    Could Retribution be some of the guys that got cut? We're Ricochet, Cedric, and Ali on Raw last night?

    Using fired wrestlers would sort of be interesting, but most of the ones anyone would give a dam about are already working somewhere else.

    Lio Rush and Rusev I suppose might be cool, if they're not signed doing anything else. Maybe Rowan. But I think that's about it, short of obviously Kurt Angle. But I think he's a stretch to be involved in anything like this.

    Lio Rush is retiring from wrestling and Rusev has covid.

    The optics of Ali being part of what's right now a WWE terrorist faction is probably not what they want right now....

    I'm going with the rumored call-ups. Dijakovic, Ciampa, Chelsea Green....

    you're right, my bad, "squashed" is the term i should've used. couldn't disagree more about eric, dolph, and hurt business looking great. beating up randoms from the crowd wasn't impressive, especially since they didn't do anything they couldn't do in a regular match. and why put swerve in the crowd to get beat up like a jackoff??

    If I were able to make changes. I would do the following.

    Open it up to everybody. You got a bunch of "shooters" on the roster,let that be their playground.

    Build up the matches via your social media with guys and gals challenging each other to Underground matches.Social media also gives you more lead way in what you can say in your promo.

    Get rid of the dancing girls. It looks stupid. I rather see talent acting inappropriately than random eye candy.

    Give this to MVP. Let him be Dario Cueto. Shane can be used as the impromptu manager for the new giant they have
    .

    I could also see a lot of variant toys coming out of this with repackaged wrestlers.
    god please no, hurt business is the highlight of raw right now, please keep them far away from that shit. it's bad enough they had to get mixed up with r truth, the ninjas and that whole clown show.

    that's not saying much.

    i couldn't tell wtf it's supposed to be, i just figured it was something else for brandi to do.

    while not as progressive as they'd like to think they are, they have not given us trish barking like a dog, HLA, bra & panty matches, claire lynch, or sharmell vs jenna morasca. just by not doing those things kind of evens the score.

    didn't he just wrestle for GCW or was that his retirement match??

    Just because AEW didn't exist back when those things all happened doesn't mean they wouldn't have done a lot of the same things. As an aside, Trish barking like a dog at least lead to her getting her revenge on Vince via Linda taking the company back from him and Trish punting him in the dick.
