I'm also thinking that Vince could be trimming payroll and cutting costs overall to show a massive profit this year - that way, when he sells to NBC/Universal at the beginning of next year, he will get the most possible money for the company.

Absolutely. But I think you need wrestling people to run a wrestling company. Corporate execs will drop it the first time it doesn't show growth. Everyone on this board knows how wrestling is viewed in the "real world."

None make sense. Braun isn’t worth commenting on, just plain ridiculous. Aleister Black just was re-introduced. Ruby Riott was a good worker. Lana had a year-long angle of getting buried with no pay-off, and I’m shocked they’re going to let her go to AEW to be with Miro. Santana Garrett was supposed to be called up any day now. And Buddy Murphy was killing it in his last push before being dropped from TV, rumor has it because of negative Twitter reaction to the age difference between him and Rey’s daughter in that romance angle, which obviously wasn’t his fault. This is all nonsensical even by WWE standards. I’m fed up of people trying to defend them and saying they have a plan and know what they’re doing.

Vince a cold dude...signed Black's wife back to the company and then released her husband...

Ruthless aggression

I can't wait for the Braun vs Darby matches in AEW OMG SUCH A DREAM MATCH :):):):):)

Buddy Murphy and Black should go to AEW and have a 50 min epic match with the AEW tag team champs and lose to a superkick ... 

Wrestling in 2021:)

Black was blindsided: “Im gathering my thoughts as this was a complete left field for me as obviously we just started the dark father character but this was it, thank you so much WWE universe for allowing me to create and give you small bits of myself.”

Santana will be All Elite. Lana as well. If AEW could get Rowan to go alongside Braun, I could see them leading a reboot of the Dark Order in memory of their past partner.

AEW aren't gonna sign Strowman. He can't wrestle and Jim Ross is the only person there who cares how tall guys are. Rowan has been available for a long time and no one has shown any interest.

Braun would probably do great in NJPW.  They mark for huge Americans.

Time shall tell Meltzer wannabe. Not everyone on the roster needs to have five star matches and be 5 foot 6.

Right, and with enough solid workers in the roster, they can work around his size and carry him to good enough matches.

LOL @ Meltzer wannabe...
Kriss believes every match should be a 5 star 40 min classic with no rhyme or reason ..
why would AEW not want to put on Braun vs Darby match.. and have darby go over...

20 mins is fine, and you two need to work on tour fantasy booking.

Strowman had said before that the day he left WWE was the day he stopped wrestling. Let's see if he has changed his mind now.

These releases though are almost literally mindless. Riott had a ton more charisma than basically every blonde pneumatic in the women's division. The Black vignettes were compelling and dude had that aura in the ring. And Buddy Murphy basically got himself over and that's unforgiveable.

I am now genuinely wondering whether, post-covid, AEW will overtake WWE. They're getting to be the cool kids market. They could have a massive impact going across the States and they could ride that momentum.

The one advantage WWE has is strength in depth - and that's an advantage they seem hellbent on pissing away. The brand split makes zero sense. Corralling NXT away also now makes a lot less sense. But they can't integrate it with the main roster because they've forgotten the slow build. Who are going to be the WWE headliners over the next five years? Reigns, Boreton, Seaumus, Rollins, Owens, it does not exactly stir the blood, and all of them were headlining half a decade ago. I wouldn't count on Bryan being there much longer and even now they are half-pushing Cesaro ten years after he should have gone to the moon.

Talking of which, they have stars in the making in Walter, Ciampa, and Grimes, and the first two don't want the promotion and the last has been made to look a total berk. And you just know that when Grimes gets the call they're going to turn him into a hip-hop cowboy or some other mental gimmick.

If WWE combined all rosters into one, they'd have a hell of a roster and there are still tons of dream matches we haven't seen yet.  The NXT UK guys in particular are on Mars.  WALTER alone could tear the house down with fresh feuds against a dozen guys.  I could pick 2 guys out of a hat and just say let's find a way to build A.J. Styles vs. Tyler Bate to a 20-minute match at WM, and it would be fantastic.  But there's no point in even hoping for any of that because you know WWE doesn't knpw how to do it anymore.  If you have a favorite wrestler, you have to hope Vince forgets he's paying him because as soon as he remembers, he's going to bury him or release him.  That's the reality of WWE now in 2021.

The issue of course is that, even with AEW getting another program soon, they're getting too large a roster and can't keep adding WWE rejects plus developing their own relatively unknown indy talent.  As it is, they have guys like Joey Janela and J.D. Drake who had big indy followings who can barely get 5 minutes on Dynamite every 3 weeks.  So everyone keeps saying, "Sign this guy, sign that guy!"  It's not practical and it's going to cause a morale problem in their own locker room.  It sure would be nice if WWE knew what the fuck they were doing, or if ROH hadn't completely fallen off the map.

The Strowman firing is a stunner. I definitely want to learn more. The Mania feud built around Shane calling him stupid certainly seems like it was an angle meant to hurt Braun.
