Re: **WWE Raw/Smackdown Viewing Thread**

How do they gimmick the ring without anyone noticing? Do they just do it in front of the crowd during the commercial break?

Re: **WWE Raw/Smackdown Viewing Thread**

I do find it funny that the biggest criticism of Invasion was that Vince made it all about him/his family, and here we are 16 years later with his kids as the GM's of Raw & Smackdown. At least Shane isn't that bad.

Re: **WWE Raw/Smackdown Viewing Thread**

It speaks to how overused that spot is that nobody itt mentioned it. Vince: "two big guys? break the ring.". The answer to big guys, not the big guy, though.

Re: **WWE Raw/Smackdown Viewing Thread**

So why do the refs conveniently forget to officiate during matches?

The entire Shield stayed in the ring to beat up Miz 3 on 1 for well over a minute before finishing him off. Entire time the ref is in the ring just staring at them. Really annoys me.

Re: **WWE Raw/Smackdown Viewing Thread**

I really don't get what they were thinking with this Jason Jordan angle. Like had they heard him cut a promo before? I don't think anyone really could have made it work, but it's just awkward to watch atm, and they're possibly doing irreparable damage to a guy who could have been a solid midcard/tag team in-ring guy.

I've always thought that JJ would turn on Angle and say he somehow faked the whole thing. When I say "thought" I pretty much mean "hoped" because this is one of the cheapest attempts to get someone over I've seen them do.

This is what I thought with the added caveat of HHH being he mastermind behind it setting up Angle vs HHH at Mania.

Re: **WWE Raw/Smackdown Viewing Thread**

I thought that too until last night, but it's still a swerve they will probably do eventually since the gimmick is failing. The problem is that when he turns he's going to get cheered because this stupid angle will finally be over.

Daniel Bryan mocking Paul Heyman was alright there for the most part anyway.

Wow that segment was hard to watch. Why did Kurt Angle do nothing, even look surprised, as Triple H pedigreed his son for no reason?

Announcers didn't even mention why Usos paused at attacking Reigns when they rushed the ring.

We should play a game, only post things you liked.

I thought the Charlotte/Ric spot was really cool.

Shane was a beast as always taking all those shots, I could feel him giving the others a secret signal like ok, moar, do it again, give the crowd what they want, I'm good, just keep on ****in me up.

Re: **WWE Raw/Smackdown Viewing Thread**



Really good decision to strap Charlotte, it's been a long time coming. Only problem, imo, is that an Alexa/Charlotte match is WM worthy and deserves a great build. I hope one day we get to see it. Great moment nonetheless. I thought the whole show was pretty well done, cool Shield pop. The end made no sense though, I especially hate that they used Braun. He just 1000000000000% would not be all about TEAM RAW, especially after he was just on Team Miz and got ****ed over.

Re: **WWE Raw/Smackdown Viewing Thread**

Another thing I hated about the ending is how neutral the announcers were. Look the whole storyline is stupid, but if you're going to do it then you have to commit to it. You can't start the show with Baron Corbin making some dumb end of days pun and have the whole locker room go nuts if when Raw invades at the end the announcers are going to be essentially indifferent. Can you imagine if J.R was the Smackdown pbp guy and Raw invaded? MY GOD, THIS IS CARNAGE, WHAT WILL HAPPEN ON SUNDAY. He would have made you care, made you forget about, at least momentarily, the stupidity of the storyline and just feel hyped. Instead it was just "Oh Braun what a monster", which is exactly what we get when he's on Raw. This **** isn't hard.

The entire Charlotte/Natalya match and post-match was excellent and one of the best things on WWE TV in awhile imo. SD finally has all their belts on the right people, which truly makes it the A show!

Extremely well done. Match was great and post match Charlotte really came off as the girl so truly happy to see her Daddy when she ran to him.

Overall, the women’s matches and angles on both shows are usually much better than the men’s IMO.

Re: **WWE Raw/Smackdown Viewing Thread**

Angle still hasn't said **** about HHH pedigreeing his son. Guess that's gonna be the reason for the turn.

Steph: You wanna see a fight tonight?
Well, yeah, it is a wrestling show.
But why would anyone want to see Braun vs Jordan because they both hate HHH?

Fun Fact #1: Finn Balor is the leader of Balor Club.

Fun Fact #2: There are no additional members of Balor Club.

I always thought he meant he was the leader of his fan base. Pretty sure that's correct.

Re: **WWE Raw/Smackdown Viewing Thread**

Well, that would be better than making an obscure fan the leader of a club named after another member of the club. When WWE trademarked the name, around the time AJ/Nakamura/Gallows & Anderson were signed, the implication was that it was going to be something bigger though.

Like the Cesaro Section but with facepaint and fewer childbirth implications.
