    If you listen to Talk is Jericho, the Roman episode, Roman talks about how when he finished up with football he and the Usos worked together breaking down furniture (I think it was furniture) for a time in Florida. Quite an interesting listen, especially with the recent news.
    They got pics of the Usos and Roman as kids together. Those 3 are tighter than gloves man. I think Roman travels with his SHIELD members on the road because of the brand split, but you know that him and his cousins are still, and will always be, tighter than gloves.

    Sorry to say it, but the Taker and Kane promo was brutal.

    Pretty much the whole show was brutal.

    Sure looks it. I just woke up and didn't watch it. What matches/segments are worth watching, if any?

    They always are. Especially Taker's. It's amazing how the smoke and mirrors of 'I will take your soul and you will rest in peace blah blah blah other goth things *lightning from the sky*' has covered his pretty ropey promo skills over the years.

    Supposedly Shane is going to be on Smackdown tonight to discuss his World Cup win. I just hope that the crowd turns on him for the farce that the tourney was, and that Shane turns heel saying that was his plan all along. That is the only way to salvage that piece of crap.

    Rumor was that they wanted to turn Shane heel as a way of boosting Smackdown ratings, so this might be exactly what they do, or they mess it all up like they usually do trying to be cute.

    RAW opens up with a tag team battle royal, and Strowman comes out and decimates everyone to call out Corbin. While I get the point, the byproduct is that Strowman (the WWE) made the entire tag division look weak.


    Also, after the Ambrose segment, Cole turns to Renee and asks her "You know Dean better than anyone...what do you think of all of this?"

    The WWE has to do one of two things with Renee:

    1. Either come right out and pull the curtain back and truly acknowledge that Dean and Renee are married and have Renee come out of the booth and be his valet, like Maryse was for the Miz.

    OR

    2. Completely ignore that they are married, and just let Renee do her job commentating.

    Because they can't play the sort of game with her. There is no way that she would never support her husband.

    I'm all for number 2. Dean's character is an outside and longer. Just doesn't gel that he would be married to someone so bright and bubbly.

    I think we'll find out in this Chronical on the weekend.

    Asked the limitations of using these performers in Total Divas and making their private life part of the on screen stuff.

    Wrong side of the ledger. At the start Gargano has a sympathetic character so the two linned up somewhat. Right now Dean is completely unsympsthetic and his values just don't align with Renee's character.

    They did acknowledge they were married, or at least then engaged when Ambrose had that feud with The Miz on Smackdown.

    Though, I'm sure the WWE were hoping we forgot.

    They've been making really weird comments about it like "you know Dean better than anyone" but not coming out with exactly what their relationship is.

    Makes me think they don't actually know how they can handle it either. Even a Renee heel turn and come as a valet wouldn't suit Dean's character who has just completely turned saying connections are what hold him back.

    This is a very awkward main event. Also, I still think the build up has been shit. Needs brand invasions. Hopefully we'll get some tomorrow.

    I hope that Vince calls an audible and allows Becky to go over Rousey. When Rousey came out in the opening segment, she was not greeted with cheers, she was greeted with Becky chants. Then when Becky attacks, the crowd loved it, then when Becky was by herself on the ramp, she was cheered again. And finally when she hit Rousey with the chair she was cheered.

    Backy can be the awesome antihero, if the WWE will let her become that. The crowd is behind her, and her character is perfect for it.

    I think it would also help Rousey, giving her a setback to overcome as opposed to just trouncing everyone which is never a way to the fans heart.

    I think they already did that at WrestleMania.

    This would indeed be a good chance to have Becky go over Rousey, but will they? I don't see it happening here.

    Well I don't think there has been a more anticipated episode of Smackdown since Daniel Bryan made his comeback.
