Is it any wonder 205 Live is dying on its arse when its main feud is relegated to a pre-show affair interrupted by a commercial break!

Didn't expect that result with the Rollins hype from the videogame cover. But a much needed win for Wyatt, that win, loss, draw statistic graphic for him floating around on Twitter is shocking.

Rollins will get his win back somewhere. 50/50 booking.

I've forgotten how many times Miz/Ambrose have exchanged victories in the last year.

Not so much 50/50 booking for Bray Wyatt...



Seriously depressing.

Was it earlier this year or last that a fan held up a sign that read "Eater of Pinfalls"

Can't remember when it was, but it was depressingly apt.

What a tag team match! Great to see so much time devoted to a tag team match. It feels really rare with WWE on the main roster.

They cut the sound so much I thought his entrance music stopped playing! :lol: Why do they even bother anymore?

The last 5 minutes of that finish and crash was hilarious. There needs to be a gif of Roman flying into the back of that ambulance after missing the Spear. Priceless.

Quality acting.

Oh dear, Lesnar and Joe is looking like a squash job. They're wheeling out the jobbers to fill time...

That was great...while it lasted. Lesnar certainly doesn't get paid by the half hour...

That was really exciting for the brief amount we got. Such a shame we didn't get more. Bewildered the ref didn't force Joe to break the clutch when they stumbled into the ropes though...

Cole mentioning it's Lesnar's first defence since 'Mania... in April... three months ago... and Lesnar still just has two moves.

Didn't realise the crowd were chanting Cass-hole to Big Cass. Just assumed it was poor diction from the Texas audience. :lol:

WWE will share programming with darts, NFL, boxing, tennis and rugby.

So WWE will be spread over action and arena, I wonder if they will stick raw on one and SD on the other in an effort to get people to subscribe to both.

That would be an epic piss take. :lol:

I'm guessing it'd be on the one channel, though they haven't said which yet. From September, NFL will be on one station opposite RAW. Sky Sports Mix will be used for any additional clashes.
