  1. You'd think 80s acts like Def Lappard who were never big enough to headline would have been replaced with 90s acts like Placebo who were never big enough to headline by now.
  2. If they are doing a show at the same time as Download that's insane, it's going after the same audience but on the other hand if it's London park show I could probably get cheap last min tixs.

    It's the new edgy WWE, casual swearing from girlies now and next hot lesbians being put threw a tables attitude style.
  4. I think I read somewhere they have sold over 90% of the tixs awhile ago.
  5. Yeah, it's just roundabouts and concrete cows. I use to have to travel there for work so when I got tixs for the gig I thought it'd be ok to get there and back as it's only a 30mins train from London every 10ish mins, I didn't realise the stadium is so far away from the station and that once the gig has finished there would only be one train to London back which took over an hour.
  6. Great show but no there's no chance I'm going to MK again for a gig.
  7. It's 16 cans of beer or cider, which will be fine for me on the first day but then I've got nothing to drink for the rest of the weekend.
  8. Rammstein have been playing at Download and other festivals for years tho, I'm not sure why it'd be a problem this time.
  9. MK sold out instantly, I'm not sure they'd would hold back an announcement for that since they have also already announced Belgium/Poland/Sweden etc 2020 dates when they have Belgium/Poland/Sweden etc 2019 dates to play still. Logistically with the Belfast date a few days after Download they'd be fucking themselves over playing in the UK the same time as Download or making multiple journeys to the UK with their huge amount of equipment they have.
  10. So Rammstein look like a given. For their 2020 European summer tour they have a Belfast date but no other UK ones and are free for Download fest. I'm seeing them tomorrow, it's gonna be fucking brilliant!

    Huh, things actually happened on RAW, there may be hope yet. They are using people who aren't normally on to change things up as opposed to see the same wild card people on both shows, there were developments I want to follow and a holy shit match.

    AEW was good, the last two matches and the women's match were loads of fun but the chair shot to head seemed unneeded and the pre show was a bit shit.

    I'd love to see Samoa Joe as champ, he should have taken it off Brock as he genuinely looked like he had his number. It would have been a better pay off than low blowing Rollins or Reigns' distraction victory. For me I'd like see Kofi being more New Day-ish, go silly with it with a custom pancake belt, Booty-o confetti and a PPV win etc whilst not undermining he's a fighting champ.

    I saw you post that and thought you must of saw a tweet from WWECreativeish (who do great comedy commentary) and thought it was real, then I realised it wasn't a joke. This boogles the mind and comes off as a desperation play. I can appreciative it's a sign that they want to fix things but these guys knew their stuff in the 90s, you need the cutting edge modern day equivalent which is pretty much The Elite. At least one of them wasn't Russo tho. I've actually started to listen to the Bruce Prichard podcast recently and the episode I listened to today at work was the Paul Heyman one where basically as good as Heyman is his constant bickering/complaining/suggestions with Vince drove Vince insane and refused to work with him in a backstage capacity anymore.

    I bet Goldberg didn't think he meant Rest In Peace literally. What's really surprising is they didn't bother to advertise it, with ratings low and Raw only having £3k people in the audience last night (over half of the arena had to have curtains to hide the empty seats) you would of thought they'd hype him to get some attention. You can't sell tixs or get people watching after it happens. Raw being this shit isn't surprising but Smackdown has really gone downhill since Road Dogg quit. I only bothered watching two matches on Stomping Grounds, Bayley vs Alexa and Bryan & Rowan vs Heavy Machinery, and I enjoyed both of them to be honest.

    I've just finished reading AJ Lee's autobiography, she worked fucking hard to get into WWE. She talks about having to stab crackheads from breaking into her house on Xmas, starving herself to afford the WWE try out fee, how she was diagnosed as depressed but was actually bipolar so the meds fucked her up. There's also an interesting tidbit about how CM Punk (before they each other) was watching a women's match at a house show, called it shit and said to get some women who can actually wrestle so the road agent Fit Finlay put AJ in last minute which was well received. She contributes it as saving her from being cut from the development system. It was a very enjoyable read as she lets her personality shine when she (rather than a ghost writer) wrote it but decided to stay classy and positive by not naming names (like not naming the talent relations guy who told her she was unfuckable therefore not suited to WWE) and dishing dirt (I wanted to know about the heat with the Bellas) whilst good for her it's abit disappointing. Also WWE is still shit.
  17. I've just read the story of Jess Glynne pulling out of Isle Of Wight even though she was backstage because she was hangover from drinking with the Spice Girls the night before, what a fucking idiot lightweight if it's true.
  18. Most of them will either be delayed by a year, look nothing like the trailer or will have loads of bugs so you have to wait a few months for the update to come out to make them work

    In Japan it's considered disrespectful to chant but there's big "ooh", "ahh" etc reactions from the crowd. I personally like the rowdiness of western audiences myself, when there's something to actually be excited about it can lead to some magic moments. Yeah, finishers are more protected but there are still kick outs, in New Japan at least as there's multiple Japanese promotions. On the topic of New Japan I'm happy they haven't just dumped Jon Moxley straight into the Bullet Club because he's gaijin. Touches like him helping his opponent to that back after wrestling like heel wouldn't feel the same if he was apart of the Club. 'taker needs to get to that point first and if he carries on there's a real possibility he will die in the ring.

    That's literally too much at this at point, Goldberg manage to cut his forehead banging his head against the door during his entrance. That bait and switch kind of booking is one of the things that killed off WCW and just sounds shit. Putting over old wrestlers who can't even pull off their finishers against your current roster is waste, if they really want to be old skool then they should be putting someone over on the way out. Let the attitude era die before someone dies in ring. I've only watched a few matches so far but yeah it's a good show. I wouldn't say New Japan has a better presentation but it's the one I prefer. The hard hitting style and more realistic camera is what does it for me.

    It's not a Saudi Prince paying them it's WWE but it's neither here nor there as that match point blank shouldn't have happened. There's multiple times from both men moves went wrong which could easily broken one of their necks. This isn't a surprise either, 'taker hasn't looked like he can go for a while now and Goldberg has never been that good, even in his peak his botches were ending careers. The legacy will mean shit if it ends up killing or paralysing someone in the ring.

    The only person who needs to retire more than Goldberg and 'taker is Vince. I reckon they will try Sting vs 'taker at the next Saudi show. I thought it was gonna be another 50 man royal rumble rather than a 5o man battle royal, there's too many people in the ring at the same time to enjoy it.

    Tbh that's what meet and greets are for, all of the excitement for him goes when they have a holding lock for 10 mins because he's too winded. Anyone hear the reason why NXT UK Takeover is being held the same day as All Out? It's not actually try to compete with AEW but New Japan instead. There's an UK New Japan show that day in London and WWE contacted a ticket seller to see how it was doing, they find out there's only 2k worth of tixs sold so they decide to set up a WWE show in Cardiff to show up New Japan. Only it's the same day as a Cardiff rugby match which is fucking up the local hotels prices and drawing people away from the wrestling. WWE has now found out the 2k was only from that one ticket seller and they sold another 5-7k worth of tixs with others sellers. They have been doing this type of thing in the US a lot where they will put on house shows near indy events to try and kill them off.

    As opposed to people wanting to see a bad match? I'd just rather see him retire than repeats of that Saudi match.
  25. Unless there iss a leak (like last year) or the acts themselves announce it you wont find out until the fest.
