    Vader has sadly lost his battle against his many health problems over the last few years and has died. I could talk for pages on Vader, I really could, I remember first seeing him in WCW when it was on ITV and he was such a badass, I saw tapes of his stuff and he was stiff as hell and really for me he was such a standout in WCW, I remember always hoping he would come to WWE and when he did he came in strong but for whatever reason it just didn't seem to work out and he never won a title let alone the big one in WWE despite headlining Summer Slam 95 against HBK. His first year was very solid in 95 WWF, but nothing recaptured his WCW and Japan work. I also really enjoyed him in Boy Meets World. He has been pushing to get in the Hall of Fame for a while in WWE and now its too late for him to do it, but I bet he gets added next year now. Pisses me off so much that. Those of you who haven't ever seen much of Vader, go check him out he, alongside Bam Bam, two of the greatest big men there ever was.

    Godiva Festival 2018

    Whilst I agree its the strongest in terms of name power for a while, it does absolutely nothing for me whatsoever so will probably give it a miss. I only popped over on the Saturday for a bit last year and wasn't too great. Shame this has had some cracking line ups in the past but seems to be heading in a pop direction instead of the indie/rock way it always was.

    I missed most of MITB cus the spoilers got out but I did watch all 3 womens matches as I didn't have those spoiled. The Womens MITB match was absolutely horrid. The timing throughout was amateurish, it was so, so bad. Matches with too many people in are never good IMO. The Carmella - Asuka booking was some of the worst I've ever seen, Why was Asuka just standing there for like 20 minutes!!! So stupid. Jax - Ronda was ok for what it was I guess, now dont let Jax near that title ever again, infact just get rid of her, shes fucking shite and always will be. Regarding the mens MITB, Braun has been in the position to take the title from Lesnar multiple times, why does he need to briefcase to do it this time. Surely he HAS to this time, I guess they just wanted Lesnar to be longest champ to get rid of Punks record. How petty the WWE can be. Regarding Cass I said before I thought he would get lost in the shuffle well now he's just lost completely. I wonder if impact will bring him and Enzo in as a team? I don't think they are needed in Impact mind, apart from to beef up the tag roster. I don't see Cass in too much demand anywhere to be honest, hasn't really done it in WWE and if his attitude stinks they why bring that in?

    Mutiny 2018 (Cancelled)

    I was there, they took him away in a police car. This was V festival 2008 I believe. He had about 8 pills on him and some weed. Meanwhile me and my mate sat down on the grass thinking damn what will happen to him now and these two guys sat down said was that your mate, asked us what he had etc, they showed us the backpack they had which was FULL of pills, one of them went in, the other threw it over the fence to him and then we all went in and my mate bought a bunch off them. Oh and this was very early on in the day, like 1pm.

    Mutiny 2018 (Cancelled)

    Away from all the chat above, Im wondering here, so festivals in general, drugs are banned, sometimes you have police on entry, sniffer dogs etc. I had a friend in the past get caught on entry from campsite into the arena by police, they took him away in a police car, caution, took it off him, released. So now theyre having these testing stations, whats the situation here, the police aren't going to hang around it trying to take things away? Its all a bit, I dunno, I can't see people buying onsite then going up to one of these things to test. It just seems more a thing for the festival to be able to continue to have a license. The sounds of it, what i've read that no-one is actually talking about this festival, its never coming back. Because its trouble every year. I just hope this thing actually saves lives.

    Childrens TV

    OK so here's the thing I was trying to think back of the Childrens TV shows I watched when I was younger and I can't remember the titles of them all so I tried having a look online and its really hard to track down TV listings from back in the day, so can anyone who watched childrens TV 80's-90's, please talk about anything you watched. Im mainly trying to think of stuff that was on Channel 4. I can remember they had Saved by the Bell, Eerie Indiana, California Raisins, Prostars, Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors, Sharky and George, The Girl from Tomorrow. A lot of these shows were the best but people might not remember them, so anyone remember any channel 4 shown children shows?

    Victorious Festival 2018

    I think its just a little chill out area sort of thing. Probably where the Butserfest stage was last year, cus that part of the site is really underutilised

    So ALL IN sold out in less than an hour, thats great news. I also just saw ITV have been filming the WOS shows the last couple of days, seems like spoilers are pretty hard to come across but I saw a few bits, World Title in effect and a Womens title. Bad News Barrett appears to be a bit of a GM role, [is he injured or something?] and he is also on commentary alongside, Alex Shane and So Cal Val [who now lives in the UK], I like So Cal Val, always liked her on impact so this is welcomed, I don't like Alex Shane but seems like he is probably the booker. No Dave Mastiff on these shows but Grado and Bulldogs son are back, also Will Osprey is on the shows which immediately perks up my interest. Other bigger names are Rampage Brown, Sha Samuels, Lionheart and Doug Williams. I also saw Robbie X is there, I haven't seen him wrestle personally for a few years now but I have in the past and he's pretty class. Here's hoping it turns out decent enough afterall!

    Agreed with above as usual the post Mania WWE suckfest tradition continues. That show was utter GARBAGE, should have been called Backtrash. Rollins v Miz was overbooked to fuck, way too many false finishes, the Rollins knee injury that kept coming and going, seriously I love Rollins but his on and off selling of that injury was dreadful. The finish suffered cus as if he would be able to an effective enough curb stomp with the injury, it looked weak it was just hot garbage, I can't believe how many people online were w*nking off over the match, it was average at best, it just shows if you only watch WWE how low your standards are when you think a match it a 5 star. Fuck off. Nia v Bliss, Bliss tried her best to get a decent match out of Nia but Nia fucking sucks. She's so limited as wrestler and she can't give a convincing promo, that shit they're feeding her, its underdog promo work, but she's the champion, not the underdog, it doesn't work! The crowd shit all over it. Change the booking of Nia, she ain't a face. Never will be. What was next I cant even remember, I'll just talk about what I remember. Bryan v Cass was ok, but it was just a match that could have been done on SD, I like the storyline of Cass being pissed Bryan is getting all the attention coming off an injury and no one cares about him, I worry about Cass long term, I think he will get lost in the roster, their roster is just too big. Carmella v Charlotte was ok for what you expected here, too many rest holds, Carmella did her heel work well, Charlotte as a face I still don't buy into, it was alright, I liked the finish and was right choice to keep Carmella as champion. Tag match with the Raw guys was horrible I thought, no intensity, was just going through the motions, completely forgetable and no point to it whatsoever. Hardy v Orton I forgot even happened I just had to look up the matches, yeah it was fine but again nobody cares about this match, no point of it even taking place, nice rub to Hardy I guess, Orton needs to go away for a while hes just existing, seriously if this was the 90's and WCW was still around, Orton should be jumping over there. Now the WWE title, which should have been main event, solid match, I thought the chair spot was stupid, could have broke AJ's face how it hit back, these guys are good enough they don't need dangerous spots with a chair like that, Nakamura's booking is better as a heel, I feel you can buy into him more in this role than his face work, overall the match was strong, I fully expected Nakamura to go over, if they do put the strap on him eventually they don't want to wait too long because this feud is already kinda running out of steam, the promo work is nowhere near strong enough to carry this over months and months. Im already sick of the low blows being the focus of this feud and the finish last night was one of the worst in memory. Absolutely AWFUL. The WWE should be ashamed. So after this match came to an w*nk finish and they put on the dull raw tag match, they sent out Joe v Reigns last, the crowd were already bored minutes into the match, this match reminded me of Cena v Lesnar where Lesnar destroyed Cena for 30 minutes and then Cena popped up hit a finisher and won, the fast start of this before the bell was great, then they had Joe rest holds for 20 minutes and then lose to Reigns weakass finishers out the blue. The crowd hated the entire match, they knew like we alllllllll did how it was going to end, it was obvious, WWE did some smart booking at Mania, it was a fun show, this show was fucking shit. The roster the WWE has, its inexcusable. If you want a FUN wrestling show, go watch Impact last week, it was a really fun show, no match felt a chore to sit through and I tell you what the commentary was a hell of a lot better than last night. God imagine if WWE didn't have Corey. WWE will no doubt just stumble through summer until we get to Summerslam, where they'll put an effort in, perhaps.

    LEGIT question here. Really you have to have been a long time viewer to answer this, I watched since 1989, im rewatching every Raw from beginning and PPV in order so I have some good perspective here but.... If WWE had never signed Mick Foley would The Undertaker be revered in the same view as he is now. Seriously watch Undertaker pre Mankind. He just drifts from one fued to the other, big men, the year prior to Mankind's arrival he spent the entire year feuding with King Kong Bundy and Kama [The Godfather]. He rarely spoke, he was slow, ploding, his matches pretty much fucking sucked. Thats a 6 year span of crap. His stuff is like a Roman Reigns match now. Dull, limited, repetitive. Wooden promo's where he barely spoke much. He was that era's Roman! We get to this Mankind arrival though and in these past 6 years he's only held the World title once, back in 91 for the space of a few days. No other titles, yeah come to 96 and he's upper midcard but he's still just a midcarder. Mick Foley came in, he was aggressive, Taker become aggressive back, Mankind took Bearer away, it completely changed Taker for the better in ever aspect, he started cutting promo's good promo's, he changed his ring style, became a bad ass who wasn't going to take any shit, he stepped out the Undertaker gimmick of the 1990 Undertaker and pushed it forward. The feud lasted the whole of 96 and come 97 what happens, Taker is winning the big one at Mania. Without Foley coming in would Taker have got the title at Mania, would he have reached that level again, or would he have floundered in midcard against big guys still, just existing. People think attitude era, and think Austin and Rock etc, but the attitude era started in 96 in my eyes and it was Foley who was a BIG part of kicking that off. The other guy who started it all off who I can go into detail in another post was.... Goldust. But hey this was about Undertaker. I really think if WWE hadn't brought Foley in and done this feud with Taker, Taker would never have gotten to the heights he got to, they probably wouldn't have taken Bearer off him either. Whilst im here, if you're reading this and never watched this era of WWE, watch Mankind v Shawn Michales at Mind Games in 1996. God damn at the time when I was watching that I remember thinking damn thats one of the best matches i've ever seen and I was overjoyed when I read Foley's book and he classes it as the best match he ever had.

    Victorious Festival 2018

    Yeah like I said above doubt we are getting much more, the only big slot left is the Sunday early act. I had a look at who's on tour to see if that was why they might have held off but there isn't really anyone, in fact there's quite a lot on tour who HAVE been announced already. Paul Weller btw is playing Birmingham Arena the day before he plays Victorious now and its £49. Shows the value Victorious is. Slow Readers Club who aren't announced yet [dunno if they will be] are on tour this month and its £18. Yet still I see people moan about the cost of Victorious this year... Its still cheap as...
