Unfortunately, i see them being kept apart. Feeling AJ will move to Raw and Naka kept on SD. Hope I'm wrong.

I'm glad AJ didn't move, but at the same time they need to move some big names to Smackdown as they lost a lot of star power tonight.

If AJ is staying on Smackdown I can actually see the club joining him. That would be a nice heel faction again.

Kevin Owens will obviously go the other way.

I fully expect Charlotte to go to Smackdown now too, with Alexa Bliss and Mickie James now on Raw.

I feel like a member of the Shield has to go there too. Otherwise there attendances are really going to suffer.

well the superstar shake up didn't brought much to smackdown aeither, but at least i enjoye it a little more...

it seems nakamura's first feud is going to be with dolph ziggler...ok lets see what they can do...

charlotte on smackdown is bound to inrease the quality of the women's matches IMO...

KO as the main heel on smackdown is perfect...

just can't seem to relate to the continuation of orton's and wyatt's feud...

And once again the ring colapses...i think it was well done, and the fans got crazy after it happened...

And i think it was a good RAW overall...glad they still are making brawn strowman look strong...

Like jericho promo backstage...

And some matches were arranged to the Payback ppv...

Smackdown was pretty bleh. Nothing wow-ed me, although I'm curious to see where they go with the new number one contender (and his helpers), especially since Shane was glossing over the help on Talking Smack, which was odd.

I also think it's interesting that Vince has just now decided to apparently go all-in on anti-American gimmicks by really hammering home two in the same night, between Owens and Mahal. While they amuse me and make me chuckle, I hate anti-American gimmicks in general... they just make no sense for an "international company" -- but I'm curious of what all of your takes are on such a gimmick as non-Americans.

On a side note: 205 Live? I'm really interested to see where Daivari's new "Dubai prince" gimmick goes, and Mustafa Ali is starting to bring the crowd along a little more. Pretty sure having a mid-eastern heel vs. a mid-eastern face in a match might be a first in WWE...

I tend to agree but I'm hoping they go with a more Hassan-style anti-American gimmick as that was very fresh at the time rather than the typical "I hate America" gimmick.

So, WWE just announced the name for the new RAW-Exclusive PPV in July. And it's (drum roll please).................

......Great Balls of Fire.

I'm not kidding. Really hoping it's not based around a gimmick match of the same name. Might the worst PPV name I've ever heard. And in case you don't believe me, here's proof of the name: https://twitter.com/AACenter/status/857973196364029952/video/1 or http://www.wwe.com/wwe-great-balls-of-fire-ppv-dallas

So, uh....... how bout that NXT event? That might be card of the year so far, top to bottom.

It's rare that the NXT Championship match might have actually been the most uninteresting on the card. But that UK Championship match... WOW.

...also I did get faked out. Thought I was safe, and then blam-o.

At minimum, watch the UK Championship Match and then from the Tag Team Championship match (main event) through to the end of the show.

well yesterday's backlash had some suprises in my opinion...

didn't think they would have given jinder the wwe championship and didn't think they would have let samy defeat baron corbin...

the rest of the results were inside what i thought wwe would go to...

lets see if yesterday's results matter for the continuation of some of the feuds, or they are just forgetting them and moving on to the next ones...

best regards...

So my prediction from many years ago finally came true, Jinder Mahal is the WWE Champion. Woohoo! Really happy for the guy, what a good dude and worked his ass off and finally they're giving him a chance. :)

Last week, I decided to stop watching WWE. I just can't get into the current product.

On RAW, I feel like the cruiseweight division is killing the show as they don't face other people who aren't cruiserweights, unless they fancy throwing someone to Braun Strowman. Because of this though, it severely reduces the men's division, and it's probably a smaller division than the one on the Smackdown roster. Which is why I always moan about the same matches every week on the show.

Smackdown is obviously the better of the two, as the writers are a lot more creative. I honestly wouldn't expect something as good as "The Fashion Files" to appear on RAW. The sad thing is about Smackdown is that it got the worse end of the stick during the Superstar shakeup...which was expected.

I tried getting into NXT around the time of Wrestlemania and I watched every week until last week. It has a lot of potential to be better than it is. I don't like the idea of starting a rivialry on the show and not seeing it continue for another couple of weeks or so. I guess that what happens when you have a hour show, when half of it is advertisements too.

I'll get the results every now and then online and catch the highlights on Instagram, but for now I'll go back to being a casual fan, watching when only a big match that hasn't happened before comes along.
