    I hope all this "Dean is leaving" talk hasn't been a work and really they've just been running a massive guilt trip campaign culminating with this event Sunday because that's funny to me

    I'm holding out hope Dean turns on Roman... They feud on Smackdown for a bit. But this is likely just WWE milking every chance to say goodbye to a top talent.

    I also expect Fin to drop the IC title to some RAW superstar... Since those are the only two matches going to be aired live.

    I don't think the IC is going to Raw, pretty sure Joe will move.

    Smackdown has a significant heel issue if he moves... Especially if Bryan is hurt for a long period of time.

    Maybe KO eventually turns on Kofi

    I wasn't really impressed with the Macho Man EP. I'm not sure what they are trying to do or be... Are they giving you a legit behind the scenes look at the past or are they doing a Bruce Prichard "something to wrestle with" in video form.

    Yes, Shawn was a huge prick then....he also was staying as the #1 guy in the company. If you're leaving, you job. Plain and simple. Should Vince have demanded Bret job instead of planning the screwjob? Yes. But Bret put him in that situation.

    Rumors that DBry's injury could be serious. They haven't said a word about it, hope it's not his neck/head related.

    As for the Lana snapchat, just kinda seems like a hack to me. It's "from camera roll" which means it was a video on a phone that then had to be uploaded to snapchat to post it. Which would be a lot of layers of her actually deciding to post a video of her getting plowed by someone clearly not her husband. Maybe they swing, idk, and she just meant to send it to Rusev.

    RAW also has lost a lot of people who can cut promos. Curious how they fill 3 hours will less talkers

    SD still has a more appealing roster to me, but the addition of Reigns is the biggest negative. The other faces are going to be buried and on a 2 hour show, the focus on Roman is going to cost the rest of the roster more than it did on RAW.

    The thing I look for is will smackdown still feel different. For over a year Smackdown has been NXT lite. Felt less like Vince had his hands on it vs RAW.

    But with the Fox deal coming and Roman on RAW I’m curious if we are just going to get 5 hours of RAW.

    I actually think Roman not needing to be in multiple segments a show and maybe having a run in the upper mid card for some time could help. Let him feud with Vince and Lars for a few months. Don’t throw him with Kofi and beat him because your going to get him shit on once again.

    Looks like Roman has an above average role in the new Hobbs and Shaw movie based on the trailer.

    Like I said earlier, it was a tough situation for all involved. I believe his contract ended that night. I also take Bret at his word that he would have dropped it on RAW or a house show later on. But I also see where Vince had to worry about the guys at WCW. They could have easily on that NITRO advertised the current WWE champion is coming to Nitro and it would have looked bad for Vince. Vince should have taken the title off him earlier to be honest and they wouldn't have ended up in that situation.

    Yeah, and if Vince wanted that, he could have just forced his hand. But he didn't, did he? He went behind his back to do it.

    Maybe it shows a lack of professionalism on behalf of Bret. And if that's true, what the fuck does it say about all of them involved in the screw job?
