    They'll give whoever the SmackDown challenge is the Rumble win.

    They'll have Roman win a generic #1 contender's match the next night, or just flat out say Roman is the "only worthy challenger" and stuff.

    I don’t think he is. Elimination Chamber is a raw ppv and could easily be decided there

    Roman will win elimination chamber to set up his match with Lesnar.

    SDL guy will probably win the Rumble.

    If Bautista comes back he is my top pick and same goes with Bryan.

    If not its either Roode or Orton, probably Orton again because Vince is Vince.

    If Batista comes back? There isn't a chance in hell Batista would be given the Rumble victory

    My hatred of the brand split is well known but man there should be one WWE champion at the very least allowed on both shows. Who cares about being the champion of RAW or Smackdown? Especially since Smackdown is still ripped on as the B show even in kayfabe.

    One Universal Champion, keep the IC title feuds on RAW, US title feuds on Smackdown and then add a TV title for Smackdown and a Hardcore or cruiserweight belt feud for RAW.

    Wham, bam, thank you ma’am.

    They don't even need to add more titles if they were to go with one WWE Champion for both shows. Allow guys to jump into IC/US title feuds and make those titles actually feel like they mean something.

    It's true they don't, but if they wanted to add like one more title I wouldn't mind seeing the Hardcore title gimmick brought back for awhile. At least it gave some guys some more air time with the "24/7 rule" and it was entertaining. I mean they werent really that hardcore, but the matches were fun time killers.

    He's not. The article states he's retaining his color commentary role with NJPW.

    Still can't believe that this guy was the Jackal back in the early Attitude Era.

    And he repped "The Network" in the dying days of ECW. Such a great heel and great talker. Never saw him actually wrestle. Love his blatant bias towards Kenny and Bullet Club.

    I thought they should have done this for the Woman since being the champ over 5 woman is not a big deal. Plus, you get into the "everyone gets a chance" territory to try to keep things from being stale yet that devalues the whole idea of a championship. It's better now with 9 woman per show but that took over a year to accomplish. Same thing applies to the tag titles.

    If Daniel Bryan is actually cleared, that might be enough to bring my interest back into the fold.

    - WWE may be turning Shane McMahon heel with him going overboard with his punishments to Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens.

    - Michael Elgin's been pulled from bookings after allegations of him covering up a sexual assault committed by one of his students.

    - Ronda Rousey is reportedly close to signing a WWE contract.

    - Scott Dawson should return within the next 4-6 weeks.

    How does Shane turn heel without turning Sami/Owen face?

    Sami/Owens are winning at Clash so where do they go from there? He still fires them? Daniel goes to save them and suddenly Daniel (who will forever be face from now on) is aligned with Kevin/Sami ( making them face by proxy) I just don’t see how it’s goig to work.



    Man I can’t wait for the revival to come back. My favorite tag team in years.

    Justin Barrasso says Matt Hardy has creative license. Vince wants to cash in on an established character.

    from WON

    While they said Sheamus was out of action last week because he was on a trip back to Ireland, he’s actually rehabbing spinal stenosis, which is not a good thing at all. Spinal stenosis ended the careers of Edge and Steve Austin

    If a Smackdown guy wins the Rumble, its going to be either Nakamura or more likely giving the current storyline, Kevin Owens. Shane won't give Owens a title shot, so he wins the Rumble to get one, with help from Sami Zayn of course.

    Creative has nothing for him, but Drew "Snooze Button" Gulak is in a number one contenders match, ha ha.

    It's all going to revolve around Daniel Bryan. All Owens and Zayn have to do to prevent a heel turn is be mean to Bryan after he tries to help them. Which he will, because Shane is mistreating them. The worst part of this, is that its hard to cheer against Owens and Zayn because they are kind of correct.
