- Ryback is in line for a major push coming out of his current bullying gimmick. Those who work in WWE merchandising have been told to go heavy on coming up with ideas for him. Usually when they get that word it means not just a big push but a babyface turn.

– WWE apparently changed the planned finish to the CM Punk vs. Brock Lesnar SummerSlam match in the middle of last week. This could be because The Undertaker has agreed to work Lesnar at WrestleMania XXX and if that’s going to be one of the main events, Lesnar had no business losing at SummerSlam and going into WrestleMania with a 2-3 record.

– As seen on RAW, John Cena mentioned that he was advised to skip SummerSlam and cancel the Daniel Bryan match because of his elbow injury. Cena was telling the truth there. He insisted on doing the match and putting Bryan over before taking time off to have surgery. Cena’s rehab will be part of the storylines on several new episodes of WWE Total Divas.

    There is one way to turn Ryback they should make it a major turn. Since Bryan is fighting off the Shield along with Randy Orton. Yes I say why not bring back Nexus yes that mean Wade Barrett as a face. But think of the pop and the money.

    On Taker vs Lasner it is why Lasner came to the WWE it about time it happen. I hate to say it I know people may not want to hear it. I hope Brock Lasner ends the steak. It just makes sense Wrestlmania 30 who better then Brock Lasner.

    *sigh* They should have pushed SUPER hard (as in give him whatever he wants) for Taker vs. Sting at WM27. That would have been the match of the night (and the one really worth watching) hands down. Instead we get Taker vs. HHH 2, after having two straight years of Taker/HBK. And honestly, I know I’ve said this before, but Taker should have hung it up after going 20-0. There is literally no more point in continuing to wrestle, even if it’s just one or two matches a year. The guy is already to the point he said he never wanted to get to, being a shadow of his former self, no hair, not in great shape anymore, major injury/healthy issues…..I LOVE Undertaker, greatest wrestler of all time in my opinion, other than Bret Hart. But there was no reason to ever go beyond 20-0.

    Undertaker vs leaner at Mania… Yuck. I really don’t think taker will be able to handle Brocks aggressive style, I already for see that match injuring taker.

    We all know Vince still has visions of Ryback becoming as popular as Goldberg. He probably sees the RYBACK, RYBACK, RYBACK! chants in his sleep.

    I don’t mind them pushing Ryback – but they should do it in a way where it is really good not in a way its gonna die. My idea would be, give him a manager but keep as a heel. The reason for that is because he is terrible on the mic, having a heel manager would boast up as a heel. So he shouldn’t talk at any point. I would say Paul Heyman as a manager but he has too many clients already. So a good on mic manager and keep the bully gimmick ryback and thats a good push. My other idea would be a faction but there are like 2 factions already, brining a 3rd one wouldn’t make any sense anyway. But yeah, Line him up with a manager, keep the bullying gimmick and thats a push for the WHC only.

    Yeah, I forgot there was 3 HHH matches. For some reason I only had it in my head that there was two.
    Still dont quite understand why a loss to Punk would have affected the Taker match.
    Thats saying that there is going to be no more to the Punk feud.

    All this anti-bullying and they want to turn the bully of the WWE face? C’mon. I see him in the main event picture again, only to lose to a top face… again.

    He lost to HHH at Mania.

    Ryback push? They pushed him as a babyface and despite some fan support he never truly got over. The pushed him as a heel. Nobody cared.
    When will they realise that the constant Goldberg chants are not a positive thing?

    On the subject of Lesnar, am I missing something here? To my knowledge it would have been a 2-2 record had he lost. He lost to Cena, won twice to HHH which gives him a 1 loss 2 win record. Losing to Punk would have just made it 2 losses and 2 wins.
