Where are you from my friend?
oh, you mean the Tram that costs a gazillion pounds - is that still being built?

Sheamus / Mcintyre will be a proper feud if they let them go all out brawl style - I still rate the future shock very high on my top finisher lists.

I am from South Africa - but travel up your way (well, more London) quite often. Have some Scottish roots though - or so my grandfather claims

Ah South Africa, Justin Gabriel land, the wonders of the WEB eh!

Yes the tram fiasco is still going on, has made the place like a rubbish tip.

Can't remeber the last time I say the Future Shock? Sure it was on Mahal...lol.

We are all brothers and sisters my friend!

Yeah, 30 year old fan here. Been watching it for 22 years. Really miss the good old days of wrestling. The 1992-1997 eras are under-rated around here. Wrestling, like a lot of other things, was so much better back then.

In the 80s I used to collect the stickers from bags of Hostess potato chips.


I love professional-wrestling.

Loved the Bryan / Jericho match - feud please!

Skipped past Big Shows no talkie bit

Skipped past Miz / Cody match until Cesaro played human pinball with Miz which was awesome.

Had a grim fascination with Brodus / Tensai and Fandango promos - i actually like the team from planet Japanese Funk... For some reason...

Skipped Ziggles / Kane as I Am just not interested in either at the moment

Skipped ADRs bit

Loved the Swag/Ryder match - and at the end there wondered -->> are the ACTUALLY going for a white supremacist gimmick here? Bold! Even bolder for Teddy and Bookah not to bat an eyelid at thta promo and just mentioned how much Jack impressed them.

Meh'd at the Super Friends beating 3MB - but enjoyed 3MBs antics

Loved Shield promo - no way they getting buried come Sunday

Meh'd Rock / Cena end - but I kind of liked the story I suppose.

What did you guys think?

Overall, I was entertained. 7/10

Good and bad last night. I enjoyed it because it was more of a hype for the ppv show and it did the old schol everyone vs jobbers show like TNT and NWA Saturday Night. Plus we were treated to Jericho vs Bryan and Ziggler vs Kane. The rest of the show reminded me of the 80s shows where the big names faced a bunch of jobbers. I actually even liked the Cena/Shaemus/Ryback vs 3MB job last night.

Re: The Over 30 year old WWE fan thread

Despite my previous comment about the good things on Raw, the product has more of an SNL feel to it than a wrestling show. I like feuds, story, comedy, and promosin wrestling, but if it's going to be dumbed down, make it feel more like Memphis rather than Saturday Night Live. Promos aren't promos anymore, they are SNL skits (with the exception of Punk, Cesaro, and... Maybe Ziggler?). Attitude Era is over. Go back to the backstage 2 minute promos and focus on the titles. I hate how the IWC hates on all aspects of wrestling, but at times I feel the need to complain about some things too.

I wish that I had collected the MelloYello NWA cans back in the 80s. Or WWF icecream bar wrappers.
