    UKFF UK Top 50 2009: Where Are They Now?

    He left at the end of last year, describing it himself as having 'burned bridges'. Think there's certainly been some issue between him and Mark Dallas/ICW.

    I guarantee it'll end up being fucking Naomi or somebody.
  5. Minor point I know but oddly, they're calling this one Takeover New York instead of Brooklyn V... despite it being in the same building as the previous four Takeover Brooklyns...

    Which was better - WWECW or ECW

    They did Scratch, including one at the old ECW Arena. Honestly, these shows fascinate me. Look at the line up for that event: There was also a segment where Heyman came out to chants of “This show sucks”. He did a promo, then Dreamer did one too, and then Big Show came out and choke slammed him. Clearly at some point, however brief, there WAS an intent to be close to the “old” ECW. Shockingly, the ECW fans couldn’t accept even minimal sacrifices.

    Maybe in retrospect. But at the time? This was clearly Triple H politicking to get his mate in the main event again, after we’d already seen him do similar things in the previous year. For all intents and purposes, Shawn Michaels didn’t belong in the match. He was surely there to take a pin so Triple H wouldn’t have to, or to win so the fans wouldn’t be upset about Benoit losing. Either way, the focus was definitely going to be pulled from the Rumble winner on to HBK vs. HHH. Of course, they pulled a massive swerve on that and the match was improved for it, but actually I recall reactions in the lead up being not dissimilar to current feelings about Charlotte/Becky/Ronda.

    Yeah, this is what I was referencing, however obliquely. I remember people were pissed off when HBK was shoehorned in, but actually it ended up adding to the match rather than detracting as was expected.

    I’ve only seen SmackDown from the YouTube clips, but it felt to me like rather than actually pushing Charlotte into the match, they’re threatening it because they know it’s not what people want. They’re playing on it to elicit a reaction. That being said, I do remember a third party being entered into a title match around WrestleMania XX time when people didn’t really want it, and that triple threat may have ultimately actually benefitted from it. Of course, the less said about the long term the better, but if Charlotte’s participation is inevitable, it doesn’t have to be for the worse. (Naturally though I’d prefer Charlotte/Asuka II. The fact that Asuka is the champion without having beaten Charlotte one on one means the build up practically writes itself)

    Classical music is the best entrance music

    Daniel Bryan’s WWE career only really turned around once he nicked this from Sara Del Ray: If anything it’s a shame they switched to the slightly crummy electric guitar version.
