Without Oaf and Eamonn this thread will be significantly down in positivity levels.

Decided to re-watch the first season of Tough Enough on the Network. They've added a lot of exclusive content to it, I certainly don't remember HHH completely burying Goldberg during his laying the law down addition to the show.

I should be able to track down Eamonn, we did the same course in University for a while.

Oaf is wrestling, wrestling is Oaf. We'll get him back.

You know I'm kinda happy that all the wrestling is all in one thread. I didn't like having 3/4 different ones.

I panicked when I couldn't find the wrestling forum.

I dunno about the one thread thing... it sort of makes sense, but we had enough other little things around here and there to justify it's own section, I reckon.

To be honest, I think one thread works. When Raw is on, we talk about Raw. When a PPV is on, we talk about that. It can all be contained in here for now. Can always add more in the future if required.

^ That would be great. Like the Jews, we need our own homeland.

PS – I hope Lee Wilson intends to honour the terms of our Christmas Bounty wager.

^ This is what happens when we don't have our own little dark corner to sequester ourselves away in.

What I mean btw is, we had a Raw, Smackdown and a PPV thread as well as general wrestling threads. We definitely don't need a smack down thread imo. Maybe one thread for all current things wrestling and one general wrestling thread where anything can be said in there...

Perhaps we could get away with just a thread or two... but then what if people want to run features? What if somebody decides to give Superstar Wars another go? Or if somebody else ever wants to do a WM marathon or something?

It's a difficult one... definitely positives to both sides.

Oh yeah I just dont think there is a need for a separate thread for Raw. Smackdown, PPV etc. If people want to run games or features like the WM thread then go for it.

They've never had it so easy to book the Rumble. It's as simple as having Bryan win, face Lesnar at 'Mania and win the title. It's a simple and effective comeback and underdog story involving their most over wrestler. So no doubt they'll force Reigns. Reigns should face Cena at 'Mania.

Without wanting to crush any hopes for WM here... I've been keeping track of WM progress, obviously, and two things of note...

1) People who bought a package for WM31 got booklets yesterday with a WM 31 picture on the front of it featuring 5 superstars... the main, middle, biggest guy on it was Roman Reigns. It also had Cena, Lesnar, Bryan and Sting... So those will likely play key roles at WM.

2) The axxess info was announced yesterday... they do VIP and premium VIP tickets, where you pay more to see the bigger name superstars. VIP has the likes of Ambrose, Rollins and Bray... Premium VIP has the megastars like Cena, Hogan, Sting and HBK. Roman Reigns was listed as a premium VIP, which goes to show how WWE see him...

Also, oddly, whereas Reigns is a premium, Daniel fucking Bryan is only a standard VIP?! They rate Reigns above Bryan...

It's a sure fire way to get the crowd to turn on him. Also, what's up with all the children's book parables they're using in his promos? It's so weird, it's as if they're purposely sabotaging the man they want to be the man. Apparently Vince is personally writing Reigns' lines, so thay explains a lot.
