Even an empty arena would boo the shit out of that. 

It would be like the Clap for the NHS thing from a few days ago except for wrestling fans opening their front doors and booing Corbin like the crowd booed Rey Mysterio coming out at number 30.

Is the one hour highlights show not on channel 5 any more?

There are no highlights of these empty arena shows.

Doing these empty arena shows will forever feel like a bad idea both in the risks being taken and the mostly bad programming it creates, but you can always rely on Big Match John to elevate whatever shit he’s got to deal with.

That Cena promo and camera trickery with Bray was easily the best thing they’ve done at the Performance Centre. Hopefully it’s a taste of things to come and they go batshit crazy with the concept at Mania, having Cena fighting both characters at the same time in the Fun House. Get Drake Maverick and Jeremy Borash in to produce a big bunch of fun nonsense. Hell, chuck a Husky Harris cameo in there.

Ultimately though, I just felt sad that a rare John Cena match was happening in these circumstances. He’s so fucking good it’s a real tragedy he isn’t in front of thousands of people. Have we gone full circle with John? Surely no prick is booing him these days? He’s the best.

So there was no explanation at all for the switch to Braun Strowman, just a graphic of the match and "Goldberg is now defending his Universal title against Braun Strowman." They could have done that last week!

The boo baton was passed to Roman Reigns five years ago, then to Seth Rollins, and McIntyre will be running with it in a few months. JC is long removed now from being the full time top dog. If the goal is to hate Raw and SmackDown every week, you go for who is there every week. There’s no Tuesday morning rant fuel in hating Big Match John anymore, so he’s dropped out of that boo zone. 

If Cena wins at WrestleMania though, there will be an awful lot of REEEEEEing online.

It does makes me wonder if Punk had stuck around, not necessarily till now but even if it was just a few extra years, would the fans have eventually turned on him the way they do everyone else. Or was Punk always going to get a pass because of his internet points?

Taking this a step further, in support of WWE's decision, I feel WWE fans should open their doors tonight and loudly chant "THIS IS AWE-SOME!". The unknowing neighbours will really appreciate it.

They didn't even write Roman out of the match. If they couldn't think of a storyline they could've just told the truth about his health.

Sums up how clueless this company is.

Of all the post Mania call ups over the years the Forgotten Sons might be the least interesting. They were barely over or featured on NXT so really no idea what they'll bring to the main roster. Can definitely see this being another Sanity situation where they are called up and then they do nothing with them. I could potentially see Vince liking Ryker as a singles guy down the line.
