No matter what your position is on Race realationship in this country: there is zero doubt that it is a hot button issue for a lot of Americans, and I for one appreciate that someone with the name value of Eminem would touch on this.
Ronda Rousey is reportedly closer than we think to starting her career with WWE.
According to two sources speaking with USA Today, Rousey is finalizing details of her move to WWE. The two sources, who were noted to be close to Rousey, requested anonymity because the deal has not been officially announced; WWE did not respond when contacted by USA TODAY Sports for a statement today.
Rousey’s move to WWE has long been rumored, including a speculated singles match against Charlotte Flair and a ‘Horsewomen vs Horsewomen’ match at Wrestlemania 34, and both Triple H and Stephanie McMahon have publicly stated ‘the opportunity is there’ for Rousey if she wanted to join the promotion and leave her mixed martial arts career.
Rousey has previously appeared on air in a non-wrestling capacity at Wrestlemania 34, and more recently at the WWE Mae Young Classic tapings.
With Smack-down having a PPV a week from Sunday last night show was definitely a steady paint by numbers show setting the stage for story lines going into "Clash Of Champions". Even with a complete line up there are 2 programs that have any real juice behind them. I thought last night video package for the rematch between Mahal-Styles was well done, but let's be honest the only suspense seeing if Vince will make the asinine decision of putting the title back on Jinder. While I'm not of fan programs that are heavily based on the GMs,however I am slightly intrigued at the tension that is at play between Daniel Bryan and Shane McMahon only if it leads to anything with meaning. My hesitation is that it will not lead to anything meaningful just a way to feel TV time out for a few weeks. The rest of the show was far from bad, just formulated. Enjoy
It's amazing what a Title change can do for the overall feel to the show. AJ Styles as the top champion has brought an unexplainable energy to the show; it's a foreign concept to WWE these days but when you actually push someone the fans actually like and respect; more people tend to enjoy the show. Sami Zayan heel character has been pretty well done but he's far from a better position on the card but at least he's a relevant television character. The rest of the show is currently mixed bag with championship storylines that truly make zero sense. Enjoy
The Main Event of Raw felt Attitude Era style in both the good and bad ways; there was a significant amount of chaos surrounding it which lead to a decently somewhat surprising ending to the show. I personally haven't been blown away buy Jason Jordans performances as of late; while I agree the slimy heel role he's doing better in but not much better. I wish I had more of opinion on "Woken" Matt Hardy but unfortunately I might fall into the minority who doesn't truly understand the appeal. However with that being said if the character gets over with fans I'm all for pushing him on television even more. Paige look good in her return to the ring her and Sasha had a nice solid safe match that continues to build her back up along with her cronies who's names escape me. The more intriguing aspect of Paiges return is the dichotomy between her and Asuka, while Asuka hasn't been booked perfectly she's hasn't been booked that poorly either as well. Finally another solid week for "The Monster Among Men" Braun stuck to the formula that has worked come out destroy then Roar. His pending rematch with Kane is uninteresting at best, but they have been building this program for about month so they do have to see it through.
