  1. Sucks for Ambrose. Pretty sure its the first time he's having to spend time out due to an injury. I hope he will be back for Wrestlemania at least, would be a shame for him to miss out.
  2. Someone want to let me know how to attach a tweet to my posts for future reference, please?

      Weird, I'm sure I've tried that but it just hasn't shown the tweet... I'll try again, cheers.

      Alright, I'll try again but we will see, cheers

  3. Lashley was genuinely my favourite wrestler, for whatever reason, back when he was in WWE and he has improved a lot both in ring and he's good enough on the mic now. I'm not sure if they'd do it, but I could definitely picture him with one of the main titles. I've always wanted to see him return to WWE, even if its just for a year or two. As for EC3, he is a star and honestly, though he hasn't kept as hot/relevant as Cody/McIntyre since they left WWE, he was a guy who left WWE and really made it outside of the WWE far bigger and better than anyone expected, so he could have a decent run with WWE as they seem to respect that in people. I wouldn't mind if he came straight to the main roster but I'd love for him to come to NXT first. I can't remember where but someone had an idea of him leading a stable with Moss/Sabotelli and I get why people would think its a waste but their characters actually work very well together, it could be good.
  4. I'm one of the people who have been a fan of Sheamus the entire time, though I will say his run with Cesaro has probably been my favourite version of him. Nevertheless, an injury like this that has ended careers of other big stars is not something I'd wish on anyone, whether I like them or not. It's a real shame and I hope he can get the most out of his run before he has to call it but I have to assume he wont be around for too much longer with an injury like this, but I'm sure he'll know when to stop. Could be a post wrestlemania retirement even, though I wouldn't be surprised to see him continue for longer. Will be interesting to see what happens with Cesaro too.
  5. I'm not familiar with Eddie Dennis, he isn't one of the British guys I hear of, any good? Dunne is going to beat Connors but I understand theres a video of Connors cutting a really good promo on Dunne. It'd be nice to see him get a push when WWE inevitably do something with the UK guys. He looks a heel to me, not a rat-faced one like Dunne, but he looks the part still, has potential. Has Matt Cross wrestled in Progress before? I'd like to see how he mixes with British guys.
  6. I actually really like it, gonna use the top one. Cheers man!
  7. If anyone is interested in UFC but didn't watch last night's fights... try and take the time to watch the Alex Oliveira Vs. Yancy Medeiros and Eddie Alvarez Vs. Justin Gaethje fights, you will enjoy them without a doubt.
  8. They are, all 3 of them have been involved in tag matches. It was announced just after they won the belts that they were free birding.
  9. Tapology.com I stayed awake to watch this card last night, though I didn't get to watch the main and co-main. Nicco Montano winning is awesome. I like Modafferi but Montano has a sort of underdog vibe, so people will likely root for her to do well. Problem is, some like Valentina Shevchenko, Joanna Jedrzrejczyk, Paige VanZant will likely move to Flyweight and get the title shot, and I'd likely pick any of them to beat Montano. O'Malley is a good fighter and prospect. I'm not a fan of his personality but its that personality that will likely take him further in MMA then anything. Meerschaert's liver kick to finish Spicely was brutal. Hard body shots like those always make me feel uncomfortable. I felt that they judges were wrong with the Bennett/Fabian fight. Bennett should have won. Fabian won the first, especially after her last second knockdown. Fabian got a point deducted in the 2nd and then Bennett controlled her against the fence, so that should have been a 10-8 round. For me, the 3rd round was the closest but Bennett also won that in my opinion. She got a late knockdown and finished on top, in control. Felt like Bennett should have been given the decision. Johns' win was perhaps the most impressive. Soto is as legit as anyone in the bantamweight division with his Jiu-Jitsu but Johns went in and got a very quick win over him. His composure to roll Soto and take his leg was fantastic. Was a shock win but he has an interesting personality too. Looking forward to seeing Johns fight again. Was a good card overall tbh.
  10. I get what you're saying, but a face doesn't necessarily have to act full on face. If they just keep him as he is, book him better, don't have him being heel towards the fans, and just attack heels instead of faces, then he could easily keep his current persona in my opinion. Like I say, at this point they may as well try it because everything else they do with him fails, they may as well give him a chance as a face, he doesn't need to pander to the crowd or anything, just fight the heels instead of the faces.
  11. I would also like to see Rusev as a face. Feels like his personality suits a face turn so much, especially when he's been goofy. Things haven't worked out as a heel so hopefully they turn him. I agree with BP about Liv, though obviously I imagine it'd be a while yet. To be honest, I'd like it if she does the whole 'we've gone too far as heels' face turn, rebelling against her group, then they just replace her with another debuting woman. It could be a could machine to bring up heel women whenever they have them ready, so the group itself is always a constant. If they don't do it with them, I do personally like the idea of a faction like that. Last one I can think of is Bray Wyatt. I have no idea if he would work as a face but at this point, just do it and see if it helps him at all. I remember before he got injured he was a face for like an episode and the fans loved it.
  12. I still think Ryder would have been the better option as a heel, haha. Its not that I think Mojo will do a bad job as a heel, I just think his character works better as a face.
  13. Considering who in WWE would qualify for the 205 Live division but isn't currently in the show, or looking at people from NXT or even outside of the WWE, who do you guys think would benefit the division the most? Be realistic, I very much doubt Finn Balor is going to turn up on 205 live, so no one that is clearly above the show. For me, I think Chad Gable could do a great job on the show. He is a pretty small guy and I am pretty sure he'd qualify for the division, or at least they can pass him off as 205lbs. He has plenty of personality and charisma and is, in my opinion, fantastic in the ring. For some time now, I have wanted to see him move to Raw and to the 205 live division, though I am interested now to see if they can do something with him and Benjamin. He obviously isn't Amore on the mic, but he is good, and I think he provides enough quality in all aspects that he could be a cruiserweight star.
  14. The best thing about a 15-20 minute match with Styles or Balor is that you know those 2 would tell such a good story in the ring facing Strowman, and Strowman has already proven he can carry his end up in ring story telling, so on paper it should be amazing. Obviously, theres always the chance that he just has bad chemistry with them, but I am pretty confident he'd have great matches with the people you mentioned. I just want him to face people who are going to sell well for him, even Ziggler, if he was a bit less cartoonish. Yeah, I think stables and managers are the 2 things I have missed the most in wrestling, but stables are seemingly making a comeback in NXT and even on the main roster. Strowman will likely improve on the mic, even though he is weak now he is still better then when he first started speaking... plus he is better at sounding a bit more intimidating then before too. I'd love to see a Paul Heyman manage him when he is done with Brock, or even Paul Ellering if he moves up to the main with the Authors of Pain.
  15. It definitely helps him that he has very, very good chemistry with Reigns too (at least in my opinion) since Reigns is obviously the guy WWE want to push as 'The guy', so they have a built in rivalry full of chemistry if they push Braun alongside him. Its honestly crazy to me how fast he has improved in the last couple of years, baring in mind he skipped NXT TV and it was clear as day how green he was initially. I'll be interested to see him have a proper match with someone smaller, say Hardy or Styles, and see how he meshes with them. But yeah, I agree, he has so much potential and the fans love him, he has everything going for him. Plus, he comes out with the weirdest trash talk that, from anyone else, I would normally find cheesy or weird but for some reason, him saying it makes it better.
  16. Yeah, I always fine it hard to figure out how much people used to wrestle back then, as many wrestlers claim they'd have matches every day, multiple times a day even. Though I guess the idea with Andre was that he was an attraction, so he probably didn't wrestle as often as the smaller guys. It is crazy to see how long they've all lasted but I guess it is due to the style they work. Once you get past the heart problems Andre/Big Show had because of their size, it does seem healthier to big a 'monster' who can just bully their way around and can work on a limited moveset without much danger, as oppose to the smaller guys, especially now, who fly around and put their bodies under ridiculous stress. Looking at it that way, I guess its no surprise why the bigger guys can retire much older than people like Bryan, Edge etc who have to retire early. Plus, guys their size are few and far between, especially talented ones, so I guess that benefits their longevity too. Heres hoping Braun continues as he is and manages a decently lengthy career, considering he started wrestling a bit late.
  17. To be fair to Andre, he did compete for like 20-25 years, and then another 5-10 on more sporadic appearances, but the amount Taker has wrestled, and how he's been a top star for the biggest company for as long as he has, probably puts in him top, like you say.
  18. I agree that his uniqueness is what made him special etc, but if you look at how he was booked early in his career, he was a dominant monster. Obviously he changed throughout the years and became a better wrestler, not having to rely on his size and monster abilities as much but I don't know. If Kane is classed as a 'monster' then Taker has to be too, in my opinion.
  19. I don't see how the argument about him still being able to wrestle today if he didn't have that match stands tbh... Also, for Bryan and his fans, theres a big difference between just going on to have a shot at another PPV, and then having it at Wrestlemania... It being at WM created one of the greatest feel good moments in WWE history. It's like saying, 'Whats CM Punk complaining about that he never got to headline Wrestlemania? He headlined plenty of other PPVs' Batista coming back, winning the Rumble and then winning the title against ORton at Wrestlemania would have been the definition of forced. The Daniel Bryan storyline felt natural and actually felt like WWE listened to their fans.
  20. Undertaker is literally an 'undead zombie' or whatever you want to call him though... is that not a monster? In wrestling terms, I'd say that makes him a monster?
  21. Man, I just saw you say in chat that this is a stupid topic but I don't understand how you can consider Kane a monster and not Undertaker, and then why you would consider Kane a better monster than Andre/Big Show? Again, not trying to be confrontational, I'd just like to know?
  22. What? The Bryan story was literally the opposite of forced. If it went on to just be Batista Vs. Orton at Wrestlemania, that was forced. That was why everyone opposed it. Bryan, however, was the hottest thing in Wrestling at that moment and the fans were behind him. The fans, and Bryan, were heard and WWE changed their plans as a result. It resulted in Bryan having one of the best career nights of anyone in history and showed that WWE were willing to listen to the fans, rather than force their own plans. I respect your opinion, I just don't understand the thought process behind it at all. Sorry if that comes across as more confrontational than intended.
  23. Just to clarify, I also would likely agree that the rivalry between Austin and McMahon is the greatest of all time but for me, I find it important to note that not all of it was perfect. One of those things that isn't perfect for me is them both allying, as Austin's whole character was always anti-authority and I don't think it was necessary to change that, even for a moment. Outside of that though, I'd also say Austin/McMahon for the longevity and what it did for the company. It also created both the best tweener and arguably best heel of all time in Austin and McMahon, respectively, and also allowed for the company to build other stars within their feud.
  24. Though I agree with Prince that Mark Henry's hall of pain run was one of the better Monster storylines in history, I don't think you could consider Mark Henry the greatest Monster. For me, there are 3 options for this in my opinion. The first two are Andre and Big Show, and I'd personally say that Andre beats Big Show here. The third option depends on what you class as a monster. On Table for 3 they have argued that The Undertaker can be classed as a monster, and I can understand that argument. He isn't as tall as the other 2 but his character, and the fact that he was still very big, could be argued as him being a monster. If Undertaker counts, I say him, if not then Andre. People like Mark Henry, Kane, Diesel etc are honorary mentions.
