    I think that the "Hate" for Cena was exaggerated by the fans, he was the guy that the fans boo'd but deep down a lot of people cheered for him, but because it wasn't cool to like him, they boo'd.

    With Roman the dislike of him is real and visceral. Cena comes across as a pretty good guy, who loves the business and loves entertaining, and does a ton of charity work and other stuff. He's also a complete dork.

    Roman's whole vibe is arrogance and entitlement.

    I actually think Roman is a better worker now then when Cena was at his peak despised. Cena was not a good wrestler in 2006-07. He has gotten a lot better in ring in last 5 years.

    Cena in 2006? wrestling garbage matches against JBL where he pulls the super man come from behind crap deserved all the hate it got. Never mind the constant Cena/Orton feuds. Those two could feud in 1000 years and it would still be too soon.

    Roman’s hate now is definitely worse. That garbage Mania match, and all the nonsense since then has turned what was really just apathy to full blown hatred.

    Everyone was simply apathetic before Mania. Just wanted to get it over with, and some even saying his promos and work have improved and maybe they will turn him heel and it will be ok

    Now with him main eventing with stinker after stinker, and the booking pushing the limits of believability as far as it can go. The only thing that will save Roman now is disappearing for 8 months and coming back as a heel in the mid card.

    They have done that much damage in the past month and a half. You can’t wrestle negative five star matches, lose, and still keep get handed title shots and main event spots.

    Never mind that Seth is lighting the world on fire and proving why he is the Shield that should have the rocket attached to him. He always was too.

    We knew it way back when too. We let injury and bad booking distract us from the truth.

    Bobby Lashley getting tied up to a tree and left there by his sisters is super dark. He might actually be clean after hearing that. He could just be obsessive. That ending was haunting.

    Did I understand right? There with be both Raw and SDL MitB matches for both the men and women? 4 ladder matches on a single card? Was really hoping we would get just 1 for each the men in the women, where the winners could go after any champ on any show.

    Jinder finally gonna get some cheers going up against Reigns. (Vince must think Reigns will actually get cheers from this since everyone hates Jinder)

    It would be really great if you could get large sections of fans to just leave their seats and hang out in the concourse for the Jinder/Reigns match (or actually leave to beat the traffic if it's the main event). Vince can mix up the audio to drown out the boos, but he can't really do much about the camera showing huge sections of empty seats.

    Oh thank god. 1 woman's ladder match will be awful enough. Although Ember, Asuka and Charlotte give it some hope to be better than the one I slept through last year.

    When has any of his promos ever made sense? He's a cartoon monster that's flipped trucks and ambulances over. You want him to have Lars Sullivan's vocabulary?

    His promos went from, "I'll beat the hell out of you" to bedtime stories about how he'll beat the hell out of you, apparently.

    It will be good if they book it to be good.

    A ladder match with 4HW, Ember, Asuka, Naomi, and say, Ruby should be very good.

    I guess the writers are into kid stories lately with Cass talking about being Bryan's size as a kid. Let's be honest, we were all the same size at some point in our lives.

    I'm not sure I agree. I find Bayley boring and Sasha would probably hurt someone with one of her botches.

    The thought of Roman and Jinder clogging the main event scene is just trash.

    They think it will get Roman over, but it will more likely get Jinder over.

    They let Sasha go an hour in the royal rumble and 2 iron man matches, that is clearly not only not a concern but also completely unfounded that she’s hurting people with botches. Given the spots they’ve put Nia Jax and Charlotte in, they’re not concerned about it anyways.

    They have to put the best workers in the match.

    No they’ll just hate both of them and Jinder will get buried

    There's not gonna be MITB matches for each brand right? Just one for the men and one for the women?

    ... And hopefully the winner can challenge for either title and subsequently switch brands?

    I thought the idea was to have one mens and one womens cross-branded when they talked about doing the co-branded PPV going forward. Then there's even a chance of a tag team briefcase match as well...that could be intriguing.

    The tag team one would do great for some teams.

    The revival having that briefcase would be so entertaining

    They are doing a tag team MITB? That's sick. They should do a cruiserweight one as well.

    That’s not confirmed. Speculation only.
