It's actually the number of ideas each cruiserweight has to get themselves over that the agents rejected because it wouldn't have worked in Memphis in 1972.

Butt first, let's

I'm confused by this Asuka thing. Is it a #1 Contender's match or did they really just run a storyline where a bunch of women competed to be the first person to get murdered?

They ran a match just to determine who would get murdered. I imagine if Alexa Bliss retains against Mickie (which is really likely), Asuka will be her next challenger, since Alexa has beaten everyone else, and buried them all in the process (on the mic that is).

I think storyline wise, the reason they held the 5 way match was because defeating Asuka would make history, and pretty much guarantee them a title match. I think the only way I could see Asuka losing in her debut was to gently caress with people who think this is a squash (and it should be). It's up WWE's alley however, so I have a very small bit of doubt in my mind for this.

emma is going to control at least 75% of the match and then when it looks like she's about to pin asuka, emma walks to the back for the countout DQ

Asuka wins by DQ when Alexa runs in to attack her because of some backstage interaction they had before the match.

That would be dumb, so its right up WWE's alley.

To be serious though, I think if Asuka does beat Emma, she'll have to go through Nia Jax, as Alexa will probably try and duck her constantly.

Asuka being Asuka seems difficult to gently caress up but I'm no doubting it will happen, just that it's less likely to happen than them loving up Bayley. All they need to do is give Asuka 6 min to kill someone every week. With Bayley they had to thread the needle by creating a woman character for children in a fed where ten years ago she'd be expected to wrestle in some form of edible gloop for Vince McMahon's pleasure, went too far in the opposite direction and made her a sexless virgin for life that's never even kissed a boy.

Being a seventh loving hour of WWE added to the weekly schedule also does it no favors. Especially when the in-ring product is indistinguishable from the other six.

Honestly I'd be kinda happy if Raw dropped down to 2 hours instead of 3, not because I don't like it, just that it's kinda exhausting watching 3 hours of wrestling in a row, not to mention it completely eats up my Monday nights

Yeah, being the 7th hour of tv and the only hour unavailable on tv make it fairly unwatched. The in ring product is good but not that different from any other wwe product. The stories are fine but require you to watch a raw segment each week. It's just all meh.

They're booking it now so you can stop watching after hour 2 (plus about ~15 minutes of overrun).

The crowds have been way livelier for 205 Live than NXT for a long time now.

Nah I would say they are about even, NXT has been much stronger this year after the frankly lackluster 2016, presentation since Mania reboot has revitalized the show and its only problem has been the crowd's apathy

Why

I was talking to someone about this recently as well. There aren't any real indications of what could turn into a Ladder match, no one is really using Chairs, Tables, or Ladders to DQ themselves during the build to signify their respective Chair, Tables, or Ladder match. So far the only TLC match on the card is Shield vs Miz/Bar/Braun and so far that doesn't have a title on the line so...I don't think they even really used any Tables, Ladders or Chairs in the build to that either did they? This feels like someone thought they were building to a different PPV and then suddenly remembered.

Feel free to correct me on any of this, I've only really half tuned in.

EDIT: They could do some bullshit with the Cruiserweight title I guess for a ladder match?
