  1. It was great in execution but lacked any kind of substance in between the sticks and came across far too ''precise'' and formulaic, ZBJ is great at everything but conveying emotion whilst Ospreay is raw yet hits his aerial spots effortlessly. Both played to their strengths but really lacked something in the middle which Zayn/Nak had in abundance.
  2. Dave's star ratings were a decent point of reference for me when I was relatively new to wrestling and exploring different eras/companies, nowadays I couldn't give a shit what the general consensus is or what Dave thinks are better matches than others, I like what I like, no-one is going to tell me otherwise. For the record Ryback/Kalisto was one of the best matches on the show so fuck those ratings in the butt.
  3. Remember when Del Rio was bragging about putting Cena out of action? (yeah me neither but it happened apparently) have Cena return as the 4th member of Team New Day thus tying up that loose end. The League cuts off the ring and mocks New day for outnumbering them, Xavier grabs the horn and
  4. Joe took a while to get the TNA stank off him too. Aries, albeit one of TNA's more popular guys isn't an AJ Styles or a Joe, also I suspect the crowd weren't so hot due to the comedown of the opener and Corbin's constant pinch which I wasn't particularly mad at it, I got a kick out of Corbin's trash talk being clearly audible, ''sit down pig boy'' being one of his highlights.
  5. Nakamura/Zayn should probably scoop all the awards but Joe had the best fucking performance on the show which really speaks volumes for how much Balor winning sucked ass. But I understand it, just wish Joe mauled him to dust post-match.
  6. Is it out of the realms of possibility they're keeping the title on Balor with the UK tour in mind?
  7. Joe is in the form of his life, boy did that cut actually add an extra dynamic to the matches brutality, the moment he snaps and eventually wins the title (if he isn't being called up) is going to be something else. I could feel a million hearts breaking when Bayley lost. Nakamura/Zayn is going to be tough to beat this year, Nakamura instantly becomes he most charasmatic guy on the roster, he should be ''attraction only'' like Lesnar was initially.
  8. On paper this looks like show of the decade, with only one match I'm not really arsed about in Crews/Samson (has this been confirmed?). Unpredictability, major name debuts, title matches, great professional wrestling build up. This is certainly my wrestlemania this year. Predictions: Joe/Asuka/Nakamura/Crews/Revival/Aries.
  9. Can't see it personally, Joe is being groomed into the NXT ace and will carry things at the top end. Finn on the other hand could do, with the balor club in tow.
  10. Well sure, he's a father and adults shouldn't be hurling abuse and expletives towards wrestlers they loathe for no real justifiable reason other than their own dumb agenda. I don't see anything wrong with what he said. I think he clearly get's his character, he's transformed back into the ass kicker he was in the Shield as of recently, it wasn't his fault a senile old out of touch owner of everything wrestling mismanaged him to the point of no return.
  11. I think Roman was purposefully looking dejected and pissed off as some form of foreshadowing for a turn, to Niners point he has been booked as a badass since his comeback, it's a pity it's probably too late, the overwhelming crowd apathy and disdain is a complete overreaction to what is a really fucking good wrestler. Crowd was awful too tonight, RVD chants in 2016? really?
  12. man that shit was a massacre in comparison to this I kinda feel bad for Roman, he looks completely dejected. Nothing is working for him.
  13. Shane/Taker segment should have gone on last, but as usual, Vince has other ideas. Sunday is going to be fun for all the wrong reasons. and it essentially confirms Shane is going to die being thrown off the cell.
  14. Can't seem to find the theme options after choosing the Nise Black/Blue theme, it's like reliving my shroom infused adolescence.
  15. Yeah the receipt in the Raw match with Seth destroying his nose, which begs the question, is Cena that careful of a worker to not apply the hold correctly in fear of popping off someones head? I don't get it, hell even Austin has pleaded with him to tighten that shit up and he didn't.
  16. Well sure, 2016 Hogan clearly doesn't have his gimmicks on in that pic, where's the bandana? the shades? those are important pieces to his anti-aging palette and let's face it Hogan has looked 50 since he was about 25. My point still stands.
  17. I think people have a heightened affection for legends/iconic figures like Flair, Austin and Hogan and couldn't imagine them aging like normal people. Hogan looks the same as he did 20 years ago, Austin too. Flair looks like a scrotum.
  18. Another reason to loathe Seth Rollins. Seth Rollins made Sting old? C'mon dude, Rollins walks along the same line of clumsiness RVD does. I'm probably just bitter Sting didn't retire after last years Mania when he should have. I agree with you to a point but the spot itself (the buckle bomb) didn't look reckless or botched. It just looked like a 56 year old who's body wasn't in condition to be in the ring anymore took a move he shouldn't have taken. I'll concede to being a little facetious in my initial comment, you're right. If the production of the match was altered to cater to Sting's age then he wouldn't have suffered the debilitating injury he did. But here we are.
  19. That's probably the worst case of silver linings I've ever heard.

  21. I acknowledge that. You sound a lot of fun to be around. I'm fine with the chanting but sometimes it's over-the-top. The foul language, etc.. it's still supposed to be a family friendly environment. There's no need for someone to be yelling "Sell the fucking moves!" Eh NXT shows are marketed towards neck beards and impact refugees, sure I can accept that the foul language has no place at a show with kids in the building, but Eva shouldn't be in the ring at all, she should be at the PC training for at least a year like Josh and the other signee's that have zero wrestling experience are. It shouldn't have to come to people concluding she's intentionally being really bad (when it's not the case, she's just awful) to justify her place on the show, because NXT is awesome and has to always make sense or something. Eva's position in NXT is driven by ulterior motives.
