Sky are really plugging WrestleMania this year. I've seen the trailers everyday, on practically every single Sky channel. Even Sky News. For some strange reason the WWE are really plugging the Matt/Jeff Hardy encounter - like that's going to sell the event to a casual observer.

Box Office. Want to watch this properly.

It'll no doubt be on Justin, though.

If they really want to go with the EVIL Matt Hardy, he should send Jeff a text saying the dogs are in the yard. :shifty:

I booked the day off work on Monday so will hopefully be watching live. I'm hoping to be able to find a good stream. I don't have Sky Sports.

Best £3 I ever spent.

:mrgreen:


Mine came this morning as well. Out of interest, did anyone else's arrive unsealed and with a small white HMV sticker (with the barcode and order details) stuck onto the front of the outer sleeve?


No. Mine was sealed.


Interesting. Thanks for the reply, I'm going to email them now and see what they say.

It's alright for some, I have to catch the 5.50 to Preston from Glasgow after the event in order to attend my grandfather's funeral. :fp:

Hardy Hardy could to casual fans, especially if they haven't seen the gooseberry fool build-up. However, I get the feeling that many people don't want to see them fight.

Jeff may not be everyone's cup of tea, but he's a ratings draw. The title match this year should have been Edge vs. Meth Hardy for the belt, and perhaps Christan vs Matt. Then have a TLC match later down the line as the blow off.

In the Attitude era they are who I watched for. I imagine plenty of people did.

Edit: I'm going to be watching on Virgin Media.

I bet it strawberry floats up, again. They always strawberry float up the Wrestlemania stream.

I don't think there's many people who post in this thread that don't like Jeff, not sure where you got that from Balloon.

I'm going to buy it and watch on my hdtv thank you very much, streams are awful at best, oh and it's on Sky Box Office Mocky so you could order it regardless of whether you have the Sky Sports package or not.

That's true, but I've seen him get plenty of stick on other forums.

Really? What sort of things is he criticised for?

...

I'm honestly shocked.

Botched spots and being crap on the mic are the 2 biggest complaints. While I think the latter is true, I don't care about the former. He's a high flyer, so he's going to strawberry float up. that's realistic.

Oh, and almost everyone on the ROH board hates him (not that I go there often...I think I've been twice). They treated him like gooseberry fool and booed him out of the building. That was really quite sad to watch.

Nah mic skills was the first thing that sprung to mind too don't worry! :lol:

I can't believe people would criticise him for strawberry floated up spots though, he produces the riskiest and biggest spots of any wrestler in the WWE, I think he's earned a margin for error that others simply don't have.

Exactly. He's a little clumsy, but it's expected. And he's on meth. That rots your face.
