Bliss has taken a backseat because they are building Asuka and Absolution. 2 women's stories is all they have time for.

I might be the only one but I'm really enjoying the slow Jordan heel turn. His matches are always good and the delusional gimmick is working for him, IMO. I'd be happy if it led to Angle vs Jordan at Wrestlemania.
I think they could have something better for Angle at Wrestlemania, otherwise I'd be pretty happy with that. An Angle/Jordan feud would be great though.

Smackdown was skippable but the twist at the end set up some nice stakes for Clash of Champions. The Shane/Bryan conflict is interesting.

Brian is letting his hair and beard grow. That man is getting ready to wrestle. But probably out of the WWE, when his contract expires next year. I doubt the E will ever clear him, if for anything else, fear of him overshadowing Reigns again. Not to mention the potential for PR disaster if something was to happen to him.

Hey guys, need a little help here please. Friend posted an Elf ON The Shelf picture on my Facebook wall earlier where the elf was all bundled up on a makeshift hand truck with candy cane handles. So I make a joke about Jesse & Festus and the time they were bundling up jobbers on Smackdown and sending them to the show's new network. But she's not a wrestling fan so I was looking for the clips on YouTube. That way I could link her to what I talking about. But I couldn't find them by searching Jesse & Festus directly. Anybody remember who the jobbers were and who they were facing when they were packed up? Seems like one would have been Brad Maddox but I can't be sure.

I respect and appreciate that he does/did everything in his power to make it work.

2 Raws in a row where they put on a few good matches and had some decent feud progression. Props to Sheamus for wrestling with Spinal Stenosis.

Shame they ruined "Woken" Matt Hardy already. I liked how they tied the God that uses him as a vessel to Sister Abigail. That was some straight up cool mythology. But the quick cuts and the 2 minute laughing montage are already annoying.

I'd say we could wait a bit more to decide if it's really ruined. Worst part was definitely that ''Woken'' graphic that would show up at every cut to Matt.

And the cheesy Bray crap they've been doing forever isn't? Jump cuts in the middle of segments that lead to a Bray promo about whatever...his magical appearances in matches he's not in (but he can't win a feud). Why not magically appear in the Rumble and have everyone already outside? or Appear at the top of the ladder in MITB matches to just grab the briefcase?

Here is my thought on the whole situation. If he was given a few months for the fans to buy in to him with a string of wins and a winning fued over a gatekeeper that title push would have been way easier to swallow. I was really torn that I knew he was solid in the ring but was never given much of a reason to care for him outside of how NXT booked him.

All in all while I don't watch with any consistency these days but I don't think he was ever going to get that to fully work unless he had a year undefeated streak. (And probably then if they weren't telling compelling stories about 8 months in he would have had Authority go away heat)

Here is a take on Jinder I had not considered:

The Bray stuff is gimmicky for sure but the Matt/Bray segment looked like a poorly edited fan video with the quick cuts. It worked the 1st time for shock value but annoyed me the 2nd time. Adding the Woken graphic between cuts and 2 minutes of laughing made it cringey. They need to try something different next week.

Your idea about Bray actually using his powers to do something more useful than a sneak attack is cool but too logical so it will never happen.

Milamber, I haven't seen the Matt/Bray stuff - just saw they wrestled, Bray won and that is starting Matt's descent I guess. I'll see the clips when they have a RAW PPV (or the Rumble if that's the next time). That's the (good?) thing about only following the PPVs and random Network shows - I see the highly edited segments. And those promo videos are usually top notch.

Not actually a wrestling comment but it would impact the WWE so I shall post it here.

I have read that Vince wants to restart the XFL. I guess because it worked out so well for him the first time. It is laughable that he thinks he can create a league from scratch that could compete with the NFL. Yes the ratings have been down for the NFL, but any league that has ever competed against the NFL has failed (Well the AFL was absorbed so that was not a failure and AAFC sent three teams to the NFL). Heck even the CFL failed with their American teams.

Vince should just stick to what he is good at and that is wrestling (Even that is debatable after having watched the current day product). He should stop trying to make football leagues, bodybuilding federations, and he should definitely stay away from making those crappy movies. I wonder who actually watches those Marine movies.
