What did you think of the two big matches, Mas?

I'll see what I can rustle up for the sweepstakes. Might chuck in a 10 eShop code or something for the winner, we'll see!

Yeah they where good but I had the results spoiled which takes something away from them.

Did you catch the New Beginning in Sapporo, Mas? What were your thoughts?

What did everyone else think about the Rumble then this year? I thought it was one of the better Rumbles in a long long time. I do think the Women's Rumble should have been earlier in the show as the ending to the Men's Rumble killed the next two matches for me as I was totally drained after it. Although, I suppose the big debut at the end of the show wouldn't have mattered as much in the middle of the show.

Best rumble for a while, very good ppv up and down the card. I think two rumbles is too many and they'd be better off staggering them; men's for mania, women's for summerslam.

Also they need to invest in more female wrestlers going forward if they're doing thirty women rumbles, the match was great but they had to rely on a lot of surprise returns which won't have the same impact if they do the same again next time.

I think they realised that they needed more women on the roster with the debuts of the new lasses on Raw and Smackdown not too long ago. I think we'll see a load of NXT women making the jump onto the main roster sooner rather than later.

Yeah I loved that Rumble PPV & in the both rumble matches I was on the edge of my seat with the finishes, I agree with muss that the woman's was spoiled a tad with too many returns though. Also very few of them looked like they could keep up with the current roster (ones that could were Beth Phoenix, Lita, Trish & McCool) so I would have really preferred if the likes of Nikki Cross, Peyton Royce & Billie Kay got a shout.

I've not watched all of New Beginning in Sapporo but have seen what's happened, I think it will make the Bullet Club PPV interesting when that happens as I know what I'd book at the main event.

Yeah Rumble was good and has left some questions about Mania still, mainly in the women's division.

Really that weekend of wrestling was about NXT like always and even this weeks editions main event.

Does anyone else follow Triple H on Twitter? Jeff Jarrett is being inducted into this years HoF. I honestly never thought this would happen, especially after he held Vinny Mac by the short and curlies and threatened to no show a PPV. I'd have loved to have been in the meeting when JJ's name came up as a potential.

I thin the most awkward would have been with Randy Savage, though. Apparently there was a meeting with Vince and Randy was brought up in the conversation. The response was that Vince didn't want to do business with that man. Maybe he did show Stephanie just how Macho he was Very Happy

I really can't be surprised by anything with WWE and it's HoF anymore as wrestlers have had worse falling outs with WWE than Double J & came back.

Double J is an odd one as is Hof worthy but it's not for his WWE work though that he should be in one. I did see though in the press release they bring up he gave current stars like AJ, Joe there first chance in the business.

That's the thing though they aren't just inducting folk into HoF just because of what they done in WWE, it's what they contributed to the wrestling business as a whole.

I agree, just hard to talk about as it's not NJPW or something which WWE will bring up now and again.

As a former fan of TNA, JJ did do wonders with it considering the budget. AJ Styles really has done a lot better in WWE than I thought he would and TNA did give him that platform.
I'm still hopeful though that HH will make a return this year to WM.

I'd disagree with that - AJ didn't really get that aura of superstardom until he had his stint in NJPW. I'd heard of him before he went, but he really grabbed my attention after folks raved about him there. They strapped a rocket to him too as he got the IWGP World Championship in his first match there. They basically never do that with foreigners - the last person they gave that treatment to was Brock Lesnar.

Let's be honest he really got his career going when he broke the neck of Lionheart, what a legend.


















I'm joking of course but he is still a complete fanny

You joke, but the Styles Clash - and the wrestler by extension - definitely hit some headlines as both Lionheart and Yoshi Tatsu got their necks knackered around the same time.

I've heard that Lionheart is a complete fud, for real. I have a mate who had Lionheart as a Team Leader in the call centre they worked in. They said that Lionheart believed his hype, like he was a big celebrity superstar, and treated everybody like they were beneath him. Poor show.

Styles has been one of the absolute best for ages, certainly for over ten years now, and I'm happy to see that he's done as well as he has. I didn't expect it either, but his brilliance clearly couldn't be denied or held back.

As for wrestling, apart from the Royal Rumble, I've watched nothing from 2018, though I've binged on quite a few OSW Reviews in the last few days. Does anybody else watch those?

Yeah AJ was fantastic in TNA and when people like him left, killed that promotion for me.

Not really surprised to hear that but what makes it worse is his in ring work is just boring since he straight up copies a lot of The Rocks movements and moves, so he just doesn't have his own style & there's nothing worse than a wrestler that isn't original.

I don't know Dolph has made a career out of being a poor HBK.

Tuning up for a Superkick aside (which he likely does to gain heat) I wouldn't say his overall style is anything like HBK's.

I've always found him myself to be a poor HBK like with the whole show-off gimmick etc

OSW are cracking, love those lads. Their classic late 80s stuff is brilliant, but I think my personal favourite series they've covered is the Rock/Austin WMX7 feud. Happy days are here again!

Amazing news, it just felt right when he was doing those kicks again on Smackdown, I still can't help having this niggling feeling something will go wrong, here's hoping I'm wrong.
