PAC vs Page is off due to creative differences... Really s***. AEW is garbage. Long live some other organization.

In other news, I'm going to Evolve in July. At ECW arena. :)

Sweet, so they're the new late WCW where the wrestlers have all the creative freedom. What could possibly go wrong.

On the Ashley Massaro death, have a read of this affidavit she released when she joined the concussion lawsuit. Quite a disturbing read, the sexual assault part is very hard to read. Not that we didn’t already know but WWE really is a abhorrent, scummy company. Poor lass

Man, I just finished reading it all. That is some f***ed up s*** that just kept getting worse. That poor woman probably killed herself over all of that and the things that happened to her.

Some of the MITB matches were quality. AJ / Rollins was class and the main event was f***ing nuts. Surely the lads on the roster must hate brock?!
Could it have feasibly climbed high enough to leave the atmosphere? ???

Going to stop watching it for a while. Got back into it in 2015 (no idea how really) after a ten year hiatus, and slowly wound down to only watching the big four and flicking through other PPVs. While reading up on the weekly shows for anything that might be somewhat interesting.

I'm enjoying the odd episode of impact much more than a main WWE PPV. Will keep an eye out for AEW when it kicks off.

WWE are making more money than ever, have the best roster ever talent-wise and yet manage to be creatively bankrupt.

It was pretty good for the most part, but the ending basically ruined it arl.

Altho I ff'ed through Miz/Shane. I refuse to entertain any more Shane matches.

Really enjoyed Seth/AJ and Men's MITB match. Both well worth a watch.

The women's MITB is entertaining too iyam. Just constantly on the edge of your seat wondering how Dana Brooke and Mandy Rose on the top of a ladder is going to end up. Genuine fear that someone will end up crippled.

I thought both Money in the Bank matches were entertaining, and that Styles vs. Rollins found a nice balance between Rollins' tendency towards spot-heavy matches with lots of near falls but a lack of psychology, and the slower grappling-oriented matches Styles has put on against the likes of Jericho, Nakamura, and Bryan, which I enjoy because they're something different, but they do sometimes lose the crowd. The middle of the show suffered: I thought the cruiserweight match was really poor, unusually for Charlotte at least both women's title matches were sloppy, and then by the time we got to Reigns vs. Elias it felt like we'd seen too many quick falls. I also agree that I'm just not interested these days in anything involving Shane.

Brock is a Catch-22. Giving a prominent role to a part-time wrestler reduces the opportunities afforded to others, and it can take focus away from the weekly show, but on the other hand if WWE were capable of building more stars and if they had more stars on the roster, they wouldn't need to rely on an outside name. In the ring, more often than not, Brock is one of the best they have: nobody is better than him when it comes to psychology and selling, which is where so many of today's wrestlers fall down, and he has provided some of the highlights of the past few years in matches against Balor, Bryan, Goldberg, and Styles. And perhaps it suits to have him as this sort of looming spectre, adding a frisson of excitement without holding up the belt.

The Brock thing just highlights the fact that Vince has no long term storytelling plans. They decided 2 weeks ago that he would win - where’s the buildup?

There are no stories at all that the crowd can get behind. It’s all week to week - why not spend the rest of the year building up to WrestleMania with one of the other guys with the MITB gaining momentum to get the belt? Give them someone to get behind.

Btw, Alexa bliss on Raw with that cup of coffee was amazing. She’s the best thing on that show. Looking forward to seeing who Bray feuds with first though. Needs to be a big player and he needs to win it easily.
