  1. The men’s Rumble was brilliant, and I enjoyed the women’s Rumble quite a bit too until the ending. I suspect we’ll somehow end up with Charlotte/Ronda/Becky for the second year in a row. Given how heelish Charlotte was in her post-match promo, I just can’t see her going after Bayley. And Charlotte/Becky would be a bizarre choice for Wrestlemania, when Shayna is out there (that’s not to say it won’t happen) Edge’s return have me goosebumps, I know a lot of people on here aren’t particularly bothered about him but he’s one of my all-time favourites, and I would have been completely fine with him winning this match. As it stands, I suspect we’ll get either Styles/Edge at ‘Mania, or Rollins and his crew vs Rated RKO, Joe and Owens. Whatever happens, I hope Edge gets to win another world title in the coming year, and he’s not treated in the same way that some other returning legends have been in recent years (The Hardys, RVD and even Cena come to mind here)
  2. I’m definitely in the minority but I don’t see the upside in Jungle Boy, certainly not from a main event perspective. His mic skills need to improve pretty dramatically. His look is also very unspectacular. Don’t get me wrong, I love Jurassic Express, and Luchasaurus has tremendous potential...but at this stage I just don’t see ‘it’ in Jungle Boy. Am I the only person who feels this way?
  3. There have been more posts for Friday’s Smackdown, amazingly. Get your priorities in order, guys!
  4. I love a winning streak, although I’m struggling to think of one outside of The Undertaker’s that has had a strong pay-off. I enjoy the ride while it lasts, though.
  5. At the very start, when Dev Patel appeared on screen, he said ‘this is going to be stupid’ to the lady he was with, and the next time he did it was when Benedict Wong and Rosalind Eleazar showed up. He laughed, said ‘for fuck’s sake’ someone shushed him and he didn’t do it again. He only did it for the people I mentioned. There were one or two other non-white characters he didn’t react to before Benedict Wong/Rosalind Eleazar showed up, so it wasn’t every time. Was still obnoxious though.
  6. I went to see The Personal History of David Copperfield today and thought it was excellent, a really brilliant, funny adaptation. It was spoiled a bit by the guy sitting in front of me who complained loudly the first few times a non-white character showed up. Utterly pathetic.
  7. A good read, that. I mean, I wish there was no need for it to exist but if nothing else, Brexit (or the threat of it) has given us interesting analysis and articles.
  8. Are NWA PPV spoilers OK in here? I’ll play it safe and not give anything away other than the fact that was one hell of a show. I had so much fun watching that, and the women’s match ended up being a bit of a surprise show-stealer for me. If you were on the fence about this I’d highly encourage you to give it a go. Tremendous fun.
  9. I also saw this tonight. Definitely better to watch this one without knowing much about it, but as @Hannibal Scorch says, it’s so difficult to explain succinctly that you’d have to be very unlucky to have it spoiled.
  10. Totally agree. I really enjoyed the show, it’s amazing how much the quality soars when Dark Order and Nightmare Collective are left off the card. I had no idea that Tony Schiavone worked at Starbucks, I thought, until I googled it, that it was a really rubbish attempt at an insult from Britt. It’s a shame because had Tony interjected to say he was proud of having worked there or something then I’d have had the confirmation I needed to pay full attention to how terrible a promo she is.
  11. It’s not being snarky to effectively wonder why that would bother you. Language and the terms we use evolve. It’s not about being ‘PC’, it’s about being respectful to others and using the terms they prefer. Speaking of which, I think the anti-PC brigade prefer to be called the ‘anti-woke brigade’ these days so please, be considerate.
  12. The Aron Stevens/Question Mark karate demo was an absolute blast. Stevens is one of the best things in wrestling at the moment, he’s so much fun. I can’t wait for Hard Times. It’s a strange one with this show. Hand on heart, I’m not particularly bothered about any individual match. However, a second dose of NWA this week is very welcome and the last PPV over-delivered. And heck, so does Powerrr each week. I have faith that they’ll deliver something fun.
  13. I’d genuinely worry that AEW would either have him start a new dark faction or join the Dark Order or Nightmare Collective. Arguably his best solo work came while working with/for Billy Corgan and Dave Lagana so I’d love to see him join the Powerrr roster. True, the Hardy compound craziness doesn’t fit well with what they’re doing there, but Matt has proven himself to be adaptable in the past and I feel fairly sure that they’d be able to come up with either a new version of that character or a completely new character that would work in the NWA setting. I definitely think Hardy is the kind of person who would perform brilliantly in front of that audience with that style of promo and close-quarter audience interaction.
  14. I’ve been playing Pokemon Sword and...it’s perfectly fine. But is there an NPC anywhere in the Pokemon world who doesn’t talk about Pokemon or something Pokemon related? I’m not trying to be snarky or something, that’s nothing more than a random wondering I had while playing this game. Outside of that, I’ve just completed Axiom Verge on Switch. Again. It’s exactly what I’d always wanted from recent 2D Metroid games but haven’t got and I can’t bloody wait for the sequel.
  15. It’s a bit sudden for sure, but the last NWA PPV was so fun that I don’t feel remotely hesitant to lay down my cash for this. Whatever the case, the NWA have already got me to the point with Tim Storm that I assume AEW want us to eventually get to with Cody. I’m desperate for them to break his no-NWA title match stip to go after Aldis one more time. Until that happens, if that happens, most Aldis matches, regardless of who is in them, will feel time space-fillers for me ahead of them getting to the good stuff.
