    WWE TV 6/28-7/4 Euro 2020 is pro wrestling

    Bianca Belair is a 100% PC wrestler. So is her husband, Montez Ford.

    Is the empire crumbling before our eyes?

    Nia Jax has talked about being co-workers making fun of her body with allusions of someone filming her while getting dressed. I think Andrade said something similar happening to Charlotte in the big interview he gave. Obviously don't know if any of this is connected. But there seems to be a Peeping Tom problem with a couple of WWE folk. (shudders)

    That's what will happen once Vince retires or passes away. Nick Khan and Stephanie will either run WWE together or set up a sale. If they keep WWE, HHH will be sent to NXT Land and never be part of of the big kids' table. That much is becoming clear.

    WWE TV 05/03 - 05/09 Big Roman made little Bryan humble.

    The Bellas are the cornerstones for WWE's reality show empire. Bryan has been pulling in two separate checks as a result, both as a wrestler and a performer on Total Divas/Total Bellas. So that's something to consider. Also, he may just want to go home for a while and spend more time with his wife and kids.

    Keith became double champ in NXT at Great American Bash (July 2020). He moved to RAW in August. He was featured often until he went off TV in February, for what most thought was injury-related. He's posted a couple of vague messages on Twitter, but has been quiet otherwise. I wouldn't think his Speaking Out story would have anything to do with his absence. The timing seems off. I certainly hope that's not the case here.

    True, but I think it's more of Dream not being part of the "in" crowd beyond the allegations. Austin Theory was accused of associating with a 13-year-old girl and seems to be doing fine among his peers. Don't think his situation was as bad as Dream, but still. Probably didn't help that Dream felt like a teacher's pet. Which was understandable. His character work made him stand out especially during that period of NXT. Triple H and HBK clearly anticipated big things for him.

    Every time I see something from Xia Brookside, it becomes more clear that she's hopelessly ignorant.. Karrion Kross attended some meeting with Drake a while back. A picture from the meeting circulated on Twitter for a bit. Nia Jax and Bobby Fish seem to be Q or at least Q-adjacent. The Chasyn Rance situation is beyond my scope of thinking. Why anyone would willingly be seen with a registered child molester is on a level I hope to never reach. With Riddle/Dream/Devlin, it's murky. I wouldn't cry if any or all of them got a pink slip. But if they aren't being sought by the legal system or admit to anything like a few did last year, it gets cloudy. I suspect with someone like Dream, they'll let their contracts quietly expire. Riddle is still dealing with some civil stuff relating to his mess, but no one else even has that going on, AFAIK. With how he's getting WWE in quick order, I wouldn't be surprised if Nick Khan told Hunter to get his NXT children in line soon. Raw and Smackdown have their weirdos too, but the PC is overrun by them.

    WWE TV 03/29 - 04/04 It sucks to be Brazilian

    Natalya is the veteran who can have solid-to-good matches with almost anyone. Her husband, Tyson Kidd, is a match producer and quite good at it. They have a wrestling school of sorts where several of the women go to get reps/more training during their down time. And don't forget how poorly WWE handled Tyson's broken neck from a few years ago. There are plenty of reasons for why Nattie is around. Tamina seems to be a den mother of sorts for the women's locker room, going by what some have said in interviews. So she stays. Gets a couple of mini angles every year and collects her checks.

    They refuse to fully separate the women's tag scene from the singles' titles, so we have stories and wrestlers overlapping when it's unnecessary. I suppose it comes down to who they trust vs who they don't. It's clear who falls where. Though that doesn't explain not having Bayley booked for WrestleMania, along with a few others being on the sidelines when they can have good matches and cut solid promos.

    You posted it right behind me asking about the topic that you decided to be critical about. I will indeed go on.

    I was asking a question, but thanks for your condescending charm.

    Don't most NXT folk pick their own names? Maybe Taya wants to keep it separate from NXT to keep it cleaner if things don't work out. My guess is Morrison and Taya are looking at Miz and Maryse as templates to become part of the reality show/influencer circuit. If they think being part of the WWE/NXT circle helps them in that goal, they'll at least give it a look, including name changes.

    AEW Dynamite - March 31, 2021

    The dud of a finale at Revolution seems to have hurt, but I'd also wager the Omega vs Impact story isn't going over like they had hoped. The Christian reveal certainly didn't help.

    WWE TV 03/22 - 03/28 Roman never tapped

    Roman-Edge being bad feels like a reach. If Edge can go 50+ minutes with Orton and look fine, I'm sure he'd be OK working with Roman for half that long. I think it's a combination of Vince wanting to shake up the status quo, along with Christian's departure changing their plans. They clearly were going to do some sort of tag match at Fastlane, along with Roman likely beating Christian to a pulp at some point to get heat. If they decide to take the belt off him, what does Roman do in the meantime? Him retaining seems the way to go. Roman can have short feuds with Cesaro and Nakamura leading into his SummerSlam program. Whenever he does lose the title, it needs to be in an one-on-one match.

    WWE TV 03/01 - 03/07 Lashley please win this title

    Lee was hot coming off that final sequence with Roman at Survivor Series 2019. He should have been pushed to the NXT title from that. Lee won the North American title not long after, but you could feel his momentum wane. They make him double champ at Great American Bash, but had him vacate the NA title in two weeks, then essentially get squashed by Karrion Kross the next month for the other title. Just bad choices all around. There was a way to get Lee to RAW without taking that route. That is on Hunter. As for not understanding the main roster style--once Lee nearly broke his neck on that over the top rope leap he did during a match with McIntyre, him being retooled was a foregone conclusion.
