Re: WWE Royal Rumble 2019 (7 p.m. ET start)

Love how the referee is a dumpy average guy that TOWERS over these superstars.

Which goes to my problem with the female division-- 90% of them are under 5'6 and 120 pounds, which only works if we all pretend there aren't women athletes larger than that.

I'm probably alone, but I love the motion tracked CGI they have been using.

I was expecting her to lose but to some sort of shenanigans that gives her reason to be pissed. I suppose Ronda could cost her, beat her up pretty bad and becky wins the rumble against all odds.

Asuka is great so happy for her to have the title.

Wrestlers have to stop doing that **** where they move with the beat of a count on what's meant to be a near-fall. Wrestlers never do that **** on an actual winning pinfall, and by now it's just an announcement that this isn't going to three.

Loved it.

Becky's odds of winning the Rumble just skyrocketed.

I also really enjoyed that match. Totally fine with the finish/booking.

Asuka needed a big clean win to legitimize her more. We all know what she did in NXT, but she hasn't been booked well on the main roster and really needed that.

Good match, didn't like some of Becky's selling though - gets nailed by a kick to the head, immediately gets up for the disarmer?

I guess I'm seeing the era post-invincible Asuka here, but those kicks just look so insanely brutal they need to be sold more.

Meh whatever way you look at it though it's a massive step in the right direction from the time when random models were champs

If nothing else you have to have Becky around at the end of the Rumble. Either she wins or she's a very credible tease when you have someone else go over.

Hey guys:

Does anyone know what Seth Rollins new merch shirt stands for? It has the Letters "S/F/R/N" on it.

Presumably (obviously lol) the SFR is Seth Freakin Rollins.....What does the N stand for?

Wait the Miz and Shane O'Mac are tag team partners?

I thought the match was decent, too many slight botches to be good.

I look forward to Charlotte winning the rumble .

I believe it's intended to be like Seth F'n Rollins. It is terrible though and it took me awhile to put it together.

Is a Shane heel turn the most likely outcome here? Face Miz was just so terrible last time they tried it though.

Re: WWE Royal Rumble 2019 (7 p.m. ET start)

I remember when I said something like "Hey guys, I think it's a bad sign that they are using Becky's overness to put heat elsewhere instead of capitalizing on someone the fans actually being behind. They seem to have a habit of doing this and the end result is - with the exception of Bryan - a cooled off face and the heel not being any more over themselves. It sucks." and was told that they didn't think that was happening this time.

Then she lost clean as a whistle to asuka by tapping out and I remembered that it really sucks being right about wwe sucking

The shirts are listed as SFNR so I assume FN is freakin?

meh

If they can't have her beat asuka - who they had doing nothing and was forgotten about a month and a half ago - then they aren't letting her fight Rousey 1 on 1 at mania. Charlotte will win and if we're lucky Becky will get in there to eat the pin.
