Cedric was 225-230 when he was in ROH. Which is where I first saw him 

Never thought he'd make it to WWE. And if they hadn't started 205 Live he probably wouldn't have. He's very good in the ring. But boring on the mic. When he turned heel in ROH, Veda Scott did the talking for him

The Network recently added a block of 1980-1981 (WWF) All-Star Wrestling shows to the Vault.

I don't have the Network in front of me, but have they done anything to the "Old School" regional show buckets, lately? MSG, Maple Leaf, LA Sports Coliseum, etc. Full disclosure: I have about 20-30 DVDs of old WWE 24/7 "old school" shows; that have not surfaced on the Network; that I'd like to to toss!

I just checked the "Old School" page. Nope. Nothing new since the launch.

So Drake Maverick  is now the manager of AOP 

While he is the face GM of 205 Live 

So does he turn heel as GM?
Or is he a heel manager on Raw and face GM on 205 Live?

He's very good on the mic. So putting him with AOP is smart.

Feels like a "because WCW" moment. I honestly have no answer since I haven't watched 205 Live for a few weeks.


I'm watching NXT and is there a reason Wesley Blake and Dawkins are still on the roster? Both have been in NXT forever. Dawkins feels like he's along for the ride with Montez Ford, and the "Forgotten Sons" feels like it's ceiling is JTTS level on the main roster.

"Forgotten Sons" seems almost identical to "The Social Outcasts". Are the Sons supposed to be bikers? Cuz' that did wonders for Aces & Eights.

I'm curious and hoping to watch 205 Live, this week, just to see if AoP are acknowledged on there. If so, then our old prediction about AoP becoming "silent enforcers for whoever the authority figure is" would be accurate.

Drake Maverick being with The Authors of Pain just makes me miss Paul Ellering. 
What "World of Warcraft" players see when they're not playing.....

Ellering is too old in WWEs eyes for the main roster

Not saying I agree. But that's how they feel

AOP is overrated anyway. At least based on the buzz they had in NXT 
Their matches bore me

They went from working with DIY all the time to Titus and Apollo... I'm thinking DIY carried them a lot better. :D

Hot take: NXT is better than Raw, so wrestlers appear better in NXT and worse on Raw. The "overrated" thing can be chalked up to comparing 15-20 min matches in front of a hot crowd with 3-8 minute matches in front of a dead crowd.
