This is actually sad. He had a lot of talent and potential that was never properly used. Plus that splash he did....man, that takes some skill.

Yeah, it's a shame WWE never made him into anything besides lower card level when he was able to easily reach the midcard if they had put some effort into it. I haven't seen him in a match in months, so i won't miss him that much.

I was waiting for him to be revealed as that fucking bunny. It's probably better for his legacy that he left.

My Royal Rumble predictions are that Daniel Bryan wins the Rumble match and Brock Lesnar walks out as champion. BOOK IT.

What the fuck was the point in eliminating Bryan?
What the fuck was the point of putting Ziggler as number 30 and not have him win the match? And why was he eliminated so easily when he endured during Survivor Series?
What was the fucking point in putting O'Neil in the Rumble for only 4 seconds?
What was the point in not eliminating Rusev for so long and then at the end when it seems like he can pull off the most redeeming thing in the whole Royal Rumble match having him get eliminated by Super Reigns?

The only things i liked about the PPV were The Ascension win, the Triple Threat match and Kane achieving the elimination record.

The past Rumble matches have been very disappointing.

Rusev should have won. Instead, he's going to get buried by Cena. Great job Vince.

I cheered so hard when Bubba came out, and then it was all downhill from there. I would be less upset if Bryan was in the final four, but because they knocked him off so early, the rest of the match, the guys had to work through so many boos. And now it seems that it is Rusev's turn to join the buried by Cena club.

On a positive note, the title match was so great. More Rollins in everything please.

Did Roman step over the top rope when he left? If so, Axel technically won the rumble.

Folks, I've got Vince Mcmahon on the line here to answer your questions about the PPV.

Me: Vince, are you there sir?

Vince: heh heh, yeah I'm here pal. Lets just get to these stupid marks' questions.

At 1/25/15 10:53 PM, Radaketor wrote: What the fuck was the point in eliminating Bryan?

Vince: BECAUSE HE'S A B PLUS!!! Because he's one of those indy guys that weighs a buck fifty and he's scruffy, he sucks! You're lucky I don't fire him!

What the fuck was the point of putting Ziggler as number 30 and not have him win the match? And why was he eliminated so easily when he endured during Survivor Series?

Vince: Because he's just a jabroni like that Daniel Bryan guy. I know better then everyone, now buy the network for 9.99 or YOU'RE FIRED!!!

What was the fucking point in putting O'Neil in the Rumble for only 4 seconds?

Vince: Because it's funny to my grand kids! It's funny!

Vince: Because Reigns is the greatest thing ever! You stupid marks just need to shut up and enjoy my genius creative work! I am the king maker!

There you go. All these things happened because Vince, in his hubris, continues to refuse to give the audience what they want. The sad part is Reigns did nothing wrong here, he's done everything he's been asked to do, he's trying, but Vince McMahon asked him to get in there and outshine the guy that the audience is just absolutely in love with and who they want to see finally beat the bad guys and get his moment in the sun. Poor guy never had a prayer.

You guys catch the Austin podcast with HHH?

All-in-all a good interview where you get a glimpse of HHH's actual business sense and personal character. Without throwing anyone under the bus, he kind of nods that he agrees a bit with what fans want out of WWE.

He was asked about how they push people and the spot Roman Reigns is in now, and he talks a bit about how they have long term plans that they massage based on the audience response.

If you read between the lines, it sounds like Bryan is going to try his best to get Reigns over before Mania. It's a smart call because it gives fans what they way, seeing Bryan take a shot at the main event again, but also giving Reigns an amazing chance to legitimize himself.

The danger is whether having him go over Bryan will accidentally turn him heel.

What then? Turn Brock face? Heel vs heel in the main event? Just ignore it and have him be a John Cena?

Actually, it's possible Roman goes over and Bryan goes heel for a run. A Daniel Bryan with a chip on his shoulder could make for a VERY compelling heel. Plus, his wife is in heel mode too, so that could come more into play as well. Being a heel champion could be good for him overall since heels don't have to do as much of the high flying fast paces stuff. Could give his damn neck a bit of a break, vs just breaking it.

I'm all for heel Bryan, I really enjoyed his tweener shit with Team Hell No where he was just super mad all the time.

I don't think the fans would allow the turn, like they didn't with Austin years ago when they tried that. WWE really put themselves in a bad position here. Bryan shouldn't have been brought back before Fast Lane honesty if there was no plan to use him as champion for a bit before putting it onto Reigns. The other thing here no one seems to be talking about (because maybe people haven't considered it, I dunno) is what all this does to Seth Rollins and his place. Rollins only has a few months left to cash in the contract, and with all the momentum he's built up it needs to be a successful one. With the Reigns/Bryan/Lesnar drama at the top it seems like Rollins may be somewhat lost in the shuffle, or wind up in a situation where he's simply cashing in and winning only to turn around and lose shortly after just to tie that story off. My feeling before he latest debacle happened with Bryan was the best thing WWE could most likely do would be to have Reigns beat Lesnar decisively at Mania in a hard fought, brutal match up, and then have Rollins pick the bones and "steal his moment" and then work a cat and mouse chase culminating at Summerslam where Reigns wins the belt back again. With Bryan back and the audience once again unhappy their pick isn't getting the spotlight I have serious doubts this simple, logical storyline would even have a hope of working now.

Reigns is gonna get booed no matter what, the fans love Bryan so if he loses against Reigns i expect Daniel Bryan chants in every WWE show for a long time.
Or they could have Daniel defeat Reigns and get into the WrestleMania Main Event, turning Reigns heel and have him demand to be in the Main Event as well.

Yup.

All-in-all a good interview where you get a glimpse of HHH's actual business sense and personal character. Without throwing anyone under the bus, he kind of nods that he agrees a bit with what fans want out of WWE.

Agreed, I think he also makes a good case for why they sometimes do things that aggravate the "smart" fans and was very honest in how hard it is to book a product that that crowd won't hate while still being able to appeal to the mass audience. I think he kind of inadvertently pointed out something that gets touched on a lot, in that WWE really has a bit of an identity crisis right now in that they're trying so hard to appeal to everybody they wind up appealing to very few and even then they lose some who just throw up their hands and give up.

He was asked about how they push people and the spot Roman Reigns is in now, and he talks a bit about how they have long term plans that they massage based on the audience response.

They do, but there are also times where Vince digs his heels in and says "this is what we're doing, the end!" or will deliberately do things to needle talent or piss off segments of the audience. But I really don't expect H as an officer of the company to ever admit to that, nor should he do that. I would of course appreciate the brutal honesty on the one hand but have to admit on the other that he really didn't do right by the company that has literally given him everything he has in life right now.

If you read between the lines, it sounds like Bryan is going to try his best to get Reigns over before Mania. It's a smart call because it gives fans what they way, seeing Bryan take a shot at the main event again, but also giving Reigns an amazing chance to legitimize himself.

It does, but will it work? That's the thing to me. Is the audience ready and willing to hear them out so to speak, on any outcome that isn't Daniel Bryan defeating Brock Lesnar for the title? I'm not sure. I caught their segment on SD! last night and it felt like a pretty evenly split crowd. I really do hope they can salvage this, Reigns has great potential and he certainly has that "something" that grabs your attention. It'd be a shame to have him wind up on the "what might have been" pile.
