    Finally, a great raw before Rumble. Totally marked out at Sting, again.

    Lesnar's making a great tweener too. Finished too strong for me to think he's going to retain the title though, which is a shame. I don't want him to leave already
    Feels like last night's made up for the dross of the previous three weeks tbh.

    GREAT to see APA and NWO back in the ring, but The New Age Outlaws vs. The Ascension is a pointless match for the Rumble. Likewise, the Uso vs. Miz/Mizdow storyline has grown stale now and both teams would be wise to move on from each other.

    That said, the Lesnar/Rollins/Cena angle was perfectly executed. Made a nice change to hear Lesnar talk more, and Heyman's "adults" jibe at Rollins was hilarious. I can still see Heyman back-stabbing Lesnar and aligning with Rollins at the Rumble, and I hope it happens, because their promos would be mind-blowing.

    Great to see Sting, too. That's two of his six scheduled appearances down! Will we see another at the Rumble?

    Lesnar being anything but strong would be against his character. Cena is at SuperCena level now from what I know he's done in the past two weeks at the least. If he pins Brock (God forbid he make him submit, to the STFU of all things), Brock's gonna look human again.

    Maybe it'll just get more convoluted for February if Cena wins but by beating Rollins, thus a rematch between Brock/Cena where Cena wins clean then Rollins cashes in to end the feud and go on to face the Rumble winner. Makes the most sense to end it at the last PPV before WrestleMania, unless they pull some BS like Cena loses but then wins the Rumble.

    It definitely makes the most sense for Lesnar to hold onto the belt and lose it at Mania, but I am hoping for a Heyman double-cross and Rollins to go to WM as the champion somehow.

    Cena needs to be kept away from the belt. He should be in a programme with Rusev for WM31 imo.

    It's nice to have so many variables for once. As well as the three-way, there's the MITB contract, Sting, Orton, and the Rumble winner. Makes things less predictable hopefully. Assuming for the next few months we don't get...

    Forgot about Orton. Makes sense to put him feuding with Rollins upon his return. Rollins vs. Reigns vs. Orton for the title would be a fresh feud and decent watch.

    Wonder what the long-term plans are for Bryan. He's preoccupied with Kane right now, and it doesn't look like he'll be winning the Rumble if Vince plumps for Reigns, and he can't face HHH if Sting's on the scene.

    Wyatt is lacking a feud, too.

    The long-awaited Bryan vs Sheamus III at WrestleMania, then next WrestleMania have Bryan vs Sheamus IV, then more Bryan vs Sheamus. And all the matches are either dark or 18 seconds long.

    If at any point Sheamus gets injured, he'll be replaced with Kane for Kane vs Bryan III. If Bryan gets injured, he'll be replaced with Orton for Orton vs Sheamus XXXVIII. If both get injured, Triple H will pull double duty and book himself against one of the other biggest names they have in a triple main event in which he's in two of them. Or failing that, just add a 20-minute promo where he talks about himself.

    He's being handed losses left, right and centre, too.

    Good to see him pick up a win over BNB last night.

    Would be surprised if he didn't host it.

    Whilst it's good that WM is pretty exclusive to stadiums these days with WWE's popularity, I can't help but think it would be great to host another Mania in MSG. Nothing says Mania like Madison Square Garden.
