    A little bit.

    We do talk like that but the media portray geordies like every 1-2 words has to be a geordie one. We speak with a very balanced mix of normal and geordie words

    And we dont say bruv. Thats to the southerners.

    It's hard to predict a Rumble winner - but final four predictions?

    Wyatt, Reigns, Lesnar, and HHH.

    Big Show's more likely with the way he's been booked recently.

    It's that time of the week again. SmackDown spoilers:

    Spoiler:
    Show

    - Chris Jericho kicked off the show but was interrupted by The New Day, which still blamed Y2J for breaking its trombone. This led to a six-man tag team match pitting Big E, Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods against The Usos and Dolph Ziggler.
    - The Usos and Ziggler def. The New Day.
    - Becky Lynch def. Alicia Fox.
    - "Miz TV" with Dean Ambrose and Kevin Owens was next. The two competitors in Sunday's Intercontinental title bout discussed the match before The Lunatic Fringe delivered Dirty Deeds to The Miz. Not wanting to be one-upped, Owens responded with a Pop-Up Powerbomb to the host.
    - Bray Wyatt def. Ryback.
    - Titus O'Neil def. Stardust.
    - WWE World Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns def. The League of Nations by disqualification in a handicap match. After the bell, The Usos hit the ring to even the odds, but The Wyatt Family attacked to end the show.

    I back Owens/Ambrose to end in a double count-out or no contest personally, so the feud is elongated, and I reckon we could see a Usos victory.

    The Rumble is anybody's guess.

    The Owens/Ambrose match is a last man standing, it'll be the rubber match as I doubt that the feud will continue until WM and it's time to start setting the scene for the event. The rumble has to be HHH tbh, we know Roman is facing him at WrestleMania and I don't think Lesnar will have the strap (otherwise he'd have faced Reigns). They won't want the backlash of consecutive Roman rumbles surely...

    Can see some sort of scenario where they both end up on the deck and neither rises in time to break the count to be honest. Would protect both stars going into WM, because seemingly the company has abandoned Owens facing Lesnar, and Ambrose lacks a decent feud - though, admittedly, Jericho and a returning Orton as heel are decent potentials.

    Agreed, the Wyatt's look dangerous also.

    Watched the final segment of the last raw. Felt it was a very powerful ending and I can't remember the last time Brock was manhandled like that. What does the segment tell us? Reigns is going to lose and Brock is going to destroy the Wyatt's.

    A month ago you tell me WM would be Brock vs Wyatt and I'd say it was the worst idea possible. I can see it working up till fastlane now though.

    This, essentially. WWE allows somebody to end RAW on top, but follows that up with a loss. It happens time and time again, and vice versa. Gives me hope the New Day will hang onto their titles this Sunday.
