    I like Brody.

    Long is fine. Maybe throw in a snake or something from his Wyatt days. But keep it simple.

    It doesn't in WWE. Enzo and Cass are one of the most over guys on Raw and they are shit in the ring. Many fans got invested in the Cena/Miz feud knowing the match will be throwaway.

    it doesn't and I don't expect it when I watch WWE

    most any other wrestling I watch, yes

    I expect matches to be harder and faster paced because thats what gets eyes to their promotion

    Ultimately a reaction is a reaction.

    There are multiple ways to get someone to become a draw. Good work rate is one if you can really connect with the crowd and get them emotionally invested in the story you're telling in the ring. But there are plenty of wrestlers who were proven strong draws even if they strictly speaking weren't great workers. Ultimate Warrior for example. Not to speak ill of the dead, but a lot of his matches weren't exactly classics. But people paid to see him.

    Ideally you should at least be descent at every aspect of sports entertainment (in-ring work, promos, etc) but it's at least possible to be a draw by being GREAT at just one aspect. Not ideal, but possible.

    Kinda nice they're still pushing Hideo.

    I'll admit I was sort of worried that he had 2 back to back injuries. Plus the signing of Nakamura to some degree might have stolen his thunder a bit.

    Maybe Hideo is the one to defeat Roode on his way to the main roster.

    if Hideo catches another injury, he's done

    and I wouldn't blame the WWE one bit for cutting him loose

    Second one wasn't his fault and as most have said why was he in the ring with a newbie to begin with

    not that he's going to win, but its all in how he performs in that match
    After knocking out a major talent.....

    and facing a guy who's went through 8 concussions.

    This is what surprises me the most. Finn was out cold after that elbow, and this guy is getting a world title match after that. Unless this is going to be a squash match.

    i really doubt jindrak is getting a real push/opportunity here. regardless of how well or poorly he performs, he'll be back where he was. this is what's called be used more than pushed imo.

    that said i don't recall ever seeing a great ginger match but i do enjoy his knee based offense. i'll keep my mind open, see what they can do.

    that's actually kind of sad when you consider the talent they have assembled. they could have a great balance of workrate and storyline to go with their already top notch production.
