The Official WWE/AEW Thread, Brother!

So... anyone have anything to say about how WWE has now copied off AEW twice now?
Impact copies WWE, ROH and AEW.
ROH copies Impact, WWE and AEW.
AEW copies Impact, WWE and ROH.
WWE copies Impact, ROH and AEW.

That’s what competition does. No different when Coca-Cola introduced Coke Zero. Pepsi copied and made Pepsi Zero. Also no different when one fast food place introduced a 4 for $4 options. And others respond with their own version of it.

So the copy is nothing new in the world of business and honestly not all that exciting.

I still don't understand the point of letting Charlotte be NXT Women's Champ.

My best guess is they thought it would get NXT more ratings, it FAILED MISERABLY (it did), and now she's dropped it.

So now they may have her go crawling back to RAW where they will probably have her reignite her fued with Asuka for the RAW Women's Title.

Thumps up WWE. (/sarcasm)

So Wrestling's kinda going through its own version of the #MeToo move right now called #SpeakingOut. Basically it started when a woman accused David Starr of sexual assault, and it's growing to include names like Jordan Devlin, Matt Riddle, Wolfgang, Jim Cornette, Dave Lagana, Joe Coffey who've all been accused of abuse in some way and they'll probably be more coming.

If this does not change wrestling as a whole nothing will.

Love wrestling. Nothing better than watching big lovely dudes strip down to their underwear and share extended durations of physical body contact with each other. MMMmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

There is some change happening for wrestling when it comes to this topic. Sammy Guevara was suspended without pay and ordered to take classes for his comments (I am happy to see that his pay is being donated to a charity while he is away), multiple wrestlers are being suspended while an investigation is being conducted and the big one is that wrestlers are actually being fired outright for the substantiated claims made against them. Joey Ryan of Impact and Jack Gallagher of WWE being the two biggest names so far. It’s important that they are all being held accountable for their actions.

This Randy Orton/Edge feud has been fire.

It looks like the Undertaker is retired for sure now. Honesty, the match he had against AJ Styles is a great way to go out. It might not get any better than that.

I can't defend this ****. I seriously can't. In all my years as a WWE fan... this is the most atrocious, disgusting, and abhorrent thing they have ever done.

Not only is there now a COVID outbreak in WWE... it was preventable. But did they? No. Because Vince McMahon is the god damn Trump of WWE.

There's only one thing to do at this point. I suggest it's done. NOW.

SHUT

IT

DOWN


I can live without WWE for a couple of months or however long it takes.

There is no defense to this. AT ALL.

I haven't watched WWE since Becky Lynch left. And with many staying home I wonder who they still have wrestling in the promotion right now.

Based on what they have listed on their roster on their website and then disregarding injuries, Lesnar and those that live in Canada there is only two people electing to stay at home: Sami Zayn and Roman Reigns.

NXT UK wrestlers that live in the US are working NXT right now while the ones that live in the UK are getting paid to stay home and safe at this moment. So, yeah, only two have decided to stay home for the time being.

(Kevin Owens was going to stay home but decided to continue working after the mask mandate that WWE has put in place recently.)

I personally think he should have retired after losing the Streak to Lesnar.

Wrestlemania is/was the only time he showed up and i figured it was only because of the Streak. Once he lost it, what was the point in any more Wrestmania matches.

From my observations, since I'm still watching both RAW and SmackDown (mostly because there's nothing else on to watch)...

Both the RAW and SmackDown roster are about half the size of what it was before the pandemic hit. Possibly more.

Randy Orton has been on absolute fire!!! I'm definitely looking forward to his match with Drew Mcintyre. I can't wait to see how things play out when Edge returns because I know they aren't done with him and Orton.

The Stowman and Bray/Fiend storyline has been entertaining as well.

So... about that 2020 Draft... clearly Raw won the draft pool taking The New Day (minus E), Bray Wyatt, Alexa Bliss, AJ Styles, Miz/Morrison, Braun Strowman, Jeff Hardy among others from SmackDown. While SmackDown gets the pleasure of saying it took Seth Rollins, Rey Mysterio, and Kevin Owens as their notable names from Raw. Huge loss of star power to the show that’s on an OTA channel broadcast to more homes than Raw.

One thing that makes no sense to me in the draft is splitting up some of these teams. If you could draft Kofi Kingston, Xavier Woods and Big E together then why wouldn’t you? Or picking both Otis and Tucker instead of just one of them? Maximize your picks and get the 2-for-1 deal (3-for-1 in New Day’s case). Another thing is that the rosters are supposed to be separate starting with today’s Raw (last two weeks it was basically unbranded). And The Riott Squad and Otis (under a mask) were on the show and the three of them are SmackDown wrestlers. I mean, I just want to see some logical storytelling. Is that too much to ask?
