I do like how WWE continually get away with saying "wanker" on their supposed PG programming.

Americans don't seem to get the term wanker. They even said it on the Simpsons a few years ago. They seem to think that it's just a British insult and don't realise that it's considered a rude insult.

Padding out the roster/adding a little star power I presume.

Yeah I get that's what they are doing but the uk talent seem to be mostly cruiserwieights already so you would think that they would have bought over some bigger (size wise) talent.

Even knowing the outcome of the 2 main matches because they spoiled it on an episode of NXT 2 weeks ago, that was still a really enjoyable watch. Bodes well for the weekly UK shows.

How long was that UK thing on WWE Network last night? Wondering if I'll be able to fit it in before the Blacklash pre-show tomorrow. I wish the network would list a running time before you start watching something.

Thanks, that's a big help!

I'm looking forward to Takeover tonight, I should be back before the show starts, but I'll miss most of the pre-show. Looking forward to Itami and Roode in particular.

First snafu of the night. The (orange) referee blatantly saw that outside interference which would have been a DQ any other day of the week.

Hot crowd though, as you'd expect.

Well deserved win for Strong.

Bit of a strange card though, no Ohno or Black.

That reaction for Jim Ross in itself elevating the importance of this UK match.

A "UK" chant in Chicago. I guess there's a first for everything.
