I'm not going to try to start a fight with rovert or anything over the plans obviously changing but I just want to say this is way funnier than Lio Rush being on 205 Live

If the Observer or PWInsider don't report that was was a change in plan I'll take the L. But I even got a DM this afternoon saying it was Lio.

I heard they told a suspected leaky faucet that it was Lio to make sure they had the right guy, even though it was murphy all along. and that said employee is "gone forever, big time, in more ways than one, nonspecifically" now

Lio hasn't wrestled since Lars squashed him. Feels like a Dream scenario.

Putting it in here ~just in case~, but Asuka is being advertised for RAW events in May. (Obviously subject to change, and not exactly 100% trusthworthy, but still interesting)

On Lio/205 Live the change tp Buddy Murphy was made last Thursday. It was Triple H's call after a coach told him Buddy would be a better fit as he's much closer to being cut that Lio is. A fish or cut bait situation if you remember that ESPN WWE NXT Behind the Curtain special. As I said in the past Buddy is seen as uncoachable and has a bad attitude. This is considered Buddy's last chance to impress.

Knowing WWE creative, Asuka will challenge Charlotte for the Smackdown title but stay on Raw, with Michael Cole hyping how this is the first time ever a woman from Raw fought a woman from Smackdown, and then Asuka will win the Smackdown title at Mania, but stay on Raw, and the angle will be "How can Asuka keep the Smackdown title when she's on Raw?!" because nothing matters.

Unless they unify the womenís titles once they merge the PPVs

Still very early, so I expect these odds to swing around, but here are a few markets apparently for Elimination Chamber. In the case of the EC matches, I only listed the top two people (or other odds that interest me).

Sports Dime Lines:

Asuka vs Nia Jax:

Asuka: -900
Nia Jax: +900

Women's Elimination Chamber:

Alexa Bliss: -120
Sasha Banks: +200

Men's Elimination Chamber:

Roman Reigns: -600
Everyone but Elias: +1900
Elias: +7000

Kambi only has odds up for the two ECs, and Alexa and Roman are both the favorites for those matches. -200 (edit: now -300) and -700 respectively.

They did republish several markets like who is leaving Wrestlemania as champ, however! There are no markets for the tag titles/IC titles at this time.

WWE Universal Champion:

Roman Reigns is at -1000.

WWE Championship:

Shinsuke Nakamura is at -400

RAW Women's Championship:

Nia Jax at -117 (for context, this shift happened because Asuka is presumed to be going to Smackdown. If she doesn't go, I'd expect the odds to shift back in her favor, but as of right now, both her and Alexa's odds are at +150)

Smackdown Women's Championship:

Asuka is at -200. (Assuming she jumps to Smackdown. Otherwise her odds will probably worsen, and Carmella is the second favorite at -150)

I'm all for unifying titles and ending the brand split but doing so this early into either run is the most modern WWE thing.

I think merging the women and tag titles would do wonders for those divisions and moving each to a separate show. I'd say Women on Raw and Tag on Smackdown. Keep a under title on each show and make it mean something, US on Smackdown and IC on Raw and unify the top title again, have it something for the top guys to chance after. The worse thing WWE has done in the last 5 years or so is make every single title meaningless. If you are going to make these giant cross band shows every month then you are going to have to make your titles mean something so the feuds that aren't for a championship have any reason for happening.

Isn't that what is happening right now? Unless you mean abolishing the brand split for the women. Also, do you have a link to this story?

STOP DOING HEROIN

The women don't need to be on one show or the other to feel important, just loving book them and push them on both shows like the other men. It's a gender, not a division, and the sooner WWE realizes that the better for everyone else.

Yeah, no change. I was responding to the guy above me suggesting putting the whole division on Raw.

I donít have a source, thatís just what people always say every time it comes up.
