@sethmode: I use full of it to mean they are trying to work their fans that they have an amazing TV deal. This is still pro wrestling and it's still carny as bleep. Until they show me what their TV deal is, I'm saying they're working us.

AEW still hasn't done anything besides hint at a TV deal. I'm thinking they are full of it the longer they go without saying anything on this front.

With the Rumble being today, I just wanted to say this thread is the best. The Rumble is something I look forward to every year and it's made better by this group of wrestling fans. Thanks for being awesome everyone.

The NJPW stuff really sucks.

The Rumble seems like it'll be pretty good and Takeover looks like it will once again be excellent. It's been a pretty good week of wrestling so I'm excited for that to continue.

This Nigel doc is already really good and I'm only about 15 min in.

I personally don't think WWE is scared of AWE. They have always kept people who are under contract through their duration. AWE has no TV announced and until I see more its a vanity project for Khan and that's all.

I haven't watched the main event of Takeover Blackpool yet but the show started with 2 terrific matches, 1 not good match and then had a great match leading into the main event. I'm excited to watch the main event but NXT UK still needs more time to grow and find their own style.

I will be checking the show out either tonight or tomorrow. I'm excited to see it.

There is a Nigel documentary after Takeover Blackpool today so that's most likely worth staying around for after the show. On NXT UK, they need some time to find themselves. They shows we've been seeing haven't really been able to set up longer stories because of how the recording went. I think with the next set of tapings they are doing they will be caught up in the ones they've done so far. I think give it a year and it will be just as good as NXT with some different flavor to it.

I didn't grow up with Mean Gene but going back and seeing all that he did these past couple of years since I got back into wrestling was a really cool thing. I got bummed out when I heard it but watching all of the old clips was a nice way to deal with the sadness I felt. I'd crack open a cold one for him but I'm on a cleanse from booze after I overdid it on NYE.
