I assume so, either that or he knew they wouldn't see some random show in Northern Ireland

I think he can get around it with the event being called Diesel Power from that poster?

But I can't see WWE arguing it, his drawing value these days is almost non-existent.

His excuse? He couldn't afFORD to pay Nikki Bellas his bills.

My dumb ass literally thought he flipped the car, as in crashed it, in some sort of insurance scam :fp: Dude must be stuck for a few pound.

WWE released Jim Johnston, for years the creator of nearly all the entrance music. CFO$ having been absolutely killing it with theme songs in recent years but still a shame to see Jim go, he wrote a lot of classics.

My first thought was he flipped it as a show of his strength or something and then read the story and felt really dumb.

NXT's main event this week was amazing. Those guys were frequently pulling off and combing regular moves that looked better than the finishers of the entire main roster's tag division. It did kind of look like it took place in a Bingo Hall though. :shifty:

I hope Impact's recent change in allowing talent to use gimmicks outside of the company will mean WWE finally pull the trigger on Maria and Mike, and let them use the Miracle gimmick that the whole power of love thing is a dire rip-off of. Two fantastic heels being completely wasted. Really hope WWE don't half measure the 'Broken Universe'.

Are Fozzy actually any good? I’ve avoided them until now much Cena’s rap album but surely if they’ve been around this long they can’t be that bad.

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:
