    I’ve no idea about his current injury status, but is there any chance Ambrose returns tonight? Would be good to see him come back to ‘even the odds’ and he’ll Seth, only to turn on him and cost him the title. Gets Seth away from the title, turns dean and sets up a massive match for Summerslam.

    Read somewhere a few days ago that he's still about 6 weeks away from returning.

    What's the deal with Mae Young? Heard all the stories about Moolah but have never read anything about Mae being a dick, unless you count shoving fish in her crotch before giving someone a bronco buster.

    That’s me done with WWE for a while. That was fecking dreadful. I’ve not watched RAW or SmackDown in about a month and only watched Extreme Rules this morning because I had a day left on my free trial.

    Feck yes B-team rule :lol:
    Braun is some sort of freak, how he got up that cage or more the speed he did it at wow!!
    Heck Ronda can generate some serious power, that judo slam she put on Miki no other femal superstar can match that sort of speed power and movement guess being a fecking athlete all your life pays off.
    Roman still sucks.
    Brock better get stripped of the title, don’t do a Dana and start handing out interim belts like they dollars at a strip club.
    When this inevitable Bliss vs Ronda match happens. Bliss should either get Cyborg, Nunes, Holmes or even better Gabi Garcia to accompany her to the ring.

    You could tell Mickie wasn't selling after that slam. That looked like genuine pain.

    Always wonder how they approach spots like Owens going through the table. "Alright Kev, the finish is Braun is going to fire you off the top of the cage through the announce table. Good? Good."

    No wonder WWE ignores a lot of the way fans react when you have absolute bellends like last night just doing clock chants during a fecking Seth Rollins match. I wouldn't have blamed Ziggler and Rollins if they had decided to do rest holds for most as a 'feck you' to them.

    i think a lot of Rondas work in that bit was quite rubbish. It was very scattergun and rushed and just didn’t work. When she was slamming Miki about in to the barriers at the start of her interference for one thing. If she’d kinda just slowed that down, got a hold of her properly and move her about it would have looked a lot cleaner.

    That Owens fall tho, I’ve never understood why announcers don’t move the monitors, they clear out of the way for it, just grab the monitor. The way Owens was kicking his feet and holding his head I thought he had connected with the monitor but looks like the table just came up and connected with the back of his head.
    Personally I wouldn’t mind giving that a try, I mean you can see the air bag under the desk so might even be fun. That Lashley bump when Roman kinda did an attitude adjustment over the top rope. Big bump for a big man.

    Rondas stuff was great, it looked realistic and the crowd went nuts for her.

    but speaking of the crowd, they suck and agree with @Mystry
    People complain about reigns getting the main event, and he was scheduled to be. But instead WWE puts Rollins and the IC title in the main event. And they pull that shit.

    Also Lashley vs Reigns second half was good.

    Just watching Raw and had to stop to type this. Talk about big men moving or doing things you wouldn’t expect, add Drew McIntyre to the list. Jesus Christ.... came from outta nowhere as well.

    Edit: props to Roman as well for taking that, 6ft 5” 265lbs Scots man flying through the air at you pulling a flip, hurtling towards you, taking that hit, Ouch. I mean Baylor did it like 2 minutes before Drew. Yeah it’s spectacular but seeing Drew do it add a whole new WTF factor to it.

    Although whole match ruined by the inevitable winner.

    Agreed. It seemed obvious where they were going with that and the main event, but i was hoping they would throw a curveball in.

    Then again, WWE could just say 'look at the main event we gave to you at the last PPV and people cared more about a clock, so here you go...'

    So roman v. Lashley again next week. What was the point of extreme rules then. Have a feeling it will be a double dq and the match at summerslam to be a triple threat. But it's a shame for lashley, just when the dude was getting some positive reaction , he has to again and I mean AGAIN share the spotlight with roman. This whole 50/50booking helps no one and in fact fans will hate Roman even more.

    I see either Roman winning to get his win back
    Or Brock coming out and beating them both up and it becoming a triple threat.

    Meh

    The thing I don’t understand right if they’d gone straight with Drew or Lashley vs Brock and either was to get a clean win over him it automatically launches them in to main event status. It would have been massive. They would have just created someone who is a big name. Having Roman win it wouldn’t have the same affect at this point.

    I would rather have seen Balor, Lashley,Drew or Seth take on Brock in a singles match then the inevitable triple threat we are going to get like @AshRK has mentioned. Although might as well throw Braun in to that mix somehow. Could see him cashing in just to make it a 4 way. “The Power Move”

    Hopefully they have some sort of plan where Lashley Beats Roman clean again so it’s like solidifying him as the man.

    Side note, Feck off Sasha and Bayley, just hurry up and turn Sasha or Bayley. They are both turning in to the female equivelant of Roman for me.

    Ahhh the B team, they bring me such joy :lol:

    @Andersons Dietician they probably have reigns win the title. And then Braun cash in on him ... to send the crowd happy.

    Then Braun vs Reigns feud for the title lol

    I mean that would be cool and all. What’s the shortest time the belt has ever been held for :lol:

    Still think it’s a bit of a waste of an opportunity to make a superstar, plus pay it home to the fans that have made it pretty clear they don’t want Roman as champ.

    I totally agree btw @Andersons Dietician
    I wouldnt have an issue with Lashley straight out defeating Lesnar in a one on one. (Though he badly needs new music).

    Yeah. Could you imagine tho, the man that toppled The Beast, did what Roman couldn’t do. Then you instantly have a rivalry with Roman. Keep the Roman Brock thing alive if they ever fancy doing a re-run of that.

    There is still a chance it happens but sensible money is on a triple threat.

    Ronda vs Bliss at SS is surely going to be a squash match. Can’t see how Bliss wins in any credible fashion. The ye old count out possibly.

    What a stupid match to set up. Instead of giving us something fresh and a match we've never seen before(tna doesnt count, assuming lashley faced mcintyre there) we just get yet another rematch. Lashley better win.

    Also stop acting like Reigns has legitimate claim to the title. He lost again and again and his feet touched first ffs. Stop having your heel announcer make excuses for the babyface.

    I could see Braun cashing in at the beginning of the match to make a triple threat or fourway. No way he runs down after the champ has already taken a beating.

    They're doing Aj Vs Almas tonight on SDL. If they don't Vince it up like basically every other thing that goes on there, it would be a perfect thing.

    If they go NXT style and let it be just a great match it will put Almas in the main event picture. I mean this has the potential to be a match that we remember years later like Taker Vs Jeff Hardy. But whom I'm kidding? Every time I get excited about something they somehow find a way to ruin it. I mean sometimes it's very hard to ruin a great thing but they always find a way. Vince is a genius for that.

    They'll probably have it last 5 minutes and include a Sin Cara interference just to rub it in

    Orton only returned two days ago and I had already forgotten it until I saw the recap. Such a bland, boring bastard.

    It'll probably be something to do with the women if she's making the announcement. Women's tag titles or women only PPV would be my guesses.

    My guess, too. The tag titles, that is

    IIconics
    Sasha and Bayley's current storyline setting up a tag team
    Sonya Deville and that other one
    Riott Squad
    Maybe the Bella's can return

    I just wonder if they do come out with a womens tag team championship, will they have two or will there be one to be defended on both shows like the Undisputed Championship in the initial brand split in 02.

    Can't forget:
    Carmella and Ellsworth (the first ever womens MITB winner as well)
    Alexa and Mickie James

    Maybe Sister Abigail can become a full time competitor? It's not like Bray's up to much anymore sadly
    Ha, I honestly don't pay close enough attention to the product anymore to remember her name off by heart. The only stuff I consistently watch are Daniel Bryan's matches and segments. Though her name did come back to me before you replied so that's something. :D

    I only remembered Sonya's name because she's always stood out to me with a (before Ronda and Shayna from NXT) unique look. Plus, along with Asuka, she's probably the most attractive woman on the roster for me :drool:

    It's why I just said "Riott Squad" as well. Apart from the leader Ruby, I don't know the other twos names.
