I think it's a bad idea to begin with. If Reigns is going face, they need to disband. To include anyone else at this point, let alone replace, is just wrong.

 

Especially by replacing Roman Reigns with someone like Mason Ryan. Seriously? Mason Ryan?

 

No, just no. Once Reigns leaves, The Shield needs to disband. They got something special in Roman Reigns and a lot of people are looking at him as "The" next guy, besides D-Bry. Once he's out, The Shield just won't be the same. So after he leaves, I'd like to see them all go their separate ways.

 

Seth Rollins can also turn face, I guess. He's a major talent. Great athleticism, awesome high flyer. Ambrose needs to remain heel. I just can't see him as a face. Anyone who's seen his CZW days knows I'm talking about.

Rollins needs to turn face as his face work in ROH was very good. Ambrose will need to stay heel and probably be a heel for most of his career due to the way he works and cuts promos.

There is a lot of resistance to Mason Ryan (potentially) joining The Shield, I've got no problem with it, fine if you basing it off what he was like before, but the guy has improved in NXT recently and we're not seeing all of his stuff on TV either.  As he'll joining in with Ambrose and Rollins he'll do well from the protection of those two and will learn from them as well.

 

I still would have taken Leo Kruger as a replacement, as he's a natural fit for the group, but I get the impression they've buried that character and are rebranding him as "Adam Rose", who looks a square peg in a round hole... yeah seriously

 

Also Old School Raw tonight, which I'm hoping may be quite interesting in as far as we may get some hints about the beginning of the road to Wrestlemania, possibly with hints about the status of The Ultimate Warrior, Ho Kogan and The Undertaker.

Not sure if Hulk Hogan will make an appearance before Mania, they might be looking to keep his Wrestlemania return as a surprise.

Jake The Snake definitely has cleaned up in recent months. Glad to see him back and hopeful to see him at the Royal Rumble.

It's all thanks to Dallas Page quite frankly, he's done an excellent job at getting Jake back in shape.

If Jake is going to be a surprise entrant in the Rumble (high chance given he's said himself he wants to be in it) then expect to see Scott Hall as a surprise entrant in the Rumble also.

 

Dallas Page had been helping both Jake and Scott, so hopefully we see those two men shine once more in the squared circle on Jan 26th. :^:

Kaitlyn has left WWE :cry:

 

Mickie gone, Beth gone, Kaitlyn gone... I hope to f*ck they keep AJ and Natty or I will not be happy.

 

No official line yet as to why, but Kaitlyn initiated it but some suggestive tweets are pointing toward a little Kaitlyn on the way.

I'd fap to that.

 

Latest Rumour about the WWE Announcement tonight, Ho Kogan may be there and may be revealed as returning as well as announcing the possible WWE Network.

 

Also TNA made a HUGE announcement that they've signed a deal with Challenge TV in the UK... :whuh:

 

... yeah, that's like TNA saying they've signed a deal with PBS.

I hear that TNA is much more popular in the UK than they are in the USA. Is that true Gareth?

Not from my experience, WWE is still way ahead of TNA in the popularity stakes, the only real advantage that TNA would have in the UK is that it currently airs and will continue to air on Challenge TV, which to translate how that sits compared to the US, Challenge TV is on what's called Freeview, which is broadcast television that doesn't need any subscription, cable or satellite to watch. 

 

WWE however is broadcast on Sky Sports which is primarily a satellite channel but you can also get it on cable, but the packages to get Sky Sports on are fairly pricey so that does put people off, plus the scheduling is shocking.  Raw airs live so starts at around 1 or 2 in the morning (depending on Daylight savings etc), the replay is on Thursday at 6:00pm and is cut with the old 'freeze-frame chair shots'... urm-yeah.  Smackdown airs on Friday, NXT is sometime, as is Superstars, but because there is 4 Sky Sports channels they chop and change which of the 4 they are going to show it on, then changes the time of day and the day it's shown, even for Raw so you can never keep up properly.  The other added annoyance, is because Sky like to package either Sky Sports 1-3 together or 1 & 3 or 2 & 4 or 1-4, you basically have to purchase the whole package to see the complete WWE output, but then you're stuck with a load of sports you don't even watch.

 

I would hope for one of two things, the WWE Network is streaming and becomes successful so they can export the idea to other countries like the UK, or Sky lose the rights to someone who gives a sh*t.

A WWE TV channel and reportedly might let you stream WWE shows or something. I don't really give a f*ck because I'm not getting it if it's a subscription based service.

Here's the details (by way of CageSideSeats)

  • The Network will be the first to launch with a 24/7 streaming service. There will be live content and an on-demand library of programming accessible at all times from ANY platform and from ANY device.
  • All 12 live pay-per-view (PPV) events will be included. That includes WrestleMania, at no extra price. Wow.
  • Every single WCW and ECW PPV will be available to stream. There are over 300 total that are available on demand, whenever you want.
  • Live pre and post-shows for Raw and SmackDown. There will also be a live daily show at some point, much like Sportscenter.
  • The price of the network will be $9.99, which is one hell of a deal with everything that is being included. It was later revealed that that price comes with a six-month commitment.
  • The launch date: Feb. 24, 2014, at 11:05 p.m. ET immediately following Monday Night Raw that evening.
  • At launch, it will be available through WWE.com on desktop and through the App on mobile devices. XBOX, Playstation, Roku, and others will also have access. XBOX 1 and Smart TVs will have access by the summer.
  • The U.K., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, and Hong Kong will have the Network by late 2014 or early 2015 with many more countries to follow.
  • The slogan for the Network: "It's way over the top."
  • NXT will finally have a home and it is being marketed as a place where developing superstars compete to make it to the main roster.
  • Legends House, the reality show WWE filmed last year featuring the likes of "Mean" Gene Okerlund, Roddy Piper, and more, finally has a home.
  • WrestleMania Rewind is another show that has a home. It's a documentary style look at the biggest show of the year on the WWE calendar.
  • WWE Countdown is a new show that will debut, an interactive program essentially featuring all the various lists WWE.com breaks out that we love so much here at Cageside. This time, though, you're getting it in video form.
  • The story of the Monday Night War will be told with a new series.
  • To purchase the WWE Network, you have to either have a WWE.com account, or some sort of social media you can connect through. It's only a matter of clicks to get there. One click will get you there through most other devices, like mobile and Playstation.
  • The video will be 720p, HD quality viewing.
  • You can set up reminders to be delivered straight to your e-mail or mobile device for upcoming shows.
  • There is a partnership with the folks at MLB TV, a similar network that streams some 20,000 hours of programming. It's a huge undertaking but they've made it work to near flawless results. It's a good partnership for both sides.

You're kidding, right? For the price of two major PPVS, you can get all 12 in one year, including Mania, plus a bunch of new shows, behind the scenes stuff, pre and post shows, and a totally uncensored, unedited vault of old WCW, ECW, and WWE/WWF shows and PPVS.

 

This is an absolute steal.

 

Also, sad to see Kaitlyn leaving. I really liked her. No idea what she's going to do now though.
