am i bad and wrong for getting slightly tired of Braun?

Absolutely not. You can only see someone beat everyone else But the champ for so long

Credit where it's due, Braun's only in year 2 of that with Brock, nowhere near Reigns' current 5 with Brock, so it's fair to only be slightly tired, there's still the slight hope it might ever have a payoff. Year 3 will probably get everyone in the cool stage if it gets to Year 3

WWE PPVs are always a crapshoot, you can generally rely on MITB at least to have one match that is crazy and/or exciting and justify watching the show, a Chicago crowd is usually pretty on fire, and I'm still holding out hope that they FINALLY allow an AJ/Nakamura match to have a proper ending.

Miz is gonna win MITB earlier in the night, then cash in mid match after AJ and Nakamura have kicked each other in the nuts for 15 minutes, thus winning the title without touching either guy.

I look the other way on-screen wise as I like their social media especially their Snapchat/Instagram videos. They have lots of chemistry outside of the ring and clearly enjoy their jobs, travelling the world, life etc.

Ruby is a very strong in-ring wrestler obviously.

And I remain unable to process Heidi Lovelace on WWE TV, but if she isn't one of the more solid hands by default than WWE ruined her in record time. Like, she's not amazing or anything but she's pretty good.

Riott Squad really suffers from how badly WWE writes the Women's division. Like, if they're just a group of friends that's cool but they don't need to be heels. If they're a heel faction then what's their goal? Why have they not made any real attempts for belt? They always feel like an excuse to book multi-women matches.

yep https://www.wwe.com/shows/raw/artic...eign-modern-era

WWE posted:

Brock Lesnar’s long list of WWE accomplishments has now grown by one: The Beast Incarnate has officially notched the longest World Championship reign of the modern era.

Lesnar’s ongoing run as Universal Champion surpassed the previous marker, CM Punk’s 434-day stint as WWE Champion that stretched between 2011 and 2013. Lesnar’s advocate (and, coincidentally, Punk’s former hype man) Paul Heyman commemorated the occasion by taking to Twitter.

That Lesnar has powered his way into the history books is impressive in and of itself, but given that no challengers have yet to emerge for The Conqueror’s throne, the most awe-inspiring aspect of his reign isn’t that it has lasted this long, but that it seems unlikely to end anytime soon.

Truly this. Vince is overpaying one man who doesn't give a poo poo and will happily take the money and having him break a phoney record all to spite a man who turned his back on the entire industry years ago.

When Brock got teh news about breaking the record, he shrugged, grunted then told them he wasn't going to work for another 2 months and cashed his giant check,

Punk will hear the news about the record, (possibly maybe) be a little annoyed/amused that they are still trying to mess with him in this way, then shrug and go back to ignoring WWE and all who work there while living his life.

Vince however will be masturbating and cackling going, "Haha! Take that! I took a scripted record from you, (which is all you care about), and gave it to a taller, (and therefore more masculine and sexy) man. I'm Vince McMahon dammnit!"

The dumbest part about it is that it's a different belt.

I mean... if they are pissed off at Brock one day, they could make up a "WWE Galaxy Championship", give it to Vince, literally have him never defend it, and then say "Vince McMahon is the longest reigning WWE Champion in the modern era" when be beats the record. They're different belts.

Why are the New Day not the longest reigning champions of the Modern Era? or Asuka? I mean, Asuka is a champion that beat Punk's record, it's a different title. Why does that not count
