    Professional Wrestling: Irish War Painting II

    Glad Owens has gone Face again. It doesn't really makes sense, given how he turned on the New Day, but that was dumb anyway so... Folk love him, and his skills on the mic are off the charts, he's got everything a Tweener champ needs. Imagine, if you will, him taking on AJ, but this time with the roles reversed.

    Spiderman: Far From Home, Near to Spoilers

    I just got back from it, pretty damn great. Nailed Mysterio for me, I don't think they could have done him much better, and good that they added how much it shook Peter. The Aussie Skrulls are back! Not a fan of Peter Parker's identity being widely known, hopefully they know where they're going with this. Nice to see JK Simmons. We accidentally booked this weird viewing experience, where some scenes were extended onto the walls of the cinema. It was bloody awful, it kept drawing your attention from the focus of the frame.

    Cricket 35: Bat first, bat often

    Unfortunate decision, but shouldn't have used up the review.

    Professional Wrestling: Irish War Painting II

    I actually watched an episode of Raw for the first time in months, because everyone said it was a marked improvement. And it was pretty good actually, still some poor stuff, but alright. Them weirdly fumbling around commercial breaks is very odd, the Kanelis stuff was peak Vince, this Wild Card rule has to go, and I'm not sure if you knew this but Becky and Seth are in a relationship! Worried for the Street Profits, just because I like them and call ups seem to be getting shafted. But AJ heel turn especially was good, and the Tron getting smashed up was silly fun. And this 24/7 nonsense is charming, and I'm so excited to see Spud getting to express himself properly.

    At this point I'd say the sell-out buzz is worth more than actual ticket revenue. Hindsight's a lovely thing, but there's merit to being cautious, the market for AEW is still very unclear. It's magnified in contrast to WWE's poor sales for Stomping Ground (originally backlash, until they realised it'd look like Saudi Arabia Backlash...) Also here in the UK, they're (WWE) trying to run an NXT-UK show in Cardiff on August 31st, when not only is there a New Japan show in London, but there is a Wales/Ireland Rugby World Cup warm up game in Cardiff. Hotel prices are already through the roof.

    I can only imagine it's loyalty to Vince.

    Didn't watch it, but heard it was terrible. There's footage out there of Goldberg collapsing outside the ring after the match. It's terrifying stuff, both guys need to be done, the problem is will either want their final match to be in Saudi? It took a damn long while, but I finally cancelled my Network subscription. It hardly makes a difference but I don't want to support what they're doing. I'm clearly in the minority here, but I couldn't care less what Punk does.

    DCEU: Suicidal Insanity

    Personally speaking that poster is way too busy. Wonder Woman looks small and lost in the details of it. If we are comparing it to Thor Ragnarok, note how much clearer this poster is. YMMV however.

    I can understand stabbing heads, but why stab spikes and walls?

    UK Politics: The End of May

    Well I guess we're not having IndyRef2 as Sajid 'won't allow' it. I have no idea which of the Tory candidates I'd dislike the least.

    Yeah, had to watch it over the course of two days due to timezones. But it was a damn good show, standouts for me were Cody/Dustin (holy shit that was a lot of blood,) and SCU vs the Chinese guys. I'm not nearly as impressed by Jericho, as Jericho seems to think we all are, but whatever, he's the big name star. Jack Whitehall was an odd appearance, but then FUCKING BRET HART! It's a lovely belt. The Bucks aren't really my type (enjoyable but not too special,) but the Lucha Brothers are incredible. For a first (I kind of think of it of the second though) PPV it's a great start. Really looking forward to Moxley cutting loose (have you seen his after show promo?,) Hangman getting a push, more good Tag Team matches. Also super happy to see Jimmy Havoc up there.

    They got super unlucky, won the popular vote. I was a big fan of Icelands Hatari for multiple reasons.

    I missed the first two, Russia seemed to have been the best so far.
