Looks like the Lars Sullivan push has ended already because he's walked out of two WWE events and gone home due to Anxiety issues.

With the rumored Main Event of Lynch vs. Rousey at Wrestlemania, this doesn't design a clear path for this match to happen. So, I would have had one of the other two win... I wouldn't be mad at Carmella winning at this point. Have Lynch enter the women's Rumble and have her win.

Then the Road to Wreslemania has focus. There's no confusion as to how Lynch is to face Rousey. Becky throws Smackdown under the bus, saying she has dominated the show, and the only thing she hasn't done is destroy the RAW Woman's Champion.

The flipside to this is that it would make Becky a Raw roster member, and the two biggest names fighting for the same prize, which could make for an amazing program (similar to Rock/Austin/Triple H in their IC days), but would leave SD a little thinner. RAW is the "flagship" so it would be a shot in the arm for them, but I get why they would want to leave some talent on SD.

I'm interested to see how they handle this, but I think they could have added some intrigue into what happens with Becky next going forward.

I think now, they have charlotte win the rumble and then challenge both of them

Then the triple threat main events mania

I remember Ed constantly called him Michelle Hammer and he eventually adopted that name. He was pretty much a bottom of the card job guy but was pretty entertaining.


RIP

By the way, anyone watch NXT UK Takeover: Blackpool?

Such a good card. Got to see some vintage Balor wrestling (from his Prince Devitt days), and WWE's newest signee (WALTER) looks like a certified badass.

So decided to go to NXT Takeover Phoenix and the Royal Rumble.

Always wanted to go to the Rumble and from Calgary the price for flights was just right.

Direct flights to Phoenix were $330 from the 25th to 28th.

NXT tickets were as cheap as $20 USD, and Royal Rumble tickets had a special 2 for 1 promo code (TMN241 - Ticketmaster still gouges you on fees of course).

Got a cheap hotel with a Hotwire hot rate and 2 of us were able to go for about $700CAD a person for flight, hotel, and tickets.

Only saw it starting Friday, and it was what pushed me and a buddy over the edge to go.

In the past Ticketmaster had allowed me to put the purchase price of my original tickets towards better tickets when the price had dropped. So you could try that.

Ok I thought Otis had a hilarious debut tonight. That was the most Otis way to debut Otis.

It was a whole weird segment.


First we had Alexa Bliss topless kinda. Then poor Alexa goes out and Heyman hogs the scene then Otis comes out and Alexa is looking like she was never told it was going to happen.


Yeah it was funny, I wonder if they're doing a mice and man tag team.

I love how it took Tucker and a whole backstage crew to wrestle Otis to the back again and get him out of his trance. Otis gonna be a huge horny pancake dropping NBA Jam lines when he's got the zoomies
