    Ronda Rousey returns at Wrestlemania for the staredown after Bayzler wins the title. Holy shit chants close out the show.

    You mean for the heel on the apron to choke one his opponent's with while the heel's tag partner distracts the ref?

    Oh wait, that's a spot we can't have anymore

    I don't know about that. Is Bayzler marketable enough to be champion?

    While that would be nice, I was more referring to the "The man in the corner must be holding the rope to be tagged in legally" rule. At one point, Murphy was halfway down the apron, well past what would have been the rope's limit, had he actually been holding the thing. Yet Rollins still tagged him, and the ref just yelled "TAG", like normal.

    Doesnt matter what WWE wants to do if the city is worried enough.

    They might have to do an empty arena show to still air something

    Ummm...about that...

    WWE Moving This Week's SmackDown To Performance Center Due To Coronavirus - Wrestlezone

    I’d call and see if a refund is possible.

    EDIT: SmackDown is not cancelled in Detroit. Please disregard the above link.

    There were only 3 guys about to debut..... and Matt was very likely not the client......leaving two new guys and a 50/50 chance of your guess being right

    Personally, I thought Archer would be with Jake and Harper will be the BRO SWERVE BRO leader of the Dark Order

    Well, fair shot for Harper, given that the Dark Order is presenting the Exalted One at Dynamite in Rochester next week

    Yeah. Jake debuted the night Archer was supposed to. Harper/Brody Lee likely debuts the night that the Dark Order's leader is revealed.

    I just think he's the dark Order leader because it feels like an extension of his time in the Wyatts. He's moved up from cult member to cult leader. Learned from Bray.

    Since I saw on TV that the NBA has been suspended and @ILoveDinobot reporting that the NHL was also suspended, I came here to see if WWE were to do the same.

    Found my answer.

    My concern with Harper/Lee possibly being the Exalted One is can he cut the sort of promo that such a role would require?
    Though I do kind of like the idea of AEW going against the usual cult leader tropes and have Harper be minimalist with the speaking. Make it clear he is the Exalted One and running the show, but have Uno be the group's mouthpiece while Lee orders the group around with brief directives and gestures.

    I'm cool with that, it'll give Evil Uno the exposure he needs to build his character while all the attention of being the big bad will fall to Brodie Lee; if he is the Exalted One.
