I'm really looking forward to it. Think I'll probably stay up and watch it live.

WWE have gone and cancelled one of their Indian tour dates, leaving just the one "Supershow" on the Saturday. Ticket sales have apparently been diabolical.

I think what with Jinder losing the title on a taped show and WWE Network subscribers falling, this whole India experiment has been a flop.

I had no idea The LAW has been put on haitus and all the on air talent have been laid off. John Pollock in particular is a million times better than Meltzer in his analysis. Genuinely gutted there, and The LAW was a good show across the board. :(

Unless Owens and Zayn do the same for Smackdown.

It was an amusing experiment while it lasted, but the guy is terrible. Poor at wrestling and he is literally the worst actor I’ve ever seen in WWE.

I like how everyone has now adopted the "One Fall" chant that I first heard in WWE's Blackpool show, but I think may have debuted in Scotland.

Looking at the graphics for War Games on Saturday, the double cage doesn't appear to have a roof, instead looking like a typical WWE cage.

In another variation, the wrestlers will be locked in shark cages on the stage.

Ta fortunately I found that and have started listening to the replacement shows. Genuinely impressed they managed to get a review out on the day they got made redundant. I'd definitely support them.on Patreon if they decided to go independent.

I thought the same but I'm assuming they are looking for new work in the same field and don't want a conflict of interest going in?

Jennifer Hudson and David Otunga have split. That’ll be another future endeavor soon then, the guy is useless.

Triple H has confirmed War Games tomorrow won't have a roof. Now if you believe him it's because it was too limiting in terms of moves. If you believe Bryan Alvarez it's because Vince McMahon refused it (which I can't really fathom why - too much like Hell in a Cell?)

Will reserve judgement until I see the match. I would have liked if they kept it but just raised it to properly allow moves off the top rope.

I assume war games is actually Sunday at 1am and not in a couple of hours?
