Thanks for the heads up, Maf, I'll definitely be watching that.

Spent a bit of time catching up with NJPW tonight, awesome match between Ishii and Evil at Dontaku. I think...I think I love Tomo?

Really have made these shows bigger than WrestleMania in terms of big name matches with the geriatrics...just without the build and in front of a gooseberry fool crowd (well, I’m sure the real crowd are fine, but for TV all you see is The House surrounding ringside on their sofas not giving a gooseberry fool).

Oh, and at a gooseberry fool time.

The 80 minute Game of Thrones finale is on during Money in the Bank so it’ll be interesting to see how that PPV does.

"We're back in the wrestling business" a knowing nod to Ted Turner ringing up Vince McMahon and telling him "Hey Vince, I'm in the rasslin' business!"

If only to be a fly on the wall of WWE this morning...



A glorious day.

It's great for the industry. AEW haven't really put a foot wrong yet. Looking forward to seeing what their schedule is. They really don't need to be any more than 2 hours a week maximum and I'd say an hour a week will be fine initially.

As a nostalgia bump :datass:

But who in their right mind wants to be compared to the dumpster fire brand that is WCW these days :lol:

2 hours would be perfect given the size of the roster.

SHO has been the MVP so far, easily the best 2 matches with Shingo and Dragon Lee.

Also I realise he's in the twilight of his career and I've never seen him in his prime but Taguchi is just...garbage to me

Sounds like WWE rights are moving to BT.
