Anyone watching the wrestlers on Netflix ? About ovw al snow comes across as a complete legend
Yes been watching that. Enjoying it. Good insight into this kind of thing, even if at a low level, and the doc is well constructed following each persons story. Think ive got the final episode or two still to watch.

Anyone watching Payback tonight>

Very much one of the B Shows, but the potential for a couple of cool moments if rumours (Cargill and/or Carlito) are to be believed.

Couple of matches in and I'm wondering if it's a wrestling show or a pizza hut advert.

Just finished watching. Triple H does like to do the 'copyright logo is up so the show must be over... surprise!' spot. And I'm here for it. Every time. Generally fun event. Not sure there were any blowaway matches, but generally fine. The sponsor spots are what they are, and we'll probably not get rid of them for a while, but I did enjoy Pretty Deadly calling them crisps.

Good to see R-Truth back.

Randy looked bigger, and I don't know if that made him slower or the back surgery, and I'm expecting him to not be as mobile as before. We'll see a different Randy, like when Austin came back from his broken neck.

Fun to see Punk come back, interesting that there was no clear feud being set up for him. I've not looked at the wrestling news sites yet to see if there is a 'this was just a one-off appearance to pop the crowd and get people talking' reports out there. Will be fun to catch up with the news, having seen so many write it off as a possiblity over recent weeks, only to start equivocating later this week, and cover themselves so they can say they were right whther he showed on not.

PWInsider (one of the few sources I trust) are reporting Punk has signed a multi-year deal (no specific number given), that it all came together quite late this week. So, not just a one off. He's expected to be at raw.

Seth Rollins is either really not happy as previous comments would indicate, or is continuing to work and lay the groundwork for potential money making feud:




Drew McIntyre is reported to have stormed backstage after his match, slamming his locker and leaving the arena. No word on why (including whether it was related to Punk's return or not).
