Holy gooseberry fool, wasn’t expecting that! Deserved though, Almas is good and nice not to have 6 month plus NXT title reign for a change.

Well that's a shock... Genuinely wondering if it was a botched finish.

I thought we had blackface ref back, but no it was just a ref who was actually black. :shifty:

Don't think I can remember anyone ending up in such bad shape after going through a table. They kept the cameras off ring 2 for ages.

Great match. All over the place, but packed with so many amazing spots. Adam Cole is hilarious. Weird there were so many heels in the match. Kind of explains the bizarre card.

Well for anyone worried about it being too tame, it ended up being more violent than any of the Fall Brawl War Games.

I think after that, the match will definitely be back again next year.

As is usually the case NXT continues to be to the best thing WWE put out. Really enjoyed the Black/Dream match and with the talk at the end both guys look good. Been super impressed with Dream - think he's one of the best true NXT guys for quite some time.

Not particularly buzzed for Survivor Series - still not a fan that pretty much all storylines go on hiatus for bragging rights between the two brands. Hopefully Owens/Zayn get involved and further the angle from Hell in a Cell.

Just thought I would quietly poke my head round the door to let you know that wrestling will be on the agenda in the latest episode of 'This is a show' podcast.

We have an interview with Progress wrestler 'Fantastic' David Francisco, and also have a discussion on bizarre match stips. May be of interest to some of you guys who post in this thread.

Watch out for the upload tomorrow:

Live stuff is always perfectly fine for me but it's often dogshit when watching on-demand stuff, the quality is all over the place and it doesn't help that the sound quality goes to absolute shite too. I cancelled my subscription ages ago and just use a mate's login now, wasn't paying for crappy service like that.

Matt Hardy vs Elias Sampson and Breezango vs Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn added to the pre-show.

Is the pre-show on now? I thought it was an 11pm start, but noticed the thread title lists 10pm...

Yeah, it's on. They seem to love these 6 hour + extravaganzas these days.

Ugh annoying, I want to catch the end of I'm A Celeb :oops:

I wonder why it's an hour earlier. I mean it's usually an hour earlier when they do a two hour pre-show, but this is even earlier than that?

It was cringeworthy. I could work out if they hated each other or if they were really bad at pretending they did.

Just looking at the dates for the UK tour next may and I'm a bit confused, why is there such a large gap between Wednesday 9th and Monday 14th? Are they planning a ppv with a axxess and nxt show for the gap? It seems very odd. I was going to buy tickets for raw live to take my son and they go on sale next Wednesday but I'm concerned there may be something going on with that weekend gap. If there is a ppv then I would rather do that.

Wed 9 May – Bournemouth International Centre

Mon 14 May – O2 Arena, London (Raw)

Tue 15 May – O2 Arena, London (Smackdown)

Tue 15 May – Genting Arena, Birmingham

Wed 16 May – Echo Arena, Liverpool

Thu 17 May – Metro Radio Arena, Newcastle

Fri 18 May – FlyDSA Arena, Sheffield

Booker T is getting worse and worse. After the commentary last night we’ve now got this nonsense.

I don’t understand why they need to send the wrestlers out there so early so they’re wrestling in front of an empty building.

Yeah it's strange to have a match only 35 mins after the doors opened.
