I'm trying to watch Impact now, it's dire. Hogan knows fuck all about everything. It's nice seeing Nash, Hall and X-Pac i'll admit, but meh. Plus, that Eric Young guy, he's as believably threatening as a level 5 Magikarp.

P.S. What in the fucking hell happened to Shannon Moore?

Due to the lolcano in Iceland, Most of the Raw stars are still stuck in the UK and are going to miss the show! Also the british guy in the X=Division match tonight is stuck.

doug williams the X-Division champion
this could lead to a very interestion week in the wrestling world
they are saying raw will be full of the raw undercard who were not on the tour and the smackdown crew and wrestlers.. this will lead to the raw guys taking over smackdown
there is even talk that this could affect next sundays Extreme rule ppv next weekend too

I have a feeling they;d get back for the PPV.

I imagine Raw will build the Smackdown matches and also they'll do pre-taped interviews and play them on the titantron or something. Should be intresting to watch.

SPOILERS AHEAD.




Haha, oh wow.

Lockdown team thing followed exactly the same formula as the 1997 WCW ppv I watched a while back.

Team WCW v Team nWo (Hogan v Flair)
nWo (Sting) takes out a member of WCW (Hardy)
Talks of the loser of the match leaving the company for good.

This is just getting awful. Not bad matches, it's just the plot is so fucking predictable.
EDIT: Can sting even wrestle any more? I don't think I've seen him use anything but the bat for the entire time he's been back.
EDIT: Scrap that, they now have Jeff Hardy and beer money ontop of a hell in the cell with a table set up and a ladder being picked up. This is looking potentially awesome.
...
It was awesome.
EDIT: Flair and Hogan just came back. Hogan just YOU!'d. Shits about to get real.
EDIT: Bischoff came into the ring. Shit looked like it was about to be gay. Gave hogan brass knuckles. Shit was not gay. It was awesome.

And no, I don't have any idea why I'm updating as I watch :lol:

Raw was ... different tonight, with 99% of the roster stuck in ireland it fell to HHH and the Smackdown roster to fill the void, over all it was done well for 2 hours of live tv put together on the fly. highlights were HHH promo at the open to explain the situation which led to a confrontation between him and CM Punk.
Undertaker vs Swagger was good
HHH/Edge/Rey vs Jericho/Galows/Punk was entertaining

impact ive only read the reports but it made me really excited to see it this saturday :o
if you want spoilers go look them up :P

the plan for Smackdown tapings tonight was to have the Raw stars who were stranded do the show but as its looking incresingly likely that they still wont be back in time its gonna be a normal Smackdown show. no word yet what the deal is with the NXT rookies and the plans for their show which is to be recorded before SD tonight.
