WWE is lying about Roman Reigns having leukemia… I’m not gonna believe that he has cancer unless they can prove it, otherwise…

Back in Oct. of 2018, Roman Reigns went on Monday Night RAW to make a shocking announcement. Roman Reigns the professional wrestler has been fighting leukemia cancer for 11 years but he’s been in “remission” and claims it was back. Back in Oct., Reigns relinquished his Universal Title after he announced the cancer has returned and he was going to take a long hiatus from WWE to fight it. Well Roman came back to WWE last Monday night to give a health status on his cancer and now claims he’s in “remission” again. Now that he’s in “remission” again, he is now back in the WWE full time again.

Before Roman’s cancer announcement, wrestling fans used to hate the man and now they love him all of a sudden. Even though Roman Reigns the wrestling character was meant to be a babyface/hero type of wrestler, he still got booed a lot at live WWE shows. The WWE did all they could to get fans to stop hating on Reigns. They did all they could to get him over with the fans.

When Roman announced his cancer back in Oct. on RAW, I did a history research on his life and couldn’t find any evidence at all about his past cancer. So I’m like, “Hmmmm… this is getting kind of fishy already.” There is a back and forth debate about this whole thing. Is Roman’s cancer fake/storyline or is it real? There are those that believe it’s a storyline and there are those that believe it’s real.

I’ve always believed that this whole Roman cancer thing is a storyline/work ever since this thing started. It’s pretty obvious, I think and anybody that think it’s real is dumb. People think it’s real ’cause they truly believe WWE wouldn’t go out of line by making cancer a “storyline”. They believe it’s real ’cause WWE does a lot of work for cancer victims over the years.

I haven’t seen a shred of evidence of Roman’s cancer being real. So far, WWE has never proved it. Roman himself never proved it. No proof from his family and nothing from his doctors. Roman just gives his cancer updates on RAW and no where else.

People think it’s real ’cause the rest of WWE and now media outlets  are going along with it. Then you see the Leukemia Care UK twitter page chiming in on this whole thing trying their best to shoot down speculation of this being a “storyline/work” but I’m still not buying it.

Nobody knows anything about Roman’s leukemia diagnosis. What kind of leukemia does Roman have? Nobody said anything and even Roman himself never said what type of leukemia he has.

Wrestlemania 35 is just around the corner and I believe WWE is faking the Roman has cancer thing just to help build hype for Wrestlemania even more. This could also lead to another possible Shield reunion.

WWE is trying all they can to make Roman the next big hero in WWE kind of like Hulk Hogan, The Rock and Stone Cold, ya know? That’s what I believe what they’re trying to do.

Some want to believe Roman’s cancer is fake and I can completely understand them. When someone wants to believe this is a “work”, they would get hated on by the crowd who think it’s real. I don’t know why, though. This is WWE! A scripted show and you don’t know what’s real and what’s fake anymore so you can’t really trust anything they do.

Some want to believe that Vince McMahon wouldn’t stoop this low by making cancer a storyline but yes, Vince McMahon is THAT crazy. He’ll do  anything for ratings even if it’s something like this. This wasn’t the first time Vince has gone way out of line in storylines.

Like the title says, I’m not gonna believe that Roman’s cancer is real unless they can prove it, otherwise. When people become victims of cancer, they usually do a good job of proving it so they can show people that it’s real and they’re telling the truth.

I know cancer is pretty serious and a big deal ’cause I’ve had some pretty important people who died of different kinds of cancer but I don’t believe Roman’s cancer is real. I mean, come on, Roman’s hiatus from WWE was real short… about 4 months. Now he announced his comeback before Wrestlemania. Roman’s probably gonna be in the main event at WM35 and Brock Lesnar vs. Seth Rollins title match could end up being a triple threat, my bets are on it, y’all. Roman’s getting the Universal Title back.

If Roman’s cancer turns out to be real after all then my bad, my heart goes out to him but it’s pretty unlikely that it’s real. I just don’t believe it is. WWE is lying for sure and they’re doing all they can to make it “seem” real. They are WWE now. You can’t believe everything they do especially when they’re a scripted show, ya know?

Another thing, people think I hate Roman Reigns ’cause I think his cancer is a storyline. No. Not at all. As a matter of fact, I’m a huge fan of his. I think the dude is a freakin’ badass. He’s got a great look and I think he’s great in the ring but gotta be realistic, ya know? It’s funny that people would accuse me of hating on Reigns coming from people who once hated the man and now they are all fanboys after his cancer announcement. Fucking please.

Does Roman Reigns really have leukemia or not??? I think not… it might be a work…

On RAW last night, Roman Reigns was the first one to come out in the ring to deliver a promo. During his promo, Roman says he’s been living with leukemia cancer for 11 years and says he has kicked it ass once. Now he says it came back and he’s going to take a hiatus from the company to battle leukemia again. Of course, Roman relinquishes the title as you see in the video above.

There’s a little controversial debate over this, though. There’s a bit of an argument between wrestling fans on whether or not Roman Reigns really has cancer. The question is does Roman Reigns really have leukemia or is it a work (part of a story line).

I look through some wrestling message boards and forums. Most fans are being compassionate for Roman by giving him his well-wishes and all that stuff; however, there are some wrestling fans that will think this is all part of a storyline aka a “work”. Roman having leukemia could possibly be all scripted and it wouldn’t surprise me at all if it turns out to be scripted ’cause why? It’s WWE. You really can’t tell whether or not things are true on WWE TV. You can’t believe everything you see on WWE TV, including this.

When some fans want to believe this is part of a storyline, they’ll get attacked by the other side who believes it’s real. The other side who believes it’s real will make arguments like: “Cancer is no laughing matter”, “WWE will not go this low since they deal with people with cancer” and blah blah blah. Yeah, WWE deals with bringing awareness to cancer a lot like with their “Make a Wish” foundation that they’re known for and their October breast cancer awareness month that they do. They believe Roman’s cancer diagnosis is real ’cause WWE does a lot of stuff for cancer victims. Yeah, it’s true that WWE does a lot of that stuff for cancer victims but that still doesn’t mean Roman’s cancer diagnosis is real.

What’s funny is that wrestling fans don’t believe the WWE will go way out of line with their storylines. Seriously? If they really believed that then they haven’t watched WWE in over a decade or so. This wasn’t the first time WWE went “out of line” with their storylines… check this article out:

https://screenrant.com/wwe-storylines-controversies/?fbclid=IwAR3vLlPy-9gC9Pu7rYef6q-ll2_j6CYoVkXC6ol7yAud2deJdXNDuxAwOSQ

Vince McMahon is one crazy guy and this guy will do anything for “ratings”, trust me.

You see, Roman Reigns has been one of the most hated wrestlers for a while. What gets me the most about this whole thing is how quickly the haters flipped from being a “hater” to a Roman Reigns “fan” after that speech. A lot of wrestling fans hated on Reigns so much through blogs and forums. I’ve seen fans bash the man like crazy over the last few years. I can see that they won’t admit that they hated the man… they keep making lies like, “I hate Roman Reigns the character, not the man himself”. They despised the man and they wanted him gone from the company. Fans hated Reigns ’cause they were tired of the WWE over pushing him so much, they also knocked his wrestling ability and gimmick. So now fans are all loving him now after that speech above? Oh please! The WWE tried all they could to get fans to stop hating on Reigns and now it looks like they finally found a way.

For the record, I don’t hate Reigns. Never did. I’ve always been a Roman Reigns fan and always found him a talented guy. He always put on exciting as hell matches. I just don’t believe his cancer diagnosis is real. If it turns out to be real then my bad, my heart goes out to him. I just believe it’s a work ’cause it’s leading up to something with the Shield, the wrestling faction with Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins. Dean Ambrose turned heel last night at the show and a few between him and Seth Rollins started. Now Ambrose and Rollins will feud while Reigns will be off of WWE TV for a long while. Then I predict about a year later, Reigns will make his big return.

I know my opinion on this might offend some but I don’t care. We should have a right to believe whether or not this is a storyline and I’m pretty sure it is. Just wait. I just think WWE is up to something. I think they want Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins to feud on TV for a long while without Roman Reigns getting in the way, I think that’s what the goal is? They need to explain a way for Reigns to take time off of TV and him having leukemia was the best they could come up with. There’s no doubt in my mind that this a work, a storyline and I’m sticking with it.

This is WWE. A mostly scripted show… you can’t believe everything they do.

Wrestlemania 34 review… some of it was good but most of it sucked…

Well, Wrestlemania 34 happened last night and I watched it on my computer on the WWE Network. I watch the WWE ppvs on the computer instead of on my PS4 ’cause the streaming works better on my computer. The streaming of live ppvs on the PS4 sucks so I watch it on the computer instead which is better.

Anyway, on with my thoughts about last night’s ppv… like the title of this topic says, “some of it was good but most of it sucked” which was so true. The best matches of the night that I thought were the IC Title Triple Threat match (Seth Rollins won it), Asuka vs. Charlotte for SD Women’s Champ, AJ Styles vs. Shinsuke Nakumura, Cena vs. Taker and the Ronda Rousey/Kurt Angle vs. Triple H/Stephanie was surprisingly really good. They were the best matches of the night, but Charlotte vs. Asuka was my favorite of them all, though. Charlotte vs. Asuka was amazing… even though my Asuka lost the match and lost her undefeated streak to Charlotte, the match was phenomenal. Both women did a good job.

The reason most of the ppv sucked ’cause most of it was too predictable for the most part. I got most of my predictions right and only got like 3 or 4 wrong. That’s how predictable it was. Another reason the ppv sucked ’cause most of the matches were boring. Most of the matches were pretty quick and the wrestling in the matches wasn’t that good either.

If you want to talk about bad wrestling, look at the awful main event which was the Universal Championship with Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns. That was the most boring as hell main event I’ve seen in my life that I almost fell asleep at the end of WM-34. Everybody thought Roman Reigns was going to win since there is a lot of talk that Lesnar is leaving WWE soon but Lesnar ends up winning and retaining. Ya know, of course Lesnar won. Vince McMahon has such a big hardon for Brock and there’s no way Brock would want to lose his championship on Wrestlemania night. Brock is too valuable to WWE. Look, I do like both Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns… I think both men are badass but that match last night was terrible. The only positive that I can give that match was that Lesnar retaining was shocking and nobody saw it coming.

We haven’t had a good Wrestlemania main event in a long time, honestly. That’s because they are always too quick and boring. When will we get a good main event again for Wrestlemania? It’s getting old and tiresome of Vince having the big men main event Wrestlemania. For Wrestlemania main events, you’ll always see either Cena, Reigns, Lesnar and Triple H main eventing. How about a little change for once, Vince?

As far as Asuka vs. Charlotte goes, that would have to be the best match on the card, I would say. Both women did a phenomenal job. That’s a history making match right there. Even though it’s upsetting that Asuka lost her undefeated streak, it was still an amazing match.

Even though the Undertaker vs. Cena happened last night, it was a quick match but still very entertaining. It made sense to make that one a quick one since Cena has been calling out the Undertaker and ‘Taker wanted to show that he was upset and he did. Undertaker won, of course. The Undertaker is my favorite.

As far as Ronda Rousey goes, I thought she did a really good job on her WM debut. Ronda is gonna be a big star in WWE and I can see a huge future ahead of her. Now that the Ronda vs. Triple H/Steph feud maybe over, Ronda will probably move on to feud with other women in WWE. Who would Ronda feud with next? I would say Ronda should go after Nia Jax for the RAW women’s title since Nia won it at WM last night. I’ve been a huge Ronda fan for a long time. Watched her a lot in UFC and still a fan of her now.

There weren’t major superstar returns last night. I was expecting to see a few but didn’t. They focused on the matches which was good.

I’m planning to watch RAW tonight after ‘Mania to see what happens. Maybe we’ll get some surprises tonight?

This year’s Wrestlemania was an okay show. Wasn’t the greatest so if you didn’t watch it and wanted to, you didn’t miss much.

My Wrestlemania-34 predictions…

My Wrestlemania winner predictions for tonight:

WWE Universal Championship: Brock Lesnar (c) vs. Roman Reigns
WINNER: Roman Reigns (since Brock will be leaving WWE after)

WWE Championship: Aj Styles (c) vs. Shinsuke Nakumura
WINNER: Nakumura will probably get this one. Should be a great match, though.

Mixed Tag Match: Ronda Rousey/Kurt Angle vs. Triple H/Steph
WINNER: Ronda Rousey/Kurt Angle. No way they’ll make Ronda lose on her debut match. This match will probably end with Ronda giving Steph the arm bar and she taps out.

Daniel Bryan/Shane McMahon vs. Kevin Owens/Sami Zayn
WINNER: I’m going to go with Owens/Zayn on this one. They’ll figure out a way to cheat again.

WWE Intercontinental Champ Triple Threat match: The Miz (c) vs. Finn Balor vs. Seth Rollins
WINNER: Gonna go with Seth Rollins on this one. Time for Seth to get a huge push that he deserves.

WWE RAW Tag Team Championship: The Bar (c) vs. Braun Strowman and mystery partner
WINNER: I think the Bar will retain.

WWE Smackdown Tag Team Championship: The Usos (c) vs. The New Day vs. The Bludgeon Brothers
WINNER: I predict the Bludgeon Brothers are gonna get this one. Should be a real good match, though.

WWE RAW Women’s Championship: Alexa Bliss (c) vs. Nia Jax
WINNER: I predict Nia is gonna get this one. People will think Alexa will retain but it’s looking like Nia will get a huge push.

WWE Smackdown Women’s Championship: Charlotte (c) vs. Asuka
WINNER: I think Asuka will become the new SD Champ ’cause no way WWE will make her lose her undefeated streak on her WM debut.

WWE US Championship Fatal 4 Way: Randy Orton (c) vs. Bobby Roode vs. Jinder Mahal vs. Rusev
WINNER: I’m thinking Rusev is gonna get this one but Jinder Mahal could end up winning too. I guess it’s a tie between Mahal and Rusev.

Undertaker vs. John Cena (if it ends up happening tonight and probably will):
WINNER: Undertaker will get the win definitely.

Enjoy! Lets see how many I got right and how many I got wrong!

Will we see any surprise returns at WM-34 tonight? Yeah, I think we’re definitely gonna see a few… lets see…

Hulk Hogan? Maybe. Jeff Hardy? Definitely. Rey Mysterio? Definitely. Chris Jericho? Maybe. Samoa Joe? Definitely. Big Cass? Definitely.

I’m sure we’ll get a few shockers tonight. We’ll have to wait and see.

Hope it’s a good show.

Headlining main event for WM-34 this year: Braun Strowman vs. Roman Reigns for Universal Championship???

Tomorrow night is the big Royal Rumble ppv and yes, of course I’ll be watching it on the WWE Network tomorrow night. Looking forward to it. WWE just announced that Roman Reigns will be an entrant in the Rumble tomorrow which is no surprise really. I don’t know why so many wrestling fans hate Roman Reigns ’cause he’s my favorite right now. Reigns is a good wrestler and puts on exciting as hell matches, so I don’t understand the hate? Oh well. Haters are gonna hate, huh?

The Road to WrestleMania always begins on the Royal Rumble ppv every year. That’s when the WWE will start putting together the card for WM-34 later this year. On the WWE Network, I have watched every WrestleMania and Royal Rumble ppv on it. What will the card for this year’s WrestleMania be like? I’m not sure yet but I am predicting that the headlining main event for this year’s ‘mania will probably be Braun Strowman vs. Roman Reigns for the Universal title.

I predict Brock Lesnar will lose the Universal Champ to Braun Strowman tomorrow night for that Triple Threat match they have with Kane. There’s a lot of talk that Lesnar is leaving the WWE again ’cause it looks like he’s making another come back to UFC so Lesnar to lose Universal Title tomorrow? I think Strowman is gonna win that match and get the Universal title finally.

Roman Reigns just lost the USA Title not too long ago and now it’s official that he’s in the Rumble, it got me thinking that Reigns is probably gonna win the 30 man rumble match, so he can go on to headline WrestleMania. Reigns headlined the past 3 Wrestlemanias in a row and he’ll probably headline WrestleMania again this year. Strowman will win title tomorrow and will keep it ’til WM-34 ’cause Reigns will take it from him. That’s what I think the main event for this year’s WrestleMania will be.

I could be wrong on this prediction, though. I wouldn’t be surprised the WM-34 main event will end up being Lesnar vs. Reigns, but we’ll see how it goes.

What will the other matches on the ‘mania card look like? Well Triple H vs. Kurt Angle is pretty likely. Chris Jericho vs. Elias might look like will happen. AJ Styles vs. Shinsuke Nakamura. Matt Hardy vs. Bray Wyatt for sure. Asuka vs. Alexa Bliss (w/Ronda Rousey being involved somehow). John Cena vs. Samoa Joe.

Shane McMahon will probably be in a match this year again but who knows who.

Anyway, I’m looking forward to the Rumble tomorrow night. Hopefully, the WWE will give us a few surprise return entrants this time ’cause they gave us nothing last year. Maybe Hulk Hogan will make a surprise entrant at the Rumble, who knows? Maybe the Rock will be a surprise entrant. I doubt it but ya never know. It’s WWE. They’re always in for surprises.

As far the first Women’s Rumble match goes, I predict Asuka will probably win that one. It’s probably gonna end up happening.

Wrestling fans may despise Roman Reigns now but give it time, he’ll become a fan favorite in the future!

Like the title of this topic says, wrestling fans may despise Roman Reigns right now but a few years from now, I think Reigns will soon become a fan favorite. Why do people hate Reigns so much? Is it because he beats fan favorites? Is it because of his wrestling skills? Is it because of his mic work? I think it’s a combination of all three.

The main reason people despise the guy so much is that he was handpicked by Vince McMahon to be the top guy in WWE when fans thinks others deserve it more. Vince has been so high on Roman Reigns, Vince wants Reigns to be the face of the company. John Cena used to be the top guy in the WWE who everyone hates but since everyone likes Cena now… Vince wants Reigns to be the WWEs’ top guy. Fans don’t like that.

To me, I find no problem with Reigns. I think the dude is a complete badass and I mean that. I think Reigns has got a great look and I honestly think he’s one of the best wrestlers we have right now. Fans just won’t admit that he’s a great wrestler and he is. Reigns is right up there with Chris Benoit, Eddie Guerrero and Owen Hart. I really mean that too.

Like I said, the wrestling community may despise Roman Reigns but give it time… there will be a time when everyone will realize that Reigns is something special and he’ll soon become the top babyface in WWE. Babyface aka a hero and good guy wrestler.

Keep in mind, guys, that when wrestlers like: The Undertaker, Stone Cold, The Rock and Triple H they all started off as heels for a long while. People hated all those guys when they first came to WWF/WWE. It took wrestling fans a long while to realize that those guys I mentioned were something special and now those guys are top babyfaces in the company. The same happened with Randy Orton, he too started off as a heel but everyone loved him later.

I think the same will happen with Roman Reigns. The WWE are gonna try to figure out a way to get fans to love him sometime down the road, trust me. I think Reigns will become the next Stone Cold and Rock someday in the future. This is how the Undertaker’s retirement will help Reigns.

I know fans are gonna hate on me for liking Roman Reigns but I think the dude is awesome. Great performer and great wrestler. Probably one of the best in the industry right now. Sorry wrestling fans but Reigns is never going away. He’s gonna be in WWE for a pretty long time. Vince knows what he’s doing. He ain’t dumb like you think.

Thoughts on Undertaker retirement and Wrestlemania 33 review…

Wow. What a Wrestlemania. So the Undertaker retires by losing match against Roman Reigns last night? I notice some wrestling fans are disappointed and angry with that but hey, I actually loved that! Undertaker retires in style! It’s just his way of going out with a bang. That’s going out on a positive note. I’m sure the Undertaker himself only chooses of who he loses matches to. It was his decision to lose Wrestlemania streak to Brock Lesnar and now it’s his decision to lose his final match to Roman Reigns. It was a great match, though! Undertaker matches are always thrilling and exciting. Last night, I grew more respect to Roman Reigns even more as he is my favorite wrestler now.

A lot of wrestling fans are going, why does ‘Taker’s final match have to be against someone like Roman Reigns instead of another well known icon like Kane? Ya know, I think it was a smart move that ‘Taker would lose his final match to a new superstar we don’t know much about. ‘Taker just helped Roman Reigns get the opportunity of a lifetime. Give someone else a chance for the spotlight and recognition. I’m tired of all these old stars hogging the spotlight and it’s about giving someone new and young a chance. I’m willing to bet that it was ‘Taker’s decision to lose his final match to Roman Reigns (not Vince McMahon’s decision), that is what he wanted. It’s a smart move to lose your final match. Maybe ‘Taker himself respects the hell out of Roman Reigns and wanted to help him boost his career some?

Anyways, I know a lot of wrestling fans are disappointed and sad that this is Undertaker’s last match but it doesn’t surprise me. An Undertaker retirement was bound to happen anyways. I mean, Mark Calloway is 52 years old and I’m pretty sure his body can’t take it anymore since he is aging. On top of that, Undertaker just had major hip replacement surgery earlier this year and that’s another reason for him calling it quits. His body can’t take it anymore ’cause he had a 26 year career in the business.

Plus, Undertaker is a family man as he is married to Michelle McCool (former WWE Diva) and they have a daughter together. One powerful moment after Undertaker’s match got over with, he took off his wrestling gear and left it in the middle of the ring. After that, he celebrated his retirement and career with his fans then he gave his wife a kiss at ringside. Undertaker went totally out of character after the match which was amazing.

Anyway, on with the rest of Wrestlemania… it was a great show except the only match I didn’t care for at all was Randy Orton vs. Bray Wyatt. That match was pretty boring. It was also strange and very bizarre. I was hoping the match would be a lot better than that but it turned out to be pretty stupid.

I thought the best matches of the night were AJ Styles vs. Shane McMahon, a lot of high flying stuff as you would expect. Very entertaining match. Chris Jericho vs. Kevin Owens was great but I was hoping that Jericho would win and retain but of course, Jericho loses again.

The Fatal 4 Way RAW Women’s championship was awesome and I’m glad Bayley won. I think you’re going to see Bayley as women’s champion for a long while ’cause she’s getting really popular I see. She’s my favorite too.

The Best thing that happened last night at WM was the Hardy Boys coming back. No superstars from the past returned except for the Hardys, Matt and Jeff. The iconic tag team. The most talented high flyers of all time! I love Matt and Jeff. They’re my favorite as well. Looks like the Hardy Boys are back in a full time run now they are tag team champions. Hope the Hardy’s stick around for a long while. Matt and Jeff were looking good last night as they were looking clean and healthy (both had a problem with drugs over the years). That’s probably why they finally returned to WWE ’cause WWE saw they got themselves clean and healthy. In the ring, the Hardy Boys still got it after all these years, they killed that match. It was amazing. One of the best ladder matches I’ve seen in a long time!

As far as the John Cena and Nikki in-ring proposal goes, that was pretty cool as it does bring back memories of the Macho Man and Miss Elizabeth love story.

Triple H vs. Seth Rollins was good and I’m glad Seth won.

Lesnar vs. Goldberg was okay but predictably another short match. Goldberg matches always seem to be a short match, not sure why. Maybe it’s his age maybe?

One thing I find strange about last night’s show, was that they didn’t do any entertaining backstage segments at all. They usually do that every year too but they didn’t this year. Each year at WM they usually have a bunch of wrestling legends doing silly things and then Ron Simmons comes up and does his usual, “Damn” catchphrase but they didn’t do that this year. Like they didn’t have time for that this year.

It was a really good Wrestlemania. Other than the Hardy Boys returning, no other superstars from the past returned. No Hogan. No Sting. I’m sure those two guys will return soon, though. Not the best Wrestlemania but I’ve seen better.
