    Probably the sweetest thing I’ve ever seen Iron Sheik say.

    I used to watch wrestling with my oldest son during the NWO, DX, Stone Cold, Rock era. Not sure if anyone posted these links in this thread but I listened to several of these and enjoyed Bischoff's behind the scene view of those days in WCW,

    Tomasso Ciampa is the best heel in the biz.

    planning on being there for WM, guess it just depends on the resale value, but you can't deny WM Takeovers have been pretty damn good

    Guess I won't know till closer to the date

    Wasn't the biggest Anvil fan growing up but loved the Anti-American Hard Foundation angle during the Attitude days. His death isn't even health related but a freak accident just like Owen. It really sucks realizing that Brett is the last one standing of that stable :(

    I wonder how the Rousey/Bliss match will go.

    It looks like Rousey is genuinely beating the sh** out of people. Her match with Alicia Fox was almost painful to watch. I actually like that she is rough around the edges in the ring; that's the exact way to book her.

    But... at some point, will the female wrestlers not be cool with that?

    Also, Fox is a great seller but Bliss is not. Rousey beating down Bliss won't be too fun to see. I guess it will have to either be a squash or have someone interfere.

    Ciampa/Gargano is a classic rivalry amazing they continue to find original spots and every match gets more brutal and violent. Closest thing WWE has that can come close to Omega & Okada

    One of my favorite TakeOver’s throughout.

    Guess on the next TakeOver card

    Ciampa/Black II
    Kairi/Winner Of Mae Young tourney
    Ricochet/Velveteen or/and Cole II
    Undisputed Era/War Raiders
    Pete Dunne/NXT UK contender

    Shayna Bayzler probably comes up, I think EC3 could..if not Velveteen will

    Call me up Vince.


    That was ballsy. I’m glad that he finally got a takeover win. I believe that’s his first. Could be wrong.


    Also, the main show is tonight. My bar is low, so my expectations may be exceeded.

    And finally, it’s horseshit that Alexa bliss will have a match with Trish Stratus.

    Ricochet/Cole stood out above the rest.

    My only issue with Ricochet is he didn't sell some of Cole's offense enough. I know he likes to work fast-paced but I prefer it when guys don't bounce back seconds later from devastating moves showing no ill-effect.

    No, his 1st win in NXT TakeOver was against Kassius Ohno aka Chris Hero during Royal Rumble weekend.

    That was some high level trolling by Vince last night. Everyone was expecting the cash in. Gonna be a hostile crowd for RAW

    Pretty much, Reigns will get those hands probably in the first segment but I think K.O. interferes. Glad that the belt will be present on a weekly basis. I know we've seen it a bunch but I really want an Intercontinental title rematch Dolph and Seth have such good chemistry but I have a feeling Ambrose will turn on Seth soon so it would only make sense that they have the title to fight over, we'll probably get a Dolph & Mac vs Seth & Ambrose should be interesting or predictable

    For those who follow closely, what the hell are they doing with Bobby Lashley? Was one of my favorites back when I was a kid... it's crazy that someone with his size and history in the business isn't playing a key story role or competing for a championship.

    Also, Lesner retiring?
