TNA has been getting higher ratings than WWE in the UK.
Probably because it isnt a bugger to watch it

I'm guessing that TNA gets a bigger UK audience because you get Challenge TV in any basic entertainment package with Sky/Virgin/BT, whereas with WWE you have to pay for Sky Sports which will set you back £10-£15 a month.

Thank god for the internet though!

you cant watch CHALENGE after 5 with a BT box though, which realy pissed me off when it went on there, becouse on demand held back the episodes i was paying to watch until a week later, was not amused and even got into an argument on twitter with matt morgan and tommy dreamer!

So it's 'Night of Champions' tonight. Anyone want to take a guess of the outcomes?

My guesses are:

Mark Henry vs Randy Orton: Win to Randy Orton. Not sure how, but he's got to stay Champ, just because he's the front man for the WWE 12 game.

John Cena vs Alberto Del Rio: Win to Alberto. He'll cheat the win somehow against Cena.

R-Truth & The Miz vs Air Boom: Win to R-Truth and The Miz. They are my favs in the WWE at the moment, and I think they can relight the Tag Team matches again.

The Game vs CM Punk: Hard to call this one, but I'm hoping The Game wins, just because I love him being the new boss of the WWE. I'm just not a big fan of CM Punk, but I do think that Diesel will be back upsetting things again and playing a part in all of this.

Kelly Kelly vs some other big boobed barbie doll. Does anyone care about women wrestling anymore?

So what does everyone else think?

I agree with everything, except I just have a feeling that Air Boom will retain.

Would love to see Mark Henry win just for the shock value, but it's not happening.

Unsure what to think of the PPV, though seem to be staying up and watching more these days which is good

The giant Cena Head was funny

Match quality was okay apart from Rhodes vs Dibiase which I really couldnt give two hoots about

As for the main event

Horrible.. People are saying match of the year and stuff. It was contrived and the Awesome Truth interference and other stuff just completely destroyed any momentum it had, the worst Dusty finish possible.

At least Punk wasnt totally buried despite Nash No selling his offence 3 Pedigrees (?), a Jackknife and a kicking from Awesome Truth was surely enough to say he was beat

With Hell in a Cell in a few weeks could be a load of rematches

Well done to Mark Henry, despite being a heel, the crowd popped like no bodies business and Henry's post match speech was excellent as well. Thats how to book a monstah!

To celebrate their first theatrical release in more than a decade – Disney’s "The Muppets," opening this Thanksgiving – the Muppets will step into the ring on the Oct. 31 WWE Raw SuperShow to mix it up with the Superstars in Atlanta.

What will happen when Kermit the Frog meets The Viper? Will the Divas make Miss Piggy flip with jealousy? Will Beaker be confused for Sheamus? On Halloween, it's time to play the music, it's time to light the lights, because the Muppets are about to get Raw!
