If Bryan doesn't close the show at WM and Cena/Orton/Batista do..the crowd will shit all over it

hell, if Bryan isn't in the main even at WM the crowd will shit all over the main event.

There hasn't been a wrestler this popular with the fans since Austin/Rock, the fans are so desperate to see him as the top guy that they chant his name during other peoples matches, other peoples segments and WWE still refuses to give him his shine

true, i've seen enough of him recently to know he still has it. He's out there calling the match like a boss, Magnus fugged up and it could have easily of looked awful but Sting made up for it.

He's still out there taking bumps, I'd love to see 2 matches against UT, one at Mania which UT wins, then again at Summer Slam to even the score.

As for being out of shape, you can see even with the t-shirt on he doesn't have a gut, hew might not be in blade runners shape, but he's still in excellent condition.

I think he could wrestle another year no problem, if he wanted to he could wrestle another 5.
They've already had people talk about how Taker meticulousy plans and practices his 'Mania match, so if Sting signs they'll go over it again until they're happy with it. They'd said it was part of the reason they were unsure if they could so Brock VS Taker because Brock wouldn't want to spend his time practicing a match.

Anyway, there was a pretty good American Wolves vignette on TNA Impact this week

http://youtu.be/lRAYE8MAJfY

The unknown "investor" to be revealed next week. People think it'll be Jarrett bringing AJ/Wolves with him. Others say Tommy Dreamer. MVP rumoured to have signed and have people seen say that TNA signed 2 other Ring of Honor guys along with Davey and Eddie.

I've read that too, but I sceptical. Wouldn't it be counter-productive for a guy with a beaten down body to be "practicing" a match?

not if it's his calling card and WWE hypes up the streak like it does. taker has more or less been wrestling for WM for a few years now. if he's hurt, he takes time off to heal and show up in time. if he's not hurt, he does a couple angles or squash matches. dude is old but he's been banking on those WM matches. at this point, i think he really does need to retire.

he can't really tightrope the top rope anymore, he doesn't really dive over the top rope without being clipped anymore...i mean, legend obviously, but it's time to hang it up.

as much as his last 3-4 WM matches have been in my top 2 that year, it's starting to really rely on near finishes. near finishes get the crowd into it but at the same time, it also cheapens it. like how many superkicks, pedigrees, tombstones can you go through? when you think about it, it ends up being lame booking with forced suspense.

the storyline and build up has usually been good, although the last HHH one was weak as all fvck.

as far as sting, i got excited a couple years ago when y2j returned and i hoped it was sting in some weird way. i'm kind of over it now. it will be a last hoorah but he's been past his prime for so damn long, it's like the grateful dead taking their final tour.

5 are left to be surprise entrants. Sheamus? Evan Borne? Jericho? Kane? Jake Roberts? Undertaker? Sting? Hogan? Anyone off other matches?

i don't care if Bryan is already in a match he should be in the rumble.

Since Punk is the first entrant I wouldn't be surprised to see the SHIELD as the second third and fourth entrants
