Two more days until Rumble. This feels like forever.

      Omega has just left Bullet Club over at NJPW; hoping that he is there at Rumble.

        Fun couple of Rumble matches but none of the title matches really did it for me.

        Not many returns in the Rumble but it was good fun overall. Right person won here I think.

        Very surprised the women's Rumble main evented but for me it was the more enjoyable Rumble for me.

        Asuka is still really boring to me but I'm not going to view the Women's Rumble as a bad match because I didn't like the winner. Nia, Sasha and perhaps surprisingly Natalya were both made to look strong and it was really nice to see the likes of Beth and Michelle again.

        I was actually rooting for Ziggler; a bit of shame that he hasn't won.

        While Nakamura and Asuka are two of my favorite members of the roster, both seemed like obvious choices to win their respective rumbles, based on the way Wrestlemania looks to be shaping up. That doesn't mean I'm complaining about the results, but I think Nakamura/AJ was bound to happen anyway, so it would've been nice to see someone like, say, Finn Balor win and challenge Lesnar, instead of the likely rehash of Lesnar/Reigns.

          I'm not angry. I'm just... disappointed.

          Rousey’s debut seemed to have been awkward as well; a little more ferocity would have been nice.

            OMFG.

            ROMAN REIGNS 'BURIED' THE LAZY *** PART TIME LAST NIGHT.


            You know what that means right?

            No?

            Okay I'll spell it out for you.

            I DON'T WANT TO HEAR ANYMORE BS ABOUT ROMAN REIGNS.

            EITHER STFU OR QUIT WATCHING.

            Looking forward to see how Rousey develops as a promo-cutter.

              She was pretty bad at Chamber, surprisingly ok at Raw. Maybe she shook the nerves?

              Yes, does sound like it. I feel like her entrance theme is a little unfitting.

                It's weird enough that it's literally just an actual song that's existed longer than she has, but I agree

                Bad Reputation by Joan Jett. I actually think the song itself suits her well, though it doesn't work quite as much as a wrestling theme. But she probably got to pick it out for herself, because of who she is.

                I'm sure it caught my ears before at some point, but I couldn't put my finger on the name.

                It seems like this is going to be a mixed tag between Angle and herself versus Steph and Triple H. Any thoughts on this match?

                  I think they found a way to make a mixed tag match with less promise than Cena/Nikki vs Miz/Maryse. Kudos

                  I honestly think I’m more excited about the idea of the match than the actual match itself. Yeah, seeing Angle and Triple H square off one last time will be a treat, but both guys are nearly 50, and nowhere near the condition they were even just a few years ago. And while I still like Ronda, I’ve got no desire to see her first performance be against someone who has had one match in the last 10+ years, who wasn’t a wrestler in the first place.

                  But hey, Ronda’s probably the first (and only) former member of PC to be on a Wrestlemania card, so there’s that :p

                  This might not be a bad way to have her be integrated into WWE. Hopefully next year, they will have something more worthwhile for Ronda.

                    There's also the fact that, at least for me, I expect little at best from Ronda as an in-ring performer. Shamrock is the only guy I can think of that made a solid transition from solid MMA success to the WWE, and that was in a far shallower talent pool. The two MMA girls theyve been pushing in WWE and NXT make me even less optimistic. I could do without her being in WWE at all, but if she's gonna be, at least let me actually see what she's got

                        So looks like we are getting Sasha/Bayley at Wrestlemania after all but it won't be for the title which is a shame as the match will probably be better than Alexa vs whoever.

                        Only match I'm looking forward to at Fast Lane is Charlotte vs Ruby Riott. Carmella may cash in although I think they may have her wait until WM hit Asuka over the head with the briefcase and win.
