Ya know, a wee 2 minute fest in the style of Mania's Goldberg/Lesnar match would be great entertainment probably. Certainly better than the last couple of Taker matches down there.

I think the Lesnar/Goldberg match worked so well as a sprint because of the explosive energy they could both bring.  Goldberg is still capable of that in short bursts even at his age, and Lesnar is a genetic fucking freak.  I'm not sure I could see a scenario where a short match like that would be any good with Big Marky Spooky Bones involved.

Having said that, I'll take a plodding two minute imitation of the WM match you mention over a 30 minute drudge.

I'm pretty sure anyone is capable of that over that short a period. Certainly, Taker looked better than he has for Yonks in his last Mania match, purely because he didn't have to do much. I see no reason why something like that couldn't work.

Any of Best of the Super Juniors worth watching so far? I've got a free night so willing to catch up on great matches.

I would imagine the actual fine he received would be substantially smaller, if indeed anything at all.

Everyone playing it off as real for a change. To be fair, he'll probably just make that straight back after he wins the 50 man battle royal in Saudi.

SHO vs. Shingo from night one of BOSJ is fucking spectacular. Canny wait to see more Shingo on this. Guy is amazing.

I heard a Batista interview on the Jericho podcast a couple of years ago that said when Batista, Y2J and the third man in their triple threat all got colour against company policy at the time old VKM blew a gasket and fined them $100,000 each.

Jericho was quick to point out that Batista paid the fine for all 3 as it was his idea to get colour.

WWE’s headed to BT Sport. Unsure if they’ve outbid Sky or Sky are letting it go, end of an era anyway.

Shingo vs Sho and Ishimori vs Dragon Lee from night 1 and Taguchi vs Yoh from night 2 are the must sees so far. Will catch Night 3 later so will advise further...

SHO has another cracker on night 2 with Dragon Lee. Getting the impression that this is the big breakout tournament for him. Hopefully that means also dropping that name.

Looks like WWE is leaving Sky Sports, to be picked up by BT as the contract expires this year.  Expect this won't mean a huge amount to those that don't watch RAW and Smackdown though.  Live in hope that somehow they manage to get both of those on the network within a couple of days of broadcast, as then I'd actually be quite interested in watching (parts of) it, but expect there's far more than a Sky TV deal stopping that.

BT would only go with a reduced offer for that sort of thing, so I reckon the deal would be much the same as the Sky one. And BT would be idiots to agree to a deal which would basically be an advert to watch the Network instead.
