GFW's only show thus far was literally NJPW's biggest PPV (well, until this year) just with JR and Matt Striker calling it.

It was also awesome, and it would be cool if they did more of that.

You could also watch the NJPW show on AXS, which is pretty awesome, being pretty much highlights of the last few years of New Japan.

I mean, they were good, competent, and dare-I-say-entertaining promos, which is something special in and of itself considering the recent history of Raw

Who is exactly how Brock should respond. Roman has done poo poo since he's arrived in the WWE. He's not on Brock's Radar, He's not a HHH, an Undertaker, a Cena. Who the gently caress is this kid to step in Brock's domain.

D-Bry now looks like complete poo poo imo. There's really no way to save face after the Rumble debacle, considering his promos in the past couple weeks. WWE hosed a duck on this one, big time.

If WWE committed to pulling him out of the grave they just dug him, they still could. He hasn't been booked bad long enough to be underground yet.

That said, he's getting a casket match with Kane on Thursday, so obviously they are not reversing course. They still could, but they won't.

I just hope Bryan realises that staying in the midcard and having good-great matches with Cesaro and Ziggler etc. for hopefully a ton of money is a better option than going to Japan and ruining his poo poo cranking out 5* matches with Okada and Styles for not as much. He still has it, but there's always going to be a question mark over his head for a lot of people with regards to his neck.

People aren't upset that he looks bad. They're upset that they didn't get the story they wanted.

If they give the crowd the story they want, Daniel Bryan will be immediately rehabilitated. It will seem miraculous, and it would be, because that's what it takes to get the WWE to remove all these notions of "looking bad," which only exist in the minds of idiot men who came in a time thirty years-past and the folks who have latched on to that thinking despite the disservice it does to them.

The thing is, even the WWE understands this. Because they're trying to reconstruct the narrative of Roman Reigns right now, despite how loving awful he looked, in a classical sense, last night. They just don't want to believe that they can apply the same rehabilitation to Bryan, because he's not their guy.

just have curtis axel claim he never got to enter, have The Authority use it as an excuse to do a do-over shorter rumble with like 20 people to get the shot off of Reigns, and then have someone who's actually over win the 2nd time. it's super loving cheap but there's still ways to get roman out of that spot and someone else in there

Why would they want to? The correct person won the Rumble. It's not Vince's fault these shiftless millennials want to cheer for some ugly little goat-faced runt. Don't they know a Real Man when they see one? Women think he's attractive! He's great at reading the incredibly humorous, bad-rear end scripts that are written for him. He has the best hair and the best arms. He has champion written all over him. Now if only he could wrestle in trunks, really show off those quads...

I'm guessing it's probably to do with PPV stuff in Australia and them not being happy about WWE airing the main events from the Rumble for free.

Reigns could work if he were like Goldberg- monster faces are hard to pull off but it's what he's good at.

They really only seem to know how to write one kind of face and Reigns isn't enough of a good talker to make it his own.

it was basically unsweetened, I suspect they overdubbed a few cheers into it but they didn't mute the mics any further than they already did live

One time a guy stole some downhill skis out of my jeep and I was so mad I punched a mailbox. I'm against crime, and I'm not ashamed to admit it.


Transcribed Roman raw interview:

Byron: Hi Roman. You look like you've got something to say. Do you?

Roman: [Sylvester voice] Yes, I certainly do! [normal voice] Hello there Byron. I know there's a lot of people who don't like me and wish I would go away. I think we got off on the wrong foot. I know I can come off a little proactive, and for that I'm sorry. But if everyone could find a place in their hearts for the little dog that nobody wanted, I know we can make them laugh and cry until we grow old together.

This was a home run. Faith restored.
