Wrestlemania XXXI Thread: The Third Hour (9-10 p.m. EST)

Well given Disqus' problems it seems silly to break down these into hourly threads but like the WWE once we commit to a failed idea at the BoD we gotta see it through.

Hopefully you are enjoying the card or the thread.

For the record my stream is awesome so far.

Peace!

    Say "moose and squirrel!"

    Fuck Disqus blows ass tonight

    ReplyDelete
  5. Time for Cena to destroy another up and comer!

    ReplyDelete
  6. My stream is awesome because I don't hate the Network.

    ReplyDelete
  7. The one match with solid build that I'm looking forward to. Please don't suck and don't turn Lana..

    ReplyDelete
  8. Cena/Rusev better get 30 for it to get dark enough for Taker/Bray

    ReplyDelete
  9. Sting jobbed in the vidya game advert, too.

    And they probably spoiled the ending of Reigns/Lesnar, AND Cena/Rusev.

    ReplyDelete
  10. It'll be interesting to see who the crowd cheers for here.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Do they have the guts to let Rusev win again?

    ReplyDelete
  12. How soon did we predict this match happening? May?

    ReplyDelete
  13. I'm having fun

    ReplyDelete
  14. I CRUSH moose and squirrel!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Hearing Danielle and Matt put over Rusev as this super nice, smiling, fan-friendly, gracious guy kind of killed his aura for me a little.

    ReplyDelete
  16. When the sun sets, Cena and Rusev will go home.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Yay! Can't wait for the new Cena colors!

    ReplyDelete
  18. It's gotten better for me. Keeping me logged in, at least. I need to manually refresh, though, for new comments.

    ReplyDelete
  19. #CENAWINSLOL

    Before we even begin.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Let's go... **** match.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Yeah, I noticed that they had the Triple H and Orton matches correct in there. Makes you wonder about the others.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Heels went over on both preshow matches and Sting/HHH. Guessing the faces take the rest.

    ReplyDelete
  23. And now Disqus is all messed up again

    ReplyDelete
  24. Well, precedent dictates we should get a Volkov runin.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Keep reloading the page, eventually it will kick in.

    ReplyDelete
  26. That means Brock goes over. Not happening.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Thaddeus MountainMarch 29, 2015 at 7:02 PM

    Hahaha, no.

    #LOLCENAWINS

    ReplyDelete
  28. I have no idea what that means for the main event, then.

    ReplyDelete
  29. So....holy God how long is Taker/Wyatt gonna be? I hope last year was just an off night for Taker.

    ReplyDelete
  30. MURICA! FUCK YEAH!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Mister CrestleManiaMarch 29, 2015 at 7:02 PM

    This is my pick for show stealer, I don't know why

    ReplyDelete
  32. Hasn't it been planned since WM last year?

    ReplyDelete
  33. Alexander Rusev
    December 25, 1985 - March 29, 2015


    Quite a shame. Guy is in the top three workers in the WWE right now.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Boo, Disqus was working for like 30 seconds.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Keep reloading, it will kick in.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Maybe for CrestleMania it will.

    ReplyDelete
  37. BULLYING! FUCK YEAH!

    ReplyDelete
  38. This feud has been the equivalent of a fast and furious movie, stupid..cheesy...and insanely fun.

    Or a better analogy would be Rocky 4, but whatever I'd thought I'd be a little relevant to the times.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Faces as identified by Vince K. McMahon.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Biff Kensington Has a PosseMarch 29, 2015 at 7:03 PM

    I'm rapidly approaching no fucks given territory with the rest of this card. I've seen what I need to see, and the only matches left will probably just piss me off. This crowd is nowhere near virulent enough to make a Reigns win a fun trainwreck.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Because the rest of the matches have been ok at best?

    ReplyDelete
  42. Cena wins but if it means that belt is elevated I'm fine with it.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Let's go Rusev! Destroy!!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Why isn't Volkoff singing the anthem?!

    ReplyDelete
  45. will cena sit in the accolade for 15 minutes to kill time????

    ReplyDelete
  46. Mister CrestleManiaMarch 29, 2015 at 7:03 PM

    I've had Art carbo-loading

    ReplyDelete
  47. Rusev's entrance immediately trumps HHH.

    ReplyDelete
  48. So.. Cena, Taker, Reigns from here on in, right?

    ReplyDelete
  49. I'm actually thinking we might get at least a *** match here, guys. Let's just hope LOLCenaWins doesn't happen.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Best national anthem ever.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Special Rusev music YES

    ReplyDelete
  52. UP! UP! UP! SALUTE! SALUTE!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I fucking love Rusev. I just wish I had any hope of him winning this match.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Rusev got a better entrance than Sting. Huh.

    Well, fuck.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Because Rusev is awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I like how every time a thread starts working, we switch.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Only one hour and 57 minutes left. They don't have the time

    ReplyDelete
  58. Mister CrestleManiaMarch 29, 2015 at 7:04 PM

    Neither sir.

    ReplyDelete
  59. This is glorious.

    ReplyDelete
  60. LOL. Uber Russian entrance. Okay, this is kind of awesome and why I love WrestleMania.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Shit. They should've told me to rise. GO RUSEV GO!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Russian honor guard!!!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I don't care. I'm cheering for Russia here.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Charismatic eNegro Jef VinsonMarch 29, 2015 at 7:04 PM

    Rusev gets distracted when this pic hits the big screen:


    http://fightbooth.com/wp-content/gallery/lana/cjperry.jpg



    Turns into the AA, gets pinned.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Ooo la Lana.

    ReplyDelete
  66. This is gloriously over the top

    ReplyDelete
  67. Ok, Rusev's entrance is fantastic

    ReplyDelete
  68. I'd defect for Lana

    ReplyDelete
  69. Mister CrestleManiaMarch 29, 2015 at 7:04 PM

    LOVING this entrance

    ReplyDelete
  70. Biff Kensington Has a PosseMarch 29, 2015 at 7:04 PM

    LANA!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Yay, Lana's back!

    ReplyDelete
  72. I'm so drunk I was stlll on hour one till 5 minutes ago

    ReplyDelete
  73. RUSEV RIDING TANK?!

    THIS NOT UKRAINE!

    ReplyDelete
  74. Vince must've just watched Rocky IV.

    ReplyDelete
  75. They should have had Nikolai Volkov come out to sing for everyone.

    ReplyDelete
  76. When is Rocky Balboa coming out?

    ReplyDelete
  77. I'll never forget when Sting let that youngster HHH beat him. I hope Hunter appreciates the rub.

    ReplyDelete
  78. "Its my time now" HAS RUSEV ALIGNED WITH DX?!?!?!?!

    ReplyDelete
  79. Rusev - Hey HHH, now THIS is a tank!

    ReplyDelete
  80. This entrance is like a bad stage production of a Cold War Drama

    ReplyDelete
  81. Best entrance of the night. Just elaborate enough and it actually makes sense.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Now THAT'S... an entrance.

    ReplyDelete
  83. On a fucking TANK! All the lulz.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Extant1979 - Extreme SuperstarMarch 29, 2015 at 7:04 PM

    I've been able to hum the Russian national anthem for 30-plus years, because of Vince McMahon and the WWF/E.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Great entrance for Rusev.

    ReplyDelete
  86. How is it that Rusev hasn't said "I must break you" at least once?

    ReplyDelete
  87. holyfuck that rules

    ReplyDelete
  88. Oh my god, this is glorious.

    ReplyDelete
  89. They should have Putin do a run-in and help Rusev retain

    ReplyDelete
  90. Oh, that is awesomely over the top.

    ReplyDelete
  91. They really should just go all the way with this and have a Putin impersonator walk out with Rusev.

    ReplyDelete
  92. RUSEV ON A TANK!!


    I'm giving the match an extra star JUST for that.

    ReplyDelete
  93. STILL not as overblown and self-parodying as HHH's entrance.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Biff Kensington Has a PosseMarch 29, 2015 at 7:05 PM

    TANK! TAAAAAANK!

    ReplyDelete
  95. What too subtle?

    ReplyDelete
  96. Ruse on a tank. Your argument is invalid.

    ReplyDelete
  97. This is amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  98. Rusev is my hero after that.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Arrival by tank, amazing

    ReplyDelete
  100. I was all in on Rusev from the beginning... he'd better win tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  101. I should play this for the Cold War lecture I have to give to 150 college students on Thursday.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Had my third bad buffer of my stream for the night. Not anything terrible, but this is by far the most trouble I've had with a live stream in the year I've had the Network.

    ReplyDelete
  103. cabspaintedyellowMarch 29, 2015 at 7:05 PM

    So when did Russia become the Gestapo?

    ReplyDelete
  104. Now that's how you go for a cheesy badass entrance...RUSEV COMING OUT IN A TANK!

    ReplyDelete
  105. But it's ten times as legitimately awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  106. Man, you know Rusev's serious when he's posing on top of the DX tank. That won the Monday Night Wars, you know.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Lana looks amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  108. Double entrance music for Rusev, let the stalling Commence!!!

    ReplyDelete
  109. Thaddeus MountainMarch 29, 2015 at 7:05 PM

    A tank. A MOTHERFUCKING TANK.

    ReplyDelete
  110. LOL This is so over the top and stupid that it works

    ReplyDelete
  111. Cena should come out to Living In America.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Too bad he's losing or this would have been really great

    ReplyDelete
  113. I would have bet money on Rusev entering shirtless on horseback to poke fun at Putin.

    ReplyDelete
  114. FUCK YOU DISQUS

    ReplyDelete
  115. Dear WWE,


    PLEEEEEEEEASE let Rusev win, if only just for that entrance.


    Thank you,
    Me

    ReplyDelete
  116. Charismatic eNegro Jef VinsonMarch 29, 2015 at 7:06 PM

    Yall couldn't get Volkoff to do the Soviet anthem?

    ReplyDelete
  117. Mister CrestleManiaMarch 29, 2015 at 7:06 PM

    This is legitimately the greatest entrance ever. Fucking tank lol

    ReplyDelete
  118. LANA looking beautiful tonight <3

    ReplyDelete
  119. This is glorious. Put the title on him ASAP and see how far you can ride this train

    ReplyDelete
  120. Will Hogan change clothes and also interfere in this match?

    ReplyDelete
  121. Had total Rocky 4 flashbacks there.

    ReplyDelete
  122. I can't wait for the doc 10 years from now on how the tank turned business around.

    ReplyDelete
  123. How over the top do you expect Cena's entrance to be?

    ReplyDelete
  124. Nah, they got Springsteen to do Born In The USA live. They still don't know what that song is about.

    ReplyDelete
  125. Thaddeus MountainMarch 29, 2015 at 7:06 PM

    "Because fuck you, pal"-- Vince

    ReplyDelete
  126. "The champion should never come out first, Monsoon"

    ReplyDelete
  127. cabspaintedyellowMarch 29, 2015 at 7:06 PM

    Lana is looking CHOICE tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  128. I like that they give him the prayer in his entrance. It plays on America's fears of Russia AND Islam in one fell swoop.

    ReplyDelete
  129. He arrived in a freakin tank!!

    ReplyDelete
  130. So in kayfabe Putin gave Rusev a tank?

    ReplyDelete
  131. Bray's entrance isn't going to work because it won't be dark enough.

    ReplyDelete
  132. The pop if Kurt Angle interfered in this match...

    ReplyDelete
  133. Isn't Nikolai like in REALLLLLLY poor health right now?

    ReplyDelete
  134. Cut him some slack, Viince just heard it for the first time.

    ReplyDelete
  135. Crowd would be like, who?

    ReplyDelete
  136. He's giving Rusev tanks for all the support.


    Tanks! High five! Anyone?

    ReplyDelete
  137. Cena comes out riding a turkey

    ReplyDelete
  138. They're both extremely dangerous.

    ReplyDelete
  139. Considering he's world champion somewhere else right now, that seems very unlikely.

    ReplyDelete
  140. Thaddeus MountainMarch 29, 2015 at 7:07 PM

    Who's to say he didn't give him a tank for real?

    ReplyDelete
  141. Honestly expecting Cena to turn up in a Blackhawk here, with a full military flyover.

    ReplyDelete
  142. Lana's got an Emma Frost look going on. And I'm 500% okay with that.

    ReplyDelete
  143. Calling it now, Cena makes Rusev pass out with his submission because Lana refuses to throw in the towel because "showing compassion would only serve to lose the man she loves" tell me that's not good storytelling right there.

    ReplyDelete
  144. I know just saying.

    ReplyDelete
  145. Well, they've done all they can to get people to cheer Cena. I wonder if they will?

    ReplyDelete
  146. This match feels very similar to the Cena/Wyatt match last year, in that they have a real chance here to use John Cena to boost a new superstar right up the card with instant credibility. Last year they failed to pull the trigger and in the eyes of many fans Bray still hasn't quite recovered from that loss. Let's see if they make the right call here.

    ReplyDelete
  147. The champion never had a bad ass tank before.

    ReplyDelete
  148. The pnly way rusevs entrance could be better is if it went second

    ReplyDelete
  149. Oh god... mini movie for Cena too.

    ReplyDelete
  150. "I want you! I want you!"

    ReplyDelete
  151. The world is dangerous


    :(

    ReplyDelete
  152. Yeah, the America that's depicted in this video package doesn't exist anymore.

    ReplyDelete
  153. Ike's warning about the Military/Industrial Complex? That's...not really appropriate for Cena.

    ReplyDelete
  154. Interesting that they let him do the terrorist prayer.

    ReplyDelete
  155. Word Life... this is basic Reganomics!

    ReplyDelete
  156. The fuck is this? This is like a middle school civics project

    ReplyDelete
  157. Thaddeus MountainMarch 29, 2015 at 7:08 PM

    Know why it's the greatest? A MOTHERFUCKING TANK

    ReplyDelete
  158. Does Vince know this is 2015 and not 1975?

    ReplyDelete
  159. Extant1979 - Extreme SuperstarMarch 29, 2015 at 7:08 PM

    Oh dear God with these mini-movies. Why not just come out to Living In America, like Apollo in Rocky IV?

    ReplyDelete
  160. Mister CrestleManiaMarch 29, 2015 at 7:08 PM

    LOL at the video making America heel

    ReplyDelete
  161. cabspaintedyellowMarch 29, 2015 at 7:08 PM

    This WM is absolutely fucking absurd.


    And I love it.

    ReplyDelete
  162. Is that not a Sumo thing?

    ReplyDelete
  163. Is anyone else a little bit uncomfortable by so much war imagery being used on both sides for this match, given that there's very real U.S./Soviet tensions going on right now?

    ReplyDelete
  164. Did I accidentally change the channel? What the hell?

    ReplyDelete
  165. You know its on ... Dwight Eisenhower

    ReplyDelete
  166. That photo of the dudes sitting on the beam gives me the heebie jeebies every time.

    ReplyDelete
  167. BOO this man Santa Clara, do your country proud.

    ReplyDelete
  168. He started that way then went into the Muslim bow.

    ReplyDelete
  169. Great Americans in John Cena's vid:


    Edison: Fraud
    Ford: Anti-Semite

    ReplyDelete
  170. LOL, these entrances are pathetically overblown tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  171. Cena is led to the ring by Senator George McCarthy

    ReplyDelete
  172. And the hilarious part is he's going to get booed.

    ReplyDelete
  173. Anyone else feel like this show is just so over the top tonight? Like more than usual.

    ReplyDelete
  174. Stream has been great, show has been better than I thought, but hasn't reached "better than a monthy special" yet. Haven't really seen a whole lot of WWE trolling, outside of the battle royal finish.

    Rusev on a tank is just awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  175. Huh...intersting perspective. Hard to believe no one has brought this point up yet.

    ReplyDelete
  176. "Mister Gorbachev, tear down this Rusev!"

    ReplyDelete
  177. Oh I'm glad "trailblazing" by Steve jablonsky is back. Fucking awesome tune.

    ReplyDelete
  178. and Senator Ted Cruz

    ReplyDelete
  179. LittleBillyBusickMarch 29, 2015 at 7:09 PM

    Rusev is punching way above his weight with Lana. Kudos to the Bulgarussian

    ReplyDelete
  180. Interstellar 2...Cena boogaloo

    Wrestlemania 31

    ReplyDelete
  182. Well I guess that's true.

    ReplyDelete
  183. I really doubt Cena's uber-entrance can top Rusev's. He'd have to parachute from a jet in order to top it.

    ReplyDelete
  184. Thaddeus MountainMarch 29, 2015 at 7:09 PM

    Cena loses because Dubya.

    ReplyDelete
  185. The funniest part will be when he still gets Cena Sucks chants.
