Hmmm interesting. As it’s jericho I assume the match will go on longer than I originally expected as I thought the rusev match would just be a squash match. I hope rusev isn’t leaving. They need to bite the bullet with him while he’s hot. They already missed an opportunity with him over a year ago, it’s rare you get two chances with the same talent.

They can't future endeavour Rusev on Rusev Day. That'd be rubbing salt in the wound :(

Company doesn’t know what it’s doing.

Though Michael McCool on Twitter was seemingly unhappy that Lana and Rusev called Undertaker “old” to TMZ.

Whole WM weekend was amazing. Not even including NOLA in that which my girlfriend and I fell in love with - glad we added extra days on to the holiday to check it out properly. I could probably be quite critical of WM itself but, honestly, being there in person is just amazing. The whole show did fly by and we were sat next to very nice people who made it all the more enjoyable.

NXT was the highlight, of course. The ladder match is the best live wrestling thing I've ever seen - I'm watching it back now and the relentless noise of the crowd is not being represented properly. White hot all the way. Raw was super fun, too. Never been to one and our seats were incredible, we could hardly have been closer to the ring.

Glad you had a good time. I would love to go one day and really should have done it before marriage and children. It's nigh on impossible for me to afford it at present.

Are we sure this isn't total commitment to a total divas storyline?

I thought it was amusing Nikki asked that people "respect their privacy at this time". Does she not see the contradiction between that and exposing your whole life on Total Divas?

It was all apparently prompted by cena's latest film blockers where he plays a parent. Because of his film role Nikki kept talking to him about having kids.

It must be very hard to be in love with someone when one wants kids and the other doesn't. My sister doesn't want any but her husband does I do have to wonder how long it will last. They are currently in the dog as a substitute phase.

The Bake-Off Thread doesn't get the thread title updated with who's won. Neither does the chat for the Apprentice. The Wrestling Thread wasn't updated to spoil the results of Wrestlemania. Why can't more people be like KK?


Dammit KK you've made me look a fool :x

I assume him did this in response to your comment as it previously just said SD has a new GM

Who says the WWE doesn’t know what they’re doing...

Jinder Mahal to RAW, so I guess that means IC title to SmackDown (currently Seth Rollins)

I didn’t even consider that.

Initially I thought Miz was still IC champ and we were on the verge of finally getting the culmination of his feud with Daniel Bryan.

Crikey, 9 matches now on the Greatest Royal Rumble, including the 50 man Rumble.

This is going to be another 6 hour+ show isn’t it. :dread:

I think everyone in the crowd, myself included, was expecting AJ Styles rather than Bobby Roode. :slol:
