Re: Bah Gawd Rowan is the mystery driver!!

I would like to think The Fiend took control of Rowan and he ordered the attack on Reigns. That's why Bryan was so surprised.

Please tell me you're joking.
Nope.

Kurt Angle’s career highlights video is full of stupid, cheap skits in cheap costumes and dumb angles.

That’s what the wider potential audience likes about fake fighting - they don’t come to wrestling hoping for an experience like Game of Thrones.

I’m serious, the wrestling bubble takes itself WAY too seriously because it’s become an echo chamber where nobody wants to feel ashamed for liking something so low brow, so they critique it like it’s supposed to be something sophisticated.

I’m 100% correct, but I don’t expect people to agree with me.

Agree, this and the 24/7 title have been be only segments I found interesting from the past month or two of YouTube highlights

Every other storyline is about wanting to prove they can beat somebody in a wrestling match because they’re a “better” pre-determined match winning wrestler.

Re: Bah Gawd Rowan is the mystery driver!!

Is Luke Harper likely to come back at all, as this only indicated Rowan was on the scene last week not that he was the driver on Monday? I’m still thinking this is a group to lead to a group feud with the Samoans, to then lead to the Samoans/OC. It covers for Roman singles wise working a full schedule and Vince doesn’t have the Shield to fall back on (I do not want it either).

The only other ponder I had before tonight’s episode is if it was an NXT group like Undisputed Era to give them a Nexus like debut. Seems that’s not the case though.

Re: This Roman Reigns storyline has been amazing

Be nice if there was some twist that Buddy Murphy was spinning Roman to throw him off after getting attacked for merely being there. Unlikely I know as how dare they plan to actually build up Buddy at the expense of superhuman now movie star Reigns. Just they could play this out longer as Buddy only saw Rowan there last week, how would he know who was driving the car? Unless Buddy was part of the plan with other conspirators and Rowan was the one that just happened to be there.

Literally the only 2 segments I enjoyed from the YouTube highlights this week were the 24/7 stuff and the surprise Roman attacks backstage.

Do you know why?

They’re non-wrestling storyline developments.

Serious wrestling about play fighters legitimately trying to “beat” other play fighters to prove who is “better” only appeals to geeks.
Sorry to break it to you bud, but wrestling only appeals to geeks, period. If you're a wrestling fan, then you're a geek.

He could always go get a real job that contributes to society if he hates it that much.

He has a black belt in BJJ and teaches Jiu Jitsu, also occasionally wrestles...

Weird that they haven’t wrapped the angle up in time for SummerSlam. I guess they’ll be either announcing it on the night. Seems strange that they wouldn’t have advertised matches in place for two of their biggest names.
