Thankfully recovered after last nights Mania, really enjoyed it. Not quite the "Best Mania ever" that I've seen mentioned but definitely a heck of a lot better than I was expecting. Main event was match of the night, Lesnar looked like such a monster. Booking was great and when Rollin's came out and then won, I was just:

Can't believe Trips won his match! I really thought Sting was going take this so he could have his Mania moment. The match was all over the place but I enjoyed it enough and thought Sting was in great shape.

Rusev's entrance was fantastic while HHH's was both great and awful at the same time.

Cena pulled off a new move!

Curb stomp/RKO :shock: :shock: Seth worked that so well.

Also, thanks so much for the Wrestling Observer podcast Maf!

This quote made me :lol:

What a man.

New wrestling thread :wub: :wub:

Me and my mate both exclaimed when that happened. Hall looks like a big bump could honestly kill him.

I'm fairly surprised Nash didn't tear his quad a couple of times last night as well.

Considering how lousy the build has been this year the show exceeded all expectations, and nothing at all stank the joint out. Well, apart from maybe the musical interlude but that was over quickly.

Sounds like the NXT Takeover specials will now be monthly rather than every 2-3 months!

That is the surprising thing, build was so poor but in spite of that it turned out more than ok.

I'm all for more NXT specials at this point. Hopefully they get a match at next years Mania or at least a big Mania special which will be on the network.

1.3m Network subscribers, imagine quite a few signed up just for WM. Extreme Rules is going to be free as well.

Wouldn't mind a Lesnar/Reigns/Rollins 3-way at Extreme Rules. Hopefully Sting is still kicking about and isn't done now hes had a WM match, would like a rematch.

It was a great move, but made no sense whatsoever seeing as Orton shouldn't have been able to lift him there.

Cena beating Rusev was the low point for me. They should build new guys rather than have them all lose to the old ones. Wish to God Taker would say something too - he looed in great shape last night as a sidenote.

A complete run down of all the new programming heading to the WWE Network over the coming months:

WWE Press wrote:WWE Network Partners with Seth Green, Jerry Springer and Jeff Tremaine on Three New Original Series .

STAMFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

In addition to the premium monthly live pay-per-view events, WWE Network unveiled new programming for the remainder of 2015, which includes eight brand new original series and partnerships with director Jeff Tremaine, Seth Green’s Stoopid Buddy Stoodios and legendary talk show host Jerry Springer.

NEW ORIGINAL SERIES:

CAMP WWE – COMING LATE 2015
WWE, in partnership with Seth Green’s Stoopid Buddy Stoodios, will debut a new, animated short-form comedy series entitled Camp WWE. Imagine WWE Superstars and Divas when they were kids at their favorite summer camp…which happens to be run by none other than Mr. McMahon – add in shock-value, slapstick humor and social satire – and you have WWE’s first adult comedy, which will debut later this year.

"We're insanely excited about this collaboration,” said Green. “WWE is one of the most heartfelt and professional organizations I've worked with. We're beyond happy to help them realize this vision.”

SWERVED – COMING IN MAY
WWE teams up with the Director of Jackass and Bad Grandpa, Jeff Tremaine, to give you the hilarious original series, Swerved. Swerved is a half hour series and will premiere in May.

“I’m excited to combine my brand of entertainment with the world of WWE,” said Tremaine. “It will be the ultimate mash-up.”

DIVA SEARCH – COMING THIS FALL
WWE spans the globe in search of the most beautiful, athletic and charismatic women to find the next stunning WWE Diva. This competition will give viewers the opportunity to witness the challenges, trials, drama and rewards that accompany the journey of these women, as they vie for superstardom. Coming this Fall.

JERRY SPRINGER PRESENTS WWE TOO HOT FOR TV – COMING IN APRIL
Hosted by legendary talk show host Jerry Springer, this series will re-introduce the WWE Universe to the most outrageous stunts and cringe-inducing moments in TV history. The series will be chock full of insane situations and racy romps from WWE’s past that will have members of the WWE Universe asking, “Did they really do this?!” Springer will inject his own brand of humor into each episode with themes such as “Love Hurts,” “All in the Family” and “Weddings and Funerals.”

The half-hour series will be available beginning in April in WWE Network’s video-on-demand library with new episodes weekly.

"I suspect 25 years of The Jerry Springer Show qualifies me to comment on outrageous behavior,” said Springer. “And what is more outrageous than the entertainment, drama and craziness of the WWE. This is going to be fun."

LIVE! WITH CHRIS JERICHO – DEBUTS MONDAY, APRIL 6 WITH SPECIAL GUEST JOHN CENA
Podcast host Chris Jericho challenges his guests in provocative, candid conversations about their careers, their lives, past controversies and the overall state of WWE. The monthly series kicks off Monday, April 6 immediately following Raw, with its first one-hour episode featuring WWE Superstar John Cena.

“I’m stoked to bring my show to WWE Network and give Jerichoholics worldwide more of what they've come to expect - humor, questions that have never been asked before and the best conversations that any podcast host has ever delivered,” said Jericho. “No matter who the guest is, whether it be WWE Superstars, Divas, Legends, executives or icons from the entertainment world, I guarantee to deliver the best, most entertaining interview you have ever heard from each and every one of them."

UNFILTERED: WITH RENEE YOUNG – DEBUTS IN MAY
WWE announcer Renee Young interviews WWE Superstars and other pop-culture celebrities, covering just about everything, except what they are famous for. In this short-form series, Renee's guests include Grammy Award winner Wiz Khalifa, five-time Grammy nominee Skylar Grey and WWE Superstars Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins. Unfiltered will debut in May.

CULTURE SHOCK: WITH COREY GRAVES – PREMIERING IN JUNE
WWE commentator Corey Graves reveals a variety of unique venues, customs, music, food and people as WWE’s tour travels around the world. From Marvel comic headquarters to a tattoo shop on the lower east side of Manhattan, Graves examines the local culture with his unique perspective and style. This short-form series will premiere in June.

WWE THE LIST – COMING IN JUNE
WWE The List is the best, the worst, the most bizarre and interesting of everything and anything WWE. If it’s amazing, outrageous, sexy or just plain fun, it just made #TheList.

NEW EPISODES:

In addition to the eight new original series, WWE Network will also debut new episodes of the highly-acclaimed docu-series WWE 24 as well as WWE Countdown and Rivalries. WWE will also add more children’s programming by bringing back the popular 1980s animated series, Hulk Hogan’s Rock ‘N’ Wrestling. In addition, WWE Network will produce compelling specials and short form content, while continuing to add 1,000 hours to its robust video-on-demand library, which currently has more than 3,000 hours of content.

The acclaimed 30-minute docu-series takes you on a lightning-fast journey through a day in the life of WWE’s most intriguing Superstars and groundbreaking events.

They need to make the WWE 24 program longer than 30 minutes.

Weird to see him shake HHH's hand too considering he is trying to 'stop him' from something or other.

The handshake was bizarre, especially after Michaels hit Sting with the SCM and then HHH clocked him with a sledgehammer. Then HHH was out in the ring again a couple of hours later teasing his match with the Rock next year. I hope that wasn't Sting's one match - he looked in much better shape than I could have predicted.

I'm interested in what happens to Wyatt now because I have no idea where he can go from this loss. Apart from disappear for a few months.

One good thing was the matches didn't feel too long, and they were mainly about the same length.

90ish minutes of wrestling though on a 4 hour show is very poor.

I'd have made the Rock's part much shorter (or cut it - he can't keep showing up every year) added some interviews and cut that crappy rapper. Should have been less entrance time too - the entrances went on forever.

The event was decent all that said. It's a Mania I could easily watch again; might even watch it tonight.

The funniest part had to be Taker's look when Bray kicked out of the Tombstone. Hope a gif of that is going about. :lol:
