  1. So in the end, after adding the pre show, the 24/7 ‘matches’ and the post show nonsense, they taped 21 matches (even without the 24/7 it’s still 19) for the entire Mania weekend making it the longest match card in WrestleMania history, beating last year, WM 4 and 18 which all had 16 (18 is padded out by 4 additional Hardcore title mini matches to the advertised one)
  2. Just finished Night 2, it was good just not as good as Saturday, overall I’d give it a 7 or 8/10 The Good Boneyard Match Firefly Funhouse ‘match’ SD Ladder match Rhea v Charlotte Rollins v Owens Lynch v Baszler Otis getting the girl Drew winning the big one The OK Street Profits v Garza/Theory Black v Lashley Zayn v Bryan Women’s Tag Title match Gulak v Cesaro (Day 1 Preshow) The Bad Both world title matches being finisher fests and 5 mins or less SD Women’s Title match Edge v Orton (should never have gone 36 mins) Liv v Natalya (Day 2 Preshow) Elias v Corbin The 24/7 title bollocks with Mojo, Truth and Gronk Otis v Ziggler (before the moment with Mandy)
  3. Purely cos they are both based in Florida so could get to the PC, Ruby and Sarah both live further out
  4. It’s 16 for the main card, 8 for each night, plus a pre show match each night which have been announced as Natalya vs Liv Morgan and Drew Gulak vs Cesaro. The Wiki page doesn’t indicate, nor have WWE themselves announced, which block of 9 air tonight and which air tomorrow
  5. Was going to do this as a separate thread but, having rewatched 26 last week I thought it’d be interesting looking back at what the line up for this year’s event were doing at (if there were in the company) or around that event 10 years ago WWE Title Brock Lesnar was still 2 years away from returning to the company and was reigning UFC Heavyweight Champion but sitting on the sidelines through illness, Drew McIntyre was reigning Intercontinental Champion and was part of the Money in the Bank ladder match at Mania Universal Title (won’t refer to Goldberg’s opponent by name incase no one has seen SD) Goldberg was out the business and had been for 7 years but the month of Mania 26 he appeared as a contestant on a celebrity version of the US Apprentice, his opponent had not begun his wrestling career Boneyard Match AJ Styles was in the midst of a 200+ day run as TNA World Champion mentored by Ric Flair before losing it to RVD, Undertaker was in the main event of Mania, ending Shawn Michaels career to extend the streak to 18-0 FireFly FunHouse Match Bray Wyatt was working in FCW as Duke Rotundo and was a couple of months away from being part of the second ‘series’ of NXT where he would be renamed Husky Harris, John Cena beat Batista at Mania to become WWE Champion for a 7th time Last Man Standing Match Edge faced Chris Jericho in a losing effort for the World Heavyweight Title while Orton beat Cody and Ted DiBiase Jr in a triple threat/handicap match Raw Women’s Title Becky Lynch was on her hiatus from the business due to an injury suffered in 2006, she made an official return in a managerial role for Shimmer the following year, Shayna Baszler was competing in MMA for Freestyle Cage Fighting winning a second round match in a tournament she would later win Smackdown Women’s Title Fatal Five Way Defending champion Bayley was working for Big Time Wrestling as Davina Rose, Sasha Banks was undergoing wrestling training and wouldn’t debut until August that year for NECW under the name Mercedes KV, Lacey Evans was a year into her role with the Marines as a police officer, Tamina made her WWE debut 2 months after Mania along with the Uso’s beating down the Hart Dynasty while Naomi was working in FCW NXT Women’s Title Rhea Ripley was only 13 at the time of Mania and wouldn’t begin her career for another 3 years, Charlotte (under her birth name Ashley) had appeared on WCW broadcasts as a teenager during Ric’s feud with Vince Russo and was present for her dad’s Hall of Fame induction and final WWE match at Mania 24, she signed a developmental deal 2 years later Women’s Tag Team Titles Asuka was working under the name Kana for Neo Japan Ladies Pro Wrestling, Kairi Sane was a theatre actor and didn’t begin training until 2011, Alexa Bliss was 18 and at University while Nikki Cross was on the BritWres scene as Nikki Storm Intercontinental Title Sami Zayn was working the Indies under the masked gimmick El Generico, mainly for ROH, Daniel Bryan was a part of the first series of NXT being coached by The Miz Raw Tag Team Titles Dawkins and Ford weren’t in the business at the time of 26, Ford was in the US Marines, Angel Garza was working in Mexico as masked wrestler El Hijo del Ninja while Austin Theory was only 13 Smackdown Tag Team Titles Ladder Match (Based on the original announcement which was still valid as of SD) Miz and Morrison were on opposite sides of the ring in the 26 opener as Miz teamed with Big Show to successfully defend their Unified Tag Titles against Morrison and R Truth, Miz was also US champion.

  6. We got told we were going on furlough on Thursday night, effective from tomorrow as that’s the start of our next pay period. Happy enough with that while I’m not able to work atm.
  7. They’ve done a last appearance Eddie as well with the blonde tips from the SD before he passed
  8. All the Dark matches are squashes, to try out potential signees, Mox is the biggest name on this week’s episode
  9. Watched a couple of films earlier, Brother Bear, which I only watched because my mate's girlfriend has been bugging me for weeks to see it as it's her favorite film, I can see why some would like it but personally I thought it was a bit meh. After that I watched The Black Cauldron, I genuinely don't remember ever seeing this as a kid but its a really fun and slightly dark film which also has historical significance as it was the first film to use the classic blue and white castle signature with the reworked version of When You Wish Upon A Star from Pinocchio
  10. You’re gonna be so disappointed then
  11. The Feeny Call was, is and forever will be the most annoyingly brilliant character signature move in tv history, so much so that they recreated one of Eric's funniest ones for George's cameo in Girl Meets World
  12. Been doing the same but watching one Mania a day from 24 on, watched 26 today in full bar the Bret/Vince match, skipping over 27 as I watched the Wrestling With Wregret review of it just a couple of weeks ago so moving straight on to 28 tomorrow and 29 Sunday. Should be caught up to last year's show by the time Coronamania Day 1 happens next weekend if it still goes ahead given the newz bits coming out today
  13. I’m in the same boat with the asthma Branquey, got my inhaler gun on stand by just incase though atm I’m feeling good after locking myself in for the most part since work got closed last weekend, although that said I could have punched the dickhead on the bus yesterday (had to use it to go to M&S for food with my mum) who was openly coughing without cover on the seat opposite to me
  14. First episode was fun, Magica plotted to steal Scrooge’s rare dime by breaking out the Beagle Boys and turning them into Huey, Louie and Dewey (who had gone to watch a film)
  15. Started my Disney Afternoon block today and decided to throw Gargoyles in as an add on, wow had I forgot what an incredible show this was (and that's after only one episode), the next couple of days are going to be a bit short as I've come across a curious omission, episodes 2&3 of Ducktales are missing as the list order jumps straight to episode 4
  16. Set my subscription up this afternoon on my phone, super quick to do (email, password, Paypal, boom), downloaded the app in the evening to my Fire Stick and then had a scan through what was there, overwhelming choice of things to watch (in a good way). Decided on watching Endgame for the first time since going to see it in cinemas nearly a year ago, picture quality was fantastic, really crisp and sharp and I like that it has some special features attached to it Gonna have a proper watch through tomorrow, still favoring doing a Disney Afternoon block to kill a couple hours a day
  17. Thoughts and prayers with you and you girlfriend @neil I had to pop out this morning as I needed to post an item I'd sold on Ebay at the weekend (pulled the rest of my listings until it's deemed safe again), nipped the shop next door and picked up some energy drinks and a 4 pack of Mars bars and was back in 10 minutes. Don't have any plans to leave the house rest of the week apart from going to M&S on Thursday to help my mum get a few bits of food as some items that she needs are out of stock for our weekly delivery from Tesco
  18. Lucky the Network is free to view atm to watch old Manias or any PPV and/or documentaries
  19. They can get away with it this year because of no Hall of Fame or Takeover, they would either either have to move both back a day or move the former to Summerslam weekend
  20. I’m going to recreate my own Disney afternoon block and watch an episode a day each of Rescue Rangers, Ducktales, Gummi Bears and Darkwing Duck Also going to rewatch Endgame as I’ve held off buying it on Blu-ray
  21. So I’m officially off work for the next few weeks, Primark sent a company wide text and email out around 12 confirming we’d be closing after tonight. One of my floor managers has set up a WhatsApp group to keep us informed of what happens going forth and then it got took over by weekend staff posting TikTok videos of them dancing in various parts of the store as it was so quiet
  22. In difficult times like this, it makes me damn proud when I see good deeds done by people, even moreso when it's my family. My cousin Daniel, who is a Fresh Produce Manager at the Birkenhead branch of Asda made a post on Facebook this morning offering himself as a referal to get people who have been laid off or struggling for work some paid shifts at their local stores for at least 4 weeks if not more
  23. Ah Branchy, one of the many ‘next big things’ that bombed horribly when given a first team opportunity for us
  24. You can get better ones in Home Bargains for 80p for a pack of 5
