Why not give it to the unmarried Uso?  Enter Mandy's Rose garden, if you will.

bah gawd a hotel key and he DONT KNOW. That was a ton of mini-segments in just a few minutes and they all forwarded the storylines. I don't think Becky looked like a punk. She also cut a really good promo at the start about how everyone is trying to copy her and the difference between her and asuka.

Oh, the promo was great. Which is a testament to how over Becky is, since I usually skip those things. I'm talking about how long it took her to dispatch Peyton Royce, compared to how Asuka made short work of Billie Kay.

Holy fuck what a match between Mysterio and Andrade.  Felt like what a Takeover match would have been like between them if Rey made a guest appearance.

I am not sure I ever saw Otis in my sporiac Takeover watching, but his segment made me laugh and since we are in a post money drawing era, fuck it.

If you only watched Takeover, you've sadly never seen Otis, Brody.  He never got on the main card, only the matches they filmed for a week later.

But he is great.

Okay, so will Shane/Miz win the tag titles? And if so, how? I am fully expecting Shane to dive in front of Miz and take the Brogue kick to set up the Skull Crushing Finale victory. But then when/how do they lose the belts? Do they use this team to help put over a different team or will it just go right back to The Bar?

The WWE toy line is pretty good about making a variety of guys past and present at this point.  Apparently the Red Rooster they made has been on delay for some time.  Someone got their hands on one so if you want it, get your Terry Taylor toy for a low $1,000!

My only "negative" about the match: why does Vince still have such a bug up his ass about last names?

Apropos of nothing, how common is it for a wrestler from a team to get a singles push, and not only do the partners feud, but they technically never even actually break up? The "Marty" of the team just falls back, and takes a support role.

For some reason, off the top of my head, the last team I can think of that would describe what I'm talking about is Men on a Mission, but it has to have occurred more recently than that, right?

My only issue with the Rey/Almas match was the unnecessary way the ending was booked. The Vega interference didn't really give Almas an advantage. There's nothing illegal about knocking a guy off the top rope and him landing on his nuts. Excessive distractions are a distraction for me, as a viewer. Had the diversion of the referee allowed Almas to clock Rey with a foreign object sure, it works. That was a clean finish which was built to look otherwise, and I'm not entirely sure why.

Don't get me wrong here, that shit was nuts and hats off to both men. Some spots I'd never seen before since I'm not really dialed in to any kind of Lucha work or whatever, and I'm happy to see such a groundswell of support for the match. My own single gripe and need to voice it should speak volumes for how much I was invested in it.

Also, I enjoy that to make Becky look bigger backstage (as they do with everyone to be fair), the backstage interviewer was wearing thin flip-flops.

Haven't watched Smackdown! but I'm assuming Shane and Miz win at the Royal Rumble then lose titles via miscommunication at the February PPV to set up their match at WrestleMania.

Also what happened to the Bar and Sanity being in titles scene? Was that just one week, lame duck pre tape storyline that they forgot?

When was the last time we had a top belt change hands at the Rumble? Ignoring the 2016 Rumble where a major championship defense was Roman Reigns against everyone, is CM Punk dropping the strap to The Rock the last time? It feels like the Rumble produces successful defenses of the top championship because so much hype is placed on the Rumble match itself.

I'm just trying to figure out how much I'll be let down when Finn loses to Lesnar and gets shunted down to midcard hell. The only way to salvage it (if they want to truly go all in on Finn) is to have him lose his match with Lesnar but then win the Rumble and challenge him again at Wrestlemania with a storyline of "I've encountered this once before, now I know what to do and that strap is mine." Okay, they won't say "strap," but you know what I mean.

There is a lot of chatter going around that the Revival either asked for their release after Raw or there was some type of incident that is leading people to believe they are done with WWE.

Revival had a run of bad luck and timing with injuries when they hit the main roster.  They finally seemed back on track this summer but then were jobbed to the B-Team.  That truly felt like the point of no return.

I never thought they would translate to main roster in its current form, as much as I loved some of their NXT matches.  They are a great fit for what All Elite is aiming to do.

Dash has trademarked #FTR recently, Dawson keeps tweeting it and last night tweeted a quote from his daughter about him being home.  Now is the timing for them to get out and clear 90 days to be free for Double or Nothing.

Revival were always prime examples to me of an act that weren't going to work on the main roster but worked great in NXT. When they have time to work long matches that they've worked on for awhile then they're fantastic. But working a short tag match on Raw they don't stand out at all. They haven't shown anything on promos either and the constant injuries and twitter stuff just iced it. They'll be way better off going to AEW where they'll almost certainly be able to work the kind of matches that play to their strengths.

Mike and Maria played WWE perfectly it seems like. I'm sad they're leaving because they had the greatest fucking theme of all time.

I saw another report, unsure of the source, that although Revival and the Kanellises may be asking for their releases, WWE does not plan on entertaining such requests at this time.  So it may likely wind up like the Neville situation where they don’t want them around miserable but not letting them free.

Mike and Maria getting that WCW stay at home money.

Dolph Ziggler, who has not appeared on WWE television since his steel cage match with Drew McIntyre on New Year’s Eve, is another name that is rumored to be leaving the company soon. Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com noted that Ziggler had reportedly turned down an offer to become a producer for WWE. Johnson added that ”sources claim he remains under a WWE deal (and some there have denied he is exiting at all) but others have been some pointing to 1/31 as an exit date.”

The Lars thing is so weird to me.  If he has legit anxiety/mental health issues how did this never come up in NXT?  Debuting on the main roster in a main event WM push with John F'N Cena is a huge amount of pressure no doubt......I can see that being overwhelming for someone who's relatively green....but there were no warning signs that he wasn't ready for it?

Just kind of weird...

He probably got the Enzo and Miz treatment and was kicked out of the locker room and couldn't handle it. Most of the wrestlers he shitted on back when he was on a bodybuilding forum are RAW talent now and are back in the WWE so isn't out of the question they would do this.

A big green lummox who is slated for a Cena Wrestlemania program and the talent knows nothing about him except a messageboard account linked to him recently where he insults most of them, talks about how he loves beating off to Stephanie, and how much he hates minorities when the WWE probably has it's most diverse roster in recent memory. Doesn't matter what era they're in when it comes to the culture backstage... someone like that isn't gonna be exactly welcomed with open arms.

The Lars thing is so weird to me.  If he has legit anxiety/mental health issues how did this never come up in NXT?  Debuting on the main roster in a main event WM push with John F'N Cena is a huge amount of pressure no doubt......I can see that being overwhelming for someone who's relatively green....but there were no warning signs that he wasn't ready for it?

Just kind of weird...

Wasn't he supposedly in line for a title feud against Aleister Black at one point, and then he was mysteriously absent from a set of tapings with no explanation given?

I didn't know anything about the message board stuff.  That's freakin hilarious

Well the title feud did happen and culminated at NXT Takeover Chicago last year with Black going over. He did disappear shortly after that though.

Wow.  I don't remember that match AT ALL

That math happened but there was a weird stretch where he did disappear for a while that makes more sense with this.  I don’t remember the timeline but this seems like the second time now he’s been too incapacitated to perform.

I’m with KOAB - give Cena to EC3.  Saw some rumor with no source about EC3 getting programmed with Ambrose for Mania - at this point, that would kill him.  The promos for Cena-EX3 would be crazy entertaining if nothing else.
