Re: 2017 Elimination Chamber PPV

Oddly don't hate that end. Think it sets up a WM match better.

Re: 2017 Elimination Chamber PPV

Double countout is kind of nice just from a standpoint that it doesn't blow this feud off and thus doesn't free up Nikki Bella for that awkward rumored mixed tag at Mania.

Re: 2017 Elimination Chamber PPV

although I have to say it'd also have been interesting if Mickie James came back to help Natty beatdown Nikki ..... could've played the whole angle that Mickie lost her spot to the bikini chick era

I can totally see them blowing it off on Smackdown since there is a long time before WM without a Smackdown PPV. In fact, it could be how that rumoured angle gets started...

Re: 2017 Elimination Chamber PPV

I wish Braun and Luke Harper were still with Bray.

Probably an unpopular opinion ?

Re: 2017 Elimination Chamber PPV

Nikki is stunning

question bc I'm a newb. so Nikki reversed the figure four into some submission of her own (crippler crossface I guess?), when she did, there was a huge huge pop. Is it possible for those two to read the crowd and decide to change the finish on their own? I remember reading that at WM18 Hogan & Rock, after getting a read on the crowd leaning towards Hogan, improv'd the entire match on the fly basically to play to the crowd but obv they're gonna have more freedom than most.

It was the Yes Lock. The submission finisher used by Daniel Bryan (her bro in law) thus the pop. Prob nothing else to read into.

Braun is one of the best things on RAW imo. I see where you are coming from but if he was with Bray none of that would have been possible.

Ah ok. Seemed like they were loving Nikki a lot I guess. Crowd reaction for her seemed stronger than American Alpha for example.

That's the way it is these days. The only heels that get pure heat are the ones that just suck and the Miz. It's a world of smarks now and the top guys are tweeners.

Because WWE couldn't leave well enough alone in mumbling "yep this is all a work" back in the 80s and decided to run with a business model of screaming it from the rooftops 24/7.

Orton still seems super over with a large chunk of the crowd, especially the ladies.

The WWE completely ignores crowd reaction.

Yeah, Orton pops are mostly for the RKO, definitely the most over finisher in the game today

Re: 2017 Elimination Chamber PPV

Orton is a heel who WWE wanted to get a face pop at RR.

Harper turned on a heel group, so is theoretically a babyface, but his first babyface feud is against the most babyface heel in the roster.

There hasn't been a match where it feels like the performers deserved much better.
