  1. Becky was over all night long. Petty nit-picking the phony reality of WWE to stimulate your dopamine receptors aside, Becky driving the ambulance and then returning in said ambulance for a straightener was bad ass. All it was missing was Becky stitching herself up on the roadside. Raw's hit a bit of a hot streak recently. There's stories all over the show. The only thing I forwarded was the Mojo/Outlier/SP stuff, partly because I'm not a fan of any of them, but even that ended with forwarding some kind of story arc. I don't think Seth has the acting chops to pull off the Messiah, but I appreciate that he's giving it a shot. He needs to work on his cadence, and internalizing some bible passages wouldn't go amiss. Also hot crowd tonight! They popped for what they were supposed to. Maybe it's an indictment of how good Raw has been, or that the town is just super enthusiastic generally, but I enjoyed their interaction.
  2. You would think Jericho will be lobbying for a spot on the card.
  3. That tends to happen when one has an identity crisis. Getting a bunch of permanent tattoos gives people a sense of security. Anyway:
  4. EC3? They already signed a better version in Brian Cage. Still, can't be worse than Kip Sabian and Joey Janela stinking up the mid-card.
  5. There is more stock in The Fiend than Kevin Owens. Goldberg is disposable at this point. He's reached that point of his career where he should be doing jobs and he's only coming back for another 7 figure Saudi check. I'd book the typical Goldberg sprint. Goldberg passing out to Bray's mandible claw probably works best. The question is then can Bray deliver the archetypal Goldberg match? I don't rate him in the ring, but it shouldn't be too difficult. I love Goldberg, and selfishly I'd book him to win, but Bray should be winning the match.
  6. Riddle's still using The Jackhammer, which simply could be explained as Vince doesn't watch NXT or it hasn't been stooged off by anybody who relays the reports back to him. The whole thing is dumb, but hey people are talking.
  7. What should happen? Goldberg wins in 10 seconds and we get Goldberg/Reigns. What will happen? something like what you typed
  8. The spot sucked and dragged on too long. The payoff should be somewhat instantaneous, not jumping from table to table like an obstacle course. I wasn't a fan of it. I don't see why anyone should walk back anything. The spot sucked, not the performer doing it.
  9. Probably because she was third wheeling in that specific feud and was synthetically injected into the mix despite the match not needing her. Fans reacted accordingly.
  10. I agree with you that it could have been used to elevate someone else, and Shayna was all the rage with the live crowd. I do think plans were changed to accommodate Ronda into the scenario. And Charlotte winning sets the wheels in motion for the triple threat rematch (this is strictly guesswork on my part but the idea of Charlotte vs. Bayley or Becky is garbage and has been done to death). I'll take my L if those plans do not come to fruition, but that's how I see things playing out. Ronda/Charlotte/Becky on the Raw side, and Sasha/Bayley on the SD side. Niners Fan is happy. The board is happy. Everyone wins.
  11. The Claymore is such a dope impact move, the way Reigns fed in to it to end the match made it look spectacular. I also totally buy it knocking Brock out clean. One shot and done. I called Orton/Edge the moment Orton referred to Edge in that weird fake injury angle promo the other week. I'm also going to call Ronda/Charlotte/Becky II at Mania. It's the only way not having Shayna (beating Becky at Survivor Series you would assume the feud would naturally be a lock for Mania season) win the Rumble makes any sense.
  12. Jordynne Grace is very attractive..
  13. Meh. Doesn't matter if he's motivated. The visual of WALTER taking dozens of german suplexes is enough for me to veto such a match under WWE spotlights.
  14. I’d be down for that I guess but that would mean Taker having to commit to a retirement and judging his comments from his interview with Stone Cold on the network, he’s only going to retire when he’s good and ready, rather than being told to. And let’s face it who is going to tell him? It’s sad but as long as the money is still there, Taker’s not hanging them up anytime soon. Pretty sure Roman gets the nod, and it would be the right call. No-one has the kinda Daniel Bryan 2014 energy that would require a natural pivot to.
  15. Oh this card looks good. Only thing that’s missing is a big hoss match. Lee vs Mastiff would round things out nicely.
  16. Keith bulldozing one of the UE guys over a hedge had me howling. ZACK FN GIBSON. Delighted for the GYV. Real chance they could win it. Two very good pro wrestling shows last night.
  17. Call me an asshole but David Benoit should stay a million miles away from the pro wrestling business. Listening to the first few minutes, he seems to have a good gig already on the oil fields. Make your money kid and go start a family.
  18. Too many cooks in the kitchen. It was always going to happen. Too much creative liberty creates overlaps and with no trade-offs, we get shit like the Dark Order and Brandi Rhodes' American Horror Story cult in back-to-back segments. Who is the authority here? They have Arn and Malenko directing the shows, they need to speak up. Don't get me wrong there's plenty of good, but the bad really sticks out like a sore thumb. I'd kill for whoever books NXT to book AEW talent filmed in AEW arenas. Also I'm over the tag team matches, time for some real showcasing.
  19. @gordi they could easily just run the 3rd if they wanted to take advantage of the weekend next year. With the onus being on the more traditional 4th rather than the 5th. I hope not. But seeing the numbers this weekend it may be worth pursuing.
  20. My man your catty stance on Becky has reared it's head in several threads. Calling her a ''inferior'' worker and name-dropping her here. At least Becky's coronation wasn't squandered with a garbage angle to end the biggest show of the year. I clearly have you caught in a web with my observation. But anyway, do you fam!
  21. The odd cross-promotional match is fine (which they kinda are doing unofficially anyway) but I think AEW need at least a year to flesh things out and establish their own identity before baking NJPW into the pie. Once Ospreay is making strides at heavyweight I can't think of a more marquee match-up than Omega/Ospreay.
  22. Maybe they ran the angle at the end because they have something AEW related in the cannon for New Year's Dash that's going to steal the headlines? I know Jericho won, but I doubt they would dangle the bait so blatantly only to take it away without more prolonged plans between them. Having an outsider brandishing a foreign companies belt, win, and then go away again is the kinda shit that would create conflict. There has to be something else. Maybe Tony Khan hits Gedo with a stunner or something
