A little pipe bomb from KO reinvigorated my interest in him that's for sure, He's perfect foil for Authority figures.

Re: Kevin Owens as the Anti Authority Figure Looks Good

I mean, it all looks good now. But KO is just going to get jobbed to Shane in the end so I'm not excited for this at all.

Re: Kevin Owens as the Anti Authority Figure Looks Good

We've seen this a billion times and people still dumb enough to get worked and buy into it.

It's laughable people get excited for these works in 2019.

It felt meh to me.

Problem is that this is the exact copy of Austin vs Vince except neither Shane nor KO as as good as Austin or Vince . KO using the stunner is not helping the copycat case as every time I see him using it vs Shane all I can think of is comparison to Austin vs Vince.

But hey if the majority of the crowd loves it than I guess it’s good enough

Re: Kevin Owens as the Anti Authority Figure Looks Good

2nd week in a row Kevin Owens has been AMAZING. This role fits him perfect. I mean, no way he wins the feud against Shane, but at least he's doing something entertaining.

What should happen: Samoa Joe beats Kofi Kingston for the WWE Championship and runs through everyone for a few months. KO beats Shane and wins the belt from Joe.

What will happen: Kofi will beat Joe, Shane will beat KO with the help of Drew, Ziggler and Elias (or fuck it, maybe clean, they certainly can do it), Shane wins the belt from Kingston, Roman beats Shane for the belt.

It's funny that is was during his feud with KO when Shane became the SmackDown main focus; he was the last SD member to be eliminated in the 2017 Survivor Series match (a performance that he repeated the year after) and ultimately won his feud against KO at WrestleMania. Many people were saying that Shane's actions were heelish and I thought so too, so now KO, who was officially the bad dude back then, had the balls to go against Shane and become a hero. This can be a great storyline and I really hope KO will be the one to put Shane in his place.

Oh, and SZ allying himself with Shane would be exciting. SZ as the one who blames the fans and KO as the one who blames Shane.
Exactly. He was a total asshole during that time, to the point that he became my most hated McMahon, and I never hated Shane before, never minded him, sometimes even liked him. But that feud changed everything. Really glad KO and SZ can claim they were right the whole time. They were also right about Daniel Bryan, lol.

KO and Sami always hated Shane. They tried to reason with him recently, but he screwed them too. So yeah, it makes perfect sense, gotta give them some credit for this storyline continuity.

I wouldn't put SZ against KO though, let him do his own thing on Raw. I don't want him as another Shane's puppy.

It's laughable you get excited for the club work in 2019.

On topic as long as it's entertaining I'm good.

You're perfect, yes, it's true. But without me you're only you

It's Bischoff and I doubt he's changed much.

WCW = Rested his laurels on OVER 9000 factions squashing the roster
TNA = Rested his laurels on OVER 9000 factions squashing the roster

I know Vince has final say but I would put good money on you seeing YET ANOTHER Authority Figures type faction destroying the entire roster on Smackdown. He's probably already trying to suck Vinces dick to bring in Hogan and Nash to takeover Smackdown and reveal John Cena as the 3rd Man. Hollywood Cena going heel brothER!

Re: Kevin Owens as the Anti Authority Figure Looks Good

This feels overdone. Each time they roll out the 'pipe bomb' anti-authority gimmick, it gets weaker and weaker.

I love KO. I love rebel characters. But WWE throws these characters out there every year because their product is fucking trash, bury their product in a promo, then goes nowhere. Rinse and repeat.

Not sold yet. They are going to have to push KO to the moon, and consistent.

I'm realistic of how well this (Club return) will be done, I'm not going to be disappointed if they bomb because I expect them to.

Worked "shoots" got tired long back. They've done it to death, and throwing out names for cheap pops and heat is weak.
