Has anyone seen the WWE memes facebook page? Some are pure gold. Really improved my Facebook feed from a bunch of dross about people I don't like   http://www.facebook.com/WWEMEMES

I'd rather they turn Del Rio face. He isn't likeable but Rodriguez is, so I'd play off that. Have Del Rio defend him after he gets a kicking and offer to train him up. The comedy skits they could do w

And so he should. If I was Hulk Hogan my number one party trick would be ripping my tshirt off. If I got pissed with Hogan and he didn't do it I would consider the night a failure

Calling it that Bobby Roode will win the Rumble. Its the best chance that a new face has ever had to win it. Maybe lack of star power or the fact there are now two champions again, but him coming in at number 1 or 2 and going on to win the thing and challenging whoever the face champion is by Mania could work. An undercard of Cena/Taker, Goldberg/Brock etc... would help sell it and make a star out of Roode straight away.

 

So yeah, Cena will probably win it

Loads of KO criticism here since he got the strap. I don't get it at all, maybe someone could elaborate. They had a night to pick a champion after Finn went down, KO was clearly headed in another direction and would probably be in the tag team scene with Jericho right now if Balor was still about, I think things have panned out pretty damn well all things considered

In my opinion, nothing wrong with KO being champion. My only criticism is that the "Universal Championship" seems to be an absolute Micky Mouse belt at this point, due to its bad start and playing second or third fiddle to the US and women's title it seems.

 

I'd happily they canned the belt off tomorrow, and just shared World/Women's/Tag Team titles instead.

Exactly! so now like 4th fiddle overall? (Garbage.)

 

I found it laughable when Owens tried calling out Styles about "Who's got the better world title" the other week. [it's styles, his is THE World title, lineage and all.]

It's called promotion. It doesn't have to be true. You just have to tell people enough times and believe it.

 

Owens is a shit champion. That's the gimmick. he was handed the belt and Jericho is the only reason he still has it. It's even one step below a chickenshit heel who cheats to keep the belt. It doesn't do anything for me. I think KO is good generally but not great. Not someone I've thought should be a heel champion. Perhaps if they turned him face and he caught on then maybe.

I love Owens, he's brilliant, but I don't buy him as a champion in his current guise so I can see peoples problem with him. Like it or not even in today's environment his image just takes the piss a bit for some people. The best remedy to this really would be to book him as a psycho killer but for the most part he's doing the opposite and is doing comedy with Jericho's... whatever Jericho's gimmick is. It's a poor combination for anyone flicking through the TV or who has not watched wrestling in awhile to see that the top guy on Raw isn't just tubby but he's also a cool dad on Twitter and makes loads of jokes in the middle of the show.

 

Then the poor combinaiton gets even stinkier when you factor in the fact that his championship is The One That Had To Be Invented and is associated with a bloated heap of a show where he's not really the top bloke like AJ is on Smackdown, he's just one one the main characters whose magic spells are apparently the strongest but you really don't quite buy it because that's probably Roman Reigns, right?

Yeah, Smackdown is great fun with a few simple yet satisfying fueds. The Miz is on top form there, AJ comes a cross as more of a superstar than anyone not named Goldberg and Alexa Bliss is the greatest wank fodder since pretty much anyone. Becky Lynch is awesome too if a little too cheesy at times for me and i hate steampunk..

My issue with Owens are the high spots, it has nothing to do with him being a heel I just don't think that it suits his character or his look doing frog splashes and dives to the outside. He looked like a killer powerbombing Rollins through those chairs at HiaC and I want to see more of that.

I can't recall seeing Owens to a dive to the outside in WWE, actually? Which means either those spots are now so overused that I've completely forgotten. or he doesn't do them. I don't have a problem with a frogsplash, or a top rope move, never had problem with a heel Eddie, Angle or Shawn leaping from the top. The cannonball thing is a pretty babyface move, but his powerbombs normally look brutal enough anyway I don't have that kind of issue with him. AJ Styles is probably a worse offender (albeit a different type of wrestler) with his springboards and corkscrews and 450s if you make that argument

 

The argument I see the most sense in is probably Gay as Fook's, in that he's not that established a name if you haven't been watching for the past year, combined that with being cute with the jokes and of course *Steiner voice* HE'S FAT!! He has a wicked wit though, so you wouldn't wanna waste that. Miscast in the chickenshit role? Perhaps, but I don't have a big issue with that for the time being
