    If the baby faces were truly loved, then everyone elses roles will go accordingly like the heels. Dean and bryan heel turns has them comically doing heel routines(dean moreso).

    I didnt think the audience were ready to boo bryan after him reassurecting his career. Aj wouldve made the better turn because he has lost alot of steam the last year.

    I think seth can manage his momentum but dean had a lot of good justifable reasons to turn on seth. I mean seth put his head through a cinderblock. Keeping seth face is the way to go but its hard to sympathize for him in this feud.

    Wwe really leans hard on the heels to lead the feuds.

    They got Asuka looking good ahead of TLC. Hopefully that match main events the PPV. I'm hoping for Asuka to grab the title and then maybe Becky wins the Rumble to fight Ronda Rousey at WM35. Also, I thought Mustafa Ali did great against Daniel Bryan. If they just let the wrestlers' in-ring action speak for itself along with simple and logical booking, they'd have so many over stars. TLC could be a good show, but we'll see lol.

    Drew Mcintyre seems to be one of the main things on raw storyline which makes me kinda happy but the show just plainly sucks. 205 live and NXT and NXT UK put on great content which just showe how Vince really doesn't know what to do when it comes to booking. I've heard multiple stories on him booking raw the dame afternoon and so on which sucks. I am hoping one day too see the script of a raw show leaked just to see what it looks like on paper because it's honestly horrible. Especially with the fact that they can't even have their main payperviews as great as their developmental.

    It's CRAZY to me that NXT Takeovers are soooo much better than main roster shows. They just need to let the talents' in-ring skills speak for themselves and just book logically. I'm hoping Triple H takes over the creative next decade and makes some BIG changes. And it's not like everything should be booked like NXT, Vince just makes some of the most baffling creative decisions.

    That rollins promo may be the most bizarre segment in recent memory. They really brought an ENTIRE show down just to spite a fake gm character. Corbin is not respected thats well established but there seems to be no other reasoning for it if everything is gonna be the same.

    Vince whats going on man?

    So Vince is gonna be at Raw on Monday. What do you guys think is up?

    I don’t know what’s planned, but my expectations are low af lol. I just hope the fans don’t cheer him. He deserves to get boo’d out of the building imo. YES, he has done soooo much for wrestling and they’re making more money than ever, but creatively, he needs to go.

    WOW! That NXT takeover was one of the best things I have watched. All the matches was great quality and shows the true reason why I love pro wrestling. With all the matches on the card none of the winners were predictable which is a bonus too. the tag match was a great start, and had some very great technical wrestling. Then WWE building up Devlins attack to then have Balor come out was a huge suprise, and really showcased some great storytelling in their match. The No Dq match had some brilliant spots and was very well structured with some great brutality with some big atheletes. Then there was the Toni/Rhea match whiched built up great emotion throughout the match to come off with my favourite at the moment toni storm winning. then the main event fully stole the show, so many near falls, great spots, great sequences and a really enjoyable watch - also was nice to see Walter too.

    Didn't find it as unpredictable as you did at all times but the tag match and women's title match swerved me I didn't think Rhea would drop the belt so soon but with Toni's build up it makes sense I guess. The rest however excluding Walter totally called it Balor's surprise being most obvious all the "I'm the best Irish wrestler in world" lines gave him up Mastiff vs Dennis was surprisingly good for a big man match props to Dennis for being able to keep Mastiff up and actually slam him and one of the less obvious ways of setting himself up for Mastiff to finish through the table sold the injuries great dude looked like he was just trying to get himself up not awkwardly positioning himself for the opponent but man that main event holy shit a few times I actually thought they had hurt themselves ffs idk what was happening on that top rope but they took enough falls from it yet another Takeover that makes you wonder what is wrong with RAW and SD's creative crew.

    Welp silver lining maybe this will open up a spot for Sanity or The Club but that's a shame just before a title match this weekend

    So, Roman Reigns is coming back on Monday to give an update. I hope he’s doing well in his recovery and hope to see him back. I wonder if he’s returning, where does this lead him for Mania.

    I'm excited to see roman too. Sucks how it is just to draw in viewers tho. WWE keep making bad choices and soon it is going to be unrepairable

    I feel you. They try to bring in the NXT guys but it’s not gonna fix any problems. They have so many guys that THEY’VE booked like crap which is why nobody gets over really. They just book for the moment with no plans. Dean should be KILLING it right now after that heel turn and look what happened. Shinsuke is an afterthought if when he had the US Title. I’m not even the biggest Rusev or Braun Strowman fan, but they deserve more than they got for how over they were. The list goes on.

    The show doesnt have any creative integrity. All their decisions are knee jerk reactions to ratings bumps. Which would mean for impossible coherency. The promos are designed to be vague because they don't really know what they're doing the following week.

    I’m not necessarily clamoring for Batista vs HHH, but the angle took me by surprise and was well done. Did not see that coming at all. Also, GREAT NEWS for Roman Reigns!!

    It might not be bad if Batista does what he didn't do the last run that being remember how to goddamn wrestle he was awful last run his spear was just sad as little as Kairi Sane is she has more impact than his did the last run

    Being that this is a HHH program, they will most likely exhaust all their year longs worth of creating writing energy into it. Theres that to look forward to but in the end of the day its two 50 year olds fighting because Batista needs to prove to Triple H again for some reason...?
