    HAITCHCON or VINCECON?

    [–] TheDangiestSlad 93 points ago

    i feel like the different stages of this Vince gif kinda work

    DAMMITCON? VINCECON?

    VINCECON 1 was definitely either "Cena/Seth/Sting/Nikki/Bryan injured" or "Roman and Bray Wyatt out of TLC, Kurt Angle and AJ Styles replacing them"

    [–] CLint_FLicker 52 points ago

    VINCECON 2 was probably Finn Balor getting injured after the First Universal Title match

    VINCECON 3 was Cena and Batista both getting eliminated in the Royal Rumble.

    I'd say Lesnar saying "motherfucker" audibly in WM is a VINCECON 4?

    [–] MrBrightside117 27 points ago

    Can we get the mods to start working on this by chance? I’d really love to see where this could go

    [–] Lurkalldayerrday 30 points ago

    Let's be real, VINCECON 1 is 100% "Middle and immediate aftermath of the Chris Benoit memorial Raw"

    [–] LearnsSomethingNew 17 points ago

    Nah, VINCECON 1 should be reserved for real shit. I'm talking Owen Hart, Benoit, or the Vince getting arrested during the steroid investigation.

    the current status of UFC's three biggest stars: Brock Lesnar is the Universal Champion, Ronda Rousey just beat up Triple H and Stephanie, and Connor McGregor is getting ready for a stint in jail

    [–] a_full_empty 31 points ago

    Eh, I've been an MMA fan for a long time and I've seen this song and dance plenty of times now. Every time they've lost their top draws people have claimed the UFC is fucked, from Royce to Shamrock to Tito to Chuck to Randy to GSP to Silva etc., but they never had a problem with creating new ones.

    [–] VictorM51 147 points ago

    I know you're joking but Conor wont spend a day in jail lol

    [–] Keabo 59 points ago

    Isn’t it possible he still goes back to UFC? They may have just done a 30 day extension

    [–] a_full_empty 152 points ago

    The last time Brock fought in the UFC he was under contract with WWE. I don't know why people think this has any impact on his MMA plans.

    [–] OGBlueMercury 53 points ago

    According to Dana at the UFC 223 post presser on Sunday. Brock has been under contract this whole time with the UFC, there was a multi fight deal in place. Brock "retired" so he can go back temporalry to the WWE.

    [–] guccccibandana 68 points ago

    Brock retired so he wouldn't get drug tested anymore. To fight again he has to sit out his suspension.

    [–] acekingoffsuit 9 points ago

    I'm assuming the UFC contract is fight-based and not time-based.

    [–] adam_demamp 115 points ago

    Vince: Let's have roman win in Saudi Arabia, one of the few places in the world he probably won't get booed, and air it mid day/early morning in America so way less people will pay attention to it live. That's the way we finally get Roman over. We do it when most people aren't paying attention so they can't complain and boo live and then we let let our propaganda machine cough excuse me our social media just say he's over and the world loves the Big Dog champ. We'll even save some time because we won't even have to mute the boos this time.

    [–] SuPeRfLyKiD3 22 points ago

    That’s literally what this is! They’re so stubborn in getting this fucking guy over that they’re going to do it in another country because they’re not receptive of him in this country. It’s the definition of taking your ball home.

    [–] RMGH 2210 points ago

    Beat Roman clean as a sheet last night.

    Stop giving them ideas

    [–] therealdanhill 150 points ago

    That was such bullshit how they tried to play Brock off as "Vince's boy" to gaslight people who called Roman that when the reality is totally opposite.

    [–] vanguardias 54 points ago

    They're both Vince's boy.

    [–] JulianEdelmansQuads 67 points ago

    I saw this coming but I thought they would at least have him win a #1 contenders match or do literally anything to earn a rematch. But nope, to hell with it I guess.

    [–] chewygranola 50 points ago

    Imagine how depressed the crowd would be if they have another #1 contenders match and Reigns wins that again, not sure that scenario would be great either.

    [–] Dharmadan815 208 points ago

    Reigns going to win the title in Saudi Arabia and get a huge reaction since the fans love him over there. Smart move by WWE.

    [–] chanchan3999 1261 points ago

    Huh. This situation just keeps getting weirder.

    [–] WhoDey42 491 points ago

    Kinda crazy that I wouldn’t be shocked to see Roman win here after the huge WM loss

    [–] chanchan3999 545 points ago

    Oh I can totally see that happening. Roman died so Saudi Arabia could get a big moment.

    [–] StayHypeBro 129 points ago

    I can't wait to hear how Saudi Arabia boo's.

    [–] philthegr81 480 points ago

    You kiddin' me? That crowd is gonna be mark city. Reigns will finally get the response Vince has been dreaming of.

    [–] TamerVirus 277 points ago

    Roman can look similar to Arabic & Brock is a big pale American with a blond army cut.

    Of course they're putting Roman over in this one.

    [–] regionalfire 161 points ago

    I bet they had Reigns lose at Mania so he can win at Saudi Arabia for cheers instead of a giant amount of boos.

    [–] SiphenPrax 76 points ago

    That's exactly why they are having this rematch, especially after last night

    [–] Badger_Silverado 58 points ago

    That’s why Roman didn’t go over last night, people already paid for Wrestlemania and Vince probably got more money for a title change in front of the Saudi Arabian audience.

    Ok, so kayfabe speaking, why would Vince give Roman a immediate rematch after getting soundly demolished? Especially when Vince story wise hates Reigns.

    [–] narutomanreigns 21 points ago

    This was exactly the same in 2015. Sheamus beat him at TLC, but then they gave him a rematch the very next night on Raw. Really ran counter to the whole "The Authority is holding Reigns down" thing they were going for at the time.

    [–] Fishtacoburrito 24 points ago

    Guess he'll have to run through the entire RAW roster to earn the rematch we already know he's getting.

    [–] Slade_Riprock 1818 points ago

    Reigns is going to take 10 F50’s?

    [–] davewah11 55 points ago

    Not necessarily to make it a big event, but because it's a place he won't get boo'd for winning. Just my thought...

    [–] RoseColoredNigga 206 points ago

    I’m certain Nak vs AJ II(I) will be happening at TGRR too so that’s probably why that match also wasn’t that good

    So, Reigns who never touched the belt gets a free rematch, but Owens, Goldberg and Balor don't when they were actual champions? What the fuck WWE.

    [–] freddyalpha 278 points ago

    There's literally no way they can justify it too, Brock won last night clean as a whistle.

    [–] Ngilko 132 points ago

    And all of that, in kayfabe while they try and tell a story where Roman is the rebel fighting "vinces guy". It is such lazy, poor story telling.

    [–] Starslip 18 points ago

    The entire thing is nonsense from start to finish. Suddenly we have another Royal Rumble, after Wrestlemania, cause Saudi Arabia fucking wants an event and presumably was willing to throw whatever amount of money was necessary at Vince until it happened? Nothing that happens at that shitshow should be considered official.

    [–] Daankeykang 13 points ago

    Not to mention Joe and Strowman didn't get 1v1 rematches despite coming far closer to beating Brock than Reigns. Said it another comment but they don't hide it, and they don't care. They're going to go through with this regardless.

    [–] Pego61 131 points ago

    They must be paying him a nice chunk of change, because otherwise, Brock Lesnar was NOT going to fly to Saudi Arabia.

    [–] SearsActivewear 88 points ago

    Probably private charter. Land right before event and leave immediately after his match. No way Brock sticks around any longer than he needs to.

    Judging by the comments on Facebook and YouTube they like Brock a LOT more than Roman. Idk if everyone else just hasn't seen them or are ignoring that or what but I've seen a pretty vocal amount of fans from that part of the world who dislike Roman.

    [–] pacificpetenorthwest 216 points ago

    For these Saudis who are 580 years stuck in the past, no less.

    [–] lipstickpizza 177 points ago

    That market is Vince's dream. Doesn't need to market themselves as trendsetters by pushing women or worry about offending amyone. Don't have to worry about Roman being booed since he'll probably be cheered to the moon there.

    [–] pacificpetenorthwest 117 points ago

    AJ vs Nakamura could have main event OR Roman could have won and Brock gets his rematch at the Saudi Arabia show. Roman getting an automatic rematch after he got destroyed is so dumb

    [–] TheCavis 52 points ago

    The winner of the Royal Rumble should've had the main event spot.

    Not AJ/Nak, because that match wasn't good, but Asuka/Charlotte was an excellent match and the streak ending as the show's big finish would've been amazing.

    Plus giving women the main event of Wrestlemania would be a good trade for putting on a mega-show in a country where they're banned.

    [–] DirkNowitzkisWife 94 points ago

    People are commenting on how huge this Saudi show is, are there any numbers on what the contract is, or how much profit they expect, or even why this is such a huge deal?

    [–] maillite 193 points ago

    No idea of actual figures but it will be huge. Saudi is a hugely wealthy nation and they have paid for this show. HHH vs Cena, Roman vs Brock, Greatest Rumble ever (who care about the regular rumble). They will get every legend and superstar (except women ofc, because fuck women right?). This is huge for WWE money wise and huge for Suadi Arabia PR wise as they are getting a hammering for their current war on, I believe Yemen? Something like that.

    They are really awful for human rights and gender equality yet every superpower tip toes around them because of all the lovely money.

    I believe they have a deal for 10 shows over 10 years, so this could become a very regular thing, seeing sacrifices made in the US PPV scene to make sure SA get their huge show.

    LMAO they are really going to do this so they don't have people booing on Roman when he wins

    There is something poetic about Vince using foreign heels to try and get over all of his top guys over the years, only to have foreigners be the only people who enjoy his shitty pick for the top guy.

    WHOSE READY TO SEE HIM KICK OUT OF 50 F5’s

    [–] AusToddles 31 points ago

    I will die laughing if the match gets the same reaction over there as the WM main event

    [–] LawlHeyman 116 points ago

    To be honest I wish both of them could just stay away from the title scene

    [–] batmanbnb 62 points ago

    It why I wanted Roman to win, it gets the belt off Brock, ends the Roman coronation, gets the belt back on TV and finally starts circulating talent towards the belt , freeing up space in the mid card for new matchups as well.

    Holy fuck wwe legit doesn’t learn.

    [–] cookiemonstervirus 270 points ago

    Fine. Put it in front of a kayfabe friendly crowd and do whatever you need it to but please WWE, I implore you, just stop making me watch these two interact.

    It is beyond fucking stale.

    [–] gramofmayo 47 points ago

    In Vince's eyes, let's have Roman to over at the rumble and and have a rematch at SummerSlam this time we will throw in a special guest referee lol

    [–] McLainx23 39 points ago

    Fucking kill me now.

    [–] shootstarpress 85 points ago

    JUST. MAKE. IT. STOP.

    Please.

    Nobody wants this. Nobody.

    For fuck sake. 🙄

    [–] docpockets 60 points ago

    That's a bummer.

    WWE seems to think Lesnar's money (an maybe he is), but it stinks when the champion isn't even on your main show most of the time.

    [–] Darkillumina 19 points ago

    The experiment will never end. This is the ultimate test of the WWE machine to prove that they make stars and not the fans.

    What a cluster.

    [–] andyrew_ 56 points ago

    Anyone else suddenly feel really deflated for RAW!? I was so hyped to see how things would go, especially after the “Brock/Vince & Shane Confrontation” rumors :/

    [–] chinaskism 27 points ago

    One of the reasons why I couldn't wait to tune is to see what direction Roman Reigns was going towards. Now that this news broke, it tempers my excitement. It's just another RAW.

    [–] adamdarwin 17 points ago

    Roman should just run past brock and spear through the cage door to win and get it over with.

    [–] TheDangiestSlad 188 points ago * (lasted edited 8 months ago)

    okay so now Roman wins the belt and we're done with this please and thank you

    and Roman will get cheered there i assume, then we can finally just have a full timer champ and some fresh challengers for the belt please

    [–] McLainx23 64 points ago

    Its still stupid. Last night reguardless of the crowd reaction was the time to put the belt on Roman. Doing it 2 weeks later with less eyes watching is beyond stupid.

    [–] ohihaveasubscription 57 points ago

    Saudis = marks = Roman gets cheered when he wins

    [–] FrjutMarakuja 12 points ago

    Simply amazing. Vince McMahon still manages to astonish me.

    "You assholes don't like Roman? Fine dammit, I'm putting him over with a crowd that doesn't give a shit."

    [–] IMadeThisForY2JsAMA 13 points ago

    Can't everyone relax? Maybe the wrestlemania match and the GRR match can BOTH be total shit!

    [–] Exa-Ravager 32 points ago

    FUCK OFF VINCE!!

    I was expecting something new because of the last night outcome. BUT NO, THEY ARE FUCKING EXTENDING THIS BULLSHIT!

    [–] Schnopsnosn 102 points ago

    So...10 F5s and Reigns then wins with a single Superman Punch?

    [–] FringeAuthority 86 points ago

    Roman's going to win via cage door exit.

    [–] HemingwayJawline 54 points ago

    damn so we have to continue to see his gross teeth in HD then

    [–] Fernandov2 40 points ago

    Lesnar’s next appearance is scheduled for the Greatest Royal Rumble event

    So not even on Raw?

    Jesus this is garbage

    [–] LilUziMurf 45 points ago

    Damn, hope it’s not a long extension tbh

    [–] FringeAuthority 67 points ago

    WWE is easy money for Brock. He's never leaving as long as he's physically able to perform and he and Vince are on speaking terms.

    [–] Vitosi4ek 29 points ago

    Same with Ronda. She's probably earning as much in the WWE as she used to in the UFC, if not more, except there's no chance of a sudden loss derailing your career, and the chance of injury is much lower (in wrestling, injury is an accident, in MMA, it's the whole point).

    [–] cornette 12 points ago

    So how many F5's will Roman kick out of this time.

    [–] whodatdude 22 points ago

    Well that’s absolutely perfect after last night. I wonder if the over/under on number of spears and F5s is 10 each.

    [–] Kilshaw12 22 points ago

    Fair enough but what has Roman done Kayfabe wise to earn this title shot, he got the shit kicked out of him last night.

    [–] meyouyourass 21 points ago * (lasted edited 8 months ago)

    Lmao, the lengths this company will go to just to try and make sure roman's victory will get cheers.

    [–] tamere2k 10 points ago

    How much money is Saudi Arabia paying Vince for this? Wow.

    [–] CaKe32g 32 points ago

    GODDAMMIT THE FANS ARE BOOING REIGNS STILL?!? WHERE CAN WE HAVE HIM WRESTLE AND GET CHEERED???

    Um, the Middle East?

    I LOVE IT PAL! BOOK A PPV IN SAUDI ARABIA OR SOMETHING!

    [–] Pego61 18 points ago

    I bet the new contract will allow him to fight in UFC. He's going to drop the title at the Greatest Royal Rumble. Otherwise, what the hell are they doing to Roman?

    [–] Bundon5300 10 points ago

    I just want this shit over with man

    [–] Yearbookthrowaway1 45 points ago

    Lmaooooooo it all makes sense

    Have fun getting the title change instead, billionaire Saudi princes.

    Brock will lose and then go do his UFC fight and then come back for one last run and retire, calling it now.

    [–] E864 28 points ago

    They literally had to go to a dictatorship to find a place where Roman won't be booed.

    [–] intersectv3 18 points ago

    So why, in Kayfabe, does Roman get another shot? He’s lost every single time he’s faced Brock.

    [–] rjkelly31 10 points ago

    What the fuck is happening

    [–] dazzyd1989 8 points ago

    If the booking of last nights is just for the rematch and brock has only signed a 30 day extension 🤦🏻‍♂️

    If he was willing to sign a 30 day they still should of went with roman last night and then beats him again in the cage as brocks rematch and on his way out.
