Rooting for WWE UK to not be a 3-hour weekly program, but to have a big enough roster of its own to split into 2 separate 2-hour weekly programs.

I'd be surprised since it has NXT branding, if the weekly show was more than a hour long.

It'll likely be the same format as NXT, but with mostly British talent (plus Aussie in Storm, NZ in Banks and Portugal in Killer Kelly), and maybe a couple of guest stars from NXT per taping weekend.

Gotten through Takeover and I'm with Lanza on coming away from the show done with Nikki Cross.

I guess I don't mind that her character is "she's crazy", but that's not really enough and they've done a terrible job (no job) of explaining her. Aside from the obvious, macro question of "why is she doing any of this", there's so many loose threads to this Shayna feud. Does she like pain or does she not? Does she care about the title or doesn't she (and why)? Does she care about standing up for Dakota or does she not? It's like they can introduce and un-introduce whatever they want and justify it as "well, she's crazy". Didn't get into the match at all and the finish was terrible because, again, they introduced (or re-introduced) the idea that she likes pain completely out of the blue and it completely contradicts the idea that she wants the title, because she willing lost, because..... well, because she's crazy. Great.

She really should be in TNA's goofball women's division instead.

WWE UK Tournament and WWE NXT UK Championship Night 1 and Night 2 were absolutely fantastic television. Many 4* and better matches. Zack Gibson shocked the fvck out of me with how great he looked both days. Undisputed Era, too, was fantastic over the two days.

The Black/Ricochet v. EC3/Dream tag match was straight out of a Saturday Night's Main Event type tag hodgepodge. I thought it was done perfectly as this exhibition type match.

Loved Shayna v. Toni.

Great event. 10/10 would recommend.

Absolute BANGER of a tag title match on tonight's NXT between Mustache Mountain and Undisputed Era

Taken in a vacuum by itself, it's an excellent match, but taken as part of a feud thats gone on the last month or so, it was NEXT LEVEL.

These dudes have been on absolute fire, giving us:
3 v 3 at UK Tourney night 1 with full BSS v UE
2 v 2 at UK Tourney night 2 with Mustache Mountain v UE
3 v 3 on NXT with MM + Ricochet v UE
and tonight's match

Throw in UE's feud with Dunne and the 1s and 2s (Birch and Lorcan) and another month or so worth of hot matches


holy cow, these guys need to fight forever and Undisputed Era needs to be considered for tag team of the year

Awesome match, for sure.

I don't know how I feel about the finish. Initially I kinda groaned internally at it and wished they'd just done a clean tapout to cap it off, but I get what they're going for and why they did it. I don't know. Maybe it's a bit of fatigue on the melodrama, because we've had so much of it with Gargano and Ciampa, which I haven't hated, but I don't now need more of it from another feud. Or maybe I just wanted a clean finish since the match was so good and that's not necessarily a criticism I like making, especially when it's a great TV main event.

I guess that's what you get for bringing towels to the ring in the first place.

So perfectly in tune with the intermixed history of the former Yugoslavia, then?

I don’t completely understand what ur trying to say but yeah there is still tension between the countries that were apart of Yugoslavia. I think his name is based on Novak djokovic and being wwe I’m not surprised they’re lazy with his ring name

Its between Undisputed Era and The Young Bucks. I think the Bucks have just been a little better...but its those two, then its not close, IMO.

The Bucks have better angles and their business side obviously trumps it all. But, UE/MM was the best tag match this year so far.
