    Is the empire crumbling before our eyes?

    So it sounds like they are repeating the Daniel Bryan story yet again? Bryan getting squashed in seconds at WM 28 by Sheamus. Although Bryan was a heel then and wouldn't officially turn face till that fall

    Yup, PWI is reporting Becky is going to be the top heel in th women's division on Smackdown. so yeah, there's no way she is getting booed, right? Fans love her

    Brock/Roman at the next blood money show in October? Although already did that one at a Saudi show in 2018

    Wait what though, haven't they been building up Bianca has a dominant champion the past 4/5 months?

    Summerslam 2021

    Becky was supposed to come back in October but I guess with all that's gone down recently they thought they had to smash the Becky emergency glass case

    Slightly off topic I guess but I can remember Meltz in late 2013/early 2014 making ominous/cryptic statements about Punk and Bryan not being as over as it seemed on tv. I think wwe probably leaked that to Dave because they knew there would be a fan backlash for Bryan not being scheduled for a main event match for Mania 30 ( or Punk either I guess). They wanted to quell the fan revolt before it started. Didn't work but I think that was their plan

    "Punk wasn't over as much as he thought he was" or "Punk wasn't as over as Cena". i can remember back in 2014 Meltz saying he was told those exact things by .WWE higher ups (sources) so yeah it was just .Roman parroting what the company line has been for years. people will probably forget about this tomorrow anyway

    Dave Meltzer stuff

    Also the wwe hardcores are mad at Dave (as usual) because he said the big SD number was artificially propped up by the preseason NFL games

    Loss has a great thread on twitter about the changes being made to NXT and how it relates to WWE's thought process/philosophy since the beginning of the last decade. great stuff

    Wonder if this will affect the women's division as well. Will they go back to the divas era or a combination of the divas/modern era? Or stay course?

    As already mentioned they still have a bunch of big guys on the main roster that they haven't been able to make stars so even with NXT now being about muscleheads I don't think it's guaranteed anything really changes

    WWE TV 08/02 - 08/08 Olympic Wrestling is dope

    According to twitter the "CM Punk" chants already started during the Main Event tapings

    Another legend that Orton beat up in 2020 ends up in AEW. Only HBK remains. Matt Hardy, Christian, Big Show, Flair Mark Henry as well!

    Dave Meltzer stuff

    That somehow led him into discussing JCP and the end of the Monday Night Wars. Classic, classic Dave.

    Sean Ross Sapp has confirmed/backed the "budget cuts" story as well

    The last two Universal champions before Roman are no longer in the company

    According to PWI, people are "shocked" backstage over Wyatt's release. As mentioned before Alexa seemed to take it pretty bad as she seemed shook up over it

    I think that's Nick Khan. Before wwe tried not to release anyone who was getting tv time or was getting pushed to any degree. Khan convinced them it doesn't matter either way

    Alexa seems pretty shaken up over this on twitter. Seems they were close

    Yeah he's apparently had some mental health issues lately. Hope he's okay

    WWE TV 07/26 - 08/01 The Olympic Games are a wonderful event

    Meltzer said on WOR that Nikki was booed at the house shows over the weekend. See if it spills over to tv

    Apparently the next Saudi blood money show will be in October. Same month as the Queen of the Ring show

    Comments that don't warrant a thread - Part 4

    I know it's not his fault or fair but Roman's 2015-2020 babyface push is going to have the "wwe not listening to its fan base" stigma attached to it. The fans highjacking of the wm 34 main event seemed to be the low/high point of that. The whole "Brock is Vince's boy and the wwe brass are against Roman" was so terrible as no one bought it for a second. The reaction to the 34 main event was a testament to that. also if Roman won the title at 31 the plan was for him to feud with Kane and Big Show afterwards. Yes better than the Bray stuff but Big Show and Kane were beyond stale at that point.
