If only Triple H himself was ever that good. Not even taking the piss, he had a great run back in the late 90's/early 00's but he benefitted massively from being matched with a series of greats.

Whatculture are now trying paid videos on their youtube channel. I don't begrudge them trying to earn money and pay for what they do but this kind of thing will kill them off.

I believe the paid for videos are what is available on their whatculture extra channel but instead of paying a monthly fee you can pay per video. It's not something that interests me though, I will never pay for something like that.

I have a theory that wait for it, Kevin Owens will retain his title on Sunday with the help of HHH and Samoa Joe. However I'm too much of a wuss to change my grapl pick.

That would be fantastic, Owens going into Mania as champ and an actual story for Goldberg other than he and Lesnar want to fight each other just because would be better for everyone.

Saw a DVD cover on Twitter for Fastlane that completely ruins two surprises. Worth avoiding twitter or wrestling news sites if you don't want it spoiled. Not that it's much of a surprise, but Taker and Lesnar are on the cover, neither of which have matches. Interference-a-go-go for Mania build up. :dread:

Could have predicted both of those anyway since what happened at the Rumble. Still pretty careless of them. Unless they meant to leak it to get people to watch! :shifty:

Previously that could have been the case but now they don't get sufficient ppv revenue they don't need to be that worried about how many people are watching live.

This brings me onto something I was thinking about the other day. Why don't WWE try a ppv on a Saturday? Previously a PPV would be better off on a Sunday evening as more people are at home compared to a Saturday or Friday night but now they get very little ppv revenue they could move them to Saturdays and this allows more people around the world the chance to stay up and watch it live. Plus they have Sunday to catch up with it on the network instead of school or work the next day. Quite often I don't watch live and think I will catch it after work on Monday but then read the results and don't bother.

Booker calling Tom Phillips a 'dirty birdy'. :lol: Is that in reference to the affair that was leaked recently, or some in joke I'm missing?

WCW and WWE have done PPVs on different nights in the past (Road Wild was Saturday, Tuesday in Texas/Taboo Tuesday, Survivor Series on Thursday) so I don't know why they don't try more outside of NXT specials. Different start times should allow for more international events too.

Yeah, that was a jibe at Phillips' sexting debacle.

Jinder is definitely on the juice.

He was chatting to some girl through iMessage or whatever and he sent her pics of his dick, and said he was going to "face strawberry float the gooseberry fool out of her" while on a plane...problem is he's engaged. So this woman went on her Instagram page and outed him by uploading the screen grabs and possibly his pics too.

I don't know why celebrities or those in the public eye keep falling for this gooseberry fool.

Yeah I understand why they settled on Sunday nights when it was all about ppv revenue but now I think Saturday nights would be best and also I know I've said it many times before but there's no reason now not to do a ppv in the uk as it doesn't matter what time it airs in the US anymore.
