Pro Wrasslin' Thread

so, what's everybody's excitement (or lackthereof) level for Wrestlemania?


this will be the first Mania that I can watch Live but honestly...man, I don't really care about it that much.

The last RAW ended in maybe the worst fashion possible (tug of war?) and there are very mismatched or generic fights (ladder match is overbooked, Cena vs. Rusev is just so pointless, Wyatt vs. Taker would be better if Wyatt was more important, Sting vs. HHH isn't truly WWE vs. WCW because I never considered HHH to be "the guy" on WWE)


also, if Reigns and Cena both win (I think it would take both), I think there is going to be a gigantic "CancelWWENetwork" storm

Thanks for creating this, lol.

I've seen some funny theories as to the big swerve they might pull at WM. Or just having Reigns beat Lesnar clean, Lesnar to shake his hand, and raise his arm as the entire WWE roster comes out and applauds.

Lesnar needs to go over clean. He won't, but he should. Him re-signing does give me some hopes that he will not drop the title though.

yeah. That's the only way I see it happening.


If Reigns wins it would be one of the hardest-to-believe results ever. Lesnar destroyed Cena who, despite all the crap he gets, is 100 times the "star" Reigns is. Then, Lesnar beat Cena and Rollins in the RR triple threat. If they have Reigns win, it'll ruin the myth of Lesnar and show how desperate they are to put Reigns over

I don't like Roman Reigns.
Neither does about 90% of the WWE audience, but that hasn't stopped them from putting the belt on on someone before.

I would be interested to see what the split is. I think 99%+ of smarks hate him like they do Cena, but he gets so much support from little kids (where most merch comes from I bet) and women that they're going to use him like a cash cow.

I can see that.

With that being said there was a time where Cena was universally loved by almost all the audience. Then he got shoved down our throats and the fans eventually turned on him and we have what we have now. He still brings in $$$$ though so I see why they want to milk him for all they can.

Reigns.. I dunno. Even though I'm sure some kids and chicks dig him I don't see him being the guy that they pay to see. I could be totally wrong though, wouldn't be the first time. I mean you can be way over and draw $$$ without being a great wrestler as long as you can talk and have that "it" factor. Reins can't really talk on the mic, and his moveset is very limited at this point, and unless he has a technician in there with him he's not going to have a good match over 10 minutes. I just think they strapped the rocket to him too soon especially when they have other deserving guys on the roster.

Maybe I'm wrong and Reigns turns out like the Rock who sucked at first and everyon boo'd hardcore. I just don't see it though.

The thing to me that makes a guy a great WWE superstar is working the mic....that is the #1 quality I look for, and as you note Reigns is terrible.

The announcing I assume? It's pretty bad.

Anyhow I just always loved the Generico-Steen rilvary. Always have had good chemistry. It's carried over to NXT in WWE now which is cool.

The aformentioned Kevin Steen(owens) and Finn Balor(Devitt) had a pretty darn good match on Nxt tonight.

It's the main reason I keep it. Nxt is worth my 10$, plus when i decide to impulse want to watch a PPV I can.

This is plainly false. Reigns has plenty of fans outside of the vocal minority of fans who hate "pushes."

The IC Ladder match could be kinda cool, eh?
