TWIW- 1/27/2020 to 2/2/2020- A DREW Era in WWE?
« on: January 27, 2020, 06:30:22 AM »
In a moderate to a major upset, after 10 years, WWE has finally put the rocket on Drew McIntyre and had him win last night's Royal Rumble.

Is this beginning of the new era in WWE or just the start of a foot note?

Who will he challenge for the World Title? It's probably Brock but I guess we don't know 100%. And we'll begin to figure out who the other number one contender will be. PLUS LANA VS LIV MORGAN ON RAW TONIGHT!

I posted about in the Old School Thread since we don't have a General WCW thread.

Edge will be on RAW tonight. Plus Seth Rollins & Buddy Murphy defend the Tag Team Titles against Samoa Joe & Kevin Owens.

Is Drew a face now or is he in a tweener situation?

Edit: I guess that is question answered.

One year I would enjoy the Rumble winner challenging for both titles in a similar fashion to the Angle/Benoit/Jericho WM16 match. I don't know why.

I guess shacking up with Charlotte didn't protect him as much as he hoped. Surprised they're keeping the belt on him though.

Riddick Moss hasn't even been on NXT recently that I remember, and suddenly he's on RAW. About as random as when Apollo Crews showed up (and I love Crews).

I am so super over the moon excited to see Edge again and I was worried Orton wasn't going to swerve us. That was a little too heartfelt at first.

I'm already seeing people whine on Twitter about Edge Vs Orton.

Do you really think Edge is going to come back from debilitating, near career ending injury that took him out of action for almost a decade and work with Seth Friggin Rollins? That didn't work out so well the last time they paired an old timer with Seth...

I screamed in horror when Seth tossed Edge into the barricades at the Rumble.

That's what I was saying in the chat. She didn't seem likable at all and her promo came off like some one was gonna come up to the main roster and upset her for the belt.

I'm not super into it but it's definitely most obvious choice for Edge's Mania opponent. They have a history together plus Orton is a safe worker. Plus Orton is in one of his very intermittent motivated moods so I think it should be a damn fine Mania program.

1. Becky got in a cheap shot on Baszler after she lost the main event at Survivor Series.

2. Baszler was one of the final two in the Rumble after going on an elimination rampage.

3. Becky comes out on Raw and says she’s run through everyone on the main roster and has no one left to face.

I don’t know if Becky-Baszler ends up being the Raw title match at WM, but they’ve certainly started putting the pieces in place for it.

Meltzer is saying that Matt Riddle's mouth got him in trouble again. That story about Lesnar confronting him at the RR that I posted about was apparently true and his Rumble appearance was short to send a message to STFU.

Riddle's kind of a dumbass and I think his character is too dorky and goofy for Vince to get or to translate to any main roster success.

Looks like it's going to be .Charlotte v Rhea at Mania. Charlotte scheduled for nxt this week

Feel like this is something that should have been put in spoiler tags.  I don’t think WWE advertised she is scheduled this week, so that could’ve been a fun surprise for her to show up during the broadcast this week unannounced.

During Charlotte's promo last night, I felt like the only interesting direction they could go in is having her challenge for the NXT Title.

2nd most would be retread of last year with her challenging Bayley and Becky in a unification match and that would just be a much less interesting/much less notable version of last year's main event.

That just makes the inevitably of Charlotte's Rumble win even more maddening.

Is NXT going to be built around Charlotte after WrestleMania? Blergh.

Maybe she’s just doing a one-off on NXT to reinforce the “Rumble winner can challenge ANY champion” stipulation and also give a quick boost to NXT? The crossovers during the Survivor Series build helped, albeit temporarily.

Lol so I guess when Brock and Riddle got into a confrontation it was about Riddle doing the shit that he did to Goldberg and now doing that to Brock, and Brock told him he would never work with him ever in his life.

Falling out of favor with Brock has got to be a deathblow in the company right? Lesnar doesn't seem to care to be buddies with a lot of the roster and does whatever he's asked but when he flat out says he's not working with you, that has to carry a lot of weight.

Brock has his crew which is full of people you wouldn’t expect at all,  but those guys are rarely all at the same show. Like Jinder, Rusev, Drew, Bray, and Cesaro.

So yeah basically at this point if you fall out with Brock, the champions on both shows, and probably Roman too (so the next champions) won’t like you very much.

Charlotte is one of Heyman's key interests and focuses on RAW, supposedly.  Guessing if they go this route, they allow Charlotte to go solidify Rhea as another star and move Charlotte onto another program.  Charlotte just hits that same sweet spot as a worker as Randy Orton does for me.  They aren't my favorite but can be entertaining and do some fun stuff in the ring but I am always least interested in them when they float around the title.  It took a while for Orton to get to that level, while Charlotte is one of the older workers in the female crop, she is still relatively early in her career and run to feel that way.  But it is probably because they tend to not like to book that many female stories at once that she feels so overexposed.  The other weird thing is with how much she is shoved down the audience's throats with her booking, she tends to be the top female with the least amount of merch - whether it is all the shirts or goodies on the WWEShop, if you look at the action figure line too, she doesn't get as many as the other female stars - and the ones she did get were peg warmers and have lesser aftermarket value than her contemporaries.

The Riddick Moss debut is strange but is something that makes the most sense for him.  Guy has been in NXT for a ridiculous amount of time and there was no place for him with that brand now being an equal brand.

He was dull and I really only remember him for the botch that caused KENTA's injury after his 15-month or whatever recovery that cost us KENTA-Ibushi being in the Dusty Classic.  They put him in that tag team with Tino from Breaking Ground that had a banger theme and was starting to pick up steam when Tino basically had to retire. 

I think around last year's Rumble he was working untelevised stuff doing something similar to Simon Dean's gimmick.  Enforcer to Mojo is an interesting role since Mojo has been fairly underused, and used against his strengths, but Moss really just feels like someone they are just throwing out there before becoming one of the logical cuts the next time they decide to cut some more talent.

I really hoped Riddle was just going for the same kind of shit Jericho was going for back in 98 or whatever when he was calling out Goldberg on TV. He just wanted to have himself get his ass kicked because the crowd would eat it up and he'd be a more over heel afterwards in spite of it. Granted, Riddle isn't a heel, but getting even a squash match against Brock can carry some weight.

Also, Drew did an interview and talked about when he found out he was going to be winning the Rumble. I don't like to hear those things right after the matches. Let him tell me in a year when he found out, or six months from now. Not 48 hours later. He should have looked that interviewer in the eye and been like "I found out I was going to win when I kicked Roman Reigns square in the jaw and tossed him out of the ring!"

The thing I never get about the stories like the Riddle one - if he really pissed everyone off and his quick appearance was a lesson, wouldn’t a better lesson be to not use him on the show?  He wasn’t advertised, there are several other NXT ups they could’ve plugged in that spot as good soldiers.  Why give him a Rumble payday?

I like Orton and Edge a lot as a WM match.  Perfect way to bring Edge back IMO.  Kind of reminds me of when he and Jericho worked WM near the end of his last run.  Tons of history between the two to mine and they have great chemistry.

I skimmed thru RAW but I watched one match in full and holyfuck was MVP and Rey a clusterfuck.  I thought it was almost all on MVP watching it on mute.  He looked really rusty and lost.  Alvarez thought he looked "good" and that Rey got his bell rung.  I think MVP being shitty (he was never really that good a decade+ ago) and Rey getting his bell rung can both be true.  MVP looking "good" is not true on any planet.

The Riddle stuff makes me wonder if he's the guy Ciampa and Gargano used to talk about having problems getting along with anyone in NXT and having to take a car alone because no one liked riding with the loudmouth.

When Edge came out at the Rumble I thought he was going to win it. God bless him for coming back but I don't see why he has to because he's done everything. Won a King of the Ring, Royal Rumble, won 40 world championships. I guess Paige is next the way she's acting on Twitter.

He came back because belts only matter to guys like Bret Hart and Hulk Hogan. The memories, being on the road with everyone else, and the money matters way more.

Honestly don't have a problem with Edge making a comeback if he feels up to it.  Modern medicine has advanced a lot in the last decade, and having listened to him in basically the decade since he's retired I don't think he wouldn't have done this if he didn't think he could do it.  And just seeing the emotion on his face when he hit the walkway to the ring, right there, I was like, "this is a dude who's coming back because he feels he didn't get to end it on his own terms, and this is super emotional for him"

And so I'm cool with it.  I kinda hope it's just a WM match with Orton so his daughters get to see him in the ring and that's basically it.  I hope.

But yeah, I cringed at every spear and bump Edge took during the Rumble because I expect him to be paralyzed on one bad bump....as he's said HUNDREDS OF TIMES over the last decade that's what he was told by the doctors when he retired......

I got over it with Bryan because, well, he's Daniel F'n Bryan......it's gonna be harder for me to watch Edge not worrying every second that something bad might happen

Hopefully on a Brock type contract, because even on a Rey deal I don't need to see Edge every week after Mania unless they have something interesting for him to do.  No shade on Edge, WWE will burn his specialness out fast as fuck
