  1. We are live on the Carnage after King of the Ring where Arius became World Champion, Ropati won the King of the Ring tournament, and more. It was announced that the North American Championship will be returning with a new champion being decided in a fatal fourway at Summerslam. Before that, qualifiers will be held to decide which four men will be in that championship bout, with Buddy Ace being set to face off against Raven in his qualifying match. These two men have crossed paths earlier in the year and a singles match between them is definitely an interesting one. Buddy Ace wastes no time coming out here, heading straight to the timekeeper's area for a microphone as he looks to talk about this big match. “Already, I have been given my first test as a member of the Death Riders, a qualifying match for a shot at the North American Championship. In the past I’ve had my share of chances at it but that belt continued to elude me each time. I really thought that with Flynn’s victory at Backlash we would never see the North American Championship again but I am glad I was wrong because winning that championship is a goal I feel the urge to fulfill. That triple threat at BPZMania especially fueled me, I mean Joh entering last second completely threw things off for me. I truly thought I could have won if it was a singles match and defeating KENJI at Last Resort only reinforced that belief for me. I don’t want to be viewed as being a step below anymore, I have to prove that I am a champion calibre competitor by earning my way into one more title match.” “In my mind it’s actually incredibly appropriate that my opponent for this qualifying match would be Raven. Raven is a man that I have absolutely wanted to go one on one with for a couple of reasons. Upon his return to BPZ after his little hiatus, he attacked an already injured Isaiah Carter so in a way this could be seen as a measure of revenge. As much as I want to get you back for that, let’s talk about this little hiatus real quick. Back at Saint Valentine’s Day Massacre I won the United States Championship from Raven, a moment I’ll be forever proud of. What Raven said after that match stuck with me. According to Raven I was disrespecting him, insulting him when I didn’t have the proper amount of self confidence he deemed I should have. It was kind of inspiring to hear an opponent talk about me the way he did and I have been putting my all into showing my talent to the world. Now my problem here is that he not one month later takes my championship away at BPZMania to become the first three time United States Champion only to immediately disappear with it over some bruised ego crap. Let me tell you, that was true disrespect right there. I almost took it personal, I mean my reign was crapped on and flushed away for nothing.” “Now it seems I may have walked right into something nasty between the Death Riders and FD-Gun but I can assure you that this match is not Death Riders versus FD-Gun, it’s Buddy Ace vs Raven. It’s two guys who have the desire to be stars, to be champions, to be the leaders of this company. We got a score to settle but more importantly we got an opportunity to fulfill those desires and neither of us is gonna give that up. Question is, who wants it more? I guess we won’t know that until the night of but I am certainly planning to kick the ever loving shit out of Raven when we are face to face that night.” With that Buddy Ace stomps to the back having said what he wanted and these upcoming qualifying matches are sure to be incredible.
  2. Eddie Kingston signs with AEW. This one was a pleasant surprise to see yesterday. Eddie Kingston seriously is one of the most impressive promos today and he is absolutely the kind of guy AEW should have been searching for from the start rather than some of the clowns they have signed. Eddie has that grit to him where everything just feels real with him. It's cool to see that he's finally getting a big stage run because the stuff I've seen (admittedly isn't that much, mostly ROH and the NWA appearances) has been great. Especially considering he said he was likely going to retire last year, good thing he hadn't yet because the grind paid off.
  3. I feel like on paper this card looks good but I think overall this episode annoyed me. Like I didn't enjoy that 5 man tag match between Inner Circle and the five friends, it was just boring to me. Also, I am done with Jericho vs Cassidy at this point. Like the fact they had a 20 minute match, practically killed any further interest in anything between these two guys but they are still feuding and in addition to a rematch they are gonna have a debate?? No desire for either of those whatsoever but if Jericho wants to waste his time with Cassidy, go for it. I'm glad Warhorse got his chance on Dynamite and I hope that the exposure has garnered more fans for him. I would say this appearance and the match are a definite positive for me. Now the post match stuff, that actually irritated me a lot. Silver and Reynolds beat down Cody and Warhorse until out comes Matt Cardona to make the save. If this was anyone else's debut it would still annoy me but add to the fact that I'm a big fan of Matt and it's even worse. This was just such an underwhelming debut for the guy that I've probably been the most excited to see (maybe behind Heath) pop up outside of the WWE, and it was just a mediocre save made. I feel like there surely could have been other ways to make his debut actually mean something but that's the best we got. Seriously that was just such a MEH introduction to the company, could have at least had a few more of the sex dungeon boys out there for him to toss around. I just wanna say I am loving Ricky Starks, so glad they put him under Taz even if he doesn't need a manager himself as far as talking goes so he can get this bigger matches for being associated with Taz and Cage. Anyways, good enough match but I am actually really annoyed that Darby Allin is getting a World Championship match. AEW has not even tried to make their own rankings credible at any point and I Darby just didn't earn it. I know they've crapped on it so much I shouldn't care any more but man what happened to the sports like presentation and blah blah? Also, like I've said about AEW just wanted to throw together big matches with no rhyme or reason, this surely could be considered another example. This is Darby's second World Championship match and second match against Moxley in what I feel is a relatively short time, I don't know, maybe I'm just crazy. I really just don't feel like there is any need for this match to be taking place. We now know officially that FTR have signed a multi year contract with AEW so hopefully they can teach these idiots how a tag team match is supposed to go. I also haven't really been into the early booking of them but all the teases and such have me excited for their potential in the company. Would love for my favorite tag team and wrestler to make a trio like been teased but anyways, multi tag match with FTR yet again teaming with Buckseses tho. I also got to give huge props to MJF for that incredible promo, definitely hoping we can get a full on Moxley vs MJF program maybe even for All Out or something. Also, Deadly Draw as a concept is something I could get behind because I love the Battle Bowl but wow was I pissed to see FORMELY KNOWN AS CAMERON is in it! All the talented women that they have passed up on snagging for themselves and instead that spot goes to a subpar women's wrestler who hasn't even been active for 4 years. Like imagine if AEW had taken Mercedes Martinez instead of NXT, but nah, not willingly to build a proper division up. Honestly it's fine, I probably won't watch any of it because how poor I suspect it might be.
  4. It’s a short time before Carnage as we see an interviewer approach Buddy Ace in the parking lot of the arena. Interviewer: “Buddy Ace, we’ve seen now that you have officially joined the Death Riders. What exactly drove this decision?” “Since the start of the brand split I’ve honestly just been spinning my wheels. Given the fact that I was drafted so early there was a certain standard that I was being held to and I have completely failed in proving my worth. Now granted I was expecting to be spending most of my time in the tag team division but as you know Isaiah was unfortunately taken out of action for an indefinite amount of time. That should have been a prime chance for me to establish myself as being a worthy partner who could stand side by side with a 2 time World Champion and if anything I’ve made myself look unqualified. So that’s when Bailey comes to me and I’m given a pretty appealing offer from the GOAT. Bailey, I can tell that he isn’t just telling me words that I would find appealing, he really does think there is something more to me than I’ve ever managed to show. It feels good to have someone believe in you like that and I would say in general Bailey is a great judge of talent. I’ve wanted to work with him in the past but Bailey and I had never a fair chance to do business with the premature death of the hWo. Bailey being the legend he obviously knows how to be successful and I needed a shakeup big time so I felt it was the right choice. Granted, I don’t one hundred percent agree with the way Bailey and the Death Riders go about things however you don’t need to see eye to eye on every little thing to do business.” “What does this mean for Aces High, is it over then?” “At this point I’m not really sure. There isn’t an ETA for when Isaiah will be back in action but I can’t wait forever. Now we never actually got a shot to be the tag team I know we can be so I’ll say this, if Isaiah is still willingly down the line, I would love to take over the tag division as Aces High. Until then I am going to just focus on myself.” “One last thing, with the reintroduction of the North American Championship, you’ll be facing Raven for a chance to compete for the title. I was hoping to get your thoughts on this match up.” “If you watch the show tonight then you’ll know my thoughts,” Buddy says before walking away.
  5. I started watching Breaking Bad recently and I'm deep into Season 3 now. I gotta say, I am loving the show a ton. I can't believe it has taken me so long to getting around to watching this show but I'm kinda glad I saved something so good. The show is well thought out/detailed which gets you really immersed in the story. The quality of the show so far that I've watched in my opinion has been consistently great and there's never a boring episode. After I finish this I definitely plan on watching Better Call Saul and the El Camino movie.
  6. I'm not going to lie, I was pretty annoyed that Keith Lee vacated the North American Championship. I felt like there were better ways to go about this than to do this big Double Champion match and then he only held both titles for like 2 weeks, feels like a load blown early. The whole Keith Lee wants to give other guys opportunities thing is a pretty good way to go about the vacating though so I like the way that was handled. So far the ladder match looks cool, with Bronson Reed being the first guy to receive one of those special opportunities. The next three looks good as well as it's Lumis, Balor, and Thatcher and that sounds incredible. I'm not sure who else is gonna end up in the match but I would love for a Thatcher run with the title because he's been great on NXT this year, but I don't know if they quite want to push him that way yet. Either way it'll be a good match and I'm hoping the winner makes the best of their run.
  7. Very excited for this match. When Warhorse started putting out those tweets and promos, I really didn't expect it would actually lead to him getting a shot. I think it's great that Cody is using the open challenge to give people opportunities. A lot of people are missing the point and saying Cody is just burying everyone to make himself look better (when he's making himself look worse if he's having competitive matches with the lower tier guys lol) but it's to give some shine to guys who don't normally get it. Eddie Kingston's promo/match was probably the best of the TNT Championship segments and it gave him more exposure. Warhorse seems to be a guy that is still undiscovered by the wrestling community overall who would benefit greatly from getting this television time. He's a cool guy as this heavy metal wrestler with a unique presentation to his character in the way he does his promos and such. Sidenote, Warhorse has been my morning alarm for the past 9 months.

    On Me

    Buddy Ace stares deep into the bottom of the glass as if he was looking off far into the distance without saying a word before finishing off the last of his drink. Bailey puts some dollars on the counter and the bartender refills Buddy’s glass. “Buddy Ace, Death Rider...doesn’t sound so bad. I’ve been in a bit of a rut waiting around for the past couple months. You know what, you’ve got yourself a deal. I need a bit of a shakeup to kick start things right now. Just know I’m still gonna be doing things my way no matter what. Though I'm sure you already know what you're getting yourself into with me. Well, thanks for the drink, man.” Buddy Ace starts chugging as he’s officially joined the Death Riders.

    Punchline

    Buddy Ace is shown sitting on a stool backstage, ready to address his upcoming match against Prince. The two men had an altercation on the last Carnage where Buddy Ace provoked Prince into a brawl by mocking his standing in the company today. Buddy shakes his head and sighs before speaking. “Man what a disaster...Prince took my words completely the wrong way. I was simply trying to help him but instead of accepting my help he decided to pitch a fit and now I’ve gotta fight the poor guy. Problem is I don’t quite think Prince is at 100 percent mentally. I mean you saw the way he reacted to the truth and I’m afraid that it’s unfair for me to take advantage of him like this. He may have asked for it but someone in the back should have done the right thing and said no given the state he’s in. But fine, I’m not one to back away from a fight. On the bright side, I have wanted this match for a long time, because I have always wanted my chance to test myself and Prince. To see whether Prince can live up to the hype and if I can hang with him if he really is that good.” “Honestly I did believe what I was trying to tell Prince but I don’t think anyone is gonna be able to get through to him. Prince seems to think that Karico is still his best friend in the world despite the fact that those two have another nothing to do with one another in ages. Maybe Prince thinks that he owes Karico something for being there early in his career and giving him an opportunity but those days are long gone. He’s still hung up on the past and it’s just not healthy at all. When you have your own life, your own job here in the present you just gotta focus on yourself. Prince isn’t Sherlock Holmes, he’s just one professional wrestler, what can he do alone that law enforcement agencies can’t? Nothing, he’s just wasting his own time and it’s hurting him. It’s keeping him from being at 100 percent.” “Prince can be at the top of this company if he so chooses. He has all the charisma and in ring skill that rivals the best of the best. Career projections for Prince are damn high for a reason, he should be contending for a World Championship or something right now. If he wants to continue to throw all that potential away, so be it, I’ll fill that spot then because I have the ambition that Prince clearly has lost, if he ever even had it. I don’t wanna be like that, I don’t wanna spend the coming years of my career bumming away and being the punchline of everyone’s jokes. Hopefully I can knock some sense into Prince by beating him. I have nothing to hold me back and that’s exactly why it’s gonna be me who wins.”
  10. Let me start with that opening match, Cody vs Sonny Kiss for the TNT Championship. I hated it. First off, Cody was completely out of character in this match. It's one thing to tease a heel turn, the word tease implying there's a bit of subtlety to it, but he's blatantly doing shit like push ups during the match. Cody had this competitive match against someone who has zero singles wins this year, who is basically a jobber, when Cody is arguably the biggest baby face of the company. This one of the biggest problems with the company as a whole and it's been a problem since the start. Everyone has long, competitive matches with each other which means no one is getting over! Remember when Jungle Boy lasting ten minutes with Chris Jericho was a major achievement? That was before Orange Cassidy went damn near 20 minutes with Jericho. These undercard guys aren't getting over, the top guys are getting made to look just as bad as the undercard guys. Then after the match they fucking hugged, after Cody did all this heel shit. It's embarrassing and hard to take serious. Now I wanna say something about Jon Moxley vs Brian Cage. I like the towel finish, however...as good as the match was I don't think this should have taken place. Another problem AEW has constantly had is rushing stories and matches because they think doing so is making the biggest, most awesome shows possible but it isn't. Now another new talent loses a major match early in (Cage, Hager, Lee, Archer) and the next time these guys face won't be as big as the first time could have been if there was more build. Cage shouldn't have debuted in winning a world title shot, he should have just had a slow burn tear through the roster similar to his TNA run because it's just better! Stop throwing your brand new action figures together, Khan. I think they honeymoon phase with AEW is waning for me.
  11. Prince turns to see Buddy Ace walking up to him. “It’s an awful thing, this Karico business. BPZ is like a big family so even if I didn’t know the guy personally I can’t help but feel torn up about one of us being in trouble like this. I can’t even begin to imagine how you feel, considering what Karico means to you. Clearly it’s taking its toll but that’s why I’m here. I’ve had a bit of free time as of late and decided that I would look into this matter myself. Well now I think I’ve come upon some information that could be of some help to you. Just come out to the ring with me, I have something that I need to show you.” Prince looks skeptical but if there’s even a modicum of truth to Buddy Ace’s words then he’s gotta listen. Any morsel of information is important at this point. Buddy Ace leads Prince out to the ring, the fans confused to see these two together unannounced. Buddy Ace gets hold of a microphone and starts an explanation. “I’m sorry to interrupt the show like this ladies and gentlemen but this is an urgent matter. As I’m sure you all know, the former leader of the Karico Brand, Karico, has been abducted. Prince here was a dear friend of his and I have brought Prince out here tonight to assist him by presenting what I believe is crucial information. Now I had them queue something up for me to play on the titantron, if they could go ahead and roll that now please.” The interview that Prince just had with Josh Trenton appears on the screen. Prince looks at Buddy Ace, unsure of where this is going but sure as hell annoyed. “You’re wondering what the point of that was, right? Here’s the deal Prince, I do want to help you, but not to find Karico. I want to help you get out of this rut. It’s easy to see in that talk with Mr. Trenton, in your irrational behavior recently, that Karico’s weighing heavy on your mind to the point that you are blowing it right now. You need to let the authorities do their jobs while you do yours here in the ring. Why do you even care about what’s happened to Karico? How long has it been since you’ve seen him? He hasn’t been a part of your life in ages. Karico left you here alone so kidnapped or not it shouldn’t affect you. Do you think that if it were you that went missing, that Karico would even give a second thought to it after finding out? No, he wouldn’t because he doesn’t care about you so stop caring about him.” “Prince, for as long as I have been here, you have been a joke. Anytime your name is brought up the response is a laugh. It’s a damn shame but it’s the truth and you have nobody to blame but yourself. You’ve half assed things for far too long. Let me take you back to the 2018 draft. It was an exciting time as the landscape of the company was going to be shaken up and we would get to watch the draft live as it unfolded. I saw the first pick and instantly all my excitement drained from me. It seriously killed my mood when I saw that this absolute joke Prince was picked first overall. What merited this pick? According to the GM it was potential. I went second and I was happy about that but I could never understand why Prince over me? Well I’ve gotten the chance to see over time glimpses over time and frankly it pisses me off even more. I know you could be great but you aren’t. I’d say neither of us did stellar after being first round picks but here in the present I’m on the right path in that so called journey and you aren't. The amount of effort you are putting into this simply isn’t gonna cut it and that’s why you keep failing. I have your best interests at heart, I really do feel for you, man. If you wanna stop being the Carnage Clown, you need to--” Buddy Ace is cut off by a right hand from Prince as he has heard enough of the disrespect towards himself and his friend. Prince gets in a few more good shots before Buddy Ace desperately shoves him off. Prince charges him again and the two superstars brawl in the ring for a short bit until staff runs down to the ring and pulls them apart. Prince looks absolutely livid as staff tries to escort the two away from one another.

  13. Why does that guy think he posted a gotcha moment? Orton in 2017 was bland as hell and in terms of his reign it didn't help he took the belt away from Bray Wyatt who had just won the belt and seemed to finally be getting the push fans wanted only to lose it to Jinder within a month. 3 years later Orton is arguably WWE MVP this year so far and McIntyre vs Orton is a mega match at this point for them. I liked the feud with Kofi as things were coming full circle and now Orton is RAW's top heel so it makes sense. I'm sure they could find a way to tie this all into the Edge feud as well.
  14. Who will win Block A?: Tatsumi Fujinami Who will come Runner Up in Block A?: Akira Maeda Who will Win Block B?: Antonio Inoki Who will come Runner Up in Block B: Dick Murdoch Who will win the ENTIRE IWGP Series/Win the IWGP Heavyweight Championship?: Tastumi Fujinami
  15. Not sure why people thought Orange Cassidy would win or wanted him to win. He was made to looking absolutely fantastic against the best in the company, that's enough for him. This helps build OC which OC needs a lot more of if he's ever gonna beat CHRIS JERICHO. Orange Cassidy is a funny character but a guy who stops in the middle of having the upperhand to do those shin kicks shouldn't be beating anyone. I hope they can develop his character but honestly I don't know if there's even room for that. To me he's just a sort of fun novelty and not really the star people think he could be. Can't wait to see what Jericho does next because he was hilarious working with Cassidy.
  16. I don't get why AEW has been teasing a problems between MJF and Wardlow. They haven't even been together long enough for the split to matter. If they split anytime soon I will genuinely be angry at them for rushing things AGAIN. It's great AEW wants to have big matches and angles but it doesn't work if you just doing everything as fast as you can. Time and time again they keep doing things earlier then they should. I thought MJF and Wardlow were gonna win and I don't get why they didn't but whatever. It was a decent match at least.
  17. Sorry to be a buzzkill but I hate that this match is even happening. MVP should be sticking to the manager role to get other guys over. I was actually kinda pissed they had MVP win his first singles match in a decade by beating the United States Champion in a non title match! Like god damn WWE, why do the champs lose non title matches so often, you didn't even have to set this match up that way. I feel like WWE over the past 4 years has teased doing something with Crews over and over just to abandon it for no reason. Why not try to make a new star, especially during these strange times for wrestling. If they actually invested a little bit into Apollo they could make both him and this reign actually mean something. I won't even say this match is to build Crews because he shouldn't have lost that previous match if you're tryna build him. Hopefully Crews retains and WWE doesn't get scared of using Apollo Crews cause I wanna see him succeed.
  18. This has got to be one of the dumbest stipulations I have ever heard of. You win by taking someone's eye out of their head?? That's just completely disinteresting to me because it's one thing to do blinding angles but it's another thing to have a match based around the idea of permanently maiming someone in a gruesome way like this, as if it's believable that this would be allowed. I'm afraid this match is gonna flop because of them having this weird stipulation and the finish will probably be some hokey crap. Coulda just let them hit each other with kendo sticks and I wouldn't complain.
  19. I think Impact has done a pretty good job in recent times to rebuild the brand and that it deserves one of these as well. I'm not sure how many people still keep up with Impact but with Slammiversary coming up it's the perfect time to get back into it.

  20. Bobby Lashley in the Extreme Elimination Chamber. As much as I like the guy he was not a fit for ECW and McMahon should have allowed Heyman's choice Punk to lead the brand. There wasn't really interest in Big Show and Bobby Lashley fighting over the ECW Championship as compared to a Punk or RVD. They had plenty of the old ECW guys and some new rising stars to lead that all made more sense for the brand.

  25. King Of The Ring 2014 This King of the Ring tournament returning in 2014 would be interesting given all the talent around as well as recent developments with The Shield splitting or Daniel Bryan being out with injury making it the perfect time for guys to reach for the brass ring. Originally I was going to do a 32 man tournament but I felt that overcomplicated the booking I was going for. The Authority storyline was going strong now so Seth gets a relatively easy outting in the first round while his former stablemates Roman and Dean are forced to face each other right off the bat, with either the US or IC Champion awaiting them in the second round. First Round: Seth Rollins VS R-Truth With The Authority being in charge, Seth Rollins is given a relatively easy opponent to start things off, basically a free win for Rollins against R-Truth. Adam Rose vs Sin Cara Adam Rose had just debuted after Mania and like usual was getting a newcomer push, feuding with and beating guys like Damien Sandow and Jack Swagger. Sin Cara was a total jobber so he does the job to the new guy. Dolph Ziggler vs Bo Dallas Bo Dallas was called up and went on that winning streak which ultimately was ended by R-Truth which is pretty anticlimatic. Bo Dallas could take place in the King of the Ring and I thought about having him go farther but other guys in the tournament including Ziggler were in the midst of bigger pushes. I think it means a little more to lose here than in a random television match. Dolph is on his way to winning the Intercontinental Championship and is a popular babyface so he should go to the Quarter Finals. Rob Van Dam vs Cesaro This year really should have been a big one for Cesaro after winning the inaugural Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal. Unfortunately we know that despite being incredibly over, they never went in with him, though they did reluctantly give him some chances at times.. Rob Van Dam is in here to put over the lower talent in the first round. Rusev vs Chris Jericho Chris Jericho is another good veteran talent to participate and I think this is a good first round match. Rusev was the undefeated monster and the two could work well together. Chris Jericho was in a feud with Bray Wyatt so maybe a distraction or something can cost Jericho to play into the feud. Jack Swagger vs Alberto Del Rio Two former rivals face off against one another in the first round of the King of the Ring. Unfortunately for Jack Swagger the split from Cesaro meant he would do a lot of jobbing to guys like Adam Rose and such so despite being a former world champion he wasn’t at his most credible at the time. Jack Swagger had turned face in a typical patriot feud versus Rusev so Alberto Del Rio wins here because I don’t want the rivals against each other in the tournament. The Miz vs Sheamus The US Champion Sheamus is pit against the IC Champion The Miz in the first round so that a member of The Shield will be forced to face a champion in the next round. To avoid a face versus face match next round I’d have The Miz get past Sheamus with his cheating ways. Dean Ambrose vs Roman Reigns The biggest match of the first round is undoubtedly the forced clash between Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose. The winner of this match was a tough choice but Roman was instantly getting a strong push after The Shield ended, getting a couple WWE Championship matches and then going into a feud with Randy Orton while Dean Ambrose would be on the losing side of an extensive feud with Seth Rollins over the coming months. This would be a hot final match of the first round. Quarterfinals: Seth Rollins vs Adam Rose Another seemingly easy match for Seth Rollins as his quarter final opponent was set up to always be one of the lower tier guys. Dolph Ziggler vs Cesaro Originally I had thought I would take Cesaro farther than this because of his abilities to have great matches but really his current booking doesn’t justify that, plus Ziggler himself is pretty good. Dolph is getting on a good way before his upcoming championship win. Rusev vs Alberto Del Rio Rusev gets another victory over a face here to continue his undefeated streak, this time getting a nice, clean tap out. The Miz vs Roman Reigns Roman Reigns manages to knock off a particularly tricky opponent in the IC Champion The Miz. Miz and Reigns have had some good matches so I think this would be no different as it’s a classic dynamic with the slimy heel and tough face. Semifinals: Seth Rollins vs Dolph Ziggler This would be Seth’s first real challenge so far in the tournament as he faces a credible competitor. Dolph Ziggler is a great face opponent for Seth and is sort of like foreshadowing for later in the year with Dolph opposing the Authority. Rusev vs Roman Reigns Rusev was still unpinned and unsubmitted to this point and would stay so until WrestleMania 31, meaning this would be a disqualification win for Roman Reigns, which is the only way Rusev ever lost until that loss to Cena. This can be a nice powerhouse fight until that DQ and with Roman Reigns winning here in the semi finals, that sets up a finals fight between two former Shield brothers. Finals: Seth Rollins vs Roman Reigns The finals of the 2014 King of the Ring tournament would be between what would be two of this generation’s biggest stars, former stablemates Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins. It was always going to be one of The Shield members and I just wasn’t sure which one it would be. Ultimately I decided that Roman Reigns was the perfect choice for the winner of the tournament because the King of the Ring has been used to create stars and Roman Reigns is about to get that face of the company push and it starts by becoming the King of the Ring. This gives him an accolade that makes him credible before he gets back on that world championship chase next year reminiscent of Austin’s big win. The odds would be against Roman as he faces off against HHH’s new golden boy and he of course overcomes them. Seth was holding the MITB contract and wouldn’t need the victory, plus we know he would ultimately get revenge of sorts with that cash in at WrestleMania. After having everything stacked against him by The Authority, Roman Reigns becoming King of the Ring is a prelude to his massive push.
