    How many of those title matches actually feel earned?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,678 ✭✭✭lawlolawl


    Clearly this is the card that The WWE Universe™ wants!


  • Registered Users Posts: 362 ✭✭nannerby


    Samoa joe v Richochet might be good the rest of the card looks awful.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,678 ✭✭✭lawlolawl


    Apparently there are ads running in Japan that have
    Corbin as champ
    .

    Sometimes it's the poorer looking cards that surprise you . I know you can't really compare it to UFC but the amount of times I've looked at a UFC ppv and thought meh to then be surprised at how good it was is crazy. Though this is more or less a C PPV imo because of Super Showdown, so they better pull a few aces out of their sleeves to build up for Extreme Rules and Summer slam or think about dropping June and December PPVs to be replaced by the Saudi Arabia shows.

    To be fair, it was just a scoopsman on another forum I'm on so it may be complete fiction.

    It still wouldn't surprise me though.


  • Registered Users Posts: 60,270 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    To be honest I’d be ok with that if it were true.


    The product can’t be any worse than it is now.

    Here's a video of everyone being moved in front of the camera to make it look like people showed up to this disaster:

    In WWEs defence the doors could have opened 5 mins before that photo was taken. Mania is half dead during preshows too.

    Cruiserweight match was good, pity that they are stuck on 205 and not used more on the main shows.

    From headlining WM to the curtain jerker at Stomping Ground in 8 weeks later.

    People are guessing she might have a role to play in Rollins/Corbin because of the match placement.


  • Registered Users Posts: 39,407 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy


    Well at least becky didn't lose. The name Stomping Ground sounds like it came from the red rooster version of PPV names.

    Well Cole mentioned rollins after Becky won so you might be right.

    On Busted Open Radio they were discussing the possibility that she'll be the special guest referee,


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


    They're quick to point out how fast Lacey tapped. They must want to make the Disarmher look very strong.


  • Registered Users Posts: 39,407 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy


    Has Paul Heyman been eating his weight in food recently ? He's added some timber just looking at his interview with Kayla.


  • Registered Users Posts: 39,407 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy


    Sami looks ****ing stupid. He looks like a hobo.

    Big E still isn't ready to go then.


  • Registered Users Posts: 39,407 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy


    I know this isn't related to the PPV going on now, but has anyone who has rewatched stuff from the attitude era with earphones notice who much the wrestlers talked to each other and it was audible ?


  • Registered Users Posts: 39,407 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy

    Looks like he can go given how he's going in the ring now.

    I want to see Joe catch Rick O Shea in the middle of one of his flippy moves and just choke him out.
