That Lynch/Flair match was really sloppy.

Alexa Bliss is so hot...that is all.

Re: The 2018 Pro Wrestling Thread.

If anyone was wondering why the final match started so early, well, it seems that:

Spoiler:
Brock Lesnar is in the building and I can see Baron Corbin "screwing" Roman by putting him on an immediate rematch against Lesnar to end the night.

Rollins crashed and "burned it down". Jesus they need a new commentator.

Brock looks like he cut some weight. He looks good. The match however was a clusterfuck. That's how they're going to go off the air?

Since we never saw them again, I guess Ambrose and McIntyre were just hanging out at the top of the cage just watching what was going on.

WWE has arrived to the point where Raws and PPV's have clusterfuck, no decision finishes, thus making them the same.

That was so stupid looking the way Rollins and Ziggler went off the cage.

There was no reason for them to be involved in the match to begin with. If neither Stroman or Reigns were willing to do the spot then don't include a crazy falling off the cage spot. It made for a really pointless spot that was just shoehorned in because they feel like every Hell in the Cell match should have one.

Re: The 2018 Pro Wrestling Thread.

I thought HIAC was better than both this years Wrestlemania and Summerslam. Orton vs Hardy and Ambrose/Rollins vs McIntyre/Ziggler stole the show. Both matches were incredible. Styles/Joe and Bryan/Miz were also really good . I even liked the Main Event, despite being luke warm on both guys. It was really chaotic, but in a good way. When all 4 guys climbed to the top there was a real element of danger. It was a a total wtf is going to happen moment. Plus Lesnar returning was actually a pretty good surprise considering everyone figured he was done until he fought in the UFC. Anyhow, from top to bottom I thought it was a damn good PPV.

So again, Brie Bella (of all people) works on both brands like nothing?

Becky Lynch sent blood into parts of my body that haven't had it in a while last night...

Re: The 2018 Pro Wrestling Thread.

Okay so the Dunn/Ricochet match on NXT last night was really good even though there was no chance Undisputed wasn't going to interfere. The big negative for me though was the crowd constantly putting themselves over to the point of annoyance. Stop the chants and watch the damn match. Clap when something good happens and boo when something bad happens. Enough of the fight forever chants.

Re: The 2018 Pro Wrestling Thread.

It seems that "Last Match Ever" between Taker and HHH is as horseshit as the "Once in a Lifetime" between Rock and Cena. The huge, almost confirmed rumor is that HBK will come back to wrestle in a tag match with HHH against Taker and Kane at the Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia. Those guys in Saudi Arabia must be throwing tons of money around to finally convince HBK to come back for one more match.

WWE will be donating a large amount of money for Kane’s appearances.

Re: The 2018 Pro Wrestling Thread.

Not sure how many of you follow NXT in here but Pete Dunn and Ricochet put on one heck of a match last night. Best TV match I have seen in a long time and would have been great on a Takeover PPV. These guys need to mix it up again for sure. For me NXT makes watching the main roster a waste of time.

Word floating around on one of the wrestling sites was that they pulled in close to $45 million for the TGRR.

I heard the total earnings for WWE and the promoters in Saudi Arabia was close to $200M

I thought last night was a really solid three-hour block of wrestling: the Ricochet/Dunn match you mentioned, some really fun matches on the MYC, and then Cedric Alexander/Drew Gulak on 205 Live.
