    Smackdown was far and away the better show this week. Dolph's promos are usually a miss, but this one was the best of his I've seen since coming back to wrestling.
    Meanwhile Raw can't book a show that can consistently feature Sami Zayn, Neville, or anyone else from the midcard because they need to fit 3 squash matches and Steph needs tv time to belittle people.

    Gallows & Anderson vs Kofi & Big E was my fave match of the week on WWE TV (haven't watched Lince Dorado v Hideo Itami yet (expect him on RAW in the CW division) Can't ever remember seeing Kofi bleed and he was a bloody mess after that match. Gallows & Anderson keep coming closer and closer too the title. I really like how they are booking this program. They get more and more violent and vicious with each shot and I think they end New Days run at the next PPV. The Club seems to be catching more and more interest and heat from crowds being involved in all the tag team main events. Thankfully scrapping the ridiculous promo hi jinks. They just need to beat people up

    Both shows are booked well, I feel AJ probably is the best outside of SHINSUKE (Zayn at Takeover Dallas and Balor in his farewell NXT match were the only two capable of pushing him to his best). Alpha is probably my fave tag team. Becky is the best in ring competition not in NXT. Mauro & JBL are the two best commentators in the company.

    BUT the overall talent on RAW is far greater and stuff like TJ Perkins v Tony Nese and C Alexander & R Swann v Lince Dorado and Drew Gulak only increase that. You don't need to have huge storylines for them. The CW division is about pure friendly (outside of Kendrick, the loose cannon) competition. I know these guys are probably super nervous wrestling in front of huge crowds but there's still 5-10 minute stretches of the same kind of brilliance they showed they are capable of in the CWC. They arent wrestling in huge wrestling cities like NYC, Philly, Chicago, etc) but they are getting good chunks of crowds being loud. WCW's division never had big storylines but that division grew and grew and was getting 25-30 minutes in the first match on every Nitro, when the NWO was red hot and WCW was blowing WWF out of the water for over a year. The talent is there the familiarity with the WWE Universe is not.

    Already mentioned the Club/New Day fued.

    Like the Owens & Authority v Rollins fued. Can see a Shield reunion (if just Rollins & Reigns). I think this is the big angle culminating at WM.

    Charlotte, Sasha & Bayley being involved in the women's title picture will always be a great match. Don't really need to add more of a storyline than what's been layed out over the last 3+ years.

    Like the Cesaro/Sheamus thing. I think they resume their fued at some point.

    Zayn and Neville deserve more but they've had huge moments early on and they will have plenty more.

    I love seeing Foley on TV each and every time.

    so there are rumors Royal Rumble will be in SA instead of LA, if that's the case I'm going!

    checked ATT Center and Staples Center's schedule, both got nothing scheduled for 1/22/2017

    suppose to be announced on Monday

    Damn, that Dusty Classic is going to be awesome. LOL at Ibushi still flirting with NXT. I thought this dude didn't sign? Such a weird dude.

    I guess they'll again make him go to semis or finals and then end up losing to whomever signed. It has more to do with Itami ATM.

    Maaaate...

    Baszler, who is friends with Rousey, is there. Not Ronda herself.

    Besides, ya really think Ronda would need a 'tryout'?

    Damn I'm getting my hopes up. We as a crowd must have really pleased Vince at the last Raw.

    Most Definately. Most of the shows in the midwest sucked balls. Especially Cincinnati, what a horrible crowd that is.

    It'll be interesting if it's going to be at Alamodome again.

    I'm so there, I hope they have a NXT show also
