  1. UKFF Questions Thread V2

    Because they're completely pointless. Exciting in the ring, but Jesus is their act the biggest pile of nonsense. Lorne Malvo got in before me though, with a better explanation.
  2. The Official UKFF RAW Thread...

    The Strowman angle started out a lot of fun, but ended up being a real let down. The second he went into the production truck, it went to hell. Then Stephanie calls to put him back in the match and it's all over. As others have said, he should have just been taken from the match. It would also leave a Lesnar vs Strowman re-match as something that could be revisited down the line. As Rick said earlier, it's all just killing time, treading water, running out the clock, whatever way you want to best describe it. They are on hold until next week's Raw, and until after the Rumble. Jason Jordan is extremely easy to dislike at the moment, I wonder how long they'll play it out for. Kurt Angle, unfortunately, feels so forced these days. He never felt like that in his talky bits on his previous run. Other than that, I don't really remember much else happening.
  3. UFC 220: Miocic vs Ngannou

    As most of you have said, the correct answer for this one seems to be a shrug and 'fuck, I don't know'. Stipe has ran at brick walls and bounced off, got back up and ran at them again and knocked them over. Francis has just rang the doorbell and the walls fell down. Ngannou has so many questions over him, and Stipe has answered just about any query there is about him. This surely can't go more than a round, can it? Stipe has taken punishment and came back and KO'd the cream of the crop, but can he come back from shots from Ngannou? Because he'll have to, as one thing for certain about this fight is that Stipe will get hit and he'll get hit clean. You would have to think that Miocic has the more rounded game, based on what we have seen from both of them, and is hoping to pull this fight into deep(er) waters than the first round. I could just as easily see this fight being a double KO (almost like Fedor/Meathead could have been) as I can it going longer than 7 or 8 minutes. As for the LHW title, DC all the way. I want to see Gusty vs DC II.
  4. UFC 221: Rockhold vs Romero

    If I was a paido, there would have been the easiest post upvote ever for your card breakdown there Wand. An incredible amount of time and effort put into writing something interesting for us all to pore over and that will drive discussion. Great work, as always. As for the event, my heart says Yoel and Hunt. Head says Rockhold and Blaydes. I'm well looking forward to seeing Adesanya and Li Jingliang. They could be two men with bright futures.
  5. 2018 Post of the Year Thread

    I just came in here to post the same thing. +1 for Wand's efforts for always increasing interest and driving discussion in the MMA threads. This by itself was a fantastic read, and must have taken an incredible amount of time, but it was also the latest in a continual string of brilliantly informative, fun reads, that Wand goes to the trouble of writing up for every UFC card.
  6. Wrestling Books

    Will do mate, with how good all the reviews have been so far I'm expecting it'll not take very long!
  7. Wrestling Books

    Ordered the book there last night Liam. I'm very much looking forward to it arriving and getting stuck into it!
  8. Raw is 25!

    A few that I'm not sure have been mentioned that are coming to my mind at the minute are: Sid powerbombing Michaels multiple times. Austin and Taker trying to help their opponents (Bret and Sid) win their match for the title, in order for their match at Mania 13 to be for the belt. Plus the promo afterwards by Bret. DX vs The Nation in a Street Fight. The Street Fight between Shawn Michaels and Edge. I want to say it was 2005? Michaels vs HHH for the Big Gold Belt in San Antonio, that ended with Bischoff reversing the decision. Daniel Bryan turning on Wyatt in the Cage.
  9. Royal Rumble 2018 Discussion [& stats]

    Rick, I can't fathom the amount of work that must have went into this, in order to set it up originally and then to keep it updated afterwards. Fair play to you for going to all the effort, it's a great read.
  10. Predictions for 2018 - Prospects, Champions etc.

    You're right Jim, it's incredibly difficult to picture the Stipe/Ngannou fight. Two strong bastards that we know can end anyone's night, and we know Stipe can go through hell and come out the other side, yet we don't know that about big Francis yet (In the cage that is, in life terms he's as tough as they come with what he left behind and the journey he took). I'm just hoping the hype train doesn't terminate here, yet also that it's an exciting enough fight that there would be cause enough for a re-match, as that could work out being the most interesting option at HW, with the way the rest of the division is these days.
  11. Predictions for 2018 - Prospects, Champions etc.

    A really good idea for a thread, especially to look back on a year from now. Francis Ngannou will beat Stipe in a war, then Stipe will win his rebound fight, Ngannou will beat Werdum in the summer, and we'll see the even bigger Stipe/Ngannou II fight at the end of the year. DC beats Volkan. If he fights Glover, he'll beat him too. If Gustaffson is healthy however, he'll dethrone Cormier in the summer, setting up a big re-match with Jon Jones, who I think will serve 18 months, leaving Gusty vs Jones II for the beginning of 2019. I haven't a clue about middleweight. Not a notion. These guys in the top 6-7 positions can all beat each other, and are all top level fighters. Following Colin Bollocks post above, I'm going to say Paulo Costa will go 3-0 for the year, without having to fight any of the elite of the division, and then he'll be in line for a number one contender shot at the start of 2019. I'm looking forward to his development from fight to fight to see if his improvements match his potential. 170 is the most fun of all the divisions in the company at the minute I think. Woodley and RDA is a great match up of two men at the peak of their powers that I can't wait to see how it will play out. Darren Till, Kamaru Usman, Ponzinibhio, Emil Meek, Perry, are all guys that I'm interested to see where their careers go this year, as it's a pivotal point for all of them I think. At Lightweight, Khabib will fight twice, first he will fight Ferguson, and it'll be for the official belt. If the fights close I could see them re-match it. If McGregor gets stripped then I don't think he'll bother fighting Khabib, and he'll go with the Diaz rubber match. If McGregor keeps the belt then I still think Khabib beats Ferguson, but that McGregor has a chance for about 2-3 minutes against him. If it goes past that, then he's being turned to mince on the floor. This whole division is interesting right now mainly because I'm not aware of anyone in the top 15 that have a fight booked currently, though I'm sure I'm forgetting someone. Max Holloway and Frankie Edgar will go the distance, and it'll be close. However Max will edge most of the rounds, winning it 49-46. He'll fight Brian Ortega after that, end the year as champion and consider moving up to 155. Champions at the end of 2018: HW: Ngannou LHW: Gusty MW: Whittaker LW: Khabib FW: Holloway BW: Garbrandt Flyweight: DJ
  12. The "I've just watched ..." thread

    It really was a fantastic angle. I remember watching it at the time and competely bought into Cactus and Chainsaw potentially being dead as a pair of dodo's. In my memory, it was one of the most enduring Raw angle's ever. It always seems to come to my mind if I think of any of those four guys. Out of interest, what position did the network place it on the list HG?

    I guess you can't fault anybody for trying!
  14. Smackdown Discussion Thread

    Strangely, I was reading in last week's Observer that Orton is meant to have two months off between February and April. Although he would likely still have something going on at Mania, as I'm sure he wouldn't want to miss out on that payday. Maybe they do an injury angle for him with somebody in February and he makes a surprise return at Mania and back on TV the next Smackdown or something like that. Or, more likely, he's just not working house shows for those two months, since he's on a reduced schedule as it is.
  15. NJPW World (Streaming Service)

    My NJPW viewing in total amounts to what little of it I watched back when itnwas on The Wrestlig Channel. I subscribe to the Observer and listen to their show reviews, however I never go out of my way to see any of the New Japan stuff that they are talking about. I didn't have time to watch the whole show but I wanted to watch Jericho/Omega unspoiled. It was my first viewing of Kenny Omega in any form as well. The match went way above my expectation level. I thought they delivered a fantastic story, with great performances from both men. In the end I was very glad that I made sure to watch it, as well as that I watched it without knowing thw result at the time. Two thumbs up. If I was to be critical of anything about my experience of the only NJPW match I've seen since about 2005, it would be: Kenny's attire for his entrance - shocking. I don't get the fuss about Callis as an announcer. So I'll add him to Ranallo and McGuinness as other guys that get raved about on commentary that I can't take to. The V-Trigger. Knowing nothing about how Kenny uses this move in his matches, it looked like it should kill you stone dead. Quite clearly, Chris Jericho has a very hard skull. It's almost too strong a move to be an equivalent of a superman punch, lariat, uppercut, etc, yet it doesn't appear to be any more effective than any of those. I guess because I was unaware that it's primarily just a set up move, it helped me buy into the near falls more. So if that's the only negatives I have about the match then there's nothing really to complain about. A sterling job all round, and they had me hook, line and sinker, down that closing stretch.
