Yeah I’m very surprised they’ve gone for the same night as takeover. I wonder who’s tickets go on sale first.

Will we be able to stream it? NJPW's sub service or ROH's or both, I wonder?

Good to see there's barely any "extreme rules" matches on Extreme Rules tonight :lol:

Hogan’s back in the Hall of Fame! Time to big boot leg drop punch some foreigners, run wild and forget his lines, brother.

No surprise that the top 2 matches both nights so far have been excellent. I always think "they can't keep this up for 3 weeks" but they usually do overall, in recent years anyway.

Dunno if I'll survive the night. So hot. :cry: Not at all interested in any Hogan nonsense.

Not to mention 30 minutes of Ziggler... who is responsible for that???

If Styles vs Rusev is on first I might bail. And if Asuka loses to Carmella clean I'm cancelling my subscription.

WWE clearly so annoyed at the crowd counting down from 10 and going “Nerrrrrrr” like the Royal Rumble in this Iron Man match they’ve taken the clock off the TitanTron. But the crowd continuing to do it anyway, and more frequently.

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

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.

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.

I'm afraid I've got some bad news.
