  1. TBF I am pretty sure these would have taken place at the WWE 2k20 video game media thing as a number of interviews with these folks have come out recently from there, and Meltz was pictured talking to I believe Adam Cole at it.
  2. I would guess it has some sort of clause for the show to be sent down to one of Fox's cable networks after a year or so if the ratings are not at a certain level. WWE would probably want FX while Fox would like to put them on FS1 to bolster it, but after UFC apparently got blindsided by the launch of FS1 and being knocked off of FX I am pretty sure this would have come up during negotiations.
  3. Since the Cesaro thing is so blatant I would wager that A) he'll end up sent to NXT to help there, or B) they are gonna put The Bar back together once Sheamus is back (someone said he was doing something for the World Cup?) and hence are gonna not put Cesaro on tv for a month or so until then.
  4. So wait... Mike asked for his release but Maria did not? Like no offense to Mike but when they were on the indies she was kinda carrying the act.
  5. I mean, show criticisms are fair but AEW was also down 25+% from their big debut number as well. I think that's pretty much just the standard week 2 drop you are gonna see after a hyped wrestling show debut.
  6. They released a patch that was supposed to improve performance on the base PS4 model, but when I checked opinions on how much it made a difference were rather mixed.
  7. I mean yeah, but I didn't we know we were talking about the horrors of top contender Lacey Evans.
  8. I'll probably end up reading the Hickman X-men run once it is finished up as that is basically how I read all of Hickman's stuff, but I've read maybe a dozen issues of various X-men comics in my life. Is my lack of a background gonna be a problem, or do they do a decent job of getting people caught up on what's important early on?
  9. Gable/Corbin worked really well together, Gable elevated the in-ring bits while Corbin kept the crowd engaged. Rusev is so lean now. Maybe Cesaro should just not be given a mic.
  10. I went to check this (Meltzer naturally covered it) and: So while the number would have been down even if Austin was saved for later, it looks like there was a pretty significant drop-off. Also if one wants to go full conspiracy neither Monday Night Football game in week one of 2018 was particularly competitive while the early game this week at the very least had as good a finish as you will ever see... but I think that'd be a bit of a stretch.
  11. Also I may be missing something but I count about 7 Demon appearances since Balor made the main roster. That'd put it at about once every five or six months and while one can argue it should be a bit rarer than that, I don't think one can argue for overexposure cutting its legs off. I think it's not a bigger deal because aside from a slightly different entrance neither WWE nor Balor do much of anything to make it seem different from normal Balor.
  12. Austin also opened the show last night, so it's not like anyone who tuned in to see him had to stick around past the opening segment.
  13. Before Charlotte/after Charlotte you mean, right? After the Nia thing she could main event Mania, but she was already getting the best reactions in the company for a few months by that point.
  14. I think WWE will have a hard time convincing anyone that Bryan has any shot of besting Roman, FWIW. In that context... yes, Bryan losing to someone low card at this particular moment is probably not helping. Bryan's been very fallible for the last half year or so, if anything he needs a chance to show that he's still a threat. Now there is the larger argument that wins and losses don't actually matter much at this point, and if one wants to argue that then I'm not sure I can disagree. I still think it's a bad way to operate though.
