Here's my prediction: Cesaro returns on RAW tonight and wins the IC belt off Ryder. Ryder winning was the nod to the crowd. Over now, he gave us something to be happy about and so did his job.


Heh. Almost right. :)

Wonder if they knew before Sunday and that's why they took the title from him.

Could end up being a blessing in disguise for him....... if wwe bring him back as a heel.

Will be interesting to see where they go with him now. He's back, he's fought for the belt but it's still on Ambrose. But you've also got Brock in the mix right now, the legit monster heel who got pinged twice on his UFC return - one of which could only have happened on the day of competition. In terms of egregious "cheating", Lesnar is the one. But it feels like he'll get an effective pass for it because he's Lesnar.

At the end of the day, the drug testing policy in WWE is what they say it is, a "wellness" policy. They're Sports Entertainment for the expressed purpose of side stepping all this stuff. It makes me wonder what it is Reigns was actually doing in order for it to warrant a public announcement. I suppose they had to get ahead of it because everyone legit hates him and he had the belt, and if it subsequently came out it's one more thing for people to kick off about.

And fwiw, so, so, so pleased Enzo is killing it on the main roster. He cut a promo on Raw last night and everyone was just staring at him in open-mouthed amazement. Him in the ring with Cena, and it's the recently debuted guy who does the ten minute promo. I've never seen anyone be given so much trust so quickly, and he owns it every time.

Not only is that guy money, but the company knows it too.

Also, that's a tag team they'll never break up. Enzo needs someone to throw him at their opponents.

Hopefully wwe will keep the tag team division hot for a while. Be good to see Enzo and Cass dominate...... Although I think Big Cass has future champion written all over him.
Big, strong, mobile and can use the mic..... When Enzo was out with concussion he more than held his own.

Looks like Reigns is going to be "paying his dues" for a while. A few months in mid card at least before they push him again.

They have an interesting dynamic. Cass is for sure going to be champ at some point. There's nobody that big (who can wrestle) that won't be at some point. The problem is Enzo, because he can't wrestle. Not really. His finishing move is to be picked up by Cass and thrown at the opponent. It's not a dig at him, they put him on the roster and the amount of charisma in the building doubled overnight. But with the dynamic between them it's almost as if Enzo is a manager for someone who can beat a tag team on his own.

I hope they don't split them up. The Shield had to split because future story lines. New Day will one day have to split because future story lines. Enzo and Cass? It would break what they are completely. If either of them are singles the other should be out there and in their corner.

I haven't made my mind up about Finn Balor.

Wasn't familiar with his earlier work cos I just don't do NJPW. Loved his early work with NXT, but then it disappeared off Sky onto the network and I've only seen bits and pieces in PPVs since then. Always enjoyed it.

Put him in a ring with Seth Rollins though, either to talk or wrestle, and there's no doubt at all about who the greatest available at the moment is. Rollins is going to be GOAT five years from now.
