Vince McMahon is back to make WWE awesome again

first hour of the week Raw was commercial-free and featured two minutes of actual wrestling. brock lesnar appeared in both opening and closing segments, opposing Roman Reigns (if only for a moment at the end), culminating in a pointless heel turn. Then there was a re-telecast of a women’s tag match that originally took place on the night. All this amid reports of sudden changes being made. It Sure Felt Like Vince McMahon Was Back on Creative Raw After Frenzy, there is supposedly an annual tentpole show that resets the direction of the on-screen company for the next few months, if not the entire year.

Found out…

If you enjoyed the company’s brief break from booking Vince, which at least indicated to be logical and introduce new faces, it’s over. You’re getting the same distilled crap that essentially drove the competition straight down the drain. no wonder there are thunder already Some stars are looking at the exit door.

When we look back on all this, maybe 137 years after Vince actually died, we Raw One of the funniest moments in TV history is about to happen on Monday. As Triple H was in the ring to tell every fan that WWE was “going nowhere” after the sale to Endeavor, and things would get brighter and better, his father-in-law was actively stealing his chair in gorilla position. ! Trips had a job when he went to the ring to start the show, and when he came back it was very different.

more curious about Because there’s a law firm sniffing out whether Vince is really short changed company and shareholders At WWE Sales. You have to hop a few lily pads to conclude that Vince just took the offer that would keep him in charge… but I’m going to go ahead and do it anyway because I’m an asshole and it’s funny Stool.

Second, AEW went ahead and had their own version Raw after frenzy, filling ammo with surprises and new directions and kinds of stories Raw Used to happen after the frenzy. Particularly poignant was the fact that Jay White, recently leaving the NJPW and warmly Rumored to be coveted by Triple H And close to signing for WWE, arrived at AEW last night. And FTR, also rumored to be heavily wanted in New York with their contracts reportedly up for grabs this month by HHH, became Tag Team Champions for the second time, meaning they aren’t going anywhere. These could all be isolated incidents – White already had a relationship with AEW from last year’s Forbidden Door build, and FTR will yearn for the freedom that only AEW will provide him and WWE will not. And yet one cannot ignore the ongoing turmoil in WWE and at least wonder if both White and FTR decided they would be better off staying away from it all. Especially the latter, who perished under McMahon’s reign when he was in WWE and know his general aversion to tag team wrestling overall (enjoy the weak Sami and KO runs, of course).

a bold asshole is the worst kind

Endeavor isn’t exactly known for paying someone huge or being afraid to downsize, and now with Vince, a keen scythe-driver, running things back, talent is His position within the company makes sense. Especially wrestlers who have already been fired once by Vince and brought back by Triple H. morale is already falling through the floor are happening in a big way as they did last year, and if it comes out that Vince is in the running it’s probably going to get worse smack down Last night, either backstage in Portland or remotely.

None of this matters to the people who matter most to the company, nor to those who run Endeavor. WWE has a built-in audience and followers, and whatever shareholders may have been shortchanged by Vince (if they were at all) they still collected a total of $9 billion from the deal – and half of that goes to Vince, but then Too. It’s a guaranteed product, and no matter how creative Vince works at the core of the Earth, there’s a known floor. Especially with a new round of TV rights talks set to begin this summer. media companies can talk a big game about not associating with McMahon, but there is such a dearth of live programming that people actually watch, and Raw And smack down There are two of them, so the network will come running.

And don’t be fooled, Vince will turn the product into shit again. She is even more excited to have her job back after being forced into temporary exile due to sexual misconduct allegations involving several female employees. Now who can say no to that? His daughter isn’t even around anymore, and he castrated his son-in-law in front of everyone. It only took a few minutes for them to bring Lesnar back into the main event scene. The repetition, the blandness, the uniformity, the illogical nature of one thing to another, it’s all coming back. You saw it on Monday. Shows full of 12-18 minute matches at best? Dust in the air, folks. But you get Drew McIntyre wrestling Elias for six straight weeks and you love it.

But go ahead, let me tell you again how this all bodes better for Cody Rhodes at SummerSlam. really, i am Die to hear it.
