Show 003 – The End of Days for the Reality Era.


  1. Opening
    1. Introduction
    2. Big Rumor
      1. Has been seen on many rumor sites.  Has not been confirmed by the big reporters like Dave Meltzer
      2. Rumor is that at payback that A.J. Styles will win with Gallows, Andersons and maybe Finn Balor help.
        1. Lead to Shield vs. Bullet Club feud.  Yes Seth Rollins will show up and side with Roman and Dean after feud starts.
        2. Good for Roman as it makes him look cool again (example – Fan says “Wow I forgot how cool Roman was in the Shield”)
  2. WWE News
    1. Nakamura and Zane
      1. May already be Match of the Year.
    2. Predictions from mastermind Facebook page
      1. This one should be a lock – Barron Corbin makes his main roster debut due to winning the Battle Royal
      2. We will get a tag team debut – It will be Enzo and Cass or the Vaudevillians (kind of right as we got them on smack down).
      3. If we do not get a New Tag Team then Joe will show up
      4. Finally and this is my dark horse pick – Bailey makes her debut due to losing on Friday and to add more power to the NEW Women’s Division.

      3. With the last debuts this year and last NTX is taking over the WWE and it’s for the better.
    4. Debate Did the Triple Threat Woman’s Title Match steal the show.
      1. Note that Divas are now Superstars
      2. Also the created new belt that look like the Men’s Championship
      3. Both changes put them at the same level as the Men
    5. Shane should have died!!!
      1. Reaction by Taker after spot was priceless
      2. Shane still gets control of Raw for now.
    6. No Miz No
      1. Miz beats Zack for IC Title
      2. They just wanted to give Zack a WM moment
      3. At least we get Maryse and the Hair Flip and I am OK with that.

    2. Average match time – 15min
