  1. Hi guys,

     

    I've been reading through different parts of the board, and there seems to be a few different views about good WWE is at this time. So I thought a nice simple poll to sum up the boards feelings about WWE as a whole. In 2015, including the WWE Network, there's WWE television shows like Raw, SmackDown! and NXT, all new content and some good to great new original shows and a whole host of new and old stars on TV. People are split over booking decisions and which talent are getting pushes, which of course is nothing new.

     

    So with the recent all time low rating of a non-holiday Raw, how do you feel about the WWE product?

  2. Here's a million dollar question.

     

    I've watched all of 1996 and the first few weeks of 1997, is Debra REALLY that bad or is she a tremendous actress? I mean, it's.. wow. Whenever she's on the mic discussing Benoit and Woman, or her big smile looking right into the camera.

     

    Which is it? I think I know..

  3.  

    Any word when they're going to upload more Nitros?

     

    Slight bump if anyone ever hears anything, please let us know.

     

    I'm watching every Nitro in order along with their respective PPV's, the Nitros being down to 1.5 hours with no breaks are such a breath of fresh air. The whole shows are so put together that I don't want to leave the screen, whereas if I watch any WWE Raw the last ten years I usually play games on my phone or do other things around the house while it's on.

     

    I'm just coming up to Halloween Havoc, October 1996, so i'm going to run out sooner or later of episodes to watch.

     

    Oh, and how great was Lex Lugers theme song? 

     

     

    Update, i'm now at Starrcade 96, which means my run is nearly over and no more Nitros have been added yet.

     

    Quick question, this is the biggest PPV of the year for WCW, they have been building Benoit vs Sullivan very heavily, then the week before the PPV they randomly throw Benoit vs Jarrett on there, what's the deal with that and not having the Sullivan match? I know the Jarrett situation with the Horsemen but still.

     

    Also, christ why did they keep giving Debra the mic to talk about Woman every week?

  4. I'll be cheering on Sheffield United because of their manager being our former manager, Nigel Clough had a couple good years at Derby.

     

    And i'll be cheering on little Burton Albion in the third tier of English football (That's crazy) because LOL Derby.

     

    All joking aside, there's rumours Steve McClaren might even join Newcastle before the end of the season to try and keep them up. I don't have any issue with him leaving, he's done a good job since he's been with us, but I fear the team will be broken up after two years of not getting promoted with arguably the best squad in the league.

     

    McClaren might go, Hughes might go, Hendrick, Bryson, Mascarell back to Real Madrid, Bent back to shitty Villa, Ince back to Hull.

     

    Come to think of it, it's not been the same since Jordan Ibe went back to Liverpool, he wasn't the cause of all this happening but the two do go hand in hand timewise.

     

    Rant over.

  6. Liverpool have recalled Ibe from Derby, i'm not very happy about this. I hope he gets a few first team matches for Liverpool coming up, because he was really developing well at Derby. I just hope with George Thorne returning soon, this hasn't got too much of an after-effect.

  7. The latest announcement from WWE is that the WWE Network will launch in the UK and Ireland on January 19th, six days before the Royal Rumble.

     

    The price points are £9.99 for the UK and 12.99 euros for Ireland. This is roughly one third more expensive than the US version however it does of course keep with the 9.99 price point internationally. Interestingly, it's probably the same rough price as the people who were using a VPN to access the network this whole time anyway, which makes us all suckers for not accessing it that way.

     

    Lastly, it has been said it's the same version as the US get, which is a relief to me as i've heard rumours we were getting a streamlined version after all was said and done.

     

    So if someone more clued up than me can answer, why have Sky put the price of their PPV's up with the knowledge (assumedly) that WWE were releasing the network for half the price of Sky's PPV price point?

  8. Very disheartened to not get my NXT fix this week (and to add to that, XWT was down too, whatever that is) 

     

    I have maybe bought 2 WWE PPV's on Sky Box Office in my life, and that was when I was younger and able to stay up til 3 or 4am to watch them live. 

     

    I don't think a lot of people are going to pay £20 to watch pay-per-views, especially when they are between 1 and 5am (Depending on daylight savings..) - I certainly won't be. As the above poster said, i'll continue with my Sky subscriptions because of the football coverage, but when my next 12 month period comes around (Just started a new contract when I upgraded) I will be thinking about leaving, certainly. I'll miss watching Raw every week in hassle free-no download needed- HD, but that's a sacrifice i'll have to make.

     

     

    TL;DR - They're REALLY testing the patience of the UK fans.

     

    Next month will be a whole year since the Network launched over in the states. Too much stop-start announcements about our Network, the worst being advertising the network as much as five minutes away, and then pulling it with no explanation (STILL no official explanation)

     

    I hate to be called an entitled kiddy, but man, there's MONEY on the table, WWE!

     

    Uch, rant over.

  9. The Jarrett/JR work on the Ross Report has me genuinely interested to grab the Wrestle Kingdom 9 show, I hope i'm not too disappointed given as i'm someone with zero Japanese interest.

     

    A question while i'm talking, does anybody have any clue about the UK Network launch? They've half-hinted that it'll be in the new year, but as of yet nothing. Anybody heard as much as a rumour or suggestion when it's going to kick in? We're up to almost 11 months now from the US launch.

  10. The Vaudevillans short film was the greatest. Encore.

     

    The crowd doing the Peter Griffin 'ouch' chant when Bailey was selling her knee was brilliant too.

     

    THANK YOU.

     

    I was wondering what the fans were chanting to during that segment, it is so obvious now you point it out. Wasn't completely into it which is why I missed the reference.

  11. Surprised there's no Watch Dogs thread on here already, i've searched around for a while and didn't see one. I had a question about the ending, but this could also serve as a Watch Dogs thread if anyone else wants to discuss this (getting older now) game, there's new DLC for it this month too.

     

    My question is:

     

    At the end, Jordi turns on you, then immediately afterwards tells you where your hostage is and seems on good terms with you.

    Can someone set me straight on what happened there exactly?

     

    Also, my thoughts on this, BRILLIANT game. People said it was overhyped and overrated, personally I couldn't wait to play it, when I realised I was on the last mission it made me kinda sad.
