saw someone on reddit theorize that the cell was red so that plastic hinges or what have you on the cage door wouldn't stand out. that makes as much sense as anything to me.

Then why not paint the hinges?

He also beat Roman Reigns on a PPV completely clean but then he lost to him on a nothing Raw for number 1 contendership, so he never earned a match with Brock.

This poo poo is still hilarious to me. Lashley comes back, is moderately pushed and then gets a clean pinfall over Roman while they're trying to determine a #1 contender. Then he loses the actual contender match and totally becomes another afterthought. This company has the attention span of a gnat outside of overbooking everything that involves Roman Reigns. And the Reigns overbooking doesn't even make him look good half of the time, they're just trying to 4th dimensional chess get people to stop booing him because they're so stupid and stubborn.

In fairness to the WWE in this one specific case, Lashley has sucked on toast every second he's been on television since his return and forgetting he exists until he fucks back off to TNA is absolutely the right call.

It's just wild with the way they book to protect Roman (without actually putting him over strong consistently, either) that one of the small handful of guys they've trusted to get a clean pinfall over him is Bobby Lashley, a guy who they don't actually seem to actually have any plans for.

Anyone know what was said when Heyman was going off after coming out last night that kept getting censored? Was Heyman the one getting censored or was some rear end in a top hat in the crowd yelling poo poo behind him?

NXT (and the respective Takeovers) and Mae Young Classic. That's about it, to be honest! Unless you have Hulu, although apparently they charge money in general now to watch anything on their site? News to me.

i liked when arli$$ was on wcw and macho man did the elbow drop to billy kidman and raised him up before the 3 count to punish him a bit more but arli$$ didn't know any loving thing and immediately went into yelling about the resilience of billy kidman to kick out. it was the real guy but playing the character arli$$.

Watching Takeover live in November?

I stopped my subscription last month with the intention of subscribing just for the Takeovers (and if I can get free months for them all the better).

So apparently there are people out there who want to see more Ronda vs Alexa matches.

It's like they didn't watch how awful their match was last night.

Scorching take: It was as good as Charlotte and Becky, but at least everyone wanted Becky to win.

It's funny that at SummerSlam they did the squash not because it was exactly the kind of match Ronda vs. Alexa should be but because the show had a billion matches and they needed to cut time. Then at HiaC they did the "real" match and it was garbage. WWE style, folks.

Nah, I'm going to remain optimistic. Where people in here seem to want to see Asuka fail or are writing her off, when it seems like the opposite is going to happen. If you don't like reading me being optimistic about Asuka's future, then don't reply. I'm not doing any harm by posting about it.

fatherofmustard posted:

There's no reason to be optimistic.

People should optimism and hope wherever they can

Besides, DarkstarIV is right that there is plenty of precedent for WWE just randomly making somebody a champion long past the point they should have or after loving up the booking plenty of times. It doesn't mean they'll suddenly start booking Asuka right (lord knows it shouldn't be difficult) but her being champion at some point in the next year certainly wouldn't be unusual in WWE's history.

Plus remember that WWE explicitly and specifically promised me personally they were going to do a Becky/Asuka feud.
