Live stuff is always perfectly fine for me but it's often dogshit when watching on-demand stuff, the quality is all over the place and it doesn't help that the sound quality goes to absolute shite too. I cancelled my subscription ages ago and just use a mate's login now, wasn't paying for crappy service like that.

Matt Hardy vs Elias Sampson and Breezango vs Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn added to the pre-show.

Is the pre-show on now? I thought it was an 11pm start, but noticed the thread title lists 10pm...

Yeah, it's on. They seem to love these 6 hour + extravaganzas these days.

Ugh annoying, I want to catch the end of I'm A Celeb :oops:

I wonder why it's an hour earlier. I mean it's usually an hour earlier when they do a two hour pre-show, but this is even earlier than that?

It was cringeworthy. I could work out if they hated each other or if they were really bad at pretending they did.

Just looking at the dates for the UK tour next may and I'm a bit confused, why is there such a large gap between Wednesday 9th and Monday 14th? Are they planning a ppv with a axxess and nxt show for the gap? It seems very odd. 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

Booker T is getting worse and worse. After the commentary last night we’ve now got this nonsense.

I don’t understand why they need to send the wrestlers out there so early so they’re wrestling in front of an empty building.

Yeah it's strange to have a match only 35 mins after the doors opened.

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.

A 5 man commentary booth is just pure stupidness.
