I like how the video was done, already different to the usual stuff they have. The pops hardy got every time he came on screen was great...the deathly silence when Wyatt’s parts came though, not even boos, just nothing.

Are they going all out with this like Senor Benjamin, Vanguard 1 and Bray facing off against King Maxel at some point?

I doubt WWE or Hardy want to just repeat what he did in TNA. Let Hardy have some input to come up with new things with a few nods to the past thrown in. I’d like to see Reby come in though, at least while Jeff is out.

Is Matt Hardy's gimmick supposed to be a cross between Austin Powers and Monty Python or something.

Maybe not repeat it but they definitely need to do something major with it. I see a lot of potential for the network with this angle with Hardy Deletion PPVs etc.

No doubt we will just get Rhodes in Polkadots though.... :cry:

Wow, what an absolute cock to do something like that. It's always weird when these people actually do something in real life which is totally contrary to their character.

Oddly, I know an interesting fact about laws on kidnap in the US. It can be as simple as forcing someone to move rooms in a building. So if you were robbing a house and moved the victim to the basement, that's kidnapping.

I don't offer that as a defence of Swann, it's just an interesting fact I found out when it comes to kidnapping. Not that I'm well versed in that crime..... :shifty:

WWE debuted a slightly rejigged WWE title last night:


I wonder if this is a prelude to them also changing their logo from red to black.

Has anyone watched this before? It's actually really interesting, two years old but a good behind the scenes documentary, some good inside to the business as a whole, not just NXT.

How come Kenny Omega seems to be incapable of taking a code breaker properly.

That's a really unflattering shot of Cole in the that video link... he looks off his tits.

I noticed he took them differently alright, not sure if I’d call it improper though. Some people over sold the gooseberry fool out of it in WWE, bouncing really high like Jericho’s legs were rubber or something. I’m sure Omega and Jericho want this feud as heated as possible so they’re probably trying to keep it realistic as possible.

There are a load of rumours going around that Vince McMahon is on the verge of bringing back the XFL.

Totally unconnected I'm sure, WWE will be making even more budget cuts to production in 2018, apparently filming more PPV weekends (including NXT) from the same venue. Currently they already do this multiple times a year (usually for things like Summerslam and Survivor Series).

Underwhelming show. Ziggler, really? The last two matches were solid, even with the inevitable shenanigans. The complete silence when the Bludgeon Brothers won... booking has screwed the repackage before it even started.

The Ziggler win was a bit baffling alright, the mans had countless chances. Does he keep signing 1 year contracts and they just give him a belt so he’ll stay and job for another year or something? The mans a bore, always talking about leaving because of the way he’s treated but never does. They really need to start pulling the trigger faster with these former NXT champs that get called up, Nakamura and Roode have both been wasted since their call ups.
Also they had the old style red flick belt back again last night, strange.
