WWE is turning very meta.

I think the rumors of a potential sale have to be true.

Really trying to thin out any future contracts / liabilities.

Think you see them get down to just the core contracts they need to run their programs. And then they potentially get sold.

I think there's more play on the network, there's been a complete lack of new content for months.



I think this is a Nick Kahn edict, he wants younger and bigger, and better younger people to invest in. Also with the WWE roster being pretty bloated they probably want to streamline things.



But yeah this kind of balance sheet adjustment is interesting, they're also bouncing out executives left right and center.

The funny thing is if Nick Khan wants to take the company down that route - fine. They can change the company as they see fit. But he has to know that there is a massive audience that eats up wrestling product, and Tony Khan is experiencing that windfall. Never have I seen such a windfall of talent that arrives at their doorstep since WCW was acquired 20 years ago.

I just don't see Triple H long for WWE at this rate, unless he's baked in with investments and internal power. But he seems to be losing the latter.

Honestly I think with the way the industry is now, the "forbidden door" access growing the product, and the revival of fun wrestling again (thanks AEW, NJPW and Impact!), there's probably room for a "breakaway" promotion from WWE that would be well-timed, especially with the demise of ROH.

If Vince was smart he'd "fire" HHH and get him to build up his own promotion on the West Coast and then at some point do a for real invasion after a few years. Have them actively compete, steal contracts, build up generations of stars that HHH likes.



Ah hell it would only work with a phony divorce between Steph and HHH.

My mind immediately went to the date rape angle they did when they got married on TV. Christ.

Great and now I'm flashing back to Vince Leering at his daughters cleavage during the wedding angle to Test


Get out of my head!

What I don't understand is why is Samoa Joe pouring one out for Cadia. Cadia stands, so it makes no sense.

Another great ppv

Perfect ending to the main event, the nod from matt Jackson sets up so much with the elite

MJF and Darby was probably 2nd best match of the night

Inner circle/ATT and super kliq/JE were probably too similar, I liked latter more, Santana and ortiz and sammy need to start getting their own matches on these cards. Luchasauras was the star of that match, he doesnt get enough credit for how well he can move.

Britt needs a change of some kind, shes close to becoming a bit stale, Tay looked great.

Weird finish to Miro and Bryan, great match though

Cody needs to turn heel, he was the only one in that match who didnt get cheered, probably worst match of the night, just never got going and crowd was dead

Punk and Kingston definitely got crowd going again, I thought eddie should have won, punks best match in AEW by far

Okada is showing up Wednesday right? I get Ishii is teaming with OC the match, but okada has been teased so much and aew dont usually do that without delivering. Maybe it's not this week but it has to be coming before he goes back to Japan for WK

Poor Aliyah, she was so amped from her win on smackdown that it looks like she pukes on herself.



Just opeens the way for a new Gimmick from Vince "Its ALIYAH . . . . SHE"S GONNA PUKE!"

Looks like the WWE is skipping Calgary again.

They're going to Winnipeg in Jan for Smackdown and then Raw will be in Edmonton

Was hoping for at least a house show so I can take my kids.

No doubt it's because of their elaborate set and the 'Dome not being able to handle the setup.

I decided to skip out on the Winnipeg show. There's really not anyone who I haven't already seen live that I want to see and I'm not quite comfortable yet being in large crowds.

And Saskatoon and Regina in between the two TV events.

Oh man. Adding insult to injury

Hopefully they add a Calgary show on the Tuesday after Raw.

Lots of releases by WWE tonight as they continue to pare down their roster.

I guess not a lot of surprise. I feel bad for Nox who had come all the way back from a couple of brutal knee injuries. I hope she goes to AEW.

I'm surprised Shane Thorne lasted as long as he did. It was all downhill after they broke up TM61. That match they had in the finals of the Dusty Classic against AOP was fantastic, and probably the highlight of his NXT career.

Am I the only one that watched the video of Rollins getting attacked, and wanted to know more about the camera setup the cameraman was using?

That looks intense.

Is it there's one screen for him to see what he's shooting, and one screen to see what's behind him?

I also love how the cameraman is 100% unphased and just keeps filming, going in for a close up like "do, do, do-do"
