Most at ringside look like being from the House of Saud in traditional robes, watching on comfy couches (lucky them).

Everyone else is loud and into it, but I don’t think they’re microphoned up properly and most of the noise is dissipating being outdoors.

Apparently Sami Zayn isn't on this show because of his Syrian ancestry. What the actual strawberry float.

There’s a lot of funny close-up camera angles on this show, usually only employed when a building is empty. The hard cameras are there but they’re filming the majority from the floor.

I’m beginning to get the impression the Royals at ringside don’t give a gooseberry fool about the wrestling...

Ooh, someone from security telling a few of them to sit down. He’ll be dead by morning.

Did anyone just see Mahal's sell of Hardy's Whisper in the Wind? Hardy completely missed it and Mahal, about a second later, took a bump. :lol: :fp:

Wow, that was a brutal botch by Jinder. DDP shaking the top rope with The Machine on Thunder bad.

Hope there’s a giff later.

What is this extended intermission all about, it’s like a theatre production.

Ah right, that makes sense. I was wondering why the crowd didn’t appear to be reacting to the backstage interviews at all.

The majority of genuine fans really are miles away from the Royals at ringside.

Looks like The House of Saud whipped off Finn’s LGBT+ trunks.

I know the answer already (£££) but it's utterly ridiculous that WWE say they can't do a PPV event in the UK because of logistics when they can run this.
