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

:lol: Of course it can. WWE has been doing it for years.

I hope they limit themselves to 2hrs p/week and a ppv every 8 weeks or something. And I hope they utilize jobbers heavily.

Doing a win/loss ranking system aren’t they?

That's surely part of the reason it shouldn't be s*** though.

It'll most likely be like WWE just a little bit more edgy. Just as TNA was. They tried the ranking system too.

Still, good for the industry with some competition between the companies and more opportunities for the wrestlers.

I know they said they're going to make wins and losses matter, not sure if they gave specific details yet though.

Good on them though, one of the worst things about WWE is the 50/50 booking bullshit.

Wow, Sky must have had those rights for well over 25 years?

I wonder what will happen with the PPVs.  BT show UFC PPVs at no extra cost.

Will probably just be on the Network and BT won't show them, i don't think Sky get the PPVs either.

I think it's more likely Sky ditching WWE than the other way around tbh.

WWE are in a real mess all over in terms of viewing numbers, and they aren't the pull they used to be for Sky. I don't think Sky were particularly happy when the current deal with WWE was signed either, since about 2 weeks after the deal was agreed, WWE announced the Network, and basically killed all Sky box office revenue :lol:

Mainstream english media is incapable of discussing wrestling without referencing Big Daddy and Giant Haystacks. It's like they're contractually obligated.

fake news

Son-in-law Conrad Thompson says the Ric Flair situation "is not as grave or serious" as TMZ makes it out, and says that this was a planned procedure that Ric Flair wanted to have before Las Vegas.

Gotta worry for Alexa’s in ring career. She’s been injured for a good while now.
