How was roman treated?

If you mean crowd reaction wise, I was there, and the boos were VERY loud and seemed pretty unanimous. I say this as someone that doesn't mind Roman Reigns.

Show was great live, though. Crowd was hot basically the whole time.

Usos and Reigns are on different shows now, so I'm not sure what you think will happen.

Brand split means zero. Cena, Styles, and Ambrose are all advertised for tonight's show. They did the same thing the last time they split the roster...in the week immediately following there were people on the "wrong show."

 

Fully expect Roman to make some pissy comment about the Usos. If not this week, then soon.

They could just be there to tie up loose ends. The brand split isn't even a week old yet and we just a had a co-branded PPV last night, give it some time before you shit all over it.

Why would Bray get a title shot before AJ Styles?

Don't know what you're talking about. I wasn't shitting on it at all, just saying that if the need arises, the brand split is not like some hard-and-fast rule that they follow no matter what. On the very first show after the original brand split, HHH showed up to attack Undertaker.

But, to be fair, the Cena, AJ etc advertising may even be outdated/"card subject to change."

Interesting show tonight. Seems like they're trying some new camera angles and stuff. Too bad they didn't do a new set to go along with the new logo and theme, other than the Nitro announce table which Raw did for years already.

The disdain for Roman tonight is really something. It's not even that he's being booed, it's just like a "ugh Fuck this" reaction.

I Think he should just steal the way Low Ki does it and do a roll immediately after impact. Not really a fan of how it always looks like Balor is slipping on their chest right as it lands.

I'm so pumped for Rollins vs Balor. I've been anticipating this match for a long time. 

 

I really enjoyed RAW tonight. The new set was nice, and the camera work was pretty neat too. I'm into it.

I just finished watching Raw and i was going to say that i really dug the camera work too. I also enjoyed getting the  immediate interview/reaction from the wrestlers too. Now lets see what Smackdown does.

Wow. Didn't expect him to win the main event.

Man, that segment where all the women came out got me so pumped for a championship announcement... but then turns out the big reveal was just Eva Marie.  :wall: I'm gonna remain hopeful, maybe it will come.

 

Looking back at the overall show I'm a little confused, though. They were hyping Smackdown to be this all-new totally different brand, but for the most part it seemed pretty much the same as usual (besides the new higher/closer hard camera) whereas RAW was much different. Makes me wonder if a lot of RAW's changes were planned for Smackdown but got swapped last minute.

This isn't mine, but thought it was worth a repost. Meltzer still gets way too "it's still real to me" on occasion:

 


"Charlotte this week surpassed the Nikki Bella vaunted 301 days in a row as champion streak. It really means nothing because the Divas title that Nikki holds the record for was dropped so Charlotte had 196 days as Divas champion and when she hit 302 days as champion, it was 106 as women's champion." 

 

Also, Macho Man Randy Savage never lost a retirement match to the Ultimate Warrior. That was Macho King Randy Savage.

This reminds me of Hulk Hogan claiming that him and Terry Bollea have two different penis sizes.
