I'm happy that it sounds as if Roman's doing better but I don't want him back. Seeing him weekly will be awkward and I'll certainly be skipping RAW on Monday to avoid his awkward promo.
How about a mandatory rule that everyone over the age of 50 at Wrestlemania has to be in the same single match. That way, maybe the current roster can have some singles matches. Has Braun ever had a singles match yet at Mania?

Re: Wrestling- NVG (SPOILERS inside view at your own risk)

I really, really wish WWE would stop turning almost every big match into a "TRIPLE THREAT!!!!" or "FATAL FOURWAY!!!!"+++.

Why can't single titles be decided in normal one-on-one match? Does anyone really want to see 3+ people in a match for a singles title?

Why can't we just have Brock vs Braun and Ronda vs Becky without adding pointless noise?

So ronda can drop the title without being pinned

There's a chance she's tapped out by Becky but if not, Becky's pinning her.

WWE Hall of Famers Ric Flair and Hulk Hogan reunited on stage tonight at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City, NJ for a "Legends of the Ring" event.

Flair told fans in attendance that WWE Hall of Famer Harley Race has been diagnosed with terminal lung cancer, according to Jay Alletto, who attended the event and tweeted a few highlights.

Race has dealt with a number of health issues over the past few years. WWE announced in June 2017 that Race broke both legs after a serious fall in his home in Troy, MO. Race was still using a scooter to get around as of October 2018. He was expected to make a full recovery from the fall, but was still recovering as of last fall. He did visit backstage at a WWE SmackDown event in St. Louis in mid-November. Race, who turns 76 on April 11, was also still visiting his Harley Race Wrestling Academy three times per week as of last October. He's also underwent operations on his neck, hips, knees and his back over the years.

Tommaso Ciampa is having neck surgery and will probably be out of action for at least the remainder of 2019.

****.

What awful timing. Not that there's ever a good time. He'll now have spent most of the last 3 years on the sidelines. I also now have his entrance music firmly entrenched in my mind since reading this.

next up is him vs a lady in her "debut". She has a smokeshow gimmick that WWE wish they had about 10 years ago.

Also you can watch it on twitch. Impact is live on there now on friday nights.

Re: Wrestling- NVG (SPOILERS inside view at your own risk)

Does this actually mean they are going on last?

Wrestlemania 29, for example, had three matches that they were calling "main events".

Re: Wrestling- NVG (SPOILERS inside view at your own risk)

I interpret it as going on last. Don’t think it’s “BREAKING” that the match is among the 25 designated main events for the evening, as we already knew that a while ago.

I also take it as being last. How WWE bills and promoters a match supersedes how they announce it.

I can't see watching all of this. I read somewhere that they extended it to 8 hours this year. wtf is wrong with these people. Not everyone needs to be on the show. I will have alcohol on hand for this and I will not regret missing the main event if that happens.

Re: Wrestling- NVG (SPOILERS inside view at your own risk)

Glad it's going on last so I can close it early since they extended it by another hour. Sucks that they took something I was really interested in and made me not care about it at all by involving the McMahons, Charlotte, injuries, and the russo-esque GOLDBERG REFUSED TO FOLLOW THE SCRIPT* nonsense.

At this point I'm in for Kofi/Bryan, Roman/Drew, and Brock/Seth and will be half paying attention to other things. The days of me watching intently during the preshow and the entire show are long gone.

* It gets me every time

Re: Wrestling- NVG (SPOILERS inside view at your own risk)

Even though Ronda's my favorite thing about WWE now, I can't get into this match for the obvious finish. I hope that Becky goes over Charlotte for the ultimate swerve, bro. Seeing Ronda tap to Becky would be so deflating. As Ronda's keen to point out now, that happening is not realistic.

The only two matches I'm interested in are Kofi/Bryan and Seth/Brock. Both because it seems like the winner's in doubt. I'm 95% certain Kofi's winning but I could see Vince putting Bryan over. Brock/Seth was interesting before Roman came back but now it's even funnier.

The cruiserweights usually shine on ppvs so hopeful for that. Also, whatever K-GOAT's doing. Since I haven't been watching was that Dean/Nia angle just dropped? Is Dean doing something at WM?

Re: Wrestling- NVG (SPOILERS inside view at your own risk)

It's probably not a great sign for the state of the weekly TV that I'm apparently more interested in the main event than the people posting ITT and it's probably owing to the fact that I've barely watched any of the weekly TV.

I can't get behind this look. Making Bray look like less of a madman is going to do no favors for him.

Being an effective madman is more about how you act than how you look.

For example, Jake Roberts didn't really look crazy.
