Well, stupider things have happened, but part of me refuse to believe that Vince would place the strap on a part timer who is doing a very limited run (Goldberg). Since Lesnar may not do MMA again, putting the belt on him makes slightly more sense.

I think KO is ready and can main event WM against a kick ass opponent.


#162

Goldberg has been one of the few significant difference makers in this current run, in terms of TV ratings, crowd reactions, the video game and coming across as a genuine superstar at least. Might as well cash in while the going is hot and give him a title run.


#163

That said, I’m FULLY on board for a Lesnar/KO match WM match, but Lesnar/Goldberg is already set in stone.

I think it’s all but a foregone conclusion that Orton will NOT fight Cena for the SD title…right? I mean, they can’t possibly think that will fly with Ambrose and Styles on the roster.


#164

Nah, no way that Orton/Cena winds up happening at Mania. But you can see it (again) next week on Smackdown if you so desire…


#165

Styles/Cena continue to feud for a bit, and Styles walks into Mania with the strap and retains against Orton who has nothing to lose in this equation.

Trump just messes everything up:

This is either the best thing WWE has done or the worst:

Watched the most recent Hall of Fame ceremony. John Cena, for all the hate he gets, sure can give a good speech. His intro of Kurt Angle was one of the best. Kudos to Angle for making his speech short and sweet, focusing on the positives of his run.

Surely she’d have to be one of the first two. She can’t main event alone. WWE will have to book her better going forward, though. Because the bits I’ve seen of the Raw women’s division have been a mess. No real rhyme or reason behind any of the booking decisions, which is a shame due to all the talent they have.


#176

I can’t stand her. I think if she does anything resembling good it’s because she’s being carried. She’s terrible on the mic. Infinitely prefer Sasha Banks, Becky Lynch, even Bayley.


#177

This Wrestlemania has been interesting…was there ANY non-wrestling/Hollywood stuff thrown in, besides Pit Bull?
Shane/AJ was a great match.


#178

I know Rob Gronkowski got involved in the Andre the Giant Battle Royal.


#179

was that on the pre-show? I missed all of that.


#180

I think it was part of Wrestlemania. I only know because I read the live results.
