Because having Heyman be a manager has worked so well for anyone not named Lesnar or Punk?

And Rousey is going to be green as grass in the ring. The one advantage she has on these women is her natural ability to sell a fight. It's beyond stupid not to use the thing that has made her the BIGGEST SELLING FEMALE PPV ATTRACTION EVER.

Having a man speak for a woman may give a few the wrong idea, too.

While I do agree with you, a part of me does think Heyman could work because he works best when his clients have a mystique about them. Brock is Brock, a human tank and Punk was in the midst of a historic title reign when they hooked up. His run with Punk wasn't as effective, but Punk had an aura about him. Rousey has that mystique that Heyman is really good at accentuating.

She isn't a random jobber like Curtis Axel, or a lost cause like Ryback. She won't be treated like a joke like Big Show, and if Lesnar is leaving soon, then she won't get the Cesaro treatment and be overshadowed by another of his clients.

A lot of people just see the MMA connection though and want to throw them together.

Both Rumbles had a Corporate vs Fans feeling at the end. Reigns/Cena vs Balor/Nakamura and Bellas vs Asuka. WWE did some smart booking there by using the heat Reigns/Cena/Bellas generate.

Heyman would work perfectly for someone like Rousey right now as she is breaking in and is green as hell.

It will only add to her allure.

I'm not saying WWE did exactly what I said. Clearly not. If you read the rest of that post you will see that I said a ton of stuff that never came close to happening but the generational stand off did happen. Coincidence? Probably, but I still want my check.

Notes from the show

I'm working on devising a game built around coming up with the most accurate parallels to what Lee's mark-out for the return of The Hurricane looked like

1. Charging onto an old-time battlefield

2. The final stand against an alien race when hopelessly outnumbed

3. Defending the honor of his family against a superior-equipped fighting force in feudal japan



Myself, Sam and J-Glass reacted like teenage girls during a beatles concert when Rey Mysterio came back.

The rumble was fucking tremendous. An exhausting experience of tension and elation. The place was in pure shock that they actually went through with Nak winning, and the way they played the former generations chosen ones vs the new generations fan favorites was sheer fucking brilliance. I cant complain much about anyones use, though Ziggler stealing that 30 spot and then doing nothing of consequence was a bit of a waste.


Let me assure you....no matter how quiet and awkward the RAW tag title match seemed on tv, it was ten times more quiet and awkward in person. It was library quiet in that place. A graveyard would have been a louder, more active venue. I have never seen anything like it.


The womens rumble was a bit of a fucking mess, but was still a fun time. Did we truly need Torrie and Kelly Kelly? Did they need to take up two spots that could have been filled by Peyton Royce and Billie Kay?

It feels like they were faced with a tough situation and took the easy way out with Rousey and Asuka. Have it be clear that Bliss's had planned with other heels to eliminate Asuka in a super bullshit way, and give Rhonda the win at 30.

Speaking of which, that number 30 marked a new thing for me...there was literally a pop for the 10 second clock, because everyone just knew it was Rousey.

A pop for the 10 second clock.

A rousing, successful weekend on all counts. Lee and Sam are "top lads" as I heard people called on a gritty british documentary on Netflix.
