And it's so good to see Batista doing John Cena's "I'm here for the fans even if they boo me or cheer me" rubbish. The fans are against him PLUS his character has always worked better as a heel. So, you've got this guy who the fans are legitimately booing and this guy who, not only wrestling fans in arenas but people in the wider world are chanting for, why on earth would you pi$$ those buyrates away by sticking with a "putting the boss' son in laws mates in main events" stance?
Because they honestly think they know best.
So far they have tried burying Bryan over and over again and it didn't work then they have tried aligning him with a heel faction only for the crowds to say 'nah were still going to cheer him' so much so that they had to quickly hurry the conclusion/change tactic when it became clear it wasn't going to work. They honestly don't get that doing what they are doing just helps push him more.
Then they have the stupid idea to gift a wrestlemania spot to HHH's mate as you say whilst not even giving a RR spot to THE guy ATM.

Has anyone else made the connection between the crowd reaction whilst DB was fighting against the 'family' and the problems the family's latest target has with the fans. Do the WWE backroom think the fans are that dumb?

Well, they've turned Boretista heel. Which means that currently it's heel vs heel at WM.

Guess we need Super Cena to save the day again

Thankfully creative got creative last night and that was one of the best segments for a while.
SMH playedit perfectly as did both HHH and DB.

WWE didn't have much choice due to the WWE universe :roll: pretty much telling Boorista to get the F out though.

But you know they're going to screw it up come WM. Either they'll book HHH as an unstoppable monster and squash DB or he'll[DB] will only just squeak a win and get screwed over in the main event

The ending of Raw was a lovely throwback.
Some have complained about the chair shot though. It seems they really have no clue about what extreme wrestling is.

It wasn't even a real chair shot as it hit the corner post unlike the now famous Mankind Vs Rock bout when IIRC Mick Foley took 13 chair shots to the head.

I genuinely don't know what to think right now after WM. Probably need to watch it again tomorrow to work out how I'm supposed to feel.

WOW just WOW.

spoilers below highlighted

HHH v Bryan - brilliant
Shield v Outlaws - bit unnecessary, surely they could have found a better use for the Shield
Battle Royal - a typical snoozefest but the dying stages were good and ending was a superb wm moment. Fitting winner.
Taker v Lesnar. Sorry if spoiling guys but that's the most shocking thing EVER in wrestling. Moreso than the Montreal screwjob.
Divas. glad with the ending.
Title triple threat - best title match in recent memory. It was so good that they managed to rescue the atmosphere after the Taker match. I do feel that Bryan's moment was slightly dampened by Lesnar v Taker though, but maybe thats paranoia, hell he won two matches at the biggest event in history and walked away with the belt - so I guess the yes movement can't be too greedy!

I'm with you cm punk - I need to watch it again. I can only assume that Lesnar is going to have a more steady run, albeit if just for a few months, in WWE and take the strap soon. Why else would they let him break it? I kinda wish it was CM Punk who did it now.

Best Mania in a few years regardless. At least since WM25 or 26. 28 was OK but 27 (Which I attended) and 29 sucked.

I'm just, I'm just in shock by it all. It's absolutely ridiculous.

WWE pull out the biggest swerve in wrestling history. Brock will have some intense heat tonight on Raw.

Given that Sting has now signed with WWE and is telling people "31", hes obviously going to be fighting Taker at WM 31, but would have been better if Taker was still undefeated.

RAW was awesome last night!
