    Vince has BritWres in his pocket.

    I’ve seen Ligero wrestle at least 15 times and never once has being from Mexico played a part in any match. If he looks the same, wrestles the same, and can now do promos: where’s the harm?

    Official ROH Discussion Thread

    I was looking forward to signing up to Honorclub for the first time in order to watch tonight's show. Looking at their website now though it reads like their ppvs are not included in the monthly Honorclub subscription. Have I read that right? $9.99 is a bargain to watch that show and then spend the rest of the month looking through the back catalogue, but I don't fancy paying $35 just to watch tonight's ppv alone.

    Best things to watch on the network?

    Edge & Christian had said it themselves: the first few episodes they were trying to find their feet and establish what style they were going to go with and it wasn't until half-way through the first season when they felt like it was coming together. The first two episodes of Season 2 were excellent.
  4. Yep. Seeing half a dozen of his ROH matches this year I was already planning to nominate him for worst wrestler in the UKFF Awards before I heard the devastating news that NXT had signed him.

    Thanks, I'll have a look at those.

    The Official ICW Discussion Thread

    I subscribed to ICW on Demand this week in order to watch Fear & Loathing. I'm a complete newcomer to ICW so can anyone recommend some older shows worth a watch until my month runs-out?

    It’s becoming quite common. He’s 55 years old. In the last few months alone I’ve seen Al Snow & Kevin Nash post pictures showing they are also in the best physical shape of their lives in their late 50’s.

    Wrestling things that annoy

    I agree that doesn't make sense. But if you were being logical about it the first fall in any match of that type would not happen until 15/20 minutes in due to so many team-mates still being fresh and alert and in position to break up pin attempts.

    Deathmatch Intrest Thead No. 2 (NSFW)

    I attended a show last night in which Jimmy Havoc participated in a Ladder Match. He did a cool spot which I have never seen before but made total sense: Jimmy and his opponent were fighting at the top of a ladder when the opponent reached up to grab the title belt with his left hand. Jimmy got a staple-gun out of his pocket and stapled the lad in his bicep/armpit area. He immediately lowered his arm and winced as we in the crowd did too, twatted Jimmy again with his right hand and reached up before Jimmy stapled that bicep-armpit too. Bloody good match too. Havoc's opponent (Tyler Devlin, a local here in North Lincolnshire) took some gigantic bumps including the spot made famous by D-Von Dudley at SummerSlam 2000 where he was hanging from the wire which held the belt above the ring before dropping and landing flat on his back rather than the more sensible and less painful feet-first option. Then for the finish Havoc took a big bump from the top of a ladder on to another which was wrapped in barbed-wire and bridged between the first ladder and the bottom rope.

    Just seen this on Instagram. Maybe he’s Nicholas’ big brother?
  11. My main memory of watching that a couple of years ago was that it reminded me that Miley Cyrus has a really good voice. She's not been making headlines as much these last few years, but this was from that period where every week there was a new story along the lines of her being video'd taking drugs at parties or wearing stupid stuff on stage dancing with that bloke who sang blurred lines, etc. So I had completely forgotten she was actually quite talented. She sang a couple of songs here and sounded fantastic.

    Minor news items that don't deserve a thread

    There are some amazing prices on t-shirts right now in WWE Euroshop's Black Friday sale. There are practically none available in sizes Small, Medium, Large, or Extra Large. But besides that there are plenty!

    Yes it is. I love ECW reunion photos.

    Deathmatch Intrest Thead No. 2 (NSFW)

    I’ve read a lot of snippets this morning about a lot of controversy during and after the Gage vs Arquette match, but struggling to piece it all together. I won’t say too much about what I read for spoiler reasons, but can anyone link me to a full report anywhere of exactly what down?

    When it’s Good it’s Fucking Great.

    I would argue that your statement is not arguable. Cena looked cool as fuck doing that ring entrance, and I have never seen Cena look cool as fuck again before or since. A distant second place would be when Orton realised they were handcuffed together at Breaking Point 2009 and frantically tried to pull away while Cena flexed every muscle he had standing firm. But enough about him... @Accident Prone has already gone into detail about the match I was going to mention here: Sasha Banks vs Bayley at NXT Takeover Brooklyn. A lot people call it the best women's match in WWE history but I'd rate it pretty highly on my list of best matches between men or women. All I can add to what he already said is that it felt like a huge deal going in to the event, based on storylines that had been ongoing for TWO YEARS. Sasha & Bayley came in at the same time and struggled to work their way up the card. Sasha turned heel and became the Boss and she was able to get to the top. Meanwhile Bayley stayed babyface wanting to things the right way and that held her back. She formed an alliance with Charlotte until she turned on her in a tag match. She formed an alliance with Becky until she turned on her too. Eventually Bayley was able to find the killer instinct to finish off her opponents and slowly worked her way to being Number One contender. Meanwhile Sasha was having the match of the night at each Takeover. She won the Title in the excellent 4-way match at the February Takeover, she then retained it in an even better match with Becky at the May Takeover. Which all brought us to Brooklyn. It was the first Takeover outside of Full Sail University and the Barclays Center went crazy for everything. They even cheered for the babyfaces and booed the heels with only a few exceptions. Expectations were high about this match and they exceeded those expectations. It was a good, solid match for those first few minutes. Then from the minute Sasha did the somersault plancha it reached a whole new level. They built and built the drama and finished at that perfect moment when the crowd have reached fever pitch. I bloody loved it.
