Looks like it’s going to be a pyro heavy night.

Lighting and sound isn’t quite right, but then I suppose that’s to be expected. Microphones are picking up every spot in the ring let alone those listening through headphones.

Cena's obvious calling of spots must be a rib at this point. It's beyond me that he hasn't learned how to do it properly after so many years.

Haha at the COUCHES at ringside under the hard camera.

Actually, they’re on the opposite side as well!

Most at ringside look like being from the House of Saud in traditional robes, watching on comfy couches (lucky them).

Everyone else is loud and into it, but I don’t think they’re microphoned up properly and most of the noise is dissipating being outdoors.

Apparently Sami Zayn isn't on this show because of his Syrian ancestry. What the actual strawberry float.

There’s a lot of funny close-up camera angles on this show, usually only employed when a building is empty. The hard cameras are there but they’re filming the majority from the floor.

I’m beginning to get the impression the Royals at ringside don’t give a gooseberry fool about the wrestling...

Ooh, someone from security telling a few of them to sit down. He’ll be dead by morning.

Did anyone just see Mahal's sell of Hardy's Whisper in the Wind? Hardy completely missed it and Mahal, about a second later, took a bump. :lol: :fp:

Wow, that was a brutal botch by Jinder. DDP shaking the top rope with The Machine on Thunder bad.

Hope there’s a giff later.
