General Pro Wrestling News and Discussion Thread Part Deux!
 
Now that 28 is over and we're pretty much starting a new "season" with WWE, I thought it was time that we get a new thread as well. The other has served us well but was getting too long. This one is for both discussion of both news and television and PPV's. Feel free to talk about any fed you follow as well, don't be shy either. Could a mod possibly lock the other thread?

That other thread was going on for a few years, but I do kind of wish this board reinstated like a 5000 post rule before starting a new thread or something. I know originally the point of the 1000 rule was because of the server lag time, but I think a reason I like that rule is because threads can get so long that they feel a bit out of date, and long. That, and it's always fun to start new and fresh from time to time.

Anyway, I might try to catch a little Raw tonight seeing as it's the aftermath of Wrestlemania. It will be interesting the direction the WWE goes in, maybe even combining both shows like they did in the Attitude era because they don't really have the talent for both shows. That probably means there's no need for another draft either.

I am not expecting huge on Raw tonight, but for the first time in a few weeks, I'm pretty interested in seeing what is going to happen with the fall out from 28, hopefully it isn't boring lol.

We know the participants in the ten man tag match tonight now:

IIRC WWE did this last year as well.


Chris Jericho implies that the program with Punk is over, unless of course he's trolling us again. What's funny about this return from Chris is that he didn't accomplish anything that those promos teased. Unless taking back what was once his was a metaphor for our attention and respect. Then he accomplished that.

There's talk about Alberto Del Rio returning tonight and entering into a massive programme.

That isn't surprising since Del Rio was at HOF...which the Score is not showing right now for some reason. Grrrr.

Re: General Pro Wrestling News and Discussion Thread Part Deux!
 
I wonder who the WWE Superstar that TNA has requested a DVD appearance from is? Apparently this was part of the deal for allowing Ric Flair to appear at the HOF and accept induction as part of the Four Horsemen.

Re: General Pro Wrestling News and Discussion Thread Part Deux!
 
Christian would be my guess. I can't think of anyone else. Kevin Nash maybe?

So...Rock wants to become WWE Champion again? Maybe this is the plan for next year lol in New Jersey. Remember when 28 was supposed to be for the title?

I know Cole state that Cena was in the building, but I saw this just now reported earlier this evening.

I wonder who Alex Riley pissed off?! Seriously, he had no offence whatsoever in that match and the jobber in a squash normally gets a couple of punches in. He's not been the same since last Summer.

Tensai looked like a killer tonight, his time in Japan has turned him into a world class wrestler.

I loved how Cole directly avoided calling him A-Train but pretty much admitted he was a repacked guy lol. I bet Maffew will mention something in Botchamania. The crowd chants were hilarious as well. "Let's go A-Train!!!" CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP!!! Dead crowd too with the exception of the chants.


I just was reading on a facebook fan page (take that with a large grain of salt) that the WWE is planning on holding the draft later this month for some reason lol.

Re: General Pro Wrestling News and Discussion Thread Part Deux!
 
The crowd aren't digging the decision to go straight into a programme between Sheamus and ADR, as evidenced by the boo's and "Daniel Bryan" chants.

Re: General Pro Wrestling News and Discussion Thread Part Deux!
 
You must be several minutes ahead of me lol. We're on a fifteen minute delay here in Canada. JeriTroll is trying to get Punk to drink up right now.

So who cut Del Rio's mic? :) We still don't have an answer to who cut Punk's mic last year. Unless of course this time it was an actual botch or technical problem.

I liked the Daniel Bryan cheers!! No words from Bryan or Sheamus!! LOL

It was just an angle to warrant ADR being distracted so Sheamus could hit the Brogue Kick. I'm with you on the unanswered questions regarding CM Punk's censoring last year, though. I guess we've just got to assume that it was John Laurinaitis' and Vince McMahon's doing - that goes for the Anonymous GM too.

My guess was Big Johnny as part of the authority figure arc, which is still I guess carrying on in just a different form, without the conspiracy aspect this time. Miz should have a shirt that says "I'm No Longer Awesome" :(

Looks like we're finally getting managers back like we've been promised, and I guess the dirt sheets were wrong about the ten man tag team lol. This was apparently part of an ad though so who knows.

EDIT: Never mind what I said about Miz! LOL

Admiral_Young April 3 2012 04:13 AM

Re: General Pro Wrestling News and Discussion Thread Part Deux!
 
OMG!!! He's back!!!! I take back what I said that he wouldn't be tonight.

Mr Silver April 3 2012 04:13 AM

Re: General Pro Wrestling News and Discussion Thread Part Deux!
 
ABSOLUTE MARK OUT!!!!

I applauded when he gave Cena the F5!!
