This was a GOLD Segment.
The only reason to watch wwe nowadays.
Also looking forward to 7 Man Chamber even though it's really predictable.

Looks like Jeff Jarrett is officially the next inductee into the hall of fame. I can’t believe it

I was on and off for many years and haven't watched since after Survivor Series 2014 after the Punk podcast came out and being appalled at how WWE treats their workers, and I saw not too long ago the company didn't pay Austin when he was away due to the injury he suffered from Owen.

I still do read up on what goes on once in a great while.


My take on Double J in the Hall of Fame is he doesn't have the WWE accomplishments for the WWE Hall of Fame, but the WWE doesn't limit achievements strictly to what they did in the company alone. Hence Sting. Hence Verne Gagne. Jarrett has done a lot for the business, and deserves to be honored for such.

Now, for the Chamber and the dirt sheets surrounding Roman and Brock at Mania.

I really don't care for Roman either way, but why is WWE pushing him to the moon with a rocket attached to him? I thought Cena was hated. Roman might be hated even more. Do the fans want Roman? Okay. Give him the belt and the main event push. You had him win the Rumble, beat Triple H for the belt at Mania, retire Undertaker at Mania and he's still being forced upon the fans, and it's not just IWC marks who don't like him either.

Imagine during 1996/1997 if they put the WWF Championship on baby face Rocky Maivia, before he turned heel and joined the Nation of Domination, before he became the Rock, when fans went so far as to chant him to die. Imagine giving him the winged eagle while WCW was white hot with the NWO angle and the Sting buildup before the very anticlimactic Starrcade 1997. WCW would absolutely have won the Monday Night Wars.

You have a face who is actually over in Braun Strowman, whom I read about before, as he debuted after I stopped watching. He seems to have appeal. He can flip cars and wreck stuff back stage. Why wouldn't that get over? That would be highly disappointing, unless we get a major swerve, that Roman is booked to win the chamber instead of Strowman. Plus he has history with Lesnar, too.

It's like de ja vu. Roman Reigns is what John Cena used to be. Braun Strowman is what CM Punk and Daniel Bryan used to be. Punk was white hot. They killed his momentum, even though he outsold Cena in merchandise. Bryan was so ridiculously over. He too rivaled Cena in popularity and WWE tried everything to squash his momentum and did so. SummerSlam 2013, Royal Rumble 2014. Even after he got his WrestleMania moment he got screwed over at the next Rumble.

That's what I see here. Roman is going to get the belt. Braun might get a run, but they'll probably drop the ball with timing and booking. The perfect time to push Ziggler was after Survivor Series 2014. If the fans want Roman, give them Roman, but if the fans want Braun and you keep shoving Roman, then no wonder the fans get alienated.

Also, I really like what I see from Elias, whom I had never heard of until I saw the video of him with Braun. He has a unique look, an entertaining gimmick and he seems to actually generate heel heat, something that people like Alberto Del Rio struggled to do. Of course I'm not confident in how Elias will be booked in the near future, but I like what I see.

I think Cena was the death of the "good guy vs bad guy" dynamic but it's not really his fault. For one they so rarely had true bad guys. I'm talking people that the majority of the audience actually hated and when they did have a guy who was close to that they'd put him against Cena hoping they'd get the crowd on Cena's side. Problem was that "50/50" split Cena always got was just transferred to the person he was fighting.

Bray Wyatt, Kevin Owens, Brock Lesnar, Elias, and even The Miz have all had their heel heat toned down significantly by working with Cena. What's worse is instead of learning from that, The Powers That Be in WWE put most of those guys up against Roman as well.

I don't think Reigns will ever get over as a face without going heel first. The fans just won't let it happen and WWE should have realized that by now. The internet has made wrestling fans "smarter" and when we realize that someone like Roman Reigns is being pushed down our throats it automatically makes the guy he's fighting against the underdog and underdogs are way more fun to root for.

Well, Cena was terrible at selling, plus his character was very jarring. The face of the company, in my view, should appeal to all demographics. Cena stopped being cool to me after the rapper gimmick. Most cool gimmicks are Midgard gimmicks. The one downside, if Elias ever won the belt, would be his singing gimmick would be dropped instantly.

Cena was a kayfabe underdog. Punk and Bryan were real underdogs, because they got to the top in spite of the support of the WWE machine. This isn't the Hulkamania era anymore. We know what a script is now. We know kayfabe is not real.
