WWE - Who is hyped!?

  • @A7X458 To be fair, he's billed as an underdog, and he needs to lose lots in his first few years on the main roster for that role to payoff if they plan on putting a belt on him.

  • @DarthAmmii Yeah I agree. I think they are doing a remarkable job with Sami. If they can continue to show some restrain, they can have a truly great moment down the line.

    Anybody else digging Jinder Mahal? I loved him on Smackdown this week. They need to emphasize the "being rich, and more cultural" part of his character though. Don't go to far into the race thing.

  • I can't help but wonder if Jinder is getting a push because he beefed up.

    Don't hinder the Jinder

    JK please make it stop

  • @DarthAmmii i agree but last week fans reaction to his entrance had me worried, but maybe it's was a bad crowd, plus i like what they did this week having his save AJ Styles from KO and Corbin, i like Jinder Mahal but please stop using the race angle.

  • @parasitepaladin They are making a big push into India. They tried it with Khali, so Jinder is massive improvement over that.

    Let's hope that after Summerslam, Jinder is the WWE champion, Slater is the Universal champion and Drew is NXT champion.
    Then 3MB will finally rule the land!

  • @MonsTruz Ohhhh an India push. Okay, that makes complete sense. Shame the rest of the world has to suffer for it. He is much better, though I can't imagine Jinder being more popular than Khali in India. He was Mr. India after all. It just feels unnatural since Jinder wasn't even a midcarder, he was on the bottom and now he is the number one contender OUTTA NOWHERE WITH NO BUILD.

  • That house of horrors sure was odd and underwhelming.

  • @parasitepaladin Watching that sure was one of those moments that woke me up thinking "just wtf am I exactly watching right now?". Laughed out loud at my own reaction then. :D

  • I was really hoping Jinder would appear in the actual house!

    But hey, this was a pretty good ppv! The only match that I didn't care for was The House Of Horrors match.

  • Global Moderator

    They should of given the Hardys the House of horror match. They would of shown them how it is done.

  • I ended up liking the PPV as well otherwise. It was sort of small enough but fresh, too.

    • Jericho's win surprised me the biggest, I think. He's coming to SD now and all?
    • Bliss getting the belt is good, there's room at the top for fresh faces.
    • Tag team match was pretty good. The heel turn is kinda ok, I guess. I mean it gives a new angle for Sheamus & Cesaro. It will just be pretty hard for Cesaro to act like a heel, I feel. The man's just too fitting to be a face.
    • What else? Samoa Joe threw a small botch in there right with the 1-2-3. His shoulder was nowhere near the mat. That just feels like a weird spot to mess it up, but maybe he got confused where they were going or something.
    • Strowman's seriously just great. I mean the way a giant like that can move so smoothly and quickly. The man's an athlete. That post-match beating took me by surprise a little, still. And especially those blood coughs were even pretty nasty.

  • About the Payback PPV:

    The midcard matches saved the show, everything except the house of horror and strowman vs reigns was excellent.

    The House of horror match was so bad, i just want to know who was the genius behind the idea.

  • A way too funny shot. "After the party's over..."

  • Holy hell, is that a Breezango push? Oh am I am SO PUMPED.

  • @Sentinel-Beach Been there.. Unfortunately I look more like Bray, than I do Randy.

  • Popping in again because the fashion files piece was great, again.

  • Strowman's out for six months due to elbow injury and surgery. Really tough news, I mean he's been the one thing that's kept RAW interesting for some time now already. There was clearly a Lesnar match on its way this summer etc. All the momentum is now gone. :[

  • It's was nice to see john cena beats Finn balor on Raw even with an injury, but at least he change his move set.

  • How about that Pete Dunne vs. Tyler Bate match? Holy shit that was great. The UK guys just brings something else to the table, and it's beautiful. Ohh and JR calling the match.. And Bates is 20, and Dunne is 23 years old.
    So far the UK Championship scene has been wonderful.

    I'm also really looking forward to Backlash.
    Styles vs Owens, and Ziggler vs. Nakamura has a lot of potential, plus the tag match could be really good.
    Then there is the train wreck of Jindermania vs. Orton. I think it's going to be a pretty boring match, but damn.. I'm still looking forward to it.

  • Pete Dunne vs Tyler Bate, strong match of the year contender. Backlash was good, I'm curious about Jinder title reign and i should confess that i'm glad that Orton is no longer the champ.
