I skipped all the SD posts, but I just started watching RAW. I far prefer the idea that the GMs negotiate the trades to when they did the Its Random! gimmick.

Kurt made Billy King look like Danny Ainge with the trades he made.

You know, I could actually do with a Jeff Hardy WWE Title run.


Been saying that since last Mania! Hope we get one

I thought Asuka was already from SDL ever since she declared her interest on fighting Charlotte, so not sure what's the big surprise here. Hope we get Nikki Cross in this division, too.
 
Also, DB vs Cass sounds like a good feud. As long as Cassidy doesn't give Bryan a concussion, it sounds pretty good on paper.
 
 
ALSO ALSO: I'm sick and tired of Charlotte. She beat the entirety of the Riot Squad and is on her way on beating both the Iconics and Absolution. Fuck that shit.


The Riott Squad was terrible. Looked like low-rent Mickey Mouse jobbers.

I will happily eat crow. Tonight was a helluva Smackdown. We got three Smackdowns last year in New England, this one destroyed those by a country mile. Amazing show! Smackdown is so loaded. Watching the GOATs team up live was incredible. Seeing AJ wrestle live is always a treat but my God a Daniel Bryan hot tag!

Samoa Joe is such a great promo, Benjamin vs Jeff Hardy was better than it should be. Did "This is Awful" chants during the Charlotte make TV? They finally found a worse chant than "This is awesome". Charlottes chops have improved leaps & bounds. Great heeling from Peyton. They could have not gone back to the armbar so much. It was a mediocre match calling it awful is a gross overstatement.

There's just so much Ruby can do with her partners, but being fed on a weekly basis to Charlotte with zero rhyme or reason and doing absolutely nothing since their debut did no favors.

 

Even Absolution, as unfortunate as their stint was since Paige had to retire, looked better (although Ronda pretty much killing any credibility Deville could've had is Not Good).

 

In the end, it's just a shame because they are not using great talent nor building new ones.

Holy shit at Smackdown. Their PPVs should have some fantastic matches without even trying.

EDIT: Oh shit, they scrapped them! One more cosmic joke: finally give Smackdown a roster that could sustain their own PPVs and then stop them

A Smackdown Six could be possible now.

 

AJ, Bryan, Nak, Joe, Orton, Almas. Book it.

 

AJ & Bryan could be the Angle/Benoit of today. Pair off Orton & Joe and Almas & Nak.

I can see Vince thinking "if we move everyone the fans like to Smackdown, NOW they have to cheer Roman goddammit!"

 

Exactly what I thought.  :lol:

Jesus christ, the way Raw was screwed in this, i'm surprised the shows didn't air on some porn site...

 

but, seriously, this week has made my decision to go watch SDL next month SO much easier, and I am so hyped for this now.

Hasnt Vince learned about putting Brywn against one of his Ideal guys? They got about 6 more months before his contract is up. So many batter pairings for him and you choose Cass, Corban is way better fit that Big Cass right now.


Dude, he isn’t going anywhere.

Im all for the 2018 Jeff Hardy revival run, but he still has two strikes and already got a DWI this year. As boring as Orton is, at least you can be reasonably sure you wont wake up to read about him getting arrested. I have a feeling theres going to be a ceiling on how much Jeff gets pushed because of that.

As there should be. Plus, he is a star from a previous era. 

 

Still, he should be pushed as important -- the #3 babyface spot seems really ideal for him, and I think he should be in occasional main events since he always gets over and people will always buy him as a challenger. He also seems like the ideal guy to make Almas.

Ok, looking at the move and assuming male heels for male heels, female faces for female faces, etc.. these are the trades:

 

Natalya for Asuka

 

Riot Squad for Absolution

 

Breezango & Ascension for The Bar & Gallows/Anderson

 

Bobby Roode, Zack Ryder, & Chad Gable for Jeff Hardy & R-Truth\

 

Baron Corbin, Jinder Mahal, Mojo Rawley, Dolph Ziggler, & Mike Kanellis for Samoa Joe, The Miz, & Big Cass

 

These are Adam Larsson for Taylor Hall level of shitty trades.

Tozawa and Itami against the Lucha House Party from 205 Live last night was just awesome.  Great tornado tag with huge spots, great nearfalls and teases, and really fantastic character work and dynamics that brought it all together.  I really might have to watch 205 Live every week now.

You should, the show has been amazing since Enzo left. The slow build to that tag feud has been great. I'm sure it will continue to escalate from here.

I still don't understand why they took Tozawa out of Titus World Wide, it was over.
