Poor Ricardo Rodriguez. If it wasn't for that damn broken ankle, he would've snatched the briefcase and run away with it the same way he did a couple months ago. He's going to take this loss harder than Del Rio.
The look of pride on Big E's face throughout Ziggler's title celebration was golden.
Heyman getting a heel reaction from this crowd proves he is one of the company's greatest assets.
Originally posted by ChumpstainI was excited to come into this thread and talk about a silly little thing that I thought people might miss while watching the show, how Big E Langston smacked AJ in the chest by accident during his entrance and she just laughed it off.
Now in slo-mo. It was like Ric Flair chopping ... Big E Langston.
Dolph had such a big smile when he first came out for Langston's match. I had a good feeling after that.
Originally posted by Dr Uthe only thing I'm giving the actual company credit for is Shield vs. Undertaker/Kane/Bryan. If that match happens at Extreme Rules, I kind of love it.
It seems like Undertaker might be the replacement after they advertised Rock and Lesnar for Extreme Rules and Plans Changed. What a crazy and wonderful collection of people for a match.
I'm also only now remembering that I'd always expected a lights out Shield run-in for Punk/Undertaker, as one of the "oh no it's definitely over" kickouts. But I think it better suited Punk and the nature of a Streak Match to be a one-on-one struggle. The Shield probably would've had more success interfering than Ryder and Hawkins did, however.
Can we call this a Ryback heel turn if the crowd popped for it as loud as they did and if Ryback continued playing to them as the show went off the air?
Yea, under normal circumstances, Ryback turning on Cena probably gets some cheers anyway, but it's also the beginning of the end of Ryback. It's just down after your feud with Cena. Cena vs Ryback is probably not going to be a good match either, all the more reason for WWE to give up on him. And WWE knows all this going in, they're doing this because they're already moving on from him being the great new star.
On the other hand, giant fan reaction (from crazy crowd) often changes things.
I feel like we're setting up a three-way with Cena, Ryback, and Henry at Extreme Rules.
They telegraphed Orton vs Sheamus vs Big Show as a three way (and that Orton vs Sheamus match as a non-finish, which everyone in the building might have figured out, helping lead to the reactions.) Extreme Rules being an All Three Way Show would be different but not likely.
Speaking of different but not likely, did they set up a The Shield vs Brothers of Hell No trios match for that show, or was that just randomness?
How about Extrem3 Rul3s
Cena vs Henry vs Ryback
Sheamus vs Show vs Orton
Ziggler vs Swagger vs Del Rio
Team Hell No/Taker vs The Shield 3v3
Miz vs Barrett vs Cesaro. First fall is for the IC. Second fall is for the US title.
Maybe it's just me, but it looked like that Austin/Hennig match tonight was squarely marketed at the "gimme wrestling" fans like the ones complaining in this thread. (Not saying that the complaining is bad.)
