Plus indie fans are totally different than the casual WWE fans. Lots of acts that work on the indies wouldn't work in front of 15K people on RAW.

I was just talking about the crowds going nuts prior to him having a match or cutting a promo. As he steps through the curtain.

Pro Wrestling Sheet has learned Colby Corino — who is set to begin training at the NJPW dojo next month — was arrested Saturday night in Tennessee for possession of a controlled substance.

According to the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office, Corino was taken into custody around 12:45 am for possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and a few counts that are classified as “drugs general category for resale.”
An officer at the station didn’t have access to the arrest report, but explained the last charge generally means the person is suspected of selling drugs due to the amount found and other various reasons.
Colby announced last month that he would be leaving for New Japan in January.
Corino is due in court next week and is being held on a $40K bond.

The last time I saw little Colby he was around 10, screwing around in the ring with his dad. It was cute. Now seeing him...it's like Steve Corino and C.M. Punk had a love child.

Id assume its the age old "wwe tv star" phenomenon.  For 25 years, smarks deride the wwf, whether in ecw, tna, roh, but when one of the former wwf talents show up, they mark out like little kids. 

Plus, "son of dusty" factor. 

My favourite ever example of this - Sid showing up in ECW

Maybe he'll get a spot in the Performance Center because that NJPW thing might not be happening.  I can't see Japan letting him into the country for at least a little while now.

So with Bray finally getting a title - I started thinking of who is next in the "Longest with company without a title"

Quick Pass Through The Roster

Quote

NEVER
Big Cass
Enzo
Braun Strowman
Jinder Mahal
Karl Anderson
Luke Gallows
Dana Brooke
Emma
Nia Jax
Summer Rae
Tamina
Apollo Crews
James Ellsworth
Mojo Rowley
Carmella
Eva Marie

AT LEAST IN NXT
Bo Dallas
Neville
Sami Zayn
Sin Cara
Bayley
Aiden English
Simon Gotch
Jason Jordan
Chad Gable
Konnor
Viktor
Erick Rowan

AT LEAST IN FCW
Fandango
Tyler Breeze
Naomi

THIS IS SORTA A TITLE
Baron Corbin (Andre The Giant Battle Royal Winner)
 

If you count whole career - Gallows and Konnor were each first signed in 2005 but both left and came back

If you count continuous service and DON'T count development titles: Fandango (as Johnny Curtis) signed in 2006

If you count continuous service and time on Main Roster: Tamina who started on Main Roster in 2010

Other notes:

In the never category: Jinder Mahal first signed in 2010 but obviously left for awhile. Emma, Big Cass and Summer Rae are next as they were all signed in 2011

In the titles in development category: Sin Cara was signed late 2009/early 2010. He was on the main roster in 2011 but went back down where he won his one title. Tyler Breeze and Naomi have been signed since 2010 and Naomi made her main roster debut in 2012.

Bo Dallas is somewhat like Sin Cara. Signed in 2008, had a cup of coffee on the main roster in 2013, went back down won his titles and then came back up (in 2014)

How did people feel about MNM wearing the tag belts the way they did?

Thank you!  I was reading all those posts about how Reigns wears his belt thinking, "who was it that wore the belts over their cocks?"

While technically not on the active roster, you forgot Rosa Mendes who has been with the WWE since 2006.

I blame that on Wiki then since I just went through their rosters - I guess to them being on maternity leave doesn't merit inclusion like injuries do

She would also fall in the AT LEAST IN FCW category

Even with those, it'd still likely go to the "main roster counts only (no FCW/NXT, and only time since their promotion to the main roster counts" levels.

Fandango may or may not count- if Baron Corbin winning the Andre Battle Royal counts as "kind of a title", then  Johnny Curtis being the NXT Season 4 winner also counts under that same level. 

If that's the case, then the order would fall in order to:

Tamina (2009 debut)

Naomi (NXT Season 3, 2010)

Konnor (NXT Season 4, 2010)

Sin Cara (2011 debut)

Bo Dallas (2013 debut)

Summer Rae

Erick Rowan 

Eva Marie 

Emma (2014 debut)

Viktor (2015 debut)

Neville

Sami Zayn

Braun Strowman

Tyler Breeze

Apollo Crews (2016 debut)

Enzo Amore

Big Cass

Aiden English

Simon Gotch

Luke Gallows (2016 redebut)

Karl Anderson

Dana Brooke

Jason Jordan

Chad Gable

Nia Jax

Mojo Rawley

Carmella

Bayley

James Ellsworth

Jinder Mahal (2016 redebut)

Apparently a massive glitch at YouTube temporarily terminated the Bellas personal channel.  This was due to "multiple or severe violations of YouTube's policy against spam, deceptive practices, and misleading content or other Terms of Service violations."

Twin magic, indeed.

Hopefully they still do the women's title match in the chamber.

Most of us are struggling to determine who can credibly challenge AJ for the belt next and SmackDown is going run a PPV with a chamber match?

I look forward to that brand continuing to surpass my abysmal expectations!

Didn't they fire her for being fat? Or screwing Batista? Or some other wackiness unrelated to her in ring abilities?

Do WWE Championship, SDL Womens, SDL Tag Chambers. 

Tag: Wyatts vs AA vs Usos vs Hype Bros vs Vaudevillans vs Ascention

Women: Bliss vs Lynch vs Natayla  vs Carmella vs Naomi vs an NXT call up

WWE Championship: AJ vs Ambrose vs Cena vs Ziggler vs Corbin vs Zayn

Then fill out the rest of the show with 

IC Title: Miz vs Joe

Have Mickie James be the one who jumped Niki and run James vs Nikki

Start panting the seeds of descent in Beauty and the Man Beast now have Rhyno eliminate Heath in the Rumble and do Slater vs Rhyno at EC

Do an opening 6-Man of Crews, Kane and Kalisto vds Brezango and a heel Swagger

And have Hawkins vs Ellsworth on the Kickoff Show

You're welcome WWE.

3 chamber matches is way too much for me. Even two is stretching it but if they do two. 

Alexa, Becky, Naomi, Natalya, Nikki and Carmella. 

Styles, Ambrose, Ellsworth, Corbin, Ziggler and Kalisto.

The Wyatts vs. Usos vs. American Alpha

The Miz vs. Sami Zayn

Luke Harper vs. Kane because the universe needs this.

Well dammit, I'm planning on going to Fastlane, and was very excited about it because all the rumors said it was going to be a Smackdown show.  Not nearly as excited now that it's going to be Raw.

Is she bringing Magnus? Or is his Jarrett contract that lucrative? You'd think Joe or EY would have put a word in by now.
