    Oops accidentally voted for Jericho.

    You think there's any chance Omega beats Jericho then appears at Royal Rumble?

    Just made it so you can change your vote.

    I don't think so, but that would be awesome.

    I highly doubt the rumble. But if he debuts on the main roster it’ll be at another of their big shows

    Are there any other Americans on this card or is it all slant eye savages?

    Bucks have some really awesome moves, together and alone. They have some fun with the occasional comedic spot, but I think they're great workers and they're doing great from a business perspective. I respect the hell out of Cornette's philosophies on wrestling, but the sport is evolving regardless and the Bucks are one of the better parts about it. It's a shame Jim can't work with this crop of guys because they could all benefit from it.

    Ibushi-Cody is gonna be a damn good match and will be overshadowed by the Main and Co Main event

    I'm bitter that Castle isn't on the card. I'd prefer him vs Ibushi myself.
