Those drafts to Raw are pretty awful apart from Owens & Zayn. Please tell me they've not brought McIntyre up to team with Ziggler.

Looks like they're basically just swapping around everyone but the main eventers and a few tag teams for each show.

If Jeff is traded to SD tomorrow and the trades were all decided over the weekend as the commentators suggested then why would Angle give Jeff a us title shot on raw?

It's ridiculous how one-sided the roster is. Bryan, AJ, Nakamura, Orton, Joe, Rusev, Almas & Vega, Asuka, Sheamus & Cesaro etc. I'm actually annoyed that they've got rid of the single-brand PPVs now :lol:

Nakamura's "no speak English" heel gimmick continues to be amazing https://youtu.be/ifjU8yHliGo?t=154

I’m going to the raw house show in Birmingham on the Tuesday :x

WWE have made big errors with this, all they’re essentially done is swap the rosters around. That’s not a superstar shake up. A shake up is supposed to bring about new feuds, this just means the same feuds but on a different night instead.

I see wwe has completely given up on Balor club already then :fp:

Balor Club was a thing before Finn, Gallows and Anderson got together in WWE, so I’ll assume they’ll keep shilling T-shirt’s with Balor Club on them.

They’ve started to upload some WCW Saturday Night on the network, which is nice.

Isn't the Balor Club him and his fans rather than him and Gallows & Anderson?

People are reporting that the 70+ page contract Cena made Nikki sign when they moved in was actually real and not just an insane plot point for Total Divas :lol: :lol:

Anyone have any idea if / when Redemption is airing in the UK? I saw the press release mention that GWN app, but it didn't mention a showing on Spike at all... I'm hoping it'll pop up on 5 On Demand, similarly to those monthly One Night Only shows, and preferably before next Friday's showing of Impact.
