Perhaps I will join you all in here and we'll see if that keeps me pushing on. Card looks pretty great, either way.


That's honestly one of the reasons I'm here. Eating food, drinking coffee, consuming sugar, and posting in this thread are what is going to keep me going through a marathon Mania.

I still say a lot of it stems from him, a football wash out rather
than a veteran indie darling replacing Chris Hero in CM Punks orginial vision of The Shield, and then being THE GUY in the 2015 Rumble after all the fan favorites got eliminated.

The good thing about turning Reigns is that if that's really what they're doing (and I'm suspicious) is that I can't see Shane turning on Bryan the same night.

I think you might be a little too "smark" and "inside" with this one.

90% of the WWE audience has no idea who Chris Hero is.

90% of the wider NXT audience, who wasn't exposed to Chris Hero before, doesn't care one bit about Kassius Ohno.

 

The other 10% of the narrower NXT audience, who watches indies and know who Chris Hero is, thinks Ohno should be utilized better - despite not looking or sounding like a star, not being particularly over with the wider NXT fanbase, and coming across as Duke "The Dumpster" Drose 2018.

 

You can argue all day that NXT should utilize Hero better, but that hasn't stopped others with mostly losses - like "The Perfect 10" Ty Dillinger - from gaining a following. Ohno doesn't really have that in NXT.

Guesses on opening match? IC title?

I think Ronda/Angle go over but I wouldn't be surprised with a screwy finish to build to a Ronda v Steph singles match at Summerslam. I guess it all depends on how long they want to wait to put Ronda with the rest of the women's division. Honestly at his point she probably isn't ready

It looks like both battle royals will be on the kickoff show, so be sure to tune in early if you want to see them.

Meltz says Alicia Fox was sent home after getting into a confrontation with Travis Browne (Ronda's husband) at the hotel last night.

Putting two Battle Royals on the pre-show seems like an odd choice to me.

 

Then again, having what essentially ends up being a 7 hour show is also an odd choice.

Alice Cooper is a guitarist for Shinsuke's WM entrance...

Not really related, but did you hear Harry Smith went nuts at Wrestlecon and threw a cup of hot coffee in Jake the Snake's face?

I could see this if they want to build to the big matches in a rather straight line.  If they opt to spread things out a bit more I could see AJ/Nak or even the Bryan/Shane tag open up. Perhaps Smackdown tag titles?

Wow, the WrestleMania set is NUTS this year. They always go all out, but I really like this one.

I've only got time to watch the Kickoff live but looking forward to this show! Set looks pretty spectacular.

 

Kickoff with the cruiserweights and battle royals is on youtube for those without the network.

Thinking it'll be Usos vs. New Day vs. Harper & Rowan.

The Alicia Fox deal won't impact things in the slightest, and granted we don't know the surrounding circumstances, but it leaves a bad taste in my mouth.  Travis Browne doesn't exactly have a stellar civic reputation when it comes to women or a long history as a selfless member of the WWE UniverseTM.  Its obvious why they made this call and am not surprised in the slightest, but it doesn't sit well.

Who the hell is Travis Browne (besides being Ronda's husband) and what did he do?

 

The fact is, Ronda is a star and WWE is going to bend over backward to please her. Foxy - as much as I like her - isn't a star, never has been, and probably never will be at this point.

 

Politics - it sucks, but it's life.

Damn, he's bizarre.

Replace coffe by beer & wine (and coffee at some point, because what the hell) and that's me too.

The show hasn't started yet ? Damn, I better get confy on the couch already. Browsing through my brand-new DDPYoga App now, waiting for a boring Battle Royal which will be won by a guy who won't get any kind of push in the upcoming months.

 

The set is spectacular.
