There are lost episodes of course. Stories that were commissioned but never made. Or made but misfiled, post broadcast. Sheer incompetence, of course.

If you want to touch me there.

Given Daniel Bryan beat The Miz in Melbourne, are they finished with that feud? Coz if Bryan is now No. 1 contender, then you have to have him chasing the belt, as opposed to pissing around with Miz.

And if so, that was a lovely way to end that feud. Both men deserved better from the feud.

Meltzer this morning said WWE used Trish vs Alexa as a placeholder big match to sell tickets until Nikki vs Ronda was set up for Evolution.

Alexa/Mickie vs Trish/Lita was always the plan.

I am only half joking when I say this, but after watching the UFC 4HW get worked up over the beatdown last night, I can see them helping Ronda at Evolution and us having to suffer from a UFC 4HW vs Bellas, Alexa, and Mickie match at Survivor Series.

The Bellas get a huge pop and seem to sell a lot of merch so I'm not surprised they have a prominent role. I'm a little surprised they turned heel, especially since there's no way they're getting cheered over the extremely popular Ronda. Doesn't seem good for the "Bella Brand".

I'm glad Mickie is in a match and it's cool that it's vs. Trish without it being solely an old feud rekindled, since, of course, they can't really show footage of Mickie sexually assaulting Trish. It felt weird that Mickie is an active wrestler unlike Trish yet she was stuck playing the manager role in Trish vs. Alexa... especially since that initial angle really made Mickie James in my eyes.

I'm not psyched to see Lita in the ring again since I always think she's going to die on a moonsault or something but she should definitely be in the PPV in some capacity and I guess this is better than a singles match. Did I lose my mind or was she originally slotted for a singles match? Or was that just a rumor?

6 woman tag? Nah.

Ronda, Shayna, Marina, and Jessamyn vs Nikki Bella, Brie Bella, Alexa Bliss, and Mickie James.

Sad thing is, I can easily see WWE doing that because LOOK AT ALL THOSE MAINSTREAM STARS IN ONE MATCH.

The most likely option is that the feud will transition into Miz winning the title at the Rumble and Bryan beating him at Wrestlemania.

Sure, it's insane that Bryan got a clean win in this amount of time if that's where we're building towards, but that's where we are.

Bryan's title shot's already been confirmed for the Saudi show, my guess is Miz interferes in the match that's going to be in the middle of the card because Styles couldn't even main event against Brock, he and Bryan are getting nowhere near the real stars of the night, Reigns/Braun/Brock and DX/Bros of Destruction

Dave talked about it on twitter, but apparently Vince has control of all the matches on the card so I wouldn't set your expectations too high for those matches. Because if anything, Vince will kneecap any match that he thinks would be a threat to what he wants people actually talking about (Ronda vs Nikki).

Probably to have Trish carry most of the match as the face in peril then have Lita do a bad moonsault to get the win.

I love Lita, but man her moonsault always makes me cringe. She gets no air on it whatsoever and it always looks like she's so close to breaking her spine. Just jump! Jump then flip!

Very unexcited for Evolution. Going to have to setup another Network burner account since my last one expired on Saturday, because I want to keep watching the MYC and at least see the finals of that and whatever NXT match is going to be at Evolution, but overall the show is disappointing. I don't know what I was expecting, since this is the same formula used for all of the big shows like Mania every year but I guess I hoped it would be more centered on new/upcoming talent.

They literally cannot think about a PPV until the last one is over.

The only reason they can kind of do this with Evolution and Crown Jewel is because one is all men and the other is all women . It's like they are just building up to one long 8 hour PPV
