Why does Kurt Angle always seem to stand with his knees bent, can he no longer straighten his legs or something?

Looks like the revival will be getting the ascension and Heath Slater treatment next week.

Yeah it's odd. Quite a shame when you see him standing there. Almost expect him to be in a wheelchair or using a walker in the next few years.

Brawn strowman is strawberry floating hillarious. WWE need to realise that they are onto something here. He should be winning the rumble and facing Lesnar at mania, not Reigns.

Him returning in the ambulance on Raw and decking Roman is still one of the funniest things I've seen in wrestling in years, intentional or not.

Jey Uso was arrested for DUI on Sunday and Roman Reigns has been named by a jailed drug dealing as one of his steroid clients.

This is probably a stupid question, will Mixed Match Challenge only be available live or can you just watch it at any time on Facebook?

I read that Facebook live isn’t available outside of the US at present so it will be on the network a few days after.

Thanks, that's disappointing. I don't have Sky or the Network so was hoping that was going to be a way of watching more wrestling for free.

WWE has uploaded just over 4 minutes worth of highlights to their YT channel (the show is just shy of half hour).

Nash has tweeted that he won’t be at raw 25 due to travelling causing issues with his knees. WWE now have to fill the 20mins it would have taken for him to walk down to the ring with something else. I also assume that means anything NWO related will be off now.

NWO should really be kept off of an anniversary like this, but Razor Ramon would be a great moment as he was a big part of those early Raw years. Surely the show needs to end with Austin though, current stories be damned.

Yeah it's annoying this Raw is the go-home show for the Rumble, otherwise they could've had a lot of fun with it.

Impact was bizarre this week, the entire episode building to a match that was removed from the show. Great that it's available free on YouTube, but the end of the episode felt so flat. It seems to have done well compared to what they typically put up on YouTube though.

Didn’t realise Jericho was announced for tonight.

There's a PPV-style pre-show that begins for this at 12am on the WWE Network/YouTube. Not sure what's going to be on it though.

I'm really looking forward to this; the atmosphere and look of the show in the Manhattan Center should be brilliant.
