I don't get why that fatal fiveway was a thing.

The only thing on the line was fighting Asuka right?

Jim Cornette's sure had an eventful weekend. First he got into an argument with Santino Marella and stormed out, and then later that same day he got his dick out because he saw a cardboard cutout of Vince Russo...



WRESTLING.

So apparently Neville walked out before Raw on Monday.

'Every week I go out there and every week you have me talk like Triple H circa 2000 and some arsehole then tells me I look like an elf...'

Walking out on the company on the night of TV is very unprofessional though (and it's not like Neville is the stature of a Steve Austin); even if you've had enough or something is going on in your personal life, at least someone like Wade Barrett gave his notice and saw out his time properly.

strawberry floating hell, I'd have walked out after that Wyatt promo! Who the strawberry float is writing that absolute shite? Devitt looked ridiculous trying to sell it too. Utterly embarrassing.

It was like he got possessed by a chipmunk.

On the subject of bad promos, I'm positive Roode or Ziggler completely forgot their lines on SmackDown last night. It was anything but...glorious.

Some recent wrestling thoughts:

I didn't like Xavier Woods cheerily walking into HIAC like it was his birthday. If I re-watch an old HIAC it'll be funny to see people act like it's brutal, when I know Xavier basically skipped inside it, then slapped people about with his rainbow coloured kendo stick.

Bray Wyatt's act does seem silly but the Undertaker, Mankind, or the Brood must have seemed ridiculous to adults. I remember liking some Mankind promos when I was 10 or whatever -- probably some 10 year old today thinks Bray's promo was decent.

Talking of promos, I found Zayn's on Smackdown to be really bad. I was bored. It's like he was just some guy who'd wandered in to the ring for his first ever promo.


My 12 year old nephew loves Bray Wyatt.

I've seen Nine Legends, it was really good so I'll be checking this out, plus it supports a nice cause.

I see they've restarted the "previously on Monday Night RAW" narrator at the start of the show pioneered by IMPACT a number of years ago, like we're watching a reality show. Or Hell's Kitchen USA.

I'm going to go for The Shield losing to set-up a Survivor Series elimination match and The Shield having to find two teammates.

Not interested in what they do with Enzo. They'll probably book him as a heel champ again soon [yawn to heel 205 champs] to try to draw interest in 205. And it won't work.


That's true, I mean heel Neville didn't elevate the entire show and make him one of the best in the company again or anything :shifty:

The PPV is TLC but looking at the card not a single one of the matches is a tables, ladders or chairs match :lol:

The main event is TLC, hard to see in some of the graphics/info though since there's 8 names and also billed as a 3-on-5 handicap match since no one could have realised that themselves.

Should be some cool spots, looking forward to Braun wreaking havoc as always :datass: Cesaro is always innovative in these type of things too but also always half kills himself, gives me the fear :dread: .

At least one of the main events for Survivor Series is set...Jinder Mahal vs Brock Lesnar in a non title match. We've all been clamouring to see that one, right?

Along with the ratings (a 1.8 for RAW!) it would appear WWE now has a TV attendance problem for RAW AND SmackDown. According to the Wrestling Observer, half of the building was empty for RAW. So when they're talking to the camera, they're almost literally talking to nobody. It must be so weird to watch the show as a fan because you're effectively looking at an empty building, which I'm sure is partly why crowd noise has been terrible. Maybe it's just about time they started going back to smaller venues again.

Nia Jax has also been granted a leave of absence for personal reasons, though rumours suggest she did a Neville and walked out.

I was watching the international edit of RAW last night, and there was only 3 minutes worth of wrestling in 40 minutes. It went from the opening promo, to MizTV, to a Sasha/Fox match, to an Enzo promo. Most weeks its really good, but occasionally it can be absolute torture because its practically back-to-back promos for an hour until the 2 headline matches. SmackDown is different as they air the whole show and just remove the 40 minutes worth of adverts.
