  2. Bump.....
     
  3. A few general thoughts regarding the card so far:

    Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal: In my opinion, it kind of seems fitting that the Big Show wins it, resemblence and all with Andre...

    Undertaker vs Brock Lesnar: in my opinion, the streak moves to 22-0. I've wrote it before but I'll just repeat that it just doesn't appear right that Lesnar ends it. Out of all people, Lesnar? Nah. Besides, and as someone already mentioned in another topic, I too agree that they've taken this streak too far already to have it end.

    HHH vs DB: Well, up until a few days ago, it was a pretty safe bet to say DB would win, one way or another and enter the mix with Orton and Batista for the belts. However, after RAW this past Monday and the bomb HHH dropped, himself entering the title match should he win kind of changes things. Or not? Either way, as good old JR would put it, business really did pick up and if there's one thing for sure, it's that it all got a lot more interesting now.
    Here's an idea: what if somebody were to interfere and cause a win by disqualification? Would that count as a good enough win for HHH or DB to advance to the title match or would they call it somewhat a tie so that both enter the title match after all and make it a Fatal 4-way after all? I know, it may sound off but just thinking out loud.

    Tag Team Championship match: One would assume that there will be one and since the Real Americans pinned the USO's on Raw this past Monday, that must give them the opportunity, right? Now, if that were to happen and given the whole story with Swagger and Cesaro not getting along, I can only imagine that it will come down to some screwup, with the USO's keeping the belts and the Real Americans going on each other. That's what the whole build-up is about anyway, right?

    Cena vs Wyatt: I honestly have a hard time calling this one but I think I will stick with Cena. If only I could figure out who will come out for Cena's aid when the rest of the Wyatt family interferes in the match....

    Divas tile match? Couldn't really care less...

  4. Tag Title Match is looking at Usos vs. Real Americans vs. Rybaxel vs. Outlaws
     
  5. Not the Outlaws. I think they'll team with Kane to take on the Shield.

  6. Doesn't Road Dogg have some kind of back problems that are supposed to keep him out of action past Wrestlemania? I heard that's why the Old Age Outlaws dropped the titles to The Usos as early as they did. The Ascension, according to the rumors anyway, are probably going to be Kane's partners.
     
  7. He does but it will be fine by Mania. Watch SD, Shield v Kane/NAO is definitely happening. NAO asked to work with The Shield before they leave, and because they're pals with Hunter, we never got the Shield split and triple threat at Mania.
     
  8. The good part of that being that they're most likely going to put the Shield over big time and give them another huge rub before going back to their backstage roles.

  9. lol how the fuck can NAO give The Shield a rub? NAO & Kane are dogshit, and this match is suitable for SmackDown. The Shield have already been put over by The Rock, The Undertaker, John Cena, CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, etc. At the biggest event of the year they should be doing something much more important than this. This match ain't shit for them.

  10. And beating a 3-time World Champion and 12-time tag team champion combined with a team that held the tag titles six times themselves does nothing for the Shield?

    I get it. You hate Kane and, apparently the New Age Outlaws, but what you're missing is the mythology that's been produced by the storyline. Kane and the Outlaws, however you feel about them personally, are seen in-story (and by the fans) as a legitimate threat to destroy the "young pups" of the Shield. That was the whole point of JBL's repeated assertion that "experience and cunning beat youth and excitement any day". That was why the Outlaws recently held the tag titles for a sixth time, to build them up as a threat despite their rather advanced ages (at least in terms of pro wrestling).

  11. I don't hate those 3, I just think it's a total waste for The Shield.

    Kayfabe, they are weak too. The NAO have been jobbing to The Usos, while Kane has lost multiple matches against Bryan recently. How are they a threat?

    It's sucks how The Shield can go over all-time greats like Rock, Taker, Cena, etc, and then be wasted like this at the biggest event.

  12. They're on the card in a match that's not a 30-man battle royal. The NAO lost the tag titles to the Usos, who are the current tag team champions. Kane has lost multiple matches to Daniel Bryan, who, kayfabe, is one of the top (many would say the top) wrestler in the company. It's not like the NAO have been losing regularly to the likes of Santino and Fandango while Kane's been doing the honors for Heath Slater.

    Besides, I would expect the Shield to go over with Reigns looking strong or one of the Shield members to turn their back on and screw the other two (smart early money would have been on Ambrose, now I'm not so sure). Either way, if it drives the storyline forward, it's not a "waste".

    wk
     
  13. Total waste. They should have either saved Shield/Wyatts or done the triple threat match at Mania. I'd rather see them go up against three credible babyfaces like last year than NAO/Kane.
     
  14. [/QUOTE]

    Let's just agree to disagree on a match between the two factions being a waste.

    wk
     
  15. I have to side more with Brad here. What kind of rub can Kane and the New Age Outlaws really give The Shield that they haven't already gotten from going over the likes of John Cena, The Undertaker, Randy Orton, Big Show and others? They've already went over Kane in the past (when he was still dressed as The Big Red Machine instead of a corporate stooge) and the Outlaws, while multi-time tag team champions, obviously aren't on the level of multi-time world champions like Cena, Orton and the Big Show (who also has the size credibility of being "The World's Largest Athlete.")

    But no matter, to me I dislike the feud not because it's bad (it isn't per se) or because there are other people who I think would be better fit to give The Shield a rub. I hate the feud because I was really looking forward to seeing The Shield split up and face off with each other on the grand stage. No other rivalry (aside from saving their first bout with The Wyatt Family for WMXXX) would have satisfied me.
     
  16. This is just another prime of example of the game show called 'Who Helmsley Likes'. This Mania has HHH's grubby fingerprints all over (which makes sense, I guess *chagrin*)
    The only thing missing from this Mania is a segment featuring HBK, Waltman, Nash and Hall celebrating the fact Scott Hall finally made it the Hall of Fame.....Errrr...was the only thing missing
    Yeah, It's great to be a pal of HHH right now. Looking on the bright side, NAO can work the stick and produce sh***y slapstick comedy that women and idiot children eat up

    The way I see it is a lose/lose/win/lose situation. "Who Helmsley Likes' may last a while since that's all that cat knows and his meat-hooks seem pretty well entrenched in the booking outline for the next, I dunno...30 years
     
  17. To me it's clear there using this "Hunter Buries." Thing as a simple storyline to burn up the marks, and to make the marks hate a heel, hmm wonder why? WWE knows the importance of WrestleMania it can make or break a year of profits for WWE, even foreshadow. WWE will use this forum crap, that HHH will bury everyone as a way to get heat around the show. No doubt in my mind Bryan has this in the bag.
