Right now this screams of Vince coming up with an idea while sitting on the toilet and going with it. 

This is how WWE is booked these days. Drink it in maaaaaannnn.

Why is Low ki wrestling in a full suit?

 

He's doing a Hitman: Agent 47 gimmick, I've heard. He cosplayed it at WrestleKingdom a few years ago.

Great. Fantastic. The last thing WWE needed to do was directly pander to the Indian fans, and of course, they go and do just that. Who cares about a quality product when we can rake in those sweet, sweet rupees, am I right lads?

I just looked up "hajeed" and got links to KKK twitter, some "red pill" forum, and 4chan.  

 

We don't really use those words here...unless I'm missing something innocent (and I don't think I am?).

I've only ever heard the term used on /wooo/, and I always just associated it with the Indian fans who worship Roman Reigns as their lord and savior. So, yeah, missing something innocent.

 

Actually, I just looked it up myself and got none of the links you're talking about. Is your search engine working right...?

So I went to impactwrestling.com to see if there was anything about the merger. The site has not been updated, they are referring to last night's show as if it were tonight. Come on, how hard is it to update their site?

 

Their site has always been a mess and their roster section has always sucked too. I guess I guess I just expected it to be better because of the merger./rebranding/whatever it is. 

 

Shouldn't TNA also be removed from the belts?

He wasn't on the juice during his first run.

Or maybe he just works out really hard and is obsessed with nutrition. I know some wrestling fans are out of shape and allergic to exercise equipment, but this is not true for everyone.

They have a roster page now! Last time I visited the TNA/Impact website, it was just a bunch of random videos and images promoting future events.

 

ShopImpact.com is just an autodirect to ShopTNA.com. Baby steps.

When I say roster page, I mean a jumbled mess of pictures of people that had been in TNA at any given time.

It's the veins that are so off-putting. Alberto del Rio was similarly shredded during his last run, but he looked like he at least had normal bloodflow:

Honestly, I'm just amazed he's getting rewarded for giving Finn a concussion.

I doubt this push is a direct response to concussing Finn, so it's hardly a reward for potatoing 

 

Related, was it confirmed Finn was concussed. I find it hard to believe he'd be back wrestling on Raw the week after.

He passed the concussion protocol, but it sounds like they were unsure whether he would. Here's what I read on rajah.com:

Quote

Finn Balor's match on Raw was held to less than a minute because WWE officials were uncertain whether he would pass his concussion testing. The logic was that if he ended up failing the test, they would not need to scramble to fill up any significant time slot.

Less than a minute? I think it was under 30 seconds.

 

Hell, he didn't even take an offensive move from Hawkins.

I feel like Curt Hawkins stole Triple H's old "H" from his tights.
