The original plans had Roman Reigns defeating Brock Lesnar in a match that went 35 minutes including entrances but the show ran long so they changed the match length.

  1. So WWE will be cleaning house in a few weeks?

    ReplyDelete
  2. Wait, so we could've spent MORE time in Suplex City?

    ReplyDelete
  3. If so, there will be a whole bunch of new talent for TNA and GFW to pick over.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Wait, they changed the match length, but if Roman was also supposed to go over that requires a little more explanation.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Yeah, Heath Slater and Cameron

    ReplyDelete
  6. Well I am glad to know they were smart enough to change the main event.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Yeah and the article did not specify. Meltzer will probably have the scoop when the Observer comes out Wednesday.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Then we can have a 3MB reunion at the next Chikara King of the Trios tournament!

    ReplyDelete
  9. I call BS on that report.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Maybe, Kofi will finally go?

    ReplyDelete
  11. Nah, there's way more other dudes they'd let go before Kofi.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I doubt the Rollins cash-in was a last minute decision, but I'd love to know when Vince finally decided to go that way.

    It really was the best way to get out of an otherwise unworkable situation.

    ReplyDelete
  13. They went long! Maybe they could have cut some of these segments out earlier:

    Rock "..."
    Ronda "..."
    Steph "..."
    HHH "...."
    Crowd: "This is awesome!"
    Rock "..."
    Ronda "..."
    Steph "..."
    HHH "...."

    repeat for several minutes

    ReplyDelete
  14. Since Bray was hurt shouldn't Taker have come out to at least take a knee or something? Having neither guy on the show made that match all the more forgettable.

    ReplyDelete
  15. At this point I put nothing past Vince. They guy changes his mind more than a teenage girl.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Rewatching mania. I'm to the glorious Terminathurst Helmsley entrance

    ReplyDelete
  17. Disappointed that there wasn't a DX vs. nWo match tonight that either ended with a clusterfuck or ended with the nWo B-Team making the save.

  20. He has to be Batman next year right? some sort of medieval barbarian Batman for the Batman/Superman movie?

    ReplyDelete
  21. The lady in the office next to mine is singing loudly again. There is a wall separating us. Time to give someone a LAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARIATOOOOOOOOOO!

    ReplyDelete
  22. AXE BOMBAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

    ReplyDelete
  23. While looking through the Wiki page to see who could get cut loose by the E I realized they even give "work names" to refs, announcers and the broadcast team. Is there anything the WWE doesn't brand?

    ReplyDelete
  24. No kidding. They took their sweet-ass time with that segment and then wondered why they were running long. They are usually better with that.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I was thinking Birdman.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Do you know her bf/husbands name? perhaps you can start a you suck (fill in the blank) chant

    ReplyDelete
  27. Some dude?

    ReplyDelete
  28. If Brock Lesnar came into the company today, they'd probably name him Brick Tufnel

    ReplyDelete
  29. The HHH entrance got the second biggest laugh of the night at our viewing party. JBL's They're human beings damn it!" won out

    ReplyDelete
  30. And Lana was in a girl group called "No Mean Yes". What in the damn world...?

    ReplyDelete
  31. They would make him act just like Brick Tamland.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I don't think they do the big cuts anymore, I think they decided on a policy of just quietly letting contracts run out, whenever that might be

    ReplyDelete
  33. He would have took out 5 guys in the battle royal only to be tossed by big show...

  36. Anchorman came out like 10 years ago. I'm not sure Vince has seen it yet.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Apparently 2009 was a simpler time.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Man, Social Justice Warriors would've had a field day with that name. IT'S A TRIGGER!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I don't know who rebooked what was going to be a 35 min live abortion to close the biggest show of the year but God bless em.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I assumed they sent them out to kill time while the sun set.

    Pretty crazy that they didn't time the show around the sun setting, but totally a 2015 WWE thing to do.

    ReplyDelete
  41. All that stalling from The Rock during the Rousey promo?

    He knew what he was doing.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Extant1979 - Extreme SuperstarMarch 31, 2015 at 7:54 AM

    How do you start a show at 2-3 pm on the West Coast and expect a sunset in an outdoor stadium?

  44. Oh man those wacky facebook people who say things like, " I can't believe how many people believe wrestling is real. it's ridiculous" when the sportscenter page is talking about WWE. I mean really. Other great gems include: " Why is WWE every other post now? Post about sports, not hillbilly soap-operas." from the scholar whose profile pic makes him look like a fucking pedophile.

    ReplyDelete
  45. He was trying to save his "cousin" from having to do more work in his match later in the evening

    ReplyDelete
  46. Well for whatever reason it happened the Main event was pretty much the perfect length

    ReplyDelete
  48. I honestly don't think anyone under the age of six believes wrestling is "real," so I don't get why that's still the main criticism of it. I know it's an easy shot, but there are so many better ways to put down wrestling than pulling the "people should know it's fake" card again.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I would actually mark out for them coming in and losing in the first round. I was going nuts when Spirit Squad was in the ring last year. The energy at King of Trios just has you clapping and chanting for everything.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I sprained my ankle one time and I couldn't walk 2 feet for a week without excruciating pain. How Bray wrestled like that, I have no idea. Kudos.

    ReplyDelete
  51. My favourite thing to say to people who try to tell me wrestling's fake?


    "So?"

    ReplyDelete
  52. those kids under 6 also have terrible parents if they think it's real

    ReplyDelete
  53. Now that the Dudleys are out of TNA, Bubba, D-Von, and Spike could enter.

    ReplyDelete
  54. So why is no one talking about that clearly at mania they set up a X-pac Hogan match at mania 32?

    ReplyDelete
  55. Funny how the "realty era" consists of giving everybody fake names.

    ReplyDelete
  56. You'd think they'd give him a big push when he comes back for being such a Hoss, but he'll probably get buried because he had the audacity to get hurt the day of the show

    ReplyDelete
  57. *shrug* is my reaction to most of today's product, anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Worst_in_the_WorldMarch 31, 2015 at 8:00 AM

    The three hour thing is just such a giant fucking problem. The Lesnar angle was all you needed out of Rollins for the night, and the Rollins/Orton/Reigns angle should have started next week.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Who cares about keeping new subscribers? They're giving April away for free!

    What a cluster.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I don't think the length of the show is the problem, it's the way they structure it and the way they focus on two matches (at most) over the duration of the three hours.

    If they expanded the time the undercard are given in the ring (for example, give Neville and Axel 10-15 mins instead of 3) and actually put a little storyline development focus on them, and cut the never-fucking-ending recaps, the 3 hours would fly past.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Neville should have absolutely squashed Axel like he did.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Worst_in_the_WorldMarch 31, 2015 at 8:02 AM

    They early should have main evented the show with the Cena open challenge and Cena/Ambrose match. Do that segment with Orton threatening Rollins backstage and keep them off rest of show. Then in the third hour Big Show is out there gloating, fans chanting please retire at him, and Reigns just walks out, says nothing and kills Show in less than a minute.


    Then end the night with a super hot Cena/Ambrose match.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Kalisto looked awesome in his debut. And Neville's timing and working the crowd was great too. Track those down on YouTube.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Worst_in_the_WorldMarch 31, 2015 at 8:03 AM

    Oh yeah that was great. That was within the first two hours, right?

    ReplyDelete
  65. Worst_in_the_WorldMarch 31, 2015 at 8:04 AM

    3 hours is absolutely way too much time, way too much. Everyone's gonna get o erexposed, no matter how well they structure the show. (And yes they can structure things way better, but 3 hours every Monday plus Smackdown is insane and killing the roster.)

    ReplyDelete
  66. Yes. The crowd responded well to him a few months back during that NXT match on RAW.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Yes and no.

    In current context, yes, completely.

    But in an ideal world, even 'squash' matches would have a decent amount of time to tell a story in the ring.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Extant1979 - Extreme SuperstarMarch 31, 2015 at 8:08 AM

    Nitro was a great show at 2 hours but became insufferable at 3. The length of the show is a problem, because it's hard to keep a show interesting that long.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I don't disagree, but if Lesnar is still working limited dates, what do you run instead? It seems like they're going to use Bryan to elevate the IC belt and Cena to elevate the US belt, so who's left for Rollins to feud with? Maybe elevate Ziggler once and for all?

    ReplyDelete
  70. The first hour of RAW last night was perfect

    ReplyDelete
  71. Extant1979 - Extreme SuperstarMarch 31, 2015 at 8:11 AM

    Right, but it wasn't sustainable for the other two hours of the show. Even the best Raws of the three hour era had one hour that dragged.


    But it's not 100 percent WWE's decision. Triple H even said it on the Austin podcast, if he could bring the show back to 2 hours, he would.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Then people would just have complained about Cena being in the main event again.

    Although I thought last night's Cena match was much better than his WM one, which just felt flat as hell to me.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I agree. The main event was on the lazy side though and everyone watching and in attendance knew Reigns would be the 3rd person on Orton's team.

    ReplyDelete
  74. I didn't. As said below, I actually forgot about Reigns entirely, and given the fact it was queued up as a 'mystery' partner, I was actually expecting someone like Itami, looking to get revenge on Big Show.

    How stupidly naive of me. :)

    It's happened 3 times in the NHL, I think. Not sure about the NBA.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Correction for the review: And, now, we find out if the WWE knows how to use the fans truly caring about Miz-dow

    ReplyDelete
  77. For some reason, I just remember that being mentioned during Game 7. The NHL had had its 3-0 comeback, but MLB (and NBA I think) had never even gotten to that deciding game.

    ReplyDelete
  78. NBA did for sure. Mavs/Portland one year and Denver/Utah in the mid 90s.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Eh, I disagree with you here, NORMALLY, and as much as I enjoyed the show (the first two hours of it), the crowd reactions here have to be taken with a bit of a grain of salt. Orton has been MUCH more over in the weeks leading up to Wrestlemania, and I actually think his psycho face character who does bad things to heels is really fun. As far as Big Show and Kane though, that's another story, why they are in the main event in 2015 still baffles my mind, but who knows.

    ReplyDelete
  80. It was overwhelming, the chants at the Divas. I was embarrassed.

    ReplyDelete
  81. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©March 31, 2015 at 9:53 AM

    It would have been fantastic.

    ReplyDelete
  82. I did?

    Here's what I said:
    "this entire segment was worth the show."

    How did I ignore it?

    ReplyDelete
  83. Here's what I said:

    "RATING: DUD, but Neville's badass."

    Also, this wasn't a 5-star match. It was a squash. Neville is impressive. So, what I think I might do is not rate shit like this because it's fairly obvious what the rating would be.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Were you even paying attention to what I wrote? My opinion was right there:

    "This entire segment was worth the show."

    I mean...come on...

    ReplyDelete
  85. I gave my opinion. You either ignored it or you disagree. Bryan and Ziggler wasn't "awesome". It was ok. The match on Smackdown was far better than this.

    I also said that the Brock segment was worth the entire show...did you not see any of this?

    ReplyDelete
  86. "However for the most part I am on the side of the fans paid to be there they can do what they want"

    Wow...I don't even know where to begin with that. Yes, they paid money. Let them do what they want...just...wow.

    ReplyDelete
  87. That was before the PPV/Weekly TV era. If it didn't happen on TV, then it didn't happen. You knew Bruno was touring, but you didn't see it happen.

    ReplyDelete
  88. It was buried in all that text. Probably should've been a separate paragraph.

    ReplyDelete
  89. D-Bry v. Ziggler was better than the Smackdown story. It told a much better story and helped put over both guys and the I-C Title. Certainly not worth a lowly ** rating.

    ReplyDelete
  90. I thought the SD match was better, even still. This was like the third round between the two guys. I sat through RAW live that night, then went home and watched it again. It was slightly better live than it was on TV, which neutered the match by removing the middle. I really wish they'd save their commercial time for minor matches.

    ReplyDelete
  91. CruelConnectionNumber2March 31, 2015 at 10:34 AM

    Last year's crowd was WAYYYY better. This crowd blew for the most part. Little virgins chanting about BJ's to girls that would wipe the floor with them.

    ReplyDelete
  92. Good show but I'm think Im in the crowd now of being over the SmarkMania RAW crowd.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Eh, I don't know about that last bit, I wouldn't bet on the Bellas in a shoot fight with a Care Bear.

    ReplyDelete
  94. I would hardly say they were awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Well, he chose to take his step-dads name, so that's partially on him.

  96. I mean, the ultimate smark promotions are what, ECW/RoH?


    Hardly paragons of equality when it comes to gender.

    ReplyDelete
  97. Eh, I'm not saying online objectification is fantastic, but I think it's loads better than doing it in a live setting.

    ReplyDelete
  98. You could say the same thing about women, does that mean that chanting "you suck dick" at random female passerby is acceptable because 1/4 (whatever the ratio is) gets sexually assaulted?

    ReplyDelete
  99. I think they're still chanting racist shit in soccer stadiums.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Or a portion of the Bay that isn't terrible.

    ReplyDelete
  101. How is extramarital cocksucking any worse than cocksucking between husband and wife? Or husband and husband?

  102. People used to have fun lynching black folks.


    Frats still have fun raping women.


    Just because it's "for fun" doesn't mean it's okay.

    ReplyDelete
  103. Anyone else feel they missed out by not having Sting come out early for his interview and getting in a "Its Sting! We're out of time, see you on network!!:

    ReplyDelete
  104. because racism is "worse" than sexism?!?

    ReplyDelete
  105. Key word is 'irrational'.

    ReplyDelete

  107. Eh they've sucked for so long fuck the divas anyway. And it was hard to make out on TV.

  110. They're at wrestling show. Who gives a shit?

    ReplyDelete
  111. Aren't you the worthless piece of shit who uses words like "jap" in 2015?

    ReplyDelete
  112. It's for moments like these that WWE desperately needs talent who can, and have the freedom to, improvise on the mic. A solid heel Diva with promo skills could have stopped the match, demanded a mic, rightly called out those douche bags for being douche bags, and generated more heel heat for herself. I feel like Sunny, Sherri Martel, or Medusa could have dealt with them.

    ReplyDelete
  113. The enemy of my enemy is the Night After WM Raw crowd.
