    I take anything she says with a grain of salt.

    In sad news, Shad Gaspard of Cryme Tyme fame in WWE was swept away by a rip tide over the weekend and the search has now been called off. Lifeguards got to him but he got them to take his son back to land first

    Yeah seen that, sad sad news but any of us would have done what he did in saving his kid over himself.

    Yeah this episode of Dark side of the ring should be rather intriguing, she’s already rattled WWE’s solicitors.

    The Owen Hart episode is damn emotional... the evidence of his fall breaking the ring boards and blood being left on the mat should have stopped the PPV. To think 5 matches went on after his fall with wrestlers knowing they’re working over the area where Owen had died is beyond stupid!

    I watched that PPV live I'm sure, it was horrible. I was a teenager then so sat through it think now I'd have just turned off.

    Remember the next nights Raw being a great tribute show to be fair, many wrestlers pretty much broke Kayfabe to give tribute to Owen.

    Been looking for this one, watched all of series 1 on virgin media catch up (via Vice channel) but they've not got series 2 up yet (or hadn't when I last checked).

    Have seen some of series 2 on YouTube but the Owen one doesn't appear to be on there.

    Great series, gripping.

    I was 6 when it happened and didnt have idea about it till my teens when I was looking to get trained but Jeff Jarrett’s promo was hesrt breaking. The show shouldn’t have gone on.

    I’m probably gonna get Kenny, paddy or one of our lovely mod team having a go at me for this but here is the video on Youtube.

    So, without having to watch the whole thing, did Owen's wife get any money from the WWE in court?

    Watched Double Or Nothing over the weekend really enjoyed it! Had it all, some real OMG moments (Stadium Stampede match, Casino Ladder match and the womens title match which was excellent), also some humours moments (Orange Cassidy!)

    Really got the AEW bug now can't wait for Dynamite.

    Glad to hear you enjoyed it Pacamac, the stadium stampede was a master piece with subtle little references and a brutal ending. The next big event Fyter Fest was supposed to be London but obviously this isn’t possible for obvious reasons.

    Orange Cassidy walking over to commentary asking how the match works then getting annoyed at the effort he needs to put in was hilarious

    Yepp that’s been brilliant too, it’s great to see the man who for 30 years protected Kayfabe and his character. Cannot wait to hear him talk about the now infamous Goldberg match

    Still enjoying AEW, even started watching their secondary show Dark now (although they had the champ Moxley on it this week which I thought was strange).

    Seems what was planned as their next pay per view is now going to run as a 2 part show (instead of Dynamite) in July. Hope that's not a sign the last one didn't do very good numbers (could be Covid 19 related I'd expect).

    Dark is considered the second show as in the smackdown to Raw but Dark has had some pretty good matches on it.

    Aew is firing on all cylinders at the moment and is very enjoyable especially after that Stadium Stampede.

    Fyter Fest isn’t the next PPV it’s the next Dynamite special after Bash at the Beach in January and the cancelled Blood and Guts. Instead of monthly PPV’s they’re doing quarterly PPV’s and specials to blow off/ advance story lines. Fyter Fest was supposed to be AEW’s UK Debut until the Coronavirus hit.

    Ah right see I thought of it as more of a Heat or Superstars (pre split rosters) kind of thing but I've only watched a few up till now.

    Right so they have quarterly PPV's but also these specials inbetween (a kind of half step between PPV and normal Dynamite). So are they always over 2 nights replacing Dynamite or is that just because of Covid?

    Ah shame its not in the UK, where was it due to be held?

    O2 Arena apparently

    Yeah it’ll still be Dynamite but as a TNT Special which is a throwback to the old clash of the Champions.

    The worldwide and Uk wrestling scene is on it’s arse at the moment the #speakingout movement has exposed the real shitty side of wrestling with some absolute shocking revelations against some of Britains biggest stars and a few in the states. There’s so much to this it’s hard to keep up with wrestlers getting Blackballed across the board.

    Also... in a change of direction from the negativity of the wrestling business. Chapter 5 of the Undertakers last ride documentary went live last night (which is absolutely brilliant) The Undertaker after 30 years in the WWE has pretty much announced his retirement. I grew up watching the Undertaker and wanting to him. He’s left myself and my family with so many great memories over the years and can only wish the man an amazing retirement from the ring.

    Which British stars? (even when I'd stopped watching wrestling regularly still tried to keep up to date with the wrestlers from this side of the water)

    I see Sammy Guevara has been suspended for some stupid comments made in 2016. Gutted as he one of my favourites seemed to be heading down some angle with Matt Hardy was looking forward to see what they did with him.

    Where can you watch those Undertakers last ride doc?

    Watched the New Jack episode of Dark Side Of The Ring last night crazy him obviously mentally unwell and coked up to fuck most the time (including the interview for it I think).

    .
    Jimmy Havoc, El Ligero, David Starr (canadian but big over here), Jack Galagher, Trent Severn, Jordan Devlin, Joe Coffey and loads more (again innocent until proven guilty)

    Sammy apologized publicly and to Sasha directly so really it should have been done there. Shame it’s ended a potentially amazing rivalry with #Broken Matt Hardy
