Reigns vs. Mahal and then Lesnar again (Summerslam?).

So much to look forward to on RAW! :datass:

Anyone notice on RAW how both Goldust and Zack Ryder went into Angle’s office asking for a qualification match for MITB and neither got an answer, the segment just ending - in Goldust’s case he just left!

And then in the next segment, Mojo faced Rollins in an impromptu Intercontinental Championship match - well who signed off on the match? People asking Angle for matches all night and then you’ve suddenly got a title match happening on the fly.

Some of the continuity issues on this show are so bad.

Apparently Cena has moved onto Carmella after Nikki Bella, perfect reason to revive his rap career right there. Lucky bastard.

Isn't Carmella in a relationship with Big Case?

Ended a number of months ago, despite now being on the same brand.

Yeah I saw the rumours yesterday but I could find no mention of her ever having broken up with Cass.

I sometimes wonder how much of this stuff is staged for Total Divas and Total Bellas.

Pretty cool seeing TNA footage of Kurt and AJ in the latest Table for 3 on the network. Weird that their promoting GWN while doing so though.

I’m positive that’s happened before.

Fair play to Cody & The Bucks for selling out ALL IN in half an hour. I'm not a fan of either, but it's great to see wrestling outside of WWE thriving more than anything right now, and ALL IN is the culmination of that. Add in UK companies like PROGRESS running Wembley Arena later on this year, and ICW running the SSE Hydro for a few years now, and New Japan having some of the best wrestling in the world (and the best wrestler in the world in ZSJ) and there's never been a better time to be a wrestling fan IMO.

And they did it again on SmackDown this week from London as well.

Just overkill to the extreme.

I just don’t get how bad they are to build feuds on the main roster, just perplexes me.

There isn’t really any storylines any more, certainly no overarching one, so you can go away for weeks and come back and find you’ve missed absolutely nothing (apart from some matches, obviously).

Even when it’s Russo terrible at least there’s a reason to come back the following episode.

strawberry float sake :lol: After MitB that'll be five times they've wrestled in two months I think.



Dave Mastiff was the main heel on that World of Sport pilot. Dunno who else is being announced but wouldn't surprise me if they nick a few more people who were involved in that.

Have any of the NXT ppvs been bad? Haven't watched any in years and I'm thinking of watching them all in order

Looks like Smackdown may be returning to Friday nights if the rumoured deal for it to move to Fox in the US comes off. Move wont happen until Autumn (Fall) 2019 though. I wonder what it will mean for Wrestlemania weekend and the UK tours. That is assuming that it is live on a friday night and not pre-taped. I would assume it will be live as pre-taped will surely kill the ratings worse than they already are.

Gold after gold, you’re in for such a treat. Talking some 5* level matchups.
