The Triple H vs Cena match looked like it was in slow motion.

While watching I was sorry to hear about the late great Sgt Slaughter.

Oh man. Do we really now have to do Reigns v Lesner 4 or can we finally put this feud to rest?

Seems like he's still alive and that was a Cole flub.

Oy, Bryan is first out. He was my pick. I guess if you want to make a moment, have him outlast all 50 but I don't see that now. Probably some Big Cass shenanigans.

I know. I just was confused when he said he was dead. When did that happen?

The problem with a 50-Man Rumble, is that half of them are nobodies.

Re: The 2018 Pro Wrestling Thread.

I've always wondered why somebody just doesn't come down, take a chair and sit ringside until the final person is in there. Orrrr, better yet, just don't come out. Wait until the "winner" walks out of the ring and then step into the ring.

Wow, what a pop for Orton. I think SA is back in 2004.

Re: The 2018 Pro Wrestling Thread.

This is one of the best booked Royal Rumbles ever. Braun won, like he should and Daniel Bryan was almost the winner, like he should, and now builds up to his feud with Cass. Jericho looks a little out of shape, but I imagine the band tour hasn't let him work out like he used to. Still, the MVP of this Rumble was Titus O'neal. I think his entrance supplanted The Shockmaster as the biggest blooper ever.

By the way, where the hell was Sami Zayn? Did any other big name on the roster miss the rumble?

Re: The 2018 Pro Wrestling Thread.

I thought Zayn and Owens were (kayfabe) fired? Did they come back already?

I can't believe they replayed it a dozen times, laughing their asses off. Usually when someone screws up, they act like it didn't happen.

They were, came back for a try out on RAW to fight against each other. Went to a draw so they didn't get hired by Angle but then Stephanie overturned it and hired them both in Superstar Shakeup.

Doesn't explain where Zayn was in Rumble, though.

You have to believe Vince is in the back laughing his ass off telling them to reply the shit out of it. More Karma for that little hug he tried to give the boss back in 2016.

I thought it was bloated junk. It was only good for the last 15 minutes. The first 60 minutes was filled with jobbers.

Geez, they can't let the ramifications of a "you're fired" match linger for even a few weeks? I thought we'd at least get an El Generico sighting.

Well, if we want to use wrestling logic, they were "fired" on Smackdown.

The scuttlebutt is b/c he's a Muslim of Syrian descent.

Thought some of the guys should have pulled double duty in the Rumble. Too many guys that the crowd didn't know at all. It was mentioned before, but that has to be the biggest pop Orton has gotten in years.

So was that Titus thing a work or a shoot? Either way, that's going to be his new gimmick.
