  1. I'd say it was a great show for the 2nd week in a row, you are very different to watch what people are saying on social media who loved it, people tuned out because they went head to head with the NFL draft which pretty much killed everybody in ratings in the US as well as the NBA playoffs currently going on. Good debut for Sydal, him vs Eddie Edwards from what I've read is an absolute classic next week. Sad that the Everett vs Lee feud was undercut but it had no heat and was poorly booked under John Gaburick. Ever since Sonjay Dutt started booking the X Division again its been great. The Storm/EC3 promo segment was fine. EC3 establishing himself as a villain again and Storm not showing any fire yet calls him a bitch, blasts his family and ends up in a brawl with EC3? Okay. "I'm a Carter, and this company needs me" - that line in itself will get heat. To be honest, Veterans of War surprised me, I thought they would be shit but Jax Dane is impressive. Mayweather (aka Crimson which they don't acknowledge) was ok but nothing special but if you have them feud with LAX you'll have something there. Spud is being reintroduced as his heel Rockstar gimmick, its a continuation from Total Nonstop Deletion where Spud was bullying Swoggle. David Penzer of WCW fame takes his job next week. I would like to see him reunite with EC3 as his manager again. Heat magnets they are together. The main event was brilliant and deserves more than "okay", you had a fantastic send off for Crazzy Steve as he heads to WWE, Abyss took bumps he didn't need to take with his fucked up knees. And a tease for a potential Diamante vs Rosemary match. Santana and Ortiz are a great tag team and are doing wonders under the LAX banner. That Street Sweeper finisher is a sight to behold. The Grand Title match was good, Moose working with Davey Richards benefits him very well. One of the better Grand Title matches of the format. If there any changes that need to be made I'd go to longer rounds and get rid of the judges until the end of the bout. They are sticking with it so thats it. Ava Storie is an enhancement talent, she's being brought in as a favour to Jay Lethal from Jeff Jarrett as she is one of his students. She is super young (19/20) and getting experience under her belt and know how from Dutch Mantell on how to wrestle on TV. She was there to make Christina Von Eerie look good for her match with Sienna next week nothing more. So I'm not going to rate that, Von Eerie's finisher looks painful.
  2. PWInsider has confirmed with sources speaking under condition of anonymity that the World of Sport tapings have been delayed. As noted before, the tapings were originally set for May; the source in question said that it was not an issue of sales as they have sold well, but rather a logistical scheduling issue causing a delay. There are currently plans to make an official announcement next week regarding the delay and rescheduling.
  3. PWinsider... By Mike Johnson on 2017-04-27 14:40:00Over the last 24 hours, the talk in Great Britain has been that the planned May World of Sport TV tapings, which were to film a ten episode season for ITV, bringing the World of Sport brand back to weekly broadcast television in England, have been postponed. Tapings were slated for 5/25 and 5/26 at Preston Guild Hall following a popular WOS special that aired on New Year's Eve last December. Tickets for the tapings went on sale on 4/6 and have sold quite well.World of Sport was a sports anthology series that ran for 20 years on ITV and regularly featured pro wrestling personalities and matches from Europe. When the decision was made in 1985 to cancel the series, it crippled homegrown pro wrestling in that region for many years, setting the stage for the then-WWF's already growing popularity in the region to flourish just a few years later. The special on New Year's Eve in 2016 celebrated WOS' thirty year run, setting the stage for a new potential series.Talent that appeared on the initial pilot included Grado (who won the World of Sports Wrestling championship on the special and would be going into the new series as champion), Dave Mastiff, Danny Hope, Kenny Williams, Sam Bailey, CJ Banks, Mark and Joe Coffey, Rampage, Ashton Smith, Viper Kimberly Benson, Alexis Rose, El Ligero and Zack Gibson, among others. WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross appeared on the taping as the lead announcer and helped with the creative end, sparking WWE to sign Ross to a new deal to circumvent his involvement in the weekly series.Following the original taping, Impact Wrestling came on board to help produce with Jeff Jarrett announced as the Executive Producer. Impact has announced Bobby Lashley and Kongo Kong would be working the taping. One would assume other Impact talents could also be involved. Jarrett stated following a press conference announcing the series that the plan was for WOS to be a complete pro wrestling promotion, not just a TV series.The March press release announcing the tapings touted the ITV-Impact Wrestling collaboration as "part of a comprehensive co-production agreement" between the two entities designed to "relaunch the WOS Wrestling brand, bringing British stars to ITV while leveraging the roster and creative team of Impact Wrestling along with its expertise in live event production and international distribution."When the tapings were initially announced, Director of Entertainment, ITV Studios Manchester, Tom Mclennan stated in the press release, “Britain’s wrestling scene is thriving and there has never been a better time to bring it back to ITV after a gap of 30 years.”The original WOS plan was to tape in May and air the series over the course of the summer, starting in July, with a late Saturday afternoon timeslot. One source believed the WOS tapings could be pushed back to July with the idea that the episodes would air in the fall.ITV and Impact Wrestling officials did not respond to PWInsider requests for comment. Stay tuned.
  4. Spud's involved in this as he'll be at the tapings. ITV are not going to give a shit about the fan who watches Puro everyday or even the hardcore wrestling fan who expects high work rate. Its not aimed at you. Kongo Kong is a big man who can fly. In ITV's mind.... "Result".
  5. Why bother with them? Go make new ones. They'll shit on the company no matter what. Fuck'em and create some new ones. That is the entitled nature of fans today unfortunately. Not even Dixie can fuck it up from 5%. They didn't put the belt on Del Rio, it was a Dusty Finish.
  6. Turns out its nothing. Bob Ryder and Jeff Jarrett had a blow up that is now resolved.
  7. A lot of it very inaccurate. Like WWE buying TNA was a done deal or this situation whilst not Impact when he reported Mauro's contract was coming up in January. Also he reports on things which are hyped up big time, but then you get a fart.
  8. FUCK yes. NO SYMPY. Him and McKenzie Mitchell, Him and Eli Drake.
  9. Impact and Xplosion and other content will be on Channel 5's My5 app, all up now. Spud is on the booking team, I imagine they will be reintroducing him again at some point as Dutch told Rex the gimmick wasn't working. Desmond Xavier's a star in the making.
  10. Sutter's schtick is that he is the typical "TV wrestler" he was in a faction called "TV Ready" in CZW, he and Allie were heels and had the phrase "Sex, Weights and Protein Shakes". He's pretty much what you'd come across all the time but dude has personality and charisma. Desmond Xavier has a deal with Impact now, and I am very excited for him as he is a big get.
  11. Challenge was actually a pretty decent get, they are now under the Channel 5 umbrella with Spike UK and have catch up stuff on the My5 app. It was fucking awful in 2013, Sabin winning the title for god sake. Del Rio's win was overturned so Lashley is still champion. Yeah the Hardys winning the titles was in the works for months sure. Quite a few actually, they did good crowds at a number of arenas whilst on Challenge. I don't see ROH packing 9,000 at Wembley Arena any time soon.
  12. The first three episodes are fine but crowd tires. The taping schedule is April 20-23 with April 20th being live.
  13. I've no time for ROH these days. Its basically TNA circa 2013 only more shittier. Taeler Hendrix and Lio Rush are the latest to go, Rush to Evolve, Taeler because she probably got tired of losing to Delirious' girlfriend. Plus they're losing talent more so than Impact as Adam Cole is off to NXT. Impact is far more watchable and much better presented. They have the India tapings in May which should be a breath of fresh air. Only thing is they need a hot crowd and they're away again but I understand if the IZ is a crutch and they've got it good there because the last time they left was the beginning of the mess to come.
  14. Naw. Plenty of this..
  15. Eddie vs Davey - Last Man Standing is absolutely must see.
