PWInsider posted:

A number of NXT UK talents have taken to social media over the last few hours, noting their excitement about soon being back in the ring.

We are told that while there was a lot of speculation about a conference call held today with members of the talent roster, the call was more or less a chance for WWE officials to touch base with the NXT UK roster, telling them to be ready to get back to work when the time was right.

There's been talk of taping material for NXT UK soon but nothing is concrete in terms of when that will be. WWE obviously has a plan as last week's TV episode saw talents beginning to cut promos and teasing rivalries again, as opposed to just overviews of older content.

I remember how hot Ron Killings was in TNA before they knocked the legs out from under him. I knew he would never get pushed to that level in the WWE when he signed in 2008, but I also did not think he would win any sort of title 37 times and be on Raw 10-20 minutes every week even as a joke; I figured he'd have a run in WWE then come back to TNA and they'd finally give him a real push.

I maintain that Heel R-Truth was a main event worthy character until WWE turned him into lol monkeycheese humour after 3 months

this clip is really good and has the all-time great "THATS ILLEGAL" chant (6:48 in the video) but it suffers a bit on the re-watch because of Cole's scripted lines about R-Truth's championship hopes being "up in smoke" before truth even does the turn

Ziggler was great in the ring for a long time. He probably still is. But, they were so hot and cold on him for so long that it became useless to care or be interested in him. That's what really killed him for me as a character, I think. Same promos about being overlooked and ignored, small boost in position on the card, lose the feud and fade away again.

Best part of that match was when Mox hit his finisher and then casually motions the ref over to count 3 while he makes a super lazy pin. It was the finish Dolph deserved.

Fans who meet him 1 on 1 actually say he's super friendly and approachable. He even thanked one guy for being a fan. I think Brock hates wrestlers.

I have no idea if itís the case and Iím not gonna go back and find out, but Iíve wondered if that was clipped from a Tough Enough episode because he says a lot of poo poo just like that to the MMA dude throughout the season when heís making GBS threads on him. He was constantly ripping on him for not caring about wrestling and having no training.

The poo poo talking I've seen normally comes from the fact that he's supposed to be handsome and smart, but with a neck tattoo.

And he wants to do more acting......despite his giant distracting neck tattoo that make up departments would have to do heaps of work with.

Itís a very unfortunate place to have a mediocre tattoo. Like do whatever you want to your body but I tend to err on the side of unless youíre a tattoo artist donít put poo poo on your face or close to it.

Going back to Ziggler, he and Brock got along due to their amateur wrestling backgrounds and Ambrose treating dolph like that pissed off Lesnar which is why he just beat the dogshit out of Ambrose and won at WM and moved on

If this is a joke/reference I'm not getting I apologize but Ambrose's title match with Ziggler was Summerslam 2016, Brock's match against Ambrose was like four months earlier at Wrestlemania.

Was there an earlier Ziggler burial promo? Was Lesnar bitten by a cake scarab and cursed with the second sight?
