    And rikishi in the hall of fame? Lol. Never a main events even in his prime, as far as I remember. And Arnold? Lol.

    I love the Monday night wars as much as the next guy.. But they should let it die already.

    Easy. Abdullah the Butcher. He didn't like to talk, so he brought his fork to interviews. BOOM!

    Scott Hall was an alcoholic and drug addict.

    He is about to fall apart.

    I was hoping to see Scott Hall Unleash the razors edge. Now that would have been awesome. He took the back body drop like a champ!

    And I agree the rock/Rousey but went on wayyyyyy too long but it was still cool. Potential tag match at next wrestlemania? Taker vs sting?

    Rollins winning was awesome and at least opens up their options for big fights. Want to see BROCK used a bit more than just 3 CENA fights and one other title match in 2015.

    Scott halls on that ddp yoga now. He's gonna make a comeback.


    Still seeing sting triple h and hbk in a ring was amazing. I don't care if they old. My three all time favs. If only flair was there...I guess he was too drunk backstage.


    I ain't gonna lie the first time sting got triple h in position for the death lock k shrieked like a 7 yr old girl hearing zayn rejoined one direction

    I thought that was a really good documentary with DDP, Hall, and Jake the Snake.

    I finally finished WM last night. I skipped a lot of stuff. Overall, it was alright I guess.

    The whole DX/NWO thing was equal parts awesome and sad. Would've been really cool to see at a time when the NWO guys could still do something besides throw punches and lay around on the ground. Unfortunately the coolest part of that whole thing was when their music hit.

    I thought Undertaker was retired? He needs to hang em up. I never really found his matches to be particularly exciting anyway and now being 50 years old certainly doesn't help matters. Bray Wyatt is cool. I'd say he's one of the few good things the WWE has going right now.

    Reigns vs. Lesnar was so freaking boring until the end. Reigns is SO lame (flying Superman punch? rofl) and Lesnar just does suplexes over and over again. Granted, I've been "out of the game" for several years but that's about as least exciting of a WM main event as I can remember. I actually quit watching wrestling before they started the whole Money in the Bank thing and had forgot it existed now so I was legitimately surprised and excited when Rollins came out. Like @nickmsmith said, I guess it was really the only way they could end that match without a resounding boo from the crowd.

    And just a general grievance here, but whatever happened to the days when you hit your finisher and that was it, game over? I mean guys used to kick out occasionally, but usually it was after they both laid there for awhile before making the cover. Now it seems like guys hit their finisher and pretty much immediately cover and then the other dude just kicks out. Last year with Taker/Lesnar it was cool and believable because Taker is this mythological type character and Lesnar is this unstoppable "beast". But in this WM Wyatt kicked out of a Tombstone. Taker kicked out of whatever Wyatt's finisher is called. Lesnar kicked out of Reigns lame finishing moves (believable). Reigns kicked out of like 2 F5's.

    IN MY DAY FINISHING MOVES MEANT SOMETHING DAMNIT! :tj:

    Yeah.. In the past decade, It's a given that in ANY big match in WM, there will be multiple finishers, and many kickouts. It's predictable and stupid. It was novel for the first year or two, but it isn't anymore. It's silly. It would now be a shocker if someone loses from a first finisher in WM main event.
