The rumors are really starting up about the Rock not being able to work WrestleMania 39. Something about him not thinking he can get in ring shape in time. I'm inclined not to buy this because this had been the plan for WrestleMania in LA for three years now. So it's either a work or the Rock is a horrible planner. The dude claims he works out everyday. It it doesn't happen this year then don't do it at all. Roman had held the belt this long partly because of these plans. Granted the Bloodline going this long have us the Sami Zayn angle. I think it's a work, but i don't ever want to see it if it doesn't happen now.

Men's Rumble was a 7/10. Great performance by GUNTHER, and Cody winning was the obvious and correct choice. The aerial spot between Logan Paul and Ricochet was awesome, though I'm not a fan of non-active wrestlers getting down to the final four--just a personal pet peeve. I'm disappointed in some of the entrants, though. You're telling me you wanna throw guys like Booker T, Elias, Gable, Otis, Dawkins, and Montez in there for a minute or two each? Why? Where was Dexter Lumis, Bronson Reed, Mustafa Ali, Pete Dunne, Ridge Holland, and Shinsuke Nakamura? Or any forbidden door/free agent surprises, like Muta, Matt Cardona, Jay White, or Nick Aldis, all of whom have been strongly rumored? Pretty dumb if you ask me.

Neon black light match was dumb.

Didn't pay attention to Bianca/Alexa.

Women's match was really strong. I don't really like that numbers 1 and 2 are the only spots that ever get to be iron men/women anymore, it's pretty uncreative, but Rhea was awesome and for a minute I actually believed Liv might've won. Chelsea getting dumped in a second for the second time was hilarious. Great surprises from NXT, particularly Roxanne, and Piper Niven getting a chance to shine was good to see.

I'm tired of ref bump spots in every Roman Reigns match. This one didn't need it. But that finale... one of the best PPV endings ever. I called Sami hitting Roman with the chair, but I didn't expect Jey to walk out the way he did. Great stuff.

I know HHH wants the announcers to do their own thing, but he should have told them "enough with the Bang Bros, Doudrop, and Top Dolla jokes."

I think if you do sign Jay White and Cardona you wait until after WrestleMania to debut them. Maybe your can bring back Cardona at Mania since the crowd knows him, but Jay White wouldn't be instantly recognizable to most of the crowd.

I listened to some of Sam Roberts podcast today. He broke down the story of the Bloodline run with Sami Zayn. He went deep into the perspective from both sides. Actually three sides because he went into Jey Usos waking out at the end. I could write a novel going through all of it, but it was very intricate. Impressive considering this all started off as something for Sami to do for a few weeks. You forget that everyone except Solo had to be beaten into place by Roman. 

What did you think of the press conference? I always found it odd in New Japan and then AEW started doing it. Infamously lol. I agree with the people that think it pulls the wrestlers too far out of their character. That was true for Rhea and Bray. Cody not so much.
