I'm just saying that both teams were really loving good and the feud was great, but I'm glad they ended it with the uso's winning to shake things up.

If you want some spicier takes, I've been down for Corbin since MitB which is about when I got into wrestling and when everyone still hated him, and I enjoy his character more than AJ's. He deserves a good title run and I'm really glad they finally stopped the dumb punishment booking.

I'm hoping the end goal is Corbin US champ AJ Styles WWE champ. I've been watching for most of my life and AJ has been one of the best in the world for over a decade and half but if you just got into wrestling I can see why you'd like Corbin's character more since after Wrestlemania AJ's character has been "face who is the best at wrestling" which I personally enjoy since he backs it up

But I can't hate Corbin too much. The punishment booking was for hating the concussion doctor they have who was literally the villain from that movie about the NFL hiding concussion research.

When Erick Rowan showed up as one of the final members of team Cena in the lead up to Survivor series 2014 I actually broke a chair with my extreme vibrating bounce rear end from all the marking out. He is the only wrestler that I have ruined furniture for out of love, and I've been watching since '91.

Erick Rowan is good, folks. I'm glad he and Harper are Sledge Siblings.

Sami gave a nice speech but the crowd kinda didn't give a poo poo. "Shane didn't want me to have an opportunity" "NOBODY DOES"

I think they've got a bigger uphill climb to making people care about Sami again than just turning him heel.

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

I'm totally down with this Sami heel turn since his heel gimmick is "I love my best friend and want to hang out with him, and maybe get a push for once".

I'm also totally down for the swerve when Sami is the one who turns on Kevin for once and kicks his face in when he least expects it.

To be fair to Sami that crowd was Grand Rapids, Michigan. That's a bored parents and their children market. Might as well have been Corpus Christi, TX.

Who could blame him? He's one of the most crisp wrestlers in the world and in the last couple months

He lost his title to Tozawa because Vince showed up one day and on a whim decided he wanted a title change
He lost his title again on a whim to Enzo who had a very, very short run.

His ceiling would be 205 Live and the title is just getting traded around now with no rhyme or reason. He could go to Japan and start making that Young Bucks money for being one of the best wrestlers in the world.

Why is WWE such a pit of abject sadness and failure?

RealFoxy posted:

I don't think it will because despite Bray looking like a buffoon constantly on TV, he's always sold as being legitimate and I doubt that Balor would be the one to start cracking jokes

That's almost a problem now - they always try to sell him seriously, but he just constantly is doing stupid poo poo. Makes his opponents look bad as well. The House of Horrors was bad for both Randy and Bray.

VJeff posted:

"Hey, hey. Breezango's cool."

"Alright, I like Fashion Files too."

I love these teams.

And y'know, Sami made some good points and he did well with the material because he's a great performer, but I can really, really, really do without the "Being a good guy is loving stupid, thanks for beating me into opening my eyes, Kevin!" stuff. I'm like 99% sure all those good points he made are getting shot down by a McMahon immediately, too.

But it's kinda Kayfabe true - Sami is Kevin's equal, but hasn't had his success. One of the biggest differences? Kevin cheats, is ruthless, and doesn't wait for poo poo to happen he makes poo poo happen.

Sotar posted:

Didn't they play it as this huge victory for Zayn, then *tumbleweeds* for Zayn?

Oh yeah. Owens won the Universal title in like a month or two, and then Zayn became the designated man to lose clean to KO so he had some credibility before retaining via Jericho shenanigans every PPV.

I think the Bludgeon Bros is good dumb fun and I'm happy it gets them on TV, but Rowan doesn't need to keep his Wyatt family steampunk sheep mask. With those robes and hammers it's kind of a "hat on a hat"

So I was told Neville was unhappy for a while and WWE told him if he got his heel character over he'd get a heavyweight push on Raw. He obviously did and then WWE dragged their feet in honouring their promise.

Wanting him to job to Enzo again to set up Kalisto vs Enzo at the PPV was seemingly the final straw.

Just let Neville take the belt off Jinder and he can drop it to AJ sometime next year in a burn the house down match.

Not using the cruiserweights outside of their own division will always feel like a waste to me. Not only because of Neville but because they have too many guys signed to have time to use them all on 205 Live(true of the roster in general). When Tozawa isn't feuding for the title he should be tagging with Apollo on Raw. Let Mustafa Ali challenge for the US title on a random Smackdown. If Curt Hawkins is going to job let Gran Metallik beat him. WWE needs fresh faces/matchups and the talent brought in via the CWC gives them that chance.
