They tried to find what's likeable about Roman and "shows up for work" is the best they could come up with.

Roman: But this was a contest for women!

Heyman: Yeah, and my client beat their brains out.

Roman: Oh, I, I can't stand it any longer. This whole promotion is insane. Insane, I tell you! Daahh! Aaah! I can be lazy too! Look at me! Hi, I'm a worthless employee, just like Brock Lesnar! Give me a main event push! Ooh, I turn gross and purple at the drop of a hat, but nobody minds! I'm doing the same two moves for ten minutes straight. Give me a raise! Now I'm returning to work which means shuffling around like an idiot. But it doesn't matter, because I'm Brock Lesnar! I don't need to cut my own promos, 'cause someone else will do it for me. DANT! DANT-DA-DANT-DANT!

Brock: Hey, you okay, Leakee?

Roman: I'm better than okay. I'm Brock Lesnar.

Brock: Heh. You wish.

Roman: Oh, hi, Mr. McMahon! I'm the worst non-Khali worker in the world. Time to go home to my cabin and eat a deer. What's this? "Extremely High Voltage." Well, I don't need to sell because, because I'm Brock Lesn--

The smartest thing they could do with Roman is the Rock heel turn from Deadly Game, but they won't, they're not that aware anymore.

This is cyber bulling and I will not stand for it.


I swear to christ the only wrestling storyline more played out than a michaels/jannety split is rogue babyface vs heel authority

I miss when authority figures were rarely seen old guys in suits who came out to establish punishments to the heels after they did something really bad by making em fight the face

Even Teddy "Tag Team" Long was a breath of fresh air

EDIT: In summary, I miss Jack Tunney

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.

Full list of Undertaker's non-Wrestlemania matches, 2011-present:

2011: none
2012: none
2013: 3 (Live event Waco, TX - Taker/Sheamus def. Barrett/Sandow | RAW taping England - Shield def. Hell No/Taker | SD taping England - Taker def. Ambrose)
2014: none
2015: 6 (Summerslam - Taker def. Lesnar | 3x Live Events, Mexico - Taker/Kane def. Strowman/Harper | Hell in a Cell - Lesnar def. Taker | Survivor Series - Taker/Kane def. Wyatt/Harper)
2016: none
2017: Royal Rumble match
2018: none so far

I feel pretty confident that no, there will be no Taker match at a live event before Mania.

If saying WWE is terrible and bad was a recipe for banning everyone in this thread would be banned.

I on the other hand like Roman Reigns, making me the third most positive person in here.

I end up getting fourth because I'm a huge Cena fan but now he's so self-deprecating that it's really just codependency on my part.

Band-aids don't fix arrow wounds


I'm so confused because RAW is usually the better wrote show but all the stories for their matches leading into Wrestlemania are eye-rolling bad while Smackdown's writing is usually eye-rolling bad but almost all their big profile matches are "We just want a good match" (AJ/Nakamura, Asuka/Charolette, and the Tag-Team Triple Threat)

quote:

Last night's Raw increased nine percent over last week in the ratings and did the best number since the post-Royal Rumble episode, averaging 3.35 million viewers.

What's noticeable is that despite the fact that there was no real advertised main event, the third hour held up much better than usual. It was the highest rated third hour since the Monday after WrestleMania last year.

The show opened with 3.351 million viewers for hour one and increased to 3.429 million viewers for the second hour. This was the first week of Daylight Savings Time, and the second hour has traditionally been the highest rated in recent years once DST kicks in. The third hour only dropped to 3.275 million, which was just 2.3 percent down from hour one, the best such audience retention since July of last year.

Not sure if you guys are joking but it's pretty obvious that the reason the rating has held up is that Braun's promo had the words appear on screen, retaining the deaf demo for the third hour.
