Taunting the WWE into leaving the company? Or misdirection and he might actually win?


#3

If I just repeat Okada vs Rusev, maybe it’ll actually happen.

But really it’s because he’s facing Taker in a Casket Match at GRR.


#4

…welcome to the new thread!


#5

#6

#7

#8

its well deserved after she ruined my boo’s streak


#9



Becky Lynch is amazing…low-key shading about doing a dark match.


#10

That shitty company doesn’t deserve you Rusev.


#11

Yet again, Rusev was referring to getting a Casket Match against the Undertaker at GRR.


#12

Didn’t know that the UWW World Cup was over Wrestle Mania weekend as well (4/7 and 4/8):

Americans always beating Japanese wrestlers…


#13

Liv Morgan fucked up. She leaked the script of the latest NXT taping on instagram.

Yooooooooooooo, Shawn Michaels is producing NXT matches!


#14

Yeah, he produced the NXT NA Title Ladder Match at Takeover.


#15

Also we got a problem. Turns out someone that went to the WWE HoF ceremony was hospitalized with Measles a day later.

Posting to subscribe?

Thing is they protected Rusev on that finish.

Really if you want to watch puro go to dailymotion

If you want njpw/wwe/pwg/roh google watchwrestling

That should be in your first post

All these “can you link”

“Got no time to google”

Nah

On daily motion there is a dude subbing ddt, it is great to finally have context to the powerpoint presentations

Also working Undertaker is HUGE.

I just imagine what would happen if he actually beats Undertaker,

Would not surprise me if Rusev got cheered over taker seeing as saudi arabia is more smarky than india

Huh, so it looks like from what he said, Jack Evans essentially left LU because he got into an argument with Ivelisse and accused her of SJWing? Well, okay then.
