Think it was recorded before SmackDown got taped, they usually are.

What happened to that wellness hammer that was supposed to drop?

Would be completely fine with a Big Cass run.

Doesn't mean it has to be forever. But if he has Enzo with him and he's carried through feuds with Owens, Jericho, and Rollins (if he doesn't cripple him), it might not be the worst idea.

Valid question that has been asked twice in this thread with nobody who hinted at it even attempting to respond.

We need the guy who investigates Dave Meltzer's ethics on a daily basis to start holding the DM scoops people to the same standards instead of just guesting on their podcasts.

I personally could give two shits about accountability in reporting of rumors. I love the BS carny aspects of wrestling, even in 2016. Reckless speculation and half the shit not being true is part of the fun.

Rob freely ignoring that Meltzer gave credence that more failures maybe coming. As did every other full time journalist pretty much.

There was a week lag on Paige failing and it being announced. Failures may still happen.

It's kinda depressing that Neville, Cesaro, and Rollins are all in basically the exact positions they were before they got injured. Not like any of them are being buried, but they missed the boat on Rollins's face run and Cesaro and Neville both have the potential to do so much more.

Nothing is 100% in wrestling until:

- rovert hints at it vaguely to cover all basis no matter how the story turns out
- supersonic writes an article about the rumor he decoded from cryptic tweets
- Dave or Mike Johnson report it
- Zellner makes sure everyone knows he's on the inside by saying something like "oh so that's out there now" on twitter
- the guy who is obsessed with Dave records a 3 hour podcast on how unprofessional Dave was by reporting the news a week after he found out

Tomorrow I'll break down the cycle of when a new non-wrestler female appears on RAW and how quickly she gets stalked online.

Ehh, I could have sworn I saw rovert say "now all we need is a backstage fight between two top guys" and an hour later Meltzer's report came out. Also leaked ryback walking out if I recall. Fray is the vague "I knew this a week ago" guy, not rovert

Rob being a blatant attention whore ITT, too obviously fishing for dust-ups.

Whoever was running the VOW account tonight is a miserable fuck, entire internet explodes with joy...and then just that negativity.

Anyways, that match was fucking awesome. Cass looked great and got elevated, and Owens is the champ. I'll wait to complain about booking later, their champ just tore his shoulder and is out 6 months. For booking on the fly, I thought it was pretty damn great. NO ONE deserves it more than Kevin.
