Anderson and Gallows aren't nostalgia, they're the undisputed kings of missed opportunities. Burying the Revival at their expense at this point is messing up two teams - WWE inexplicably missed the Bullet Club train when it was red-hot, and they still had a chance to book the Revival as a top team even after Dawson's injury. This was just silly.

(sounds like someone backstage took Cody Rhodes's catchphrase to heart - "f*** the Revival" :P)

Yeah but after Gallows and Anderson stomped them, DX came in and literally kicked them while they were down.

I think it was just a means to get the guys who couldn't take bumps anymore in the ring and passingly active.

It has just been brought to my attention that there is a possibility that Roman lost the IC title so he can win the rumble and get a UT shot.

I don't know how I feel about this.

I mean... Does that really surprise you?

I've just come to expect a constant push for Roman. I don't approve of it, but I expect it.

I wish Joe hadn't been injured. I'd have rather Roman lost the IC to him than the Miz. With Joe, it's an unrelenting, rageful brute Force that wrenches it from Roman's limp hands as he once again drift in that dark night, yet still refusing to tap because his pride dictates that he fights to the very end. The bad blood running between these two would be thick and acrid, both men willing to have it out anytime and anywhere.

Instead, what we got was Roman getting his face bashed into an unpadded turnbuckle and pinned, not because the fight was arduous and the former champion succumbed, but because he'd just been concussed by a coward and a cheat. Sure, superficially it looks like it could be fun -- Roman, spectacularly wronged, seeks revenge against the little prick. But the Miz will flee from challenge because that's what the Miz does. If the Shield were intact, the Miz' propensity for hiding behind the 'tourage would at least have some working potential. Dean and Seth could kneecap some clingy fucks back stage in order to re-establish order on behalf of their bro! OR LITERALLY ANYTHING.

Instead... what? Roman takes down all of the Miztourage to get his title back? Gotta make Roman look strong. Or -- he tags with Seth, usurping JJ? Nice idea but they're clearly using Dean's absence to push JJ. I have trouble believing he'll get kicked to the curb for a Rolleigns team.

So what's left? Roman's solo career. All I've been hearing since August is that Roman/Lesnar at WM is inevitable; that Vince and his creepy Maiavia boner were going to push Roman rrrrrrright to the tippy fucking top, regardless of whether any of want that or not.

And as a Roman fan I want to express that Roman peeling the UC off of (presumably) Lesnar will not make me happy. I'm as appalled by the idea of Cena 2.0 as anyone.

TBH tho I didn't even realize he'd thrown his hat into the Rumble.

Tbh I'm fairly confident that they'll give the Rumble to Nakamura. Reigns doesn't need the Rumble to enter a program with Lesnar, all you need is a Heyman promo to start it off.

Since Elimination Chamber is going to be a Raw PPV this year, I'm thinking that Smackdown's side (Probably Nakamura) will win the Rumble to set up a Chamber match on the Raw side to determine the #1 contender for the UC at Mania- because I don't think there's a chance in hell Brock is defending the title in the EC. If Roman/Brock is your end goal, this seems like a much better way to go about it, as you don't have to have Roman forget about the IC title right away ("Now I've won the Rumble, who cares about that little title?"- not a great way of making the IC title seem important) and just as importantly, you have four weeks fewer of the fans shitting on Reigns every time he gets on the mike. Reigns has made tremendous strides since the last time they tried Lesnar/Reigns to the point where it's no longer arguable that he's "not ready" or "doesn't deserve the spot", but I don't think there are any fans out there (even Reigns fans) that think "Yes, it is a good idea to have Reigns verbally spar with Paul Heyman for nine weeks. He will come out of that looking very good and people will be excited to see the match".

The only way Roman winning the Rumble makes sense (other than in a Vinny Mac masturbatory fantasy) is if Brau(uuuuuuu)n wins the title at the Rumble and defends it at EC in a one on one with Lesnar, because Brock isn't getting in the chamber and if Braun doesn't have the belt, why is there a reason for Brock to fight Braun for it? That turd of a booking night that No Mercy laid on us already showed us a Brock/Braun single, so there's no reason to give us another one without a change of stakes.

Random prediction of the night: HHH screws over Braun at the Rumble as payback for Survivor Series/Braun tearing down Raw to set up Braun to play the Game at Mania.

I mean, I'd watch it, but in the past 24 hours alone I've also enthusiastically expressed a desire to watch John Cena play Duke Nukem in a movie adaptation so I'm pretty open about my affinity for trainwrecks.

There's rumors that Cena is gonna play Duke in a Duke Nulem movie. And I would watch that, because oh my god.

I'm gonna start calling Roman Romey Maiavia instead of Cena 2.0 because the first step to affecting change is a positive outlook for the future and there's no more dystopian a future for Roman than being John Cena.

"Underwhelming" is an understatement for this whole show, unfortunately.

They had to have Lesnar retain.

He's about to break CM Punk's championship length.

Don't worry, Roman gets it next PPV.

Charlotte breaking Asuka's streak was huge but also deeply frustrating as an Asuka fan because it didn't feel suuuuuper earned

fuck ronda rousey

fuck ronda rousey

fuck. ronda. rousey.
