- Regarding how WWE booked CM Punk to win over The Shield at TLC, it’s said he had to win with both John Cena and Daniel Bryan already booked to lose. Plus, it created more drama for the eventual breakup of The Shield. At RAW, they had Roman Reigns get the win over Punk with the idea Reigns is eventually going to be the “real golden boy” since he has the look and sports background WWE officials like, as opposed to Punk and Bryan who will never 100% get past the size and look issues. They also felt Punk was protected from the loss by having the segment with Shawn Michaels, which people would remember more than the fact he was pinned.

- Regarding Paul Heyman’s tweet on Monday where he said he had a talk with Brock Lesnar about new WWE World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton, it was just something to get people talking and there is nothing currently planned in that direction.

- We’ve noted before how WWE has big plans for Roman Reigns in the 2014 Royal Rumble match. It’s said that those plans right now are even bigger than anyone would have thought.

    Im calling it. Roman Reigns Royal Rumble winner and this will break the Shield up!. You heard it here first people!

    Bryan ain’t no kid, he’s 32.

    Except this is only the words or dirt sheet reporters. Once again, pinch of salt time.

  • Daniel Stockwell

    It’s Yabba Do – like Fred Flintstone.

    It comes from the MOP track that Cena sampled.

    Kane always dominates RR tho. For him to just go in there and not be noticed is like Taker not having the match of the year at WM.
    Kane is Royal Rumble, and it will be interesting to see if he will partake in it this year.

    WWE wants there talent to come off as larger than life, Reigns looks like a tough strong dude and Bryan looks like a homeless guy, so I have no problem with Reigns being pushed.

    That very statement “Punk and Bryan will never 100% get beyond their size and look issues”, sums up everything that is wrong with WWE, and with the way Vince and HHH think. They are what is wrong with wrestling.

    Sheamus – “It’s a shameful thing, lobsterhead!”

    Kofi Kingston – “S.O.S. I’m not Shelton!”

    AJ – “Ripe it up!”

  • Josh

    It’s “rapadoo”, not avenue, though I guess that makes as much sense as any of the other retarded lyrics in that song.

  • MrDr3w

    The two top workers in the organization fighting again is fine by me. Would you rather see Daniel Bryan kill himself? The kid has had two stingers while in matches so far. Sure, he’s fun to watch sometimes, but he’s a liability.

  • ddfindl

    lol…then, wait…what’s this?! “Br-br-br-br-br- AVENUE!!! Bah badda baaahhh…”JOHN CENA COMES OUT AS THE 31ST ENTRANT?!! *attitude adjustment* LOLCENAWINS!! Cena vs. Orton for the 9000th time.

  • millerj265

    Well hopefully if they do that they at least follow through with it unlike when they had kane dominate the 01 rumble and then did nothing with him the nxt few months.

  • Jeff Wurtz

    Reigns comes in number 1 and eliminates everybody.
