    Fair enough, if that isn't your taste. I don't think everything has to be serious in wrestling though.

    The MITB match was intentionally silly and not to be taking in a similar vain to Star Wars or Game of Thrones. It wasn't designed to be some sort of story telling masterclass,.You critiquing it in the manner that you are is the equivalent of watching South Park and complaining about its lack of continuation. For the record, I think the WWE creative team are awful most the time. I just think credit should be given when it is due. They do get it right sometimes or we wouldn't all keep watching.

    Wrestling isn't realistic in the slightest so I think it is silly to act like it is. You could pick out several points in every match questioning why fighters did things. All that really matters is they tell a good story inside the ridiculous world that is wrestling. Wrestling would lose its audience if it tried to be realistic. There's already organisations for that and it is actually real. Wrestling is at its best when it is over the top and epic. Think Mick Foley versus Undertaker in hell in a cell, did any of it make sense if you were comparing it to a real fight scenario? No. Was it great? Yes.

    I'm not sure you can criticise the MITB main event for not making sense and then saying you loved the boneyard match. They are both very over the top and not to be analysed for realism (I could say the same about wrestling in general).

    Thought the main event was good, lot of fun and different. Much better than seeing a match without an audience. Otis is great, funny in a childish way but done well enough to still be a good laugh for adults. Perfect for WWE really

    'Funhouse' match was great, very original. Had me captivated the whole time. It was odd and had some good bits of comedy in there. Bray Wyatt/ the Fiend has so much potential. I really hope they continue to give Bray scope to make the character what he wants it to be. I think they did that with this 'Funhouse' match. I was not as sure on the 'boneyard' match, it was alright. Similarly to the 'funhouse' match I found it quite comedic but, in this case, for the wrong reasons. Nice to see them try something different with the Undertaker though as he can't really wrestle a great match anymore. More of these style matches makes sense for him going forwards.

    I think Tony could cause him problems. He's much more well rounded than Poirier and Conor. I don't think anyone would be favourite over Khabib at the moment though. Not even GSP if they fought

    Yeah, I don't mind it being ppv in the uk when the time is reasonable. Shame the card seems to be lacking the amount of hype it deserves
  10. What a game that was, proper derby. Shame we (Arsenal) didn't manage to complete the comeback but draw probably deserved in the end
  11. I can't see it. They just don't have much of a mainstream following. I don't think their stock has gotten any bigger since they coheadlined Reading a few years ago. If their new album is hugely successful then they are in with a chance. If not, I think they would just sub at Glastonbury if they played. Stormzy is a bigger name than Foals. He is also the poster boy for grime music which made him a landmark booking for the festival.
  12. I think the derbies in the prem losing atmosphere is a symptom of the popularity of football. There can only be so many die hard fans in football and the less die hard are likely to gravitate towards the top teams. Despite this, I experienced a North London derby a few years back and the atmosphere was incredible. Was great to experience as normally the atmosphere is awful at the Emirates.
  13. I don't think Foals are big enough to headline Glastonbury at the moment. They were meant to play Boardmasters this year which is a considerably smaller festival. 1975 are a good shout though, think they are in with a good chance.
  14. I hate to break it to you but most artists don't grow their fan-base 'organically'. That's just not how the music industry works unfortunately (there are exceptions of course). Regardless, it's the quality of the music that actually matters. I quite like Joji, at least it is different to the majority of pop music. His style is never going to be to everyone's taste.
  15. I agree, there does need to be a rethink for what constitutes 'clear and obvious'
