    Why wasn’t Kane used in the Rumble? Nobody really cares. Dude needs to retire along with Big Show and Mark Henry.

      Sadly he wasn’t missed at all. They could of done. Brothers of Destruction reunion but they’ve beat that horse to death. Henry made sense to use to put over Strowman same with BigShow.

    They need to encourage fans to chant AUSTIN ARIES during 205Live matches. Casual fans don’t know him at all, only brief hardcore fans are cheering him. Him having a banana at commentators booth is hilarious. He needs to use it against Neville maybe throw it at him or something lol. I like the idea of introducing him to the audience maybe as a guy with a attitude like Punk but is also cheats/steals like Eddie Guerrero so it’s okay to cheer him when he pokes people in the eyes. Ares vs Neville has potiental for WM33 Hope it’s not a Preshow.

      Yes. I agree with you 100%. Aries vs Neville could be gold if done right.
