Obviously this is what I was referring to when I mentioned Heyman being branded now. It's awful. The ****ing Lunatic Fringe. GFY!

Re: Oldberg: The PPV

i am also looking forward to this one

theyve taken braun from a complete waste of a roster slot when he was with the wyatts just being big and doing nothing to a legit interesting character with fun matches. a lot of that is due to his work ethic and improvement, but hot damn theyve done a great job with him creatively too

it works on occasion but they just beat it over and over
Even more annoying than this is the fact that they give these stupid ****ing cutesy nicknames to signature transitional moves.

Re: Oldberg: The PPV

They might want to give Roman new music. I mean, the response to boo the **** out of his current theme the second that it hits is downright Pavlovian at this point.

Re: Oldberg: The PPV

This seems to be a big match for Braun. He can turn into a monster like Vader or just turn into a mediocre big man like Show from 99-current.

Why does Roman have video game arrows on his back? Gimmick change? HEEL TURN?

Re: Oldberg: The PPV

I don't think trying to get the nicknames over is the problem. The problem is that the nicknames they, and by they I mean creative, come up with are not normal nicknames. Boxers have used nicknames for plenty of years and there was never an issue. The King of Cruiserweights is not a nickname. It's an overly clever moniker someone in an office came up with. Same goes for The Monster Among Men or whatever it is.

I always thought they should light up like Jericho's old jacket, and then as he takes damage each arrow starts to go dark, until he is pinned

I laughed way more than I should've. I'd love to see that.

This match has been watchable, but my pre-match hopes have been lowered.

Yeah. I'm envisioning people ****ting all over this because it's Roman's turn to carry a subpar worker. Braun just hasn't been in a long physical match before.

It's 10 after, and we still have Bayley/Charlotte.

Goldberg/Owens really is gonna be like 2 minutes, isn't it?
