What a fun main event on Impact, that was great. :mrgreen: Best episode of that show in absolutely ages... is there any corrolation to the fact that it contained no Mr. Anderson?

Capital Carnage & No Mercy 1999 are both up to Pre-Order on SilverVision.

http://www.silvervision.co.uk/products/ ... Discs.html

Highlights...

Disc 1: Jacqueline gets her tits out.
Disc 1: Vince McMahon calls British Tea time a load of "pious crap" & insinuates that Vinnie Jones is gay.
Disc 2: Mankind says "Wankers".

It's up to you whether that's worth £12.

This is it! After a year of predictions we've finally come full circle and reached our last stop, Wrestlemania 26. I'd like to say it was without any hitches but we've had a few on my end and on yours, well Zemo's. End of the day this was very much a year of refinement. Ironing out any problems in the format and finding out what's liked and what isn't. It will make GRAPL 3 all the stronger I promise. There have been some good moments over the year like ROTS 3 PPV winning streak, Pell coming from obscurity to enter only to get disqualified....twice and the Baron's numerous failed attempts at bending the rules. It has been a pleasure from start to finish and I'd like to thank everyone that entered, even Deadpool.

Let's get down to business. Seen as this is the grand finale and it's Wrestlemania 26 there will be 26 points up for grabs. Not only that but to make the finale as pure as possible I've removed most of the filler questions leaving only the Winners. GRAPL winners will be decided by predicting winners. The main events are huge points with lesser matches being only double points. Card is below. Don't get creative! I'll be marking these at 4am after the event so it needs to be as easy for me as possible.


You all know the rules but there are a few key changes for the finale:
The deadline is 2359 on the 28th. That is for everyone.
There is no mystery prize for coming first this time. Only prizes are the grand prizes
No bollocks in the predictions. Write one name and one name only (except for the tag match). Anything extra will render the prediction void.
1st prize is a £15 evoucher at Play or Amazon.
2nd prize is a £10 evoucher at Play or Amazon.
3rd prize is a £5 evoucher at Play or Amazon.
Winners will need to PM me their email registered at either retailer.
In case of a tiebreak I will come up with something.

I wasn't aware of this (I don't think it was widely reported) but WWE composer Jim Johnston is no longer with the company, & hasn't been for some time. Would partly explain why so much of the in-house music in recent times has been so poor & instead licensed out. They simply went into the vault for Luke Gallows.

:shock: When did he leave? Although you bring up an interesting point, within the past few years music has sucked, but he was around at least till 2006 wasn't he? Anybody download the last album? Does it state James A.Johnston as producer?


EDIT - He was listed for Jan 2010 - volume 10 WWE Music - so when did he leave? He's clearly not been that involved with in house music as of lately, unless he just really sucks now.

I have no idea. It was briefly mentioned yesterday on the Figure4Daily radio show with former WWE creative team member Andrew Goldstein. According to an old news story on gerwick he was scheduled to depart in 2006 over some disagreement. Can't find any follow up to that story.

What music is featured on disc 10? If there's some old/remixed songs on there he'd still be named.

NXT is worth watching purely for the Wrestlemania build-up videos.

The Undertaker/HBK and Bret/Vince ones are both wonderful. I'll post them once someone has them up on youtube, both are up there with the Placebo one for me. The Bret vid in particular might be better.
