Why are these guys representing those specific brands? The Universal title has never been labelled the “Raw Universal Title”, so it should be open to be on both shows, like the WWE Title should. So no reason for Rollins to represent Raw. Where the hell do they get Roman representing SD from? Are these 2 undraftable now?
I doubt they are undraftable, but they needed a way to decide first pick (could have done coin toss) and probably went well the current champions should fight, oh but Brock cannot or won’t do it…oh let’s use Román he’s on Smackdown. Honestly should have done Becky vs Charlotte for the first pick, as those championships are actually branded. But they may not want to do that match right now either? Tag champs?
Right they don’t even know which brand they are on. So Seth wins and Raw drafts Brock and then he gets moved to Smackdown with the second pick? I mean I assume title holders will all be top picks so that your brand gets a belt. If they had said champions will stick with the brand at least a champion vs champion match could have some “brand” loyalty angle, but if they can be moved what is the incentive to win?
Darby Allin went to a draw with the number 1 contender. Havoc won a match against Darby(who went to a draw with the #1 contender) Thus, both make sense.
Lucha Brothers & SCU brawled, because both are in a tag team tournament and both teams think they are the best, so they fought, VERY simple.
Spears & Mox fought, because it was a match that was just put together. Not every single match has to have a reason behind it. They are not representing 2 different brands on what is supposed to be a huge company splitting draft.
Britt & Riho teamed up, because they also teamed up earlier in the year when Bea & Britt first got into it.
This is all really, really simple stuff to understand. It is nothing like 2 random guys being chosen for no reason to represent specific brands.
I don’t disagree with you on any of that. I’m not sure why AEW having logic holes makes it ok for WWE to do the same.
Some of the stuff you mention for AEW is just good booking. You don’t throw PAC in a week 3 title match because he is a star. You put the midcard guy in there because he is going to lose. I wasn’t a huge fan of the Cody and Jericho booking in these matches to start with.
But I wouldn’t see any of what you just mentioned and say it is a big match. I don’t have a problem with Rollins vs Reigns but it isn’t a big match (even if maybe it should be) it is just a match.
I also have more issue if you do this kind of match with 2 guys that could be well served with a real feud instead of a throw away match.
Well Meltzer would disagree with you. He says Darby and Jimmy aren’t number one contenders based on records. So either you know more than him or you are just explaining stuff that makes no sense.
Pac has beaten Omega and Paige. How is he not a better contender than a guy who lost at All Out?
also Mox and Speaes has no build up. It was just a stupid match thrown together.
So is this.
Reigns is biggest name on Smackdown. Rollins biggest name on Raw. So let them fight and see what happens. At least they have some backstory. If you can tolerate Mox and Spears with no build up then tolerate this and see what happens
If Dave Meltzer told you to jump off a bridge, would you do it? This guy gets this wrong weekly. Its clear, to any person with even half of a brain, what had happened in AEW up until this point. Yes, Pac has a better record. Yes, he should probably get a title shot. He’s also a heel and the champion is a heel and it doesnt make a good story.
Why are you stuck on this Moxley/Spears match? Stupid question, you’re a troll, thats why. But it was not promoted as 2 guys fighting for their brands. There is no Smackdown or Raw superstars as of right now. Why is Roman then representing Smackdown? Who chose that? Who picked Rollins on Raw? Why would those 2, not then be the #1 pick for that brand they just competed for? What kind of stupidity is it for Roman to be chose before Brock Lesnar?
