The final episode of Raw before the Elimination Chamber PPV is all set to emanate from the Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix, AZ. The eyes of the WWE universe will be fixed on the show as we head into the elimination chamber PPV this Sunday. Both the men and women will make history in the event as we will see for the first time in history 7 men will participate in the Elimination Chamber match, and the first ever women's elimination chamber match. It will be interesting to see how WWE is going to book the final episode of Raw before going into Elimination Chamber.

>Roman Reigns' booking before he wins the elimination chamber match
WWE's Big Dog, Roman Reigns is set to walk into the elimination chamber match this Sunday to secure a spot to face Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship at WrestleMania 34. It is almost certain that he will walk out as victorious from the elimination chamber and will go beast hunting at WrestleMania. This week's Raw will feature a huge 7 men gauntlet match featuring the participants of the men's elimination chamber match. The outcome of this match will be a huge factor going into Sunday. We can expect Roman Reigns to play a very dominant role in this match, he may not win this match though as it will make Sunday's result more predictable. So, expect the Big Dog to be eliminated by Braun Strowman. This will probably be the last time we will see Roman Reigns get pinned for a while as he is set to main event his fourth WrestleMania in a row.

>What / Who will Braun Strowman break next?
We've seen Braun Strowman tip over cars and trucks and pull down heavy sets on his opponents, but never have we ever saw Strowman's entertaining side when he played a gigantic bass and sang it out for the crowd (If you don't count his days as a rosebud). Braun Strowman is one of the favorites going into the elimination chamber match and unfortunately, he will not be the one to walk out of the chamber as the winner, we all know who that is don't we? But that doesn't rule out the possibility of Strowman doing what he does best, and that destroys things and people. We can expect Strowman to walk out of the main event Gauntlet match and go into Elimination Chamber as a dominant force.

>The opponents for the Raw Tag Team Championships
The status of the Raw Tag Team Championships for the elimination chamber PPV is still up in the air and the current champions The Bar are yet to know their opponents for Sunday. We can expect the situation to be cleared on this week's Raw and General Manager Kurt Angle may reveal which team will challenge the Bar for the Tag Team Championships at Elimination Chamber. The best choice would be to have the Revival face The Bar for the tag titles this Sunday as this will certainly be one of the best matches in the event.

>Planting the seeds for a Finn Balor and Miz feud
The Miz has been taking shots at Finn Balor on social media and it seems like the seeds for a potential feud between the superstars is being planted. The Miz fired some shots at Finn Balor on the latter's lack of success ever since he returned from injury. We can expect some sort of retaliation from Finn Balor during their main event gauntlet match in this week's Raw. Personally, I feel this feud has all it takes to make it to WrestleMania and it would be an absolute classic bout between the two for the Intercontinental Championship.

>Clearing the air on the Women's division and Ronda Rousey situation
WWE's women's division will be making history when they compete inside the Elimination Chamber for the very first time. Alexa Bliss will put her Raw Women's Championship…

The WWE style seems to have become constant imitations of the structure of the HBK/Undertaker series. Just big move, kick out, zoom in on shocked face of one of the guys, laying around, rinse repeat.

This style protects guys like the Miz from having trainwreck matches, but it really holds back top tier wrestlers who could obviously do better. It's hard to care about any big match until the first finisher is kicked out of.

you're right

it's only when someone goes outside of these rules do we really get a good match. mostly we just get long heatless ones from the WWE and then you wait for the website tells you whether they're match of the year or not

the abject lack of heel cheating in modern WWE wrestling tanks it to a certain extent. no, a manager interfering doesn't count. i mean wheeling round the ref while choking your opponent, punching them in the back of the head, making them bleed in the most petty way you can etc. and if anyone should be doing this the Miz should be

>I want WWE to die because I dont want indies to grow.

When did I say this?

I specifically said on the first line of the post you're responding to that I want them to grow as long as they keep the underground atmosphere. They can still get bigger without becoming a TV product. I want them to get bigger, but not too big. TV ruined ECW just like it ruined ROH. I've already learned my lesson when it comes to wanting wrestling shows on TV.

Saying I don't want normies invading my interests doesn't equate to not wanting indies to grow.

Normies = WWE fans.
Normies =/= Wrestling fans
Normies aren't interested in niche interests. They're interested in what's popular or "what's in".

> For the year, WWE grossed $800,959,000, by far its record year, up 9.6 percent from last year. Profits were $32,116,000. In 2016, the company grossed $729,216,000 and the profits were $33,725,000. However, the decline of profits is misleading as there was an $11,284,000 charge, a one-time payment arising from the enactment of the new tax law, of which $10,878,000 was a charge due to the re-measurement of deferred tax assets and $406,000 associated with reparation of foreign earnings. So normalized, the profit margin would have been $43.4 million, the best since 2010, about the time WWE started spending money to start the network. It has come slower than expected, and the growth in profits wasn’t because of the network, as predicted eight years ago. The original predictions of $150 million to $250 million in profits and three to four million subscribers by this point aren’t close to happening and the latter won’t happen for decades, if ever.

> For the year, profits on the WWE Network rose from $36.9 million to $57.3 million. The company profits about $3.12 per month per paid subscriber, up from $2.17 in 2016. The increase has been cutting back when it comes to some programming as well as cutting back on the number of PPV shows. Those numbers are actually not completely accurate, because the network division includes actual PPV revenue. In 2017, the company took in $14.2 million from traditional PPV on 16 shows (about 950,000 buys for the year), up from $12.6 million the prior year on 15 shows (about 850,000 buys for the year).

> While WWE has not officially stated the end of brand-specific PPV shows, the belief internally is that is the case. WWE officials told us that an announcement regarding this would be made shortly, which would also indicate the end of them.

> As far as the reasoning, as noted, adding the PPV’s added cost but aside from the live gates, not a lot of new revenue since it didn’t move network numbers. Ticket sales for some of the upcoming PPV shows were weaker, although a lot of that may have to do with the increasing of ticket prices on the floor. In cutting back on PPV shows to 14 this year (the goal is 12, one a month, and it’s possible to cut back later in the year), there were long gaps in the brand-specific shows meaning they had to greatly slow down storylines.

> While again not official, within WWE the belief was that, because of having to fit the top stars of both brands, that the former B shows will be increased an hour with two match pre-shows and four hour PPV shows. They will have both shows specifically pushing the same PPV every month and all the top stars would be on it. The negative is a lot of the middle and lower card acts won’t be on PPV as much, if at all. And if they’re not on the PPV, they’ll be focused on less on television. One of the benefits of the brand split, which, when it comes to ratings has been a success since Smackdown is more popular and Raw’s massive slide has decreased, is that more wrestlers are being featured each week as stars. Since they have to fill hours of television, you’ll probably get more stipulation matches on the television shows that would have been on PPV with mid-level guys.

The reason why might surprise you! jokes

>The WWE is doing the kind of business that makes it a potential acquisition target for content-hungry media conglomerates, scoring $50.6 million in net income off of $801 million in revenue last year, an all-time high. The company managed to build what is the 11th-most-popular streaming service in the United States, with some 1.5 million subscribers paying $9.99 a month for its content.

https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/significant-digits-for-tuesday-feb-20-2018/

And that's all there is to it. It's interesting that they see this as "some other conglomerate might want to buy WWE given those numbers". NBC Universal already has a pretty solid deal with WWE, but would Vince ever sell? If WWE did become part of some conglomerate, what would the wrestling landscape look like?

wow it's almost like Impact is sometimes a little disorganized or something

I assume they'll be in The Pancake Zoon, Eh? the minimum needed for their Canada tax dodge but not anything more.

The Impact Zone crowds aren't anything great but at least they don't have to pay people to show up there.

I think the art of the bump is lost on a lot of guys.

It's a combination of not only making the move look as devastating as possible, but doing it safely while also looking believable. Landing safely is a skill.

Who do you think is the very best at bumping for moves?

Not that he was a heel the whole time, but we need that more. A big problem with heels these days is that it's not fun to watch them get beat up. Miz is amazing at facial expressions and that helps a lot but he feeds a comeback like everyone else and everyone else is shit. Ziggler's big bumps could of been part of that, but he'd do the same thing when he was a good guy which was completely counter intuitive.

Just found some stuff you might be interested in:
>Notes from Johnny Powers interview with 57talk.com
>He was a promoter in the Toronto/Buffalo/Cleveland area. He felt they couldn’t count on NWA champs coming often enough, so he broke away with theNWF. They got good magazine press and had enough talent that they were reputable, on par with other major territories. However they lost money, in part because Johnny took a lot of risks. Inoki, who knew Powers from Powers having worked in JWA, called Powers for advice. The NWA demanded too much to join (40k; others only paid a token amount) because they already had Baba in Japan. Powers told him to forget that and said he’d make Inoki a world champ by selling him the company and its title. Inoki only cared about the title and never tried promoting shows in the US despite paying more money than the NWA wanted in the first place.
>However, for some reason Powers didn’t get all the money up front. He was consultant and wrestler for Inoki for years, giving him booking ideas. In the end Inoki reneged on a promised 60k final payment in ’80 because he’d taken everything Powers had to offer (title, ideas). Powers threatened to sue, but Inoki told him he’d counter-sue and win because Powers was a gaijin. Powers decided to walk away. On one hand it was dishonest, but on the other hand Powers got a lot of money for a promotion he didn’t actually want anymore when he sold it.
>Vince told Inoki to drop the NWF name (NWF having been a former northeast rival), so they went to the IWGP name in the mid-80s. Powers views himself as having had a big impact on the creation of Strong Style.

>Notes from Bruno Sammartino interview with Wrestling Observer Radio
>Background: Bruno wrestled in Japan starting with JWA in the ‘60s, though he wrestled less often upon becoming WWF champ.
>He gave Baba a Cadillac because Baba was driving a typical small Japanese car, and it was tough to import them (between the lines: Baba didn’t want to buy one and risk incurring nationalist resentment). Bruno loved Baba and Joe Higuchi, and they went out of their way to get Bruno, but Bruno didn’t go over often because he made such good money in the US. The car wa…

Apollo Crews...or just Apollo now...is the latest midcard guy to suddenly have his last name disappear.

Is someone in marketing just tired of having to put last names on merchandise? This loathing of last names is just baffling.

Honestly, Nikolas Cruz should drop his last name to avoid any association with Ted Cruz. That could really harm his reputation if someone thought he was related to Ted.
