Apparently at a house show in Dublin last night he came out and attacked Truth and then later came out and attacked Kofi and Xavier.

He ain't getting fired.

Has someone checked Mike?

Took my boy to the arena to see them for the first time last night, never seen such excitement. Buzzing for him  :aww:

They put on a pretty decent show
Could it have feasibly climbed high enough to leave the atmosphere? ???

State of that Silver King video from last night's Lucha Libre show in London by the way, f***ing sickening.

The bloke has what is suspected to be a heart attack in the ring and basically can't continue with the match - gets to all fours and collapses back onto his stomach - Juventud then constructs a very awkward finish rolling him onto his back totally limp before Silver King apparently dies as Juventud goes around the ring celebrating. Takes something like 7 minutes for medical attention to arrive.

How didn't either Juve or the ref know something was badly wrong?

Won't post here as I only stumbled upon it myself while reading the news about his death, and I know a lot of people probably don't want to watch a bloke dying in the ring.
It could’ve been worse, I could’ve been born a mackem.

Wrestling is weird when it comes to injuries. It's sort of an unwritten rule that no matter how injured you are, you're expected to finish the match.

I'm guessing Juve knew something was wrong, rushed the finish, celebrated to not break kayfabe (again Wrestlers are weird) or alarm the crowd. God knows why it took so long for medical attention though.

A heart attack's not an injury. In a real fight you'd not continue if your opponent was dying so there's no excuse imo.

Saw the video. You can see the ref is even confused when he's counting the pin. Gets to 2 and stops, obviously waiting for Silver King to kick out. If the planned finish doesn't involve Juve winning, how do you not realise something is wrong when the guy doesn't kick out when you expect him to?

Rest in peace, Silver King.

He clearly knew something was wrong hence the finish, but would he have known it was a heart attack?

Like I say wrestling is dumb. Off the top of my head I can remember Austin rolling up Owen Hart to end the match after being temporarily paralyzed. The Undertaker continuing to be thrown around by Brock after being concussed. HHH tearing his quad straight off the bone, continuing with the match and being put in the Lion Tamer. Sting keeling over after Rollins injured him, but still taking the finish. Del Rio beating the s*** out of Sin Cara after he tried calling off the match due to him breaking his fingers.

Probably not (It was a fatal four way though, so it probably went on), but it was clear to even those in row z that he couldn't continue.

Like OCK says, you've gotta protect the business. Can't have a heel all of a sudden care that his opponent is injured.

Full crowd in the Spektrum, great atmosphere.

I suspect WWE may have underestimated the Norwegian market as they had brought a pretty low end spectrum of their wrestlers and the merch booth was practically non-existant. Wrestling has been on television in Norway since the early 90's so the crowd was fairly old I would estimate compared to a normal show in US f.ex, Hopefully we convinced them to come back again on their world tour next year :)

Also got a better understanding of why WWE put out some of the more cringey stuff they do that you may not think much of when watching on TV, like R-Truth and Camrella and their dance off etc, but makes more sense when you experience it live as it does help create a good atmosphere.

Managed to film last part of the main event :lol:

Been the best part of Raw for weeks now, along with Sami Zayn's promos. Can't wait for them to completely f*** it up as per once they start doing it in front of a live crowd instead of pre recorded skits.

As long as the good guy climbs up a ladder after losing clean, it's fine. 100% boost for both participants.

Interesting. I really hope it's good. I mean, it can't be s***, given the talent they've got involved, can it?
