      Not really, they have the attention of maybe like 400k people or so. That'll go up though!! Then way down again after Christmas. But hey, they didn't have to go to SA, so that's nice.

      1. We're sorry, Dana & Liv 😔
      3. We're sure Johnny will have a storyline with Finn but surprised he didn't show up in the takeover.
      4. YEA, ADAM!!!!

            I'm not exactly a fan of nxt but I am a fun of raw and smackdown so I had mixed opinions about it and I am a really casual viewer I watch every show

                      Rey Mysterio was able to show up on SmackDown because he's on the injury list and/or he was "licenced" to appear alongside Velasquez

                        Maybe vince held them back in Dubai so triple h could show why he should inherit wwe and book the shows once vince retires

                              cool but same old same old only now its nxt attacking and not just raw and smackdown

                                I thought it sucked since the NXT talent was all but squashing the Smackdown folks most of the time. There were only two good matches: Bayley before that BS where the scary chick beat everyone down and the Daniel Bryan main event.

                           Brock is going to be on Raw as the champion and it solves the issue of having both titles on one show.

                                            Smackdown is a far better show that RAW and a better roster lineup as well.

                                                As you can see. Vince had no control over this episode and it was decent. Vince needs to retire or die. Probably only with the latter will he relinquish piwer

                                                  With Survivor Series coming up, I’m thinking we saw an early version of an invasion angle that was already planned, but damn they pulled it off and made this little boy happy.

                                                    The ending of this video makes sense now. I was wondering what the interference throughout the video was.

                                                      Brock quitting was obviously just a flimsy excuse to give Raw a world title as both title were on Smackdown.

                                                            Give me the ultimate brand split
                                                            Create a Raw Title and elevate the Universal Champion above all three brands.
                                                            Defend Raw, Smackdown, and NXT titles on the weekly show and at the PPV
                                                            Every PPV one of these champions challenges the universal champion.
                                                            Every quarterly PPV there can be a 4 man elimination style match or a gimmick BS match with all four champions

                                                            Ugh.... you could do a Russo level match where each title is on a pole TNA feast or fired style with all champions and the top four contenders and I'll go vomit in the corner because I hate myself for thinking of it.

                                                              I agree but don't defend your title every week, build your ppv's. Make the title feel important maybe defend it every two weeks. But no don't do a Russo... It's okay we won't judge you lmao
