If this is half as good as the last match, it will still be 5 times as good as WWEs last PPV

Actually wrestling Dontaku was better than Payback

Tommy End to go main soon, book him as a Randy Orton (only less boring)

Would thoroughly recommend NXT Takeover, the UK match between Bate and Dunne was incredible and there was a brilliant heel turn as well

Id also recommend a fair bit of the Best of the super Jrs
Mainly the Osprey and Skrull matches

Also Ospreys pokes at Orton during his Ricochet match, copying Ortons stuff then the promo at the end

Thanks but I dont think the world wants another House of Horrors match

Would like to try some Japanese wrestling but time is the main obstacle. With Raw, Smackdown NXT and now the UK show that's about 8 hours a week

Dont watch WWE live, skip bits of no interest, I have most of it on fast foward

Most shows on NJPW world now have English commentary
You dont need to fully watch every show, usually the last half

I download Raw and SD (no way I'm getting Sky just for that) which takes out all the adverts so makes a big difference to the run time. Trying to watch it live for 3 hours would be a real endurance test. I did like one of Meltzer's tweets during the UK show, which was along the lines of "why is there so much wrestling going on, I want a 20 minute backstage segment"

Did used to try to watch RAW live

Add breaks every 10 minutes and they where the same adds
I find it hard watching Impact on Spike for this same reason, also the constant replays of matches from last week

When you're watching Smackdown or the WWE Experience and then they show a match replay with a flash banner saying "RAW Exclusive!"

Don't they know what "exclusive" means ?

Daft move. I'm all for someone new having an opportunity, but you need to build them up. Just taking a jobber then putting your most prestigious belt around his waist is not the way to do it.


Also, ouch.......

Its all for getting those from India watching

Orton winning would be blatant,
Mahal winning is unexpected

Only match worth watching was Owens vs Styles
Maybe the Usos vs Brezango because it was funny

Damn, my usual "tv channel" for watching Raw and SD has been closed down. Don't suppose anyone knows of any others?
