    Please, please, please, please leave The Undertaker retired.

    Have Strowman go after Cena instead...

    Hard to believe him and Matt are related when you see their complete opposite approaches to their work. One works his socks off for mid card work, the other gets handed main event matches all the time, yet doesn't seem to care that he has a job.

    Just watched Royal Rumble 92.

    After a piss poor Warrior, Slaughter and Hogan main event scene the last 2 year - Flair has come in and is head and shoulders above EVERYONE in the WWF.

    Everything he did on the mic and in the ring at the Rumble was pure class....best PPV in a while till Hogan had to have the spotlight at the end, fake chants piped in as well.

    I genuinely forgot what a spotlight hogging, egomaniac Hogan was, terrible wrestler too....and such heel antics too

    Still, WMVIII should be good, as they’ve set up

    Piper Vs Mountie.
    Legion of Doom Vs The Natural Disasters
    Shawn Michaels Vs Marty Jannetty
    Macho Man Vs Jake Roberts
    Hulk Hogan Vs Ric Flair

    ....so, why the **** none of those were actually on the card Vince only knows!

    Enjoyed reading someone's fantasy booking where when Roman wins the title at WM, the RAW after, he calls out his Shield brothers. Seth and Dean come out, and Roman says he's not talking about them. The the Authors of Pain come out and beat them up.

    Piper Vs Mountie. - Bret was promised the match at Mania if he dropped the belt

    Legion of Doom Vs The Natural Disasters - Hawk had been suspended for steroids

    Shawn Michaels Vs Marty Jannetty - Janetty sacked (AGAIN)

    Macho Man Vs Jake Roberts - Jake handed in notice after Patterson silently returned and got booking job that Jake mwas promised and Taker needed win more than Savage

    Hulk Hogan Vs Ric Flair - apparently had some matches in the October and crowd had got bored of Hogan bs

    Also did you watch the Rumble where fans cheered Sid for dumping him out or the dubbed version?

    Hawk was at ‘Mania - they cut a promo.

    I watched the Network version and didn’t really pay much attention.

    As I’ve been watching the PPVs I’ve been listening to the Old School Wrestling podcast where they review said PPV straight after. They played both version of the Hogan eliminating Sid Justice on there - just a slight difference !!!

    They made out Sid was the heel and bad guy for eliminating hogan, Gorilla and Heenan had to do new Commentery, hawk failing test took LOD out of Title picture, That was end of LOD as major force in WWF

    Mark Henry HOF worthy?

    I guess keeping his job for 22 years maybe worthy?

    Loved his hall of pain run but other than that he’s always been a fat jobber best known for his sexual chocolate antics of shagging transvestites and impregnating a 80 year old woman who gave birth to a hand...

    Where is Christian?

    Probably saving Christian for if they go back to Toronto.

    Mark Henry was with the company for 22 years. More than deserves it. There are plenty of people in there who were not big stars, but did their time with one of the "Big 3".

    I’m going to disagree.

    I don’t think Mark Henry is HOF worthy.

    Longevity is all he has. I mean I think only HHH and Undertaker have kept their jobs longer than Sexual Chocolate.

    ...but...you think good matches, good gimmicks, great promos and title/main event runs - its not a lengthy list.

    I do hope he wears that garnish Salmon jacket though.

    Anyone seen Macauley Culkin’s Twitter? Seems to be angling for a Wrestlemania appearance...I think he was at an Indy show a while back could happen I reckon.

    Although home alone style violence probably isn’t PG enough for the WWE despite the film being...a PG...

    Daniel Bryan medically cleared to return to in-ring action

    Following more than two years of extensive evaluations, four-time World Champion Daniel Bryan has been medically cleared to return to in-ring competition by leading neurosurgeons, neurologists and concussion experts, including Dr. Robert Cantu, Dr. Javier Cárdenas and Dr. Jeffrey Kutcher.

    Bryan underwent a full review of his medical history and received comprehensive neurological and physical evaluations independent of WWE. He was cleared by each doctor as well as WWE’s Medical Director, Dr. Joseph Maroon.

    After enjoying numerous championship runs, battling in legendary rivalries as both a singles and tag team competitor and sparking the epic “Yes!” Movement, Bryan was forced to make an emotional decision to retire from competition in February 2016. Later that year, he became the SmackDown LIVE General Manager, where he has continued to be an active part of the blue brand.

    What will the future hold for WWE’s “Yes!” Man? Could we see a WrestleMania return? How will this affect his role as GM? Who will he look to face first? Find out as The Road to WrestleMania continues on SmackDown LIVE, tonight at 8/7 C.


    Posted on wwe.com and currently doing the rounds on Twitter.

    Involved at WM then?

    Haha, I just find it funny that that is the potential booking.

    "Daniel Bryan is back from nerve injuries! We should protect him!"

    "Sure, let's put him in a match with the WWE's greatest stunt man and the 2 guys known for ladder wars!"
