Holy shit the swamp "match" was bad. It was like if Kevin Sullivan smoked 9 pounds of crack in 1995.

The one positive thing I'll say is I liked Bayley and Sasha. They are great heels and Bayley can cut a good annoying heel promo and Sasha has natural charisma.

Drew and Dolph was okay but kind of dull.

I didn't see the rest of the show.

god it was shite, I guess a nice touch in the other crap swamp foght was the Voorhees moment but apart from that... no.. just no. Guess this is what happens when former TNA guys are restricted by the WWE when it comes to writing (assuming te ex TNA ones wrote the swamp fight) if not then its what happens when they try to channel it through the family friendly filter of WWE.
As for the fake eyeball I've only seen it today in images like the one here as you couldnt even see it properly during the show, at least I couldnt, making it look like the exact same routine as in previous weeks just with added upchuck. Having seen the stills of it jesus christ, it as if they couldnt even be bothered with a trip to a 99 cent store for one & found something cheaper, because as we all know the WWE has no money

Just wanna remind everyone.

All those wrestling minds, plus 50 writers, and that's the best they can do thanks to Vince.

I can't wait until an inevitably fired Bruce Prichard has to defend this show on a future podcast.

Raw and Smackdown are being beaten by AEW and Impact in the UK. WWE has been replaced by AEW in Italy.

Covid or not, a rival wrestling company, 20 years after the Monday Night Wars, is beating the WWE. My own personal biases aside, this is something I never actually thought I would see.

That made Rey's eye look believable. It seems Dr. Britt has surpassed her fiance as a promo.

what a convincing bar fight last night, is it just me or are they actually getting a bit worse at these things now? sure it was decent enough to watch but lacked much feeling or impact (guess that means an old wwe writer may have done it)

I think the "cinematic" fights will be a regular thing going forward. Which when you think about it was what Matt started with the matches at the Hardy Compound.

Regarding UK ratings, WWEs now on BTSports which has a smaller customer base than Sky Sports I believe. Highlight packages are on Channel 5 and NXTUK is on Paramount TV which are free to air.

AEW is also on free to air TV (ITV4) and a truncated hour version is on ITV1 which is one of the original UK network TV channels. Impacts on two channels, ShowcaseTV which is first run Impact on Wednesdays and early Sat morning at like 1am on one of the 5ive channels. ROH (2020 era) and ROH on HDNet is also on Showcase which is "Fight Network UK" from 9pm.

"What if we did Battle of the Tough Guys with Babatunde as Zeus?"



"What if we did an Antifa angle?"



Please put this company out of its misery.
