Re: The 2018 Pro Wrestling Thread.

Enzo Amore has been suspended by WWE after being accused of rape
http://www.wwe.com/article/enzo-amor...?sf179957021=1





I think he will be fired after this. He's hated backstage and as seen on the shoot interview with Corey Graves, Enzo is a huge douchebag.

In other news, according to Randy Orton's wife, Randy has been taken off tonight's RAW. She's is extremely pissed about it and I imagine Randy is too, as there is no reason why he should be off this huge event.

Urgh. Celebrating the history of RAW, going back to a classic moment of Foley winning the title and they insert a cutaway to random crowd during Austin chairshot.

Damn PG era!

Damn, if the breaking glass doesn't still get to me...and Vince selling Shane out to Austin. Call me a mark, but I was laughing.

It was awesome...how he ran himself down as much older now. You knew the stunner was coming but damned if they didn't make you wait for it.

You know, it's really weird seeing the classic Manhattan Centre setting with all these people holding up cell phones. It's like some strange limbo between two realities. Great scott!

I swear I saw Vladimir before UT came out. He was a little heavier but it looked just like him.

Yeah, once upon a time a finisher kick out was shocking...now it's just kind of expected in any title match

One more step towards the Mania main event we all knew was happening if we want it or not.

Jeff Hardy sighting. Thankfully, he's not drinking any of those APA beers.

Apparently there;'s clips floating around right now of the people at the Manhattan Center chanting "REFUND!"

Love the heat Jason Jordan gets. Not sure there has been a tag team that gets split fan reaction.

First time I remember seeing this and I like it. Jordan needs to keep playing the naive, tone deaf babyface.

By the way, they turned the lights off for Bray but not Taker? What's up with that?!?

Re: The 2018 Pro Wrestling Thread.

Not sure how I feel about the production of the Manhattan Center stuff. I feel like they should have just done it all there in a retro feel kinda way. I know it doesn't hold all that much compared to arenas, but it's kinda MEH

Re: The 2018 Pro Wrestling Thread.

So far this Raw has been as much disappointment as the 10th, 15th, and 20th Anniversary shows. It's again, a by the numbers show without any true surprises. Even worse, the PG part has taken the heart out of the product. I'm not asking for T&A, but I would love if things were less scripted and more surprises.

Re: The 2018 Pro Wrestling Thread.

Only thing that would surprise me, really, is if Hogan showed up. Maybe CM Punk
