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:

People criticise Ospreay for his in ring style, saying it will lead to injury, but Takahashi has always been the more reckless in ring worker IMO. Hope he turns out ok, he has almost unlimited potential.

Just finished watching that :dread: Only a matter of time before Takahashi was hurt like that but I don't think that was his fault.

Whole show was great though.

AJ Styles vs. Shinsuke Nakamura added to SmackDown tomorrow AGAIN. No doubt Rusev will run in.

Honestly, it feels like the same old matches on a loop every week.

Yeah I've no idea why you put yourself through this every week when, barring NXT, it's just the same old gooseberry fool. I binned off the Network earlier this year.

Dunno why you don't give NJPW a try.

Speaking of NJPW this happened the other night :o



From Dave Meltzer:
"Ross suffered a rib injury. Barnett just reacted to what was happening. Ross was upset, besides being injured, because the night before he had spoken to officials about fighting outside the ring and near the announcers desk."

Even just watching the Raw hilights on YouTube these days seems like a chore. No champion, focus still on Reigns while wasting people like Owens, Srtowman and Elias with really bad “funny” segments. Every show looks and feels the same. I’m no NJPW geek but I do find myself more interested in it and watching more of it and other indies than WWE. The fact that I’m more hyped for All In than Summer Slam says it all.
God I hope Omega, Cody and The Bucks don’t sign with WWE :dread:

It’s awful, it’s simply awful.

Having found myself enjoying NJPW once again this weekend, it’s kind of rekindled that enjoyment I get from watching wrestling. I fear for anyone going to the main roster, I don’t know how you make AJ, Nak, Owens, Seth, Balor, Sami boring but here we are. No way would they allow the young bucks to get over for example. Until Trips is on full time watch I can’t see myself bothering with the wwe product any time soon.

I don’t watch NJPW, who was on commentary with Ross? I assume he’s a former or current wrestler? Looked pretty big.

Josh Barnett. Wrestled in New Japan a while ago and briefly in TNA last year. Did MMA too with Pride in Japan and two stints in UFC (in his first run there he won the heavyweight title but was later stripped because he failed a drug test). He just does commentary now.

Always thought it was weird WWE never made a move for him.

btw, speaking of how crap WWE is just now:



lol

Josh Barnett. He's wrestled for NJPW before, but I believe he is most well known as an MMA fighter.

An important point to note is that JR and Barnett aren't regular commentators for NJPW, but AXS TV produce their US based shows as well as a weekly highlights show. Jr and Barnett are contracted to AXS rather than NJPW and are GARBAGE. The usual NJPW team is Kevin Kelly and Don Callis who are the best commentary pair in the business bright now for my money.
