Opening the show with Great Balls of Fire made the product feel ancient.

Mauro Ranallo is covering the Mayweather/McGregor press conference right now. He'll also be calling the fight when it happens. Why WWE has him tucked away on NXT is beyond me.

Vince probably doesn't see him as mentally strong enough to be lead commentator on raw due to the JBL situation. That seems like how his mind would work.

I hope she's not who Kurt Angle was on the phone with.

I wonder if most WWE fans would even know who she is? She's hardly at the level of an Eric Bischoff.

Imagine if they brought back the storyline with her and AJ Styles.

It would make some sense though if WWE are on the verge or have purchased the TNA video library, which is now I guess a defunct brand to a certain extent, were it not for GWF currently retaining the Impact name.

I'm positive one day we're going to hear Michael Cole go "My God that's...that's...that's Vince Russo!"

Is this Miz/Ambrose feud and all variations on it ever going to end.

Global Force have suspended El Patron after an altercation with Paige at an airport.

Another WWE botch job. Moving it to after 205 Live killed interest in it. So rather than one flop in 205 Live (which should be taped prior to SD and aired on a Thursday through Sunday) they ended up with 2 lame duck shows. You look at the most-viewed shows on the Network and 205 Live is nowhere to be found.

The worst thing is Talking Smack has been great at showcasing the spontaneity of the wrestlers and been far more free-flowing and unscripted than normal TV.

Seems very odd, I thought people actually liked this show.

How very WWE.

They did when it was Live but unfortunately viewership dropped off drastically when it moved to after 205 Live. So rather than move 205 Live (which is also dying on its arse) they've scrapped it.

I no longer watch NXT, never really watched 205 live. I enjoy talking smack. :| Seriously considering dropping the network, I already only watch Raw and Smackdown via the WWEs own hilights on YouTube. With that and other wrestling related stuff on YouTube like WCPW, wrestling with wregret, OSW review, Being the Elite etc, there's plenty out there to keep a man happy. Most network stuff seems to pop up on YouTube anyway by the looks of it.

I've stopped watching 205 too, and I'm about 6 weeks behind on NXT. WCW and old episodes of WWF keep winning out. And despite having seen a lot of it before, I still get hooked on wanting to find out what happens on the next episode, such was the old way of doing things.

SmackDown this week is the perfect example of absolutely nothing happening. I could have saved myself an hour and a half and I would have missed nothing. Finished it wishing I'd stuck with the highlights.
