    Good PPV! Looks like we're definitely heading to Kofimania after last night's events with that 2-on-1. The crowd and online reaction, I believe, made sure that this wasn't a blow off deal (a term that got thrown around unwisely on wrestling Twitter last night).

    I'm super happy that Andrade and Rey got moved into the main card for the US title and, I REALLY REALLY hope that Joe rockin' the title will start to build some momentum around it again. R-Truth is also doing a lot with this as well and I'm happy to see him being elevated as well.

    If it's Nia & Tamina vs Nattie & Beth, I imagine it'll be during the kickoff. I also think they get injected into the women's tag team title picture somehow.

    Shane vs. Miz should be fun and I'm glad to see that this went where it looked it was going.

    I guess we're really calling this The Shield's last ride, huh. If so, it was a great way for the hounds to go out on a high note. Good crowd reaction for all three and a great match that reminded me of Payback '14 before the Rollins turn.

    The Raw Women's Title - So, a few things. One, I want Becky to get off of this knee injury deal now. Give her a slight limp, but no more with it. We've had it for a month and a half now so time to move on there. Two, I don't understand why Ronda didn't just continue the beatdown after hitting Becky once. Are the nasty looks meant to imply that she wants to murder them both and move Charlotte back into a tweener-type of spot? After calling wrestling fake after that YouTube video, you'd think more would have happened than did. Three, for some weird reason, I could see this going back to just Ronda vs. Becky? I'm confused. Excited, but confused.

    - I'm up for Shane/Miz and i actually like Shane better as a heel (just like the Mean Street Posse days...)

    - Not sure it will be the last time we'll ever see the SHIELD, people said the same thing about the Rock...

    - Andrade and Rey deserved a better spot and they got it, i'm glad they did

    - I like Kofi but his storyline feels a bit forced, i'm pretty sure it will be a fatal four way match between Bryan, Kofi, KO and Mustafa Ali

    I'm not convinced on anything Shield or Dean leaving. There's a "farewell address" opening Raw tonight. Leaving or not, I think we're getting Roman/Dean at mania. Who else would Roman have a meaningful match with?

    Kofi storyline is getting convoluted. Gotta buy time when you change your plans i guess. It's clear he's getting a mania match at least.

    They're killing Becky imo. Another convoluted mess but far worse. Last night's finish made her look like a dweeb too. She couldn't get the win without Ronda helping her. Match that Becky had because she won the rumble, but nah, let's just forget about that ever happening. But hopefully, since the match is now finalized, it can get back on track. It's a mess.

    The booking with Becky is so weird; first they make her tap out clean to Asuka at the Royal Rumble, then they fake an injury to make her look more badass (but made her look even weaker...) and now she wins with Rhonda's help.

    I think they had something special with "The Man" character and they drowned that, it's almost like they don't want anyone to be a "Top Guy/Girl".

    There are reports that the match will come down to what Ronda decides to do post-Mania, similar to what was going on with Brock at WM34 (does he leave for UFC or does he stay and since he stays just keep the title on him) and... I think that's fucking dumb. You have a Daniel Bryan WM30 scenario, The Man has taken off - don't fuck it up now. I think Vince is gonna give us one or the other in terms of Brock/Seth and Ronda/Becky/Charlotte where the fans get one and he gets the other.

    Of course, there's a chance they walk through Seth winning against Brock and Vince ends up saying "PUT IT BACK ON BROCK DAMNIT" but I think Triple H would blow a gasket. Anyway, they need to get Becky back on track and cut the shit. She's earned this and is on a tidal wave of momentum that almost fizzled out last night. Thankfully they had a good crowd so bullet dodged there.

    No match on the card...but this works I guess. Happy for her. Hopefully new stuff arrives after WM35.

    Went to a good friend of mine's wedding tonight. He is the biggest wrestling fan that I personally know, and tonight he was given an authentic replica European Championship belt as a wedding gift from his wife. Eric Stonestreet from Modern Family was also at this wedding, and when him and my buddy finally got a few minutes of one on one talk with each other, Stonestreet pulls his phone out and FaceTimes Brock Lesnar on the spot, who he is apparently really good friends with. Lesnar said hello, congratulated my buddy on his marriage and said a few other things (including joking about taking him for the title belt he just got) before hanging up.

    Fucking wildest thing I've ever seen.

    I can just picture Asuka driving to the next show at 1:30 AM in full gear with her mask on blasting Iron Maiden as she tears down the road.

    Damn. Imagine how over they could have gotten anyone on the roster if they went out and DQ'd Daniel Bryan in that last match. It could have been anyone and they would have been a huge star in an instant. But once again, poor writing and a huge missed opportunity. Why create another face megastar when you can get more cheap heat?

    Are we talking about the gauntlet match? I disagree wholeheartedly if the goal is to push Kofi up for a big moment at WM35. You've had strong reactions from the crowd since his last gauntlet match and taking away from that to boost another person up with 3 weeks left until Mania doesn't make much sense. Big reaction again last night even after DB came out and finished Kofi off after the swerve.

    I don't care about the Kofi push but I am surprised to know Rowan has good music taste. I love seeing what band shirt he wears every week.

    WM35 is gonna be a long show. We have 10 matches announced without the following titles being officially defended yet -

    WWE Championship, WWE Women's Tag Team Championship, Raw Tag Team Championship, Smackdown Tag Team Championship, Intercontinental Championship (I'm not counting Smackdown Women's because a #1 contender's match was announced for next week).

    If we add them all in... 15 matches. We add the Women's Battle Royal - 16 matches.

    Sounds about right... Clearly someone there has got to know it's overkill. It's too much.

    so im gonna do the thing i did last time and give my opinions on those that ive seen from me watching all of this

    Loved
    -----
    Seth Rollins (Face) : Who would have thought this unlikable smug ass dick head would turn into such a likable dude? The dude is so fucking over now, its crazy. I really think in my mind that he is really climbing up into the ranks as some of the best. I really love seeing him around.

    Samoa Joe: This guy is a badass. The way he walks down into the ring, he is walking with a purpose, a purpose shared with Stone Cold, and that it's he is looking for an ass whoopin. Awesome in the ring, awesome talker, great stuff.

    AJ Styles: I can see why you guys go crazy over him. I dont think ive ever seen a bad match out of him, he is so on point. He really has everything going in the ring. I have never been bored with him, ever.

    Daniel Bryan (Heel): So ive never seen Bryan as a heel before and holy shit, who would of thought a person who looks like me in about 10 years be such an unlikable prick? Holy shit man. It really went from YES YES YES YES YES to BOOOOOOOOOOOOOO in a nanosecond.

    Baron Corbin: Ok hear me out. I really think Baron could be a really great dude. Currently, his booking and his promo's are the only thing thats holding him back and its actually pissing me off. He really has everything to make him a fantastic heel but they are just fucking him up really bad because he has the stuff to make him work. Music, awesome, Deep Six? Awesome. Chokeslam Backbreaker? Also cool. End of Days? Cool and painful looking. they way he just shrugs off the crowd is great too, he know how to be an asshole. He has got the stuff in ring....but right now, they are making him have the personality of a clock. Paint watches him dry on the wall. He is very underrated and i really hope they quit fucking him up.

    Bruan Stroman: I didnt like him at first, but he really won me over with the whole, "I am ungodly strong, watch me FLIP OVER THESE FUCKING CARS OVER" shit. It's so fucking stupid but i love it.

    Elias: I actually really like him. Sure, his ring work is not the best in the world, but it doesn't have to be. You can say the same thing about The Rock, they are both best at the mic.

    Matt/Jeff Hardy: BROTHER GRAHAM...AH NEEEWWW YOU'D ADD ME ON THIS LIST BECAUSE I AM...........OVAAAAAAAAAH. and i will fade away and classify myself as obsolete..........OBSOLETEAAAAA YeHeHeHeHeHeS OoOOOooOooooOoOOOoahhh

    -------
    mixed
    -----
    Shinsuke: Despite getting my approval of being a fucking troll, I'm not seeing much of this guy outside of being really fucking weird and crotch punching AJ. Maybe I just need to watch more.

    Bobby Roode: Okay, first of all, this guys entrance might be the best thing for how ridiculously over the top and overblown it is, but outside of that.....i really REALLY don't see anything special about this guy.

    Jinder Mahal: You re very boring, but at least you try the best that you can muster and I at least Respect you for that.


    Havent hated any one new yet

    Damn, it is official! I am happy, especially because I wouldn't mind any of the three possible outcomes of the match, as long as the winner comes out as a beast. I am so not giving a shit about AJ vs. Brock, that they better make the main event and the Kofi match awesome!

    Women headlining is the right call. Glad they're going with it. Build's been pretty iffy, but thankfully Becky's Twitter game is unstoppable, and Heel Ronda is killing it so far. They all deserve it and I know they're going to do it right.

    I don't see Rollins winning tbh. The build has been pretty bad imo. Rollins has cooled off so much. Not having Lesnar around doesn't help much either. Lesnar wins and Roman probably beats him again at summerslam, which sucks. Need to get that belt off Lesnar asap.
