You don't yank on the Spine of God


I'm thinking about going to Hell in a Cell in Detroit and I was wondering if anyone had any advice about where to sit and how long I should wait to buy tickets (I remember people talking about how Battleground really struggled to sell)

Important question: Did Corey Graves scream "KIIIINSHAASAAAA" when Nakamura hit it?

I was too busy screaming it myself to hear, unfortunately.

I was bummed that Gulak got saddled with that gimmick at first, but he's really made it fun.

I expected not to like Drew Gulak at all, aside from his dragon sleeper finisher. He doesn't have much of a 'look' and once he was given this gimmick, I figured he'd be completely forgettable. Instead, he has consistently entertained me, and while he'll probably never be my favorite cruiserweight, I'm really glad he's given some time to shine

Hello chiicagooo!

Oh, wait, is that a GameStop employee in the back? Hey, you, give me a refund. No, I don't care if it was my fault, just - look, am I the one with the microphone or not? REFUND, biyotch!

Have they said explicitly that the WWE title match will be in the cell? I noticed them doing the thing where they make a point of saying "at the HIAC PPV" all the time.

My immediate thought is that the actual cell match is gonne be Shane / Owens , lol

I call the darkness unto me from deepest depths of Earth and sea. From ancient evils unawoken, break the one that can't be broken. To blackest night, I pledge my soul and crush my heart to burning coal. To summon forth a deathly power, to see my hated foe devoured.


Drew Gulak and Jack Gallagher are alternating between which is my favorite cruiserweight depending on who most recently had a good segment.

If you can't afford the first two or three rows on the floor, get first tier seats on the long side of the arena.

No idea how long to wait, but I imagine HITC will sell at least a little bit better than Battleground given the gimmick match(es).

Not that it's not a waste of Owens or anything but I think it's more a function of the fact that they want to give KO a high profile program, not anything about Shane.

Their assumption that Shane is a high profile program is as faulty now as it was when they stuck AJ with him.

At this point, every PPV needs more BRRRRAAAAAAAUUUUUUUNNNNNN. Good in the ring, especially in a big hoss-off, and can make even poorly written promos good. Seriously give him the drat belt already. He is the best thing going in the company right now, although part of that is certainly due to WEAK booking of talent like AJ, Zayn and Finn Balor.

I love Nakamura but am I alone in thinking the Kinshasa looks kinda weak and just isnt a great finisher? The way he hits it it just doesnt seem like he's hitting with much power and is more pushing them with his knee. I'm sure a lot of it is down to how well it's sold but yea looking back on when he did the Bomaye it was a much more brutal hit, more head on with his knee than the sorta turn and push he does now.

Yeah the Kinshasa isn't bad but it could definitely have more impact. It's not going to look very good if/when Alistair Black is called up and starts hitting Black Mass on people.

Also BRRRRAAAAUUUNNNN should not only win both titles, he should be the first superstar permitted to go on excursions to other companies in order to show his dominance, because I want BRRRRAAAAAAAUUUUUUNN vs. Okada, and I want a double kip-up spot.

I honestly think it's the way wwe films it. Because in NJPW it always looks like a killer. I think WWE purposely shoots it a certain way because they don't like head strikes.

gently caress. Yes.

I would also like to see him throw Kenny Omega from the setup for one winged angel.

Over the ropes and out of the ring if that is legit possible without some serious injury.
