Kid Rock's HOF induction is official:

https://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/rock/8240749/kid-rock-wwe-hall-of-fame-induction-wrestlemania-34

Is this the laziest induction ever? At least guys like Snoop Dogg, Drew Carrey, and Will Perry, did something physical and contributed to storylines but what exactly did Rock do other than perform two times?

Raw Preview : Quick Hits
The Big Dog and the “entitled” Universal Champion meet face-to-face
Can Bayley and Sasha Banks mend their fractured friendship?
Braun Strowman is a Monster Among Men and a Maestro Among Monsters
Will Ronda Rousey regret putting her hands on Stephanie McMahon?
When will “The Ultimate Deletion” take place?

Raw continues to be a mostly intriguing looking show. The build so far has been the best in years, hopefully it continues.

They should re-do that one week of the Bryan build to WM30 where they got him in handcuffs and HHH beat the crap out of him. Easy way to have Steph get a ton of damage on Ronda and not make her look bad.

It's so sad that the high merchandise seller won't be at Wrestlemania.

Okay a better angle would be Cena can't get tickets to Wrestlemania cause it's "sold out".

An ego maniac called out an ego manic. Also, I can't believe he mentioned that Taker is married.

If the women are truly "celebrating Moolah's legacy," I'm assuming that means the winner will be shopped around to be sexually assaulted to the highest bidder and physically assaulted if they attempt to speak up, and then have 80% of their WM purse stolen from them?

Yeah I mentioned that when Cena mentioned his name a few weeks ago. He really shouldn't be wrestling and the match may not be anything special but people clearly do want to see him.

Still doesn't make up for the shitty unnatural exposition filled conversation between Alexa and Mickie.   That wasn't anywhere CLOSE to how humans speak.    Plus I don't understand how anyone can want to see a match that will end up with Nia as a champion.   She's still a walking disaster in the ring.

So Meltzer on the show last night basically came out and said him being coy about what The Bar are doing at WM was because he knew that it was going to be Braun vs. The Bar but they were holding it off to see if Roman?Brock would be able to go. Apparently they're now confident that match will happen so they pulled the trigger on the other. He said he has no idea if it'll be Braun alone or if he'll get a partner.

I had a thought that seems up WWE's alley. Instead of having Braun team with someone like Joe or Elias and form some kind of super team (more unbeatable than Kane/Big Show!) why not have him insist he's going solo and then Kurt tell him he absolutely has to have a partner.

Then at WM he can show up dragging James Ellsworth to the ring and he can just make Ellsworth stand in the corner the entire match.

Of the 9 (soon to be 10) people currently in the Celebrity Wing, I feel they are about batting .500 for who should really be there (Uecker, Perry, Tyson, Mr T, Pete Rose) for being either in-ring at a big event or at least being memorable for something on WWE programming. I mean, even Trump is a little debatable as a decent pick because his arena hosted two Manias and he was involved in two different running storylines from the past fifteen years or so.

Trump made so much money at WM23, the idea that his merit to be in this HOF can be considered debatable is absurd when you made The Fridge a no brainer.

I bought Harper and Rowan as more of a threat when they were part of the Wyatt Family and I just can't seem to care at all now, no matter what they do. Even if they won the titles I just wouldn't care or see them as important and definitely would not see them as worthy. I would have seen them as worthy a few years ago though when they were just crazy backwoods mofos. But this stuff is just stupid.

Like I said, at least Fridge got in the ring and wasn't played as a joke. I'd say the same thing of Lawrence Taylor. The problem isn't so much those six as much as it is how completely unnecessary the other four are when there are plenty of other celebs that did way more for them.

It's really weird to see BikerTaker and realize that it's been over 14 years since he did that, and then remember that he's actually been the Deadman longer since stopping being the biker than he was before he became the biker.

"You're Gonna Pay" is second only to the pre-Ministry Attitude era UT theme for me.

I'll agree that it's better than MOST ECW shows, but Heat Wave 1998, Hardcore Heaven 2000, and November to Remember 1999 blow it out of the water.

I had a friend in high school who thought that theme sounded like Metallica's "Devil's Dance". They sound nothing alike but whenever I hear that theme, I think of his dumb anecdote.

Makes a ton of sense if you consider that he might want to dip his hand into a lucrative run doing signings, appearances, etc. that he stayed away from during his run as The Deadman.  Perfect transition for the stuff outside of wrestling.  I  don't know if its Vince, Calloway or both that are so hell bent on him being kept out of the public eye to protect that gimmick.

He started Dominic domestically with Jay and the kid is like working bussing tables while training with Jay.  Then he is going to send him to work with Lance Storm in Canada, work with someone in Japan.  Think he mentioned someone in the UK.  He is going to have him go learn the craft worldwide like the old studs and when he is done with all that, Rey is going to work with him personally in Mexico because his plan is to give Dominic the Rey Mysterio moniker like he got from his uncle.  All sounds really cool and hope it works for all parties.

Brock Lesnar (c) w/ Paul Heyman v Roman Reigns for the Universal Title
John Cena v The Undertaker
Kurt Angle and Ronda Rousey v Stephanie McMahon and HHH
AJ Styles (c) v Shinsuke Nakamura for the WWE Title
Something involving Kevin Owens, Shane McMahon and Sami Zayn
The Bar (c) v Braun Strowman for the Raw Tag Team Titles
The Miz (c) v Seth Rollins v Finn Balor for the Intercontinental Title
The Usos (c) v The New Day v The Bludgeon Brothers for the Smackdown Tag Team Titles
Charlotte (c) v Asuka for the Smackdown Women's Title
Alexa Bliss (c) v Nia Jax for the Raw Women's Title
Randy Orton (c) v Bobby Roode v Jinder Mahal for the United States Title
Cedric Alexander v Mustafa Ali for the Cruiserweight Title

After all of the talk about how the Usos have never made the main show at WrestleMania, it'd be a bummer if they were on the pre-show again.


So knowing WWE, I'm p. sure that is exactly what will happen.

The SD Tag Title Match is in a tricky spot.

The Cruiserweight Title Match and likely the ATGMBR are pretty safe for going on the pre-show. If Orton wasn't involved I'd say the same for the US Title match as well, but I can't see them sticking Randy anywhere except the main card.

I wouldn't think the Women's Battle Royal would be off the main show given the focus and given its the first appearance but after the name change from Moolah, who knows.

They've got a LOT of talent that deserves to be on the card.  If they still did a whole bunch of meaningless 6 or 8-man tags like they used to people would complain about that too.  I'm interested in over half those matches (honestly only the Universal and US title matches are the only ones that don't do anything at all for me) and there's even a couple matches/superstars (Sasha vs. Bayley, guys like Elias) that probably deserve to have a match but will be relegated to the battle royals.

I actually like this card in part because of some of the things they've done to build it up.

Kurt Angle and Ronda Rousey v Stephanie McMahon and HHH
AJ Styles (c) v Shinsuke Nakamura for the WWE Title
Something involving Kevin Owens, Shane McMahon and Sami Zayn
The Bar (c) v Braun Strowman for the Raw Tag Team Titles
The Miz (c) v Seth Rollins v Finn Balor for the Intercontinental Title
The Usos (c) v The New Day v The Bludgeon Brothers for the Smackdown Tag Team Titles
Charlotte (c) v Asuka for the Smackdown Women's Title
Alexa Bliss (c) v Nia Jax for the Raw Women's Title
Cedric Alexander v Mustafa Ali for the Cruiserweight Title
Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal
Wrestlemania Womens Battle Royal

I'm okay with all of these. You guys can figure out which ones I dropped. The Smackdown tag isn't the best thing they could have done, but if you look at the history of WWE, they never do their biggest tag team match at WrestleMania. There are a few exceptions to this, but only a few.

If they drop three, and really I don't know exactly how they decide they want to structure their show from year to year, but I would probably put these three on the pre-show:

CW Title Match Final
Andre Battle Royal
Alexa Bliss v. Nia Jax

I thought Ambrose-Corbin had a good enough story line to be on the main card last year, but was on the pre-show. I think Bliss deserves to be on there, but if they want to put the womens battle royal on the main show I think it has to get squeezed, especially if they do a gimmick match for the SD! Tag titles.

I still think the CW final is the perfect main card opener for this show, but they could probably do the SD tag title match too.  They've already established the Usos anger at never being on the main card and there's no way New Day gets relegated to the pre-show.

Agreed on Bliss/Jax being on the pre-show.  It should really be Jax just obliterating her.

Seth's not a heel. He wouldn't need J&J.

Besides they've kind of been selling that he's friends with Balor. So I'm sure the match will be them taking Miz to town before one of them innocently bumps the other and then they come to blows.

The idea TSM is a hivemind is pretty strange to me TBH.

And then the chat doesn't agree amongst themselves just as the board doesn't.

AJ might have been injured during their show at MSG tonight. He was in a tag match with Nakamura and had to be helped to the back after only a few minutes. He was limping pretty badly after the ref threw up the X.

that logo looks like mania will be in a sunny, cheerful locale so good thing they picked Jersey.

It does look like a sun, yes, but it's supposed to be the points on the Statue Of Liberty's crown.

I hope it rains the entire time. It would be a cool visual if nothing else.

Some dude said he came back and attacked Sami

He did, but he was still limping heavily. Hopefully it's just a work, though, but to bait and switch from a tag match like that to just Naka vs KO would be dumb. And if I paid to be there, I'd be pissed if is was a work.

I'm sure it's just a work, but yeah. They're starting to get in the habit of constant bait and switches.

I think we should mark out for bait and switches anyway.

I was at the MSG show and I’m pretty sure it was a work. AJ was suppose to be in a tag match with Nakamura vs Sami and Owens, but the heels sneak attacked them and they pillmanized AJ - but he came back after Nakamura beat Owens one-on-one and made the save with a chair and did a stare down with Shinsuke.

This is interesting, but not in a "get your hopes up" way because I'm guessing Vince is the final word in this and he's obviously so willing to change his mind on stuff like this.

But if this happens they might as well just have Brock/Roman open the show to get it over with.

I still think he should be allowed back on the HBK schedule as when he first returned. One match a month and see how it goes.

Someone got hold of the official Wrestlemania program/magazine thing and looks like there is one more inductee to be announced.  Won't bother tagging because it will get announced by some media source tomorrow before the show airs if true:

Mark Henry

Henry gonna attack Cena at the HOF show and say he ain't done yet and then he replaces Taker for the TRUE WRESTLEMANIA MAIN EVENT we've been waiting our lives for.

If Bryan does indeed come back for Wrestlemania, it's definately best that they put him in some multi-man tag where he desn't have to take any bumps. Just give him a hot tag, have him YES! kick people, then grab a submission victory with the Yes Lock. Everybody wins.
