Bravo for TNA iMPACT! (that's at 9pm on a Saturday, & an hour later on Bravo +1), Sky One for WWE Experience (Sunday morning) & Sky Box Office for the Pay Per View events (Summerslam is this Sunday for example). Wrestling is no longer featured on SS1.

WWE Smackdown for the past 2 weeks has been on Sky One on Saturday at 3pm, though that's been because of scheduling conflict on Sky Sports. That continues for this week, too.

TNA Impact! was pretty decent last night. Taz on commentary was nice, although he did make a few slip-ups, like calling Brother Ray by his old Bubba moniker.

D'Angelo Dinero also had good Impact debut, shame that Consequences Creed is becoming more of a jobber of late though.

Looks like the Knockouts are getting there own tag titles, so that makes 3 or 4 sets of tag belts in the company (if including the foreign belts).

Still, massive shame that the whole Heavyweight division is so boring.

Myself and others will be posting streams to most shows and PPV's, if you want to watch anything you can't currently get on SS1.

This week's IMPACT! has been awesome so far. British Invasion vs Beer Money street fight was brutal.

Quality moment between Abyss and Foley.

And TAZ on commentary!

On the basis of that screen capture, Sting looks like a character from Planet of the Apes...

I got a catalogue/leaflet through the post from Silvervision a couple of weeks back which says the sale runs until 18th September, so you've got plenty of time yet unless they decide to prematurely jack up the price.

IMPACT! was fantastic this week. Kept things well paced and fresh all the way through.

Taz was good on commentary, although I miss the odd Don West heel moment's of AMAZE.

Well worth a punt this week for anyone TNA-curious.

Summerslam is this Sunday so it's time for the GRAPL predictions. But first a recap of the rules. I suggest some of you read this as every question I was asked during the bonus round was already addressed in here. Never be afraid to ask a question but don't be a lazy sod either.

GRAPL is simple to play. The Friday before every WWE PPV this year I'll post up a prediction sheet. You enter your predictions and post the sheet. For every one you get right you earn points and points are tallied up on the leaderboard. If you are top of the leaderboard after Wrestlemania next year then you win!

Same as last year you can change your predictions as many times as you like up till the 11pm Sunday deadline. Anyone found to be editing posts after that will be disqualified from that PPV. Any changes to the PPV after I've posted the prediction form will be ignored and the predictions for that match will be null and void. You can enter as little PPV's as you like.

Here is the leaderboard as it stands (in pauper text )

GRAPL LEADERBOARD
Zellery - 59
Corazon - 54 (WTF MON!)
Return of the star - 49
Brick Tamlin - 49
AJ STYLES - 49
Balloon Sod - 48
Adam Pollard - 48
Mockmaster - 48
sw26 - 47
Sykes - 46
Lucien - 42
Trugamez - 41
Drumstick- 41
KKLEIN - 40
Gaminglegend - 38
Lonestar - 37
Irene Demova - 36
Dark Dragon 64 - 36
Chocolate Jim - 35
Prototype - 35
Psychopriest - 34
E-man - 34
Teh Bork - 33
Blackouthero - 33
Cropolite - 30
Ironmaiden - 25
Ginga - 15
Baronzemo - 3


And Summerslam is also the final of our tag tournament........
Image
This is it. After literally months we're down to these four heavyweights.

Return of the Star and Cora
They've battled through every round of the competition have comfortable beaten their opponents everytime. They are yet to beat Zellery and Crop's scores though. Funnily enough both of them are respectively 3rd and 2nd on the leaderboard underneath Zellery who is one of their tag opponents. If they can overcome the odds and win the tag tournament it would probably put them both ahead of Zellery but would mean that they are then in competition with each other over the top spot.

Zellery and Cropolite
Won a bye in the first round and such haven't played in all rounds but everytime they have competed they have scored the highest out of the whole pack. It's been a strange evolution for this team. Cropolite started uninterested and only copied his partner's predictions but has now shown drive to do things for himself, only yesterday he declared he was ready to kick some ass! Zellery........I haven't seen him, not even one post about his ego for a few days. I'm sure he'll turn up eventually for GRAPL but what state will he be in? Funnily enough Zellery seems desperate to win a PPV but so far has failed. His best chance was ruined by none other than..........Cropolite.

Zellites Vs Corastar - The journey ends this Sunday!

Don't know how well this is going to go down with management, but Chris Jericho has admitted to The Baltimore Sun that "the WWE is in crisis".

We're in a crisis period in WWE and we need to build new guys. When Shawn Michaels came back to Raw, he said, 'Whose been built since I left?' On Smackdown we've built [John] Morrison and [Dolph] Ziggler and Cryme Tyme. The Intercontinental title has been rebuilt now with Rey Mysterio. But I can't tell you on Raw who has been built over the last six months. They better do it soon, because when this generation of performers is gone, who will replace them?

Though I agree with his overall point, I can't concur with any of his choices in regards to SD. John Morrison & Dolph Ziggler have strong potential (especially the former), but they're currently no more than good wrestlers. Morrison on the microphone is currently an embarrassment. Neither are in any position to carry SD, & Cryme Tyme will never be main eventers.

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has been teasing in his web blogs about making a major announcement over the next week.

If Jim Ross retires & Lawler leaves to have another go at becoming Mayor, then not only do the WWE have no decent wrestlers, they don't have any decent commentators either. I wouldn't blame Ross, though. He sounds bored out of his skull half the time.
