    Lol what an awkward start to Raw after Mania..

    Gotta love the Raw After Mania crowd. Cool to see The Revival come out, although I had them pegged for Smackdown where there size is less of an issue than on RAW. Here is hoping they don't get pushed downward too quickly and get a chance to actually latch on with the main roster crowds. I have a feeling this might work against them for awhile, though.

    Balor coming back wasn't terribly surprising, but good to see a top face return. Maybe he can share some of that babyface magic with Seth.

    Angle as GM will be fun, although he seems to be playing a bit of a character, or overacting or something. It worked, but he seemed a little off from his normal personality that he shows.

    Emma is the hottest woman in wrestling. I will fight you over this.

    Expect a few more names to show up manana, beyond Shinsuke.

    Yeah I heard they were going to do some type of 'draft' or trade system soon but for whatever reason didn't think it would be right after WM, which it totally makes sense to do.

    Who would you like to see moved to RAW and Smackdown?

    The rumor is that A.J. Styles will move to RAW, which I think is a mistake, and Roman Reigns may move to Smackdown, which is probably a good thing for him. I think the tag team division is a tad crowded on RAW and a tad thin on SD, so I would like to see at least one team added to Tuesday. Enzo/Cass makes a lot of sense to go to Smackdown, imo, so I guess I would like to see them head there.

    It also wouldn't be a terrible idea for Charlotte to move over. Claim she has done it all on RAW already, so she is coming to Smackdown to dominate these women now.

    I also think it is time to pair Bo Dallas up with his brother, Bray Wyatt and let them be a tag team for awhile. Something to help freshen both of them up.

    I watched Raw talk, ive given goldberg a bit of criticism but honestly, what hes done to at least have the image of what Goldberg used to be, the amount of work he did to get back to that image despite a quite bit of anxiety of walking in the ring in tights at 50.. he did a lot for the wwe and id say this run was better than his first run in wwe.

    I wouldnt put it past wwe to have him back for the Royal rumble, tease a fourth match with Lesnar, but having Roman reigns get over by throwing Goldberg off the top rope and setting up Roman vs Lesnar.


    But thats about it, theres nothing else left for goldberg, hes not going to become Kane and lose to everyone, and hes not going to bury new talent like Cena

    I really really really hope that WWE takes advantage of Brock and Kurt being on Raw together. They have so much history, would be cool for them to interact

    While I like the idea of Bo being a member of the Wyatts, i would just feel bad for Bray, he was WWE champ, and looked like his career was just about to take off, and then WrestleMania happen.

    Agreed, but his character is so stale and broken (delete!) at this point, that I think having actual family around him and being able to rely on each other for awhile, might be a good thing. Might help inspire some new creativity out of both of them, as well. Bray and Bo Wyatt...the True Wyatt Family. They would add a lot to the thin tag division and can still do singles matches, as they see fit.

    Yeah I think it would be best for Roman to head to Smackdown as RAW is crowded with Finn Balor and Seth Rollins on the face side of things and have him be the face of that brand. I don't mind AJ heading over to RAW as he's wrestled everyone on Smackdown already and you can get fresh match ups between him and Rollins, Balor, KO and Joe. I'd move Sami Zayn to Smackdown too and Ziggler to RAW just because.

    I would move New Day over to Smackdown, there's clearly nothing for them to do on RAW and I'd also move Cesaro/Sheamus too because once they break up I think both guys would benefit from being away from RAW's crowded roster. Probably move the Revival over to Smackdown too and let them dominate the tag team ranks there.

    For the women, I'd actually move Sasha Banks over to Smackdown and Nattie over to RAW. I feel like the WWE will want to keep their best women's wrestler in Charlotte on RAW.

    I like the idea of Bray and Bo teaming up too. Bo has no use right now and Bray has just been booked terribly since his Cena feud. Maybe that will give him a shot in the arm.

    I also think it would make sense to move the Cruiserweights over to Smackdown too.

    First time in a while that I watched all of Raw and I enjoyed it, Balor entrance is so cool, I assume that Rollins and joe will feud now and Balor and Owens for the U.S. title

    Did the WWE force Jeff to make the Swanton Bomb "safer"? His swanton is so close to the corner now, and he hits the opponent with mostly leg now.. looks ugly..

    Interesting RAW 'draft'. Ambrose, Miz and Bray Wyatt to RAW. Smackdown is pretty thin so you'd have to think that means Owens is headed to Smackdown. I also wouldn't be surprised to see Braun going there too. And still think Reigns will go as well. I wonder if Balor might be headed over too. Smackdown needs stars in the worst way.

    Moving owens to smackdown would also mean jericho goes to smackdown, temporarily at least. But you have to move him, i mean smackdown only has the hesvyweight title and tag titles at the moment..

    Ambrose going to RAW was needed badly.. he was getting burried hardcore, didnt even make the cut on the match card at Wrestlemania.
     
  17. Samphin

    Samphin Κακό σκυλί ψόφο δεν έχει

    It will be evened out tonight. Also, don't be surprised if Smackdown's roster is bolstered by more NXT call ups as well. But if I had to guess, Enzo/Cass, Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, Charlotte and possibly even Brock (if Bray beats Randy at their next PPV, he takes the World Title to RAW).

    The top of the card would consist of AJ Styles, Randy Orton, Kevin Owens, Nakamura, and Brock Lesnar, if that came to pass. That's not too bad.

    I do kind of wish there was more backstage interaction between the GMs on this "Superstar Shakeup" No explanation of how it works, or what the thought process is for getting one and not the other, etc. I feel like WWE screwed up in not giving us that.

    Yeah I agree. It would have been cool to see inside the RAW or Smackdown War Room with Kurt Angle and Stephanie discussing talent or having to call up a wrestler on the phone and tell him he got traded to Smackdown, something cool like that. Treat it like an actual sporting event trade deadline or draft.

    I wouldve loved to see Triple H go through with the plan of forming an alliance with samoa joe, kevin owens, and etc. But looks like those plans have been scratched. KO will bring a lot of life to smackdown live tho. Looks like the world heavyweight title may end up back in Raw.

    Smackdown is still very light on talent. Basically the shake up turned out to be Miz, Ambrose and Bray for Owens, New Day and Charlotte.

    Apparently the Big Show has retired. Hes had an amazing career.

    The funniest story hes ever told was winning the title from Hogan and Hogan telling him he now has to wear the strap everywhere he goes for the world to get to know him that he is the man. He actually took his advice and had the belt out at the airport and Sting went up to him and said what the hell are you doing? Big show toldhim what hogan said to him and sting replied, put the belt away, you look like an idiot. Hogan jerked the rookie.

    Meltzer said this week that there's currently no plans for Paige once she's cleared to wrestle again. My guess is they put her on the road on house shows for a bit and see how she is. If they don't feel like they can trust her with high profile storyline then just don't put her on TV. I hope Del Rio is worth it for her because it seems like he helped destroy her career.

    Sheamus hooked me up with tickets for Payback. I am hoping I can get to the back and eat more of that sweet, sweet catering.

    It was originally announced for the title but once Bray officially moved to RAW they stopped promoting it as a title match.

    Well, if they did the house of horrors match first ten minutes in real time at the side of the titan tron, i cant imagine what it would look like. Would they have put in a human size dollhouse and have Randy Orton and Bray play "house" for ten minutes?

    That match was horrific. And the funny part was watching the announce team trying to promote it afterwards. They all looked like they wanted to vomit after witnessing that pathetic display of entertainment.

    Yeah I'm completely out on the Bray Wyatt character. What once was a cool concept and something different the WWE totally killed it to the point where I pretty much groan when he comes on screen. His interviews are stale and just ramblings of nothing, I don't think his in ring work has really improved. I just don't understand how they dropped the ball with him but yeah.

    I think that match and the wrestlemania match ranks up there with the "electric cage" match TNA had a couple years ago, where the wrestlers would pretend to get electricuted if they touched the steel..

    I was at the PPV and the live crowd completely **** on the House Of Horrors match, and for good reason. Not to mention the fact that when the ENTIRE PPV was over, and I left the arena...it was still light out. Yet...completely dark outside for their match.

    The lines for beer and the bathrooms were long during that debacle.
