Braun and others in WWE squashing locals

What is this all about? I remember for years people saying that WWE needed to bring back locals and have jobbers on the roster and it would help the program. So on a big ratings ploy show, what exactly did Braun Strowman throwing around Rupert Chucklenuts for 90 seconds accomplish? Seriously, I want to know.

"Strowman needed a win!"

Against a local job guy? Why?

I was also surprised they had Corey Graves mention Brandi Rhodes as that was happening. Was a blonde guy supposed to be a stand in for Cody there? WWE and AEW are so petty with each other.

"That was like Cody or Darby Allin, that is what we think of you!"

Congrats for the subliminal zingers, you dummies. You really burned 'em.

:

Edit: Where were these local guys getting smacked around any good lately? Where? The last time I remember them doing this was Shane McMahon with some Samoan chucklenuts and that happened almost an hour into the show on the Memorial Day RAW, probably going to go down as their worst RAW of the year.

Re: Braun and others in WWE squashing locals

tbh I like watching jobbers get smashed. Anything to prevent 50/50 booking

Re: Braun and others in WWE squashing locals

Like I said in the RAW thread, I just find it funny WWE thinks they have to go out and find local guys to be jobbers.

Just take a look in your locker room. Anybody you pick can get squashed by Strowman. WWE has made a roster full of geeks.

Remember, Braun was the guy who put local jobber James Ellsworth on the map...

So.. In typical WWE fashion they're hoping lightning strikes twice..

jobbers are needed in wrestling. The problem is, the jobbers today look like the world champions.


I remember a day when actual heels would squash a jobber in 20 seconds just to prove that they are superior and ready for the PPV.

Today, we get tag matches with the competitors. We already see these guys wrestle each other.

Perfect example of a jobber's importance:

Re: Braun and others in WWE squashing locals

I can't get over the fact that the Viking Raiders are doing nothing but squashing local jobbers either. Those guys are ready for the tag belts yesterday, what the fuck is WWE waiting for?

Since you missed it tonight:



Like I said, I can watch jobbers get stretchered all day, long term wise it does help build up a character too....if done right.

That jobber flips as good as Ricochet when he takes clotheslines.

One difference. Sid was a heel. Mcmahon also didn't mock and laugh at the jobber in the Sid match. Him and Hayes spent the match putting over Sid instead of cutting the other guy down

It sounded legit like Graves was making fun of the guy in the Braun's match tonight. He obviously had no business being in the ring with Braun if they weren't even going to give him a minute. Just seemed mean spirited for some reason. Hope the kid got paid well

I honestly cant lie...I had the announcing turned down because the current booth sucks so much. I can only take them so much. Sounds like paint by the numbers by Graves.
