We all want him to stay away lol.Need to watch takeover as well. Was just too busy with schoolwork to catch it live. I did check spoilers and it for sure seems worth watching. Rod Strong is one heck of a worker and its not shocking he and Riddle had a steller match. Basically Gargano is the same way, one heck of a worker. Sadly neither have any personality. Gargano was just going to be a perineal jobber until the great Tammaso Ciampa can into being.
No doubt the effort was put forth to show that WWE/NXT can offer up a product in the ring alternative to AEW.
I don't think they can move it off the network but if network threw enough money at it Vince puts it on.
When WWE first bought ECW, Shane's intention was to operate ECW as a web show and keep it close to the same product. Then a network tossed money (Scfy I think) at it and Vince put it on TV and tamed the product down.
I sure HHH wants Vince to stay away from NXT
I mean that is through process right? Plus they can use them for house shows.And how many are unused in the WWE? As if by hoarding talent it prevents other promotions from growing.
Somebody forgot to tell him that the overrun was cut down. Just felt very amateur and because I'm such a grouch these days it makes me feel like they think that it doesn't mean anything. They can just get away with it because they are WWE. But also not a mistake that would be made if all hands are on deck.Yes, and I was like wtf
Most solid Raw for some time, hopefully next week is better, then the next week etc, and an upward trend starts.This whole Brock briefcase thing as been an absolute cluster eff. First the way he won was dumb. Then for some reason he didn't know you could wait a year to cash in even though that's how seth won the title a few years back from him. The Stephanie threatens to fire if he doesn't cash in immediately. Then when he Seth comatose and dead he doesn't cash the case in but waits for Friday? If Brock is heel and the belt is essentially being gifted to him he cashes it in. And like Baileys cash in they don't even make the champ recover and stand up any more so he coulda tossed Seth in the ring cashed it in and been the champ. Now when they wrestle on the Saudi show itll be Seth selling injuries for the entire time and probably catch Brock with a stomp (outta nowhere) for the win. Terrible writing.
The rest of Raw I felt was pretty good. orton seems invested in this match with trips, and invested Orton is always great. They set up the Braun and Bobby thing with a perfect old school arm-wrestling match and loser shenanigans.
Carmella superkicking Drake to let truth escape was good, and at least these 24/7 segments offer a nice change of pace.
I wonder what Vince thought of the Vince with devil horns puppet on Wyatt's segment?
Maybe Bliss and Cross for a tag team and win those belts. It seems like that is the direction they are heading.
I was just thinking for sure Saudi Arabia. But an interesting Swerve would be for it to happen on SD on FOX and for him to cash in on that champ and not the raw champ. So good point.Any thoughts that Brock's Friday may be in reference to Smackdown on Fox?
AXS will show his title match friday at 8 pm before LFA MMA.Jon Moxley is now the post Wrestlemania era Becky Lynch. Can't walk down any street without hearing more Moxley stories. He won the NJPW United States title. He's on fire!
Dude has always looked good until he actually ever had to anything longer than 2 minutes.Interesting to see Goldberg back, he looks phenomenal for his age.
That's pretty much how all underdog stories go. The path to the top is interesting and fun, but what happens when you get there not so much.Dl'd wrong version of raw and watched smackdown first. Koffi is ok but jesus, worst intro ever. Victim with the belt, got really old, really fast.
Even bliss was annoying. Why is allistar talking every week for 2mins about nothing? Sullivan needs a longer interview, lol. Goldturd has always been trash.
Sd was 2-10 this week
