    Your comparison of doing business with an Australian business would apply if said Australian business was financed and backed by an Australian Government that was guilty of numerous human rights violations. If you dig a bit deeper into the origins of this sudden interest by the Saudi Government in sports you'll see that it isn't driven by minimising gender segregation and increasing equality, and is more about PR that allows for a superficial view of Saudi culture overseas, and specifically in the West. For example, while Western media outlets were reporting the news that women would be allowed to attend football matches in three stadiums out of the twenty five in the Kingdom, what was going widely unreported was the stories of women who had attempted to flee from Saudi Arabia due to violence and abuse from their families or husbands, only to be "captured" and returned against their will where they will face what is known as "honor violence". One instance was described by hotel staff in the Philippines where a Saudi female who had run away from her family, telling how two Middle Eastern men who claimed to be her uncles, accompanied by airline security entered her room, and after much screaming and commotion left carrying her with her mouth, hands and feet covered in duct tape before forcing her into a wheelchair and taking her back to a flight to Saudi Arabia. So yeah, like I said, we'll all watch the event so none of us can take any moral high ground, but let's not kid ourselves that this is some sort of move by WWE to support a "culture that is progressing", because that's simply bollocks I'm afraid. They're doing it for the money, plain & simple.

    I was told that my 8-year-old niece went to Kidzania (cross between theme park and work experience) today. She chose to be a journalist, which made me proud. Then I was told she'd written about WWE, which made me proud. And then I read her piece. And I know there's a 99% chance she just made a bizarre factual error, but there's a 1% chance she's doing the type of biting satire that would make me even prouder.

    @air_raid might like this, someone told me to initiate something I'm already doing. I pointed out that I can't initiate, I can continue it. was told to 'not think about it so much, words don't matter'. I pointed out that's not how words work. The other bloke then got quite heated about it and told me how unprofessional I am.

    Chris Jericho said that he pitched the woman's battle royal as the "Sensational Invitation", named after Sherri Martel. That would have been absolutely perfect, but Vince knocked that on the head. Presumably, because Sherri dying in agony in a caravan without any benefits or help from the industry probably isn't something they want to remind people of.

    What a great idea for a thread! Look forward to reading everyone's entries. Mine was actually quite easy to do- the four most important and influential wrestling matches I've seen. They have shaped the way I follow and appreciate wrestling. The match where it all began Ultimate Warriors VS The Perfect Team, WWE Survivor Series 1990 I started to watch a little bit of wrestling here and there during 1990 and I can't say for sure the first match I ever watched. However, the first match from the first full show I ever watched was the Survivor Series 1990 opener. I was already a Warrior fan going into this, and looking at these two awesome teams looked boss. Everyone looked fucking incredible (I didn't care much for Von Erich at the time, though). Perfect was cool, Demolion and LOD looked menacing and Woyah was god-like. Loved the match and the entire PPV holds a very special place in my heart. This was really the beginning of my journey as a wrestling fan. From there on I was a huge Warrior and WWF fan, and like many of the thirtysomethings on here jumped straight onto the merch train too. This replaced Turtles (which had replaced Ghostbusters, which had replaced He-Man) but unlike the others, it never really went away from me. The match that made me want something other than WWE Rob van Dam VS Jeff Hardy, WWE Invasion 2001 This match completely changed my outlook on wrestling. I first became aware of ECW after the Dudley Boys and then Tazz joined WWE, not long after I started getting back into WWE. I started to read up on wrestling online and learn a bit more what I have missed, as well as WCW and ECW. ECW piqued my interest, but never enough for me to watch it on Bravo (apart from the odd quick match here and there, a Tanaka VS Mike Awesome match stands out). I became a fan of pretty much every ECW guy that then joined WWE from 1999-early 2001 (except Justin Credible, he was shit) and I had heard a lot about RVD. When I finally got round to watching him for the first time at Invasion, I was blown away. Everything he did was so different and innovative to anything I had seen. Immediately afterwards, me and my friend started to pick up old ECW videos and would then prefer watching it to WWE at the time. However with ECW dead, we were now hungry for an current alternative to WWE. Which leads us to... The match that opened the door to Indy Wrestling AJ Styles VS Jonny Storm, FWA British Uprising 1 Me and my friends had watched a fair bit of 1998-2000 era ECW at this point and were interested in those that hadn't since signed with WWE. My friend used to listen to the Alex Shane & Tommy Boyd show on TalkSport (or whatever it was called back then) every Saturday at work and mentioned that this promotion called FWA would bring over old ECW guys now and then- he mentioned Little Guido and Steve Corino. By this point we were casting our wrestling interest net quite wide and had attended one of those WWA shows at Wembley Arena (which in some ways was the pre-cursor for TNA), as well as a couple of Hammerlock shows in Herford. We found out FWA were running a show in our local town (the now fabled Broxbourne Civic Hall/Spotlight Centre) and thought we would pop along. The import was Christopher Daniels, who I had heard of. Anyways, we loved the show and then after watching Revival on Bravo, were totally sold on going to see their big show British Uprising at York Hall. We were psyched at seeing Balls Mahoney and Jerry Lynn, and were also intrigued by AJ Styles, whom we had heard quite a bit of noise about- especially when half-following TNA results online. Then the AJ Styles VS Jonny Storm match happened- wow. What a fucking display of athleticism. We liked Jonny from the Jorge Castano and Jody matches we'd already seen, but AJ had a similar effect on us as RVD did when we saw his Jeff Hardy match the previous year. Afterwards, we wanted more of that kind of wrestling. RoH and TNA's X Division were regularly watched afterwards, and then we started to dig deeper into a rabbit hold of not only indy wrestling, but also Puro & Lucha. This match opened our eyes to indy wrestling. The match that made me appreciate and love World of Sport Johnny Kidd VS Cameron Knite, RBW Enfield January 2004 Finally, we move onto yet another match that changed my outlook and broadened my horizons when it came to wrestling and this is probably the most personal one. I started training to wrestle in late 2003 and Johnny Kidd was one of the head trainers, alongside Jorge Castano. Before this match, I hadn't attended a Johnny Kidd session yet so I was interested to see him wrestle. One of the promoters in RBW described him as a technical wrestling god, so as a huge fan of technical wrestling, I was keen to see what he was like. From the bits of WOS I had watched over the years I wasn't a fan, but that's because I grew up on a diet of power & paint, OTT colourful characters and hardcore high spots. Traditional British wrestling seemed boring to me. That view was about to change forever. Johnny Kidd won the British Middleweight in a match I can only describe as a masterclass in how to wrestle hold-for-hold and make it look easy. Watching that match was like when Neo was able to see everything in binary at the end of The Matrix. All Cameron Knite had to do was outstretch his left arm and let Johnny work magic- and he did. This match not only shaped my love for British wrestling as a fan but also as a performer, and afterwards I started to study tapes of Kidd, Johnny Saint, Steve Grey, Mal Sanders and then eventually onto pretty much everyone else from the WOS days- whatever I could watch I would watch it. @herbie747sticking the WOS footage on Sky gave me so much to love and learn from. As well as from a wrestling perspective, Johnny became a trainer and also a friend. A genuine and humble gentleman who has time for anyone. I had the chance to wrestle him working the camps back in 2005 or so, dream come true and career highlight. I can sit there and watching old British technical wrestling for hours on end and lose myself watching it. If you want evidence of the skill involved in being a wrestler, look no further than somebody like Johnny Kidd.

    Speaking of the Enfield Poltergeist, investigator Guy Lyon Playfair, who was on the scene, and never stopped championing events as 100% real, died a couple of weeks ago. He was a consultant on Ghostwatch, and even into his eighties, he could be seen getting livid on various TV shows at anyone being sceptical towards Enfield. Maybe he'll possess a little girl and get her to recite nursery rhymes in a Phyllis Pearce voice. On another topic, if anyone's got a spare 20 minutes and is interested, I've written a thing about one of my favourite one-off Fortean events ever, the Birmingham housewife who discussed Bruce Forsyth with, and gave mince pies to the alien fairies who invaded her home.

    Austin has enjoyed his fair share of bald bastard jokes; Triple H has spent an entire career mocked for the size of his nose and every time he takes a break from the jumbo juice he’s called fat; The Undertaker is routinely mocked for having the hair of Pat Butcher, the face of a scrambled crepe, the tan of a hangover piss and a pair of spaniels ears for norks; The Rock is literally mocked for having had a boob job. Wrestling is an aesthetic business. It’s looks, front and centre, despite what the mutants want you to believe. If we were to not judge women’s acts on their looks, we’d weirdly be doing them a disservice as the first insult of a males act is usually aesthetics related.

    I've done a tweet thread thing on the best way to pay for any streaming stuff over Mania weekend that may be helpful to some. The long and short of it is - if you can sign up to FITE and install their app for the first time on a device, you can get equal credit back for every purchase in the first 24 hours. I. E. You could buy 2 PPV's and get equal credit to buy another 2 back. If you use one of the promo codes I mention in the thread on their app, you get $15 credit as a new user also. Alternatively you can join Club WWN ($9.99 a month) and get 50% off the WWN shows (but not Bloodsport, Janela or Shimmer - because Gabe) and you can join the ROH Honor Club ($9.99 monthly) and get Supercard Of Honor for Free.

    Who else do you put in to open? Haseeb at Lancs? Tipped to be the next great opener but had a terrible 2017. He *could* throw his name in with some big scores at the start of the season. I'm still not convinced Stoneman is the right answer either. Couple of 50s, and he seems to have the temperament but not can't convert when it counts. Did all the hard work today and then was out without going on to make a big score. Cook needs a couple of big scores with Essex to find some form, I think that'll show if he wants to turn his form around. The selectors won't drop him though, he pulls out big scores once in a blue moon and he's got too much credit with the selectors to be dropped. I can see him packing it in this summer and taking up spud growing on his farm. First drop is anyone's. May as well offer it on a rotating door at this rate. No one seems to want to bat there.
