    Let's be fair, if you're a wrestler and not in WWE or Japan, you're nowhere.
    Unless you got on the TNA gravy chain that paid for your retirement.

    But that's just cashing a cheque. They don't do it for the love of the industry, or business, or whatever. That's just another day job to them. I think wrestling - I refuse to call it sports entertainment - is about the love of getting in that ring every night and competing.

    If we see Kevin Owens against Big Show at WM32, I'm pretty sure I'll lose my ****.

    Ryback going for a heel turn is smart, because the guy is in desperate need of freshening up. They need to hit the button soon, though, and give him a decent programme for Mania. I wouldn't mind seeing him go up against Kalisto, personally. He's stuck right now tagging with Sin Cara, but he's got a secondary championship and needs to showcase it. I've seen enough of the Lucha Dragons against the League of Nations.

    Ambrose and Triple H's blossoming feud is interesting. Obviously, with Lesnar absent, they need to keep Dean busy. I wonder if the company are edging towards a triple threat type scenario though. Or maybe Ambrose pulling double duty at Mania? That would be a bit of a carbon copy of the Bryan storyline, and I'm not sure how they can make it realistic given the fact Lesnar will likely dismantle and destroy Ambrose earlier on in the night.

    As for the Undertaker/Shane O'Mac feud... it wasn't explained/developed very well. Why is Taker siding with Vince? Stephanie's promo was on a whole different level, though.

    Watched the Undertaker bit and all I'm getting so far is Vince swerves and helps Shane beat Taker and the McMahon family rule together.

    Wouldn't exactly be the first time Vince McMahon talked (in hindsight) complete *******s in the buildup, Vince screwed a mega face at WrestleMania, and a McMahon inevitably turned heel.

    It also allows Shane to soon **** back off and give Triple H and Taker a feud and match after getting their WM payday, if they want.

    I don't understand why they're getting Dean involved with HHH, if he has a feud with Lesnar.

    Because Lesnar's not around every week, and it gets good crowd reactions and some heat for Hunter. Ambrose hyping the street fight at WM every week would be boring. That aside, it was probably a one off to try and re-establish Trips as a heel, and to cover for Reigns being absent. The title being defended at that crap house show sucks as well, could've at least done it on RAW and then had Lesnar intervene ffs.

    Triple H's ego has ****ed up a few potential WM matches and feuds.

    The only way I'm gonna like this is if every major match (Lesnar/Ambrose, HHH/Reigns, Taker/Shane) is connected in a way we won't see until the night.

    Nothing beats the time he was put over against Booker T after spending the whole feud being borderline racist.

    Undertaker confirmed for Smackdown in London! It could be his last one in London!

    I had only enough money for a high up smackdown ticket and I was just watching the "Undertaker returns to London" video hoping it was gonna be raw and smackdown and then it said Smackdown and I went hysterical.

    I'm lit right now.

    SmackDown was decent, despite the lack of action. A two-hour show really flies in comparison to the ever-long RAW and mundane promos of Monday nights.

    Owens deserves to be doing something better at WM32 than fighting Big Show.

    I liked it, :/

    Kevin Owen vs Neville featuring Sami and Y2AJ vs new day were amazing.

    All the jobbers also fought over pizza after the show ended.

    I thought RAW was surprisingly good.

    Shane O'Mac and Vince's exchange was brilliantly crafted once again. The latter is the finest heel in the company's history, but they need to act swiftly to give credit to Undertaker's stance as pro-Vince and his willingness to do the Authority's bidding.

    Kevin Owens is a monster heel, too, and Sami Zayn's ascension to the main roster comes at the perfect time. Owens needs a decent opponent for the Intercontinental Championship, and the duo will have a stellar WM32 match.

    Elsewhere, the teasing of the Bray Wyatt and Triple H match for future was so sensible. I loved that. That feud NEEDS to happen at some stage for sure. The company would be incredibly foolish (more so than usual) not to act on that and build a programme around it. The crowd reaction was off the charts.

    I could have done without the Ziggler vs. League of Nations match, given the fact that all characters involved are so stale at this point. For Barrett's last few months, I want him to break away from a faction and have some really decent matches injury-free. He doesn't need to be in a championship picture, but he deserves to be in the mid-card putting over babyfaces and having a decent feud.

    Ryback and Kalisto is a fresh match-up, but why is Ryback so anti the little guys? That schtick was what the company tried to put on Sheamus, and it didn't work. We need more overt heel tactics from Ryback to fully invest.

    Speaking of which... Chris Jericho is a master of the heel turn. He knows the ring so well, and has great chemistry with AJ Styles. I'm looking forward to their feud and WM32 match. Jericho is great at the psychology of wrestling, and though the heel turn was inevitably, it was brilliantly executed.

    The New Day need decent challengers at this point. With Kalisto having the US Championship, the Dudley Boyz pre-occupied with the Usos, I'd actually be tempted to throw two mid-carders together as a tag-team, or call somebody up from NXT.

    Pretty excited for Roadblock, to be honest.

    based on rumour about return of split brand, I would say shane as I would like to see him descend from babyface to heel .

    Taker is likely to win however but wouldn't be surprised fi there is any interference

    WM33 to be held at Orlando.

    The wait for a Wembley PPV continues.

    It will be the second WrestleMania hosted in Orlando after WrestleMania XXIV in 2008.
