We’re starting with some news from
SmackDown Live this week, and it
was good news in the ratings this week for the blue brand. According to Showbuzzdaily.com,
this week’s go home show for
Summerslam averaged 2.08 million viewers on the USA Network, up
nine per cent from last week. With this week’s Monday Night RAW
also seeing an increase of viewers,
it’s no surprise that SmackDown was able to retain 84 per cent of
RAW’s audience, a stark contrast
to the recent July 23rd show, which only retained 69 per cent of the
red brand’s audience. The August 6th episode finished
seventh for the night in terms of
total cable TV viewers, and took top spot with the 18 to 49
demographic, hitting a 0.63
rating. This impressive demographic rating
was even able to beat the network
TV programming on both FOX and CBS, though the first hour of
SmackDown came up short against
ABC, and the entire show fell behind NBC. This week’s show, which saw Roman
Reigns finally get some answers on
who attacked him, as well as Shane McMahon turn the tables on
Kevin Owens, only saw a 5 per
cent decrease from the same week in 2018, and though WWE would
obviously want the number of viewers
to increase, this 5 per cent drop isn’t as bad as other weeks, and this
has been the third time over the past
month that the year over year decline has been reduced to
single figures. By comparrison, this week’s Miz
and Mrs, which followed Smack
Down on the USA Network was the third most watch show in the 18-49
demographic of its time, drawing a
0.39 rating. The episode Heel No More, which
documented the A-Lister’s change
to a babyface earlier this year, drew 1.05 million viewers, the
highest viewership of the show this
season, and the third highest total since August last year. Hopefully WWE will be able to keep
this momentum going after Summer
slam, as it seems the months of falling ratings may have finally
come to an end. Speaking of Summerslam, the
August tradition is this Sunday
and though the show has some blockbuster matches announced,
one encounter fans probably
won’t see will be Roman Reigns Vs. Daniel Bryan. According to rumors, the pair were
supposed to face off at the Pay Per
View, with the Yes Man being revealed as the one responsible
for the recent attacks backstage
on the Big Dog. According to the PW Insider though,
there match won’t be happening at
the biggest party of the summer, saying: “The Summerslam card was to have
featured Roman Reigns against
Daniel Bryan, but the word making the rounds at TV last night was that
the bout will likely be dropped in
order to let the current storyline play out.” On this week’s SmackDown Live,
the blame for these incidents was
seemingly placed on Rowan, Bryan’s protege and tag team partner,
though Bryan himself said the former
Wyatt family member had nothing to do with last week’s
falling scaffolding, or this week’s
car accident. Though Reigns won’t be facing
Bryan, or Rowan for that matter
at the Pay Per View, the Big Dog may still compete, as Wrestle
Votes are reporting that the former Universal Champion may
face Buddy Murphy. On this week’s show, it was Murphy
who said that Rowan was the one
responsible for the attacks, and though the match isn’t set in stone,
Wrestle Votes said a source told
them that it remains a possibility. Given how Vince McMahon has
acted backstage recently, it’s highly
possible that the Boss could tear up the script of Summerslam just hours
before the show, something he
reportedly did with this week’s episode of SmackDown Live. Though we understand how busy
the Boss is, with both WWE, the
war with AEW and the upcoming XFL season on his mind, it wouldn’t hurt
McMahon to take a chance to calm
down, as his erratic behaviour has left the biggest party of the
Summer without Reigns or Bryan,
two of the company’s biggest stars in recent years. It seems now that Daniel Bryan
won’t be competing in Toronto this
Sunday, and according to recent reports, this isn’t the only bit of
bad news for the former WWE
Champion this week. On the July 16th edition of Smack
Down Live, Bryan was set to make
a quote “career altering announcement” and though he tried
to deliver it three times, left without
saying a word. Though fans have speculated on
what Bryan’s announcement could
be, with some fans fearing a possible re-retirement, it seems the
WWE Universe will never get
answers, as the angle has been completely dropped, according
to the PW Insider. A report by the site says that there
was no mention of the announcement
backstage at SmackDown this week, as it seems the storyline,
whatever it was, isn’t going to
happen. With both this and his match against
Roman Reigns at Summerslam
dropped, hopefully Bryan will receive something good soon, as
he continues to be one of the most
entertaining aspects on the blue brand since returning from his
retirement last year. Well we spoke earlier about how
Vince McMahon is making some
erratic decisions in WWE, and it seems that this has been going
on for a while now. This week, former WWE writer
Jimmy Jacobs sat down with
Chris Van Vliet, and spoke about the culture backstage
inside the company. Jacobs, who was famously fired after
taking a picture with the Bullet Club,
said that WWE didn’t have a healthy work environment, and that
the place breeds discontentment.
He said: “There’s like this one black cloud
that hangs over the entire place
and that’s the crazy man (McMahon). It just creates this environment where
people aren’t trying to do their best.
It’s just like ‘what’s the crazy man not going to yell at
me about?’ Jacobs clearly isn’t a fan of the
company he once worked for, and
also spoke about the decision to bring in the new Executive
Directors Paul Heyman and
Eric Bischoff. Though McMahon told investors
that investors that the new Executive
Directors would mean he wouldn’t be in the weeds, Jacobs
said how the biggest problem is
McMahon himself. “He can bring in Paul Heyman and
Eric Bischoff and you know,
whoever he wants — Bill Watts and whatever bookers from the past…
he could move all the pieces around,
but as long as ‘this piece’ is on the board the game’s gonna get
played the same, man.” Whilst the idea that Vince will
actually act on these suggestions
by Jacobs seems unlikely, tearing up scripts mere hours before
the show isn’t going to help build a
strong team dynamic and could see more people backstage want
out of the Sports Entertainment
promotion, especially with spots at AEW and other companies
being available. From one former WWE personality
to another now, as it seems former
Superstar Big Cass has finally got his life back on track. Cass, who was fired from the company
last year had his contract terminated
after he went off script to attack a little person, and this started
a downward spiral in the seven
footer’s life. Fortunately, it seems that Cass has
been able to overcome his recent
substance abuse issues, and fans couldn’t help but notice his great
shape this week, at a show for
Cactus League Wrestling. Now going by cazXL, the former
WWE Superstar has lost a ton of
weight and told fans about his return to the ring, saying: “To everybody out there in the world
that doubted me and said I was fat,
out of shape, and they wrote me off and said I’d never be back
in professional wrestling after a
seizure nearly took my life in front of 1,500 people … I say this – I ain’t
f**king dead yet!” The seizure Cass is referring to
happened in December last year
as the former Superstar collapse ring at a House of Hardcore
show, shocking everyone. It’s great to see the Big Man finally
get his life back on track, as Cass
has admitted that he has suffered from mental health and alcohol
issues, two things the seven foot
heavyweight has worked hard to deal with. Though fans may not see Cass back
in a WWE ring after his firing in 2018,
another Superstar who hasn’t been seen in many months is Sasha
Banks, who continues to be one of
the most discussed Superstars this year, despite not being
in the ring. After taking a break following her
WrestleMania 35 loss to the IIconics,
the Boss has been enjoying her break though it seems this time
may be coming to an end. According to Brad Shephard on the
Oh You Didn’t Know podcast, Banks
is ready to get back to work, though is easier said than done. One major issue the WWE now
faces is finding the right time for
Banks to return, as after so long
away, the company needs to have
something big to explain her
absence. Though Shephard said he has been
given some speculation on what the
company might do, he didn’t share any of these ideas with his
listeners, as fans can only wonder
what the company has planned. In a backstage roster report though,
Banks has been listed as a heel on
the RAW roster, a stark change from the position of the Boss
earlier this year. Since coming to the main roster as
part of the Women’s Revolution in
2015, Banks has spent almost all that time as a babyface, and it seems
embracing her heel roots from her
time in NXT may be the breath of fresh air the former Women’s
Tag Team Champion needs. Though Banks and Bayley may
have become the very first WWE
Women’s Tag Team Champions at Elimination Chamber earlier this
year, it seems that that huge win,
and the titles themselves nearly didn’t happen. Earlier this week, Tom Colohue said
how a source told him that Vince
McMahon didn’t want the belts to be created, but announced them as
Santa Claus on the 2018 Christmas
Eve edition of RAW due to the pressure he was put under. He said: “Vince didn’t want women’s tag titles.
He was under a lot of pressure so
he brought them in early without thinking much about it. There
was no plan. We still don’t know if
there’s any plan.” This report by Colohue definitely
falls in line with what Bayley recently
said about McMahon never giving the new tag titles a chance,
and though the new titles were made
out to be a huge deal once they arrived, that quickly diminished. During the IIconics’ reign as
champions, the pair barely won
any matches, only retaining controversial circumstances in the
few title defences they actually had. Hopefully things will change with
the new champions Nikki Cross
and Alexa Bliss, but given how the Women’s tag team gold has been
treated this year, we wouldn’t bet
on it. And we’re ending today with some
big news from the world of Video
Games, as wrestling games developer Yuke’s will no longer be
developing games for the WWE
2K series, ending a near 20 year partnership. Starting from 2k20, which is set to
come out this October, the games
will now solely be created by 2k’s in house studio, visual concepts. In an interview given earlier this year,
Yuke’s senior vice president and
Producer Hiromi Furuta mentioned that though the company
won’t be making WWE games any
more, they’re not out of the wrestling industry just yet. He said: “We are trying to launch a new
wrestling game. Of course we will
retain the WWE team, but we are
also aware that our creators are
beginning to lose sight of their passion and confidence,
and becoming focused only on
completing assigned tasks That’s not the direction Yuke’s
wants to go in. So in order to
compensate, we’re going to start a new
wrestling project.” What this new project from Yuke’s
is remains to be seen, but fans can
get ready to play the new WWE 2K20 game, complete with Roman
Reigns and Becky Lynch on the cover,
when the game hits shelves on October 22nd this year. Well guys , that’s the news for today

  1. Vince is a racist! and Clearly we all can see Alexa Bliss is F*cking Vince McMahon to get what she wants cuz we all know The Kabuki Warriors were promised them belts a long time ago

  2. I don't Blame Vince I mostly blame the creative writers for these terrible bookings if it wasn't for Vince we wouldn't never had WWE!

  3. Give Big Cass another chance now hes clean he can work on his character. Besides being big. He could be a good promo guy.

  4. Well that's Vince for you totally changing things at the last minute so this should not be totally surprising.

  5. Since Vince is relaunching the XFL he needs to retire from WWE to focus all his energy on the XFL and HHH takes over

  6. Heel $asha is what's best for
    business. 💰

    Yukes is working on a original
    wrestling game, that was announced
    months ago.

  7. WWE NEWS – Sasha Banks Returns As Heel/Roman Reigns Vs Daniel Bryan SummerSalm
    CANCELLED By Vince!
    Well that's Vince for you totally
    changing things at the last minute
    so this should not be totally
    surprising.

  8. Every time I visit my grandmother, she rearranges her living room too, must have something to do with getting older?

  9. Will Sasha throw another hissy fit tantrum like a three year old if she isn’t handed a championship immediately?

  10. Wait.cello Vince McMahon tour up the script to SmackDown live last week, and then it gets its highest ratings and like forever? Huh. Neat.

  11. IF VINCE ESSENTIALLY COME AND TEARS THE SCRIPT UP EVERY WEEK ITS A SHOCK IF THE WRITERS ACTUALLY GET TO WRITE NOT THAT HE RIPS UP SCRIPTS

  12. Banks is overrated. It's obvious the WWE doesn't need her. She'll show up, people will be excited then not long after she will be just another wrestler that is a waste of TV time

  13. Vince was right the women's tag titles should have never been created. Women's segments are boring. I use that time to take a shower or something. It seem like women's wrestling is just there to appease people who want inclusion.

  14. I thought Daniel was going to announce that Brie is pregnant again and belittle the wwe Universe and our "killing the earth" angle

  15. Sasha Banks should be Becky Lynch's next opponent. She can jump both Becky and Bailey on Raw and Smackdown and then have matches against both; she makes Becky pass out and when she's about to do the same to Bailey, Becky comes to the rescue and starts beating Sasha. The following week Charlotte faces Bailey and beats her and Sasha loses by dq against Becky. On Smackdown they have a tag team match and the heels get away. The faces then challenge them to matches at the next ppv, Charlotte vs Bailey and Sasha VS Becky. Sasha wins and Charlotte loses but both feuds continue during the fall.

  16. it seems to me like a good way to bring Sasha back, is have her interfere in the SummerSlam match by her attacking bailey. You know, for loosing the tag titles and what not. I sure would like to see that rivalry again.

  17. I wouldn't get too happy about those ratings. Vince and WWE likes to turn shit around in a split second!

  18. WHAT DID REIGNS DO BORE HIMSELF OUT OF THE PROGRAM THIS IS NOT SMACKDOWN IT'S CHALLENGE OH IT'S BULL SHIT JUST LIKE ALL OF YOU BELEVING YOUR RELAVANT 😆🖕💩😝🖕😝

  19. Great, now we will have not one, but two of the superstars that have been rammed down our throats on the cover. Disappointing.

  20. Whatever they do they need to send sasha separate ways from hug buddy, that shit sucks and she was way better as single competitor not holding her back

  21. WWE had a good weekend, BUT how do you have one of your triple crown PPV's along with Mania and Survivor series, and have it NOT INCLUDE IN ANYWAY The talent the company is building around and is set to be the next "top guy" in Drew Mcyntire, It gets worse though because its not just Drew, its arguably the best talent in the world in AJ Styles, and also Roman Reigns, Samoa Joe, Daniel Bryan, Sami Zayn, Ricochet, its not enough to be content with. Summerslam was solid just nowhere near as solid as Takeover and thats with this Takeover not having the strength of the card other instances have. Lets be real honest, NXT is the future and NXT because its the brand for the WWE universe as opposed to investors and shareholders, May be the best in the business, and thats with obvious limitations in terms of internal support. I challenge anyone to provide an argument that realistically NXT competes and wins against every other brand out there today and come Novembers thats who AEW is competeing against, Listen I'm not on board this idea that AEW is going to debut in October and put WWE out of business. I think its actually THE BEST thing possible for WWE. Echo chambers are not condusive to progress growth or evolution. Right now, all of the other companies not just in the US but world wide pose next to no threat or challenge to WWE's cornering of the marketplace both in America and aboard. Taking the company public was a game changer for WWE in terms of targeting, programming, and who they are producing for. Having such a strangle hold has left the company complacent. They arent taking the risks they once did, and instead of whats best for business being whats best for the McMahan family and the WWE universe, whats best for business now is whats best for the mcmahans and STOCK HOLDERS. NXT proves WWE is still capable of listening to the audience, being adaptable and flexible in terms of programming direction and content, and being pioneeers at the forefront and setting not just the bar but the tone. AEW will hopefully reinvigerate both the McMahan family, shareholders, employees and the universe alike to get back to the business of doing what made them the benchmark. Guys like The Undisputed Era, Riddle and the Street Prophets are the future and the future should be soon. Adam cole and Gargano proved again what the future is going to hold, and it cant come soon enough. Hopefully when Balor returns we see him link up with the OC and have the Undisputed Era come up and get the same kind of run the Shield got and like them, Survior series would be a homerun if they pull the trigger. As a mark, my ultimate hope is Ziggler takes some time away, and comes back with a beard, his hair cut short, as a Paul Heymen guy and starts superkicking the jaws off anyone who even breathes around him. It would also present a booking chance to see Ziggler get the run hes always deserved, with Heyman by his side not because he needs someone to talk for him but because Heyman brings out the best of everyone he works with. And like CM Punk and the shield, you could find ways to have the Undisputed Era link up with this new Ziggler or not but Ziggler deserves better than squash matches.
