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.

Nia Jax never won a title in NXT either, and was quickly shipped off to RAW and Smackdown because of her relation to The Rock apparently. I don't see anything different happening here.

I'm glad Becky started when she did. As tough a time as she's had rising above bad booking and random celebs and nepotism to get to the top of the division, it'd have been impossible even 2 years from now. It's a trend that's only going to be doubled down on

Eh. The limit of her push was getting her head kicked off by Asuka on the only Takeover that couldn't make it out of Full Sail in the last few years.

In fact wasn't that Takeover on a Wednesday?

Posted it in the NXT thread, but I'll post it here as well. Kairi Sane has a new shirt on the WWE Shop. It's so close to being an actual acceptable shirt. But the neon pink/violet text ruins it.

at KO squashing people, that's WWE booking as gently caress.

Roman is at the top.
Braun is at the level below that.
KO gets squashed by Braun in a minute.
Breeze gets squashed by KO in a minute.

How do these people even belong in the same division?

Exactly why they've been setting up the Women's Division to be a big deal. As a father of daughters, HHH realized he needed to refocus the women's division so his children could be set up as draws.

Triplemania had some good matches, some spectacle matches and some bad stuff but it was a fun watch even if the show might not have been good. It sure as heck did not drag anywhere near as bad as Summerslam though

It's telling that Triplemania could be as botch-ridden as it was and still unquestionably be better than the best (main roster, because no doubt someone would otherwise quote and swear a Takeover was better like that's in any way what this is being compared to) WWE PPV of the year

I mean I don't know how much credit I'm willing to give the Rumble anymore given that a big part of how fun it was was the result of the two Rumbles and we know where that went.

Yeah after this year's Rumble, no one should assume that the winners are going to do anything of note or go on to find success. At least I can take solace in the fact that people are absolutely ripping WWE to pieces over that Asuka promo being filled with racial stereotypes/borderline offensive.

The sooner Vince leaves this goddamn company the better. He and Dunn are likely the only people who found that promo hilarious.

Even worse, they also did the OH SHE LIKES TERIYAKI HA HA HA stuff as well. So not only that, but they decided to do the racial sterotyping bit as well. And WWE is rightfully getting poo poo on for it.

Like if Triple H has any sort of common sense, he will fight tooth and nail to keep Kairi and Io down in NXT for as long as humanely possible.

The HHH v Undertaker thing is not a feud though, it is a "special attraction" match between two old has beens whose best is at least 5-10 years ago.

It exists on the SuperDuper "hey look we have the MCG" Showdown to make it seem big time, because WWE can't make new stars, so the biggest ones, (at least in terms of mainstream name recognition) they have are old and irrelevant 40+ year olds. Talk to a non wrestling fan and they will know who The Undertaker is, but not Roman Reigns. Talk to non wrestling/non sport media and they wouldn't give a gently caress about Roman, (to use their current top name), but would be happy to talk about Undertaker vs HHH.

HHH plugging it on TV is to try and get ticket sales up for sure, (the MCG is loving huge and they will need every bum on seat they can get), but mostly for him to wank on about how "Yeah the Undertaker was a big star, but he was mainly a big star because he wrestled ME! Remember ME, I am HHH and I am the coolest and toughest and bestest ever!" on his father in law's TV show.

If they wanted to fill the MCG they shouldn't have set such insane prices. Family fun at WWE is way less tempting at $200/head
