@Accident Prone That's one of the funniest prefaces I've read in a while in the hidden contents.

Hastily edited. Fucking hell. It's only 205 Live, but still.

The "AH! AH!" thing he did meant that even with the deadest of dead 205 crowds, you could normally rely on Tozawa to get them making a bit of noise. Fair enough if he wants out, he's been there three years, got his obligatory title win, but there's nowhere for him to go now. Leaves a space for Kushida on 205 as well.

I'd almost forgotten he existed already. How's he doing in NXT so far? (I'm a little behind)

He’s just been put in random matches so far against the likes of Drew Gulak, Kassius Ohno and Kona Reeves

He's doing well enough that you'd be entirely forgiven for forgetting he existed. He's done nothing of note, I can't recall anything he did in any of his matches, and he's been given absolutely no character or personality other than 'he likes to dress like Back To The Future in his entrance for no reason'. I can't see what the fuss is about so far.

This is exactly what I thought of him during his New Japan tenure. Solid in-ring, nothing spectacular, weird obsession with Back To The Future that was a shoot-off from his Time Splitters tag team with Alex Shelly.

He does have tremendous chemistry with Kyle O'Rielly though, including an absolute banger of a BOSJ final a few years back.

No no, I mean the "according to those that watched" part. Tickled me.

Ah! One of the few times that I'm genuinely funny on here and the praise goes over my own head. Fucking hell.

Although I do stand by the edit; having "Also" followed by a spoiler box was bad form on my part.

CM Punk's is currently in the process of suing his former best pal Colt Cabana. News to follow, according to Mike Johnson. That two bedroom apartment Colt lives in might have to be downsized.

He’s a prick isn’t he? I mean, I’m no Colt fan but he had proof CM Punk would help him if anything happened and then he lost he said How Much? Fuck That!

See I think they're largely as bad as each other. Punk could have went and done that interview or podcast anywhere he wanted and probably would have had several places offering him money to go and do it whether via a shoot interview or whatever. More professional outlets would I imagine have legal measures in place protecting them from law suits by  big companies suing them for defamation or libel or whatever. I can imagine Colt didnt far off beg Punk to tell the story on his pod. He has made a career largely off of being Punk's mate and using his connections to ride his coat tails. He's a cautious guy by nature and openly admits that regularly but on this occasion I feel he was blinded by the publicity and attention having Punk talk shit about WWE on his podcast was going to bring to his product so took the risk on the loose verbal promise that I believe was Punk saying "I'll take care of it".

To me it's important to remember that it's Cabana's podcast, guests are his guests, he had sole control over where, when and for how long it was distributed. He was happy to leave it up when the legal threats to take it down came and wasn't concerned how much it may cost Punk because as he see's it Punk is rich so could afford it. 

Cabana in my opinion needs to accept responsibility for his own actions and not just do something he knew was highly risky then hide behind his friends money when it all started to go wrong.

That is such utter, utter dross. You come off sounding like Alan Partridge, and not in a good way. Blaming Colt for any of this is proper shit, and I'm not even a big Colt fan. Punk used Colt's very big platform because he was a trusted mate and, at the time, it was arguably the world's most popular wrestling podcast. Colt had a guest, the guest spouted off, the guest should shoulder all the heat. The host of the show shouldn't even come into this mess.

I can absolutely see why Colt would be pissed, especially if Punk said that he'd cover all the costs only to bill the poor fucker at the end of a lawsuit that he should've had no business being involved with anyway. Get to fuck.

I don't think you're even the real Johnny Vegas either.
