I don't understand how Vince can continue to insist on Roman being the guy, the roster is stacked with talent right now, even if his fondness for him is based purely on his look, why would you not just go with Rollins instead? He practically looks the same and is better in every way.

Glad my subscription expires today or tomorrow. I'll probably tune out for the foreseeable future.

Looking forward to Omega/Okada IV.

Mine renewed this morning after I forgot to cancel it following Mania :fp: Cancelled it now though, WWE creative is just garbage outside of NXT.

If anyone wants some eye bleach following Backlash, go watch at least The Jr and Heavyweight title matches from Dontaku. Both incredible.

The WWE Twitter is teasing another Roman Reigns (“the uncrowned champion”) vs Brock Lesnar encounter again.

Vince's obsession with him now is beyond pathetic.

Would you guys say it's as bad as that first battleground ppv a few years ago that nearly put me off wwe forever?

Not a good show, and definitely not challenging the all time crappiest PPVs of all time, but yeah I don’t think there’s been a worse one in the last couple of years at least.

Not a good start to the new co-branded PPVs, which are supposed to be producing better quality matches with less filler and repeats.

I don’t get where they going with Braun. He spends a month looking for a partner and they pair him up with a kid. Then he win the tag titles and relinquishes them. Now they put him in a tag team again with Lashley, who they also seem to have no idea how to use.

Bobby Roode is turning into a joke every week. Owens and Zayn could be something great, but it’s hopeless when they treated like jobbers every week.

What Braun needs right now is a singles run with the title. It was all so placed for him to challenge Lesnar at mania and win the title. The momentum was all there. He is decent on the mic and the crowd love to see him smash things up. It’s not rocket science WWE.

Anyone notice on RAW how both Goldust and Zack Ryder went into Angle’s office asking for a qualification match for MITB and neither got an answer, the segment just ending - in Goldust’s case he just left!

And then in the next segment, Mojo faced Rollins in an impromptu Intercontinental Championship match - well who signed off on the match? People asking Angle for matches all night and then you’ve suddenly got a title match happening on the fly.

Some of the continuity issues on this show are so bad.

Apparently Cena has moved onto Carmella after Nikki Bella, perfect reason to revive his rap career right there. Lucky bastard.

Isn't Carmella in a relationship with Big Case?

Yeah I saw the rumours yesterday but I could find no mention of her ever having broken up with Cass.

I sometimes wonder how much of this stuff is staged for Total Divas and Total Bellas.

Pretty cool seeing TNA footage of Kurt and AJ in the latest Table for 3 on the network. Weird that their promoting GWN while doing so though.
