Antonio Cesaro's 'Neutraliser' finsher always looks like he's grabbing the opponent's crotch to me.

Maybe should call it the nutraliser instead :wink:

I'd not really seen too much of him due to lack of TV coverage but caught Jay Lethal at a local show last weekend and was really impressed with the way he carried himself. Genuinely seemed happy to be there and was talking to anyone who went near him (whether they wanted to or not, seemingly!). Later in the night he was taking on Martin Kirby, good match going really well, Kirby thrown out the ring and Lethal runs to the ropes and dives over the top rope just as a little girl ran down the aisle. He tried to watch his landing so kid didn't get completely crushed and pushed Kirby away from her before picking her up, making sure she was alright and carrying her back to her seat on his shoulders to cheers. Later in the match he forced Kirby to apologise, of course once he gets back in the ring does the heel thing and informs said child he's not sorry at all. Match carries on and finishes as normal then during the interval Lethal quietly gave the little girl a whole host of free merch. Really got a lot of respect for the guy and so good to see an import who seems happy to be there and comes across well. No £15 charges for taking a photo with your phone here, Mr Cabana...

Oh, and there's not many things more bizarre to see then Sabu walking down the high street with a couple of steel chairs just purchased from Wilkos!

Just picked up Wrestlemania 3 Championship Edition DVD and saw the new year in whilst watching it. Does anyone know if they ever released any of the others in that series? I can only find the mega expensive boxset or the cheap 2 shows on 1 dvd?

There is no Championship Edition series. Wrestlemania 3 is the only one.

Keep an eye out on CEX website, I managed to get the Anthology box sets (silver vision releases) on there at reasonable prices, those are virtually uncut, sadly as time passes on, more and more gets edited out of the DVD releases due to copyright lapses, people who are written out of WWE history for various reasons etc. Avoid the standalone releases of the earlier Wrestlemania/Survivor Series etc, they are edited.

Since the Silver Vision contract ended last year, I'd expect to see WWE take a more online route of selling old matches/events.
WANTED: Mario Party 3 on N64 (just the Box only) ANY SNES GAMES, OR EMPTY SNES BOXES, INSTRUCTION MANUALS or WHITE INNER TRAYS.

considering the rise of this thread

Current good things about WWE
D-bri vs Wyatts (no RAW spoiler), Shield (to split?), NXT, tag divisions return

Current bad
Cena vs Orton for the over 9000!!!th time, Cesario being downgraded, Batistas return (if he wins the rumble I will be put off WM right away), Sandows plummit,
