Principality Stadium Pro's -
Has a roof for the inevitable rain emoji736.png
Very accessible city centre location emoji736.png
Isn't located in the hole aka London emoji736.png

Though if Drew could swing it with Vince for Murrayfield or Hampden...

Murrayfield or Hampden would be great.

If I'm going to have to travel to one of them, I'd probably rather it was the Principality.  I've done gigs and games at Wembley and it's all very impressive inside, great stadium, but f**k me is it a horrorshow to get to and particularly get out of.  Also an absolute shitehole around it.  Cardiff on the other hand is absolutely lovely, stadium right in the centre, pubs all around, and is just as good a stadium if not better than Wembley.  No brainer really, particularly with the roof.  

Now watch them announce it taking place in the Durex Vibemaster Arena in fucking Delaware or something.

NXTUK getting fans back in attendance. Not sure it'll be much of a gamechanger for them since they're still filming in the BT Studio. I've only half followed it, but there's been talk of making the move to the BT Studio permanent. Which probably sums up its place nowadays as little more than a content and talent farm.

🤷‍♂️
shocked it’s been on the go so long tbh when you think back to it just being a power play by Vince to kill off any chance of WOS becoming a regular thing.

First notable appearances of Big Damo seem to be ICW and OTT. Had been hoping he would land in Impact, involved in some way with VBD or get some more US based work.

Supremely disappointed that he is doing ICW. Both from the point of how that company came out of speaking out and for the fact that they have regressed quite enormously in size, he's bigger and better than that.

Unfortunately, he's calling it home and talking up becoming champion. 

Feels like a backwards step since they're an even lower scale nxtuk. That's without factoring in the bad taste left by speakingout.

It’s pretty mental the state the UK indies have fallen into from a few years ago. World of Sport, NXT UK, Speaking Out and overall incompetence from the big players all one after the other killed everything - so much so it’s difficult to imagine a resurgence anything close to where it was. I certainly won’t be supporting any of the existing Scottish companies.

Never followed much of ICW. What’s the beef with them? 

I think most people would have associated ICW with a drinks and drugs culture. During the #SpeakingOut movement people got to hear the stories of what that was like from the perspective of women, trainees, and those happened to pass by their orbit in the likes of the Cathouse. Dallas, a lot of the wrestlers, and I think even some of the BTS crew were named.

The company's reaction wasn't considered to be great, and Mark Dallas is still in charge. For many it feels like nothing has really changed, they just rode out COVID with little consequence.
