    She can’t wrestle. Prime example of Vince bringing up NXT talent before they were ready.

    It really made no sense. The could have built this after SD 1000. Have Batista jump Vince too, hell Vince is dying to insert himself in feuds. H tells him no last night. Batista goes after HBK. Then maybe after Steph, they arent above that, they just did it with AJ/Joe. Have him show up at takeover like Rollins. Something. Then eventually H gives in. Idk, so weak. Why try to build this in a month? They've had 3. Hell a batista RR spot eliminating H would have been great.

    I would’ve loved HHH to say no... Dave go into the back. Grab and beat up Vince... HHH can’t get there quick enough because of the Gaurdians of the Independents.

    Next week Dave comes out with double the security ask for the match again... HHH tells him no. Later in the show you have Dave backing Steph into a corner just as HHH makes the save.

    Following week he beats down HBK at the performance center. As HHH watches on the screen. And he accepts on the go home show.

    Simple, easy, interesting and they never touch.

    Nice burn and all, but I'm not sure there's anything enhanced on Lana. Go look at her FSU cowgirl pics. Outside of how she does her makeup, she looks the same.

    I like the more serious tone to New Day.

    Uso’s just fire with the promo.

    Randy and AJ with maybe the best promos of each other’s career. I’m hyped. I do like that used Randy hating on the indie guys for the reason of anger.

    There going to fuck up the women’s title match and the Smackdown title match by having both being multiple person matches aren’t they.

    Also the women’s tag being a fatal four way of Natty/Beth vs Nia/Snuka vs IIconis vs Boss/Hug. Please god put it on the pre show or let it be the 30 second surprise

    I’m cool with a gauntlet. Hopefully the crowd is hot.

    Was a little worried they where going to do a gauntlet with Kofi vs Woods vs Big E. If E or Woods lose they are fired type thing.

    Yea that should be a fun match. I am way more into this DB v Kofi angle now than I am the RAW women's title match, and not just because of WWE botching the women's match so much.

    I feel kind of bad for Ali because this was his push before getting injured and for KO because he too deserves a big time Mania match because he has been amazing for so long. But Kofi has absolutely taken the opportunity and ran with it. He has been amazing and I'm really looking forward to this match now

    True, but it's not like Kofi has continued to take Ali's spot.

    Kofi has a decade of goodwill with hardcore fans and the added bonus of New Day being popular with casuals. Ali would have had a WWE Title match at Fastlane and then dropped down the card at Mania.

    But I am sure WWE didn't plan on doing all of this with Kofi either, who is to say the crowd didn't get behind Ali as well after his matches?

    I am not complaining about it, I think it's great that Kofi is getting this shot. He deserves it and I have always been a fan of his. Just pointing out it sucks for Ali is all.

    I don't know why the WWE has to do the impossible hill to climb story line with every baby face. Kofi isn't just the underdog, but now he has to climb impossible odds to get the title. Becky can't just fight Ronda, she has to be crippled and fight Ronda.

    I agree, and while I think it's possible Ali could have gotten a movement behind him, I dont think it would have been big enough to alter Vince's plans for a Bryan vs KO match at Mania. Kofi being a decade-long vet put him over the top.

    I agree that Ali missed out on a big late-winter push, but I think it's evident Vince is still high on him and he'll be a big part of SmackDown this spring. I just dont think he was going to be in the title match at Mania, no matter what happened.

    Yea while li would have got some loud pops it would have been no where near what Kofi is getting.

    Kofi is pretty much universally loved and quite a few people have been wanting him to get a shot/push for awhile. Hell just look how people post every time he has been in a big match like MiTB

    Really wanted him and Cesaro to have title runs.

    At least Cesaro carved out a nice tag career thus far. I feel like Rusev is completely underutilized.

    NXT seems really short on storylines leading up to Mania Takeover.

    They lost the DIY story which would have been huge. no clue what they do with NXT Title.
    Tag titles will just be a result of the Dusty Classic. no real heat there.
    NA Title looks like it's headed to maybe a triple threat? no real build up. maybe one of these three guys gets put in the NXT Title picture with Gargano.
    Women's probably has had the best build up and even that has been kind of cobbled together at the end.

    I'm sure they will still put on a great show, but the build up has been below their standard.
