I was hoping after that dumb speech last night that Cena would take off for a couple months.

Re: The May 2012 Wrestling Thread: Punk vs. Bryan. PPV. That is all.

Quote:
Following the Extreme Rules PPV on Sunday, there was a huge backstage blow-up involving Brock Lesnar.
According to several sources, Lesnar lost it on a number of WWE officials and began ripping apart a dressing room, upset over the John Cena promo that closed the PPV.

The original plan was for Cena, despite winning, to be so beaten that he was carried out of the building, leaving an opening for Lesnar to brag that while he had lost the battle on a fluke, he had won the war.

When Cena decided to address the audience, Lesnar perceived it as Cena double crossing him and lost in on WWE officials. It's not yet known how they calmed him down, but tonight's angle with HHH was planned in advance as a way to remove Lesnar from TV.

Sources within the company have indicated that Lesnar's current deal only requires him to work two dates minimum per month.
well this wont last... but honestly, i can see where lesner is coming from

Re: The May 2012 Wrestling Thread: Punk vs. Bryan. PPV. That is all.

I also understand Lesnar's POV. If I was told things were supposed to go one way, and then they changed them on me, I would be upset as well. Granted, I wouldn't go destroying everything in my path, but I would be peeved. While I hope I am wrong, there is a possibility WWE brought Lesnar back solely for the purpose of humiliating him for the way he left about eight years ago. They know he has no more future in UFC, so they can pretty much screw with him all they want. My guess is that if his contract only requires two dates a month, it will be one Raw broadcast and one PPV appearance. Not much to really build.

I wonder what the Bellas are going to do now? I wouldn't be surprised if they leave the business altogether and pursue other interests. If they wind up on TNA , then that would mean they must have really hit hard times.

If TNA had their way, the Bellas would be world champions by pinning Samoa joa clean

Speaking of Samoa Joe, who was behind his kidnapping around two and a half years ago?

Re: The May 2012 Wrestling Thread: Punk vs. Bryan. PPV. That is all.

So is Lesnar done? I figured this was just a build up to HHH/Lesnar, since they never had a singles feud/match together before...but maybe not.

From the old thread...

SERIOUSLY. She was my favorite before this, too, but now....oh my.

Looks like HHH/Lesnar at Over the Limit, with HHH in a cast, I'm guessing.

And if the point was to embarass the Bellas on the way out, why not feed them to Kharma? It's clearly what people were expecting AND what they wanted at the PPV, and it would have provided closure on the Bellas taunting Kharma right before she had to leave for her pregnancy last year. All this accomplished was to devalue the Divas title even further (if that is even possible) and to make Layla's return underwhelming.
WWE booking at its finest. Makes no sense.

Here's the WWE.com clip of Eve firing the Bellas.

Re: The May 2012 Wrestling Thread: Punk vs. Bryan. PPV. That is all.

from LOP
As we've been reporting here on the site, Brock Lesnar did throw a tantrum backstage after Extreme Rules, f4wonline.com is reporting that it was partially a 'work' on the locker room as a way to convince people that Cena going over was the right decision. Lesnar was upset about the finish, but "some, if not most" of the situation was not entirely legitimate.

WWE tried to have word leak out on Monday that Lesnar had quit the company, likely to get the "dirt sheets" reporting it so people would be surprised when Lesnar showed up on RAW. However, by the time that this was going on, it was already out there that Lesnar was at the arena and going to be at RAW.

^ Crap like this is what Vince Russo thought got ratings in WCW's dying days. It didn't work then, and it won't work now.

That skirt really accentuated Eve's booty.

That's all dumb. Seriously, this isn't 1995, WWE. We know about storylines. Stop trying to work your own employees and the fans.

Re: The May 2012 Wrestling Thread: Punk vs. Bryan. PPV. That is all.

I wouldn't put it past Cena to do that to Lesnar though. Who wants to lose their top spot after all? When I first saw the "speech" on Raw I rolled my eyes because he does that ALL the time after big matches, trying to get fans on his side. It's quite sad.

Especially for a guy that keeps spouting that he doesn't care what the fans think.

And the Bellas changed just to be fired in a video?

He's been missing from WWE tv for the past two Raws, but us here in Chicago have been seeing David Otunga on our nightly news via sketches like these






Very, very sad that this trial is even happening.... but dude, the bowtie there too?

I hope that doesn't mean they've found a videotape of them both...or worse yet, they intend to wrestle again.

Wait, what's going on with Otunga in Chicago and a trial? Is this over Jennifer Hudson's family member being killed from a couple of years ago?

That's what it is. Understandable that he'd be there for his fiancee.
