    They announced pretty much the remainder of the field on the last two episodes of Shotgun, so the tournament is looking like this now (last four are the new announcements): Matt Sydal Matt Riddle Jurn Simmons Jonah Rock Avalanche Keith Lee Travis Banks Chris Brookes Mark Haskins David Starr Da Mack Absolute Andy Timothy Thatcher Alexander James Last two spots will be determined in a qualifying match between Ivan Kiev and Lucky Kid and a qualifying tournament at the end of February. Also WALTER will challenge Bad Bones for the wXw Championship in the main event of Night 2. I would expect either Marius Al-Ani or Mike Bailey to win the qualifying tournament, very surprised that either one of them won't be in the tournament. I was also hoping for one last big announcement at the end there (possibly a Puro guy, since they had Kanemoto last year), but can't complain. Still a pretty damn good field.

    They are doing live commentary for their bigger shows. It's probably not feasible to fly Alan in for that every time. He still does commentary on Shotgun I believe.

    I don't know why it took me twelve years, but I'm finally going this year for the first time. To overcompensate I already bought tickets for 8 of the 10 scheduled events that weekend. I was holding out hope for Keith Lee from the beginning, very sad that it comes at the expense of Jeff Cobb, but as it stands the line-up still looks pretty awesome.

    Damn it! The closest I've ever come to a prize in this game. Stupid tiebreaker. Well, at least that's one less DVD you'll have to send overseas.

    I don't know, man. Critically I agree, but box office I'm not so sure. Probably have it a bit too low, though.

    After reading this post again, it comes across a bit dickish. I should probably clarify a bit more. Of course it's great that wrestlers are getting work and exposure, what I meant is I hope they don't sign exclusive contracts, that prevent them from working for other promotions. One of the great things about the UK/Ireland scene was that there was relatively little politicking going on and all of that will probably change drastically with WoS and the rumor of PROGRESS and ICW on the WWE network. The PROGRESS on WWE network thing has me especially worried. If this comes true, I expect everyone to be gone who's signed with rival promotions (Scurll, Ospreay, Sabre Jr., everyone who's with WOS), the music will definitely be gone and the thing that worries me the most is that they might have to keep it PG and wrestle WWE style. If that's the case, you might as well call it something else, because that's not PROGRESS anymore in my opinion.

    I don't like the idea of both WWE and Jeff Jarrett meddling with the UK scene, not one bit. My only hope is they won't sign anyone to contracts.
  10. If Princess Bride made it to 16th place, because there's a wrestler in it, then Predator should have at least made it on the list somewhere. Recount! Recount!
  11. Where did you rank them? I had Cinema Paradiso at #77 and Predator at #87.
  12. My movies that didn't make the cut:
  13. Are you sure about that high vote on Seven Samurai being New Blood at #4? I think I had it at #3 on my list.

    The match-up is also happening again at Beyond at their Wrestlemania weekend show.
  15. Nah, I couldn't possibly believe this, so I looked it up. He was on there three times, not since 2014, though. http://walkingdead.wikia.com/wiki/Talking_Dead
