On Bayley, I agree on not booing someone that is hurt but I think she was mixing her character, which isn't very over at the moment in my opinion, with the news about the injury. In other words, she was trying to have her cake and eat it too and the WWE needs to be paying attention.Advertisement

Aug 8, 17, 01:09 PM #18They'll very likely add a Raw Tag Title match, I'm assuming Cesaro & Sheamus vs. Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose.
I also look for a John Cena/Baron Corbin matchup.
Not sure if they'll have The Miz defend the Intercontinental title or not. The card is already really crowded.
Aug 8, 17, 01:12 PM #19Good accounting RP and I am hoping for a Rollins/Ambrose Reunion. They sure have teased us enough.

But that also means nothing for Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch, Carmella, & the loser of Sasha/Nia on the female side. That also means nothing for The Hardy Boyz, Gallows & Anderson, Breezango, Sami Zayn, Mike Kanellis, & Elias Samson on the male side.
Aug 8, 17, 01:37 PM #23This doesn't have much to do with Summer Slam, but it does the lead-up to it.
According to numerous online sources, the original ending to the John Cena/Shinsuke Nakamura match was for Nakamura to win as a result of Baron Corbin's interference. Corbin was supposedly going to attack Nakamura, but inadvertently hit Cena, thereby costing him the victory. But when Cena saw that this was the planned finish, he pushed for Nakamura to win with a clean pin.
If true, that's good work by John Cena.

And this shows us the problem the WWE is up against now, with two separate brands, NXT, Live 205, and whatever else they throw at us they are over-saturated.
I just had this discussion last night with another wrestling fan and the bottom line is there is too much to keep up with now which means WWE will be the loser when they go up against other quality sports/entertainment. At least at my place that's how it will roll.

What has Nakamura done? I guess he won a feud with a recycled Dolph Ziggler.
I hate to be so negative but I think the WWE is trying to serve too many masters and it is hurting their product.

Oversaturation is WWE's biggest problem, no doubt. They have a ton of talent right now, but even that doesn't justify how much content we are expected to consume.
Part of the reason NXT is so popular is because less is more.

I think the biggest and dumbest push was Jinder Mahal's. He went from glorified jobber to number one contender to world champion in a month or less.
I do agree that WWE is trying to serve too many masters. We probably just disagree on the specifics of that.
