That Cody Rhodes promo tonight. Amazing.
First time I've thought much of him since the Dashing Cody gimmick.
Such a good delivery style. It didn't feel like someone reciting off a mental check list of every bullet point they needed to get across. The inflections at different points even got their own little reactions. And it stood out as different to the WWE style as he responded to what had been said about him. He addressed the previous points and he made it seem like what the other guy said actually impacted him in some way.
There's so much dead weight and it's still delivering.
I wish they'd scrap the women's division until someone of note is ready to jump. That tag match was a clusterfuck. If you find JR going into business for himself annoying, surely Emi trying to work face for no reason just as bad.
I'd be pretty happy never to see the Dark Order again also. Indyriffic shit.
Also frustrating that they struck gold with Darby Allin and now he's seemingly disappeared
Is it weird I find Private Party reminiscent of the Steiners? Certainly not in terms of how hard hitting they are but they way they work their heat segments and the pacing are very similar.
That Jericho promo. I am dead.
Not sure if I'm in the camp of Tully being wasted on Spears or just wasted in general. He doesn't really do much. They rely on the older fanbase remembering him as a total piece of shit.
I can't see how there's not some drama about Dustin either being in the Match Beyond or needing to be subbed out. They love a good callback too much to not do a "seal the deal with a hug and a kiss" throwback. Page turning heel does make sense now that you mention it but whilst the motivations mentioned hold up, the execution is difficult without wandering into dueling authority figure promo time at the start of each show.
