Just started this thread to note that some news sources, including Cleveland.com for whatever reason, are reporting that Paige will return tonight. I think there was some scuttlebutt on Reddit too that Paige and Del Rio also split recently. Paige has been on twitter too thanking some of the talent for helping her get back in ring shape, so, whether or not it happens tonight, her return seems imminent.

 

I'm half-curious about which direction they'll go in with her upon her return - on one hand, the WWE could bring her back just to have her in a role not dissimilar to Mickie James or Alicia Fox, essentially just there to put over others but isn't she also the basis of a major movie they have in the works? If she's part of the promotion, one would assume they'd want to keep her somewhat over and popular. Also, while I never cared for her, she might get a huge response (as many talents do upon their return) and if she can maintain that level of fan enthusiasm, the WWE not capitalizing on her popularity would be them cutting off their nose to spite their face, right? 

 

Or she gets another Wellness Violation before 2018 or another sex tape leaks and the trainwreck will continue.

She's been training at the PC to get back in shape, so if it's not tonight it's a matter of time until she returns. I would expect them to keep her strong since the Rock is producing the movie about her. The real test will be after the movie's out and if she hasn't had another implosion in the meantime.

I hope she's starting to get her life and career on track and it'll be a real positive for the company for sticking by her if her comeback goes well, even if their primary concern was the movie.

 

I'm not sure what roster she'd be better off on. Both need an influx of new women to freshen up tbh.

Wow, another Steph browbeating promo to make the captain of the Raw team look like a kid being scolded by the principal,

Yikes a 20 minute promo just recapping the past few weeks. Shield stuff saved that segment

Roman's entrance and promo got entirely babyface reactions

If you had a drinking game where you took a shot every time someone said THE ORIGINAL SHIELD, youd be dead now.

I think we are getting HHH v Angle out of all this. I guess those reports last summer were right after all

As soon as Angle said replacement, I thought who's left, then Steph came out and I thought, oh it's HHH. What's the change tally up to now?

Orton's because he's the youngest.

So Angle/HHH/Braun/Joe/Finn-Cena/Shane/Orton/Nak/Roode. What the hell, why not? I'll be watching. Why not just do something completely insane that is usually something you would see on a video game. I love it. So many crazy matchups there when you think about it. I'm digging the WWE product with the only hesitation being how much trouble Owens and Zayn are in because they need to carry the SD heel side.

Got no problems with HHH being on the team but why did they really have to do all the browbeating to Kurt your team captain to get there? He looks like a fool now

I can only hope it leads to a moment where either he or Jordan snaps and gives HHH a vicious beating, but it's a Stephanie angle so it's unlikely anything like that happens and they'll just plod along to a tepid **1/2 match that goes 25 mins at Mania.

If anyone believed JJ was actually his son (I know, but go with me here) it ended when he just stood there like a doofus while Hunter killed him dead.

RE the WWE India show, apparently the ticket prices are astronomical. $700 dollars ringside for a house show is ridiculous in any market. So perhaps it isn't a bad mark on Jinder so much as the reality is that no one could draw two houses at those prices.

As weird as it feels to defend Jinder, I get the feeling he's going to get the blame despite this seeming like WWE misread the room big time.
