Best things to watch on the network?

The clip of Undertaker chucking the chair is from when Flair drafted him to Raw.

I had a feeling it wasn't actual footage but damn.

The new episodes coming in Autumn look interesting, though.

Is the FCW show worth a gander?

I just watched & enjoyed it. Nice little chunk of footage of one time UKFF favourite Nick Rogers.

It made me a bit sad about Leo Kruger though. Such a great gimmick - although I enjoyed Adam Rose, for a bit.

 Likewise, made me sad about non-spooky powers, just a creepy cult leader Bray Wyatt.

I enjoyed the FCW documentary but it was weird the way it all was so recent but it was presented with exactly the same level of nostalgia as when they do a documentary on wrestling from the 70s or 80s.

Uplifting music playing while Charlotte and Big E talk with a tear in their eyes about how it was such a different time back then.... in 2011.

Just watched a few matches from the Big Event 86'. 

Rougeaus vs Dream Team was fair though the heat went on way too long. What the fuck is up with the shit referee? Perhaps the shittest I have ever seen in my entire time of watching wrestling in any promotion! He counts SO slowly, easily 2-3 seconds between each count - putting his hand under the shoulders between each to make sure they are down - then at the end dismisses this for a count with normal cadence. AGH. He is slow, pudgy and as Monsoon says "lethargic". In asking is someone gave up he just flapped his hands around above his head, standing almost upright without being anywhere near the wrestler's head. 

Has anyone got a worse example of a referee? It was astoundingly shit.

I've been watching each series of Tough Enough in order.

 

I am nearing the end of Season 3 (which has been very good) and one of the kids did a phenomenal rib.

Details are below...

Jonah is a bit of a practical joker, but at one point he gets legitimately hurt in training and has to get looked at in hospital.

The doctor gives him the all clear, just needs to take some medication and training can continue as normal. He then heads back to training and puts on a bandage around his head and a neck brace before having the medic help him walk in to "say his goodbyes".

He tells the group how much he loves them all and has most of them crying before making the genius move of asking them all to tell him how much they will miss him before he leaves.

It gets super emotional but he doesn't break character once and does the big reveal perfectly. I loved it.

Just finished watching the Ruthless Aggression series, especially loved the Brock episode. Mind blowing to think he was only there for 2 years in his first run. 
 

Anybody anymore recommendations to pass the time during this lockdown?

Yeah Breaking Ground was the true Tough Enough successor, not all those wank ones they did from about 2004 on when they clearly weren't invested much in it anymore. Fondly remember hating Tino 'Look I has no aptitude or personality for this, but it was my bro's dream" Sabbatelli. Also the talent relations guy was actually called Canyon Ceman, which is the most WWE name for an on air personality you could possibly generate.

Where am I best starting to re-run NWO period in WCW? BATB '96?

That’s where they become the 3 piece, but May 27th Nitro is where the angle starts with Scott Hall’s debut

Great American bash is a great PPV with a good angle. I'd either go from the week after Nash debuted or GAB.
