Peak Pete Dunne on this week's show, making it look like he was making the big heroic save to get Cole's boys off Wolfgang... only to just grab his belt and get out again. PERFECT.

Also, what's up with the name THE UNDISPUTED ERA? Just bloody buzz words they threw together to make a stable name.

Why not just call them THE UNDISPUTED. It doesn't make much sense but where does the Era come in? Does anyone even know what that means? Perplexing choice.

The first thing that comes to mind when I hear The Undisputed Era is when Jericho/HHH/Hogan/Taker/Rock had the title in 2002.

I don't know if there's been a MAJOR IP grab in recent years but it seems harder and harder to get stuff past Legal these days.

Cole, O'Reilly and Fish did submit various lists of names/themes of names. And this is what the office gave them.

I am normally the name doesn't really matter guy. But Undisputed Era is an albatross and pretty much nonsensical.

it's just clunky linguistically... a real head-scratcher.

It can all be saved if they have a badass theme, which I assume will debut tonight at the tapings.

After hearing CFO$ on Sam Roberts wrestling podcast today, they've made it clear that they're well aware of who the top debuting people are and how important the music is.

Expected more stories like this in Wrestling given how many wrestlers of every age live in Florida but Lacey Evans‏ home was destroyed in the hurricane.

Shayna has to be getting added to the four way at Takeover, right?

Ember/Peyton/Kairi/? so far

Really good close to the show again, between the tag match and the post match. Black and Velveteen Dream being put in a feud too. That crowd pop when Dream slid out of the ring the way he did was... something.

Don't think it would be Shayna, would be weird for Kairi to get the big prize of a title match, and Shayna then gets it too. Besides, she still has indie titles to drop.

Based on her appearance in a promo this week, think the final qualifier is Dakota Kai vs. Bianca Belair vs. Billie Kay.

It might just be a product of the out of nowhere crowd pop, but I'm digging the vibe of Black vs Dream. Kind of excited for some weird ass promo shit and the eventual match.

Dream got much better for me when I realized he comes off/looks like a JoJo's Bizarre Adventure character, hell his name is basically a Stand name.

Dream is definitely channeling early Goldust with his mannerisms, and it's working GREAT!

I hope Bel Air gets the spot over Dakota Kai. Also enjoy the Black/Dream feud.

Takeover's need more home grown people on the cards. Really liking the balance now between the stars (McIntrye, Cole, etc) and the home grown people.

(technically dream had some pro wrestling experience before but still)
