    So there is a massive snowstorm ongoing in Salt Lake City, and it’s supposed to continue until 4 AM. Raw just so happens to be in Salt Lake City tonight. Definitely something to follow.

    Raw sounds like its an empty arena most night anyways. Darken the lights in the stands and nobody will even notice.

    I like it. It’s a fresh matchup and elevates NXT to the common fan. Just let it happen WWE, don’t get in your own way and fuck it up

    I hope she comes out and runs down NXT, the fans and tells her no and walks out.

    because starting this storyline already has given away the ending to Sunday’s match with Bianca

    I get this but in the end signing new people but until they advance others already signed, who cares? At best they will shine on NXT then get lost in a shuffle of 20 other people who don't get air time.

    Yeah, was thinking that. Should’ve had Bianca show up on Raw too. She comes out first and then Rhea. Keeps up the intrigue of the match at Takeover

    That should be the message tonight on NXT but Bianca should come out and ask Charlotte what makes her think Rhea will be champ by Wrestlemania? At least try and give some intrigue to their match.

    Takeaways:

    Riddle needs to lay off the Bro stuff just a little bit. It's way overdone and he needs to find some shoes.

    That Cody segment was bad to begin with and she never be done again. It was way worse when you have all of his friends come out to give him emotional support. If you are going to do it, give him his 10 lashings and have him pass out from the pain at the end.

    I think it's a stretch to bring race into this. Is it ok to do March - January? Can Seth not do the stomp during February because of American History X? There was no person of color involved, it's an old school wrestling angle designed to get heat. I thought it was a tremendous segment, and really made you buy into this rivalry. Racism never once crossed my mind. I didn't even think "oh, somebody might be offended by this."

    Interesting quotes from Sasha Banks about Mania on Corey Graves podcast

    ”You know WrestleMania is so long. If anything, I would hope that we were on the pre-show just so I can get it done and over with. I’ll probably still be making the same amount of money...That’s what it’s all about. I want to make the most money, I want to be on the pre-show so I can get out of there. It’s a long long day, we’re probably there from 8 AM till 2 AM in the morning. So I just got to go. I got to get my beauty sleep.”

    This is such a bad idea, but what I see happening is WWE offers a new 15$ tier that gives you shit like EVOLVE, B Shows and Takeovers. The 10$ tier gives you just the stuff like Takeovers and B Shows. The big four move to ESPN+ like UFC has been doing.

    This is what it looks like when Vince flails. He's had bad ideas in the past but they were always cushioned by his having the only game in town. They could say "fuck you we got your money" and it was true.

    Now fans are walking away. There's too many streaming services to keep a $10 a month highly specific/niche network, and taking PPVs off them (now that NXT is gone) is basically pulling the plug on the whole thing. What a horrible idea that would be.

    He's got so few short term fixes left in his arsenal. The solution is just to hunker down, tell good stories, create stars, and the tide will come back. It always does. Instead he's doing what he always does; throwing babies out with the bath.

    He hasn't flailed like this since the New Generation years. It's not a good look.

    Vince’s issue is he’s a 70 plus year old man who’s produced tens of thousands of hours of content in his life, while averaging maybe 4 hours of sleep a night during that time. He’s also likely suffered at least some brain trauma, plus the effects of steroids. There is no possible way he has all his mental facilities, but he still knows how to be an alpha. It’s a bad mix.

    Weird tweet since AEW has been about 900k and NXT abotu 750k since January. Nothing new there unless I'm missing something.

    NXT thoughts...
    • How much fish could Bobby Fish Fish if Bobby Fish could Fish Fish
    • I would be pissed if my hair cut got jacked. That’s some legit heel heat
    • Gargano and Balor interview... let’s go!
    • EST just stole the segment, fuck Charlotte
    • Dream! Welcome back. Did he have Strongs wife and kid on his gear?
    Didn’t get a chance to watch AEW yet
