    Maybe people will finally realize that against all odds, SDL has found a way to be the B-Show once again and be worse than Raw these past couple of months (and ironically I think Jinder is not any of the reasons for this).

    Smackdown's superiority was 100% because of AJ Styles's main event run and Miz being on fire. Now Styles is becoming a standard boring face in a midcard feud and Miz is on Raw.


    It all started with that horrible Wyatt Randy finish at mania. That made no sense and was the beginning of the descent.

    To think Bray was supposed to turn face, win the title back by SS and then feud with Rusev.

    The build for Styles/Nakamura at summerslam should be cool

    Lol going to see billy gunn live one on one with Tanahashi

    I still hold out slight hope they could hold it off to Mania but...10 months is definitely an awfully long time.

    And...*sigh* Such a waste, but I guess it's the safe thing to do with Tanahashi still hurt.

    Smackdown tonight certainly suggested (to me, at least) that AJ's continuing that feud with KO.

    Mr. Ass works a smart low impact style and will bump his ass of to make tanahashi look like a beast. It will be a smart match that saves tanahashi from
    The usually athletic and fast paced style that wrecked him to begin with

    The put Naito in a jobber bracket so we're probably getting Naito v Omega final again.
    Like I said in my earlier post we don't know the blocks until the 26th, so Naito may get a tough bracket. That being said he's still the favourite this year although there is a chance that Kenny wins back to back to push his storyline with Okada further.

    Probably the biggest question is where are each of the big four (Okada, Naito, Tana, Kenny), Ibushi and Suzuki placed, no matter how the brackets are split they're putting on a lot of big matchups in pools and likely the finals.
    For example if you put Okada, Naito and Ibushi in one bracket then you have a teaser for what is likely the WK12 main event in pools and big cross brand matchups with Ibushi. While in the Tana, Kenny, Suzuki block you have the Tana/Kenny runback match that never happened due to injury, you have the big good vs evil match in Tana/Suzuki and you have the first time, evil group leader face off in Kenny/Suzuki that could be the spiritual successor to the awesome AJ/Suzuki G1 24 match.

    Honestly the biggest missed opportunity about the US G1 show is no Kojima. He would have been over as fuck!

    Nah, the beginning of the descent was when they gave the belt to Bray in the first place. I love Bray, but that entire thing was mishandled. Bray winning the title needed to be something you build to, but it instead just kind of got crammed into that between-Rumble-and-Mania zone and put on fast-forward.

    Also, AJ Styles just isn't that interesting as a righteous babyface. He was better as the pissed off underdog.
  • dab00gdab00g Joined: Posts: 20,455
    They should have kept the belt on Bray, and built to matches where bray defends against Orton at backlash and Harper at Mitb

    But they chose to put bray on raw and have him go back to losing all the damn time

    It also left rowan and harper legless as the story never finished

    Pissed they took the belt off Carmella.

    She has been a joy to watch with Elsworth and cut a top tier promo on SD.

    Tamina basically showed the world why she isnt ready to be champ by not even listening to other people in her seqment and repeating lines to COMPLETE AWKWARD SILENCE. That was so bad.

    They better not give that shit to Charlotte

    So with Fire Pro for PC coming out next month who would be down to have a fire pro tournament?

    I think we'd have to wait a bit for mods to come out but I think it would be fun and doable.

    I'm going to wait when Fire Pro is no longer in early access to buy it. It never feels right buying a game that's still in active development.

    Fair enough. By the time it officially comes out there will likely be tons of CAW packs ready to go.

    That's what happens when you steal lines. Tamina isn't good enough to improvise lines.

    She clearly doesn't understand delivery.
    Just putting emphasis on the word "YOU" would have made all the difference.

    Not that it would have helped her as much but it wouldn't have made her look like a total idiot.
  • spudlyff8fanspudlyff8fan is love. Joined: Posts: 7,082
    Man, I don't know what the deal is in WWE with people that don't know what words to emphasize. All the mid-level promos have a bad case of that.

    Mid-Level? That's the biggest compliment Tamina's ever received in her wrestling career.

    Mid-and-lower. Even Cass's promo on Monday, which was otherwise really solid, started with a "you're damn right, I DID IT" rather than a "you're DAMN RIGHT I did it."

    I really want a new wrestle kingdom game with njpw, ajpw, ddt, and roh. Just with commentary and that same dor2 system.

    It would be great to have a game with rain maker

    I was hoping spike was making king of coliseum 3 with new japan again the main group.

    Koc2 is one of the best sims ever.

    I assumed the Enzo/Cass angle was originally a way to write the Revival back on TV (I coulda swore I saw them walking in view of the camera in one of the scenes where Cass was laid out), but I guess I was wrong (or the return got pushed back and this was an audible considering the rushed, barely-rehearsed micwork by Cass).

    If Cass is getting a solo run after this angle wraps up, he should go to Smackdown for further character development, or off TV altogether for some fine tuning. I don't know where you put him besides filler feuds if you keep him on Raw.

    Of course, Vince will probably give him the Jinder push because he likes big guys more than he likes sensible booking and keeping his business around to pass to his kids when he dies.

    No you did. They actually pointed out the Revival being around Enzo's first injury the very next week.

    Don't forget Sasha. Unlike the trash Big Baller Brand, the TITUS BRAND appeals to women.

    Yeah but Sasha and Titus already have mutual interest. She was already in the Titus Brand BBQ.
