    Yikes, that's scary. Hope it's nothing serious/lingering.

    Was JoJo in the accident too? I never noticed her on Raw either, or maybe they are allowing her to be with Bray after the accident? I hope injuries are minor for Bray, sounds like a scary situation.

    That was my thought, hopefully no mention of her in the press release is a good thing.

    WWE have posted that it's an MCL sprain in her left knee.

    Probably out of action for a month or so.

    Read an article where Jim Ross says using the off hand to slap and simulate noise impact is losing its luster because it is overused and I have to agree with him. It’s being way overdone nowadays.

    If they booked them as invaders that would first target former BC members, that could be great.

    Kenny takes the title from AJ at some point, Cody gets jealous... so easy to book.

    They won't sign though, they know how badly they would be used.

    They could target the New Day as well, since they've already had interaction at E3.

    They would also be a perfect foe for the Shield.

    I hope they stay away, honestly. As much as I'd mark for Omega in WWE, I'll be disappointed a few weeks later because they'd **** everything up.

    Literally everyone does it, and nobody is subtle about it anymore. Really affects matches negatively.

    That's a big indie thing. I think it's just more noticeable because crowds are dead on TV. You don't need to do it in front of dead crowds, it works to the opposite effect.

    There are also a lot of performers that don't even attempt to hide it, which makes it even more cringe worthy.

    Yep this goes to the same idea of NXT call ups. Let them put on 5 star matches all over the planet from NXT to NJPW to All-In. Coming to the WWE and being watered down wont' do anything.

    Now... if WWE went all-in themselves and did an invasion that wasn't garbage. Watch the hell out.
