New Title

Hello Scott, Check the time this lands so you know I am Nostradamus. Its a fucking TV title to justify 21 more wild cards a week, Cause Vince  Duly noted.  I'm still thinking a revival of the Hardcore title so they do 24/7 rules via Twitter videos or whatever.

AEW = The new WcW?

Scott, So AEW loses the Pac vs Hangman Page match due to "creative differences" and Jericho recently said AEW allows for more creative freedom, but they "Don't have a Vince McMahon."  Is this a bad sign?
