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.

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.

I wonder if the show will end with a mass brawl as a prelude to the Rumble (maybe they'll save that for SD) or some sort of tease for WrestleMania (Undertaker/John Cena).

Only time I ever watch Raw all the way through is the night after Wrestlemania.

This is going to be an exception I think :toot:

Enzo Amore has been accused of rape and WWE have suspended him.

Interesting. WWE have said he is suspended until the matter is resolved. So he will surely have to be stripped of his title as it will take months, maybe even a year or more to resolve knowing how court cases can go if he is charged.

I wonder if the belt (and then the division) will be retired rather than held up. Belts have quietly disappeared in the past for far less serious reasons.

Whether true or not, this guy has clearly been a liability for ages.

Old school set for the Manhattan Center, along with Ross and King on commentary.

I may watch some of the Pre show but I'm going to have to wait until tomorrow evening to watch raw 25 as I promised my son I would watch it after school and his swimming lesson.

Just about to comment that he looks a lot older. Obviously he is but he looks older than I expected him too.

I'm not sure how I feel about this pre show. It feels a bit like it's ruining the main show for me.

I'm liking the older looking crowd for the Manhattan Center. Did they restrict kids going in or something.

I still think the ‘old school’ set designs and grittier vibe looks so much better than the LEDs everywhere. It makes such a difference to the believability of the product.

Vince and Shane still know how to take a stunner like a boss.
