    Bah gawd it would be epic and while it is still possible am not as sure because Shawn is a little fat and for mania 30 he got himself into an even better shape then his prime to hit a super kick before 100K people. He takes wrestling very very seriously and is a perfectionist, he will never return for a match because he doesn't like how wrestlers abuse the retirement stipulation beyond his respect for Taker and going out at the top of his game. He questions whether he'd be able to perform at that level if he were to go now as well and I think he could still go but it just goes to show how insecure Shawn is, watching his Mr.Wrestlemania DVD he spoke about how nervous he'd be before a mania and really insecure; he said he was glad to finally sought of get a mania off at the 22nd event vs Vince, no pressure given that it was an undercard bout and just have some fun but it still ended up being a MOTY candidate PWI gave it MOTY award as well.

    What I love about this Rumble is that it's so unpredictable that even the insiders don't have a clue! the bookies are repeatedly changing their favourite for the match.

    @Adil_94 I can't fathom the hype around Omega, if he does show up (even though his contract expires at the end of the month with NJPW) I'd be like meh. IWC casual smarks are the equivalent of Birmingham City fans, beyond narrow minded

    Backstage News on The Undertaker Needing Surgery in the Future

    According to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, The Undertaker is in need of full hip replacement surgery, however he is trying to put it off until he officially retires from in-ring competition.

    Undertaker will be working his first match since having hip surgery last year when he competes in the WWE Royal Rumble match this Sunday night.
    He truly is the Deadman @Markhor I doubt you expected him to still be active in 2017 after he made his debut in 1990 that too given his frame!

    OMG is The Undertaker still there? How about "Heartbreak kid" Shawn Michaels, HHH and The Rock? I lost interest in it many years back. Won't pay extra for PPV events, no way. Don't even watch RAW or Smackdown anymore. Is that Pak guy Mustafa Ali in the Rumble?

    Undertaker wrestles like once a year during Wrestlemania season, Shawn Michaels permanently retired in 2010 and The Rock shows up to make appearances here and there but doesn't have time to wrestle/too-risky given his hollywood career.

    Am not sure he's in the Rumble but remains a world class talent who they are pushing!

    Taker, Goldberg, Cena , Brock Lesnar , Chris Jericho and AJ Styles are all booked for the Rumble PPV. Kurt Angle could appear given that he has returned to the WWE after 10 years for a hall of fame induction. With the Rumble in San Antonio maybe Shawn will appear on the PPV to, it's the same arena where the Rumble was held in 1997 the Alomo dome which has a 60K capacity; Shawn won the WWE title from Sid in the same place back in 97.

    Flair will never retire!!! much like our boom boom!



    Seriously though, he is pretty much done. WWE kinda forced him to retire in 2008 but he still wrestled in TNA lol then he left and now he's under contract with WWE to help promote their products and services but he is pretty much done and too old now, same can be said for Hogan. Bret was a favourite of mine to even though Shawn is my old time favourite I strangely love all the guys he feuded with as well.

    Get your predictions in mate! this year we got quiet a few old school guys who have returned! The Rumble match will have Taker, Goldberg, Lesnar and possibly Kurt Angle as well

    The dead man is the one to beat in the RR. Since it's all fixed I am gonna say that Goldberg will win it, he's a dinosaur.

    AJ vs Cena - AJ goes over

    Royal Rumble - Samoa Joe wins (Final 4: Joe, Strowman, Jericho, Corbin).


    2 possibilities exist: Either we are alone in the Universe or we are not. Both are terrifying.

    Yeah I might be a little busy so worst case scenario the thread will be up around a day or so before the event because I finish on the Friday.

    Lol they wanted Samoa Joe and got Samoan Joe.

    Cena vs AJ was superb and I did not mind Cena winning.
    Roman vs KO was great despite the overdose of kickouts and the silly ending.

    It was a great PPV right until the royal rumble itself which despite a hot start, died in the middle and totally nosedived once the part timers showed up and threw everyone out like jobbers. Yes guys. Way to make the future look strong. Roman coming out at #30 was a pure troll and I was not so much PO'ed as just underwhelmed. A transparent attempt to garner cheers for Randy. If they wanted Bray vs Randy, might as well have Bray win and let Randy win at Elimination Chamber. Would have been fresh and given crowd something they liked.


    2 possibilities exist: Either we are alone in the Universe or we are not. Both are terrifying.

    Are they setting up Reigns for a full fledged heel turn? They sent Reigns at no.30 with the knowledge he'd get nuclear heat so the fans would pop for the (been there done that) Orton.

    True, they missed a big trick there! I'd have loved Bray to win the Rumble with Orton getting the strap in the chamber. Then these guys complain that the current roster lacks the star power of part-timers with rubbish booking like this. But all is not lost if Bray is the one standing tall as Wrestemania goes off air but it will probably be Broid with the Universal title just trying to think of your reaction

    Yeah it was, epic contest between AJ and Cena; did you notice how the fans dropped the lets boo Cena gimmick and popped huge for his 16th championship win? every time he lifted the title they cheered for him. AJ has had a brilliant run with the title and he was protected in the defeat, hopefully he has a high profile match at mania.

    Credit to Sami Zayn for his performance during the Rumble match itself, he bumped like crazy for everyone and was the MVP for me

    Bro even Goldberg winning the Universal title makes me sick. Wrestlemania seems skippable again this year. Way to screw over AJ, Dean and others who carried your company.

    Cena spent a year in the midcard making the US Title relevant and having classics. He earned the win. He even got pinned this week on SD. He is no Hogan.

    It is disgusting beyond words, I agree with you; in protest am thinking of not getting the WWE Network when Wrestlemania comes around.

    True, Cena deserves a lot more respect and fans are coming round to him; we're just annoyed by his gimmick but there's no denying he's one hell of a performer I mean seriously you just can't boo the guy when he drops classic after classic whilst having no issues to do the job. Hogan refused to do the job even past his prime when no longer on top vs HBK in 05 for example, the mans ego was the size of Jupiter.
