Americans should be proud of their team, they've put in solid shift every game against better opposition.  As someone above points out, you're playing against teams full of guys from the top Leagues in the Europe and you've still been able to hold your own. 

Spain, Italy, England, Portugal, etc didn't survive the group stages despite having stronger squads of players.

Pointless decision to put it back on Cena.  This has happened before though, where he's gone off to work with the newer talent and then get's his reward at the end of it.  He's done some solid work with Wyatt over the past 6 months, so there's his payoff.  The logical thing now would be to allow the Wyatt feud to continue with the title on the line instead, but I doubt whether logic or common sense are present at many creative meetings.

That ladder really cracked Orton open as well, they had to work on him quite a bit to stop the bleeding.

I doubt it'll happen, but I'm going with Cesaro for the title.  It's a bit early for Reigns I think, but they need some new blood in the title picture.

The newest heel added to the mix is Sheamus, granted he is still somehwhat young but time to start elevating some new stars.

He's probably only got a few years left in him, he's 36 now.

They had to have him win the belt at WM otherwise the fans most likely would have given up on Bryan thinking he would never be champion.

I've got no problem with WM30, after the Streak went they had to finish on a high and DB deserved to win it.  Everything since has been iffy though.

DB was supposed to wrestle batista at the  next pay for view but batista up and quit unsatified with the money and not wanting to lose to db for the title.

There's issues with Batista/WWE and how he's been booked, but he has to look at himself a lot there.  The majority of his work since his big comeback has been rough, his mic work isn't great, he didn't get the comeback pop, and he looks smaller/weaker in his matches.  They had to shift him into a team with Orton to give him legitimacy almost, as the crowd weren't booing him as a heel, rather as someone they couldn't be bothered with.  Then they moved that into Evolution, so I don't know where they go from here.  Batista's got commitments outside of WWE, so I can't see him wanting a long run, but it's a little soon to be breaking up Evolution already.

I ended up doing some computer work through most of it, only the Evolution/Shield match caught my attention.  Cena/Bray was OK, but then the Wyatt goons got involved, completely negating the whole point of 'Just you and me in a cage...' and then the creepy kid appeared and the whole thing went to pot.
7  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: New IC and US Champs - right move? on: May 07, 2014, 09:10:17 PM
Barrett's doing good work at the moment and the crowd seem to be liking his gimmick.  Plus, that elbow he's using as a finisher looks like it'd do some legitimate damage.  Too many finishers these days don't look any different to a regular move.
8  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: Bad Booking of Bryan on: May 07, 2014, 09:07:17 PM
I have no idea what they're doing with him at the moment.  They've completely forgotten the DB vs The Authority thing, leaving him messing about with Kane, who was only recently retired?  Although Steph does keep sticking her nose into it for whatever reason.  Why bring Kane back, straight into the title picture, when there are so many other options available.

I think HHH got a massive hard-on at the thought of bringing Evolution back (plus Batista's general comeback fail), so he put them straight into a feud with the Shield.  Personally I'd have let DB go through every member of Evolution, one by one in successive pay-per-views, building him over a longer period into a viable Champion.  Once he's got through all of them, you could make him face all 3 in a handicap and take the title away from him, keeping the crowd behind him, or someone could interfere in the match, giving DB the win and allowing Evolution to move onto a new target.  DB would then move on to someone else.


Also, slightly off-topic, but Brie has the worst "I'm really, really scared" scream I've heard in a long time.  This week's Raw was laughable when she was trapped in the car with Kane, she's just shrieking as long and loud as possible.  I wonder if she's like that in bed...  Huh

I've got to believe this was Taker's choice. Vince okayed it.

I sincerely hope so, otherwise this was the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen from them.  What reason is there to give it to Brock?  Just to shock the audience?  To get it trending on frigging Twatter?  It wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if this was done to spike the social media ratings and get people to buy the Network so that they can watch the fallout tomorrow night.
11  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: THIS IS LAME!!! LESNAR BREAKS THE STREAK!!! on: April 06, 2014, 08:55:50 PM
Absolute bullshit, Lesnar didn't deserve this in the slightest, I can't believe they let part-time Brock take the streak.  Up until then it had been a solid WM as well, but this killed the whole show for me.
12  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: Wrestlemania Predictions?? on: April 05, 2014, 07:49:48 PM
Tag Titles - USO's retain, and the Real American's split up due to the loss, leaving Cesaro free for a singles push.

Battle Royal - Big Show, just seems fitting to have him win this.

Shield vs Kane - Shield I suppose?  I can see a Shield split on the horizon, so losing at WM could be the trigger for this maybe?  But they've put in solid work all year, so deserve to get a WM win.

Diva's match - I honestly couldn't care less about this.  Unless someone ends up naked (except Vickie), I'll be doing something else for the duration.

Cena vs Wyatt - I'm finding it hard to consider Cena losing at 'the grandest stage of them all', so my head goes with Cena and the good guy schtick.  It'd be nice to have Wyatt take the win, but I can't see them allowing poster boy to lose to the redneck crazies at their biggest PPV.

Undertaker vs Brock - Taker, all day long.  Brock doesn't deserve to end the streak.  An appearance by Sting would be a nice bonus...

HHH vs Bryan - I HOPE that Bryan gets the win here, anything else would be HHH simply serving his ego for no other reason than putting himself in the spotlight at the big one.  I'd quite like someone to interfere here, maybe Vince, or CM Punk, or Austin, or a returning Shane McMahon, anyone just to screw HHH over.

Orton vs Batista vs Bryan - Daniel Bryan gives them both a lesson in how it's done, and takes the win, cleanly.  No interference, no help, he wins by himself and takes the accolades he deserves.  Crowd goes home happy.
13  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: stone cold vs. cm punk on: April 05, 2014, 07:38:19 PM
I'd love to see Austin back in the ring, especially against Punk, but I think there's more chance of Shane O'Mac returning and defeating the Streak...

Austin in any way, shape or form would be a massive plus to any PPV/show, and something I'd like to see.  I've never understood why we never see him any more, when Rock / Brock / Piper / Foley / Jericho / etc, are making appearances, some regular, some not so much.  We've even had Edge back a couple of times since his retirement.
14  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: What if Daniel Bryan doesn't win the Title at WM on: March 20, 2014, 07:41:21 PM
My main worry is that HHH decides he wants the WM30 spotlight and puts himself into the match with Orton/Batista, as a hark back to the Evolution days.

By 1942/3 Lend-Lease with the U.S. meant that almost all of Russia's troops were being ferried around in Studebakers and Abrams tanks.

I think you mean Shermans, the Abrams wasn't brought into service until the early 80's.
16  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: Does Brock End "The Streak"? on: February 26, 2014, 07:22:25 PM
Orton vs Batista will be a completely flat end to the show, so I'd expect them to finish with Taker/Brock.

I'm still curious whether there'll be any surprises though.  With Warrior being inducted into the HoF, it would make sense to feature him in some way at WM.  Maybe even recreate his run-in return to save Hogan all those years ago.  Let Hogan return the favour maybe?
17  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: Hogan returns to WWE on: February 25, 2014, 08:17:44 PM
He looked and sounded rough, messed his words a couple of times, and went through the usual schtick.  Even his 'I'm glad to be home' bit sounded scripted.  If he's so happy to be back, why not let him talk as himself instead?
18  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: Does Brock End "The Streak"? on: February 25, 2014, 08:15:02 PM
Whenever his last match comes (at WM obviously), he should do his celebration bit and then the lights go out.  One lightning strike on the teletron and when the lights come back on, he's gone.  I don't think he should break character or do a retirement speech, just finish it in the same style as his career.

And Brock isn't ending the streak.
19  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: breaking news on: February 20, 2014, 06:29:02 PM
I loathe the team, of course, but isn't Man U owned by Yanks?


Yeah, the Glazers, but they've not put much money into the club for quite a few years and the team has suffered.  Ferguson had managed them for 20+ years, and when he retired last summer, he left a team which had been over performing massively.  The new manager couldn't get the same out of them, and they were struggling to make a top 4 finish this season.  The owners did plough some cash in during January, but it might not be enough to get them Champions League football next season.

As a group of owners, they've done OK, but not great.  Same with Randy Lerner who owned Villa, they just paid huge transfers and wages, resulting in the club being massively overstretched.  They've had to sell almost the entire team and rebuild with younger cheaper talent instead.

Currently, the most successful US-owned club would be Liverpool, who have slowly built a team by investing wisely, and are on course to do very well this season.

I would love to see this if it's true, Newcastle are my team's biggest local rivals.  Their club is already teetering close to being a shambles, and Vince coming in would probably tip them over the edge.  He knows nothing about football, and not many US investors have done well with football teams in the UK.  Fenway are doing OK with Liverpool, but that's about it.
21  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: Wade Barrett.m on: February 04, 2014, 05:03:50 PM
Very talented guy, and being wasted at the moment.  This Bad News gimmick is pointless, he's just waffling nonsense each week.  At least let him get a little more edgy with what he's saying.  He had a perfect opportunity last night after the Super Bowl, where he could have slagged off the NFL and told everyone that soccer is the biggest sport in the world, but they missed it.  If they want him to be a proper heel, then he needs to follow Regal (and every other foreigner in history) and tell everyone why his country/culture/history is better than theirs.  That'll generate him some realy heat and make people hate him.  Currently he's just boring.
22  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: Breakout star of 2014 on: February 04, 2014, 04:59:56 PM
I'm not as high on Reigns as everybody. Sure, he has a look and athletic ability but his mic skills could hold him back as a singles  face. As a singles heel, he'd make a good Heyman guy.

I'm not sure if he's been given chance to really show what he can do with a mic, as they've let Ambrose do most of the talking so far.  Granted, he could be awful, but I'd be interested to see how he does given a proper opportunity.
23  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Murican football vs Soccer on: February 04, 2014, 04:55:17 PM
It's always funny how these threads come up and all the US posters start slagging soccer football off.  I get why, American Football is your sport of choice and the Superbowl got a massive amount of viewers the other night.  I actually really admire the way the US does sport, with huge amounts of attention paid to all levels, not just the top tier as with other sports in the rest of the world.

Both sports require skill and talent, and both can appear confusing or boring to a non-fan.  I get the gist of American Football, but the constant flags and whistles often seem to happen for no reason.  The same could be said for football though I suppose.  Is a 0-0 football draw any more boring than an NFL game halting play every 30 seconds for the players to rest and choose the next play?

However, in an argument about which is best, there are simple facts that can't be argued with.

Football - Most played game on the planet, being the No. 1 viewed sport in the majority of countries, and the national sport of dozens.  The World Cup is also the most viewed sporting event in history.  More accessible, in that all you need is a ball and something resembling a goal.  You can even play it by yourself if you like, practicing shooting or close-control skills.

American Football - Only played seriously in America, with 99% of the rest of the world not paying it any attention, aside from watching the Super Bowl each year (as I do myself).

So, there it is.  Flame away.   Grin
24  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: Breakout star of 2014 on: February 03, 2014, 02:53:11 PM
Reigns is potentially the best prospect right now. 

Wyatt has impressed me so far, as I didn't believe the gimmick would work at first.  I still think they need something adding to really make them click, but they're on the right road.  The problem is that it's completely a one-man show, the other two 'brothers' have nothing about them other than size.

Cesaro is talented, but I agree with the others that he's lacking in charisma.

The one I can't agree with is Ambrose.  He just seems to be trying too hard with his character, so he comes across as cartoonish and exaggerated.  If he could tone it down a little, I think it would be better.  Rollins is OK, and they'll flip him face when the Shield breaks up, but he's going to be another Kofi Kingston type guy, good athletic ability, but he's got nothing other than that as far as I've seen so far.  Reigns is the one to watch, big guy, strong, aggressive with a good look.  He's got a decent bloodline behind him as well, which can't hurt!
25  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: Royal Rumble 2014 results. .. on: January 27, 2014, 08:31:51 PM
The whole thing was a like a big HHH Reunion.  The Outlaws won the Tag Titles on the pre-show, Nash appears in the Rumble, and his mate Batista wins the thing.  They even had Flair and HBK up in that 'Analysis Box' thing, and his training partner Sheamus makes his comeback and takes 3rd place! 

It wouldn't surprise me if Xpac was working in one of the merch stands in the concourse...
