    I really wouldn't wanna be in Joe's shoes when he steps in the ring with Lesnar. Suplex City is not gonna be good to him...

    Shaping up to be a pretty decent card, even though the PPV name is horrific.

    Asking those way more in the know than myself. Joe is getting pretty good push but my guess is that it's to sell this PPV. Is the goal for Brock and Roman to be main event at summer slam or will Seth be involved?
    Also does anyone ever see a Seth and Cesaro feud/match because I'd watch that for 2 hours. What a match that would be.

    I think Vince is slobbering all over himself to do Lesnar vs. Reigns & Cena vs. Reigns.

    Having said that, the Lesnar/Joe feud has had a fantastic build. If the match goes over well, I can see WWE going back to that well again.

    I think they should have given Joe the big win over Lesnar instead of Goldberg. That accomplished nothing long term.

    2nd of 3 Raw Pay-Per-Views since Wrestlemania that Finn Balor is not on the card. He wasn't on Payback & was on Extreme Rules.

    I don't understand that. He is one of the most popular talents on Raw. Maybe the most popular.

    Here and there. I'll probably watch SS, so I'm up on the current feuds.

    Btw, have you seen this? Possibly the greatest heel ever.

    I'm not a "smug liberal elitist" but I love that guy! Hadn't heard of him until just now though.

    And I'm glad you still watch some. Makes me feel good that someone as smart as you watches something as dumb as wrestling. I love it, but I admit it's kind of stupid.

    His finishing move is the "Liberal Agenda." I laughed out loud.

    It's not a lot different than watching an action movie or something, just absurd and funny in its own way. One of my best friends is a wrestling savant and keeps me updated, and I try to catch big shows with him too. Always a good time (until Roman Reigns magically wins against all odds and reason ).

    Normally we agree but not on Joe and Lesnar. It is extremely boring and forced.

    I do agree Goldberg was by far the worst act in WWE since I picked it back up a few years ago.

    Ugh, don't get me started.

    Reigns is fine in the ring, but everything else, including his gear, needs work.

    I really like how they have built Joe in this feud. I can always do without Lesnar, although he sold that choke the other night like a champ.

    Joe is okay, just okay. It looks to me as if his wrestling skills are extremely limited but he did a good job intimidating Paul.

    My point is, the WWE has built this feud through talk and a wrestler putting his hands on a non-wrestler. Weak sauce.
