I disagree. They're decent workers.

And if there's one team that deserves those female tag titles it's imo the IIconics because they're the only actual team.

It times like this I hope ToneLa/NewJack is lurcking, reading this and feels an unavoidable compulsion to log back on.

Short of Otis Dozovic and Lars Sullivan wrestling in a "loser has to wank the winner off to completion" match, I literally cannot think of a worse idea than Enzo Amore managing Asuka.

Also: Iiconics are fucking abysmal.

Ha. Asuka being managed by Enzo is maybe a very shitty idea but it might also be very very entertaining. Still think Asuka needs a manager though. Maybe Heyman?

Still think Iiconics are good though. Very entertaining team.

Looking forward to the draft. Hope the WWE champions switch brands.

Indeed, they are garbage.

Eric Bugenhagen from NXT has natural charisma.

Peyton is decent enough. But yeah, Billie Kay is easily one of the worst wrestlers on the roster. She sells like HBK in the infamous Hogan match. But I find them entertaining as characters.

I would like Billie Kay to improve so she’s not left in Peyton’s shadow. She’s the funniest, more charismatic of the duo.

Everyone's going to Smackdown in anticipation for FOX. It will just be Heath Slater, Rhyno and Titus on RAW.

Maybe Kofi and Rollins will switch brands. That would be interesting.
Especially if Xavier and Big E stay on SD. Although I hope they will stay together.

They won’t split up New Day, especially not by putting them on separate brands.

I can't pick this one at all. I am kinda siding with the idea that they will keep RAW strongish for now and have another reshuffle before the Smackdown FOX move but wouldn't be surprised what ever they do. They desperately need some new feuds. Could the big one be them swapping New Day including Cody over for Seth? Put the Universal Title into Smackdown in anticipation of potential future Brock and/or Daniel Cormier angle that FOX seem to be keen on.

Cody?

Freudian slip. Kofi. Thanks for the correction. :)

If Cody ever decides to do a full-on Dusty tribute gimmick as the blackest-white-man-on-Earth then may I be the first to suggest the character name of Cody Kingston.

Edit: just thinking about it, is it not peak-Vince with relation to his questionable portrayal of PoC on his television shows to have a black man appropriating black culture?

Apparently lots of travel issues for the talent trying to get to tonight's Raw in Montreal (according to John Pollock and Meltzer). Not the best night to have a travel issues when you have a planned shake up.

Re: Wrestling: The Baron Corbin Era

Really don't care about this shake up when everyone's been appearing on random shows the last few weeks anyway.

Unless they bring up Undisputed Era for a feud with AJ, Balor, Gallows and Anderson. Booked by Trips. 

MEGALOLZ!!!

So Backlash wasn't their last match together? Well I'm shocked.

They have fucked up The War Raiders already.

"The War Raiders are rebranded The Viking Experience and renamed Erik and Evor."

Oh god I’m just following from work so didn’t even  realise they’d renamed their names too hahaha. So Rowe is now Erik? What about Erick Rowan?!

Balor Vs Andrade this could be great if it turns into a feud.

Ha ha. I've actually forgot to tune in and was watching Pobol y Cwm on S4C player. That is fucking awful. Only Vince could come up with a name for a tag team that avoids the insensitive use of the word "War" to accidentally come up with a name that is rapey as fuck.

The Viking Experience isn't even chantable. It means an end to the excellent War chant the crowd does.

I can’t get over The Viking Experience... just, what. Vince makes some baffling decisions but this one is seriously insane. Sounds like one of those shitty themed  restaurants.

Right i'm turning this off and going to try to quit this shit for good. I've got headphones in as girlfriend is asleep in bed and i've got this commentary team injected into my head. Graves and Young as the absolute fucking worst. It's not even what they say. It's there cadence and rhythm. Just absolute dogshit.

Bye Vince. I will try not to be back.

It's easy enough mate. Good luck with it! I've been out since Titus feel under the ring last year.

I thought I’d shifted them after first Saudi show when I cancelled subscription and Sky Sports. It’s only fact that it’s so easy to watch on snide that pulled me back in.

I'm very much laughing to hide the pain with The Viking Experience. Such was my brain's reluctance to accept it that here was a solid three seconds where I was thinking "who the fuck are this team who look exactly like War Raiders?"
