Steph's new hair has aged her about 10 years.

I see Del Rio is looking to go back to WWE with Vince still high on the guy.

I mean, how?!

I'd sooner Angle wrestle than them get the rock, I like the rock quiet a lot but just like Kurt a lot more...

In honesty I like the sound of a 50 man rumble , I hope a few of the 50 turn out to be real real shocks.

There was a very obvious jump cut edit on the YouTube version of RAW, just before Ronda chooses Stephanie to be her opponent at Mania. Anyone know what happened?

I would have much preferred it if this was Angle's first match since returning.

I can't imagine there will be many if any shocks in the fifty man Rumble. It sounds like it's just a one off special for Saudi Arabia with I assume little impact on WWE storylines, like the stadium event in India last year.

I don’t know, I think I would’ve preferred if The Rock was Rouseys partner. Partly because I’m on edge every time I see Angle do anything physical these days. Just standing there he doesn’t look comfortable, neck bigger than his head with little movement and a constant slightly bent legged stance. He’s probably one of my top 5 of all time and I hate to see something terrible happen, and I’m guessing him and HHH will be working the majority of the match so that’s even more pressure!

On another note I’m really looking forward to what WWE will be able to do with the Hardy compound, I assume at ‘Mania(?), bigger budget than TNA and more potential for cameos from practically any former wrestler of the last 30 years! Hopefully it’ll be proper mental.

It was another very akward Ronda segment, pauses and HHH and Steph jumping in to keep it going. Might have been to make it flow better.

I thought Angle seemed much more at ease in the segment this week. He moved much better, and didn't seem to stumble his words anywhere near as much.

I'm just thinking if Angle left the WWE before they introduced word-for-word scripts, maybe he's not used to reciting so much guff.

So they're introducing a new NXT North American championship at the next Takeover in the ladder match.

Hard to keep up with all these different championships. They’re introducing tag titles for 205 as well. Craziness.

5star Wrestling just starting on Freesports from Scotland.

Actually scrap that, 5 Star hasn’t started at all. Freesports are still airing Live ice hockey despite 5 Star being listed on the EPG. And this is why you don’t schedule two Live programmes without a sensible buffer zone. :fp:

FAKE EDIT: Looking at their FB Page, the show has been “pushed back” to April 12th https://m.facebook.com/5StarWrestling/p ... 2583106520. Blaming cancelled flights/the weather. Zack Gibson has also quit the promotion. A bit of a shambles in other words.

So with the clocks changing in the US we get Fastlane an hour earlier, right? 11pm pre-show, 12am PPV start?

I’ve just watched the wwe presents Kurt Angle special on sky. I had forgotten how much Joey Styles commentary (taboo Tuesday Angle v cena v HBK match) would grate on you. You got so high pitched when he got excited. It was almost unbearable to watch at points.

Checked Network schedule, you are correct. Good news, get extra hours sleep before work...

Enjoyed Orton vs. Roode way more than I expected to. Unexpected end too. Glad Jinder didn't spoil the actual match.

So happy! Had an awful feeling Cena might end up winning, with the apparent bad luck with his WM opponents.
