Aside from the camera angles of the forklift segment I like this storyline. It's an actual professional wrestling storyline. Instead of the sports type storyline we usually get.

It just needs to be executed better.
Dude did you know they changed cars after the commercial break. They messed up this week too

Not only did they replace a crashed car with a new car, this car was apparently a different brand and make

Why was that even necessary...

I mean I like silly stuff but didn't Vince mcmahon call his own product sophisticated? So they think that kind of goofy stuff is sophisticated?

WWE producing Razzie worthy segments while Youtubers are producing better anime action scenes than Hollywood on a Youtube budget...

I wasn't paying attention. I don't go back and watch the WWE after its been finished. The only time in the past fortnight I've watched WWE repeatedly was to hear seths screams when he landed on the stretcher.

I didn't say the story was perfect but I'd rather a stupidly executed wrestling story then a WWE version of a boxing title fight I'm better than you I'll take your title story.

Compare romans and Owens storylines to seths and beckys stories and it blows them away. Due to embracing the hokey bullshit that is pro wrestling

Literally the only 2 segments I enjoyed from the YouTube highlights this week were the 24/7 stuff and the surprise Roman attacks backstage.

Do you know why?

They’re non-wrestling storyline developments.

Serious wrestling about play fighters legitimately trying to “beat” other play fighters to prove who is “better” only appeals to geeks.
You say that when the most talked about thing in wrestling in recent times was Okada-Omega I which broke the internet and had the whole industry buzzing.
The most talked about thing by whom?

I’ll tell you.

The geek audience they have left.

WWE legends and outlets that normally wouldn't cover NJPW were talking about it..

So?

It’s wrestling.

You’re thinking under the assumption these should be serious and sophisticated, simulated fights.

Re: Bah Gawd Rowan is the mystery driver!!

It be a good thing to split Bryan away from Rowan, you can have heels just say "that's too far for even me" and let Bryan go his own way. WWE are lacking giant evil heels and a feud with Reigns could be a nice rub for Rowan. Bryan's given Rowan a nice boost in his career, he can move on without having to turn Bryan face.
