So, at what point does WWE get a loving clue about their schedule and how many injuries it causes, anyway?

The 205 Live soft reboot has been a home run for me, so far. Drake is great, the matches are great, no more long-rear end goofy promos, just two long singles matches with some small segments in between. Love it.

It was a great match and tbh Roddy going over was probably the right call.

So he's been called up to 205 for good now? That's good if so

If not and Hideo's the only one of the two who's going to be there regularly, uh

Someone else made the point in the thread that you should have at least one or two of these NXT/UK cameo guys go over so they're not ALL just first round fodder.

On the point of Roddy specifically though, it kinda feels like his window to win the NXT Championship has passed, he's obviously not hanging out with AoP anymore (which is a huge waste of potential because Roderick Strong The Littlest Author of Pain loving ruled), so it's not like there's a lot left for him to do in NXT.

Definitely don't disagree, just feels super weird to have it be at the expense of this recently-hyped big move to the roster

Anyway I realize this is a big derail from the real important news, which is Jinder/Gronk at Mania

I guess this "big push for Miz" stuff isn't bullshit, because yesterday is the first time, as far as I've known, that he's EVER given a poo poo about going after Lesnar.

Like, the whole point of Miz's character on Raw is that he's obsessed with the Intercontinental Championship because he is well aware that it's the only championship he's capable of obtaining as long as Brock is the Universal Champion and he has no interest in getting murdered by Brock. Now all of a sudden he wants to become the first ever Intercontinental-Universal Champion ever.

Chris James 2 posted:

A theme they seem to be kinda pushing is that a byproduct of all of these great matches is that there's a lot of great names going out in the first round. Besides Itami, Metalik and Bate are already out and Dorado certainly acquitted himself better than he's been allowed to at any point in 205 Live's history.

I like Miz a lot so am very glad to see him for at least 4 more years. I never expected him to recover from his complete irrelevance in 2012-2014, but goddamn, did he ever.

Seriously lol at that loving face turn in 2013

I love the miz he's one of my favourites he has come a long way, and people knock his wrasslin but I feel like he's improved the last 2-3 years or so, admittedly stealing Bryan's moves helped, but regardless he's a heel you can boo at a show but he puts over the faces in promos and seems like a really hard worker

maybe it's just because im old now with kids now idk
