Also Charlotte will surely be defending her title

I don't see the appeal of Reigns vs Brock. We have all known since last WrestleMania that this match was happening and that Reigns will be going over. I don't see why they continually have to telegraph the result of Mania a year in advance.

Don’t see Asuka facing Alexa.

Thought they had her beat Alexa, Bayley, Sasha and Nia, so she can make the switch to Smackdown. I think she’d end up facing Charlotte, once she wins at fast lane. Sasha will take on Bayley then we’d be left with Nia vs Alexa.

Apparently Rey vs Cena is another rumoured match.

I tuned in at 7pm and they were showing highlights from last week and then again at around 7:30pm and it was still highlights so I presumed it was cancelled due to the weather. 5 Star Wrestling’s Twitter wasn’t much help either.

There’s barely anybody in the crowd tonight.

WWE has gone and announced a second Royal Rumble for April, this one from Saudia Arabia! They’re calling it the “Greatest Royal Rumble” as it’s going to feature a 50 man Rumble. They said broadcasting is to be announced in the coming weeks, so sounds like it will be a Network Show.

Jesus, they’re really taking the piss with trying to “make history” these days, with all the first evers and biggest evers, they kind of lose their impact when they’re constant. 50 men though?! That’s a lot of jobbers to fly out!

Rousey isn't just gooseberry fool, she's ultra gooseberry fool. Won't be with the company this time next year. Couldn't even time saying one word correctly and then gave the worst samoan drop I've ever seen.

Steph's new hair has aged her about 10 years.

I see Del Rio is looking to go back to WWE with Vince still high on the guy.

I mean, how?!

I'd sooner Angle wrestle than them get the rock, I like the rock quiet a lot but just like Kurt a lot more...

In honesty I like the sound of a 50 man rumble , I hope a few of the 50 turn out to be real real shocks.

There was a very obvious jump cut edit on the YouTube version of RAW, just before Ronda chooses Stephanie to be her opponent at Mania. Anyone know what happened?

I would have much preferred it if this was Angle's first match since returning.

I can't imagine there will be many if any shocks in the fifty man Rumble. It sounds like it's just a one off special for Saudi Arabia with I assume little impact on WWE storylines, like the stadium event in India last year.

I don’t know, I think I would’ve preferred if The Rock was Rouseys partner. Partly because I’m on edge every time I see Angle do anything physical these days. Just standing there he doesn’t look comfortable, neck bigger than his head with little movement and a constant slightly bent legged stance. He’s probably one of my top 5 of all time and I hate to see something terrible happen, and I’m guessing him and HHH will be working the majority of the match so that’s even more pressure!

On another note I’m really looking forward to what WWE will be able to do with the Hardy compound, I assume at ‘Mania(?), bigger budget than TNA and more potential for cameos from practically any former wrestler of the last 30 years! Hopefully it’ll be proper mental.

It was another very akward Ronda segment, pauses and HHH and Steph jumping in to keep it going. Might have been to make it flow better.

I thought Angle seemed much more at ease in the segment this week. He moved much better, and didn't seem to stumble his words anywhere near as much.

I'm just thinking if Angle left the WWE before they introduced word-for-word scripts, maybe he's not used to reciting so much guff.
