Renee Young has a terrible voice for commentary. I think someone like Beth Phoenix could probably do a better job.

So that red cell for HIAC. I think that will be massively distracting personally.

I find it too high pitched and screechy when the ‘action is getting hot’. I really enjoy listening to her on the pre shows though. She’s a good host and holds old discussions. It’s the same with any female I’ve heard commentate on football. The pitch is all wrong. However I can listen to women all day long on a number of sports, tennis, many Olympic sports etc

I also wish she would use the phrase ‘oh my’ a lot less.

Will be interesting to see how it comes across on TV, because the Cell largely avoided the traps of other gimmick contraptions which are difficult to film and distracting. And then there’s the live crowd to consider.

Although I’m sure it will be fine filming wise as the cell doesn’t tend to get in the way for that. It looks a bit distracting for a live crowd to see through it.

At this point they should write HELL on the side of it.

strawberry float man... Easily the best Orton or Hardy match I've seen for a couple of years. So many spots looked brutal. No idea if the end was a work or not... Hope he's okay.

Finally! Let's hope she doesn't lose it in the rematch.

Can't believe how good HIAC has been so far. It's gotta be all downhill from here though. All the matches I was looking forward to most have happened.

Well that was unexpected... Brock looked damn good too. In much better shape than when we last saw him. Between him, Rollins and co, they salvaged such a non-entity of a match. The card died a death after Styles vs. Joe.

Charlotte will probably win it again in their first rematch on Smackdown.

Wouldn't be the first time Brock Lesnar featured in a really shitty PPV finish, I remember against The Undertaker at Unforgiven 2002 it pissed everyone off as well.

When you're making a really big deal of Foley flying off the Cell and the match carrying on, and selling the current match on the basis of having no outside interference, it sure does look ridiculous when your current Cell encounter ends in a non-finish because Lesnar apparently kicked too much arse.

Apart from Foley actually counting 3 at one point (if they were sensible that needs to play into a storyline because Strowman clearly won), what was the point of him being in there?

Strowman and Reigns having to sell their injuries for what felt like 10 minutes because everyone was brawling outside made them look weak too.

Not quite the finish of a PPV but his almost main event level match with Goldberg at WMXX was an absolute disgrace of a finish if I remember rightly, too.

Unsurprisingly, that's been scrubbed right off the WMXX DVD and any subsequent releases by WWE.

By current WWE standards the Orton/Hardy match was actually pretty brutal, especially that screwdriver to the ear spot. That was quite uncomfortable to watch.

No idea how people keep up with NJPW. Sat down to watch Saturday's Destruction In Hiroshima tonight, and apparently there must have been another event this morning too. By the time I get a chance to watch that, no doubt there'll be more.

I absolutely love Naito. He's got this bungling bad influence Uncle look, but is a dangerous Mother strawberry floater.

Just watch Naito vs. Suzuki from today's show, great main event.

Suzuki is legit terrifying, in the ring and out. He hits Naito in today's match with some of the loudest forearms to the face I've ever heard (even for him) :dread:
