So how many weeks until they go back to the well of having Vince or Heyman say a bunch of racist poo poo about Samoans to get Roman cheered?

The rumor backstage since basically post-last Mania was he was unhappy with his performance, felt he could do better, and wasn't against coming back

Cena probably won't be able to get a better performance out of him, new hip or no

That Raw was so loving bad, holy poo poo. The Mania Preshow is gonna have to have like 5 matches to keep the main show from becoming a bloated pile of poo poo.

Roman/Brock
Miz/Finn/Seth
Alexa/Nia
Bar/Braun
CW Finals
Kurt & Ronda/Steph &Trips
Cena/Undertaker
AJ/Nakamura
Usos/New Day/Bludgeon Bros
Orton/Roode/Jinder
Charlotte/Asuka
Shane/Ziggler I guess?
Pimp Rapist Battle Royal
Bayley/Sasha?
Zayn/KO?

Possibly 15 matches WM30, also at least a 5 hour show, had a total of 8 matches, with one being on the preshow. Nothing is getting any significant amount of time.

My friend got a hug from Braun yesterday. Braun has a exaggerated look of horror on his face in the picture.

At least one good thing came of WWE coming to Detroit. Haven't heard about the dark match yet.

Presenting Brock Lesnar as a badass loner who shows up to work when he feels like it and Roman as the loyal employee who goes crying to management about it will surely get the Wrestlemania crowd firmly on the Big Dogs side.

retirement is nice but somewhere close to 7 figures for 20 minutes of entrance and 20 minutes of quarter speed wrestling a year sounds nicer

I mean considering it probably takes him two months to recover from that 20 minutes it sounds less appealing

No dark match. Braun took the mic, said he wasn't finished and then power slammed Dawson, then chased Dash up to the announce table and slammed him through the table to send the crowd home.

Also Braun should tag with Ellsworth in a team where Ellsworth just has to show up and stand in the tag corner.

Wait really? What happened?

Too many investments in the coal industry. Taker has been spending a lot of his free time in real estate, that weekend warrior biker thing, and coal. Guess which one lost him money?

In fact, there was a youtube video that I can't find now where he was decked out in his full Ministry Undertaker garb in a coal mine talking about he is the Undertaker, he knows what goes on underneath the soil of the Earth, then he picks up a piece of coal and says two things happen. One is the future, the other is death. He does the roll eye thing and a cave in happens, which killed like four miners.

And so here we are.

There's pretty much zero chance Taker wrestles before Wrestlemania, right? There's a live show near me on March 30th, and if they were gonna have him do a shake-off-the-cobwebs match I wouldn't mind checking it out. Otherwise I'm probably gonna skip.

(I doubt they'll back down because you know they've already had the trophy made.)
