I know Fray has his own insights and thoughts but it is clear to me that BillThompson should read my tweets and posts as much as Fray does.

What are the odds of an NXT involvement during the WM competing shows? Even if it's just in the same vain as the current appearances of a pre show signing and off-iPPV angle?

So if this is the defacto WWN Live thread, I guess I can talk about SHINE in here (and also SHIMMER when they do the Mania iPPVs). The last show was overbooked with too many interference spots, hopefully the show on January 29th will be simpler. They've got new champ Taylor Made vs. former champ Santana Garrett for the title in the main event, plus Allysin Kay vs. Su Yung in a grudge match that if they clamp down on the outside bullshit, should be really good.

I know the booking of SHINE in the last year has been a pretty big complaint about the promotion. The PWPonderings crew seem to talk about it every time on their Newscast whenever a SHINE iPPV comes up.

Tommaso Ciampa has been added to Saturday and Sunday's shows in Orlando - he's wrestling Ethan Page on Saturday, and will wrestle someone eliminated from one of the tournaments on Sunday.

A good replacement. Ciampa actually had a solid match with Ethan Page in ROH not that long ago (when he was Ethan Gabriel Owens).

It is a pretty safe assumption that American Alpha will challenge the winners of the tag tourney for a match in Dallas? Isn't it?

...but how would that work? Presumably WWE doesn't want Gable & Jordan losing on an Evolve show, and (presumably) Evolve would prefer to not have their newly crowned Evolve Tag Team Champions lose. I would think they challenge another team in the tourney (maybe whoever loses the finals or the winner of the 2nd chance tourney).

A time limit draw? Usually, not a fan of such endings, but if it is sold as a battle to a stalemate, it could work.

I don't get the "how it would work" talk. At worst NXT talent go 50/50 with non-contracted talent and at times non-contracted talent has gone over contracted talent.
