    Also the company that ended kofis special title run against a part timer in 6 six seconds, and kofi never acknowledged it on tv after.

    Bray went over AJ Styles and John Cena...both coming off functionally feud of the year and Cena's 16th title win...to win the title at Elim Chamber. And then he beat them both clean on the next SD. 2 months later he lost in a dogshit match at WM and never recovered.

    This is basically the perfect confluence for WWE. The ability to put over a 50+ year old part-time AND screw over Bray's career. In a way, I dont see how they pass that up.

    I honestly think the title is inhibiting the fiend so I'm fine with it, if that happens

    i really dont think Goldberg is going over. i dont see what is in it for him. he's getting tons of money from these Saudi shows and he has already hurt himself twice in his limited stint since the Survivor Series match against Brock.

    the difference between the Fiend and the other examples of Bray and Kofi is that WWE has invested tangible resources into Fiend beyond just a push. he is a merchandising gold mine and as soon as he's just another guy thats going to take a hit. i dont see it.
     
  5. Meltzer saying Cenas Mania opponent is gonna be Elias. Lmao this mania is gonna fucking suck

    Assuming the best case scenario so far, we're getting

    Brock v McIntyre
    Reigns v Fiend
    AJ v Taker
    Cena v Elias
    Becky v Shayna
    Charlotte v Rhea
    Bayley vs Naomi?
    Goldberg vs ?

    The US Title holder is suspended until the go-home show for Elimination Chamber; the IC title holder is Braun. The RAW tag titles are held by a non tag team who is feuding with another non tag team. I think the SD tag titles are gonna be the only lower card belt that has anything resembling a story heading into Mania. And most of the non-title matches I have no interest in.

    I mean, this should be incredibly easy to book if htat's true. Trot out the WM33 template.

    Goldberg catches the fiend early, Fiend no sells. Fiend catches Goldberg, Goldberg no sells. Maybe a minute of back and forth, Goldberg hits another spear, hypes up the Jackhammer, Bray counters it into Sister Abigail and Mandible Claw...match over.

    But I still dont trust them to get this right

    John Cena’s opponent for Wrestlemania, which is very underwhelming in Dave’s eyes, might be Elias. Dave will have 100% confirmation tomorrow but he feels confident this is the match. He cannot believe this is the match as it is suppose to give Elias the rub in a losing effort.

    Feels more positive on AJ Styles vs Undertaker. Cause AJ can lose and not hurt his rep, plus sell for Taker to make him look good.
    So...the current mania plan is to have two guys who wrestled one non-Saudi match in the last year beat two of their more popular full-times...

    Remember when Taker squashed Cena after Cena squashed Elias

    i had a similar thought, i feel like itll just be another squash
    yep. an Elias segment for the third Mania in a row that will do nothing for anybody
     
  19. Elias will always be fine for a cooldown match :shrug:
     
  20. Elias is such a god damn bad worker

    I'm not a fan or really like anything he does, but this is blatantly untrue.
     
  23. as long as he can pull off stuff like this, Elias will always always always get a pass for me

     
  24. How is it untrue?

    Elias needs to be a heel
