Re: New CW Division Show: 205 Live premieres Nov. 29 on WWE Network

So are they pulling the cw from Raw now? And why not put it on after NXT like the classic was?

Re: New CW Division Show: 205 Live premieres Nov. 29 on WWE Network

So is it confirmed that they are going to film in the same arena's they have Smackdown?

That kinda doesn't make sense on many levels.

MAybe that is the idea. People come down to fill in the gaps and those who want to stay stick around to show them support. They are in a place where a bunch of people don't car about them on Raw because they lack characters and can only wrestle good, and that problem is that it desribes everyone on Raw but Jericho, New Day, Charlotte, and Sasha.

I have read people are mad about staying a hour later, but if I'm Vince I say tough shit as the fact is the other half the roster on the Red side already works that like with Superstars and the 3 hour Raw plus 10-15 min over run. They are balancing the tapings time wise by doing this actually.

Raw - Superstars (taped during preshow), 3 hr Raw, over run and raw talk
SDL - Main Event (taped during preshow), 2 hr SDL, 205 Live, Talking Smack

They are basically evening out the card for the ticket price. As t stands now the though may also be that anyone who chooses to stay audience wise will care about the CWC guys themselves. They should have never been presented as just part of Raw by having matches, as they always should have been segmented off liek giving them the first hour.

The thing I think that quietly comes from this is that they essentially play the role of the old ECW. I also hope they just add trios titles to the show with how many 6 man tags we have seen as that present something totally different from the Raw/SD tag scene and makes them have a unique element if their titles are the CW and Trios belt. It almost writes itself to have Alexander, Swan, and Dorado as trips champs

I will also say Raw has suffered from WWE needing to let Tozawa, Metallik, Dar, and Gallagher finish dates everywhere they had already planned. They are all best suited as singles guys and can be presented as that.

Trios
- Swan, Alexander, Dorado
- Neese, Gulak, Neville
- Bollywood Boys and Lun
- Mulata, Ali, and Daivari

Singles
- TJP
- Kendrick
- Gallagher
- Tozawa
- Metalik
- Dar

Re: New CW Division Show: 205 Live premieres Nov. 29 on WWE Network

This is retarded and a transparent effort by Vince McMahon and Stephanie to bury Smackdown since Smackdown is decimating Raw.

-The Cruiserweights should have never been on Raw to begin with
-They should be wrestling at Full Sail with no WWE Heavyweight style imposed on them
- 205 Live should air after NXT

It's quite evident someone wants to bury Smackdown and Talking Smack for being the better product

Re: New CW Division Show: 205 Live premieres Nov. 29 on WWE Network

Claiming the Cruiserweights are exclusive to Raw and then having them on after SmackDown is very contradictory. WWE has spent several weeks claiming that the Cruiserweights are exclusive to Raw, only to now promote them as the late night show of wrestling?

Progression? more like retrogression.

I wouldn't be against this new show if it was on a different day. Whenever they have something good in Talking Smack they just have to somehow ruin it. If TS ends up a more scripted show due to it being taped it'll be no different to Raw Talk.

I don't think this is an effort to sabotage Smackdown at all. But I do think it's an attempt to control Talking Smack, which I imagine will no longer be live. I bet shit like earpieces falling out, mics not working and critical "shoot" elements piss off Vince like hell. Going back an hour allows them to tape the show, eliminate mishaps, and edit out D-Bry's critical comments about Raw etc.

Well at least this means the women's division may be getting their exclusive show as well soon.

Which is someone that should have happened LONG ago.

This is the million dollar question, and frankly, spoils the TBK/Kalisto match

Where they film is crucial

205 live is gonna be . . . live, which means they must film at after smackdown AT the smackdown location. If the CW's are at the Raw location (sometimes a totally different part of the country, or even a different country!), the logistics alone are overwhelming. You'd have to fly them from the Raw location to the Smackdown location in just one day, its an extra flight for a one hour show? Every week? that's stupid

Like everyone said - move the CW roster to smackdown, film/broadcast the show right afterward

Also:
Corey Graves being on both Raw and this show also seems stupidly more difficult than it needs to be. He also would have to travel from Raw to the smackdown/205 location from Monday to Tues. Send JBL or Otunga to Raw and put Graves/Phillips/Mauro on the smackdown show

EDIT:
This article says the show will be filmed at the Smackdown location but the CW will remain on raw

If true, WWE must like throwing money away
