The WWE exists in some sort of parallel, alternate universe at the moment where on the one hand you've got stuff like NXT and the Mae Young Classic which are treated as legit, and then there's RAW and SmackDown which have now reverted back to the early 90s and WCW/WWF wackiness straight out of a made-for-TV cartoon movie. Just posing the questions makes you yourself look stupid for even attempting to look at it sensibly. Why were there cameras placed all over Miz's limo, why was Braun Strowman willingly hiding in a load of rubbish, having evidently got out earlier in the night to place said rubbish in Miz's locker room; the horrible acting from Daniel Bryan and Kurt Angle earlier in the night...

From the House of Horrors match, to Bray Wyatt in drag, to the ongoing exploits of Breezango (that are never quite as funny as they seem to think they are beyond the opening titles, at least to me) they've gone back to the days of Robocop saving Sting, The Dungeon of Doom, Sting again with the British Bulldog on a beach saving some kids from an exploding bomb on a boat placed by Vader and Sid Vicious, and Leslie Nielsen trying to solve the case of the two Undertakers.

The mindset appears to be to no longer acknowledge that the cameramen, the production crew...all this other stuff exists (as if you're watching a drama or movie).

Dave Meltzer really is beginning to look like Kane.

Dave Meltzer says they’re doing a PPV in Scotland in May. That can’t be right surely?

If true and he doesn't mean RAW/SmackDown again, that sounds to me like another NXT special. Would be very surprised if it's Backlash (which was this year's May event).

Stephanie McMahon did tell The Scottish Sun they were definitely coming back for a TV event.

Well that's embarrassing. It does look like it could be a PPV/TV logo though. After Great Balls of Fire anything is possible, but it shows he went and reported something without even verifying it with anybody else. I don't know if the original post was tongue n cheek.

Seems he may have also forgotten the UK PPVs that ran from 1997 to 2003 as well, which were available in Canada and Europe via Sky Box Office (and were introduced in late 1997 by a Bret Hart storyline in which he hated the US so much therefore they couldn't watch it). These shows initially started out being very successful both on PPV and in terms of live gate, but gradually diminished as they became house shows that never even got referenced on TV.

And of course there was NXT in 2015.

It's really bizarre, he was supposed to be facing Rusev for a spot on the SD team at SS. With that leaked SS poster with Cena as the special guest referee, and them apparently building to Cena vs Mahal for Cena to break the World Championship record it feels a little as if Styles is being used to raise excitement and ratings, at his own expense, because he's bound to lose again, surely? Especially with the India tour being after SS, and Styles not even going to India...

I'd die if he won though... :shifty: :o SS kinda needs everything turned on it's head to be honest, the Champion vs Champion thing has led to a woeful card because we're in an era with woeful Champions.

Maybe ticket sales are slow for SmackDown. RAW always sells out in the UK, but SD tends to have the upper deck darped off.

I forgot they're both from the UK this coming week. Seems to stack the deck even more against Styles. With the delay to US broadcast they're not going to want such a big spoiler floating around before the show. I'm really looking forward to the shows though.

People may tune in to see how he wins it. I mean WCW gave away that Mick Foley was winning the title and that basically backfired big time on them.
