Becky wins the Rumble! Which means you know on Smackdown that Charlotte will declare that Becky was never meant to be in match, they’ll go with that storyline. Honestly I think had they gone with Becky being injured and Charlotte being declared winner by default that you could of had that storyline and Becky declaring she never lost, either way good storytelling in that match. Impressed by that American Ninja Warrior contestant, no idea who she is but she looked good. 

 

Also according to betting sites, The Rock has now become third favourite to win, be shocking none the less if he’s appearing tonight.

She was in the Mae Young Classic this year.  She wasn’t too bad, but yeah I enjoyed her in the Rumble as well.

 

This PPV is gonna be pushing 5 hours (7 including pre-show).  That’s way too fucking long.  I gotta get to bed soon lol.

I think a lot were expecting Shayna Baezler.

 

Also Double J in the Rumble! What a surprise

I’m guessing Mania is going to be Lesnar vs Rollins but I would much prefer Rollins vs Byran. The pointless beat down on Balor after the match from Lesnar made me think there’s potential for Demon Balor vs Lesnar at Mania. We all know however that if Rollins does choose Byran, Strowman is getting the match against Lesnar.

Still don’t understand why we didn’t get The Demon last night.  Makes absolutely no sense.  He’ll use it against Corbin in a match that doesn’t even matter, but won’t use it against someone like Lesnar for the title?  So weird.

Well bc he was being booked to lose and they don’t want the Demon persona to lose yet. It makes perfect sense. They could have beefed it up logically a bit by having Balor boast about how he won’t even need the Demon to win or something, but they don’t really do shit with him other than have him smile like a goof.

They could’ve still booked him as the Demon and lose, but still have him look strong.  Whether he gets pissed and uses a weapon, or Brock gets pissed and uses a weapons because he can’t beat him otherwise.  I don’t know.  Something along the lines of that.  Just would’ve made more sense in general.

Those guys are so short term minded with all of their booking, let’s not scoff at one of the few long term plans they have. Some day Demon Balor will lose and it will be a huge deal, why waste it on a part time guy who is already over as a wrecking machine?

Very true.  Just in my mind it made more sense for the Demon to go against him.  That’s all.

It’s not even remotely a huge deal. Having the persona come out once a year at Summerslam to beat Corbin gives the character no real credibility. Let’s face it, they’ve absolutely wasted Balor since his comeback, has probably one of the best fan bases but yet will still get beat down by Lashley every week. Then again do they really care about the fans? Just look at Rusev, gave the guy a title far too late into the whole Rusev Day and then turned him heel? Like where’s the logic?

 

I mean it’s not hard to see why 5/6 members of talent have asked for their release.

I figured the Kofi push was old school wrastling where they push an over babyface to the point where fans think he's going to beat the heel champ and at the last moment the champ somehow squeaks out a wins. But unlike Rick Steiner vs Ric Flair at Clash of the Champions circa mid 90's (the first time I remember noticing that was a concept as a kid), I absolutely LOVED  that 15-20 minutes of Bryan vs. Kofi had to work alone. That was good story telling and it was exciting. I really didn't know who was going to win, even though I suspected it would be Bryan (they customized a belt for his green character after all).
