I don't have many problems with Roman. It's Nia that I have issues with. She's not a good worker in any shape or form and has no business being in the ring. One day she's going to seriously hurt someone if she doesn't actually start putting forth the effort to improve. Combine that with her apparent ego problem backstage and its a recipe for disaster.

I prefer to think the vitriol is against Roman and Niaís booking moreso than them. I know thatís the case with me.

Roman and Nia are never gonna be this generationís Rock and Dump Matsumoto, but their booking is hindering their ability to get better.

And I thought it was going to be Asuka/Alexa

Seems they're doing their best to swerve or keep people guessing on what the actual plan for Mania is for a lot of people until there's like 3 weeks left, which makes it even more baffling they stuck with the one match everyone had an issue with (Reigns/Brock) for a full calendar year. When last Mania ended, everyone knew it was going to be Reigns/Brock the next Mania

3 weeks left to make sure the rest of the card is bad enough that they'll cheer Roman aka the mania 32 plan

They called her up too soon. She should have stayed an extra year or two in NXT.

Nia crying after a loss like a bitch. Send her to the junk bin like Kharma, the loser bitch. Where she can stand next to Finn and Seth, the impotent non-over bitches who will lose to The Miz in a bitchin match. At least it will be better than The Big Bitch Roman Reigns still getting booed for his big bitch tits he has under his vest while doing everything they can to make dumb bitches boo Brock for owning. What a bitch. Bitch.

By someone who knows literally nothing. Rey isn't signed yet, may be seriously injured and why in the hell would WWE not bother to have Cena's opponent not signed to a contract a month before WM?

Alexa and Nia's segment was....really, really good? WWE is usually so fake and that was such an uncomfortably real depiction of what emotional abuse and toxic relationships can be like. Alexa delivered it really well and Nia sold it absolutely perfectly. I think "big strong monster turns face, immediately starts crying" is really bad on principle, but I actually bought that there was a reason and this is a good "lowest point" for Nia.

Heís not going to be shoehorned into it. Heís fighting Taker despite how old he is, and Nakamura is getting Styles.

Taker doing anything in-ring ever again shouldn't make any sense considering how he left after losing to Roman + his incoherent promo at RAW 25 but I hate that I should probably agree with you

Cena seemed shocking "just a guy" tonight. The constant losing and pleading/whining is taking some luster off his star power, plus his in-ring work is rusty and lovely. Just another step in the master plan to get Reigns over by tearing down literally every other wrestler on the roster I guess.

I only watched on Youtube but boy oh boy the crowd seemed to not give a poo poo. I get the feeling they wanted a big pop for that triple threat mention, but nobody wants him within fifty miles of AJ vs. Nakamura.

I highly doubt that Cena will be in the WWE Championship match, if only because I have latched on to the idea that I am getting Shinsuke vs AJ at Wrestlemania and I'm clinging desperately to that idea.

That said, I am now pretty loving excited for Hardy/Bray..... AT THE HARDY COMPOUND!

Roman Reigns, good in the ring, is in a dumb worked shoot storyline where we're supposed to like the pro-corporate guy instead of the one just trying to get money easy. Hell, I don't like watching Kevin Nash in the ring but I loving love the dude for just trying to make the most money with the least work possible.

I missed the Nia segment after the match and still need to watch it

I think the story theyíre trying to tell is that Roman busts his rear end for the fans weekly while Brock doesnít give a poo poo about them

IMO if there was one single competent writer at wwe i think itíd be interesting if they played up Roman as 'he's out here doing shows every day even though the crowd boos him nonstop'. however no one at wwe could pull that off without it backfiring hilariously
