So they're going to promote a woman to commentary only to poo poo on her and more or less call her stupid on air until they remove her because WWE, right

My favorite moment from last night was after you get through the little tutorial as Spider-man you change into Peter Parker and gently caress around for like an hour just doing lab work and hacking minigames and throwing a surprise party for Aunt May.

feuding with Sasha and Bayley, hey, remember them? And Ember Moon? She was a person, right? What is happening?
Sasha and Bayley are still showing up regularly, treading water as sickly sweet lesbiansjust really great friends, trying to plaster over their aborted feud.
Ember Moon may now be in a tag team with Dana Brooke, or at least is a supporting character in Dana Broke's personal redemption story.

I wish I were joking, but that is, I'm pretty sure, what their current statuses are.

Evolution, y'all.

Foley did a good promo and Ronda is really loving over, and in the case of the latter it's really nice seeing how the crowd is just fully and totally behind her and absolutely buy her as an asskicker.

I like how there was absolutely no huge rollout for the Bella Twins comeback. They.....were ringside at SummerSlam. Then Brie got mad at The Miz.

It's 2018, you gotta be a diva, a part timer, or a daughter of someone in WWE to get a storyline. The bellas are all 3 so they get to be on both shows the rest of the year.

I actually thought Owens did a reasonably good job of addressing it. He specifically said he wasn't there to help anybody or do favors for anyone, he went out there because he hates the dudes in The Shield and it was an opportunity to beat the poo poo out of them and he knew he would face zero consequences for it.

The idea that Owens had worked out a deal where he can't be punished for doing whatever the gently caress he wants, and in fact doing whatever the gently caress he wants IS his job, is a pretty fun concept. Whether WWE leaves him alone to make it work or decides to "help" I guess remains to be seen.

i really wanna see it work. Just let KO get back to being a straight up mean heel. Wreck some people. Get banished to SDL to get him away from Braun. Do it bad enough that when Zayn comes back, he's shocked at how brutal KO's gone, and turns to take him down.

Brie transcends the brand split.

By building up Riott Squad, The Boss and Hug Connection, bringing back the Bellas, this Nattie/Rhonda partnership, the Alexa/Micky/Alicia partnership... I'd swear it's almost like they are getting ready for a Raw Women's Tag Team Championship while Rhonda holds the belt until Wrestlemania and remains undefeated. They actually would have 5 times, which is better than the men's tag division.

Cedric should move to the main roster too. I imagine a new nation of domination with him, lashley, apollo, jason jordan, and byron saxton. Instead of being a group of badasses they're just very smiley and lovable and they occasionally do charity work with titus. Finn joins them one day owen hart style when they realize he smiles more than they do.

I don't see her being pushed in NXT at least, unless she's really good in the ring. They value workrate more than nepotism there it seems. Main roster though is trouble. Also she's only 17 right now, so she probably won't actually debut in any meaningful fashion until a year or so from now.
