Good. Now, I'll have a quality wrestling show to watch live on Tuesday nights to cleanse my palette from the previous night's Raw. I wish the move went into effect tonight. That Raw last night was atrocious. Break up the Hurt Business... Stupid, stupid, stupid.
I read a recap and the entire show sounded pretty bad to me.Good. Now, I'll have a quality wrestling show to watch live on Tuesday nights to cleanse my palette from the previous night's Raw.

Part of me thought, maybe it's a swerve. Maybe, they are faking a break-up to later get the drop on Drew. Then, I reminded myself this is Raw.I read a recap and the entire show sounded pretty bad to me.
But I got to the Hurt Business part and was like, "wait, they break up like a week after the ALL held championships?". Even if they weren't a cool stable (they were) who had tons of potential (they did), logically (in kayfabe), why in the world would they break up now?
I'll be honest, that Hurt Business entrance, with all of them in their suits, and all of them carrying gold, was pretty freaking awesome. Raw didn't get even close to the amount of milage out of that as they should have.
I feel like an all-champions Hurt Business would have moved a lot of t-shirts and stuff too, especially with MVP being able to talk them all up on the mic.
But it was like the WWE couldn't wait to make them drop the tag belts and split them up.
I guess we probably say a television time goodbye to Cedric Alexander and Shelton now?
Touche'. Unfortunately, Cena is filming something in Canada and said that he won't even be able to make Wrestlemania.We keep waiting for Cena to come back...
I know there is the whole pandemic thing, but man...it wasn't too, too long ago when 3 million viewers seemed like a rock solid base for Monday nights.At this point, the combined forces of Cena, The Rock, CM Punk and Stone Cold Steve Austin couldn't save this show.
Didn't they announce a "Blood and Guts" thing between the Inner Circle and The Elite right before covid shut everything down?Only way to settle Inner Circle and Pinnacle is War Games, guess Cody needs to figure out a new name or some new structure to use
i really don’t remember but if that’s their answer to War Games then I’m all for itDidn't they announce a "Blood and Guts" thing between the Inner Circle and The Elite right before covid shut everything down?
That eventually developed into Stadium Stampede, but they could bring Blood and Guts back now.
AEW is doing a good job of getting plenty of people on screen via groups/factions. Of course, you have the Inner Circle vs. Pinnacle, which has a lot of promise. And now you have the Nightmare Family vs. QT's newly formed group. I'll admit that I had next to zero cares to give about QT Marshall headed into that exhibition match, but they did something eventful with it. I suppose if one wanted to nitpick a bit, you could point out how Pinnacle and QT's group both sprung up in swerve-like fashion within such a close time frame of one another. Then you have The Dark Order, Team Taz, and other groupings on the show.Two things:
Seeing Inner Circle manhandle the Pinnacle was pretty damn funny.
That video package for Cole vs O'Reilly next week was awesome. Happy these shows are going to be on different nights in the future.
