    My SummerSlam predictions:

    AJ Styles over Samoa Joe
    Brock Lesnar over Roman Reigns (again )
    Rhonda Rousey over Alexa Bliss for the RAW women's belt
    Carmella over Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair (like everyone else would love to see PJ fan Becky win though)
    Seth Rollins over Dolph Ziggler for the IC belt (can see Dean turning on Seth and costing him the match though)
    Jeff Hardy over Shinsuke by DQ
    Braun Strowman over Kevin Owens
    Finn Balor over Constable Corbin
    The Miz over Daniel Bryan
    Bludgeon Bros over The New Day
    B-Team over The Revival
    Drew Gulak over Cedric Alexander for the Cruiserweight belt
    Andrade and Selina over Rusev and Lana

    not too bad of a SummerSlam.  I'm ok with Roman winning and Braun not cashing in yet but kinda surprised he pinned him with one spear?

    some solid matches like Rollins/Ziggler, Miz/Bryan and Syles/Joe (up until the end)

    Yeah. I was kind of surprised by that. I was expecting a much longer match from those 2, especially since Roman Reigns kicked out of something like 6 F5s at WrestleMania. I guess they wanted to get it over and done with as quickly as possible so the crowd couldn't go too nuts.

    First SummerSlam was 30 years ago today. I saw it on Closed Circuit TV at the Beacon Theater.

    I had just turned 2, a couple of days before the first ever SummerSlam. First one I really remember happening was probably the London edition.

    John Mayer and Eddie Vedder at All-In is the most random thing I've seen all week.

    I really hope Shawn Michaels stays retired.
    i have witnessed some performances. i have soaked up a lot of memories.
  • Yeah me too. He was a helluva performer, but very overrated at the same time. I met him earlier this year at an event in Dublin, friendly enough.

    Raw has absolutely no direction at the moment....the booking of this generation is just terrible
  • I agree with you on that one. They had every opportunity to make The Shield be these amazing heels, instead they flipped it and claim them babyface.

    Hell in a Cell predictions:

    Samoa Joe over AJ Styles (AJ had a nice run but time for someone else to win and Samoa Joe would be perfect)
    Roman Reigns over Braun Strowman (would love to see the monster win, but too early i think. Maybe Foley helps?)
    Randy Orton over Jeff Hardy
    Rhonda Rousey over Alexa Bliss
    Becky Lynch over Charlotte (hopefully, but i like both)
    Rusev Day over The New Day
    Dolph Ziggler & Drew McIntyre over Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose
    Daniel Bryan & Brie Bella over The Miz & Maryse (Brie pins Maryse)

  • The only 2 matches that went my way the other night were the 2 Women's Championships. I was delighted to see my fellow Irish Becky Lynch finally regain the SmackDown title. I hope that this run lasts longer than the last one and that she doesn't end up getting hurt during it again.

  • Yeah. There's always some fun references whenever Elias Samson is on screen. Remember the time he played Nutshell by Alice In Chains before?

    yeah there's been a few I remember one where he did "Yellow Ledbetter"  and there was the time Dean asked Elias if knew and Pearl Jam.  The Nutshell cover I thought was really good.  He does have an EP out actually

    Corey Graves is really good for the music references. He was on about The Replacements when they did RAW in Minneapolis last year actually.

    I barely watch, but they have something in elias, but waste him.  He is the one guy i see who has the charisma to match the "attitude era" guys.  The crowd eats it up and shouts out his catch phrases.  Its like everyone wants to like him.


    But then he just sits there and does the one trick pony thing, insulting the city and/or a popular wrestler to manufacture boos and end up in a squash with someone.  
  • I didn't see it with Elias at all until he got to the main roster. I don't think that Vince McMahon really saw it for a while either since so little was made of him when he debuted also. It seems like the ones that they aren't planning on succeeding are always the ones that end up getting over. There is something lost between NXT and the main roster. It seems that when someone is a big deal in NXT, Vince still has that tendency to cut people down to size when they get to the main roster. It's the modern day version of what he did with guys coming in from WCW.

    I thought that that was awesome. The Seattle crowd are always great. Ever since the time they had that assembly of former world champions, 2013.

    anyone else get up early to watch the Super Showdown from Australia?  I didn't get up at 5 so missed about the first 2 hours.

    I felt some of the matches were rushed. I would give the PPV a solid B, and maybe that's being generous. They've had worse PPVs in my opinion.
