Something Awful, so easy even a caveman can do it!

Losing pyro does not seem like a big deal (other than Kane). It really does not add anything to the entrance (other than Kane). Now that I think if it, my favorite entrances do not have pyro (other than Kane).

I think there should be a Kane exemption to this rule.

When do tv contract negotiations begin?

They've already been doing this since after Mania. I'm a pyro mark and this makes me sad to see that it's official. Bring back unique PPV sets then goddammit

I have two questions.

1. Are Sheasaro legit doing the fusion dance on purpose? I swear I heard them yell "FUS-" during an entrance while doing the finger point before the camera cut away.

2. Will Dean and Seth learn the true meaning of friendship? Possible from Bray Wyatt or the Miztourage?

Edit: actually one more. It feels like I've seen Big Show a lot this year, feuding with Braun then Cass. How active is he these days and could he go for another title run? He'd make a great tag team champ with Big Cass if the current breakup gets fixed and Enzo finally admits he can't wrestle, going in to the manager role like a tiny italian Titus.

I went to a Smackdown a few months ago, and they started a Kane match immediately after a commercial break.

So everyone's either looking at their phones or watching whatever video package or ad they were running while the TV was in commercials and then just BOOM.

i mean...i was doing a little research and one of the airbursts like they'd do for Batista is like $10

cutting pyro can't save more than a few thousand dollars per show

edit: they are cutting all the stuff that has gotten me to watch wrestling for the last 30 years. where's the spectacle? i turned on lucha underground for ten minutes the other day and saw more character development, storylines and world building than I have in the past 10 years in the WWE

The dumbest thing about 205 is that the obvious solution to getting crowds more into it is letting them have exciting cruiserweight matches that are different from the rest of the WWE.

Yeah but the goal of having most of the cruiserweight talents is so other promotions can't have them as opposed to actually wanting to get them over.

There's more character development in someone making 2 posts (one saying someone was good, and then another saying they changed their mind and said someone is bad) than there's been in the last 5 years of WWE
