Friendly reminder that, at Wrestlemania, Triple H will be about the same age Hulk Hogan was in the Spring of 2000.
>crowd boos Roman
>He tells them to "cut that shit out"
Reminder that Roman is still salty that he isn't over
This. He was booked as the most unlikable coward heel ever in the rumble. Owens was a bigger face, limping his way to the ring and still giving a 100%
I seriously hope he knows this but he comes off as pretty ignorant about everything.
I don't understand how Owens is meant to be a heel considering in promos he says "hes doing this to feed his family" why would we boo somebody who is putting his body on the line to feed his family?
It would have been more efficient to let Roman come back without his vest all bandaged up hobbling to the ring to get sympy. But no, let's just let this nigger run full speed back to the ring like nothing ever happened.
This, It made him look like he was just chilling in the back
Of course not, but if he wants to be cheered he probably needs to start standing up to Vince and Haitch and tell them to stop this stupid booking. But that'll never happen. Part of why Roman is the guy is because he's a yes man and a good soldier that does whatever they want, unfortunately.
>You should probably have sex.
>He does heelish things all the time.
and in storyline he's doing it for his family
The WWE sucks at making Heels now a days barely any heels got cheered a while back and now most of them are more over than the faces.
Why did the league of nations and vince fuck off after beating up Roman?
Why did they not throw him into the ring and eliminate him?
Why did they let him take a nap backstage?
Why doesn't Roman use his rematch clause?
Why is vince so retarded?
In storyline we're meant to believe all the people but the McMahons are basically living in poverty and owe everything to WWE; they have no other skills, there are no other promotions, and there are no other jobs they can do.
So if someone does something bad "for their family" it means it isnt bad?
The reason why they are more over than faces is completely different. It is because the WWE hasnt yet adapted to booking faces how the modern crowd wants to see them.
This would've been a GOAT rumblr if it wasn't focused on Roman so damn much.
All thise feud setups.
That debut to a huge pop.
That barely any Show and Kane.
That Rusev hugging Vince and taking a monitor with him "C'mere, boss!"
>no Roman's sleepy chant
The only meem you couldn't spout, eh Full Sail fags?
Allowing people to get out of the ring and stay out is fucking retarded anyway. Why don't they all just do it? Or when Reigns came back, why didn't he just wait until there was only one person left.
The goal was to beat him down so bad he would be sent to the hospital and forfeit the match. But Reigns is just so strong willed he walked to the back of his own accord, took a breather, and came back and lost exactly like stone cold did in 99
It's just one of those many questions you are not supposed to ask.
They should have a count out rule also for like 20 seconds if you are out of the ring you are officially eliminated but WWE wants the rules to be simple I guess.
That's retarded, especially when they sent Triple H in to take him out.
The rules aren't even simple now with how often the commentary needs to clarify whether or not someone was eliminated.
But it doesn't matter even if they are because they can hang around the ring and eliminate anyone!
>So if someone does something bad "for their family" it means it isnt bad?
your acting like Owens killed someone, he cheats in matches and attacks people, doesn't take away from him being really likable
Because you want to eliminate other people and to do si you need to be inside? Even if you're chickenshit you have to get in eventually. If someone tries to run away people can always step out and toss them back in.
Retarded interferences like what we saw on Sunday opens up a whole can of worms when it comes to questioning WWE's logic. They really shouldn't have interferences during the Rumble because 100% of the time things will seem illogical
The wyatts and league of nations should have thrown everyone out of the match
the indy scene will never be destroyed
plus WWE dont want to do this, they want the indies to still produce talent because it creates a different type of wrestler to what will come out of the NXT PC
>Rocky burying Rusev
>plus WWE dont want to do this, they want the indies to still produce talent
No. They don't. They want people who have never wrestled before that are big and athletic to come into NXT so they can mold them in the exact way they want.
NXT is literally cancer.
>Rewatching AJ styles match
>Michael Cole of all people calling spots like a northern lights suplex and AJ's pele kick
Who poisoned Cole's coffee?
My comment was merely about the fatigue that most people in the know seem to have due to them having been around forever and werstle so often.
I didn't get to see much Cena before his recent injury, though..
>plus WWE dont want to do this
They tried to do it before, and they're trying to now. Do you think there's a spot for Gallows and Karl Anderson on Raw? Or how about the entire Lucha Underground roster because WWE tried to sign all of them? And Triple H is STILL going for Ricochet/Prince Puma. Is there a spot for Austin Aries, who debuts as a geek jobber?
WWE is trying to stomp out the indy groups, and they're being super aggressive with it.
Cena was kinda boring from 05-10 but I also put this down to his shitty opponents often (Big Show, Lashley, Great Khali, Umaga etc.) there were still good matched with Edge, Michaels, Triple H etc. since WWE started brining in more competent wrestlers he has been in so many good matches.
I don't think you understood what I said. This kind of material has been done so many times before that it's not even remotely funny anymore.
It's like someone saying, "Hey have you guys seen Gangnam Style?" in 2016.
Because they're too scared to build other people as viable Top Heels.
Rollins could've filled the void even though he's not really that good of a Heel and played out as fuck because they established him over 2015 but other than that they're too afraid to pull the trigger on Bray.
>How is this allowed
he's married to the boss's daughter. not hard to figure out.
his ego is so big he goes "ok none of these other guys can get Reigns over, no matter how hard they try. Guess if you want something done right, gonna have to do it myself." That is literally his mindset.
Triple H seems like he's pretty fed up with Vince if you ask me. His promo was so generic on RAW, you can just tell he doesn't care about the main roster booking.
What is he going to tell Vince? No, he doesn't want to win the title?
I actually didn't, that's pretty brutal.
I was told that Steph announced that Fast Lane Main Event, though.
>Cole sells Haitch eliminating Roman and the Authority finally succeeding in taking the title in the Rumble
>24 hours later they give Roman another chance
Ye but why doe
People can get over on Match quality like Cesaro, squash matches have diminishing returns and don't necessarily get you over see Baron Corbin.
I care a lot about who wins but if the match quality dropped low enough I think I would stop watching.
AJ is 38 years old
his back is already fucked
how's he not going to get injured at a house show in Evansville in a match against Kane?
>people actually think he'll be a champ at some point in WWE
Not sure McMahon will give up on Reigns for the near future (granted, he has aborted previous pushes for some perceived to be "his" guys, namely Luger).
Think Ambrose can really break the assumed roof over him? He gets consistent reactions and has had time in the main event, albeit in the major PPV interims.
looking forward to mauro calling his match on sd if he has one
So Brock is in the 3 way match at Fastlane.
Brock is dominating, clearly on his way to win it all. Ref bump. Out come Wyatts. Wyatts beat the shit out of Brock, allowing Reigns to get the upper hand. Reigns pins Ambrose, that way Brock doesn't eat the pin.
Reigns vs Triple H at Mania
Brock vs Bray
>you now remember how hype The Shield were, especially at debut.
He's probably going full time so he can make enough money to never work again once his contract is up.
>people actually think he'll be a champ at some point in WWE
Not a mark but it would be smart. Will rollins out, cena out, roman disregarded by all types of fans and rollins out AJ could be a short-term babyface that could carry the company through 2016.
It does make complete sense, but Vince would never have someone he didn't turn into a star as Champ, especially one that was the face of anti-wwe for so long. Fuck that egotistical codger.
Think AJ will be fine: at worst he'll reach post-AAA Del Rio's ceiling – and he's already more of a merch mover than ADR ever was. Again, he's only been in the company 2 days.
think your concerns are more apt for Nakamura, if reports of his supposedly crocked back are true (he smokes like a motherfucker too).
people were concerned he would have to cancel his match at Final Battle because of his back. Then Lethal wound up working the back in the match. I can't tell if I got worked or not desu. I'm shoot confused.
Ok /wwe/, since roman isn't looking so strong right now, write a new angle for him.
I give up on Roman
I wanted to like him since the month of Survivor Series because we knew he was either have the tittle or still chase it
But at the TLC PPV , him beating up Haitch could of open opportunities for his character
But after that, nothing, still the same
So why do people overrate NJPW so much?
Just watched a few AJ Styles matches that I saw people hyping up as his best there.
They were very good I wont deny that, but they aren't jaw droppingly ground breaking million times better than anything you see in WWE level like some people act as though they are.
Nice headline rolling stone
It really is amazing how this company fucks up since simple things, isn't it? Heel Roman was pretty much screaming in Vince's face and he ignored it in favour of continuing the mentally unstable Cena rip off, who is going psycho one minute and joking about testicles the next.
because it's not popular and most people don't watch it, so it makes them feel like elitists to watch it.
>oh you watch WWE? That's for kids. I watch NJPW
Basically, smarks are hipster faggots.
When will Roman drop the Shield gimmick? The Shield has been over for what? 2 years now? Why does he still use the music, still come in from the crowd, still wear his vest? Even when Triple H was with DX he still had his own identity, his own gimmick. Reigns is literally the same reigns we saw at his debut but he's solo. Why is this ok?
He joins the Social Outcasts but even though he completely outclasses them struggles with confidence issues after getting rejected by the fans. Bo Dallas with the help of the rest get up to whacky hijinks to try and help Roman get his mojo back.
[spoiler] it climaxes with a big group hug after Reigns wins the title at Wrestlemania, and realizes he gained more than the title and respect of the fans. He gained friends. [/spoiler]
I already did in another thread but I write him the following way going forward -
He loses to Dean at Fast Lane due to interference by Sheamus, which Dean does not see. At Mania Roman gets Sheamus in a no holds barrred match and loses it, becomes unhinged and destroys Sheamus and kayfabe hurts him seriously. After Dean wins the title against Triple H in the main event, Roman's music hits. He comes down via the stage instead of the crowd and has a smirk on his face. He extends his hand to Dean, but then spears and destroys Dean in the ring. Talking like how he rekt H and Sheamus at the past ppv. Then he opens the RAW after mania and he's completely lost it by being screwed, that Dean stole his moment and putting the whole roster on notice. Roman then will go back to his shield gimmick but alone, of random runins and interference and generally just destroying people. He would call himself the hound of justice and become a monster heel.
I bet you're the same type of faggot that whines that Cena is too much of a goody two shoes.
>wahh babyfaces should be more edgy, they're superman!!!!!11
>wahh why are they mean??? how are they babyfaces???
That Kalisto V Del Rio match was so much fun, negl. Glad to see Kalisto walk away with the U.S. Title, though it sucks that it took Sin Cara getting injured for Kalisto to get a singles push.
people overrate it because it isn't mainstream and it makes them feel like they are in on something. but i can't deny that his matches there are very good, good enough to get me excited to see him in a wwe capacity. they are not jaw-dropping ahead of the curve, but they are at what i think is a very high level, and there are only a few dudes in the wwe that go at that level.
Lads, is the RR Roman's death knell?
Marks are clearly the demographic the WWE are trying to transfigure into the "Roman Empire" and they're notoriously enormously fickle. I mean, Cena's merch sales dropped when he took a clean loss to Owens.
Being roasted so hard by the crowd will definitely jar his image amongst the jimmies and they'll no longer feel it cool to cheer him.
Is it finally decidedly ogre for RoRo?
Oh fuck I want this to happen so bad. It sounds like the best Heel storylines in years...
>y2j comes out
>aj styles comes out
>the rock comes out
>roman reigns comes out
But they loudly chant RANDY SAVAGE because some memer in the audience. What the fuck is wrong with millenials
Fans like that shtick nowadays. Non-mastodons are in and it just means people can portray believable underdogs.
He could still serve to bulk up a BIT, though. There's a difference between "good underdog build" and "I could whoop this guy".
Also he has two moves, one of them is a lariat he spams to nonsensical levels. So it's a bit offensive that he's twiggy.
>Haitch v Brock v Roman Reigns
Why is this more of a possibility than it should be for WM
When is he coming to WWE brahs?
Reply to this post with every /asp/ wwe meme
It wasn't as bad as last year's, or the year before, but it was pretty retarded all around, and HHH becoming champion in 2016 to top it all off just shows how lazy the writing is
And now Natty will go back to not being on TV
So they werent cut out for it. I bet you are one of those guys that keep your 'thanks for participating' medal from the sports day egg and spoon race on your basement bedroom wall arent you faggot
yup, that place was shit back then.
Ace was understanding about him wanting to go and tried to help hook him up with some of his Japanese contacts but since he didn't have a name they had nothing for him. It was an interview with a Japanese blog about American wrestling that got him noticed by DDT.
>my actual face when
Bret is something that Trips wishes he was and did everything in his power to be but failed. It keeps him up every night
The top guy and beloved super over babyface that got over organically
Trips is the true hater here kiddo
There are if you want to go fuck around with them but I don't care for the private trackers like Xtremewrestlingtorrents since you have to seed or else they cut you off so if you want to maintain a good ratio you have to torrent and seed RAW or whatever the popular shit is even if you don't watch.
Too much of a hassle imo.
Kayfabe in 2016 is not the same thing as it was in the 80's or even the 90's.
That doesn't mean you should go full Russo on that shit but acknowledging on the very rare occasion that there is a script is not necessarily a bad thing.
>low brow entertainment
>gay jokes are taboo
You must have been triggered hard when old man Flair "raped" Becky in that Divas match, faggot. Also 8/10 if bait.
Best segment ever
In regards to the posts about putting Roman back in the title picture, slightly, the best way to fix that is have the Authority push the idea that again, Ambrose is opposing Roman for the WWE title. They commented that Roman is broken etc but he still has Dean. Clearly the looks on their faces at the end of Raw was 'Fuck. We are fighting again.' Right after a 2 man powerbomb re: old school Shield. The other side is that while they are facing each other, Lesnar is also there to destroy (possibly for real because he is sloppy and dangerous as fuck) them both. Ambrose and Roman have 0 chance after Lesnar story rapes everyone including the un-knock over-able Strowmann with ease.
All they have to do to make it happen is have enough faith in Dean to ME Wrestlemania. He's been in a lot of main events and always gets huge pops and the triple H angle might be strong enough to get some real hype behind it.
Double-turn him and Haitch. Trips is cast as the veteran in doubtful health forced to take on a monster who has been destroying his family, his company, and the traditions he defends. It doesn't even require a major change in the storyline.
