@barrock: Meltzer said he isn't facing Rusev or Triple H, even though both were teased last year. Rock wants to face Brock, that is known. So if Brock retains, Rock may challenge for the title. If Brock loses, Rock may enter the Rumble and get tossed by Brock to set it up.

Personally, I think bringing the Rock in fucking sucks all of the dicks. If he is here for more than a show opening crowd pop, then fuck him. I've had enough of his once a year wrestling superstar bullshit. He is a cancer to the WWE because whenever he decides to come back, they make a hole for him and it fucks everything else up more than it is currently fucked up.

@thunderstorm101: It's basically flawless. There haven't been any issues with the Network since a couple weeks after launch. It even handled WrestleMania 30 without much issue.

@corevi: Hah. I dunno. They are probably going to lose to the New Day anyway with Cesaro taking the first fall clean in the middle of the ring, so it doesn't really matter.

@yesiamaduck: I think it was said on Observer Radio that this is the first PPV since Survivor Series 1993 to not have a singles match.

I'm still pretty pissed that Triple H got his friends a spot on the PPV but Kidd and Cesaro are fucking pre-show curtain jerkers.

@papercut: @drx25: How bout we add some more stakes this year? I'll gift a year of Giant Bomb Premium to whoever ends up at the top of the leaderboard this year. Put it into the rules every month so I don't forget.

@papercut: But the thing is, other than entrant number 27, the statistics don't actually support that the later numbers are where the winners come from. You are right in that it is where a lot of the higher level talent comes in, but it is also generally a high level heel, except for surprise returns which are usually babyfaces.

Pat Patterson has done a pretty fantastic job over the years of mixing up where the winner comes from, and where the talent comes from. Even for the past few years I think the number 27 guy has been instantly eliminated, and it has to be because he/someone noticed there were more 27 winners than any other spot.

Right now, according to Meltzer, Reigns is still their guy. If we all picked Reigns, we'd have the best chance at the winner coming out of our spot. But that would also make this a fairly depressing thread.

@gunslingerpanda: In what world did Breeze dominate that match? It was back and forth the whole time.

Also, if it wasn't mentioned, Black Cole Sun has been shipped out to folks, so next week's TNT is set.

Young Bucks won tag team of the year. I voted for them there like I did here, because they are by far the best tag team of the year.

I also like how the WWE basically won all of the worst categories. And how the three Raw announcers are the worst, Regal is the best, but they don't want him on commentary.

That company is so fucking fucked.

@defaultprophet: No, but I do know it costs a lot to ship to the venue and set up.

Do...do you think it doesn't cost anything because it already exists?

Guys, lets be serious about why the Elimination Chamber was cut. They are cutting their budget, and it cost a lot of money. That is really the beginning and the end of it.
