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?

Fightful has The Scoopz on the rash of cruiserweights showing up to be managers. I guess people are trying to convince Vince that Managers Are Good?

Astro7x posted:

Like... they consider it a positive that at MITB the audience completely poo poo on Jinder/Reigns just becaues they moved the needle because they were reacting, but hated that the crowd was doing the countdown during Ziggler/Rollins Iron Man match even though they were reacting as well? Or they popped big for Reigns before the Reigns/Joe PPV match where people were chanting beat the traffic and leaving early, but becaues they were not just sitting on their hands or looking at their phones the whole match it was positive? I don't get it.

They don't actually consider it a positive. They had some shills cry on twitter about DISRESPECTING THE WORKERS and Roman himself did his usual I'm Not Owned shtick on twitter. Then he did it again, preemptively for SummerSlam. I'm pretty sure they're actually sort of livid when the crowd craps on Roman's matches like that.

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.

It's kind of insane how many people you just plain don't think about in WWE are probably the absolute best at what they do and we just totally take it for granted because a handful of maybe....five people tops? Ruin the TV show for us so it sours the whole thing.

Watching a couple of those matches made me realize what the point of the escape clause is. Iit always made Bruno look like a badass as he casually sauntered out of the ring while his opponent was laying in a pool of his own blood in the center of the ring. Shame every cage match now is people trying to flee or barely making it out first or straight up busting through the cage.

This is why Roman whining about that stupid cage match for months wrung so hollow to me. He spent four loving months going on and on about how he was the Real Champion because he might've touched the floor two seconds before Brock did. Not because he beat Brock, but on the flimsiest technicality possible.

This one.

AJ holds the belt until he passes Punk's reign. Then he drops to Miz, probably at the Rumble? Then Bryan wins the Rumble and beats Miz at Mania.

Excuse me, but we all know The Rock is going to enter the Rumble and win. And then challenge the Big Dog at Wrestlemania, so Roman can have another accolade tacked onto his record. "You are the real people's champ, Roman!!!"

Vince has figured out that he can trick people into thinking Wrestlemania will be good if he puts over somebody people will like at the Rumble, so expect it to be Bryan. Then the WWE championship will go on fourth from the top.

Y'know, I at least thought for a second there after both guys were F5ed, "Okay, so, Dean and Drew are the only guys here that aren't dead. That's why they brought everybody out, now one of them can drag their guy on top of the other for the pin."

And then the loving ref called for a No Contest.

New Year's Eve is on a Monday and New Year's Day 2019 is Tuesday. Talent will probably have to work both days live/away from families too (Raw crew doing it for the second year in a row because New Year's 2018 was on a Monday) even though taping it in advance would be much easier, quicker, and more generous to the talent who so constantly put their bodies on the line

I actually think they might be taping New Year's the Friday before in Detroit.

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.

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.
