That was great...while it lasted. Lesnar certainly doesn't get paid by the half hour...

That was really exciting for the brief amount we got. Such a shame we didn't get more. Bewildered the ref didn't force Joe to break the clutch when they stumbled into the ropes though...

Cole mentioning it's Lesnar's first defence since 'Mania... in April... three months ago... and Lesnar still just has two moves.

Didn't realise the crowd were chanting Cass-hole to Big Cass. Just assumed it was poor diction from the Texas audience. :lol:

Starting with WWE SmackDown Live on the 18th July, WWE RAW and SmackDown are moving to Sky Sports Action and Arena, and simulcast on Main Event. Prices start from £18 for 1 channel, £22 for 2, 3 for £26, or the whole lot, including Main Event, for the current price of £27.50.

WWE will share programming with darts, NFL, boxing, tennis and rugby.

So WWE will be spread over action and arena, I wonder if they will stick raw on one and SD on the other in an effort to get people to subscribe to both.

That would be an epic piss take. :lol:

I'm guessing it'd be on the one channel, though they haven't said which yet. From September, NFL will be on one station opposite RAW. Sky Sports Mix will be used for any additional clashes.

Opening the show with Great Balls of Fire made the product feel ancient.

Mauro Ranallo is covering the Mayweather/McGregor press conference right now. He'll also be calling the fight when it happens. Why WWE has him tucked away on NXT is beyond me.

Vince probably doesn't see him as mentally strong enough to be lead commentator on raw due to the JBL situation. That seems like how his mind would work.

I hope she's not who Kurt Angle was on the phone with.

I wonder if most WWE fans would even know who she is? She's hardly at the level of an Eric Bischoff.

Imagine if they brought back the storyline with her and AJ Styles.

It would make some sense though if WWE are on the verge or have purchased the TNA video library, which is now I guess a defunct brand to a certain extent, were it not for GWF currently retaining the Impact name.

I'm positive one day we're going to hear Michael Cole go "My God that's...that's...that's Vince Russo!"
