Re: Sum up what happened in the last 7 months?

Reigns actually got over, he now kills people but still does goofy ass promos, The Authority still run and ruin the place, Reigns finally won the title and will defend in the Rumble match itself.

New Day went from being funny to bordering on overused and annoying.

Kevin Owens and Ambrose have really stepped up, especially Owens.

Divas have had a couple of really good story lines.

Still loads of underutilized talent, ratings still shitty and loads of injuries

That's really it, you've not missed much, the whole of 2015 was dedicated to getting Roman over

Roman Reigns is champ

That's literally all that's of any note since it's literally all Vince McMahon cares about. Cena 2.0's era has begun

Oh, ratings have been in the shitter. And apparently WWE just signed a bunch of top stars from New Japan Pro Wrestling

Dolph Ziggler needs to stop trying to morph into Caitlyn Jenner or GTFO my TV.

Injuries. There's been a lot of them

On a positive note, the IC title finally has some relevance thanks to the great Ambrose/Owens feud that is going on

Lots of injuries. Reigns has developed into a major player. Owens/Ambrose is looking like a top feud. Ratings still poor but product is still decent.

Re: Sum up what happened in the last 7 months?

Undertaker wrestled like 5-6 times and it was awesome. Bray Wyatt stole his thunder (literally) and teased at becoming mega powerful... and then continued to job at every PPV since.

Brock Lesnar had a couple of appearances and tore apart a car with an axe.

John Cena had a weekly US Open Challenge and put over a number of talent in great matches and you never knew who he would face next. As a result, Cena probably had his best year for the company in a long time.

An ECW stable was revived for a few tables matches.

Kane was corporate but had memory loss each week as he slowly turned back into demon Kane. Now he's a demon again, but still stale as fuck.

NXT had an amazing year with the Sasha vs Bayley Iron Man match being considered MOTY.

The Divas Revolution began with a handful of NXT Divas getting promoted. They're in 3 stables of 3, it hasn't delivered the hype yet but the division is much better now.

Reigns had a great HITC match with Wyatt, but wasn't featured anywhere near as heavily as everyone makes out, because:

Most of the time it was the Seth Rollins show. He was booked to lose 60% of his matches, but he looks like a genuine star of the future. I'm really looking forward to his title chase in 2016.
