  1. I'm not gonna be happy with this storyline until they reveal that Gable is also an illegitimate Angle spawn, and his secret kids have been a tag team this whole time without knowing they share the same Dad. This storyline is already in ridiculous soap opera territory, so why not just go with it full tilt?
  2. CCK won the CZW Tag Titles in Birmingham this week. Best thing about it was the reaction of all those people who never expected CZW titles to change hands on a UK show.
  3. I really want there to be a double twist with the whole Orton/Wyatt Family deal. Have Harper win the Battle Royale and challenge Bray. Have Orton pretend like he's entering the match to "protect" Bray. During the Triple Threat at Mania Orton inevitably turns on Bray, only to find that Bray and Harper were fully prepared for it, and they've been playing Orton all along. Harper's frustration with Orton, him losing to Orton, Bray giving Harper the Sister Abigail and shunning him from the Family, all of it has been part of Bray's masterplan to let Randy think he was in control of the situation and breaking up the Family, when in reality Bray has been pulling the strings all along. If they could pull it off, it'd go a way towards making Bray a legitimate champion and hopefully cement him in a main event position. They could even go on to rebuild the Family afterwards. There's been lots of speculation about Sanity possibly being tied to the Wyatts, especially since Bray's changed his gear to include the symbol of chaos, which is the same symbol all over the gear worn by Sanity. In reality it's because they get their gear made by the same person, but it could all be for the sake of consistency leading to bringing Sanity in as part of Bray's new flock?
  4. They foreshadowed how this is gonna play out back in September: It doesn't make sense for Orton to jump Bray immediately. He's gonna let Bray think he's gotten away with it before he strikes...
  5. Punk vs Austin, using the same storyline they used for the dream match setup on the WWE Allstars game. Unnf.
  6. Nobody I guess. They'll throw another match together to fill the void and put the angle on the backburner until Rollins returns.
  7. It's only just twigged that 5 star wrestling are the same people responsible for that shitty, shitty wrestling game called 5 star wrestling. From what I remember the game was supposed to be a way to fund the wrestling shows, when in reality it looks like it was just a way for them to get the imports they wanted. I know it's probably a really snobbish attitude to have, but I don't count that 5 Star show as a UK Wrestling show. Sure it's a show that took place in the UK, but where World of Sport and WWE actually made a point of utilising and showcasing UK talent, this 5 Star show just didn't. Actually, they seem to have more in common with 1PW than anyone else, and we all know how that went down...
  8. WWE need to have a serious think about how they book their rumbles. The last few have been a case of having a great first half that fizzles out to a shitty finish. I'd seriously consider having a completely left field winner next year and taking a punt on making stars rather than relying on a bunch of guys who just won't be there much longer, or have already had their chance. In fact, next year desperately needs to go to someone like Braun or Joe, or hell, even Big Cass if he floats Vince's boat as much as the rumours make out. They need a new beast instead of having to throw armfuls of cash at guys like Brock or Goldberg, and having someone put on a massively dominant showing in the rumble sounds like a good way to do it.
  9. I understand why WWE (misguidedly) do it, but it's still bullshit that they completely job out all their full time guys to bunch of aging part timers. Goldberg, Brock, and Taker just made the entirety of the WWE roster look like they are in no way any competition for them whatsoever. If the projected Goldberg/Owens match goes ahead at Fast Lane, then I'm assuming Goldberg wins the Universal Title to take that into the match versus Brock at Mania, but what then? They've made the roster look like nobody can stand up to either of those guys, so what do they do about getting the title back off them afterwards? Braun, maybe? But still, it's shit that WWE still refuse to use the older guys to make stars of the new guys. Well, except for them still throwing everything behind Reigns, and putting him seemingly into a Mania program with Undertaker. I just feel like there are guys that could benefit from being made to look good against folks like Goldberg or Brock.
  10. That WWE.com video is hilarious. It's literally 1 minute and 1 second of Tyler walking. Literally just walking.
  11. Randy said himself that he feels like he should change his attire up a bit, so the fact that he hasn't suggests that this whole Wyatt deal isn't going to last very long. It's a bit crap though, because it blatantly gives away that Randy isn't a "proper" part of the family.
  12. I doubt you'll get an actual Women's Rumble. More likely is that they'd have a Women's Battle Royale somewhere down the line for a number one contendership or something? They need to keep the proper Rumble as the once a year attraction it is. If anything they could increase the number of entrants to 40 again one of the years and have some of the women enter with the guys. In fact, Sasha Banks was tweeting about it earlier this week and referencing Chyna and Beth Phoenix, so it's not outside the realms of possibility that we might get one or two of the girls in this year's. From doing some quick math, it looks like there are still 8 or 9 spots that haven't been announced, which I'd assume is for surprises/NXT/Cruiserweights and possibly one or two of the girls.
  13. I thought Galloway didn't renew his TNA deal?
  14. If you're gonna revolt over that, then I hate to see what you're gonna do when he beats Owens for the Universal Title on Sunday...
  15. Have wXw signed a FloSlam deal to stream their shows? Because if they have, then that's the last you'll see of Pete or any UKCT competitors until their WWE contracts run out. It's the same reason why they got pulled from What's gonna be interesting is that there's a PROGRESS show scheduled for this weekend, and all of British Strong Style are supposed to be there. But then rumours abound that Tyler and Pete may be showing up either at Takeover or the Rumble itself. It's not outside the realms of possibility for them to perhaps appear on Takeover and catch a red eye flight that would get them to London in time for the Sunday afternoon show, but bloody hell that'd take some doing. I'm still in two minds about this whole WWE deal. If they do something, great, if they don't then they've successfully fucked over 16 of the top guys in the UK and stopped them from working in a lot of other places.
  16. Tommy's changed a bunch of his Social Media handles to Aleister Black. Dunno if that's gonna be his new name? This tournament was great, by the way. But then I never had any doubt that all of these guys would go out there and put on a hell of a show. I was genuinely chuffed when Tyler won, and Pete Dunne has been set up to look like an absolute killer thanks to this tournament, so I'm interested to see where it goes from here. I'm hoping that WWE are planning to do something soon, because we're already seeing guys like Tyler and Pete having to pull out of shows they had planned due them being streamed on services like FloSlam which violates the contract guys have signed with WWE. On the one hand it's great that so many places now have a way to be seen by a lot more fans and gain a lot more exposure, on the other hand WWE needs to get moving on utilising the guys they have signed up to maintain the momentum generated by the tournament to begin with. EDIT: Hey @Shaun2J , did you mark out as much as I did for these little gems:
  17. I preordered one with the swish Collector's Edition of Zelda and a pro controller. I'm still wavering on whether or not this is a good idea.
  18. Yep, the last shows Ryan ran were as Pro Wrestling Kingdom, and they were actually really good. I'm quite looking forward to these new shows, but they still haven't confirmed the venue they'll be running in Birmingham yet.
  19. I'm still wondering how they're gonna put a weekly show together? I'd assume they'd run tapings in the same way NXT does, but with the relationship that's developed with companies like ICW, PROGRESS, Rev Pro and others, it'd be nice if they could maybe include some footage from some of those shows and try to cover the UK scene a little as well as just showcase the 16 guys? It also seems like World of Sport did well with it's pilot and will be getting a full series on ITV. It'll be interesting to see if WWE start trying to sign up more guys to the UK wing rather than a "proper" WWE contract in an effort to snap them up before ITV does? Either way, it's a pretty exciting time for UK wrestling. It's been building for a while, and I'm super stoked to see a whole bunch of guys I've watched travel the length of the country year after year getting better and better have all the hard work finally pay off for them. And I pick Pete Dunne to win the tournament. If Neville wasn't beasting 205 Live at the moment, I'd totally put Pete in there in full blown "Bruiserweight" mode. Oh, and look out for Dan Moloney. I've known Dan pretty well since he was 12 and watched him train his ass off to get to where he's at. That kid's going places, but you could always tell that he had something. I've gotta shout out for Tyler Bate just the sheer Black Country-ness of his clips on the preview show. Tyler's another one who's been doing this since he was literally a kid, and he's spectacularly good for his age. Talent well beyond his years. This weekend is gonna be pretty cool. A (hopefully) awesome tournament on the Network to watch, and I get to go check out PROGRESS debuting in Birmingham on Sunday afternoon. Nice!
  20. Exciting times! My initial thoughts are: - I've known Dan Moloney since he was 12 and first walked into wrestling training. I'm so happy for that kid it's unreal. - Roy Johnson better be keeping his "body guy" gimmick - Pete Dunne should win this. Then they should immediately play off the fact that Jack Gallagher beat Pete Dunne to qualify for the CWC earlier in the year. You can't say he didn't warn everyone.
  21. I liked the late old school feel to this, with segments happening outside the arena, and a parking lot beatdown and junk. They even let Enzo drop a joke about stuffing Lana. It was a decent show. Oh, and Cesaro and Sheamus NEED to go by "The Professionals" now. NOW.
  22. I'd imagine he will be doing something at the Rumble and Mania, but that'll probably be it as far as matches go. He'll probably put in a few appearances, no doubt get into some kind of altercation with Brock, but I can't see him earning enough points to make him worth being in the 2nd highest bracket?
