So Tony Nese took the lumbar check and managed to skid across the mat on his head for 5 feet.

On today's WOR, Meltzer talked about how the planned main event for the Rumble was Brock Vs. Finn, but Vince has scrapped it thinking Balor wasn't over enough. For a match two months away.

I thought Paige came off super well on the mic last night, especially when she was playing to the crowd. She looked really happy and confident, a long way from the nadir of the Del Rio mess.

Miz vs Reigns was a really fun match as well. Excited to see who Roman works with the Intercontinental Title. I feel like Joe is a potential feud but they'll probably save him for post-Mania given his strong record over Reigns on TV this year. I want to see Reigns vs Elias

Pure speculation, but I could see that being a situation where Brock didn't want to work with him.

I would think Brock's feuds with Braun Strowman, Samoa Joe, and AJ Styles still have gas in the tank, so they could always do a rematch.

No reason they couldn't go back to Joe with a no DQ or something to freshen it up

The way he worded it made it sound like Vince never really saw Finn as a main event guy, booked him to get killed by Kane like a chump to dull his heat, then used his lesser crowd reaction as justification to not have him in the main event.

To be fair, Finn vs. Brock is a match I have no desire to see.

Finn hasn't impressed me one bit in NXT or WWE, and Lazy Brock is Lazy Brock.

It just came to me that I bet Finn wins the Rumble and uses that to jump to Smackdown and face AJ for the WWE Title at WrestleMania. Nakamura has been a flop on the main roster, but the last AJ-Finn match was relatively well-received.

After last year's miracle with Shane, AJ vs literally anyone will be well recieved.

I get that you're not impressed with Finn and that there's nothing I could say to make you change your mind, but... Finn vs. AJ was excellent. I know you'll credit it to it being AJ and negate Finn's performance, but that was fantastic.

 

IIRC his match with Reigns on that RAW where he earned a spot in the Universal title match was pretty good too.

 

He was also super over in NXT and is super over on RAW.

 

How has Nakamura been a flop on the main roster? They built his debut as one of the selling points for that one PPV in which he debuted on, gave him various title matches and has been featured as one of the top guys on SDL beating some fo the big names on the show. The fact that he hasn't won the title yet doesn't mean he's been a flop.

While I absolutely despise Ruby Riot and don't care much for Liv Morgan.....I am very happy to see Sarah Logan getting a shot on television. After killing herself on the indy circuit as Crazy Mary Dobson, and having what I thought was the best match of the Mae Young Classic in the first round against Mia Yim, I think she deserves it, and I hope she does well.

Nothing says "Smackdown definately isn't the B show, no sir" than doing the exact same angle Raw did the night before.

They are really teasing a .Bryan heel turn with him interrupting Shane and showing his look of disapproval and confusion when Shane left backstage. My guess it will be Shane is the one turning in the end. Or maybe they just pull the trigger with Bryan

He's been a flop in terms of performances. I liked him in New Japan but if you were to believe his greatest advocates he was going to be at worst the 2nd best worker in the company behind AJ. That hasn't really materialised and he's been accused of coasting a good few times. His high points have been good but not great TV matches with Cena and Orton as well as maybe the second Jinder match depending on personal preference.

There's no way Ruby Riot is ready for the main roster. She was bad in developmental even. What the fuck, WWE?

Anyone who has really followed Nakamura's career knows he's wildly inconsistent and tends to save his best performances for big matches. Now, I wasn't expecting the level of coasting he's done in NXT/WWE so far, but I can't say I'm shocked either. Shit, even though he was clearly motivated for the Cena match, I hadn't seen him as locked in as he was in Survivor Series since his debut vs Sami.

I had a feeling when Ruby started growing her hair out she was going to get a call up soon. Not wanting the women on the roster to have short hair is like Vince Quirk #687686876.

 

 

At least this hopefully solves a couple of issues, NXT had a glut of women not getting enough work on TV, and the main roster had a laughably small women's division since the brand split. I don't think any of the six brought up are ready for prime time to be honest (Paige is sure to have tons of ring rust), but at least it freshens things up.
