    Britt and Rosa was just nuts. 5 stars any day of the week. If you need another crazy one from this week I'll suggest the New Japan Cup finals. Ospreay vs Shingo, another 5 star beauty.

    I will watch the hell out of this. I'm actually moving soon and will have satellite TV so I may actually start watching AEW regularly.

    Sounds like TK shelled out the cash for the rights to "Where Is My Mind?" for Orange Cassidy's theme.

    Peacock acquisition of WWE Network is crap. Their current catalog is a joke. Allegedly they will have all Network content by SummerSlam time.

    Why not have the archives fully there when it launched? Now I don’t have whatever I wanna access between now and August roughly because of this. I dread to see how much Attitude Era PPV and RAW episodes are edited and censored in the future after NBCUniveral’s little review marathon.

    Someone on another forum said they watched Royal Rumble 2000 today, a pretty raunchy show by today's standards, and it was left pretty much untouched compared to the Network's version. There's a possibility they are just editing out racial stuff, which is fine by me. The bigger problem is of course the slow trickle of stuff coming in, when it really should have just been all there from the beginning. And the interface, not being as specific to skip to a certain match or segment like you could on the Network.

    Why edit the racial stuff? Wrestling is pretty much founded on the racial stereotypes

    Having an entire angle based on Shane McMahon calling him Braun Strowman stupid leading to a Mania match is everything that makes me love professional wrestling.

    Shane showed Strowmans “report card” with all Ds and a picture of him with “2+2=5”

    That’s peak fucking comedy

    I don't know what's worse, that or the stupid Choo Choo train noises, the WWE used on him last week!

    Kyle O'Reilly and Adam Cole both got the absolute worst new theme music. Is WWE even trying with themes anymore??

    I'm not sure of anyone here collects this stuff but I'm gonna ask anyways.

    I have been able to track down the majority of the Countdown Shows / Free For All's from 1995, but I can't find the ones for Survivor Series and King of the Ring, along with the Free For All from the original In Your House (the first one where Sid asks for a do over).

    Can anyone help me here?

    I love watching these things before said PPVs, to properly recreate the experience of being 12 years old again.

    Shows like that are why I'm still a fan after 32 years.

    Just started watching. Is this the first time there has ever been a weather delay for a WWE PPV? I cant remember ever seeing that before.

    -EDIT-

    Once the awkward delayed start was over, Night One ended up being the most enjoyable Mania since Wrestlemania 31. So many solid matches. Rollins and Cesaro knocked it out of the goddamn park. And then holy ass shit at the Bad Bunny match. Expected a very quick fluff match just to put Bunny over, and instead, got a solid 15 minute match that Bunny legit carried. Had WAY more fun watching this than I expected. Excited to see what Night Two is going to be like now.

    Peacock is dogshit. They’re so shit they don’t even have a pause or rewind button on streams.

    Well Night 2 really struggled, in my opinion. Asuka vs. Ripley and the Triple Threat match were great, but everything else felt like a standard WWE event. That Orton and Fiend match was a fucking joke.

    I hate the Fiend storyline so much. The Alexa Bliss angle blows. I had high hopes for my girl but they dashed it against the rocks like they always do with their writing. Utterly atrocious. Sick of this gimmick.

    Night 2 was ok, but i do agree that night one was so much better!

    - Loved Samy/Owens
    - Asuka/Rhea was good, but it go zero reaction
    - The Fiend was (already) a Joke, but man, that match buried him!
    - Big E vs Apollo was dumb
    - I liked the main event, i just hated the "Roman wins, lol" thing at the end, can't stand the guy.
