I'm old enough to remember when New Day was the hottest heel act in wrestling in a long, long time. Unfortunatley, when your heel act gets so hot that WWE turns you babyface, they take away all the edge that made you so popular to begin with. Why can't you just be the same act, except now directed towards heels?
Following last night's Raw setting up one of the shittiest Summerslams in recent history, hopefully Smackdown does something interesting.
We are LIVE from Philadelphia, PA, where the rabid fans of the city that gave birth to hardcore wrestling in ECW is sure to be HYPED for the bloodless, anti-septic X-Tr3mE inter-gender and handicap matches!
So we have INTER-GENDER ACTION on tap, which is so X-TR3ME that it feels like WWE Extreme Rules, live this Sunday at 7:00 ET exclusively on the WWE Network has come early! Notes and thoughts from "Cowboy" Bob as he watches...
In a weird way, it's kind of a testament to New Day that they've gone all the way from "UGH these jobbers" to "Hey, these guys are pretty good!" to "Wow, New Day are the hottest heels in WWE!" to "Is New Day the greatest tag team of all-time?" to "Wow, New Day literally was given the longest reign in WWE history. They are truly the best." to "Okay, this is getting a little stale" to "UGH it's fucking NEW DAY." It's come full circle. Pretty impressive really.
A common refrain across the internet is that WWE has "messed up" with Bayley. This is a universally accepted narrative in professional wrestling. Bayley is MONEY. How does WWE not see that?! The kids should love her! She's so likable! I find this to be unequivocally false.
