-Host Scott Stanford and the panel of David Otunga, Corey Graves, and Booker T checked in from WWE Headquarters in Stamford, Connecticut as a shot aired from inside the Resch Center in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

-Dean Ambrose, Cesaro, and Sami Zayn vs. Chris Jericho, Kevin Owens, and Alberto Del Rio in a six-man tag was announced for Raw.

-Roman Reigns will address the actions of Seth Rollins on Raw.

-Stanford addressed the news of Smackdown going live and played the video of Stephanie McMahon and Shane McMahon discussing which one of them should lead the brand. Stanford noted that Booker went through the original “brand expansion” and spoke with him about the move. He spoke about the unified title and said something about bigger paydays.

-The panel gave thoughts on who could run Smackdown. Otunga picked John Laurinaitis. Graves chose himself. “Breaking news, lean in here, guys, it won’t be me,” Booker said. He spoke about his run as general manager and said it’s like being the President.

-Stanford brought up the idea of bringing back the Hardcore Title. Otunga pitched having additional tag titles and another women’s championship.

Powell’s POV: Keep in mind that they are just throwing out ideas for fun, not telling viewers that these things are actually going to happen.

-The hosts discussed Charlotte kicking Ric Flair to the curb.

-Natalya vs. Dana Brooke was announced for Raw.

-The hosts discussed Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins. A portion of Roman’s sit-down interview from the WWE website was shown.

-The hosts delivered final hype for Raw to close the show.

Powell’s POV: Reigns is so much better in the sit-down setting. I have no idea why we don’t get more sit-downs with Reigns on the regular television shows.
