So I guess we are getting a lumberjack match at Extreme Rules?

How the gently caress do we get a second week of Bayley/Sasha counseling sketches?

It is amazing how my viewing of Raw has changed so much in the past few years. These days, I literally go to the WWE YouTube page after the show, look at the thumbnails of each segment, and don't even click on any of the loving videos anymore. It's like... nothing matters.

There are 20 segments posted to the channel from Raw.

6 segments are Reigns/Lashley related
4 segments are Bliss/Nia/Rousey related
2 segments are Mojo related
1 has Jinder Mahal in it

Of the matches I see, I assume that Mojo/Jose was boring and went nowhere, that Hardy/Bo didn't matter. Ember/Liv most likely ended with Ember winning.

Why should I watch any of this?

Yeah, I find it hard to believe that last Monday's RAW had a lower rating than any of those pre-taped RAWs from the 90s

Seriously... A quick google search shows that the ratings were lowest during the Monday Night War on 12/23/96 with a 1.5

http://www.wrestlescoop.com/informa...ro-ratings-war/

It went up against this Prime Time Lineup.


1 rating point = 970,000 TV households


I think it worth noting that WWE's fans are more engaged than any other fans, which is probably worth something

Facebook recommended a WWE group to me that has 315,000 members in it. Over the past day every other post is essentially about who will win on Sunday, Lashley or Roman. There are hundreds of comments to each post with people actually caring about who will win and commenting with who they want to win.

Guys... I think we're the wrong demographic for this show.

It's amazing how goddamn petty Vince is towards NXT talent in general it seems. Someone floated the theory that Vince intentionally ruins the vast majority of NXT callups because they weren't created by him. And the sad thing is, I can completely believe it.

I don't know how you can have that mindset from a statistical mindset. Like... take the men's Raw roster. You have 40 people there. If "NXT Talent" is considered anybody that got popular through Post-WWE Network NXT (Bo Dallas and onward), literally half the roster is "NXT Talent". If you expand that to people that went through NXT in any form (including Shield), that's puts it at 31/9 ratio, and then all it leaves is a bunch of jobbers, Brock, Ziggler, Hardy, and Lashley.

No one believed me when I first said WWE didn't consider Becky pretty enough for the main roster.

To be fair... she looks WAY different than what she looked like in her early NXT days. I know people love to make fun of WWE using the Homer Simpsons makeup shotgun, but the hair, makeup, ring gear, and developing a non-dancing leprechaun personality goes a long way.

There was a scene on Total Divas where they talked to the Bellas about having something for them from January to April or whatever. Made me think Nikki was actually going to win

If they are not going to try to book extreme rules matches that make sense for this PPV, at least do a roulette where and let it be random stipulations all night long.

How was Hogan suspended from the HOF but this man never was?

No Daniel No...is what I'm saying from my selfish perspective in wanting him to leave the company that ignored the fan opinion of him for so long...and from a wish to see him in NJPW.

I would assume that Bryan would rather make more money and not work in Japan away from his family. I am surprised he is going to resign and have a full time schedule, because based on interviews it seems he doesn't like being away from home for these full loops.


TV Zombie posted:

I wonder when fatigue will hit the crowd in this 12 match extravaganza. Has NJPW put out this long a card?

I went to MITB. I didn't feel like there was fatigue watching the whole thing. People left during the Reigns match to get food/bathroom in droves, and if they put that on as the main event, people will just leave early.

Things that were good tonight:

Almas won
The B-Team won
Randy punching Jeff in the nuts was funny
The Mickie/Alexa/Nia assembly line spot was funny
Mickie James, in general
The chokeslam off the cage was cool
The two last matches had some neat spots

It had like 90 minutes of solid wrestling out of 5 hours.
