I’ve only been to the Bonus Arena once since it opened, but to compare it to somewhere, it’ll be similar in size to the Cambridge Corn Exchange shows they did right at the start, although not with that ye old times feel.

Bonus Arena is actually twice the size of the Cambridge Corn Exchange.

Really good angle with Walter and Tyler Bate there.

Just how much better would RAW be with angles like this on it. They've diluted their own product so much by spreading it out over all these shows. PPV's are filled with filler like Miz vs. Ziggler when they could be building stars with stuff like this on their flagship show.

I also think the main shows suffer terribly from too many cooks syndrome due to being overly controlled.

The great thing about the smaller brands is that usually their creative team and process is smaller and simpler, allowing them to generally be better booked.

I don’t watch the show but is referee Chris Roberts on it often now?

Rev Pro tweeted it will be his last event for them on the weekend and he retweets NXT UK quite often, quite surprised if he’s with them full time as he’s rather tall.

He's worked a few shows with them recently, and looks to be going full-time. They had turned him down in the past for being too tall for them, but obviously that doesn't seem to be the case any more.

In that it's no longer an issue. They haven't kneecapped him.

I read somewhere or maybe heard on a podcast that Chris has signed to wwe and will be going full time for them. If that's the case then massive well done to him he's worked so hard over the years to be one of the best ref's this country has to offer

Takeover Cardiff is “sold out”, but it’s one of those magic sold outs we’re you can still buy tickets on TicketMaster.

Also, Cesaro is going to be there for some reason

Throwing shit at a wall and hoping it sticks.

Does anyone remember Balor vs Devlin? At all?

Bang on.

And some of you had the gall to defend that shower of shite.

Re: Balor v Devlin - I remember them looking like a Tag Team that had split and were having the feud match, and being very happy that I wasn’t watching Travis Banks.

That first UK Takeover is a bit of a crack in hindsight to be honest. I remember enjoying the Bate/Seven v Grizzled Young Vets Tag match, but they did the ‘Frye/Takayama Punchy’ spot in 3 separate matches, and Dunne/Coffey should have been at least 10 minutes shorter than it was.

Let's hope Cesaro arrives in Cardiff to turf Banks out of another Takeover and takes his spot against Dar.

I would enjoy watching Cesaro swing Banks away. He'd probably launch him across the border, proportionally it'd be like flinging a Mighty Max.

What's this spot? Is it the cartoon-ish thing that Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens feel compelled to do whenever they square up?
