It's Martin Luther King Day to kick off a big wrestling week - which means Vince will be airing a big tribute to MLK

RAW's major announced match for tonight is Ronda Rousey and Natalya taking on Sasha Banks and Bayley before the Women's Championship showdown this Sunday at the Rumble

Smackdown has already announced the single named Andrade taking on Rey Mysterio in 2 out of 3 falls action as well as Mustafa Ali going one on one with Samoa Joe and The Miz taking on Cesaro

Saturday is a Takeover with a loaded card and the Royal Rumble Sunday, not accounting for the variety of other WWE Network shows taking place throughout the week

Super hyped for Smackdown. Rey/Andrade is going to be fantastic. They're also doing AJ/Daniel in a debate moderated by Vince which should be hilarious.

I forgot the debate and Mandy Rose vs Naomi.

So Smackdown announces almost the wholenshow which equates to a stacked and built card.  RAW may have some fart jokes.

Didn't get to watch RAW yet but according to Reddit this set up Hawkins and Ryder becoming tag champions at Wrestlemania and Sasha got naked so it sounds like I missed it all

AJ Styles went on Steven Crowder's show and talked about how he didn't what the Gillette ad was going for and being concerned to speak his mind on Twitter cause he's afraid the PC crowd will go after.

Now I really want to see D-Bry kick him in the face on Sunday.

And in interest of fairness, if they're going to allow AJ Styles to be interviewed by Steven Crowder, they should let Daniel Bryan be interviewed on Democracy Now

AJ Styles has some trash opinions. I would be shocked into awe if he ever said anything remotely progressive tbh. At least The Undertaker has been silent all these years.

Yeah, AJ might be the best wrestler in the world but he's one of the more bigoted competitors outside the ring with his flat earth believing/anti-Muslim views. I'm surprised the (seemingly) liberal Elite got along with him so well but I get getting along with someone as long as you don't discuss politics.

lmao oh AJ and his fragile masculinity

Edit:

Quote
“When I watched the commercial I was trying to understand who they were talking to,” Styles questioned. “I have a wife, and a daughter … and 3 boys … but, I think about my daughter. So I had to find out what this was. What was so toxic. And apparently, from what I’m understanding, it was just … being mean to women?”

AJ and host Steven Crowder then griped about how the idea of toxic masculinity is hard to follow, as Styles added: “I just didn’t know who they were talking to and it kinda made me angry.”

“I feel like my job as a man is to take care of women,” the WWE star continued. “I’m gonna stand up for my wife. I’m supposed to be a provider. I’m gonna take care of her. I’m gonna protect her. Same thing with my daughter. She’s only 4, but as she gets older she’s gonna want to date. I expect this guy to come over, pick my daughter up, open the door for her. Things I think a man should do.”

Then, to prove a point about obscene “locker room talk” being overblown, the host asked AJ if the conversation of rape is ever brought up in the WWE locker room. Styles obviously answers no.

The topic of the Gillette commercial was touched upon once again later in the interview. Styles pointed to one part of the ad where a boss puts his hands on a female employee’s shoulder and corrects what she’s saying. “Well what did she say before?! Maybe he’s sticking up for her? Maybe she did say something that was wrong …”

“I didn’t even know about this toxic stuff going on,” AJ additionally explained. “I’m a man. I’ve got testosterone going through my body. We are different than women. It’s just the way it is and some men will never change.”

Holy fuck, what a dumbass this guy is.

For those that don't know who Steven Crowder is (I only learned of him recently), this is the kind of merch he peddles on his website:

Yeah that's how I am. I watch videos where he's showing off his big retro video game collection and I almost like him, then I remember how awful his opinions are.

Fun fact: Crowder used to work for Fox News, then got fired when video of him harassing a union worker led to him getting punched in the face by said worker. Also, almost everyone who worked at the network found him obnoxious, and even Hannity dumped on him by saying he's not funny.

Good chance they aren't having the problems with Revival wanting out that they currently are if they were on Smackdown having matches with New Day, The Bar, and the Usos.  A lot of guys are/would be definitely better off on Smackdown.

They would. It's the lack of emphasis on the division as a whole and the shortness of the matches that seems to be the gripe.

Those guys have had long matches and lots of screentime in the past.  Bludgeons too before they got hurt.

that was still a motyc with the ending. They actually remembered they had a rumble match to build at the end of the day and it leaves room for more and still gave rey ability to say he had andrade beat.

That was a fine last hour of wrestling.  It still seems like the crowd isn't taking to Ali, which is a damn shame.  We can't blame the booking for that.

Under the radar, WWE announced an injury for Cena the other day.  The injury is a work to take him out of the Rumble as reports say he never was going to work the Rumble but was supposed to get taken out by Lars Sullivan in storyline.

So, they spent weeks promoting Lesnar-Strowman with no intention of actually delivering it, and also Cena in the Rumble even though that was never the plan either.

You can put your company on the stock exchange. You can sign billion dollar TV deals with major networks. You can launch your own over-the-top subscription service that becomes a model for the industry. But in the end, let there be no doubt: Carnies gonna carny.

I feel like Sonjay was rumored for the CWC or something to do with the Cruiserweights at some point.  That's probably a fine plan.

Abyss in 2019?  I have no idea what they would even do with him at this point.
