I wonder if they are building towards Angle V HHH earlier than Wrestlemania, maybe at the Rumble or something. The build seems to have started too early for it to be a Mania match.

Last night would seem to point towards Kurt Angle vs. Triple H and Triple H vs. Braun Strowman, but in what order I wonder? Kurt Angle vs. Jason Jordan is in there too, I'm sure. So that fits the path of the Royal Rumble, whatever the RAW PPV is in February, and then WrestleMania.

That's true. There's several ways they could maneuver it.

The WWE RAW and SmackDown replays on Sky Sports Arena are now airing on Tuesdays at 9pm and Wednesday's at 10pm. Both shows unedited, apart from the usual.

Braun is getting the "honoured" HHH spot at Mania I feel.

Looks like Braun is going to be trying to make HHH look a threat until Mania I reckon which is a pretty bad idea.

That's a much better decision. Hopefully SD replay won't keep getting bumped later and later by live tennis, golf or even netball.

Yeah that's my gut feeling. Angle may well face HHH earlier with Jordan turning on Angle or something. That though could be a bad decision for his character long term wise.

They do have to be careful though with how the HHH and Angle feud goes as surely Angle staying as GM would make little sense. And I can't see him returning as a full time wrestler.

I’m not sure if they’ll do a HHH/Strowman match, I think the interaction at the end last night was just a little extra to send everyone home happy. I’m thinking it’ll be HHH/Angle at the Rumble and HHH/Shane at ‘Mania. Although looking at the match last night I’m not sure if Angle is capable of much, he doesn’t even seem to be able to stand up straight!

Angle does have awfully bent knees.

Didn't even consider Hunter/Shane, but yeah that's got to be another strong possibility too. I mean who doesn't want another McMahon family feud...

After watching a lot of MMA watching Shane sell an ankle lock horrendously ruined that move. Submission moves shouldn't be cinched in for fecking 30 seconds+ without the guy tapping.

It was billed for tonight at SS (which they could still do but I can't find any mention of it on wwe.com), but according to PWinsider Jinder Mahal vs. AJ Styles is now the main event for Clash of Champions. Can't wait. :|

The cruiserweight division is so embarrassing to watch, it feels like the women’s division during the diva era and any time Alicia Fox is involved.

Apparently the WWE are in talks with Facebook Live for a new weekly TV show, to air after SmackDown, so 205 Live might be on borrowed time (or they're going to tape it).

Main Event tapes before RAW though, and that would make the SD Tapings with this potential new show 4 hours long. People might be more inclined to stick around if they knew top tier RAW talent was turning up though.

Well to be fair, AJ could wrestle a broom in a 4* match. I think most people felt their last match was Jinder's best match of all time (not a high bar I know) but it wouldn't be so bad to see a rematch on a PPV.

AJ is at such a great level right now. He has carried the company through some really shitty PPVs since he joined.

I guess this Women's Royal Rumble match is a cert.

Did they really have to introduce the new Smackdown women the exact same way the ones from Raw were introduced just one night before?! Shows that Smackdown really is the B show. The 3 from Smackdown even looked like a budget version of the 3 from Raw. Liv though :wub:

Would love for this to happen, but not at the Royal Rumble itself. It could work, but I think the "main" Rumble should stand alone. It would make a great selling point for the final hour of a Raw

I've only just realised Bray Wyatt (in drag) vs The Demon went nowhere.
