    Doing alright here. Wish I'd had thought to include Zack losing to Sanada because just like the Ibushi match you knew the loss from the New Japan Cup would be avenged. I love New Japan bell to bell but the 50/50 stuff makes a lot of matches predictable. With that said, today's show was great. Zack and Sanada meshed incredibly well, Goto v Ishii was a great fight. Next shows have a few interesting fights on. MiSu is nailed on to beat Switchbland, Jay's 3 for 3 so it's time for him to lose, he's not winning the block. No fucking chance. Since Kenny hasn't lost yet I think he might lose to Juice although I'd be more confident in them setting up Juice for a title shot if he didn't already have a belt of his own. Still think Kenny loses so he doesn't get too far ahead of Kota. And because he won their last meeting. I'd be amiss if I didn't mention how gutted I was when Fale got his semi-regular win over Okada. This means they'll be wrestling yet again at Destruction doesn't it? Ughh.

    Oh fuckkkkkkk offffffffff. The division isn't piss weak enough that they have to resort to this tired bollocks. There are ways to tell Becky's story without the last roadblock before Carmella being fucking Carmella.

    Context. People moaned because r0MAn SuCKz0rz!1, because he was coming off a high profile emphatic defeat to Lesnar, because the match was awful, because they they thought the plan was for him to still win the belt and they didn't like it, or any number of reasons why wankers moan because Roman. Also, good for People. My pining does not depend on People. People will watch an entire 3 hour broadcast every week even though they hate it. People like Coldplay and voting for the Nazis, you can't trust People, Jeremy.

    When did you last enjoy WWE?

    I last watched Raw every week during an extended period of unemployment during 2014. I was in a house with Sky and no reason to be up on Tuesday. There were moments, but I didn't really enjoy it. It was a colossal slog and I watched out of habit and fear of missing the week where it magically becomes good again. Last time I enjoyed it..... hmm. There was a lot I enjoyed in 2011 but towards the tail end of the year they'd moved the belt around so much since Money In The Bank and neglected to just make Punk the clear top guy, the Punk/Nash/HHH dynamic had confused me to fuck, especially not knowing if I was supposed to like Hunter or not, instead of putting the belts on Awesome Truth they fed them to Rock and Cena like they were the fucking Beverly Brothers.... just felt like they lost their way badly. Boy, did it get worse before it.... has yet to get better, actually.

    Honestly, all the contenders crap makes me pine for the days when they'd just tell you who was getting the title shot. Kurt should have decided who he was giving it to in advance like a proper boss. Anything but putting six lads in contention, especially with none of them being Braun. Of course, they could still have Braun call his shot after Reigns/Lashley has a winner and make it a triple threat. Anything to chickenshit out of Lesnar losing the belt properly.

    My preferred outcome would actually be Lesnar leaves without dropping the title, then we can forget it exists and remember that hey, that AJ guy is champion. Maybe he could go on last at the PPV? And be on Raw too. Because.

    The Official UKFF RAW Thread...

    Why even bother with such a pair of hideously predictable triple threat matches? Why waste six guys getting in the ring for two matches where if we the intelligent viewer already didn't know from the booking and status of the wrestlers who was going over, the opening segment made it nigh on explicit?? What's the point? Why not just have the match between the two then and there, have an extra week to build for winner vs Brock, and have a few more matches where there's actually some doubt as to who wins? It's depressing reading. Livid they didn't have Braun call his shot and surrender his briefcase. They're going to fuck him up just like they fucked Reigns up and if they move the belt onto him it will be in a weak manner that protects Lesnar even if they don't know if the latter will be coming back or not.

    I have Goto beating Omega or Ishii beating Naito as part of my grand plan for some rematches generated for the next few In Your Houses so really looking forward to that show!

    Seen the messages between Orleans' accuser and Elgin? Yeah... he's a cunt.

    Top two matches were belters. Feeling really stupid for predicting Naito over Kenny now, because of course New Japan 50/50 had Omega go over to avenge their last match in last year's final. Just as Tana avenged the Suzuki loss, just as Ibushi avenged losing to Zack in the Cup.

    ........ is it? Good start, even if it wasn't exactly bold.

    UKFF Questions Thread V2

    You're thinking of Mania VII where it was full nelson vs powerslam - WWF Magazine actually printed that a stip would be Smith would win the match if he just executed the powerslam, and Warload could only win by getting Bulldog to submit to the full nelson. Which would have been laying it on far too thick and obviously never actually happened for a stip on a card which by 91 standards had enough of them.

    Come again? Leon was renowned for his stuff looking like it hurt like fuck because it hurt like fuck. Ask Bret, Shawn, Sting. Ask anyone.

    Okada and Omega both lose their opener, I reckon.
