I'm a little confused about Brutalities. Can you do them in the 1st round? Is just after any long combo? What is considered 'a long combo'?

  • You cannot do them in the 1st round, you can only do them at the end of the match, whether that's the 2nd round in a 2-0 win or the 3rd round in a 2-1 win.
  • Brutalities in MKX replace everything in a match from "FINISH HIM/HER!" onwards. They are not the same as UMK3/MK Trilogy
  • The Brutality animation in MKX is the exact same animation as a throw or special move, except the animation will continue into a fatality style death, minus cinematic camera angles. This includes during combos, because a brutality in MKX is done during the match, to end the match specifically, not after the match has ended and you're on the FINISH HIM/HER section, because as I previously mentioned, brutalities replace FINISH HIM/HER
  • Each brutality has a set of conditions you must satisfy, like do 5 throws during a match, or 10 regular hits or something

Surprised that the Battle Royal is getting switched to the preshow. I would've guessed that the Diva's match would be the first to go, seeing as there are no stakes. It's disappointing that we won't see tonight's NXT guy debut on the real show.

Looks like the give divas a chance hashtag has paid off.

Also slight spoilers based on NXT, but if you thought the pacing of tonight's episode was weird... Apparently the Balor vs Owens match was originally supposed to run a few weeks later but it got pushed up to this week before WrestleMania because of reasons. So that would explain the lack of a build and why there was only one other match, and also why there were 3 commercial breaks.

Yeah, the non-stop recaps, video packages, and interviews made for a really lackluster show. I assumed it was likely some sort of weird Wrestlemania related scheduling issues, but whatever the reason, it's a bit of a shame that Balor vs. Owens wasn't given a bit more time to build. The one thing I will compliment though is that slap from Emma. So solid.

So NXT will be putting on a tournament at Axxess and one person from the roster will be picked to represent NXT at the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal. They also moved the Battle Royal to the pre-show.

I am saying they will have Balor win it and come on at WM to gauge crowd reaction. I am thinking they want to bump him sooner rather then have him be on NXT.

The odds on favourite to win that must be Adrian Neville, he's by far the closest to being ready to debut on RAW.

It's official, there's a weekly official MKX live-stream on Twitch where it was 1st debuted, though you've got one detail wrong.

Rage quitting involves players leaving the match, so they won't see the Quitalitity, the person left who wins will, the idea being that the victors are shown a cool thing, as in the exploding head. It rewards them and gets them back to picking a fresh online match ASAP.

You should watch the stream, it's on tomorrow in fact. http://www.twitch.tv/netherrealm

So some incredibly exciting news regarding Lucha Underground is coming from Wrestling Observer (supposedly)

They are apparently currently planning for LU to have it's own "Wrestlemania", working title "Ultimo Lucha". The rumor is that it'd be a 2-3 hour live event for the season finale, which would fall around August.

Best name ever!

Holy shit that slap was good, show them who's boss (well sort of, Sasha is the legit boss) Emma! I was disappointed about the lack of build up for Owens vs. Balor too but that match delivered and then some.

As far as the opening match goes, damn Alexa is still pretty green, some parts of that match looked real clumsy.

I suspect I would get very angry at you had I been watching you play DMC1 rather than reading this blog. Hell, even reading about the difficulties you're having is irritating me.
