So, it looks like NJPW is going to launch its own streaming service called NJPW World, with a formal announcement being made on December 1st.

I'm going to guess that it will be Japan only, but who knows.

@corevi: Weirdly enough, they own the rights to the Crow Sting theme, but not Surfer Sting's theme.

@milkman: It was more one of those episodes where you watch it, some things happen, you crack some jokes about the show and whatnot. Then the show ends and you realize that NOTHING HAPPENED and you basically sucked out three hours of your life. That may sound bad, but it's still not as bad as that go-home show for Money in the Bank (The one where the Anonymous Raw General Manager returned the first time and was revealed to be Hornswoggle) where you're watching it and actively asking yourself why you watch this and what dark path led you to having the inability to stop.

@papercut said:

@drx25: Little confused on how the points would add up on the "order of elimination" predictions. How would that work exactly? Do you need to get it 100% right to get any points at all?

Also for the "Name the Survivors" predictions, couldn't you just name everyone on the team and get the maximum points? Like if when Cena's team wins, if Cena and Ziggler are the only ones left, if you predict everyone on the team would you still get 4 points?

First part, yes, not only the person, but the order is key to getting the points. If you predicted this order (Harper, Kane, Rowan, Henry), but the actual order is (Harper, Rowan, Kane, Henry), then you're only getting 4 points for getting Harper and Henry right.

About "Name the Survivors", NO CONTRADICTING ANSWERS with the order of eliminations. If you predict Team Cena getting a clean sweap, then the order of eliminations prediction has to follow the same logic.

So here are the official rules:

  • You don't have to sign up, just make predictions and I'll add ya to the rankings.
  • Simply predict the answers to each question and, for every correct one, you get a point (unless stated otherwise); you don't lose anything for getting it wrong.
  • You do not have to bet on every match and you don't have to answer every question.
  • Whoever is in #1 after the PPV is allowed to have the Championship belt in their avatar.
  • If your prediction post is edited after the PPV, then you are disqualified for the event.
  • You must have your predictions in before the PPV/Pre-Show begins.
  • If the match ends in a draw (if Mark Henry suplexes The Big Show and the ring implodes, etc.), the prediction is cancelled and no points will be awarded/taken away.
  • Your final total (i.e. the one that will appear in the rankings) is the sum of all your PPV predictions subtracted by the lowest PPV prediction total. E.g. say I've done 3 PPVs (with scores of 30, 25 and 40), the score that would appear in the rankings is 30 + 40 = 70. If I were to participate in a fourth PPV (and I got a score of 20), then my new total would be 25 + 30 + 40 = 95.
  • The LoC committee has the right to change the rules if necessary.

@gorillamopena: Taking out Cameron, none of those women are bad. I mean, some might not be polished, but others are great.

Also, major Smackdown spoilers ahead:

Triple H announced that, if Team Cena loses, all members of the team are fired.

I guess that takes out any doubt that Team Cena wins, but, at the same time, it's not like the last time Cena was fired meant anything.

@oldirtybearon: Yes, them, Fandango and Summer Rae were taken by chopper from the house show to Raw. So guys could pull double duty for two different shows.

Also, Cena vs. Ryback is the announced main event for Raw.

@damswedon: So did Maxine become Dirty Curty?

@oldirtybearon: WWE aren't the victims with the Network deal in Canada. They willingly accepted that Rogers gives them a boatload of money so that Rogers would have exclusive access to it (Vince basically admitted it in the conference call where the Canada deal was announced).

Also, Reddit did some digging and they were told that the issue was from a third party unrelated to Sky blocking it (and it will not be a Sky channel). Basically, we're back to square one with this stuff.

As a funny aside, fearful of the reaction regarding the Network, they tapped up the WWE Network apron to remove the word Network (so it's just got a WWE logo on the left side with nothing else on it). Also, they aired an apology from Vince McMahon (slightly edited version found here) that was booed to shit and led to one match getting drowned in "We want Network" chants. I really hope they don't have time to edit Raw this week.

Well that was weird, on Smackdown they did a segment where The Exotic Express were trick or treating backstage and met R-Truth (disguised as a sheet ghost), who proceeded to basically bury Adam Rose, saying that the bunny was upstaging him and that no one care about Rose, just the bunny. Rose tried to brush it off, that they're communists they're all equals, but Truth kept pushing it until he just stopped, gave out candy to the Rosebuds and gave to Rose a rock.
