I too would like to see that. Has the Ric Flair one been on yet?

Will have to stop watching WCW on the Network soon as I've almost reached 1998 and they still haven't uploaded Thunder yet. All the B and C shows like Pro, Main Event and Saturday Night missing too. Dunno what's taking them so long, though they have uploaded another 150 hours of SmackDown.

I'd like to see Heat added too, stuff actually happened on it when it first started and a lot of them were basically pre shows to PPVs too.

Also still no native Chromecast support on phones (not counting tab casting as "support"). I'd use it way more if I could watch at night before I sleep.

They said last June they would be adding in Chromecast support and they've still done strawberry float all. It's the only streaming app I use that doesn't support that.

I used to really enjoy watching heat when it first started. It really helped push storylines for the mid carders and was a brilliant way of building up interest in the ppvs by serving the same purpose as the preshows now.

We got special versions of both Shotgun Saturday Night and Heat so I would like to see the genuine versions at long last - Shotgun began life from various night clubs around New York in 1997 and Heat during the first Tough Enough season came from WWF New York with Michael Cole, Taz and Lita on MTV.

Heat in 1998/99 was basically an extra hour of RAW, though it only occasionally made the highlights on the morning Sky 1 shows.

I've still got about 6 VHS tapes somewhere with tons of the episodes of Heat from channel 4. It was always matches with the absolute bottom-tier wrestlers or tag team wrestlers doing singles matches, plus the highlights from Raw and Smackdown which was handy since I didn't have Sky.

Oh Christ, they're actually going to put the title on Goldberg vs Lesnar. It'll probably main event too :fp:

Yep, it's a shame as the match doesn't need it, I would much rather KO kept the title and we had a title v title match at wrestlemania, not that I actually want KO and Jericho to break up, you stupid idiot.

I can only assume that Goldberg was promised a title run when he signed his contract. It's interesting that Goldberg can just walk down to the ring and demand a title match and get it when Stephanie told him that he had to the win the Royal rumble to earn a title shot.

I'm fine with Goldberg getting the title, but it's obviously leading to Lesnar winning it at Mania and Reigns winning it off him.

Thing is we're still yet to see Goldberg have a proper match. Is Goldberg also going to run through Owens in 2 minutes?

I'd be shocked if he didn't

It's a shame they turned Owens into a comedy heel rather than the total badass he was in NXT, but his storyline with Jericho has been the best thing about Raw since they became s team.

I'm confident it will be a good match. Owens showed on Raw last week that he is good at bumping all over the place and having the energy to carry a big man to a reasonable match.

I'm confident that owens could put on a good match with him but I expect that it will be a squash match. They will probably extend it slightly by having Jericho involved at the start but ultimately I think that it will probably be about one minute long.

That's a GRAPL question sorted then: Will the match last longer than two minutes?

I don't know if it's that much of a done deal that Goldberg will win, Lesnar could cost him the title, it'd add to their feud and be better than the 2 of them just being on every second Raw talking shite for the next 2 months. Although logically it would make more sense for Lesnar to F5 Owens to make sure Goldberg wins so that his already confirmed match would be for the title. Logic was never WWE's strong point though :slol: It would be pretty cool if they brought Austin back to referee the 2 again also!

What was with the banana in Austin Aries jacket pocket on Raw?! :lol: I just watch the hilights on youtube so I may have missed something.

When he first showed up in NXT he was always eating a banana backstage for some reason and always kept one in his pocket when he was on commentary or whatever :lol:
