    Cena is a full blown babyface nowadays, the crowd are on his side. WWE need to use him sparingly, have him feud 3 or 4 times a year and leave after each one.

    So, not only are WWE going to stick with the McMahons as the figurehead of both brands, but they're bringing in TWO GMs for each show respectively. That's four authority figures. How are the superstars meant to get quality air time?

    Regardless, last night's show was great.

    It was awesome - and a big surprise - to see Darren Young become the number one contender for the Miz's IC title. I'd suggest this means WWE are hot on him, with the Backlund gimmick, but we've seen pushes fade away before so I won't jump the gun by saying that. What I will say is this: Young can really benefit by working closely with a heel as hated as fiercely as the Miz is. It's a decent feud, and a fresh match-up.

    Similarly, Zack Ryder going up against Rusev is very intriguing. Again, it's a fresh match up and while Rusev will obviously emerge victorious (rightly so), it's good to see Ryder going for gold.

    Plenty of people are in limbo - Sheamus, Corbin, Crews, Ziggler - but the Battle Royal showcased them, alongside del Rio, and you've got to hope they'll become more prominent post-Brand Extension.

    The less said about the Vaudevillains and their fall from grace, as well as Kalisto/Sin Cara who couldn't be further away from a hot streak, the better. Why are the latter duo losing to BREEZANGO? Bizarre.

    Enzo and Big Cass continue to shine in their feud against the Club. All six men are doing their best to make that feud memorable, and it's refreshing to hear Cena so warmly received from the hefty crowd in Detroit, who are clearly such big marks and huge fans of the business.

    Ambrose and Rollins' segment was out of this world, too. We saw grit and steel from the former, rather than the craziness or silliness that WWE usually make him exhibit, and the latter's cocky and arrogant shtick worked a treat.

    The only misstep was Titus O'Neil vs Heath Slater (boring) and the New Day/Wyatt Family's True Detective-style segment, which was just bizarre. Fair play to WWE for trying something different, though.

    So has the brand split happened, and is Smackdown now worth watching? I'm so lost tbh. Was trying to look up ORton vs Lesnar but apparently it was only announced on Smackdown without a confrontation between the two?

    You ****er

    Brand split is next Tuesday I think. Lesnar match was randomly announced by Booker T on Smackdown last week (Heyman wasn't even there ffs), WWE just wanted to jump on the UFC 200 hype.

    Wouldn't mind them legitimising it as a proper fight tbh. Go the whole hog, have a press conference, a weigh-in, ring announcements. And then put Randy over.

    Basically, WWE has tried to do a UFC-style thing and announce it without a backstory or build-up. Not that it needs it, really.

    I met John Cena in a pub and told him he sucked to his face, he tried to fight me but I set him the one bang punch and knocked him out. Big Show tried to stop me but I picked him up with one hand and slammed him through a table.

    Then Kelly Kelly chatted me up 2 minutes after and we went out for a couple of weeks but I dumped her because she was too clingy.

    I've been offered whether to go to Smackdown or Raw but I said to the leader of WWE that I'm too good for this and don't want to overshadow the other wrestlers.

    Remember when Mark Henry was put with Tony Atlas for no real reason but to mentor him to be a big guy?

    I didnt either until i watched a PPV from a couple years back

    I can't imagine many of us will remember the Colter/del Rio alliance in five years time, either. These odd combinations spring up in WWE time and time again.

    Its those things where voids are filled for those doing nothing.

    Must be good for the legends though, a bit tv time and a pay cheque!
