When in doubt, root for Braun.

Maybe this is just 'cause I haven't been watching week-to-week for more than about 18 months at this point so I totally missed poo poo like the Reign of Terror and the Authority but I feel like you guys are super overreacting on HHH. He's won, like, twice, in the last four years.

It just seems super obvious to me that he's in the "put people over" phase of his career and this is gonna lead to him losing to Jason Jordan. Then again, it was super obvious to me that he was gonna lose to Seth and I remember some of you guys thinking he'd win that match too, sooooo.

Also, hey, they shortened that India thing to one show! What's that mean?

Two out of three of those things were good as gently caress and Sting shoulda fought harder for it if he wanted to get the W.

I could see Big E play the Big Poppa Pump to Xavier's Buff Bagwell, with the added bonus that Big E and Xavier are good.

maybe aj will still be champion when the rumble comes around

also, real quick, still watching early 90s wcw, at starrcade they did this insane battle bowl lottery thing with tag teams drawn from a big bin, anyway, one of the tag matches is scott steiner with three of the absolute worst, campiest, greatest gimmicks ever, arachnaman, johnny b. badd, and firebreaker chip, who is a fireman.

Big E is over 30 and as such should probably be fired so younger talent can shine.

He and Stephanie (more Stephanie) are so often hegemonic figures on TV who get their comeuppance once a year at most. Is he going to lose to Jason Jordan or is he going to face Angle at WM? I think it's more likely Jason Jordan ends up as HHH's lackey than HHH has a PPV singles match with him.

Two of those were basically the same thing and, for better or worse, were in service of the new top act.

HHH got Sockoed by Mick Foley for about six seconds. That was neat.

Stephanie, I totally get why people hate her, because she's there every stinking week doing the same crap, but HHH at least seems to have figured out that he should use himself more sparingly in the past year and a half or so and I think that makes a difference.

And, I dunno, I could be wrong. But the course I see here is "Team Raw loses" > "HHH beats Kurt Angle in a match." > "Jason Jordan beats HHH". I think they're high on Jordan and thy're gonna try and give him a boost by having HHH put him over in some fashion.

The obvious play is to rip off Sandman/Raven and have JJ tell Kurt that HHH is his daddy now.

To me Steph is so much goddamn worse. This is damning with faint praise but HHH at least adds something and USUALLY puts people over now. Steph is just toxic.

I don't see how you could possibly think Jason Jordan beating HHH would happen after the way the crowd has turned on him so hard.

if they can take jordan off tv and redebut him at the rumble with a different character, i could see it happening. this iteration of him needs to go away forever, its never getting over.

This is all speculation but I'm assuming Brock wasn't feeling like having the fight with Jinder and so he told WWE that he wanted a match with someone with some actual experience and WWE had like 3 seconds to think and blurted out AJ Styles realizing he was probably the most experienced guy on smackdown anybody gives a poo poo about and it was all set from that.
