Still a horrible looking belt. I didn't like the cena belt either. I'm generally big on personal belts myself.

I didn't mind Austin's Smoking Skull belt but I guess that has a lot to do with the fact that only Austin held that particular belt and it wasn't on TV for that long.



Thank fu** that this personal belt was never seen on TV... :tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy:

Yes Austin's is the exception and I'll give bryans a pass too. Hopefully never happens anywhere else but wwe from now on.

you can see the difference with Hager/Swagger as to what a difference a strong booking makes. In the WWE he had the tools but never really had the support behind him. Now he has the support he looks more confident and the role he is in, makes you realise at how under rated he was in WWE.
Is it really fair to make a judgment on the way Hager is being booked until he's actually had a match within the past year??

The way he is currently being portrayed as a bad arse/ body guard without having a match so far, is way better booking than what he was getting in WWE. Cesaro in WWE should follow Harper (Brodie Lee) and The Revival out the door once his contract ends. Cesaro now is in the same place that Swagger was, that’s to get other talent over, while putting himself down.

Cesaro, Harper and Revival will all do really well in AEW.

Shame they don’t do away with shitty themed PPV’s like TLC and actually do a proper Starrcade PPV in December. Have it the southern states every year.
worse PPV’s are named after a specific match type. Royal Rumble and Survivor series only happens once a year, so you can understand them too standing out. Elimination chamber wasn’t bad either, as it had #1 contenders matches ect. Hell in a cell and TLC most of the time there is no need for the match, other than the name of the PPV demanding one.

Crowds in Chicago this past week:
Smackdown- 7,800
NXT Takeover- 10,500
Survivor Series- 11,500
Raw- 7,200
AEW Dynamite- 6,100
Got a capacity on the venues all these were held at?
Allstate Arena held Smackdown, Takeover, Survivor Series & Raw--- according to reports a "sell out" was 11,500; but the same venue has previously held up to 17k in the past (Wrestlemania 22).

The Sears Centre which held AEW Dynamite got 10,500 for both All In & All Out across the past two years.

One thing I wish WWE would do is just pull the trigger on blokes like Owens and Rusev and make them the champs. They're clearly the most over acts in the company at the moment, so why waste so much time ******* around with it? I'd honestly have one of those guys win the rumble and go over Lesnar at Mania. They're established good wrestlers who are entertaining. Pull the ******* trigger while they're hot.

Vince too obsessed with control to let it happen.
