  1. I'm a fan of the shortened Andrade. It has a nice ring to it by itself. Plus, it might be the only way he'd get pushed is having a sexy shortened name.so it's either "Cien" Almos or push.

    Zelina Vega added so much to that match for me. She's just so phenomenal with her reactions to everything.

    I watched the Total Divas episode with Naomi's wedding and it made me teary. I will always cheer for Naomi. I like this feud so far because it shows the strength of their marriage and not becoming a zany cheating/ jealous  angle. 

    Becky is cool.

    Women's tag chamber what do we have for teams 

    Boss and Hug, Absolution,  IIconics,  Riot Squad,  Tamina & Nia and I'm going to guess maybe Naomi/Carmella? 

    I'm trying to think of other teams and how they're splitting up into half Raw half Smackdown. Would they bring out Lita & Trish Stratus or the Bellas? Or would they try to dual champ (or at least claim as a possibility without actually going over) for Asuka w/ Naomi? I'm a fan of the match idea. Some team gets left out and they become the first challengers. Good fun.

    There will be ritual hazing and those who complain will be forced to watch Billy Gunn matches. Yup, he totally said that.

    I like that the New Age Outlaws are running Wrestling right now. Billy Gunn with this start up and Roaddogg holding down the WWE. If only X-PAC can just get that writers gig over at New Japan then he won't look like a jackoff at the reunion.

  4. Other than the Tweet (or instagram?) like, has there been any actual report or news on Goldberg? I could see bigger name like him liking things as a threat to try and fleece more money out of WWE for another paycheck. 

     

    I don't feel they need a cavalcade of ~BIG~ names right away. Get enough neat looking flips and have good storylines and that could draw interest as being a fun alternative. The biggest thing is they will need higher production values. If something looks cheaper they'll be looked at as cheap. I want to 4K Hangman Page's beautiful face. 

     

    As for OWE talent, who should I check out to be excited for? I'm familiar with CIMA and saw the Rascalz in Minneapolis a weekend ago.

    I still don't understand what this whole tangent has to do with AEW.  Again, based on the content they have produced for themselves and other promotions, I don't see any reason to be concerned that they're going to go with the ol' Pure Sports Build for this promotion.  Cody just got an exorcism on BTE, for cryin' out loud.

    I feel like Thibs is just taking this as an opportunity to rant about one of his pet issues, which has been ongoing in the TNA threads for what feels like years now.

    Thibs is doing his best with Butler gone.

    These were the same Raw’s that we’re getting their asses handed to them by Nitro which was a much more compelling and exciting show, correct?

    Probably. I wasn't posting off of your series of quoted replies. So I'm not sure if this was a fired up sassy retwart or not.

  7. I just started rewatching old '96 Raw episodes on the WWE Network and they are delightful. 1 hour long (about 45 minutes if you subtract commercial time). You get a few matches, some banger video packages and an interview or two. Tune in neck week to see ~The Undertaker~. I wonder if a company like AEW could recreate the 1 hour type of show. That way they're not over exposing a potentially small roster. No need for overly long bits, but the few they have would stand out. Have it tight and well presented, you leave wanting more and never being bored or fading out.

    Those pictures were posted way earlier in the day.

    Owens deletes his tweets all the time. 

    Nope. First time.

     

    In other news: right after Raw, Cena posted the hashtag #loveyourself . I think they're going to tie this into a storyline.
