All of the Social Outcasts are well-liked and respected guys behind the scenes, with even a youngster like Bo having nearly a decade of experience.
Tough Enough Youngboy is literally fucking nobody, who got a free pass to a cushy gig because he's the whiter, biggerer version of Roman Reigns and that gives Vince all of the boners.
also just a respect thing, theyve worked to get there and he won a reality show. apparently he had heat already to this was more a tipping point
I don't think that means what you think that means.
Name one other guy in the company who is gonna shift as much merchandise as Roman outside of Cena, who is injured and also played out like fucking mad as the world heavyweight champ.
No guys forreal, JeriDad is fat as fuck
>they want to save their ratings
>Sheamus isn't helping
>Sheamus drops the title
>Roman marginally rebounds the ratings, gets a good pop as well
>this is not planned since ideally Roman should get the belt at Wrestlemania
>there are no credible heels to go against him other than HHH since Seth is injured and he already feuded for months with Bray and was going nowhere
>instead of pushing him to the top in a blitz they bring him down a notch by letting a veteran like HHH carry the belt
Probably. But even if he's passing the torch (and he's certainly willing to put the younger guys over), he can do it with a decent gimmick.
Not really. Jericho can play the character without admitting he's not personally cool any more. In fact, it'd probably work better if the guy is that delusional.
I thought the Wrestlemania match was decent.
The reason Fandango never really took off was because of his suspension right before Payback.
If that never happened, he would have won the IC title.
Let's not shit ourselves. We all know there's only one man who can save WrestleMania.
>got her tryout from Enzo's recommendation, also they were dating last I heard
Daddio is fine as fuck and I ain't even mad. Go Zo.
Lads, ive been out of the loop for a few weeks.
Can someone tell my whey the fuck the WWE CHAMPION is in the Royal Rumble ?
When the fuck has this ever happened.
Is this now actually Roman Reigns vs 29 other people ?
TIL every member of the social outcast have won the FCW Heavyweight Championship. HEALTH SLATER WON IT HAS Heath Miller Bo dallas won it as Bo Rotundo Adam Rose won it as Leo kruger Curtis Axel won it as Joe henning other fact both Slater and Axel won the fcw tag titles twice has a tag team
I hope the Social Outcasts get their revenge and eliminate the Big Show in the Royal Rumble. That would be a nice way to put them over without them losing their jobber souls. I guess putting the Big Show over the top rope should be harder than putting them over in social media, right?
I haven't been this hyped for a PPV in a long time.
I mean.. We've got Becky v. Charlotte first of all, I do not need to say anything about the build up to this.
What will the undertaker do with wrestlemania so close? Will he show up?
What about AJ? Bullet Club??!
Is Daniel Bryan going to make a surprise appearance? He was cleared by an outside doc, but no word yet if the WWE doc has said anything on twitter or the like for over 2 days now.
This is the most hyped I have been in the last 3 years...
EDIT: I totally forgot to add all the faction we have now.. New Day, Wyatts, TSO, LoN... Should make for interesting stories in the rumble.
The Royal Rumble match is only Bray Wyatt's 2nd televised championship match of any kind in WWE. Bray Wyatt made his main roster debut on July 8, 2013. Since that time he's been the leader of a top stable in WWE, main evented TLC 2014 and has had a semi-main event Wrestlemania match with the Undertaker. This weekend's Royal Rumble match is only Bray Wyatt's 2nd match in WWE for a championship belt of any kind. The only other title match he's participated in was the vacant WWE WHC ladder match at MITB 2014. Husky Harris actually had a tag team title match on Raw in 2011, but that was before he saw the light. I think it's pretty impressive that he's managed to stay relevant for over 2.5 years and never even challenge for a championship. I hope 2016 is a renewed focus on Bray Wyatt looking to make an impact in WWE with something other than his words.
Finn Balor and Cesaro are the most overrated wrestlers by the IWC.
This is just to start a discussion.
Let's start with Finn Balor first.
His ring work is good. Not great. Lags far behind people like Seth Rollins. He is like Dean Ambrose in the ring (when Dean is at his best).
He sucks on the mic. He is bland.
He has no personality, no charisma.
His current gimmick sucks. I am not even sure what his gimmick is. If his gimmick is that he turns into a demon in big matches, then it sucks. Because the demon is just facepaint, nothing different in the ring, nor on the mic.
I have seen people say that he will get quickly over due to his facepaint. REALLY? First of all, facepaint alone doesn't get anyone over. Second of all, if someone needs facepaint to get over, then well...
His size is pretty small. He looks crazy small next to Cena. Even Neville looks bigger than him. Not that I have a problem with size, but he looks like Cena can break his spine with his hands.
Now, lets come to Cesaro:
He is charismaless.
He can't work the mic. I'd rather listen to tater tots than him.
I just cannot see him as a WWE champion, the face of the company. He could've been a good World Heavyweight Champion on smackdown, but he certainly doesn't look like a main event talent.
People say that he "got over with the Cesaro section" and stuff. No he didn't. The Cesaro Section dissapeared as he was stopped being pushed. He actually got over when he won the ARMBAR. But that was midcard over. And it was due to his unbelievable strength and the swing.
Take a look at all of the loints and think about it and then start commenting.
Don't talk straight outta your asses.
So JR had some words for people who think D-BRY being held back is a conspiracy, or even worst the people who want him to sign a waiver.
Basically in today's Observer they talked to Jim Ross (Highly recommend listening to this episode.) About the NJPW deal and such, it then got to the topic of Daniel Bryan and JR defended WWE in that they can't take any chances when it comes to D-bry, that if worst comes to worst at least he can still have his health be a trainer, maybe a commentator, but the choices will be open to him. He had some scathing words to say to the people who said he should just sign a waiver so he or his family can't sue if he's injured (Something i've heard spouted on this sub before.) Basically he told anyone who said that to get out of their parent's basement and it was stupid, nay morally irresponsible to just have someone sign a waiver when their was even a chance of them getting permanent brain damage or death, something which can be avoided.
> Earlier this week, Sytch appeared on TMZ Sports and said she was offered $100,000 (and a contract for a 90 minute video) by Vivid’s Steve Hirsch, but she turned it down because it wasn’t a good enough offer. Now, she has reportedly agreed to a deal that was a “much, much higher offer”
Wow, good for her for haggling more money out of the deal. Seriously impressive.
Post yfw Roman Royal Rumble Reigns wins it 2yrs in a row and ends this year having eliminted more than 15 people
Can Kane be rebooted? I dont mean the wrestler himself but the Character.
Just find some 7 foot giant put him a mask and dont let him near a microphone then make him wreck shit.
WWE really lacks a monster and i like the character so it would be nice to still have Kane for the foreseeable future.
What do you think?
>The crowd will be chill!
>No one is going to shit on the Rumble this year!
>This Rumble will be no where near as bad as 2014 and 2015!
If Reigns or Triple H wins over Lesnar or Styles, or if Styles doesn't even show up, the crowd are going to be fucking nuclear. Reigns got booed loudly just for spearing Lesnar, so what's going to happen when Reigns and Lesnar are going at it in the ring this Sunday? And what's going to happen when either Reigns or Haitch eliminates Brock?
Strap in guys, I expect a disaster for three years in a row. Also, Rumble always draws the most smarkiest of crowds from all over the world, so Reigns could get nuclear shit by default, no matter what happens.
BASED JOSH IN THE RUMBLE?
>mfw he singlehandedly eliminates the social jobbers and Kevin James
>Name one other guy in the company who is gonna shift as much merchandise as Roman outside of Cena,
Literally anyone given his push and focus.
He sells the merch he does because he was forced upon people so hard over a course of time that people essentially relented.

Enzo isn't Jersey, you putz. He's New York.
It's like the difference the between bicep curls and squats. Both are barbell lifts, but one is a running joke while the other is royalty.
I remember being in the RAW game thread when he used the word "trolled" to describe how he'd play to the fans and then just leave. Stone Cold has never gotten such a pop.
It was pretty good on it's own merits. In a Bigger Picture way, it was pretty stupid. Jericho, still pretty over, jobs to a guy with possibly the worst gimmick in the WWE since that vampire pirate, in the latter fag's debut at Wrestlemania.
Has anyone ever been King of the Ring and held a major WWE title at the same time ?
After undertaker Retires for good he'll just randomly show up in promos backstage having beers and playing cards with whatever old fuckin wrestling legend lives where RAW is being taped
Edge and he doesnt need any title beacause he is GOAT
Lol wait so Josh has a wife and kid who he used to facetime with on TE, and he just ups and dumps them for 23 year old Paige in a matter of months? Oh wow that's one of the sleeziest thing I've ever read in regards to wrestling backstage relations.
Sure, hindsight is 20/20, but not only was Brock ending the streak fucking stupid, the way they've booked Taker since was also a missed opportunity. He should have immediately dropped the Undead Wizard 2spoopy gimmick and reverted to Biker Taker, possibly even going by Mark (Callous for kayfabe's sake). Then his feud with Bray could have been about whatever Evil that had possessed Mark Callous finding a younger host in Husky Harris and shit. Then after Bray beats "Taker" like he goddamn should have anyway, "Taker" feuds with Demon Kane in the wake of the Seth Rollins feud and Kane going all Evil again. Mark Callous apologizes for all the shit that happened in the past when he was "possessed" or however you choose to spin it. Stuff like killing Kane's adoptive parents in that fire, beating up Kane's biological dad (Paul Bearer in kayfabe) several times, and so on. Callous tries to get his half-brother (or whatever the story on their relationship ended up being) to come to his senses and leave the past behind him. This leads to Callous beating Kane at WM in Dallas, exorcising Kane's demons (because in wrestling nothing can't be solved by a match of some sort), allowing Issac Yankem and Mark Callous to retire in peace and happiness.
But no. Instead what we got were two inexplicably badly written feuds with the Wyatts, and we're going to get TakerWinsLOL against God only knows who at this coming Mania, because everyone of consequence is injured, because WWE hasn't built a new star that isn't Roman Reigns since goddamn 2005.
>his fantasy booking literally ends with "Mark Callous" and "Isaac Yankem" retiring at Wrestlemania 32 followed a match with a combined age of what would be 99
Where did you find this post?
Was it reddit?
What evidence do you have that they're dating? There's a possibility they're banging but I don't believe there's a man sleezy enough to actually date Paige unless they were in an emo band or something.
My tribute to The People's Champ, The Great One and The Most Electrifying Man in Sports Entertainment.
Also he's still the GOAT fuck smarks
I guess a more punky version of his old theme, I dunno whatever/
They would. It's still very disrespectful whoever it's coming from.
They just wouldn't speak out against Cena because they value their careers. Whereas with Josh they can say that without fear of backlash.
Part of me things the business is too round-edges and bubble-wrap to do anything like that anymore, but another part knows it's still some carny bullshit and there's a real chance they'll get Swagger to shoot on him for a bit.
He's a good enough character and definitely talented enough in himself to stay completely relevant without one, though, they're just making use of that to assure they always have one sure-fire segment outside of the titles so they can go to more fitting people.
It's actually pretty smart.
who does /wwe/ see winning the royal rumble out of roman reigns and triple h?
>tfw reigns wins and loses the belt at fastlane to lesnar, leading to a triple threat match with triple h at wrestlemania
>that one rumble where Benoit, Eddie and Holly just chopped the shit out of Puder for like 3 straight minutes
Haitch or Lesnar are the only two reasonable possibilities and Lesnar's chances dwindled when Bray attacked him due to the teased set up of a family vs Lesnar feud for Mania.
It's Haitch, basically. Just Haitch.
>based Josh in the rumble
Holy shit, WWE have shot themselves in the foot.
Big Josh is over as fuck and when he gets eliminated the crowd are going to shit over everything like the last few years.
I wonder if he'll have to get inserted into the main event like Bryan did?
>mfw Josh goes into business for himself and wins the title
You see Roman, the thing is, you made a mistake.
This is your fault Roman.
Before, it was business. It was all business Roman. I made business decisions and offers that I thought would benefit the company - some of which were to do with you Roman.
It was Business... and you made it personal.
You see Roman, I came out to do my job and you attacked me with absolutely no remorse. How do you think my kids felt watching their father be destroyed for nothing? My wife was screaming at you to stop and you kept going. The next night you beat the hell out of my father-in-law as well.
And for what, Roman? This belt? This belt that I'm holding? You must be really proud of yourself.
You see Roman, that guy you attacked? The guy in the suit? The business man? That guy isn't standing across from you right now Roman.
The guy you're facing at Wrestlemania is a 14 time world champion.
Roman, you did this and at Wrestlemania you don't get THE COO! YOU DON'T GET THE BUSINESS MAN! YOU GET THE GAME, THE KING OF KINGS, THE CEREBRAL ASSASSIN ROMAN. YOU GET A GUY WHO HAS DONE IT ALL IN THIS INDUSTRY - FROM WINNING MAIN EVENTS TO STANDING ALONGSIDE LEGENDS LIKE LEMMY. THAT'S WHO YOU GET ROMAN.
You see Roman... you just don't get the game... you get a man, a man you insulted and a man who wants to defend and protect his family. That man is waiting at Wrestlemania Roman. I've got this belt, you want it.
And Roman... at Wrestlemania it ends. All of it. I finish it on my terms. Don't smile, don't make a stupid remark - the only thing you listen to is catchphrases right Roman? Be it your cousin the Rock or your idiot lunatic friends.
Well Roman, I'll keep it simple for you...
At Wrestlemania I'm going to kick your ass... and you can BELIEVE *smirks* THAT.
Looking at this picture just confirms that the Pedigree is the most sexually humiliating finisher that a wrestler can receive.
You are being forced below Triple H's crotch. His sweaty and rotting ballsack lies above your head as you stare at the floor. He doesn't even grant you the honour of looking you in the eyes before he finishes you, as Stone Cold or Kane might. He just shoves you beneath his sack, dangling his balls on your neck, and arrogantly slams you to the ground before pinning you. It is the finisher of a king. a KING of KINGS.
Imagine the smell. Being shoved between his thighs and under his balls. You could probably still smell the cum from his morning pegging session with Stephanie from beneath his trunks. Trying not to focus on the smell of the sweat that has spent so much time being dripped onto Stephanie's tits and ass but not being able to focus on not focussing because his muscular, mens fitness cover quality thighs are rubbing ferociously against your neck, gripping your throat like the King of Kings grips the Raw audience with every 20 minute promo, and leaving you just as breathless as those promos. HHH would do it on purpose. Choke you with his thighs so you are forced to breath through your nose and get a whiff of those balls. He wants you to smell them. He wants you to know how Booker T felt before he realised he would never be a 'one time' WWF Champion. He wants you to know how Kane felt when he realised that a one day reign ended by Stone Cold is the best it could ever get. He wants you to know how Sting felt when he realised coming to the WWE was a mistake. You try to grab your chest and pull apart your nipples. If they are as far away as humanly possible you will feel like Stephanie and might learn to enjoy the smell. But he holds your arms over your head and he drops you onto the mat like the piece of human shit you are. He is the King of King's and the pedigree turns you into his personal jester.
>If they are as far away as humanly possible you will feel like Stephanie
>thump my father in law
YOU SIT THERE AND YOU THUMP YOUR COCONUTS AND SAY YOUR HAKKA AND IT DIDNT GET YOU ANYWHERE
TALK ABOUT YOUR SIKAS, TALK ABOUT YOUR DWAYNE 3:16
HUNTER 3:16 SAYS I JUST INVENTED THE ATTITUDE ERA
At this point Haitch hadn't done any of that.
By this time literally all Haitch had done was offer Roman a shortcut to the finals and come out attempting to shake his hand following his victory.
Do you have selective memory or is this willful stupidity? They were constantly clashing, especially during the time when Dean had stolen the title and Roman was being given tough matches against Beeg and the Wyatts. Then right after he declined, Haitch went around telling wrestlers to be extra tough on him, and comes out to offer his fake congratulations after he'd put him through hell. Sometimes the criticisms you people have for the booking is ridiculously jaded.
>attacks Vince despite Vinny being an old man
Vince was blatantly interfering with the match dumbass.
An anon yesterday pointed out that Roman might have been suspicious because of what happened SS 2013, with Haitch leaving the champ vulnerable to Mr MITB.
I highly doubt the creative team were thinking of that when they wrote the attack, though it would actually be pretty neat if it that was what they were going for. A rare bit of continuity.
>They didn't clash in the span of the WWEWHC tournament
But they did, HHH was going around telling guys like Del Rio to hurt him. Then after Reigns beats Dean, he shows up to fake congratulate him.
>HHH was going around telling guys like Del Rio to hurt him.
They didn't directly clash and those backstage segments are kayfabed as fuck, as in other wrestlers don't acknowledge them and they're supposed to be windows for the fans. Roman wouldn't know.
Conjecture tbqh. He was still trying to corral Roman over to the Authority, it wasn't fake, just duplicitous.
Roman still responded in an exaggerated fashion.
