    B/R had an article that really hit home with me, WWE roster is stacked but the booking is atrocious. What interesting storyline is out right now? I like the Tribal Chief and the All Mighty on top of their respective brands but what storylines are moving you right now? Bobby's and Roman's are meh, they are giving Rhea and Bianca a chance at the top but what interesting story is happening there? I kind of like what Sheamus and Apollo are doing but neither are in the middle of a good storyline. Nothing is going on with the Raw tag titles and while taking the belts off the Dirty Dogs makes sense because the Uso's going for the tag belts is soon to begin and better for them to go after a face tag team. The women's tag team division seems like the same matches every week and even NXT seems muddled. I know they are no doubt in treading water mode until Summer Slam, which would be ok if they didn't seem to be treading water ever since Covid hit.

    The COVID storylines were mostly excellent. I'd argue Smackdown has been pretty good but RAW has been atrocious, I can't believe they have the same writing teams. I do think they are treading water, it's weird they are moving Hell In a Cell before Money In the Bank--it actually feels like MITB would be the perfect time to be now since a bunch of divisions need a storyline jump start.

    There's definitely been a lack of momentum and starting new, interesting stories after 'Mania.

    Bayley/Bianca has heated up in a few weeks.

    The Reigns/Uso storyline is fantastic.

    Where is Zayn? AJ/Omos/Apollo have pretty much have had momentum killed after winning their titles. What happened to Retribution going solo?

    Zayn Owens and Apollo are all feuding over the IC title. Zayn was on Smackdown last week.

    AJ and Apollo are nowhere to be found though.

    Reigns is good but he can’t keep rolling over faces clean. It gets boring when he wins every single feud (and I’ve been a big Reigns cheerleader since the heel turn). They need to spice it up.

    Move Lashley away from Drew and let him feud with someone else. Let Drew also feud with someone else to keep things fresh.

    I think we're getting one more Lashley-Drew match, at Hell in a Cell

    If anything, at least Love adds a "name" wrestler to the division.
    RoH is a company that's hugely made up of workhorses and Love definitely isn't that. She was there because Velvet was and she was there because she was dating Bubba.

    I want to see Drew feud with Jinder. Draw on their history being in 3MB. Bring up their main-event success. It's such a natural feud

    I think it’s just the natural result of the way WWE does booking and storytelling - it’s an already somewhat sloppy and micro-managed process that then gets built around 4 main PPVs.

    Sometime,a it’s not nearly as much fo a hassle, and they manage to have *something* going pretty steady. But they’re not designed to really be flexible or fluid, or to maximize the full roster they have under control. Not on the main shows, at least.

    There are no legit challengers to Reign's right now on Smackdown, although I think they are slowly building towards Rollins - Regins. Who else is there on SD to be considered main event / world title material. Raw needs to change up feuds for Lashley and Drew, I do like the idea of a Drew / Jinder feud. Strohman is basically a mid carder at this point. They could do something with Keith Lee vs Lashley, if and when ever they bring him back.

    The Fiend is being repackaged once again, but he isn't main event material right now either, he is creative but he has never been taken seriously in my opinion. They could do something with Priest now that the Miz was eaten by Zombies, lol. SD could do something with Alastair Black?

    IIRC black is being moved to Raw.

    Roman's next feud is probably Jimmy Uso. Then he just needs a filler feud to last until Summer Slam when he faces Rollins.

    Not every wrestler, male of female, in ROH is going to be a workhorse. They also have wrestlers like PCO, Castle and Danhausen. They all play their role.

    In reading Bubba is gone from ROH it appears and other men have that role now. I think he couldn't survive the terrible year ROH had business wise from 2019/2020 from what we read awhile back. Its said business took a massive nosedive after Cody and everyone departed for AEW.

    Letting Devi go is a mistake. Her matches have attracted a large number of Indian viewers on YouTube. She could have succeeded where Jinder failed.
