1st half was fantastic, i havn't enjoyed brit wrestling so much in a long time, 6 way was realy entertaining, as was the comedy match with nigel (wolf), unfortunatly the second half was a cluster-fcuk! basicaly the first half was pcw the second half was an allstars camp show! shaun (the hammer) was put in with totaly the wrong guy, deano was not at his best with his opponent clearly dropping his full weight on him at the end of the match and winding him,and mikey whipweck, well ive seen mikey a million times and this was the worst i have ever seen this otherwise fantastic all-rounder!!
great crowd at the show although at one point during the "main event" the crowd was paying more attention to each other than it was the match!
great venue too, loving the fact that it was a lot more adult orientated than a lot of uk shows and that i could sit in a different room by the bar and watch the action live on a plasma telly! :)

Certainly was a great night. Although as mk said the second half was poor, such a shame when the first half was one of the best I've seen in ages.

Nice to meet up with people and see the face behind a name :wink:

Looking forward to seeing Nigel McGuinness again on Friday.

Will agree with The Hammer, basically they have built him up to be a beast in PCW, he has had 2 vs 1 and 3 vs 1 matches previously, and he has a Batista look about him. I think ValKab was booked because he has a WWE Development contract offered at the Smackdown shows recently and wont be about over here for a long time, depending on what happens with that. Which is why the match was booked, will have to ask Steve to find out for sure like.

I thought there was some dead weighting in some of the matches, but I wasnt sure and didnt wanna look a plank saying it either lol

But, the PCW stuff is very good, Travis and Lionheart had an amazing match the other month http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZWa_fqilWl8 which I was gutted I missed.

Was really good to meet up with peeps, spent much of the time socialising and missed most of the Mastiff/ Blackpool Blondes matches, erm oops. Probably a good job i missed the Blondes, vs MOB, cause they nicked me mates chair for the clothesline spot...

Dave Rayne, Mad Man Manson <3 love em to bits.

Helensification, enjoy McGuinness on friday, The speech he did for the raffle, was really humbling, he was great in ring as well.

I've been watching alot of ECW matches (due to creating arena's on WWE 12) - god the WWE runied it soooooooooo bad when they had it!

CM Punk finally winning the WWE title - thank god! WWE was getting so boring for me

I really hope WWE change the look of the WWE belt - really had enough of this one already

Are WWE really wanting the Hardcore title back? They might as well bring back the ECW title for the hardcore stuff

WrestleZone:
An interesting story regarding Brodus Clay, which is coming from a report by the Wrestling Observer, states that when Clay finished shooting a movie for WWE Studios earlier this year, he asked what WWE creative had planned for him. WWE officials responded by saying they had no idea and suggested he come up with an idea for himself.

Brodus came up with the idea of being a monster heel that doesn't sell for the babyfaces, then beats them up and inducts them into his personal "House of Pain," similar to World Heavyweight Champion Mark Henry. Brodus reportedly was told that it was a great idea.
Not cool bro. Guy comes up with a good gimmick that the wwe could have made a new star with and they gave the gimmick to Mark Henry.

Triple H has been ranked #20 on Boston Phoenix's "Unsexiest Men of 2011" list, an annual survey ranking the 100 "least appealing dudes."

Triple H to Mark Zuckerberg - 100 Unsexiest Men of the Year 2011.

#20: The night before his WWE contract expired, CM Punk snatched the WWE championship from the loathed John Cena, and wrestling was edgy and cool again . . . for about a week. Then Triple H — Vince McMahon's son-in-law and inexplicable "star" from 2003 — hogged the Monday Night Raw cameras for the entire summer. The censored?
