Respect to Finn Balor for putting Indy guys like Kane over.

I dunno I donít think the reunion hurts anyone. He seems to come off as the most genuinely happy guy out of all three during those promos.

Whyíd thru give her so much offense against Asuka? Thatd be like jobbing AJ to Finn then having Kane squash Finn the next night.


Also while not exactly a release, Neville has not comeback to WWE after walking out a couple of weeks ago.

The ironic thing about the Shield Reunion was that it was only done to get Roman over. And it worked. All 3 guys hide each otherís weakness and compliment each other. Roman as a one man army with bad delivery on the mic doesnít work. So of course heís the one that couldnít make it to TLC

Thatís why they did it, but why use Finn?


That match with AJ was super over with the crowd. Thereís obviously something there. AJ took a clean loss to put him over.


Why squash him the next night? It wasnít even competetive.

You donít have to be and Indy fan to appreciate a great wrestler.


Youíre kind of diminishing guys like Daniel Bryan, CM Punk, Nakamura, AJ Styles, Sami Zayn, Kevin Owens, Finn Balor, Samoa Joe, etc.


Itíd be like calling the guys like Jericho, Benoit, Malenko, Rey Mysterio, Eddie Guerrero Indy wrestlers 15 years ago because you never watched ECW or WCW. Neither of those types of promotions are around anymore, maybe TNA, but WWE is the only exposure you might get now on a grand scale. So itís not like thereís a gap between Indy wrestler and WWE. New Japan is #2 in the world, but on a completely different scene.


Nakamura is an international star and someone really special, but much like Tajiri who felt really unique when he first showed up on WWF doing his kicks, Tarantula, Tree of Woe, and the Mist, they made him ordinary. Theyíre doing that now with Nakamura making him ordinary and on the road to watering down Asuka as just another female wrestler now that sheís on the main roster.


You can also just find clips of these guys on NXT to see how Triple H of all people make people stars with long term booking and good matches. 


Daniel Bryan is just a great example of how things have changed under Vince. There was a term he coined called Grabbing the Brass Ring where you get yourself over despite what everyone else says. They didnít believe in Daniel Bryan, despite being undeniably super over where ever he went. He got himself over, but they didnít think so and tried ignoring it till it was silly to do so.

Good job squashing Balor, it's important to build up Kane.


Made no sense. I no longer want anyone joining the main roster till Triple H has full control after Vince is gone.

AJ vs Balor can be better, but not under last nightís circumstances.


Zero build


Both faces


Only thing between them was that this was a dream match for their hardcore fans that know the history of them in the Bullet Club.


The only story they were allowed to tell was that it was strictly a competitive match.


What they did accomplish was making each other valued again. Both brands have devalued them and this was a reminder that these two are great wrestlers. Finn needed this more than AJ and AJ made him. Finn can now go challenge Brock while AJ goes back to possibly challenge Jinder. Both step backwards but I digress.

The Bullet Club leaders match will be interesting.


The two have never crossed paths.


WWE has a cease and desist against the Young Bucks to never Too Sweet each other. Will AJ and Finn do it end of the match?


Will the Club come out as spectators?


Will AJ and Finn point the finger guns at each other?


Most of the fans already wear bullet club shirts on tv. These guys are the only ones who canít in the arena.

No way. Ultimate Warrior connected with the fans and was super over. There's a reason he was always coming back despite leaving on bad terms each time.


This Roman Reigns thing is unique kind of like X-PAC heat. It's a very personal and unintended reaction .

I'd argue Diesel was better in 95. Yeah he was a vanilla baby face that didn't draw, but he was believable in his character and promos.


Now they're going to reunite the Shield to get Reigns over.

It's never going to work since they inisist on him being the baby face, but deliver bizarre in the middle promos with odd scripted delivery. There's zero conviction in his promos.


If this happened during the Monday Night Wars, Vince would be forced to do something if all his segments caused people to switch to Nitro.

The finish was anti-climatic. Both Joe and Braun being pinned after one F5 hurts them and the story telling in the match.


I suppose all this is anti-climatic since it's leading to Brock vs Roman at Mania. Finn Balor might be next for Brock. That will end in the same way, but might be more fun if Brock is into the match.


I'm guessing Roman will be the one person to kick out of the F5 next year.

It was reported that Cena did bury Baron Corbin. He didn't think he deserved it. He was right though.

Bobby Roode is an old school 80's heel, wrestles like one too. And I mean that in the best way possible. He'll never be a tweener and get cheered like Owens because his motivations in the ring and mannerisms are so clear.


I do agree he doesn't put on great matches, but he is very good at what he does do, get people to watch him get his ass kicked in very good psychological matches.


He's also often compared to Triple H, especially TNA's Triple H. I don't know if Triple H sees that, but he would be a much better protege for him than Seth Rollins was if he wants to recreate a proper successor to him. If anyone has seen Roode's It Factor gimmick, it's pretty much Triple H's run from 1999. Now they even look more alike with the short hair.


None of this really matters if Vince repackages him as a Wyatt family member.

Triple H has pretty much made NXT into his ROH. If this is what we have to look forward to after Vince steps down, then I welcome it. Triple H has complained about NXT not being where he wants it to be due to Vince's interference and NXT stars being called up too early or being misused on the main roster.

Officially joins NXT.

She's claiming to be the abusive one of the two.


There's a theory going around that the two are masterminds like Natural Born Killers and this is a ploy for Paige to get out of her ties with WWE.


I personally see this ending with one of them in jail and the other in that hospital.


Too bad this is the road Paige chose. She and Bliss could have had a great fued.

I wasn't watching wrestling back then, but wasn't Hornswaggle Vince's son or something?

He's just forever going to be Kurt's son?


This is one of those things I didn't want but also left me wanting a bit more. Why didn't they cut a promo together in the ring? Why was it so short?


Kurt in the GM role has been pretty generic and bland. He's being wasted on air. And I'm not sure this is any better.


I'm thinking the Dixie thing might have been better, but not by much. But with her at least you can drop the angle once they realize the WWE audience doesn't know who she is. Jordan will forever be Kurt's kayfabe son if this is a flop.

This had to be 100% Vince. He probably thinks the bi-racial thing is funny and clever.


Out of the two, Gable seems to be the better wrestler and personality while Jordan is bigger and better looking. He's also an Olympian.


American Alpha working with Kurt Angle was natural. I'm not sure this was.

This train wreck is full speed ahead.


Alberto suspended for the time being by TNA now GFW, for alleged domestic abuse with Paige. Paige is still defending Alberto and calling the fan who caught them on tape fighting as crazy.

So is Roman just in his own world where Vince told him you're neither a heel or face. You just do whatever you want. No clear motivations.
