THATS THE WALL BROTHER
That Sheamus vs Harper match is wonderful.
Don't forget hornswoggle was also released, 8 years too lateSo in 2016 we've had Kevin Steen vs El Generico on a WWE PPV, AJ Styles working back-to-back main event programs with the 2 top WWE babybfaces, Shinsuke Nakamura signing for WWE, Samoa Joe holding a WWE title, James Storm wrestling for WWE without signing a contract, Bobby Roode and Kota Ibushi all appearing on WWE TV, The Rock wrestling at Wrestlemania, thumbtacks in a WWE match, a Brand Split, Shane McMahon vs Undertaker in HIAC at Wrestlemania with Shane jumping off the top of the cell, a squash match on Raw against local jobbers, Cody Rhodes quitting, Damien Sandow getting released, Titus O'Neil getting a 90 day suspension for goofing around, Daniel Bryan retired, Eva Marie had a match at Wrestlemania quite frankly not far below the quality of match Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns each had, the Women had the MOTN at a Wrestlemania, a near 1 hour match on WWE TV and Austin Aries signing with WWE.
Oh and Steve Lombardi got released.
AND NOW BROCK LESNAR IS WORKING UFC UNDER WWE CONTRACT.
Well you can't say it's a boring year if nothing else.
Oh and on that note I watched the AJ/Cena angle from Raw yesterday and it was really good. Cena's promo before AJ came out was brilliant. I don't exactly watch promos anymore unless I feel I really need to see them or they happen on a PPV but whenever I catch a Cena promo it's really fucking great. He had one during the Owens feud last year that was a legit all time great promo. AJ/Cena chants were great too. Loved how they started off really tame but they just allowed it to build into a great moment. Shout out to the guy in the front row who switched sides halfway through it too. Oh and then the same crowd who were so hot for the stand off then start giving AJ the what treatment literally as soon as he starts talking. Wrestling crowds everyone. Turn was well done as they pretty much set AJ/Cena vs Gallows/Anderson up perfectly but then also set Cena vs The Club up perfectly at the same time. HATED HATED HATED HATED the camerawork though. Good god almighty what the fuck was that. Legit made me feel giddy watching it and absolutely killed the angle from that point on for me. It's like some kid discovering WordArt on Publisher and whoring the fuck out of it on everything to the point where his school essay is shaped like an octagon with a multi-colour shadow and nobody knows what the fuck it's supposed to be anymore. Really hope the match isn't like the Cena/Owens series but I suspect it will be.
All due respect, I don't understand how anyone could dislike Zayn. He's the best pure white-meat babyface in who knows how long. His selling abilities are unparalleled, possessing some of the most realistic and sympathetic facial expressions and body language to the point where it is palpable, as you can feel his "discomfort".Despite not being a fan of Zayn, the match with Nakamura was great. I will say though, the crowd got a bit annoying to me with all the chants. I'm sure I'm the only one who feels that way or one of the few, but I recall the crowd taking me out of the match a bit with the constant chanting. Was still a great match, I need to rematch it again to refresh my mind but I'd be somewhere around the **** 1/4, ****1/2 range.
Oh I could absolutely see Roman/Lesnar II happening, I just didn't know what else to do with Rollins unless they pull the trigger on the match with Triple H.I've been saying Reigns vs Brock II is going to be the SummerSlam main event for a while now. I don't see how Rollins is put into that, especially when he's p. much a lock going to take a loss come MITB. (unless it ends dirty and they drag it out to Battleground, lolz)
Reigns getting the W over Lesnar is the final piece of the puzzle left to accomplish. That's where the story has taken us.
What faces do you care for?I have no real reason why I don't care for him. I think it's mainly the character, just the happy go lucky babyface. I can't get behind him, however I respect his in ring ability and don't question it, just simply don't care for him. I don't hate him or anything by any means, but I wouldn't go out of my way to watch him.
