It's already a lot to ask of the Arena full of people that sit for 3 hours to watch a show thats mediocre but then you keep threatening a 4th hour by the time 10 rolls around

I still think Ascension was worse. They went from being the be-all, end-all tag team in NXT to squashing a few jobbers, then just getting squashed by anyone with a name including a host of inactive "legend" teams to the point where they were just killed dead. They were the proto-AOP or Bludgeon Bros, and they got turned into a joke in short order like most other call ups.

Ronda/Nia Video

I don't really get what the idea is behind Reigns at the moment. What are Vince & Co. trying to achieve by having Reigns be the way he's been recently?

To me, he's coming across as just being a whiny bitch.

Then him attacking Mahal didn't really help him, as it only made him look worse.

He's suppose to be a face but yet he's constantly complaining about how things aren't going his way, telling us all how things should be (which always involve him getting what he wants) and attacking guys backstage. That's what a heel does.

How are we supposed to like this guy?

If he was a heel however, it wouldn't be so bad but it would still be bad. I think Roman Reigns as reached the point where he's now just a complete lost cause.

He's never going to get people to like him and he's never really going to get people to dislike him. He'll always legitimately suck in the eyes of the fans and he'll never be able to do anything good or bad without receiving legitimate boos.

He's 100% damaged goods.

I don't really blame the man himself, although having much better mic skills would have really helped him now but it's mostly the way he's been presented and booked.

I think if Reigns is to be saved, then it would call for drastic measures.

Take Reigns off TV for a good long while (at least a year) and have him return suddenly, attacking the top face (if he returns as a heel) or top heel (if he returns as a face) and give him a new theme, new moves and new attire and maybe even shorten his name to just "Reigns", as Vince likes to deprive wrestlers of their first names after a while.

It would pretty much be a clean slate for Reigns and if that still didn't work, then the man is well and truly screwed, but we all know that Vince taking Reigns off TV for a long period of time will never happen.

Ronda/Nia Video

I like the name "The B-Team" for Axel & Dallas and with the story behind the name, it's perfect for them.

Now all they have to do is become champions (which I think they will) and I'll be happy.

Is Corbin losing yet more hair?

He was practically bald a some points during the match. The only reason I noticed it was because his scalp is so white.

Owens going down the "give me what I want or I'm telling mommy on you" route.

The fact that it worked just made Angle look stupid and a bit obsolete.

I look forward to buying one of those "B Shirts" from WWEShop in the future.

I've always like Axel and I like this team of him and Dallas. I can actually see them winning the titles in the future.

I'm also intrigued about "Breezango Live Tweets The Royal Wedding".

I still don't get this team of Ziggler & McIntyre. They say the locker room isn't the same as it was back in the day, as they had legends in their locker room, whereas now they don't and how today's locker room has choreographed entrances (which I thought was great coming from the man who calls himself "The Show-Off").

So in a nutshell, they don't like the current roster because it's different from when they were last a part of it together.

It's like Vince & Co. have seen old "Attitude Era Fans" complain about the current product and how they always say "The Attitude Era was the best! The wrestlers now suck!" and "Bring back The Attitude Era!" and turned it into a gimmick and gave it to Ziggler & McIntyre, for some reason.

Also, it's probably just me but McIntyre's promos have really gotten worse since the last time he was on the main roster.

I actually find Sami Zayn to be legitimately annoying.

The whole "Reigns spearing Mahal through a wall" thing would have worked perfectly if they didn't show the signs that were on the wall behind the fake wall.

That record scratch noise from Ziggler's theme seems to get worse every time I hear it.

They need to just get rid of it already.

Ronda/Nia Video

I can actually see Owens winning the MITB ladder match.

I know it's very early days but giving Owens a briefcase as a prop for about a year seems like something Vince & Co. would do and I can already see Owens with it on Raw and attempting to cash it in pretty much every chance he gets and then deciding not to at the very last second and coming up with an excuse each time, which most people would find funny.

I used to be quite interested in Strowman and I liked pretty much everything about him when he first went solo as a heel, although the "flipping shit over" shtick got kinda old, fast.

But now, I don't really have much interest in him as he's pretty much turned into this "cookie-cutter big good guy". I feel that he's only a few smiles and high-fives away from dancing in the ring.

He's going the way the majority of big imposing guys in the WWE have went:

• Big Bastard of a man is destructive as hell and nobody can stop him.

• Big Bastard of a man is a bad dude and not even all these good guys can stop him.

• Big Bastard of a man shows a more human side to him.

• Big Bastard of a man is now a good guy. Bad guys beware!

• Everyone loves this Big Bastard of a man, he now smiles more and interacts with the fans.

• Big Bastard of a man has a humourous side. Look how funny he is!

• Big Bastard of a man sure can dance!

• We all love this Big Bastard of a man. He's funny, he's strong, he beats up bad guys and he smiles all the time too!

I just don't the fascination with him. He sucked when he showed up and looked like a giant Eugene. He has surely gotten a little better and now has a better haircut, but he's over because they paid a bunch of geeks to get tossed around by him. You could have literally done the same thing with Nailz back in the day. It takes very little actual talent.

And that lack of talent has been exposed time and time again. When he worked solo against Brock, he fucked up basic spots. I can't remember the exact video, but Brock was basically trying to get him to do something, and Braun was just lying there like a fucking buffoon because he's got no clue what he is doing because he's not a very good wrestler, haha. Then there's the incident in the Triple Threat where Braun fucked up the knee, so Brock tattooed him with a punch in the side of his fucking head. Then there was that time that he was no-selling in the Rumble against Brock, so Brock was like "Fuck you, buddy" and legitimately knocked the piss out of him to send him to the mat. They're just the Brock ones.

He's gotten more over because of the anti-Roman sentiments. People are being force-fed the top guy, so they will take anyone over him. Anyone. But Braun is worse than Reigns. I don't know how you can argue that he's not. He is a worse wrestler, he's clumsier, he's got less of an idea about where to be and when to be there, and he's basically a big goof. But because he's not Roman and he tossed those idiots around: "Yaaaaaay!"

They could call up Lars Sullivan next week, have him do the same thing, and I guarantee that he is as over, if not more over, than Braun within a few months. Because there is nothing intangible about Braun that has led him to the position he is in. This is the sort of talentless big man people used to whinge about back in the day. He's Heidenreich with good booking, or Snitsky pushed as a babyface in a world where he can't punt babies.

Argh, he fucks up running and his fucking shoulder tackle. But yaaaaay -- not Roman. Yaaaaay he did funny corny shit with The Miz. It's staged and fake and everybody is scared of him, and when he's not around everyone asks "Where's B-B-B-B-Braun...?" because everyone is scared of him. Yaaaaaay. These are the fucking dark days, I swear to god.

And if I have to hear about how over he apparently is one more time... Every single Raw or PPV I have checked out he has gotten a mild reaction. Generally cheers. Not an ovation; not a roar from the crowd -- but golf claps with a few nerds standing up and stretching up their arms. It's tepid. I'm sure it is better than most people get these days, but a barely audible "Get these hands!" chant from a couple of hundred neckbeards isn't that fucking over. You could have a random dude go out there and say "I'm Johnny Lovecakes and I hate WWE" and do a wacky dance and it would get a bigger pop. Yes, I know that generally even the people who pay money to go to these things are quieter than they used to be, but I feel that is a self-defeating excuse. If people genuinely cared they would be more engaged.

He's not the worst thing ever, and to whatever fan-base you have let, he's a hero, even if it is a minor one that is never going to draw any money. But it just sucks because the love for him is a symptom of where we are. That people are impressed by a big dude with a grizzly voice and a beard that is presented as comedy and can't run properly and fucks up all the time because he's not officially the top guy...yikes. I just don't understand it. How can people want to see this guy as the champion working in 20-minute matches and cutting long promos about how much he appreciates fans, gay people, women and anti-bullying movements?
