Comfy new general for post rumble corbin discussion.
They showed a replay later of Jericho eliminating him. They missed it by focusing on the Reigns beatdown for so long.
Some shitty camerawork tonight. They took too long to put the camera on AJ Styles and Sasha Banks, kinda ruined things.
TONIGHT WE'LL BOOK THE RUMBLE LIKE IT'S 1999.
It doesn't matter who won the royal rumble because brock's going home to fuck sable
>implying I watched WCW
Stay mad you zit covered female repellent
oh boy i sure love 40 minute long HHH promos where he says nothing of interest
I don't know if HHH thinks he's Vince or something but he's not. Vince is a great character, HHH is an OK wrestler who ruined his image by his constant politicing.
He's more like Hogan minus actually being super over at one point.
The beginning was pretty good, the 5 minutes after Zayn and then Brock entered too. The rest fell pretty flat.
Really surprised they didn't use more of the NXT roster or even tease anything between NRA Club and the Wyatts.
>Everyone else is down in a corner
>AJ's in the middle of the ring
You had one job, WWE. Why the fuck would you not put these guys in there at the same time
The audience didn't like anyone in the finals except Ambrose, and maybe a little bit Jericho. Isn't HHH supposed to be a fucking heel? WWE has no fucking idea what the audience likes. Nobody wants HHH champion for the millionth time.
I was thinking that Ramen would stick around to help out Dean by pulling HHH out of the ring or something.
Then I realized that Dean never EVER fucking EVER shows up to help out Reigns.
>Nobody wants HHH champion for the millionth time.
Pretty sure he got cheered when he eliminated Roman mark.
I didn't hear boos like when Batista and Reigns won either.
>they can't make a worse royal rumble guys
How naive we were
>Nobody wants Triple H Champion for the millionth time
>Implying Based Shovelman dumping out Faggot Reigns wasn't one of the biggest pops since Austin helped Mankind
>Pretty sure he got cheered when he eliminated Roman mark.
Literally anyone would have gotten cheered if they eliminated Roman tonight.
If Big Show did it there would have been thank you big show chants

That was just because Reigns was hated. Anyone could have gotten the same pop, had nothing to do with HHH. It would have been way more interesting if someone else did.
Instead more dinosaur shit. This is WCW tier garbage.

It would have been perfect if anyone but HHH or Roman won and they didn't have a Bella tier Divas match
>hurr lets have the heel win by cheating 6 times in a row and not get DQd because we're fucking retards then book a heel vs heel match because we're fucking retards
I'd say this RR was worse than last year's because it should have been so much better but they fucked it up because HHH is a cunt.
Why are you still watching if you don't like it then cuck?
You know you tune in to see stars like the game and you love it.

That is some grade A shit right there.
As bad as HHH as champ in 2016 sounds it sets up:
Reigns vs HHH
Bryan vs HHH
Rollins vs HHH
At least they've got places to go with it instead of two years ago where they backed themselves into a corner
Stone Cold is going to review this as the best rumble of the 2010s, you smarks don't know shit.
How would you book AJ /wwe/. I say
>IC 4 way at WM. (doesn't win but looks strong)
>Fued with someone like K.O.
>Win MitB heel cash in on Reigns
>Fued with Reigns for title, retain
>Face Seth returns.
>AJ vs Seth headlines Summerslam, Brooklyn smarks will love it
>Drops title to Seth and then upper midcard for the rest of his WWE run as he's too old
>Smarks hating HHH more than Roman
I love it when smarks burn everything to the ground because they won't book AJ like NJPW did and give him the title in the debut.
AJ has a long future ahead of him lads, just enjoy the ride and don't be such faggots.
>Samoa Joe, Kevin Owens, AJ Styles, Neville and Sami Zayn standing in the ring
>suddenly Joe and Owens destroys the shit out of the other guys
>Bray Wyatt comes out
>Joe, Owens and Bray form the Burger Club - Fat Pride World Wide
If Reigns won the Rumble they would have likely lost Reigns for good, and there weren't a lot of other good options for champ at the moment. Cena is out, Bryan is out, Rollins is out, Orton is out, Cesaro is out, Sting is out, and Batista and Rock aren't coming back anytime soon so that left your options as Brock, another Sheamus run, either Owens or Ambrose, or you give the title to Styles on night 1. Now I do like the idea of Brock or a Ambrose/Owens run but HHH was the safest and has the most directions they can build from. Can't blame them for playing it safe with all their injuries and declining ratings

>Dean is last
What the fuck is this
He just did a Last Man Standing match of all matches and then proceeds to stay in the rumble last second
Why are they booking the IC Champion and literally borderline immortal?
And worst of all, it won't do anything, Owens and Dean will just carry on into FastLane, what the hell was the point of Dean even staying to lose to Trips? Why not Roman be the last one which should have been the point? I am genuinely baffled lads
WWE is so lacking in talent, or so shit at developing and selling talent, that they have to have some fag who's been in the company for thirty years win. That is all there is to it. If they could sell someone new they wouldn't do this, period.
The ride fucking sucks because now it's going to HHH vs Roman at WM. This set up nothing, this changed nothing, it's the same old shit.
Charlotte is garbage, I'll be glad when he dad dies, HHH being champ means nothing because of the booking and he'll almost certainly just go even stevens with Reigns at WM.
Why not do the 40 man rumble from here on out? I feel like it makes the thing a lot less predictable and gives you a few more slots for guys to return or debut. I mean what's really the negative?
Holy fuck, you are literally braindead.
Did you not hear the crowd at the end? They were on fire. Ambrose is probably still the most over face on the main roster, by teasing him as the last man, they gave the RR an ending that was interesting and wouldn't have a chorus of boos to it like the last two years.
I didn't say have roman win the damn thing, I just said haitch vs reigns could've happened without haitch stroking his paper thin ego with another title. Neither of them had to win the damn thing, neither of them should have, Dean, Wyatt, Owens, Lesnar, hell, even one of the new day would have been a more interesting conclusion.
Trips is there to transfer the belt back and put over, Dean is ok I'd still prefer fat ass, Kalisto is ok, the US Championship lost its prestige when Cena lost it.
Sasha NEEEEEEEEEDS that belt and the New Day can be immortal champions for all I care
You guys do realize what's happening here right?
>Reigns loses the title at the Rumble
>wins it back at WrestleMania
>Reigns will be a 3 times WWE World Heavyweight Champion by the end of WrestleMania
>in one year's time Roman Reigns went from the future top prospect of the company to a 3 time WWE World Heavyweight Champion
Wrap your heads around that. Cena isn't even out the door and Reigns is already on pace to break his record.
Fuck off man, Ric Flair is shit. He hasn't been good in 20 years and he's done nothing with Charlotte except give her an excuse to have a terrible gimmick. He's less than worthless, he's actively hurting the product.
That's making the assumption that backstage politics don't come into it and Vince always makes the right business decision 100% of the time.
So basically this is the first WWE show you have ever seen in your life.
>Subconscious did not play throughout the arena tonight
Little sad 2bh lads
The amazing thing is he STILL isn't over and STILL gets mild pops and fairly loud boos and the WWE are STILL in complete denial thinking that if they keep trying the same thing over and over it'll eventually have the opposite result.
The moment they turn Reigns heel and book him like Corbin has been in NXT, the product can finally leave the shitter.
If Triple H won in 98 people wouldn't be complaining because he wouldn't have had an established career by then
This was a great Rumble because that faggot Samoan in a vest lost, get your head out of your ass
>Triple h is the only main event talent they have.
He was never main event talent. In the past he was there as an obstacle for the "other guy" to fight. No one in the history of Earth has ever said, "I can't wait to watch the HHH match."
No shit, that's exactly why people are mad that HHH won. It's just as bad as Reigns retaining except it also strokes HHH's microdick ego.
The authority has overstayed it's welcome by about 4 years now. HHH should be happy he's taking credit for the work Regal, Boom, Brookside, Smiley, etc do and fuck off already.
Sorry, but if you have crowds today chanting for some NO NAME jobber like AJ Styles, it doesn't matter if you turn Reigns heel or not he ain't ever getting over.
And it's not just him, it's ANY big guy. Notice how the ONLY member of the Wyatt family that got any reaction was Bray Wyatt himself.
I like Trips, not even a mark or a smark (fuck your categories you cunts you can just be a fan of wrestling).
Sure this is just WM build up but this Rumble was very enjoyable from a neutral stand point. If you're an indy fan then this rumble surely must have you thinking its worse than last years.
Here's the thing though, Reigns can be and has been legitimately over multiple times. It's that they constantly book him in the worst possible way imaginable. NOBODY likes it when they just make him ODDS MAN
WWE needs to fire everyone on creative, get rid of Stephanie and bring some people up from NXT like Regal who actually know what they're doing.
What was the point of roman losing the title? He's winning it back in less than 3 months. Why have him defend it in the rumble? Why not have him face another young star at WM? What the hell is the thought process here
You are fucking retarded.
Reigns is shat on by half the fans, they don't buy him as a face at all. So book him as a fucking heel then. The exact same thing happened in NXT with Corbin, they tried to book him as a cool badass face, he was shit so the fans booed him, then they turned him heel and now his character actually works. Not only does the booking work properly now with the fans all united in one direction, but he's actually WAY BETTER at being a smug cunt, because thats kinda what he's like.
The same deal with Reigns. Playing a heel is so much easier than a face, particularly when you have rocketbooster booking like Reigns has.
The only times he's been over have been as Ambrose's Samoan Friend.
A portion of the audience are not going to cheer this guy at all for the foreseeable. With any other wrestler (save Cena, who is their biggest draw so fair enough), WWE would have turned him heel by now.
The only thing stopping them is Vince's stubbornness.
>What the hell is the thought process here
"Now how am I ever gonna tie Hulk Hogan for Wrestlemania main events..?"
>best face of all time being beaten by the best heel of all time
The best thing is, they genuinely thought the crowd would react as if they'd recreated both of those guys with this storyline
>Ambrose could have won and been the new face
>Which could turn Roman heel
>Roman could get over as a power heel
>WWE proceeds to give Haitch more stat padding
Why lads? Why?
>The only times he's been over have been as Ambrose's Samoan Friend.
I guess you weren't watching RAW at all the past 2 months. He was getting cheered in Philly even.
Nobody is impressed by your "i just started watching wrestling but reddit and /woo/ told me roman sucks )))):<" opinion
I never liked Flair either, especially in his waning days as he managed to hang around by choking on haitch's cock and carrying his fucking bags like a bitch, and now he's basically a cartoon caricature of himself, but come on guy.
Imagine if Bray vs HHH actually ended up with Bray tossing out HHH (which he should have been doing since his debut, him being allied with the authority just because they're heels is possibly the dumbest thing in years) then literally anyone but Roman winning
Then you have a Wyatt vs Authority feud, a heel vs heel match that actually makes sense and you make the WWEWHC actually mean something other than HHH's favorite object to hotglue.
I find that hard to believe, but I'll take your word for it I guess. I haven't watched RAW in about 6 months, I just gave up on the show it became so bad.
Never browsed leddit or /wooo/ in my life.
>under 3 mins from breaking Rey's record
Dream Summerslam card (the major injuries should be clear by then so the roster will be quite stacked):
>AJ vs Seth WHC
>Roman vs Dean
>KO vs Zayn IC
>DBry vs Nakamura
>Brock vs Orton
>Sasha vs Bayley Divas title
>Cena vs Cesaro US title
>New Day vs someone (maybe enzo and cass hometown pop) Tag titles
>Wyatts vs Balor club
>some throwaway divas tag match
Do you guys think there's any chance of Cesaro coming back and getting into a feud with Owens again? adding to the six man ladder match that's inevitably gonna happen at WM between Ambrose/Owens/AJ/Zayn/???/???
>Could Trips actually lose the belt prior to WM or is he honestly guaranteed the Main Event?
Didn't you hear Cole say that he's going to main event wrestlemania? They'll probably have some type of tournament/ battle royale to determine the no.1 contender which Roman will win.
Actually that is a lie I watched the last one to get hype for this PPV, the first I've watched in about 6 months, and Roman got the same mild cheers and slightly louder boos as the last time I watched, I figured nothing had changed. but inbetween that time he was getting large pops apparently?
>People still think the company was "gonna take a chance" on Ambrose winning
Top kek, even to the dumbest guys it was pretty obvious they didn't want the main event to end with Triple H being cheered over Roman.
Yeah, exactly. This is just bullshit to make him look strong. They padded his stats harder than Jonathan Quick's. He only fought for 15 minutes tops because he would've been too gassed to do rope grabbing spots.
Don't be a punkass man. Sell the tickets, overpriced of course, to a couple of marks and endlessly shit on them for being excited about it. Bonus points if you get a father and young son combo.
