Re: Royal Rumble 2017: PPV Discussion Thread

Allegedly, Sasha is the biggest merch seller in WWE. So I have no idea why she's getting squashed.

Re: Royal Rumble 2017: PPV Discussion Thread

So I guess HHH is in the Rumble and Rollins gets him out?

I will watch this, and my father has been excitedly texting me about it all night. This will be the first wrestling I watch since Mania.

Re: Royal Rumble 2017: PPV Discussion Thread

Wait Rollins banned from the building? Like he's not on the card at all? Like, I'm not a mark all of a sudden just because I don't watch much, obviously he's going to be there at some point... but he's not scheduled to be in any match? That sounds ****ing retarded.

That just can't be true.

Welcome back TBE, no he's not scheduled in any match.

To be fair, once they made the decision to keep the strap on Charlotte, they need to build up someone else that can be seen as a threat to her. Can't just keep doing Sasha/Charlotte forever.

They also made reference to the fact that Sasha was fighting injured. She'll beat Nia again after she has lost to Charlotte

They've been telegraphing Rollins-HHH at Mania for a while. Not sure what the point of the building ban is since he already kayfabe lost his spot in the Rumble match.

But if there's a title change on the preshow, does it really matter? The WWE are saying it doesn't because if it did, it'd be on the damn show.

Stay with me here. HHH working the marks because everyone says Seth will still find a way to **** HHH up during the show. I'm 100% sure this is the reasoning.

In before they only do 60 seconds between entrants in the Rumble anyway.

Missed whole pre-show since the Knicks decided to go play 4 overtimes.

Of course they also decided to lose the heartbreaker. At least it ends in time for the main card.

The "ban from the building" guarantees Seth will show up. They are finally building to Seth/HHH as a WM match.

Timing-wise, this match should have been months ago. But HHH only wrestles at and around WM these days.

This is seriously 4 hours for a Rumble + 4 matches? Surely there is gonna be filler matches and/or other unannounced stuff?

One featured a title change and another featured the champ eating the pin in a 6-person tag.

Other than that, you didn't miss much.

Seth injuring Borelor obviously made them fast track a few angles.

I really didn't enjoy AJ/Cena at SS and I envision this going much the same way, yet I can't wait to watch this. I'm actually excited for a ppv

Re: Royal Rumble 2017: PPV Discussion Thread

im trying to redeem my free month on WWE Network but keep getting an error on checkout. Guess i will stream through another site instead of doing it legit.

Who won the Sheamus/Ceasaro tag team match? I had to make a pizza/wings run.
