My plan was to lay low on the current booking of WWE programming lately, but after watching the October 10 edition of Raw, I have more questions than answers. I should probably just let it play out, but here are some of my problems with this angle.
When Triple H first came out and relieved Vince McMahon of his duties, he became the Chief Operating Officer of all of the WWE, right? So why did the walk out from October 3 not have an impact on Friday Night SmackDown!? I don't like how they explained it with Teddy Long being in charge of SmackDown! Because if I remember correctly, the working conditions there were unsafe too, with Mark Henry attacking several wrestlers and an audio guy.

Okay, I'm finally watching SmackDown! from Friday night, and the explanation by Wade Barrett, David Otunga, Christian, and Dolph Ziggler makes sense to me, but I still think the whole premise of the angle is weak. This is wrestling, of course you're going to face dangers and risks. I think by having most of the roster walk about last week, it made them look weak. Did you hear the boos they received? It almost seems like this was just a way to get Triple H back into the ring.
But I'm not going to pass too much judgment on the angle. Yet. I will make this early prediction. I bet Laurinaitis was on the phone with Stephanie McMahon Monday night. I'm sure she's going to get involved in this somehow.
In closing, I think they introduced too many changes last night. The walk out ended, Triple H gets fired, Miz & R-Truth rehired, JR canned, Laurinaitis takes over, Vince returns on camera. It's a lot to digest. But I think they're trying to squeeze it all in before Survivor Series in a month.
