Kevin Owens - for a guy the company sometimes seems to back, he doesn't half job out a lot. Looks like he'll be laying down for Braun next. I don't get it.

Anyone seen Paul Heymans Facebook post on Brock. That's the best written promo I have seen in some time. I like this idea that Brock only shows up for the money. To me it elevates the title that it only gets defended on special occasions.

Should be one of the top monster heels like he was in NXT rather than the cowardly geek act they've had him doing. Zayn has two torn rotator cuffs and it sounds like he's going to be out for a long time so that sucks.

Interesting, I thought Jacobs was just nominated a the republican candidate for a mayor in Knoxville. Maybe there’s quite a gap before the actual election.

On Bryan they seem to have deliberately taken the wind out of his sails. And with the reformation of team hell no it’s like they have hit reset with him. I’m sure he will be in the main even scene and win the title at some point but by then I wonder if people will have lost interest in him.

Maybe they’ll bring back the psychologist or anger management guru or whatever he was as well. Feels like a step backwards. Or worse Kane turns heel on him and that’s one of the main midcard feuds for the summer...

I get the impression Johnny Saint is going to be another Mike Adamle when it comes to live promos. He doesn’t appear to be overly familiar with the product.

“Four Way Fatal”. Surprised they didn’t have that redubbed.

Can't shake the feeling that the promo will be the best thing about it.

One of the main things i struggle with on UK tv wrestling shows is the commentary. Whoever it is just doesn't seem to have the right voice for me.
Maybe it's years of American accents on WWE, that said though Lord Alfred Hayes was excellent. I could probably cope with Wade Barrett (Stu Bennett) on commentary though, obviously he's the GM so that's not happening.

Have they confirmed who'll be taking part (other than the video)? Couldn't find anything.

They brought back Dr. Shelby last night...but for Bayley and Sasha. After the momentum of last week’s ‘Stone Cold Bayley’ beatdown (which the crowd was going mental for), was the best way to follow it up then with bad comedy?

Apparently ITV have given him a more secondary role in this one, rather than building the whole show around him.

Maybe they’ll get the belt off him on episode 1.

Interesting that they managed to get joe hendry with him now signed to TNA. I wonder if the deal is that he is pushed on the show.

Well, Moose is also on that roster and he's contracted to Impact too. Perhaps the agreement they had with Jeff Jarrett is still active in some way?

Thanks for the list KK, some top names on there that should make for some interesting matches.

I like Grado, though he is a diabolical wrestler.

Sounds like Takahashi broke his neck last night, it was only a matter of time because he is an absolute mentalist.



Cringed when I watched it this morning but didn't realise it was that that bad :dread:
