I watched Stomping Grounds.  It was fine, I guess.  PPVs are really just big monthly house shows these days.  The cruiserweight triple threat was pretty good, although I didn't have any interest in any of the performers and no one did enough to make themself stick out.

Joe/Ricochet was pretty good.  Reigns/McIntyre was decent, although I fucking loathe Shane McMahon constantly being presented as a bad ass.  

The main event did a good job of covering up Corbin's limited skills but I'm not sure it did much for Rollins.  

WWE's a pretty dead product right now, it seems (and attendance at RAW was said to be abysmally low.)

Seth Rollins has been in the news recently for comments defending Stomping Grounds & WWE - Rollins called WWE “the best pro wrestling on the planet” on his twitter. LOL 

IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champ Will Ospreay, regarded as one of the best wrestlers on the planet who isn’t signed to WWE, took exception to Rollins saying he was "the greatest in the world" and the two exchanged words about it. Now, Rollins has addressed Jon Moxley's criticism of WWE.

This is better drama than the writers come up with for RAW!!!

-C!

Rollins is just towing the company line.

But, given the choice, I'd watch just about any major wrestling fed other than Impact (and that includes Mexican and Japanese, if provided English commentary) over WWE. I am looking forward to AEW getting a tv show.

Impact is on my craplist due to having Michael Elgin on its roster. If you're curious why, all I can say is, look him up.

Paul Heyman will now be running the RAW brand, while Eric Bischoff will be in charge of SmackDown. Everything still presumably runs through Vince McMahon, but the move is an admission the product is stale, if not in some danger. With AEW entering the national wrestling market this fall, WWE doesn't want to lose even more of their market share over the teenage audience to the new brand in town.

AEW's last show was terrible, I hope they're working on a long term plan, otherwise they're not doing anything TNA isn't doing.  It can fade fast.

The only things I've heard negative about their last show were regarding the unprotected chair shots Cody took, and that they're pushing Shawn Spears, who wasn't exactly anything to write home about when he was in the WWE as Tye Dillinger. They claimed the chair Cody was hit with was gimmicked but something went wrong. Oh, something went wrong, alright. Considering he needed 12 surgical staples!

Chair shots should be banned, period.
