    So, figure we should start this up.

    Team Hogan (Rollins, Rusev, tbc, tbc, tbc) vs Team Flair (Corbin, Orton, tbc, tbc, tbc).

    Not announced but heavily rumoured.

    WWE Championship
    Brock Lesnar vs Cain Valazquez

    Tyson Fury vs Brawn Strownman


    Those two matches are....not what I was expecting to write about this time yesterday :pac:

    Is either of the rumoured matches going to held off for Survivor Series? Or is Crown Jewel now a bigger deal than that

    Probably makes more sense to spread them over both upcoming events since they'll both attract a similar outside crowd

    I’d say the Saudis are paying fury and cains salary for them

    Fury if I recall correctly is already minted due to his exclusive deal with ESPN in the States for his boxing career. So I doubt the Saudi's have anything to do with him.

    Open to correction though.

    The dosser Strowman is going to get the Gypsy Kings hands. Not a fan of much of what's on offer lately from Raw or SD, but love Fury so this is great, the Instagram family video is gas.

    Whatever the case I love the idea that the Saudi's asked Vince to get Fury for their show.

    Tyson Fury just another reason not to watch this show.


  • Registered Users Posts: 60,274 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    Fury and the Saudis hopefully he say something stupid that upsets them.

    Cain vs Brock in a cage and Brock gets PTSD flashbacks.

    Do they have history?

    Sorry I'm not familiar with Cain :o

    Even if he’s minted they still like more money

    Also I wouldn’t be surprised if the Saudis might be trying to get fury/wilder 2 like they got Joshua Ruiz

    Is Fury actually going to wrestle though??

    It’ll prob be a gimmicked boxing match.

    The Love Island brother Tommy must be raging as he was hoping to do a Fury family reality show


  • Registered Users Posts: 60,274 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    I wonder is the Fury thing all down to the Saudi's wanting his re match with Wilder to happen in Saudi and this is part of the promotion for that.

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



    Why.

    WWE and Saudi’s pox blood money shows are fast becoming a joke.


  • Registered Users Posts: 60,274 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    I would rather watch Hogan vs Flair in a 60 minute ironman pensioners with zimmer frames dislocated hip on a pole match.

    Cain Valazquez Is the worst opponent Lesnar has had for a title match since Bob Holly in 2004.

    That was a title match?


  • Registered Users Posts: 39,416 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy


    Was that a title match?

    I don't think so. 2004 ? When did Brock break hardcore's neck ? Wasn't that 2002/03 ?


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

    Royal rumble 2004. Awful match.

    2004 Royal Rumble was for the title.


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


    Back when the Rumble title matches were often given to midcarders as the real main eventers were off in the Rumble itself.


  • Registered Users Posts: 18,073 ✭✭✭✭RobbingBandit


    Fury signed with ESPN he's still relatively unknown in the US this gives him exposure to the public plus he definitely ain't doing it for free. Vince loves meatheads like Fury he always has, it could be worse this is probably what they had in mind for Gronk, or Fury could be in there with Brock that I'd pay to see Fury potatoing Brock getting pissed and tossing Fury over his head.

    And now it’s 2019 and Vince is giving title matches to debutants. Great booking.

    Taking the UFC hat off and if you knew nothing about Flabby Cain until his appearance on Smackdown, you’d swear he was Rey’s dad who after a few Stellas wants a word with Brock for whipping his son around.

    You might be surprised how a shoot might end between Fury and Lesnar.

    Is Rollins doing double duty facing Bray and also leading Hogan's team?
