Ronda is pregnant. Maybe she could be at Wrestlemania in LA in 2023.

Do we expect better from WWE? We and they know they have no respect for their performers unless they're making them mega money. Then you have people online saying it's acceptable. Of course it's fucking acceptable. Wouldn't it be better to have something beyond acceptable, especially when you give so many years of your career to a company that couldn't be bothered to give you a proper spot on any of their three brands?

I know Vince must still be wallowing in Hart family sympathy because I have no idea why someone like Mickie James didn't have a spot similar to Natalya's. Natalya does nothing at this point except put people over and Mickie would have been great for that. And give her a proper storyline.

Post Re: Wrestling (WWE, IMPACT, NXT, AEW)
So I've been making a point of watching RAW, NXT, AEW Dynamite and Smackdown the last few weeks. One thing that is painfully obvious: Vince McMahon has to be controlling RAW 100%. This week was just bad.

-I really don't want to blame Drew McIntyre because he has carried RAW through the "Pandemic Era". Braun is at least a decent version of his character at the moment, but it won't result in a WWE title run. And I would like more from Lashley.

-For the first time since the gimmick change, I'm actually worried for Bray. He hasn't been seen since the RAW after Mania. You're telling me they had Braun in three fucking matches on RAW and didn't have time for a Firefly Funhouse?

-I also don't know what's going on with Alexa. It's bizarre to me that they've split up Bray and Alexa and basically given her the gimmick sort of. She's killing it no matter what, but I don't want that at the expense of Bray or The Fiend.

-Speaking of where the hell are they... where the hell are AJ and Omos? Why are the tag team champions missing for three straight weeks?

RAW is just abysmal right now. I feel like I'm watching the same show every week now. And I know it's been like that for a while but it's only getting worse.

And why the fuck did they have Orton beat The Fiend in five minutes at Mania, to have him start RK-Bro with Riddle?

Post Re: Wrestling (WWE, IMPACT, NXT, AEW)
On the flip side, I've only been watching NXT for a few weeks and I'm digging what they're doing. I probably missed the best days but it's clear that Vince has little-to-no control over it. It feels completely separate from RAW or Smackdown.

And I've had positives and negatives for AEW but man... they know how to do weekly TV right now. Massive match for next Wednesday that WWE wouldn't dream of giving away for free. And they've been doing that quite a bit the last few months, including Omega's title win over Moxley. The Parlay sold next week beautifully. And I had more enjoyment watching Orange Cassidy's usual shtick than anything I saw in three hours on RAW.

I'm still not a Young Bucks fan. I feel like they try too hard to be heels. I don't think they have the look to back up the cocky gimmick like Omega.

Why were RAW and Smackdown so drastically different? Smackdown felt like someone was watching AEW. Good six-person tag to start, IC title match (with the ol DQ finish) and of course, the Universal Championship match. Great show overall and killer main-event.

Finally Reigns wins without Jey Uso help. And gets a new theme song.

I knew while watching it how excited you would be

I mean... I kind of get why some are pissed, considering we just lost The IIconics and Mickie James... but I'm cautiously optimistic that the Eva-lution will have a positive impact

Boood and guts should’ve been a PPV main event since the commercial breaks really hurt the flow of the match, but it was an awesome showcase to draw in WWE fans with a much superior product. Next week is yet another stacked card.

Yassss Alexa finally interacting with women.

Hoping she goes after Charlotte but my head says she takes Asuka out. And has her first feud since forever

If all the rumors are true: I read the other day that Bray Wyatt has been experiencing mental health issues since the passing of Brodie Lee, and that's the reason behind the bizarre treatment of him and The Fiend character in recent months (Mania, in particular). Allegedly, he had to be convinced to come back for Mania by Vince.

Interesting regarding Wyatt. I wonder if he feels some survivors guilt over it. Obviously the same thing would have happened if Brodie had stayed in WWE, but to someone dealing with trauma that might not matter.




Also, who has two thumbs and doesn't give a hoot about Wrestlemania Backlash tonight? I mean, I'm happy for Cesaro and might as well watch it since I have Peacock anyways, but damn this show is uninteresting.

Looking at the winners, it was definitely one of the most predictable PPVs ever. Except maybe predicting Charlotte would win, but even that was unlikely (for a bit longer, anyway).

And apparently there was some sort of zombie army attack? Trying to look that up now.

Backlasht was pretty decent. I turned it on right at the zombie match and was like wtf but it was interesting.

Bianca continues her great series of WWE ppv performances since Survivor Series,

Wwe raw championship match was much better than the boring Wrestlemania opener, though glad the former Trump/Lana’s guy retained,

Reigns had another solid main event without interference.

I mean that's DEATH MURDER KILL level move

Backlash was great outside of the zombies, both women's matches delivered, the Braun Lashley McIntyre match delivered exactly as promised for 3 big guys going at it, and Reigns Cesaro was another good one too that made me think Cesaro had a chance by the end.

Wrestlemania Backlash was better than it had any right to. Except the ridiculous zombie match. You could be fooled into thinking Damian Priest has been given a good push since moving to RAW, except when you realize he's been feuding with Miz and Morrison for four months.

It will be a shame if Reigns doesn't have a HIAC match this year to pad his record (feels like Cesaro-Rollins instead?), if Reigns keeps winning Hell in a Cell matches I think eventually you could put it in the storyline that he's overpowered in there like a mini version of the Undertaker at Wrestlemania, and with his new final boss music Cesaro challenging him in the match he's the king of would be perfect.

AEW is back in business after an underwhelming Revolution card (it had good matches, just not as many, and the ending was a bust.) Hot card from start to finish and having the fans in full capacity made it feel even more special. Mox's entrance was especially epic and the match that followed lived up to the hype.

This was my first AEW PPV and it was excellent. For all its flaws, and it has them, it's so much more exciting than anything WWE does.
