It was alright, but Ishii/Suzuki and ZSJ/Naito were better in case you didn't watch those

Jericho match was good, dunno why so many people are moaning about it. Bit weird that EVIL just tapped out though. Wrestle Kingdom card is looking not bad so far.

Takahashi vs Omega
Okada vs Jay White
Jericho vs Naito
Goto vs Ospreay

Anyone who watched Crown Jewel deserves the pile of gooseberry fool they served up.

Power Struggle was really good other than Lord Taichi losing his belt :(

That's alright, as long as it leads to the Ibushi v Ospreay match that it originally should have been, at some point down the line.

The crowd reaction to Zack Gibson on episode 2 of NXT UK is amazing.

I LOVED Jericho vs. EVIL. It was my favourite match on the card. The Tag League final was ace too. I wish Bushi and Takagi had won it though. Takagi is becoming one of my favourites in such a short space of time. Enjoyed the whole show. Such a blessing after Crown Jewel. :lol:

Strangely, they're having the same match for the Junior Tag Titles again at the Dome. Kind of makes the tag league pointless :lol:

Spoiler from RAW in Manchester tonight:

They’ve put the tag belts on the Authors of Pain after defeating Seth Rollins in a handicap match.

Someone post the botchamania episode with crown jewel when it gets made. Sounds like it has the makings of a classic.

I have no idea what the attendance actually was but why post pics of the crowd an hour before the event starts? Just makes it look like you are trying to fake a story. If there were only 5,000 there then wait for the event to start and take some photos of the empty areas then.

I’m not doubting that attendances are down, I had an email last week offering floor seats for just over £30 each for the Birmingham house show. They were the last few rows but I believe these seats would normally be a hell of a lot more than that. Incidentally I went to the Birmingham house show in May which took place on the same night as the SD tapping in London and the NEC was a near sell out. So it shows how bad interest in the UK must have fallen since May.

I think there’s probably two reasons for that: a poor product, and an over-saturation of the market. WWE has been here a lot this year (the RAW side flew over I think in August or September just to do a house show in London), on top of all the other wrestling promotions taking place. There’s more NXT UK tapings to come later this month too in Liverpool.

It could also be a rebuke to Crown Jewel, the name of which amusingly wasn’t uttered on RAW once (it became “this past Friday on the WWE Network”).

It's certainly a change for when I tried to get tickets back in 2000-01, and they sold out within minutes.

I looked at two tickets for the UK tournament at the Albert Hall, but at £50+ for decent seats each, that was too much for my liking.

Apparently Shane McMahon vs. Brock Lesnar is being talked about.

Lesnar having to sell those punches.

That's ridiculous. Brock's whole gimmick is that he is a legit MMA monster and if they want to continue to book him in that manner he should be nearly killing Shane.

What a waste. However, I am really looking forward to Brock vs AJ, last years match was fantastic.
