    Some of you are insufferable.

    KO was the planned opponent for DB at WM but they decided to actually listen to the fans for once and give Kofi the WM match. Sure th3e story with Vince deciding to randomly fuck over Kofi came out of no where and doesn't make a lot of sense but it is going to leave us with a seriously pissed off New Day with a little over a month til WM.

    Give it some more time the New Day angle has a chance to be extremely entertaining and they are clearly going with Kofi/DB at WM because the fans wanted it

    Is Becky legit nursing an injury? If not I hate this angle, basically just having a worse match so she can look more sympathetic

    If there was an easy money storyline for this WM, it was Becky vs Ronda.

    But in typical WWE fashion, they have gotta make things very difficult to enjoy.

    Today got none of them over

    Becky looks weak, cant do it herself
    Ronda almost looks face again, helps super face win and doesnt attack her more than she needs to and leaves heel untouched
    Charlotte continues to look like she doesnt belong in this match and is just an after thought to what should be a 1 v 1 between Ronda and Becky

    This may be the worst booked Mania in modern day history.

    Seriously this is the fucking worst. I’m not surprised Vince has turned over the creative staff and got Brother Love back as co chair.

    But the sad truth to this all is the problem with the product is Vince. Step away you old fuck.

    Becky has lost the majority of her heat. She went from a shit talking gonna fuck anyone up badass. To a hobbled, idiotic, apologist who can’t even sell a fucking injury correct because the crunch goes on the other side. On top of that she lost clean to Asuka at the rumble, gotten beaten down to a pulp on RAW and tonight vs Charlotte was just embarrassing all away around. I honestly have no desire to watch this triple threat. I’m not looking forward to a limping Becky at Mania getting her moment. They killed this program.


    Speaking of killing a program... Kofi storyline is also a fucking abortion. Why did it take so long for his new day members to come out? Then they all get laid out. Your top baby face who’s going to headline Mania with the help of his new day teammates can’t fend off a team who lost to a 8 year old.

    I feel terrible for Ali who got shit on just because. Why even trot him out. He’s ice cold since the injury and every was craving for Kofi. Ali is toast. Welcome to the lower mid card kid

    I watched that ECW special with Heyman, Sandman, Big Show and Shane. UnTold.

    I found it funny that Shane basically had the idea for the WWE network back then and wanted ECW to be streaming site exclusive in its relaunch. And wanted it to work a independent third brand. But Vince got a hold of the project and pushed Shane out and it became a total fucking fail.

    And here were are what nearly 15 years later and HHH has NXT... Shane must really hate his dad deep down.

    I felt bad for the crowd and everyone in that match. The crowd was rightfully pissed the fuck off and really the match will just be remembered for WE WANT KOFI

    Everything is overbooked and written into total garbage because they seem to be trying to pop the ratings before the new TV deals. The show is shit when Vince rewrites the entire thing and it seems like he's doing it a lot while showing up hours late for the writers meetings.

    And WM should be a 2 day event. Getting too long and exhausting for one day.

    Their roster is too big to accomplish this, just throw them into the battle royals.

    I think part of it is the wrestlers get paid per appearance so being on the WM is very lucrative for those that make it on.

    Its amazing that Rey still does what he does at his age. Thought that match was really fun. Joe is great, Rey is great, Almas is great, Truth isn't a great wrestler but he can be very entertaining.

    First time I've seen Ricochet botch the 630 and he about killed Wilder.

    Holy shit that bump Ali took off the top rope on to the barricade. Can we please get an Ali vs Ricochet match? Ali 3rd best high flyer in wrestling now? Ricochet, Osprey, Ali? The finishing sequence of this match was amazing.

    The booking was so easy. For 2 months have Becky destroy everyone on Smackdown, Ronda destroy everyone on RAW and push it as a clash of the titans at Mania. Keep Ronda and Becky away from each other, just talk shit on their own shows, maybe have one big bust up at a contract signing or something and then the match. The Man persona doesn't work if you're the underdog, thats not how any of this works.

    Agree with all of this.

    One of the benefits of the brand split is the novelty of seeing a Raw vs SmackDown matchup. Here they had one fall right into their laps, a SmackDown challenger and a Raw champion. And they turned it into a convoluted mess.

    I think it is hilarious the WWE saw the rating problems and decided to fix it by "firing" Paige and Corbin to fix the problem and thought more McMahon's was the solution.

    The McMahon's need to go away, for an extended period of time. They are ruining everything great this that could of happened this year.

    Matches and feuds that have gotten over on their own recently

    Becky v. Ronda - Ruined by Stephanie and Vince inserting themselves and in turn inserting Charlotte into the feud.

    Kofi getting over - Appears to be getting derailed by Vince inserting himself into the story. I wouldn't say this is ruined yet, but Vince has muddied this story a ton

    Daniel Bryan v The Miz - Instead of long term booking this, they decide to break them apart and have Miz feud with Shane McMahon.

    And now Triple H is inserting himself into a major Wrestlemania match with a returning Batista.

    They need to go behind the scenes and stay there for a while.

    To be fair, Batista has stated numerous times in interviews over the years that he would only return for a retirement match at Wrestlemania vs Triple H.

    And I'd say the only thing that's been "ruined" so far is Becky's heat, and she's still pretty hot.
