I actually thought it was a pretty good show! Rousey vs Flair was way better than I'd expected with some interesting story implications at the end, and Lesnar vs Bryan went from being an utterly depressing burial to one of the most gripping and tense matches I'd seen in a while.

NXT Takeover blew it out of the water, mind you, but that's the norm these days.

This promo got me to check out TLC tonight.

I think that somebody - whether it's Daniel Bryan, Vince or a writer - deserves a pat on the back for making the decision to scrap the Yes Movement Daniel Bryan and to turn him into a nature-loving, anti-consumerism jerk. He wasn't exactly getting 2014 reactions after his time away, so this has really freshened up his character big style.

Also, NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 13 is coming up in a couple of weeks. I'll be posting a primer of sorts for those looking to jump on board for New Japan's biggest show of the year, so keep your eyes peeled for that.

Man, I doubt there's any tickets left but if you're off on January 4th you should definitely try to get a ticket for WK13.

I'd disagree - Korakuen Hall is a pretty small venue and will likely already be sold out. You're more likely to get a seat in the Tokyo Dome, even if it's pretty far back at this stage.

I'll let Switchblade Jay put up WK13 stuff but last night we finally got

I'll be putting this up elsewhere with some links to hype videos and pictures and whatnot, but here's a big primer on WK13 for those wanting to watch the show. My predictions are in there too in the last paragraph of each match preview, but I'll sum them all up at the end. It'd be cool to see some predictions from others here too!

WK13 Primer/Preview Thing - It's pretty long by the way, might wanna brew a cuppa first:

I've not been keeping up with NJPW as much as I like, so this has been a great help.

Anyway, my thinking is

Suzuki-Gun for the Gauntlet Match
Ospreay over Ibushi
LIJ for the Jr Tag match
ZSJ over Ishii
LIJ for the Heavyweight Tag Match
Juice over Cody
KUSHIDA over Ishimori
White over Okada
Naito over Jericho
Tanahashi over Omega

Mas: I can totally see the reasoning for Tana over Omega and Ospreay over Ibushi, but what about KUSHIDA over Ishimori?

Drunka: And I am jealous of you! Seriously, take lots of pictures so I can live vicariously through you (No video though, that's a huge no-no at NJPW shows, they'll ask you to leave).

I had 7/10 on my predictions - not bad!

It looks like a very exciting albeit tumultuous year ahead as a wrestling fan with AEW now kicking off in full. It's looking like they're building a hell of a roster with Jericho, PAC (FKA Neville) and the rest of the Elite gang. It's rumoured Billionaire Ted might be getting back into the wrestling game and giving them a shot on a major TV network in the US too. That'd be huge.

I really hope that happens as WWE have needed a kick up the arse for long time & only strong competition on their patch will do that.

The Rumble is a week away... who's game for another draw? We'll do it like last year's where the numbers you get are valid for both the Men's and Women's Rumble.

I'll play too. I don't watch regularly anymore, but I'm always going to make time for the Royal Rumble. I might even stay up for it, it's looking like a superb event on paper!

One of the benefits of having Sunday/Monday as my weekend means I can watch PPVs with no real hassle live. Grin

Rumble always lands on my birthday (also Res Evil 2 and Kingdom Hearts III this year) and I always have a week off for it, I may miss pre-show though as I'm out for birthday dinner mainly for my Nan's 80th then for my 29th.

Seems like it's only four for the Rumble Draw this year... EDIT: Balla was a late-comer on Twitter, so I had to redo the draw!

Here are your numbers then, gents.

Jay 8 12 13 16 24 28

Mas 5 11 15 18 26 29

Jas 7 20 21 22 23 30

TCK 1 3 6 9 10 19

Balla 2 4 14 17 25 27

Balla's probably got the best numbers, the bugger. Laughing

Also, genuinely amazed Jas ended up with 4 numbers in a row.

Best of luck to your wrestlers and enjoy the Rumble! I won't be watching live as I'm now working tomorrow, but I'll be catching it after work tomorrow evening. Grin

Looking to add to my one title thus far. Come on Roman! Unless I don't have Roman, in which case: come on Number 17!

It's unlikely that Roman will be in the Rumble, FYI Balla.

I'm hoping one of the Rumble matches kicks off the show or is early enough that I can stay up before turning in - I'm terrified of spoilers!
