I would prefer if they were doing Mustache mountain tags and Pete Dunne singles, but over the summer when they came over to us, they were exlusively doing six man matches with a ton of comedy. We all just want Pete Dunne to bite people and kick the ref.

imagine not filming that match

WWE film everything, they just don't release it. And if you're going to talk about that, remember Sami talking about all the amazing Sami Zayn vs. Adrian Neville matches in front of 20 people.

I thought the argument was that WWE was looking to prevent a big UK-wide promotion/television program getting off the ground (World of Sports?) by offering small but guaranteed money to UK indy wrestlers so they could still wrestle the indies but not on any non-WWE television in the UK?

I think people said it was something like $20,000 a year to signed, and then paid per match/appearance. So if World of Sport became a hit, they'd be annoyed, but WWE kind of got them at a steal, all things considered. They likely pocketed an easy 20 grand, way bigger exposure than ever before, and still got to wrestle the indies as much as they wanted, just not on days WWE needed them (and no ROH, TNA, New Japan. Possibly mexican promotions as well, I don't know the details).

In happier news, whenever Trent Seven is there I'm astounded at how much he's willing to play second fiddle to the young guys. You can't tell me HHH has any involvement in the UK division.

Any idea why Alister Black was off of last night’s NXT live event in Bel Air?

He tweeted about it, but then was nowhere to be seen.

Fun show either way. Attendance could’ve been better. Not sure if it did better than the prior Bel Air show, but definitely down from 2 times ago (a sellout headlined by Joe/Aries vs Nakamura/Tye).

Black was most likely watching the Overeem fight. Both Dutch kickboxers and I do believe friends.

World of Sport kind of imploded all on it's own, mostly because the producers knew gently caress-all about wrestling and how their talent makes a living (sort of similar to Lucha Underground, just without AAA being around to strongarm people into doing it anyway) so ended up having to try and find someone to actually run the wrestling promotion side of things... and the person they got was Jeff Jarrett.

There was also the 5-Star promotion that is basically either a scam or a promoter that has no clue how to build his own talent.

Supposedly WWE are still trying to get the UK show onto somewhere like ITV, as they want it to be a real TV show, not a Network only thing.

I don't doubt it, but I think WWE made their moves before it became apparent that World of Sport wasn't gonna work out? When they were looking at JR as the commentator and there was at least the reasonable notion of it being on ITV weekly with a much larger potential audience than WWE?

They started a program like 2 weeks before both got called up as heels. I guess they felt the need to blow this off even though the alignments were all screwy now?

Is Dream legit hurt? We were speculating in the spoiler thread that they'd do a pre-tape to explain him being taken out of the tournament, but that was assuming the Johnny/Ohno match wasn't airing for a couple of weeks.

- Andrade's promo was, uh, rough, but could have gone worse. It is good he's not completely reliant on Zelina to talk
- Lars, on the other hand, should definitely not talk
- Killian Dain's music is kinda great and I'm not sure I've ever heard it before?
- The TUE promo was good, except for the really dumb cheesy ending. I like that they're just hanging out on weird scaffolding in the back
- Riott/Deville was good and I'm glad that short little feud got a decent coda. Dug the finish
- These press conferences are baaaaad. I like that they don't have enough extras to make the rabblerabblerabble part sound like anything other than three people going EmberEmberEmber. can I have my mic back was worth it though

Makes me fear what kind of German stereotype Alexander Wolfe is going to have mixed in to his version. Dain gets Celtic fiddles; Nikki got an electro synth remix; I assume Eric Young will have the basic theme, so that leaves Wolfe with some oompah cover.

A buttrock oompah tune would be absolutely awesome entrance music.

edit: i mean, really think about it. Like some bon jovi sounding poo poo but played on an accordion and with a distinct air of leiderhosen? Come on that'd be amazing.
