Very happy I only follow on Reddit.

AEW getting the TV-MA rating, I'll probably check it out, but end up following that on Reddit too.

Foley is presenting a new title tonight on Raw. If it's another "hardcore title" color me not interested, considering their ECW type matches are garbage.

Someone on Reddit also said last night that Brock won the MITB so he could cash in on the first night of Raw, which makes total sense, and is incredibly predictable.
You mean first night of SD?

Sorry, I meant the first night of Fox show. If that's SD then yes.

Brock? Da fuq?
it makes no sense.

So basically what they did last night was say "Not listed on the card? No problem. Feel free to walk into any match and pin an opponent of your choosing like it was the 24/7 rule."

Personally, for as many big spots that happened in that match last night, for a guy to just walk in and grab the title makes no sense, and it's incredibly insulting to be asked to put your body on the line like that.

Finn seemingly had two spots that could shorten his career, and will likely go back to being a mid-carder.

Right on cue LaBar immediately started defending this nonsense. "It gets Heeeeeeeeat. Don't you see how mad everyone is? Now the briefcase holder has legit HEEEAT."

Yeah screw entertainment and putting any effort into story telling. The goal is to just piss people off and waste everyones talent. That's way easier.

It's not the heat that's necessary. I just have no interest in him cashing in and becoming a champion that barely puts his title up. I really believe the rumors that Vince doesn't care for the newer generation of NXT and Hunter hates it.

I'd have legitimately been fine had any one of them won the case last night. Now? I don't even care, that heat was a cheap pop.

Sure, it gets heat, but the heat isn't on the briefcase holder. It's on WWE and Vince. Nobody gives a **** about Brock. The heat isn't on him. People are pissed off at Vince McMahon continuing to **** over the current roster.

I think about this dril tweet almost daily, and Labar is today’s winner:

Good news: There's now a 24/7 title. While I wasn't the biggest fan of the hardcore division back in the day, I always like the concept that the title could change hands anytime and anywhere as long as you had a ref with you. Gerald Brisco pinned Crash Holly while he was sleeping once. Pete Gas and Crash Holly both won it while in the Newark Airport. One of the Godfather's hos also pinned Crash and had the title for a very brief time. There was a week's worth of house shows where the hardcore title changed hands about 20 times; on average, it had 4-5 new champions a night. With Facebook, Twitter, and the network being readily available within a few seconds, they could have it set up so they could start streaming "live" when a title defense is happening.

Bad news: Here's your new title.

That is one of the ugliest belts I've ever seen. Good lord, how hard is it to be competent?

Cheap knockoff of the hardcore title. Of course, we would never have that now.

OMG....I just watched the video. Listen to the reaction from the crowd. It's bordering between complete apathy and booing. Poor Mick.

I think fans were expecting the Hardcore Title.

He knows it too. Even Mick has the expression at the 25 second mark that says "Vince, no matter what I say, I can't save this segment."

The second-grader, who was chosen to design the championship due to a clerical error (the request was meant to go to Tommy Simpson, a 61-year-old leathersmith and metallurgist), said he is “weally pwoud” of how the belt turned out.

“It is mostly gween because I weally wove the coloh gween,” said Timmy during an exclusive interview with Kayfabe News.

“Not just any gween — barf and booger gween!” He then burst into uncontrollable giggling.

The 24/7 Championship, revealed by former sock-puppeteer Michaelangelo “Mick” Foley, features a round plate that its designer says “looks like a fwisbee.”

One of the best parts about watching the old WWF clips from the very early 90s is watching the faces of the fans that truly believed in kayfabe at the time. Watching Papa Shango and there are legitimately people that look terrified lol.

They put speakers on the side of the briefcase and Lesnar continues to use it as a boom box. I think I've turned the corner on the MITB win. Why not, they got nothing else that entertains me. This at least made me laugh

I had the opposite reaction to it. I tried to watch Raw and instead I got an hour of promos, the supposed “beast” acting like an idiot, and less than two minutes of actually wrestling that wasn’t actual wrestling since Shane was involved. **** WWE is bad right now.
