It just makes everything feel so fake and over-produced.

They started it as something a bit different on Mixed Match Challenge because it's on social media, and now it's all over the regular shows.

It's ITV Be, it's E!, it's Snapchat, it's Instagram Stories...

I guess what you’d call the UK equivalent of RAW begins in a few minutes on Freesat. 5 Star Wrestling are airing Live every Thursday night from around the country for 3 HOURS. Rey Mysterio is being heavily trailed. Hopefully the atmosphere and production are better than their Spike TV show...

Theyve managed to make it far worse :slol: Looks so strawberry floating bad. Lights off so cant see the 200 people there.

Brilliant line up though, watching it anyway.

BAKA wrote: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.


Thanks for pointing this out. Catching up on Impact this week, and the show just ends 30 minutes early with no explanation! It reminded me of when they just cut out the Hulk Hogan main event match on one of the PPVs a few years ago on Challenge.

I see they’ve now relegated Bayley to Main Event status (which airs in America exclusively on Hulu and many weeks later on WWE Network).

She looks absolutely fine, but I’ve noticed she’s less toned than she has been in the past, so in other words she’s mentally past giving a gooseberry fool. It’s blatantly all about Rousey for the next few months anyway (which seems to have annoyed both Nia Jax and Sasha Banks on social media).

I think they should give her her a reboot. Give her a leather jacket and throw her into the Balor Club. Her and Finn are great together. They should have been put together in the mixed match challenge as well.

She really doesn’t need a reboot. She was a perfect baby face in NXT, fire the writers on the main roster shows for ruining character after character.

They’ll probably try and turn her heel at some point, despite showing no obvious signs of having it in her. Maybe she’d surprise everyone.

The problem for me I should that I believe they’ve ruined her too much that she is almost beyond repair. Like when they took the wind out of zach ryders sails for example. He never managed to recover.

They dropped the ball last year with her when and how they gave her the title then booked her as an incredibly week and lucky champion. Her character needed to win the title for the first time against the odds at wrestlemania.

I haven't seen this anywhere else but this Twitter account and that was 6 hours ago, not even WON themselves. Sounds like BS.

Jesus, even being associated with Seth Rollins gets you seriously injured these days! I hope I never happen to share a plane flight with him :slol:

They’ve put up a load of old coliseum home videos on the network. It only goes up to ‘93 so far so it’s mainly shite, I watched WWF’s funniest moments from 1991. It had zero funny moments. :simper:

They sure released a lot of rubbish onto VHS back in the day, though there’s a few gems there such as the U.K. Rampage events from Sky Movies.

Anyone else think the conclusion to RAW was a little strange? I heard a stagehand shout “take your time” at Strowman. It was then like the show had officially ended, as he started gesturing to the crowd more than you’d expect him to, before slapping kids hands on the way out. Just felt a little odd.

Well it sounds like Jordon has had minor neck surgery. I don't know why but I always seem to think of him as being a bit too much like Tyson Kidd.

Not too keen on him as a person, but Kid Rock sure has had some great songs on WWE programming over the years. New Orleans a perfect and obvious fit for WrestleMania this year, and of course who can forget Lonely Road of Faith.

Well just gloss over WrestleMania 25...

The Lonely Road of Faith video they knocked up that time was absolutely amazing.
