I'm hoping that the NXT Women's Champ, who I can't remember the name of... I hope she's at the Women's Rumble. She seems to have a ton of potential to be a very big deal.

Ember Moon (formerly Athena on the indies)

It seems like Joe's pushes get derailed by injuries. Second one in less than 12 months.

Paige, Sonya, and Mandy are called Absolution.
You're either with them, or you're against them.

Sonya and Mandy pledged their undying loyalty to Paige, because as Paige will tell you, she was the woman who started all of this.

Hmmm... why couldn't this have been Emma's story instead of the whining and the social media b.s. about the EXACT SAME THING...

Was I the only one bothered by Cole calling Nakamura "Shin" ? I cringed every time.

Wow... what a great show overall. I've only seen an abridged version thus far, but I was impressed with what I saw.

I'm actually looking forward to another great weekend of wrestling between Takeover and Survivor Series.

The big money is in Jinder winning the belt from AJ after AJ beats Brock, and then Jinder beating Brock in India. But they will probably just have Jinder win the belt back in India.

Jinder is not fighting Brock in India.

Summer and Darren Young were expected. They both weren't doing anything, and Summer is awful in the ring.

Emma though, is interesting. She was getting more air time and in some higher-profile matches. Did she ask for her release?

Considering her only tweet yesterday was that of a broken heart emoji... I'm going to say no.

Roman's a victim of a manufactured push, instead of a natural one.

They had a chance at a natural one, at least one that fans would have been more behind, but they blew it then.
It was at the 2014 Royal Rumble, during which Roman set the new record for most eliminations at 12.
The final 2 were Roman and Batista.

The crowd was going banana for Roman on that night, and had he eliminated Batista, probably would have been on a different trajectory than the one he's on now.

WWE India Tour - get your tickets now! You're guaranteed to see the WWE Champion - Jinder Mahal!

Word has it, that the match will be Mahal vs Owens.... you know... the battle of the Canadians.  :dash_mini:

I am a big fan of Alexa Bliss but it would be cool if Mickie James took the title.  I thought Emma was in the match to be the one to take the fall for Asuka  I'm not aware they have a past.

This is part of WWE's problem. They didn't really acknowledge the past between Natayla and Charlotte before their match at HIAC either.
I hope they play on the Emma/Asuka match from Dec 2015, because it nearly stole the show.

I would have felt better if they came from the audience and were dressed appropriately (even though they now have shirts as we saw the second time they came out).  I don't know their theme song but I suspect it's the same one RR comes out to every week.  Correct me if I am wrong.  Also I wish it was more of a surprise..they gave it away at the end of last week's RAW.

They have really gotten away from the element of true surprise. Everything is telegraphed so easily. It does take away from the enjoyment just a smidge.

Feel free to post your thoughts on RAW.  Oh btw I can't believe the cruiser weights closed the show for the 3rd week in a row and Enzo lost the title.  He's annoying but did breathe some life into the little guys.
  • I liked the promo between Mickie James and Alexa Bliss... it's a fait accompli that Bliss will retain at TLC, but this segment made me want to see Mickie win her 7th Women's Championship.
  • Kind of obvious that Emma would win the opportunity to face Asuka at TLC (they have a good match history from NXT; and can work a good convincing match), but in storyline within RAW's world, it makes no sense in a stop-start sense of Emma's push. You could say she will give Asuka competition (if they parallel the NXT Takeover: London match), or they could completely have Asuka kill Emma outright.
  • Enzo loses the title on RAW, but I bet the match still happens at TLC and I wouldn't be surprised if Enzo wins it back. They have recent history of this with Neville and Tozawa. Enzo should stay a heel... but next year will be interesting when Big Cass comes back from his injury.
  • I like The Shield getting Roman over ... this was part of his aura before all the "Chosen One" crap they handcuffed him with. His peak of full on support from the crowds was the Royal Rumble his lost to Batista.
  • Miz is still awesome.
  • Everything else to RAW was a fast-forward induced blur.

Unless I've missed something, Sami's involvement to help Owens is really a WTF moment and don't know why they did it. Last I saw Sami and Kevin together, Sami was telling Owens to go eat a dick when Kevin was looking for a tag partner. And now he's helping Kevin... don't get it. But like I said, I may have missed something. I tend to do some FF these days.

On the go-home SDL show last week, Sami was trying to give advice to Shane on how to deal with Owens. Shane basically told Sami to go scratch, so that could be part of it. Not taken seriously, and on top of that, being treated like he has on SDL. Could be a ploy to turn heel and join his IRL best friend. We'll have to see where it goes tonight.

They weren't booked for SummerSlam and they weren't on the subsequent SDL that followed (to my knowledge).

1) This violin player doesn't appear to know the theme song.

2) Is there ANY booking decision to make other than a Nakamura title win? I imagine an Osama Bin Laden tribute video would go over better than Mahal retaining tonight.

He's the same violin player since he began in NXT during SS weekend last year.

The Women's title match was clumsy at points.  I am not sure what they can do with Asuka at this point.  Maybe Ember Moon got called up.

The only thing I can think of for taking the belt off Asuka, is someone signed from the MYC.

Was WWE building to a 4 Horsewomen of NXT vs. a 4 Horsewomen of UFC storyline?

This is the spoiler I didn't want to get into when we reviewed the MYC on the A1 Podcast.

The spoilers for the final match, should indicate to you where this is going, at least on some level.

Seems Aries asked for his release because he was frustrated being pigeonholed as a cruiserweight.

Yeah, I finished it.  If you watch the documentary, you can see how jumbled they made it.

I was watching for the Ivory knock-off and I couldn't find her so I figured that it was just bits and pieces.

Is the Documentary on Netflix also?
