    This is what I don’t get. Are there no social distancing measures or stay at home orders in certain states in USA? Donald letting Vince off with one?

    There is but wrestling companies have found a loophole in that they can film on closed sets and bring in and out any talent they need so it doesn’t breach any rules

    Has anything been mentioned about the HoF? It would have been nice to see him and Davey Boy have their moments.

    They are still doing it according to Davey's daughter but at a later date, most likely Summerslam

  3. 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) 

  4. Just finished Night 2, it was good just not as good as Saturday, overall I’d give it a 7 or 8/10

    Why is Natalya vs Liv Morgan happening? Not just on the pre show, but in general. Have they been feuding? I haven’t watched Raw or Smackdown for a while and last I saw Liv was feuding with Logan and Riott. And Lana at one point. 

    Purely cos they are both based in Florida so could get to the PC, Ruby and Sarah both live further out

    17 matches?! Blimey. That Raw tag team title match looks unappealing.

    I remember the initial buzz about Becky Lynch / Rebecca Knox but I’d forgotten about that hiatus she took.

    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 

  7. 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. Kofi was in the MITB match, Big E was in FCW while Jimmy and Jay as mentioned debuted with Tamina a couple of months after the show

    Kevin Owens vs Seth Rollins

    Owens was working for ROH as Kevin Steen while Rollins was ROH champion under the name Tyler Black

    Aleister Black vs Bobby Lashley

    Black was working the BritWrest and European scene under the name Tommy End while Lashley was a free agent having left TNA in the January 

    Otis vs Dolph Ziggler

    Otis was in collegiate wrestling and would win a national title at the Junior Pan-Am games the following year while Ziggler was another competitor in that year’s MITB match

    Elias vs King Corbin

    Elias was working for minor indies in the Northeastern area of the US while Corbin was on a futures contract with NFL side the Arizona Cardinals

    Fiend and Vis are outstanding. Presume that's supposed to by Miss Elizabeth?

    Close to death Warrior figure is a bit tasteless? Not as tasteless as naming a humanitarian award after him, like.

    They’ve done a last appearance Eddie as well with the blonde tips from the SD before he passed

  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. 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

  11. 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

  12. 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

    Lads, take this to the Star Wars thread and tell me about old episodes of Duck Tales.

    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)

  14. 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 

  15. 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

  16. 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

    I think next year will end up being a 2 day event now.  By doing it 2 days this year it's an easier transition to do it next year aswell.

    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

  18. 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

  19. 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 

  20. 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
