    I’m going to a Raw house show tonight. I think it’ll be my third WWE event.

    Supposed to feature Bianca Belair v Carmella, Riddle v Seth Rollins, and The Mysterios v Judgment Day at the very least.

    In my experience, the house shows are more consistently good than the product on TV since we don’t have to endure replays and montages in the same night that something happened.

    House show's are great. I bet that Riddle and Rollins match is fire.

    They’re billing it as a “Tallahassee Street Fight”. That usually means someone is dead. I’m sweatin.

    I remember APA vs. Mean Street Posse in like 99 during a Smackdown from Tallahassee. Ron had the whole crowd doing the warchant while they beat the shit out Pete Gas and Joey Abs.

    5 Star mat classic anywhere in the world. It used to be on YouTube but I can't find it. Sure it's on The Cock.

    Not sure that 'Sasha & Charlotte' were the problem - the writing team was. Booking was clearly incapable of handling any more than half a dozen women at one time, meaning everyone else got the short end of the stick.

    And what's going on with Bayley - STILL injured? :idk:

    It takes time to develop who you are. The Horsewomen took a long time to develop. It was years before The Man happened. Ding Dong Bayley took all the way up till the pandemic to be found. I don’t agree the problem was Sasha, Char or Naomi. I also don’t think the issue is creative. It takes time for a lot of talent to get it. A lot of talent get TV time with that trio active on the roster.

    Bayley still rehabbing. She’s been in the PC working back into ring shape.

    There are far less women to develop than men, and look at the Mens failure rate with character development. It looks worse because there are fewer than them.

    Has anyone got a comeback other than “muh WWE programming” when people (who have watched less than 3-4 hours of WWE programming in a decade) talk about how stupid Bucks matches are when you stop to think why someone would just do choreographed back flips in the middle of a fight

    if someone grabbed you by the arm and threw you and you ran into some ropes why would you bounce off and keep running.

    You’re posting in an echo chamber of the most online wrestling fans in the world. We know who that is. I would posit the majority of people who watch wrestling products on a weekly basis in the US would probably ask you who the fuck that is.

    WWE still does 10x the revenue worldwide of NJPW and AEW

    So has Dane Cook

    He spent like 15 years in TNA on cable TV before he went to NJPW so I wouldn’t give them credit for that
