Someone working in entertainment can’t be exempt from criticism just because they have mental health issues though. When I have a shit gig, I don’t expect people to pretend it was good just because I’m on sertraline.

Attempting to humiliate a colleague in public is a bit different from just wanting someone to pretend things are good. There are more reasonable ways of dealing with someone in that situation.

He had a mild dig about the bloke not letting the other two commentators get a word in. I’ve no fondness for Corey Graves at all, but it’s such a weak thing to be outraged about.

On the other hand, it would be funny to see him get the #cancel treatment, so crack on.

I know they’re obsessed with winning that Wednesday Night War and everything in the company is currently geared towards building up NXT, but still. If I was Vince I’d be really tempted to poach Keith Lee and make him the top babyface on Raw. He’s so great.

They've gone all in on putting NXT over on Survivor Series and Raw. I doubt they're moving anyone yet. Plus it shits all over the brand split that they're supposedly taking seriously this time.

The NXT number will be very interesting this week. I think of what was advertised ahead of time, AEW looked far more interesting. But NXT was put over huge on TV and PPV this week so you'd expect a ton of curiosity views. They've got to be hoping for 1.2m minimum, surely?

With the greatest of respect intended towards your opinion, what a fucking mess the company is in for even 1 person to suggest that Keith Lee should be positioned as top babyface on RAW.

If Keith Lee moved to Raw now and became the top babyface, then we’d have until about SummerSlam before everyone starts hating him. That’s another year without Samoa Joe getting a go at being the big boy. Keith Lee is old enough that they can’t wait years and years with him, but I’d give Joe a shot at it first.

Thing is, Joe looks hard as fuck and carries himself like a star.

Keith just looks like a chubby older guy and looks as indie as they come.

As the last 30+ years of booking shows Keith Lee will either be dancing with The New Day, cucking Rusev with Lashley or become Junkyard Dog 2.0 within weeks. Vince is an old fashioned racist and he books accordingly.
