    Maybe Roman wasn't clear to wrestle and then he was. Or maybe they saw how this tag feud was going and thought they would extend it.



  • Registered Users Posts: 7,098 ✭✭✭ hynesie08


    Or they're content creators who don't give a **** about storylines or logic as long as they can fill airtime, who've realised that the fans don't matter because they make money with or without them.

    I think they don't want to break up RKBro yet

    What happened to Shinsuke Nakamura challenging Roman, was it just dropped?

    No matter what they do, Ronda and Charlotte is a boring feud

    Who was fed to Raquel on her SD in ring debut?



  • Registered Users Posts: 26,002 ✭✭✭✭ CastorTroy


    Some new girl. They seemed very focussed on Raquel's appearance and being happy.



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,275 ✭✭✭ ThePott


    I don't think they need to break up RKOBro at all. I just don't get why it's s six man tag for no real reason. You're right, they Shinsuke tease is annoying, I'm sure they did exactly this with him last year too.

    I was going to say the same, Raquel has gone through the Main Roster machine in that she now has to always be smiling and we need to be reminded that she is attractive. Can't see this lasting long.

    At the Seattle Kraken game last night it was fan appreciation night and they were giving out prizes to different sections. Brock Lesnars music hit and an announcement came up that a section was all getting two tickets to Smackdown in September. My section won Slipknot tickets so swapped with another fan in that section since I already have the Slipknot one. Was a great night overall!

    Nice

    Say its another world over there in terms of Arena events



  • Registered Users Posts: 74,570 ✭✭✭✭ JP Liz V1


    Shinsuke Nakamura still wants Reigns



  • Registered Users Posts: 26,002 ✭✭✭✭ CastorTroy


    Still no idea what they're doing with Lacey, but seems she's going to be a heel, even after her life story?

    Nice to see them actually remember that they set up Nakamura. Althought then Sami beat him, by count out but still.

    Lacey Evans is the most baffling thing I've ever seen. Like 5 weeks of sympathy promos, this week's one was especially bad. Then they have to ask the audience to cheer her. If they're trying to run heel with her, having her interact with the crowd is weird too, dreadful.

    Backlash looks like a groaner of a show to me tbh.



  • Registered Users Posts: 26,002 ✭✭✭✭ CastorTroy


    The promos made it seem like they were going to bring her back as face especially with the whole US Marine thing. But introducing her saying the line about giving the respect she deserves doesn't say that.

    Maybe she's going to be a cocky heel acting like a face which is why she's interacting with the crowd.

    Will she go straight for Charlotte or someone else?



  • Registered Users Posts: 22,426 ✭✭✭✭ J. Marston


    The sooner she goes back to calling people classless nasties as the Sassy Southern Belle, the better.



  • Registered Users Posts: 74,570 ✭✭✭✭ JP Liz V1


    I'm kinda getting into Bloodline feuding with DrewKBro



  • Registered Users Posts: 26,002 ✭✭✭✭ CastorTroy


    Didn't they call it RKMcBro?



  • Registered Users Posts: 7,098 ✭✭✭ hynesie08


    So Pete Dunne is hornswoggle now?



  • Registered Users Posts: 74,570 ✭✭✭✭ JP Liz V1


    Sami part of Bloodline



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,275 ✭✭✭ ThePott


    Solid enough Smackdown.

    The Raquel/Ronda match was surprisingly solid and actually did a good job of establishing Raquel and protecting her in the finish, Ronda looked better too.

    The Butch/Kofi match was good too, the Butch stuff against all odds is working and seems to be getting over too.

    Sami as part of the Bloodline is fun too. Championship Unification match I'm guessing will end in a DQ for a rematch at HIAC. Riddle hitting the knee was slick too.



  • Registered Users Posts: 74,570 ✭✭✭✭ JP Liz V1


    Raquel really took it to Ronda, part of me thought Rebecca would answer the challenge

    Orton mentioning Cena who is returning for SS, RKBro with Cena against Bloodline or is Theory vs. Cena set?

    Reigns in a feud against Orton would be good



  • Registered Users Posts: 74,570 ✭✭✭✭ JP Liz V1


    Is RKBro losing their titles tonight?

    Did LA Knight need a name change, was this what was in mind for Adam Cole



  • Registered Users Posts: 4,671 ✭✭✭ The White Wolf


    Was just coming here to say lol at the name change yet again for Knight.



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,275 ✭✭✭ ThePott


    The LA Knight name change seems pointless and it's definitely less cool sounding.

    I'd bet we never get that tag tournament, wouldn't even surprise me if that was it for the titles.

    Liked Nakamura's match, good bit of storytelling continuity. Also love the idea of Ricochet/Gunther for the IC, Gunther would make a great IC champ.

    Bloodline making kids cry, love it!



  • Registered Users Posts: 22,426 ✭✭✭✭ J. Marston


    Idiotic. LA Knight was such a cool name. Perfect wrestling name.



  • Registered Users Posts: 32,107 ✭✭✭✭ PTH2009


    Max Dupri sounds very 'best of luck in your future endeavours'



  • Registered Users Posts: 26,002 ✭✭✭✭ CastorTroy


    Seeing Mia Yim on Impact made me wonder whatever happened with that new role for Mace from Retribution. And looks like it's happening now. I guess LA Knight is more of a wrestler name than a manager.

    Surprised they went through with the unification. Said about being the first unified tag champs in history. Didn't they have separate titles during the previous brand split?

    Orton vs. Reigns is the current plan for Summerslam



  • Registered Users Posts: 32,107 ✭✭✭✭ PTH2009


    Yep apparently Riddle is the MITB match a few weeks prior

    Riddle to cost Randy or Randy to destroy Riddle the post summerslam Raw

    If only they could give every wrestler an ounce of Sami's humour. He is the most naturally funny guy in wrestling.
