So, in hindsight, when was the moment of the decline this year? Was it the Undertaker beating Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam, because the Raw the night after was the big drop?

Yikes. She excelled at the role she was given as on-screen talent because she's particularly charismatic regardless of gender. And even if she's not "acting how her employers want her to" you don't deal with that by having the biggest movie star on the planet berate her on live television while she can say nothing to defend herself.

Saw a report tonight that Tyler Breeze was "You can't wrestle" chants. That's just about it for Breeze in general. I feel real sorry for him.

I have a feeling that there will be a house cleaning soon if the figures for Nakamura and Style's contracts are as substantial as they've been made out to be.

I think it makes perfect sense based on what happened in the Rumble and the person in question needing a showcase match. Don't really see it as an indictment like some online.

Planet wrote:Lana gets heat for revealing she's engaged to Rusev but there's tons of content on the WWE Network that barely even pretends that wrestling isn't scripted. Dumbass draconian BS. And to note that Rusev is still in good graces makesit even clearer that she's easily targeted for being a woman.
Please stop running with this narrative. The women's locker room dislikes her too. At one stage the make up ladies were refusing to do her make up - check out her return to TV after the TMZ thing.

She's not the martyr you are claiming. Only tonight she was back on Rusev's social media posting stupid shit:

um, Rovert, I don't see people running around with some exaggerated martyr narrative. People are calling out this segment for being total fucking garbage, which it was.

I thought the same about the segment. Still Lana keeps digging the hole. She instadeleted this a few minutes ago:

They aren't targeting her because she a woman they are targeting her as she has a "legacy" of doing things that would get her heat.

Sexism, lmao, so what? It's fucking pro-wrestling, all the PC police officers seriously need to calm down, have a drink and go out on fresh air every now and then.

You're totally right.

It's also stupid that black guys don't all have great headbutts anymore. Because their skulls are thicker, you know?

Should probably try having a muslim terrorist again.....make Sheamus an alcoholic fireman......rename Del Rio's finisher the fiery jalapeno taco loco....Nakamura should wear fake buck teeth and be named Kamikaze......Darren Young should bleach his hair, wear feather boas and get REALLY gay about everything.....Styles should be a homophobic religious dude.

I don't expect my wrestling to be high brow, but could we maybe expect them to be a step above a Republican presidential debate?

Tbf, I'd take it over where we've been (more or less) since 2008:
