Imagine if Zayne and Owens, and next year Daniel Bryan, went back to ROH/New Japan! Along with probably Neville whenever his contract runs out, there are a few more big names I could see leaving if WWE continue to frustrate and misuse great talent, the likes of Rusev, Ziggler, Gallows and Anderson to name a few all could walk. If they all ended up in the one place, ideally it’d be ROH with their current amazing roster , WWE would have some serious competition on their hands! Even Stephen Amell has jumped to ROH for a show this month! :lol: And just to stick it to Vince and Hunter CM Punk would probably pop up too!

So Smackdown:

I'm so glad they got the title off Jinder. His run has murdered the WWE title scene. If they put it back on him that will be an even bigger joke. The guy has no business being in that spot. Looking forward to AJs promo next week.

Pro Wrestling Sheet wrote:Pro Wrestling Sheet has learned Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn went against a creative directive given to them before SmackDown last night and we’re told it contributed to them being sent home.

Multiple sources tell us Sami and Kevin were supposed to “feed” for New Day following Zayn vs. Kofi Kingston yesterday, but for some reason they didn’t follow directions and left the ring.

The PWTorch glossary of insider wrestling terms defines “feeding” as: “The heel’s role during a babyface comeback where he runs at the babyface only to be repeatedly fended off, with the hope that the series of bumps by the heel will generate positive fan heat for the babyface.”

Owens hit the ring as soon as the match ended and attacked Kofi as planned. However, he and Sami quickly bailed from the ring. New Day then stood waiting, same for the sound crew who didn’t play anyone’s music, and the segment ended awkwardly when the two wrestlers seemingly went off script by not taking their planned beating afterward.

Since publishing the story on Owens/Zayn being sent home, multiple sources reached out saying the duo have been slightly difficult to work with lately and seem unhappy backstage.

It’s worth noting that they were both close with recently fired writer Jimmy Jacobs and Neville (who hasn’t been heard from since walking out).

They've had a number of scoops that have turned out to be true recently sonmaybe there's something in this.

Punishing the fans more than anything though.

I've listen to Tazz's thoughts and I agree with him that no way was the plan for them to get back into the ring. It doesn't make any kind of sense, how it played out is how it always played out.

My bet is this will lead to an angle where they go rogue at Survivor Series, a bit like Awesome Truth.

That was my take when I started hearing about this. I think it’s wwe trying to blur the lines a bit between reality and fiction.

I went to the Nottingham show last night. Can confirm that Owens and Zayn were not there :(

Got AJ Styles and Nakamura (and Jinder) in the ring together for the main event though :datass:

It's a shame for the live fans though as the roster isn't exactly stellar right now on either show and Owens is one of the most enjoyable to watch.

Seems Jinder won't win the title back before or on the India tour, he's going to wrestle Triple H instead. That's a pretty good trade off for the fans out there (as dreadful a match as it'll be)

Seen as it's HHH and not an expected talent to be tied up it could be a misdirection I suppose.

Maybe Vince woke up one day and realised this Jinder experiment has been a monumental flop. Even the people in India apparently don't give a gooseberry fool as when he was champion WWE Network subs decreased in the country.

Bound For Glory was really good, aside from that six sides of steel match with the MMA guys, that was a mess. A shame the Red Wedding match got cut. I love Rosemary.

Catching up on the post show Impact and the whole Johnny Impact / Mundo / Morrison segment was hilarious.

Rosemary rocks. She'd be a great Sister Abigail, then again I also don't want WWE wasting her. It's cooler that she's in the indy's and Impact imo.

Don't suppose there's any chance Bound for Glory is being repeated by Spike UK (or whatever channel)?

No idea, it's on the Demand 5 app or whatever it's called into December though. In the Sport section.

Hope they'll do a Styles vs Nakamura feud for the title at some point soon.

JoJo Offerman (ring announcer) is the latest on the roster to have nude photos leaked. They're on Celeb Jihad (along with a load of racism).

I still can’t work out if celebjihad is a piss take website made by non Muslims or a website run by Muslims who want to shame women.

I wonder who soured on the LED ring apron on NXT, presumably Triple H? It’s been absent for the past 2 months.

The floating crane cam on SmackDown has also been scrapped, as has the cameraman on the apron, which was a WCW thing.

Triple H replacing Jason Jordan on the Raw team. That's more like it.

WWE is really going all out for Survivor Series now. It's always good when they get desperate
