    Did you miss his non stellar work leading TNA down the tubes? Oh I almost forgot the help he got from Bischoff doing that. So both should be on the list of who not to put in charge of a promotion.

    IMO the Jax/Rousey feud has bigger flop written all over it. Hmmm...I'm seeing a pattern here. Maybe Jax's horrible mic skills are the root cause of the flops? We'll know for sure after this Sunday.

    I agree. Alexa Bliss is still a little green in the ring. Give her time and she'll be carrying matches.

    Is it bad that Ronda Rousey has better mic skills than Nia Jax? Rowdy Ronda hasn't spoken much since her debut either LOL.

    Both have the timing of a broken watch.

    We already discussed how bad the Nia-Lousy mic skills are when Stephanie had to cut the promo for both of them a few weeks ago,

    The storyline between Jax has been awful. Especially coming off that really bad anti bullying be a star storyline. Max has basically contradicted everything they built her up as. She completely blew the intimidation segment a few weeks ago. Playing the Bully role. She should have taken notes from Asuka when she ran that segment against Aliyah with barley ring side. Also didnt make sense to claim she didnt know what the arm bar was. She's tapped to Asukas arm bar several times recently.

    Rousey has been very awkward. Whether it be on commentary. With comments like only my husband can say I'm ripe for the picking. To the sloppy arm bar last night. Which is kinda on Jax and rouses for the timing. Kind of makes sense they barred Asuka from using the arm bar as of wrestle mania . She has the best arm bar in WWE imo.

    Only thing I see saving Jax/Rousey is a cash in imo. A lot of holes in the storyline.And both are still way too green imo.

    I think they rushed Nia and bumped her up from NXT way too fast. She's still new to wrestling it wasn't long ago she was a plus size model. And it shows in the ring. She injured Bayley last year and cost Bayley her Summer Slam push. Almost killed Charlotte. Came very close to injuring Asuka. I haven't seen Jax look good in any match where she isn't fighting someone who can sell and carry her.

    As far as mic skills some are better off not talking. Ithink Rousey has a shot once she gets more work in. I agree this match looks like a major flop. Unless theirs a cash in.

    Yes. Those three letters explain everything as to why too.

    MITB was a pretty good show. Nakamura should have won the title though. Not sure how you can effectively build him up again as a main event threat when he's lost this many times. He's not like Braun who can lose out on the belt multiple times and be fine because he's fucking huge. He's more like Ziggler in that after so many losses, you just stop caring because you know it won't happen.

    I thought they made Nakamura look as strong as possible in the loss. Plus they can do AJ vs Joe and eventually AJ vs Bryan for the title. I think the right guy won. The match was fantastic. Definitely the best main roster match Nakamura's had and the best Styles match since the Cena feud.

    I hope Braun just uses the briefcase to challenge Lesnar at SS and wins clean

    Yea, you can't have him cash-in in a sneaky manner like the typical MiTB winner.... Either setup a match beforehand or have it be something along the lines of a non-title fatal four way/triple threat match (with the champ in it) where he just demolishes everyone during the match then just says 'what the hell, I'll cash in'

    I agree with this. Plus if they go with the "set up" a match route they can play up Lesnar being an absentee champ and the briefcase forcing him into the match. It's a good face/heel dynamic.
