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

Possible they’ve decided to tour the rest of Europe and then return to the UK, which admittedly doesn’t make much sense, especially for Bournemouth (no offence). But England shows are nearly always paired with Ireland, Scotland, Germany, Italy etc.

Given that there's nothing in Scotland there it may be as simple as they're still negotiating with the Hydro or wherever to have a show there. With that said Payback and Backlash are both scheduled around that time so they may well be planning a PPV somewhere in the UK. Again, hopefully up here. :datass:

I know why they do it because it saves money, but I’d rather they just dump 205 Live and introduce a new show like Shotgun Saturday Night. WWE sent out a survey recently gauging interest in a late night show rated TV-14 or similar. Nobody gives a gooseberry fool about 205 Live, they’re defending the belt in a half empty building, with adverts...this cruiserweight experiment has failed again. WWE just can’t do the devision properly and fans don’t care. Put on something different.

Hell, bring back Sunday Night Heat and tape that on a Tuesday.

I think we’ll know the result of the main event once we’ve seen The Shield vs. New Day and the 5v5 women’s matches. So as to make nobody look weak I’m betting they’ll both be won by one side, the main event the opposite. Or if one brand really dominates the night, then it’s a lock it’ll be the other brand in the main event but that feels too obvious.

RAW looks far more likely on the undercard though (Lesnar, Shield).

Not at all, they deserve a push.
I love how they stop for adverts during a match on their own network :simper:

I know that’s bloody ridiculous, I could,half understand it if it was a paid advert but it was their own advert as well.

Is Jinder going to interfere setting up their rematch for Clash of Champions?

A 5 man commentary booth is just pure stupidness.

Great match, probably the best New Day match I've seen for a while. A bit sloppy towards the end. A good half hour devoted to it, which is pretty cool.

Booker T talks way too much for a five person announce team.

There's a scoreboard... :shock:

As much as I think the SD ladies are booked better, this match is totally one-sided. Raw has an embarrassment of riches when it comes to female talent.

The booking was all over the place, but great to see Asuka finally given a great showcase on the main roster.

I feel like Raw might actually pull off a clean sweep tonight... Surely they won't let Corbin beat The Miz.

I think it’s now a given SmackDown is winning the 5v5.

Really didn't expect that... It was actually a half decent match too...

Corbin mangling Miz's line... :fp: One step forward two steps back for that guy.

Decided to google this Kay jewellery after seeing that piece to see if they're a quality outfit...

Kay Jewelers offers incredibly poor quality and even worse value. I was stunned and thought this would be a perfect example to highlight what you get from Kay Jewelers. This is a ring without proper certification (so the quality may even be lower than they claim).

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Terrible quality
Inflated prices
Poor service

Hope she leaves that cheap bastard at the alter.
