Re: BRM Reviews the 1/27/2020 Raw (TERRIBLE!)

The opportunity to do this passed already. If they were going to do this, you need Humberto to be at that high danger and intensity level the whole time from the time of his return to the moment he does it. You can't have him wrestle teo matches calmly (including a clean loss) and then snap on Andr...

Butterfly Effects In Wrestling

I read an interesting theory the other day along the lines of "WWE signing Karl Anderson resulted in AEW". A debatable "what if" scenario, but even if WWE just got Gallows, Anderson's standing in NJPW throws a big wrench in the rise of The Elite almost any way you look at it from an organic standpoi...

Re: NXT Talent Advised Not To Call Out RAW And SmackDown Stars After Incident Involving Brock Lesnar and Matt Riddle

there was a specific mention of not tweeting and calling out talents from Raw and Smackdown without their knowledge, which got a big laugh from the NXT talents in attendance. The fact that they laughed, in turn, made me laugh. Good. NO ONE should be shooting their own angles. I think there's room f...

Re: WWE Raw ratings don't get significant post-Royal Rumble bump

I'd blame the commentary, but they came out of the gate pretty soft. I figured the Edge return alone would be enough to bump things, on top of Casuals tuning in to see what happened at The Royal Rumble, that is surprising. Especially since I thought Raw was gaining some ground back, it's been a pret...

Re: Seth Rollins and Buddy Murphy win WWE Raw Tag Team titles

Part of me thinks Adam Cole is too good for them to ruin, he would just be the diamond in the pile of sh*t... But then I look at the track record and it makes me sweat a little. Don't ever say ANYONE is too good for Vince to ruin, as he will ask you politely to hold his beer... Adam Cole IS a diamo...

Re: 2 Cents: WWE Performance Center

It's not even close to 75% nostalgia I'm saying the highest rated shows of the year are The Reunion/Nostalgia shows. There are only so many spots to.be taken without cutting some other highly-talented person or personal favorite of Vince's loose. But there's still a big gaping hole that Cena left s...

Re: 2 Cents: WWE Performance Center

1. Why are you slighting the tag teams? A lot of NXT/FCW trainees have held tag team gold. Part of the reason for that is because that's where the openings have been. 2. Charlotte, Corbin, Carmella, Enzo, Nia Jax... oh, and technically Ronda Rousey- is certainly more than "Bliss and one other perso...

Re: Royal Rumble Predictions?

I can't believe Vince won't do either Lesnar vs Tyson or Lesnar vs Cain (and pretend the Saudi match never happened). I don't see Brock's WM match being against an active roster member. The real question being is if he retains until 'mania. Fury has a fight in February, if he wins my brain will brea...

Man... I remember when this used to be my favorite show of the year... I don't feel like there's been a whole lot of build to it this year beyond Becky/Asuke. It's kind of a blank slate this year, Brock is entering as the first champion to ever do so (if you don't count the time Hogan did it), fact ...

Re: 2 Cents: WWE Performance Center

The best analogy I can think of is like a school system. It's not really a primary school, where people go in with little to no idea of what's going on. I would argue it's not even really like a secondary school for a lot of people, reinforcing the concepts taught in primary school and tying them t...

In AOP's vignettes during their reintroduction they didn't care about titles, they just wanted to fight and offered their services to the highest bidder.
