So, who you got?

 

Realistically it'll probably be Roman, but I'm really hoping for McIntyre. I'd also be very good with Owens or Joe, or half a dozen others, but I'm trying to get it into my head that if it's not Roman, it'll be Cain Velasquez, so that I'm not too disappointed when it happens.

 

NXT surprise entrants I'd like to see are Keith Lee, WALTER, Tommaso Ciampa, or the Velveteen Dream, if he can come back from injury.

 

As for the women, I'm expecting Shayna Baszler to win.

I don't think the men's winner will face Brock Lesnar. Brock isn't winning. Unless he disappears after the third entrant and shows up 45inutrs later after we've forgotten about him. If be surprised if he lasts 20 minutes.

If Roman wins then he goes after Brock. Going after there Fiend makes no sense. I know I know it's WWE. Question is will WrestleMania be the Fiend's first loss? His first loss has to be meaningful. Other than Daniel Bryan right now the only other person I could see would be Bray Wyatt. I'm banking on that match happening at some point. I'm so undecided on the men.

The women......... Ronda Rousey!!! Shaina Baszler remaining in NXT crowds the women's division there. As much as her and Rhea Ripley got over before Survivor Series, imagine Rousey returning to challenge Becky. Makes so much more sense and you have heat that doesn't need to be built.

Been rumors of Edge being in the Rumble for a few weeks. Not sure if I buy it, but it's worth mentioning. It'd be one hell of a surprise, that's for sure.

World's Collide was a really good show. Great matches from top to bottom.

We had people over and one of my wife's friends could not stop watching. She said "I know this is stupid, but I can't look away. That old guy had a really nice six pack." I told her that was Tomasso Ciampa, he's 34 and younger than you lol.

I was surprised at how many of the NXT women were there not wrestling. You have to figure most of them are fine to be in the Rumble. Why risk flight delays?

I only just turned it on, was wondering if they did anything on the kick off. Good, the card looked full, though I really don't want to see Roman and Corbin in two different matches tonight...

No one ever goes into the locker rooms in these falls count anywhere matches. Hopefully that's it for Reigns- Corbin.

Well Phillips is there. He called World's Collide so the plane was not late to Houston.

They say she's been hurt. That's why they kept putting of her matches with Lacey.

Arguably the best Fiend match. Thank God they got rid of the red light. . I just don't know why the Fiend isn't wrestling. Bray Wyatt can wrestle.

Also the women's title match sorta ended like last night's match. Seemed like they cut it short for time.

Drew McIntyre. That almost seemed inevitable after he eliminated Lesnar.

That was great. It seemed going down a dark path with Lesnar. That part was actually done well. The second half was just as entertaining

Hell of a ****ing Rumble! I can nitpick, and I wil later on, but goddamnit Im happy. Drew was my pick and I didnt believe for a second hed win.

One nitpick sorry I cant help it: Itd be nice if for once Roman could be in a Rumble and not be the last one eliminated though.
