Who else did you expect? Renee? They needed a woman up there for obvious reasons.

Would have preferred Stephanie, to be fair, but whatever.

I was secretly hoping for Trish although that was completely fantasy booking. I just wanted anyone but Lita. I find her awful on all those panel segments.

The whining from that would overwhelm the whole damn thing.

It seems like this is set up to fail for some reason what with the potentially sub par commentary, to taping the show months before premier, to having the finals live at the 205 death slot. Hopefully it will overcome all of this of course

Maybe. You're probably right. However, when these WWE decision makers like HHH and even Stephanie step out of character and just give commentary on wrestling, I find their insight and look at things to be interesting. If you had like a Mauro calling the action and keeping Stephanie focused and Stephanie stayed out of character, I'd probably love the pairing.

During the CWC, when he stopped being Daniel Bryan and started being Bryan Danielson the guy who loves wrestling, I thought Mauro and Bryan were a great team that felt natural, especially by the end of the tournament.

I think both Stephanie and Triple H have great things to add to the product if they were able to be their OOC selves in a semi IC way. Unfortunately, they both (Stephanie especially) have a large chunk of detractors who will hate literally anything she says or does reflexively.

I loved Bryan's commentary on the CWC and I feel like he helped get over all the characters and wrestlers especially Kendrick. It felt like a very real case of a friend hoping against hope his friend succeeds and it added so much to his matches.

Viper has been renamed Piper Niven. Obviously she'd never get to keep Orton's nickname for herself, but Piper is a BAD NAME for a Scottish girl. I'm remembering Becky Lynch's irish dancing debut.

So, so, so happy for Evie. Been a big fan for three years. Like Cross, just knew it would be a matter of time before she would end up in WWE. I definitely hope she has a great performance in the MYC.
