Still can't believe they had Michael Cole introduce him Laughing

Such a bad way of going about it, but then again they are clueless with these things these days.

what are your thoughts on recent WWE events? Opinion on Ambrose and KO's title reigns?

Is Jericho having the best run any other wrestler has had in years?

KO's title reign sucks lol.

Not his fault though as he's being booked like Rollins was.

People like MT will blame him though Proud

it's actually crazy how crap raw is when you look at the roster compared to smackdown, surely that won't last as raw is the flagship show? they will bring some SD lads back over IMO by xmas with some sort of PPV stipulation if RAW win a match

It's not perfect but theirs consistent storylines, writing is miles better than Raw and they are doing a great job of making you give a shit.

The Usos are interesting! Talking Smack helps immensely too.

Ellsworth is basically being used as a comedy guy.

One week AJ couldn't find a partner so Bryan made him his partner against Cena and Ambrose but Miz hit him on the ramp during his entrance lmao.

2nd they put him against AJ for a joke and made Ambrose special guest ref and Ambrose made AJ lose lol.

Then he faced AJ for the title and won via DQ because Ambrose made AJ go mental.

Now it's Ambrose vs AJ next week and if Ambrose wins he gets a title shot.

He's probably overstayed his welcome at this point though, much more and it's too much imo as he's basically a jobber lol.

Nah its not that.

The storylines are non existent and the writing is beyond crap, not to mention they don't use most of the roster.

Even if it was a 2 hour show it would still be shite, that excuse doesn't even work anymore.

When you have the Usos being a more interesting and fresh act than Enzo and Cass or the New Day there's clearly a problem.

The show is a whole load of nothing and I like a lot of the talent on that roster before the split I just don't care anymore due to bad writing and non existent storytelling.

The writing and storytelling on SmackDown shits all over Raw that has nothing to do with the 3 hours.

SD is better because it's 2 hours. The show flows better and there isn't as much filler. It also helps that it has a strong main event with the likes of Cena, AJ, Ambrose, Orton, and Bray.

It helps but it's really not the reason at all.

RAW's storylines are just not as good, Miz and Ziggler was better than anything Raw was doing, as was Bray-Orton, AJ-Ambrose or the 3 way AJ-Cena-Ambrose that's without even mentioning the Miz and Bryan storyline as well as the Heath Slater storyline among others.

They treat their women's and tag team divisions better too, they have intertwining storylines going throughout the division instead of just one storyline and leaving everyone else off TV.

RAW's storylines are non existent, that has zero to do with how long the show is. No one cares about any of it, it's basically all rematches and squash matches.

It's a show that cares about moments and not storylines, I can name those moments on one hand (Sasha winning the title, Finn Balor being no 1 contender and HHH screwing Seth)  but not a single good storyline.

I liked Rollins, Owens, Rusev, Sasha, New Day etc before the split and now I don't give a shit and it's little wonder why. Even if it was a 2 hour show it would still be utter dog shit and everyone thinking otherwise is massively deluding themselves.

Triple Main Event rofl

WWE in 2016, where even the match cards get 50/50 booking.

It's all pretty meh atm. Nothing must watch other than Goldberg's return. Ambrose should have held the title longer though imo.

Owens was nowhere near ready to win the title. Happened out of the blue. Then again with the lack of talent / crappy booking nowadays literally anyone can be world champion at any moment. Jericho's always been goat, needs a run as World champ.

Owens is ready tbh although I agree that it came out of the blue, it's just that he's treated like a joke and Reigns is pushed harder and he's us champ lol.

Hell Owens himself was booked stronger before he became champion. His segments are entertaining but it's hard to take him seriously when the company clearly doesn't lol.

As for Ambrose we all agree he should have held the title longer, but once they booked AJ to go over Cena twice in a row it was an impossibility for Ambrose to keep the title.

I said at the time that I don't believe they wanted to have Ambrose lose the title but they booked themselves in a corner after booking AJ so strong.

They probably did about as well as they could have done with having AJ cheat to win, in any case the booking with Ambrose has been really good as the only one to beat him clean this year has been Lesnar lol.

I have zero complaints there, besides his mic and overall character work continues to excell without the belt so I'm happy with how he's progressed since the split.

I still want him to turn as I believe his ring work and character work lends better as a heel than as a face but his booking is better than most of the farces you see.

To me ready means 'x guy is amazing / over and the title desperately needs to be around his waist'. Owens was mainly floating around the midcard and didn't really do anything goat worthy at any point. The win came out of nowhere imo.

Plus with the brand split I can't take the world champions seriously. They were already lacking in star power before the brand split, now you have 2 world champions on 2 weaker rosters. Any world title win automatically loses credibility. A world title win would mean so much more with one roster in 2016.

Ruthless Aggression era had 2 legit rosters with all the WCW/WWF stars, which is why it worked.

Fair enough on the Owens stuff.

Also the world title wins mean about as much as the guys in the match allows it to be imo.

AJ, Ambrose and Cena felt like a big deal in the build because of the story being told and how the segments being booked.

Meanwhile Rollins and Owens feels utterly meaningless, it is being shoved down our throats "women's revolution herp derp" but Sasha and Charlotte feels more meaningful than that does.

PWInsider.com is reporting that there are a lot of people backstage in WWE right now pushing for James Ellsworth to be signed to a full-time WWE contract. They also say that you shouldn’t be surprised if Ellsworth pops back up on WWE TV as early as this Tuesday night’s Smackdown.

They are also reporting that the strong sales of Ellsworth’s t-shirt turned a lot of heads inside of WWE. Noting that if you are a fan who purchased Ellsworth’s shirt you may have helped him receive a full-time WWE contract.
