Michael Cole welcomed Renee Young as a fulltime member of the commentary team, replacing Coach who will now be relegated to PPV pre-shows.

Why?

What good could that possibly do? He's always been bad and he isn't going to get any better.

Now nobody will have to watch him, since nobody watches the pre-shows I guess

Oh poo poo my brain skipped over the pre-show bit of that and was just thinking PPVs.

Still - there are probably half a dozen or more people on payroll that could do it much better even on the pre-show.

My favorite moment from Raw was when Renee was excited to see Balor win and Cole reprimanded her.

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

The colour vibrancy of the brown and pink on the Kairi Sane shirt don't match and are not of the same type.

It's bad on a graphic design 101 level. It's like how you don't mix pastel and neon.

Yeah it's always been amazing to me that WWE actually pays someone to design the garbage they churn out on merch

Or maybe that's the secret - maybe they've never paid someone to do it and it's just a producer with MS Paint or something

While it's bad, you're ignoring the fact that the fence is not thin chain link and are these huge metal beams



It's amazing what even a quick color shift can do

Hell I used to watch cage matches with the thick blue bar cage the cartoon era used and it was fine. The bright red is very distracting though.

It must be intense to put up and tear down those giant complicated electronic sets day in and day out

I'm sure their crew has it down to a science but seeing them fully set up and powered/lit it's kinda crazy to think about them doing it hundreds of times a year - especially when you think back to when sets were a bit of metal piping and some giant stand up letters. Now they're incredible multi screen setups that go from floor to roof. Hell even the ring posts and aprons have screens.

They've got some amazing guests like Jeff Goldblum and Terry Crews but I think those are the only two wrestling related ones.

There shouldn't be escape options for cage matches period - it should be pinfall or submission.

The whole reason you're in the fuckin' cage is to stop the other guy from running or have his goons interfere or whatever else has been happening for the last few weeks leading up to it. Why go through the trouble of getting a cage match when they can just run from you and win? It's never made sense. And stop with the busting through the side gimmick.

Mr. Carlisle
Jul 14, 2007



Yeah there's always constant interference bullshit and escapes in like the final tier of cages meant for there to never be any escapes or interference

Makes the whole thing completely pointless

Man I'm sure glad they had that big cage so nobody could get in and mess any of these fights up.

We've seen so many people rip doors off of or kick down doors on cages that they're completely pointless in every way

Instead some uninterested barons can text on their phones from the front row entirely ignoring the trip to suplex city they paid for
