    Not sure what they could do at this stage that could counteract it. They could bring Becky back which would be big but nothing compared to Punk last night.

    A Cena heel turn would be huge but kind of hard to see how it would work

    Finn Balor returning as the Demon as he pissed off at Cena

    Finn Balor returning would have absolutely no klout outside the WWE world to be honest.

    It would honestly be a near impossible task due to the length of time Punk was away etc. I actually don’t think I’ve ever seen as much hunger for people wanting to see someone who is still likely able to wrestle at a top level.

    Lesnar etc wouldn’t tip the scales.

    They should probably go with the flow and concentrate on long-term better booking.

    The only ONLY thing o could imagine doing what they’d want would be a Conor McGregor type appearance which ain’t gonna happen anyway.

    Becky, Brock, Rock. That's about all they could utilise which says more about the WWE product than anything.

    And only Rock coming back would come near to matching that last night.

    None are happening though.

    There isn't one person connected to the WWE that could hold a live crowd in the palm of their hand for 20 minutes straight of a non scripted promo and leave them wanting more promo time, Hell there is barely anyone there that could hold a live WWE crowds attention for a 20 minute match.

    WWE should not try to counter it in any way they need to focus on there own product instead of trying to hotshot old guy returns or celebrity guests to boost numbers.

    Any normal business would. But I guess we are talking about wwe here lol.

    I can only see two ways of wwe getting better. They either loose to aew financially so much that they are forced to change the product or the company gets sold.

    WWE have already said they will not counter the CM Punk signing. Not that they can anyway. WWE is in the gutter. Just look at the Summerslam card. Awful.

    Their biggest match Reigns Cena has the most obvious outcome.



  • Registered Users Posts: 52,886 ✭✭✭✭ Headshot


    I've just read what they've done to the Reigns v Cena match

    Why the **** would they even consider doing this, they honestly think their fans are absolutely stupid

    I just don't understand what they are thinking



  • Registered Users Posts: 10,906 ✭✭✭✭ B.A._Baracus


    The whole if Reigns loses the title he'll leave wwe stipulation eh.

    Yeah it's silly. I think the loser leaves town is stupid in modern wrestling. Fans know if someone's contract is up and if someone is genuinely leaving they won't go over.

    Sure it once had a place in wrestling, especially going back to the territory days, not anymore tho.

    Do WWE not do free trials for the network anymore? I’m not paying for the Summerfest or NXT 36, Samold Joe vs. “I lost my raw debut to Jeff Hardy” Kross.

    No they stopped the free trials sometime back I think. I'm certain you could find another way to Watchwrestling *cough

    Rock to return to confront Roman could draw huge



  • Moderators, Business & Finance Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators Posts: 22,886 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Loughc


    I don’t trust WWE not to tweet out hours in advance that the rock is to appear.



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,634 ✭✭✭ ThePott


    Think they'll save Rock for Survivor Series, 25th Anniversary of his in-ring debut.



  • Registered Users Posts: 34,326 ✭✭✭✭ PTH2009


    12am-Pre show

    1am-4.30am- Main show



  • Registered Users Posts: 34,326 ✭✭✭✭ PTH2009


    These BT sports preview shows are odd

    The guy presenting looks like he is about burst out laughing



  • Registered Users Posts: 27,213 ✭✭✭✭ CastorTroy


    I see Big E is going to face Corbin on the preshow



  • Registered Users Posts: 27,213 ✭✭✭✭ CastorTroy


    Logan Paul getting booed



  • Registered Users Posts: 14,607 ✭✭✭✭ ShaneU


    Are they going to keep showing that moron Logan Paul at ringside all night? And the Cardi B song is dreadful



  • Registered Users Posts: 14,607 ✭✭✭✭ ShaneU


    And apparently John Cena is the GOAT now go and fcuk off!

    That entrance way is different.



  • Registered Users Posts: 345 ✭✭ orecir


    Riddle is over



  • Registered Users Posts: 14,607 ✭✭✭✭ ShaneU


    Stadium set up is impressive



  • Registered Users Posts: 34,326 ✭✭✭✭ PTH2009


    Christ it will take Goldberg all night to make it to the ring with that entrance way

    Stadium is massive



  • Registered Users Posts: 22,692 ✭✭✭✭ J. Marston


    Twitter saying Sasha is off the show.



  • Registered Users Posts: 14,607 ✭✭✭✭ ShaneU


    can't figure how how to do spoiler tags on the new site



  • Registered Users Posts: 14,607 ✭✭✭✭ ShaneU




  • Registered Users Posts: 37,821 ✭✭✭✭ Itssoeasy


    As much as I don’t get his gimmick Matt riddle is over, and Randy orton is a wrestling genius. Good opener that didn’t go on all night.



  • Registered Users Posts: 345 ✭✭ orecir


    RKO Bro are great.

    I just realised the reason they're putting Alexa against Eva Marie.

    Fans will never cheer Eva Marie and they're hoping they'll cheer Bliss because of how hated Eva is. Even though basically everyone hates the Lily/Voodoo stuff.

    I can book WWE and I take that as a personal insult.
