This better not be amazing. I skipped going since wasn't feeling large indoor crowd with two matches being on a screen since they are in Miami (and wanted to see Olympics).

In other Cleveland News they renamed (long overdue)  the Indians to the Guardians?!?  Seems so Generic

The Cleveland Rocks or Cleveland WildThings would have been a much better choice.

Im just hoping the music festival crowd doesn't take a Cleveland Steamer on the matches in Miami

so.. I'm hearing rumblings that DBD and CM Punk are All Elite?

WWE is apparently planning on doing a female version of the King of the Ring in the near future... makes a lot of sense, I just hope they avoid doing the obvious (booking Charlotte to win).

Would be a great way to give Becky something to do right after her return (especially if she was just like "I don't care about a stupid crown, I just wanted to whip some ass" afterwards) or to elevate someone from NXT.

Sounds like Bryan is close to a sure thing while CM Punk is more in the negotiating phase at this point. I may be slightly behind in the news, though.

You know that temptation is there for sure, but at the same time it would pretty much lead to an insta-feud if they gave it to anyone else.

Maybe give it to a certain empress?

The Empress that had her undefeated streak broken by Charlotte at WM, then the next year dropped the Smackdown women's title to Charlotte just so she could be shoehorned into the first female Main Event at Mania?

I have little to no faith in anyone but Charlotte going over in that tournament.

WWE has screwed up the KOR ever since it stopped being a yearly event

I don't think so... I just haven't really been able to get into the product all that much even though there are a ton of guys I like on the roster. Tickets weren't that expensive though so never say never I guess.

I think my sister and her boyfriend are going to go, though.

John Cena should be in Miami. If any place could use a peace maker, it's a rap/hip-hop festival.

The main problem with the King of the Ring is that they feel a need to force whoever wins it to adapt the stupid King gimmick. Bret Hart didn't carry the crown around for a year. Steve Austin didn't carry the crown around for a year. Brock Lesnar didn't carry the crown around for a year. Just let it be an achievement and not a gimmick,

Crowd did not particularly care for the Guardians reference. Guess the name isn't going over well.

was hoping he would at some point.. which means Cena has done more to acknowledge Bray's existence, even without actually saying his name, than WWE has in months

Honestly when I looked at the list of past winners I was surprised at how few of them DIDN'T use the king gimmick. Not sure this one goes on Booker's shoulders, haha.

AEW has a bad habit of signing talent for the debut pop, and not knowing what to do with them after.  Miro is the only exception i can thibk of, hes doing his best work now.  The roster is starting to get kinda bloated and not much room at the top.  DBD can still go, I just hope Tony Kahn has the structure to keep Bryan from killing himself in the ring.

CM Punk has shown himself to be a miserable person, and after he got embarrassed in his UFC experiment I have desire to see him wrestle again.

I think CM Punk is an interesting case... you see a lot of people that say they haven't watched rasslin' since the Summer of Punk, so I could see him getting some people to tune back in. On the other hand he hasn't worked a match in 7 years so who knows what to expect.

Gotta figure neither guy signs without being guaranteed a top spot. Bryan supposedly asked for (and was granted) creative control of his character.
