    I would say this is a virtual guarantee, and probably on Cena's first night back, being Memorial Day and all. The return of the US Title open challenge should make for some great fresh matches with all this new talent though

    Foley quit the Smackdown announcing job he briefly had because Vince screamed something in his earpiece that highly offended him. He never stops talking to the announcers. He talked about it in one of his books, the one no one read because WWE didn't promote it because he was in TNA at the time.

    That's a lot more travel though. (Kind of.)
    Lots of spots opening in TNA. Ares, Samoa Joe and Bobby Roode all in NXT now. I can see Cody and Dustin there easily.

Most live their regular life between tours. In fact, I am pretty sure Karl Anderson lived right in Cincinnati throughout his entire tenure in NJPW, and he probably had more matches there than any non-Japanese in many years. Anyway, agreed that Dolph in NJPW could be fun but i can only imagine him taking the crazy bumps he does in their ring, and the proclivity for neck-first bumps over there, can you imagine with his bumping style?
    Karl Anderson still resides in Fairfield.

Couldn't at least have had the Usos broken up one or two of those pin attempts?

    And then. One spear. Pin. Over. No one is kicking out of his finish, that's for damn sure. I guess I should be glad one finisher is still protected nowadays.

    AJ took some hard bumps too, hope all is well for his long-term future in WWE, he ain't no spring chicken though they sometimes portray him as such.

    Oh, and Rollins so clearly is going to be a babyface though they brought him back as a heel, and they'll wonder yet again what they are doing wrong when Reigns is booed out of the building at MITB or wherever they face off.

    On a non-complaining note, man was the four-way IC match awesome or what? A great accomplishment too because multi-person matches are often so hard to get MOTYC status on, but this match had perfect timing and tons of great spots. Kudos to these four fellas, and that includes the underappreciated Miz!
    IC match was phenom. One of the Miz's best performances ever. Cesaro, Zayn and Owens always deliver.

    I can't stand Reigns. AJ is one of my guys. I hope he gets a LONG run with the WWE title someday.

    TNA is a sinking ship. I hope Cody goes to ROH. I 'd love to see him in Chikara.

    They need a better TV deal, for sure. ROH is a toilet factory of good wrestling performed in malls. ECW Lite with the same graphic package.

    Indeed, and his brother recently signed a full-time deal with NJPW as well, and is in the coolly-named Guerillas of Destiny tag team with Tama Tonga, the current IWGP Tag champs, in fact. Tonga Roa is his NJPW name. He had a cup of coffee in WWE as Camacho a few years back, who IIRC, had a gimmick of a street-tough Mexican from the barrio... yes, a Tongan was cast in this role.

    I still haven't quite come up with the words to express my distaste for how WWE wasted Cody Rhodes' talent, he's been ready to be a big time player since his undashing gimmick took off in 2011 and they just refused to ever give him a real shot at the brass ring.

    I liked Camacho in WWE/NXT, thought he had potential.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    There's a parallel universe out there where Cody Rhodes and Wade Barrett tear the house down at a Wrestlemania, with Rhodes finally overcoming and winning his first WWE World Title.

    Chikara has better production values than ROH lol....

    ROH product is quite good IMHO.... TNA iis better when its not trying to be the WWE.


    I never cared for Wade Barrett.... he should have been booked as a monster and I thought he had no charisma on the mike. Though I think he's WAAAY better than Sheamus.

    A SmackDown shakeup is about to completely reshape all of WWE. Beginning July 19, the second longest-running weekly episodic program in television history, SmackDown, will move from Thursday to Tuesday nights and air LIVE each and every week — for the first time ever — at 8/7 C on USA Network, the exclusive cable home to WWE’s marquee properties.

    This bold move will have major ramifications for all of WWE and exemplify the New Era, as both Raw and SmackDown will each feature their own unique rosters and rivalries following an imminent Superstar draft.

    hell to the yes. WWE got a lot weaker overall when they eliminated the brand split.

    Moving Smackdown to a live show is an outright game changer. The live/taped dintinction always branded Smackdown as the B show, and now that won't be the case. In fact, given that SD won't air opposite Monday Night Football in the fall / winter, you can make the argument that Smackdown is going to be the better show to be on.

    I'm curious how they do the split, though. They don't have a deep enough women's division to split them, IMO -- and the tag division is only now getting healthy enough to have interesting non-title feuds. Also, do you split up Reigns / Ambrose / Rollins and kill the potential for a Shield reunion (even though each one of those guys is a talent that could carry a brand)? Do you move the little guys to one division and ressurect the Cruiserweight division?

    Excited to see where this goes.

    WWE Needs the Cruiserweight Division in the worst way. I hate the U.S. belt, it should be retired. Keep the IC as it has more WWE history.

    Really, WWE needs an X Division. Best thing TNA ever did.

    You could put the women's division on Mondays and the cruisers on Tuesday.

    The draft will be interesting.
