the Benoit two-part episode was fantastic. I know it sucks what he did, but damn did I love watching that dude perform. I remember the day it happened, finding out the news and just not being able to believe it. Very solid watch.

Very sad indeed. Saved his son but taken too soon.

Anybody else keeping up with all the allegations being thrown around the wrestling community since the end of last week? Geez it's enough to make your head spin. NXT UK seems to be breading a rape culture over there as they've been hit the hardest. But others such as Joey Ryan and now Sammy Guevara have too.

Personally, I'm in shock that there are allegations against the Spanish Sex God and the Original Bro. :roll:

On a less depressing note, has anyone been watching The Last Ride? It completely breaks kayfabe, so if you don't want to see the Undertaker as Mark, maybe pass, but it shines a lot of light on the last few years of his career. My wife and I both watched it and both loved it.

I didn't watch it but heard it's good (not an Undertaker fan). Heard he basically retired so that did make me happy.

As for the product, it's complete garbage! NXT is the most exciting WWE programming right now. Smackdown is and always will be the B show while Raw is an absolute trainwreck. Anyone actually enjoying the Street Profits/Viking Raiders "Anything you do, I can do better" challenge? I just wish they'd scrap that storyline like the Lana/Lashley one. Both of those IMO are 2 of the worst storylines all year.

On another note, enough though they billed it as "The Greatest Match of All Time," (even though it wasn't), the Edge/Orton match from Backlash was actually pretty darn good.

I did enjoy the Edge/Orton match as well.

I've watched the first part of The Last Ride. Need to get to the rest as I really enjoyed the first part.
Go ahead, make my millennium.

Raw underground? Seriously? Wow, Raw and Smackdown are painful to watch now. The only WWE related product I can stomach is NXT.

Same, except I don’t even watch NXT anymore. AEW only now...

NXT is tolerable but AEW is winning right now IMO as the best wrestling show on TV. And the way Jericho continues to reinvent himself time after time just continues to amaze me.

I still watch all 4. They each have some things I like and a lot that I don't, but I'm sticking with it. I have to say, WWE has me interested. There's actual storylines. They're effing weird, but they're stories.

RAW has Underground and the apparent poisoning angle
NXT has the Kieth Lee era, the North American qualifiers and the Cole/McAfee feud.
and SmackDown has the Fiend/Alexa/Braun story.
Plus, whatever they decide to do with Retribution.

Whether all this turns out to be good or terrible, I'm interested.

I was tempted to follow the good brothers and start watching Impact, but I can't bring myself to do it.

I watch all 4 myself but the only shows I'm vested in are AEW and NXT. Pat McAfee is a tool and I knew the spot of Adam Cole on his show was a work. Raw Underground is laughable and no idea but WWE will screw up this Retribution storyline. Just glad they're finally done with the Lana/Lashley storyline. Man I was done with that after week 1!

Also I must say, I don't mind, in fact, even enjoy Bayley and Sasha having all the belts between them.

So Paul Heyman with Roman Reigns and a Reigns heel turn? I think it's too little, too late. Should have done it a few years ago when WWE was forcing him down our throats and he was getting booed out of the building. Guess we'll see how this turns out.

It may be late, but after Friday and tonight, I wouldn’t say it’s too little. Roman is a great heel and with Heyman is going to be a much more interesting champion than anyone else they could have put the title on. Add to that the hot/creepy Alexa Bliss/Fiend angle and the Big E singles run and I’m more interested in Smackdown than I’ve been in months.
