Piping in CM Punk over someone like Goldust is really the tipping point of anticipating a crushing defeat with these expectations. Omega vs Jericho is the headliner, lets be reasonable.

If Taker were to appear at DON even just an appearance, he doesn't have to wrestle, I will faint...

not sure if there is a travel thread for this yet, but starcast has some good hotel deals on their website, I booked at the Tuscany suites since its right int he middle of a couple of places I want to hit up that weekend, plus large rooms, and much less than anything else in that area with the group room rate. Now need to find a flight.

The Rock rarely acknowledges anything wrestling-related outside of WWE so that's cool.
Not entirely true.

He used to praise Ricochet and Kevin Owens when they were on the indies. He was also going to show up at a PWG event to confront Kevin Owens at one stage too.

I think The Rock just has so much respect for the wrestling industry and thinks this new brand can be a good thing for the future.

I said rarely, not never. "If" that's your most recent example you can think of then that shows what I meant with my post.

Interesting that so few see Nakamura In the blurred Cody opponent image.

They’re hyping it as someone big. Brandy’s response is essentially “how are you going to make this happen.......when this person is still working for a major company?”

I’m sure I’m wrong, but i see Nakamura. I see that red Jacket. I see the hair obscuring the face. I’ve seen that image before. And obviously it will be a stock image given Nakamura ain’t traveling to Jacksonville to take photo’s just yet.

When I Immediately responded to the image on twitter Cody liked the tweet. Yes that means nothing, but still.

We get different reports of Nakamura’s happiness in WWE. Meltzer dodges every question on his contract status,or gives a non answer. His contract will be up before DON, and he’s not doing a fucking thing of note on SD.

It’s prob fucking hornswoggle, and I’m prob way off. Yet I at least would like to think I’m putting some bigger clues together that fit the criteria for the hype they’re building around the opponent. More so than the lack of imagination I’m seeing with ideas like, MJF, Dustin, and Marty.

I’ve even tried to see other rumored big names...like Batista, Chris Hero, and I still see Nakamura.

I say he praises non-WWE shows/characters just as much as he praises WWE shows/characters.

He's a wrestling man. Not a WWE man.

Your post would have been more accurate if you simply had said he "rarely acknowledges anything wrestling related"

In the last 5 months alone he's tweeted praise for Cody winning the NWA Championship and now Jericho's promo and praising AEW for selling out.

I genuinely cannot remember the last time he praised WWE or congratulated anyone within that company?

In fact, didn't he come out and say he wants to distance himself from the WWE due to the whole Saudi thing as it makes him look bad?

Good guy Rock doing whats best for business and puting over AEW.

Yeah, but if that were the case and he REALLY wanted to strap a rocket to their ass he'd make an appearance promoting them :tommy

As much as that would be amazing to see, The Rock isn't going to be making an appearance for AEW. To be fair, him tweeting about it is a big deal. Sure he got some eyes on AEW with one tweet.

Oh yeah, hell no he's not gonna do it. I do wonder what it would take to get Stone Cold or Rock to get on board with another company. I wonder if they'd ever go "FUCK IT, I want to help a new company get goin'!" lol

Money and a vision. Seems like AEW has both. Rock is never going to sign with another company. He's a big time movie star. If he does wrestling then it will be with the big league of WWE out of loyalty and name value. More likely Stone Cold would out of the two. Unfortunately Stone Cold has never been tempted out of retirement either.

I wonder if Goldberg is really AEW bound. That could be a big deal for AEW, especially since Goldberg is again so fresh in the mind of casuals after the Lesnar match a few years back.

I disagree I think Rock would have been willing to sign with another company if the money was good, and they booked him right.

People used to say Jericho would never sign with anyone but WWE too. They were wrong.

My whole reasoning with The Rock is that he is never going to commit due to his mega Hollywood career. I would be surprised for him to be able to even do the Brock Lesnar schedule due to movie commitment and insurance issues.

Then again, Jericho actually signing was shocking too so who knows.

I see somebody with dark hair that is shaved or short at the sides and longer on top. Could be Nak. What would be personal between Nak and Cody though? Nak was gone from Japan just as Cody left wwe IIRC.
