WWE is real bad. Indy [Wrestling] is real good.

    Debuting a talent with a loss has been and will always be fuckin stupid.

    There are edge cases where it works(Sami debuting in the US open challenge for example) but it almost always kills any possible momentum right out the gate.

    Like...I know as much as it sucks probably from a pay-cut perspective, I hope Rusev has some awesome matches in NXT and reminds people how absolutely awesome he is.

    They railroaded themselves into a corner here as they've only got two shows to set up what is essentially a throw away PPV where nothing really matters and no titles are defended. It really should have had qualifying matches and undoubtedly Rusev should have been a part of the team.

    Also both Miz and Bryan putting Shane on the team is insane reality warping and continues to stop anyone not at the top getting over. Same with Mysterio. I do like Miz and Bryan slowly falling in love though.

    I feel like I should just not bother with WWE for a while after hearing that. Sheesh.

    I will say they handled the Nikki debut pretty much perfectly. The Sanity intro, they managed to get the fog right for her to come out of, and yeah she lost, but she got a competitive match against the champ who is going into a match with Ronda Rousey, and Nikki can take losses because her character is literally just someone who wants to fight and fight and fight. The only misstep was having her submit. I get the storytelling because they need to show the Disarmher is a threat, but Nikki Cross should not be submitting, they should have had her either pass out or have Becky use her finisher first and then apply the Disarmher on an unconscious Nikki so the ref calls it.

    Man. I had thought that swearing off WWE would get more difficult as time went on, because match quality has been consistently getting better, and my anger would abate as Greatest Royal Rumble ended up in the rearview mirror.

    NOPE

    The only thing I have even a twinge of regret about is not being able to see Becky get her well-earned run at the top.

    Yeah, I can't find the tweet but someone asked her about getting a non-submission finisher, and she said she has one and used it against one of the Bellas this year.

    I know we're all talking about Nikki, but goddamn that promo Becky cut last night was the good shit. It was also tweener as hell, which is making me hope that finally the backstage actually gets what they have with Becky Lynch.

    They've pretty obviously stopped trying to fight against people cheering Becky. Even the bit last night where Miz gets aggravated that no one wants to talk to him about his dumb movie and instead want to talk to Lynch makes me feel like they get what they have in her.

    Becky/Ronda should main event Survivor Series.

    LU Ultima Lucha finale was

    a lot
    They introduced Vampiro's master, dude with a mask similar to Pentagon's, and they beat up Pentagon after his match
    Jack Swagger cashed in and is now LU Champion
    Taya got possessed by Ricky's creepy doll god
    Dragon Azteca and Black Lotus use the Gauntlet of the Gods to kill Matanza via Fatality, only for Swagger to come in, wreck Azteca and steal the Gauntlet
    Cueto, the FBI Agent, and Vampiro's master are in the Limo; Swagger comes back with the Gauntlet and we find out the leader of the Order is Wade Barrett

    All of the Gods have now taken human form
    Aerostar takes the completed Immortality Pendant, places it on the corpse of Antonio Cueto and brings him back to life

    So, I'm seeing some speculation on why they gave Brock the belt instead of Braun.

    One is that he might be working injured, while another suggests that a perpetual lack of locker room etiquette has been continuously leading to management cooling off on him shy of pulling the trigger.

    I hate to say it, but I kind of hope it's the first -- seems less problematic.

    This is the worst available option of the 3 for WWE fans btw, because Brock/Cormier still has no date and that seems like the type of thing you definitely provide for a fight by now if it's supposed to be happening in January, so if that's The Purpose of him getting it back, he's holding it past the Rumble at least

    They schedule the fight right after Mania. Brock isn't willing to risk getting injured for rassling. So the prestigious Universal Title(that was created 2 years ago) goes undefended at Mania.

    Multiple sites are reporting that the Raw overrun is dead as of this Monday. Thank goodness, that thing should have been history once Nitro died.

    It was effective for USA in goosing the numbers for whatever followed Raw, though. I’m honestly surprised USA would give up on that.

    I would absolutely love for Brock to have the belt for his UFC fight and just get absolutely clowned.

    It's what everyone involved deserves.

    I'm fine with RAW ending at a less predictable time but it was getting ridiculous with commercial breaks ten minutes after the show was supposed to end.
