I hadnít watched any TV in a while so when Vince announced his retirement I had to watch, the only take away I had was Roman has gotten flabby with his reduced schedule.

Reigns looks just fine. Hopefully his arm is all healed up from 'Mania and he can really go.

I'll make my picks for SummerSlam on another thread.

He could be 300 pounds of blubber like all the other Samoans.

You're missing the point, he isnt as defined as he was. It's a significant difference.

Reigns has to get past Lesnar (and avoid a cash-in by Austin Theory) until at least Aug. 23 to make it a full TWO YEARS as a world champion. Reigns has been a workhorse. I think his soft schedule in recent weeks is due to Lesnar pulling out his shoulder at 'Mania.

Rumor also has it that Lesnar got his ribs cracked in that match. And since he's pinch-hitting for Orton, it appears it's the old time-honored-tradition for the Beast Incarnate.

As for the Mysterios, they have to do something with the suck that is the Edge-less Judgment Day. And now Riddle's out for SummerSlam.

As for the Rock and Reigns, that's the rumored main event match for WM39. If that's the case, does that mean Reigns remains champion until then? If so, the only way we get that match is if Rock wins the Rumble.

Can that match sell without Reigns holding the belts?

Lesnar is supposed to only defend his title when a challenger is present and qualified.   Only on big shows,  which is why giving away PPVs for free on Monday's sucks ass.  Look how Flair did back in the NWA days.  He rarely defended his title on Saturday morning shows.  He was the main event.  You had to pay to see him basically.   That is what made the world title special and not a prop.

Lesnar missed plenty of big shows and PPVs when he had the world/universal title.. The only PPVs that Reigns has missed, since being champion, were Day 1 (out with the 'rona) and Money in the Bank. He was at Backlash but that was in a six-man tag. I thought they might put all the titles on the line in that match; but they didn't.
