To be fair, the show was much better because of those changes.

Both RAW and Smsckdown have really improved the last couple of weeks, but it's easier to concentrate on ratings and bitch about the show than actually enjoy it. I don't say this to be a shill or an apologist, but the abuse thrown Vince's way for the slightest things wrong is just too extreme and top-heavy to take seriously anymore. People just want to hate the company regardless.

People's obsessions with ratings and box office are just as bad as the disconnect between critic and audience. Low ratings don't always mean a bad show, and a cushy box office doesn't mean a good movie.

If you mean Marko Stunt, he'd probably be used in comedy matches or in some small degree. If the dude can go though, what's stopping him.

Either way the 24/7 title was stupid from day one. RTruth kinda made it funny but now that it's off him, it's not even worth the screen time it's on.

Its in his best interest. After a certain point and having to do all the prep for a match it could physically mess him up. His last outing against Cena did as much. I could see him doing a one off against Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania if health and scheduling can be worked out.

While I'm glad to see the Goddess Alexa Bliss holding a title again, I feel sorry for Asuka and Kairi. WWE doesn't seem to have any big plans for them.

The really good thing about that is Nikki Cross has a title now.

Yeah, that too. Really liking their story. I guess it will take a while for them to break up still. And when it happens I wonder who will backstab who. Gonna guess Alexa will finally throw her away and say something like "I no longer need you", but maybe it's gonna be Nikki and Alexa will turn face, who knows.

Meh show so far. Buzz Lightyear Alexa is the highest point so far:

Spoiler:


Also, a middle-aged Goldberg pumped up the crowd in 2019. That says a lot about WWE's current situation.

Vince seemingly likes taking shots at Chad Gable's height so much that the company have trademarked a potential new name for him, "Shorty G"

And at the NXT TV Tapings

Street Profits lost the tag titles to Undisputed Era, all that's left now is for Dream to lose his belt to them and Cole's prophecy for the year will be fulfilled

I thought Jose/Roman already had two years before his contract expired? Was this an extension? I know he was talking about what he might do once his contract expires and not wanting to wrestle his whole life. It may have been a negotiation ploy. Though its nice to see his loyalty to the company in trying times. He and Colby/Seth are definitely the top guys and don't seem to have the same creative frustration as their former Shield brother though they were pushed and he while was not to the same height.

Is it just me, as a casual observer, but Daniel Bryan in jerk mode and Dolph Ziggler in jerk mode pretty much the same? Both the indie darling and technical wrestler smaller in frame and not covered in tattoos, overlooked overall to be top names in the company wanting to be recognized for their talent go heel.

Yep, just in time to rival AEW. So transparent.

A major blow to AEW...Moxley has an elbow infection and has to have surgery, meaning his match with Omega is off

AEW interests me, but I took a quick look at their roster, and I don't know like 80% of the wrestlers. They're probably people who've worked for Japanese companies, ROH, CZW and other indies which I don't watch. SO I have no idea what to expect out of the product.

Yes but now PAC is finally back and he'll have the match with Omega. Could potentially be a better match than Moxley especially since people have been waiting since Double or Nothing to see PAC step into the AEW ring.

A hell of a good time with fresh new talent and at times, a bit of shocking violence compared to WWE.

However it seems they like to reserve their more comedic matches during the Buy-In, so if that's not your thing, don't let the Buy In matches scare you off. The actual event itself will knock your sucks off regardless of not knowing anyone
