    Big Show's promo last night on RAW was dreadful - and Reigns is being given some awful material on the mic.

    What's the point of Cesaro/Kidd being paired up with ****ing Rose, too? Damages their credibility.

    On the plus side, Rollins didn't look out of place AT ALL with Lesnar/Heyman/Cena. I expect Heyman to turn on Lesnar and align with Rollins soon. Will be great to see. He's a legit main eventer now, and it's come organically compared to Reigns' rise.

    Good to see Bryan back in a programme with the Authority, too. And Ambrose's sketches with the psychologist were pretty fun, but I wish they'd give him some big wins after losing to Wyatt in the ambulance match. The match with Rusev made him look gutsy, so that's a start.

    That's the funny thing, he could've done all this without the MITB. It shows how pointless and counter-productive the MITB quick-fix push to champion is.

    After the first couple of times when it was used properly (Edge with a surprise win and being the Ultimate Opportunist and RVD/ECW challenging WWE), it's just been a way of getting someone they want as champ to be champ without booking him properly, then when he's champ they're too scared to do anything because he wasn't booked properly. Punk, Swagger, Ziggler etc. had infamously awful reigns.

    JBL is doing an awful job of trying to make the Ascension look dominant. Why have them beat jobbers only for a commentator to suggest they are getting fed easy wins?

    The New Day beat Kidd/Cesaro/Rose on Main Event. Why put Kidd and Cesaro with Adam Rose, WWE? Why?!

    I hate JBL as a commentator. Man I wish JR was back. That man was one of few things consistently good in WWE. As for Cole, meh hes alright and the King is a little better

    Ziggler's short lived reign had more to do with his injury though?

    Cole's a weird one. He's not good, per se, but I think I'd miss him if he was gone. He's one of the last remnants of the glory days.

    Always thought Christian would be an epic commentator for RAW tbh.

    Doubt it, it's not like he got the title right back when he was 100% and went on a lengthy reign like other champions who lose the title to injury.

    Caught Reigns' promo on RAW, he lost me as soon as he began that story of the beanstalk. He'll be getting booed at WM at this rate, whole-heartedly by the crowd.

    He started it off OK tbf but Vince, who is apparently writing his stuff, is on the 'fast lane' to ruining him.

    John Cena and Roman Reigns vs. Big Show and Seth Rollins is being advertised locally for next month's WWE Fast Lane pay-per-view.

    Word from within WWE is that this match could happen but it was just announced as a placeholder for local marketing and to help with ticket sales.

    Nothing sells tickets like a Big Show tag match.

    It started off originally as a Thursday night show. Until around 2005.

    I.e. when it got ****.

    I'm guilty of reading the spoilers, too.

    Good to hear Bryan's back in the ring, though. Adds some prestige to the first Thursday night Smackdown.

    Im happy cus when is tarted getting back into it he was just injured. As iconic as the beard is, he doesnt quite suit the WWE champ and himbilly look. Then again, with bard and short hair he looks like a noob.

    Spoilers are also one of many reason why WWE sucks compared to before because people just let everything out and theres no surprises.

    Was watching an interviwe with goldust and Cody (before stardust) and the interviewer said will it be brother to brother their reply was no cus the internet already spoiled it The talks of that match return near WM31

    Hope Heyman turns on Lesnar at the RR and costs him the championship, thus aligning himself with Rollins.

    When Lesnar's contract runs out at the end of his current run, Heyman needs to be kept in the picture in terms of WWE. He needs to stay relevant to the product, and it makes sense for him to be managing one of the company's top stars in the upper echelon (and Rollins is the best heel they have by FAR).

    It would boost Rollins' credibility so much. Imagine their promos together.
