I have to admit I always thought the crowd chanting WAR WAR WAR was kind of not a good image for the company. The new name sucks but I can understand the change.
War Raiders was a crappy name too. I have more of an issue with their individual names being changed. We were on a roll there where WWE wasn't really hurting/changing incoming talents names.

Now we have Dijakovic's showing up.

I'm into the third hour of last night's RAW right now and this commentary team has got to change. And maybe it's unpopular to say but I don't think Renee adds much.

I tuned in just in time tonight to catch Joe vs Styles vs Rey and what a match! I’m actually kind of excited for how this episode is shaping up to be.

I'm watching RAW now and for sure Triple H didn't need to insert himself into that. I know thats nothing new.

Firefly Fun House was suitably WTF for Wyatt's return

It’s fresh and has the potential to be a real year stealing match!

I literally have no memory of Baron Corbin winning the Money In The Bank briefcase before.

TV ratings are falling through the bottom of the basement floor.

I don’t know what they can actually do to fix this.

WWE in it's current state CANT fix this. It's going to take a shakeup as massive as the Attitude era, and even then it will take them time (and they don't appear to be patient enough to allow the time needed).

The whole format is broken. The show isn't spontaneous and it isn't can't miss despite them having the advantage of being a live show.

I knew it would happen but it's sad to me how we are not even a month removed from WRESTLE-MANIA (which in my mind was a home run in every sense of the word) but somehow so many (myself included) are disenfranchised again. We are used to the post-mania drop off to begin with but man it's just bad.

I really hope AEW changes the game. I want to be "all in" (hehe) but I'm waiting to hear the details on the TV deal. Otherwise things won't truly change.

And as fucked up as it is, Vince needs to pass away for any true change to even begin in WWE. I think that's literally it.

If there's one saving grace it's that we know nothing really matters until the move to Fox in September. Any expected big changes or moves aren't going to happen until then. So what we're in right now is a total lame duck period.

So tonight’s answer to the tanking ratings is...Roman Reigns.

So okay, so Vince says there’s a wild card rule and 3 guys from Smackdown can appear on Raw each week and vice versa. So of course the same night they announce it, we get 5 guys from Smackdown appearing on Raw.

Makes sense. WWE can’t even follow their own logic.

I spent my Monday night reading that twitter thread with all the batshit Vince McMahon stories.

“I wanted to stuff her with crushed leaves.”

The bell for the first match didn't ring until 31 minutes into the show. That is a glaring problem to me.

Anybody else catch the dig by Graves at the end of the Lucha House Party match about them defeating the "single greatest sports entertainer to come out of Cincinnati, OH"?
