    I think that The Miz/Asuka pair has a great shot in winning this thing.

    If they have no intention on having Rusev do anything in terms of a championship on Smackdown, why the hell not just use this as a platform to placate the audience? He's clearly over, probably one of the most over characters on either brand, so let him go with it in a meaningless tournament. The content is more valuable for potential production value anyway.

    Definitely an interesting pairing. Already wondering if miz's mouth will cost them the victory. He's already spouting off he will do for her what he did for Daniel Bryan.

    I think they just might lose to Braun/Alexa. Braun pinning the Miz of course. That way Alexa can get one over on Asuka, without Asuka actually taking a pin.

    I would be surprised if it didn’t go this route

    Miz is the kind of heel who can still get away with showing his ass and getting embarrassed without it killing his gimmick. So this is perfect.

    I love the idea of Miz/Asuka losing to Strowman/Bliss early on. Asuka murders Bliss early on. Miz tags in, forcefully, obviously pissing Asuka off. Miz tries his hand at working over Braun. Bliss tries to bail, but Asuka chases her into the ring. We get a Braun/Asuka stare down. Asuka isn't scared, and she round kicks Braun in the chest. Miz blindsides Braun with a second-rope axe-handle. Asuka chases Bliss to the back. Meanwhile, in the ring, Miz tries for the Skull Crushing Finale, but Braun powers out and smashes Miz with the powerslam for the win.

    And then on the next RAW, Miz calls out Asuka. He blames her for the loss. He's jabbing his finger in her chest and berating her. Then she grabs Miz, takes him down with a judo throw and locks in the armbar and won't let him go until Absolution or Alex Bliss or somebody runs in to attack her.

    Nia Jax and Apollo Crews wouldn't be such a shit team if they actually did something of worth with Crews other than having him get wins over Curt Hawkins.

    So the RAW field is (almost) set:
    -Alexa & Braun
    -Asuka & Miz
    -Finn & Sasha
    -Apollo & Nia
    -Alicia & Goldust
    -Bayley & [Elias, Joe, or Jordan]

    And on SmackDown...
    -Bobby & Charlotte
    -Lana & Rusev
    -Jimmy & Naomi

    UNPAIRED: Nakamura, Zayn, [New Day member TBA]
    Becky, Carmella, Nattie

    Nakamura and Natalya would be a good pairing. Great wrestlers, unique, I'd tag them as favorites.

    Hey, to answer your question...Sometimes my gf watches Total Divas and there was an episode where Natalya hooked up her little sister with Big E.

    Me too. I think it would be a great team, and the one I would root for the most. Big fan of both.

    I am thinking Becky and Nakamura will be paired up. One member of the new day along with Nattie would be entertaining.

    They announced Bayley will team with Elias as Samoa Joe is injured? Not sure when he got injured on RAW.

    Joe got first place. Elias was the runner up so he took Joe's spot.

    My bad, didn't realize voting was only one day.

    Injured? Seems like a way for them to just slot someone else in

    Yeah I don't see where he could have gotten injured. I think a better story was that he refused to participate and team with bayley. Goes with his character

    Becky with a new day member will be good though. She will get a chance to let the fun side of herself shine which may get her over a bit.

    My question is do you have to have Facebook to watch this?

    Oh yeah, forgot about them. No, I am sticking to my original prediction of putting the gingers together. Although imagine if Kevin dressed as one of them (same ring gear) and tried to pull the switcharoo.

    Her fun side is terrible. Luckily none of these will have any build or have anything to do with what we see on the rest of WWE programming.

    I don't believe you have to have Facebook. I just went to the page without being logged in and was able to watch the vid of Natalya just fine but you never know.

    interesting first matchup. I figured we would see both those teams advance. Rusev/Lana vs Elias/Bayley is odd as well

    I like how they did the "2nd chance fan vote" thing. Wasn't expecting that. Good way to solve the problem of having 12 teams in a single elim bracket.

    I predict Elias and Bayley moving on here. Because Lana is hardly a real wrestler. Maybe Team Rusev's Wedding Day will get the fan vote back in, on the back of Rusev's popularity with that whole stupid Rusev Day thing? I could see that happening.

    Rusev Day is great and was over, then they had them lose to Breezango who've hardly wrestled thanks tothe dreaded ROLLUP OF DEATH! Ugh!

    Even if English took it, it wouldn't have been as bad but it was Rusev who took it. Big star on their hands and they've treated him like a joke for months.

    The Rusev booking is really the oddest I've seen in a while:

    1, Ziggler moves in on Lana. Who's portrayed as the face?
    2. Rusev teams with Jinder a far less superior wrestler. Who becomes champ after the split?
    3. Rusev threatens Shane on Twitter demanding a championship match. Did that go anywhere?
    4. He lost to Orton in record time. He did get a quick win back, but who won at the end of the day?
    5. Rusev Day catches fire and they face Breezango. Who wins and who takes the fall?

    Just examples off the top of my head like.

    Vince just doesn't see money in him. I disagree, think the guy could have been a huge star if they booked him strong. He was really over during his undefeated streak in 2014, he and Lana were a great pairing, he can work, he's got a good unique look, he's credible, he's also ridiculously funny. I don't know what they think he's missing. Especially with Smackdown being so thin I'd be pushing him as one of my top guys. Rusev vs. AJ sounds awesome to me.

    I'm not sure if that's entirely true. I believe Rusev was in consideration for the spot Jinder ultimately got but they decided to go with him in an attempt to tap into the market in India. They clearly were starting to plant seeds with the clips Rusev had on Smackdown, saying he wasn't coming back until he got a title shot.

    Jinder was already in the process of being pushed to the moon before the Twitter thing happened. It's just a case of them changing their mind on the fly again.

    Don't forget when Rusev feuded with Enzo and he was the one to take the pin in the blow off Tag Match.

    Of course, 6. Enzo busts into the hotel room trying to get with Lana. Who's the face?

    7. Who takes the pin in the blow-off?

    Through dedication at 3am in the morning, most likely.

    I'll personally just wait for the Network trying to avoid spoilers.

    Stone Cold Steve Austin impersonates a doctor, sneaks into a hospital, and smashes an elderly, injured Vince McMahon with a bed pan. Who's the face??

    Balor/Banks vs Nattie/Nak was quite enjoyabke. Slight taste of Balor/Nak and Banks going over Nattie was the right call.

    Christ that was cringey as fuck. The match was pretty good, but Christ. I was embarrassed to be watching that on my own, let alone with anyone else. Any non-fans clamping their eyes on that would have switched straight off. Specifically, those backstage videos. And the constant impersonating their partners thing. Bloody hell. Balor doing the Banks mannerisms etc.

    Nattie doing Nak, even worse.

    So next week we’ll have Asuka pretending to be the Miz, etc etc for the next 12 weeks. I heard Vince had little to no involvement in this. Could have fooled me.

    Was going to watch this with Mrs M. Thank God I didn’t.

    Hopefully I’m wrong and they tone down the nastiness because it has good potential this show.

    Week 2 and Raw wins again. Next week looks like another Raw win. Maybe Smackdown gets last 3 weeks of wins. Interesting to see which woman's champ loses.

    Not that great a match this week. I quite liked New Day all rocking the Carmella gear. I think these pairings are a bit weird when a good chunk of them are a heel and a face, kind of makes it tough to know how to react. Miz cuts a heel promo post match and Asuka's standing there smiling and nodding along with him being a dick and claiming he's translated and educating her on how to be a champion. She really should have been miffed by that.

    Two things for Botchamania were Cole calling Alexa "Little Swiss Miss" after their promo clip and the ref saying loud and clear to Miz near the end of the match, "Asuka's going over".

    This. I thought it was a fun match, better than last weeks. Can only see Bliss and Braun going over next week.

    Raw wins a 3rd week in a row. Can only guess Smackdown wins 3 as well and Nak returning in semis. To think Braun and Sami were feuding last year

    The Mixed Match Challenge reminds me of all the comedy bits where they play to the crowd like they did on WWE Saturday Morning Slam. It's just absolute nonsense and that's fine by me. It's different.

    Bliss and Strowman are absolutely wonderful together.

    Also, go heel Sami. "We want Strowman" ... "You're not gonna get him"

    It felt like Strowman's reaction was much more significant during this rather than Raw. Maybe I'm wrong. These are entertaining matches in different ways. I thought week 1 was in the sense of seeing the competitors actually in the ring, week 2 was the personalities, and this week was a mix of both.

    Sami's reaction after Braun threw him across the ring is amazing.

    Becky: you ok?
    Sami: give me a minute
    Becky: you ok?
    Sami: gimme two minutes
    Becky: Sami, you ok?
    Sami: give me 3 minutes

    Becky goes off to fight bliss while Sami lays on the apron and yells

    Just give me 4 minutes.

    Thier interview after the match is great. Especially when Becky breaks character when Sami keeps trying to wiggle the wwe universe into blame for thier loss.

    Really fun stuff this week. Alexa and Braun were adorable together, great chemistry, loved the impressive tandem finisher, and Braun got to show more personality than just the SMASH MONSTER stuff, their post-match interview was brilliant. Sami and Becky were loads of fun between the birthday stuff and Sami being a hilarious chickenshit.

    Fun stuff this week. Really enjoyed the back and forth antics before they really got wrestling. These matches feel kind of fresh as it seems like there's more banter and personality showing than your standard straight forward matches on the main shows, seems like everyone involved is having a good time and it add something that makes up for the actual matches being pretty standard. I could see Goldie as a manager for a solo Mandy being decent.

    It was a metaphor. Like when Tazz and Michael Cole used to say Big Show had tree trunks for legs, coconuts for hands, cinder blocks for feet, and a typewriter for a head. Mandy Rose can't make eggs on her ass, but Big Show also isn't a Transformer made from things found discarded in the woods.

    Quite a few of the teams were fun to watch. The Carmella/New Day training videos online were good. That Zayn/Lynch post match backstage interview was great as well.

    One of the main problems WWE has had for the longest time has been the separation of each division, mainly the women being distanced from the men. If WWE could find a way to organically make the roster one roster and have everybody walking down the same hallway... it would open a lot more doors. Seeing Goldy and Mandy mix it up has been great, and I would also like to see them as a duo once the whole Absolution/Riott Squad thing is over. Once Golddust retires, it would help Mandy substantially having him as her valet/manager.

    Just watched Bayley get pinned clean by Lana. Thought this place would be full of outrage.

    From what I hear/read WWE has damaged Bayley enough by now for anyone to really care. If it was 2015 Bayley that just defeated Sasha for the NXT title on the other hand..

    The Mixed Match Challenge is not really "cannon" as such so I doubt Bayley losing matters at all.

    Bayley might be the worst person on the roster. I don't like her very much. I don't like Sasha Banks either.

    I'm loving the romance angle going between Alexa and Braun. Nice to see a big table bump on what is essentially the D show. Team Little Big were my pick to win the whole thing but with Asuka in it, I can't see her taking her first loss here, so I guess her and Miz are winning...?

    But Miz can take the fall and she will be fine. Angle was considered undefeated when he lost a tag match. Still hoping for them to face the return of Nak and Nattie in the finals as I'm sure of a smackdown vs raw finals. I see Braun getting counted out when his team faces Miz and Asuka.

    So I thought if Miz took the loss it would be fine but the way they were acting last week it would seem if he takes the loss and the team loses then the streak is over. Then again this is the WWE and they can explain their way out of anything even if doesn't make sense.

    Yeah, they had that video where they were stressing that her streak is on the line in this, so if she lost, that's it broken. But they can always have Miz take the fall and do the"she's never been pinned or submitted"...but I have to say that it does make for a more uncertain final which is nice.
