    Football: Bayern Seek the CHOsen One

    Then they have to be given time as well and chelsea managers dont really get that. They are expected to bring results immediately. When you have a culture like that its hard for managers to pick the young guy who isnt the finished product over someone with less potential upside but more experience who can probably get the job done.

    Yeah I picked them as one to go down at the start of the season like most people, what I was getting at was Wagner leaving was basically resignation from him and the club that they had to start preparing for life in the championship. They got away with not scoring last year because a few clubs that had been there for a while severely underperformed.

    Huddersfield were down when Wagner left if chelsea werent going to show up against them then Sarri would have been in all sorts of bother

    To be fair I havent seen any of the hughlights yet but if Mitrovic got away with a couple of questionable decisions its evening things up from a few he hasnt been given this season

    Well if its a work they sure burried him on raw. No kick out and Rollins was even allowed to do his foot stomping burn it down show off bit before the kerbstomp which is never allowed to work for a face, because showing off and getting away with it is pretty much a heel move. After the promo to finish raw I dont really even want to see a triple threat at mania, I just want to see Ronda vs Becky and turn Ronda heel because the crowd is already starting to turn on her a bit. If Ronda is leaving no need for a heel turn and Becky goes over at mania. If shes staying on she turns heel to keep hold of the title gets massive heat. Have an angle where she hurts Becky and Becky goes off for a month 'injured' comes back and rides the crowd support fights back to number 1 contender and becomes the first one to beat Ronda at Summerslam. If main roster storylines could go for longer periods of time that would be a cool way to do it.

    Yeah I knew the circumstances of the kotr win and it doesnt suprise me after listening to Austin that he would be the one pushing the shirt idea, he seems very into the merchandising part of the business. Ambrose leaving really isnt a massive suprise his program with Rollins has fallen flat, funnily enough his segment when interacting with hhh on raw was probably as good as he has been since coming back. Probably head to AEW which would be pretty big for them especially if AJ lets his contract run out which is apparently around WM time.

    I think the yes movement with Bryan was a pure baby face where I see what Becky is doing as being more like Stone Cold where he calls himself a 'tweener' where he was a face despite doing a lot of things where he was borderline being a heel, he was still getting cheered though. The best thing Becky could do now is throw an improvised line out that will sell merch, im not sure the man tagline is quite it although there seems to be a lot of those shirts in the crowd. Obviously noone is going to drop a line as iconic as Austin 3:16 though.

    Its a very wwe thing to have happen and bloody Nia hurting Becky and her bleeding everywhere was about the best thing that could happen to her. Her mouthing off to Charlotte while hobbling on 1 leg was pretty great. Its great that wwe went with it when she accidentaly got over as a face when they tried to turn her heel. Its fun listening to stone cold and Jerichos podcasts when they talk about how these things work.

Its a different level of skill and speed. I see your point about the diving its a blight on the mens game and needs something done about it. Artificial turf might be tough to fall on but you are always sure of the bounce and grip level as opposed to real grass.

    There were rumours they werent allowed to do it for years after Lesnar landed on his head. Ricochet was the first I had seen in the last couple of years that had done it from the top turnbuckle.

    Asuka/Becky was great just slightly suprised it was Asuka going over clean, thought Flair might have done something to cost Becky leading to Becky entering the rumble but it still worked. I really enjoyed the Ronda/Banks match and Balor/Lesnar match. 2 out of AJs last 3 big feuds have seemed to not work when they get in the ring, I think Joe was the exception but these were 'dream' matches with Bryan and Nakamora and just havent seemed to get going for me. I was pissed they put Nia in the rumble but happy to see her catch some of the more iconic finishing moves - superkick, 619 and RKO. If she was actually semi decent in the ring and didnt look like she was going to kill or maim someone everytime she does a move it would be a different story. As usual takeover was great although the womens title match didnt do much for me. The 2 mens title matches were awesome and great to showcase different styles with one an amazing spotfest and the other telling a great story. The storytelling in general surrounding Gargano and Ciampa has been great and ongoing for what nearly 2 years now? The Takeover card is a great showcase for what happens with fewer matches on a card that are allowed to tell a story. Riddle looks like he will be a big star but his opponent did nothing for me and looked a step off the pace Riddle wanted to work at. Also of all the insane things ive watched shane mcmahon do that shooting star press might just have been the most impressive. It seems wwe may have cracked open the door for some previously 'banned' moves to be allowed to creep back in, if thats the case then more varied skillsets can really only be a good thing to add the sense of holy crap to some events but only if they are used sparingly and not just a cheap pop in basically every match.

    Matthews is apparently out for Sri Lanka as well so looks like an even bigger task despite Australias batting issues

    Haha yeah they kind of botched Bryans return until he went heel but I think it looks like Miz and Shane will have a feud that finishes at Mania. It is odd watching Miz not be a heel but it surely cant last long he is just too good as the bad guy.

    Yeah thats a tough one, I was kind of hoping he would come out as the demon and get the win to shock everyone but I cant see them taking the title off Lesnar until wrestlemania unfortunately. Been listening to talk is Jericho episodes the last few days and his chat with Mustafa Ali was awesome, made me want to see him get the big push, would love to see him and Bryan for the wwe championship at wrestlemania.
