Yep. My greatest fear is Roman, Brock and Heyman becoming a heel faction and then Roman turning back face in that shit Randy Orton-Evolution/Seth Rollins-The Authority way, where you only become a face by default because your mates turned on you.

Don’t get me wrong - I’m thrilled they’re at least trying something genuinely new with Roman, and I hope the whole thing is a massive success, but let’s not pretend his entire career doesn’t point to them fucking this up. Nothing would be more fitting to the trajectory of Roman’s career than them cutting his bollocks off in the hope of making him the Brock-conquering babyface one more time. Vince is going to go to his grave trying to get that moment.

This is it though. The time is now. If he doesn’t come out on Sunday in new gear and with new music he never will. Look at the shape he’s in! Brick shithouse! Get this fucker some trunks!

Don't forget: the clocks changed last week so if you want to record Smackdown you probably need some professional help.

What a Mark. 

Rob Gronkowski's ring entrance in an empty arena was the most embarrassing and cringy thing I may have ever seen as a wrestling fan. And thats coming from somebody whose parents were in the room when

It’s also a bit weird that he’s seemingly turning heel whilst feuding with The Fiend and Strowman, both heels themselves.

Watch - this whole thing will end up being a Paul Heyman babyface turn, as Vince continues to never ever give in.

The way this ends is as so:

Roman brings Heyman to ring.

Roman wins title.

Heyman is happy.

Roman is happy.

Roman's face changes from very happy to very serious in a way that only happens during wrestling turns,

Roman superman punches Heyman.

Lesnar returns in a few weeks/months.

Reigns/Lesnar feud.

Nothing changes.

Admittedly they are known for doing nonsensical things but aligning Roman with Heyman just to have him face turn on him again immediately? Nah. Even by their standards that's weak.

If they're going for this, they're going for it. There's no logic to putting them together otherwise. Paul has always spoken highly of Roman. I'm good with the partnership. They just need to go with it now.

Do they ever do anything like this on a go-home show and then have it stick? Would have thought they'd have put them together at the end of the PPV itself if it were to stick.

Imagine getting excited for anything wwe might do. I admire people’s faith but how many times can they shit in people’s mouths and have fans still ask for DLC.

I'd find it weirder if people were watching every week and not being excited for anything.

Why is he not cutting these promos on TV........ Why are wwe wasting time, strap the fucking rocket to this man...... 

I don't think they're wasting time. They've been solidly building him for weeks now. To a lot of the audience he isn't a singles main event talent.

He's getting good exposure every week. Promo time. Wins in the ring. And additional stuff like Talking Smack.

I'd rather they built him properly than randomly shoved him out there without any foundation and then forgot about him. They've already got main eventers they're focusing on. Eventually once they pull the trigger with Big E then the audience will view him as at that level. There's still time to do that and watch him grow into the role.

He's someone that could be someone they can build the company round in the future. There's far more there to be invested in than the run Kofi had.

Ideally have Reigns as champ from tomorrow til Mania going on a heel spree, by start of the year we should have Uso's, Kofi and Woods back.

E wins the rumble, few months of Reigns/Usos/Heyman heel unit vs New Day all heading to E winning at Mania, hell I'd even stick on Usos vs Kofi Woods in TLC if that feud can kick off properly

Checked out some clips on YouTube. Apart for the hilarity of them putting Reigns and Heyman together two years after it would have been interesting, I chuckled at Bray's line about "those two monsters with ugly teeth".

Yep. They can turn Roman heel, strap the rocket onto Big E and even give Keith Lee an earnest to god push. In the end it wont matter either way. Because in WWE nothing matters and everyone is just a cog in the wheel filling time. They're systematically fucked beyond repair

And I'm the biggest fool of all. I'm desperate to see that three way main event at Payback and Roman finally working as a heel. It's their last golden carrot. I love Roman, and this is the boost he's needed for years to get over the hump and become the kickass transcendent star we know he should be. But he won't. He'll be swallowed up by shit scripts and senile booking like everyone else.

I don’t want to fault what they’ve done with Big E on Smackdown so far, they’re doing a reasonable job, but fucking hell. The Talking Smack version of Big E is quickly becoming something truly special.

They need to find the time in every episode of Smackdown to feature these promos. It was always obvious he was being under-utilised but this is something else. He’s the absolute perfect guy given the current climate, super charismatic, super educated, insanely articulate.

This is it. He’s the guy. If he isn’t already pencilled in to win the Title at Wrestlemania and have the whole company built around him then they’ve lost their minds.
