I am surprised the women got the Main Event.


I would have given it to Lesnar. That seems to be the money match .

Braun stiffed him with a knee to the face and Lesnar got PISSED. Had to edit out his cursing. I would shit my pants if Brock was legit pissed at me.

Brock really is the most professional wrestler because he can legit murder everyone but yet he sells and jobs if you ask him to.

Braun is a walking Botchamania highlight reel tonight . That dive in the table was awful .

On the replay I saw that Brock gave him a fucking shot right after the knee before he cursed at him, he was pissed. That could've gotten really ugly as Brock gets stiffed all the time but he never retaliated like that. I think Roman busted him open twice at their Wrestlemania match and he laughed it off.

Stephanie being the guest commentator makes me want to mute my TV.

This has been surprisingly good so far. Nice mix of older people doing stuff and the current generation. Stephanie on commentary is doing exactly what she should be doing; putting everyone over.

I just hope she doesn't enter this thing like rumored.

Holy heat stealing moments Batman.  Rousey stole the wind from Asuka's victory.

This was better than the men's match, probably because we weren't all just hoping Reigns wouldn't win.

What was the point of Rousey just walking out there? She botched her cue as well.

I think Finn should have won because he had all the momentum going in with his recent Bullet Club push, but Nakamura needed it more with the wa they’ve ruined him on the main roster.


Plus him vs AJ at Mania is what the hardcore fans want.


Funny final 4. WWE vs New Japan. And the wrestlemania main event will be a New Japan rematch.


I don’t think any of this is a coincidence. Vince must know New Japan is very relevant in the US as #2 promotion.

it was dumb doing the mens rumble that early. It killed the crowd. Next year both tag titles mtaches should just be on the preshow and do both world title matches on the main show. I do see a storyline between seth rollins and jason jordan where jordan says seth you entered the rumble and did not save all our energy for our tag title defense. Great to see my girl torrie wilson. Ashame we did not get to see mrs brock lesnar enter the rubmle. They never even acknowledge she existed which psises me off.  Every year I pick 14 for the rumble so this is the first year my number has won the rumble (at least that I can recall).


While Nakamura winning is nice part of me wanted a total wtf guy like heath slater or rusev winning it all. Nakamura was def a step in the right direction.

Brock absolutely SMOKED Braun with that right hand. That was just a legit punch to the face and I don't think Braun was the same after. That was nuts.

I get the Women's Rumble going on last cause it was the first ever match of it's kind. Next year will be back to either the men going on last or Universal/World Title. I get there wasn't as much native heat surrounding that match, but I think all the surprises made up for that.

In the moment, I thought all the nostalgia of the Women's RR was cool. However... looking back on it, it was poorly booked. McCool had the same number of eliminations as Nia Jax (4). Really?  :fr:

I think we know why the bellas were in the final 4 and why mccool was given a great showing. RRREEEEEEESSSSSSTTTTTTTT INNNNNN PEACE.


The thing that ticked me off was no trish vs mandy rose.

I was also disappointed in no continued stare/show down between Nia and Tamina; though both current wrestlers.

I did like the face off with Nia and Beth. That was epic.

Some of them like McCool and Phoenix looked like they could go full time.   

I like Phoenix trying to get her move on Jax.  The women's match was definitely more fun.

I believe Lita and Trish could also go full time if they both wanted but its best they both make casual appearances to not overstay their welcome. Michelle Mccoll at least imo while a decent wrestler was never really over big time as a heel champion from what I can recall. Also I  do feel bad that when the women came out if they had a significant other that was a wrestler they will chant things like Rusev Day or Cena sucks or Undertaker. I also find it fucking hilarious though.
