If Cena turns heel all his merch will go down the drain, all the little kids and teenage girls who supported him will stop liking him and WWE would lose money.
And the Make a Wish thing he does, if he turns heel a lot of those kids wouldn't want to meet him.
I guess he'd turn heel in one of his last runs as a wrestler.

I never watched Mr Backlund wrestle much so i wouldn't know. I've only seen a few glimpses of his matches on Youtube and TV re-runs.

There's KENTA finally singed after months of rumours.

Really hope they handle him right.

They'll probably just make him a samurai or a ninja.

It seems like Sting is coming. The 2k15 ad and his shirt on the WWE shop leads me to believe he will show up anytime now.


Well we were dumb enough to think it was gonna happen.

I think i read something online that said he'd debut on tonight's Raw (i don't know what time it is in the USA so i dunno if he's debuted yet).

I tend to check this tumblr page every now and then to mostly make fun of WWE fangirls but today while i was checking it i saw this picture.
Is this true? Do we sabotage the Divas division because we just don't care? Or is it that they're just so bad all we can do is entertain ourselves?

I think it's both, what do you all think?

Sting coming to the WWE would be interesting. Would he and Hulk Hogan have another classic match?

I would love to see him fight a couple of matches in WWE. His one of my favourite wrestlers, I watched him a lot in TNA infact, I still watch it now. WWE though, it would be awesome!

I think they're both too old for a match at this point.

They are both around the same age. I would rather see Sting fight Hulk Hogan than Ric Flair.

It would probably suck, Hogan can't take half the bumps that normal WWE superstars take anymore and they both look out of shape, it would be the Braden Walker thing all over again.

Speaking of people who are far too old to wrestle, I hear Jerry Lawler is wrestling Kevin Steen at an Northeast Wrestling show.

What do you think the chances he'll die in the ring are?

Here's the promo.

Piledriver vs Piledriver? Yeah, now i think he's gonna really die.

But i thought King had a WWE exclusive contract, why is he going to another wrestling promotion?

Booker T, Jimmy Hart and Bret Hart are at the same show.

Perhaps non-wrestlers aren't locked into exclusive contracts.

King's contract is as an announcer. For years he's been allowed to do outside bookings.

Considering the man had a real and legitimate heart attack on the air, I don't think anybody should be making jokes or in any way trivializing the idea that he could die in the ring by the way.

So would he technically be allowed to wrestle in TNA?

Fair enough.

No, because I believe the language of the contract is that he can basically only do indies that WWE believes don't compete with them or that doesn't in their mind hurt them. When Memphis was still running, this provision was mostly to make sure Lawler could still operate and work there. But since it's gone under it's been more about the odd indy show he wants to do so long as it's not conflicting with RAW or a PPV

So, the Battleground card is pretty stacked, then. Ridiculously good for what really feels like a filler PPV to tide us over until Summerslam.

John Cena (c) vs. Kane vs. Randy Orton vs. Roman Reigns

I can take or leave this, and we all know Cena is walking out with the belt. Still protecting Roman by keeping him in multi-man matches, and as cool as he is I'm worried about him having to eventually break out into full on singles competition. I'm struggling to see him go 20-25 minutes with anyone. Hope I'm wrong, because he's vastly better now than when he had those couple of dodgy singles matches like the one with Bray Wyatt a few months back.

Cameron vs. Naomi

Not really interested. Naomi is great, Cameron isn't. Hopefully they'll get the feud out of the way and Naomi can go onto bigger and better things. Could still be decent. I'd pick Naomi for the win.

20-Man Battleground Battle Royal

Battle Royals are always fun, and hopefully guys like Ziggler and Cesaro will get a chance to shine. Cesaro picks up the win and hopefully gets his push back on track.

Bray Wyatt vs. Chris Jericho

Should be great. Jericho puts Wyatt over because he's a cool guy.

AJ Lee (c) vs. Paige

Match I'm most excited for. I've been waiting for it since Paige took the belt off her. Give them enough time and they could well steal the show. AJ retains.

The Usos (Jimmy and Jey Uso) (c) vs. The Wyatt Family (2/3 Falls Match)

If their previous matches are anything to go on, this is going to be fantastic. It really could go either way so that 2/3 fall stipulation is going to make for some exciting stuff. If I had to choose, I'd say Usos retain. Feels like there's been less build than their previous matches, so I don't think a title change is on the cards just yet.

Dean Ambrose vs. Seth Rollins

Oh god yes. These two are made for each other, and they're going to tear the house down. I've watched their FCW stuff before, and they've only gotten better since then. It's going to be incredible. Rollins picks up the win via shenanigans.

Jack Swagger vs. Rusev

The first time I can say I've been excited for a Jack Swagger match. Here's hoping we get some Zeb and Lana banter on the side, but either way this should be a good brawl. Rusev goes over, as much as I want Swagger to get the win.

God damn the Tag Team match was amazing! Great way to open up the show!
I had low hopes for this match like i usually do for The Usos's matches but they may have just stolen the show.

Usos and Wyatts have been putting on superb matches together for ages, and this might be the best of them.

It was phenomenal. Tons of crazy spots. Loved it.

Hell of a way to start the show.

I know but i was just so used to boring and predictable tag matches with those twins that i just stopped caring much for them. They found some real chemistry with The Wyatt Family and that gave me my trust in them once again. Let's just hope this rivalry doesn't become stale.

The midcard titles are career poison right now. People are pushed until they get one, and then all their momentum disappears. Glad no one I care about is holding one.

Also these Ambrose and Rollins segments have been so fantastic I'm almost over the fact we didn't get an actual match. That car park ambush was hilarious.

This is why Heath should've won. He's had no pushes in his career (Nexus and The Corre don't count), he's had no momentum going into this match (at least that i know of) and this could be a good little prize for Slater for all he's done for the company so far, he's been nothing but a jobber ever since day one and he's got no problem with that, give him some singles title, he's appreciate it.
