  2. It would make sense...that is if Charlotte isn't drafted
    to RAW with no chance of a rematch or payback.

    God...just let it end!

    Have Sasha go over & send Bayley back to NXT.

  3. This PPV is going to be hell to get through. In future ppvs, not every title should be on the line. Not everybody needs to be on every ppv every month.


    If you are not doing brand specific PPV's then you don't need so many titles.

  4. Backlash will be interesting...just to see how many matches
    are booked for it. Their are 9 main roster titles...so one could
    say there will be at least 9 matches on each pay per view plus
    one would have to predict Ronda Rousey will have a match at
    each show. I at least hope she does. I want to see her wrestle
    a 1 on 1 match already...and not against Stephanie.

  5. Daniel Bryan and Jeff Hardy you would presume to be on the card

    Bryan Yes...Jeff...well...maybe?

    I guess it all depends who is involved
    with the title feuds. I like the idea of less
    pay per views as hopefully it pushes the
    performers to a higher level to earn those
    limited spots available.

    Plus with less pay per views...hopefully
    the build up towards them will mean the
    matches themselves are more intense &
    important.

  7. The go home shows will mean more. The titles and feuds that won't be on the pv will take place on the last Raw and Smackdown before the ppv.

    I personally like the idea of champions only defending titles every 2-3 months instead of every month. Makes title matches mean more

  8. A fair call...I just like Champions to defend their titles more often than that.

    Not every week...but at least once a month...on TV or pay per view would
    be fine for me.

    I don't want to see a Women's Champion go 120+ days without a title defense.

    *Looks at Alexa Bliss & flips her off*

  9. Yeah it just pisses me off that the US title changed hands 100 times last year.

    Having the champion be allowed to not defend at every ppv will make it feel that the champion is in a higher position and put more emphasis on wrestlers in the division competing for title matches. Basically make it feel like an actual sport.

    At this rate Nicholas will be a grand slam champion

  10. I think they need a new belt design & some stability in
    the SDL mid-card. Of course now I've said that Jinder
    will most likely be traded for Seth on Monday.

    Apparently the entire SDL roster will be backstage at RAW
    Monday so the WWE are clearly just going to be "winging" it.

    I don't think so...the Plank of Wood isn't putting Nicholas over.

  11. I have a feeling that the AJ vs Shinsuke match is going to deliver this time around. The storyline is set up better with Shinsuke being a heel, and I feel that this will be the improvement they need to have a great match

  12. AJ Vs Shinsuke looking to make up for WM34 I'm guessing.... And I fkng hope so

    Also hope this is the absolute last time I ever have to see Jinder Vs Orton
     
  13. I hope these rumors are fake.

    Is Bliss getting a rematch with Nia?

    I mean I don't care but she's owed one right?

    Edit: Jax vs. Bliss confirmed...

    Rajah.com | WWE Backlash 2018: New Title Match Added To 5/6 Pay-Per-View

    Hopefully its shorter than 10 minutes this time...
    and I'm actually curious to see of Bliss gets the
    title back.

    It happened to Naomi & Sasha...so why not Nia as well?
     
  15. With all the PPV's supposedly being RAW and SD and dual branded, does this mean someone on RAW can contest for an SD title?

    I mean it could be fun, having the odd title switch brands and invasions between shows. (If WWE creative could actually write a storyline)
