Smackdown deal done with FOX 205million a year for 5 years.

Smackdown on FOX. Couple of things. I am quite pleased that the show is moving to Fridays, I never really understood why it was on Tuesdays to begin with. I do wonder whether Smckdown will stay live though. I suspect FOX will want a polished show with definite start and end times for each match to capitalise on advert breaks. This might require a bit of editing that a live show can't guarantee.
I also have a bit of concern regarding FOX's history.

I expect a few more USA! USA! matches, maybe more foreign wrestlers portrayed as baddies and I am not sure the women will be treated with the respect they have fought hard to gain.
I may well be wrong, but a nagging bit at the back of my mind says I am not.


2.) 22 May 2018 16:30:49
To be fair, Smackdown is bang on 2 hours 99% of the time. Raw is the one that tends to run past its 3 hour slot, usually by sbout 20 minutes. I think Smackdown would be fine staying as a live show.

It can't hurt.

I think Backlash has to go down as one of the worst ppvs, it started of great with Rollins and Miz then afterwards turned into a car crash of a PPV.
WWE need to start to listen and take a long hard look at their creative team.

The WWE's policy of giving us a bunch of Wrestlemania rematches on the next PPV needs to stop.

I can't help but enjoy the battle of wills between Vince and the Fans regarding Roman.

I suspect they'll eventually book him against a child molester and the crowd will still be 50/ 50.


2.) 08 May 2018 20:03:16
Could not agree more. Apart from Rollins and the Miz it was an awful PPV that just seemed to be going through the motions. There was not a single surprise, not a single moment that made you sit up and like a large number of fans, I left the Reigns/ Joe match before it ended. The chants of CM Punk, Rusev Day and beat the traffic summed it up.
Vince will still want Reigns to be champ, despite all public opinion. In the WWE they keep saying how important the 'Universe' is, but the way the fans are being treated, fed pointless rematches and idiotic storylines and then be expected to lap it up is appalling.


3.) 08 May 2018 20:47:39
It's unfortunate that they are continuing with the monthly PPV instead of reducing them to give time for stories to build. I had hoped that with the brand split we would get alternate Raw and Smackdown PPV each month but it didn't happen. They need to give stories a chance to breath and build instead of the current ADHD turnaround they currently have. I only watch the big 4 now because all of the others generally feeling like an episode of Raw or Smackdown.

The only good thing about Backlash (besides Rollins) is that people actually left during the Reigns match. Surely WWE have to pay attention to that.


6.) 09 May 2018 17:59:28
The AJ V Nak match was turning into a great match before a terrible ending.
you would think that the WWE would pay attention to fans but I don't think they will.

Reports are coming through that Paige has been told to retire, if this is true it is very sad news she was a great talent in ring and on the mic.

Rated RKO

1.) 13 Jan 2018 11:05:02
Yeah I've seen that as well. Terrible news for her, hopefully she will be given a managers role or something like that.


2.) 13 Jan 2018 12:53:16
I am not the greatest fan of women's wrestling, but I do feel for her. Apparently it is the same sort of injury that forced Edge to retire.
She has been through a terrible year, granted a lot of it self-inflicted, but it finally looked like all that was behind her.
I hope they continue to give her a role in WWE as wrestling is so obviously important to her.


3.) 15 Jan 2018 10:14:54
Cant help but feel sorry for her on what's been a real crappy period in her life.

This is probably why the WWE don't normally hand the keys to the kingdom to teenagers.

Can't shake the feeling that Strowman or Kane are going to show up during Taker v Reigns.

Rated RKO

1.) 01 Apr 2017 23:46:50
Kane appears to be unofficially retired as he is running for Mayor in his home city/ district. I would be kind of surprised though, if Strowman only did the Battle Royal and nothing else.

Wrestlemania is rumoured to be 6 and a half hours long this year.

WM is like an all you can eat buffet

Wrestle Kingdom is like fine dining.

I know which approach I think works better in terms of the product.


2.) 10 Mar 2017 13:36:48
That sounds about right. Last year was 4 hours plus a 2 hour pre show.

That does mean they may have to beef up the Goldberg Vs Lesnar and make it at least 2 minutes or the show will end too early.


3.) 10 Mar 2017 16:17:35
Luckily farmfoods have got those chicago town takeaway stuffed crust pizzas on offer 2 for a fiver so i'll be prepared this year lol.


4.) 10 Mar 2017 17:27:34
So that will be six hours and 29 minutes for everyone else, then the Goldberg match. It will probably still go short.


5.) 10 Mar 2017 18:24:42
I heard 7. Considering how short Oldberg/ Bork is going to be, I wouldn't be surprised if everything but the ME got the time last year's did and then with the hype videos, entrances, match, and brief post match celebration for the ME. The entire show ended up clocking in at about 7 hours and 15 minutes or so.

Then next year, they'll start the preshow an hour earlier, and start advertising the main show as a 5 hour event to get it to 8 total hours. NXT will start getting a full 3 hours plus a 1 hour preshow. Then the year after that, they'll start doing an international event or something, the night before TakeOver, that will get a little bit more time each year. Finally by like WM 40, it'll get to the point that there is something being broadcasted all the time throughout the entire week. With HHH's daughters hosting shows along with holograms of former wrestlers and D-list celebrities, while continually hyping the main event of Reigns vs MechaRobot-Vince and the 10 billion man Chinese army.

I don't see why WWE couldn't have Strowman defeat Lesnar for the title this would get the fans back onside and make Strowman that monster they want too.
Then Strowman could feud with Reigns further down the line over the title.

A Shield v Authority could be good but I think we'll get Reigns v authority.
