Other thread was closed...so here we are.
Anyone else excited for AEW Dynamite tonight?
He'd be one hell of a heel if he actually WAS the person ripping off the fan. Make it so, Vince!
Been awfully quiet
Anyway anyone excited about the so called nxt 2.0

I still watch every week. Some of the changes weren't for the better (I dislike how the announcers have to keep plugging what's happening on the main roster, I swear they weren't doing that before), but the actual in-ring product is still solid. I'll keep watching until it's not.
RAW, SmackDown, Dynamite, I usually just keep on as background noise. But NXT, thanks to Peacock, I can watch when I want to so that is pretty much the only weekly 'rassling show I will sit there and pay full attention to.
Well then I’m glad I’m not watching wwe then
So wwe cancelled their Canadian events
You know wwe can be better than what they are doing. I’m not gonna rsstate what has been said but if the company wants to put out a trashy product then let the true wwe fans watch the junk
There’s a reason why ratings change every week based on who watches what
I just feel aew is doing a better job than wwe
I understand some stuff has to be scripted to a point
Problem is as long as Vince is in charge wwe product will decline. And if you get unhappy talent then things start to trickle down from it
I just think having split brands at time ago was a good and fresh creative idea
I just think maybe it’s time to junk the idea
If talent is appearing on both shows because of certain script aspects go back to having two general type of shows
That was the initial idea
Having drafts for both brands is one thing. Being successful and purpose execution has been flawed
Releasing people just because you wanted them not to be on rival company when signed in the first place is a bad excuse of financial business
Here’s what I would do if I was in charge
Feel free to comment
1. Keep nxt as a developmental show for developing talent it’s almost a clone of aew dark
2. Ditch main event matches and make a recap best of the week programming show
3. You want to separate talent into brand shows get rid of some of the backstage interviews and skits it’s pointless to keep doing the same skits with same talent
Have interviews in place of either before or after the matched
Yes I know your gonna say there doing that but is it productive necessity.
Again just my opinion
Again part of it is the scripted writing
In aew they don’t have prewritten promos which wwe needs to quit doing
You think nxt talent aren’t going to be the only ones complaining.
Anyway you either like my ideas or you just don’t bash hard them just my opinion

I'm sure I've said this in here before because I always say this when this topic is brought up, but the original 2002 brand split was a good idea and they executed it well. If you wanted to see Cruiserweights you had to watch SmackDown (or Velocity, which for a while was known between my friends and I as "The Paul London Show" because he was killing it every week on there). If you wanted to see the Womens title defended, you had to watch RAW. I preferred how they did it in the beginning where there was one Undisputed World Champion who had to defend against challengers from both brands and the same for the Tag Titles.
Eventually it started to feel a little watered down when they added a second set of tag titles and another world title. And now it's even further watered down, because both shows look and feel exactly the same, except one show is one hour longer and has a title that random dudes that creative has nothing better for will chase after for some reason.
I do give credit to Heyman when he was "in charge" (quotations used because in the end we know Vince is the one in charge of everything) of RAW's creative. The Mexican dudes were getting much more TV time, so were guys like Ricochet and Viking Raiders, and that seemed to come to a halt when he was removed from his position.
So Jeff hardy got sent home from a show
Chances of him being let go or kept
I know the company gave him chances sort of speak. Should they let him go now or give one more chance
I read he maybe was drunk or something
Looks like styles and omos breaking up
Rumor they want to push omos as a separate singles wrestlers
I read this would have been done sooner than now
Well read recap from nxt
Gargano possibly done wrestling
O reily done with wwe rumors of him going to aew
WWE is no longer going to release home videos going into next year and are liquidating Titan Towers. Guess they're just going to all-streaming.
Who would buy wwe? Disney? One of the networks?
> Who would buy wwe? Disney? One of the networks?
I’m sure there are plenty of potential buyers out there, if the price is right. Just seems Nick Kahn is trying to angle the company into a more sellable position lately.
Well I actually agree with wwe cutting ties with
Interesting if he goes to aew after his no compete clause or he hangs up his wrestling to better his life situation
With streaming popular now you movies being made by Amazon and Netflix so not surprised
But I’m shocked they aren’t doing any talent collections they definitely would make money if people would pay to watch them
Not everyone had access to computers for streaming but most TVs are smart TVs for most part anyway
Sorry to be off topic but fits in current discussion in the thread
Jeff hardy was released by wwe
