What is with this company and handicap matches? Has there, ever in the history of the company, been an entertaining one?

Just remembered Chris Jericho vs. Ricky Steamboat, Roddy Piper and Jimmy Snuka at WrestleMania XX. That has to be up there for Steamboat's amazing performance.

Charlotte needs to heat sell the living shit out of that Ronda Rousey / Ruby Riott title match so that people hate the WM match between her, Becky, and Ronda for the right reasons.....

I, however, would not shed a single tear if a certain hot goth worker Pele Kicked a certain former MMA star's head into the fifth row.

Strictly speaking the worst women in the EC match are Carmella, Tamina, & Mandy. Everyone else is either solid or has shown to be capable of having good matches in the past. Bayley and Sasha are starting off because they are the two most over women in the match, and no one else is likely to carry the crowd's attention as much.

I think Carmella has certainly graduated to solid. She might have been my pick for he most improved wrestler in the company by December.

Mandy isn’t amazing but MIGHT make my list to solid.

Tamina sucks though. At least Sonya might get a chance to go long.

Fucking YES. Got my wish and Kofi's in the EC. More than that, I really think he's going to wind up challenging for the title at WM and win it.

On paper, Bryan vs Woods seems like it could work with Bryan tearing down video game/pop culture obsession as distracting from the meaningful things of life or what not.

It's never going to be Bryan vs Xavier, it's going to be Bryan vs Kofi. There's no way Xavier or Big E are going to let them take away their buddy's opportunity.

They could do it on the "Road to" at least.

Yeah, I saw that yesterday. Made me sad for how overlooked she is. I hope she gets a run with the title at some point.

Add Braun vs Baron to the card.  So, there's your bathroom break.

I really hope that they do a spot where Big E and Xavier protect Kofi as he gets into the match

Man...Remember when Braun was white hot, like, holy shit this guy could lead the company white hot? They haven't completely Ryback'd him yet, but sheesh, he's en route to another WM where he has nothing to do because I consider working Baron worse than having nothing to do.

It's also funny to look back and see how high I was on Baron back in NXT and when he got moved to the main roster. Now I just want him off of my TV.

aw...

It’s pretty funny that they are using a misdirection angle, and don’t even realize they can have another misdirection to help out with putting over an undercarder with potential. Too much bad logic in the booking...

I honestly think it's smart to have Ruby beat Ronda (through a Charlotte distraction), then have Ronda take it back at Fastlane, and THEN do the three way at Mania (if that's indeed what they're building to).  

God only knows if that's what they intend.

We still might WWE seems to like to add more matches to the card in the days leading up to the PPV and sometimes a couple of hours before the preshow starts.

Too early to call Carmella or Mandy solid. Carmella is getting there. I just need a few more months of consistency. I think Mandy is further behind. Tamina should just superkick people and look mean. Those have always been her best attributes.

I think Carmella has her moments and works well in non-singles matches but Mandy is still a little early to tell. I was hoping her and Naomi would have a blow off match at EC so we could see what Mandy has in the tank but there's always Fastlane.

Agreed, loved her last match with Charlotte that headlined SDL in August and the triple threat with Charlotte/Becky last month.

I'll catch some hate for this but I still haven't seen anything out of either Billie or Peyton (Meltzer called them outright "bad" on WOR).  I understand that their matches on the main roster are supposed to 'suck' with how they play their characters but I don't remember any standouts down in NXT either.  

That said I realize both have been wrestling for a long time so if they have done something watchable feel free to point me to it.

Billie Kay became prominent via association with Madison Eagles, but retrospect says Eagles is one of the best female wrestlers of the century so we can probably attribute that to her.

Was never super fond of Kay, but I do recall her being better in Shimmer. She also seemed to get a decent push there despite never winning a belt. I think she has been fine in WWE, but nothing special.

I’m with you. The only time I thought either was delivering was when Peyton went solo in a 4-way for the NXT Women’s title. I keep waiting to be proven wrong.

So far their two big highlights on the Main Roster are when they debuted they beat down Charlotte that led to Carmella cashing in and this week when they smartly started the 3 way tag match tag out 20 seconds in then never tag back in so they couldn't be in danger of starting the Chamber match. They used that game plan then when Naomi/Carmella won they jumped them when they turned their backs on them and ending up posting both of them.

Well, I guess we can scratch the Usos and Naomi/Carmella....
