Why was Roman Reigns booked in a handicap match for the US title? How is that fair? Who the fuck booked this. There was no storyline that called for this handicap match.

>There was no storyline that called for this handicap match.
Makes sense, Roman's US Title gimmick is that he has no storyline related to the US title
>>
>>2139084
Just one of the many reasons Smackdown is superior to Raw
>>
>>2139084
Because no one on the roster is strong enough to beat him 1 vs 1. That's all there is to it. They didn't want him to actually give a rub to anyone.
>>
Because Stephanie is a bad guy and Roman is so strong, he's like "okay, without a single objection, I'll take this match that's virtually impossible for me to win because ONE VS. ALL BIG DOG AWOO #AHHHYESSIR"

The weird fact wasn't even that the match was made, it's that Roman didn't even care. Almost like the US Title doesn't actually mean anything to him 'cause he has another title match in three weeks.
>>
HE STILL OVERCAME ODDS. IT TOOK AT LEAST 6 BEATINGS THAT WOULD MAKE A NORMAL WRESTLER PINNABLE TO PIN HIM. WHAT A SUPERSTAR, BYRON.
>>
>>2139084
Because they want him to focus on the world title when he wins it at RR, and there's no time for a storyline for that, because RR is happening very soon.
>>
The midcarders on Raw are just jobbers to Based Big Dog

He'll take the Eva Marie belt and fight Bork and Oldberg for it at Wrestlemania
>>
This is a valid point, the only continuity on raw is that Foley and Steph are autonomous and book the show based on how their characters make decisions. Compare making this match with no reason to making new day have 2 matches in one night. Both are dumb, but at least Steph had an on screen reason to do it
>>
>>2139084
Blah blah blah, Stef hates Roman, Sasha, and Rollins because "reasons"
>>
roman is le unbeatable and charisma vacuum, so they just booked this to take the belt that he buried off him
>>
>>2139126
do you realize how badly that would expose Roman?

Because Goldberg would get cheers.
Lesnar would get boos.

And Roman would get ignored by the crowd
>>
>>2139280
Lesnar would get cheers whenever he would attack roman

you can have titus run in at WM33 and punch roman and he would get cheers as well
>>
How are ya dweebs not seeing through the facade.

The Universal title match is finna turn into stipulation if Owens loses then Roman will get Uni title AND US title.
>>
>Owens vs Roman match starts
>everything horribly goes wrong and the shark cage breaks and falls on Roman
>permanently squashes him forever
>can never wrestle again because he's a pancake now
>crowd cheers louder than ever

This shark cage shit is going to be a disaster
>>
>>2139300
Or Braun does a run in
>>
>>2139084
Only the one we have been seing for the last 8months of jeriKO teaming up against roman and seth
>>
>>2139280
Roman is there to tank Lesnar's offense and to win, not to pander to smarks who will boo him anyway

>ignored
(lol
>>
>>2139308
There is no point for a Braun/Roman feud without something on the line.

Roman wins? Okay
Braun wins? Okay
>>
>>2139300
There will be a stipulation that will ban everyone ringside and should they interfere they will forfeit their spot at the Rumble

Jericho won't do anything on top of the cage while Romanwinslol
>>
>>2139084

The storyline is that Steph is a dick to Roman because of reasons.

It doesn't make any sense, but smarks are praising it cause Roman lost so i guess its a win for them.
>>
>>2139395
steph is fashy and hates nonwhites this explains how a 300 pound pasty fatty is the champ
>>
Yeah but did you see that beating he took? Made him look strong tbchf

And he won them all

>>2139621
Fucking Rock
>>
>>2139621
True but: none of those matches had Rock with a midcard belt going up against the champion and another person. he was going up against guys all perennially lower on the card than he was.
>>
>>2139621
Also

The Rock vs Test & Albert Handicap

>Roman wins at Royal Rumble
>AJ Styles retains
>Undertaker wins the rumble
>triple threat at mania for the the unified title
>Roman gets the rub and wins his 2nd wrestlemania main event pinning undertaker clean

how hard would you mark?
>>
>>2139746
How would you do the build up even. Undertaker is the only one that can go on any brand but he won't do it.
>>
>>2139746
>AJ Styles retains
Nice try Allenetty but you're jobbing to BMJ
>>
>JeriKO feud will probably start within the next month
Gonna miss their friend.
