    Not watching because I'm still pissed off at WWE for killing The Fiend. Also fuck the blood money. Good for him winning the belt but it's a month too late. Lesnar vs Cain looked atrocious, but that might be because I watch MMA all the time so it especially looked bad to me
    Yeah, the Lacey / Natalya thing is such a shallow gesture and save face at best.
    Everything will surely be alright.

    It’s actually a pretty big deal let’s not just gloss over it.

    No.

    It's a glorified PR stunt to distract from and save face from the whole ordeal. This is still dirty money at the very best. One step forward and five steps back does not warrant praise for the one step forward.
    Over a dozen Women activists in Saudi Arabia were jailed shortly1 before the Saudi King had dropped the ban on women driving. Many of these women have been fighting for these rights in the country decades, including Loujain al-Hathloul, ranked 3rd in the Top 100 Most Powerful Arab Women 2015 by Arabian business Magazine2.

    Both Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch have issued statements, saying that many of these women have been tortured3 and they have been taken to court under the premise of the country's cyber-crimes laws, in which they were not given lawyers and the press was not allowed in1.


    It's fine to be excited for what seems some sort of progress but any kind of progress must be put into context and that the women who fought for fundamental rights in Saudi Arabia where jailed before any of these changes where made, must show that what we see is progress is nothing more but a PR show that we know WWE is part of.



    Everything will surely be alright.

    Sakura is bang on the money. Aye, good for Lacey & Natalya, they shouldn't get heat for this, but just because ONE women's match where they wrestled in your nans sweater, doesn't mean we should sit back and give WWE a big ol pat on the back. This is a PR move to try and justify these shitty shows. Nothing more. Fuck them.

    Yep.

    I mean, good for them. I praise it, and am glad they got to do it. But this doesn't forgive or gloss over any injustices. And this doesn't change it for what it is.

    Or the issues that are continuing to go on in Saudi.
    Everything will surely be alright.

    I understand that but I’m just looking for positives at this point. Also doesn’t make me feel great that someone threw a water bottle at Natalya as she walked down the isle. Blah

    Fair enough. It's okay to be an optimist and look at the plus side, and I know for Natty and Lacey that was huge to them. Disgusting someone threw a bottle at her, though. Very disrespectful.
    Everything will surely be alright.

    So Cain Vs Brock. Pretty fucking awful right? 2 minutes of standing around doing nothing, Cain visibly unable to take a bump, then about 10 seconds of action and Cain TAPS OUT in his first match. Then gets beaten up after the match to the point where Rey Mysterio is the bad ass taking it to Brock and saving Cain. This whole angle started with Cain coming to Rey's aid and being the badass to step up to Brock, and now we've gone 180. I don't use this word often, but Cain got buried. WTF was all that about.
