Like seriously, that's one of the few ways to keep the crowd up after the opening 30 minutes of the BEAST. Send out a guy the crowd likes to murder a guy the crowd loves to hate.

GD 10-22-2021 09:57 PM

I can't be the only one who's annoyed by the fake crowd reaction.

GD 10-22-2021 09:58 PM

It must be wild to live your childhood dream. Good for Woods.

Slik 10-22-2021 09:59 PM

I didn't even know SD was in my city until today lol ... feel bad for the wrestlers doing a double taping after flight back from Saudi Arabia

GD 10-22-2021 10:04 PM

Oh fuck me! They're doing a fucking title exchange for the women's world titles :nono:

Slik 10-22-2021 10:09 PM

Funny to me because Vince/Dunn hate the name Wichita and they've said it like 300x time tonight on tv...in the past they just don't say Wichita when they host raw or sd

GD 10-22-2021 10:10 PM

50-50 booking? I hope Mansoor gets another win over Ali.

Not surprising they are going a storyline from last year. Lesnar beating up officials and getting suspended indefinitely is straight from the Raw after Mania 31 :nono:

The title exchange is incredibly daft. Further waters down the importance of the titles...considering perception is everything in wrestling.

Glad Mansoor went over.

GD 10-22-2021 10:13 PM

Oh no, it's Ridge Holland.

GD 10-22-2021 10:14 PM

Really excited for Garza and Humberto.

GD 10-22-2021 10:16 PM

Swerve sounds a lot like Cena.

xrodmuc316 10-22-2021 10:17 PM

Oh no they are taking everything interesting about Hit Row and focusing on corny rhymes. NXT Callup Curse striking again :fu:

GD 10-22-2021 10:18 PM

Damn Big E doing an anti-vape commercial.

GD 10-22-2021 10:27 PM

Champion Contenders Matches are back :(

Slik 10-22-2021 10:38 PM

The twitter accounts that keep track of how much ring time women get on brand blue each week going to be in a mood tonight

Slik 10-22-2021 10:41 PM

this show feels like longer than 2 hrs...glad I didn't know about it or attend

GD 10-22-2021 10:43 PM

Ugh, they're going to have Corbin win the IC strap. The worst.

GD 10-22-2021 10:51 PM

I hope some shenanigans ensues and the ladies don't do a simple title exchange. That'd suck.

GD 10-22-2021 10:55 PM

Fuck this! What a bogus segment with all that hype.

Slik 10-22-2021 11:01 PM

Another Sasha/Charlotte feud...smh

I don't mind that.

Besides the petty name calling, the in-ring is going to be quality. It's how worthless titles feel in the WWE.

Titles in the WWe are about as worthless are User names on a message board.
You could be anyone from Curtis to Swiss and no one would know the difference.
Hell Triple A could actually be Brad

WWE gave Sami Zayn some generic theme music.....................

Evil Vito 10-23-2021 09:29 AM

Sami Zayn‘s new theme is absolutely horrendous. If Vince hadn’t already sealed up his spot in Hell, he did now.

XL 11-13-2021 01:46 PM

So they’ve lined Hit Row up against Jinder & Shanky. Meh.
And why of all the guys on all of the rosters and the recently released talent, they’ve promoted Von Wagner? Dude needs a Neanderthal gimmick pronto.

Fenix122 11-13-2021 05:30 PM

So whoever lost the match between Roman and Woods had to bend the knee to the other and since Woods technically won by DQ when the Usos interfered does that mean Reigns has to bend the knee?

He did. He bent it to wear the 👑.

Shit...you're right. Didn't even think about that.

xrodmuc316 11-15-2021 01:36 AM

That was the first one on one match Roman has been in that he did not win in 698 days.

hardy wins in home town

XL 11-27-2021 05:41 AM

These Xia Li promos are ace. Fully expect her to get released before actually debuting or shortly thereafter but they are nice.

Mr. Nerfect 11-28-2021 01:32 PM

I think Xia Li has appeal to the company because they’ll want Chinese stars to try and break further into China. I don’t know enough about Chinese culture to know how important Chinese stars are to that, or how picky they are about who is a star and isn’t. But if it is important to have a Xia Li, then she’s possibly one of the more valuable people in the company. And it’s further proof that, as a promoter, Vince is still three steps ahead of everybody.

This is a really simple little creative switch that could mean so much for the company. The idea of getting heat on a babyface in their hometown works in theory, but it just creates a dank atmosphere for crowds in 2021 (and has for ages). Way more conducive to better ticket sales in the future and crowd energy to have local guys win, pop them and give them someone to follow.

WWE has got such a huge roster, that it’s basically a guarantee they can have a hometown face win in almost every single city they’re in. Not that they should do this every week on TV, but you’ve also got Main Event, dark matches, house shows, etc. There’s nothing wrong with a guy from Dallas, even a lower-card guy, teaming up with Big E, Randy Orton, Matt Riddle, etc. to send the fans home happy.

So that doesn’t become patterned, you can have the occasional close shave for a hometown guy elsewhere on the card. You can use a local jobber for a heel to squash. You can also embarrass hometown heels from time-to-time, provided they are smart enough to work the crowd into rooting against that heel.

I just hope they're not turning her into some generic smiling baby face. The gimmick of her faction in nxt may have been silly and dumb, but individually her character was great.

I don’t know what they’re doing with her.

xrodmuc316 12-03-2021 09:08 PM

R.I.P. Sami Zayn

Supreme Olajuwon 12-03-2021 10:32 PM

Roman v Sami right now on Smackdown Live. This should be a by the books affair with zero shenanigans and should definitely help put Sami over.

Supreme Olajuwon 12-03-2021 10:57 PM

Hope Sami’s contract is up soon
