And his Inner Circle promo from Wednesday was just killer.

"MEAN STREETS OF WINNEPEG!" :lol:

I love that he worked in his dad in that promo.

Poor Fox thinking this "draft" would be a big deal like the NFL Draft :lmao:.

The whole 1 group = 1 pick.....but unless they only want one of them.....is just asinine.  Typical WWE convoluted bullshlt. So is the whole "2 pools" thing just less so. Just another bullshlt shakeup thrown together that wont last. The first instant of Fox bltchling about declining ratings, you'll see Lynch/etc.. on Fox. They already declined 1 million from episode 1.....but the draft was a "huge success"

-------

At least with Braun/Fury now announced, Goldberg/Taker won't be the worst match in WWE Saudi Arabia history :excited:

I just saw a message I was attached to earlier today and working on confirming or deny it. Some big rumor about Charlotte Flair's status in WWE and could be reason she lost title on Friday night. Still waiting to hear back from some people but there's a lot of talk amongst those who have heard about this already.

Many of us just figured she lost the title so she could be drafted to RAW but that may not be the case now

I was wondering why he got stripped. I figured it may have had something to do with AEW not allowing him over there or something

Doubt I never saw Charlotte like her Father having a love for the business like him. I can definitely see her getting out of wrestling all together if not now in the future. Not sure if this whole The Man thing with her father has something to do with it. Still waiting to hearing from people

Mike Bennet has asked for his release

Highly doubt he gets it. WWE is trying to keep as much talent as possible right now. If he does get it I hope he goes to AEW or Japan.

Even though Sasha is suppose to compete tonight looks like she's still injured. WWE has announced Charlotte Flair is replacing her. 

Also just because Charlotte may have asked for her release doesn't mean it will happen. See why above on the Bennet post

i see 90 pound white females there all around. Temple has done well, they bought up a bunch and have twice the security force than any other university/college in the city. 

to be honest i work in that area from time to time, and my wife does too. she was on the block of that shoot-out 3 days earlier at a home visit for client. Definitely not the best, but also definitely not the worse. 

if i can guarantee one thing though, there will be plenty of cops around. Philly doesn't need any kind of black eye, they do a good job making sure none of the gun violence leaks over to the citizens

Doesn't look like I'll be going. My Department boss made a deal with my SD on if she could have someone Thursday and since I was off Wednesday he could use me. Originally he told me Sat come 9:30AM-6PM. I figured Ok I'd rather be in earlier and be done by 5-5:30 but 6 is the latest. I go to confirm Sat and he tells me he'd let me know final term Monday. I see him today he's changes it to 11AM-7:30PM which is the bell time. Unless I can get out of there 1 1/2Hrs earlier by 6 if I can get everything done no way I'm making this show. Only good thing is I can still watch it after work no matter what.

Its getting real at the Hardy Compound between the Wives

To sum it up and I haven't followed everything but everyone knows Jeff was arrested for a DWI. Acccording to Police he had a bloody nose which he said came with an altercation with Wife Beth. No arrests were made as neither one pressed charges on the other. Beth accursed Reby and Matt of making up BS family statements. Reby is essentially firing back accusing Beth of enabling Jeff's behavior (In other words saying she's doing more to hurt Jeff's well being then trying to help) acting like everything is perfect and not living in Reality. Reby is firing back with Matt being his brother has every right to speak as he's experienced first hand Jeff and has been there himself. Matt and Reby seem like they want to help Jeff but Beth seems to be trying to enable and defends Jeff's issues instead of trying to help. Reby warns Beth if she doesn't wake up and smell the roses soon Jeff's behavior will likely hurt himself or someone else much worse.

A few notes from a few people:

90% sure fiend will be traded to RAW 

Red light will continue not  sure if they meant during Matches 

Theres thought backstage of a double turn with Seth and Fiend. No pun intend but a slow burn

Last not surprising but talent is PISSED OFF BACKSTAGE. Those who signed new deals feel they were duped and lied to and taken advantage suckered into signing a 3-5 yr deal.

Not sure what was worse: Stephanie trying to put over Lucha House Party (to crickets) or the Fox Execs congratulating one another for the picks of Luchas/Heavy Machinery :lmao: 

Not to mention they just had a draft (that they never adhered to) 6 months ago.

They already made it cringy as #### before it even started with "You can select the team as 1 pick.....unless you just want one of them" :lmao: 

:goodposting:   This draft is so stupid.  

Love how they said Miz and Mysterio were "value" picks at their spots.  :lmao:    War room celebrations!

I'M SHOCKED!!!! It was abundantly obvious Bischoff had zero clue about their current product (don't blame him at all). He let the inmates run the asylum in WCW and was able to hand out blank checks. Worked for a short period. Then predictably crumbled. 

Imagine moving across the country and within 2 (?) months already being replaced. The guy is a pompous piece of shlt and glad it's finally shown (again) he's an incompetent jackass.

Outside of the Fiend, can anyone name anything worth watching with today's product? I go through the results in probably 2 minutes and the only thing I ever watch clips of are Fiend/Firefly Funhouse.

And I'm being kind brushing off the HIAC ending. And that "killing off" Firefly Funhouse will be a mistake. They should have Bray one show......Fiend on the other. Seems fairly simple.

Sorry to all the Seth Rollins truthers. Guy absolutely bores me to pieces. I've never seen a guy be such a mark for himself and not draw a dime. Absolutely zero connection with audience. If they didn't pipe in his theme and chants, you could hear a pin drop when he's out there. He's just nauseating. I don't even think turning heel will do much. Found his heel stuff to be terrible too. Made just a little bit less so than his babyface crap.

I couldn't imagine watching WWE anymore TBH. 3 hours?!?!?! :lmao: I can't watch anything for 3 hours. I really struggle keeping my attention to anything more than an hour anymore. 

NWA put one a very good show in their debut. Short and sweet and a great look that doesn't look overproduced to hell. Hope it takes off for Billy Corgan. It is actually the first wrestling show I actually enjoyed start to finish in awhile. 1 hour just is enough wrestling for me anymore.

Jericho shlts all over anything other than perhaps Fiend that WWE is doing. Pretty amazing how he constantly reinvents himself. Pretty sure he's now in his late 40s.

I enjoy Becky Lynch. I enjoy Braun Strowman but seems he's always in some half-baked story line. The NXT product seems like the best thing the WWE has going.

By comparison, I have really enjoyed AEW so far. Far more interesting than anything WWE is doing - for now.

No to add to what I said yesterday I forgot who was mentioned but checked back today after the Bischoff stuff (Which I'll go into next" but it's 

Rey Mystero and Erick Rowan for The Fiend. If WWE really wanted to make it more realistic should've been McIntyre for The Fiend.

I'm told EB didn't go willingly:

he was fired on the spot at a meeting at RAW over some booking decisions that was not approved by Vince. He will get a Years salary but CANNOT WORK FOR ANYONE FOR A FULL YEAR. Bruce Prichard is doing this out of Favour for Vince Until a replacement is hired and FOX is aware and understanding of the situation

possible replacements are John Lauriniatis or Jeff Jarret. Both have had strong network relations before and would help. That even means if Heyman has to be sacrificed to SD

Tyson Fury is getting a payday of $14.75M to do the Braun Match expected to last just under 8 minutes. This includes all expenses paid and an entourage of 7 associates going with him. That blood money going to good use

I heard it wasn't all his fault. He just wasn't being a Kiss ### to Vince like everyone else. Vince only tolerated him to smooth relations with FOX as EB has always been good with getting network agreements an stuff. Vince used him then when every thing big was done found the tiny little thing to get upset over just to fire him and make an excuse to get rid of him

He comes off nasally and whiney. It worked a bit as a heel. Also I've said this numerous times and this isn't because I like Becky either but I just don't see what she sees in him. I know people in WWE are happy for them but there's a group who doesn't see it lasting and Becky will see what a fraud Seth is. If People think Punk has an ego and full of himself let me introduce you to Seth Rollins. The only difference is Seth is a Mark for himself and his Company as a whole. I remember on my old board discussing a debating who was better out of the 2 Seth or Punk. I was told Seth was better in the ring and on the mic. Boy was this person wrong. I can't tell you any memorable promo ever by Seth or big Match he drew huge ratings. His biggest moment was turning on The Shield. Dude doesn't draw and he created a ton of enemies in the wrestling industry with his tweets being a mark and kiss ### to his employer.

I was told that Seth had people talk to him after the Osprey stuff he had to apologize for. Two of those people were Hunter and Undertaker even was brought in. I heard Cena would've been there but conflict of schedules with his filming. He was basically told if Hunter and WWE wanted to bring in more Indy guys Seth acting like he did doesn't look well when he's suppose to be the face of the company. It's "NOT GOOD FOR BUISNESS" (Pun well intended there).  The funniest part of that whole thing was people on twitter burning Rollins Down with comparisons of what Will Osprey was doing at his age compared to when Seth was that young. It was not pretty for Seth. Add in his ex's issues and stuff that went on there and the dude looks like a total douchnoozle. I don't know the guy personally. I do know someone who has known him since he was 14 but we really don't talk about Colby that much. The guy I know is a cousin of Roman's and the USO's side of the family was a wrestler himself (going through cancer battle). He looks exactly like MLW Champ Jacob Fatu facial wise. I keep meaning to ask him though if this is Colby personally or if he just comes off that way unintentionally. We've talked a lot about the Anao'i family and I've been told stuff I really cannot share that isn't public info. Not just about them but a few wrestlers close to the family.

Yep I gotta watch this last NJPW PPV. Probably won't get to it till next weekend with work

I did find out my schedule got changed for Wednesday and only working till 5 now tomorrow so I may or may not be going to the AEW show. Trying to coax my buddy with tickets. For as cheap as they are I might just offer to pay for his ticket for him and don't pay me back. Considering how selfish and self-centered he is at times it'll probably work too

I enjoy her too but it's not just based on her looking good. Thanks to my own fights with where I am with work and all I can relate to her getting to the top of the business. Both of us have had to work for our success and other things. 

I can't take Braun Seriously. He now reminds me of the meathead athlete in your HS who's on the football team and works out. Good athlete but as dumb as a dam rock The whole I'm Cashing in my MITB contract was just dumb among other things. 

NXT is on and off for me. I enjoy certain aspects. I'm not a Bayzler fan by any means. She's literally the female Brock Lesnar been there done that type thing. She doesn't seem to give a #### about what she's doing which I like but she just bores me. I love Damien Priest and Dijakovic and have always been a DD fan since I watched his ROH stuff. I love Mia and Shirari and Perozza. I like Undisputed but Cole looks so corny with them. He use to seem like a badass when with Bullet Club. Now he looks like a whiney crybaby who backs down. I think Gargano is the most overrated Pro Wrestler today. He won't be successful on the main roster. He's literally a worse Daniel Bryan. We've seen and done that already with the Underdog stuff. Let that be DB's stuff. I really loved Ciampa's stuff and I'm happy Balor is back in NXT. I wished he'd turn heel already and form Balor club. Was really hoping he'd be in with the OC. 

Overall NXT I feel like you can skip to the Takeovers and still not miss what happened on the weekly shows. They better do more to fill in for after Takeovers instead of the recap show they do and 1 or 2 longer matches though.

AEW I cannot get enough. I''m ecstatic to possible be going to this. See Jericho and Omega and the Bucks!!!! Codi, and everyone else!!!! The last two weeks they left the shows of me wanting more more more. When Da F was the last time WWE made me do that? Last weeks AEW show wasn't as good as the debut but still enjoyable. I tried to watch some NXT during commercials but every time I would try they were doing video package, some stupid backstage segment or on commercial. Right Now AEW is the show to watch. NWA Power was ok but I'm not big on their production or small studio crowd. I love the talent especially Aldis and Storm though. Cornett I could never stand though.

Was flipping around last night after the baseball game and saw a show where Christian (of Edge and Christian) said the steal of the draft was Samoa Joe in the 5th round.  Huge steal for Raw there that will likely tip the scales towards Raw winning the title at the end of the season.  

I thought the steal of the draft was Titus O'Neil.   SD missed out on that one big time.  But at least they were fortunate enough to grab Heath Slater.  Can't believe he lasted as long as he did.
