    Ruby is alright, but never been big into her. Was surprised to see AEW fans hyping her up pre signing as a gamechanger or big deal.

    Thunder Rosa on the other hand is legit. Great look, great mic skills, great working. Total package. Hope she's the one to take the strap off Britt.

    Ruby sucks in the ring too. It wasn’t all Jade that the finals match looked sloppy af. Ruby’s matches are always clunky as shit.

    She is turn off the TV/skip the segment bad.

    Conversely, Brock Lesnar all of a sudden being magic on the mic is incredible.

    Brock was never bad, don't get it fucked up. He's had a mouth piece recently, but his segments back in the day with Kurt Angle were GOLD!

    I'll always be a Bork fan even if I watch 0 seconds of WWE. He's great.

    Lesnar was pretty entertaining before he left WWE the first time. I think when he came back, they gave him stupid stuff to say for his first promo, which obviously wasn't going to work for him, so he made them hire Heyman back.

    I’m interested to see if they keep Heyman with Lesnar or they’re setting up a double cross in a future unification match to keep Brock as a special babyface attraction and still have Heyman/Reigns as the touring champion

    If they unify the titles, there is zero chance Brock is the champ. Guy won’t work one show consistently, let alone two. Nor do I blame him. And WWE doesn’t have it in itself to book two shows a week without its champion.

    I really never get the Brock hate. Especially from people who watched him since day 1.

    First let me say Paul was amazing on Smackdown last night.

    Second I think this is where we are headed. A unification title match at Mania night two where Paul double crosses Brock.

    Brock as a baby face is having legit impact on WWE attendance and TV ratings. They would be wise to go down this route as a special attraction baby face.

    To me, it looks like they’re setting up Heyman to be with a new guy or group. Neither of these guys need the rub, but if you put Heyman with somebody new, immediate superstar. It’s probably too early for Steveson, but a group of monsters would be fun. Harland, new look Viking Raiders, etc.

    I just don’t see Heyman agreeing to doing the travel to be with anyone less than a top draw

    Although I’m not sure if his pay has anything to do with where who he’s managing is on the card

    Pairing Paul with a superstar doesn’t always translate… see CM Punk and Cesaro

    Eventually when they turn Roman baby face I think Paul breaking off to lead a new heel faction against Roman makes a ton of sense. Could be a great way to introduce Bron to the main roster as the centerpiece to a new faction. You can use the “I’ve known his family my entire life” when reasoning why he turned his back on Roman.

    Brock is good when you need a two minute "cut to the chase" promo.

    Ask him to do one of those dreaded WWE style "in ring segment" promos that last a quarter-hour and it's death. Lesnar is low key great on the mic, just needs small doses.

    We'll look back on Brock as one of the greatest ever to do it, if we don't already.

    Can’t remember what pod I was listening to and they were speaking about how Brock is probably now a legit candidate to be on a lot of Mt. Rushmore’s. At first I was like nah… but then I thought about his run and I wouldn’t be mad if people had him that high. Def one of the best ever.

    Report coming out that Triple H’s reaction to the NXT cuts and changes is that he’s “super bummed out”

    What the fuck? Is he alright?

    In the 2022 wrestling draft AEW trades executive Cody Rhodes to WWE in exchange for HHH.

    works for everyone. HHH gets a product he can legitimately make better and Brandi finally gets her chance of her childhood dream of being on Total Divas.

    He’s recovering from a major heart issue. I’m sure he felt NXT was going to do the same numbers as Dynamite and when they couldn’t he no longer had ground to stand on. Really a shame because NXT Black and Gold was NJPW than anyone has done to this point.

    He’s part of the family. He’s never going to tell all in a way that reflects bad on Vince. That’s probably all we ever get from him. I’m sure he will be asked by media again and likely to give a canned PC answer. I guess we could hope for a tell all book lol.

    Heyman going away for a while and showing up with the next big thing Gable Stevenson would be cool. Assuming Stevenson is legit. Can't attach him to some midcarder now.

    I mean WWE does a shot job of building stars, so the idea that Brock takes five months off, comes back and takes the belt off of four dudes working every week doesn’t shock you that people are bothered?

    I k ow they are unifying, but the belts are on the four biggest layups. No imagination at all. It’s like giving Cody every AEW belt and pretending that’s the way it’s supposed to be

    Heading to Smackdown this Friday in Omaha with niece and nephew.
    Main Event was supposed to be 6 man tag--Roman/Usos vs Drew/New Day. Co-Main was supposed to be Charlotte vs Sasha.
    Sounds like Drew and Sasha will both be out...I wonder if/when/where there will be any news about the upcoming card?

    Both Drew and Sasha are injured and won’t be back till February. I know WWE was bringing in talent from the other brands to piece together house shows and TV dark matches.
