WWE TV 04/05 - 04/11 Eden Hazard has gone missing since 2018 what happened to him

WALTER should honestly squash Ciampa in 2 mins

My thought exactly, but that already hasn't happened.

The mentality that WWE seemingly still has as it pertains to the women is an issue. They might use the women more but they still treat them like they're minis, or the cruiserweight division. Like they're afraid to have "too many" on a card or something. What's wrong with having another segment or match with the women if those women are over & doing good stuff? For that matter, what's wrong with cutting a shitty segment with the men for an additional segment with the women?

You have Sasha, Bianca, Asuka, Bayley, Rhea, Charlotte... It's OK if that's not all confined into just one RAW segment & one Smackdown segment. Especially if they're getting back both Becky & Ronda too. 

Just point the fucking camera at people that shine, goddamn.

Holy fucking shit... This fucking company!

Did they really end Franky Monet (Taya Valkyrie)'s vignette with "See You Next Tuesday"?

Don't they realize what that's a euphemism for?

Speaking of WWE's booking of their women, given the Wednesday Night Wars end tonight, I think it's fair to say that NXT lost the war when they failed to follow up on Rhea's title win. They should have made the entire show revolve around her after that. 1998 Steve Austin level

I wouldn't go that far. She was never that over, and still isn't.

But focusing the show on the perpetually ice cold Charlotte surely wasn't the solution either. 

I get the idea behind it - infuse NXT some much-needed star-power and something something "fresh" - but Charlotte was never going to excite anyone.

She's a tremendous wrestler, but she's not someone people have ever clamored to see.

This is the same company that had to change the name of a main roster women's faction because it was the same as a porn site, so maybe not?

This will mean something to very few people, like @ButchReedMark and @ohtani's jacket and @Dav'oh, but of all things, this reminded me of when Andrew Strauss did not realise he was still on air while doing commentary for a special Lord's cricket match and called Kevin Pietersen a cunt on national TV

Oh yeah, I totally forgot about the commercials. Sucks for USA Network-only viewers, but I guess they're probably not watching anyway since there's no Night 2 for them.

Again, I don't mean PWO. (Well, maybe you, because you're butthurt for no reason.)

Do me a favor:

Go to any wrestling site - heck, go to your favorite one - and look at the comments section for a few articles.

I rest my case!

This whole 'Everyone is an dumb, redneck, piece of shit, except us." deal is fucking awful. And it really seems like it's some weird self hate. "Boy, can you believe how DUMB (fill in the blank) is? Aren't WE smart?" is some weak sauce, man. 

DVDVR is a wonderful place for intelligent discussion, and I'm sure there are others in all the corners of all fandom online. Tearing down invisible people while saying, "Hey but not us, amirite?" is lame.

It's not a live blog, since I'm on the west coast and everyone saw TakeOver before me, but I'm still writing it up as I watch it:

Dunne/Kushida and the gauntlet match were terrible, but I thought WALTER/Ciampa was awesome. Ciampa is having a great year.

Except, I wasn't referring to other wrestling message boards, which you'd know if you actually read my post instead of skimming it. That would be a pretty silly argument from me, since I'm not on most of them, wouldn't it? (I do casually browse DVDVR and Wrestling Classics though, and I like both from what I've seen. The old Kayfabe Memories board was great too.)

BTW, no, my post wasn't some weird attempt to uplift me, us, and PWO (even though, yeah, PWO is great) while tearing others down. Like it or not, intelligent wrestling discourse is the minority. That's a simple statement of fact. 

Like I said, go to any popular wrestling website, click a few articles, and read the comments section. Again, I rest my case. (That's not even mentioning social media like Twitter, if you really want to dig down in the deepest dumps.)

I mean, what I'm saying is probably true of any fandom, but this is Pro Wrestling Only, so I'm not exactly going to start posting about Mandalorian fans or whatever, am I?

So anyway, NXT was pretty good. WALTER and Ciampa beat the piss out of each other, MSK got their big win, and Raquel got the rocket. I assume Io is going to be the "debut the day after Mania" pop this year.

The last three matches delivered in a way that NXT hasn’t for me personally in a long while. Io is absolutely fantastic and really should get the rocket strapped to her on the main roster. Really dug how WALTER/Ciampa was worked exactly how it should have been and it’s been long enough that I forgot at how good WALTER is at taking offence, selling incrementally while still retaining that presence and believability. I can take or leave Ciampa but thought he was great too. Got to think Vince sees big money in WALTER, if he even watches NXT anyway

This made me laugh for some reason.

Would have a very different meaning outside of wrestling.

For all of the "WWE-speak" everyone makes fun of, some of the fan-speak is pretty hilarious too if you ever stop to think about it. :lol:

I hope WALTER gets the rocket, but I could just as easily see Vince thinking "His midsection is too pudgy, damn it!" and/or "He's an extraordinary athlete, but he doesn't have the 'it-factor'. Maybe it's because he's Austrian?"

For one there is the "Walter does not want to move to the US" thing. Plus he has an accent, see how that "helped" Cesaro.

Also I like me a good 3.5 count. Io forgot to kick out in the main event (I rewound three times to make sure that the first count was not just the ref hitting the mat) but the ref reacted quickly enough and just continued counting.

Plus, Vince would pretty much make WALTER a German character. I mean, do you really think these people now where Austria is ? (German-speaking Swiss, yeah, forget it for Cesaro)

Pretty sure WALTER himself has debunked this several times already and said he was open to travel.

Well, Imperium has an oddly Nazi vibe as it is, so he's already halfway there.

Hitler was born is what is now Austria. But yeah, I know. I mean, WALTER already had that kind of gimmick in the indies anyway.

Apparently Jean Brassard has announced that he and Ray Rougeau are out as the French Commentary team due to "restructuring" because of Peacock.

Wow. Does that mean Agius/Chereau could be back ?
