You would be better-versed than me, but I'm pretty sure Rollins is farther along than we've been led to believe, and that they're setting up Rollins vs. HHH at Wrestlemania, which I think will make for an awesome match.

As always, appreciate your work.

I'd be down for that, too. I think it's still up in the air.

So videos have been leaked online showing Paige being a naughty girl. You can find them on Reddit.

The videos include:

1) Riding some random dude backstage on a folding chair.
2) Fucking New Day's Xavier Woods while former wrestler Brad Maddox is filming them. All three are naked which would indicate a 3 way
3) Brad Maddox giving Paige a facial while she has the women's championship belt placed below her neck. So her face and the belt get a money shot.

Can't wait to see how this plays out.

Paige is on her way out, regardless. Maddox is not with the company. Woods wasn't involved in the belt footage .... So no public reaction is my guess. They may do something internal like "hey, don't include championship belts in your homemade videos."

They're not firing Paige. They will keep her under contract and make her miserable before letting her be free.

I don't follow wrestling anymore so I had no idea who Paige is. I wasn't that impressed by her. Looked kinda like some emo chick or something just you know better body and not wearing a 4 sizes too big for her hoodie. I will still totally be checking out the videos once I get home though. No doubt about that.

I appreciate this awesome honesty.

Stories like this interest me beyond even the porno-ey part. Sometimes, we see certain wrestlers getting all but dropped despite some huge HEAT, and our instinct is to blame it on Vince McMahon, since his writing and direction have been more or less terrible over the past few years. But at least for some cases, these wrestlers are probably doing craaaaaaazy stuff off camera, and WWE has no choice.

Well, any thoughts on Wrestlemania this Sunday?

Knock on wood, but this is the one and only PPV with which WWE consistently manages to exceed expectations. I usually marvel at how they're able to pull together a year's worth of pretty shitty writing on a night of grandeur and awesomeness.

Still, looking at the card for this evening, I seriously have no idea how they're even going to get all of these matches in. I'm guessing there's going to be a number of really short ones. Maybe not Sheamus bro-kicking Daniel Bryan in 5 seconds-type-short, but pretty short.

I think I like that card better than the current WMXXXIII card, and I don't dislike this card.

I'm always excited for Mania, but this year's card is kind of boring.

The KO and Jericho match is the one I'm most excited for. I hope they don't have Joe interfere.
I thought Aries and Neville was going to steal the show, but they moved it to the preshow.
The raw tag match will be a spot fest due to ladders being added.
I don't care about Greenburg and Lesnar, taker vs reigns.
Im excited to see what Shane will jump off this year in his loss to Styles.
I also don't care about the ladies matches the raw match should be good though.
I hope Broken Hardys debut.
Jose Tabata, Pedro Alvarez, and Andrew McCutchen are the new Jason Kendall, Brian Giles, and Kevin Young (in his prime) players that are good, but surrounded by crap which will make them losers.

Hey! I'm making a rare visit to this thread. Rare because I just don't watch wrestling anymore. So why an I here? Because the other day I saw a notification that it was the 29th Anniversary of Hulk slamming Andre at Wrestlemania. But really so what? Andre and Hulk met long before that. Here was that meeting and it was why I was never a fan of Hulkamania. In my mind, Hulk was always a heel.

I'm still amazed that every year Hulk wants to come back for a match. Vince always says no.

Do they at least have Hulk's videos and matches back up on WWE? I thought that was a bit of an overreaction when WWE purged him from their entire history after his poor comments were leaked to the media.

They never purged them. You can still find Chris Benoit matches on WWE Network. They just stopped mentioning Hulk or referencing him in any way. They're slowly relaxing that, did a segment on him on Bring It to the Table in January and several mentions of him in Hall of Fame speeches tonight. Wouldn't be suprised to see him at all the Wrestlemania festivities next year.

Huh. Thanks man. I remember hearing at the time that they removed all of his matches from the WWE Network, but maybe that was very short-lived.

Not at all condoning the racial comments that he made, but it seemed crazy to me to pretend the dude never existed.

Here are my predictions for the card:

Andre the Giant Battle Royal- I recall the first one being very good, and then last year's more or less terrible. Baron Corbin does nothing for me. I doubt they'll spend much time scripting this, but I'll go Sami Zayn as the winner.

Neville vs. Austin Aries- I think this will be one of the better matches of the night, so it's disappointing that it's relegated to the kickoff show. Aries win the Cruiserweight win.

Alexa Bliss vs. All women- I just don't really care for Alexa Bliss. In a time when WWE has some quality Divas, I think she's a waste of a card. I'm going to go "anyone but Alexa Bliss" for this one.

Triple Tag Team Ladder Match- I don't see how Gallows and Anderson get an event at WM. I think they are completely unremarkable, and so go the way of The Ascension, whom we (thankfully) haven't heard from in weeks. I love Cesaro, and think he always builds whatever terrible tag team partner (Sheamus, Tyson Kidd) WWE saddles him with in Vince McMahon's never-ending attempt to minimize Cesaro. Still, I think WWE cashes in on Enzo and Big Cass's popularity, and they win the belts.

Dean Ambrose vs. Baron Corbin- I think if the crowd breaks out in boos, this is the #2 choice where it'll happen, after Undertaker vs. Roman Reins. I think fans have quietly grown tired of Ambrose's shallow "brawler" act. They are less and less entertained by him. With as competitive as professional wrestling is today, I just don't get how a schlub like Baron Corbin makes it. If I want to see some grungy dude with a receding hairline, cutoff t-shirts, and limited repertoire fight, I'll go to the bar down by the factory in my town. Corbin wins, dropping Ambrose to Dolph Ziggler-esque territory.

Chris Jericho vs. Kevin Owens- This will be one of the best matches of the night. They have built this up well, both can play heels of the highest order, and heel vs. heel will drive the crowd crazy. They will eat this shit up. It is a testament that an aging wrestler long into the twilight of his career like Jericho can still pull off Kayfabe to make a match like this seem realistic. Jericho FTW.

Bailey/Flair/Banks/Jax- The best the Divas have to offer, all in the same ring. My *guess* is that all 3 team up on Jax to basically knock her out, and then the other 3 settle it. My fear is that Flair pins Banks while Bayley is out of the ring, and we have to stomach her as the Divas champion for another 6-8 months. No way Banks wins- either Bayley will retain, or Flair wins it back. Prolly Flair.

Cena and Bella vs. Miz and Marse- Normally I would hate a match like this, but I have to give John Cena credit: As much as I dislike him, at the end of every PPV, his match always ends up being one of the best ones, and it's usually not close. I'm still not convinced Marse can wrestle at all, so my guess is Bella and Marse basically take each other out early on, and then it's Cena vs. Miz. Miz hasn't had a legit match in some time, so I hope he shows up. Cena can build almost anyone up. Still, no way Cena loses on WM.

Shane McMahon vs. AJ Styles- Along with Jericho/Owens, this should be a candidate for best match of the night. I respect the shit out of Shane. He doesn't really have much wrestling ability, but he's such a strong showman and presence that it doesn't matter. Shane vs. Undertaker should've been completely unbelievable, but it was fucking awesome. This is going to be a great match, and I could see either taking it. Leaning Styles.

HHH vs. Seth Rollins- This is the 3rd of my 3 matches I really want to see. My only concern here is that some bullshit interference taints what's going to be a good 1/2 hour straight of awesome wrestling. HHH will win to try to set up Rollins later, but it's fucking Wrestlemania, so I hate when they do setups here for some crap PPV down the road.

Undertaker vs. Roman Reins- I'm going to hate this one. In his never-ending, mother-fucking quest to build up Roman Reins as a face despite evvvvvvvvvvvvveryone over the age of 10 despising this fucking one-trick pony with every shred of our existence, Vince is going to do it. He's going to have Reins win, assuming that beating Undertaker at WM is the ultimate putover. But it won't work, and fans are going to boo the fucking shit out of it.

Bray Wyatt vs. Randy Orton- I just hated the writing leading up to this one so, so much that I don't even really care who wins. It was embarrassingly bad. I feel like WWE has basically neutered the pure heat that Wyatt brought to the company, and nothing short of Orton pulling off an awesome win is going to save this one. Orton I guess?

Goldberg vs. Brock Lesnar- I feel like this one is going to end up being as bad as the Main Event at WMXX which got both of these guys boo'd out of the ring. WWE painted themselves into a corner here. They can't continue to have Lesnar get his ass kicked in less than 30 seconds, because that's going to eventually hurt his brand. At the same time, I fear they won't allow Goldberg to just have a legitimate loss, so some stupid-ass interference will happen which will drive the crowd nuts. I just don't get the point of having a belt on the line at all. With both of these guys basically on legends contracts, to have the most important belt in WWE held by a guy that's only going to wrestle 3-4 x a year is a waste. This match would've actually been better if it were a non-sanctioned match. Less storyline to worry about.

Lesnar will win, but it will happen in such a way that puts neither guy over.


Overall, WMXXXIII is going to hinge on the following 3 matches for me:

Jericho vs. Owens
Shane McMahon vs. AJ Styles
HHH vs. Seth Rollins

If those 3 are as great as they can be, it will salvage some potentially terrible matches, and whatever damage Taker/Reins and Lesnar/Goldberg does to the brand.

Have to disagree with a few things things from your post.

I vehemently disagree with your assessment of Alexa Bliss. She's improved her work a TON. She was an afterthought when she was called up at the draft and she's to the point that she's one of the best females on the roster and certainly the best on Smackdown.

Neville has carried the Cruiserweight division. I doubt they take the title off of him just yet.

If anyone but Strowman wins the Andre Battle Royal, I'll eat my hat. I'd guess they tease Zayn or Show coming close to eliminating him at the end, but it's gotta be Strowman. They have huge plans for him.

They better be careful not to sabotage Stroman the way they did Bray Wyatt. WWE seems incapable of writing for guys that are too new to push for a belt, and when they get stuck in the not-quite-top-card limbo, that's when bad things happen.
