Come on now... who ISNT chomping at the bit to see Shane-Stroman?!
That reminds me, I also hate how WWE thinks Shane has to have a Mania match. At least they're not carting the Undertaker out there again.

That match is gonna be stupid.

No, that's isn't a joke at what Shane has been saying for his promos. This is literally a stupid match that is taking a spot away from someone because 98 year old Shane needs to be in Mania yet again.

yeah really.

I thought it would be less than likely he'd be back this year with all of the promotional stuff he was doing, but there was that comment he made last year about Vince being a phone call away.

If I were to do this as a circle chart, about 2/3's of that circle would be Taker staying home. no appearance. Not as Taker, not as American Badass, not as Mark Callaway. Nothing. I would like to think Taker is finally done and he's sitting at home watching this crappy product.

However...
20% chance that Taker shows up in character, chokeslams somebody in a throwaway segment and/or has speaking part in-ring.
If he's showing up to Mania, he's coming in full Taker gear. And if he's there in gear, he's chokeslamming somebody.

10%, Taker shows up out of character, does interview.
I made this one a little lower because I figure if he's gonna be there, he's gonna be there in full Taker gear. Or there's always that chance that he's supposedly fully retired and just does a normal interview.

5%, Taker gets a last minute match.
I really want to make the odds on this lower, but I can't. I know Vince would call Taker in a second if they need a 5-10 min timekiller.

I haven't signed up for peacock yet. Haven't decided if the mania match card is worth me actively doing that or not.

May as well take advantage of the $10 for 4 months deal. I think that expires soon. Unless the UX greatly improves, I’m not planning on renewing after my 4 months. I’ll throw down $5 for the month when there’s a PPV I want to watch (mostly the big four) but Peacock has killed my enjoyment of the network.

That's fair. I forgot all of that stuff he was tweeting earlier in the pandemic.

I never saw him in NXT so I don't know if he was this obnoxious there, but he is just insufferable.

He's so much more relatable in those 3 seconds after he botches and turns into a normal dude. This is the same thing they did with RVD when they dumbed him down into a stoner who just said cool and dude all the time. What's sad is Riddle is a legit bad ass but they've gone full comedy with him.

By the way, Peacock has a free 7 day trial for their premium tiers (which you'll need for WWE). You could sign up today or tomorrow and watch the HOF, Takeover, and Wrestlemania for free.

I already had a Xfinity account, so it's nice to automatically have a sub to the Network stuff. Not a fan of Peacocks stream quality for live events or content in general. I watched Fastlane to test everything out. Navigation isn't as good as the WWE Network either.

I gotta be honest, that was way too inside baseball for me. I'd rather wrestlers have a personal vendetta against each other instead of making fun of gimmicks or calling them a "mark." Why should I care about that? Why should I care about MJF "stealing" Jericho's ****? Tell me why you want to kill each other. And if the reason is you stole my scarf gimmick then I'm not interested. I like a good shoot promo but I think it's overdone, especially in AEW.

The topic of great promos made me think of this one, though. This might be my favorite promo of all time.

All fair points, I agree with you that shoot promos can be way overused.

One of my favorite promos of all time too...Jake was so good.
