Cesaro and Russev are great pro wrestlers, that why it is so crazy that WWE has great scouts that can figure out who to hire, it is just too bad the person running the place has gone from crazy like a fox to just plan crazy.

Vince was always just crazy, hes the luckiest motherfucker walking the earth

That's the best part about this entire thing. Punjabi isn't even the most dominant language in India. Jinder cuts his promos in it, but it makes no loving sense from a marketing perspective.

In India:

Punjabi is spoken by around 35m people as of 2015.
English is spoken by 122m people as of 2015.
Hindi is spoken by 425m+ people as of 2015.

Like WWE should know this, considering their Indian broadcast team uses/speaks Hindi.

Also yeah, India doesn't like Jinder.

And Vince will probably stop the push the moment financials come in from this attempt at expanding into India. He's absolutely loving stupid from a booking standpoint, but he will also probably stop the push once he realizes network subs/revenue is down in every other country that WWE operates in/has services in, because he's not a complete dumbass when it comes to business decisions.

I asked one of my indian fans about this and he said Jinder is speaking Hindi

It's a Punjab dialect apparently

*According to two different sources, Neville has pushed for a release with the idea of leaving the company and building his name outside of it, similar to what Drew McIntyre did prior to his return to NXT. We have been told there were several factors Neville was unhappy with. One source claimed a souring point was being left off of the Wrestlemania 33 DVD, which meant no royalties from what is traditionally the biggest selling WWE DVD of the year.


lol that's insanely cheap/petty by wwe

It isn't. To my understanding, there was no space on the DVD set for those matches.


Horseshit.

Like, I don't doubt you were told that. But you were told horseshit.

Bray actually had a cool thing going with he and Randy as the tag champs, and Harper's growing resentment at being cast to the sidelines. By the time Bray won the world title, they were setting up a potentially great breakup angle between the three and Harper got great crowd reactions as a righteous babyface

Then Randy burned down a shack, Harper got chucked into the trash and Bray made the ring look like bugs. Somehow it got worse from there.

The title match should have been a triple threat

It's easy in hindsight to poo-poo the lesnar match but I and most of us dug it in the moment and they should have pulled the trigger then
