Just finished, good show with a great main event. Special shout out to ZSJ's bad-mouthing ("You're taking the piss m8") and Chris Charlton who should always be on commentary

WWE wheeling out all the greatest hits.

DX this week, Evolution next week.

Trish Stratus vs Bliss has also been turned into a tag team match featuring Lita and James for some reason.

I wonder if they changed their mind on Trish vs Lita because they were worried about ring rust.

:lol: :wub:

Apparently there's meant to be some announcement about the NXT UK thing on Thursday. Rumours were they had agreed a deal with BT Sports to show it but Sky got arsey about it.

I’m beginning to wonder if at some point in the next 6 months WWE aren’t going to do DX vs the nWo...

What’s going to headline Survivor Series, Shawn Michaels vs Ubertaker?

Surprise surprise NXT UK is going to be on the Network. No TV channel in the UK.

I find it a bit hard to believe that nobody wanted to air this considering what has gone out this past year (IMPACT on Spike and Showcase, 5Star on Freesports, WOS on ITV - NXT UK would have guaranteed bigger ratings than all of them), and I don’t see why WWE would have sat on it for so long if it was only destined for the Network (will presumably replace the Mae Young Classic slot when that ends for the replay airing).

Wouldn’t be surprised if Sky had something to do with it. There’s just over a year left on the contract, though it’ll be announced what’s happening in a few weeks for January 2020 onwards. WWE ratings have increased on Sky Sports the last couple of months, though they’re still crap.

Finally got a chance to watch King Of Pro Wrestling, and it was so good, especially after the embarrassment that was SSD. The main event was flawless! I cannot wait for the Omega / Ibushi singles rematch. I'm really excited about Omega / Tanahashi at Wrestle Kingdom too. And it's not just because of the amazing hair. There's a purity to Tanahashi that face's just don't have anymore.

Anyone know if Bound For Glory is showing live on that Sky channel (I can't remember what it's called)?

Looks like it’s only available on PPV for £19.99 via: https://www.fite.tv/watch/impact-wrestl ... -18/2obik/

Showcase may have a replay but I haven’t seen it advertised yet.

The TV schedules say “The Bound For Glory” from 11:30pm on Sunday but mine doesn’t elaborate.

I've been really enjoying Impact lately (more than main-roster WWE which I haven't really bothered with since Backlash) but strawberry floating hell Sami Callihan and those OVE banana splits are SHITE :lol: Genuinely one of the worst acts I've seen in a while. He seems to pop up everywhere just now too.

Rumours floating around WWE might move their Crown Jewel PPV to Manchester [amidst all the trouble in Saudi Arabia].

Hope this is true I'd love to see Shawn Michaels, Undertaker in person, booked a £28 Travelodge Room [free cancellation] before the hotels get wind of this; fingers crossed :shifty:

The sun are reporting that crown jewel has been axed. No one else seems to be saying this at present though.
