I only went with Jinder because I like the idea of one 3MB member on each brand. They're far too powerful together, and therefore must be kept separate.



Everything is awesome.

Zayn and Owens must fight forever.

Primo and epico. Hopefully with uso-esque rebirth.

Jinder Mahal.

Charlotte. But we all guessed it.

Tamina. I saw her at a sd house show. Thought she was already there.

The new day.

Sin cara. No Lucha dragons reunion.

Rusev. Then like 20 mins later dancing Lana. Though it was summer Rae for a bit.

Smackdown won the shakeup hands down for one reason only. They won it last week. Nakamura is the biggest get of any brand period. Now I want Wyatt to win the belt. Heyman says Brock goes where he wants and faces who he wants. Nakamura/Lesnar at Summerslam.

Nakamura and Styles both being on the same show kind of seals it. Beyond that, SD still has Orton, Cena, now has Owens and Zayn, and while I'll miss The Miz, there's not a lot to complain about.

Crap..I like Alexa better than Charlotte and hope she gets in that match but I feel like I just got robbed of an alltime classic ROH main event (even if it's a WWE style version and Balor never was in ROH)

    I'm curious what they do with the titles. Since Bray still has his title match, I assume he won't win and take it to Raw. Can Daniel Bryan quickly make Ambrose defend it (and lose) to Corbin or such...I assume that's the road they'll go.


Well I guess that is a quick way to solve part of the problem.
Owens on Smackdown (and Sami too. Yes they are destined to fight forever. Or team up eventually?) is good though.
Feuds with AJ, Nakamura will be awaiting.
After he drops the title to Mojo or something..
Rusev vs AJ and such will be good too.

New Day on SD ..sure. It gives both shows a 'crowd popping tag team'

I think Smackdown came out the winner of this.
At least for potential which we know is something they work well with.
One thing I don't look forward to. Charlotte screaming her way through a long feud with Becky.

Nah, I'd rather see Nakamura fight somebody good.

Overall, yeah, SDL got the better end of this. Miz and Alexa are fairly big losses, but getting Owens, Zayn, Charlotte, New Day, and eventually Rusev (after he heals up, he might wind up being the biggest get of the bunch) really fills the upper card in a way that SDL really, really needed to.

My biggest hopes in all of this, in no particular order: actual push for Sami Zayn, rebuild of Primo and Epico, WWE championship opportunities for Rusev and especially for Big E. We'll see what we get.

Seconded on Big E! The guy could be in a main event scene and rock it.

SD definitely wins.

Also, I'm the one person glad to see Tamina back.

Don't recall when or where, but I have a vague memory of Xavier Woods saying his main goal as a performer was to help Kofi Kingston get a world title. So you may be putting your money on the wrong New Day member.

So, that Triple H, Samoa Joe, Kevin Owens partnership was something

The winner or Owens and Jericho at the next PPV goes to Smackdown is what I have been reading. If that is the case then plan on Jericho winning and going to Smackdown where he will quickly lose the belt. This frees up Owens to stay with HHH and Joe and chase the championship belt.



Life is hilariously cruel.



It ain't the six minutes... it's what happens in that six minutes.



I....declare.....BANKRUPTCY!!!!

I took that as "if Jericho wins, he's also on Smackdown." They did way too much KO promotion (suit, shave, Talking Smack appearance, etc.) to back out of moving him.

They definitely presented it as "whichever one wins the match is on Smackdown now", which really calls into question what kind of deals were supposed to be going down backstage over the last two days. Does Shane just hate Ambrose so much that he gave him and the IC up for "whoever has the US title, either a guy who might retire at any minute or a total bully who will make my life hell"?

And why is the Wyatt/Orton match not loser goes to RAW? They already did a build for Styles/Owens and Wyatt/Balor. Why can't they just wait two weeks before making matches for the ppv public? That would solve all these problems.

When Angle said Steph told him to get rid of Rollins and he didn't, and then he got rid of Owens, I figured this is all a set up for an Angle/Stephanie feud because of course they have to ruin Angle's return.

I do think Owens is gone for now though. Jericho has been scheduled to leave for months now. It made sense to delay it for Wrestlemania and the end of this feud but I expect for Jericho to be gone very soon.

Count me as Team Kofi (and yes Xavier did say that ALL of New Day's goal was to get Kofi over). I think Kofi and Big E are pretty equal in ability so for me it just comes down to A) he's been around forever and is due B) I like Xavier/Big E as a tag team better than Xavier/Kofi. I mean Xavier is basically just a worse Kofi, but Xavier/Big E is at least two different styles.

Oh, terrific plan. JR: “Oh, I wish we'd get serious about our cruiserweight division.” And the first step towards doing that is to take away Kidman's “holy shit” move and give it to Lesnar.
