    So that gives away raw? Lesnar is back. Just in time for a feud with batista. I think that’s going to happen WM because when you think about it, it’s obvious

  • Tony Grigorovitch

    I don’t think he’s going to feud with Batista because the plans are to have Batista vs. Randy Orton for the title at WM 30. It also doesn’t make any sense for Lesnar to have a feud with Batista because they have no history. It would be a great match though but the WWE creative doesn’t realize what we want.

    • Bryan Thomas

      Don’t you think it’s bs that they spent this whole year pushing people Bryan only for them to throw batista in the main event?

      • Jason

        I’m going to clarify this. Now that both the world and the wwe titles are unified to be just 1 championship there is only going to be a selective few that’s going to be that “Top Guy” and these belts losing credibility over the years of just tossing them around to just anyone, i’m sure not every former champion will be holding them again. and i think with the way im seeing shit sad to say i think Daniel Bryan is going to be one of those guys with how everything is now going. The only chance Daniel Bryan has is to win MITB again cuz seeing him win a rumble anytime soon especially with batista coming back.. yeah good luck with that. especially since Batista is a Triple H guy.

        • Bryan Thomas

          Now i’m worried about ambrose’ rollins, sandow and ziggler.

          • Jason

            Well Reigns is said to be getting a push cuz of his ability and his family heritage since well he is related to the rock. As for Ambrose if they are going to unify the Intercontinental and united states championships than Ambrose should take that in my opinion. Rollins i see remaining as a tag team wrestler for awhile but if he does go singles he’ll be a mid carder. Sandow i dont know what the hell happened since it was expected for him to cash in that brief case and win but since Cena won it they needed credibility back to the world title to eventually unify it with the WWE title. As for Ziggler i read that he’s in the dog house after what he said about Triple H since he is taking control of this company with steph, But it just seems like Ziggler will remain a mid carder, since from what i hear WWE is focusing on pushing Muscular Big Guys, like Langston, Ryback(Hopefully without screwing him up again), and afew others so i can see that this is going to be a giant roster fuck up

          • Bryan Thomas

            The only ability i see in reigns is a simple ass spear. Rollins proved thaf reigns isn’t about shit when rollins face cena on smackdown and ambrose proved that reigns isn’t about shit when he faced cm punk

          • Ellsworth Allah

            roman reigns gon’ fall flat on his face he’s gon be the kenny dykstra ambrose /rollins mite be the dolph ziggler however in yrs to come

  • Bryan Thomas

    Ambrose gets pinned again. I’m not feeling this

  • mitzidemarco

    I wish the WWE would stop putting Wade Barrett in dark matches. I’m a fan of his and it’s annoying that they do this constantly.

  • Jamar

    Wrestle mania 30 Batista vs Brock Lesnar
    Nicknamed The Beast vs The Animal
    I like the sound of that !!!!

  • Bryan Thomas

    How can you all sit here and fall for that roman reigns hype?

  • cj

    Where tf is Aj ?

    • othersideJackass

      Thats what im saying…I aint watching No diva match that doesnt include AJ..

      • Ellsworth Allah

        lmaooo ur right

    • Jevonte Marquis Gore

      She was at a house show, I think.

  • othersideJackass

    THis smackdown sucks…no D bryan..the Wyatts lost..theres no Aj..the sucky ass bella twin won..AGAIN…no cm punk…YEP this smackdown is gonna suck ASSCHEEKS

    • Kyle Christie

      No CM Punk? Punk was on the show and won his match.


    Does Daniel Bryan come with the Wyatt family

  • Dale Jones

    No AJ? Then I am not interested!


      What is so special about AJ Lee?.

      • Dale Jones

        She’s fun, interesting, talented (you know actual wrestling and promo skills, something most of the other divas, especially the Total Bimbos, know almost nothing about), and she is the most beautiful of them all. She adds life to everything she is involved in. I could go on for hours about this.


          There are talented women in the divas division but for some reason they want AJ Lee to be in the spotlight.

          • Dale Jones

            That’s because she gets over with the crowd more than the rest, and simply out performs the rest. Some of those women are good for looks and nothing else. Some can actually wrestle, some can cut a promo on the microphone. AJ does it all and does it better. The people know how hard she works and has worked to get where she is and respect her because of it, and we want to see her. The others are just not as interesting or as talented as AJ.


    Smackdown looks like a pretty good show.

  • shouri

    I think Brock lesner vs Batista at WM 30 The Beast vsThe Animal dats wat best for business and cena vs orton for wwe world heavy weight championship in an I QUIT MATCH at WM 30 and the winner of beast vs animal will face the champion

  • Juanito Shet

    Not watching this. SmackDown has been AWFUL for a while now. Same goes for RAW.
