Just read a rumour that the E is thinking of moving Reigns to Smackdown. This is one of those times that "Dear God, No", meme pics entirely describe my reaction to that rumour.

This is the fourth year in a row they've attempted the coronation of Reigns as top guy. Why can't they understand that getting over cannot be forced?

Honestly, the only match I really care about at WM is Seth v HHH. Seth has been my favorite talent for years, and I think this match with HHH is going to be the next major step in his legacy as a top talent.

AJ v Shane might be neat, depending on how they set it up. I will assume that this week's Smackdown will elaborate upon what kind of match it will be. I'm hoping for a weapons match.

I wonder, now that Balor is back in action, whether he'll be on WrestleMania or even get back into the Universal Title picture?

Oh, he will, but he's going to have to beat Brock to win it. Babyfaces don't win titles via fuckery, which is pretty much the only way to beat Brock without being Bill Goldberg.

Raw was horrible. It's the go home show before WM so naturally they fill the time with tons of recaps and some bad matches. Also, more ramming the message in that Roman can't POSSIBLY beat Taker (he will). How many times is WWE going to coronate this dude?

Thank god we got the announcement that Cornette himself will be inducting the Rock and Roll Express into the HOF, or today would just be another 100% garbage day for the WWE.

Oh, and the Paige sex tape scandal. facepalm.gif

The Hall of Fame this year will be worth watching just because Cornette will be there.

I wonder how Smackdown will turn out, but unless I've got my dates wrong, isn't there 1 more week of TV before WrestleMania?

Raw was a solid 6/10 tonight. This is heavily rumored to be Taker's last outing, and the way they're booking it is truly awful. He's been given a shallow, two week build against Reigns culminating in an awkward promo tonight with an uninterested crowd. It's a bad situation: if Reigns wins, he gets booed out of the building for retiring Taker. If Reigns loses, he gets booed out of the building for a shitty storyline and failing to protect "his yard" once again. Great! At least he hinted at a heel turn tonight, and his end of the promo was actually pretty good.

Seth has to beat HHH or the 2015 Authority storyline will keep going. I hope they give us another spot with Stephanie getting killed by an errant attack.

Where did Samoa Joe go? He was booked to be this badass muscle for HHH, killed Zayn at Fastlane, then did absolutely nothing since.

Goldberg has done everything except blatantly state that his match at WM33 will be his last. He doesn't even seem to care. Why does anybody want this match? Heyman can barely sell this match as anything remotely important, probably because WWE has destroyed any importance in the title via terrible booking and weak champions.

Women's match? Don't care. Bayley took the title on FREE TV, when it would have made far more sense to have her win it at WM33. Now it's just a title defense, in a goddamn fatal four way. Odds on it going right back to Charlotte? 141 2/3%, and Bayley's chance at winnin' "drastic go down". It sure as shit isn't going to Nia, unless Vince has totally lost his marbles.

If this will truly be Taker's last match, what a crappy way to end his career, they should've gone with Cena at the very least. It still bugs me that they didn't bother with putting a Sting vs Taker on WrestleMania instead of what we got, Triple H vs Sting.

At least from the RAW side WrestleMania sucks, Smackdown is at least way better.

Is it, though? They've killed Bray's character enough that the big title match doesn't have much weight. I love Orton, but he plays very safe and has a routine for main event matches. Without somebody seriously pushing him to do something crazy, it's going to be just another Orton match.

AJ v Styles could be cool, but it's going to be leaning heavily on AJ pulling the best out of Shane, which isn't going to be much.

Tag and Women's titles? I don't even follow them anymore. Usos don't even have a match scheduled (which will change tonight). Alexa, who I like, is shuffled into essentially a royal rumble match, diluting the championship. BOTH WOMEN'S MATCHES ARE AT LEAST A FATAL FOUR WAY. This booking is garbage for the sake of having as many bodies in the ring as possible. I have no problem with Vince paying them big money for WM appearances, but I'd rather he do it with some solid booking instead of just throwing everybody in.

The cruiserweight title is now booked to be on the fucking PRE SHOW. Neville and Austin Aries, two of the best cruiserweights on the planet, are demoted to pre show. Remember that last year, that spot went to fucking Ryback.

Man, I remember that, wasn't Ryback even wearing something on his trunks how he's Mr. Pre Show or something....?

I wonder whether they will stick with Wyatt as Champ or whether they'll have Orton pick it up?

Orton as champ doesn't do anything for WWE. He's already been champ many times. It's good booking to have Wyatt go over Orton, to strengthen the title and Wyatt.

Ambrose is facing Corbin for the IC title, and I hope Ambrose wins. Corbin is not ready at all for a title run. He's had a year of basically nothing happening for him. Putting a title on him isn't going to help. He needs more seasoning in the midcard.

Just ran across this earlier, I got to admire WWE and their stance on Roman Reigns:

QUOTE
On fan reaction to Roman Reigns: “People can look at Roman Reigns and say, ‘The failed attempt that is Roman Reigns,’ but Roman Reigns sells tickets,” said Levesque. “Roman Reigns gets one of the loudest reactions every night, whether that reaction is a boo or whether that reaction is a cheer. The fans who say, ‘I don’t understand why they don’t turn Roman Reigns heel!’ Isn’t he already? If you believe what you believe, and you’re saying, ‘How can they not turn him heel? There is 70 percent of the crowd booing him out of the building!’ If that’s your belief, then isn’t he already the biggest heel we have? If 70 percent of that crowd is booing him, then he’s a heel. We’re just presenting him to you in a different way that makes you hate him.”

I have a very hard time trusting much of anything Paul says. He can say super great shit but it's meaningless when the booking goes in the opposite direction. "Alternative storytelling" is a garbage explanation for Reigns' angle.

What do you think of those sketches WWE has done with The Miz and Maryse? I think they're comedy gold and although it's obvious he is not walking out of WrestleMania with the W, I wish it'd turn out differently.

I think it's leading into a very stupid match. The angle was demolished when Nikki dropped a horrendous promo on Talking Smack.
