If - Spoiler - gets the WWE World Championship shot, instead of Daniel Bryan, I'll be selling my Mania-ticket.

This is quite the wrench and we're all having a visceral reaction to it. But - I at least like the twist to it, if not the proposed match-up that results.

I'd have to say - if any of the scenarios play out the way they're rumored to now... that I'd worry about Punk getting shoved so far down the card that he decides it's not worth it anymore with that broken shell of his, and I'm not ready to just throw all my fandom behind the Shield just yet without Punk on TV.

Having just listened to the show where Meltzer said all that, I think we probably shouldn't be freaking out yet; he was pretty clearly speculating [his reply to being asked if it would be (SPOILER) was a series of "uhhh yeah most likely"s].

Here are some more thoughts from a demented mind in Central Florida:
Well, there's been a lot of talk about Stephanie selling her WWE stock over the past few months. I wonder if these (SPOILER!) plans have anything to do with it?

Creative is out of their collective minds if they really think this will pop buyrates, if this actually happens. If they're really building this around folks never seeing it coming, perhaps they need to revisit the WCW Russo era, and WCW's last 18 months or so, to brush up on how well that works, short-and-long-term.

Going to drop the spoiler black. (You had a seven post gap on a thread of rumors, you should've stopped scrolling!)

Even though this road to WrestleMania would be built on it the surprise of this road existing at all, I don't think they're doing this for surprise sake. Batista is not back just to play Movie Star Guesting At WM, Batista is back for a while - and Batista is back because WWE wants a #2 babyface and they don't think they have one after this past summer. That's the position they're putting Batista in, the one we would've liked Bryan or Punk in (and the one they very erroneously believed Big Show could be) at least until he has something better to do.

That doesn't mean WWE can't be a lot of fun - it's going to be tough to not buy a WWE show because of Batista/Orton if they also are offering HBK/Bryan - but it's a bit disappointing.

Things can and will change.

How the fuck can they make it fun? Hope another wrestler close to Taker dies and do a month of bad jokes about it? There is no fun to be have here. I will say it makes sense, but man that will be a giant disappointment.

If Batista comes back and wins the Rumble and then Super Awesome Dickface Who Hates You Batista comes back on Raw, only he just kind of tolerates YOU and really hates Guy Who Is Lucky I Left Or He's Nowhere Near the Face of the Company™ Conversation Randy Orton, I can get behind that. Batista was friggin' great.

The potential problem is Batista circa whenever he left and Orton are basically the same dude. I'd rather see Batista and Orton reform a mini-Evolution where Batista is Orton's Diesel.

I've never really understood the idea of wrestling spoilers for a non-taped show that hasn't happened yet. If we know about Batista, it's because someone in WWE wants us to know. They're more than capable of keeping things like this secret, or on the down low. Especially considering how little we know about it and how much is speculation at this point.

I don't like the idea of Batista-Orton at WrestleMania, and it to me feels like it's more HHH's mental masturbation of having all of the prime Evolution members facing each other at WrestleMania than anything else. That said, I do like Batista and there is a built in history, and Batista can really give Orton his comeuppance, so it's not the worst thing in the world.

Daniel Bryan not getting his revenge kinda is the worst thing in the world, though. It would feel like a real jerk-around for him not to get the belt now. It would be the "Lex Luger at WrestleMania 10" curse coming full circle.

So, if it's Orton-Batista, Bryan-HBK, and Punk-HHH, all three of those guys can't go over. I'm betting Punk gets screwed out of that deal, even though HHH kinda owes him one.

Maybe with WWE announcing Batista's return on Raw -- dunno if their hand was forced or if the advertising rolled out this weekend because that teaser was coming -- there's less of an impetus to do the Rumble win when it's not an all-in-one-night surprise.

I wouldn't want to try to lay out the Rumble with Batista, Punk, and Bryan all in it that Batista wins, but I guess you could get them out of the way earlier and have it come down to Batista and ... wait, who else is over? The Shield I guess.

Yup, not a bit of fun to be had in Shawn Michaels vs. Daniel Bryan or CM Punk doing shooty promos about Triple H. Life is unbearable.

I think they would all go over. Because if Punk is representing Vince McMahon, he levels up to +14 politicz pointz.

    While this could change, right now they have a Batista vs. Orton match scheduled for WrestleMania. HHH vs. C.M. Punk is now on the books for Mania as the climax of The Authority angle. Roman Reigns is a back-up plan for HHH’s opponent. Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar is also still on the books for WrestleMania.

    That still leaves a Bryan vs. Michaels spot open (as noted, everyone internally is being told Michaels will not work another match, as are friends of Michaels, but even so I wouldn’t reject that possibility 100%).

    With all the top guys seemingly taken, that would still seem that Cena is in for something to do with Hogan in some form, since Cena should be involved if they do a Hogan final deal type of show. As of last week, Cena vs. Bray Wyatt, believe it or not, was the main event planned for the show. Vince McMahon stated to the writers and producers that “Cena is the main event until his time is clearly up. That man feeds us!”


Well. Let's. uh. Let's see what happens.

At least that "Roman Reigns bigger plans than you'd realize" thing makes sense now.

I love That Man Feeds Us with all my heart. Hilarious and also insightful.

Wyatt/Cena actually sounds like an interesting idea if the Wyatts got to be scary and Cena did not do jokey promos the whole way thru.

Also this means Daniel Bryan is more or less modern Hacksaw Jim Duggan, which is awesome just to type and not necessarily a bad thing.

Remember, no one man is bigger than WWE! Also, John Cena is the man that feeds them!

God help them if Cena ever wakes up one day and decides to try and take his chances in Hollywood.

As much as I love the Wyatt gimmick, having him headline friggin' Wrestlemania against John Cena seems like a big stretch. I guess you could maybe have Bray win the Rumble while Cena wins the title from Orton to provide SOME juice for the match, but it still seems too much.

What's the backup plan for Bryan if HBK remains retired? Bryan vs. Kane, or would Bryan get bumped up to face Cena for the title?

Isn't this also supposed to be the show that entices people to sign up for the network?

That slate of matches is gonna be a tough sell.

I would think if HBK/Bryan falls through, they could have a Shield 6-man with Bryan/Sheamus/Whoever and finally break up The Shield post-match or the next night.

Re: Daniel Bryan, we've been preparing for a while now that he may not get the title shot, so this latest gossip is no surprise. As far as I can tell, these appear to be the options for him: 1) HBK, 2) Cena (title), 3) HHH, 4) Punk. If those are your options, and Punk is considered the "worst" of those in terms of card placement, then everything is fine because you could do a lot worse than that.

Add Big Show and you have the opening to this year's Mania. I just bored as hell of part timer Wrestlemania. I am more terrifed HHH will shoot so hard, he will get cheers over Punk thus thinking he should go over.
