There's nothing worse than a segment where everyone in the women's division gets to speak.

Mandy Rose from NXT...who I literally never recalled seeing in NXT.

One of Paige's better performances on the stick...or at least one of the better ones they can show on TV.

Ideal outcome: Jordan gets thrown in a dumpster, is lit on fire, and never seen again.

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

3 matches in the last 1.5 hours. Finishes: distraction into finisher, no contest because Paige, and Kane interference. A satisfactory 1.5 hours of wrestling.

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

Is Mandy Rose any good or is she just there for looks? She's been on NXT TV only once, but seems to have a bunch of house show matches under her belt.

Sonya Deville is nowhere near ready for the main roster.

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

It just seems like they wanted to do something to expand the Raw women's division and this was the best fit. As part of a group they won't be as exposed and they didn't have to pluck top talents from an already thin NXT women's division and put them in spots where they wouldn't have fit anyway. Ember Moon just won the title. Nikki Cross doesn't fit that part and is already part of a successful group there. The two Australian girls don't really kick anybody's ass.

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

I marked for the Paige return tbh. Finally we'll have more than four women in the division and something interesting happening beyond everyone coming out to their music and saying they want to be champion. Not too familiar with Sonya or Mandy, though Sonya looked like a badass and I assume they won't be asked to do too much and can just be sponges while Paige does a lot of the work.

Makes me think SD will also get more talent in the women's division, probably the iconic duo.

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

I agree SarcasticRat about Paige, that was fun and even though someone posted about her possible return I think in the spoilers thread a weekish ago, I was still surprised and happy to see her back. When Paige said she wasn't the only person or new person coming back, for a moment I was waiting to hear LIGHT IT UP AJ Lee lol. But some "new" NXT contenders were cool/interesting too I guess.

Once the match was set with Miz/Roman I was not happy . I felt Roman was a lock to take the belt off Miz at that point. I loved Miz holding the intercontinental title, he did that title a great service.

Now Roman has it... I can only hope this leads to something greater for The Miz because he deserves it. As far as Roman holding the belt. Meh... good luck I guess... It will take a lot to fill the shoes of Miz holding the title. Wish him the best.

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

how 20 posts for a RAW is a lot nowadays.

fraley, nothing to go out of your way to see. Highlights were the opening segment, Paige returning but not alone, and Roman/Miz. Other than that, completely skippable.

OMG that was lame as ****. We just came here to say "whoopa" or some ****. Why the need to scream some random **** before you punch Naomi is beyond me.

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

It's pretty funny that they just ran back the same angle, though I guess in kayfabe you could explain it as them being inspired by the trio from the night before.

I really liked Sarah Logan in the MYC and was looking forward to her becoming a bigger part of NXT, but I guess this works too. A bit surprising that her and Ruby are heels now but whatever. Have never been impressed by Liv Morgan but I guess every group needs a hot blonde or else Vince will lose interest.

Ain't Liv Morgan the girl Enzo Amore was dumb enough to cheat on?

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

Just watched the Raw Replay. I did enjoy the show, at least more so than previous weeks.

*Really liked the Paige segment and I am digging her new crew. I am intrigued to see where this goes next.

*For once, I was starting to enjoy Jason Jordan a bit. He kind of had me rooting for him..

*Reigns vs Miz and Shemus vs Dean were both decent matches.

All and all, an ok show.

This was 30 minutes with commercials. It was a wear down match imo. Hated it because it was so long to end on such a lame finish.

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

That certainly changes things, what I saw was the replay on Hulu which cuts out all the commercials.
