    Same every year with Shane.

    He'll get booked into a match and the internet will piss and moan, then match will be entertaining where he'll get battered and do a ridiculous spot that everyone thinks is great. Presumably Braun is throwing him off the pirate ship this year.

    We're getting the Braun vs Shane match at Fastlane sunday. So Shane will win that with help from some big guy with the rematch at mania

    WWE doing Vaccine ads in States this is coming from a company that ignored Covid for long and its talent are still super spreaders down in NXT.

    The Hurt Business not even upset about losing the belts and totter of back to the changing rooms as AJ comes out with Omos to challenge the New Day for the titles at WM.

    Not even a Fastlane rematch

    Dunno if anyone heard but they booked Orton/Bliss at Fastlane...

    Haha don't give them ideas Liz because they genuinely might do it.

    Just listening to Bryan Alvarez the other day and thought he made a good point. The big Wrestlemania attraction match has gone from being the likes of Undertaker, Lesnar and Goldberg to this year being Orton/Wyatt. And this is the year they've split it into 2 nights!

    And this is the year they've split it into 2 nights!

    Last year was split into 2 nights as well.


  • Registered Users Posts: 698 ✭✭✭ princemuzzy


    genuinely havent a clue how anyone watches anymore. ive dipped in and out while working from home but by god the storylines are shocking. they haven't a clue how to build and finish.

    Normally no matter how bad it is i get suckered in from rumble to mania every year but i cant actually bring myself to watch this ****. its wcw level bad

    will wrestlemania have fans this year? are they splitting it over 2 nights to get more people to buy tickets ?

    Ye but this year they're trying to get 45,000 fans into a stadium both nights and last year they didn't have to sell 1 ticket.

    If I was better at video editing I'd make a "My Way" package for Orton/Bliss.

    "You never, ever burn another woman's demon clown alive. Bliss warned him that if anything happened to Wyatt, it would be Orton's ass!"

    Truly the feud of our generation.

    Once again they show up Fastlane to be utterly and completely pointless.

    Drew VS Lashley confirmed for Mania - why not give people a semblance of doubt and have winner of Sheamus/Drew at Fastlane face Lashley? Could they not wait a week for the Drew promo about 17 years/16 years? Why is Miz still hanging around the feud like a bad smell?

    Why is Sheamus attacking Lashley... with four guys vying for the title what used to happen in olden days was they'd do the Fatal 4 Way ala WM 2000 but Sheamus and Miz will likely cease to be relevant post Fastlane.

    AJ Styles and Omos (is that how you spell it?) challenging The New Day for Mania - we will likely get a tag title rematch at Fastlane now for The Hurt Business, with absolutely no chance New Day lose the belts.

    If they canned Fastlane tomorrow it would make zero literal difference to any storyline. The Bliss/Orton match could be done on any episode of Raw, and Smackdown could do similar with Reigns/Bryan. If Mania (which is shaping up to be awful and I feel absolutely no hype for it as an aside) wasn't on next month I'd be cancelling my sub again to the Network.

    Would it have been so hard to have Bad Bunny lose the title? He could lose to a heel so Truth's popularity isn't hurt among Bunny fans. Especially since he took a guitar shot a few minutes later.


  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators Posts: 48,673 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Necro


    Oh I hadn't gotten that far yet, just passed it.

    Again the Bad Bunny thing - way to sell Drew as a monster WWE, Miz is up and swinging guitars around like nothing happened him. Could this not have waited till Fastlane too?

    The Braun stuff is now annoying me too - they just took one of their big monsters and made him look like an absolute piece of trash against.... Shane by himself?

    No help or anything just a camera shot or two, this feud is officially awful and rushed when it doesn't need to be! There's still 4 weeks until Mania FFS!


    Loved Asuka coming back and making bits of Shayna and Nia, seems like it's the one thing they did right all night.

    yawn, jaysus smackdown is so far ahead.

    I quite like the new intensity Drew has adapted


  • Registered Users Posts: 22,360 ✭✭✭✭ J. Marston


    Hate how over-produced entrances are.

    Rhea looks like a killer but there's all these unnecessary bells and whistles with her entrance that just make her look goofy. She should be strutting down to the ring and that's it.


  • Registered Users Posts: 31,684 ✭✭✭✭ PTH2009


    Jesus it's easy to get a Mania title match nowadays

    Rhea Ripley asked for it and got it


  • Registered Users Posts: 31,684 ✭✭✭✭ PTH2009


    Jeff Hardy getting lost in the midcard, Miz will pick up the win against him here


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,479 ✭✭✭✭ ShaneU


    Who's the Irish guy interviewing Sheamus


  • Registered Users Posts: 31,684 ✭✭✭✭ PTH2009


    Another 3 weeks of this type of wrestlecrap

    Bray Wyatt seems to have slimed down a bit


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,647 ✭✭✭ The White Wolf


    So Rhea walks into the shop and gets a title shot at WM straight off the bat, where she's likely going to win.

    They really don't learn.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,537 ✭✭✭ RollieFingers


    Reading that they added a train noise sound effect to Strowman's running attack. LOL.
