    So nakamura with the rumble win, the crowd certainly got what they wanted. For a minute it looked like they were going to give it to Reigns, and everyone was so desperate for him not to win. Biggest surprise of the night was Rey Mysterio popping up at number 27. When his music hit I didn't quite mark out like I did when the Hardy's returned last year, but I certainly pumped my fists in the air. Tell you what he looked better than he has done in years. Very fit and able to do his high flying moves easily.

    Nakamura has already called out Styles for the title at Wrestlemania, what if styles losses it at Elimination Chamber though?

    Lesnar retains too, although I expect we will still see him vs strowman at mania.

    With regards to the womens match, some nice touches there. Ronda Rousey finally makes it to the WWE. Expert her to become the new beth phoenix.

    Thought the Rumble was awful and I think that's now me officially done with WWE. No interest in anyone or anything going on so I think I'll be skipping 'Mania for the first time ever.

    The lack of intensity, unpredictability and genuine excitement to the product these days is just painful to sit through. It's been on the dwindle for 11-12 years but it's becoming unbearable now.

    Mens Rumble
    Hurricane was surprising as he's recently been in TNA/GFW/Impact whatever they're called this week as a manager but a good entry. Rey not so much. It's interesting how the crowd forgets that he received boos a couple of years ago when he took Daniel Bryan's spot, but gets a cheer last night. Think it's just a cameo though, he's been heavily linked with the other promotion, but agreed he looks better than he has in years. On balance the right person won. Someone who hasn't had a shot yet.
    Adam Cole can feck right off. Just don't see anything in him. Why he has got the push and attention so quickly when there's other better performers in NXT that deserved the shot. Just pandering to the indy darlings I suppose. Expected to see Lars Sullivan who looks a legitimate beast. Two minds about Sanity, They need to be debuted as a group but they've been ready for a while.
    I particularly like what they did to Tye Dillinger. This needs to be a running annual joke. Him always getting the 10 spot and then never making it to the ring. Also Heath Slater vs Shamus was brilliant.

    Womens Rumble Glad they put it on last as I was looking forward to it and after 4 hours I needed it.
    If anything there were too many returning "legends" in the women's match that took too much of the spotlight. Lita (my favourite) was a given, although her moonsault is looking pretty dangerously low these days. Molly Holly was a big surprise, but everyone else they had already wheeled out for RAW 25. Again on balance the right person won I feel. Disappointed there wasn't a few more from NXT but I think most of the decent talent has been brought up already. The two they did give shots to are the most polished in the division.
    Bella twins can **** off.

    I thought both title matches were pretty poor. Especially the Monster vs Beast vs Machine. It was just a spotfest which ended far to quickly for my liking. It's time Strowman is crowned, but I'm glad it was Kane that took the pin. Styles vs Owen & Zayn it'll be interesting to see where that goes. The fact that the wrong person took the pin.

    Tag matches were a bit meh.

    It's a shame that with all this women's revolution clap trap that there was no space for a womens singles match.

    Lets see who gets called up this week, there's normally a couple. My guess is Sanity will debut.

    Haven't watched WWF WWE for a while now - but I was tempted to walk into work on Monday doing the Vince McMahon walk in the presence of a large number of Spurs fans;)

    I was bored a few weeks ago and watched a few episodes of Raw from 2000, leading up to Wrestlemania, at the height of The Rock and my own wrestling fever. Magical times.

    Also extremely depressing considering the thoroughly pathetic state that WWE is in now.

    Watch NXT and soon NXT UK as well as the Mae young classic.
    Stuff Vince has no hand in is decent.

    The lastest NXT takover was the best WWE I'd seen in awhile. All hail thomas ciampa

    Roman Reigns has has to vacate the Universal Championship due to a diagnosis of leukaemia; he’d been in remission since 2008 it it’s returned.

    Like him or loathe him, sometimes life is really unfair. Hope he beats it again and is back on our screens again soon.

    Saw the other day. Dreadful news for him, hope he recovers. I certainly don’t have any issues with him as a character but feel he was pushed as the next poster boy in a way that felt far too inorganic.

    Caught Evolution last night.

    Decent show, Becky/Charlotte is a legitimate MOTY candidate.

    I can't think of a single reason why the world cup went the way it did or the Universal title.

    Have you watched NXT? It's pretty good.

    NXT is decent enough, but the "main" WWE product is dead. It's been on the slide for 15 years and it continues to sink to new depths. I literally cannot watch it any more, it's horrendous.

    AEW is looking very promising as a potential genuine, mainstream rival.

    I thought it got a bit better recently. TNA (or whatever they're called this week) on the other hand is well and truly done. WWE need to pick up Rosemary but everyone else is hopeless.

    I agree AEW is looking good, I hope it will Cause WWE to make some changes. They pushed Kofi Kingston last RAW before the Chamber... so that's something I guess
