Stardom are streaming the first round of the Cinderella Tournament for free right now if anyone needs something to watch.

WWE changed the camera angle for RAW last night, filming the stage rather than all the empty seats. AEW showing them how to do it...

So is this free stuff on the network a temporary move due to the covid virus to try to get more people to subscribe to the network by seeing what’s available or is it a permanent move?

WWE has said it’s for a “Limited Time” but I don’t think they’ve announced an end date.

AEW rolling back the years tonight by having Tony Schiavone doing play-by-play commentary. So good.

“WE’RE OUTTA TIME!”

I've taken advantage to watch a bunch of 'best ever' matches I've never seen, like Steamboat vs Savage and the two great matches at Wrestlemania X.

Holy gooseberry fool how did people stand Vince McMahon saying "unbelievable" so much?

If WWE had put that Hardy guff out it would be rinsed.

Yeah that Matt Hardy bit last night was muck. Broken Matt Hardy and all his shenanigans was funny 4 years ago when it was a nice distraction from the WWE at the time, but now in it’s fifth year and third major company it’s all a bit embarrassing trying to recapture previous success.
Also, I’m already not too impressed with Brodie Lee.

So there is apparently some fuss about Brodie Lee doing a parody of Vince having dinner. What's this story about Vince Mcmahon always eating first? That's one crazy Vince story I've not heard yet.

Major change to WM card:

Reigns is out of the title match as he is in the vulnerable category due to Coronavirus.

Fair play to him, would have been a hard but totally logical decision.

They should cancel the show to be honest. It's going to look a really weird show when compared to Manias of the past.

Only WWE would have thought it's a good idea to make a recent cancer survivor work during a pandemic in the first place.

Don't think that needs to be hidden. He's immunocompromised so it's not worth the risk at all. Shame because this woud be the first title win he wasn't booed at.

Further changes to WrestleMania (which has now been taped, along with the RAW the night after).

Goldberg’s new opponent is:

Braun Strowman

Also:

WWE United States Champion Andrade will not be wrestling having suffered an injury on this past Monday's episode of RAW.

Buddy Murphy, The Miz, Asuka and Cesaro won’t be there either.

So I wonder if Goldberg will now be holding onto the title so he can drop it to Roman in the summer,

I’m amazed they think they can still shift this show on PPV.

This “boneyard” match could be entertaining, and Orton/Edge will probably go all over the building, but the rest of this show is going to be no fun to watch at all. Even AEW struggled this week with a lack of atmosphere and they’ve done a much better job with being creative than WWE’s efforts. Mania is just going to be an elongated drag.

WWE also has a habit of overproducing things even more on taped shows.
