Does anyone even do these threads anymore?

 

First segment has Elias getting buried.  Now we are onto a fatal 5 way match which is burying guy after guy by having them getting pinned within minutes of the match starting.

Michael Cole saying kick ass and take names is so cringe

Elias should be Intercontinental Champ. Guy has "IT."

I cannot for the life of me understand why he is not in the main event competing for World titles. He has huge charisma and Stage presence, as well as the look.

 

I simply do not get why they book him as a joke.  He is indeed massively over.

 Cause he is a shit wrestler.

you don’t have to be great to be main event level, but you have to be better than Elias is.

Yea that really held Goldberg back for 20 years.

Elias is awesome, but its beyond frustrating to be a fan because of how they book him.

As sad as it sounds I skipped RAW for the MTV Movie awards.... will someone leave a time stamp when Bray is on so I can DVR to that part and delete the rest.

Well at least they gave us a good main event. Just dont fuck it up with an interference or a shitty finish.

I have nothing additional to add unfortunately,  because I went to sleep around 9:30.  I'll have to read some recaps somewhere. 

 

Story of my RAW viewership over the last 6 or 7 years.

He's already very much just another guy. Look what they did to him tonight. It's almost like sending the message of "if you get too much heat from the crowd, we're gonna have the babyfaces bury you" type deal.

I remember when a solid main event of Rollins vs DB would have had me excited to watch, but the second it was announced I knew it would have a shit run in or interference. Like I hate to jump on the bandwagon of “wwe is going in the shitter” but watch any other wrestling company, literally any other one that has a tv deal, and show me worse booking or worse storylines at this point. When I watched AEW (both ppv’s) it’s like damn I didn’t realize how shit wwe had gotten until we had a better alternative. Njpw is awesome too, my only thing is I sometimes lose a bit of interest when I can’t understand some of the promos ect. There is more talent now than almost any other time in wrestling but wwe continues to just almost try and fail. I can’t even be mad at guys like Corbin at this point. I just figure he is a guy that’s given a shit sandwich creatively and does as he is told to keep a job. Sad time for wwe and hope they can turn it around... 

 

NXT is awesome though....

50/50 booking is killing the in-ring product.

Elias is another on a long list of guys that should be given a look but for whatever reason he does not get VKM hard enough. So in classic WWE fashion they completely ignore crowd response and bury the guy.
