Seth and Becky are old news. Meltzer reported that she was going to live events with him when she wasn't booked and they were spotted several times together outside the company.

I really hate the "Sassy Southern Belle" nickname. Too on the nose. It's like calling Drew McIntyre "That Guy From Scotland".

I don't know that it was necessarily "old news" to those of us who don't subscribe to Meltzer's newsletter and/or follow him on social media, but okay.

As for the news itself, I mean... it's a definite upgrade from dating a Nazi, so cheers to him. I feel like she could do better, but that could just be the fanboy in me talking.

Way too much talking on this show.  I can take Miz in small doses, but long talking segment opening the show which sucked then leading to a dead match that only was good when Lashley and Roman were squaring off made for a shit opener.  I did like the beatdown segment/brawl post-match

nit pick:  Miz showing up for his shitty MIZTC+V with gear on is so f'n lame.  A match out of nowhere?!!?  I hate that telegraphed shit, where we're supposed to pretend that we don't know that it's going to be a match.  At least if Miz makes a challenge for a match it makes sense, but whatever.  This F'n sucked.

I'd dig a Lashley-Roman program for SummerSlam.  That's a good battle of the Bulls matchup and they seem to have good in-ring chemistry.  Elias and Miz can fuck off.  They have good characters but I want to see less of them and not in top matchups.

Oh, and I really dug the Cesaro-Rey match a lot.  That was fun.  Those guys, if they work a program, could have MOTY candidate stuff if given the chance to have a program.  It started a little rough, but then damn, it got really good really fast.  Some awesome spots and reversals in this

What's up with Sheamus anyway?

The only other thing I really liked on the show was the stuff with Nikki and Alexa.  That was good for both of them.  Hey, beneficial booking, what a concept!

Its looking more and more like Sheamus will be retiring, read a report the spinal stenosis issue is at play here. He barely was able to work through Mania, so it's probably done for him. That explains Cesaro allowed to be showcased last night in looking like a star vs Rey. That was a highlight of the show, best match for sure. Some of the other bouts too at least were giving workers who normally dont stand out an opportunity, looking more at that womens four way with Dana and Cross getting shine. But then there was Ricochet and Corbin, hated the finish but makes me wonder if they might give Ricochet the MITB this year if he's doing a random loss to fuckin Corbin.

FWIW I thought the show wasnt nearly as offensive as the Raws since the post Mania one, but it wasnt like it was this great show either.

At least the ringwork seemed decent last night and the talking was kind of rollercoastery....some solid build to MITB (womens contract signing in particular was decent) but others like Miz/Roman garbage was just eh. The Bray segment was bonkers in a good way, I'm def interested to see where this goes next. Love the schlocky horror element being brought into this.

Did Braun ever have a "fuck these guys, I don't want to do this job" face coming out to the ring for the main, it was obvious what the result would be. They are done trying with Braun it feels like, and does anyone want to see a Drew/Corbin vs Braun feud be re-ignited? I sure don't. Match itself had all the buttons and whistles to at least be entertaining enough. Braun almost clobbed Renee Young throwing her chair from the booth at the end too, that probably won't do him any favors.

Corbin is just the new Kane. It's easier to accept. He'll be boring forever and dull in the ring, but continue to get push after push because tall. I think Kane was better on the mic though and had a semi interesting gimmick, so this will be worse.

What is going on with Alexa healthwise?  I liked the match where she couldn't keep her boots tied, but has she been working house shows?  If this is concussion related, at this rate, it seems like she's basically gonna end up forced into early retirement.  They've kept everything quiet but she's barely been in the ring for like a year, comes back for a match here and there and is on the shelf again

While it sucks that Alexa is having issues, I am glad they are using it to establish Nikki and create an interesting story.  In the past they would’ve just thrown a random person in with no rhyme or reason and shuffled them in the background.

Think they’ve done a good job in building Dana in this too.  It may just be out of necessity with folks like Sasha and Nia out but I feel the Women’s match is set up to let a few women come out better than they went in, which is always a positive to me.

My hope, which I'm probably not the first to come up with, would be Becky beating Lacey, then later beating Charlotte. The fans would be pleased until Bayley, who earlier won the mitb, comes out and cashes in to spoil Becky 2 Belts' big night. Show ends with Bayley holding both belts while announcers wonder which belt she will choose (is that a thing still for mitb? that you can cash in on whatever belt you want? idk) Then she opens Raw the next night and officially turns heel. And obviously takes the SD belt.

Bonus points if this ends with mega bitch Bayley being a cheating heel before, at some point in the future, Sasha Banks returns to just beat the shit out of her to a huge pop. Thus giving us our long-awaited Sasha-Bayley feud except with the heel-face reversal.

I thought Bayley was the favorite a few weeks ago and now she basically has been off TV.  Which is sometimes what WWE does with these people.  I mean, several times they had the case winner working the C-show or not being on PPVs prior to their cash-in.

It is been discussed widely before, but WWE seemingly has it in their heads as a collective that the MITB winner can only be booked as someone that never wins so the cash-in will come out of nowhere and provide the shock for which they are looking. I think just the opposite booking would be better the majority of the time.  I am sure this can be disproven by going back and looking at the bookings, but it sure seems that way by memory.

There were rumors months ago that they intend to make this year's winner look like a star, which is mind blowing because the whole concept is a good way to elevate talent - whether that is giving a slimy heel opportunist a chance or just giving a scrappy face a foot in the door.

You'd think the men's winner should win this year since they've blown the case two years in a row - and the year before the two failed (Braun and Corbin) the winner cashed in the night he won it (Ambrose). 

They don't like having two people with cases at the same time so I would not be surprised in conjunction with Becky being booked twice that the women's winner cashes in that night.  It just depends on the t-shirts sales of BECKY 2 BELTS merch if they make her be the first woman to lose it too.  It would be the first of the people with immediate cash-ins to lose...  They like hitting those "first ever" things.

I still think whatever brand the MITB winner is on is what belt they would take from Becky if they cashed in, and she'd keep the other one.

She is dating Rollins so I'm guessing she is staying on RAW.

WWE has also said that even if she loses both belts she is actually on the RAW roster now.

Bray: I want to name our son after Kevin Nash and Sean Waltman!
Jojo: I mean, sure, Kevin Sean Rotunda isn't so bad.
Bray: I don't think you understand...

Still not as stupid as Daniel Bryan and Brie Bella naming their kid after her fucking clothing line.

the clothing line is named after her kid, the kid was born in May 2017 and the clothing line was announced in Nov 2017 it looks like.

Huh, turns out it was.   For some reason I could have sworn Birdie was named after they already had branded something else that.


Either way, Birdie is still a horrible name for a human being.

They did. The stupid Bella underwear line, Birdie Bee. AFAIK they were talking about that as a project and a name on TD long before Brie was pregnant.
