Please let Owens/Seth open the show

I don't want that hiding in the middle somewhere, waiting to drop on me. If it's not closing, I want it out of the way early.

If the women close the show, I'll be incredibly annoyed. Not that they don't deserve to or aren't capable of doing so, but that they are doing so specifically for the sake of history, as they've built it over the last month. The Foley promo we got last week, why the hell didn't we get that the first mention of this match? Why hasn't this matched been promoted as the closing match?

Ultimately it doesn't matter, especially in the era of the network rather than ppvs, but I can be peeved at things that don't matter.

It's been promoted as the main event for like, a week and a half. Foley's promo wasn't their first mention of it.

Also, Rusev/Roman was good fun.

"triple main event" doesn't say which is the closing match. There were reports as late as yesterday saying it was undecided if the women would close and only today did dirtsheets claim it was confirmed.

Never got to watch the show properly, don't have any real comments yet other than being suspicious of the early finish of the womens match and then falling for it during the "announcement" of the title change. The crowd didn't give a single shit during the cruiserweight match so I'm glad that the women got some real love and that the crowd didn't shit on them.

Why have Charlotte win again .? They could have had Sasha retain she fucking put her all in that match and nearly broke her neck again and once again she gets shit on by one sided booking for Vince's sex toy.

I didn't get giving the belt to Charlotte either, homie has talent but it seems way too soon to give it back to her. Plus, who are they going to have her feud with? Aside Bayley, there aren't any other viable face opponents for her to play with.

Sasha vs Nia Jax could've at leat kept us going until they turned Sasha and prepped her for her eventual Mania showdown with a built up Bayley.

Octoner 18th is when it was first annoinced.

Charlotte won because they're investing in her streak. I feel that it's more meaningful for her streak to be broken if she's champ than if she's challenger. With the next PPV being Survivor Series and likely she won't defend her title, her next PPV defence will be in two months. Sasha will probably burn through her rematch before then, or she'll take time off to heal, Charlotte will gloat and brag leading up to Survivor Series, and then Sasha/Charlotte is renewed for whatever comes next.

I don't see Sasha turning heel. She's way too over as a babyface, and who else do they have besides Bayley as a babyface on that division?

So then if Charlotte is a part of team raw women's survivor series match she is going to win to keep her ppv streak intact

Her streak is for title matches. She lost that tag match against Bayley and Sasha earlier this year.

I'm nitpicking, but "closing the show" and "main event" haven't necessarily been the same thing in WWE for several years now. The main event opened the most recent Smackdown PPV and for two weeks they have advertised a "triple main event" for Hell in a Cell. It was never established which match would close. As I alluded to, dirtsheet sources (which are fairly accurate) never confirmed anything until the day of the show.

So yes, we knew that the women were a main event, but we also knew the US and Universal title matches were main events too.

The shows lead in to the pay per views, that's how the programming works. You can't expect people to talk about Raw and not talk about the pay per views that they are ALWAYS building towards. No one asks you to make these threads and you can't demand that people use them just because you decided to made them. If it upsets you that much that no one uses your PPV threads, then stop making PPV threads that clearly no one is asking for or needing.

I have made a bunch of threads on this forum. Some have gotten conversations going and people contributing, like the "Last show you watched" thread and the first "Best of the Best" tournament I held here way back, and sometimes, I've made a dud, like my thread about Orange is the New Black, because there just isn't many viewers of that show here. If no one decides to watch the show and use the thread, whatever, there's nothing I can do about it. I move on. Sitting here complaining about it isn't going to make people want to use this thread, or any other thread you have made that was totally ignored (the entire TNA board springs to mind) that you complained about people not using, in fact, it's going to make them want to use them even less.

Let's use a real world example here. Say you went to the mall. You don't feel like you have to buy one of every single item in the mall just because someone made them, do you? No, you buy the things you need to buy or want to buy. In this example, the Raw thread be like a store in the mall and your threads would be the stores around it. Just because you have a store doesn't mean that people have to go inside and it certainly doesn't mean they have to buy anything, especially if the Raw store already has all the things they need already and you're just selling one thing that the Raw store already sells. If you are outside your store complaining that no one is using your store, that is not going to make people want to go to your store. You have to give them a reason to want to go to your store and "Because I made this store" is not a good reason, because anyone can do that. You have to give people something they want or need that they can't get anywhere else. So, giving them a single thing that the Raw store next door already has (and more besides) is not going to do the trick. Especially not now, when we have so few posters as it is. If you can't do that, then opening the store might not be a very good idea.

Just because you can do something, doesn't mean that you should. It also doesn't mean that anyone has to use the thing.

To be fair, Nucks I did ask isrs to make the exclusive brand PPV threads...mostly to keep from having every single PPV getting it's own thread, but I did.

Just to clarify

Yeah the only thing i'd discuss about raw is the episode that just happen not about the ppv I know they talk about the matches heading
to the next ppv but it be cool if we just restart doing it here. I dont understand if nobody understands that exclusive meaning for raws only
ppvs but the smackdown ppv thread has hitted off good.

and

Fast Lane is the next ppv coming up for the Raw brand in march discuss it here hopefully

That's what you prefer to do. It's not what anybody else has to do. If they want to discuss everything going on with Raw, including the PPV's that they always build up to. That's up to each poster. There are not many users on the board as it is anymore and we're losing all but the core group to social media sites like Facebook and Twitter. If someone can keep conversation going in one thread about Raw and their PPV'S that they are always building towards, there is no reason to try to force people to start a new conversation here about one little part of a conversation that is already happening just because you made a new thread.

Stop trying to force it to happen here, participate in the conversations that are already going on and just be happy that we have what we have here these days.
