Jason Jordan is what everyone accuses Roman Reigns of being: a corporate creation. I think Reigns was a legit star when The Shield was still a heel stable, kind of like Batista just before they pulled the trigger and turned him face in 2005. The smarks are who ruined Reigns.

Jordan, meanwhile, is just a bad creation. Just turn him heel already. I just hope they don't waste Angle's first one-on-one match with him. Turn him heel and say Triple H was behind it. Angle vs. Triple H.

American Alpha's appeal was the goofy mismatched buddy cop angle they had in NXT. For whatever reason, WWE hasn't even tried to recreate that.

Coincidentally, Jason Jordan's original tag team partner was Tye Dillinger, who wishes he could be in an awful storyline right now lol.

War Games was outstanding. I highly enjoyed the Black-Velveteen Dream match (I hadn't really seen Dream in anything but a semi-squash up to that point so I didn't realize he had that much potential), Cien-McIntyre was better than I expected and frankly better than some of the more star studded title matches, and the War Games car crash match was entertaining as hell after they all got in. The enjoyment of the Divas match was slightly lessened by how they've had so many 3-4 ways with Ember, Nikki, etc. involved.

Survivor Series was great until the atrocious main event match. That has to be one of the worst booked PPV matches since the Royal Rumble Reigns won and Bryan got eliminated early. I mean it wasn't dramatic at all with it coming down to Shane obviously going to lose vs HHH, Braun, Angle, Owens interference was at the wrong time (It would've been effective if Smackdown was about to win and he cost them the whole show), they didn't really give Roode a chance to have an eye opening moment, the stupid HHH swerve at the end, and just not that much cool stuff. Can they just make 90% of these matches end with 1 on 1, I think we're ok with it compared to the more boring last two years of multiple guys standing at the time. The Divas Survivor Series match worked much better as a story, the Tamina-Nia thing was better than any mini matchup in the men's one. But I can't complain because overall the night was good. Both tag matches were great and Lesnar-Styles was Lesnar's best match in a while and him wrestling a small guy who's best in the world at selling really emphasized for the first time in a while what a monster Brock is. I definitely preferred this to last year's Survivor Series where they weren't even trying to make the count of who won the night important by the last match.

Reigns has what, 6 weeks to kill until he goes into Royal Rumble/Brock Lesnar mode? Ouch if Miz gets buried just for that. Rusev never recovered from the last time Reigns had a midcard belt

Paige and RUBY RIOT!!! Lots of new NXT girls with them too. Some of the current divas about to lose their spot. Carmela winning MITB looks like a waste, there's barely a place for her anymore let alone as champion.

HHH and Braun Wrestlemania feud sounds pretty dreadful

So, Ruby Riot, Liv Morgan, and Sarah Logan debuted Smackdown -- that's six new female superstars added to the roster this week. There's 20.5 active women (Lana being the 0.5) on the main roster now. I know it's wishful thinking, but maybe we'll get a women's tag division in the near future? It'd be the perfect opportunity to, finally, call up the Iconic Duo, too.

Also, the rumored first ever women's rumble match at Royale Rumble in January is looking pretty likely as well. A few of the female talent that WWE signed around the time of the Mae Young Classic earlier this year could make their debuts in the rumble match, and a couple surprise entries from past female superstars, such as Kelly Kelly and Eva Torres, could easily bring the number up to 30.


They need a divas version of 205, or just have it replace 205. Seems like it should be a good financial decision since it would attract a new type of subscriber to the network, would do well on social media, etc.

Rose is hot for a female wrestler, in spray tan porn star look indeed, but hot nonetheless.

Morgan however is definitely better looking too.

I forgot all about that RAW vs. Smackdown count at Survivor Series. That completely killed Lesnar and Styles for me. Of course RAW couldn't lose that going into the main event. It took away from the otherwise solid match between the two. It was bad enough knowing Styles wouldn't win without guaranteeing it with math.

I'm new to this Broken/Woken gimmick, but it seems like it can be a lot of fun if WWE doesn't ruin it. I'm apprehensive of pitting him immediately against Bray Wyatt. WWE has a history of having Bray put over the wrong people, but also going over the wrong people too.

The Roman Reigns Intercontinental Title open challenge! It was interesting seeing the difference between Elias and Jordan in that episode, as opposed to the force fed Jordan, I feel like Elias organically earned his spot so far... Honestly think after his NXT disaster when they called him up they were just expecting a comedy relief enhancement talent like Aiden English or something.

I am sure people online are talking about Shinsuke's fade but I see warning signs for Balor too. Stuff like starting what could've been a Samoa Joe PPV feud then it just turning into a Raw match. Will Demon vs Demon even be on a PPV? The nice thing about him though is turning him heel Bullet Club leader with Gallows and Anderson is always there as a backup plan.

Paige's henchman seem pretty weak so far. The MMA one said one word and was already getting "What?" reactions. Kind of think they should have just made Paige come back as a face, go this is my house and feud Alexa. I prefer Riot squad so far. I like the potential of Sara Logan hunter/backwoods character turning into an eventual predator.

Are Gable and Benjamin heels now and Usos the face? Not sure what's going on there, or New Day seemingly going back in the title picture so fast.

Kalisto surprisingly busting as a cruiserweight. I didn't realize he would still seem so small against them after Neville felt like a completely different guy physically against wrestlers his size and he's not the best Lucha worker they have as Gran Metallik is awesome. Interested to see Hideo Itami in the division

Reportedly, Vince doesn't think Balor is over enough with the crowd to give him another main event/title push again so "soon". Also, reportedly, the plan a couple months back was to have a Balor vs. Lesnar title match at the Rumble this year. Heyman had done his part in hyping it by saying that while he believes Styles in the best in-ring performer of this generation, others would argue that it's Balor. And the commentators, notably Cole, are typically quick to note that Balor was the first Universal Champion.

*Shrug*

Balor is basically trolling Vince/WWE officials and/or fans on social media now with the "Over" reports in recent days/weeks.

They should just do Balor Club v Shield. Finn has never gotten a chance to be a villian in WWE and that type of feud could last from Rumble to Mania easily before Roman moves on to being King again.

He is one of the top 5 right now, but his character is very vanilla outside of ppvs. Maybe its the accent too. "Dubaya Dubaya Eee Universail Chompianship." It must make Vince cringe. Maybe Bullet Club could be associated with the IRA. :funny:

Balor's charisma is pretty bad and he's not huge. I can see why Vince wouldn't believe in him.

Shane being special guest ref at CoC seems like a set up for him to go heel.

Now I can actually read wrestling rumors again. I read that there's a chance Neville was in talks to come back as he was never officially released. Though I'm assuming he's done with 205 for sure one way or the other since he's out of their intro. If they bring him back it will be on main roster I bet. I saw someone say he should come back as a faction with Zayn and Owens and play up him being as pissed off at the higher ups as they are for not pushing him.

I wonder if Drew Gulak will make a powerpoint about it.

I really liked Swann though. Even if he avoids jail his WWE career is done.

This Bray/Matt feud is delightful.

And if Kane challenges Lesnar at the Rumble for the Universal Title... :funny:
