>inevitable Kurt Angle sighting
Going to be a good royal rumble lads
Where was Cena tonight? He was suppose to be on Smackdown this week, but they made zero mention of it on RAW.
Reminded me of when Punk walked out and they avoided all mentions of him the night after.
Dolph doing the stomp now triggers me 2bh
If it's not his finisher he shouldn't do it
CAN THEY FUCKING STOP WITH ROMAN DEFYING THE GOD DAMN ODDS ALL THE FUCKING TIME?
>destroys all 4 LoN members on a weekly basis at the same time
>pulls through a stacked special referee match
>is going to fucking beat the entire roster to retain his title
>cucked Cena's return with his own feud
>kicks out of finishers
We fucking get it. Was it necessary to ruin the RR for him 2 years in a row?
They're more likely to be doing the injuring than getting injured desu
also didn't one of the divas use the Styles clash, or something similar a few years ago? not that WWE would let AJ do it given his history
Another lackluser Jericho return.
Slater has a new group with Axel, Rose and Bo - only segment worth watching.
Main event was a mess. Announced that Reigns is defending his title IN the Rumble.
>yfw Nakamura joins the league of Nations and jobs to Cena and Reigns then leaves before WWE ever clear Bryan to compete
>Cena missing Raw tonight
I'm worried. When was the last time he missed a show not counting injury or hiatus? When creative simply had nothing for him? Roman's going to replace him faster than expected.
>Only indie guy there is Itami, the rest are full fledged WWE guys now.
Lol what the fuck is this WWE-tier revisionism
Bryan, Zayn and Seth were all top guys in the indies, winning multiple world championships. Bryan was even supposed to be THE guy for Evolve before he went back to WWE. Cesaro was successful too. Itami is the least "indie" guy there since he mostly wrestled for big Japanese promotions.
Just because they've had a few years in WWE doesn't mean they aren't "indie guys." Bryan even adheres to William Regal's "your wrestling career is everything you did before you came to WWE, everything else is just a bonus."
>mfw vince looked online and saw smarks posting "roman can't ruin the rumble this year" and purposely changed the match because of it
He would if he was scheduled to win the Rumble.
From a business standpoint, having the Rumble be for the title is idiotic in this era.
There's zero way to build a Wrestlemania feud with no real challengers. The whole point of the Rumble is so the champion knows they have an opponent.
>mfw vince means roman defends it in a separate royal rumble match
>mfw there's actually two royal rumble matches
Now that the Breeze angle is done do you think tonights loss could be the start of the Dolph heel turn that they wanted to do earlier in the year? Maybe go with the classic 'frustrating losing streak' angle
>It wasn't enough that Roman beats up an entire stable all by himself, won with Vince at ringside, won with Vince as special guest ref and "THAT CROOKED REF ARMSTRONG", ate two brogue kicks and still kicked out, he needs to be put in the actual royal rumble as champion, something that's not been done in 20+ years and the championship isn't even vacated.
>Implying Jerishill is winning anything
>Final four will be Cena, Reigns, Brock and Hunter
>Triple H is an actual contender to be the winner in the current year we reside in.
Getting hard to defend this kinda booking. How do you even get excited for this?
>Christ they couldn't even get the road to Wrestlemania right this year. That's one of the few things they usually do well.
Have you not been paying attention
>2014 WM was supposed to be Orton vs Batista, Bryan vs Sheamus and Punk vs HHH
>2015 RR was a disaster on all fronts that even the Rock couldn't get Roman over and the A+ player had to save things with the cash-in
Oh look, WWE is siphoning all that great talent! It is an exciting time to be a WWE fan!
What's that? The boooking is still a pile of horse shit? All that talent will be reduced to mediocre bull shit once they leave NXT? Ok. W-what a day to be a wwe fan.
If HHH is champ in 2016, I'm not watching for another 10 years.
>in b4 see you next week
I have the will power to stay away from this shit product, I've done it before and I can do it again.
>tfw this was done before her prime thickness
Remember when Big E became IC champ?
I'd rather not. 13 time world champion and 90% of those are boring shit reigns. The best case scenario here is that Reigns eliminates Triple H who gets butthurt and screws him over setting up a match, and then the main event is Cena vs. Brock III.
>What would you call Roman's reign?
Given that he hasn't been champ for a month and this is only his first reign I don't know. Either way if Triple H main events wrestlemania I won't be around to know how his other reigns go.
It's a choice between shit and shittier.
There is a current trend of girls being rail-thin to the point they have a completely flat ass, flat chest, no muscle and a gap between their legs. This is seen as desirable by some. You can forgive people for using thick to describe people who have some fat and are at least toned.
It's his first true reign, and he may be a "boring" wrestler but the booking isn't doing him any favors.
Maybe it's time you just accepted that this company isn't geared towards your interests anymore.
Shit selection, but I'd go with Wyatt with Roman as my second choice. Out of everyone, I'd choose Lesnar with a surprise appearance or Dean had he been built up better over the last month or two.
I wonder if the winner of the rumble getting the title is in place to keep Lesnar or Reigns from the pin at Mania. Think about it...
A wrestler, let's say Heath Slater, wins the rumble and title. Loses to Brock at next ppv. Gets rematch at mania. Reigns also gets title rematch at mania. Slater eats pin so Lesnar and Reigns can keep looking strong.
Considering wrestling never ends they can't just put it on Roman right? There is no one left to conquer other than Brock or Cena. It won't be Roman vs Cena. It's most likely Roman vs Brock. Unless it's someone random like Ambrose.
The next decade will be Roman winning the title, getting beaten in dirty finishes then winning the title back. There doesn't need to be a credible threat as long as you can have le screwjobs and interference.
>Heath Slater beat Dolph Ziggler
>Heath Slater is now in a stable with Adam Rose, Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel
am i wrong to be fucking hype for this job squad 2.0 shit? i mean, they're going to turn face pretty quick right?
>i mean, they're going to turn face pretty quick right?
Hopefully. WWE now has, what, 5 heel factions? And no proper face stables to feud with them so we get cobbled together trash like The ECWs and The Romans.
They've got New Day, Wyatts, Authority*, League of Nations*, Job Squad 2.0, Cosmic Wasteland.
So that's 6. Out of all of those, the most likely team to turn face is Job Squad 2.0, and I'm guessing they go up against New Day first off. Then again, I feel like a Wyatt turn is coming. Maybe not full face, but they're definitely going after The Authority after Wrestlemania.
*sort of the same thing?
Sounds like another RAW where I just youtube 2-3 segments.
i love how they added in fake audience reactions and edited it to look like the opening segment last week was that was shit live and the audience had zero reaction, especially when vince was pushed lol
they made it sound loud as fuck
instead it was dead and cringeworthy as fuck
im already past the owens match
cooking some hot wings so im starting to live blog now
its shit as fuck, this entire angle is so lame and cheap
its not even clever at all
...now its a titus vs stardust match out of no where
nice to see RAW is still booking shit filler just 3 weeks from the Rumble
You know, I was happy for Roman to be champ heading into WM and facing Cena or Bork. But I really don't want him to win the Rumble again. It's so fucking unnecessary. At this point I'd be happy for anyone else (except Sheamus) to win it.
no wait, now its a ryboch match vs big show...skip
now bray is out here to fight the guy nobody cares about
>at the rumble match we're gona do exactly what we did last year and team up to take everyone out in the rumble...nobody cares
oh wait, now its a leage of faggots match vs the shitsos....another skip
now its here to fool the world vs slater...jesus christ fucking shit
entire 2nd part skipped
wheres the 3 part version?
>Rumble comes down to Roman and HHH
>LoN circling the ring
>IF YOU SMEEEELL
>Rock charges to the ring and lays out LoN
>Slides into the ring and looks at HHH
>turns and gives a Rock Bottom to Roman
>HHH picks him up and tosses him out
>final shot is Vince holding up HHH and Rock's arms
>Rock is the new Director of Operations
why the fuck are there so many watchwrestlings nowadays!
Not gonna happen. You're gonna get Royal Rumble 2015 2.0 for the simple fact of them erasing the reaction from 2015 and only ever showing 2016 instead. Same way they never show Cena losing his debut match.
Does wwe care if you re-use your same CC for another free trial ?
>it's a loudly screaming "who do you think you are huh? you're nothing!" match
The location of the Royal Rumble matters about as much as the location for RAWafterMania
It's going to be a crowd of international smarks who shit all over WWE's golden bbygurrrl
> maybe 40% at best
he literally addressed teh dropping in ratings and attendance and claimed he would fix it
this also explains why kids are filling the arena cause prices are probably cheap as fuck and nobody else is showing up
>bubba chases after xavier after he pushes devon
>the camera doesnt follow them
>the announcers dont talk about it
>bubba jumps back in the ring to almost break up the tag
>meaning it was scripted
>but nobody talked about it
>BORK IS BACK NEXT WEEK FUCK YES
>roman is already the champ
if he gets disqualified for counted out he retains
>literally the shittiest of stipulations to think we'll be sympathetic
>the raw table is back up....
what the fuck owens and ambrose broke the table, since when do they set up a new one mid-card?
>brock lesnar will win the rumble
>roman will get screwed to protect him
>THATS MUH LIVEFL HOOD
>ramen bork rematch
>but this time he goes over
>they try to make bork an authoritity member
>so then rawk can come out to help ramen in the main event
>huge pop in his home town
My only hope is that since they are doing anything they can to pull up ratings now that they will have some decent surprise returns to the rumble, even if they are just going to job to roman. In my dreams Kurt Angle comes back and wins the rumble so Bork can have a rematch for the belt. And Bork fucks up the shooting star press again.
>still that jacket
>still using y2j
>making a chant out of rooty tooties
he could just grow it back.
So he's definitely winning the rumble, right?
I wonder if Gallows and Anderson will be his muscle. Could be pretty based desu.
How do you think he'll be as champ?
winning the rumble puts you to the main event of wrestlemania.
so no, harper wouldnt job to lesnar at raw.
you have harper beat reigns buddies like an uso or ambrose, you have lesnar go against rollins at mania.
you have an interesting, fresh match at main event of mania, and you can put rollins over as a face by beating lesnar.
instead of having one road to WM, you have two.
Jesus Christ, that match would be god-awful.
>the royal rumble is for the WWE title
>implying AJ Styles name in WWE wouldn't be changed because it would remind people of AJ Lee
