I hadn't noticed how small Charly Caruso is until she was standing next to Bayley. She's got to be less than 5'4.

And wow was Bayley hated in Canada last night.

John Cena going epically off script and owning Baron Corbin on SD...

"You're a skinny fat loudmouth overrated dumpster fire.” *points to sign in the crowd*

Only way that could have been worse is if he said that's why he now wears a shirt or criticised his receding hairline.

Only Cena and a few others could get away with something like that.

The WWE champion shouldn't be losing random matches on Smackdown.

Has there ever been a Summerslam card which has ever looked so weak on paper than this years card?

SummerSlam 1993, 1994 and 1995 were all pretty bloody awful to be honest, saved by 1 match 3 times.

But then none of them were 6 hours+ in length...

The Kick-Off has been extended to 2 hours again, though I don't think the in-ring action will begin until 11pm.

I hate how they're all basically singles/regular matches. One of the worst things about this era is the overabundance of those. God forbid we get some variation.

11 matches and 9 are plain singles matches. That's not boring at all.

The Rollins/Ambrose stuff going on at the moment is excellent I have to say. Nice, simple storytelling. Much better than the illegitimate son bollocks.

Have to keep those gimmick matches for those gimmick PPVs!! It's one of the main reasons the writers are so lazy these days, they don't have to come up with a reason for 2 guys to have a hell in a cell match, they just know it will happen anyway in October. I can't wait until "WWE Punjabi Prison" becomes a PPV!

Evolution of the bull.
After 3 sessions and 22hrs of tattooing with world renowned @NikkoHurtado, the story's almost done.. Every detail is a reflection of my own personal history.
From the cracks and heavy damage in the bone representing life's hard lessons I've learned over the years. Just like scars and wrinkles - I'm so grateful to have 'em because they're earned.
To the horns, not pointing up or out to the side, but pointing straight ahead representing relentless energy and forward progress.
The core and anchor of this image is in the eye. Look closely and you'll find the life, energy, power and you'll feel the MANA (spirit). The eye tells the story of a disruptive positive energy always ready to dent the universe.
Depending on the light and angle, sometimes the energy's subtle and sometimes it's glaring. But it's always alive and ready to disrupt the universe and love and protect my family and all things I love with intense passion and gratitude.
Cheers to living, learning, evolving and growing. And to the positive disrupters ready to dent the universe.

What a knob to cover up one of the most iconic tattoos ever! And what a knob to write 3 pretentious paragraphs about it.

Crazy to get a tattoo like that when your job is an actor, and will have to spend hours in make up getting it covered up.

Well he already has a massive tattoo on the other arm and chest which he's had for years so I'm sure he's aware of whether it impacts him in Hollywood or not and if he's bothered by it.
