Sporting News: The Best Wrestlemania Preview Ever

    Yeah, just a tad......
    Also, maybe it's because I love battle royals, I do care about the ARMBAR. So that makes one person on the planet that does.

  2. "There's this weird movement online right now to recognize Nikki Bella as someone who might be more talented than she's getting credit for. This movement is patently wrong. She's worse."



    Yup.

    ReplyDelete
  3. I've really never watched the live stream except for the royal rumble I watched live here. I don't think I'm going to make mania live and I know they don't put up the on demand one until the next day. So can you start the live stream from the beginning of the show?

    "This has been acceptably decent due to ripping off Rocky IV, the fourth-most awesome of the Rocky movies"

    I see you've lost concentration at some point and added "fourth" into this sentence randomly, you still have time to go and edit your mistake before anyone else notices!

    Wow, Scott is harsher on this show than I am, which is saying something.

    ReplyDelete
  6. I fully expect Reigns to win with a Rock run-in and huge fireworks display attempting to cover up all of the boos. That plus a Triple H victory over Sting would make this show intolerable for me. On the other hand, if Lesnar were to retain or if Rollins were to successfully cash in his contract, then I will consider the show a success.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Yep, too snarky.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Itami's a geek when he loses that battle royal. Have fun jobbing to El Torito on Main Event this time next year.

    ReplyDelete
  9. You consider the show a success based on who you would like to win...hmmm...:)

    ReplyDelete
  10. I don't think it'll be a shit show either. Just painfully boring.

    ReplyDelete
  11. This isn't meant as a dig... I'm pretty sure that when Sting was announced to be coming in, you were in the camp that said it was UT or nothing. Where were all the geriatric comments then? Serious question, what changed in the last 6 months?

    ReplyDelete
  12. You need to trademark that "ARMBAR" thing now.

    ReplyDelete
  13. You know, Hogan was 49 at WM 18, Flair was 59 at WM 24. I think this whole age thing with the Undertaker and Sting is a tad overstated. Plus, didn't the Undertaker have a concussion early in the match last year, somewhat explaining his lethargy in the match? I find myself agreeing with the person who sent in the question. I think this year's WM will be a sleeper hit.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Oh man Scott, that entire Brock Lesnar time traveling bit, now makes me WISH he was the one who played Harrison Wells in The Flash television show.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I agree. Plus I think their respective opponents (Bray and HHH) are the right guys for the job. As Rock and Shawn were for Hogan and Flair.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Its a good idea in theory but invariably its a contest of geeks to see who can be the biggest geek who ever geeked. Last years prestigious winner curtain jerks with a dude who has cat paws on his tights.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I've made it though the 9-27-86 challenge so far.

    ReplyDelete
  18. That finish both makes complete sense and is completely awful.

    ReplyDelete
  19. And a fantastically retarded screwjob as the cherry on this turd sundae.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Well I stopped at the Feb. 20 episode in 1988. So from there on I need :)


    Thanks :)

  22. Stranger in the AlpsMarch 27, 2015 at 11:52 PM

    The Wrestlemania III build really starts in November with the Andre reinstatement, Steamboat-Savage, and the Honky Tonk Man heel turn.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Okay maybe Flair/Savage won't suck...

    ReplyDelete
  24. Why they didn't keep Sting's music is beyond me.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Well Hayes should only go in as a freebird I'd say but the Jimmy Garvin thing is an interesting question. Could he get in with them? They tagged together for quite awhile in WCW and they did a pretty good job even it was something different. Still i'd prefer to see it kept to the original 3.


    Buddy is still alive but he uses one of those voice box things to talk...

    ReplyDelete
  26. Biff Kensington Has a PosseMarch 27, 2015 at 11:55 PM

    You would think. And you would probably be very, very wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  27. It occurs to me that they don't seem to have any video walls, which means that anyone further than about the 5th row back probably can't see shit.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  30. Jesus, how much does it cost to fly a helicopter for 3 hours?! Fuel & maintenance on a chopper is like thou$ands per hour...

    ReplyDelete
  31. What's their gate for a beach show? $0?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Short haircut Flair is just wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  33. It certainly is.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Tape on the fingers, someone's getting some color here soon.

    ReplyDelete
  35. And more wrestlers going to theme parks and filming it for DVDs they can hawk at ringside.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I wonder if bringing out all the baywatch girls was just Bischoff one-upping Vince for having Pam an Mania that year.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Him cutting it to be the Black Scorpion was like Vince getting his head shaved. Neither looked right afterwards.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Mmm, a greasy, spicy Slim Jim on a hot summer day at the beach...

    ReplyDelete
  39. Gary Michael Cappetta better fucking do the intro for Sting on Sunday.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Started the San Jose bar scene at one of the worst bars ever. Like Bones probably has better bars at whatever Yinzer bar he goes to. Luckily got an Uber and he took me to the downtown district of San Jose and I don't feel like I'll get murdered anymore.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Throwing slim jims at Flair is inspired though.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Just imaging your stomach starting to gurgle, not knowing where the nearest toilet is, and eyeing the nearby ocean...

    ReplyDelete
  43. I think Marv passed out.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Biff Kensington Has a PosseMarch 28, 2015 at 12:08 AM

    He may have hit the floor from the Mariners trading for David Price this evening.

  48. Biff Kensington Has a PosseMarch 28, 2015 at 12:10 AM

    I was posting some clickbait to see if he was around.

    ReplyDelete
  49. According to Metsfan, so take it with a grain of salt

    ReplyDelete
  50. Flair pretty blatantly calling spots. Odd given Savage's propensity for laying out matches in advance.

    ReplyDelete
  51. They are letting Manziel out of rehab on 4/20...someone has a sense of humor.

    ReplyDelete
  52. The direction and camerawork are terrible.

    ReplyDelete
  53. That, and allowing the crowd to congregate on the 3 sides *not* opposite the hard camera.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  55. Has any music WWE has used for PPV's or entrance themes actually made you become a fan of the band that performed it?

    They used Metalingus for Edge and Rise Today for a PPV and it made me a big fan of Alter Bridge.

    ReplyDelete
  56. He said he was tapping out about 20 minutes ago.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Same here...when I heard Alter Bridge was Creed castoffs, I wrote them off without listening.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Biff Kensington Has a PosseMarch 28, 2015 at 12:16 AM

    Though it shames me to say this, Peter Gabriel and Shinedown from WrestleMania 22 made me fans of those bands. I was also a big fan of 'Ugly' by the Exies as well.

    ReplyDelete
  59. https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/proxy/TNS1dqdumHdZ6O0zX--nGcUhCZGwWKW6eIddpcDVb_ZJZd0vFO943OMONyZx8rOZzC0rW8qhed4GYb81j1-0lOEHBUFqp3reRqZHQct1rW-9CZDh_ywrEXo5R0DZaCbzODU5N9EF7ykee5uz=w470-h313-nc

    ReplyDelete
  60. Oh yeah I should have mentioned Ugly. I became an Exies fan and actually bought two of their albums. I still will listen to a couple songs in my rotation.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Saturday Night Main Event made Phil Collins cool.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Shit I forgot Saliva! WWE used them when I was at an impressionable age lol. I was big into Saliva for a bit. Still have some fun songs to listen to.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Evanescence as well. 💓 Amy their lead singer

    ReplyDelete
  64. Disagree. Rock is a better worker than Bray and HBK is light years better than HHH

    ReplyDelete
  65. Yinling is still #1

    ReplyDelete
  66. Not his, it's all over reddit and a ton of other places too

    ReplyDelete
  67. I love them bragging about the huge crowd that paid $0

    ReplyDelete
  68. Schiavone claimed it was 100,000 plus at the beginning of the show.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Isn't that Malenko's music they are using for that Vader highlight?

    ReplyDelete
  70. I think this was Vader's last major WCW appearance before Paul Orndorff kicked the shit out of him in flip flops and he jumped to the WWF.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Yeah, he was supposed to be at Fall Brawl but got pulled, and Luger inserted

    ReplyDelete
  72. Harsh and snarky=clicks=money

    ReplyDelete
  73. We ALL became fans after this, don't lie:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lW91vTwFvRQ

    ReplyDelete
  74. Excuse me, sir, but Phil Collins already done been cool by that point

    ReplyDelete
  75. Watch for after the main at BatB 95, where Tony is all like "good show, Brain. Hey Brain, good show."

    ReplyDelete
  76. Hogan delivering vintage WWF promo...

    ReplyDelete
  77. Hogan used the wrong shade of yellow in WCW. Much more sickly compared to the golden yellow of the WWF.

    Also, Rodman is a state. Grabbing Hogan's face and babbling nonsense.

    ReplyDelete
  78. They better do a Rocky 4 entrance with Rusev too.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Well, I *am* going to be in the vicinity on Sunday...

    ReplyDelete
  80. Don't fight the rooskie, Apollo!

    ReplyDelete
  81. Pfft. What's he gonna do? KILL ME?

    ReplyDelete
  82. More than age last year I just think Brock/Taker don't stylistically match up well.

    ReplyDelete
  83. "I'm am going to be here when you wake up. I will not leave your side."


    *sits down for 2 seconds*


    "You could be asleep for hours. Maybe I'll come back later."

    ReplyDelete
  84. Austin wrestling at 32 would be amazing. But let's not forget that it's also Michael cole announcing him. If JR doesn't get brought in to announce the match then I think that really devalues the experience.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Yeah I know. Rock and Shawn are two if the best workers ever. I'm not trying to compare Bray and HHH to them. I'm saying that the at least these old guys (UT and Sting) are in their with good, experienced, quality workers who will the more out of them than anyone else on the roster would.

    ReplyDelete
  86. If nothing else, sitting through this show has already guaranteed to improve my opinion of wrestlemania this sunday.

    ReplyDelete
  87. I don't foresee anyway Austin agrees to a match without JR there to call it.

    ReplyDelete
  88. I hope they do it in the style of Summerslam 93. Do both anthems, raise both flags. Do it up nice.

    ReplyDelete
  89. :: Knocks On Door While Peeking Through Window ::


    Are you still open?

    ReplyDelete
  90. "Ew, your forehead is all sweaty"

    ReplyDelete
  91. Seeing Rodman hold the chair upside down did it

    ReplyDelete
  92. Okay, Bash at the Beach 1995 is over. Now let us never speak of it again.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Post-match angle as the fans rapidly leave...

    ReplyDelete
  94. So what's up now Wiffle? Bash 91, KOTR 95, one of the Road Wilds?

    ReplyDelete
  95. Uncensored 95 or 96?

    ReplyDelete
  96. Well boyos, I'm off to pee and sleep.

    ... hopefully in that order.

    ReplyDelete
  97. That was very odd. Presumably it was supposed to be a face turn for Vader, but it only succeeded in making Flair look like an idiot.

    ReplyDelete
  98. I'm going to take some time and think about what I've done. We'll assemble tomorrow for AWA Superclash III*.

    * - We will do no such bloody thing.

    ReplyDelete
  99. I'd hope not. Taker and HHH got that but Ross was more involved with the company

    ReplyDelete
  100. There's a few of us but we watched BATB 95, so we've had our spirits broken.

    ReplyDelete
  101. I *really* don't think Taker Wyatt will be good unless it's <10 minutes

    ReplyDelete
  102. Regardless of anything that happens, I will give the main event ***** if right after Reigns hits the Superman punch, time-traveling Brock Lesnar, dressed in a cowboy hat, arrives in a pimped-out Delorean, hauls HHH out of the back, shoves him in the car, points at Reigns, and yells "We have to go back to the future to save the company from Diesel junior!" and does 88 MPH down the rampway and disappears, wherein Dean Ambrose comes stumbling out of the back confused by the flaming tire tracks and eats Sister Abigail for the pin.

    ReplyDelete
  103. It'll be a sleeper hit because nobody has any excitement for it at all.

    ReplyDelete
  104. I really wouldn't call Shawn light years better than Triple H.

    ReplyDelete
  105. So now they're copying storylines from Chikara?

    ReplyDelete
  106. Tell me that it would be worse than what we expect to get at this point.

    ReplyDelete
  107. I don't know. I really didn't notice any snark.

    ReplyDelete
  108. Not at all. I fucking LOVE Chikara. I was just pissed that they went and stole a storyline from another Fed again :-) . About the only ones immune at this point (that I've seen) are Chikara and PWG.


    Hell, in the past few years, they even stole at least one TNA storyline.


    Let that sink in -- creative had so little "creative" that they actually stole a storyline from TNA, the company that has spent 12 years stealing from WWE.


    That's some meta shit right there.

    ReplyDelete
  109. I don't believe so.

    ReplyDelete
  110. Vince McMahon. December, 1997:

    "We, in the WWF, think that you, the audience, are, quite frankly, tired of having your 'intelligence insulted'. We also think that you're tired of the same old simplistic theory of 'Good Guys VS Bad Guys'. Surely the era of 'The super-hero urge you to say your prayers and take your vitamins' is definitely, passe."

    Vince McMahon, pretty much every day since 2010:

    "Fuck you. You will like what I tell you to like."

    ReplyDelete
  111. He's sure a lot better at carrying a match.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Keep ripping off Seanbaby. I promise nobody will notice.

    ReplyDelete
  113. Audioslave

    ReplyDelete
  114. I remember a lot more Triple H moments than I do Shawn Michaels moments.


    But yeah, I doubt the Sting/Trips match will be phenomenal.

    ReplyDelete
  115. I don't notice because I don't know that name.

    ReplyDelete
  116. Someone is looking forward to Undertaker/Wyatt because of Wyatt's entrance?

    ReplyDelete
  117. overatted shitty country

    ReplyDelete
  118. Chikara's shit, Quackenbhus is a hack

  121. you are not good at this

    ReplyDelete
  122. Me neither. He's parsecs better than Triple H.

    ReplyDelete
  123. Scott Keith Mark so smark?

    ReplyDelete
  124. I didn't see anyone saying Nikki Bella is better than, say, Sasha or Charlotte, but if you not only can't see the same transformation Candice Michelle and Christy Hemme underwent shortly before they left the company happening in Nikki, but actually think she's WORSE than she was in the past, you either want to hate her just because or you're really bad at watching/understanding wrestling.

    ReplyDelete
  125. So fucking forced. Scott Keith's not the funniest writer ever, but he's got some chops and occasionally gets a bullseye. Scott Keith Trying Too Hard, though? The worst shit ever.

    ReplyDelete
  126. What the hell is a seanbaby?

    ReplyDelete
  127. God. They really did turn their back on that philosophy huh?

    ReplyDelete
  128. Yeah, this preview was kind of a downer really. I think as this late stage we're all trying our bestest to get as excited for tomorrow night as possible.

    ReplyDelete
  129. I think it's like a chocolate-covered Ding Dong? Maybe that's a babycake. Who knows anymore.

    ReplyDelete
  130. Nikki is dreadful, her improvement is minimal at best.

    ReplyDelete
  131. I remember a lot more fantasic Shawn matches than hhh. There's a reason most of triple h's recent feuds had Shawn in them.

    ReplyDelete
  132. So do you hate her or are you bad at watching and understanding wrestling?

    ReplyDelete
  133. Yes that's called being a fan.

    ReplyDelete
  134. So being a fan/mark is a bad thing?

    ReplyDelete
  135. "Lukewarm" MrJustinBMarch 28, 2015 at 5:53 AM

    OK well, right off the bat, I need to know how you rate the Rocky movies, Scott. You have 4 as the fourth best. I'd go something like 1,3,Balboa, 2,4,5. But, I may be able to be convinced otherwise.

    ReplyDelete
  136. oh I understand watching wrestling. I watch her and she's terrible at it. It's not hard.

    ReplyDelete
  137. Also why would I hate her?

    ReplyDelete
  138. They don't have to be mutually exclusive, you know, but if I take you at your word, I'll put you down as "hate her." Gotcha.

    ReplyDelete
  139. "Lukewarm" MrJustinBMarch 28, 2015 at 5:57 AM

    I dunno about hating, but the bit they did in the Wrestlemania special yesterday could generate some heat. The Bellas were pretty affective a being egomaniac heels during a pretaped segment.

    ReplyDelete
  140. I wish last night NxT live show could have been available on the Network, from all report it looks like it was a lot of fun

    ReplyDelete
  141. You do that. She is still terrible.

    ReplyDelete
  142. Hey remember when Rollins vs Cena vs Lesnar was booked with Lesnar being the face despite Lesnar being a heel and Lesnar winning cleanly and convincingly? Yep, good guys vs bad guys passe booking there.

    ReplyDelete
  143. Lesnar vs Cena vs Rollins is a far, FAR better match than Bryan vs Batista vs Orton was at Mania 30. So I have hopes that Lesnar is going to drag a great match out of Reigns. Seriously, Lesnar at Royal Rumble was a fucking stupendous performance. Granted Rollins was fantastic too and Cena very good, but still... that sequence with the 3 AA's and the Curb Stomp was some brilliant selling by Lesnar.

    ReplyDelete
  144. If we get RR 2015 style Brock Lesnar as an unstoppable, bad-ass, Hulk style face against The Authority/Shield? The Post Mania season is going to be fantastic.

    ReplyDelete
  145. Stephanie did live stream a part of it from here phone : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DSNMbmSgf1I Bailey got a huge pop.

    ReplyDelete
  146. 3/10 not one of your better efforts. Too much snark is possible

    ReplyDelete
  147. Fin Balor's entrance is a thing of glory : https://vine.co/v/O3YvMa5tAMX

    ReplyDelete
  148. Keith's done that before. A week ago he said Sting was definitely winning against Triple H, and then four days later he said he could see Triple H winning.

    ReplyDelete
  149. Not one of TNA's best effort. EC3 is really over with the crowd, kinda like for Sasha Banks there is now a duelling chant "You can't Wrestler"/"Yes he can" that was funny.
    Bram/Magnus is still great and feel real (and more Micjie James on the screen is always a plus)


    For the rest, not really interested in Jeff Hardy (at all) and the Revolution is kinda corny.

    ReplyDelete
  150. The Tag match is beyond stupid thought, why not make it a fatal 4 way for the title ? It would be way more interesting

    ReplyDelete
  151. Jr will be calling GFW by then.

    ReplyDelete
  152. HowmuchdoesthisguyweighMarch 28, 2015 at 6:41 AM

    Over the last few days I have really started to ponder the possibilities of shield reuniting to get the strap on themselves (to them it doesn't matter who has it, THEY are the champions). Face Brock chasing the shield could carry them until next years mania. It unlikely but I can't get the fantasy booking out of my head for that scenario.

    Could start innocently enough with Ambrose going to reigns and telling him, if he sees Heyman get involved he will take care of him. Followed by Rollins just walking by smirking with the case....

    ReplyDelete
  153. It would go against almost everything that has happened in WWE for the past year. It's almost impossible for it to make sense. I still can't believe Scott suggested it recently.

    ReplyDelete
  154. Why is everyone saying Cena\Rusev is like Rocky 4. It's clearly more like Rocky 3. Evil Challenger wants a match with the hero champion, but he says nah. Champion beats on tomato can while challenger runs his mouth and finally gets his match.

    ReplyDelete
  155. Who gives a shit if it makes sense?

    All that matters is whether it'd be awesome. And it would. Besides, nothing in WWE makes sense. Or has ever made sense. It's a big stupid comic-book in live-action.

    ReplyDelete
  156. It's a little Russoish but you can just have to Rollins say the break up was a serve to get all 3 in position to win the world title. If they stayed together, HHH would have done everything he could to prevent them from doing that.

    ReplyDelete
  157. On a more positive note:

    The NXT was VERY well attended:
    http://imgur.com/B4z8u52

    KENTA hit a brutal Go 2 Sleep:
    https://instagram.com/p/0woTK4lGYL/

    And Vince was in attendance, wondering where all the "superstars" were:
    https://twitter.com/WrestleChatNet/status/581702795331563521

    ReplyDelete
  158. Or just say that in January HHH realised he had to get the belt off of Lesnar. So the Shield is a Plan B in case Reigns and Rollins can't.

    ReplyDelete
  159. YankeesHoganTripleHFanMarch 28, 2015 at 7:10 AM

    Jackass

    ReplyDelete
  160. All they have to do is say they realized that they are more powerful together than apart, and they realized all along it was The Authority who was trying to drive wedges between them.

    You can still tease dissension with champion Roman Reigns and Rollins having the briefcase.

    ReplyDelete
  161. Once again I'm really shocked they would go with anything other than Brock winning clean as a fucking sheet or Reigns turning heel and / or reforming The Shield to win. Reigns beating Brock and being a babyface is a complete joke. WWE's top 2 faces will be losers who get booed out of the building. At least Cena can work.

    ReplyDelete
  162. Such a shame they didn't film it for the network. I want to see that Zayn/Owens promo. Apparently it was amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  163. I'm all for it, Reigns is smiling Rocky Maivia they have to pretty drastically change directions here to salvage this guy.

    ReplyDelete
  164. The Shield standing tall has a super team to end the show would be fantastic. I would actually be looking forward to Raw to see their entrance.

    ReplyDelete
  165. And feud with a freshly turned Bray Wyatt for the title. And Bray reforms the family to back him up.

    ReplyDelete
  166. I admit i would mark out for a triple powerbomb on Brock

    ReplyDelete
  167. Internet comedy writer. I knew him mostly from when I subscribed to EGM years ago. He's actually pretty damn funny.

  168. Or try to drive a wedge between partners by saying that if Paige and AJ win, whoever scores the pinfall gets a title shot.

    As of now, it's a divas tag that really isn't even a Raw second hour main event.

  169. Rocky 4 is the second-most awesome. Nothing beats the original.

  170. Hey, desperate times and all. I prefer shit to make sense as well, but WWE rarely does it anyway, so why not...

  171. I'd mark the fuck out if Raw ended with Lesnar saving some hapless babyfaces from The Shield. That stare down would be epic, the resulting brawl would be Godly, and Shield putting Lesnar out until Summerslam would be excellent long-term booking.

  175. "Fact #2: Brock Lesnar was forbidden to regrow his beard by mandate of
    the United Nations, because it was actively decreasing the testosterone
    of the male audience members who were watching Brock on TV, and thus
    threatened the continued propagation of the human race. "

    I laff'd. Hard.

  176. "Who gives a shit if it makes sense?"


    Not a valid reason.

  177. Brock vs. The Shield.

  178. Are you talking about Seanbaby?

  179. Seriously, come on. This is just asinine that nothing has to make sense. Every story has to have some sort of boundary or limitation, even wrestling.

  180. Kidd "he's the only guy on the roster with a collapsible cereal bowl"
    Cesaro "they don't call me a serial killer for no reason"
    Haha

  181. Spud and EC3 will be in the WWE within two years. Carter's an excellent heel and Spud is just a guy who'll get anything you give him over through his sheer inability to not put in 150%.

  182. Is it true that both the Battle Royale and 6-Man match are going on the Kickoff show?? That leaves 6 matches in FOUR hours!! Holy shit.. there's going to be so many video tributes and fucking stalling!! No way I'm watching this whole shit live..

  183. Great stuff as always. That Aubrey fellow on the Main Event made me want to jab a fork in my head though, Christ.

  184. Wrestling has people come out unannounced while their entrance music plays. It has The Undertaker and Bray Wyatt do supernatural things AFTER they've been established as human beings. It has wrestlers thrown into boxes marked 'return to development.' It has a Leprechaun court, magic doorways that only work for little people, wrestlers trying to kill each other one year then being friends the next, it has Hogan seeing a wrestler in a mirror and Eric Bischoff pretending he doesn't see anything, and it has CM Punk spending MONTHS feuding with HHH only for the two to make-up for no reason whatsoever out of nowhere.

    I'm sorry if wrestling not making sense is some dealbreaker to you, but if you've been watching for more than one second you should have gone 'eh' already. It has no limitations, and any 'rule' wrestling has ever had? They break within seconds.

  185. 6 man match? Battle royal and tag titles match on pre ahow. 7 matches on main show. Still a TON of terminator trailers and othet filler

    ReplyDelete
  186. Bray/Taker and Sting/HHH won't go further than 10-15 minutes. Brock/Reigns might go 15-20 minutes. So half of the matches will take up to an hour. Three matches for the other three hours.

    ReplyDelete
  187. Yes, very! Thanks for asking

    ReplyDelete
  188. Sting vs HHH is going 50 minutes. You're forgetting the 10 minute entrance, the 35 minute match (long selling periods) and the 5 minutes for Sting to leave the ring.

    ReplyDelete
  189. Yes, I realize there is a lot of stupid stuff that goes on in wrestling. I've long advocated for killing Irish whips. But the story itself needs boundaries otherwise viewers lose interest. They should aspire to something more than a ham-fisted way of telling a story.

    ReplyDelete
  190. OK, I laughed.

    ReplyDelete
  191. So Lesnar/Wyatt's vs Shield/Authority?



    That'd be fucking awesome. Hoss as fuck Survivor Series match.
