They’re repeating the Stone Cold storyline, just hope it’s not a triple threat but I think it will be.

Speaking of Wrestlemania, what exactly is the pull this year? Outside of Lynch/Ronda, what’s to be excited about?

It's absolutely going to be a three way, WWE just can't help themselves with Charlotte :fp: Loved how Becky started calling her Shoehorn Charlotte on Twitter.

Didn’t he get arrested months ago for a DUI as well? Wonder if he has a bit of a drink problem.

I don't think theres been an announcement but i would imagine it will only be available on an official website or something internationally.

I doubt this is a thing at this stage unless I’ve missed an announcement.

And they sold out the venue again! The two mains look great (tag and Omega/Jericho).

AEW :wub:

Nothing about streaming has been announced yet but it wouldn't surprise me if it ended up on Fite TV since All In was on that. Cost something like £30 though.

According to a now deleted Instagram post by Corey Graves’ wife (Amy Polinsky), he has been cheating on her with Carmella.

This may be totally below me to do but I’m hurt. I’m sad. I’ve put 11 years into supporting a man to accomplish his dream only for him to punch me in the gut! I’ve been through suicide attempts, alcoholism, among so much more with him and stuck by his side. The kicker is finding out that he’s been sleeping with one of my daughters role models all along. @carmellawwe and @wwegraves I hope you guys are happy. I really do!

He’s a bit of an arse on Twitter by all accounts, not that I’ve been reading it myself.

Never been a fan of Carmella. I liked Graves initially, but when he started hating on people he used to enthuse about (Aries, Banks), for the very same reason he liked them I started to dislike him. I understand it's possibly a call from above, but surely you'd be a bit smarter about it, and not call people for the very thing you used to praise them for.

Be interesting to see if he calls the Women's Elimination Chamber match tonight. Hopefully the crowd give 'em hell. I gather it was supposed to close the show, but they swapped it at the last minute. Card is dire, both Chamber matches have potential though. At least it's a 3:30am finish. The Rumble sagged to hell in the second half of the show.

Doing two PPVs in between the Rumble and Mania seems really unnecessary.

A pointless double screen interview interrupting the Cruiserweight match, which is already relegated every month to the pre show, to find out what the nWo the New Day are up to...

Would love to know the viewing figures for 205 Live, because I find it hard to believe many care for what is quite blatantly filler programming.

I’ve never understood 205. I can only see that it costs wwe money. Does it attract a single person to subscribe to the network or attend a live show? I really can’t imagine that it does. It just seems a waste of money on WWEs part.

I can’t see Sky Sports wanting Main Event when their contract is up either, which is another waste of time, but at least WWE are currently getting paid for that.

Mark Henry making sure to get a hug off Charly Caruso.

Definitely overdoing the staged double team moves here. Clearly forced to make them appear like proper tag teams.

Carmella and Naomi eliminated first. Sure hasn’t been their week, huh...

Banks & Bailey. :wub: I enjoyed that, the parallels to last year, the AMAZING IIconics, they told a story NXT style, over time and in the ring, rather than through dire promos. Bailey's elbow drop off the top rope pales so much compared to Kairi Sane's though.

I really like the whole Fire & Desire aesthetic too. They were definitely the right final two teams.
