So I wonder did they announce Shelton before he officially signed and did his medicals or was this discovered after he signed?

That's what I want to know. They are rush signing people so I'd believe anything.

If they announced Shelton before everything was set then that's a weird deal considering they are intent on keeping signings quiet and telling people to deny everything.

Speaking of which, I get WWE wanting people to keep quiet while they are still going though the signing process, but it gets really old when people sign and they still want them to do that for awhile longer. It turns into this long drawn out game of has this person signed or not. I think they kill the enthusiasm of anybody who may get excited about these potential signings. By the time they make everything official people don't care as much anymore about this person going there. It becomes boring to them.

I don't recall them taking as much time to announce the signings with Finn, KO, and Hideo. Granted those are three huge signings but they also helped hype it up before any of the three debuted and before they even showed up at the PC right? You would think they might wanna do the same with at least some of the new signings for this fall.

So basically Freddie Prince Jr. came up with the Bray Wyatt vs Undertaker storyline 7 years before it happend, only he wanted to do it with someone who is even worse than Bray.

So, after last night, anyone else think Cesaro and/or Zayn might be on the show tonight? Because otherwise, a lot of weirdness in last night's show especially with the ending and no Zayn on the show.

Yeah that whole Bryan/Cesaro tease was juicy, but I'm not confident that it means anything. I think we may just be seeing a four-way for the US title with Rusev/Reigns/Cesaro/Sheamus.

Definitely strange to have Zayn win that feud and give him nothing afterwards. But who can say? For sure I'd like to see a talent trading angle, but I don't have enough reason to believe it'll happen.

Should be an interesting show, though. I've enjoyed the Smackdown builds, although it's on them to figure out how to manage the tag and women's division in the short-term. Both have slumped out of the gate. I really enjoyed last week's show, so hopefully they keep it up.

Not sure where they are going with Becky and Eva Marie, but I've really enjoyed this feud so far. I'd keep it up until Summerslam and then have Becky squash her in less than a minute.

That's brilliant booking considering its in NYC. Maybe make it as quick as Honky vs. Warrior.
