  1. It's Bobby Lashley surely? He's Baron's mate, not on the card and I don't think he's feuding with anyone or been ruled out of being the ref on TV yet has he?
  2. While I won't be staying up to 4am to watch it, I'll likely put it on a short time later, at 4.45am, while I make/eat my breakfast, skip what doesn't appeal, then watch a bit of it on my lunch break later. I find by breaking it down into chunks, these really long shows are a lot easier to get through. I still see the bits i'm interested in (not much here, admittedly) but it doesn't feel like a 4 hour show when you don't sit and watch it for four hours in one innings.
  3. This must be the least anticipated PPV/Network Special in quite sometime. It's happening tonight, somewhere in Washington state. There's a reason for it too. Just have a look at the state of that card. Anything catching your eye? I'd say maybe Joe Vs Ricochet. It could be very good, but I don't expect it to be in the position to be up to much. Hopefully I'm wrong on that one. Stomping Grounds Card Raw Women's Championship: Becky Lynch (c) vs. Lacey Evans WWE Championship: Kofi Kingston (c) vs. Dolph Ziggler United States Championship: Samoa Joe (c) vs. Ricochet SmackDown Women's Championship: Bayley (c) vs. Alexa Bliss Universal Championship: Seth Rollins (c) vs. Baron Corbin SmackDown Tag Team Championships: Daniel Bryan and Rowan (c) vs. Heavy Machinery Cruiserweight Championship: Tony Nese (c) vs. Akira Tozawa vs. Drew Gulak Xavier Woods and Big E vs. Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn Roman Reigns vs. Drew McIntyre This should be the main selling point though. Another chance to watch Kofi Vs Dolph, in case you thought you had missed/avoided it last time. . .
  4. It was nice to see Manhoef get the win here. Let's hope he gets the fight he wants in Amsterdam and can manage a win there as well to round off his career. Mousasi definitely lost that main event. He dropped at least three rounds, I can't see how anybody scored it for Gegard. A huge win for Lovato here. Coming into this I would have had Whittaker, Mousasi and Romero as the top three worldwide at MW, and I'm not sure of what order other than Whittaker in front of Romero. For Lovato to take a clear decision against Gegard was a huge statement. You might get people saying that Mousasi may have not been 'all in' when it comes to effort, but you could always say that about him when he loses a fight, as it's just his general demeanor. Lovato with the biggest, and likely whenever he retires, the best win of his career here over Mousasi. I'm not sure what's next for both. Machida could be it for Lovato, but it's possible he fights Bader as well. For Mousasi, I could see him taking a legends fight against somebody at 205, now he doesn't have the belt and have to cut some weight.
  5. Somebody with Twitter needs to start hammering this idea out to Sean Shelby and Mick Maynard and get this done.
  6. Jaysus Wand, are you hoping to kill off Zombie or Gaethje altogether? That's be pure insanity. I don't think it would be completely out of the realms of possibility either, as I've heard on some podcast or another that Gaethje doesn't cut much weight. If that is correct then they wouldn't be that far apart on size.
  7. Yeah, Pena was respectful to Wiman in his post fight promo but really Wiman was never in this one. It was a showcase for Pena against a fighter who will add a bit of a name to a resume for a fighter on the rise. I thought that was an impressive debut for Winn. Considering the amount of late notice opponent changes he has had, to go out there and completely out work Spicely on his promotional debut, while giving up so much size, was a boost. He showed he's packing some power and has quick hands. It didn't look a well rounded striking game, but at this stage I wouldn't expect it. Very good wrestling, power and good hand speed will get him somewhere in this division. By the time he's fighting the top level guys he will either have brought the other areas of his game up to speed, or he won't. But for now Winn showed enough that he'll probably win most fights against this level of opponent. Rosenstruik with a KO so fast that I didn't know what happened (I was skipping past a lot of the intros) I had to rewind to see the whole fight. You can't ask for more than that when trying to climb the ladder at HW. I was absolutely delighted for Zombie. By the time I was about to watch I had it in my head that he was definitely losing this fight, probably another war, and that he would get stopped as he's be unable to take as much damage after the amount of war's he had been in. It was kind of how I felt about Justin Gaethje heading into the James Vick fight. Then both men made me look like an idiot and show why we all love them so much. Scree trying to guess what's going to happen in a Zombie fight, just soak it all in. I don't care who he fights next, I'm for it no matter what.
  8. Lineker hasn't helped himself here. After complaining about not being offered fights regularly enough, he has now pulled out of this weekends show for an undisclosed reason (as of now). https://mmajunkie.com/2019/06/ufc-greenville-john-lineker-withdraws-from-rob-font-fight-last-minute
  9. No bother to you Onyx. Do it for the craic. I hope, in keeping with proper tradition, that the task also ends up unfinished.
  10. Aye, 28 for the next few months. I have a feeling @Otto Dem WanzWanz is under thirty as well? I'm sure there are a few other regular posters too, though surely in the minority. Having said that, up until about ten minutes ago I had my slippered feet up on the sofa, with a cuppa, while reading a gardening magazine, while the woman laughed at me and carried on watching Love Island. Age is not but a number and all that carry on I guess.
  11. Dana playing his role of Caesar yet again. I've never watched this show even once, or the types of videos like the one above. White comes accross as an absolute bell end there, which isn't anything new really. After Dana's comments, hopefully Coker throws Loughnane a bone, if his performance and the fight was as good as the chatter about it.
  12. August is going to be a month for title fights it seems. In addition to Andrade Vs Zhang and Cormier Vs Miocic, the Fight Night event ON ESPN + from Montevideo is getting Shevchenko Vs Carmouche. It's interesting that UFC are starting to spread the title fights away from PPV's even though they still haven't pulled the trigger on going back to headlining some PPV shows without title fights yet. https://mmajunkie.com/2019/06/valentina-shevchenko-vs-liz-carmouche-headlines-ufc-on-espn-14
  13. Atlantis Vs Ultimo Guerrero, Mask Vs Mask, CMLL, 2014. The crowd heat for this bad boy is off the charts. Old school noise, rather than modern day chanting. The director loves a camera cut as much as Kevin Dunn though.
  14. I heard Bo on Jericho's show a couple of years ago talking about a load of different things that he was interested in and seem to recall him saying about one of the topics that his brother was even more into it than he was. Which one of those topics it was though, I don't really remember. It may have been the Kennedy assassination come to think of it, but the impression I got was that Bo looked up to his brother and that a lot of his side interests were similar.
