    MMA/Shoot style wrestling. Scantly clad women, Shane, can this work? Will this eventually become hour 3 of RAW?

    Nothing the WWE has tried, has worked. So I doubt this will be anything more than a temporary gimmick.
    Screw sabermetics.

    If Impact Wrestling is trolling you for putting this out, it's not going to work.

    I dont know what's worse, this, or the Antifa storyline that they are insisting is not Antifa.

    Its stupid. Its a ring with no ropes and no ref. Basically a 3 min hardcore match.

    I love MMA but I don't think I can get into "fake" MMA. Probably a pass for me unless they create some amazingly interesting story line(s).

    Vince has surrounded himself with yes men. I love Bruce Prichard but there is no way he should be leading creative. He's a fantastic producer and good at talent relations, but creative isn't his thing. He better be careful or else he might be out of a job again.

    Vince just hires people to fire them but he's either too stubborn or too old to realize the buck stops with him. Even all this changeover, the one remaining constant is Vince so who else does he really have to blame? I understand he doesn't look at that way but it becomes a problem when investors start asking about tanking ratings, poor demo numbers of younger audiences, etc.

    I think we're passed the point now of salvaging something as well. Years of bad booking have really taken their toll on WWE's eroding audience.

    I dont understand Raw Underground and this Retribution angle looks like a bunch of teenage protestors. Its a shame too because Drew is killing it as WWE champion but the other 2 and a half hours are a hard watch with few exceptions.

    The problem in WWE is Vince; the business has passed him by. The roster is loaded with talent

    In terms of Retribution, I think they aren't letting on who are the real members.

    they really wanna shock the world... let roman reigns be the leader. His reasoning is that because he wanted to keep him and his family safe the business threw him under the bus and he is sick of this ****. BOOM

    Exactly. He continues to try and force his booking ideas onto the product instead of working with the roster he has. The fans would eat up some of the sports entertainment stuff if he wasn't still stuck in the land of the giants and pushing people they have no interest in. There is no reason when he had Heyman, Bischoff and Prichard a year ago that the product couldn't be miles better, but it all comes back to Vince wanting full control.
