    roman vs buddy on kick off show? makes 11

    Fite seems to be denying it. So it appears that American Indies will line on another day.

    According to the Wrestlers Observer, it was Heymans call to move the match to RAW intead of Summerslam.

    It's funny how 3/4 of the people in that match were Smackdown superstars, including the actual champions, but the RAW executive producer made the call. I guess brands sort of don't matter at this point. I would have thought they would mean more after we got 2 different executive producers for both shows but the opposite seems to be taking place.

    You think the Superstars would themselves be pissed about it since they aren't getting a SummerSlam payday now.

    What ticked me off was that this entire story was about The IIconics ducky Asuka & Kairi for months. Yet the "payoff" to it was Alexa and Nikki getting thrown in there last minute barely two weeks after announcing they wanted them, and yet THEY win the belts, with Alexa pinning Kairi.

    It's a nice microcosm of how WWE SUCKS at paying storylines off well, and everything wrong with Vince's philosophy these days.

    Yeah, at least from the perspective of their pocketbooks Heyman pulling them off the PPV and onto RAW didn't do any of the 8 women involved any favors.

    Though I wonder if he believed at far as the titles were concerned, it was better that the title change occur on RAW (which most WWE fans watch) than the pre-show (which a lot of people don't bother watching). Maybe that was his logic. Hard to say.

    I'm 100% certain Banks and Bayley have been depushed after both got nailed in "gotcha moments" on Fair Game on FS1.

    The host walked them back into not having a union and helping them form a CBA.

    Vince is not happy that Fox is pushing for a CBA on both the XFL and WWE. Like, apparently it was a part of the deal to air either shows.

    Why wouldn't Becky want to feud with her? They had great chemistry in NXT and it was the Takeover match with Sasha that first got Becky noticed by many fans. Plus it'd be HUGE step up from getting stuck with Lacey and Nattie for months as well.

    This feud is such a no brainer.

    WWE has done a really bad job of building summerslam this year imo. i'm thinking i might use my money to sub to highspots for a month, that or download the champions carnival from ivp, i haven't watched any AJPW in years.

    So Billy Corgan announced that starting in October that NWA will start airing their own show coming from Atlanta , Georgia.





    This is kinda a smart thing to base a TV show around the former area of NWA's key strong market. But this enters a very busy wrestling era now for TV and streaming.

    NWA
    Impact Wrestling
    All Elite Wrestling
    NXT (airing soon on Fox Sports 1)
    ROH (Sinclair stations)
    Lucha Underground
    New Japan (Axs TV)
    MLW (BeiN Sports)

    Holy shit that is a lot of choice now.

    Yeah the build for most of the matches had been, lacking, to be sure.
