    People like Braun pushing giant buildings over and doing dumb comedy.

    I dunno if they'll like him as much when he's perceived as Vince's boy and a front office darling.

    There's always the risk of that but I'd say he's already made it out of the Vince's boy part of his career. I think the Sami feud put him at a deficit that he's overcome by having these crazy hard hitting sprints.

    He's genuinely built like a monster but he's allowed to be athletic so there's more novelty to his size, kind of like phenom Taker doing tope's to the outside except Braun is doing reversal choreography from No Mercy. There's also less stupid catch phrasing(one vs all) and pandering ass moves(superman punch). Letting him throw chokeslams seems small but it really lets the juxtaposition of him being bigger than everyone set in. I've seen him 3 times live and the entire act gets people lit, he's gotten one of the biggest if not the biggest pop. When he came out fresh to massacre battle worn Roman the entire Garden came unglued. You'd have thought he was DBry or some shit.

    Braun's been getting some stupid booking lately too. Saving Roman confused everyone and then attacking KO and Zayn at Backlash after the match ended had everyone going WTF.

    He needs to stay a loner and drop this forced teaming with Lashley.

    You guys keeping track of the TV rights deal? I was just doing some reading because I wasn't sure if Fox was trying to split the UFC rights with Disney/ESPN and it seems like it's solely ESPN. This is probably bad news for us but good news for the company because now they have the spectre of a competitive bidding war between Fox and NBCUniversal. The majority of their actual profit is from the TV deal and if Fox doesn't move into the bidding war they're going to basically be the Big East network.

    To come full circle this is what I meant by Vince being a great business man and being shitty at making stars. ESPN and UFC are still playing catchup with the VOD service models but at the same time you can use the Network as a metric to broadcast companies to say hey we have this many loyal marks baked into viewership on cable but if we move to a network the delta from exposure will increase and we might get bump of 1 million viewers. It's probably desirable to Fox because WWE pays its own overhead and they would only be responsible for broadcasting the shows.

    So the possibility of Raw being on Fox and SD Live being on FS1 is very possible. I wonder if they'd take less money from Fox for that exposure to get off of the USA channel.

    I just want RAW and SD tapings to be immediately uploaded to the network after airing. Not wait 2 weeks for that shit.

    I'd legit have the Network all year if they did as opposed to just getting it for RR-Mania and Summerslam-Survivor Series periods.

    I looked into why they do this and it's per the TV rights deal and by extension Hulu. Though I never realized it was a 2 week lapse because it always felt longer.

    Out of curiosity how often do they give you free months to come back? I always get salty when I see them giving new people the free month especially for Mania.

    I think only once and that was a promotion where they were offering everyone a free month or something like that. Otherwise I never get any free months pleas. Just begging to return for "must see PPVs" like fucking Backlash.

    So Enzo would have a job with WWE still if his dumbass just told them about the investigation. Probably for the best he got fired though.

    Reading that statement, and assuming it's true, it doesn't seem like he even knew he was being investigated until the whole thing blew up online

    I lowkey want WWE on Fox I wonder how different it will be.

    People claim WWE would be even more PG since its on Fox but that argument doesn't make any sense because of UFC.

    RAW would under a microscope on FOX just like when Smackdown was on UPN back in the day.

    The FCC is even more anal when it comes to shows on network TV.

    Best part of Raw:



    And believe it or not. This act would actually get over. Until WWE decides to punish them that is.

    Ironic thing is that'd be the same exact thing WWE did with Breezango. Hot act popular with the fans? Tease pushing them for a bit but never committing (granted Usos were red hot at the time so them not winning the belts is understandable) until fan interest wanes a bit but instead of giving them an intermittent feud in the mean time to reignite interest just do fuck all with them and have them lose constantly until they lose all momentum and hype.
