    Reigns vs Cena would actually be interesting.

    I doubt Taker is retiring this year either, especially after he's said he's going to be around more. He wants the big 25 at WM so..

    WWE have created this plastic character around Roman Reigns, which obviously never works. In reality he is a cool guy! Very charismatic in his own way. If creative let him be then he would be far more over. The company have issues when it comes to guy getting themselves over, take Zack Ryder for instance.

    Ryder was a jobber on Superstars for an entire two year spell, made a YouTube channel and got over from there. IMO the company were probably seething that he did it alone. Same goes for CM Punk, he got over himself. Yes they laid upon the success but they did not like the fact Punk did it alone. That's why they showed a lot of spite towards him.

    Roman Reigns SHOULD be over, easily. But WWE have an issue and they are content on creating a generic wrestler literally programmed by them.

    Reigns was fine as his character in the Shield.

    Things started to get rocky with Reigns when WWE turned him babyface, and reports began to leak about WWE officials being high on him. From there, entitled wrestling fans turned on Reigns, and the hardcore contingent continues to resent his push.

    So, Reigns should naturally be a heel - and he'd be an extremely effective one.

    Rousey lost two-thirds quicker than Punk, right? Yet people saying Punk should stop after one fight like they don't often last a matter of minutes (hence why WWE have started copying it). Rousey gets more damanged physically and mentally than Punk after her fights.

    It's not the match that ended Rousey, it's her mental state. If it took her a whole year to return after a loss, and lose in an even more humiliating way, I can't see how she's going to bounce back off from this mentally. Rousey should have fought someone else, not the current champion who is on their A game.

    CM punk in the UFC is a joke. He had no prior experience fighting competitively in MMA and Dana just booked him for the draw. At least Rousey had her wins.

    I like Roman Reign's a great superstar. Him being the US Champ is also great as it makes the US Championship look good as before it was with mid-carders and people like Rusev who was a great US Champ but people would get bored with him having it for a long time whereas with Reigns being the US Champ people don't get bored seeing him wrestle for the title.
    Would you agree that WWE are trying to get THE SHIELD back together again? I think indirectly they are even though Dean Ambrose is on Smackdown. So I'm guessing in the next draft Ambrose will go to Raw or the other members Reigns and Rollins will go Smackdown which would in my opinion be better as it would push Smackdown higher in the ratings as in my opinion Raw doing better mainly because of Reigns and Rollins.
    Also John Cena laying the challenge to AJ Styles for the title is kinda boring to me as we've seen it many times before in their matches. I don't really want the title leaving AJ Styles as hes a great champ unless its for someone that hasnt been a champ or hasnt been a champ in a long time. I think that new champ should be BRAY WYATT. The Wyatt Fam with Orton is looking amazing. People still cheer for Orton cause hes great. So if Wyatt becomes champ then Randy Orton should betray the Wyatts and face Wyatt himself for the Championship or in a triple threat including AJ STYLES. Think about it AJ STYLES VS BRAY WYATT VS RANDY ORTON. You could even through John Cena in it. We havent seen a fatal 4 way for the championship in a long time. This would be awesome.
    I hope you take the time to read this and reply with what you think; sorry for writing alot.

    Heres how WWE should book the main event for WrestleMania Giant Sun:

    Cena inconspicuously cheats to win the WWE title at the Rumble in a way that leaves people wondering if it was intentional. Huge celebration for the 16 time champ matching the record. Undertaker enters the Rumble unexpectedly and almost wins but Cena runs down and royally screws him so that a Raw guy wins and goes after the Universal title instead. Taker reveals he returned for one last shot at glory and wants to go out on top as WWE Champion.

    Cena becomes an outright **** in the run up and blatantly cheats with a foreign object to screw AJ out of his rematch. Undertaker in desperation shows up and attacks one of the chamber participants and takes their spot, and overcomes the odds to win the #1 contendership. Taker ends by saying that all he wanted was one last roll of the dice, one final shot at the big one ... now he has it and if he cannot beat John Cena and leave Orlando with the WWE title, he will have wrestled his last match.

    The greatest legacy in the history of the WWE staked against the greatest world champion of all time for one last ride with the richest prize in the industry on the line... the career vs the title ... John Cena vs The Undertaker! WrestleMania!!!

    Licence to print money. Plus it would be brilliant entertainment!
    This is a great idea. This even gives a chance for AJ Styles to become face even though hes a great heal. AJ vs Taker vs Cena would be crazy too.

    Please , I hope I'm not the only one who thinks that neville's new character change - him being evil is just ridiculous "But YOU PEOPLE", :rofl:, I can't take it seriously at all !

    And I'm also wanting a Sheild reunion. Not gonna lie ...
    Yeah that Shield reunion is likely to happen I think. They keep bringing up things about the Shield. But in the next draft I think Reigns and Rollins should got to Smackdown. And somebody like AJ, Cena or Orton should go to Raw.

    That's what it's all about though isn't it? I wanna see Punk fight and so do a lot of people, at least one more time in hopefully a longer fight. I want to see that more than some of the other guys.

    I want Punk to do well with his MMA career too, just I don't think he should be going straight back into UFC for now.

    Rousey is done. Can't strike and can't take a hit. Career over - at least at the top level. She'd be better off transferring into the WWE. She'd make huge money in there still.

    Rousey is so ****ed up she'd probably fail Wellness in months, and I'm sure WWE would like her to do the odd WrestleMania segment, but not be active, they don't want another Eddie/Benoit. Plus while the women's division is getting a push, I don't know if you'd believe even Charlotte or Sasha brawling with Ronda and winning more often than not. But if they did a Brock push it'd be same old ****.

    I'd like to judge him on a second fight, since in the first one all you could say was it was over in the first second, but he lasted longer than he should have after that.

    There's space for these gala exhibitions (no one's expecting Punk to challenge for a title), one of the many things UFC is taking from wrestling (and funnily enough Brock's return to WWE since UFC). It's not gonna kill whoever's involved anyway, at least that's what Dana believes.

    Yeah I meant WM segments with my earlier post.

    The whole Punk episode was bizarre. There were all those rumours of him struggling in camp and struggling training. I'm not sure he went in with his eyes open, but he's bound to be better prepared next time (if there is a next time with UFC, anyway).

    It's so hard to tell because he effectively started the fight with a guy on top of him, and not so many would win with that handicap. Had he not got himself taken down he might've had a good few minutes, maybe still lost relatively easily, and we'd all be satisfied. At the moment it just feels like a void, like the entire period between watching Rocky V and before Rocky VI came out.

    I'm far from a MMA expert but it just seemed to me like Punk was too hyped up for the fight and went flying in when there's no real need to. I'm sure he woudn't make the same mistake again.

    Absolutely. Gall flew out of the traps - I've rarely seen such a fierce and frenetic opening.

    Yes, it's difficult to judge Punk's career from that 2min 14 seconds and he made a mistake it seems and Gall pounced. He's making the right sounds about wanting to continue and UFC giving him another go so hope he succeeds. The mini-series on his journey was an enjoyable watch and made me root for him even more.

    I remember discussing that with you when it was airing. It was a really enlightening four-part series. Really enjoyed it myself, and it lifted the veil on Punk. I hope he comes good - largely because it'd be a nice two fingers to WWE.

    We'll just have to wait till Punks next UFC fight, then we can see how good he actually is if he lasts a decent amount of time. I think against Gall if he survived atleast till the second round we could see his potential. Overall I think Punk won't be a beast in UFC but will be a fighter who is good. He just needs to train abit more and have more experience.
