I read this thread every now and then and I get sad. I used to love wrestling, would always battle with my mother to watch Raw at 10pm on Friday nights. Paying to watch all the PPV's and getting a rush and nervous whenever a PPV was on. staying up till 4am watching it before school. I miss those days, was probably about six years ago. I still buy the games, but don't know any of the wrestlers any more, sadly I can see by the time I can afford to get Sky back most of the ones I grew up with will probably have been released or killed off, some of these factions you talk about such as Nexus have nothing on the older factions. Is there anywhere on the web that I can watch the wrestling or get news? :(

Haha, I did the same thing back when I was at school. I'd stay up, watch the (then free) PPVs or Raw before school then go in the next day and fill everyone in on what happened.

I haven't had Sky for years so I have to keep up via the internet. Mostly I do it with live streaming and talk about it online whilst watching on another forum I post on. If that fails, I just find a download of whatever it is I'm after a about a day or so after it's aired in the USA. A quick bash on Google should point you in the right direction.

Personally, I have a feeling that you might have chosen a very good point in which to get back into wrestling.

I am slowly learning that any shoot interview involving Jim Cornette is fucking gold.

And that Paul Bearer has had a fucking grim life, including his wife having breast cancer and a dead grandchildren.

I'm still on the fence about them trying to turn McIntyre face.

I can understand why they're doing it, they fucking need some faces.

But on the other hand, I can't imagine McIntyre being face... time will tell.

looks like Barrett's staying heel then, cant imagen a rivalry with Big Show will wield any quality matches though :|

drew should be the number 1 contender :x not that im biased or anything :eyes:
although im glad its not big show, it seemed way too rushed getting ziggler into the world title picture. i mean, he loses the IC title, immediately loses his rematch, completely putting him out of line for that title, and then straight away becomes the No 1 contender for the world title? really?

Haha, Matt Hardy looks like a really out of shape Tyler Reks. TNA looks so bad at the moment, though that may be a bias, because half of the review page for each week of it on WWI is just the guy bitching about how he actually has to sit through the whole thing to review it. Also, Jeff Hardy walking down to the ring smoking a cigarette? That's not really very cool. It'd be like Cena doing it, bad for the kids really.
