Technically, yes.

One of those TV schedule quirks I suppose.

Slightly concerned something has gone wrong with my Network subscription, as I've just been sent an e-mail informing me I'm eligible for a free month... :?

Looking forward to tonight and tomorrow night. For once I'm actually more excited about the main roster PPV. Really disappointed Gargano vs. Dunne is a dark match and going to be shown on NXT next week (adverts :x). Find it bizarre Andrade is in the title picture. It's doubtful we're going to get another Japanese female champion so soon after Asuka, and I want Ember Moon to win the least, and it's looking like she's the most likely to win (my preferred order: Kairi > Nikki > Peyton >>>>>>>>> Ember Moon). I'm sure it'll be a great match, but I know the ending will sour me. But hopefully Kairi hits that amazing off the top rope elbow onto someone. There are a lot of people I'm looking forward to seeing in action, but not necessarily in these matches. I'm a fan of Black and Ohno, not so much their opponents. The actual War Games match should be fun though.

I randomly stumbled onto some YouTube videos of Blue Pants impersonating other wrestler's entrances (much better than Ziggler), my highlights definitely Nakamura, Omega and Taker. Well worth seeking out.

The two ring set-up should hopefully make for some unique action throughout the night that we haven't seen in a long time. Sting used to jump from one right to the other, and matches used to start in one ring and end up concluding in another.

Really don' think understand the push for Sullivan.

I wonder if we'll see any regular matches switch rings midway through.

What is that irritating noise in the background, someone in the crowd playing the drums like at a football match?

This ref looks like he's spent the night in a tin of Ronseal fence paint.

What a great match with 2 great characters! Shows what can be done with a slow build about something as basic as one guy wanting the other to say his name! Helps that the crowd was super hot for it too. Both Black and Dream hopefully have big things ahead for them, both have NXT championship potential.

State of the tan on the ref though! :lol:

I love Black so much. Don't think that'll be topped tonight.

That ref... it looked more like blackface than a tan.

Gutted. Every time she sticks her tongue out. :x I literally hate that tongue more than Roman Reigns. Great match though... :shifty:

Sane hit the top rope elbow drop. :wub:

That long haired guy is sitting in front of the primary ring, annoyingly. I swear he must be the CEO of Ticketmaster or something. :x

Yeah that guy, sign guy, Brock Lesnar lad, the guy with the WWE blazer(who is also there tonight) always stick out like sore thumbs, I’m guessing if you buy enough WWE stock you get perks like first dibs on tickets for every show? That’s my guess anyways!

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.
