I know talent is scarce these days but they need to be more creative than bringing in utter toss like those two. Benn there and done fuck all.

For the first time in half a decade, I've a flicker of interest in TNA. Be a shame if this is the best they can do.

I was always a mark from Sid from first seeing him 1990-91-ish to early 1997. Also his "run" in ECW.

I think he was hurt by the return to WCW. It made everyone a no-mark and for Sid, his promos became tragic and his work absolutely rotten. He was never a workhorse but his stuff wasn't bad before that. He could have a decent match with the right guy and was always fun to watch kill a jobber.

There's a lot retrospectively pinned on him that was only true of those later years when he became really, really, really shit.

The Shane McMahon match is the best match for AJ. It leaves Cena in limbo but if you're purely concerned for Styles then a match against someone the masses still think is a big name that he will go over in is far better for him than a match with Cena that will be really good but that will only cement the impression that Cena is better than AJ.

I'd have AJ go over in spotty weapon filled match and ready him for a run with Bray or Randy after Mania.

I can't honestly say that match quality bothered me at all as a kid (I still don't rank it as highly as most people do).
If anything, if WWF Superstars only showed the entrances and skipped right to the finish of matches, I wouldn't have complained too much.


Interesting stuff. I'm not one for bell to bell these days. I enjoy a good match and I love going back and watching great matches but certainly week to week, I couldn't give a fuck about what happens in most matches, only the outcome.

When I was a kid though, I really liked quality matches. Not that I ever thought about it in those terms but when I saw WM3, I loved that Savage/Steamboat match more than anything else on the show. I mean, I was a kid so I loved King Kong Bundy getting beaten up by midgets and the Hogan/Andre staredown but Savage/Steamboat was definitely the thing that I loved the most. I was immediately drawn to guys like Savage, Bret Hart and The Rockers because of the way they wrestled. I don't know if I could explain why now, I just was.

It's not purely a workrate thing. Ultimate Warrior and British Bulldog were favourites of mine, didn't ever like someone like Tito Santana.

By the time WM10 came around, I was well on board with this "New Generation". I'd been on the Bret bandwagon for years and Shawn to a certain extent. I was always a big fan of Savage. I bought into the Lex Express stuff until SummerSlam so I didn't mind him and I'd dug Kona Crush. Owen was a little shit but I thought he was a good wrestler and Ramon was really growing on me too. I can't say I missed Hogan even the teeniest, tiniest bit.

No love for the festival of friendship or Joe segments? Raw felt a notch fresher. It all does now we've got past the eternal Rollins/Reigns V Owens/Jericho business


I thought it was a decent show. Enjoyed both those brilliant segments, them finding something different to do with Roman, the Strowman/Henry hoss match and the Zayn/Joe setup.

Didn't like Steph's involvement at all, particularly that fucking abysmal Teddy Long "impression", or the really, really, really obvious Women's main event title change ... again.
