Kofi/Bryan is honestly better than Becky/Rousey/Charlotte now IMO. I loved the program up until a month or so ago but it's gotten really boring and rousey is just so bad at everything.

That's because it's fundamentally the same program (face organically gets over out of nowhere, world tries to stomp them down for not being the chosen one) but happening over a far shorter time frame, giving WWE fewer opportunities to ruin it.

King of the Pirates?


Just finished RBR and they had a better idea for Mania. The live crowd gets super exhausted already by the middle of the show because you're putting a ton of people in a stadium for hours at a time, just put Kofi/Bryan in the middle of the card where Ronda+Angle/Triple H+Stephanie was and the crowd can be super hot for it, probably a bigger reaction if Kofi wins because they'll have more energy and not have to have sit through Brock/Seth and Triple H/Batista matches that might be slogs, have the Women's 3-way as the main to be the show closer and still have two really great defining moments where the fans are full of energy for both moments

especially when Brock beats Rollins

It's also why the final build to WM 30 is so good, a combination of them having to course correct so close to the show that they only really had time to actually tell the story, and not overcomplicate it, plus it was Triple H's angle that year, so he made sure it didn't get too over-produced (say what you will about Hunter's matches, he usually does a decent job keeping the build simple for his poo poo)

Go into Smackdown expecting Charlotte to win the Smackdown title to make the Wrestlemania main event match bigger.

There's a lot of unhappiness backstage at the moment someone referred to it as a toxic environment.

It's the main event of Wrestlemania, it's probably the best built match on the show, a) why does it need to be made bigger than that? And b) considering how WWE books its titles does adding another belt actually even make it bigger?

WWE loves loving over foreigners. I am sure the way they have treated Asuka will resinate with all the other Joshi women. I am pretty sure with the way they have treated all the luchadores that they will have lost a generation out of Mexico if not longer. I imagine they will lose a generation of Japanese women too. They better not gently caress up KUSHIDA.

This is a huge opportunity for AEW as well, if they treat all their foreign talent well it will become the destination.

Kushida needs to carry a sign around that says "I have a better MMA record than Brock Lesnar" until vince notices and takes him at least somewhat seriously

Edit: or has Brock beat him senseless which is what would actually happen

It's WWE so that could change literally any time, but that would make me think Lesnar is retaining because I don't see Drew beating Roman or Drew losing to Roman and then getting a title shot.

You're kidding right? They've run NO AUTOMATIC REMATCH CLAUSES into the ground, they're not going to run Roman/Seth for the title, Drew is by far the best heel challenger available, and you could easily have Roman/Drew rematch for #1 contender, Corbin costs Roman, Drew wins, both matches set up.
