Yeah, it didn't work with 205 in between SD and TS, but it had some great moments, so I don't know...talking shows like this can actually help a feud and make the network a bit more relevant.

Just as planned.

Everybody with any kind of brainpower knew that 205 should've gone on before Smackdown as that benefits all 3 shows.

But obviously Vince couldn't have that.

i'd accept it if dbry is out.
he was always shooting shit because he didn't want to be around and out of the contract.
he wasn't on the last week so if he's done with the show i'd accept they cancel it.

I'm unshamefully self-admittedly seething and boiling upon learning that Talking Smack is now in the same status as Raw Talk. Raw fucking Talk.

Also, fans who were indifferent about 205Live are now despising it. So yeah, basically they killed 2 shows in a shot.

She can go to any station and be a broadcaster there. She was almost headhunted and only because she is in love with Dean she stayed.

WWE is lucky they are getting married, otherwise they would have lost her.

Barely a year and they can't even pretend that Smackdown isn't the B- show anymore

>>2877346
why audition if you're going to stay?
i doubt she was picked up but maybe when her contract is up she will leave.
she's better than the rest of the other interviewers but maybe her leaving would lead to less scripted promos hopefully

Smackdown is shit anyways. The superstar shake-up and Road Dogg have completely murdered a once enjoyable show.

NXT and 205 Live should have been cancelled instead.

>"We continuously review WWE Network’s programming line-up based on a variety of factors, including viewership and subscriber research."

The rest of the world actually has a WWE Network channel on their cable subscription so they pretty have to sit through 205 live to watch TS...or DVR it. Either way I don't believe the numbers are too good for TS. And maybe WWE think we will start watching 205 live now?

>Durr no one watched it on the network

This 19 minute show is not supposed to garner viewer numbers on your shit stream service. Its entire existence is to give the wrestlers a chance to develop character and if a promo is good enough it gets shared enough on social media and fills air time for smackdown if a promo was good enough to be shown again.

Talking smack shouldn't even have a fucking budget. Get one steady wide master shot and one wrestler to hold a camera. Dont even have the set just have some chairs and table
