Yeah, the less said about this Shayna vs. The Doll thing, the better. 

Now, MVP doing his best Claudius by dropping little bits of poison in Kofi's ear...

Yes, this is interesting.

This is what happens when a wrestling promotion no longer has to worry about drawing money and only has to produce content and cash checks.

I watched the women's tag match.  I dug it but they should have booked it so that Rhea and Charlotte had to win because why would they work together at all?  Lazy booking but good work by the participants.  Nikki Cross is so awesome.  Her and Asuka dancing on a table is what we need in this day and age.

I know WWE have something of a captive audience and all, even with the ratings in the toilet, but they're seriously booking for themselves now. But I guess they always do. I came for Drew Gulak, but WWE tells me he's boring and a loser. BUT HE'S A SUBMISSION SPECIALIST GUYS. One that never wins no matter what, but definitely special. But WWE tells me I still don't want Gulak. No, WWE assures me that what I REALLY want is the ugliest doll (in the worst meaning of that) I've ever seen dropping the set on a fearsome wrestler who is now afraid of it. Apparently I watch the THREE HOUR show not for a great wrestler, but for the hokiest horror crap possible written by a hack wannabe masturbating freely to an audience of one. When I was THIRTEEN I wrote better crap than this by far. 😞

This is sub WCW Russo, people. This is sub Katie Vick. At least those all had real possible feuding opponents. Now Shayna is feuding with a STUPID DOLL. How is she supposed to fight with or interact with that? And even more ridiculously, poor Alexa is somehow arguably in a worse position now than when she was with Wyatt, even though everything he touches turns to shit. Because now she's second fiddle to a doll. I was glad at first when she broke away from Bray but I guess they tricked me again. Oh well.

And I love how they still show Alexa appearing on all the audience screens as if it's supposed to be scary. But then they remind us on the same show that Bayley also just did it on Smackdown and it was actually somehow scarier then.

Can't wait to see how Shayna battles the doll at Hell in a Cell. I guess the lights go out, then come back on, and Shayna is crushed under some object in the ring. But only after five minutes of the weakest fake BOOGEY BOOGEY BOOGEY. Dreading it already. SEND GULAK TO NXT. I want to see him battle Thatcher there.

Seriously, watching buddy, why must we always watch this but never AEW? Is it because some AEW wrestlers said "mean things" about WWE? And because AEW are too "full of themselves" somehow? 😞

Great Nikki/Asuka and Rhea/Charlotte stuff, though. Maybe they WILL actually do something with Nikki.

I assume they'd just make it Alexa. I suppose you could hire Micro Man and just put him in a costume if you want to be weird.

No, I want it to be someone who hasn't been on TV and is willing to sacrifice the rest of their career for this one storyline.  Or someone who hasn't been on TV in years like Misty Blue Simmes.

My money is on Shayna getting possessed by the doll and wrecking people for a few months. She just has an evil doll demeanor.

Like she needs to be possessed to be wrecking people! Damn, that might actually be pretty bad-ass!

I'd freed myself from this abomination some weeks back, but with the Braves and Hawks both off I figured I'd tune in. 

Imagine being Bray Wyatt and inventing this super innovative, fantastic character with loads of lore and layers of backstory. Then imagine as an out of touch old man slowly trimmed away everything cool about the gimmick, then gave it to a tiny blonde girl (who, to her credit, is giving it everything she has. For whatever is wrong with the Lilly stuff, it isn't Alexa Bliss.) and then kept you off tv for months. Ugh.

I hate to let facts get in the way of a good narrative, but Bray's been gone because he asked for the time off. It's been reported he's having a real tough time with Jon Huber's death and needed time away.  To their credit, WWE let him take as much time as he needed.

Shayna needs Lilly like Bob Backlund needed Papa Shango

He tweeted something about not believing everything you read right after that came out. If it's true, then I take it back....

The most enjoyment I got out of the final segment was when the stuff was falling at Shayna, I said "Is it Erick Rowan?" That drew a laugh from my wrestling-watching-buddy who remembered that story from happier times. But then I realized I wanted Rowan back. Just not doing spooky stuff with a doll. Giant tarantula toy > ugly doll every time.

I also pondered how Alexa eventually escapes from this mess of a gimmick without getting released, assuming they don't try to run it forever. (Probably more likely Shayna gets released from this, though...) Does someone discover Lily is truly the evil force controlling Alexa and so they exorcise the demon within it, freeing her? (Maybe shouldn't have released Aleister Black then, but I guess Mansoor or Jackson Ryker can do it too) Or do they do an "I want my country back" and that's that?
