Now that we know more about the women’s tag belts, is it safe to assume that the bella twin and the other bella twin are going to somehow be simultaneously booked as dominant and yet underdogs while winning the belts and holding the division
Do we know more about them? I wasn't really paying attention to anything on RAW. Regardless, I think they're gonna end up with Sasha and Bayley.
Jinder & Alicia vs R-Truth & Carmella as the final…I have no words. FB partners must be excited. Also Truth as nr 30 in the women's Royal Rumble? Trainwreck would be an understatement
There's many causes for concern in Titan Towers at the moment, but this is the least of them. However, for all those who e-mail saying "HEY WWE SHOULD DO A G1 CLIMAX TOURNAMENT ON THE NETWORK IT'D BE AWESOME!" bear witness to what happens when they have to plan something for more than two weeks. Do you WANT Jinder Mahal as #30 in the Rumble? Because that's how you get Jinder as #30 in the Rumble.
Around when were they tightened up? And which came first, the chicken or the egg? Was it to aid aerial maneuvers or did they follow as wrestlers took advantage of the new norm?
I'd be lying if I said I ever noticed it before, but ring construction tended to vary from arena to arena anyway so I don't think it would have some kind of global loose rope conspiracy or anything.
Whilst listening to a podcast recently I thought up a question I thought might be amusing blog fodder, but then forgot about it. (Un?)Luckily, I remembered it again!
Was Edge the last star to receive a true, old school main event push? Not ‘a few surprise main events and then back down you go’, mind you. I’m talking about someone who was around a few years, worked his way up the card to a certain point, and then finally broke through as a true main eventer when the right angle under the right circumstances occurred. If the Lita-Matt-Edge triangle does not occur, it’s not a safe bet necessarily that Edge gets to the main event. Today you are given your role out of the gate and only step outside of it, temporarily, or at least it seems so to me. Admittedly I only follow the WWE via your blog, watching only when something sounds REALLY awesome, so perhaps I am missing a few obvious candidates.
One of the key reads as to the WWE’s true intentions, in my view, is in presentation. If a guy gets to wrestle, let’s say, Cena after a huge storyline in a big main event, but their outfit, promotion and character are basically the same, they aren’t being elevated. It’s a novelty almost, a palette cleanser.
Am I off? Have Edges galore simply slipped under my radar?
What are the chances that it turns out Nia was following Vince’s orders. He mistakenly sees money in Charlotte and as a result we have the Kansas City Screwjob and turns out Nia was just doing what’s best for business?
I have a hard time associating “Nia Jax” and “best for business” together.
Now that Rousey vs. Becky is off for Survivor Series, could it actually be a good thing that they put this off for a few months? Considering it’s a fresh rivalry between the biggest name in the company and the hottest act in the company, wouldn’t it make sense to try and save this match for WrestleMania now?
Also, is Shane McMahon now replacing Becky at Survivor Series? Isn’t that how this works when a Smackdown person gets hurt?
