Re: Did Lacey and Corbin get punished?

It does seem tailor made for Corbin, but he already had the MITB, the constable, beating Angle etc etc. It’s the same stique in a different form. I’d rather they properly repackage him, maybe give him AOP or something. I’m not a massive fan of his or anything but I have grown to like him and he’s better than being stuck in his waistcoat and slacks.

Lacey seems another of Vince’s toys he fast tracked and got bored of when she wasn’t as good as he built her up to be in his head. She needs the time in NXT to find her feet as she was no where near ready. That’s not a bad thing, two/three years down the line she could become what Vince wanted.

Re: Did Lacey and Corbin get punished?

I think with Lacey, she's nowhere near ready for the spot Vince pushed her in. She has the look he loves in his top women stars but she still needs a ton of work put into her in ring work. Maybe a repackage and a few months training and on the road might be what she needs. For now lower card is where is best for her.

For Corbin, he seems to be loved by Vince and HHH but just has go away heat from the fans. He should be a main eventer with his look but has the talent as a solid mid carder. I'm sure Vince will push him again sometime this year.

I think Corbin will get more chances then Lacey will.

Re: Did Lacey and Corbin get punished?

If they're bored with Lacey (and there's absolutely no guarantee that is even the case as there were many brief periods where we "thought" they were finally done with Alexa and Charlotte), I can guarantee it almost has nothing to do with ring work. Vince has never shown any problem with pushing people who were godawful in the ring, as long as he liked them enough. If they have cooled off on Lacey it most definitely has to do with something else other than her ring work. Vince has been turning a blind eye to Alexa's godawful midget wrestling style and "I'll sell early to avoid this hit from 10 feet away" for YEARS.

But again, 2-3 weeks off TV is NOTHING. There's every bit the possibility Lacey is in some major program again 2 months from now.

Corbin winning KOTR is a little far fetched imo and even if he does what does that enable him outside of an insufferable Heel Midcard gimmick which is now common for those who win the tournament.

Lacey was filler.

Corbin was the bigger problem. You can't put mid-card talent like him all over the show. The fanbase isn't going to bother with it. You got to match up your top talent if the show is going to have a strong cornerstone. Corbin isn't on that level.

I hope so. Lacy got called up too early and Corbin is boring.

Corbin has had one of the busiest schedules on the roster over the last year, if not the busiest. WWE probably just wanted to lighten his workload for a while.


Yeah he had the busiest. This year he’s been the workhorse. Has wrestled more matches then anyone on the roster.


Miss ya big daddy Corbs. Go win this tournament now.

This is false, completely false.

I like Corbin, but can admit in any other Era his ceiling would be Upper Midcard, but in this Era he is more than good enough. Look at the recent Main Event scene in WWE; Rollins, Ziggler, Kofi, Owens. They're all midcard talent. Rollins in particular should not be anywhere near the Main Event. But if a guy as untalented as Seth can be a consistent long term Main Eventer in this Era, then literally anyone can.

In the last Talk is Jericho podcast, he briefly mentioned Lacey being MIA since ER. He was saying it was very suspicious and that maybe 'someone got too big for their britches.' That someone being Lacey. So, it is possible she is being punished. Jericho knows the business and knows Vince, so his opinion is worth considering.
