Have you thanked your lord and savior today?
So does anyone have a definitive answer as to why spooky fedora man kisses people on the forehead before his finisher?
>Chris Jericho kicks off SmackDown with a promo about the Royal Rumble. WWE Tag Team Champions The New Day interrupt and remember Francesca The Trombone again. This segment leads to The New Day vs. The Usos and Dolph Ziggler
>The Usos and Dolph Ziggler defeated The New Day with a triple superkick
>Becky Lynch defeated Alicia Fox by submission
>The Miz comes out for another edition of Miz TV. His guest is Kevin Owens and WWE Intercontinental Champion Dean Ambrose. They talk about their Last Man Standing match at Royal Rumble. Ambrose ended up hitting Dirty Deeds on The Miz. Owens then hit a pop-up powerbomb on Miz to end the segment
>Bray Wyatt defeated Ryback
>Titus O'Neil defeated Stardust
>WWE World Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns defeated Rusev, Sheamus, King Barrett and WWE United States Champion Alberto Del Rio in a Handicap Match by DQ. The Usos ran down to even the odds and assist Reigns after the disqualification. The Wyatt Family then came to the ring and attacked, ending SmackDown
No one besides a crowd of Philly smarks gave a flying shit about Daniel Bryan post WM-30.
Hell most were chanting "CM Punk" during the Bryan segments.
>You got your Finn Balors, your Samoa Joes, your Sami Zayn, those journeymen, the guys who have been at it in this business for such a long time. It's such a great opportunity for them to sink their teeth in and reap the benefits of all their hard work. But, that being said, if they come in my ring, debut or not, I'm going to send their ass flying over that top rope. That's the way it's gotta be.
I really fucking hope they all didn't go for a cover. Nothing stupider than a ref counting multiple pins.
>Owens then hit a pop-up powerbomb on Miz to end the segment
That doesn't even make sense. Is Miz taking all these bumps (more than usual, at least) part of the gimmick now?
>Bray defeated Ryback
It's not fair bros
Ryback should be in the top of the card instead of this
Ryback is more fucking over than Bray is, which is a shame.
The otherwise dead Columbus, OH crowd reacted greatly to Ryback being in the ring, but the moment that he got pinned, the crowd went COMPLETELY silent.
>brayyy lmao defeats Ryback
>titus O'Neil defeats stardust again
Fucking WHY? Why do they even have a match? I like stardust, but who the fuck cares about some feud he has with happy negro that they never even once talk about themselves since forever and a half ago? Like they can't be that pressed for filler.
The King of Kings has no time for smiles
>not giving your opponent a handy in hopes he will splooge and drop you leaving you with a spent cooldown locked person to counter.
It's like you don't want to win. That man is out there giving it everything that he's got and you want to make fun of him.
Okay /wwe/ let's do something that will help discussions in the future.
Define this word.
That's one of the Bushwhackers, who by that stage were a comedy tagteam. So firstly he's doing it for laughs, and secondly that's how you shake hands in New Zealand.
How did I miss this? (It's LOLTNA, so I can understand why no one would give a shit.)
My fucking sides, they really can't catch a break, can they?
1. Someone who boos faces and cheers heels
2. Someone who thinks that indie wrestlers are more deserving than homegrown talent
3. Generally someone who is at an unhealthy weight who reads dirtsheets and listens to wrestling podcasts unironically.
>secondly that's how you shake hands in New Zealand.
Still on my Smarkbusters binge. I also notice, these guys REALLY liked Jack Swagger and Ryback, and have said that these guys were getting decent/great reactions from the crowd, at least in 2014.
Are they correct?
He was pretty over when he turned face on Rusev. That's about it though.
Even /wwe/ started kinda liking him when they were doing that Survivor Series storyline but he was never mega-over or anything.
da based guy is really over with his bants and chant
swaggers theme, wrestling and catch phrase were super over, hes still over.
I was expecting The Revenant to be 2 1/2 hours of Leo fighting a bear but it was actually 2 1/2 hours of Leo being the most angry person in the world
That is until Big E Langston wins the Royal Rumble and the bootyboy smarks OD on hate
>if he gets his Oscar this year people are going to say it's only because they refused to nominate minorities and his Oscar win will be ignored since everyone is boycotting it.
Such is life in harsh mother >the city of Leo.
they are just trying to live up to their hero and true leader seth A+ rollins.
That was the best part of that raw. They did their thing, they didn't have to cut a 20 minute Vincent promo, it was short and sweet and not 10 minutes longer than it needed to be like their last few promos.
Granted being the best thing on that raw is not exactly something to take back to the hometown.
If Zayn is in the Rumble, this is how to book it:
>Zayn comes out
>wrestles for about 10 minutes
>Owens slowly walks down to the ring
>Zayn notices him, tells him to get in the ring
>Zayn gets thrown over the top rope from the distraction
>the two brawl at ringside, maybe a table spot
>Owens takes his IC title and leaves laughing
Wrestlemania match right there.
>mfw Wyatt is the reverse Undertaker and has his own streak at WrestleMania, a losing streak for decades
0 - 20
Just because someone is in the rumble doesn't mean they're on the main roster. I fully expect to see 1-2 NXT guys who wont automatically go to the main roster. Maybe Joe and Zayn would be the most obvious. I can see Finn showing up to square off with Wyatt maybe before getting blindsided by Luke Harper.
>Just because someone is in the rumble doesn't mean they're on the main roster.
Case in point this is literally what they did with Bo and Rusev
>those three months of Rusev promos before he debuted the night after Mania
>FEED ME MORE
>HBK hype stomp with arm instead
Every Ryback match
Kiwis play Rugby Union well, we play Australian Rules Football and Rugby League well.
As for the sheep, Kiwis try to push the "Aussies fuck sheep" thing to cover for the fact that their entire largest port was once shut down on suspicion of a snake getting loose. Because they're fucking pussies.
>Doesn't change the fact that Based Buddy is the first-ever Australian champion in WWE history.
NXT is a development territory, but - sure, congratulations. Good job, Australia, you'll catch up with your sheepherding cousins one day.
Tell you what: You could hold them dear on sentimental "almost Australian" grounds so long as I can pull the "almost New Zealander" trick with the new guard of Australian talent.
Don't make me try to mark out for Bad Luck Fale.
Yes I said in your imagination cause there's no chance of "AJ Styles" and Daniel Bryan being 29 and 30. So you should figure it out in your own head and imagine who'd get a better pop cause to everyone else this isn't a possibility.
But you said the one I like better in my imagination. So it's not just an imaginary scenario with my real feelings determining the outcome, but an imaginary scenario in which my imaginary feelings determine the outcome.
Honestly I find this quite disturbing. It's like you're asking me to pretend I have magic powers.
>anon continues to teach Zen
You know I'm not >>891020, right? Even if I was, your answer would still be absurd. That anon was asking other people to imagine the scenario and other people did before you claimed that nobody could. So there ought to be some deeper meaning at work.
I mean, maybe you're just an idiot, but I would like to believe that you're some kind of latter-day sage. It would make the world more interesting.
Whaddaya say Rock? How 'bout it? You and me, the two biggest draws of the Attitude Era, The Game vs The Great One in the main event of the biggest Wrestlemania of all time? Sounds good, huh?
>Roman enters first
>"I'M A ONE MAN BAAAAAND"
>Roman throws him out of the ring within 10 seconds
>It's Curtis Axel, he cuts a promo about never being eliminated from the last RR
>Gets thrown out in 10 seconds just like Heath
>next 2 entrants are Adam Rose and Curtis Axel, Roman does the same with them and is alone in the ring again
>watching total divas
>I know it's gay
>buryng dolph this hard
>they're at summerslam or so
>full height of the terrible divas revolution
was there any dirt that came out about dolph?
I kind if like the guy but he's seriously getting rekt
>wwe has asked HBK to make a surprise return at the Royal Rumble
From a storyline standpoint Roman will survive 29 other wrestlers so if they can't get the job done then the COO will handle it
I laugh at morons who think HHH will come in at #30 and take the title off Roman when the entire feud is similar to Austin's feud where the heels (The Authority) will pull all stops in taking the champ's title away from him and failing hard until the feud ends and the champ moves on to the next one
If they want it to be a wrestlemania thing they still have plenty of time to build him up and feed him a decently powered guy at fastlane. I just hope that if by some miracle he does go over at mania, it's clean and not just because of the wyatts. Cause right now Harper is looking stronger than Bray, and that does not work too great as a leader.
BASED roman swag
jesus christ wwe let him ditch the shitty attire and have him wear suits and sunglasses he looks swag as fuck here god damn, wwe is killing my man, burying him
>This segment leads to The New Day vs. The Usos and Dolph Ziggler

HEART AND LIFEBEAT OF THE COMPANY
>>roman isnt over anymore
I honestly wouldn't say Roman has ever been over as a solo act.
He's gotten good pops here and there but "over" is a term to be used married with a certain consistency he has lacked.
His average reaction is "....wooooo...booooo.....wo-No, Boo."
I don't think Daniel Bryan really had THAT much to do with it.
People were pretty sour on him before that Rumble even happened because his push was obvious and very unwarranted, him winning the Rumble whether it was in lieu of DBry or not was just icing on the cake that made it so many fans needed rehab on him.
No he was still pretty well over before his injury, but he pretty much returned at the wrong time as I believe Daniel Bryan also recovered from his injury.
And the fact that smarks STILL bitching about this farm animal not being pushed pretty much shows that HE'S the root cause.
This is correct. People were equally as high on Ambrose or even Ziggler back then. It was a reaction to the obviousness and shitness of Roman's push, and was nothing to do with Bryan, unlike the year before which was all about Bryan.
What does it mean guys?
That's not how odds work.
It works out as winnings/stake, if you win, you get both.
So for HHH, if you were to make a stake of £11, you'd get winnings of £10, but the payout/return would be these two things added together, so you'd get £21.
Another example: If you put £10 on CM Punk, you'd get 33 x £10 + the original £10 stake, so £340
>/asp/ie trips are doing a faggoty rumble gamethread
When are they going to get off our board?
No it wasn't. That was acceptable Ambrose booking.
Around that time period he was being genuinely unpredictable and lunatic, tinging it with comedic stuff is fine.
His character began to deteriorate in early-mid 2015.
>Based Charlie with better odds than Slater
he just posts all this weird shit like the AJ styles pic and stuff
>These images will be posted without explanation, for your interpretation. Enjoy.
>There were some people within WWE down on Tyler Breeze after he asked for permission to leave a recent WWE TV taping early. Once word got out that Breeze did leave early, other people started talking and this led to some members of WWE management, who did not know about the request, getting angry with Breeze.
>There was a feeling that Breeze just came from NXT and was already disrespecting the business and the company, so they would just "squash him out" because of the heat. No word yet on how long the "de-push" will last but hopefully not much longer.
cena's instagram has always been bizarre
I like to think of it as the trapped psyche of the man cena was before the Champ took over his body. Like the swan song of the little wrestling-loving weirdo he was before he started to lift.
>WWE has announced The Dudley Boyz vs. The Ascension vs. Jack Swagger and Mark Henry vs. Darren Young and Damien Sandow for Sunday's WWE Royal Rumble Kickoff pre-show.
Who ready for /hallofpain2k16/
>SCSA talking about Making a Murderer on his podcast
and I thought he couldn't get any more GOAT
Is this on the way of becoming the greatest gimmick of all time?
>tfw RR comes down to Brock vs Reigns with only one entrant left
>Bork and and Roman eliminate each other
>The COO comes out at number 30, walks into the empty ring and wins
How hard would you mark?
HHH is the patricians greatest wrestler of all time.
Only casuals would say guys like austin, hogan and the rock.
Hardcore fans know that Triple H is the ring general and had way more 5 star matches than them, and he's had better lasting appeal, like the undertaker, his character has changed with the times and always stayed fresh, actually I'd say he's better than taker because everyone agrees that taker should just retire and he's stale already.
We all want to see Haitch wrestle more matches and he can actually still go for at least another decade, a decade from now, all the remnants of the attitude era will have fallen except one man, the cerebral assassin, the king of kings, the game, Triple H.
I want to get HHH's nipples off his chest or make him wear a shirt forever. They freak me out man, they're like warts except the root is on the outside
>McMahon was seen to have little interest in light heavyweight wrestling, considering it to be something of a farcical league. When asked how he would improve the division in an August 1998 WWF internet chat, he scoffed: "Perhaps an influx of Ethiopian talent would be appropriate.
Flippy shit cucks btfo
>punishing a guy for doing the right thing
>punishing a guy because you're too lazy to find out why he left early
>the state of this company
Shit tier genetics
Awful wrestler, literally cannot even punch or do a spear
Top 2 worst actor on the roster along with Asuka
Worst mannerisms on the roster
Has shit on her chin
Is as wooden as pinocchio's dick
Is a flair
Reminder JTG stuck around bereft of television appearances for like a year
Reminder Sandow is employed
The company doesn't give two shits about whether people fuck around in catering to pick up a paycheck and they fire people very scarcely.
based sizzle has a preshow match coming up and does the house shows circuit.
Yea they rarely fire people unless they have just cause like maddox, breeze at the very least can be a jobber and hang out in catering or house show filler, at best he can go back to NXT to help train people.
You see Roman, the thing is, go back all the way to Survivor Series Roman... you didn't spear the Game, you didn't spear the King of Kings Roman.
You speared a man, a man doing his job - you speared a man whose wife and kids were watching him Roman.
Before... it was just business Roman.
You made it personal by spearing me in front of my family - I wanted to keep it business Roman, and you made it personal.
You see Roman, the thing is, you shouldn't have done it. That man isn't the man standing in front of you Roman.
Standing in front of you is a man who you disgraced! You scared my family, you beat the hell out of my father-in-law and you're gonna get what's coming to you Roman.
You aren't facing the COO, you aren't facing the guy in the suit. YOU'RE FACING THE GAME, ROMAN, THE CEREBRAL ASSASSIN, THE KING OF KINGS - THAT'S WHO YOU'RE FACING ROMAN.
And Roman... I respect you, you know it - you weren't Seth but you're great. You have it all Roman. It could have been different Roman but you had to push it. You see, Roman, this is your fault.
I see you smiling Roman but you need to get it through your head... this ain't a game anymore Roman. At Wrestlemania, this ends. At Wrestlemania I end everything.
insert this somewhere
>You see Roman, the man you're facing - he's kicked ass all around the world Roman - he's stood on stage with the biggest ass kicker of all time - god bless you Lemmy. That's the man you have to deal with at Wrestlemania.
