WWE - Who is hyped!?

  • Bayley's transformation, nice. Was never fan of the hugging and all that. Now we got rid of the Bayley Buddies, too. The title change was a surprise but a good one at that, it fit perfectly to the occasion now.

    Those backroom moments during the draft, so stupid. :D So WWE, could not have been otherwise executed.

    No spotlight for my man Cesaro. Nor for Mandy and Sonya. That ain't right, WWE. A bunch of other names as well were left behind, they'll propably just be assigned to a show on some online list. :/

    Big heel names at the moment Sasha and Bayley are both in the blue brand. I hope they won't pit these two against each other any time soon, as that would most likely mean one of them turning into a face and I much prefer the current situation of these two women. When it comes to the men Lesnar will come face to face with the likes of Reigns, Bryan, Strowman and Wyatt in the near future, it seems.

  • WWE sure is not so good recently.

  • Crown Jewel was pure filler as expected. I went skipping basically through the whole show. The only "whoa" moment was Wyatt winning in the end which means both the big belts are now in SmackDown.

  • Royal Rumble was pretty cool. At least the men's Rumble match itself! That whole Lesnar angle was kind of genius. At first I was like "oh no you didn't" when he threw guys out one after another, but pretty quickly I started to get excited for the whole shtick, like waiting to see if this would really go all the way like that. Luckily it didn't. And McIntyre was basically the perfect guy to knock him over: surprising, but he still made sense in that role, too. This'll be his biggest push now, and about time, too. The man's a great athlete in the ring and he's garnered support and charisma over time. This went right, I feel like.

    Edge's return was cool, too! I mean damn, it's been since 2011 when he left. And he looked great with that grey in his beard. Interesting to see what his role will be.

    The women's match was less exciting, I had hoped for a surprise winner but we got Charlotte. And Sasha wasn't even in it. I guess they'll keep us waiting for the rift between her and Bayley. And that's actually fine, this double-heel pair of theirs works well atm.

  • Sooooooo... Super Showdown happened. I guess it really is WrestleMania season now, I mean I really wouldn't see this happening any other time of the year. What a crappy way to make the Fiend lose his title. To Goldberg all of a sudden. With literally no story here or build-up. And those Spears and the Jackhammer are like otherwordly lethal moves, I guess, because the Fiend has been literally unstoppable so far when it comes to anything else. Oh man, this is just stupid in so many ways.

  • They're just gonna have the Fiend beat Super Cena at Mania just to keep him looking like a threat

  • I hope you watched this SmackDown because it was truly something else entirely. Performance Center, for the empty seats, with Cole and Triple H on the mics. And Hunter had some good and funny shit to say a bunch of times. "I didn't see Asuka emerge from the crowd", "Great promo from Shinsuke" = didn't say a word etc. LOL

    Such a comical sight to see when the men and women came to the ring in all that silence. And then performed in silence, like that women's tag match for instance. If Becky Lynch had been there we all would've heard her shouting out the next moves beforehand, heh.

  • I love that they finally got the Sasha vs. Bayley feud running. Well, not yet running per se, but the whole thing is now in its positions. Sasha with the belt <3 Eventually.

    WrestleMania will be a two-night event now, first time ever. Saturday and Sunday. Must be somehow because of those empty seats without the crowd, to somehow "hide" that fact. ...with some logic. Because we've had superlong events before, like 6 hrs etc. No way this split would have happened without corona.

    Also, these are real in the WWE Shop, heh:
