I assume it was to kill time because half the roster was on an international tour, but I'd be happy if they stuck around.

weird how wwe tolerates bleeding hardway but blading is not allowed

Plausible deniability. TV stations and advertisers don't want blood. If someone blades it'd be near-impossible for WWE to prove they didn't order it/know ahead of time; if someone bleeds 'accidentally' they're all good.

Anybody remotely interesting is mad in some way or another.


Smackdown results added to the OP.

The Vince/Owens segment felt oddly detached considered what happened in it, but I dug it - Owens carefully wording his permission to put a beating on "a McMahon" was a neat,"Oh gently caress he's gonna kill him" moment.

When the drug test comes back positive for performance enhancing drugs.

Owens beating up Vince had to be one of the greatest moments in Kevin's career. I'm really happy for him.

That being said, it's a shame that Vince is probably too old to take a power bomb to the apron. That would've been sick.

How is Vince so good about taking a beating to advance a story but Steph can never look the slightest bit vulnerable. She takes a bump off the apron once a year and only at Wrestlemania.

It would make her kids cry. Remember, she's just *playing* a bad guy on TV! She's not really bad!! She's a cool mom who loves everyone and is a philanthropist, and not just because it's the future of marketing!

And Vince, for all his failings, doesn't give a gently caress and is willing to look like a chump if it helps someone else. He's taken beatings from the Shield, Nexus, and Punk in recent years all to help get them over as big deals.

Also the dramatic impact of KO beating Vince was deflated by Stephanie´s resting bitch face when she came out.

Shane happily trots his kids out to dance with him and sit front row before he's about to plummet 16 feet through an announcer's table.

It's all very well doing it once and then being off TV for 6 months, as opposed to taking a beating 4 days a week, every week without any kind of a break

I agree with this sentiment in general RE: Part-timers and one-offs vs. 300+ matches a year... but a 72-year-old man just took a headbutt to the skull that busted him hardway, and then let a big fat boy jump on him. When Shane used to take stupid bumps so he could look cool, and then take plenty of time off to rest and recuperate, it was lame. This was an ancient man, NOT looking cool or badass, putting his elderly rear end at risk to build someone else up.

This had to have been the most pants making GBS threads night in kevin owens' career. I don't know how I'd respond if my boss asked me to do that... assuming I still wanted my job afterwards anyway.

Part of me wishes KO would just buzz off that terrible 12 year-old bully haircut, he'd come off as way more threatening. Although I do see how it works for his character to a degree

I'd imagine as long as Vince is aware you're going to be hitting him, he doesn't give a gently caress how hard you do it.

I finally caught the Usos/New Day match from Smackdown and it was awesome. I really hope they do the rematch inside the cell, it's the one feud they've got going which feels like it deserves it.
