    RAW:
    Rollins

    Balor
    Zayn
    Owens
    Cesaro
    Sheamus
    Swagger
    The New Day

    SmackDown:
    Ambrose
    Styles
    Cena
    Orton
    Wyatt
    Miz
    Ziggler
    Del Rio
    Kalisto
    Crews
    American Alpha


    That's enough pretty stuff on each side right there for me, I actually think RAW might be the stronger brand after initially preferring SmackDown. I just wish Big Show, Kane, and Mark Henry would go away already. And I'd love to see Bobby Roode skip NXT entirely in favor of the main roster but hopefully he becomes a big player in NXT.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    truth, but frustrated with the product numerous times and the WWE banner includes JCP's NWA, WCW, WCCW, etc which I adore.

    I was NWA guy tried and true. I 've never been to to a WWF/E event. I do have WWE network - mostly for NXT and PPVs and classic stuff (more JCP NWA!)

    I 'm a HUGE Chikara fan even though some of the stuff is nonsense - at least the storylines ALWAYS make sense.

    I'd be happier if Smackdown didn't have Cena, ADR and Orton -- because you just know that the minute ratings stagnate that the strap (or whatever passes for a World Title on SD) will go right around John Cena's waist, and he'll be feuding with Randy "Can I get my check as soon as I get back to gorilla?" Orton endlessly.

    I'd wish they would have just gone all-in with Smackdown as the show full of guys Vince doesn't like/get (Ambrose, AJ, Wyatt, Ziggler plus guys like Zayn and Cesaro) v. having it be guys Vince doesn't get plus 2-3 people who he can use to just bury the hell out of them.

    Also, Mauro Ranallo getting saddled with useless-pile-of-humanity-in-a-headset JBL just seems like an extra kick in the dick to anyone who had hopes for things changing even a little bit.

    I didn't mean to sound flip but it reminds me of this joke: Two elderly women are at a Catskill mountain resort, and one of 'em says, "Boy, the food at this place is really terrible." The other one says, "Yeah, I know; and such small portions."

    With Reigns in the doghouse, I could see Rollins going full face. (Someone will have to-- this is a roster of heels, pretty much.) Balor will come in a face, but he works so well as a heel. Interesting too that he's on RAW with Anderson and Gallows, but not Styles. I'd have bet a bunch they'd be a modern iteration of the Four Horsemen. Young may get a push with Backlund as his mouthpiece. Neville might also get a big push.

    He actually was back on TV, including last night on SmackDown, for a few weeks after the charges got dropped. But apparently he's being booted to pre-show activities.

    Probably tired of travelling for SD tapings. This way he's needed half as often?

    Lawler is not a fresh voice as the WWE is doing a facelift. I would nt be surprised if he's not doing work for the WWE network in some capacity and brought back for special events. I preferred Lawler the wrestler vs the commentator.

    If they could get rid of Michael Cole - that would be awesome.

    Truth here. WWE has a monopoly in some sense. TNA's product is not good, and ROH's production just seems off. I don't get AXS so I can't get NJPW. I did Chikaratopia ($8 a month) for awhile but couldn't make time for it (though I have digitial versions on older shows of theirs with Caesro, Chris Hero, Gargano, etc).
