Had a unique perspective watching Full Gear

Worked at my drug rehab job and got to watch the whole show with men who hadn’t watched since Hogan, and the Attitude era and here are some notes….

The Jungle Boy match was loved. They loved Jungle Boy and immediately bought into the David and Goliath mood. I thought If Jungle Boy won the casual fans would kinda not like it but it was the opposite. The brutality and overall solid work kept their interest and that 1st match was well received.

They bought the Saraya VS Britt story and liked that match. They were invested in Saraya after commentary explained her story


Long story short they liked every match and like every storyline. The one match they tuned out on was Jades match but they only tuned out because Jade is so hot they couldn’t focus.

They absolutely loved all the tag matches. They loved Kieth Lee leaving Swerve and they loved the Acclaimed and trios match. Most the guys had fallen asleep by the main event but the one guy who stayed up loved the match.

Good background interview on Jade


Really down to earth woman and it’s funny hearing her discuss her character and how her character is basically just her turned up to 100

She's married/partners with former Indians legend Brandon Phillips too.

Unbelievable storytelling in that Men’s War Games. Sami sacrificing KO to finally get the full approval of the Bloodline was brilliant

The pop for Jey embracing Sami shows how much it’s worked.

Yes. It was great. Gonna make the betrayal soooooo much better.
Was never a Sami fan until this whole bloodline thing.

PPV was tremendous.

If I could bet on WWE, Sami Zayn is winning the rumble and the betrayal is happening at WM when he won’t lay down for the Tribal Chief.

Reports came out today that the plan is Roman/KO at the Rumble, Roman/Sami at EC in Canada, and KO/Sami vs the Usos at WM

Sami vs Roman at Mania would be awesome though. What a way that would be for Sami to finally get the world title
Sami holding the company's biggest strap is something though. Who is he compared to as far as history goes? Looks like Eugene, wrestles like?

So i am pretty invested in Rock VS Roman at Mania happening because i simply do not see another route they are going with this.


Now the way the storyline is playing out I’m starting to believe HHH is thinking about Zayn VS Roman.

One match is obviously the big money match you want but Zayn VS Roman would be insane too. The fans would lose their minds if this is how Sami wins his 1st world title in WWE. I only fear that that match and result would be more for the moment and that WWE would have nothing for Sami as champ and they’d immediately pivot to Drew or back to Roman the Raw after Mania.



I honestly have no idea what WWE is thinking. I’m pretty sure they want Cena VS Theory for the US title and I’m pretty sure there are at least talks for Cody to win the rumble but is he the guy you want against Roman? I almost say split the world belts back up before Mania.
