  1. Finished watching this last night, and I think pacing the show out over a few nights really helped. There's definitely a LOT in them. Generally, I thought it was pretty solid. Better than Fyterfest, for sure. Particularly enjoyed the triple-threat tag and the Lucha Bros/SCU matches. Brandi may not be a wrestler, but the stuff with the Kongs was great. Totally agree with others in reducing repetition and shortening some of the matches. And Alex Marvez really is a bit crap. Particularly liked when the Lucha Bros did the ladder promo (which was bad-ass), and they came back to commentary, and he immediately makes a nerdy point about the ladder being white and gold, so JR just goes 'Yeah, great, so anyway' and turns his back on him to talk to the other commentator. It just summed him up - ignoring the important thing that just happened to make a smug, annoying point. When they shook hands at the end, it made me think that I really want to see Kenny Omega vs Dustin Rhodes.
  2. That isn't what the current football thread is?

    Ew. A cream should sort that right out.
  4. The old abdominal stretch while reaching out to the ropes routine, with the ref kicking their hand off the rope the third time.
  5. For anyone that didn't see BTE, they addressed the Librarian stuff going down badly - but in the usual BTE way, by having BluePants saying it was the greatest moment of her life, and Matt/Nick deciding that the passion of her speech convinced them that the Librarian gimmick was a winner, and it should be all Librarians all the time. So they're aware (as with the 'More comedy' bit in the same skit). Be interesting to see if they can make it work at all, but agreed with everyone else that their approach to pre-shows is lacking.
  6. It's been too long since there was a Mafia game in here.

    If he was really savvy, he'd have been born rich with good contacts.
  8. Really liked Barry. It's a black comedy drama - a PTSD-suffering assassin falls in with a drama school. Very funny in places, but genuinely dark in others.
  9. @tiger_rick already posted a youtube link which has it clearly said while Christopher Daniels enters.
  10. As long as there are some definite heels and some definite faces, I'm okay with it. I care far more about clearly defined characters for the rest. Jon Moxley can feud easily with both Kenny Omega and Chris Jericho as a tweener.
  11. Yeah, as @BomberPat said, Havoc's been booked as a face (although I can't stand him). Janela - I'm not sure. He's been booked as a heel against faces/bigger names, but he can be booked effectively against heels too, I reckon. It's why I'd think of him as a tweener. This three-person team is the most interested I've been in either of them. Spears is pretty clearly a heel right now, as is MJF. The third lad, whose name I can't be bothered to check, has been portrayed as a smug, arrogant little tosser (as a gimmick, not unintentionally) on BTE and so on.
  12. I don't know that Darby Allin comes off as a heel - provocative, sure, but not necessarily heelish. He was definitely the underdog against Cody. Janela (although I don't like him) is probably a tweener too. The team of the three of them as the hardcore risk-takers is pretty cool, I thought. MJF/Spears... it may not be much of a thing for this match, but likely to tie in overall to the whole 'Cody is MJF's meal-ticket' thing that's going on longer-term.
  13. "She's a crackwhore" hasn't been for about 15 years, I think. It was very much an ECW thing (usually aimed at Francine) and died out after a few years. It did turn up with British fans, as I remember Jane Childs getting it in the FWA at one point.
