I couldn't have given any less of a poo about Shane and Miz until Fastlane. I had paid so little attention to it I just kept waiting to read 'Miz turns on Shane!" Didn't for second consider Shane being the one to turn heel. As a result i'm slightly more interested now, because their match at Mania will have a completely different dynamic to the predictable garbage I thought we would be getting.

Kofi is fortunate the New Day shtick came along. Was as memorable as Evan Bourne prior.

Nobody gets to be Steve Blackman or Al Snow or X-Pac or Ken Shamrock or Christian anymore. WWE focus almost exclusively on the upper card (and more recently the women's equivalent). Lowercarders and midcarders get zero. Jobber entrances and wrestle for the sake of wrestling. No story. No meaning.

Heath Slater could've been pre-2005 Jericho. Instead he's ******* nothing.

I'm going to have to disagree with you here---

Even pre-2005 Chris Jericho was always one of the top 6-8 guys on the roster/brand.

If we look at Raw & Smackdown now-- they still have regular (as in as often as Blackman, Al Snow, etc. got back in the Attitude Era) storylines for the top 6-8 guys on a show.

Raw-- Rollins, Reigns, Ambrose, Balor, McIntyre, Corbin, Lashley, Elias
Smackdown- Bryan, Styles, Orton, Jeff Hardy, Samoa Joe, Mysterio, Kofi, Ali

On which brand at any stage in the past few years could Heath Slater have been one of those major talents?

Some of these guys, I can't remember a full sentence of anything they've said in the last 5 years. It's big blur.

If you can’t remember a promo that Samoa Joe has done in the past 6-8 months— that’s on you, not on the WWE product.

I can think of numerous good character promos by Samoa Joe in his rivalry with Styles, with Jeff Hardy and in the lead up to the Elimination Chamber.

Rollins needs to drop the title to Drew shortly after WM. No one cares about him.

This will be the best time to build someone fresh for Universal contention up against Drew.

Should be someone from SD.

INB4 it's just Reigns.
