No, Reigns is already over exposed.

The only diluting stipulation is why the hell is HHH even champion?
Triple H wanted another title reign and to give Reigns another future title reign. They trade the belts so much it gets sickening. I miss the days when the champion could keep a belt for at least a year if not longer.

So you want CENAWINSLOL back?

Bret Hart's in a fight with prostate cancer.

All the best for the guy, hope he pulls through and his surgery is a success. We've lost so many legends lately, losing Bret as well would be too much for a wrestling fan.

It would be sad to lose Bret Hart and we would mourn him. However his impact wasn't as big as a lot of people think it was. If anything he helped launch stars than he did launching himself as a star. He helped launch Shawn Michaels and Stone Cold Steve Austin. However he was kept in Hulk Hogan's shadow.

Which makes it an even bigger bummer. The dungeon without stampede, without Bret Hart, would have changed everything. The wwe is built on severed ends. Sucks.

Bret Hart had an okay run in WWE and a good run in WCW. He worked with the nWo and often feuded with Sting.

To be fair, many wrestlers were in Hulk Hogan's Shadow.

Aww. he's in no condition to compete after all of his injuries. But no doubt he'll still draw for retirement esque matches like Terry Funk. Sucks we'll never see Bryan vs styles / Bryan vs nakamura for now.

He'll be wrestling somewhere else within the next three years. I guarantee it.

He was okay. He might pull a Jeff Hardy and jump to TNA. They need all the help they can get.

He's probably the best in ring worker of his generation.

Given how many coaches the PC seems to go through, I could see Bryan taking a teaching role to stay involved. Could even follow in the steps of is mentor, William Regal as an on-air figurehead for NXT. A master like Bryan could produce some amazing students...

Oooh definitely. Something kinda like Ric Flair? Considering how well he's is received, I don't think Charlotte could jobber to the star as well as she has ever since she won the belt. DB might not wrestle anymore but his flavor is always captivating. Hell, Charlotte is making me like the bellas.

He talks about how he never felt he had any flare for teaching in his book, but I guess we'll see. Dusty left some big shoes to fill down in Full Sail.

Dusty had a great impact on Wrestling. It is too bad his sons are stuck as midcarder jokes.

Yeah. It really will depend on how he can let go of the business. You have guys like Stone Cold and Shawn Michaels that struggled with retirement at first, but grew to love it and all the new things they could do with their time. Then you have guys like Ric Flair that just can't seem to exist without some involvement. Or you go the Mick Foley route, where you are involved, but more as an observer, writing books and such.

Bryan always struck me as the kind of guy who IRL could be super content as a hermit, so he may be happy never getting back into the business once he's acclimated to 'civilian' life.

On the other hand, his wife is still working and will be on the road a lot. So it's almost impossible for him to not constantly be connected to the business. He may need something to fill that hole, at least until Brie retires too.

Smackdown had one or two average matches , but plenty of D. B. retirement coverage. Just in case you didn't get enough of it on RAW. Trust me, I was over it before it started.

I'm really enjoying Mauro Renallo with Byron and the King. For me the best part about Smackdown tonight was styles tagteaming with Jericho, it didn't last long, but for a moment it seemed like styles had an epiphany or some kinda reassurance on his face before the match ever started, it spoke volumes. It makes sense for him to be against Jericho right now because he has enough starpower with a wwe audience to eclipse his Tna and ROH legacies without interfering his own abilities right away. Im also really enjoying Bubba going into Bully Ray mode. Kinda feels like they've been wrapping things up before this WrestleMania, I'm hopeful that they'll pull through after so many recent injuries.

Any chance they will let Bully bring back the Aces and Eights? Nothing wrong with a good heel stable.

Would be fun to see. It looks like the dudleyz are going heel already, its probably going to showcase the usos a lot more, I'm convinced they're really talented behind that gimmick.

I feel the Usos are way overrated. If not for being related to the Rock, they would probably not have enough talent to even be on TV matches.
