    I did watch the guest GM run, or most of it, and it was a mixed bag. Some of the hosts were actually really great, like Bob Barker as an example, but some of them just didn't seem to know where they were. Ironically, 2 of the worst for me were actual wrestling people- Bret Hart and Ted DiBiase. I seem to remember the Bret Hart episode he came out, cut a shit promo, and they showed it again about 30 times, after which I turned off. The Ted episode was the first time I can remember falling asleep during RAW even though I used to stay up half the night watching it.

    Like most things WWE, it was an idea that could have been done right, but they dragged it on way too long, and by the end it got unbearable.

    A triple threat ending in a no contest? How very main roster of you, NXT.

    Edit- Add Lana, Murphy, Ruby and Santana.

    Fucking hell.

    Black and Murphy were so wasted but how have they spent weeks building up Black's return just to bin him?

    I know they haven't booked him properly since about 2016 but I just thought Boatman would be there for life.

    Fuck yeah, that just leaves Rich O'Shea and Gable to be liberated.

    Nakamura vs. Gable turning into a 2 minute match on Smackdown was a proper letdown.

    Black and Murphy will be brilliant wherever they end up.

    Strowman should head to Japan. He'll look massive and no-one will want to hear him speak so you don't have to worry about the fact that he's boring as shit.

    Btw, the more I think about it, I think the Omega, Pac, Cassidy match might be the best triple threat of all time. Always had 3 people involved rather than just 2 blokes fighting then one disappears.

    There are plenty of triple threats like that if you look outside the WWE main roster go-to formula of them taking it in turns to go for a kip. Which has of course been mastered by Lesnar so he can get paid for lying down.

    I am tempted to watch that match though. Might watch the Sting one too as I've heard he looked in remarkably good nick.

    I'm still stunned they fucked Black as hard as they did.

    The guy was absolutely solid on NXT.

    Despite the naps, no Triple Threat is ever touching mania 20.

    Yeah I should stress that naps don't necessarily stop a triple threat being good or great. Manias 20, 30 had great ones with naps, Cena/Bork/Rollings too.

    I feel like I'm forgetting another Lesnar one as well but I may be thinking of the fatal four-way. He definitely took a nap in that one. Backstage to boot.

    They were both fantastic, I don't give a shit about Sting but I thought it worked well. Ethan Page looked good for once too.

    Boatman/Lashley/Drew was also a banger and that had a massive nap.

    So vignettes for weeks after making a new character for him, putting him in a feud last week, putting some new merch available for pre-order and a brand new theme all down the toilet...

    Just watched Double Or Nothing. Very good.

    Sammy Guevara vs Jungle Boy will be a ten star title match when it finally happens.

    Kofi vs. Riddle was really fun. Also the only bit of Raw which sounded worth watching, so I didn't.

    Baszler feuding with a fucking doll.

    Someone just took a very decent powerbomb over top rope off Roman Reigns though.

    Walter Jr took a very decent if entirely staged powerbomb over the top rope. Wouldn't have been hard to make it look even a touch more legit.

    Enjoying the Reigns / Usos stuff still but Reigns / Mysterio being in the cell, while probably fun, is everything that's wrong with having HIAC as a scheduled PPV.

    My biggest gripe with the camera work is the one where we now have a situation where someone is being hit with say a chair repeatedly. The camera jumps up and down following the chair.

    The camera will follow punches now sometimes.

    When Roman Reigns is in full mount and punching the camera will go from left to right following him, it's disgusting.

    Caught up with NXT tonight.

    Please let anyone other than Karrion Kross win the title tomorrow night.

    It feels a little like they're pairing the other four off to feud each other so I expect it'll be Kross.

    I also don't really want more Cole or Gargano title runs yet, don't see them giving it to Dunne yet and find Cool Kyle kind of annoying so I'm not even sure which I'd want to take it.

    Yeah, I can maybe accept the chamber as a "this is how we determine who challenges for the OTHER belt" post-Rumble tradition because multi-man feuds tend not to be enough to justify that sort of thing on storyline alone, but the Cell was better when it was the nuclear option for a really hot feud to be ended. Not I WANT TO DO A FIGHTING AT YOU AND IT'S JUNE SO LET'S DO IT IN A CELL I GUESS?

    Yeah but they're pretty throwaway and usually have shonky endings. Though that goes for about 40% of WWE matches.

    I feel like they've made it a multi-man match so Kross can lose without being pinned and then he moves to the main roster.

    Could even have him debut at HIAC by taking someone out perhaps.

    Sigh.

    That main event was brilliant when Kross needed a nap. When he was in it, it was just the same old shit from him.

    They really should have given it to Dunne.

    I didn't mind the bits with Kross in, I think this (so much as you can tell from a four/five-way) and his last Takeover he's looked a lot better. I'm still not massively enthused about him but he's getting better and it didn't feel like they were gonna end his reign yet.

    The show on the whole was fine but all the matches (bar maybe the ladder match) felt easy to predict going in which robbed it of some jeopardy. I'm enjoying Bronson Reed a lot at the moment.

    I wonder what's gonna happen with Regal after that closing bit. I hope they're not moving him to an off-screen role and this is just going to lead to some other sort of change.

    Apparently JOE! JOE! JOE! JOE! JOE! is taking over.

    NXT has apparently signed him to a contract but they couldn't get medical clearance for him.

    Tonga Jeff.

    I've not watched it yet but they seem to have teased Joe with about five different future opponents.

    Have to question what the fuck they're actually doing though between this and a bunch of stuff I've seen suggested they're interested in re-signing Black.

    I like that.

    I watched the clip on Youtube of his initial appearance with Regal and Kross because I'm too impatient to wait for whenever I get to the show, and it's a real pity it wasn't a proper full NXT crowd there just to give it that proper molten pop. I wonder how long the "I can't let you be a competitor" thing will last.
