    Well going to skip Backlash. Not interested in Orton being a jobber or said jobber potentially winning the title in what is probably the most unwanted and undeserving pushes in recent memory

  • Dave Barton

    “But Vince, Jinder just re-injured Finn Balor in his first match since coming back to Raw.”

    “I don’t care, dammit! Look at the body on him! He’s EARNED this title shot!”

  • DLM Entertainment

    Sweet Daddy Sikki….JINDER MAHAL???? Sure he’s jacked, but he’s got about as much charisma as a turnbuckle.

    • Dave Barton

      Wouldn’t it be great if George Steele came back from the dead & tried to eat him?

  • Gary Robert

    …the F?

    Imagine a world where Jinder Mahal is your WWE Champion, part-timer Brock Lesnar is your Universal Champion…

    And while we’re at it, let’s strap Ellsworth with the Intercontinental Title.

  • David F

    WWE got their 420 on a little early

  • Joseph James

    Say whaaaaat?

  • Ahsan Gasal

    People keep forgetting, Vince wants to tap more from India, I could say wise business decision.

  • ROB-1.

    What a waste. Someone in the WWE must have been taking too much medication.

  • Stephen Cash

    Apparently Raw and Smackdown Live swapped writing teams during the superstar shakeup too. Smackdown Live sucked this week. Roster is weak. I was hoping they’d use this to build Zayn and that KO would have a meaningful title defense… nope. I don’t see how you justify this to the rest of the talent.
