  1. I think WWE official’s are gonna be a bunch of jackasses if they don’t let Finn Balor win. They have an opportunity to make fans love wrestling again. So here’s my whole spew have Finn win the title and go to WrestleMania with it. Have Drew win the Royal rumble and them two faceoff at WrestleMania. Drew wins the title and face Balor one more time down the road. Then if Vince wants his dream boy get my dick wet match between Drew and Brock later on then go for it. In the meantime give fans what they want and not what you want Vince.

  2. Brock lesner is paper champ plan and simple he does not job to anyone and shows up when he wats to and hes no champ in my eyes bringing him back was a bad idea finn should have been champ or braun not lesner wwe should have made finn tje champ since he was never given the chance to be champ
