    Filler Raw before the draft, no wonder why they had it in f--king Bakersfield lol.

    Also why can’t they just keep the draft in one night anymore? These multi night drafts don’t even feel like real drafts. Just do it all on one show and get the ball rolling the very next week. Nothing has killed my interest more than the wilcard rule and the interbranded rosters

    I'm not saying have him lose. It's fake, they can do whatever they want. Seth has been a geek for weeks and he got booed out of the building. DROP THE TITLE.

    I don't think the character of the Fiend wanted the title, I think it was to expose Seth and his "dark side"

    If you have time, go back and rewatch the match, there's a lot of storytelling in it and plot points to the Fiend character and what he was trying to do to Seth.

    I agree, though Seth is a Goof, turn him Heel or drop the title.

    If the Fiend doesn't want the title, don't have him challenge the champion, first of all. Second - while there was *A* story, there was zero psychology to that match. The monster trying to destroy the babyface over winning is a standard wrestling story, which they failed at.

    Matches are supposed to build, not immediately devolve to finisher after finisher after finisher. It means absolutely nothing.

    Bray is modeled after horror villains, particularly slasher killers. There's a reason these movies rarely go longer than 80 or 90 minutes - they aren't made for long term storylines.

    It was really telling how little they brought up the HIAC match on Raw...even if Vince laughing is true, he definitely didn't double down on his decision on Raw.

    As bad as it was, I'm still looking forward to the draft Friday...I'm admittedly a sucker for the draft shows. Especially since this is going to be a real draft show and not just one those stupid "superstar shakeups" where people just randomly show up with no explanation.

    I think it's pretty cool how they're presenting it as Fox vs USA as far as who is making the draft choices...it's much more logical than the normal Raw vs SD shit.

    I personally see his character modeled after demons or demon, even so from the beginning at FCW.

    Nothing about his character screams "serial killer" to me..lol but whatever the match WAS shit, but there was more to it than the shit ending.

    oh, well, on to the draft, it should be entertaining, I always look forward to these things

    Oh christ lol, semantics. I haven't had to have arguments about whether a horror villain is a demon or person or witch or whatever in like 6 years and I'd like to keep it that way.

    Cain signed a long term deal I guess so that kinda sucks for me cuz I got no interest in seeing a retired MMA fighter get a big push.

    worried they’ll have him win the rumble or some shit, I mean his first match is already a title shot lol. It’s a joke imo.

    yep much better than last week's imo..liked what they did with Bayley too..gotta assume she goes to SD in the draft with Banks over there. Bray to SD too, was kinda hoping he'd stay on raw but oh well.

    @dna hits Orton went to raw in case you didn't see.

    @WrestlingBros So after just 4 months, Eric Bischoff was fired from WWE this afternoon lol Bruce Prichard is taking over as lead writer for Smackdown.

    While I'm surprised it was only after week 2 on Fox, when a big part of this job was supposed to be dealing with the Fox executives...the rumors of Vince basically having to tear up and rewrite his shows every week were not a good sign for him. I do kind of feel bad for the guy though seeing as he and his wife just moved all the way across the country to Connecticut to live by WWE headquarters lol

    The Fin heel turn was f--king awesome. I'm so bummed it got spoiled for me though since I was watching AEW live and saw it on twitter lol I was just thinking a couple weeks ago we never have any shocking heel turns anymore and we finally get one and I spoiled it for myself by seeing it tweeted about.

    I thought it was cool he didn't join the Undisputed Era and remained a lone wolf type, by himself going after Gargano. I love the UE, but Fin joining that group wouldn't make a ton of sense. I would like him to join AJ and Gallows & Anderson when he goes back to Raw though. He has really needed to turn for a while...he's desperately needed a refresh after what Vince has f--king done to his character for the passed 2 years.

    To wrestle? Probably for a big match or two, or three. Problem is, he was phased out a long time ago and he has a much better situation right now. He slowed down a lot at the end, natural with how hard he worked with that body and being the guy for so long. As far as being an active wrestler touring, he's done. But who knows. Movie career could fall apart, WWE could fall even further, who knows.
