    So tired of these spots. I swear AEW has 32 dives out to the floor where everyone is just standing in a huddle a night.

    Also Nia is the worst wrestler in the world. God, she is awful.

    Why was Bad Bunny given a 5 minute promo?

    Not to be outdone by her partner. Shayna is the worst promo in the business.

    Merch mover and sadly the most over guy on the roster.

    Break up the Hurt Business for no reason at all and then squash the two new baby faces in what basically amounted to a handicap match. Raw is so awful.

    Suicide dives are the most overused spot in the business anymore. Most of the time they don’t even look good, just someone diving out the ring and lightly pushing another person who has to sell to the nines

    I think it was asked a couple pages back, but never saw an answer--how does the Live / Pause functionality work now on Peacock?
    Sometimes I would tune into a PPV 30+ mins late on WWE Network, but didn't matter bc I was able to start PPV from the beginning.
    Or I would Pause the PPV on WWE Network, and then come back 30+ mins later to continue the stream right where I had paused it.

    Does Peacock work the same way for live events?

    I think Peacock in its current form is not user friendly and thus a lot of people will be tuning into Mania at some point with no ability to start from the beginning.

    I'm not sure if you can pause for long periods of time but I also will be testing out the pause so I can put kids to bed and start once they are sleeping.

    I haven't tried it myself but others are saying you cannot pause/fast forward/rewind live PPV's.

    Their story has been going on for months now. At this point, there's not really much left to do besides a video package. :twocents:

    for all that time it's been the number one or two storyline on Raw. just seems weird to not give a segment on the go home show. we're talking about 3 hours it's not like they're short on time.

    V1 watches the shows weekly and I believe screengrabs the stuff himself. I dont watch raw anymore, but from him I'd assume it's legit

    I know the HOF is usually not that great. But it's even more watered down without the personalized inductors and crowd reactions.

    I just got onto the Peacock Network to watch the HOF and its still listed as live 4+ hours. So you can't watch. This weekend is going to be a shit show

    You didn't miss anything. Speeches were all super short. Bradshaw and Kane's were probably the best ones and the timing was still weird because they would talk over the fake crowd reactions to what they said.

    The "red carpet" interviews were weird too since it was just a red carpet stage and didn't lead anywhere.

    Caught the very end of it for Kane's speech. Thought it was a good speech but yeah those pre-recorded crowd reactions were awful.

    Walter just doesn't do it for me. I haven't been paying as close of attention as I once did, but a lot of the newer people NXT have brought in just don't interest me that much.

    LA Knight dude isn’t a NXT talent. He’s just like Drew, Roode and more of a main roster guy.

    Walter is fantastic. Dive into some of his stuff.
