Can't believe how over Elias is. Calls the crowd scumbags, and they start chanting 'We deserve it' and 'We are scumbags'. Unless I completely misheard those dualing chants, they did kind of overlap.

The women SMASHED it! So many great spots, risks and bumps. They now have a failsafe to impede Rousey's ascent to Champion. I assume she could cash in tonight?

I like Paige way more now as general manager than I ever did as a wrestler.

The crowd during Reigns and Mahal has been amazing.

Absolute joke. Asuka now has a loss to Carmella... as if her insufferable screeching wasn't bad enough. It feels like Asuka's streak was an unwanted inheritance for the main roster.

Can’t believe they’ve brought back James Ellsworth. It was played out the last time.

Wouldn’t be surprised if this ends in a double count out, which would be apt as they’ve just brought up St Valentines Day Massacre. Everyone on the KickOff panel earlier went with a Nakamura win.

Wow, loved that. That was my favourite of their matches.

Not going to lie, I'm wrecked, flagging so bad. Not sure if I'll make the end of the show, which will surely overrun past 4am, with the men's MITB match, and Rousey / Jaxx still to go.

Totally saw that coming. Much deserved too. Bliss is still heel MVP.

Rousey proving herself tonight and at WrestleMania. No chance of her embarrassing herself in the ring, she’s so far been better than many that have been doing it for years.

Yeah, she put on a solid show.

Hoping Joe wins this, or Balor, or Strowman. :shifty: I'd be surprised if they didn't go with a SD win to even it out.

Wow, I'd hoped, but never expected. I hope he's the one to take the title off Lesnar.

Sounds like money in the bank was pretty decent. I don’t think I have a change of watching it this week so just read the results instead.

It’s such a shame that they’ve already had strowman face Lesnar earlier in the year. It would have added much more intrigue to Strowman having the briefcase.

Really running scared of World of Sport. Presuming NXT UK will be on the Network.

Another show to cram in every week. :dread:

NXT roster is huge and it seemed like the UK talent they signed were barely getting a look in so this is a really good move. Sham it'll be relegated to the Network though.

I wonder where it will be filmed. Will it move around the country or have a residency somewhere.

These are the first sets of taping apparently:

Saturday, July 28, and Sunday, July 29, at the Corn Exchange, Cambridge
Saturday, Aug. 25, and Sunday, Aug. 26, as part of Insomnia, the U.K.’s biggest gaming festival, at NEC Birmingham
Saturday, Oct. 13, and Sunday, Oct. 14, at Plymouth Pavilions
Saturday, Nov. 24, and Sunday, Nov. 25, at Liverpool Olympia

Really hope they do tour around the whole UK and not just go between the same few venues in England.

Hopefully booking some of these smaller venues will give it a different, grittier feel, which is what the U.K. shows have had so far.

Spotted some NJPW chat a few pages back - how are we feeling for the G1 this year? Ibushi/Omega at Budokan on the second last day is going to be incredible.

Big Cass has been released and has not been wished the best in his future endeavours. I wonder who he pissed off :lol:
