    I've recently kind of gotten into WWE, went to raw a couple weeks ago in Anaheim (worst episode ever..)
    Sami is definitely my favorite. Anyone want to make predictions for Summerslam?

    I went to Raw here in Atlanta about 2.5 weeks ago. First WWE I went to in over 20 years. It was fun, but man do the commercial breaks kind of ruin the live experience sometimes.

    I saw NXT live as well, in the same venue WCW used to do their Saturday shows back in the day. Show was great, but not as fan-involved as I would have hoped (telling us to not go to the barrier during the match, for example).

    Have you ever checked out any other wrestling promotions? Ring of Honor, New Japan Pro Wrestling, Pro Wrestling Guerilla, etc?


    Brock Lesnar has a more difficult time murdering Randy Orton but does eventually end up murdering him

    Seth Rollins wins the title so he can eventually fight Roman Reigns

    Dean Ambrose retains

    Cena beats Styles because Cena always wins all his feuds

    Rusev retains by some bullshitty reason

    Sasha retains

    New Day loses because WWE wants to mix things up with the Club and put them higher up the food chain and honestly, the New Day doesn't need the titles to be popular

    Enzo Amore and Big Cass beat JeriKO

    The Miz retains against Apollo Crews because Crews might be an amazing wrestler but his character is just not there

    Cesaro beats Shamus, hope they have big things in store for him

    Carmella/Becky Lynch/Naomi beat Natalya, Eva Marie and Alexa Bliss

    WWE 2K16 is one of the free games with Gold on Xbox this month and I hopped on that shit so fast. Trained to become a wrestler about 3 years ago, but that program is DAMN expensive. I'll just have to build a ring in my backyard someday and be one of THOSE people....Wish I could have stuck with it.

    @kid_miracleman: I agree with all of those predictions, with the exception of Cena>Styles. You're probably right, but I kinda hate Cena so I want AJ to forearm the shit out of him.

    @MisterYuck: Wrestling training sounds awesome! I'm sure its really pricey though

    Been loving the Cruiser Weight Classic on the WWE network. Wasn't familiar with a lot of these, guys, but there have been some amazing matches. NXT has been great. but the main roster took a lot of people over the ast few months. I think Saturday's NXT Takeover will lay the groundwork for the next crop of people.

    Raw live does suck. The commercial breaks do ruin everything. I was huge into wrestling till the age of 16 then got out but got back into it about 4 years ago because of my best friend started to get into it. I really don't follow anything else. I'm hoping PWG has a show during dcon. Maybe we can get a group together to go to a show.
    I'm also a huge bray Wyatt guy. If I was booking I would have him as champ and have him hold the belt for ten years then retire.
    Summerslam predictions
    Sasha wins
    Miz wins(sad this could of been great but been wasted)
    Cesaro I guess but why are they fighting?
    Enzo and Big Cass and you can't teach that.
    Eva Maria is suspended which makes me upset I wanted to see her entrance live.
    Dean wins
    I can see Seth or Finn win. Could be amazing match
    For some reason I can see Orton winning.
    I'm really hoping for a bray attack on dean or Orton, and at least one more swerve.

    Not gonna lie....I really wish NJPW was more prevalent here in the states. Their merch game is strong.

    For anyone unaware... El Rey Network has uploaded many of their Lucha Underground matches online on Youtube. I'm currently binging. Watched several of the first episodes when the show first aired, then got rid of cable due to cost. Fortunately my xbox suffices right now it seems. So good! Luchaaaa!

    Massive NJPW fan here! I watch a few other promotions from time to time and am on and off with WWE because I don't really have the time to follow everything. August has been insane!! Finished watching an Incredible G1 last weekend and now I've got both BOTSJ and Takeover Brooklyn 2 later today/tonight, then Summerslam tomorrow (day ahead here in NZ)

    so Summerslam was a massive letdown and honestly I think I expected a lot more from Takeover with that main event, guess I was just spoilt with the G1 being so damn incredible.

    So they actually gave up on Bray for good?
    What a waste.

    Looks like you got your wish. ;) Hell, it was my wish as well, I just wasn't expecting Cena to lose. But then again, he's going to film some TV show I think so there is a good possibility he comes back all riled up and squashes AJ. :/

    I was most familiar with Cedric Alexander from his work in ROH. I first got into ROH January of last year going to my first house show ever and having never seen a ROH TV show/PPV. He was good then, then he turned heel and became very good and now that he cut weight he's GREAT.


    Does Orton bleeding out like a stuck pig count as a swerve? ;)

    Their deal with ROH was pretty cool initially, but it quickly devolved into turning ROH guys into glorified jobbers against NJPW with no on-going storylines. But it looks like over the last couple of months ROH is correcting the ship. I love wrestling, but if it was pure exhibition I'd pass. I watch professional wrestling because it's professional wrestling: take out the drama and it's enjoyable, but not long-term IMO.

    I only saw clips of the G1. It's nuts, but I was getting a little tired of how predictable the endings were. Attempted finish, reversal, finisher with immediate follow-up finisher, 1-2-3. But Kenny Omega winning? That I was NOT expecting and couldn't be happier. May the rocket they shove up Omega's ass boost him to the moon.

    I've been watching Raw, or should I say, trying to. Shit like Titus O'Neil's borderline "The Room" remake, it's just...I don't know, not good and way too fucking long. I need to just give it up and switch to Smackdown.

    Dat Miz/Daniel Bryan promo on Talking Smack O_O

    Just watched some deathmatch videos on a "MuttonAndTheHam" youtube channel......................... I don't think I can eat lunch now. There's a scissors match with a company called "Freedoms". Dude gets thrown down onto a board covered in open scissors. Legit went like 2 inches into his back. I'm gonna be sick.

    Not gonna lie - RAW was really good. Can't wait to see what KO will do (well, what they'll let him do)! He is by far the best they have right now when you consider in ring and mic skills.

    Also - Bray going for the Smackdown title?! I just hope they let him win one feud in his live!

    I will also enjoy some German indie wrestling this wekend! GWF! Can't wait!

    I'm predicting Undertaker wins, then challenges Cena (who will have won earlier in the night)

    I really REALLY wanted to sign up for NJPW World as it's probably my favorite promotion going right now, but I dunno.... I just feel like I won't be getting enough out of it. I do need to support NJPW in some way though. Between Tiger Mask W, Bullet Club and BUSHI, NJPW really is a beautiful thing.

    Sounds plausible - why bring him back if not to get him a spot at mania within one match.
    I am curious as to how they will handle the Lessnar-Goldberg thing. I guess the Rumble is so star crowded this year, they can use those two for at least a dozen eliminations without making the eleminated fighters look weak. Then the teased situation with those two and the Taker?!
    I am still hoping for a surprise here - Balor could come back, Samoa Joe or Nakamura would be even better.
    Though Nakamura needs to show off his entrance for an introduction to the WWE main crowd to really make an impression.
    Isn't Angle coming back for at least a short time?
    I am also afraid that HHH will once again spoil a main event.

    I find wrestling fascinating but have no interest in watching it regularly or keeping up with the soap opera. I saw a clip from a .jp promotion about a year ago where someone was supposed to drop the title but decided to go off script & break their opponent's face instead. The ref totally loses control of the match, its pretty brutal. Here it is, for your viewing pleasure.
