    Im guessing the reason they are having AJ vs Bryan on SD instead of Backlash is because they dont want it to overshadow " the greatest wrestling match ever"

    ssshh that never happened

    Lashley and Drew were training there asses off and stayed at home and didnt have any contact before they both returned to WWE.

    And wasnt MVP also involved as Lashleys manager :pac:

    The women's match triple threat yet, after Charlotte beat Asuka?


  • Registered Users Posts: 60,439 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    The Greatest Wrestling Match Ever will have some way to go to even be the best WWE match of the weekend after Bryan and AJ on Smackdown.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,187 ✭✭✭✭B.A._Baracus


    Greatest march ever? Me bollocks :pac:
    I get it, It's just a name to sell a match. But is it really the right call? :p

    What match could have been called that going in of all of pro wrestling history? Hogan and rock maybe. Not Orton and edge tho.

    Melina vs Alicia Fox.




  • I'm more surprised that they used the word 'wrestling'.


  • Registered Users Posts: 38,030 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    Charlie started all this greatest match stuff

    Anyone think any titles will change hands ?

    Will Ottis be smart enough for a successful cash in ?


  • Registered Users Posts: 60,439 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    I'd love if they went with a 3 second match won by school boy rollup win by Orton.


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,893 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy


    Poor Charly for being made say that in the first place. And just seemed so forced. Especially when hear Cole say something like "Some are calling it the greatest match ever".
    They'll probably equate a great match with a long match and just really drag out with multiple RKO attempts

    Spear into an RKO

    Be nice if they ended the current programme here but have a feeling it will drag on into Summerslam

    Edge might not even face someone else in 2020

    Hopefully the iconics or Alexa and Nikki win the tag belts and get them as far away as possible from Sasha banks. I mean if she loses tonight it'll will have been considered a long reign. I hope after tonight Bayley concentrates on being the smackdown champ again and with what looks like a feud with Sasha I hope Bayley wins the feud.


  • Registered Users Posts: 38,030 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    I imagine the greatest match of all time will be the main event


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 38 Genetic Jackhammer


    Is there even a point of watching this ppv or any ppv from the wwe anymore as they just repeat the matches the next night on RAW and the following Smackdown 80% of the time. Also since this has already been recorded and the writing team has been sacked and Prichard taking over i have a feeling this ppv will be very quickly forgotten about.


  • Registered Users Posts: 38,030 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    Pre show 11pm
    Main show 12am-3am

    The whole show has not been pre taped btw. I think it's the edge vs Orton match that's been pre taped. Even edge thought the title greatest ever was a joke at first.


  • Registered Users Posts: 60,439 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    Looks like the show was taped alright and confirmed by HHH.

    A thought that Miz and Morrison will win, to enable Otis and Tucker to cash it occurred to me during the week and I can’t shake it..

    WWE are clearly out of ideas, would at least have people discuss the product, despite it being silly

    possibly the fiend might appear and cost Braun


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,893 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy


    Miz and Morrison's new song makes me think of Joe Hendry.

    Maybe this won't be the Greatest Wrestling Match Ever. Maybe it's just a tribute


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,129 ✭✭✭✭J. Marston


    Hey hey hey ho ho, Universal champion has got to go!

    What a banger.


  • Registered Users Posts: 39,679 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy


    Sasha and Bayley retain the tag titles. Shame.


  • Registered Users Posts: 38,030 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    no backstage meltdown for Sasha


  • Registered Users Posts: 38,030 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    Sheamus a dub out and out
