After that absolutely horrible ending to HIAC which followed the universally hated ending of the Smackdown debut on Fox, has WWE just handed AEW fans on a silver platter?

If they did, AEW has handed over 450,000 of them back.  Seriously, it was a horrible finish but it probably didn’t drive all that many fans away.  WWE has had a lot of bad booking over the last few years.

What is the contract status of Tessa Blanchard?  She would be a great addition to the high end of the WWE women’s division. 

She is signed with Impact Wrestling and is happy there right now.

So I'm reading the Q&A about Kofi looking bad in losing in 6 seconds... To be honest, while I hated it happened, it's not what bothered me. What bothered me is that Kofi didn't even acknowledge it the following week. It's almost like he forgot he was a WWE champion and it was still New Day having fun.  What do you make of it? Should we forget he was WWE champion?

WWE creative does what it does.  It tells its stories in its own way.  It’s up to you to forgot or remember what you choose to.  But I disagree with you, the loss was way worse than the lack of acknowledgement to me.  I saw the bad loss with my eyes.  What could he really say after the fact?  He was clearly destroyed and pushed down the card.  What could he say about that?

Can you think of a worse finish for the HIAC main event? I just knew WWE would book themselves into a corner with Seth and Wyatt. A DQ finish for a cell match? Are you kidding me? That was one of the biggest cop-outs I've seen in quite some time, and that includes Brock murdering Kofi in five seconds.

I can, like Vince Russo putting the WCW Title on David Arquette for example. The finish of HIAC was bad, but I can think of worse.  I hated Brock destroying Kofi more, because it killed a guy.  

Can you see this biting Seth in the ass in terms of his standing with fans? The fans in the arena were PISSED when he started doing the Stomp train and they didn't let up, even after he brought out every weapon save for the kitchen sink.

Maybe.  Fans like to blame the wrestler for Vince McMahon’s bad booking.  Just ask Roman Reigns about that.
