Great Miz promo to start, and this six-man is tons of fun so far. 

 

No word on Braun's whereabouts yet.

He died last night.

The main thing to learn from the Smackdown riot is that Becky Lynch is the baddest person on the Smackdown roster,  Chad Gable really really wanted to beat the crap out of Jason Jordan, and Brock Lesnar doesn't give 2 shits about any of this stuff

I loved the idea of this angle but it really hammered home how much of the SD roster has been wasted. Nothing says scary invading group less than Ty Dillinger and Dolph Ziggler trying to be badass.

Can’t wait to find out what Baron Corbin has to say for himself! Why did the lone wolf join the rest of the roster in the attack??

I didn't see Raw.  Is it true that Finn Balor (who beat AJ Styles at the PPV on Sunday) jobbed to Kane?!

I have no idea why WWE likes to run a battle for brand supremacy storyline seemingly every year. The motivations of the participants never make much sense and there's never anything truly at stake. Although I suppose this time is a change of pace since it's usually Raw that's positioned as the heel brand.

Can somebody explain to me the point of the Asuka/Emma rematch last night?

Besides that they have no other RAW jobber women than I have no idea.  it would smarter to just bring in women from the Mae Young Classic as easy victims.  but if you have to use RAW talent then the only other person would be Dana Brooke and maybe Mickie James.

They gave Nia Jax jobbers when she got called up.

What makes it worse is that she didn't just run through Emma in either match. I know she's not exactly the most formidable member of the division, but she did "win" the opportunity to face Asuka in her debut match. So theoretically, even more than just destroying a jobber, laying the smackdown on Emma could have had some positive results. Instead we got this murky middle ground where, yeah, she won both matches, but she didn't look good doing it.

For fuck's sake. What I said about Kane yesterday. Again.

I don't remember if it was at the PPV or on RAW (which I watched on Hulu) but Michael Cole said something along the lines of "Kane is one of the best of all-time!" and I audibly said "eww."

 

Never been a good promo. Not a great worker. His entire gimmick is piggy-backing off of the success of The Undertaker. Pre-Kane he was awful. I don't get their love for the character/gimmick. I'm sure Glen Jacobs is a great dude, by all accounts he seems to be, but holy hell do I not want to see him on WWE programming anymore. He was stale a goddamn decade ago. Now it's like a joke that never ends.

 

If you didn't see it, on RAW, Balor went up top for the double stomp. Kane sat-up and grabbed him by the throat, dragged him down from the top and Chokeslammed him. Picked him up and did it again. Picked him up and did it a third time. 1-2-3 clean in the middle. :-/

Isn't he the only hold over from the attitude era?  Seems to be how they treat all the wrestlers from the era.

Big Show, HHH, sort of Jericho, and I have no idea if Mark Henry officially retired or not. The Hardys returned at Wrestlemania this year too, on the same show where the Undertaker finally retired.

The first couple years of the Kane gimmick were great, but a lot of that was due to being in angles with Taker/Foley/Bearer. Once he was wacky tag partners with X Pac, that was pretty much the end anything good. 

 

 

If they insist on keeping him around, having him in a non wrestling role might not be a bad thing. Director of Operations Kane was fun for a a while.

I actually liked the Kane/Strowman stuff at TLC as it kinda reminded me of Kane as Jacob Goodnight. I'd also second the opinion that Kane is kind of proof of the Great Match Theory in that, as good as he might be, as well-respected as he may be in the lockerroom, the guy has had 20 years in this character and I don't think I could name a single Great Match he's been in. A hot angle here or there, sure, but a really great match? I can't name one off-hand. Which is why I liked the TLC performance - it was cartoonishly evil and that, to me, is where Kane can offer something different on the card. As a holdover feud for Strowman, it's not the worst idea.

But less is more with him and has been for awhile now. I was okay with him feuding with Strowman as long as the build-up was kept to just Kane trying more and more elaborately destructive ways to destroy him in non-match scenarios (the chair burial, the garbage truck), but beating Balor? Why? It doesn't add heat to his Strowman feud and I was under the impression that Balor beating Styles was supposed to revitalize him after months of the shitty Wyatt feud.

Is WWE turning into having a bunch of babies on the roster?

 

Sports Illustrated's  writer Justin Barrasso reports on the real potential reason why Nia Jax has been absent lately. Reportedly, Nia Jax was booked lose clean to Sasha Banks at the WWE TLC Pay Per View and she, according to Sports Illustrated, "balked at the idea". Nia also called her cousin in real life, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, for advice and The Rock "encouraged her to walk away if she was unhappy". Nia then either walked out or sought some sort of leave of absence from the company.
