All are welcome. I watch AEW and NXT as much as RAW and I have given up on Smackdown.

I haven’t see it, who is advertised for the show? Le Champion perhaps? Would love to see Mox come tearing through the crowd looking like a pirate. You got any favorites right now? I am digging Darby Allen. The dude is insane!

They should be able to limp along on the Saudi money for the next 8 years.

I've heard the house shows/live events haven't done well and they're scaling back (not to mention the corporate shake up that happened this past week). WWE has their quarterly phone conference set for this Thursday I believe it is and the numbers are reportedly not good, hence the shake up. But WWE is so viable financially, I'm not worried about them.

waiting for Saudi Prince MbS to be announced as new CFO... jk.

but really, I don't think it'll make much of a difference. house shows are being cut back, which is money out of the wrestlers pockets. BUT this is after wrestlers complained about too many house shows. so it's a lose-lose for WWE on that front.

they have more money than they have ever had, their stock was a bit inflated and the reality check has helped. these TV deals with sponsors and the Saudi money for the foreseeable future means nothing will change.

Exactly. Only good thing about fewer house shows is it allows the wrestlers to get more rest and have a reduced schedule a la AEW. But yes, money out of their pockets. Also, house shows were a way to test thing since it wasn't televised (talent, storylines, etc.). Fewer opportunities now.

So Brock vs. Ricochet at the Saudi show. Think this goes any better than the Lesner feud with Ray Mysterio? Do they even book for this feud for the next month? I mean with Lesner vs. Drew McIntyre at WM we know (pretty sure anyway) that nothing at the Saudi show counts.

lol. the saudi shows have never counted. Pretty sure if you go back to the other ones you will see us all saying it's a glorified house show. Nothing ever happens.

Ok WTF WWE? Shayna Baszler BIT Becky Lynch? You know she can legitimately beat the crap out of most of the roster (women and men) and you have her BITING people? Just send her out there and have her demolish Lynch in round about 12 seconds and then beat up all the guys coming out to separate them. What possible story line would this fit? Bazler marks her wins with a scar on the neck? Just take it to the next step and have her pee on the women she crushes. Think McFly, think!

Oh, and Alistar Black can have one of the following
1. Strange board uplift in intro
2 speaking
You can have one but not both.

Looks like you are getting your moneys worth for the Austin AWE show!
