Nxt was brilliant start to finish every match was top class imo for 1 of there biggest shows it wasn't overloaded like summerslam I get the feeling tonight will be a bit much and only looking forward to the 2 main events as the rest have been on raw or smackdown recently or I'm just not intrested.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Aug 2017 20:52:03
I wasn't expecting the tag match to be all that! Boy was I wrong! Great PPV throughout.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Aug 2017 20:35:18
I enjoyed Summerslam but God, did it go on a bit.
Cut out the pointless matches like Corbin/ Cena and Rusev/ Orton which were only on the card for the crowd to see easy wins for Cena and Orton and which have wrecked any momentum Rusev and Corbin in particular had.
But like LeeWils said, loved both the tag team matches.
Strowman v Lesnar at No Mercy anyone?

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Aug 2017 21:19:24
I want to see them give Slater a shot at the Universal title because of the "success" of his 3MB mates. Then have Lesnar lose after getting screwed over by Joe, Strowman, and the Shield.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Aug 2017 21:49:14
Jables could you imagine that.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Aug 2017 10:45:27
NXT was great, and I enjoyed the majority of Summerslam, the main event especially delivered everything the hype promised for a change.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Aug 2017 14:59:28
Summerslam predictions:
Jordan and The Hardyz v the Miztourage
Miztourage should win but wont.
Tozawa v Neville - Neville should but wont.
New Day v Usos - Usos to win
Big Show v Big Cass - Cass to win (clean I Hope)
Orton v Rusev. Rusev needs this, but expect an RKO from nowhere.
Cena v Corbin. I hope Corbin, but can only see a Cena win
I hope Sheamus and Cesaro beat the mini Shield, but I doubt it.
Naomi will retain, as will Bliss.
If Balor arrives as the demon, he won't lose.
Styles retains. Owens gets pissed at Shane.
Mahal will retain and keep the title for a while yet.
I hope Strowman or Joe win, but I suspect it will be Lesnar.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Aug 2017 10:06:02
Pretty spot on minus the Naomi and bliss part.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Aug 2017 10:43:14
Despite become fairly disinterested in WWE, I find myself being keen for Summerslam and NXT, the breaks done me good.

Few matches that look good on paper, its a loaded card, I suppose this is the 2nd biggest show of the year.

Great stuff from all three brands, let's hope they deliver.

Agree1 Disagree1

20 Aug 2017 14:47:05
Well, Takeover delivered. Hope Summerslam can do the same.
Loved Aleister Black's entrance.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Aug 2017 10:46:16
I think they did pretty good.

Why bother with smackdown, raw Rulz.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Aug 2017 21:51:53
The last few weeks of SD have been the best they've had this summer but Fashion Police w/ a side of Usos, is the main thing that's kept me watching. Which it should be AJ vs Owens, but Vince was burning cereal again through most of that feud.

RAW since GBoF has seemingly gotten better each week and last night was one of the best ppv go home shows of the "new era". Hopefully it's the beginning of sustained change and not just them trying during a build to a big ppv.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Aug 2017 13:05:11
I must be the only person who thought the fashion files was a load of cr*p and a completely pointless waste of time.

Agree0 Disagree1

18 Aug 2017 10:41:02
I'm with you Mr Lee, the Fashion Files, is a nice little change of pace, but the content is awful.

I like that they are putting something in there for the smarks, but the guys involved really stink it up.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Aug 2017 20:32:48
Lets hope Ric Flair makes a good recovery.

I actually enjoyed RAW. Strowman/ Reigns was the best I have seen between the two, but in my opinion, Sheamus and Cesaro are regularly stealing the show.
I am in a bit of a quandary with Cesaro. He is a fantastic solo wrestler but I really enjoy his partnership with Sheamus.
They will no doubt face Ambrose and Rollins at Summerslam and If they win, which I hope they do, they will stick around as a team for the foreseeable future.
By the way, is it too much to hope that they leave Amore in the shark cage and forget about him?

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Aug 2017 20:37:02
RAW has been pretty solid since GBoF and I've really enjoyed the 4way build and Ambrose/ Rollins. I like and have enjoyed Sheamus and Cesaro but I'd like to see them split. Partly because I'd like to see Cesaro and Ohno together, at least for a bit, and partly because I want to see Sheamus in more of a straight up hoss/ brawler team with someone like Killian Dain.

Instead of the Shark Cage, they should put Enzo in that caged-off trailer that WCW used in the King of the Road match. Then just drive him around New York City the entire day. With him having to shill SS, the TV shows, and the network, to anyone and everyone he passes.

Agree1 Disagree0

11 Aug 2017 10:59:16
I'm almost sad to report I haven't watched a Raw or Smackdown for weeks, and will probably cancel my network subscription after Summerslam.

I'm just not feeling WWE at all right now.

Agree1 Disagree1

11 Aug 2017 12:51:27
same here bessex. I can't remember the last time I watched raw or smackdown as they have sucked! The network has too much content on for me to cancel.

Agree0 Disagree1

12 Aug 2017 12:29:42
With RAW in particular, you are both missing something. Yes, it is too long and yes, there is still some dross in it to fill the time.
But. Strowman/ Reigns/ Joe has been high quality. Strowman's kick of Crews and the chair throw at Reigns both made me go wow and as I said, Cesaro and Sheamus are making me glad to watch tag team wrestling again. Breeze and Fandango's fashion files are hysterical.
RAW has improved at the same speed that Smackdown has gone backwards.

Agree1 Disagree0

13 Aug 2017 11:46:56
Breeze and Fandango are Smackdown mate.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Aug 2017 15:42:32
DOH! Thanks RKO. The perils of messaging with a hang over. Still stand by my Strownman/ Reigns and Cesaro/ Sheamus comments though.

Zayn had just been floored by Jinder and the Singh brothers at last night's live event in Montreal then who runs out to help him? Owens. Is this the start of a face turn and the mending of a broken friendship? Strange if it is because that is what I thought the were doing with Ambrose and Rollins.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Aug 2017 16:22:33
I think it was just a hometown special moment type of thing. I'd love to see them tag in WWE though.

With the Dusty Classic later this year, I think it'd be cool if they took it to the next level and make it a company tournament instead of just NXT. Make it so people from different brands could tag. So we could have fantasy teams and matchups become a reality.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Aug 2017 13:32:41
A Dusty Classic across the company would not only make for a good PPV, but the stories of how the teams come together and inevitably some collide could make great tv for a month.

Not really a big deal but Eva Marie has officially left wwe.

I thought she had gone months ago!

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Aug 2017 18:20:25
She got suspended a few months ago - hasn't been seen since, and now she's announced she's left on social media. but same, forgot all about her.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Aug 2017 13:33:30
Perhaps I'll treat myself to one last goodbye in her memory.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Aug 2017 10:52:52
Reading that Enzo has p*ssed vince off so much they are at the point of sending him to 205 or back to NXT. I imagine you would want to murder him after a while, he is going to have to be careful otherwise he may find himself future endeavoured. He has tons of heat on him from the office and the other guys. Hopefully he sorts it out before he is gone.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Aug 2017 16:11:58
I think they should just make Enzo a manager. Neither he or the company seems to want to put in the work for him to become anything as an in-ring talent.

Put him on 205Live as a manager for some of the CWs, and make 'The Certified G's' vs 'Titus Worldwide' a central storyline.

Agree1 Disagree0

05 Aug 2017 12:18:29
I completely agree Jables.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Aug 2017 13:37:13
I actually enjoy his selling, and I quite like his character.

The guy who never stops choppsing off, gets slapped about then carries on talking smack is a nice twist.

I can certainly empathise with chat getting you in trouble.

He seems massively over as well, I don't know why the Fed would try and cool him off, as a personality he's money.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Aug 2017 12:53:07
So all this back and forth with Reigns and Joe about Reigns never beating him to end in a mid card Raw match. Nice work from the writing team there.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Aug 2017 10:14:07
That was odd.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Aug 2017 16:26:32
As long as it was done to give Reigns a moment before he takes the pin at SummerSlam, I'm okay with it. Lesnar and Strowman are unlikely to take the pin in the Fatal 4way, so it's probably going to be Joe or Reigns. So as long as Joe isn't the fall guy twice in a row, losing the 3way on RAW won't seem that bad, and they can still go with the "you've never beaten me 1on1" if Joe and Reigns feud again down the line.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Aug 2017 13:38:38
A good heel would never acknowledge his defeat, just lie about it, like how Joe pretty much suggested he beat Brock at GBOF.

You hear Joe speak its like he won.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jul 2017 23:00:50
It looks like Cena will be gone again after No Mercy at the end of September. If not sooner. He was just announced as being cast in the Transformers Bumblebee spin-off/ prequel. It appears that it's a big role and the film is already in pre-production, with a release date set for next year. Cena being reportedly scheduled for No Mercy, and other dates before it, came out about a week ago, so it's unknown if that'll still happen, or SummerSlam for that matter, but w/ the movie it would appear that No Mercy would be the latest he sticks around, if he doesn't head out before.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Aug 2017 10:30:52
Im assuming then Either Nakamura Wins tonight or Mahal beats Cena at Summerslam.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jul 2017 16:33:30
Jones has called out Lesnar for a UFC match. Who would win?
Jones is obviously more athletic, younger and he has also beaten some high quality opposition.
On the other hand, Lesnar has 50 pounds on him.
My money? Jones just, but a result the other way wouldn't surprise me.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jul 2017 22:42:25
Just like the saying "Everyone has a plan until they get knocked in the mouth", "Everyone thinks they're a badass until they find themselves getting tossed around like a sack of potatoes. "

I know Jones' striking/ kicking skill/ speed is superior to Lesnar's, but there's a reason the weight classes are so small in weight variation. Jones tweeted the other day about the weight difference being 40pds. Their listed weights have a 60pd difference, and Brock in years past, while with WWE, has usually stayed about 10-15pds above his listed weight. Unless a 40pd max weight difference is a pre-approved condition to the fight, Jones may be the first UFCer to take a trip to Suplex City.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jul 2017 11:59:37
There is a rumour flying around that Shane McMahon will be wrestling/ falling off tall things at Summerslam, probably against Owens.
I really, really hope this is not true, but if it is, what an ego the man has got. I can think of nothing worse.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jul 2017 15:36:21
The interactions between KO and Shane, suggest that could be what happens. The rumor itself though, I think is from someone that posted a "leaked" SummerSlam card. It was basically rumor based, with a few guesses.

If they used it to write Shane off of tv and move KO away from "New Face of America" to something closer to "Kill, Steen, Kill". Then I'd be all for the match. If it's just Shane wanting another match, then no.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jul 2017 16:23:05
Give it to him, he's entertaining unlike 90% of wrestling. I don't watch anymore because it has gotten so boring it's not even funny.

Shane puts on a show, and is a draw to people who want to be entertained.

I have a feeling that Harper and Rowan may be reforming as a team again. I'm assuming those are the guys attacking Breezango. Smackdown do need more tag teams. With Alpha and The Vaudevillians gone and The hype bros on the verge of splitting that only leaves 3 or 4 tag teams on Smackdown. To be honest I hope it is Sanity instead but with Harper and Rowan dissapearing off of TV for a few weeks.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2017 23:30:02
I think it's those two too, although i'm loving the fashion police find them quite funny.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jul 2017 13:48:31
It would be pretty out of character for those beasts to be sneaking around after the minnows of the division.

I personally think they both deserve to be better involved in US and World title picture.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jul 2017 18:26:18
With Shakeup 2: Electric Boogaloo basically a sure thing. Who the attacker (s) are, will probably be changed in "creative meetings" at least a dozen times.

Harper and Rowan were my first thought as well but, right now I'm just hoping it's not something like Ellsworth and the bunny with Dillinger in the costume.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jul 2017 09:14:18
Bessex as much as I agree with you I don't think Vince does. Mania was set up perfectly for a Wyatt, Orton and Harper triple threat which would have been great but Vince decided to hold Harper away and we ended up with possibly the worst match of the night.

I suppose another guess could be a heel hype bros. Maybe Mojo eliminating Zack from that battle royal was the start of a darker side of Mojo and he may have conviced Zack is every man for himself.

Although watching WWE recently it could be anyone. If Kurt Angle can be Jason Jordan's dad then this could be the return of The Hillbillies.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jul 2017 15:56:24
I thought it was a really good episode of Southpaw Regional Wrestling last night, until the Sea Creature got replaced. Then I started to lose my high, and remembered it was a Smackdown ppv.

So who do you guys think will be Cena's tag partner (s) at SummerSlam against the stable of evil Indians/ Foreigners? Mr. America, Sgt. Slaughter, The American Males, Luger and the Lex Express, The Patriot, The 'Native American' Tatanka, 'Hacksaw' Jim Duggan, and/ or others?

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jul 2017 19:51:02
If he is going to have a partner, my money would be on Kane.
But, what a disappointing PPV. Only good match was the tag match, Everything else was bad to average.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jul 2017 11:48:26
Cena to challenge Mahal at Summerslam.
Cena hits AA and covers for record title win but Corbin comes out of nowhere, clobbers him with MITB case and covers Cena for the 1,2,3.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jul 2017 14:34:33
Cena And Orton Vs Khali and Jinder. Yawn.

Word is starting to go around that Lesnar has informed WWE that he won't be re-signing after WM 34, and that he is already trying to get in position to have a UFC fight by the end of the year.

If true the expectation would be that he'd lose the title match at SS and possibly be written off after a failed attempt to reclaim the title at the september ppv.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jul 2017 13:32:39
Good ridance.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jul 2017 14:58:51
I think that would be best for business. I have not watched a single RAW since mania and a large part of that is the fact there is no champion.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jul 2017 11:15:35
Would UFC take him back after his positive drugs test after his fight with Hunt? Doubt it.
But now something has to be done about an absent champ.
Reigns is the obvious favourite, but I would love to see Strowman be given a chance. Having Strowman beat Lesnar clean would really cement his reputation.

Lesnar has apparently already filed paperwork to begin testing, to get reinstated. With the supposed plan being for his return fight to be in december.

I'd imagine UFC is looking for Lesnar to potentially be the replacement draw for McGregor, depending on what his post Mayweather fight future is.

It's vague but hopeful. Cena recently stated that he knows his days are numbered.

There's also talk that there is trouble in the Roman Empire, as his merch sales have went way down this year and he's the primary reason given when people explain why they cancelled the network.

So things should at least be more eventful this fall then the expected death march to Reigns vs Lesnar II at WM 34.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jul 2017 14:15:36
It looks like we'll get a Fatal 4 Way at Summerslam (Lesnar, Regins, Joe and Strowman) And then it seems much more open about how they move forward. Before recent developments it was dead certain that Reigns v Lesner would headline WM34. Now I can see it being Reigns v Cena and either Strowman or Joe to beat Lesnar in a loser leaves WWE match. I'd prefer Strowman to 'retire' Lesnar. I'd have Joe face KO in a cross promotional match. That gives you potential WM main events of:
Reigns v Cena (Universal Title)
AJ Styles v Nakamura (WWE Title)
Strowman v Lesnar (loser leaves)


Joe v Owens would be a great upper mid card match.

I'd have KO win the US Title back before AN. Have Joe win the IC Title then have a cross promotional Champ v Champ match.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jul 2017 19:23:01
I still think they'll do a 2nd shake-up after SummerSlam. It's an easy way to move some people around and get a ratings boost before Monday Night Football starts.

I could now see Reigns getting moved to Smackdown. To feud w/ Jinder, in september, when they go to India (where Roman's primary fanbase is as well), beat him for the title at the october ppv (In hopes of being cheered as a "Great American Hero"), and then face Cena at Mania. With his Face/ Heel/ Tweener role being determined by his merch numbers. A retirement match, for Goldberg, being another option if Cena feels the need to have another mixed tag against the Kanellis', a celeb couple, or whoever else.

Now that a bit of time has past and we have had a chance to see it in action how do people feel about Mahal as a champion. I'm OK with it but they need to get Orton out of the picture. He looks like he has been phoning it in for years.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jul 2017 00:26:03
Smackdown over the last few months has been headlined by a boring feud with an unrespectable, uninteresting, 1 note, entertainment vacuum as champion and a long stale challenger, on a show that has remained 'Total Divas' on the women side and turned into 'WCW Saturday Night' on the men's side. Literally the only reason I watch at all right now is for Breezango's Fashion Files.

They were still stupid to throw the WWE title on Jinder. It should of been the U. S. title, and he should of been kept in tertiary storylines. Where he would be able to gain credibility and grow his character. Instead they basically said "hey, I know you like playing 7 minutes in Heaven with Ambrose/ Styles and friends, but we want to do something different. So we're going to shove a giant spiked dildo, we found in a sewer, up your arse.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jul 2017 11:10:54
I don't mind Jinder being champion, but you are right. This Orton feud has no zip to it at all.
Jables says Jinder should have been given the US title instead of the big one, but genuine surprises are so few and far apart in the WWE these days and Jinder's was good to see.
I do suspect that Cena's flag match is just a precursor to another USA! USA! match against Jinder at Summerslam and I am sure that after that normal service will have been resumed.
Styles or Nakamura will be champ by the end of the year.

It was something new for a while and Jinder has been pretty good. But he's not top heel material IMO. He'd be fine as US champ but not as the top heel. AJ should beat Jinder for the title. Then have Corbin cash in on AJ. Give Corbin a short reign before AJ wins it back. Have Nakamura win the RR to step up AJ v Nakamura at WM. Then give Jinder a good run as heel US Champ.

That's a match we'd all like to see.

18 Jul 2017 20:37:01
I must admit to being totally underwhelmed.
I suspect that this will run for a while, HHH will drive a rift between them by promising Jordan an Intercontinental match and we will have an Angle/ HHH match up.

Only because he is a former Olympian So would have followed in his father's footsteps to a t.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jul 2017 11:11:13
I think Gable and Jordan will both get over on their matches.

This is certainly a lift for Jason Jordan though, they can fire him in to the top end of the midcard straight away if they choose.

The sort of guy that can have great matches with anyone, beat the Miztourage, then lose to t Miz to make everyone seem like a bigger deal.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jul 2017 23:28:39
I'm just happy it didn't have anything to do with Dixie or Steph. The segment itself was meh, but at least it's a plausible storyline in a correct time frame. As Jordan was conceived and born while Angle would of been in college.

The one rumor of Gable being Steph's and Angle's love child would of meant that a 16 year old Angle would of gotten with Steph just before she turned 9.

Alistair black on nxt seems to be getting better everytime I see him got me thinking in nxt they seem to hit harder and more convincing than in the main roster has anyone else noticed this.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Jul 2017 19:04:06
The difference is mostly in the people running the products. Vince wants his cartoony, 80's Hogan, paint by numbers style. While HHH allows more freedom to work the modern styles.

It's been rumored that they plan to move Black up to a main roster sooner than later, but they need to move up the older talent (Roode, EY, Ohno, and Itami) first, and focus NXT on the talent closer to 30 than 40. They have McIntyre, Strong, Black, Dain, Gargano, Ciampa, Almas, Lorcan, and the now officially signed Kyle O'Reilly and Lio Rush. With Adam Cole (possibly any day now), Ricochet, Keith Lee, Matt Riddle, and others likely headed there within the next year or so.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Jul 2017 22:42:22

Ricochet and Rush would be the most likely to skip NXT as they could be put with the CWs, but they aren't making much of an attempt to try to build the division up. Plus HHH would likely want Ricochet as a central figure in NXT for awhile and Rush is really young/ inexperienced.

Unless someone like Donovan Dijak got ripped and Vince fell in love with his look, anyone that gets signed, not named Omega or Okada, is probably spending some time in NXT. Save for various returning talent with main roster experience.

Are the broken hardyz on their way?
How wonderful.

I thought it was budget that they teased it like this.

I was expecting Matt to get a chair shot or something to awaken the celestial beings.

Now its like they've confirmed its just a put on, the reason the gimmick worked so well was he was tweeting and talking the gimmick outside of wrestling.

Frankly I'm not interested in half a broken Matt, it needs to be the full package, Maxel, Vangaurd 1, the lot.

WWE run a big risk of finally having something TNA can say they did better.

Jeff Jarrett said yesterday in the GFW conference call that the Hardyz do not yet own the gimmick.

Terrible name for a ppv but was actually one of the best I've seen in a long time.

Agree0 Disagree0

I enjoyed it and it has set up a few future storylines.
Cesaro and Sheamus looked top quality and the way Matt was busted up is an obvious lead into the return of Broken Matt Hardy.
Miz/ Ambrose and Wyatt/ Rollins feuds have both out lasted their welcome and with Reigns losing, albeit strong, I suspect as I have said before that this is leading to a Shield reunion at Summerslam.
Joe looked good in defeat and has cemented his place on RAW's top table.

Agree0 Disagree0

I thought Broken Matt was coming back the other month when they had the steel cage match.

H should take a conchiarto, obviously have to be gimmicked these days, and come out of it mad.

RAW over the last month has been pretty solid, and the ppv was pretty good. Hopefully they keep building off it and it's not just the ole 'try in july' to build to SummerSlam, and then 'blander than clay after Labor Day'.

Anyone else see the screen shots of 'Big ass' Cass and 'eat Balls' Sasha, from GBoF.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Jul 2017 18:30:15
Yeah I really enjoyed GBOF. Tag Match was awesome, Enzo v Cass was decent, I loved Reigns v Showman especially the end. Leaner v Joe was very good. I would have preferred it to be a tiny bit longer but I enjoyed it.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Jul 2017 06:33:21
Maybe it's just me and maybe I'm nitpicking but the Cass and Enzo match could've been done better. I feel like this should be a 3 match feud ending at Summerslam. So tonight for instance I would've had cass crush Enzo like he did however make it out to be Cass was too good to even try to pin Enzo he just wanted to hurt him so after a bit of crushing him the ref calls the match. Cass looks like a douche and Enzo already with his great mic skills shows he's not willing to quit. Few weeks later they have another match where Enzo wins by rollup, could be considered a fluke win. Finish it off by having possibly a last man standing match since Enzo just kept getting up in this scenario at GBOF, Enzo of course loses in a somewhat close match. End of feud Cass looks like an unstoppable monster, Enzo becomes one of the top babyfaces that doesn't give up kinda like a poor mans Cena. You can instantly put Enzo in the IC conversation or make him a manager or even tag team if you wish. Just imagining a feud with Miz and both their mic skills would be great.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Jul 2017 11:14:20
I see Cas kicking the crap out of Enzo, and Cas trying to move on to a title opportunity, but Enzo's run ins and threat continue to cost him.

Something like a last man standing match is ideal for Enzo to eventually get a win, because there is scope for something out of the ordinary, and he still doesn't get to pin Cas properly.

I'd have Cas beat him 5 or 6 times building to a no DQ/ last man standing scenario, built as the death of Enzo, then have him taser Cas for the shock win.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Jul 2017 20:24:59
Aries has left so I wouldn't be too surprised to see Enzo in the Cruiser mix up.
Cas is destined for bigger things than an Enzo feud.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Jul 2017 18:35:06
Cass will have a good run mist likely. i'd send Enzo down to the cruiserweight division. He's really over right now. Have him be the one to finally topple Neville. He could use his brains so Neville still looks unbeatable. Enzo will be even more over and the cruiserweights should be able to carry him to decent matches. Everyone's a winner!

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Jul 2017 09:23:20
Enzo is so over sending him down to 205 simply seems unfair.

I know he's short, but surly when you're over on Raw the last thing you want is to be sent down to the show nobody is watching.

I haven't ever seen an episode, there are two cruiserweight matches on Raw every week, and that seems like plenty.

How would people feel if superstars starting having more time off?

For instance Seth Rollins has nothing to do at the minute so rather than just chucking him in random feuds have him off tv for a bit and then build up his return when he can be inserted in either title picture. There is so much tv now that I feel the wrestlers are struggling to become stars.

Take Ambrose for instance he has been in the IC title picture for months and now people are bored of him.

Just sticking guys in random matches is not the way forward, it does more harm than good.

We all hate the part timers but look how big they all are and it's because the fans have the opportunity to miss them, seeing Rollins or Ambrose (just examples there are many more) is not a must see. I really think taking people of tv for a bit and giving them vignettes for their return could give some a boost. Just my opinion of course but I'll be interested to hear others.

Agree0 Disagree0

In theory I like the idea. Pointless feuds and tag team ups are a waste of the wrestler's time and add nothing for the proper fans. In addition an occasional break would keep the wrestler fitter and give a chance for the niggling injuries they all carry to heal. It would also help keep the shows fresh as someone who hasn't appeared for a few weeks makes a surprise entrance.
In practice I am not sure the WWE would allow it. RAW has to fill hours and needs most of the roster to do so. If, as some rumours say, the show will be back to 2 hours in 2019, then maybe it could work.
Wrestle-by-number fans expect to see a wrestler's finishing move at each show and the WWE are only too pleased to give it to them.
I personally would like to see your idea but I doubt we will be given the opportunity.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Jul 2017 11:19:12
The guys and girls need to be out there to earn their money, but they don't need to be on TV.

Its not really time off, but there is no reason why you couldn't have put the fairly nothing Rollins Wyatt feud on as a dark main event and built up some anticipation for their return.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Jul 2017 11:25:57
I see Styles won the US title at a live event at The Garden last night.
Makes a change for a title to swap hands at a non PPV.
I reckon KO may even call for a rematch at Smackdown, but I suspect he will end up in a number 1 contender match against Zayn.
3 way for the US at Battleground in my opinion.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Jul 2017 23:41:06
Zayn and Mike Bennett-Kanellis seem to be starting a feud, but maybe it'll be a Ambrose vs Samson situation where Sami loses a couple of times on SD after interference from KO. Then MBK starts feuding with someone like Dillinger or Harper, as Zayn focuses on KO and the U. S. title.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Jul 2017 11:20:28
Very cool to have a title change at the Garden off of TV.

Austin Aries has asked for and been granted his release from the company.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Jul 2017 11:07:29
Things haven't turned out as well as they could have for him. From the broken eye socket he suffered on NXT to his feud with Neville not taking off like most thought it would.
Shame really, but good luck to him.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Jul 2017 23:23:19
It's now being said that WWE released him, and that he supposedly had a bad attitude especially after his and Neville's Mania match was on the pre-show and left off the DVD.

If true I'm still on Aries side. Most of the booking this year has been rotten skunk arse. So for a late 30's guy who was in the bin during the Hogan/ Bischoff TNA dumpster fire, It's easy to understand him not being happy.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Jul 2017 11:22:13
I thought he would be a bigger deal, but truth be told he looks pretty small time when working with anyone worth working with.

He is just too indy.
