    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.

    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.

    I had to mute my tv because they let Charlotte talk again.

    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.

    i still firmly believe that some of the writers changed brands, it is the only logical explanation.

    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.

    So I guess if Braun isn't cleared by Great Balls of Fire (God what a dumb ppv name. Some wcw level shit) they plan on doing a #1 contender tournament.

    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.

    So I guess if Braun isn't cleared by Great Balls of Fire (God what a dumb ppv name. Some wcw level shit) they plan on doing a #1 contender tournament.

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

    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.

    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.
  • dab00gdab00g Joined: Posts: 21,186
    New Day became obnoxious about 6 months ago

    Like fuck them. I enjoy seeing kofi and xavier get wrecked. Big E is ready for that major singles run. He can wreck the other two and go on his own as a face.

    I think bigger picture big e needs to be a main event singles guy.

    Speaking of New Day, looks like Kofi's out of the walking boot.

    WWE don't know what to do with the New Day. They obviously want to keep them together but hit a brick wall with them.

    The tag thing is played out. I would have them more as a stable than a tag team.

    I mean big e is so much untapped potential kept in a box

    Kofi too could be something.

    Xavier is just mediocre to me. I mean he is okay in ring, but dude is just so unlikable. He has natural heel charisma.

    It's not like i want them serious. I just think big e has main event written all over him. Especially given smackdown booking.

    I think one of the biggest misconceptions people (including the WWE) have with New Day is if they move into singles that they'll have to break up. That's not the case at all in fact they're more interesting as singles wrestlers if they stick together.

    Let me just fantasy book for a moment. Let's say at Money in the Bank, Kofi is in the Money in the Bank (because of course he is) while Big E and Xavier have a tag title shot against the Uso's. Big E and Xavier go over (with or without Kofi's help/shenanigans it depends how much WWE want to keep New Day as cheating babyfaces). Later in the night in the Money Bank match happens and after years of trying Kofi finally manages to win the briefcase thanks to Big E and Xavier pulling a last minute assist/sacrifice.

    At this point if Kofi cashes in after the title match (Orton vs Rusev) or waits until later on isn't particularly important (when he does he should win), what is important is in one night The New Day will have become the most powerful faction in WWE and depending on what they want/need they could follow this exact plan as either heels or faces depending on who they beat (go over Uso's & cash in on Rusev if they want them as faces or go over Breezango and cash in on Orton as heels).

    Last I heard Braun would only be out a couple of weeks. Oh well, Bray berried again.

    Brock and Balor sounds cool.

    I'm really starting to think that Vince's mentality of "push the big guy/bury the small guy" has rubbed off on you.

    So Daniel Bryan is going to die in ring. He recently said in an interview that once his contract with WWE is up at the end of 2018 he plans on wrestling again.
