I'm a little sad that I care about one match and that one match will be on last.

I'll be happy if we get Kofi/Bryan as the final 2 in the EC (and they at least make it suspenseful). Was kind of fun when they had Santino get some close falls on DB in that one EC

Daniel Bryan has discussed issues of global warming and how the boomer generation has left the planet in a mess by only caring about short term profits. He got rid of the leather WWE title for a hemp one. He is the heel.

Becky Lynch is the most over person in the company, so naturally Steph inserted herself into the storyline and Vince inserted Charlotte. Gotta let everyone know Steph was the leader of the revolution and Charlotte has a famous dad that Vince likes so she needs to get the spotlight always. Plus, how else can you do a wrestlemania without an "authority trying to keep the face down" angle?

Rollins and Ambrose had a blood feud after Ambrose said Roman deserved cancer. Rollins beat him clean, won the rumble, and Ambrose told him gl in slaying the beast at Mania and the rest of the stuff was forgotten?

There's a guy named Otis that does weird ****.

Elias has been fighting Road Dogg and Jeff Jarrett.

The Revival threatened to leave for AEW (a new wrestling company set up by Kenny Omega and The Bucks and Cody) so they are the tag champs now.

Corey Graves has been ****ing Carmella, who is his kids role model (she sends them birthday videos so she knows about the family). It blew up on instagram yesterday.

Think that catches you up

I don't even know what's on the card tonight. I think I'll just let the show come to me rather than looking at Wikipedia.

I see that Jim just said "Road Dogg and Jeff Jarrett" though, so I guess I know when I'll tune out.

Re: February PPPV thread. Elimination Chamber (?)

Quality recap. Only thing I would add is that Rusev blamed Nakumara for injuring his wife and wanted to kill him. So naturally, they become a tag team a week later after R-Truth beat both of them in one night for the U.S. title.

I did fortunately forget that:

- Shane and Miz are tag champs

- Lio Rush is wrestling a match involving the IC title

- Strowman is still fighting Corbin

Looking at it would only make you question your decision to actually watch it.

I really should go bed but I have vodka to drink and I was a kid when the first ever elimination chamber was and it was cool as **** + I've not been jaded by the years of it being a **** PPV gimmick as I wasn't watching.

In, cause tomorrow is a holiday but going to bed before it's done as usual sounds good still. Even though the network is not working that great.

Of all the things in that post, some over the hill ex wrestler from the 90s getting screen time is what shocked you the most?!

Imagine being that good at wrestling and only getting on the pre-show whilst Tamina is on the main card.

He's like 5 foot 9. Dean is like 6'4? Seth is a small guy on the main roster and I bet he's still like 6'1 or something.

You'd think the best way to get more eyes on 205 live would be to put **** hot matches (which they basically always are) on the main card so your average fan is watching. Or does the pre-show get like 10x the views as it's free?

Re: February PPPV thread. Elimination Chamber (?)

Has Strawman been given a main event push yet or is he still a complete and total waste?

He was the best thing on raw for a while, has been crap since he came back from injury and this is about the 50th match involving him and corbin.

Are a few people not on the card like angle and Mcintyre who probably need to join in to make it a little bit more interesting.
