If Roman beats Goldberg for the belt at Mania, a feud with the Fiend would do for a couple of months after. I expect they’ll do another draft not long after WrestleMania anyway, though I’d rather they wait until September to do that as part of the Season Premieres.

I hadn’t even considered Reigns vs Goldberg. You think Goldberg is beating The Fiend then? That’d be hilarious.

Side note. . . I’ve missed the fuck outta Sami Zayn. He’s just about the only thing on this show that had any spark to it.

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

Only caught the Goldberg Wyatt segment... He oozes charisma and shits over the majority of the roster although I'd be happy if he got a small run then rode off into the sunset. Nobody wants a serious injury at this point.

Going to be a fun match.

Zayn, Cesaro and Naka are instant skips for me these days. Pity cos Sami seemed slightly interesting when he returned, but his berate the crowd promos never really developed (plus Bryan had done a better version anyway) and he's beyond stale at this point. He looks terrible too. Ceasro is a dullard, and his new gear is hilariously bad, even for someone who's had some awful outfits over his time in WWE. Naka's just not arsed anymore.

Fairly meh show aside from Miz/Morrison. Also didn't realise XFL was starting this week, interesting to see how badly it does!

I'd be well up for New Day vs Miz/Morrison vs Usos in a 10-minute sprint at Mania.

Sadly I fear they'll shoehorn the dreadful tandem of Roode & Ziggler in and ruin it though.

Disappointed to find out Goldberg would be facing Wyatt. I'm not ready to watch Goldberg get beaten again just yet. If they really want to feed him to Wyatt, I'd have done it at the next Shitshow instead, and had Goldberg smash through Corbin here to give him another win first.

I guess some sort of non-finish is possible, although they load up the Saudi shows they don’t seem particularly bothered whether they actually deliver.

I hope they have Goldberg win. Having him face Reigns at Wrestlemania is infinitely more interesting than Reigns/Wyatt, which will almost certainly be shat on by the live crowd.

As opposed to Reigns vs Goldberg which will certainly be positively received by the crowd.

I think it has a better chance of that, yeah. I don’t think fans will reject Goldberg, and if they keep the match short as I’d expect it could end up being a lot of fun. I actually think this is a match people would want to see, unlike Reigns/Fiend.

Would the fans boo the fuck out of Reigns? Probably. But they’d almost certainly get behind Goldberg and I think this has a much better chance of not getting shat on by the fans.

When I saw that Fiend vs. Goldberg was rumoured, I'd assumed it was bollocks, as leaked match graphics had already circulated for Fiend/Kane before Kane returned to TV, and that seemed to be the direction they were going. I now worry that were in a situation where we end up with The Fiend vs. Kane at Wrestlemania instead.

I had assumed we were getting Roman Reigns winning the Rumble to challenge The Fiend at Wrestlemania - there's still time to get there through other means, but it doesn't look nearly as set in stone as I thought it did.

Short of a fuck finish, I can't see The Fiend going over Goldberg. Is someone as protective of his reputation, and as selective as to how and when he takes a booking, as Goldberg going to do the "passes out in a Mandible Claw" finish? I just don't see it. Maybe they've realised The Fiend is a bit of a wash-out, and they want a bigger title match for the big show. I was only saying recently that there doesn't seem to be a spot for the part-timers at Wrestlemania this year, and that maybe they're pivoting away from that and just having them do their thing at Saudi Arabia. But maybe we get Goldberg vs. Roman Reigns. Or Goldberg vs. just about anyone, quite frankly.

Fiend dropping the belt, beating Kane at the February PPV to get his heat back, and moving on to face Undertaker at Wrestlemania? Meanwhile Goldberg fights Roman Reigns? Or is there a means for Triple H to crowbar his way into this?

I reckon we’re definitely getting Reigns v Goldberg at Wrestlemania. Reigns needs a big match after having an underwhelming match last year coming off his return, part of me wishes they’d kept him off TV and had him return after Wrestlemania. Fiend drops the title at Saudi Showdown, Reigns wins the Elimination Chamber then you’ve got 4 Smackdowns before Mania

I'm going to Mania and I'd quite like Reigns vs. Goldberg. Reigns vs. Fiend could just as well be main event of No Mercy as it could be Mania main event. 

I'd like Golderg/Reigns and Taker/Fiend as big name, big spectacle attracttion then further down you have the spotfest matches. Reigns/Fiend and McIntyre/Lesnar are fun but they don't scream Mania to me.

I don't really see any decent Mania feud for The Fiend at the moment. I don't really know what they do with him at all. Undertaker feels like the only option to have a crowd-pleasing spectacle. Anything else feels easily skippable.
