No way will Vince McMahon be giving up control to anyone, especially those 2 :lol:

Honestly I think Heyman and Bischoff were given those roles to please the networks. McMahon is a control freak.

Or to stop AEW hiring them?

Nah, come on. Heyman is already under contract with WWE for who knows how long :lol:

Bischoff...maybe at a stretch but I just don't buy that. If anything it'll be that FOX wanted him because of what he did in 1996-1999. Bischoff will likely have a ton of connections in that world.

Any real wrestling fan would be watching 3rd generation copied VHS transfers from tape traders of 1999 CZW and 2002 Ring of Honor. Probably a little bit of IWA-MS from 2001-2002, too, see Chris Hero v CM Punk a billion times so you can post on the internet about how you saw CM Punk before he went to WWE. Let's not forget a little bit of 90s NJPW and AJPW, can't forget that you're a huge Japanese Wrestling guru, too. Black Tiger? Yeah, I'm a fan of that. Rocco was the best. I mean Eddie had a good stint as Black Tiger, but Rocco made it what it was.

Then you can watch a little bit of BJW and melt your mind at some of the dumbest hardcore wrestling you'll ever see, to the point you'll tell people that Necro Butcher would have been a huge star in the WWE. Then after you're third acid drop of the day, you're all set for DDT and CHIKARA's antics.

Thoughts on Bray’s return?

Pretty good, scared the s*** out of my daughter.

Assumed he’d had went after a heel?
Could it have feasibly climbed high enough to leave the atmosphere? ???

I do wonder if he's gonna go after both heels and faces, as different characters.

It needs to be kept as a gimmick.

Just have him keep popping up and ruining matches, or tormenting people back stage. As soon as he starts wrestling you're just reminded that it's just Bray in a mask.

Bray is talented enough in the ring. They just need to get behind his poosh, and not f*** it up.

Wouldn't bother getting too excited. They'll go to the well too often with it and it'll be dry before he gets anywhere near the title scene. Trading wins with Lashley, Corbin and Strowman by the end of the year.

Nevermind Brock Lesnar is back and everyone is really happy to see him with the belt again. Feels fresh...

Probably has something to do with that irish guys alter ego.

Nah, they can’t have the fiend v the demon. Nobody comes out good from that. It’s because balor is having 2 months off.

I'm praying for AEW to succeed but they need to get a few big buggers signed up first. I don't share Vince McMahon's obsession with enormous men, but you definitely some Earthquakes and Diesels.

They need to drop some of the tacky Indy s*** as well. One comedy wrestler per show is enough.

I'm looking forward to seeing more Omega and MJF.

Also, ITV is a rotten TV deal for them.

Bray is an immense talent, no doubt about it. It's such a shame that he's a victim of his time. 20 years ago he'd have been right up there with Undertaker, but the crop of writers they have today simply aren't in Bray's league. They can't keep up with his mind and they don't understand him, nor do they know what to do with him. Same goes for guys like Elias, Miz, and the same will definitely happen with guys like Velveteen Dream when he gets called up.

It looks like they've already reverted to type with this new version of Bray Wyatt. He'll end up just being a wardrobe change.

I saw a few highlights of the RAW Reunion on twitter (stopped watching RAW and Smackdown a few years ago) and it's pathetic that they could have so much top brass talent there in one night and do so little of interest with them. Makes me think back to RAW in 1997/98 when the show was full of fuel and people wanting to vent about real s*** going on.

Surprised no-one has mentioned, but Bray's return was pretty spot on from entrance to match.
