    A month from TV and only a month of TV to build towards the PPV. So I kinda get it. We will see.

    Yeah and the PPV is 2 months away... I get what your saying. I just hate it. I tune in the TV to see new shit happen and storyline to develop. When WWE does this garbage as well I dislike it. Especially when at times under Vince you could go 3 weeks with no storyline progression on a single ep of raw

    So hour one of NXT is gong to be on USA and then you have to rush and login to the network to watch the second hour. That is so damn stupid. Worried about losing those subs.

    Wild card rule supposed to go away and another legit draft going to happen in October for a permanent split of the rosters. Meltzer saying Fox wants this draft presented kind of like a sports draft

    The hats. I want to see the hats.

    Also, all the superstars should wear 1994 NBA draft suits.

    Draft is going to happen on the 2nd Fox show. Week 1 on Fox seems like a reunion show with returning stars. Week 2 the draft. Then we move into locked rosters. Curious if NXT will get some selections or anyone scooped up to RAW or Smackdown.

    Seems like they are shuffling up the writers backstage in each team.

    I wonder if there is going to be any potential drama with Fox and USA over who's getting which superstars. WWE has been on USA forever, and now FOX is the huge deal and they're going to want their show to matter.

    I feel like they have to include NXT in the draft. they're bound to draft someone up, drafting a few back, like sanity or EC3 or something would be good. Since their on USA ,maybe even bigger names like Cesaro or Asuka/Kari

    Bischoff and his “SmackDown” creative team have also come under scrutiny for this summer’s Erick Rowan doppelgänger storyline, in which an unknown attacker drop heavy backstage scaffolding on top of Roman Reigns, “injuring” the company’s No. 1 star.

    According to the WWE insider, the storyline was “botched so bad” that “explaining to anyone what it was supposed to be wouldn’t make any sense at all.”

    Bryan Alvarez of F4WOnline.com also commented on the storyline:

    “Vince I guess either came up with the idea of Roman Reigns vs Rowan first, or that’s actually not what they’re going to be doing […] this is absolutely true — nobody on SmackDown has any idea what’s going on. Nobody who is responsible for putting this show together — they have no idea where this is going. They don’t know if it’s going to be Daniel Bryan vs Roman, they don’t know if it’s going to be Rowan vs Roman Reigns. Nobody knows because only one guy knows right now and it’s Vince and he’s been tearing up the script every single week and writing a new one and this is where we are right now.”

    Idk, I'm scared Vince wants all 4 of them in a feud and is just going to force Charlotte and Becky together to make it happen

    If so, it'll kill all my interest in those four despite how good the matches may be.

    I know im being a little picky, but stuff like that drives me crazy with the product

    Really look forward to AEW on TV. And it really is minor shit that frustrates me the most with WWE, and shit I think AEW can easily avoid. Things like storylines falling off a cliff, nonsensical booking and shit like putting Becky and Charlotte together just because they turned Bayley heel. They want to keep Charlotte involved in a story she has no real reason to be involved in again and need to turn her face now to make the match with Bayley make sense, so we will just throw her together with Becky who shes feuded with for a year now with no real reason given. And the thing is, they could have booked this in a way that made sense if they thought out anything ahead of time

    That's the one thing you have to sacrifice as a main roster WWE fan. You get the most talented roster in the world that can put on killer matches and PPVs, but nothing makes sense.

    She's not believable for me unfortunately, I want to but I cant buy the tough girl gimmick when she danced an Irish jig before and is mediocre in ring at kicking ass. Fuck it doesn't add up. Charlotte more believable and I hate that they fast tracked her to so many title reigns.

    you can't hold an NXT gimmick when she was a jobber against her, that's like saying you didn't believe The Rock because he originally came out smiling with a pineapple on his head

    Probably not, but it was part of her 24/7 documentary or whatever that was. It made me sympathize with her the doc itself, but also made her so unbelievable. I can't ignore promo shit but watch her in the ring. She is legit average at best, not a top performer quality wise. She did great with that Nia shit and creating this anti hero gimmick. But long term it's meh. Cause we know too much.

    For sure, but there should be subtle since we know so much as wrestling fans. We're not bright eyed Jimmy watching in kayfabe.

    I also don't think she portrays her character well.

    I just don't know what you expect out female performers, in ring. There's not a single WWE main roster female I'd consider particularly exciting in the ring. Char delivers in big matches, but none of it innovative or varried. Sasha maybe in the past but certainly not recent history. Outside of the joshi gals in AEW no one is bringing anything groundbreaking. Who's the best female performer in ring right now that isn't in NXT or Japan? Tessa Blanchard?

    Leaked photoshoots for SD on Fox promos show Becky Lynch, Rey, Miz and Alexa Bliss in Fox and SD photos.

    Wouldn't be shocked for Becky to drop title now to facilitate the move
