Kurt Angle announced The B-Team vs. The Revival and Sasha Banks & Bayley vs. The Riott Squad for the show. Curtis Axel & Bo Dallas vs. The Revival appears to be a non-title match.

Does anyone have hard numbers on the pay disparity between NXT and Raw/SD rosters? For average spot guys like Tyler Breeze, Tye Dillinger, etc..

The Revival finally looks like they're going to be taken seriously now that they're healthy (TBD).

I assume the guys like Roode, Balor, et al were probably handsomely compensated in NXT due to their existing name value.

Basically I'm looking at Undisputed Era, Aleister Black, Johnny Gargano, and Tommaso Ciampa and am fan concerned about them going more Bo Dallas (BO LIEVE) before this B Team run than Seth Rollins.

Or Neville before his CW run. Or the Vaudevillians.

You know the same shit that gets discussed all the time. Just wondering how big of a pay bump is it.

Fair to say I'm probably being short sighted.

I'll be at Raw tonight so I hope it's good. Doesn't matter really, as most any live event is fun. Can't wait to see The Baddest Woman On The Planet, Alicia Fox vs Ronda Rousey. Poor Alicia - she's Ronda's debut jobber opponent, she had that fight with Ronda's husband that got her some heat, SHE'S IN HER HOMETOWN. She gonna get fucked up.

Look even if you want nothing to do with Raw, watch the paul heyman segment with Renee because it is a MASTER CLASS in pro wrestling. Hell it's just amazing acting. the man makes himself cry. He looks like he didn't shave all week.

Felt like they were writing him off tv with that segment.  He's got no hope left and no one wants to work with him anymore.  Could lead to a swerve at the ppv or someone new joining him but I doubt it.

Great segment

Super fun match. I wanted Bar to win but New Day is basically the ACE tag team of WWE it feels like and they're so over it's hard to argue with keeping them in the top feuds.

And WWE continues to twist the knife.

SmackDown's side of SummerSlam has been really well built up, IMO.  Pretty much every match has had a solid build and I'm looking forward to most of them, unlike RAW which, Rousey/Bliss aside, just seemed to slap together rematches or odd feuds (why the hell is Balor/Corbin on this card?), topped by a match that I'm beyond tired of even caring about, regardless of the fact they seem to finally have figured out a good way to build to it.

I know it won't happen but I really want Heyman to help Roman win and become his new mouthpiece. They've set up that Roman just can't do it on his own and Paul has every reason in the world to want revenge on Brock (and we know he can't stand to be on the sidelines). It would be so much better than vanilla face Roman.

I would love for Heyman to seemingly screw brock and reigns wins the title. Heyman in the ring and heyman starts laughing at reigns and points to the Tron and Braun is cashing in. Braun is his new beast

This is the booked in the corner again.  Brock-Reigns is underwhelming.  We had Roman get cashed in on after his big win with Sheamus before.  We had someone cash in during a Reigns-Brock with Seth before.  Leave the cash-in nonsense out and try to have something fresh.

Just have Braun get attacked by LARS or someone after he beats Owens (and he HAS to beat Owens or the fans will fucking DIE) so that he can't cash in at Slam and have Roman win one way or another because Brock has to drop it. Keep Braun in a monster feud for a few months and feud Roman with Corbin (if they still won't turn Roman heel) and start something with Dean and Seth. Also keep building Drew up because after a Braun run he should be the guy.

I think some advertised matches post Summerslam are Owens/Roman... so let's book it the most WWE possible. It's Roman challenging KO for the title he stole.

If Reigns is really the guy then they just need to put that belt on him and plow forward (which is what they should have done years ago). This will just hurt him more so I expect WWE to do it.
I watched RAW. I thought it sucked. The usual problems and such.

All jokes aside. I can see brock retaining. He’s on raw after summerslam which has to be for a reason. Maybe he gets cashed in on there by whomever has the case.

It wouldn’t stop them from trying, but I don’t know how you can expect Reigns to be taken seriously if he blows ANOTHER title shot vs Lesnar in a PPV main event.

Rusev & Lana vs. Almas & Vega added to the slam preshow and we now have 12 announced matches officially:

Universal Champion Brock Lesnar defending against Roman Reigns
Raw Women's Champion Alexa Bliss defending against Ronda Rousey
WWE Champion AJ Styles defending against Samoa Joe
Daniel Bryan vs. The Miz
SmackDown Women's Champion Carmella defending against Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair in a triple threat match
Intercontinental Champion Dolph Ziggler defending against Seth Rollins
United States Champion Shinsuke Nakamura defending against Jeff Hardy
Braun Strowman vs. Kevin Owens (If Owens wins, he gets Strowman's Money in the Bank briefcase)
Finn Balor vs. Baron Corbin
SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Bludgeon Brothers defending against The New Day
WWE Cruiserweight Champion Cedric Alexander defending against Drew Gulak
Rusev & Lana vs. Andrade "Cien" Almas & Zelina Vega in a mixed tag match (pre-show)


There's some stuff on here I'm really into (bryan/miz, aj/joe) and nothing aside from maybe the Carmella match looks like it will be bad (fingers crossed). Also I like that they aren't relying on HHH/Cena/Taker/etc. Hopefully this will mark the end of Brock's dominance of the main event picture. Roman isn't a big improvement but at least he's around regularly.
