WWE's Crowd Returning Report Card : IWC is Irate. Veteran Fan Favorites Flourish

NXT is officially non-factor and the stars made presented inferior and thrown to the proverbial Lions Den. I understand the thinking, its how to make the fans put them over. NXT is an inferior product in the eyes of corporate. They are going forward with who has drawn for them in the past.

NXT Sets Tone For WWE Creative Turnaround | AEW Prospers and Targets New York Debut

AEW has all of the momentum now after Double or Nothing, and whatever WrestleMania momentum WWE had is gone. The WWE faithful is getting very bitter and downright surly.

I think it comes from nervousness that AEW is swinging the pendulum with being first with the live tour announcement, the switchover and new hour on TBS, and a Double Or Nothing

  • Dr. Death

    We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
