I wasn't expecting WWE to just outright admit that they did this to break Punk's record, figured that they'd be slightly more subtle about it.

They lost their precious lawsuit but still saw Punk lose a UFC fight, they were never gonna miss a chance to try to kick him while he was down. If Amann hadn't had literally no case and they managed to win that too, they'd be so giddy you'd be hearing Heyman make fun of Punk on-air for losing a title record too every week Brock still had the belt

You're gonna get Braun dancing in a diaper ŗ la Big Show and drat it you're gonna love it

The difference is that the same episode they do that they'll have him squash an upper card guy. Goes a long way.

In related news, I hate seeing Braun (a wrestler I don't enjoy) keep squashing wrestlers I enjoy via being big and strong. He occasionally does it in interesting ways, but more often just no sell powerslam.

I want him to feud with Seth and have Seth win. Bullshit that the frog splash at the chamber didn't pin Braun.

Seth weighs like 130 pounds, coming off the pod doesnít add enough force to that.

It looked awesome, was a non finisher elimination which WWE should do more often, lays groundwork for Seth winning the title, and for a future feud between the two.

Plus then rather than "can Roman overcome the odds and beat Braun again?!?!?!?" it's shield brothers facing off. I'll defend this forever.

Next you'll be telling me Bryan should grow 6+ inches if he wants to be a champion!

And if I'm gonna cry, I don't need your shoulder.

Big Cass should take Baron Corbin's lead and become a constable.

edit: Also are they trying to get people to boo Rusev by having Miz help him? Insomuch as anyone who is a friend of Miz, (onscreen), is automatically a heel.

Unless I missed another promo, it was the one he delivered last week (but only on WWE.com) so I didn't bring it up. It's pretty galling to think they probably only bothered to show it because it generated a bit of buzz.

Lol they are going to extend it to Extreme Rules.

Also some potentially good news regarding the MITB card. Or not. Depends on your outlook on things. The talk is that Ronda vs Nia will be a very short match, however it is one of the front runners to be the actual main event of MITB.

I hope it isn't. At least if Roman and Jinder main, I can leave early.

About 50% of the time the wreslers will eventually win them over and get "this is awesome" chants based entirely on workrate. Last night was not one of those times.

When the drug test comes back positive for performance enhancing drugs.

I personally think it owns that Bryan killed Cass in a minute long promo meant for their youtube only, and Cass has tried in two separate 5+ minute TV promos to gain any ground and instead just looks like a stupid jackass who sucks.

Can't wait for Cass to pin Daniel Bryan in a lovely match because even Daniel loving Bryan can't carry Cass to a decent showing.

Having been to a Smackdown Live event myself, I understand why this always the case. Fatigue sets in pretty good at the end of Smackdown. I was partway ready to leave for home myself when 205 started.

It still utterly baffles me that this isn't the case, even more so than the fact 205 Live is supposed to be (it's largely been abandoned) a subsidary of the Raw brand but has always aired Tuesday nights directly after Smackdown.

Every time I hear it I think the same thing - in 20 years are they going to be talking about "the modern era" of two decades earlier? I guess it's kinda like when "The new Generation" was their thing and they almost never talk about that anymore for obvious reasons.
