All of Hardy's tests came back negative, thankfully.

Yeah AEW All Out was definitely a sloppy shop, full of botches and unnecessary high risk bumps. The first time AEW has taken a bad PR hit.

This post isn't intended to spark a debate (heated, anyway) over racial matters, but why does WWE like to group most of their black talent up for matches? >.> I was going to mention this weeks ago when I started noticing it again, and tonight they seriously had a 6-man tag team match with the black wrestlers.

Probably because all the black wrestlers are in the same spot on the card - featured, but not main eventers.

Sasha Banks v Charlotte, Hell in the Cell 2016, was the last time a black performer main evented a ppv in a featured role (not including Money in the Bank, Elimination Chamber, Royal Rumble, etc...)

Kofi never getting the main event slot is unfortunate. Keith Lee is talented and will hopefully be featured as a top performer and receive the main event slot in the future. Big E will probably be a similar Kofi situation.

And speaking of Sasha Banks, thank goodness they finally decided to begin her feud with Bayley. And with the injury angle, it'd be nice for Sasha to maybe return for the Rumble, win it, and challenged Bayley at WrestleMania, but that might be too much of a "dream scenario." I just hope they don't rush it and hold off on their match until at least Survivor Series or the Royal Rumble itself.

I only watch AEW once a month on average, and I happened to tune in to last night's episode. Definitely a surprise to see Miro.

This is great. Seeing Taker like this is refreshing.

Queue Jim Cornette going on a rant about kayfabe and Taker's character being ruined later today. :funny:

Angel Garza and Andrade v. Street Profits happened again on Raw tonight. According to Twitter, this is the sixth time in the last ten weeks...

So Retribution is now Slipknot? :funny:

Not too excited for Clash of the Champions on Sunday. Payback and Summerslam were both very good though, so hopefully they keep that streak going.

Alexa Bliss staring at Roman Reigns might be the best thing I've seen all year in WWE. Certainly up there with the lights coming back up on Cena and the camera pans to reveal The Fiend standing there.

How does Smackdown have so much decent storytelling, even long-term storytelling, but RAW feels like a repeat every single week?

Until Roman Reigns is champion for more than a month and the FICKLE fans start complaining he's the new Brock Lesnar.

Roman as a heel is better than anything he's done since the original Shield run. Better than that too I'm sure, but it's hard to compare with that five year stretch where they needlessly tried to make him the next John Cena.

I'm watching RAW right now. What started as a potentially decent idea with Retribution is just silly now. The masks, the shaky camera when they're present, the one dude with a combination of Bale's Batman voice and Hardy's Bane voice. It feels like a bad 90s WWF gimmick that'll disappear in a few months, if not sooner.

I'm not into RAW Underground. I don't get what the point is.

And WWE's idea of a sustainable tag team division is just showing the same two tag teams feuding for months and having the same match every single week.

The Retribution name unveiling reminded me of Dodgeball.

Is it wrong I'm more excited about Alexa playing a part in both single title matches on the smackdown side?

Post Re: Wrestling (WWE, IMPACT, NXT, AEW)
HHH vs HBK at Wrestlemania next year? I just watched the HHH anniversary episode and it seemed way too high tension with HBK being mean. I honestly thought he was going to get superkicked and Vince was going to kayfabe fire him and replace him with HBK, which would've made the segment an awesome set up like Tommy's death in Goodfellas. With no turn it just came off weird with no crowd. Since they're a year too early to set up that match, maybe it will be meaningful in the future, like Batista having an awkward moment with HHH on an anniversary special that foreshadowed their feud? Then again how could you get away with HBK being the heel in that feud?

Drew McIntyre is having a lot of fun and showing his real personality as champion. Another person having fun is Bayley who I find more hilarious as her title reign goes on. The Big Show after WM match was a cool idea to start Drew's reign. I prefer Drew to Braun so far who you can tell immediately why this wasn't the plan for him. The longer Braun is the champion the probability of Sheamus entering the world title picture approaches 1 (I get it, there's only so many heels who are physical threats to him and he already went through the Lashleys and Corbins, but do it after he loses it when he need something to do for 3 months instead of the worst title feud since Jinder vs Nakamura please...)

Alestair Black is one of my favorite in ring workers right now. By putting him against Apollo Crews (shockingly good match), Oney Lorcan and Austin Theory the weeks after WM he seems like their go-to for the guy who makes up and comers look good. Now they just need to find a way to write in Zelina as his mouthpiece cause he needs it.

My favorite Wrestlemania matches were the Boneyard match, Flair vs Ripley, Owens vs Rollins, the ladder match, and Firefly funhouse, with women's tag title being the sleeper really good match. Most disappointing match was Bryan vs Zayn since they didn't let them do it. Edge and Orton needed more creative stuff than punching each other in the face for like 25 of the 35 minutes in the match.

This is the Roman we've been wanting for a long time. The idea, as many have speculated already, is to set-up a Reigns/Rock match at WrestleMania next year, and for once, that'd be a great match-up!

Also, RAW sucks, and it has sucked for months now. While Smackdown is great, and has gotten better and better for months now. The TV ratings show this as well.
