cant comment on peacock but since wwe wet onto BT I've had barely any problems, the tiny amount I have had were either due to my router rebooting itself or the BT Sport app needing an update

TBF New Jack could have come back to earth by doing a dive from heaven and it wouldn't get a pop from people who had to see two and a half hours of Raw.

Sean says he wouldn't be surprised if Jeff Jarrett started another company. He should get Conrad involved.

Maybe once things pick up more for ROH we'll see some folks go there. There's only limited spots in AEW, Impact, NJPW Strong, NWA, MLW etc. If he gets the backing then Double J should definitely consider another promotion since there's some real good talent available.

The problem is ROH is being pretty up front they are not going to pay much. The idea is to get really young wrestlers who will work very cheaply just to be seen on television. That's why Jay Lethal and the Briscoes, who all said they were going to stay in ROH until they retired, went to AEW. They can't be afforded under the new plan.

WWE isn't even trying not to be a shit company. Even for them, this is odd.

"I am the Jew in Jiu Jitsu" is his best line in a long time.

I'm watching SS. I think this is the first non-NXT show I've watched since last year's WM. Everything I'm about to say has been posted a million times already but when you stop watching you forget about them.

The camera switching. Holy shit, I thought I was going to have a seizure during the Becky/Flair match. The non-stop cutting combined with the colours and brightness is overwhelming and offputting.

The commentary. Cole is Cole and Corey is Corey. But McAfee was fucking horrible. This must have been the first full show I've heard him on. I didn't know he was that bad.

The Raw tag title match just finished. All the matches so far have been OK. Nothing amazing. The problems mentioned above overshadow everything though.

Someone just stole Vince's egg. Oh dear...

Jaysus, what was the point of all those Rock videos if he wasn't even going to show up?

They didn't know he wasn't coming. He cancelled at the last minute so they only got the egg from his new movie. I think he was going to get into a face off with Roman at the end.

Maybe he swerved them as revenge for Nia.

ETA Meltzer said it's not true, they knew he's filming a movie in Europe so couldn't come back without quarantining. So it was just a shitty show as planned.

I thought they must have been building it up for him to appear on Raw or Smackdown. Imagine getting Vince involved with a storyline that is just some rando stealing a "$100m" egg that looks like they got off Aliexpress.

Back to McAfee, I remember him being good as a heal on NXT. Did a bit of a search, and people seem to like his commentary. He toned it down a bit in the second half of the show but I didn't enjoy his constant yelling, it reminded me of Jericho on Rampage, which I also don't like.

Becky/Charlotte was good but would have been better if it was done in AEW with their production and commentators.
