I liked how genuinely enthusiastic Cole sounded about Dunne. I think he was just pleased that he actually knew something about a debuting guy from first-hand knowledge. He even called the finish properly, both by what the move is and then by the fancy name.
Cole and Nigel (and presumably no Vince in their ear) on the UK Tournament were a loving great desk

I like how this is both doubling down on the dad angle ( ), but also abandoning it.

They had a golden opportunity to do it when Randy burned his house down and they doubled down on it instead. I expect it to get even worse.

I wish they did more with Pete Dunne and the rest of the UK guys, that match between him and Tyler Bate at one of the NXT takeovers was so good but then they've barely used them since

I'm pretty happy with the UK talent's set up right now. They're rolled out in front of NXT crowds (crowds that would give them a reaction) as special attractions, and for the moment it's worked. Makes them feel like more of a deal.

The last thing I'd want is the UK division to go the same way as the cruiserweights, trotted out every week and made to wrestle the same style of match as everyone else on the roster for 5 minutes.

It's not the angle it is Bryan Alvarez theorizing why Booker acts the way he does on the shows towards JJ.

Jericho 18 years ago in his Y2J debut posted:

Now let's go over the facts. Television ratings, downward spiral; pay-per-view buy-rates, plummeting; mainstream acceptance, non-existent; and reactions of the live crowds, complete and utter silence. And I know why you're silent! You're silent because you're embarrassed to be here. And quite honestly, I'm embarrassed for you. And the reason why you're embarrassed is because of the steady stream of uninteresting, untalented, mediocre "sports entertainers" who you're forced to cheer for and care for. No wonder you're not cheering! You could care less about every single idiot in that dressing room, and especially this idiot in the center of the ring. You people have been led to believe that mediocrity is excellence.

With the whole poo poo of Roman and Bray getting sick scuttling best laid plans, it doesn't surprise me to get the titles off of Seth and Dean. It feels like they're going to torpedo The Shield reunion before the Rumble and get them both back into mediocre singles competition feuds for Mania while the death march to Roman's coronation continues ever onward once he returns.

They were always going to burn Seth and Dean's popularity at the altar of getting Roman over anyway at least this way they can still be good on their own, eventually again, while Vince drags us to hell with Roman leading the way.

Seems more likely to me that they took the title from Seth and Dean so they can regain them as The Shield when Roman gets back

I'm impressed that they let them still do as many indie dates as they do. I watched Dunne fight John Morrison at a show at Santino's school in Ontario a few weeks ago, it was awesome.

They are only paying these guys 20,000 a year, if they didn't let them take those dates they'd starve to death.

I was gonna say I'm surprised considering how injury prone he is but I think that was the old Sin Cara? And now I'm not even sure if that was injuries or just botches he was known for

Both, botches and injuries usually went hand-in-hand.

The one I always remember is him jumping to the outside against Del Rio, and calling the match off because he strained his finger, to which Del Rio just booted him in the face.

I want to say this happened a few weeks before someone else worked through a match long injury (maybe Zayn's shoulder injury against Cena?)
