Zayn needs to leave WWE, it's a joke how he's been booked.

The mystery person trying to injure Roman is RIKISHI!!!!! He's done it before

I'm so wishful that it's Cena, but they won't do anything fun like that.

cenas pretty much retired. At this point hes probably on like an Undertaker schedule. Wrestlemania with an occasional RAW appearance sprinkled in every now and then

Didn't they already say who it was? Or are you guys predicting a swerve?

Right, but he could have potentially had a Summerslam program with Reigns -- I mean if 52 year old Bill Goldberg can, I'm sure Cena can too.

They didn't explicitly say it was Rowan, just that he was around when the backstage incident happened.

Doing all this for a one-off Cena match would be a huge waste. The idea should be to elevate a guy into an instant top feud and get him over. Of course, I say *should* because its WWE/Vince and they'll screw up anything

I'd be for that if there was any sort of conceivable shot for that guy to go over Reigns. We all know that won't happen.

I would love to see a guy like EC3 get the rub here. Even if/when he loses it would still elevate him. But of course, at this point they've ruined him so bad that even if he ever gets a push, its gonna have to be in the mid-card first

Most people acknowledge that Reigns is a very good wrestler. I don't think people believe it when they chant he can't wrestle. They're just doing it because everyone else is. It's a thing you do at a live WWE show, unfortunately.

Nah its a pretty mob mentality that fans everywhere eat up. As suggested here before: if Roman came from ROH or some other high rated Indy and was the exact same current wrestler, would he get the same hate that he gets now?

Agreed the Reigns/Buddy match was great. Buddy could have used that outing as a stepping stone, but then they have him get destroyed by Rowan without even trying to fight back.

I don't understand the thirst for a Bludgeon Brothers reunion. I'd like to see Harper doing something by himself or wrestling for another company.

Shall we put a bonus point in KIA for guessing the attacker?
