We stand corrected


I am here for all the hours of content John and Wai want to produce, but until Raw and Smackdown get a bit better, OR we are post-Rumble and heading to Mania season, I don’t mind the combined shows that run through the main talking points for both Raw and SD.

With so much news taking place in New Japan and AEW and Free Agent signings - expand the Double Shot and roll with that as the Monday show for the time being. Just a thought.

Baby Big E was horrendous on the level of Drake Maverick pissing himself.

I don’t know why these review shows haven’t been calling out Vince level booking and humor with this one but it was terrible. This was meant to be a serious Rumble hype push and potential Wrestlemania promo. Way to absolutely bury your talents credibility.

Much like Drake Maverick Pee jokes…Baby Big E is a strong contender for worst segment of the year and we only just started.
