    Sounds like it's more of a celebratory event than anything.

    Sabu was indeed the shiz. Too bad hacksaw Jim Dugan wasn't in his prime. That cross eyed tard would set em straight with his 2X4. Who else is gonna be in it?

    This serious?

    Wow

    I heard on a podcast last week that there were rumours of Brock returning to ufc as a way to get the crowd to switch from Brock to Roman
    But just as I thought would happen, it back fired and the crowd hated both

    Edit: holy fuck it's real

    Brock Lesnar re-signs with WWE; will face Reigns at Greatest Royal Rumble

    They said Vince called the switch last minute. If you rewatch the match. The ref makes the call. Vince didn't like the crowds reaction. He believes Roman will be over with the crowd at the Rumble......

    For a guy that's done so much. Vince makes some weird and dumb decisions.

    Just had to put them in the co main spot. Im so confuzzled. Crowd hates them both, but after sitting through 7 hours of good stuff, they are tired, want to leave. I think Vince hates Roman.

    @Bozy@Bozy

    Smackdown results, which killed the Raw show in my opinion.

    -Shane McMahon assigns Paige as the new SD GM. Crowd chants its her house, she is quite grateful. Bryan is officially a full time performer once again. Announces AJ vs DBry as main event (holy shit)


    Naomi vs Natayla over Natty saying Naomi is shit.
    -Naomi wins.
    ***If I had to give a star rating, would give it One Billy Gun. Nothing match


    New Day vs Usos for number one contendership to BB’s at The Greatest Royal Rumble PPV.
    -New Day were on much of the offense. They hit their normal notes.
    -Usos eventually take control, get the win.
    -BB come out and point their hammers, Harper’s mask is awesome.
    -Announcers tease teams may be broken up next week.


    Charolette Flair comes out
    -Says she is honored about her match with Asuka. Says it “was magical” and she wants to know who she will make magic with next.
    -The Iconics(Billie Kay and Peyton Royce) debut! They say Flair is being boring in shades to Alexa’s Raw Debut calling Banks Bayley stupid.
    -They brawl. Iconics use numbers and doible powerbomb on the outside to take her out.


    Carmella cashes in!
    -After the ref oddly didnt know what was happening, despite it being the same on who cashed in Dean’s contract. Not sure how I remember that. Eventually starts match
    -Carmella superkicks Flair for the win! She celebrates for a full 5 minutes. Awesome
    (No Becky or Asuka tonight)
    *Ten Tyes awarded

    Renee tries to interview Shinsuke. He has evolved into Swagsuke Trollamura. Says he may have been over emotional at Mania. Renee says he is being not genuine. He replies, and I quote! “No speak Engrish”

    Triple Threat for US Numero Uno Contenderuno. Bobby Roode vs Rusev vs Randy Orton.
    Was pretty damn great match. Actually was very fun up until Orton won. So get to revisit that gold of a rivalry. Orton vs Mahal at GRR

    Daniel Bryan vs AJ Styles
    -They did some excellent mat wrestling; with no movements wasted.
    -Back and forth match with them countering each submission with a transition into a pin or their own submission. Calf Crusher vs Yes Lock.
    -AJ hit an awesome Pele into hard clothesline.
    -Bryan countered the Phenominal Forearm with a kick to the mid section. Went bonkers after that
    -AJ reversed the Running Double Knee into a rolling transition into an attempted Style’s Clash.

    Swagsuke Trollamura showed up. Kinshasa’ed Bryan in the back of the head. Low blowed AJ, did some combos. Then low blowed him again! Exits to chorus of boos.

    Ten Tyes!!

    I normally prefer smackdown but I thought raw was better this week.
    Maybe I'm a little biased as a Charlotte fan and I can't even handle Carmella's shrieking. I was also disappointed to see Orton win the triple threat. The night kind of fell flat for me.

    Having said that I'm excited to have Paige as GM and Styles/Bryan was a nice taste of what may come.

    I posted this in the wrong thread. Whoops.

    Guess just a difference in opinions. Both good ahows. I enjoyed Paige and a glimpse of AJ vs Bryan. With a full match thats going to be incredible.

    Uso vs New Day delivered, Triple Threat was fun until Orton won. Good debut for Iconics, and finally the cash in! Her celebrating forever was equally as hilarious. Heel Shinsuke is also fun.

    Raw felt like I was robbed of longer segments with people I enjoy. Braun just vacated the titles, Ronda jusr sorta showed up, Wyatt and Hardy were gold though.

    Watched it the other night. It was very long and to me it seemed off. Not sure if it was because the whole bottom section was either empty or filled with people walking around and not interested. The energy was weird.

    The matches were solid. Nice to see Bray with a belt again. AJ/Nak was great. The Usos looked good as always. If you watched the Rumble. Primo Colon had a couple of botches that looked horrible. Cass almost got his knee tore again entering the ring and people falling on him. Also Lashley dropped him neck first trying to do that stupid hanging suplex.

    Overall it was a good card. 4 out of 5 For me

    I watched it. Pretty good show. The rumble itself kinda blew ass tho until brawn got there. Very sloppy and not as good as I hoped for

    It was okay. Crowd was awfully weird. Might’ve thrown me off that green shirt cap fuck wasnt in the front row, but a ton of Iron Shieks
