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

    Rhea Ripley asked for it and got it

    It’s real easy when the former number one contender forces the companies hand to release her BF from his contract with them.

    Bray Wyatt seems to have slimed down a bit

    I thought that as well when he stood over Orton while Bliss covered and then I wondered was that even Bray under the mask and boiler suit.

    Plus, catches Covid two weeks out from the show....

    Haven't watched it yet but I expected Rhipley to go straight into the title picture anyways, where else would she go really. Outside of Charlotte who is a legit challenger to Asuka?

    100%

    Rhea has the benefit of not being fed to Charlotte in a year, and not utterly neglected like every other woman on the Raw roster.

    She's the accidental benefactor of the fact Charlotte is the only woman ever built up on whatever show she is on....

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

    Yeah I heard that. Next he'll throw on a Thomas the Tank Engine costume.

    Why was Alexa declared the winner at Fastlane when there was obvious interference from The Fiend?

    As someone who doesn't listen to the radio much these days, are Bad Bunny songs played on it?
    Miz and Morrison aren't exactly Max Caster

    Huge in the US apparently, I'd never heard of him before the Rumble though :pac:


  • Registered Users Posts: 54,957 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    I think Bad Bunny is a major Spotify and streaming star rather than a traditional radio.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 222 ✭✭ Batattackrat


    I'd prefer he fiend as a Jason/mankind/freddy kruger style character rather than all this fire and burnt alive crap.


  • Registered Users Posts: 54,957 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    So Bad Bunny vs the Miz.


    No Morrison wrestling.

    More importantly no Damian Priest wrestling.

    I thought the whole idea of using a celebrity was to get over a WWE Star over and push the hell out of them to make them a real player.

    Using Priest as a valet to Bad Bunny is a total disgrace really.

    I wonder was the original plan for Charlotte to beat Asuka at WM (again) then Rhea debuts the Monday night after WM, challenges Charlotte and beats her for the title for the post mania pop? God knows Charlotte needs another meaningless short title reign again.

    It’s the worst Wrestlemania card in a long long time. Probably the worst.

    I had to look up who bad bunny is, how did Miz end up with this match, good god, he deserves to be in a better match then this

    Id be shocked if it doesnt get changed into a tag match either before or during the match.

    I mean this with the most respect possible, but you're showing off an insane level of ignorance there.

    I don't know Bad Bunny either, but having looked him up, it's pretty clear the guy is probably one of the biggest celebs WWE have ever gotten. He's not really known over here, I guess, because he's very much a Latin superstar, which rarely translates over here.

    But the guy doesn't stumble into the Superbowl Halftime show with Shakira and J.Lo without being a proper superstar.

    Its quite possibly a massive sign of respect to Miz that he was the one chosen for this match up....

    Exactly this. I haven't a clue who he is either one google shows he has 30 million followers on Instagram and is the most played artist on Spotify. That alone tells me he's a fairly big deal.

    Almost the whole roster would kill for Miz's spot right now.

    Plus it might get more people to watch Miz and Mizzes or whatever its called

    Didnt mean to show ignorance at all but i see your point, i was more thinking of he was champion less then a month ago and now he's nowhere near it or IC picture.

    I read Bugs Bunny vs. Miz :o

    Morrison needs a title push imho, his return has been as Miz's sidekick, I think he needs to break away

    Hopefully Bryan is added to the SD world title match

    Cesaro vs. Rollins could steal the show

    Yeah I got the network back for the rumble but I'm starting to wonder will I bother keeping it even for Mania now. It really is awful and I say that as someone not particularly attached to any company right now.

    I have no problem in saying WWE is at the bottom currently. At least Impact and NWA wouldn't try to insult your intelligence or condescend.

    So Bunny v Miz is one on one? Thought a tag match was a shoe in

    Surely bray v Randy will be a FFH match? A straight up match will be pure car crash. Although it seems that’s what they’re going for with this angle


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 41,415 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Lord TSC


    I’d not be surprised if it’s either turned to a tag match or given a stop next week.

    Yeah sure they're advertising the Smackdown main event as one on one when we know bloody well Bryan is getting added somehow... or we hope.

    He will get the WWE huge media attention, he won a grammy

    Ah lads, I've been catching up on the Alexa Bliss/Randy Orton/Bray Wyatt stuff. Anyone defending it or saying they enjoy it has to be having a laugh. Some of the worst stuff I've ever seen. Terrible


  • Registered Users Posts: 48,862 ✭✭✭✭ Lithium93_


    As of yesterday. Bad Bunny is in the Top 10 of the most played on Spotify, 13th with most monthly listeners just going by this alone.

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_most-streamed_artists_on_Spotify

    TL; DR 1 - Not my cup of coffee either musically.

    TL; DR 2 - Someone in WWE absolutely had their eye on the ball. So credit where it's due.

    So can we call it WWE's equivalent to The Room? :pac:

    So is The Fiend filling the Denny/creepy bastard role? :pac:

    I guess since he didn't get to touch her before Bray appeared on Monday, Randy's lines would be
    "I did not hit her. It's not true. It’s bullsh!t, I did not hit her. I did nooot. Oh hi, Bray!"
