  1. At risk of retroactive fantasy booking, the Sting / HHH match had what seemed to be a perfect setup just before Survivor Series. Sting's appearance set the Authority out the door for a few blessed weeks - why? The motivation I read into it was "the Authority is calling themselves a New World Order, and Sting cannot abide New World Orders. " And then the Mania match happens.
  2. I am really not a fan of Reigns/Uso. I don't feel that they've done enough to establish the 'tribal chief' thing, and it comes off kind-of racially charged. It was way too repetitive for my taste and I was glad it was over, as opposed to relieved.
  3. This overdelivered. I say this as someone who thinks that Ember-Asuka was a really great match - I really hope Ember's taken time to work on her character.
  4. Man, the Vengeance 2003 tag with Kidman and Rey against Haas and Benjamin was so good.
  5. I would characterize the issue more as "even with backstage permission, the performance of the act itself (lacking permission in the world of the show) is problematic. " We also don't know (and realistically, don't have reason to believe) that permission has been freely given.
  6. This is precisely a reason to dread the coming days.
  7. I'm of two minds on Sasha these days - I truly respect her dedication to the craft, but it felt like, in terms of being able to execute the spots in her match, she more-than-once wasn't quite where she needed to be. (In this case, the series of flips and rollups towards the end of the match - far too often it was just looking like she and Asuka were tumbling for the fun of it. )
  8. moreso than usual, they can literally do anything (given the pandemic/performance center era) ... and they did that.
  9. At risk of fantasy booking, I could see Io turning to Rhea as a counter to Gonzales (following the line of Charlotte helping Sasha against Dana and Emma in exchange for a title shot. )
  10. At risk of sounding conspiratorial, I’m thinking it’s intentional that the first three folks to come forward are backstage women and a non-wrestling guy (who I first saw on the Jeff Hardy DUI Smackdown, speaking loudly in the center of a cluster of talent, a shot that will surely age poorly if it reflects a regular backstage occurrence. )
  11. Tuned in about halfway through - Sasha really was working for four, eh?
  12. I have plenty of faith in the editing crew. I don't have it in the final cut.
  13. A secondary frustration with Charlotte is that based on her MMC and non-title picture CharLynch periods, she's capable of being charismatic and fun, and these extended periods of wooden dominance and offhand dismissal of competitors don't help anyone, including herself.
  14. This is really interesting. I'm not sure if it's better for Rhea than it is ominous for Shayna, but I'm leaning to the former - having Shayna stay NXT Women's champion only to lose to Charlotte (on the spiritual heels of Asuka's streak) would probably have done the totality of the NXT Women's division fewer favors than where we're at now. In terms of match quality, how do we think Shayna/Charlotte would have compared to Rhea/Charlotte?
  15. the Billie-Peyton bit was upsetting, and while I commend them both as performers for it, I really hope we don't go there again any time soon.
