    Yeah he added nothing. He was just a body that edge could beat on as a proxy to randy. Same effect would have been for edge to just come out to the ring unprovoked l, call out randy, and then beat on a nameless “security guard” trying to restore order

    thats always the problem, there is no heel in the booth. They don’t have roles anymore, or if they do Vince makes them break character so often to fanboy over the big dog or Cena or something and it just confuses the issue further

    WWE will never be beaten in the promo video game. They could put something together about my dentist cleaning and it would still probably get me psyched for it

    it was very smart to put Ripley in a video promo vs in ring because she’s not great on the mic.

    And yes the promo packages have always been amazing from WWE

    I’m one of the few people still watching Smackdown and I have no clue she was involved or this was happening till that promo.

    I can’t imagine she got medically cleared. Maybe this is setting up another legend returning. Idk.

    nope, they still haven’t named the group, got ring music or anything. On top of that this type of gimmick needs you to buy all the way in. We’re talking Straight Edge Society meets The Ministry of Darkness. Not this lame half ass junk

    I have no idea where this Rollins vs KO thing is headed. Tonight they included Black. For those not keeping track at home we now have had Samoa Joe, Street Profits, War Raiders and KO team together against the Rollins crew.

    Maybe it’s gonna be Rollins vs KO in a lumberjack match with the other 9 guys around the ring.

    so the payoff to that cage Rowan carried around for months was Drew McIntyre smashing it with the steel steps?

    No, they revealed a huge tarantula last week. It wasn’t real it was mechanical because I think they wanted it to come off as big as possible. Problem is it looked fake as can be and the internet shit on it.

    I think Drew “killing” his spider was the write off of a bad execution. I think it could’ve worked had they just used a real one. And probably not had the spider bite Rowan and cause all that blood. But I’m sure Vince called for something larger than life.

    Not going to pretend to be hyped for match. It’s just there at this point. The video was very good. I didn’t think Charlotte was good in ring and the confrontation didn’t do much for me. Need to really understand why Charlotte picked Ripley outside of her being mad at the comparison that Ripley said she went out the way to stop happening.

    She picked her to elevate the NXT title and the brand overall. Some people still considered it the developmental brand, so this was WWE's way of boosting it. The problem is that the confrontation between Rhea, Charlotte and Bianca; Bianca came off as a bigger star than either of them.

    Lets be honest, Charlotte won the RR and challenged for the NXT title to try and boost NXT ratings over AEW.

    Not only did it not boost NXT ratings significantly, it basically had no effect on them from what I've seen. It goes back to WWE problem of over hyping the same people over and over instead of giving an opportunity to a newer potential star. I dont know about you, but Charlotte going to challenge in NXT has had opposite the intended effect. Instead of making NXT must see, it's made me less likely to watch it because I'm tuning in to see over pushed Charlotte who I'm sick of seeing non stop instead of tuning in and seeing an alternative to WWE main roster.

    Vince has to be literally the LAST "commissioner" of a "sporting event" to cancel the event or the fans even if they needed to use the stadium for medical purposes.

    Separating the brackets by genre was dumb. And just some terrible entries when there are some good shows left out.

    Correct, Vince would never cancel, but it will not be his decision ultimately.

    Because it's such an internationally attended event, it definitely increases the risk. But this would suck for Tampa (and me personally because I've got great seats).

    He could chop up Mania and present it over the course of a month's worth of Raws. 12 hours should be enough time, if they cut the women's tag match.

    At this point you got to think RAW, Smackdown, Dynamite all are in the same boat of being shows put on without crowds.

    I don’t think anyone is really gonna have a choice. NCAA is going crowd free, NBA and NHL will likely be doing the same in a couple days. MLB will need to make a call soon. I could see AEW making the call before WWE but they all are going crowd free.

    I thought the snowed out RAW was fun and I think for a few weeks both companies can think of a some interesting shows.
