    Wow, Orton taking Bray’s promo, nice WWE, nice.

    • wwm

      As if Bray was the first person to say that in wrestling. I remember watching video of Flair from like 30 years ago saying the same things.

    • Jam

      I wouldn’t call it “Bray’s promo” considering the fact I’ve heard a ton of superstars before him say the same thing.

    So Orton and Reigns for NoC, again? Maybe Orton wins by nefarious means this time?

      stop crying about it

      • Nicole Hannan

        It sucks, cause The Wyatt Family is and will be one of the most talented factions in WWE history and they are putting them aside like they doing with Bo Dallas. WWE is putting aside great talent just because they don’t want to put aside Cena or Orton or even Triple H, Can we just have some change and some ICE CREAM BARS!?!?

        • ray

          I do agree with you on that

        • ray

          i’m tired of seeing orton or cena in the spotlight even tho i like cena but damn come on. Especially brock lesner i can’t stand him

    • VARiiATION

      More like setting up for The Usos vs Stardust and Goldust at NOC

    • http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3769949/ thatpj

      Thats old news, theyve been buried since they lost to Usos in that OMGEPICMATCH at battleground

    Hmmm…..RVD getting protected…interesting

  • Jesse Reid

    Blah, blah… Wonder who Reigns will pointlessly face in next weeks Smackdown main event? And I’m not saying that Harper and Rowan are being buried, but I have noticed they’ve been distanced from Bray lately, which IMO is a mistake. Also, I’m just loving Seth Rollins’ development, maybe WWE doesn’t drop the ball on him.

    Cesaro wins again!!!!

  • Jam

    It’s about time they give Natalya some decent wins as of late. Especially against a Divas champion. I’m guessing she’d square off against whoever the champion is after Night of Champions. And no, I don’t care if Eva Marie pinned the Divas champion (AJ at the time). She may have good looks but she isn’t Divas champion worthy, yet.

  • Jesse Reid

    Also, this may seem harsh, but I’m VERY pleased that Rose isn’t going anywhere with that shitty, stupid gimmick. I hate that garbage. Seriously.. Maybe if the dude had some other gimmick, I would like him. But the whole Rosebud bullshit really gets on my nerves.

  • matthewgarriet

    If anyone is going to win the tag championships it sholud be the Wyatts or The Ascension
