    I think there are just enough titles, however NOBODY seems to want to win them. Isn't the idea of a competition to win? It isn't that difficult; everyone should be chasing a championship, which can lead to non-title fueds. Example:
    KO - "Oh, Andrade is in line for an intercontinental title opportunity? I want it, let me fight him for it."
    KO loses. Runs into Aleister backstage. KO mouths off and Black blasts him with a black mass and says he wants Owens next week to teach him a lesson in humility.

    Boom. 60 seconds of dialogue on a 2 hour TV program that involves 4 superstars without the tired trope of putting them together in a LOLTAGTEAM match.

    Can it really be this difficult?

    I actually enjoyed the Lesnar-era and liked the UC, even though I hated the concept of it. Purely artificial one-up over the WWF title, but when it has a Goldbergs and Lesnars fighting for it, it IS prestigious. The mistake was not pulling the trigger on Roman. Whatever you thoguht about him back then, his push only made sense if he captures the UC and brings it to television every week.

    Anyway, does anyone have a recipe about making wrestling on tv highly entertaining in the current PG era? It feels like there is a huge vacuum at the very top, where back in the day we used to have Mr. Mcmahon, Austin, Rock, etc. We have a bunch of athletic wrestlers, but (to me at least) none of them have that... X in them. For months now, the most entertaining people in wrestling for me are Becky, Charlotte, Ronda and Asuka. They are very cool characters who constantly murder eachother. That is fun. You can really love them and you can really hate them.

    Wild Card rule? Stupid as fuck. I don't even try to bash them but these assholes constantly break their own rules and guidelines.

    Holy shit, that RAW read as supremely stupid. Glad I didnít watch.

    Theyíre actually doing a storyline where Vince is up his own ass. How meta. Between this and Samiís character, itís 100% clear this company actively hates its fans. Itís super sad because itís not funny, it isnít good TV, and worst of all, a whole bunch of talented hard working awesome wrestlers are being wasted.

    If the goal was to make it seem like Vince is losing control, mission accomplished. Seriously. I don't know if this whole thing had the intended result, but last night felt chaotic and predictable at the same time. What a shit show.

    Can we have HHH take the Undisputed Era to Raw and overthrow Vince? Like, in kayfabe and for real? With the XFL about to launch, any rational person would want to step aside and hand over control for one of these giant ventures. Hunter is more than ready, and seems more than capable to lead WWE's creative. I sincerely hope this is where it's heading. It's clear VKM has too many irons in the fire between WWE and the XFL.

    Unrelated, word is getting around that your girl is single and has been since September.

    Yeah, I kinda inferred it ages ago due to both of them on Lillian's podcast and what they talked about. Shame but I'm not really invested in superstars relationships.

    However on that note, I will steal what you said!

    AEW/Turner TV deal pretty much a done deal, to be announced next Wednesday. Can't wait to sit in front of my TV Saturday evening at 6:05 again....

    So, we just did a benefit show for me, it was incredible, we raised a ton of money for my hearing aids, every fan I spoke to said it was one of the greatest shows they'd ever seen.. and a company in Maine (WHO I NEVER WRESTLED FOR) raffled off an autographed poster for me on the same day..

    OVERWHELMED with love.

    Variety blows Vince, ignoring recent tumbles on the stock market, and a reportedly unhappy roster.


    “We’re open for business,” McMahon says when pressed on whether he’d consider selling all or a partial stake in WWE. He declines to elaborate.

    And Alexa Bliss is out of the Money in the Bank match after not being medically cleared to wrestle. Not sure what's going on with her, but I've got some bad feelings. She's been "back", but wrestled like 2 matches over the past few months and stuck in her talk show garbage every Monday night, then suddenly she's injured again.

    Word now is that it's not as bad as originally feared.

    Maybe AEW is the wake up call Vince needs. What if they start out beating WWE in rating? Maybe that'll wake vince up. Probably not, but its worth a shot
