I know a lot of people hated it but I loved Sheamus when he was Irish John Cena on Smackdown in 2011. Like, everything involving Sheamus, Mark Henry, Orton and Christian that year was dope as gently caress.

Didn't they cut the costs to shuttle the crew from town to town on a bus, so they made them all start paying for their transportation?

You'd think that they would cut Pyro before that...

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
i havent watched any lucha underground yet (its in my netflix queue though) but i agree. there are better places for in-ring quality but wwe is supposed to be the dominant force in over-the-top spectacle, and they're killing that bit by bit


and i like pyro, at the very least every champion should have pyro!

There's a couple entrances like AJ and Brock that feel so much lamer without pyro.

Like, Brock does his double fist pump thing on the ramp and no pyro goes off and.....well that was lame.

When they used to have it in the games, I'd edit Batista's entrance just enough so his pyro would be mistimed. I wanted it to be realistic man.

Goldust loving rules. His spine buster (aka the DUST BUSTER) is the best in the business (second best of all time after arn), the curtain call is awesome, and shattered dreams is the greatest finisher ever (looks devastating in kayfabe, looks devastating IRL, and just in case that's not enough it's an illegal move which makes it more bad rear end)

Going to next week's RAW and we're looking to make some signs. Who all do yall think is going to be there. I'm pretty certain about Roman Reigns, Samoa Joe, Finn Balor, The Miz, Dean Ambrose, Alexa Bliss, and maybe Bayley, but I haven't been keeping very good track of where stories are developing and I don't really know a good resource for guessing a card before it happens other than you guys.
