When he first showed up in NXT he was always eating a banana backstage for some reason and always kept one in his pocket when he was on commentary or whatever :lol:

It's an identifier for being gay.

You know, putting your banana in someone's pocket.

Good for him putting himself out there :)

(Why do you think he keeps mentioning Nese's abs ;) )

I thought he was just being polite.
But nah, he's banging Velvet Skys gaming partner Rosita

WWE debuting a new Elimination Chamber on Sunday. I wonder what they've changed.

I noticed on the WWE youtube page that Elimination Chamber is called No Escape in Germany, presumably because of the use of the word Chamber.

I noticed that too but didn't think that could be the reason, you are probably right.

So the main event for WrestleMania was on SmackDown... clearly Cena is losing the belt at Elimination Chamber. It's quite a female heavy card. 3 Women's division matches. The tag team division feels a bit similar to the NXT Women's division. Throwing everyone at the Champions because no one legitimately stacks up. What is up with the Cryme Tyme makeover that the Usos have got going on too?

I kind of hope Elimination Chamber signals some surprises to shake up everything, as so far everything is falling into that rumoured WM card.

I've begun to notice in recent weeks how Jack Gallagher's theme tune is beginning to get him over...

Baron Corbin isn't covering up that he's going bald very well

Well Smackdown started superbly until Baron Corbin came down. He is utterly, utterly appalling on the mic.

He's fine.

You wanna see appalling on the mic, look at Sasha or Bayley.

Correct. He's not outstanding but I've seen him give good promos, and he was great on talking smack a few weeks ago. Sasha is just awful, it's like she speaks dyslexic.

I agree that Sasha and bayley are bad on the mic. I don't watch nxt so I was really disappointed about bayley, having seen some interviews and other footage of her before her raw debut I had high hopes and knew there was a lot of buzz about her.

I really disagree that Sasha is bad on the mic, she's able to emote, which is more than half that locker-room are able to do. When she changed from heel to face, it wasn't like with Charlotte, and a switch was flipped and she became a completely different person, she was able to make it seem natural, genuine. Few people can pull that off.

She speaks like she's been kicked in the head, there's no conviction in anything she says "I'm here to change the game" like she's reading the name of a new perfume:



Compare her to Charlotte or Becky and she's really bad.



And I'm a Sasha fan, but her acting is BAD.

I heard he was great on talking smack, it's a shame he only really turned up for a show that not many people will see. He was utterly horrific on commentary against Miz the other week and I haven't seen him do a decent promo since he started getting pushed on SD Live. I see him as another Reigns.

I think a bigger problem for Corbyn is that his stomach is another Bo Dallas and he's therefore had to resort to wearing a shirt.

I wonder if we're going to get a draft lottery after 'Mania to refine the brands a little. I read Vince has apparently teased a switch up. I watched the draft lottery from 2004 recently, and it was amusing. Particularly the hijinks between Heyman and Bischoff. Things still feel like they need refining, Elimination Chamber's card highlights the limitations of SD's roster.

I'm a little bewildered that Dillinger doesn't seem to have been drawn up after the Rumble. I notice his name in this week's NXT blurb, haven't watched it yet. The montage dedicated to Graves last week was touching. He was a creepy looking kid though.

Hope this Women's battle royale at 'Mania turns out to be true. I wonder if they would make it the Andre the Giant one, rather than having two. I heard his daughter was at SmackDown recently, so it would make sense.

I think historically the draft always fell a short while after mania but I could be wrong, I don't think it was always set in stone. I think SD just needs beefing up a bit, the thing with a draft is that they will then lose someone decent in the process as well.
