-We start with Vampiro. He apparently has been in a mental hospital for the last few months. The doctor agrees to let him out, despite still having violent thoughts and not telling the doctor, as long as he doesn’t go back to the place that causes these thoughts. Matt Striker picks him up in the desert. He tells Vampiro the Temple is now a darker place.

10 Thoughts: WWE RAW 1.25.16 (Triple H, AJ Styles, Roman Reigns, The Rock)

10 Thoughts - RAW Logo

 

  1. Decent promo out of Triple H to open the show. Listen, I’m just as annoyed that Triple H is the WWE Champion in 2016 just as much as the next guy. But his title win did make STORYLINE sense. No I don’t think Roman Reigns versus Triple H needs the title to headline WrestleMania but that’s the hand we’ve been dealt. The good thing about WrestleMania is that there’s usually at least ONE other match to get excited about if it’s not the main event.
  2. Continue reading

Nikki Bella To Undergo Neck Surgery This Week

As first reported by E! Online, Nikki Bella is set to undergo neck surgery this week. We have rarely seen Nikki on TV in recent weeks. We saw her at the Slammy Awards accepting the Diva of the Year Award. But Nikki has not wrestled on TV since late October. In an interview with WWE.com, Nikki opened up about her injury.

JC’s Top Rope Report: WWE Royal Rumble 2016 Thoughts

The Royal Rumble has come and gone again. Despite the flaws it had the last couple years, it continues to be one of my favorite events of the year. The Rumble match itself is always a fun time. This year, I thought the WWE did a much better job booking the show as a whole despite a few of the outcomes.

JC’s Top Rope Report: 5 Thoughts On WWE Smackdown 1.21.16

1. I don’t care who wins the Tag Titles on Sunday; I DON’T want to see New Day and The Usos wrestle each other again for at least another 9 months. It’s not that their matches are bad. But they could basically do every move they are doing to each other in their sleep at this point. There’s just no fun to any of their matches anymore. But with the state of the tag team division in the WWE, I could see these two teams wrestling all the way to Wrestlemania.

10 Thoughts: WWE RAW 1.18.16 (Roman Reigns, Brock Lesnar, Chris Jericho, Bray Wyatt)

1. I know I cannot be the only person holding their breath for Chris Jericho to do something big. Sure it’s ‘Mania time and he could be back just for the paycheck but that’s never really been the case before so why should it be now? At first I thought we might be seeing a heel Jericho to feud with guys like Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns but after his interaction with Stephanie tonight, I’m not so sure. I guess I’ll just have to keep hoping to see if Reigns eats a Codebreaker to end the show tonight.

JC’s Top Rope Report: 5 Bold Predictions For 2016

JC Top Rope Logo 2

At the start of every year, I like to make some predictions and see where they end up at the end of the year. Lets take a look at my predictions from 2015:

  1. By the end of 2015, Sami Zayn will be on the cusp of the main event scene.
  2. Damien Sandow will have a huge 2015.
  3. Rusev will become a dominant main event heel.

Well, you can’t accuse me of not trying. Sandow was hot as Mizdow at the start of 2015 and the WWE just gave up on him. As for Rusev, he never recovered from the feud with John Cena, and then he had the behind the scenes issues with Lana. And we don’t really know what would have happened with Sami Zayn if he did not get injured. I believe he would be on the main roster by this point.
