    I want Joe to take the title off Styles, but I’m not against the idea of Miz eventually taking the title off the babyface champion after a year of ducking Bryan and then Bryan winning the Rumble with nowhere else for Miz to run to as he has to defend the title against Bryan at WM.

    I want AJ to hold the title for a very long time and get cockier and cockier. Even saying WWE is minor league to what he is.

    I think the Daniel winning the Title of the Miz is the way to go but how does he duck him for a year.

    we all know Daniel is winning the rumble so him vs. Miz at wrestlemania would be the best payoff.

    Big Cass. Another tag team of goons to intercept Bryan. Bryan getting tied up with someone like Nakamura or Joe. It’s doable.

    Face Champion AJ apparently consists of him getting walked on by everyone for months and then getting repeatedly hit in the junk. The sooner they move on from this version of Styles, the better.

    Daniel Bryan vs Big Cass is the type of feud that happens in TEW when you book a show, and then look at the analysis and realize you didn't book either of them, so you just put them in a feud together

    I get their is a ton of money involved, but this whole GRR leaves a really sour taste in my mouth.

    I find this hilarious considering it’s a Friday afternoon. You’d think they would do it in the summer.

    its worth noting that the email I got is from WWE UK specifically, and since GRR is airing at a watchable time in the UK for once, it makes sense I guess

    Im still pissed that theres finally a good UK time PPV and im going away this weekend for the first time in forever lol

    Bit surprised it isn’t talked about more. Not just on here but in general.

    I expect shill websites like Cageside to carry Vince’s water, but IDK. I see reddit making comments about it, but no real outrage.

    They do deserve to be called on the hypocrisy to doing this male only event while pushing their women’s revolution shut.

    For sure they do. They probably get off easy with this stuff because the country is considered an "ally" despite horrible human rights violations.

    im not worried. in a country like SA, progress needs to be steady for it to be accepted

    not a few weeks ago, women were granted the right to drive and to visit sport arenas and cinemas. getting women on the card would be another nice step, but its not THAT big a deal

    anyone expecting a middle eastern country to just decide to blow open the doors for women one day is kidding themselves. it would cause more problems than good in the short term

    I wouldn’t be surprised if someone in the Saudi government had the balls to ask for the women to be “dates” at some dinner for these dirtbags.

    - Several title changes are expected at the GRR, apparently.

    - Dean Ambrose is still rehabbing his injury.

    - WWE is reportedly undecided on who's going to walk out of the GRR with the Universal Title between Lesnar and Reigns.

    - Apparently WWE has commissioned the development of women's tag titles.

    long overdue.

    they also need to add a womens mid card title (like the IC belt) to each show. It's needed for adding more value to non main event feuds as well as a way to add legitimacy to the mid card and finally its a great way to build young talent into future main eventers.

    Shouldn't.

    But WWE do a lot of things they shouldn't do. At least now they've got a slightly bigger roster due to the Rumble call ups, so they actually have bodies to maybe do something with.

    yeah I wouldnt have said it this time a year ago. I see the Womens tag division as a fluid division rather than strictly seperate from the Singles

    Ronda+Natalya? (lol)
    Alexa+Mickie
    Morgan+Logan (Ruby freebird?)
    Iconics (obviously)
    Mandy+Sonya
    Bellas maybe? doubtful but hey
    Charlotte+Becky?

    then you can still have dedicated singles going after singles titles, and the tag teams branching into singles when needed

    I figure a tag division would look a lot like that, maybe add Nia + Ember and then either Naomi + Tamina or Tamina + Lana once Tamina comes back from her injury.

    I don't think a women's tag division can really work with the roster split. If they were to utilize the whole women's roster then yeah but if Raw just tries to have a Women's tag team division, the talent for it will be really thin.

    I find that hard to believe. If reigns doesn’t win it here he has to be done as a contender for a while. But then they have no one ready to challenge Brock other than Strowman and they seem hesitant to go with him
