It was a strange PPV. From Curtis Axl and Bo Dallas actually being on the main card, and winning a match, to the crowd chanting 'We want Kane', not things I expect to hear or see from the current product. Reigns seemingly being buried in the mid-card (the crowd were hilarious), the main event featuring Ziggler. I thought for sure when Ziggler and Rollins were the main event that Ambrose would return and either aid or screw Rollins. Probably the worst Iron Man Match I've seen.

It's a shame that that Nakamura match is his most satisfying on the main roster. I loved the technical difficulties moment in the pre-show too, I genuinely felt Renee wasn't sure if he was messing with her. The finish redeemed the Owens / Strowman match. I loved that the crowd seemed to want Lesnar stripped over the other options of having to watch him fight. A decline from last month's PPV, but not as bad as the one prior (BackLash?). Hopefully now that Kane is (apparently legit) injured they can get Styles and Bryan for SummerSlam and halt whatever nonsense they previously had in place.

The clock is more over with this crowd than anything else on this show, never mind just the main event.

It's almost as if having poorly written stories stops people being invested.

Reigns vs Lashley booked again for RAW next week, in a No. 1 Contenders match for SummerSlam against Lesnar.

Just keep making the same matches over and over again.

I watch the highlights of RAW and SmackDown on YouTube, or occasionally the international edits which WWE put up about 6pm UK time.

I also watch NXT on the Network, but haven't bothered with 205 Live for about 5 months.

Yeah, not really a Black fan(not racist), and Ciampa is one of the best heels I’ve seen in years so we’ll deserved. Ciampa/Gargano for the title now is a no brainer and hopefully Black won’t be thrown in to make it a triple threat.

Shame we're not getting Slammiversary for free anymore, appears to have had some great matches.

I noticed Slammiversary was airing on a channel called "Showtime" and "Showtime +1" on satellite last night, but I didn't pay too much attention. There was some Canadian promotion on there as well.

Was it definitely not a repeat of an older one? There's a channel called 'Showcase' (192 on Sky) that shows something from that Fight Network every night. Not always Wrestling, sometimes MMA, or Kick Boxing. I pegged it all as repeats though.

It was announced last week that the fight network would air on showtime in the evenings. They are simulcasting TNA.

:shock: I had no idea... I wonder if there's a way to catch up. Seemingly this news managed to miss all the wrestling related news sites I visit (which admittedly isn't a lot).

Same, I only read about it on digital spy, no where else.

Indeed it is Showcase, my mistake. I don't know if it was new or not. I didn't recognise who was wrestling but the ropes were yellow and it was being shot from a unique angle. I only watched about 10 minutes as I had to get to bed.

Looking at the TV schedules,

St Louis Wrestling is on at 9pm on Thursday, followed by TNA Explosion at 11pm, Greatest Matches at 12am and finally the 1am show is entitled "Impact in 60 - Highlighting early career matches from AJ Styles, Jerry Lynn, Low Ki and Christopher Daniels". Friday at 9pm is Impact in 120, followed by Impact in 60.

I have no idea if the TV guide is correct though. The Digital Spy article makes out it's the Live stream of IMPACT from the USA/Canada. But that would surely go against 5Spike which airs IMPACT in the UK at 11pm every Friday.
