From that exert alone, I can see Vince totally green lighting and funding it!

What was it about?

Basically:
A 2015 draft of a script which at the time wasn't linked to Mcmahon had a young Vince punching out and putting a sleeper hold on an adult store boss because he told a young Linda that she couldn't leave work early because "your shift isn't over bitch"! As a reward he then got to shag Linda down an alley but Wai Ting cut John Pollock off at the moment Vince "entered" Linda!

Leonardo Di Caprio did a good sleaze ball in Wolf of Wall Street, and then Jack Nicholson would be brilliant as the older Vince!

But Leo wouldn't have the physique for Vince, in Vince's mind!

X-Pac was arrested over the weekend for attempting to bring meth (he's claiming Candida) and cannabis into the UK. That's him barred. What an idiot.

I see WWE booked Smackdown exactly as everyone predicted 3 days ago. I don't understand why they have to telegraph so many of these events. Everybody predicted how Mania would play out after Survivor Series last year and we already know Reigns will be going over Brock next Mania barring any injuries.

Its the predictable booking that prevents me from really getting invested in the show at the moment. There seems little point when we can see how things are going to go a year in advance. We basically know already that when it comes to the universal title/main event Raw spot, everything for the next 11 months will be completely meaningless.

The only question SD left me with this week was will Jericho return to Raw or SD after his break with fozzy. I'm assuming from the way they've written him out that he will come back to WWE. It was never made clear whether Jericho was only on SD whilst he has the us title or permanently.

I have no reason to watch WWE next week other than because I'm going to watch SD live :fp: I'm really not fussed though so it's disappointing. My son has become a massive WWE fan in the past year but he hardly watches new raw or SD, he mostly watches old stuff on the network.

Titus tweeted this but deleted after someone pointed out it broke kayfabe by showing Braun and Roman hanging out.

Dammit Titus :lol:

Worth watching the main event of 205 Live this week just to hear Corey Graves making jokes at Tom Phillips' expense for sexting behind his fiancee's back. You can see the both of them laughing constantly at the announce table.

Nude photos of Charlotte (with lopsided boob job) have leaked online. I only knew this one because in her infinite wisdom she's tweeted about it and demanded they be removed, naturally causing it to be retweeted thousands of times and everyone hunting out the photos.

Apparently Vince McMahon wasn't at Payback, RAW or SmackDown this week because he wants to travel less. I noticed a change in the commentary this week as well - JBL was also back to taking the piss out of Saxton.

You're disgusting KK, I've had a look at the photos to see if there was anyway that I could help her out and get them removed but Unfortunately I can't :shifty: That is one massively lopsided boob job. I can only assume it's possibly a recent thing (ligament damage from wrestling) or she just can't get the time off to get it fixed. Although as she's taking nude pics of herself maybe she's just not insecure and is happy with it.

Interesting if vince wasn't there but JBL is taking the piss out of saxton again as a lot of people assumed it was vince in his ear egging him on to saying stuff like that.

Man, Impact really does have some shitty generic entrance music. Nobody really feels like a star when they walk out to the ring.

Alberto Del Rio's theme is really terrible.

I've already lapsed into watching Impact on catch up on a Sunday, in it's old Challenge time slot.

Hope someone will keep the thread up to date with the impending November tour on sale date. I really enjoyed last November, and am hoping to go again this year. I noticed Glasgow is up on their site, but nothing else listed yet, besides the remaining May dates.

Saw that, pretty standard interview,"we're for the whole family" and "it's theatre with athletics" type stuff. Nothing new or interesting.

Thought it was funny how they're referring to her as "WWE Superstar" Stephanie McMahon.

Get ready for another 2 HOURS of in-ring programming coming to the WWE Network every week.

WWE United Kingdom starts this month (date TBA - though I'm guessing either Friday or Saturday) with Jim Ross and Nigel McGuinness on commentary.

WWE Women's Tournament then gets underway in July through August.

I think a Friday or Saturday night slit would be great for that kind of show. JR and McGuiness is a fantastic commentary duo as well, sounds like the are going for a similar style to the tournament commentary which was miles better than anything on their normal shows. I assume it will air next week as there are matches which lead into Takeover Chicago.

I'm sure it will never happen, but WWE would be wise to get this on TV over here, preferably on terrestrial to compete with WOS. As much as everyone mocks WWE for 'inventing' British wrestling, this could be a massive point of entry for new viewers into British wrestling and wrestling as a whole.

Speaking of Takeover, I don't remember them doing one outside of the big 4 weekends. Is this new, or have I just not noticed?
