Just to be certain, if they have a series, is everyone ok with Miz winning at least one match during it? I think Bryan should win the feud in the end but Miz going over once is not something that I think is a bad idea.

 

If they do have a series I hope they don't do it for 3 or 4 straight PPVs. When Miz wins one he should do whatever he can to never face Bryan again, people would get so pissed at him it would be awesome.

Absolutely. I’d most prefer Miz winning MITB and having Bryan beat AJ at Summerslam or something, with Miz cashing in at some point later in the year. Could beat him in a rematch, too. Bryan wins the Rumble and finally beats him at Mania. The top of the card on SD is desperate for a refresh.

so what are the chances that Sami's segment with Lashley's "sisters" on Monday is this year's "Bayley:  This is Your Life" ?  Plus if it bombs I could see Sami taking most of the blame

i would think it takes a lot for Vince to completely sour on someone who checks off as many boxes that Cass does.


I wonder how overblown the Vince love rumors are.

I don't remember Test ever getting a major push. Cass is basically Test 2.0, but at least Test had some positives going for him.

 

 

He did a wedding angle with Steph and had a major match with Shane, can't get bigger pushes in Vince's mind than that. 

 

 

He actually delivered pretty big on the Shane match. I think it's kind of shitting on Test to compare Cass to him. Test could bust out some moves and be lead to look good before the injuries seemed to really slow him down around 2001. Cass is so bad that DB couldn't get much out of him.

I always thought Test was awesome. Even later on, his one off match with Brock at KOTR 02 was pretty fun, and he was a really great heel in '03 during the Steiner/Stacy feud.

What I actually said:

"Cass is basically Test 2.0, but at least Test had some positives going for him."

 

You can't deny the similar looks, lack of charisma, etc. But yes, Test was much better than Cass.

Yeah, I think Test was lacking a little in charisma. I think he had some potential in 1999 but he never recovered from that HHH swerve and the injuries seemed to start piling up.

Well, I always heard that was a Russo call because they needed someone who looked like Triple H from behind. Even if McMahon made that decision, it's not exactly a major vote of confidence.

 

 

Not sure if I'm making it up, but wasn't Test pretty tight with Shane? They seemed to be linked together pretty often and I think I always remember reports that Shane would go to bat for him. Personally never minded Test, not much charisma - although he did play a great heel douchebag when he was with Stacy - if you go back and watch his run from the autumn to the end of 2001 as a sort of enforcer for the Alliance then there's some really good stuff. He even has a fairly decent match with Kane on PPV during that period.

Shane thought Test should lead WCW during the Invasion. It was around this time that it became clear that he didnt have a strong booking mind.

So, Steph is gonna screw Rousey and Jax is gonna be the "Corporate Champ", right?

WTF are they doing with Braun? Random team with Lashley, entering MITB, random team with Finn... It seems they really have no idea what they're doing there.

 

i'd have him win at MITB and have him want to cash in the same night, not caring if Brock isn't there. That could be interesting.

 

That's my guess, because they've completed taken the pedal off him, and now everybody is on Seth's jock.

When is RAW's TV negotiation rights deal period? And when does it end?

 

I think all of that plays into this booking. On the one hand, you can see Ronda winning the title and being like Austin post-wm14 with Steph. On the other hand, I can see WWE being WWE and how Steph does not historically look like the loser in the same 3-1 ratio that Vince did. Even her being retconned into a puppet master or something makes me suspicious about how this will play out long-term.

 

My hunch, without more info, is that you're right and they'll try to position Rousey like Austin was for WM15.
