there's not much more than that on RAW,in fact there was 19 minutes on Raw last week :lol:


Feels like there is more on Raw. Anyways, the WWE has people that can actually talk as well. If I wanted to see Hulk Hogan stumble around pissing all over his joke of a legacy, i'd watch Hogan Knows Best re-runs.

Kurt Angle aswell, when him and Jeff go at it, as hard as i find it to watch, they are some of the best mic workers going

Kennedy is decent, but the whole I SPEAK LOUDLYYYYYY thing gets old. Jarrett is an eternal mid-carder who had to start TNA to be anything else, and Angle is decent, but nothing stunning.

the great thing in tna is there arent really any john cena's running about getting a world title every few months, and they dont stick with having one of two guys main eventing all the PPVs.

I just think the wrestling is just so much higher standard, according to all the internet news, TNA may be changing its name, and alot of other things about the brand to distance itself from WWE altogether, bring back the 6 sided ring for a start then I think :yes:

They have some good wrestlers, but they have way too much shit. Like the whole Jeff Hardy fiasco, I still can't fathom how they would even let him go out to the ring.

That was very silly, but I can't condemn the company for 1 incident, that PPV was bloody good as a whole, in fact most of their PPV's are damn good

and the amount of talent they've let go / let contracts expire :x


do hope they bring back the 6sided ring, so much more interesting to watch, and give the FRIGGIN' X DIVISION MORE TIME ON THE CARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 8)

Aye, tna piss me off now (more than usual). They drop bleeped F-bombs and have blood just because they can!

Went to the wwe show in glasgow on Wednesday, was easily the best one I've been to! The matches were

Evan Bourne vs Alex Riley
Tyson Kidd vs Percy Watson (NXT)
Melina and R-Truth doing a promo
Usos vs Santino and Koslov
Eve vs One of the Bellas
Dolph Ziggler vs John Morrison
Randy Orton vs CM Punk (street fight although we had the choice of a 2/3 falls match)
Sin Cara vs Primo
Sin Cara vs Sheamus (kinda)
Sheamus vs Daniel Bryan
R-Truth holding a dance off
The Miz vs John Cena
R-Truth and Cena vs Alex Riley and The Miz in a post match brawl

A long show at 3hrs but awful awful arena! Sin Cara was hard to watch sadly, IMO the wwe people arent used to his type of offence and find it hard to work with.
If folk are interested the next tour in November looks huge with Raw doing 7shows in 7days, the tv tapings are gonna be in Liverpool too.
I can see by that look that you have in your eyes, you came here for metal to fight and to die!
