THE DIE HARD FAN OF WWE IS HERE !!! THATS ME ! I always talk about WWE in twitter and i like it a lot. Well my idol is John Cena he is the man who deserved the respect the support of true fans. He is the real champs well i shocked when Bryan defeated John Cena in Night of Champion and i don't like orton. Now he is a heel that why i hate him much more. Now i think John Cena will come back and defeat Orton with all the respect he deserved and the loyaliti the unitity and every single thing he need he will get and in this thing WWE Championship belt is in hit list. And when cena return to the World Wrestling Entertainment he will kick Orton's ass.

And it doesn't mean that i hate orton that means that i doesn't respect him. NOOO i respect the viper its because of the plot that they are playing Orton, Ryback all are honest peoples but its the WWE plot that they need to act like it.

Unfortunately, no championship titles have changed hands tonight at Battleground—I'm a little dissapointed about that. :( I know that they're trying to maintain the titles' prestige by giving the holders longer reigns, but still. If they really want to bring some importance back into these title belts, then they should start having people do major feuds over them. The only championship that seems to have an interesting storyline going is the WWE title. The others are just lost in the shuffle, sort of.

Since Alberto has successfully defended his belt against RVD for the second time, I wonder if he'll be moving over to feud with someone else? If so, then who could it be? Ziggler may be able to go up against him, but he's had his chance already.

If it weren't for that swerve at the end, I would've predicted Battleground's results perfectly, which shows how boring and predictable this PPV was on paper. And like you said, the only interesting championship feud right now is for the WWE title, and with another 3 week turnaround, I can't see anything in-depth story happening before Hell in a Cell.

As for the World Championship, I'm looking at the roster and based on recent results, I'm honestly stumped at who the next shot could go to. The three best candidates look to be RVD, Ziggler and Big Show, all of whom have feuded with ADR over the title in the past. I wouldn't mind seeing Bray Wyatt move in that direction either, but it's still too early for him, and I don't really have interest in a heel vs. heel feud at all.

Battleground had very poor booking. I didn't care for 90% of the PPV. CM Punk being my favorite wrestler obviously left me biased in terms of which 10% I did want to see but man, what's happening to WWE? It's nice to see Cody Rhodes doing well but what happened to people like Ziggler who were on a good run for a while?

To fans of comics and wrestling, I need not explain what Chikara is or what it means to us. To others, this is a very foreign land. Armies of human ants battle Scandinavian goblin monsters. A luchadore from outer-space competes against an obnoxious football player and his turn-of-the-century baseball player friend. A mantis-man practitioner of magick combats the efforts of a Swiss collective of power-mad villains. Ancient Egyptian deities war with walking, talking ice cream people. Then it get's weird...



Chikara, as a promotion, ceased operation in June of this year under...mysterious circumstances...but there is a movement. A revolution. The fire of Chikara still burns in the hearts of those of us ready to stand and fight for what we believe in. Now we need you. We need you to spread the word, to let the people know that we still believe. Search for "Chikara 101" and join the fight. #IAmChikara, are you?

They, for some reason, seem to suddenly have lost all of their interest in Ziggler. :( I'm quite disappointed about that, because he's such a talented wrestler. He may not be that good on the microphone, but in the ring, he's fantastic. He has the ability to sell any moves that are thrown at him, even the most ridiculous-looking ones. It would be a major waste to simply let all those talent go down the drain.

They most likely can't think of any good programs for Ziggler right now, since they've been a lot busy with the big story that's been going around on RAW lately. Once they do figure out something for him, he'll rise back up on the card in no time. I'm positive.

Also, John Cena has been announced to make his return at Hell in a Cell last Monday, as he'll be going head-to-head against Alberto Del Rio for the World Heavyweight Championship. How do you all feel about this? Personally, I think that match-up was a little random. They should've allowed Del Rio to continue his feud with RVD, and make John Cena make his return in some other kind of way. Maybe they should have made him the guest referee of the fight between Bryan and Orton—it would've added a little more importance to the match.

I don't know if Cena will be winning or not, but if he does, then he'll become a champion for the twelfth time (or is it thirteen?). After a few more title wins, he might as well be able to break Rick Flair's record, who's held on to a world title for approximately sixteen time. d:

John Cena, eh? I'm still a little shocked, but I missed Cena a lot. Don't get me wrong; seeing Bryan in the main event was a fantastic sight, especially when in a fresh feud with Randy Orton and The Administration.

That being said... It was still weird not seeing Cena every week. I liked him when he was 'mid-carding' in the feud with Ziggler, it was fresh and exactly what Dolph needed to get over (although, like you mentioned, Perdition Haze, they seemed to have lost interest in him for whatever reason.)

That also being said, this isn't a mid-card feud, unless that's how you view the WHC. Of course, he'll still take up a lot of time on RAW, but it's not "the" main event. It'll actually be kind of exciting; there have been a lot of rumours/speculation as to what could go down at HIAC with Del Rio/Cena. The one I saw that stuck out to me was, well...

Spoiler:
Cena and Del Rio have the match, but Del Rio re-injures Cena's arm; a sign that he came back way too early. Cena 'perseveres' as always, but Sandow takes advantage of the injured arm, and cashes in MITB successfully, putting Cena back on the shelf. This gives Sandow the MITB, and does so without him defeating another heel, in ADR.

The more I think about it, that scenario is probably the way I'd be most open to Cena coming back, and it would breathe some fresh air into the World Heavyweight title picture. That being said, it doesn't really help with the fact that there aren't any other faces that deserve to be in the World title hunt, as it would just be using Cena as a transitional champion (unless he was going to continue feuding for the belt, that is).

I don't know. I've never been a Cena fan all the way back to his rapping US Champion days, so any time he's gone for a little while, I'm happy. His feud with Ziggler was good though, and really should've been the thing that catapulted Dolph to permanent main event status, rather than having him even further down the card less than a year later.

The WHC is not a mid-card title, but it's certainly not main-event level either. It's sort of in-between, like the position that the Intercontinental Championship was in back at the Golden Era. People use this title to legitimize themselves as a main-eventer, and make them eligible to compete for the WWE championship. Anyway, Alberto Del Rio has been holding on to the World Heavyweight title for quite a long time. He may finally lose it at Hell in a Cell. When Cena takes the belt off of him, I'd like him to continue his feud with Alberto for a PPV or two. After that, he could move on to a young, upcoming star. Whoever manages to beat Cena would instantly be skyrocketed to the main event picture, I'm positive. Either that, or when he's finally finished with Del Rio, he could join the program between Bryan, Orton, and The Administration. This would involve two of the company's biggest titles in one, single feud, something that hasn't happened in a while. Maybe they could use this as an opportunity to merge the two belts, which people have been requesting to see for an extremely long time. (:

Cena does seem to be the go-to person if a young superstar wants to rise to popularity. Well, him, and Triple H, imo. If Cena comes back, I'd like him to have.. more of an aggressive persona, if that makes sense; like, people have been saying that Cena needs to go heel. Honestly, I don't think he necessarily needs to go heel, eveen though I'd love to see that, but, I'd also like Cena if he had his comical side, and had more of a aggressive side to him that goes, look at me the wrong way, and I'll beat you up. Hm, I'm not sure how he can join in the feud against Bryan and Orton, but, him vs Del Rio, I'd like to see again. You know, with them, I'd like to see a rivalry that was like CM Punk vs Cena - that was amazing, and with this era, it's certainly doable!

I'm still trying to get over how freaking crazy Cena's recovery's been. I mean, the dude was supposed to be out for four months. He's coming back having only been out for half of that. Holy crap.

Yeah, Cena makes the most miraculous recoveries. xD

Once he had a serious neck injury that would put someone out for months, and came back about 3 days later.

Also, that KO punch to HHH was golden.

Fun fact: The first time you actually see Big E Langston is actually during John Cena's promo at the 2012 Elimination Chamber. I'm re-watching that PPV now

Cena suffered a severe neck injury back at Extreme Rules, when he was in a match against Ryback. They were both at the entrance ramp, and John Cena was just preparing to use an Attitude Adjustment. Before he was able to successfully execute the move, Ryback managed to counter it with a hard-hitting spear. He speared Cena through the main structure behind the ramp, which caused Cena to land on his neck and be taken backstage on a stretcher by ring officials. Some people thought it was kayfabe, but in actuality, it really wasn't. Ryback hurt himself too (as he was completely unconscious after striking the attack), but it wasn't as serious as Cena.

Big E was at Elimination Chamber last year? I actually haven't noticed him. xD Was he with the crowd?

I'm actually interested to see if Big Show is there for Raw tonight, considering that on Smackdown Vickie Guerrero was already talking about how his house was 'up for sale' hours after Raw concluded. And I wonder how soon we'll see John Cena before the PPV- provided that he is actually coming back and this isn't all some elaborate scheme.

I'm assuming GoatMan1, 2 and 3 were all taken by Daniel Bryan, right? :p

Answering the quote: YES! YES! YES!

I'm getting to see bits of Raw and Smackdown, but I haven't seen a full show since my Da had Sky Sports removed. One thing is for sure; I'm happy that the Usos are getting more of a push than being held in the low card all of the time.

I've been watching TNA, and last week, when Hogan quit, I thought it was keyfabe, didn't know that it was legitimate. As far as the World Heavyweight Title goes, I can see Knux and Garrett turning on Bully Ray and helping AJ Styles win the title at Bound for Glory.

I can't stand John Cena. But if him becoming the next World Heavyweight Champion is going to make the title and Smackdown relevant again and bring the brand extension back to an extent, I'm all up for it. As long as he stays out of the Bryan-HHH feud, I'll be happy.

I have a feeling that Vince will return to Raw tonight and say that it was he who rehired the Big Show shortly after he was fired by Stephanie. That'd be the only logical explanation to why he came out to his entrance theme to knock Triple H out. If he's not an employee, his music would not have been played and if there's anyone who can overrule Stephanie and HHH, it's Vince.

As for Ziggler, I think he's slowly getting back on the right track. He got two victories over Sandow at the Battleground pre-show and at Raw. I can't tell if the creative team is giving him another chance or if it's Sandow who's being booked to lose like the previous Smackdown MITB winners. Let's hope Ziggler doesn't mess things up again by doing more shoot interviews. x_X

I hope Vince returns tonight. ANY episode where Vince shows up, you know something's gonna go down. If he shows up tonight, I can't imagine that it won't have a huge impact on what's going on with The Administration.

No, he was in a promo which John Cena did on the Rock. Sorry, I should have been more clear. The promo is a recorded one based at a training center somewhere. Big E is featured lifting weights and you see him go for a big lift which he manages and everyone cheers him.

I thought it was a work, too. Never thought that they'd let Hogan go this easily. Hulk Hogan was one of the people that helped TNA drive towards the wrong path, so, unfortunately, I am a bit happy to see him leave the company. d: Now, it would be quite epic if they decide to go back to the pre-Hogan days and bring back the six-sided ring and such. Haha.

I've read various reports claiming that Bob Carter, the father of Dixie and one of the main owners of TNA, was planning to sell the company to a new owner. I can't totally be sure if this is true or not, but if it is, then I hope they sell it to a person who's wealthy and have enough experience in the wrestling business. TNA's already in a bad state (well, in my opinion, at least), so if they hand it over to some stranger, then there's a big chance that the company may go downhill completely.

Yeah i wonder if they can even find a buyer who knows enough of the wrestling business and is rich it just seems like a cop-out by the Carters like it was just a pet project for them but if they do sell it i hope they find a buyer with wrestling sense.

Just throwing this out there, I don't ever see the brand extension coming back, where certain stars were on certain shows. It's just so much easier the way it is now.
