    Decent episode of SmackDown - especially the Miz's segment. His digs at Darren Young were laugh out loud hilarious.

    So, it appears Brock Lesnar has failed a drugs test.

    Lesnar's response here

    WWE's statement suggests they're not planning on doing anything but if more damaging details emerge then they might have to act even though deep down, they'd not want to incase they upset Brock but as noted above, it's a great leverage opportunity in future negotiations with Lesnar and setting a message of standards to the lockeroom.

    Wouldn't mind if there wasn't two world championships. At least this way I get to see my boy Cena as champ hehe.

    There's definitely going to be, by all accounts.

    Can see a situation where Ambrose takes the strap to SmackDown.

    Wouldn't care either way about Lesnar on the roids whilst in WWE. It's whilst he's fighting at UFC which annoys me.

    I think it would be really hard to maintain a decent story line if there were one title. Ambrose would have rivals from separate brands which wouldn't work well imo.

    Rules of the draft confirmed:

    - RAW get first pick, and every two picks SmackDown gets, RAW has three owing to it boasting an extra hour of TV.
    - Tag-teams count as ONE pick, unless a GM only wants one specific member.
    - Six NXT picks will be drafted.*

    Absolutely delighted the cruiserweight division is returning to WWE - but it's a shame it'll be on RAW, rather than SmackDown, under Bryan's defence.

    The opening segment of RAW on Monday night was excellent. Shane/Stephanie thrived in their roles, and the choice for GM is great (but the fact they're two babyfaces suggests either Shane may turn, or there'll be a heel authority figure on SmackDown introduced). Bryan's pop was just huge - even though everybody knew what was coming.

    As for the wrestling... it was what it is. Having Enzo and Cena endure a mishap in their 12-man tag-team match was smart, allowing the viewers to feel some dissension among their ranks before they face The Club. Likewise, it was great to see Rusev and Baron Corbin booked dominantly (though it's hard to get excited about the latter right now, with the Brand Extension impending). Corbin completely dismantled the Lucha Dragons, who have gone their separate ways, apparently.

    I think del Rio should definitely enter the IC title picture, and it's awesome to see The Wyatt Family booked so seriously at the minute. The Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens can just run and run for years - a la Shawn Michaels and Triple H - but I'd be looking to split them in the Draft, to make fans wait patiently for their next bout and meeting.

    The final match of the night was just a farce. Tremendous in-ring action, as always, from the two Shield members. But the ending was just terrible booking - and overbooked like hell. The decision was reversed on the WWE Network, apparently, with the match ruled as a draw. But a really bizarre ending which left fans in limbo.
