    I'd happily watch Bryan wrestle random people from the roster every week.

    You knew things were going to be questionable as soon as it started with a promo referencing the downturn in quality and bad ratings. That's always a sign of panic.

    Watching wrestling for the first time

    I'm not sure of the first exact show I ever saw. Fairly certain a family friend had given us a tape and said it was good and it went from there. My parents owned a shop on the same high street as a Woolworths and a toy shop so my time was spent between them looking at the VHS and the WWF figures. I have fond memories of the Wrestlemania 4 release being two tapes, the vivid yellow Survivor Series ones with the teams on and just loving the video catalogues in general. They were always fun to look at. Same with picking up the old WWF magazines. I even remember my dad printing out an extra set of Summerslam 92 photos (from a customer) to give to me. And some where someone had met a lot of the roster at the airport. And how id written a lot about wrestling and my collection for a project at school. It's weird how these things stick with you. Like many it's almost as if wrestling has been around my entire life. I'll never have such a lengthy connection with anything else. It's probably why I put up with so much shit output from Vince over the years. If I was pushed to choose one then wrestling would probably be my favourite thing even after all these years. It changes and adapts but it has never left me. And I've never given up on it.

    I don't see too much in him but he has a decent enough look and if he can learn more from the PC and working with the talent they have then he could end up being alright. Not everyone needs to be a top talent straight away.

    Minor news items that don't deserve a thread

    Such a random addition but looking forward to watching it. Thanks for posting that.

    Agreed that it wouldn't have the depth of something like that BUT it's better to have something than nothing I believe. Whether it's a character vignette or interview or highlights from NXT or something like that. At least it gives the audience some reason to care.

    Vince has BritWres in his pocket.

    I always find it a bit weird that people seem to use "they want to make money" as an insult or a slight on WWE somehow. It's a really strange criticism about a business.

    Agreed. They have the power to make anyone look like an absolute superstar with video packages. It's absolutely crazy they don't do more of them, especially with debuting stars. It's such an easy and quick win for them.

    That's what I don't really understand. What exactly are they planning on offering that other companies haven't? It's all too easy to watch something else these days if you want to. I highly doubt they'll take a Lucha Underground approach to the show.

    Problem is there's only a finite amount of talent in the industry. Especially ones that fans would follow to another company. Gone are the days of blind loyalty to one promotion over another. It's so easy to pick and choose what you watch now and so much crossover in talent outside of WWE. What can a new company really offer that others don't right now? I'm not sure. Personally the most I've enjoyed anything outside of WWE in years was Lucha Underground because they did really try to be different.

    ALL his own fault? It's not like every single person in that company is in a position to push through their own ideas. Becky is a very rare case and really how much do we ACTUALLY know about who's doing what etc in any company? You make it sound like we all go to work and raise hell and do what we want to do. Hardly.

    NXT - Post NXT Takeover discussion in progress

    It's great to see guys like Ricochet come in with no ego and a willingness to learn and grow despite the success they've had already. And he has grown in the short time he's been around in NXT. Same with the UE guys for example. They do get some great opportunities for training and learning from some of the best. Sure a lot of them would be solid additions straight on TV but they're all looking to better themselves.

    I've always enjoyed heels in NXT more than the main roster and Shayna is great. Nothing likeable about her whatsoever. We're so used to having tweeners in this day and age that it's refreshing to have people you can actually hate. Sure the crowds can be shits occasionally when it comes to changing but Shayna seems to get the right reactions. A good mix of her character work, in ring style and the booking.

    Gargano/Black was MOTN for me with Ciampa/Dream a very close second. War Games was decent but the format makes it a strange one to book and keep hot compared to normal matches. Was most impressed with War Raiders as I had a fairly low opinion of them before. The Women's match was fine. I wondered when Kairi would finally have friends that cared enough to come out for her.
