Is it just me or does Adam Page have the proportions of a dwarf despite being 5'11?

AEW was a very good show overall but too long. 5 hours is too much for a show.

You’d think they would have gone shorter given the criticism of wrestlemania. Although that seemed to last about 3 days.

Agreed. IMO 3 hour shows are perfect length, 4 hours for maybe a big show.

I don't like how the pre-shows are like an hour. Should just be 30 mins - bit of banter/hype - and a match.

There should be no pre-shows.

Other parts on his channel. All Out on there, too.

I went to an All Out party (well... 3 people) and we ordered through PS4 box office like a week before it.

Gets to midnight and the thing doesn't bloody work, apparently happened to everyone else using PS4, thousands of tweets about it.

So Sony's solution was to "go buy it on fite instead". This is after we'd already missed an hour. Ended up having to watch through some dodgy stream. Apparently BR Live in USA was screwing up too.

A total f*** up, and it always happens with big independent shows. They need some easily accessible way to watch it. WWE has "The Network", whereas AEW currently has about 2000 different options depending where you are and half of them are unreliable and s***.
I am currently happy. Its weekend. Time to unwind after a stressful work days.

Oh and NXT Takeover UK was amazing. Bate/Walter was enormously good, they both took an absolute battering. The match structure of NXT (US and UK) is miles ahead of anything else aside from NJPW. AEW came across as a bit of a spotfest and nothing really felt meaningful.

Loved Omega/PAC of course. I think they are going for a "fall from grace" angle with Omega, which I like.

Firefly Fun House was good, surprised Vince signed off on it :lol:

Bayley's heel turn was actually really good. The crowd popped.

Aye. :lol:

Bray vs Seth/Braun HiaC as the potential to be great, although not sure how it'll work if they do decide to put the belt on him.
Newcastle 4-4 Arsenal: "From impending tragedy to near-triumph via the most improbable route possible - 95 minutes that neatly encapsulate 130 years of football on this particular piece of grass. Newcastle, United, will never be defeated."

Sir Bobby Robson - What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses or the marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city.

Nah. But it was interesting. Her face was cool as it was happening.

I thought Omega sucked but this was good promo. Real stuff. Also really like how MJF interacts with the press during the post fights. Young Bucks need to take note. They just keep talking rather than saying one statement and then saying "next question". They just don't get it.

eh I can believe it he's put himself in the position of kissing rikishis ass, so long as something is good and getting attention money etc he won't overly care about a bit of mild mockery

It's a bit odd, isn't it? MJF stays in character and The Bucks drop the whole act.

MJF is p*ss funny. They'd be idiots to ever turn him face.
