I hope Rusev's new gimmick is that he's a sex addict.

There was a mother in the crowd visibly covering her young son's ears as Lana ran down all the places Rusev wanted to have sex with her in.

At least King's Divorce Court, which was the MAIN EVENT of the show, was entertaining in its absolute stupidity. The rest of the show was just dead, as were the crowd again, aside from brief moments like with the Street Profits. Kevin Owens was nowhere to be seen, nor was it addressed why he showed up so late last week.

Sex addict Rusev for champ! As stupid as that whole thing is, the kings court segment from last night already has over 3 million views on YouTube, so people seem to be interested!

Missed the first hour of AEW because I went for a nap and forgot about it starting at 12 since the clocks changed :fp:

Didn’t realize Crown Jewel started at 4! Well the kick off anyways, the battle royal is on. How long is the main show supposed to be?

Well this show is already living up to its heritage of being a massive pile of gooseberry fool.

Bet Lesnar has one foot on his plane already.

About 8:30pm, I think.

AEW was once again really good last night, though the crowd were the weakest in terms of noise level thus far.

Tyson Fury’s entrance was the real main event of Crown Jewel. I don’t know if it’s the same song he uses in boxing, but he came out to “It’s Your Thing” by the Isley Brothers. Epic light show and firework display. Strowman turned to the referee at one point and said “this is bullshit”.

Match was poor. Fury is no Rodman ‘97. Fury’s selling was also very unconvincing...mainly because he simply didn’t bother, at one point opting to sit up exactly like The Undertaker. After the match, Strowman hit the powerslam and Fury stayed down for...oooh...20 seconds.

ITV Wrestling's Twitter feed don't even state a time for AEW any more.

Nothing again.

Ring bathed in red light again for Rollins vs Bray. What makes this even worse is that it's falls count anywhere so there are points where you can't see them as it's pitch black. :fp:

Is Vince a big Virtual Boy fan or something?

Well I wasn’t expecting a title change at a crown jewel event!

But Wyatt is a Smackdown guy and he’s supposed to be on Miz TV tomorrow? They’re not going to have Wyatt on Smackdown and The fiend on Raw are they? :fp:

He needs to hold onto that belt for over a year.

Cage match for the Universal title between Rollins and Wyatt scheduled for RAW on Monday.

The red mood lighting is obnoxious. It didn’t work in 1997 when they used it with Kane, but back then they actually realised it after a few matches.

Nice to see how much the women’s match appeared to mean to many of the women/young girls in the crowd.

I really don't want to see another Rollins/Wyatt match. If they flip the title back, might as well give up on the Fiend.

I also like how two of the main criticisms of HIAC were the red lighting and multiple curb stomps and it felt like they doubled down on both of those here.

I'm still trying to get my head around the whole Tyson fury and Cain Velasquez thing. I just can't figure it out. My only rational explanation is that the Saudi's insisted they were brought in. That's in.

On Cain, if the rumours are right that he's signed a multi year deal with WWE then maybe they are going to make him disappear and get in shape so he returns for a redemption win over Brock. But it all seems very odd.

with cain he needs to go have surgery on his knee, his injury which has been a thing for a while now looks like is worse than hoped.
