    This week's episode felt like it pretty much covered most of the elements of wrestling that WWE wants to convey but in a very crisp/efficient way.

    When McGuinness said that Bugenhagen should go to Las Vegas where he belongs, is that a jab at AEW?

    This should be exactly what Adam Rose should have been.

    I get Dalton Castle vibes from him, might just be the moustache.

    That's a jab associated with being a sideshow.

    I get the vibes. He has a somewhat similar build, mustache, kind of walks to the ring all goofy like Dalton does as well. I'd love to see them as a tag-team. Never even heard of the guy until my oldest son showed me a video on IG of the guy playing Megadeth on the guitar, idk the band exactly but it was funny as hell.

    People seem to be getting a little too excited a little too quickly about Bugez if you ask me. I get a bit of Adam Rose, No Way Jose, Mojo Rawley vibes about him (not necessarily saying that in a bad way, mind you). My concern is sometimes you've got a gimmick where the crowd's really into it (like Elias getting heat during promos) but it doesn't carry over to between the bells (like the crowd not giving a shit during Elias matches). Hopefully the guy can go in the ring can keep them invested. Plus Full sail crowd versus main roster crowd and whether or not this gimmick will translate to the main roster and not fizzle out's always a concern (see: those three guys I mentioned at the start). All in all, i'm just saying I'm cautiously optimistic (and to be fair, I fucking loved when Funkasaurus Brodus Clay debuted, so who am I to talk, really...).

    I think Dream is the first instance I've seen where he turned down a challenge for the big belt in favour of the midcard one.

    Yup. Kind of purged him from my brain or he'd have been listed at the top, too.

    Oh yeah valid points all round. Early days yet.

    However I don't remember any of those blokes being over before their first match even started.

    A lot of these gimmicks are fun, but the commentators over-hype it to death and that's what kills it. Or rather one of the three commentators will shit all over it for being stupid.

    Elias has a very bland moveset that doesn’t really get a crowd excited for the main roster he needs to spice it up.

    Gulak is amazing.
