Yeah. Wonder at what point and to who Rousey will drop the belt to unless the plan is for Becky to get it back...Definitely a good match. May have been the the best of the night. I think they are trying to build toward Becky vs Ronda at Mania, which I'm good with because it means they see the value in Lynch.
Ummmmm, yeah. Nevermind. SMH........Pretty decent PPV last night. I especially like DB/AJ and the main event.
I thought Ambrose/Rollins was very slow and frankly boring. that should have been a TLC match for the belt.
The ladies tore it down. I don't understand how charlotte got up after that leg drop from Becky on the table. Sick spot. I liked Asuka winning, but I hope this doesn't mean they are gonna move becky to RAW to feud with Ronda. But I think that is what Vince is going to do tonight.
I think he is going to announce a new RAW GM and move some people around.
I am going to guess: Becky, Charlotte, AJ, and possibly a tag team to RAW. Sasha, Bayley, Balor, and a tag team to SDL. Just my guessess. They need to do something though, the rosters have gotten a bit stale.
Yeah. Vince is completely out of touch.Ummmmm, yeah. Nevermind. SMH........
Just 30 minutes of McMahons saying they are going to save Raw from..........the McMahons????? Ugh...
yeah I agree, thanks for fixing something that wasn't broken Vince!! SDL didn't need more McMahons. Hey Paige great job, now go sit in craft services and tweet....SMH.Yeah. Vince is completely out of touch.
Also, in addition to Lars Sullivan, they are calling up Lacey Evans, Nikki Cross, EC3 and Heavy Machinery.
Can't wait to see all that talent get squandered.
Well I would say that the Naomi vs. Asuka was good but not great, it was a little clunky, and the main event of Ali/Styles vs. Almas/Bryan was really good but it doesn't really mean anything. But good match. Just too much Vince and they have completely killed all of the momentum that Miz had by having him chase around Shane.So in other words, I didn't miss anything last night?
Well, I wouldn't say the Main Event doesn't mean anything. Ali pinned the champ clean. Usually, that leads to a title shot. However, his botch on Bryan might cool things down for Ali.Well I would say that the Naomi vs. Asuka was good but not great, it was a little clunky, and the main event of Ali/Styles vs. Almas/Bryan was really good but it doesn't really mean anything.

But yeah, you aint' missed anything.....
That right there is the problem. They are writing the show to suite Vince's tastes and wants. That is the main problem. You shouldn't be writing an episodic show to entertain one 73 year old out of touch billionaire. How many 70 year olds you know that watch wrestling?? yeah.....“The Vince factor is a huge part of writing RAW and SmackDown. Even if you took Vince out of the equation, it’s an extremely difficult task to come up with new ideas, concepts and new matches for 3 hours each week. But yeah, it’s difficult writing for Vince. The prevailing goal is ‘Is Vince going to like this?’ So, [you’re writing things going] ‘Will Vince gonna yell about this?’
It’s hard to know what he wants because things will change, and he’ll want changes. He’s certainly a unique character and some people like to blame Vince for all the bad stuff, I don’t know if that’s true or not. Certainly, I’ll give the devil his due: if you blame him for the bad stuff then you have to blame him for the good stuff.“
Probably not until he's 6 feet under.https://www.cagesideseats.com/wwe/2018/12/20/18149746/jimmy-jacobs-explains-wwe-creative-process
So I came across this article on Cagesideseats and wanted to share. Jimmy Jacobs explains the wwe creative/writing process and it sounds so dang convoluted and confusing.
The main point I got from it was that pretty much everything goes through Vince and has to get his approval.
This quote was particularly striking:

It is so disengenious when they come out there and say they are going to listen to the fans and give us what we want when we all know the only person that matter is VKM. It is also highly insulting as well. How dumb do they really think their viewers are????
I give Vince all the credit in the world for making pro wrestling the cultural mainstay it is today and for creating wrestlemania and his many other achievements. But it is time to move on from the 'VKM' era. If this company wants to survive post-VKM they better start making shows to please their audience and main viewers and not the old man in charge. Apple moved on from Steve Jobs. Disney moved on without Walt Disney. When will WWE move on with out VKM making all the decisions????
