    She's one to look out for in the future. Clearly has the right in the US rattled as well as a lot of Democrats. Think there was actually mumblings from some Democrats about trying to primary her. Yeah good luck with that. Love him or hate him, Sanders running in 2016 helped open the door for the likes of AOC imo and brought a lot of current political talking points (Medicare for all, living wage,etc.) to the forefront.

    Labour Split / Independence Group

    Fucking hell Soubry didn't hold anything back. She's done with the Tory Party good and proper and is almost certainly positioning herself as the leader figure. Don't see what all the fuss about Allen is about. She was cringy as fuck in her statement imo.

    Funded by this company apparently. https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/11770529/officers Founded by Gavin Shuka (one of the seven) and apparently founded in January from what little I can make out.

    The (mostly bad) films of Kevin Smith

    I had the "honour" of sitting through that stinker in the cinema as well.

    Labour Split / Independence Group

    Much like 2016's failed coup I have a feeling that this stunt may end badly for them. Could very well be the end of their political careers. Outside of social media bubbles I've seen no talk of "centrism" and the like. Most people upset with either party just drifted to UKIP. Have this lot announced anything of substance so far?

    Was Will Smith ever any good?

    This. It's a shit War of The Worlds.

    I liked Mallrats when I was younger but I've always had a soft spot for dumb movies like that. Watched it when I got older and realised how fucking bad a lot of the acting was. SHE'S FUCKING DEAD. Clerks 2 is fucking toss.

    If it turns out that only seven break away and no or around the same amount of Tories. Then the lot of them are going to look very stupid. Anyone who believes that this is a good move is being naive.

    Much like with Republicans in the US, it won't work like that imo. They'd take Brexit (even no deal) if it meant staying in government because that's all they really give a shit about. Be interesting to see how that cunt Farage's new Brexit Party effects things. Last time there was a Labour split it only helped one party and it wasn't a "centrist" party. This split is nothing but another attempt to get rid of Corbyn.

    Elimination Chamber is tomorrow

    Suspended Becky slowly wanders in on crutches. No one stops her. Suspended Becky batters Charlotte. No one stops her. Suspended Becky batters Ronda. Oh better get out there guys. I admit that I'm a miserable old prick though. And no longer the kind of fan WWE gives a shit about, nor should they really.

    Looked like Ronda suffered a cut to the head as well, pretty sure Becky hit her on the head at least two times. Hated the whole angle.

    Yeah he's a bad example now you mention it. Brock would definitely use AEW to clean out Vince, and Vince would get a chubby in the process.

    I bet the Batista's of the world would only talk to AEW to shake Vince down for a better deal. I have no horse in the race so if AEW does well then fair play, if not them I'm not going to lose any sleep. End of the day though they need to create a buzz with casual fans to even stand a chance imo.

    If you don't want to be called out for posting daft shite, then don't post daft shite in the first place.

    Make the most uninspiring WrestleMania possible

    Main Event. John Cena Vs. Randy Orton. Just typing that has made me lose interest in thinking of more matches.

    Which was better - WWECW or ECW

    The match at Hardcore Heaven 1997 felt like it lasted a week.

    WHAT PLAY YOU!? Version 2.0

    Anyone else not buying into the Apex Legends hype? Been playing it in short bursts since launch and I'm finding it average at best. Unless the future support is top notch, I can't see me sticking around. Doesn't help that it's launched with no solo mode.

    PS4 browser is garbage for seemingly everything other than one promotion which I'll get to. Some more Japanese stuff if you are interested. ddtuniverse has a load of content including Tokyo Joshi Pro Wrestling, problem is though the website is shite if you stream through the Xbox browser. Weirdly runs pretty well on PS4 since changes made to the site, and I think is the only Japanese service that works on the system at all. Shows from DDT and it's various other promotions (expect lots of crossovers) are uploaded regularly. Though they recently changed to a "tier" subscription model that can cause confusion. Keeping things simple "gold" is the back catalogue and live streams. And platinum can be safely ignored (exclusive videos don't seem to be anything worth paying extra for) since it's aimed at Japanese fans that are likely to attend shows. Also not the most English friendly site but can easily be worked around. Expect plenty of unintentional hilarity from Google translate. https://www.ddtpro.com/universe (also runs like garbage on my tablet it seems) Stardomworld is also pretty good and one of the only Japanese promotions that bothers subtitling anything which puts them ahead of most other Japanese promotions. However I think they are due to change service providers soon and the resulting switch will result in most of the back catalogue being lost for an unknown amount of time. They upload shows regularly though over time/match by match, sometimes they might rush a major match up earlier than anything else but that's pretty rare. Think they edit everything in-house with a small team. Very English friendly. With a simple site layout and almost everything worth translating being subtitled. Not PS4 browser compatible. http://www.stardom-world.com Other than njpwworld the above are the only other Japanese services that I've stuck with. And DDT have made that difficult to be honest.

    Yuka Sakazaki is definitely a name that was low on my list of wrestlers that AEW would be looking at. Actually if I'm being honest, no one in TJW was even on my mind. For anyone wondering, Tokyo Joshi Pro Wrestling is DDT's Joshi promotion (it's not quite as mental as DDT these days) that has gained quite a lot of momentum over the last year or so. Surprised to see that they have seemingly made an agreement with another promotion. I don't think she (along with most of the TJW roster) has much if any experience outside of DDT. So it'll be interesting to see how she goes over in a new environment. I'm guessing that if she (and well, AEW itself) does well it means more TJW wrestlers eventually making the trip.
