Well Booker T has been absolutely atrocious these last few weeks in particular. Just rambling, incomprehensible nonsense.

Can't believe Rousey has signed full time. Fair play to her.

Didn't think of much else outside the rumbles but those were some damn good rumbles. Finally giving some fan service and people going home happy.

NXT, bloody brilliant as always and I haven't even watched the last match yet.

God damn that woman’s rumble. I didn’t realise they had such a strong roster. Sasha’s Wonder Woman gear :wub:

Hmmn so I enjoyed the two rumbles. They were well planned and thought out with the exception of the winners. They were both so bloody obvious. Whilst they can’t always be unexpected or someone I want to win it always leaves you on a bit of a downer when it’s so obvious.

I was surprised that Owens didn’t also enter the rumble. Seemed a but strange that they only beat one person up.

The women’s rumble really showed how far women’s wrestling has come. Their overall ability is far better than 10 and 20 years ago.

Interesting about Rousey. I really don’t expect much from her promo wise though, I get the impression that she will be very weak on that front which could cause a few issues. I get the feeling that her standing with Asoka, Charlotte and Alexa may be a swerve and she may actually be facing Stephanie in some capacity, with triple h and the rock or maybe Shane. I know that’s an established rumour but I’m not sure she’s just jumping into the title picture.

Shame Bayley didn’t get a better run.

Too late now but http://watchwrestling.in/sports/wwe-19/ worked flawlessly (even chromecasting) when I stayed up and watched Raw 25 :dread: .Had about 6 different links.

Strange one. I wonder what for? He’s kind of old fashioned for the current product. But with all the shows and hours they have to fill I’m sure they’ll find a role for him commentating or backstage interviewing on one of their 47 shows.

He has a good rep for being a very hard worker, Matt Hardy also credits him for his creative and production work on the Broken Matt Hardy stuff.

New graphics for RAW last night; I presume there’s a new intro on the horizon in the coming weeks too.

Can’t believe they left Corey Graves appearing to almost say “blowjob” in the international edit. He couldn’t even keep a straight face back at the table. Bet Vince was saying something in his ear.

Who IN THE LOVE OF GOD thought these random, intrusive graphics on SmackDown were a good idea.

It’s like someone in production has only just discovered Snapchat exists.

During Nakamura's entrance they run "ROCKSTAR" across the screen.

During The Uso's in-ring promo whenever they said the word "locked down" a graphic of a jail cell door slamming played, which had the effect of making them look like a couple of ex convicts.

Image

Most of the backstage promos are now also being done on an iPhone, with piss poor lighting and therefore making everyone look 10 years older. The background also vanishes at the start and at the end, so their bodies are cut out and are freeze-framed against a blue backdrop.
