Re: The 2019 Pro Wrestling Thread

Granted he was facing a can with a 1-1 record, he looked pretty good. Absorbed a big punch. His fundamentals were all there. I think he's gonna be an interesting prospect.

Side note I thought he was destined for big things in wrestling when he first made waves in WWE. As a pro wrestler he had a lot of talent. Another guy I don't think got a fair shot.

So if the results of Takeover tell us anything it's that Undisputed Era are getting called up at the Rumble (ugh) along with Black and Ricochet. All will get lost in the shuffle and pretty much all of them are too good for the current main roster booking.

With the Rumble taking place tonight, who do you think will win the Men's and Women's Royal Rumble matches?

I have Charlotte winning the Women's rumble and even though I want Drew Mcintyre to win and face Brock, I feel that Seth Rollins is going to win.

I read around some rumored surprises and there's one that if it happens, I imagine it will piss the shit out of people in the back who were not on the show.

Re: The 2019 Pro Wrestling Thread

Wrote this in last year's thread, but you want a mega-pop you have Jax dominate ala Kane for a bit of a stretch then, fresh after a loss to Auska (due to either Flair or Rhonda shenanigans) Becky shows up, cleans Jax's clock and tosses her out. Lynch wins the thing, they do the who you going to face thing like they did last year, she beats on Rhonda. Mania Money!

As for means, errrr, Santino.

Is Nakamura on his way out? I mean, he was the Rumble winner last year and now he's relegated to the pre-show. WTF?!?

Becky Lynch seems to be having issues with her zipper and her tits keep popping out

Re: The 2019 Pro Wrestling Thread

Seriously, Becky Lynch is the hottest wrestler that WWE has today and what does Vince does? Makes her tap out at the Rumble. Stone Cold never had this shit happen once he got hot. Only way she gets redeemed would be by winning the Rumble

Wait, WHAT? Time to rewind.

I like them having Asuka beat Lynch only if that means she's going to come back and win the Rumble.

Hummm, didn't expect Becky to go over clean in a submission but, damn, that final stretch was amazing. I am thinking she may Bret Hart this...lose in opening classic and come back to rule the evening...

Re: The 2019 Pro Wrestling Thread

Loved some of the spots in that banks Rhonda match.
-Punching out the screen on the post
-Using wardrobe as a protective sling then using it in submission
-Both working on injured arms
-Rhonda having to deal out a pinfall win because she couldn't make Banks tap

Lots of good storytelling there.

Re: The 2019 Pro Wrestling Thread

Just remembered Lana got “injured” on the kick off show, so Becky will probably take her spot

Don't think they named the full 30, though, right, so room for some surprises.

Re: The 2019 Pro Wrestling Thread

This has been trending to a triple threat at Mania since Becky got more over than they could have possibly foreseen. The question is how they get Charlotte in the match now. Does she complain that Becky wasn't even the Rumble? Or do they just let her win a spot at elimination chamber?

Yup, they managed to make Becky look weak. She came in late and laid in the ring for most of her time in there. I thought she was legit injured after that top rope drop kick.

Charlotte complains that Becky wasn’t supposed to
be part of the Rumble, wins the elimination chamber and we have a triple threat

Re: The 2019 Pro Wrestling Thread

By the way, Zelina Vega coming in as Vega from Street Fighter II was pretty awesome.

i feel bad for the wrestlers in the later matches. These big 4 PPV are going too long
