The fact WWE runs Smackdown house shows on Monday nights opposite of its flagship show seems a little weird to me. I guess with the invention of DVR they don’t consider Raw a must watch in the moment anymore, but it seems like running a show against Raw could potentially hurt attendance.

Oh well, we are talking about a company who has been running Braun Strowman vs Baron Corbin as its house show main events on the Raw side for the last few weeks, so I guess house shows aren’t really a priority.

Which will have the higher Wai heart rate?

  1. Baron Corbin’s match
  2. Tamina’s entrance and offense in her match
  3. Shane McMahon’s Wrestlemania punches.
  4. Braun Strowman removing Jost from the battle royal.

I’m now officially hyped for Wrestlemania!

It’s a case of running house shows on Saturday and Sunday and TV on Tuesday. Do you have the talent sit in their hotels and do nothing Monday or do a show? I think it’s minor in the big picture when you’re talking about one market in the country having a show that typically draws under 5,000 people.

Just getting to the feedback part “Curse of the good worker” hasn’t that been the Dolph Ziggler narrative.

So to clarify, the Dan Lovranski comment was a joke on WWE skirting around mentioning TNA and the implications would be you guys could talk and mention you have a past, but not mention what that past was like WWE. A swing and a miss.
