    While I'm sure they rotated out to some degree and at least would get breaks between segments and stuff, I think I read that they're taping two weeks in one go now or something. Not sure if that meant two Raw and two SD or if those are a separate day.

    As for the changes for Raw? Mixed bag. I was mostly watching Titan Games, but kept a stream on Raw and would look over when something was worth attention. In terms of during matches, it was a big upgrade. Simply having any sort of ambient noise will help a lot of people. Now, constantly cutting to these people is something that I should have expected, but needs to be massively cut down. I know, that's not a problem specific to the current situation. During promos, I personally didn't find they were adding much/anything. Bad promo writing/delivery is still going to come off bad, only that it'll now sound like some bombing at standup. Good stuff (Drew/Lashley/MVP) doesn't need this stuff. Would it be even better with a regular crowd? Sure, but having 25 people reacting does little for that.

    The glass? Terrible, and even the eventual spots won't make up for it. At least get rid of it on the ramp so they're not going down a tunnel. It looks really bad with all the LED, lasers, spotlights moving around. Around the ring, not a problem but I see it and think "what's the point" other than it being symbolic of something that they refuse to reference?

    Basically yesterday was Raw, Smackdown, Main Event, and I think 205 live, today is the following weeks episodes.

    Yeah, reading further they were allowed to sit between segments, but still that makes for a hell of a long day.

    Looking at pictures, that glass is stupid. If they want to keep fans from touching the wrestlers once live audiences return, they'd be better off keeping the rows further back, or shorten the ringside area and ramp. Even with AEW giving WWE 2 months of information on how to handle having talent as the audience, I still think they managed to fuck it up and half ass it.

    I haven't watched WWE in some time, though I try to read the results just in case they do something particular cool or interesting. That being said, can someone explain to me how Charlotte is being booked? It seems all over the place.

    She's basically the same, except now she's everywhere. She did lose a meaningless match against Bayley as part of that new roster twist, and I think I read it was clean.

    Well, I'm confused because she had a match vs Io Shirai that I watched and I was disappointed by. I thought Io was still a heel, but then Charlotte tried to destroy Io's knee(obvious heel move). I read Charlotte interfered in Rhea vs Io as well(obvious heel move). Then she wrestles Bayley(who is also a heel) on SD and insults Bayley and Sasha(might have the timeline out of order here). She then is in a triple threat for Asuka's title(Are Asuka and Kairi still heels?), but is not involved in the decision. So is she a heel, a face, a tweener?

    Edit: Apparently she is getting a match vs Asuka next week after losing the number 1 contender match. I give up on trying to understand this.

    I think heel and face has been mostly tossed out as far as the women go. Charlotte seems to be that heel that is also hated by all other heels because she's such a heel. Io kind of slowly turned face when she returned for the #1 contenders match though Rhea has been a face. Asuka and Kairi(who got hurt by Nia Jax yet again today apparently) are both faces again though when they actually turned face I'm not sure. Just seemed to happen suddenly when Asuka started doing commentary.

    Who thought putting a match together with Nia, Kairi, and stairs was a good idea? Seems negligent.

    Charlotte's not gone face, not tweener. She's just allowed to face heels because they have to put her everywhere. Asuka (and Kairi) just turned with Becky out because new face of the division.

    I don't think Io's changed really. She's always been a popular heel, but something of a tweener with heel leanings. She'll align with the heels, but doesn't care about them.

    Didn't know about the match against Asuka next week. That is bizarre, but more of the "Charlotte is the only woman that matters" I guess.

    Nia and murdering Kairi, name a more iconic duo.

    To no surprise Jim Cornette hated the Stadium Stampede match and has sworn off AEW and says everyone involved should be ashamed and he said was embarrassed for Jericho, Hardy, Jim Ross etc., his old man yelling at clouds act has reached its apex

    I'm honestly not surprised. Bucks and Omega could deliver quintuplets while saving a sack of puppies from drowning and Cornette's hate boner would shit all over it.

    Generational shit, be it wrestlers or management, seems to be the most incestuous cancer the biz has to offer.

    This would be about the fifth time in the past two months he has sworn off AEW but if he ever actually did he'd have no content for his podcast

    Bloodsport was one of my top 2 or 3 shows of Mania week in recent years, so I'm glad that WWE actually tried doing a match more similar in style to that with some of these guys.

    The booking of the CW tournament is just silly to me. I hope KUSHIDA is at least bringing in some serious money in WWE.
