  • I'll try to tackle some of this....

    There was a "draft" the other day and the stars go on that show? 
        Essentially yes, and it was pretty ridiculous. Fox owns one show. USA the other. So stars are "exclusive" to that show.
        Some crossover at pay-per-views and maybe for some titles (woman's tag belts are one I believe)

    There is Raw and Smackdown which I thought were two separate things or aren't they?
         They are. You can add NXT as well. (AEW too if you want). All different shows with "exclusive" talent.

    Do the wrestlers now only go to that show and no other areas?  This sounds silly to me...
         They are assigned to their specific show, but travel pretty extensively. When people get bored, they'll have another "draft" probably.

    Is there a Champ belt for each of the shows since the wrestlers seem attached only to that now?
        Yes. Raw has the Universal Champion -  Smackdown has the WWE Championship. Etc. Lots of titles.
        This link is easier than me typing.  https://www.wwe.com/titlehistory/wwe-championship

    So there is 5 HWC belts instead of 1?  Is it becoming boxing?
        Not quite...but there are a lot of belts...just got to generate that interest....see also the 24/7 title.
        But there are a lot of MMA people showing up, and Tyson Fury too I guess.

    My brief two cents. Feel free to add or correct folks.



    Thanks for this.  This reminds me of when WWF guys were jumping ship to go with another organization and people were all over the place and it was tough to follow.  That is why I got out of it.

    This is tough to follow.  Chris Jericho is a singer but Sting is still around, that dude has to be 60 years old now?

    Glad you guys are enjoying it though.

    Jericho still wrestles?  Crazy.  He is always promoting his music.

    Sting finally retired huh?  Wow.  

    What the hell is AEW?

    He had to. He finally signed with WWE and got injured in his 2nd match. So we never got the Undertaker vs. Sting Wrestlemania everyone wanted.

    AEW (All Elite Wrestling) is another wrestling organization founded by Cody Rhodes. Tony Khan is the owner

    Fiend is the Crimson Ghost which is the Misfits logo/icon/mascot.

    The mask doesn't look like the crimson ghost but I was just wondering if that is where the idea came from?

  • OK, I watched AEW the other night.  The talent for some wasn't that great but I guess that is to be expected?  Actually it was "private party" that was piss poor talent wise and the Freshly Squeezed/Best Friends thing was a little odd.

    Found out that Dusty Rhodes' kid Cody is a part of this.  I loved the American Dream so I'll give Cody a shot.

    He will be wrestling Chris Jericho which should be good.

    Not sure how long this will last?

    whole PPV was really good, although most NXT Takeovers usually are. Finn Balor/Matt Riddle was probably the weakest match of the night.It was ok but the others were way better. I did miss the pre-show however. Wasn't really expecting Kevin Owens to be the 4th member so that was pretty sick. That bump that Ciampa/Cole took at the end was insane!

    Survivor series tonight, my predictions:

    The Fiend over Daniel Bryan
    Rey Mysterio over Brock Lesnar (with the help from Cain Velazquez)
    Adam Cole over Pete Dunne (wouldn't surprise me if Dunne won though)
    AJ Styles over Roderick Strong and Shinsuke
    Shayna Baszler over Becky and Bayley
    Undisputed Era over New Day and Viking Raiders
    Women's Team RAW over Smackdown and NXT (Flair and Nattie survive)
    Men's Team NXT over Team RAW and Smackdown (only cause they are probably more "united" than the others although we don't know who's on Team NXT yet)

    This PPV should be great. Only match i'm pretty confident in for the winner is the Fiend beating Daniel Bryan. Every other match I think is up on the air.
