    Vince, HHH, whoever, won't learn from their mistakes. Any other company, like we see with TNA, they'd be killing themselves. But they're rich, they're booking for themselves. They don't get how this works. This is why they'll never get my money.

    Booing PPVs, silent WrestleMania main events. WWE is definitely dead. Why do you guys still watch this? It's like WCW now.

    Can someone give me a quick explanation as to why the winner is being booed? Even past heels got cheered when they won, is this something behind the scenes or..?

    Partly because the fans aren't fussed about Reigns any more, his time came and went, but they've pushed him to higher than he should. This is just what happens when you book whoever rather than keep your finger on the pulse of what makes money and the fans happy.

    The other part is just how the match went, the psychology of it and how it works the crowd. They inadvertently booked the entrants and eliminations in an order that would get the most boos, thinking it'd be cheered.

    There was so much promise in that Rumble match. Vince is more stubborn than LvG. 3-5-2 = big muscly guys.

    Thanks As soon as the goat like bloke, Bryan, got eliminated the crowd and even the commentary team just ran out of stuff to talk about and began to reminisce about old times. And then the Kane and Big Show set up, how bloody boring. The same set pieces since 2005, just without the superstars to mask the stale nature of it now.

    If you look at the entrants, WWE have a ton of stars, but WWE won't let them be stars. There's a lot of guys who would be believable World champs. Of the entrants, Bray Wyatt, Daniel Bryan, Ryback, Barrett, Cesaro and Ziggler could all win the title tomorrow and fans would believe it, but Vince, HHH and Steph wouldn't. They're too small, or too friendly backstage, or too foreign, or, get this, too popular with the fans.

    What a terrible rumble, simply one of the worst PPVs WWE have put out. Just dire, And the crowd reaction to Bryans elimination......that just killed it completely

    Terrible, terrible Rumble.

    It's actually getting better reviews than I thought - which is shocking. I thought it would be panned by the critics.

    The triple threat match was great - don't think it was overkill. Booked so well. Rollins is legit the best heel in the company, he's an absolute ****ing star, and the thing is, when he eventually turns face and goes back to his high flying Shield antics, he'll become even greater in the eyes of the fans. He went toe-to-toe with two of the biggest stars in WWE history and held his own. What a year he has had.

    Lesnar is a machine. He's such a better WWE superstar than UFC fighter. He shouldn't go anywhere if he's sensible.

    Reigns winning the Rumble was just totally underwhelming, and sadly inevitable. I watch WWE still because I always think it'll learn its lesson - but it never does. I'm like a beaten up wife going back to their drunk husband FFS.

    Bryan going so early was just nonsensical, and the final four was SUCH a poor booking decision. Glad that Rusev/Wyatt had strong showings and are in for big years - and the Rock's return was sensible to be paired off against Rusev, considering his next logical feud will probably be Cena at Mania.
