    Sheamaro aren't winning, I am pretty sure they are waiting for Revival to come back to take the belts of Hardys.
    As much as I like the Revival and I'm aware Sheasaro more or less took their slot with Dash getting injured, this would be the wrong booking decision right now. Sheasaro would be dead in the water after turning and being built up just to lose again, the Tag Division would have no viable faces outside of the Hardyz.

    Additionally the Hardyz as a nostalgia act have a limited shelf life so it's better to have Sheasaro go over here to give Matt a catalyst to change into the full broken gimmick sooner rather than later (Jeff is going to be over as fuck regardless and is likely getting a world title push in the future so he could change with Matt but he doesn't necessarily have to). You can then have them regain the titles again the following PPV with their new Broken powers.

    After this and the rematch, then you have the Hardyz feud with the Revival, have Revival go over and then move both Hardyz members into singles.

    Matt cannot go anymore. Sheamus couldn't get quality out of him. The hardyz work better in tags.

    I would love to see Lesnar ragdoll jeff again

    Besides, it seems that they're already going all in in bringing the Broken Universe back. Stalling it to wait for the Revival would do more harm than good right now.

    I wonder what happens with rowan and harper

    Those two have a five star match against the usos

    I can see those two as the equivalent of sheasaro

    I just loved how they work. Pissed we never got that match with the dudleyz

    I dislike seeing Rowan hold Luke back, creative does that enough. Always stop and go with Luke singles runs, he just needs time to do it and they always have him in short bursts before pairing him back with Bray or Rowan.

    SmackDown tag division is in a holding pattern until the New Day is ready. Granted it's not a bad one since we got to see midcard teams fight it out for the right to face the Usos. But any more involved programs are likely not happening anytime soon.

    CODY is having wcw saturday night level matches everywhere. He lacks motivation or fire really. His best match so far is the one with Juice. He is a 3 star machine.

    I hope he steps it up at the g-1. But we have not seen the blocks yet.

    Have a feeling on certain roh/indy talents. I think Cole comes to nxt before the influx of guys like kyle o'reilly, bobby fish, & the women/europeans. I think wwe will bring in Keith Lee based on size, look, athleticism, and promo. Then push him huge in nxt, until vince sees him then brings him up.

    Once Season 3 of LU ends penta, fenix, and ricochet are wwe bound.

    I think wwe sends nxt guys to the uk show to develop and brings those guys to takeovers. Since wwe: uk is being shopped around with interests from itv and other channels. since the wos tapings have been postponed indefinitely. And progress/icw are doing the wwn/evolve deal with wwe. I think wwe may have a network show on uk tv.

    That creates some interesting scenarios as wwe would want their uk brand to flourish.

    Cause Vince gets hyped by new things, then gets bored very quickly.

    Because giving the Cruiserweights a decent time slot (i.e. before SD Live, bumping that show back an hour) would actually make sense and disprove Vince's idea that smaller wrestlers are bad and hosses are good.

    I would take Jinder as champ over Orton at this moment tbh. Apparently SD was heavily edited and there were a ton of We Want Curry chants towards Jinder.

    I am just saying Curry is delicious I don't understand the editing, I will take it with my fried chicken and watermelon.

    Naomi that was terrible.

    205 live will likely be cancelled by the end of the year. neville is trying to keep the cruiserweights afloat (and he's done a great job) but its just not enough.

    Are they doing everything they can to bury Shinsuke? This artist shit has to stop, King of Strong Style worked fine.

    Smackdown creative is focusing on the wrong aspects of Shinsuke. They are selling him on his quirkness and being eccentric.

    The Maharaja of Curry can be a better gimmick for Jinder. They are wasting Nakamura on Ziggler. Gives me flashes of the Corbin Ziggler never ending feud. Dolph aint no Miz.

    Ward and Dogg are still in charge however and you can still see their style on the show (such as more focus on the belts). It's probably just Vince being Vince and them having to change things up to satisfy his whims.

    Is it possible that Vince is just getting more senile and is starting to be unable to tell which is RAW and which is Smackdown?

    Seeing as how Vince is doing less and less traveling with the product these days, I'd say it's safe to assume that time is finally catching up to him.

    They should end the raw exclusivity. SDL would be hungry to work with them.

    The whole Raw exlusivity thing is kinda funny when you consider that some of their segments are clearly shot on the SDL set, after SDL.

    Yeah, they look to be made for each other. Putting it before SDL and then returning Talking Smack back to its original time slot would make for a great watching experience. Most people tend to get burnt out post the main event.

    Probably Balor? Bray didn't continue his program with him this raw, or did he?

    It can still be "live" and have a better crowd as a pre-show

    It makes no sense why it isn't the rAw pre-show and sd gets main event for their midcarders

    They can't build shinsuke as king of strong style because he has not wrestled yet. This artist shit is whack.

    I think his charisma sells him. Just wait for him to get overexposed on sd

    All the americans/europeans ie white people saying omega should be champ to expand new japan are fucking dumb.

    New Japan is backing Okada as the ace and the only guy who can challenge him in money is Naito.

    Okada is the face njpw wants to push during their expansion because he is the man in the promotion. He is their Roman Reigns. Omega would not push them as this different wrestling brand. Plus how would a company called new japan push their white champion. No. New Japan sold out shows because of okada. Those long beach shows sold out because of new japan is a strong brand.

    Also Omega unwilling to commit is why njpw has not given the belt to him.

    To give kenny the belt for the expansion is the equivalent of making Scarlett Johanson the lead character in ghost in the shell

    SD tag teams look to finally be exciting now that the Usos have turned heel. Good choice since the New Day would have eclipsed them if they remained face. All that needs to happen now is for them to be as entertaining as they were with the 12 days thing.
