She at least got through the portion of her promo at ringside without stumbling on her words, but that backstage bit was rough.

I also loved Graves asking incredulously, "Can anyone tell me what a pah-pah is?" or whatever she mumbled into the microphone.

I do like Rusev......but 'Rusev day' is so ludicrously overdone as a catchphrase and concept. I know it's been said a million times, but gently caress the writers. That's actually the team name "Rusev day".

I'm not imagining things am I, she still hasn't even attempted to cash that in, right?

Why is she bargaining with Daniel Bryan for a title shot when she's got the MITB case?

She has one mega-title shot. But she would like regular ones as well - more opportunities is good. Plus if you get fluke rolled up when you think you had the match in the bag? MITB time!

pressedbunny posted:

Oh, okay. That's not a terribly clever way of writing around it, but at least it's something. I've been feeling like they've forgotten what the case does. Is this the longest someone has had the case without trying to use it?

in about 120 days she will surpass Edge's record.

STOP DOING HEROIN

What's your favorite part of the Smackdown women's division:

1. The babyfaces and heels standing side by side bickering at each other and saying their catchphrases, just like real people would do in a real conflict

2. The same thing, but with Naomi and Becky written off so there's literally no babyfaces left besides the champ

How about Shane just goes the gently caress away forever? Why is he still here? Wasn't Hell in a Cell supposed to be the big blowoff with his Owens feud? Way to put over the "punishment" of that Satanic structure by coming back 2 weeks later and naming yourself Survivor Series captain. And also being the last badass survivor on your team, effortlessly fighting off Sami and Kevin 1-on-2, and still almost winning the match.

loving hell, HHH would blush at this Mary Sue booking.

Here's the thing, on SmackDown they keep saying Sami and Kevin cost SmackDown the match, but, what the gently caress are you actually talking about. Braun Strowman murdered three guys on team SmackDown and was about to kill Shane before the HHH/Angle drama happened. Sami and Kevin had zero effect on the outcome of that match. Nobody in that match was capable of doing poo poo to Strowman. They lost because they didn't have a plan for Strowman. The entire plot of Survivor Series is that when Strowman and Roman weren't around, SmackDown kicked the crap out of Raw, but then Strowman and Roman came back and they pissed off Kurt enough to get personally involved and Raw immediately started beating SmackDown to within an inch of its life.

If this story were good, it'd be about how Shane is trying to cover for his myriad of failures as captain and commissioner by using Sami and Kevin as scapegoats.

The funniest part is last time, the year Shane didn't intentionally make himself part of the team and there was actually a decent story reason for him to be there, there clearly was a plan in place to deal with Strowman and they executed it and it worked and they won. Shane got way dumber and way more high on his own farts over the course of a year of being commissioner.

Henry would be better because Shane just does not come off like a credible threat with his dogshit offense and terrible ring psychology. We at least know that Henry is still capable of laying out a motherfucker if he's pushed, Shane is just gonna do his lovely skips and whiffy punches while better performers are forced to sell him like death itself.
