Re: The 2016 Pro Wrestling Thread

Thought the Kalisto/ryback match was a good outing. I read that there was an all staff wwe meeting where it was stressed that kickoff matches should not be considered lower than prime time. Though you'd be hard pressed to say that those two got their 'wrestlemania moment'. Still, you could tell they wanted to put on something worth while and had some nice spots. Ryback is strong af, too bad he's got no personality.

10 divas match. Single handedly making Dallas/ft. Worth tanning salons profitable.

So I didn't miss the Andre battle royal? I thought that might be pre show.

Re: The 2016 Pro Wrestling Thread

I'm not really sure what to say about Ryder winning the IC title. I get it, it's a feel good story but his last feel good story amounted to nothing. I'm trying my best not to shit on it but it's hard.

Yeah a Ryder win would have been better a few years ago. Now? Meh

Should have given it to Zayn.

Zayn win after Friday's match would have been a perfect welcome to the big show full time for him. Still don't fully understand where they're going with ZR.

It's getting weirder and weirder. There is no where for Jericho to go from here and with this loss I guess no where for Styles either.

I'm at Wrestlemania! I don't even watch wrestling anymore. But Nostalgia got the best of me plus I kind of know wtf is going on thanks to youtube. Paid for a front row seat and holy shit are these things fucking expensive as fuck.

Re: The 2016 Pro Wrestling Thread

When Stone Cold, HBK, and Foley were facing down League of Nations, and they were being mocked for being 1 man short ...

was I the only one who was positive that would be a cue for Rocks music to hit?

Ambrose hits Lesnar with a laptop from the announcing table. Random fan shouts out: "I hope you backed up."

Re: The 2016 Pro Wrestling Thread

Yeah I'm glad an up and comer like Jericho got a big mania win. Sigh. Sad to see AJ getting the Sting treatment.

Definitely expected Rock to come out. Great to see stunners and Steve-wisers again.

This is like a bad episode of "Thursday Thunder" so far.

Re: The 2016 Pro Wrestling Thread

For fuck's sake ... it's like they went out of their way to have every single match have the least satisfying ending possible. Like we haven't seen Flair interfering to help Charlotte win over and over again for months on end. Fuck this company

Pretty much guarantees the show end with Roman winning booked as a giant face ... only to be booed by 100,000 as the show goes off the air. And now the Network stream is starting to crap out on me too.

Re: The 2016 Pro Wrestling Thread

The women's match was pretty good. The ending was stupid.

With all the hype about how the women's division is finally getting taken seriously, they should have had a clean ending for the first championship match.

Just now getting to sit down with my son and watch ... Undertaker vs. Shane McMahon? I'm not sure if this is Wrestlemania or a new episode of "Joes Vs. Pros."

Re: The 2016 Pro Wrestling Thread

Solid Snake -- curious to know, how much and how did you get it? I would have guessed they sold out a long time ago.

From what I heard, they were really struggling to sell those last 20-30 thousand tickets.

Re: The 2016 Pro Wrestling Thread

Either this goes long or the Andre battle royal is a 5 minute clusterfuck

Fully expect the latter ... probably with some useless winner like Big Show or Kane

OK, that's the first match whose ending made sense.

So, is the mystery of what Rock's been cooking now over?

Re: The 2016 Pro Wrestling Thread

So is the Rock going to talk for 10 minutes, 10 minutes of entrances for HHH and RR ... then Reigns will win the title in seconds with a single Superman punch and the show goes off the air

Throw in a Rock match that lasts for 6 seconds.
