Thinking about watching something Vader related this weekend, not sure what though.


In Your House: Final Four is a good one.

Reading on Twitter that Cass grabbed Carmella and the Usos and Erick Rowan had to step in and sort him out and that's why he didn't get his best wishes in his future endeavours.

I think I remember that actually! Good shout. I was tempted to watch that SummerSlam match where Michaels had apparently refused to put him over, and shouted something at him mid-match. I remember it being a good match despite everything that was clearly going on behind the scenes.

Watching that In Your House Final Four. The late nineties were an amazing period for Wrestling. Lawler saying, 'You shouldn't hit a Woman with glasses... you should use your fist'. :lol: Can you imagine one of the announce team dropping that line these days?

We’re him and Carmella still an item or had they broken up before that?

Watching the UK Tournament on the Network and everyone seems so small compared to their US counterparts. Great wrestling though. Small crowd doing their best to keep the noise up.

Yeah that was a lot of fun. Hope NXT UK has the same atmosphere around it.

A lot of familiar faces from the World of Sport special and 5Star Wrestling. A lot of footage being used from various UK indies throughout.

I noticed also on the Network is Brother Love’s podcast talking about AJ Styles’ career in TNA.

Kevin Owens - for a guy the company sometimes seems to back, he doesn't half job out a lot. Looks like he'll be laying down for Braun next. I don't get it.

Anyone seen Paul Heymans Facebook post on Brock. That's the best written promo I have seen in some time. I like this idea that Brock only shows up for the money. To me it elevates the title that it only gets defended on special occasions.

Should be one of the top monster heels like he was in NXT rather than the cowardly geek act they've had him doing. Zayn has two torn rotator cuffs and it sounds like he's going to be out for a long time so that sucks.

Interesting, I thought Jacobs was just nominated a the republican candidate for a mayor in Knoxville. Maybe there’s quite a gap before the actual election.

On Bryan they seem to have deliberately taken the wind out of his sails. And with the reformation of team hell no it’s like they have hit reset with him. I’m sure he will be in the main even scene and win the title at some point but by then I wonder if people will have lost interest in him.

Maybe they’ll bring back the psychologist or anger management guru or whatever he was as well. Feels like a step backwards. Or worse Kane turns heel on him and that’s one of the main midcard feuds for the summer...

I get the impression Johnny Saint is going to be another Mike Adamle when it comes to live promos. He doesn’t appear to be overly familiar with the product.

“Four Way Fatal”. Surprised they didn’t have that redubbed.

Can't shake the feeling that the promo will be the best thing about it.

One of the main things i struggle with on UK tv wrestling shows is the commentary. Whoever it is just doesn't seem to have the right voice for me.
Maybe it's years of American accents on WWE, that said though Lord Alfred Hayes was excellent. I could probably cope with Wade Barrett (Stu Bennett) on commentary though, obviously he's the GM so that's not happening.

Have they confirmed who'll be taking part (other than the video)? Couldn't find anything.
