Loved the semi final match against Ishii too. His Rainmaker headbutt counter was full of OOYAH.


I hadn't realised that their MSG special was WrestleMania weekend. I don't think it'll be physically possible to watch that and all the WWE stuff as well. Do you reckon Vince would mind if I asked him to move 'Mania out a week?

Jay White permanently looks like a rabbit in headlights :lol: Still think it's absolutely bizarre he's champion, I can't ever see him being a big international star and the replacement for Omega like they desperately want him to be.

I think that MSG special was one of the reasons the NXT Takeover was move to the Friday since they were originally on the same day. Some lassies from Stardom are coming over for it too :datass:

Yep, it's the reason NXT moved to Friday.

God, Angle vs Joe was a pile of gooseberry fool on RAW. Just a really bad, short nothing match. I was looking forward to sitting down and watching it and not only was that disappointing but the majority of the show felt like filler.

Highlight was, struggling to get it out of his jacket, Triple H going “I’m doing the job to the envelope”

Have they done this as a make-up for taking her out of the WrestleMania main event? There’s a strange stipulation for RAW that if either Charlotte, Rousey or Becky Lynch turn on each other against The Riott Squad that individual then forfeits the WrestleMania match. Maybe they’ve realised Rousey vs. Lynch is what people actually want to see.

Hopefully. Whilst Charlotte is one of the best they've got just now, this should all be about Becky and Ronda.

I've absolutely loved the Kofi/New Day build up to Mania. Tremendous.

Can't wait for Mania.

They probably switched the title so the Four Horsewomen can all have a title at the end of Mania as they pose together as a happy family. Mania is the only show that has actually mattered these past few years, after all.

Is that time of year again. I've bought WWE2k19 and got my WWE Network sub for Wrestlemania. Time for me to be into wrestling again.

Zero mention of Benoit was weird.

Whenever I see old late 90s/early 00s Vince McMahon all I can see now is the current resemblance to Michael Portillo.

I wonder what the contractual make-up of the XFL is going to be? Which BTW if Vince wasn't so hell bent on wasting money on, he could easily channel that into health insurance in WWE. Salaries outside the top stars are pretty ordinary, especially considering their road expenses.

So this WWE healthcare drama, what is the policy in the NFL or other equivalent sports?
