Have they soured on Balor after that post from Saudi? He seemed to have disappeared from TV for a while already, while he was IC champ, then comes back to lose it and now has requested time off. He could do with it to be fair. He's another guy they don't seem to know how to get the best from. Looked a million dollars at times. About three quid at others.

Wyatt looks incredible. Still no idea how he'll turn the gimmick into something watchable but he looks great and it was a hot angle.

 A far better punchline to that skit would’ve been Drake’s wife pinning him for the belt in the bed before running off with the ref.

 

Yes. This.
Renee lording it over Drake that SHE is now the champion, all the while wondering whether Drake will actually try to defeat his own wife for the title, could have created some great skits for a few weeks I reckon.

Even knowing R-Truth beat Drake Maverick in the hotel room, I just watched it on YouTube and it really felt like it was leading to Renee winning the title from him.  If I hadn't already known that wasn't what happened, I would have been watching that thinking it's really obvious Renee is about to win the title...yet it didn't happen.  That would have been great.

Re Heyman on creative. I'm sure I read somewhere him & Bischoff are properly taking over the night after Summerslam so I wouldn't expect too much until then. They are on the road to Summerslam so can't imagine too much changing.

The way they produced Bray's appearance was fantastic. That mask looks gruesome as well. I'd have shit myself if I was a kid, and he showed up on WWF.

Agreed, have just seen the clip and he looks scary as fuck.
Massive credit to the guy for reinventing himself yet again. Original 'cult leader' Bray Wyatt at the compound doing all the Manson-family stuff was awesome and this demented kiddies entertainer thing could be good too - especially if Heyman lets Bray run with it the way he did Raven in ECW.

I'm going with the 'enjoy it while it lasts' mentality at the moment though.

Vince doesn't want wrestling through the commercial breaks anymore, so instead of just doing shorter matches, they're constantly doing 2/3 falls matches and engineering it so that a pinfall takes place right before the commercial break. The rest period inbetween falls then takes place during the break. It's daft and I can imagine fucking infuriating to watch every week.

I thought it was ridiculous to watch on tv, when Ricochet initially make his entrance for the 6 man tag match, then to go to advert and upon return see his opponents the revival already in the ring, and Robert Roode finishing his entrance, before Ricochet’s partners the Uso’s made their entrance. Even before you add in the 2/3 falls nonsense, what a mess to see live.

I really hope it isn’t The Fiend vs. The Demon at Summerslam.

Sadly, this was on the cards the second it was revealed Bray had an alter ego. If they've went off Finn, I'd absolutely love it if The Fiend squashed The Demon to set up the sort of threat The Fiend is (and a great Lesnar opponent). Either way, I expect The Fiend to batter Balor quick sharp.

Anyway, the Wyatt stuff is so well done by 2019 standards, where they seem to always get it wrong. The return was another positive and another example of the production potential of WWE when they're arsed doing something a bit different (in fat, the whole Wyatt return is an example of that). My favourite bit was the way Balor's music died before all the lights shut off.

If they somehow manage to keep this going, The Fiend v Brock Lesnar could be incredible.

I honestly cannot see why on earth they had Seth win the battle royal and in such a shite way. Surely there cant be anyone interested in seeing Brock vs Seth again. It's got to the point where I have absolutely no interest whatsoever in the universal title because I have zero interest in Brock keeping the title when he's barely ever there and even less interest in Seth having it again. 

The womens 4 way was dreadful in my opinion as well and there's arguably not a less interesting challenger in the company than Natalya.

To really establish Wyatt they could do with him taking out one of the legends on Raw next week. Him taking out Austin or Hogan would be massive.

Seth isn't much better than Dolph Ziggler. Yes, flashy and athletic, but not the sort of nuance and craft a wrestler like him needs to be a viable top guy. He could, of course, overcome that if he had big time charisma, but he's such a snooze of a personality.

I mean, Brock is hardly Bret Hart either but his charisma is undeniable and he knows how to work his gimmick. A bit like Goldberg.

Seth was always going to fail because he's not good enough to overcome their guff and make it good, like a Daniel Bryan or John Cena.
