Alright Rasslin fans, it's been a while.

Just reading back through posts - Fen I have only seen Jericho v Omega from Wrestlekingdom but enjoyed it immensely. Not that it was the best match I've ever seen but there is just something special about seeing Jericho in the NJPW ring.

I haven't really thought about the rumble but I'll play it safe and go for:

Mens: Roman Reigns (to set up match where he overcomes brock at WM, boooo). Maybe Bryan as a surprise rank outsider?

Womens: Ronda Rousey surprise entrant and winner maybe? ends up facing Asuka at WM. Oh but then I have no idea what Charlotte is doing. Shit I have no idea on the womens Rumble.

To be honest I love the nostalgic old school Raw stuff, great chance to reminisce. I will be catching that after work on Tues 23rd with a beer.

I've managed to truly f-up my mania viewing this year, moving house on that day as things stand so wont be set up to watch argh. Hope I can get an earlier date sorted.


It's in Philly though Skip, surely Vince isn't stupid enough to give Roman the win here? There would be a riot if that were to happen. In fact if Cena won, I'd expect a fan revolt also. Dbry coming out would be a monstrous pop, only a CM Punk return would be louder IMO.

I have been a tad disappointed with the nostalgia episodes of recent years. The Raw 1000 was actually a bad show, with the convenient retcon that DX were responsible for the attitude era (due to the fact that Austin couldn't make it that night).

I am looking forward to this though with the simulcast from the Manhattan and Barclays center.

I am praying for all sanity and hope that Taker announces his retirement (Enough is enough!).

Got round to watching Raw25 last night, seemed appropriate given that’s the usual night it was on.

Not really sure it was worth the effort in all honesty.

Not many highlights and when Cena came out I realised why the current product is so poor and turned me away many many years ago.

Most of them have not aged well and it’s never nice to watch your heroes in such a poor state.

The biggest let down was the absence of Mick Foley...the individual involved in the most pivotal moment of the Attitude era. Regardless of prior commitments it was not the same without him.

Plus no Dwayne or Brett = WTF.

The irony is the current product is better than it was during previous major raw moments. I.e. Raw 100 and Raw 15 but this show was just bad. Foley's absence was sad but not totally beyond saving and technically speaking Bret was not a WWE talent during the Attitude Era. What stank for me was the opportunity they had to really put on a good show with the two venues they totally stank up both places with paint by numbers booking instead of being creative. What stinks even more is that they knew they could have done it but chose not to :(

I would've been asking for a refund if I'd been at the Manhattan centre, the place looked amazing but boy were the fans shortchanged! Just look at some of the fan vids on youtube to see what they thought about it!

Takeover: Gargano vs Almas was something else, I can't remember the last time I enjoyed a WWE match as much as this. Rest was ok with the AoP vs Undisputed probably being my 2nd favourite.

I knew I had the men's Rumble wrong when it was announced that the winner could choose their champion to face. This clearly meant they were going to set up Nakamura - AJ while being able to save Reigns - Lesnar and not have the Philly crowd take a giant shit on Roman. Mysterio is in the best shape I have seen him for years, I couldn't actually believe it was him.

I actually enjoyed the women's rumble more as it had a lot of nostalgic returns (I love that shit). The only downside for me was Ronda turning up, looking a bit of a dumbass rather than a killer, and er, doing some overly long pointing.

Solid enough show overall, not spectacular but great by recent standards.

Roll on Mania!

Fair points Skip. Hard to disagree, but seriously Nakamura is literally the only person who looks cool pointing at a Mania sign. I am sick to death of the pointing at it in general though! We are Wrestling fans FFS, we know what wrestle bastard mania is god damnit!

The Gargano Almas match was just ... wow!... wow wow wow. In ring story telling at its best. I also love the stuff with Ciampa attacking him this week and that heat he is getting is real nuclear heel heat. Whod of thunk it? With nuanced story telling and a proper arc someone is getting a legit heel reaction from the crowd.

All in all though. Roman BS aside.. I am just so chuffed we are getting this:

You’re probably right about Brett but I always considered him to be the catalyst for what the era became.

Part of me looks at the NWO and considers that too, to be part of the Attitude era. I know that’s not strictly true it’s just my reinterpretation of history. I don’t ever recall the phrase “too sweet” on Raw during the Attitude era?

I never saw Raw 100 or 15 but will make the time to do so.

I genuinely have no love or interest for the current product, the only chance it has would have been if my son got sucked in but even he would prefer to watch a Raw episode from 20 odd years ago than what’s available now.
