    On the note of the Lesnar renewal, while it was reported to be a multi-year deal, Jeremy Botter claims that it's just a two-appearance deal (one TV, one more match). It's likely we'll see him more than two appearances, but after the Greatest Royal Rumble he's focusing solely on UFC and targeting the end of year fight card.

    Some in the locker room don't even believe Lesnar signed a new contract and that he's simply working through the extension clause.

    What? They didn’t even crack 3 million. It wasn’t even their highest number of the year.

    The fans booed the entire match Sunday because they’d resigned themselves to a Reigns win. They were getting infuriated with every kick out because they saw it as building the ultimate AGAINST ALL ODDS moment. The Lesnar win was unexpected so I think there was as much confusion and stunned silence as when Taker lost to Lesnar, just not in the same emotional vein.

    They were more interested in the beach balls that were all over the place. Ball vs security was a the more interesting match.

    Wow I was very confused at what we were arguing about. That was supposed to be 11 months lmfao. I just caught that.

    I think I’m becoming R-Truth.

    It's not really a disappointment given the context of it. They didn't exactly have a lengthy amount of time between him getting cleared and that show.

    But they rely on their social media to create that buzz

    When you're trying to pop a bigger number, social media buzz on that day is only going to do so much. They needed longer to promote something like that to get a huge number. It wasn't going to happen with that kind of turnaround and it did exceedingly well under the circumstances because it was mainstream news to an extent and that alone should tell people how popular Bryan actually is and was.

    Pretty much sums it up. After 7 hours or wrestling fans were treated to a main even they didn't want to see where 99% of people thought they knew the ending which was Reigns on his ass 99% of the match and the superman punch spear win. That is what 3 wM's with that crap. Fans were fed up and didn't want to see it. I don't blame them I tuned out to. Only thing that got me back interested is that Brock actually won.

    Whatever Brock's status is, I am sure Vince is already booking WM 35 for Brock/Reigns part 4 where Reigns FINALLY gets the crowd behind him LOL.

    How many years has it been since Brock broke the streak? Four?

    All this time and they haven’t let one person go over him that is a full timer. Not one. And they sent Roman in twice just to get cold feet and pull back.

    If they just stopped with this Roman nonsense they could have put the rub on someone people like and found new ways to use Brock or just let him **** off to UFC.

    They are so stupid.

    My thought was always that it should have been Wyatt who got the Lesnar rub imo. Never even do Wyatt vs. Taker, just build up Wyatt as a killer -- beats Bryan, The Shield, Roman, Cena, HHH as his notable opponents building up to Wyatt vs. Lesnar for the title and Wyatt winning. He would have been a star, Lesnar wouldn't have been hurt losing to someone who picked up wins over Bryan, The Shield, Roman, Cena and HHH (and more) in that time frame.

    Wyatt can work, he can talk, the fans were behind him before his booking got derailed.

    If Strowman were in Roman's spot he would've gotten over

    That’s because he’s already gotten over organically.

    Then why don't they ever use him? I'm curious what the total count in the past year was for PPVs and Raws that he has been on. I'm sure I can count the amount of matches he has actually been in with 1 hand.

    Besides, we're fans, we're not in the business. We're voicing what we want. Because we don't like what a business does doesn't mean people don't understand business. It's like when Amazon raised their minimum price for free shipping. People didn't like it, it doesn't mean they don't understand business...

    They don't use him more because they contract that they signed him to probably doesn't allow it.

    If you sign me to contract for 25 dates, you can't just decide you want me for 50 dates

    What's the point of signing him if you're only signing for a very limited amount of dates though? If he's such a big star, why do people constantly go to all the shows despite Lesnar not being at the majority of events?

    It has to be Braun to get the title within the next month, right? They can't just move Bryan and let him beat Lesnar. Roman won't go over with anybody.
    Lesnar won't be there enough to Warrant having the title gone for 3-4 months.

    yeah, I just don't think everything that leaks is true. I expect him to drop the title to Roman that we finally get this **** of a run to Brock leave for UFC Training and program. After that he'll return right around RR and for WM. Money makes Brock happy and Vince will give him Money.

    I’m not convinced Brock is going to survive the testing pool, and this is just more negotiation postering to get more money out of Vince.

    He is going to wrestle at Summerslam and Mania next year.

    When Curtis Axel is main eventing on Raw the night after Wrestlemania, I don't think the title is being held up by Brock. AJ has his so I'm happy, the rest... meh. Another Seth run, no thanks, Reigns and his stupid punches, nope, Finn? don't care, Samoa Joe... is this TNA?

    Samoa Joe is like the best all-round talent in the WWE these days imo.
