    So far I think the authority have been REASONABLY fair to Becky. If this were real life rather than a TV show, I think most people would look at the situation and side with them over Becky.

    Of course, I imagine that will change sooner or later... but as of now I don't think Becky legitimaely has too much to complain about.

    I like Batista but I was hoping AEW doesn't fold into the part-timers the way WWE has. Velveteen's Instagram/Twitter is all about letting the past die and I couldn't agree with him more.

    It's also being reported that Lesnar is using AEW as leverage for a bigger WWE contract. So don't expect him to go anywhere for the next 2 - 3 years.

    Here's a paragraph from the 10-K SEC filing by WWE about Vince McMahon who's reassured the company that he'll still remain focus on WWE when XFL starts up...

    "In addition to serving as Chairman of our Board of Directors and Chief Executive Officer, Mr. McMahon leads the creative team that develops the storylines and the characters for our programming (including our television, WWE Network and other programming) and live events. From time to time, Mr. McMahon has also been an important member of our cast of performers. The loss of Mr. McMahon due to unexpected retirement, disability, death or other unexpected termination for any reason could have a material adverse effect on our ability to create popular characters and creative storylines or could otherwise adversely affect our operating results. Mr. McMahon has established Alpha Entertainment LLC, to explore investment opportunities across the sports entertainment landscapes, and Alpha Entertainment LLC plans to launch a professional football league in early 2020 . While he has provided the Company assurances that his focus on WWE will not be diverted by these efforts, any such diversion or perception of such diversion could adversely affect our operating results and could have a material adverse effect on our stock price."

    This makes so much sense though. Jay has gotten the better of Okada repeatedly. So what better way to prove that "The Rainmaker" is truly back than finally vanquishing Switchblade in the biggest way possible?

    The writing/booking is incredible. spoilers:
    I was skeptical about Omega's void in NJPW but Switchblade quickly filled that in. Now the inevitable Rainmaker/Switchblade program for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship. I can't wait!

    If they don't book Okada to defeat Switchblade, at first, I honestly wouldn't mind seeing Ibushi go for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship either.

    Well WWE went in the most predictable way possible, shocking.

    I feel like some people don't quite get why people are crapping on this.

    What many people are so aggravated about is that they came out like two months ago and basically admitted that their show sucked and that it needed to change. So they promised a "New Era" and "YOU are the Authority now," and no one was asking for the McMahon's to shove their way into this. Well not even two months later, it's back to the same old same old and

    THAT'S what many people hate the most.* That, after the RR, we actually started to think that MAYBE they would change/do new stuff* Nope, we were sure foolish to give them that much credit.

    And in the process, they're undercutting a super-hot and popular angle because they* just cannot leave well enough alone.

    This was Gedo transferring Omega's storylines to Switchblade.

    Switchblade feels more like a "dark mirror" to Okada I think. There's even, I think completely intentional, parallels between how Okada was booked during his first push and how Jay is being booked now.

    That makes sense and I think it'll actually work better with Switchblade. He fills out that role of being the top heel of the company extremely well. I'm really looking forward to seeing how "The Cutthroat Era" plays out.

    I wouldn't be surprised if this is all to establish Okada as the top face of the company.

    He's already their Ace. It's probably more to establish Jay as their top gaijin, top heel, and a future longer-term rival for Okada. Also to give Okada a "redemption" thing for this "he's lost his mojo ever since losing the title and needs to get it back" storyline, especially since during it Jay has beaten him repeatedly and Gedo betrayed him to join with Jay.

    I think they're going to be more careful with putting a lot of investment in their top gaijin unless they have long-term contracts. But, if they do want to establish Switchblade as their top heel for a longer-term, I expect programs with Ibushi and Naito in the foreseeable future.

    The G1 Supercard at Madison Square Garden will be interesting. Is that RoH vs. NJPW or a card with both companies but their own matches?

    They've turned the Raw Women's Championship into a similar situation as Wrestlemania 30. Which, honestly, I don't mind but I'm still not under the impression it'll have the same ending.

    Unless they have Becky/Charlotte at Fast Lane, that leaves Asuka and the Smackdown Women's Championship in disarray for Wrestlemania. I hope the rumor of Mandy Rose is absolutely false but I know Vince wants to push her.

    Rollins/Heyman was good but I'm curious to see where it goes from here. Ambrose going 180 was weird but slightly satisfying even though it felt similar to Edge and Cena. Lesnar is going to be around after Wrestlemania so this may all mean nothing. Whether at Wrestlemania or down the line.

    Somebody mentioned how the crowd reaction during The Revival/Roode and Gable went from uninterested to "This is awesome!" chants. That's what happens when you allow talented tag teams to put on great matches. It shouldn't be rare and hopefully the trend continues.
