It's kind of a shame, but we've had Cena going strong for more than a decade now, so naturally, introducing another character like his at this moment in time isn't something some fans will be able to accept.

Good material... the video disagree's sir :D

I also distinctly remember them giving him the "I'm gonna cock this fist and punch *****es" line. ~Shudder~

Granted they've stopped giving material that only the Rock (And Cena to a lesser extent) could make work. His initial push, In which they basically made him Cena 2.0 backfired because he doesn't have Cena's delivery or charisma. All the marks turned on him.

Really if the Reigns we're seeing now is how they pushed them initially. He wouldn't have lost so much momentum after the shield broke up.

And Pika Pika :chu: back at you sir.
Well, that's just a parody . And on the contrary I think most of it is decent material & actually funny. The only problem is the man delivering it is Roman Reigns. It just proves how awful Reigns is with the mike or even remembering his lines, not the writer's fault. Look at the gibberish Enzo or New Day are given, you can't even understand what they say half of the time, but they still manage to pull it off. If you are good, you can always rise above the script. Maybe give him a mouthpiece, like Lesnar has Heyman.

Rollins & Ambrose have moved away from their Shield days, but Reigns still seems to be in a Shield hangover.

Oh & Pika Pika :chu: to you too Gentleman!

Ya I think that's the problem, they're trying to make Reigns a Cena wannabe, which is what's going against him. The guy has talent no doubt, but he really needs a character makeover.

I wouldn't mind seeing a triple threat between the three guys, but them literally reuniting will bring Jinder down in capacity, I feel.

    Am I the only one who thinks the whole Jinder being champion thing is stupid? I wish they'd push someone else, but I guess its easy to generate heat with the character Jinder is trying to play (Which is the generic EVIL FOREIGNER GIMICK).

    That said, I don't mind Cena losing to him. Cena can carry almost anyone to a main event worthy match. But, if the match they produce is a match of the year contender, then I may have to re-evaluate my views on Jinder... but for now tho, for now... I think he's just a paper champ.

      With Battleground over it's officially SummerSlam season.

      What are your hopes for it?

      I'll post mine. Though it's kind of obvious and seems like mostly a pipe dream at this point.

      I'm getting REALLY sick of the Braun Strowman/Roman Reigns BS and it needs to stop. NOW. However that's clearly not going to happen.

      So it's likely this will happen at SummerSlam...

      Roman Reigns vs Braun Strowman vs Samoa Joe vs Brock Lesnar. Fatal 4 Way for the Universal Championship.

      My hope? Obvious. ROMAN WINS.

      Next up SmackDown.

      John Cena vs Jinder Mahal for the WWE Championship.

      JOHN CENA WINS AND BREAKS RIC FLAIR'S 16 TIME CHAMPIONSHIP RECORD.

      But it really doesn't matter what I want to happen. We'll just to have to wait and see what actually happens.

        Still don't know why they keep pushing Roman and Braun... Given the right opponent the two of them could put on a great feud... but the two of them against each other got stale fast. Them trying to murder each other is a nice and entertaining, but diminishing returns WWE... Just end it please.

        Jinder vs Cena - As much as I want Cena to break Rick Flairs record he probably won't, ever since his controversial win against the nexus on Summerslam 2010, he's lost every single summerslam match he'd participated in (In recompense I would guess, Cena squashed the momentum of the hot new stable after all) . Chances of him winning are slim...

          After a generally underwhelming Battleground some matches have already been set for Summerslam.

          I really like that WWE have remembered there are female Superstars outside the 4 Horsewomen by giving Natalya a Championship match at the PPV. Whether she wins or not the Championship match is much deserved. Indeed it is possible Natalya could win and lose the title on the same day if Carmella cashes in.

          I thought it was going to be Sasha against Alexa at Summerslam but Bayley is pretty good too. I am guessing Alexa retains somehow here maybe a disqualification.

          The WWE title...Can we have it on someone who is on the show every week please.

          I am intrigued to see how Jinder will fare in his match especially if it is against Cena and I wonder if Jason Jordan will go after the IC title.

          It seems like they're on their way of rebuilding Shield. I'm hoping that we'll get them back full-fledge by Survivor Series.

          I'm hoping that Styles isn't taking any of this personally.

          I mean, as much as he deserves it, the only people on the poster are either the top champions or the number 1 contenders, so AJ would've been the odd one out (same if they put The Miz on it). Granted, I think AJ and Jinder's spots on the card should be reversed, but I honestly can't see him having any real beef with it.

              I'm not angry. Or even surprised. It's pretty clear it was done because he's a part-timer now. Still though.

              I'M VERY DISAPPOINTED.

              They are pushing Shinsuke Nakamura way too fast.

              Is Nakamura a contender for the World Title?

              Weird coincidence that I'm wearing a Shinsuke shirt right now, but I have to agree that they're pushing him a little to fast in my eyes. Like I said before though, if the two main feuds on SD were flipped (AJ/Owens for the WWE title, and Jinder/Shinsuke for the US title), then I'd have no problem with it.

                Shinske should fight AJ... why don't they book that match...

                Anyway, I wonder if Jinder is going to be ok with strong style... From what I've heard he's a good worker, but then again, strong style is hardcore as F***. Also, Shinske it's obvious Nakamura is going to LOSE... Probably because of shenanigans.

                I feel like the feud between Styles and Owens for the US belt is not too bad of an idea; it elevates the status of the title in the eyes of some, including my own.

                  P.S.: This is my response to the rumor that Heyman is lobbying for Joe to win the Universal Title.

                  **** off. ROMAN 4 CHAMP.

                  Mr. McMahon is furious over Nakamura, apparently, but for now, I'm taking this report with a grain of salt.

                    Well... it's the moment of truth tonight.

                    If Roman wins... everyone will "riot." But me? I'LL CELEBRATE.

                    WIN FOR ME AND MAKE MY YEAR REIGNS. I BELIEVE IN YOU WHEN EVERYONE ELSE CLEARLY DOESN'T.

                    That's really all I have to say.

                    P.S.: They're pushing Nakamura too fast. He doesn't deserve a main title yet.

                      Very pleased Natalya won the Smackdown Women's Title last night. I have a feeling she won't hold the belt for long but it is a much deserved title. Natalya's past Championship win was for The Divas Title almost seven years ago.

                      Agreed; very well-deserved.

                      I'm happy that Roode's lost his title to be honest; I'm looking forward to his main roster debut!
