    Yeah, the Undertaker aligning with Vince makes very little sense - aside from the fact he's a company man and Vince has invested a lot in him.
    And that Taker will do anything for Vince. He more than any other superstar wants to give back to the business so he will do whatever is put in front of him (as long as it isnt too OTT or wacky)

    SmackDown was so unremarkable - but Triple H's promo to open the show was great. He really is... that... damn... good.

    I agree. I was growing tired of triple H in recent years but this current run of his is a breath of fresh air compared to the undermining talent we have .

    Such a shame knowing that it could have been Rollins in this match instead of Reigns

    That's the biggest tragedy of this year. Bryan's retirement is sad, and the company will obviously miss Cena and Orton through injury, but Rollins carried RAW for about nine months and deserves to headline the showcase of the year.

    They would've ****ed Rollins up too. He probably would've been champ all year (so he'd get annoying and boring too), lose it at WrestleMania, then Sheamus cashes in and we'd have to deal with him flopping for a few months afterwards instead of last year.

    This.

    Rollins will be such a huge face when he returns. They need to turn Reigns heel before that in an ideal world, but I doubt that will happen.

    This video is getting quite popular, this is basically how I felt when I started noticing Undertakers tombstone where his opponents head was like meters from the ground but he still got the 3 count.

    Reminds me of Sunday Night Heat when he defended against Essa Rios, then another time against Perry Saturn.

    One of his best matches ever, which was a huge surprise, was against Taka Michinoku. It was supposed to be the classic case of HHH booking himself against a light-heavyweight jobber and squashing him, yet they had a proper long (for Raw) 5* match and at times it looked like Taka was gonna win, the crowd were so into it.

    In my WWE watching and still now, the Tombstone was my favourite move and was fascinated by its delivery. Kane's execution is rather poor than his brother's - that WM XX Tombstone was beautiful and Flair (apparently he had a headache as his head did connect with the mat)

    You can never beat the Super Tombstone against Shawn Michaels at WM, personally that's what I call it. Looks dangerous as hell and must have played Havoc on Undertakers knees. Don't think we'll ever see it again.

    Depends how you define it and who you are. If you're Kenny Omega, you're having the time of your life in Japan. Live in Tokyo, big star, buy all the games, manga and anime you can.

    Some aren't interested. Really the only things WWE offers over other promotion is fame and a chance to wrestle at Wrestlemania etc. Also to go against some of the best.

    The young bucks said they're making main roster money and EC3 is having much more success outside WWE.

    I just kinda feel bad for the London promotion wrestling tours, you come out and only about 1/4 of the seats are filled and the kids are just like "who the f*ck is he" "where's my John Cena T shirt from the merchandise stand?"
