    Think Ronda/Shayna won't be a standard match either from the way they kept talking about it being a fight instead of a match.



  • Registered Users Posts: 85,597 ✭✭✭✭JP Liz V1


    Apparently Theory's US title match against Rey or Santos is going to be on SD

    KO, Liv and Raquel injured so who for Rhea, and singles match for Sami or solo handicap tag titles defence?



  • Moderators, Music Moderators Posts: 14,897 Mod ✭✭✭✭Furious-Red


    I think a handicap match for one batch of the tag titles could be a good way to split the belts.



  • Registered Users Posts: 38,015 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    The Usos got an amazing reaction after the MITB win but not sure would it get a similar reaction if Jey dethrones Roman. Solo turning on Roman helping Jey would be electric saying that

    A cash in is definitely extremely possible at this event. More likely be Iyo then Priest



  • Moderators, Music Moderators Posts: 14,897 Mod ✭✭✭✭Furious-Red


    Will they have Jimmy cost Jey the match or will they actually have Roman lose? I think it would be a good idea for Jey to win but then have Priest cash in on Jey straight after the match? You set up the breakdown in JD as everyone will have a title bar Finn or Priest gets kicked out as he heads to SD.

    In the tribal combat match am I right that no Anoa'i family can interfere, if so could Jey win by DQ maybe a new Heyman guy debut, was thinking Bron call up if done with NXT or even Waller who seems to want The Rock, I would love to see Jey win the title(s) but Rhodes Vs. Reigns story ending at next year's WM for the titles is the latest online speculation rumours

    We now have a Battle Royal and no Trish Becky match



  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 51,214 Mod ✭✭✭✭Necro


    Tribal rules is no DQ and no countout they said on Raw so there won't be a DQ finish.



  • Registered Users Posts: 60,431 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    Fightful saying Trish vs Becky was pulled because there wasn't enough time on the show for it.



  • Registered Users Posts: 39,677 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy


    Shift the battle royale then. The kick off show being specific.



  • Registered Users Posts: 85,597 ✭✭✭✭JP Liz V1


    It's a 4 hour ppv yes? Then yes have the battle royale on the kick off as suggested above

    I can't see Becky being happy that her match is off the card and Logan is on, she isn't a fan

    Raquel vs. Rhea also apparently pulled over time

    Wonder are we getting an extra long Roman vs Jey match or maybe a cousin of theres is making an apperence ?



  • Registered Users Posts: 28,881 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy


    8 matches announced so far.

    I probably wasn't listening to hear it, but I didn't realise that Shayna/Ronda is a MMA rules match. Don't know what that means in WWE terms.



  • Registered Users Posts: 23,124 ✭✭✭✭J. Marston


    Faux-MMA, probably with rounds, point-scoring and all. The crowd will shít all over it, rightly. If they wanted to watch MMA, they'd go to a UFC show.



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,794 ✭✭✭ebbsy


    No way Reigns is losing to anybody other than Cody.


    The tag team scene is threadbare as well.



  • Registered Users Posts: 85,597 ✭✭✭✭JP Liz V1


    Will Jey be the new chief champion




  • Registered Users Posts: 85,597 ✭✭✭✭JP Liz V1


    If the "big return" is Bray, I'll be disappointed

    I'd love it be Big E or Orton



  • Registered Users Posts: 38,015 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    Dreading to think about all the 'personal promos' Cody and Bray will do leading to a match

    Was Bray close to Dusty ? One direction they could go



  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 51,214 Mod ✭✭✭✭Necro


    Good jaysus please don't mix Cody up in that wrestlecrap Bray offers😂

    Ricochet and Logan Paul kick off the show tonight, in part I think as he wants to fly straight to his bros fight against Diaz later tonight.



  • Registered Users Posts: 19,082 ✭✭✭✭Liam O


    "Kid Rock is still relevant, right?"

    Oh Vince.



  • Registered Users Posts: 38,015 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    Happy viewing all

    On the bus home from Dublin, never beat a big 4

    Not a fan of his other stuff but there's no denying Logan Paul gets wrestling.



  • Registered Users Posts: 38,015 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    TMO VAR needed ha



  • Moderators, Music Moderators Posts: 14,897 Mod ✭✭✭✭Furious-Red


    Brock wanting to head off early?



  • Registered Users Posts: 23,124 ✭✭✭✭J. Marston


    Cody always looks the part. Some of the best entrance attire in wrestling.



  • Registered Users Posts: 85,597 ✭✭✭✭JP Liz V1


    Kairi Sane has agreed with WWE to return, Asuka match helper tonight?



  • Moderators, Music Moderators Posts: 14,897 Mod ✭✭✭✭Furious-Red


    Not a fan of these kinda Lesnar matches, constant count out attempts and his opponent knocked down just waiting around etc.



  • Registered Users Posts: 38,015 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    Cody must be winning



  • Registered Users Posts: 38,015 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    Finally Cody beats Brock



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,082 ✭✭✭ThePott


    Gonna be very interested to see what they do with Cody from here.

    Show of respects in wrestling are so overplayed but the Brock one felt like a big deal cause he so rarely does it.

    Not sure the Brock acknowledgement was needed as it kind of breaks his own aura. A nod would have been enough.
