SDL is a Saudi Surprise! - 11/1/2019

Recommended Posts

Okay. I thought it was just another example of WWE Superstars "Be(ing) A Star".

extra fantasy booking thought: there shouldn't be a successful invasion of Full Sail next Wednesday. Full Sail should be NXT's fort, where the first and second attempts to invade are repelled by the numbers advantage held by the NXT guys. Then the NXT before Survivor Series, there should be a successful invasion and brawl. Let it simmer a little before falling back into 50/50 booking

I thought that was coming up. Wasn't it your birthdays? If so, happy returns.

Yes, Thank you! It's on the 15th, so I got nice tickets 18 rows up, center ring, facing the camera. I wore my costume #cowboyshit and it was a good show despite card subject to change.  

Daniel Bryan really is the best, it was like when I saw Peyton Manning play against the Bills, just streets ahead.

My birthday is on the 15th too. And Randy Savage’s. We’re in good company.

Glad you had a good time. Daniel Bryan is indeed the best. Love Bryan. I attended my first wrestling show in April 2015 and Daniel Bryan wrestled, will never forget that date. Two days later he was pulled off the tour and had to retire in February 2016 until he was cleared to return in March 2018.

How can you "quit" your brand as champion and then sign with the other brand and not have to relinquish the title?

Same reason that a Rollins/Fiend match could take place despite them being on different shows. The HW titles aren't actually tied to brands.

I wasn't paying real close attention, but was there a reason Riddle and Lee beat up Sami, besides him just being a heel? 

He never gave them their shirts!

I mean the Universal title was literally created for Raw and even has the Raw colors.

Knowing well in advance that SD would be short handed, why TF would they have not flown the NXT talent into Buffalo earlier...?

I think they were thinking that separate flight that had all the guys specifically set for SDL was going to make it in time. It wasn’t until that flight was delayed that they knew they were really fucked

Ratings for this feel like it's going to be a big deal. If it's a bomb, things calcify even more. If it holds steady, what sort of message does that send about star power relative to everything else? If it's a hit, do they take the message that it's because of all the NXT talent (they shouldn't given the Wednesday night ratings), or that the promise of a staid, twenty year format being broken for maybe the second time (first being the snowstorm/Reigns interview) is actually a draw and it's the entire structure of the show that's the issue. It's about what Fox thinks.

By this logic, during NFL games Fox should never want AFC teams on its Sunday games because their contract is to show NFC games. 

("Actually..."  yes I know... shut up)

My point is it's all the same company, you want to maximize the audience for the company's product so when... say Matt Riddle... gets sent to Smackdown to face Roman Reigns, people can say, oh hey, that's the "bro" guy... yeah, he's cool, imma watch. 

 

This, plus despite what they say, it’s still essentially a feeder system for Raw/Smackdown. So why wouldn’t they want their future prospects shown off?

You don't want to fuck with TEAM KICK.  Even if you are an announcer

Also Pat McAfee as the voice of NXT on the main roster is going to hard to swallow although I guess it is better Mauro

Not that I agree with that initial statement, but if I did, an NXT guy having a good match with Daniel fucking Bryan wouldn't exactly be a mind-changer...

She pulled a Jannetty, and tried to run away by escaping through the announce table.

Because those 'future prospects' are on Wednesday nights on USA, further saturating the market and putting on a better show.


But let me turn the question around - why would they?

I had to tell my brother, " that's shayna baszler, she is awesome" "that's Keith Lee, he's awesome" '"that's Bianca belair, all American track and field superstar, she's awesome" but it seemed much of the mostly full Key Bank Center knew who everyone was. 

It was reported the nxt charter from Orlando landed at 7:55 and was police escorted to the arena.

They literally ran an ad for the FS1 smackdown during the World Series with neither commentator actually mentioning the Smackdown ad on screen. So you could say that they did not exactly go all-out to get eyes on FS1 last week
