Skip?

Did you catch NXT and Backlash this weekend? If not I am refraining from spoilers.

Can't believe what I'm reading. Grown men watching wrestling, thought this had gone out with the Ark.

And I'm sitting here watching The Bill for the third time.

And enjoying it.

Wrestling peaked in the 90s ORF and was massively popular and mainstream. If you were in your teenage years it was a perfect belnd of violence, excitement, and er 'puppies'. I was already a hulkamaniac from the 80s (primary school days) but millions came on board in what was known as the 'attitude era'

Gone are the days of big daddy and kendo nagasaki, it's big business these days, a slickly produced and managed worldwide juggernaut. It's really not just for the young uns but I suspect very hard to get into if you didn't follow it as a kid.

I'm a wrestling fan and proud of it, it's less embarrassing than most of what goes on on Vital! Also I gave up trying to be cool many, many years ago, I like what I like and bollox to the naysayers (not aimed at you ORF, just in general).

It's also much more entertaining than watching Forest

Don't disagree at all Skip, just a bit of gentle stirring on my part on a fairly quiet day. And I think you're right about the timing involved, I can remember the start of it but too late in the day for me as I was heavily involved with a biggish family and a demanding job in those days.

Just for once I'm glad I wasn't there to see the game yesterday. Still living in hope though!

Welcome back Skip!

Okay first and foremost. Have you seen the Tyler Bate vs. Pete Dunne match from the last Takeover? If not, holy crap on a crap biscuit go and watch it now. Match of the year IMO.

Also.. Nakamura clean over Cena. Thoughts?

I've hardly seen anything Fen, lot's of catching up to do - I missed takeover completely but will focus in on the Tyler Bate match.

I strangely enjoyed the Rusev vs Gable match from Smackdown last week, I could be wrong but I've always thought Gable could go far despite his size. Definitely not sold on Jason Jordan as a singles guy or as Kurt Angles' kid!

I'm glad Nakamura went over Cena but it just didn't feel like it was done right to me, his booking in general hasn't really felt right (I know that sounds weird). I did think he'd killed Cena with the exploder suplex though, jeez that was a rough landing!

I haven't seen much of Raw but noticed they're building up to a Rollins - Ambrose reunion which would be ok by me. I'm not sure Jinder is a good opponent for Nakamura and one thing happened on Smackdown that I really hate...Rusev "Nobody wants to face me at Summerslam" - then shits his pants when his own music plays followed by a feud out of nothing when Randy pops up. Just always seems thrown together and lazy when it's done like that.

The Gable thing is a dropped ball, I like Jordan but it just doesn't work for me. Part of me is hoping for a rectonned swerve where Gable ends up being the son, but honestly by that point they may have done enough damage with the angle, in which case keep him well away. I like how Gable carries himself for a smaller chap. He has he chops for it, but with how the company book people lately I don't trust them.

OH Bayley, how much have they ruined her? She was literally the easiest to book person on the entire roster and a license to print money. But, noooo they totally fooked her. Have to say the Toronto crowd were pretty tasteless booing someone with a legitimate injury (separated shoulder apparenly).

Cena Nakamura was great and that exploder was damn scary. Looks to be like Cena's error though. I am not sure this is the right time for Nakamura's main event debut against... Jinder of all people. Here's to hoping Nakamura wins, gets the the belt, holds it until mania and then we get an AJ Nakamura main event (I can dream right?).

Hey Rasslin fanz, not been here for a while (thanks for the prompt Fen).

Unfortunately our boy has lost interest and there ain't enough hours in the day for me to justify watching it on my Jack, two things though:

1. Pleased to see Flair get through his issues;
2. Sexy Star should never be allowed in the ring again.

I ain't dead yet muthafookers.

Agreed on the Sexy Star LBL. AAA should be blackballing her. It's not even so much what she did, it's her response after that seems to to be the worst part.

If you get a chance to dip in again LBL. You have to see the Bate vs. Dunne match from Takeover: Chicago. Tis fookin excellent.

Not long back from an extended break in the states, unfortunately no rasslin events (apart from NXT) close enough to us to catch, my daughter was desperate to get a good sign going for tv as well.

I've been trying to get back into the last few weeks of tv I've missed so just wanted to comment on a few notable things;

I can't believe Vince is taking bumps at his age, I know it must be good for ratings and KO is a good worker but I just don't think Vince should be doing that!

I enjoyed the controversial Cena/Reigns back and forth, not a great fan of either but Cena exposes Reigns lack of mic skills so much it's just embarrasing.

Is it over for Enzo? If he's as unpopular backstage as reported surely he's a drop in merch sales away from being done. He can't touch Neville in the ring, I think it could be a painful watch.

Not much going on with the women but I though Nia looked smokin hot when she came out for commentary with Bliss. Weird I know.

The No Mercy card is looking decent imo and I hope we can get starrcade on the network at least. I miss some of those WCW ppvs, let's get halloween havoc back next!

Fear not I am still alive.

Yeah the product is pretty pants on head terrible at the mo. Watch HiTC last night and the Usos vs. New Day match was bloody awesome.

I think they are teasing a Nakamura AJ match at mani (please god let it be true!) but then I don't think Vince wants anything overshadowing his hardon for the predictable Reigns Brock main event.

Just noticed you're still alive and glad to hear it Fen.

We need to at least keep the rasslin thread above the boring thread, although I'm sure some will argue they're the same thing.

I'm actually up to date at the minute, I was even watching HiTC on my phone on the way home from work! AJ deserves a proper mania match, no offence to Jericho or Shane but we need to see him in the semi-main (as SC calls it) at least.

Enjoyed the tag match in the cell too, one of the brightest feuds on any roster for a long time. Not so keen on the Jinder-Nakamura match but it was as expected, just ok. I think Shane needs to quit the cell though, his kids don't need to see him die ffs. Nice to see them taking it seriously when KO mocked Shane

In random wrestling-related news, I spent a good while in Hogan's beach shop in the states, got some good memorabilia to check out in there and an excellent selection of belts. Also found some late 80s/early 90s WWF/WCW figures and even rings when clearing out my mums old place recently. Some proper retro goodness but not my full original collection, definitely a few missing like Demolition, Rick Rude, Andre etc (some of my first buys unfortunately). Makes me wish I'd actually been a collector but it was hard enough to convince my wife to marry me as it was.

Finally, I don't think we can avoid Reigns/Lesnar, the VKM hardon is too strong on that one.

Alright Fen,

If you're out there fella it would be good to get your take on the emergency changes to the TLC card and the state of wrestling in general.

Attendances seem way down, perhaps there is a club out there that could save the wwe! Or maybe I've been listening to too much Dave Meltzer and things aren't that bad.

Once again the rumours of my demise are greatly overplayed.

Loved the changes to the card and what went from a 1 match card turned into a very good card. Loved the Finn vs AJ match.

Big news though!.. Did you see that Chris Jericho vs Kenny Omega for WK12 has been made for Jan 4th. I nearly shat my pants when I saw it. It's worth checking out on youtube when Y2J drops the challenge.

Did you see this Skip? Charlotte Flair with a Forest shirt on?

Fen,

We need to work at this wrestling thread thing, we seem to catch posts every few weeks so our comments are out of time with each other!

Was not keen on the naked Charlotte pics but put her in a Forest shirt and she's clearly marriage material. Drinking with the father-in-law would also be an interesting experience!

I did see Jericho appear on screen and challenge Omega - I've started following the bc more closely these days, I've even started to take a shine to the bucks - mainly just through watching the elite on youtube.

I've also started listening to some Cornette stuff as he never fails to crack me up on just about any subject. I've also made more of an effort to keep up to date with wrestling in general as things have settled down after a bitch of a year for me.

I've already caught War games, SS and last night's Raw. I thought War games was more entertaining than SS to be honest, honourable mentions for Velveteen vs Aleister Black and Adam Cole (Bay Bay) and Killian Dain in the main. I literally have no idea about the booking for the mens 5 on 5 at SS though, that shit went downhill fast and I thought it was beyond terrible.

Although I enjoyed Brock vs AJ I'm getting bored with Brock and didn't like AJ looking so weak for the first part of the match. Probably my bias as I'm a huge mark for AJ.

Other random thoughts: Vince has given up on Finn, KO and Sami are a bit lost, Angle really looks his age even though I love him, and Baron Corbin still has the charisma of a plank of wood.

Right if you reply by clash of champions I'll reply to that around the Rumble
