and I have no interest at all in his first PPV match back because of that lump.

    Fair fúcks to you, WWE. That's takes some doing.

    With this following after Greatest Royal Rumble, which followed an endurance Wrestlemania 34, I think I'm tapping out on watching PPV's for a bit, will check in on live threads the morning/afternoon after.

    It's just overkill..

    GRR was only a house show advertisement for Saudi Arabia. Backlash is a proper PPV and in the spot of one of the better annual shows they do.


  • Registered Users Posts: 37,708 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    Meh prob end up staying up for it

    Cant see many shocks but I can see Shin winning the title with help from that sumo guy from the GRR

    Reigns will prob beat Joe and Rollins retain

    Bryan confident that his wrestling skills will win out.

    Expect 10 minutes of Cass ragdolling him around before winning.

    WiFi on the fritz here so probably won’t be watching it unless it sorts itself out. Not that I’ll miss much more than likely.


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,783 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy


    So I'm confused. What does Reigns vs Joe have to do with the Universal title? Since Reigns hasn't fought a PPV this year without the title involved in some way. :)


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


    Theres some good matchs on the show but very little intrest in watching the show


  • Registered Users Posts: 37,708 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    Having a few drinks but I'll prob skip and watch after work 2morrow


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


    Paige looks good tonight.

    In the same boat.. gonna watch the 1st hour and head to bed.


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,608 ✭✭✭✭skipper_G


    Really enjoyed that opener, great match


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


    Ok that 1st match was great no ones topping that time for bed.

    The ic title is so much more important than the universal title right now


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,392 ✭✭✭✭Turtyturd


    Good match...I really hate that kingslayer moniker for Rollins.


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


    Alexa is going for her fifth title reign? Mental.

    Since been called up theyve win titles like charlotte is on 5 sasha 4 and alexa 4 that is far too much in a relatively short amount of time

    Crowd are so into this one they're doing a Rusev Day chant


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,608 ✭✭✭✭skipper_G


    Bootleg Bob Dylan and The Booty Boys. Love Rusev :D


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,332 ✭✭✭✭martyos121


    If I was Bobby Roode, I’d be asking to be released in the morning. They’ve absolutely fcuking ruined him, he’s a heel through and through yet they insist on booking him as the cheesiest, blandest babyface imaginable.


  • Registered Users Posts: 573 ✭✭✭nazmoalex


    Roode got the pay off in a skit with New Day Rusev and Elias...... and you are saying he should quit.. c'mon man. That was the best he could hope for in that scenario.

    That segment was better than the last 2 matches

    Yes, that’s exactly what I’m saying. He should never be in segments like that in the first place, unless he’s in Elias’ position (minus the guitar obv). He was a legitimate, main event heel in NXT and they’ve completely switched his character since he was brought up to the main roster. He’s terrible at what he’s doing right now, nobody wants to see him going through the motions as a face, all he is a flashy entrance at this point (you were spot on Dolph! :D).


  • Registered Users Posts: 573 ✭✭✭nazmoalex


    That match was worse than that previous segment. Daniel Bryan should have squashed that giant idiot. He's brutal. This beat down is a joke. Great heat bulid, but where's this goon gonna take it?


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,524 ✭✭✭Deeper Blue


    Cass is a tag team wrestler at best, he looks lost in there with someone like Bryan. Having said that, if they're trying to push the guy I thought having him tap so quickly made him look fairly weak


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


    Jesus, Carmella's screeching is head-wrecking.


  • Registered Users Posts: 573 ✭✭✭nazmoalex


    Carmella for the win... roll up 101


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


    Except for the askua match charlotte hasnt been great in ring since she switched to smackdown


  • Registered Users Posts: 573 ✭✭✭nazmoalex


    Sensible booking for once, Carmella had to retain there


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,927 ✭✭✭✭titan18


    Well that was a stupid finish

    Double kick to the balls to end a no dq match that has to be a first...
